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.

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