    Apparently, it also changes their URL, which means the Wayback Machine sees it as a completely new thread. So, anyone wanting to ensure that the Wayback Machine is up to date with the latest goings-on here, has to re-feed the thread from the beginning.

    Working on it. Oh, never save the last page of a thread in the Wayback Machine. It may or may not auto-update, and if it doesn't, it won't let you save the most recent version of the page. Wouldn't want to give the impression that a thread's died, when it's actually still going on.
