Hi Alexander and welcome to the forum........
The only link between CD covers and here is that a few of its former forum members (including myself) are on here.
There is no other link!
I know nothing about Free Covers, I have never used it myself and I cannot help with covers not working on their site. If they are linking from their site to this one, that is up to them. I have not asked them to and I am unsure why they would?!?
*Universal Covers is its own independant site, and this means it may not do the same things as CDcovers used too
*Universal Covers 'currently' does not have a Cover Database like CDcovers did. This is because to host covers means having lots of space, and to have lots of space the site would need a good cashflow to pay for this. We do receive donations, but what we do get does not get anywhere close to paying for such space, therefore at the moment this site is staying as a Request forum - but 'possibly' could host covers in the future
*This is a request forum, if you have searched for covers / topics using the search bar and cannot find anything.... go into the correct section of the forum and make a new topic requesting the covers you need. If one of our helpful members / moderators have the covers, you will receive them not long after requesting!
For help requesting covers, see this thread I made on how to request them.....
How to Request a Cover
CDcovers will not be fixed unless a miracle happens. The admin that has overall rights has not logged in since 2011 and I cannot see him doing so anytime soon. So the forums has already died and the site is on its last legs and is more than likely still live and active due to a big healthy bank balance that has been built up over time from sponsers and donations. Once this runs out the site will crash!
Hope this helps
