Minetest Forum Recovery Project

I was able to recover over 2,300 lost forum posts between March 13 and April 28, 2019, accounting for about 70% of the missing content following the server crash. Over the course of two days, I compiled and collated over 400 cached pages from Google, Bing, Yandex, and the Wayback Machine. This project represents the culmination of that work.

The "docs" subdirectory contains the forum, topic, and post listings as well as the archive of recovered pages. It is presently configured as the Website root and hosted on the GitHub pages platform. All published links will remain permanent and can be safely referenced within future discussions.

The "tools" subdirectory contains the awk scripts that I wrote to parse the cached pages and to generate listings of topics (organized by forum) and posts (sorted by author) for easy reference. I tried to make these tools as general-purpose as possible, but they are ultimately dependent on the existing phpBB templates.
