Dragon Tear.net Archive on Wayback Machine

Postby Ryuuna » Fri Nov 30, 2018 11:30 am

I'm merely sharing a way to access the old DT.net forums for anyone interested. It is far from perfect as it is not a 100% carbon copy but still, you can access some content for the daily dose of nostalgia. They archived most parts of the front page, but missed a lot on the forum as such. Most threads are a dead end but some work, it's a bit of a hit and miss.

Wayback Machine archives homepages by creating snapshots of homepages in certain intervals and then stores the data. They have been doing this for quite a long time. Basically, you select your year on the scale above and then click on a date with a blue circle around it below to access the snapshot at one archived point in time.

Maybe this is interesting for some :3

Very cool! I've done this with other old forums in the past and it can be fun to remember what things were like.
