    I was actually hoping that we could schedule those non-league matchups for next season. Then I clicked on the link and suddenly felt a lot less interested.

    But you are getting me tickets for the game, right Trieste? :p

    Did anybody back up the game thread before the move? If so, I could use a copy of the backup. I've got ideas on what I want to do in terms of a storyline, but I may need access to details in truncated posts to go that route. I asked in Comms if it would be possible for the admins to extract truncated posts from the database, and they said no. :(

    I don't think anyone did, but I know we were discussing it at one point.

    Unless Mac did.

    I didn't and I should have because I am having a similar situation in another game. I have most of my posts saved on my PC, but I lost some of my early posts when it died the summer before this past one.

    You've got it better off than I do, then. I don't keep my posts on my PC; once I confirm that the post has successfully saved to the boards, I delete it. Probably should save my posts, now that I think about it.

    It is really just a by product of how I post for RPGs. I usually type my responses up in notepad and then copy and paste those over into a post.

    I only keep posts if I need to save them to my hard drive during the writing process.

    I normally type mine up in the same Word document I store my character sheet in, then copy and paste into the boards. That allows me to easily save partial posts during the writing process, but I don't keep them there permanently, otherwise the file would get way too large to easily work with.

    Yeah I keep each post saved in its own .txt file organized by season. My team roster I keep in excel.

    The only place I have my team roster at now is the wiki. Even my library thread post simply links to the wiki for the roster.

    I keep my roster updated in the library thread. I don't think it was affected by the truncation issue.

    I sadly did not back it up. Hindsight, you know?

    I'll tag him: CPL_Macja, do you have a backup of the game thread pre-move?

    Sadly I do not... it was the only game that I didn't get to back up before the move

    Jc, out of curiosity what are you looking for? I can try to wrack my brain and see if I remember anything.

    Really minor details. Specifically, any post of mine since Marte started with HSN that mentions Podracing, and the names and other details of the two Jedi whom Marte and Tendra traveled to Ragoon VI with during the offseason immediately after he retired from coaching. The latter might be at the beginning of a post, or at least close enough to the beginning to have not been cut off, but I haven't checked yet because I don't need that information yet (but I will soon). However, I know the Podracing mentions were usually at the end of a post, but it will be longer before I need that (and I might decide against taking the story down that road anyway).

    In other words, I don't need anything right now; I'm just trying to look into the future a bit.

    I remember that post, and that you stole a name (at least a first name) of one of my characters. :p

    I did not steal anyone's character's name. :p All of my character names come off the Star Wars Galaxies Random Name Generator: http://swg.stratics.com/content/gameplay/characters/name.php The name in question must simply be a common first name in the SW galaxy.

    That's also why you don't see a wide variety of species from me; I limit myself to the eight options in the generator.
