PostSubject: Erased blogs...SAVED!   Tue Jun 07, 2011 9:44 pm

I read my Slenderblogs on Google Reader, since my wordpress account got all wonky and I didn't want to continue following blogs with an inactive blogger account. While using it, I noticed something:

If something updated, if whoever updated it screwed up and deleted the post, it didn't matter. It stayed in the feed. I noticed it happening with blogs that were currently updating, so I wondered if it would work with blogs that had their entries erased before I started following them.

It did.

What this means is that a ton of blogs that were thought lost to the ages are now completely accessible again. The early White Elephants posts, one of the most influential blogs of all time, are all still on Google Reader. Para-Not-So-Normal, a blog that I personally wasn't a huge fan of but was a favorite with some creators, is still on Google reader. And CUT!, the first real humorous blog, which was deleted before most people even had a chance to read it, is still on Google Reader. All these blogs that were lost are again accessible.

I'm wondering what blogs you all would want recovered, and where exactly you'd like me to post these lost entries. There's one problem, though: if a blog has been deleted entirely, I can't salvage it. That means that I can't recover A Lack of Lexicon or No Escape From Reality (for humor value, of course). It's unfortunate, but it's a problem I can't solve.

Could you get all of early White Elephants? I read the cached version, but there were many posts that were missing.

And darn, I really wanted to read A Lack of Lexicon.

Shocked ....
Very Happy
I second WE, and I guess Testing since I missed that before it got taken down (and have all the original Sages too, I guess). And CUT! because it always sounded very interesting.

I also would still like to read A Lack of Lexicon but eh.... I'll take what I can get. This is awesome, I shan't complain.

I thank thee, good sir. santa

That is all *returns to the shadows*

That's awesome! It'd be worth getting as many as possible PrintScreened, just in case.

It kinda sucks that I didn't back up ALoL's posts before deletion... eh. I wonder if Blogger could restore it somehow...

Blogger can restore deleted blogs up to 90 days after deletion.

It's been over ninety days since the deletion, however.

You could always build a time machine, go back to before ninety days were up, and then undelete it.

I feel like there would be more pressing matters to attend to were one to build a working time machine. Razz

But you'd have to make sure it went both ways, otherwise you'd get stuck in the past. Remember that!

Bah! I could A* all my exams while I'm at it!

I could also troll the Mythos by predicting plot twists before they happen. "LOL REVENANTS AREN'T REEL"

First White Elephants post after the blog gets taken over: "Oh, hello Redlight."

"What? Who the fuck is Redlight?"

"Oh, right, never mind. By the way, you guys maybe wanna start getting screenshots. Just saying."

I guess if you've got PNSN, send it to me? I like learning from my past mistakes.

How are you doing these? I'd recommend PrintScreens; any pictures won't be copied (if you can copy/paste). Furthermore, copy/pasting the text means that you'll need to format it all yourself, which'd suck.

I'm going to be setting up a place to keep the cached blogs on the Slenderbloggins.net site this weekend. Then it will be as simple as copying and pasting, either the RTF or the HTML.

At LAST. I've been trying to read the Core Theory blogs from more or less the beginning, and you can probably imagine how hard that is without White Elephants and Testing. You are a saint. A SAINT.

I'm definitely throwing my hat in with the peeps who want to see CUT! brought back to life. Slightly heartbroken about A Lack Of Lexicon as well, this is going to turn out to be one of those things that will never be accessible and which I have ridiculously grandiose daydreams about

As someone who came into the mythos late in the game, i'm glad to hear that these blogs aren't lost forever. I feel like i'm missing so much not having read them. So, thanks. :}
