    How are you bringing PBB threads over here?

    Simple copy/paste or what?
    RIP PBB

    Copy/paste for me, but I haven't found a way to make it "simple".

    I don't have mad haxxor skills to script it - I used dumb animal labor (my spare time last weekend).

    Would've been 3x quicker before VS's latest syrupgrade. Like 20/20 hindsight helps any

          I'm looking at options to save the threads or print them to PDF. Recent changes mean that max is 20 posts per page which is extra annoying. Copying and pasting into a word doc kind of sucks because you end up with 100 random little images per post. Copy paste as text kind of also sucks. There are options to download/save webpages... Haven't done anything yet.

              I use a computer, so copy and paste is much easier. In general though, i'm trying to reimagine much of my threads and make them flow better. good chance to get the information re-organized.

              as for bringing over replys, if they are strictly adding to tech i'm not bothering with them. ideally if they have been responded to.

              for pictures, just making a new folder and downloading the pictures. resorting them so that they are 5 per post and trying to clean them up, then re-adding them in. at that point, just let them grow over here.


              the ring and pinion Toyota thread is sort of an example, but the brake bible thread in the Toyota FAQ is an actual completed version. Eventually i'll get off my ass and get the rest of my thoughts together for the ring and pinion thread, but I've information and pictures from about 4 different threads that i want to weave together into one. It's a good way to condense down tech. It would help if there were no picture hosting limits here, but that is my only gripe. otherwise it goes pretty smooth.

              concerning ripping pictures from pirate, if you don't click on the actual picture to make it full size before downloading it, you get a rather shit image.

                  the only posts i'm taking from other people and reposting are done either with explicit permission or ones that have been requoted by me as implicit permission. Check out the "3rd gen cage and slider" thread in the taco section for an example of a build thread i brought over for somebody else. compare it to the same thread as posted on pirate and the differences will be apparent.

                      On weaponsguild they converted some old thread to PDF. Pros were that images were not subject to failure down the road from a photobucket type issue, downside is you can't enlarge the pics beyond what they were converted at.

                      Someone has to have written a script to capture forum post and download the associated images

                          Do you have supple round bosoms - like the kind I see in Hollywood movies... or do you have those perky pointy ones with hard dark nipples like a Euro Model. Don't get me wrong, I don't have a preference, I do however dislike huge ugly areolas - as it happens. You know the kind, they have a bunch of skin-tag looking shit growing out of the edges etc.
                          I believe they are still working on the Tech articles but I will double-check on this. Who’s Online? When you are reading a thread, you will see a green...

                            I only rebuilt 1 thread that had 210 posts and didn't make a post-for-post rebuild. Threw a bunch into each new post, so like 90 posts with the contents of the original 210. For earlier parts of my thread, I was able to copy blocks out of PDFs I'd printed before the syrupgrade, but it was still a clusterfook.

                            The photos were a 1 by 1 pain in the 'taint, but at the end I realized I could copy/paste an entire syrupgraded post, select a photo placeholder, hit "Enter" and have the IBB photo uploady widget pop up. Then paste the source location, check the "retrieve and reference locally" box & click OK.

                            No lie: it's a "fawk that" PITA. Sorry, but I don't know how to make the process slick.
                            For folks with massive amounts of info. to transfer, my manual hackery ain't the solution.

                            There has to be a 'puter wizard here who knows how to do it "not the hard way"

                              Do you know some slick way to mass transfer content? If so, can you share it here?
