Missing threads

I notice man old threads appear to have disappeared from the site and can't be found in the search. Why is this.

who cares

Well done. I will disengage self-destruct initiative.

Jay had to archive several of the threads because they were taking up too much server space; thus, they are no longer accessible.

Princess Leia: I happen to like nice men.
Han Solo: I'm a nice man.

Yeah, any threads that were started before, I believe, November 30, 2003, wound up being archived due to space on database. Sucks, but it sure makes the site a lot cleaner.

Loads a lot faster, too.

Maybe it does load faster but I miss some of the old threads.

True, but that's not stopping us from starting up new versions of them, right?

I supposed that is true. But we can't go back and read old posts.

Yeah, but how many people really went back and read the old posts? Not I. I'm too lazy. I just ask people to restate something instead.

yeah but what if you ask someone to restate somthings and they don't remember what they said. As for emailing Jay, you can do that but it was easier and faster to just go back and read the old post. As for why you might want to look over old posts, remember when I asked about Nilesbagin? If I had asked about her today, you would not able to show me her posts without alot time and effort, from you and Emperor Jay.

Very true, but NileQT is best left in the past; we've learned from her and it's time to move on.

Yes but new people won't be able to learn from her because they can't get to her posts.

NileQT? Who was that, if you don't mind me asking? Why is she better left in the past?

I don't really want to answer that for reasons better left in the past.

"You" being me, or as in "you all"?

I remember that she seemed to hate me the most just before she left because she thought I was ghosting her every post and countering everything she said. It was actually a case of me being bored and just posting wherever a new post went up and she happened to be the only other person there posting at the time.
