WyrmrestAccord.net 1.0 Archive

Finally, after a few months of slowly plugging away at the various issues encountered, the WyrmrestAccord.net 1.0 Archive is up. Please read over that front page if you have any questions about where something went or if it exists anymore. If you need access to the WrA Afterhours Archive, please contact myself or one of the other moderators by private message.

This archive may not stay online permanently -- please download what you need from it as soon as possible (though the archive itself will remain generated, making recovering posts in the future significantly easier if someone misses the boat). Many thanks to Araquiel, she provided the shared hosting space I needed to cobble together an old MySQL-based instance of Drupal 6 on, from which this static archive was generated.

Google should index it at some point (since I have pointed their crawler at it in a couple of ways).

Finding a specific user's blog should be as easy as: http://archive.wyrmrestaccord.net/blogs/user-name-here.1.html (the .1.html part is a quirk of the export process).

Most excellent.

You are a patron saint of  bad old writing.

It's funny. I took most of the old versions of my journal-entry pictures off Tinypic, and the ID for one of them has since been taken by a photo posted by someone else.

Consequently, on the archived version of a journal-entry story, it says "This sheet of parchment is still attached to Laciel's journal" and then shows a photograph of some girl I don't know.

Heh. I'm way too easily entertained.

Much appreciated, Itarater.

Ooooh. So many old posts! So excited! Now that I have my archive set up, I can finally dig back into character stories without feeling like I am missing something. Huzzah!

This.  I just want to be like "how on earth did anyone ever like Nicene and how did I ever enjoy playing or writing for her".  The only good stuff is, unsurprisingly, her Afterhours content. -_-

I know the feeling ._. I want to strangle the Senkha of two years ago. That said, it's kind of cool to see the way she's changed and evolved.

Slightly related, old blogs are making me miss pre-retcon Mairèad.

Thank you so much for this.

I lament that I wrote a character like Bantarion, got so attached to him, and then completely lost track of what to do with him. Reading back through his journals made me laugh, cry, and laugh some more. 

This is nostalgia central, man. I love it.

Yes I agree. Reading back through everything really brought back some memories and to see how much zee grew and developed and how far jaen went down her dark path. i cannot wait to start posting again and get my characters caught up.

I feel the same exact way about Vesiel. She was such an awesome character at the beginning, and then she turned into a big ol' pile of boring. ._.

Totally saved all the old Eyepokes blogs! I am so happy to see them again. I almost feel like I should redo the art a bit, though, it's so old!

So glad to see the archive again. All dese memories. :3

Hrm. I can actually read my old stuff and not cringe. So either I'm getting better, or my taste in literature has declined dramatically.

^ This, ahahaha. (I think my taste has declined, personally.)

But wow, thank you for giving us this and all the hard work involved, Irarater et all. <3 All the nostalgia ever.

And Meida journals were the cutest thing ever, oh my god.

And the Tents site is still available for users who want to archive past and present stuff upon request at a separate site.

Was nice to get some of the old writing I liked. But I realize now there is a ton of stuff I'm happy to let vanish into nothing.

Perhaps today -is- a good day to die.

Luckily, I had copies of my old posts, but not in a shareable format, so nice to get that done.  Thanks so much for all the hard work that went into restoring those posts.

Well, looks like I missed the boat on this one...

Finally got around to being able to sit down and go through and bugger all, not a sausage. Any chance I could just DL the whole thing and mine for my shtuff?

Nope, you didn't! The archive's been moved to archive.wyrmrestaccord.org with the moving of the site to that domain. Everything's still there, just a slightly different address!
