Looking for an ancient thread

EnyoEnyo MemberFull Members
This may be a bit of an odd request, so I hope its not inappropriate.

Back in the long long ago, I played a forum roleplay here, and I'm trying to find the old thread. Can't seem to locate it - maybe it was deleted, but I did find other threads from that era, so Im wondering if maybe I just haven't figured out how to find it or if it might have been moved to an archive somewhere.

The thread was a 33 Superhero roleplay, ran by TG Barighm, though it eventually fizzled out. I remember it fondly and was hoping to re-read it, but I can't seem to find it anymore.

It started around December 2010 and ran about until January 2012.

I've already searched for various terms that would have been in the thread like my characters name (LALA) and the likes, but none of the threads with those terms that turn up in search are the related to what I'm looking for, and the forum I thought it was on (Saving Throw Gaming) doesn't list it either. I did find various other roleplays I had here, including the Broken Glass one I ran myself and the Savage Tide game I was in at the time.

I don't really expect anything to turn up, it was a lifetime ago and you can't expect things to stay available forever on the internet, but I thought I could at least ask ^_^ Thanks for any attempts to help in advance :)

    It appears to be sitting in a hidden archive. As I suspect there is some particular reason for it, I will defer to those who might know what that was. There seems to be a number of 33 threads in that archive so I suspect they might have been all put there at TG Barighm's request, potentially to keep him in control of the ruleset, so I can't say what could be done with it.

    Thank you so much for looking into it for me!

    I'm not sure why they'd be requested to be hidden, though I'm sure there was a good reason at the time! I can totally respect TG Barighm not wanting to have the game rules he designed in the open. I'm not looking for those, I just want to reread the old story I participated in.

    Is there any way to request a personal copy of the threads I participated in, or maybe just the posts that I made? I won't publish any of them to anyone else and I don't need access to any of the 33 ruleset either if that helps.

    Anyway, I very much appreciate you looking into this, I hope I am not causing too much trouble with this odd request.

    Is there anyone specific I could contact about this? If its simply not possible, I understand as well

    Now here is something I didn't expect to see when I decided to recover and archive all of my old games. I figured someone said something at one point, but not as recently as just a few months! Looks like it was a good idea to recover as many games as possible, but I'm archiving them at my old forum.

    I had the threads hidden not so much for the rules, but for the stories. I had people requesting I publish some of them at the time. Figured I might as well hide the rules too. Doesn't matter anymore though. Anyway, you can unhide the Superhero game.

    Btw, seems the new forum software doesn't like the space in my old account name or something. It can't find me. Whatever. New. Old. You know who it is. :P

    Well, since TG Barighm says it's all right, I've unhidden said thread. You can find it here: http://forums.rpgamer.com/discussion/16382/33-superhero-game/p1
    Bravely second...
    The courage to try again...
