I know mod reuploades are generally frowned upon, but would it be okay if I uploaded some of my old files of mods that don't really have downloads anymore? (deleted forum posts or downloads are broken) I would credits the original creators and the download links would NOT be adfly. My intention is not to make money, but to revive some old mods and give the community a chance at playing some old classics.
I think a few threads like this exist (although from a while ago) and I love checking them out even if I wasn't around when those mods existed. But with the few people I've come across on the forums that are after mods from Release 1.0, Betas and so on I think many would appreciate it besides those on Reddit or Discord that are strong with that era that are looking for mods of the alpha/beta/releases I'd say under 1.5 [your 1.0, 1.2.5, 1.4.7], as Internet Archive and other sources like MCArchive https://mcarchive.net/mods/ haven't been too helpful (depends on the mod) if the links for the forums might work but the dropbox or other links don't exist or aren't reachable anymore (in MCArchive's case if they don't have the mod).
