    It's dead, Jim. Was it moved or deleted for a particular reason?

    I agree. That thread was the only useful thing I ever brought to the forum outside of stupid questions. Where'd it go?

    I don't think anyone would have disappeared it on purpose, but we're looking into it. The only thing I can think of is an accidental delete, but nothing's for sure yet. Anyone know the last time you accessed it? Or, better yet, do you have a screenshot of the last page?

    John, you're welcome to start a new thread. If we ever find the old one, we can just merge the two.

    Turns out you can, but not as simply as I hoped. And only up to page 40 out of 42 pages.

    Type: Beyond3d Movie reviews page xx, with "x" being the page you want, into google search and then click on "cached" for the result. Not working for all pages.

    Edit: Never mind, sorry. I got excited when I saw it worked for page 40. Can't get this method to work for other pages.

    Edit: Weird, by keeping "page" and the number next to each other I can get more hits.

    For example, "Beyond3D Forum Movie reviews page24" works, but "Beyond3D Forum Movie reviews page 24" doesn't. http://74.125.47.132/search?q=cache:eLPL84fd8tQJ:forum.beyond3d.com/showthread.php?p=1185571

    Still can't get all pages though.

    Feel free to put it back. The likely explanation was someone was cleaning up spam threads and got a little loose with the old mouse finger accidently and didn't notice the wheat with the chaff. And since spam threads are disappeared entirely out of the db, it's gonzers.
