The Resource Directory, a hierarchical directory of planning-related Web sites, was where Cyburbia (then PAIRC) got its start in 1994.
With the advent of search engines that produce relevant results, and the exponential growth of urban planning-related sites, we stopped updating the Cyburbia Resource Directory several years ago. Keeping track of every urban planning site out there, and their constantly changing URLs, was just too much work. Instead, we directed most of our resources into the Forums and other related features that received the vast majority of this site's traffic.
We first announced the eventual removal of the Resource Directory about a year ago, and placed a notice on all of its pages.
About an hour ago, I purged the database of all tables related to the Resource Directory, removed the link directory scripts (InLink 2, which is no longer supported), and removed links to the Resource Directory. Visitors stumbling onto former Resource Directory URLs (http://www.cyburbia.org/directory/[something]) will be redirected to the Forums.
It's sad to see the Resource Directory go. For those that contributed links, thank you!
