Arena to reopen at Athas.org

Postby Havard » Fri Sep 18, 2015 1:07 pm

At the Dark Sun facebook group it was just announced that Athas.org will reopen its old forum the Arena and that discussions from the Wotc forums will be moved there. Not sure if that means that forum threads will be physically moved from the WotC forum to the Arena or not?

Anyone know more about this?

I was very sad to see Arena get deleted. It's great to see it come back.

Are they going to restore all the topics that were there from before, or is this a fresh install with no previous content?

Have they got a programmer who has worked out how to program a bot to crawl the Dark Sun forum at WotC and make duplicate posts in the restored Arena forum? Or are they asking for volunteers to copy and paste things?

(If it is the latter, I am already putting out an open call for Dark Sun fans to save content by copying it to the Dark Sun forum at The Piazza: Please archive content from the Dark Sun forum at WotC. :) )

We've got the great migration started from the Wizards Forums to the Area at Athas.org, but we can still use your help! http://community.wizards.com/forums/103361

1) We need general threads of interest moved over to the WotC Recovery Forum: http://arena.athas.org/c/recovery
2) We need the links in Pennarins Dark Sun Forum archive post updated and the associated threads moved to the recovery forum.Instructions are in the post.

Signed and posted, same nick, same image.
As said elsewhere, I'm also trying to save offline the Wizards forum. I'll let you know how that goes.

Is this a restored version of the old Arena, or have our previous posts and accounts been lost?
