Default The About Us page needs updating

I know nobody thinks about that page, but there are few things that might need to be updated. I don't think I have any system rights to edit that page, so I wanted to bring this to the staff's attention for discussion.

Page in question: http://vgmdb.net/about

1) Game Music Revolution Online is gone. The URL now points to a domain squatter's blog in a foreign language. I recommend removing the link (thus reverting the link to normal text).

Also, the mention of "GMRonline is the database site that's been the standard over the past 7 years" is dated. It's been more than 7 years since VGMdb launched. "Past 7 years" should be changed to a time period like "early 2000s."

2) J.G.M.L is gone. The URL now points to the Infoseek Japan homepage. I recommend removing the link (thus reverting the link to normal text).

--------------

All other sites listed are still active, although bysmitty's site has no news entries since 2006. Chudah's Corner now has a splash page with a message about coming back in a reformatted manner in November 2012.

I touched up some of the things you mentioned. There is an existing mirror of JGML, so I linked that. We probably need to write a brand new About Us section, particularly since our re-branding for Visual Arts.

Sorry, I have been away.

Thanks for updating the URLs to those sites.
