Prime32 already has the table2 tag working along with cellspan and such.

Not sure if the dicebot's in, lets test it.

Nope, doesn't work yet.

Another request, can I get a subboard once the download limit is increased? I have all the Errata, FAQs, and Rules Of The Game unzipped and appropriately named (with dates) I can post to ensure people can find them. I should have most, if not all, of the Web Enhancements and Mind's Eye on a back up CD too. And if people have used a Web-Page-to-PDF to snag the pages that cannot be downloaded, I only have a few like the Archpsion and Swiftblade, I can handle submissions in there and archive those as well.

Strat, if you need help with backend stuff my offer is still open in pretty much any capacity.

That kind of thing is a Prime question, he's easier to reach via the IRC.

So where do we put down transfer requests? I'm busy with my own stuff, but there's a fair amount of other people's work that I need transferred to make sure my stuff is complete... lol.

Since this is kind of the "metaboard" area I propose the following structure based off the old boards layout. Now is the time (there are 0 posts in the newly made boards).

Quote
Metaboard (this boards called "General Discussion" can be renamed)
Other Gaming (Board games, conventions, etc)
Nongaming Fun
B**** like you have to

Gaming Advice
Campaign Journals
Fluff to Crunch (Let's Stat Up...)
Polling Place

Q&A
D&D 3.x
   CO
   Handbooks
   TO
General D&D
   5e
   4e
Mechanics Comparisons

Homebrew (People's child boards & Unofficial Errata)
Play By Post
   Current Games
   Retired Games

I put more thought into the above than I should have; even the spacing and order. I don't think we need a Noob EULA (indeed that might have contributed to the almost full year where we couldn't register new members).

The main archiving effort is here on GitP, or if you don't have a GitP account, I've got a thread on these boards.

Also, if you don't mind including the whole URL to those if you have them? Preferably a wayback link if you have them.

It's just a hair different than MMX's layout, namely inspiration strikes is a redundant subforum and then mechanical writing & your game here kind of already falls into homebrew and such but it still has it's own area under game creation. Unofficial Errata & Podcasts were dropped and I think someone already called for 4th being renamed too. Meetups never really seemed to happen to much (more of a pm thing imo anyway) but I figured we needed an actual video game subforum since we had one thread for discussions and some times multiple things might get talked about at once.

How bout a regular forum mod to deal with the sudden bots we somehow have now making junkmail threads? Like, wow, that is weirdly fast considering google still sends minmax searches to the dead forum.

I spent a lot of time on the Iron Siege stuff. If someone knows how to port and, perhaps, send both mine and TravelLog's subforums somehow, I would be eternally grateful. I'm working with Google cache atm, but it's not quite optimal for this.

Any help you guys need, just ask.

Only a small mind of the LOWEST ENERGY would subscribe to a linear notion of time. SAD!

I was gone for... reasons, and just when I try to return, this happens.  I was wondering why McAfee was blocking the sites, I was getting redirected to some apparently serious malware.

I'm a bit lost on everything and was fortunate to notice a thread on GitP.  Can anyone catch me up?

Apparently the BG's decided to walk out on the forums completely. There's been an issue with Blue Host and the site's taken down. Stratovarius and Prime first thought it might be non-payment, so they tried paying the host with the expectation that the site would come back up. Only, apparently, non-payment was only one of the issues, and there's some unknown technical reason as to why the forums are still down. One possible explanation is too many files.

The BG's are currently unresponsive, and have been since May at least, as such, there's currently no better way of salvaging the situation other than crawling through Google's and Bing's caches and the Wayback Machine to try and bring everything worth saving over to this new board.

Someone already made an HTML dump of the WayBackMachine archive of the forums and put it on GitHub (IIRC), and the current problem is how to preserve formatting when transferring content over. As it stands it's hard manual labor.

So, right now, there's very little anyone can do. If anyone knows people that were regulars in the board and might still be clueless as to the situation, now it'd be a good time to reach out and explain to them and bring them onboard the preservation efforts.

That's more or less the gist of it, if i missed something or said something wrong please feel free to add or correct.

EDIT: Seems like the Rule of Cool forums also have many crossposts from the Min/Max boards as well, so might be a good place to also look for useful stuff to port over.

Because I have twenty questions;)

Use this one instead ---> http://minmaxforum.com/index.php?topic=46.0

MEGA weird EDIT = don't use this one.  Use the one above.

Someone already made an HTML dump of the WayBackMachine archive of the forums and put it on GitHub (IIRC), and the current problem is how to preserve formatting when transferring content over. As it stands it's hard manual labor.

Is this it, or an older one ??

I'm back!

Any chance I could get a homebrew subforum like before for my larger compilations? It seems like you're trying to keep things more condensed than the sprawling subforums we had before; I can make do easily with just one subforum and have things sorted within. I'm writing a take home final for my masters course right now, but hopefully I should have the chance to start posting my old homebrew in a few days when it's done, so no rush.

What's the status of the tablesort tag? It seems to function as a table2, like before, but the sorting function doesn't seem to work any more (see thread). Not an urgent request.

Oh thank god, I was starting to worry that I would have to port over your stuff when I finish with my own....

Not to worry. I have all of my complete homebrew (and a lot of the only partially complete stuff) backed up locally on my home computer. When I get the chance, I'll start reposting it here. I just did the three that Sirpercival asked for. If there's anything in particular you want fast, let me know so I can prioritize it. Just don't bother asking for Power of Cybernetics. Reposting that is a project in and of itself.

So where do we put down transfer requests? I'm busy with my own stuff, but there's a fair amount of other people's work that I need transferred to make sure my stuff is complete... lol.
