Ladies and gentlemen, I am somewhat pleased to announce (well totally effin' rapt actually) that I've managed to restore the last backup of our forum to a temporary home on our test site. I'm locking posting there for the moment until I figure out the best way to proceed further. All the content is visible though and everything works. Our temporary archive (ahem) can be found here.A drop menu with a link to the archives has been added under the Search button.
Everyone please note that your normal accounts and logins will work but there are
some restrictions put in place to prevent this becoming even more complicated.
1/ You will have your normal read and access permissions there.
2/ You will not be able to post.
3/ You will be not be able to use the pm system or edit your account details in any way.
Devious, treacherous, murderous, neanderthal, sub-human of the West.
