As the soon-to-be Minister of Finance, I have started putting together a budget. One of the things on the budget was one of the same things on the budget for the 47th Cosa and the 48th Cosa: purchasing a boards.net account from proboards, so that we could then export an SQL dump of Witt as a backup. The service was made available two years ago, and it seemed to provide a cheap and easy way to save all of our data. A boards.net account was only $10 per month, and even though we'd need to be a subscriber for at least six months before we could download a backup, that seemed like a small price to pay to preserve so many years of history and 10,000 threads (including legal debate and court proceedings!).
Unfortunately, this hasn't been done, and now it looks like we missed our opportunity, since ProBoards ended this feature a few months ago.
Now, it's a violation of proboards Terms of Service to code a tool that will scrape all threads and posts from ProBoards and save them to an external database, so I'm certainly not saying that anyone should do that. But if you were able to do something like that, or know of another way we could automate a backup of our data, please let me know ASAP. This is important, and it's something we need to get done.
Miestrâ Schivâ, UrN: Talk about throwing a random factor into the mix!

Lüc da Schir: Everyone who sent me PMs and stuff during the last week, I'm sorry for completely tuning out. Life happened and I was too burned out to check Talossa. I hope to get back to everyone soonish.
