I notice there are threads that date way back to 2003, yet the farthest back I can access is to 2006. Is there anyway to view threads older than that?
If you go to the bottom of the main page and click on the link that says "Archive" you can see lo-fi versions of some older threads, including a link to see the "full" version.
When searching through the archives I discovered that at one point BBF apparently needed to clear up space, so they deleted a bunch of threads that hadn't been posted in before a certain time period. I believe the only reason some of those earlier threads still exist is because they've been posted in more recently.
That being said, I cannot access any of the old threads either.
