Valentine Z's F7 Archive - Project "Langolier-Proofing".

Valentine Z's F7 Archive - Project "Langolier-Proofing"
Version I.

In conjunction with the Archive Megathread, it is of note that there are a lot of times when Forum 7 posts tend to get lost to space and time. That happens, it is the part and parcel of life. However, there are moments when a F7 megathread can outshine the rest, in terms of content, or for the sake of simple nostalgia value. These threads have a shelf life of 7 days after they are locked or after they have no more activity, so rather than wait for that to happen, why not take it into my own hands? Using a browser extension that does not intrude and simply Ctrl+S the pages, but in script form, on top of basic knowledge on URLs of the threads, I hereby present to you, the F7 Archive Project. All the files and links will take you directly to my Gmail account I used for NS stuff (so no personal stuff in there).

LEGAL: This does not use APIs or does anything else on the sites. All it does is simply opening < 500 pages on my browser while logged out (just so that my name won't hinder on the pages), and then using a browser extension to save the page on my local drive. No actions done on the site itself through pressing/spamming buttons on the forums.

If you would like to contribute or suggest a thread to be archived, feel free to DM me on Discord, or reach out to me by TG, but I must note that just like the Moderation team, I also have a few things to consider because if the thread has 400-500 pages, it can take some time to load:

- It must deem noteworthy enough. I know it sounds a bit hypocritical, considering this is to archive everything. Of course, my say is not final, so if you absolutely want it archived, you can convince me.

- I will not archive those that are already archived, because it would have been repetitive. Remember that this also takes some time on my part, not because I am literally hitting Ctrl + S for every file, but even with automation, it still takes a while.

- Unfortunately, if you wrote with spoilers inside for some of the posts, you are screwed. I can't find a way around it on a PDF, and I can't upload all the possible HTML pages because that is clunky.

- The Portrait problem is solved now. I don't know what I did, but I am not complaining about it!
