Because the moderators don't do any upkeep on this site. Most of the links are more than a year old. The pattern postings are done automatically by the computer and no one checks them to see if they are still working. If you continue checking the patterns on this site long enough you will find they eventually start repeating themselves. (I know because I did it.) While I won't tell you not to check the daily free patterns, I will tell you not to be surprised if the links are outdated and don't work anymore. I have been trying to get the attention of the people who run this site for months. I have repeatedly asked them to maintain the site and give a care about the people who use it. My requests have been ignored and I have never received any replies to either my posts or emails.
