2016 holiday threads vanished

It looks like all the legacy threads that were started in 2016 in the holiday forums have completely vanished. I just get the generic "Insufficient Holiday Cheer" page and redirect to the holiday forum.

eg (from browser history)

I assume this is intentional, but a bunch of them we had just picked right up where we left off, but with current events, so... not entirely certain? The forum index is still listing that there should be 10 pages of threads, but they stop at around page 5, so again, unclear.

    This was by design. Usually we sweep all the old threads under the rug as early as possible during the holiday hangout transition. It came a little later this time.

    Are they going to be accessible on read-only before the holiday is up? There's one or two posts I'd like to copy/avoid re-typing on the new threads.

    Unknown. are 2013-2015 read-only for you? if so, probably! If not... no idea!

  • DonnictonDonnicton Registered User regular
    Yes, but I'm just going to type them again.

    2013-2015 are visible, but there's no 2016.

    It was pretty standard, as years go. Probably no great loss.

    Crap. There were a few videos I'd meant to go back and watch in the youtube thread and a draft I was sitting on in the steam thread.

    2016 is kind of the year I wish I could forget anyways
