In case anybody wanted to scrounge old threads the Way Back Machine has a pretty good archive of the old board. ...

For newcomers who aren't familiar with what happened, ProBoards kicked us off their forum farm, and wouldn't provide any reason. Many of us moved to Wikipedia Review at ProBoards, but the same Rule 25a that allowed them to kill Wikipedia Sucks at ProBoards also applies to the version of Wikipedia Review at ProBoards.

I don't know the entire history, but here are the links to the other WP criticism sites along with their fates: -- Wikipedia Review (WR) started in 2005 or 2006, and apparently scuttled by its owner for unstated reasons in 2012 -- Wikipediocracy (WO or WPO) set up by a small group of Wikipedia Review refugees in March 2012. Still online, but some say its best days are behind it. Wikipedia Review at ProBoards, started in 2014. Still active, but ProBoard's "Rule 25a" that allowed them to kill WS also applies to this incarnation of Wikipedia Review. They have set up a forum independent of ProBoards at -- Wikipedia Sucks at ProBoards (WS) Terminated by ProBoads for unknown reasons in February 2017.

Most of the links are useless because the threads are mostly "Page cannot be displayed due to robots.txt."
The site is better (about 250 thread pages).

We have about 600+ thread pages. But due to legal reasons concerning the publisher (proboards) licence and subsequent takedown due to a defamation action (by a UK law firm) we are archiving them for our private use on our own Wikipedia Sucks private servers at
