Copying old threads from other boards?
« on: June 27, 2017, 09:39:15 PM »
Is there any way we can import or copy the old Red Markets threads from other places? Specifically, the RPPR Forums, where we had several very long threads with tons of good stuff in them. I know RPPR also runs the Simple Machines Forum software, so maybe it would be easy?

It's not hard to do it by hand.  But if it can be automated, that would off course be better.

On a side note.  There are also some interesting discussions on the Facebook page.

Also moving threads from Facebook over? There's a ton of stuff, especially earlier on that would be useful, NPC/Character concepts, enclave ideas, etc...

You can just link them for now?

On the topic of old threads, did a bunch vanish from LifeLines? I had several contracts I had posted that are no longer on the site. I didn't want to put them up again if it were just a glitch or something, but if the forum was pruned at some point I might repost them.
