I know Catflaporama no longer exists.

I was wondering whether there is anywhere that has got a copy of some of the famous old threads?

I believe that everything will be lost when we move to the new board. So I was thinking, wouldn't it have been nice if we could have preserved a few. Perhaps something like a top 10 old threads vote and migrate them across.

Can't find sossage's 8-darter anywhere, or the magnificent graphic of the bee by oooo which I was still laughing at weeks after seeing it. Here is one that stirs a few memories for SMC lads...

I would like to think we could somehow have an archive site - not sure how likely that is.
The new and old forums are on different servers for starters.

A read only archive site would be great. Depends how much work it would take to configure and then keep running longer term.

Google could be used to search it. So not many extra tools would be needed. Just a locked version with a url that you can search via Google.

I asked on the test site about being able to upload .doc documents.

My idea is to download favourite threads into word documents. Then upload the word document on the new site.

This would allow people to move a copy of their favourites across themselves.

The SMC link above in the thread generates a file about 1/2 MB in size. So not that big.

Wouldn't even waste your time doing that.

Open a Chrome browser - install the add on Full Screen Page Capture (link included below). Click the button and it generates a PNG file of the whole page. The only problem would be that none of the links would be clickable but you could read any page you wanted without having to spend an ages working on formating it etc.
