Please archive content from the Dragonlance forum at WotC!

Post by Big Mac » Tue Sep 22, 2015 1:07 am

In case you have not seen it, Wizards of the Coast have announced they will be closing down their forums on the 29th of October, and this means that a ton of Dragonlance content there is about to be deleted! :o

Here is a post I made at the Dragonlance forum at WotC asking people to archive their Dragonlance content here: Please archive your content at the Dragonlance forum at The Piazza:

Everything in the Dragonlance forum will be deleted on that date. Wizards of the Coast are asking for you to move your content.

There is a ton of awesome stuff here. It would be a shame to loose it all.

The Piazza is offering an open invitation to all Dungeons & Dragons fans.

Please help The Piazza save the best Dragonlance forum content by crossposting it to the Dragonlance forum at The Piazza.
How to archive WotC forum content at The Piazza:
  1. Register for an account at The Piazza (if you do not already have an account here),
  2. Use one browser tab/window to navigate to the Dragonlance forum at WotC,
  3. Use a second browser tab/window to navigate to the Dragonlance forum at The Piazza,
  4. Copy the thread title from the forum at WotC,
  5. Use the "New Topic" button at the forum at The Piazza and paste in the topic title,
  6. Copy the first post from the WotC forum:
    • If you have an account at WotC, you can use the quote button, copy the post and then paste it into your topic here
    • If you do not have an account at WotC, you can highlight the text of the post, copy it and then paste it into your topic here
  7. You need to repeat the above two steps for every reply in the topic*.
  8. Check the WotC forum posts for links and special formatting and add them back in here, if you can**.
* = If you copy each post separately, that will give the forum admins the ability to "give the post back" to the person who made it, if they want to get their post back If you copy multiple WotC posts into a single Piazza post, then the post will stay as your post.
** = If you have trouble with formatting, you can ask for help here.

Wizards of the Coast have just deleted their forums. Here is a copy of their announcement:

On behalf of The Piazza, thank you to everyone who archived content, both here and elsewhere, to save it from deletion. If anyone has private archives, that they have not uploaded to their own site, we would be very interested in talking to you about how to make those publicly accessible (to all D&D fans - not just people with accounts here).

We would also like to thank the various forum staff members at the WotC forums, who helped build the community that migrated over here back in 2008. The Piazza is still here, supporting all D&D worlds and systems (both old and new). But we would not have been here if it wasn't for the community building that once happened back at the WotC forums.

Please let your friends know that the community that split off from the WotC forums back in 2008, is still extending its open invitation for former WotC members to come and join the rest of us.
