I have a couple of suggestions regarding the Code Archive:

Link directly to it from the homepage, instead of the current 2-step link.
Link directly to it from the first pinned post on the Code Archive Forum, instead of the current 2-step link.

Change the Title of the old page to
<title>Legacy UtterAccess Code Archive Index</title>
or something like that.
Change the Title of the new page from
<title>Access Help and How-to - Microsoft Office UtterAccess</title>
<title>UtterAccess Code Archive Index</title>

Add a button next to "Report!" in the forums. "Archive It!". If a user clicked the button, it would generate a PM addressed to the poster with a text along the lines of "Hello [poster], if you have the time, I think the code you posted in [topic] could be a useful addition to the UtterAccess Code Archive. Please read the Code Archive instructions before posting your code. Respectfully, [user]", with the PM opened in edit mode.

Here's a draft of a text for the help file - "The 'Archive it!' Button is only for use on posts with complete code samples. It will generate a Private Message from you to the User who posted the code, suggesting that they post their code to the Code Archive Forum. Be aware that if someone has posted "Air Code", it may imply they are pressed for time, and we encourage you to work on completing and posting a fully-tested version of the code yourself."
