When the Sunset announcement came through saying the UGC was being taken offline in August, and that fate of official forums was unclear (but likely to follow) I started doing an archival backup of the message board, to preserve user Guides, FAQs, Bug reports, and other relevant information. Provided here is the archive current to 2016-05-17. I will try to update the archive when possible, to catch new posts between now and shutdown, but I can't guarantee that. The archive already covers over 60k individual HTML files massing in at about 5 GB of text. As a community we wrote a lot of text in one and a half years.
This Archive was create for academic and archival purposes, to preserve a wealth of knowledge and community effort that may otherwise be lost. forum.projectspark.com archive
