I was a regular poster at the old Black Vault
forum, and am wondering whether or not all
my old posts are gone forever or if they are
still online some place, or is there some plan
to resume the old board threads and restore
the old forum into this new site?

John is going to put them up as an archive site soon, he’s got lots of work at the moment so he can’t do it right now. 😀

I put a huge amount of work into my thread on mind control.

I hope we can salvage it. I was so disappointed to see the
old forum go down with all of its posts disappearing.

If you can restore the old threads and posts , you will
be able to restore your readership and membership
a lot faster.

Aye. A lot of people put a lot of hard work into a lot of topics. 🙁 I don’t know how forums work, to be honest, but on a normal website you’d just create a sub-domain and click a few buttons and it would all be saved in there for ever. It would probably take you longer to log in and enter your password than it would actually storing the old site and changing it into an archive.

I’m not sure how forums stored though so there filing system might be completely different, probably is.

From what I know of Forum storing/filing systems they don’t actually keep the post how we see them on the internet, they just make references to them but the posts themselves are kept in a different folder.

No, they are not gone, but they are not currently online.

Unfortunately, security concerns (on a technological scale) and the fact the code was YEARS old, prevented me from simply loading hundreds of thousands of messages into this board.

Although frustrating - it was a necessity and I had to do it. I hope I can get it to an archive mode soon -- but for now, it is currently offline.
