Thank you for your offer to help with the online guides.

My request here was about the User Guide in PDF format included in the 
LiveCode installation.  Please feel free to pass along any errors or 
omissions you may find there.

As for the web-based guides, those are in the process of being migrated 
to GitHub's markdown, and will be posted to the LiveCode repository 
there soon:

In my Community meeting with Fraser Gordon, one of the core team 
developers, he let me know that they're putting together a helpful 
Getting Started with Documentation page for the Github site, and once 
that's in place we can start coordinating community efforts to update 
the many web-based guides along with the Dictionary entries.

Regarding the 404 URLs, yes, with the many changes to their site they've 
had even more broken links than Apple. :)

A few months ago I submitted a request to put redirects in place so 
those links throughout our community can continue to work:
