archiving private SIGs?
« on: July 02, 2011, 02:16:16 pm »
Is there a way to archive the private Lady of the Stars SIG of the old board so only former participiants can read it? Maybe with a password?

Or can we still log into the old board with our old accounts just without posting?

Sorry if this has already been thought of or explained somewhere and I've missed it, I'm a bit confused about software stuff. :confused:

Nevertheless thanks for putting in all the work, I hope I'm not complicating things with my question. :)

We can still log into our old accounts at the old board.  We just are unable to post.

If you have an account on the old board, you will still be able to log on. You will still be able to read your private messages, access any private areas you are a member of, etc. You just will not be able to post.  The board will likely be completely closed for a few days while I reset all the permissions and such, but it will reopen ASAP as a read only board.

Unfortunately, there is no way to automatically archive posts on the old board. You'd just have to save things manually with your browser -- which isn't fun at all. It is much easier here on the new board as the "Show Printable Version" (under Thread Tools) makes it each to copy the text of thread messages into a text file on your system.

That's good! Then there's no need to archive it. :)

That does sound like a handy feature! :)
