As to the lost posts from the weekend, I normally sign up for email notification for all posts, so I could repost some of other people's posts that way, if nobody minds.  Ironically it won't have any of my posts, and the formatting and quotes will be a little wonky, but the content will be there.  Would that be helpful?

SFG

To me, this sounds better than losing those posts (which I presume the authors meant to be published/permanent)

But since it involves the work of others, I'd like some input.

PM me if you'd specifically like to exclude one or all of your posts from being reposted this way, and I'll make sure they aren't, or are deleted.

I don't mind my posts being reposted if they exist somewhere else.

Orph, should I PM you with what I have, and let you do the rest?  I will work on sorting them by thread.

PM will be fine.

Does anyone similarly have SFG's posts via email notification? She obviously didn't get notifications on her own posts.

Only posts I had were from yadda and LotS. I've already given yadda his and let LotS know that I have his, but I suspect neither wants to bother with re-posting.
I never considered that notifications sent copies. I should use that from now on, just in case. :lol:

I think it's a brilliant idea and I'd be happy to have anything that was lost reposted.  Unfortunately, I've never used notifications myself, so I don'[t have copies of SFG's posts.

I have sorted the emails by thread, and will send them to Orpheus soon.  Fair warning on the limitations:

- Time-stamp may be wrong, as the email is sometimes delayed by several minutes up to several hours.  A few posts may be in the wrong order for this reason.

- No formatting or pictures, just text.  Links should still be there.

- Quotes are screwy.  Sometimes quoted text does not appear, or causes other text to not appear.  Multiple quotes almost always disappear.

The big one:

- There are no posts for threads I did not "subscribe" to. I never subscribed to the Babylon 5 thread, for example.  

- Also, when a new thread is created, I get a notice of the first post.  But if I don't get here right away to subscribe, I miss any following posts until I do.  While the board was blinking in and out on Sunday and Monday, I somehow missed subscribing to the thread for Star Trek Discovery episode 3.  I do regret that.

Chunk sent to Orpheus, more to come soon

- One more limitation: it only captures each post as originally written, no subsequent edits or additions will appear.
