Copy the dead-link URL and paste them here: https://archive.org/web/. That should work for aleast some of them.

Thank you so very much, Hannah and/or whoever else is responsible for bringing it back.

Big Hugs! :D

I swear I choked up and almost cried when I saw the notice.

It is a welcome return, indeed. Thank you very much.

But despite the return of the valuable resource, all the global links to the forums will still be broken because they were located on a subdomain at http://forums.drcsite.org. The forums are currently in a folder at http://drcsite.org/forums, presenting a problem with all existing links to them. This is easily fixed in the hosting account by pointing the subdomain to the folder unless the DNS issue affecting Cyan's other sites somehow makes that problematic.

It's much better to have the DRC site up than not, but even better if the forums were on the subdomain as before.

Also, the /spoiler tag needs to be implemented. ;)

Thanks a bunch! This is a large help to me since as most of you know I talk about the games history often for my Heritage Night events.

The forums have been moved to forums.drcsite.org. :)

It seems that (for me at least) whenever I visit a page, a very long "sid" (session ID?) value is appended to the PHP query. Wouldn't that throw off the Wayback Machine and such, breaking most of the links on archived versions of the page? Besides, it also works without the appended sid (I tried) and cleaner URLs are always better :)

phpBB will set a cookie if it can, otherwise it will use session IDs. If you're seeing the session ID, that means the host's or your cookie settings need adjustment.

I see the session IDs too, so probably the board's cookie setting needs adjustment. The Cookie settings/Cookie domain on the phpBB ACP may not have been changed from its default after the subdomain was fixed. It needs to be changed to ".forums.drcsite.org".

Once fixed, probably good to "delete all board cookies" at the bottom of the page.

This is fantastic news!

May we also expect that the link to the DRC forums, from the list of MOUL forums, will be fixed? The link currently points to "http://mystonline.com/forums/viewforum.php?f=93" but then clicking there says that the user is unauthorized to see that forum.

It took me a minute to figure out "What list? Where?" Marten means the DRC forum link in this forum section:
viewforum.php?f=71

Yes it does, Korov. I've had this problem quite a bit with going through the archived DLF site.

The link points to "drcsite.org" for me. Could you please attach a screenshot of what you're seeing?
