Any objection if I move this sticky into the Archive now? I think we are quite advanced, so can move it out the main forum.

I now have all the build guides that were missing in my Google drive, need to fix the formatting before re-posting.

If it's not already done, I propose that this thread be added to "stuff worthy of archiving here." I will volunteer to do it if you'll let me.


( @Vildecor referenced this in a reply to one of my posts yesterday, and I think it flooded my brain with dopamine and serotonin. 😵 )

Also, @maxicek : when you do move this thread to SPF Archives, would you please leave it stickied there, so that it stays near the top of the front page?

@Swamigoon Copying threads over is open to anyone, nobody needs permission - Just don’t copy one twice :)

In the case of that particular thread, I’m happy for you to move it if you edit out the parts where Ssog refers to modifying SP with hacked charms.

Yes, when I move this thread I will leave it stickied in the archive forum.

I'm marking MP Threads as done. I have made a new single thread. Given the reduced activity in MP, I don't think we need multiple.
Build Compilation is basically done, but I need to re-do the links for all the guides marked (d2.net). I have local copies of all of these now but many need editing. I may try and put them straight into the Strategy Compendium.
D2 and Macs needs a complete re-write, there is no point copying anything over.

Community & Links I will re-write much of, but the first two posts are done. I need to get all the new links first. Please have a look through what is there from post 3 onwards and see if anything is worth moving over. I am going to drop some of the older guides, for example Jae's time travelling guide. It was good for the time, but now we have helvete's The Time Travellers Vortex, I don't think it is needed. I'm wondering if @Helvete will beat George RR Martin to completing the series....

PvP Thread '12 Edition - What thread is this? @nulio moved the main post over
Anything Goes D2 Lounge - Do we really need to move all of this? It is unsearchable pretty much anyway?

The PvP thread in question contains theorycrafting by Gripphon, e.g. this gem:
I'm reading through it currently and I'll just pick out repost worthy stuff. (there's some PvP guide videos as well in there)

I've bookmarked some good posts by @Fruit in the Anything Goes Lounge as well as some of my own. I'll move those over as well. That particular thread will have to be cherry picked basically.

Created a thread for the Anything Goes Lounge as well as the PvP thread from '12. They both contain handpicked posts since it would be pointless to copy everything over. What I picked for the PvP thread is subjective and for the Anything Goes Lounge I just picked mine and some of fruit's posts, simply because I had them bookmarked already. However anyone is free to copy over more posts into the threads and I will add them to the index in the start post.

I focused mostly on theorycrafting and ignored most of the 'chatting' going on in these threads to keep it simple. I will probably look for some more Anything Goes Lounge posts when I feel like it. I know there's some excellent posts on shrine running by Gripphon in there!

Just finished the migration of @superdave's how far can superdave go? thread, which officially marks the completion of migrating all the mat/pat/guardians listed in the compilation. Before I tackle another large migration project, I'm going to go ahead and work on the clean-up pass of the M/P/G archive (editing broken image links, correcting links, and fixing the rest of the special character codes).

When I come across a tournament link in one of the write-ups, I'll help finish migrating the internal posts of that tournament before continuing. That should help get a large chunk of that done. When I'm finished with this, I'll see what else needs to be moved over.

@maxicek yeah, I've been a bit lazy doing other games for a while. Grinded Hearthstone to masters on both EU and US servers.

I won't promise a release date, but there will be a complete rework of the guide, especially since so much information has surfaced since the incomplete guide was written.

Just now, I'm laid off work, but the weather is nice, so wife is using me for slave labour in the garden.

@Helvete If you need anything from the .txts, any tables or other information regarding the internal differences between versions you can ask me, I have a lot of stuff available/bunkered from conversations with @Fruit. Especially lists of qlvls, rlvls and other such stats can be easily produced if they're needed.

I finished migrating internal posts for results threads in RFLs, RFOs, Zodthon 2016, and Other Item Finding Tourneys. I'm going through those today to clean up broken pics and a few other things. I'll migrate the "running" threads for all of those during the coming week. I'll coordinate with @Pb_pal on internal posts for results and running threads for MFOs and Mini-MFOs after that.

Also, the 99er character thread by @jjscud is finished migrating--all 60 of those are posted. Some place holder language in opening post can be cleaned up, but all the content is there.
