I sent out approx 500 emails.  I wound up using my scaperaven gmail account because Arvixe is utterly pathetic in nearly every conceivable way. 

Anyway.

14 emails came back undeliverable so far, but hopefully the vast majority go through, or folks learn about the zombie site via other means.

Thank you for all of this, raven. You are the best.

And thank you Arvixe for putting the cart thread and Testy's Gates thread to sleep. It was truly the most compassionate thing.

Whoo!  It's great to see you made it!

Wander around the admin panel some.  Elkarte is very different from vbulletin.  If you've seen the admin side of phpbb some of it will look familiar.  I'm still in the mode of finding some feature, doing something to it, and then a day later needing to find the feature again and having no idea where I found it last time.  After a couple iterations it starts to stick.

I might look but won't touch anything. I just wasted a good 5 minutes trying to figure out where the fuck the like button is before giving up and googling it. Apparently you need 5 posts before you get the ability to like a post. I'll probably break something, and our beautiful zombie will lose an arm or something.

Thanks once again, raven. <3

The like threshold can be set to something else.  I don't think there's any reason to have it at 5.

ETA it's at 1 now.

Sorry, Testy. But at least ranting about it all over again will be kind of fun, right?

So the told TR is partially back up if you go to http://talkrational.org/index.php you can see the old forum structure and the most recent posts.  However trying to open a thread or enter any of the fora returns a SQL exception. 

Does that mean that someone is making progress, or did I just stumble on one of the few pages that still works?

eta:  You can even get to PMs so if anyone has anything important there, it's available without bugging Raven to pull it from the DB.

That page doesn't work for me. Though I can see some cached data in Tapatalk, so it could be something similar, I guess.

For me the home page opened but I couldn't open any threads.

Welcome to our newest member, Zardoz

Zardoz somehow registered on May 28th.  It looks like all the most recent posts were on the 23rd.

I can get to the memberlist and the arcade.

Raven, if I haven't told you how wonderful you are lately, let me take this opportunity to do so. You are wonderful.

Can we get a crosswalk for any of the tardsticks that decide to change their names for a laugh?
I have a hard enough time keeping track of who is who when I've been looking at their names for years!

Is it time to do a more complete email outreach?

I think it is.
