I'm hoping we can decamp to somewhere else/SA3.0, because this place brings me a lot of joy.

it'd be great to have a new place, maybe even something better if we're super lucky

but i can't think of any unambigiously good alternative, or at least didn't see anything suggested yet that didn't have issues attached

I mostly lurk on this thread for the recommendations but I also think it's a really nice community and I would be very sad to lose it. As for decamping, if the forums die bread and roses seems like the forum to go at the moment, in addition to any specific discord server. AFAIK it was set up recently as a more leftwing SA alternative without the decades of terrible baggage, and it seems like a nice place. It's good to keep the URL on hand in case the forums suddenly go down, at the very least.

Sebmojo asked me to post this:

A while ago, some goon wrote a thread scraper for SA.

I forked the code and fixed the error messages, then did it again when chrome started hating on http connections or something. It's now the single thing I have available on github, because it would be rude not to let the orginal author know that somebody still loves his dead gay code:

https://github.com/Fumblemouse/SA-Archiving-Tool

To use:

Hit the big green Clone button and download it as a zip file.

Extract the zip file somewhere on your local hard drive.

In Chrome, go Settings -> More Tools -> Extensions and flick the Developer Mode switch on the top right.

There should now be an option to Load Unpacked on the left. Ignoring the untold comedy potential for that phrase, click the option and find the folder you extracted the zip to - by default, SA-Archiving-Tool-master. Select that folder and click the Open button.

All going well you should now have a hard-to-see SA icon on the chrome extension bar. If you visit a SA thread with a thread ID, eg https://forums.somethingawful.com/s...hreadid=3903748 the icon should now be clickable with a single option...Archive.

Click that link, and your local PC will think for a while, depending on your local tubespeed, then display a single page with the entire thread on it. CTRL+S or Rightclick Save As and save it whereever you want. WebPage, Complete will save images also.

Because nothing in life is easy, the saved page's HTML CSS tags refers to something set up by the chrome extension, so it will look a bit crappy in another browser or if you remove the extension. This can be fixed by changing the CSS reference in the Saved As HTML file to the files in the /archive folder from the extracted zipfile - or you could copy the /archive css files into the HTML file's folder and just have the tags as direct links to files (no folder references)

Go crazy!

Yeah, I heard this was the case but didn't include it in the post because I wasn't 100% sure. But if you can spare $10 I'm sure they could use it to cover the sudden spike in users.
