if theyve got links to the stuff they want to keep access to (which i guess they probably would? maybe not) you can just chuck that link into the wayback machine and it’ll work. idk about a search thing tho, dont think it works well with stuff like that

While I have complete sympathy with people who want the old forum to stay online for these types of reasons, as long as they have notice, they could easily download threads of particular interest or value to them.
