Lost a Thread? A way to recover it

by mushroom »

If the pictures are gone from the val d'Aosta thread, it doesn't make any sense to repost it.  Arrivederci! 

Don't make a special project of looking for that Bologna thread in every thing you downloaded.  It's possible Apprentice Wine Geek saved it (he was the one who posed the question).  I imagine he'll show up at some point and I'll ask him.

I got the same message when I tried to find a cached version of this thread:

About the trip I took to the incredibly beautiful Val d'Aosta in ...

www.frommers.com/community/forum.../italy/trip-took-incredibly-beautif...     This thread and the Bologna thread are the only ones that include comments of mine that I think might be of any enduring value to future travelers, so if there is a way to get a copy and re-post them, that would be nice.   And thanks to Road Crazy for posting that other "real Italy" thread, especially in such a readable way.

Hi Mushroom-I know I saved Apprencice Wine Geeks Trip Reports, but I don't think I saved his whole threads.As for the saved Cached ,those are just temporary and always disappear in time.Usually a few weeks or less.

I don't have an answer on why Google dumped  all the threads in the transfer of all the sites.I just know they did it in every case. Part of the reason might be that they kept the followers for Twitter,etc for themselves and that's what was important to them for future marketing,not the users actual material.. I  think Google is just getting too big in general .I was a big fan before of a lot of their products and their " Do no Evil" mantra. But like PHeymont stated earlier, it seems they are now too big for their britches .

I know a few others saw our warning threads and messages so they might of saved stuff as well. In a little time though ,a lot of great new  info will be  up  on the forums and I hope most of the great contributors too.

That's really two questions. The first, of course, is why they did not allow the Frommers to keep that material on the frommers.com site, especially since they have made clear they have no use for it themselves.

As for the second, it lies in the nature of these cached sites that Travel Rob found. They are actually not archival; as the text with them makes clear, they are saved for the purpose of site-owners and advertisers, who calculate rankings (how much should an ad on that site cost, is this place a good one to place my ads, etc.) Therefore, it was explained to me, it's constantly re-collected as long as the site is live, and eventually just ages out--sort of like a loop of tape in an old-style security camera that keeps re-recording over the old events. Since the site that we're looking at ceased to exist somewhere on April 26...

Well, at least consciousness on the carbon issue is spreading...at least to the comics and the Kingdom of Id:

Well, on a day when carbon dioxide levels reached their highest in human history, I can keep this in perspective.  There always comes a Last Waltz, and nobody ever sang about it more truly than Levon Helm

 

Why do the best things always disappear?

As PHeymont, Road Crazy and I saved some threads ,we each saw how valuable the material really was.And of course the question was, What do you save when you can't save it all? What threads will be valuable to you and others? Each answer of course is different and none are right or wrong.

I found myself saving  funny and personal stories, rather than how to, where to ,stuff.Like Garry's  Culture Wars threads,A lot of great stories by posters we no longer hear from  talking about something unusual or funny that happened to them on trips.

 So the site will be back better and  stronger of course, but it shows you what PHemont said was true. That this has been a real Community and there are some really talented travel writers here.
