I had tried twice to archive my favorite subs & threads with scrapers but there simply was too much content for the tools I was using at the time to process in a reasonable time & space. It's a bit ironic because now there are plenty of tools to do that job quickly and even in real-time thanks to twitter existing, but ST is dust now.
Seems like June 2013 is the last working snapshot the waybackmachine recorded without error, so a lot of the forum classics are saved. But offtopia and a few other select corners are lost to the world.
I actually had the thread bookmarked and I think I saved one or two of the most hilarious posts - yeah, I'm a bit sad, the forum and you guys made for some really fun times! I just checked, the offtopia forum I set up a few years ago is also gone... Ah well, time is ever changing, huh?
Yeah, ST was pretty dead towards the end. There were only a handful of us still posting there. I'll miss the place.
Hey Stuy, yeah, sorry bout that! Hadn't though about the fact that things would get even quiter once I stopped updating the OP thread...but well, I guess that wouldn't have changed anything.
So, apart from the odd visit to Jcafe, are you still ghosting on Anime/Manga forums on the net? I can be found on NF (yeah yeah, the irony :D) and Arlong Park (where I just contacted krazykwasi, he just asked me if I knew anything about other old ST members).
Oh and Ikkyusan and Revilenigma, you guys hear anything from morten? Or is he gone for good?
