The Wipe to End All Wipes

Post by bastecklein » Sat Jul 15, 2017 8:53 pm

I have been working on some back-end server stuff lately that is going to allow me to kill a whole bunch of birds with one stone. There is a new unified Ape Apps Account system on the way that is going to replace the accounts here on RPF, on my other Ape Apps forum, and on all of my apps and games. I am also going to be replacing phpBB with a brand new custom forum system, complete with its own cross-platform app. Changes will require a wipe, but should pretty well be the end of total-wipes. It will certainly be the last wipe where all accounts are lost. Will happen towards the end of next month (August). Find more info here:

Changes should pretty much kill all spam bots too.

Hey, so

Is there a way to backup entire threads without having to save every page individually?

Not that I know of. But I might keep this database up permanently in a read-only format at like old.rp-forums.net as an archive or something, so that nothing will be lost.

I was about to ask but I'm glad someone else did and a possible solution.
