Title: UglyBridges.com question
Post by: ixnay on August 30, 2017, 10:07:04 PM
I notice that UglyBridges.com has a login feature.  If one registers on there, does he/she have access to additional features (such as one does if registered on this forum)?

Registering at Uglybridge/Historicbridge gives one the ability to add data to structures (dates of construction, type of bridge, etc.), post photos of structures.

Sorry to revive this dead thread, but I didn't want to start a new one for what may be a stupid question.  Is uglybridges.com no longer in existence? I get a 404 when I try to access it.

Seems it, considering bridgehunter barely held on after itís founder died I donít think there is much more of a market for bridge sites.

For those who need the NBI data once provided by these sites, there's a backup from the Tallahassee Democrat newspaper: https://data.tallahassee.com/bridge/washington/53/

The website is broken...

I get "This site can't be reached"...

Must be a very recent development, as the Historic Bridge Foundation took over maintaining Bridgehunter.com. And it appears they site will remain online for the foreseeable future.

Thatís what I was referring to.  That site got saved because it was by far and away the best bridge site out there.  I canít imagine lesser bridge sites would have something like the Historic Bridge Foundation come to save them.

AIUI, uglybridges.com was renamed as bridgereports.com and the uglybridges.com domain redirected to the latter. It appears that it is no longer doing so.

A quick whois indicates that the uglybridges.com domain name expires this coming Christmas Eve. I suspect that the new operators of Bridge Reports/Bridge Hunter have decided not to renew uglybridges.
