Archiving the 5+1 original Flipstarter campaigns.

Since the Flipstarter campaigns completed in mid-May of this year, one of the Flipstartar volunteers has maintained the hosting so that the original 6 Flipstarter campaigns remain available. Eventually bit rot and other issues will cause those sites to require maintenance and updates.

Instead of doing that, we asked Corentin Mercier to archive the original campaigns in a simple static format that should survive for a long time without requiring ongoing hosting and maintenance costs.

Here they are for the historical record on the Flipstarter Site and their Git Repositories.

link? am I missing something?

also, I'd recommend using IPFS to archive the static site

Thanks! A copy-pasted correction wiped out the links.

I'm not sure what the intention is for "archiving" via GitHub (unless they are somehow linked to GitHub Pages, i dunno), but what I had in mind was to host the 6 campaigns via IPFS .. I've gone ahead and just pinned the campaigns, which you are welcome to pin yourselves (as the hashes are "immutable")

Main directory:

If the DNS of flipstarter.cash is pointed to Cloudflare, it's quite easy to update the DNS entries of these sub-domains to point directly to their respective IPFS CIDs .. NOTE: this requires NO hosting .. it can be done even if you're NOT using Cloudflare, but it's a little trickier with the A records..

I also noticed that you can no longer "celebrate" on the campaign pages 😣 not sure what happened to that feature, but if it can be corrected, I'll be happy to re-pin 😉
