    If there are any of your old forum posts you wish to save, you have up until April 21 to do so, then we must trim the massive size of these ever-exploding forums before the next Oscars weekend because our massive size will continue to cause crashes and connection issues. We’re trying to address this issue in other ways behind the scenes, too, but I’m afraid old forums stuff must go.

    There are more than 580 pages of threads

    I guess the last 300 pages can go and no one will miss them 😂😂

    There are definitely several threads in the daytime TV section I would want to save – the ones with the history of the Goldies awards in particular – but I have no idea how to go about it??? Is there an archive option???

    I don’t know if it’s possible, but a search engine for threads would be so useful.

    I don’t know if I need to save them. If there’s a theme I wanna revisit I can always make a fresh thread.

    Enter the web.archive.org and then use the function “Save Page Now”

    It's about the chaotic editing in Moulin Rouge!

    How do you save old posts? Can someone explain that please?

    Use web.archive.org a.k.a the Wayback machine. You can also use the Wayback Machine extension in your browser, then it’s just one click to save a page.

    Here’s an example of using manual method, let’s say you want to save the current page one of the “2022 Grammy Award Nomination Predictions (Part 5)” thread:
    https://www.goldderby.com/forum/music/2022-grammy-award-nomination-predictions-part-5/

    1. Go the archive.org site: https://web.archive.org/save
    2. Enter the URL of the page you want to save, in this case:
    https://www.goldderby.com/forum/music/2022-grammy-award-nomination-predictions-part-5/
    3. Select save and the page will start saving
    4. When saved you should be able to find it again here – https://web.archive.org/web/*/https://www.goldderby.com/forum/music/2022-grammy-award-nomination-predictions-part-5/ – in fact you should probably do this first, before you waste time saving something that has already been saved.

    Or use the browser extension.

    Edit: This has worked on just about every page I’ve tried to save in the past, but perhaps there is something Gold Derby are doing that makes it difficult to save pages, because the page appears to save, but when I check later, the saved page was unreadable for me.

    Oh no. I like those threads that collect stats and stuff. But most of the others, yeah they can go.

    I just love movies. And awards.

    What is the cutoff date? What is the cutoff page? These deletions will decrease post counts, correct?

    If the archiving methods don’t work, there’s always the old-fashioned method of copying and pasting content into Word files.

    Tom, can you PLEASE clarify the date for “old forums?” You’re being very vague about that, and it has all of us worried.

    All I know is that these forums carry so much weight that really slow down our servers or even shut them down at peak traffic times. That will mean hell for our Oscar posters, so we need to do some pruning. The cut-off is some time during April 21. Then all posts older than a year will have to be offed. We plan to keep a storage backup, of course, but it’s doubtful that we can hook it back up to the forums after Oscars. Moving forward, I’m working hard to get us a new servers set-up so we should never have this probably again.
