Purged InsaneJournals? [Sep. 22nd, 2014|07:16 pm]
Dungeon Watch

Hi everyone! (Or whoever is still following this community.) Like ceresi, I recently felt moved to reread through the old Dungeons canon. I was having a great time going back through the archives on LJ and reliving the game, so imagine my disappointment when I got to the transition to InsaneJournal and found that several of the game journals had been deleted and purged!

So far I've noticed operculum, snuff_dog, princeofboredom, and markd_improvmnt have been deleted. The entries still show up on the community pages, but of course you can't click through to them. Using the Google wayback machine usually gets me the original post, along with the first few comments, but for those posts with long threads of comments, the rest of the comments are unreachable.

What I'm wondering is, is there any kind of technological wizardry that would allow a person to view those old threads? Or are they simply gone forever? It's just so depressing to think that all of that time and energy and creativity simply... vanished into thin air. I don't even know why those journals would have been deleted - surely the authors would have wanted to preserve that game history?

Any tips would be greatly appreciated, if indeed there are any solutions to this. I was just so much enjoying my reread that it was a very unpleasant shock to realize that such huge chunks of the game might now be gone forever. :-(

backup of old lj entries? [Jul. 1st, 2014|06:26 pm]

Does anyone know if the old LJ entries were ever backed up anywhere? I was reading through some of them from 2005 and lots of the journals have comments disabled, which means none of the old comments can be viewed. I was feeling nostalgic and trying to remember the old characters and plotlines. ;)

I figure it's probably a long-shot that the comments were saved anywhere, but hey, it can't hurt to ask!

Maybe I'm the only lurker still skulking around the Dungeons. My computer died and it took me awhile to figure how to post here from my smarter-than-me phone.

I am so happy Dungeons is not dead yet!

Every day I've checked since April 1 except this past weekend when things just got too hectic. But it made me insanely happy to see the Weasely's and Severus again!

thank you!

April Fool's! [Apr. 4th, 2013|01:58 am]

Finally getting to read the April Fool's entries, and they're awesome! It's crossovers, right? I picked out White Collar for Marik for sure! Loved Immy and Harry with the Dementor at Disney World--"A Dementor at the Happiest Place on Earth?" LOL! And Immy was adorable, as always!

EDIT: Oh, and Bill--True Blood, am I right? I nearly died laughing at the accent. :)

So I was perusing the archives looking for evidence of Marik and Bill's previous friendship (they were apparently very good friends http://dozhd.insanejournal.com/14338.html#comments), and I'd completely forgotten that Bill's partial lycanthropy was already a major plotline in the Dungeons. Which makes his current behavior even more mysterious. If he's already been dealing with wolf-like tendencies and scars, then what's this new injury and behavior all about?

I love it whenever Ron and Draco actually agree on something. :) And Ron always has a refreshing knack for putting things into perspective, doesn't he? (“*Albus Dumbledore* is having it off with our Lily.”) Ron saying that Lily obviously has no clue what she's doing was perfect, as she keeps insisting that she does. Ah, what a deliciously complex situation.

I'm so intrigued by Bill! He's acting so weird! And talking about lying vs. honesty with Charlie...I think Marik knows something's up, he was so curious when he first met Bill.

Thoughts as to what's up?

Didn't Bill and Marik teach at Hogwarts at the same time? In fact, I oculd have sworn there was at least one time they went out for drinks together. It just seems odd that Bill would act like he doesn't know him at all.
