The old forum is available under http://old.forum.mechlivinglegends.net.
It won't let you log in, it's merely for archiving purposes.
It'll be available until the old server shuts down (which is beyond my control). I'll request a backup of the db for a permanent archive, but no guarantees.
It appears the old server has finally shut down, and with it the forum archive. It won't be accessible anymore.
Not all is lost, as I have a (slightly outdated) backup of the database. But for now there's no way to access the archive.
except, maybe, for the records in the wayback machine
Is there any chance that archive will work again?
