The place to get all the latest news. Also, new posters on the board should come here for a general outline of our policies and practices at Roswell Fanatics.

Hi, I tried to get a hold of someone over at the yahoo group and Jennifer over there pointed out that the archives can be reached via the wayback machine here:

Thank you so very much. I'm rushing over there to save all the stories I love. Better to be safe then sorry. ;)

Hi all!

I recently had to do a fresh reinstall of the board software due to server changes with our host. I inadvertently lost the archive file with the refresh so I need to go sift through some old file and look for it. I know it's somewhere, but it's likely backed up on an old external hard drive in a box somewhere.

Thank you for your patience!

Any chance on a heads up on the Archive coming back? So many links on the board are not working any more and I miss reading the oldies. 😉

It would be great to get the old archives back. The wayback archive has old fics but a lot of the fics are not complete.

Try this. It works for me on most stories

I found this in a search engine…. It appears to be at least a partial recreation of the archive:

Is there any chance that we can get some of that archive transferred to Archive Of Our Own?

Also ... hello, I am still alive! Missed everyone!
