Just curious... LOTS of posts here, but how complete is the collection?

Apologies ahead of time if this has been answered somewhere else too - I'm still new here and couldn't find the answer!

I ask because, for example, there was a helpful old thread on the ME2 Story forums that I cannot find here. Tried searching for words from the post title, the author's name, and even dug around in both the Story forum and the Archive forum based on the date of the original post.

For now, I can still access it via Google's cache.

Original link:
https://forum.bioware.com/topic/117167- ... de-for-me2
Google cache:
https://webcache.googleusercontent.com/ ... clnk&gl=us

I have no idea what was involved in scraping the massivity that was the Bioware forums, so if it's gone, it's gone! I can live with that, I'll just make my own offline backup. ^_^

Yes! Thank you.

Any idea why the search engine can't locate it by the word "squadmates" or the author's name, though?

Due to how the Bioware forums had to be imported, it was not possible to index the posts in the board's search engine. In the future, I'd suggest using Google for the search and appending site:fextralife.com to the search terms. For example, using the following search string in Google will return every post from that topic:

Code: Select allsquadmates campaign site:fextralife.com
