    Why no threads from before 2007?

    I was searching for The Flashlight's pedophile defense thread which had to be around 2005, but I can't find it. No archives out there I could find with Google... nothing at all.

    How did we loose all those years? Is there any chance of getting the back? Surely this software has a import function. Maybe create an Archive forum for the old posts?

    The board crashed and everything before Jan 1. '07 was lost. But that crash was like five years ago, so if they ain't recovered those threads by now, they never will. Too bad, 'cause some of the funniest ass shit was from that time.

    Well damn. That's really too bad.

    For some reason, I was thinking that maybe it was pruned out because the board was acting up or something.

    Damn, that really does suck. This place was funny as hell back then. Some fucking crazy threads in the beginning.

    Sigh...

    The threads are a broken image URL?

    I seem to be getting a lot of broken image urls lately. Is it just me, or everyone else too?

    As for the OP, yes, the big crash of '07 erased a lot of our early history, and for that I am sad. I do believe Elwood has it all backed up on about 20+ DVDs and I'd love it if we could somehow get this and restore it all. I think it's a significant enough period in our history that it should be available, if possible.

    Elwood probably corrupted all the data when he drew moustaches on everyone's avatars. :sigh:

    No point in resurrecting this old thread.

    Shit, I genuinely thought it was a RR thread, or I would've just linked to it. :doh: was confused why it would be locked .

    Sorry 'bout that.
