I have emailed Ladyyates, alerting her to the PM problem to see if anything can be done, and i'm sure she is intending to make a redirect when she has time (she is a busy lady remember). I'll let you know when she replies
UPDATE: Lady says she had no idea the PMs were included in the export! she has removed the file from her public dropbox, so now it is solely in the hands of the peeps who downloaded it (we're trusting you guys). she said she wasn't given any options on what content was exported or how, and she doesn't have the coding knowledge to do anything else. so if you want to find a way to remove private content and share the rest, please go ahead, but otherwise we're stuck.
I also asked her to put up a link to here once the main site is closed, to pick up any stragglers.
Ally has that. "Highest Non-Admin Poster. Feel the shame, feel it." Although she's also Blackbeard? I've got no arguments to spare about a girl with a beard. I was apparently a wench when I first joined this forum despite being male, so whatever.
Also I'm pleased to confuse you Clemon. It's easier to recall when you note the use of the word "Lore". It's basically "X of Lore" crammed together with apostrophes stuck in between the words.
It is was great sadness that we bear witness to a great forum. Five years ago, ( feels longer) no one would have suspect that the TG forums would become such a fun place to hang and have art trades, discuss topics related to art and entertainment...and develop friggin huge threads. Anyhow, it had a good life, but the end was to come, and it passed peacefully after being onslaught-ed by spambots.
Ok enough sadness. Unless anyone wants to add to the obituary, let us party on.
