    Briannakin’s Away Thread
    Mav’s Away Thread

    The Move and the Truncation Issue
    In 2012, the JCF moved hosts from IGN to XenForo. As a result of unforeseen technical difficulties, all posts dated 22 March 2012 and earlier were truncated down to 10,000 characters. Furthermore, all links in threads posted before the move (e.g. in story indexes) direct you to the IGN page, which no longer exists. The mods are still working on restoring old posts (see this thread in Comms). In the meantime, these links will be helpful:
    Looking for threads but you only have the IGN URL? – an explanation on how to convert IGN links to XenForo manually
    Firefox Add-On – Redirecting IGN links to XenForo – a smart little add-on that will solve the problem for Firefox users
    The Wayback Machine – you can conduct a search here with IGN links, in the hope of finding a complete version of truncated threads
