    Some time ago, in order to lighten the load on the servers (it was some popular release or other), older threads got scrapped. "Moved for safe keeping." Gutted like a fish. Now they are empty. Only thing that remains of them is the thread title and the number of replies it had, and that's it. You can still reply in them though, and then they get locked for necrobumping.

    They were supposed to return once the noob flood had subsided, but it never happened. There's a forum archive (not available at the moment), but it doesn't overlap with the "active" base, so there's a whole bunch of threads hanging in limbo, neither here nor there, inaccessible.

    My question is, are they going to be restored, either in the "active" forum or in the archive, or are they gone for good?

    I would like to see them return and also I'd like the archive to come back. Would be a shame to see some of those classic Testing Area threads go especially now that the EoF is at its all time low.
