It was an archive for the amazing. I would have loved to save around 5-6 threads from it. Gut busting laughter threads were in there. It was just really fantastic to show newer users some of the fun crazy shit we had on this forum back in the day. Was a real +1 for the forum. :[

Unfortunately for the most part from what I'm seeing it doesn't have the pages I need archived.

I'm not sure how much of Funny Forum Quotes I'd be able to salvage from it, I'll check into that when I have more time. Sadly Lagores epic story threads just might be lost forever. Thanks though.

Well, I just meant a thread. Not an "entire" forum dedicated to it.

Does this mean we might be able to grab usernames from the losers that stole them but never used them?

if they only have forum names, yes

i'm not sure what level of pruning we'll do when we migrate over. we might just move the userbase as-is and prune later on once linking happens, or we might try to do the pruning/linking up front.

in the IDEAL situation (prune/link accounts), this will happen:

1. link all site and forum accounts if they have the same name and the same email address. this will be the responsibility of the user to make sure these are in sync as there's no way i'm willing to manually check hundreds of thousands of users. i'm guessing many people won't see the announcements but there's not much i can do about that (i'll promote for a few weeks on twitter/facebook/here but some people still won't see)

2. delete all unlinked forum accounts

3. automatically create forum accounts for any user on the site who doesn't have a linked account

4. for any new registrations, both accounts are created at the same time (ie it's a seamless experience and there's no concept of 'create another account', and no concept of 'there is another account'. to the user, it'll be like theres only 1 account)
