    Exclamation Index of Minmax/ Brilliant Gameologists Threads

    Update (June 30): The Sorcerers of the West Ocean have worked their magicks to return the old Minmax content to life!

    The new MinMax Forums now have all the old content from the old boards. HOWEVER! We do not have any guarantees of the Brilliant Gameologists content. If you have anything from BG that never got ported to Minmax, we still need to save it. There's also no harm in having additional mirrors of any content, too.

    Spoiler: instructions
    Alright folks, it's that time again. Minmax and Brilliant Gameologists are offline, possibly indefinitely. Let's all chip in and mirror or archive as much as we can.

    There's two ways to help here.

    1. Post the URLs of pages that are worth saving.
    Check your browser history, your bookmarks, your auto-complete data. Post the URL in this thread.

    2. Backup pages.
    Use your own URLs or those that others have shared to create archives of the content.

    This could be via the Wayback Machine, Google Cache, or other search engines. Cached pages may not remain forever; please prioritise making wayback copies.

    3. Mirror pages.
    Copy and paste the thread. Post it on the new MinMax Forums, GitP or Google Docs (enable sharing). If all we have is a [cache] version, this step is imperative.

    An HTML-to-BBCode converter can make preserving formatting easier. If you create a copy, please do add the name of the original author and original date at the top of the post, as well as a link back to this thread.
