It’s an age old dilemma. Keep archives older than a few years or scrap them? I’ve decided in the best interest of fresh content , new tutorials, and our reinvented vigor – to simply get rid of most of the old CodeCrunch tutorials.
Many methods used in these older articles and tutorials were out-dated, and are not in the spirit of where I want this site to be headed. So, for some time, you may get some 404 errors – but be assured that new and fresh content will be taking the place of the deleted archives. I have some great plans lined up for some tutorials and Open Source code for your to use in your projects.
I also took a real hard look at why I would want to keep the older articles, and honestly, the main reason for me was financial purposes. (Ad revenue) That’s when I knew it had to be deleted, I just couldn’t possibly sit on old content and expect that to carry the new site theme in the right direction. I did keep some older, relevant Photoshop tutorials, as I want to revisit them sometime in the near future as I feel some of the techniques can be carried a lot farther, and having the old posts to refer to will be handy.
