OK, thanks. So, May 1 is the date.
To be honest, i do not think this date will hold up. It would be a shame if the 2.0.x archives would be not available for at least 2 years, or being removed once Ascraeus is released.

Wouldn't it be a good idea to move the phpBB2 forums to a different location, after the styles forums are closed as well? Just to keep it as archive, but that it isn't accessible from the index anymore.

No.
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?
Yes.
Well, thank you, thank you, thank you! :D

With the archived topics possibly going away, is there a way to place all the posts of a topic on one printer-friendly page? For instance, there's a topic for a mod with 282 pages. I would like something close to a one-click approach for printing it all out (to a PDF).

Unfortunately, no, there doesn't appear to be a way to list all posts in a topic on one page.

It would be cool if phpbb.com could give us a SQL dump of the 2.0.x forums (Support, MODs, Styles, etc) - but we know thats not happening. Too many problems with user_ids, etc. :lol: :P

Yeah, no doubt that an SQL dump would be more trouble than it's worth. And thinking of the recent "SQL dump" which had been released, I don't suppose the phpBB Group are too keen on releasing anything more. :|
