I'm glad I started migrating my better stuff off there. I didn't manage to get everything, which is a shame, but I think I rescued a fair amount of it. I think it's interesting they shut down completely with no warning. I could see it stirring in the weeds but didn't know they'd do it this fast. I wish we could have been given some warning so we could get the rest of our content off the site. What do you think? [edit: if you want to try to get some of your content back, try your user name plus some of the words or subjects from your article. Click the tiny arrow to the right of the URL in the Google results, click "cached" and you can copypasta it into Notepad or some such. Hope this helps.)

I took down my fiction and poetry, but I might have missed some here and there. I found it too onerous a task to take down 1863 posts.

Oh, definitely. I had a few saved already and honestly, most I wouldn't go back for.

A valuable tip! I may try it, though I think I captured most of what I really wanted.

Reminds me of the Oscar Wilde meme (attached) a friend of mine shared, and my response to it, " 'what makes things precious' is never taken from you, but 'things that you use it on' are almost "precious BECAUSE you can lose them"' I think 'how "spending so much time on an article" makes it seem like it's "valuable," but the "value" is simply "that you wrote it."'

Well I was going to say that you can find some more of it, but then I saw your edit and someone else must have clued you in already. I don't know how long we have to get what we want, but at least I now have a bit more than yesterday.

Thanks for the useful tip. I saved all my articles as I wrote them but wanted to save copies of some of the comments I received so I may still go and look for some of them now.
