phpBB2 forum archive availability

Post by stevemagruder »

In the phpBB2 EOL notice, it says "The phpBB2 support forums have been locked and will remain available in this "archived" state for a number of months". Can anyone tell me if there is a specific date that these will no longer be available? I still refer to the mod discussions from time to time and would sure hate to lose them.

OK, thanks. So, May 1 is the date.

I wish there was a straightforward way for copying all the associated mod discussions without doing printouts. I guess I'm going to have to kill a tree. Bummer.

There's an archiving project underway. They won't be lost forever.

Any details? I would certainly prefer to access these discussions pretty much the way I can at this point.

Well, the Web Archive has always maintained a decent mirror of phpBB discussions.

If anyone has already downloaded all the phpBB 2.0 mods and placed their associated discussions into PDF files, I would gladly pay a reasonable price for these on CD, or an FTP location I can download from. PM me if you want to make a deal.

Excellent! That will save me a lot of time I was going to have to spend. Is there a donation link I can send to?

Also, did you have plans to make available the mod's associated discussions, as they often contain very useful tips/tricks to go along with implementation of the mod?
