I'm a small Youtuber doing research for a video on the history of Minecraft Maps. I've searched through the forums looking for the oldest map posted. While the earliest thread in the Maps and Modding section is "Lmaoboat's Giant Tree" by Lmaoboat posted on July 7th, 2009 (https://www.minecraftforum.net/forums/mapping-and-modding-java-edition/maps/1454460-lmaoboats-giant-tree), I found another map that wasn't posted in the section called "Half flatgrass, half ocean map" by PuyoDead posted one week earlier, on June 30th, 2009. (https://www.minecraftforum.net/forums/mapping-and-modding-java-edition/minecraft-mods/mods-discussion/1339396-half-flatgrass-half-ocean-map) As far as I can tell this is the earliest map ever posted. Unfortunately, the download link is dead. I was wondering if anyone:
A. Downloaded the map in 2009
B. Knows someone who may have downloaded it
C. Knows how to get in contact with PuyoDead, as his account has been inactive since 2016
Also, if anyone has similar information on Lmaoboat's Giant Tree, that would be great. Furthermore, if PuyoDead's map is actually not the earliest map, feel free to mention which one preceded it.
