    ive had a celeb pic forum for years, i got busted with something unrelated to this site and freaked out and took this forum down and threw out all the pics i had on my computer

    i started it again, have to redownload everything i had and most older stuff is gone from the internet

    i can get it on the wayback machine but you cant go into threads, just a that page isnt here message

    i know its there from at least November 7th 2013, almost 20,000 pic threads

    i couldnt pay you. its my life, it revolves around this forum. youd be doing me a great favor in recovering hundreds of thousands of pics i may never have the chance to get again all at once

    When I visit the forum I get this message:

    " It looks like this forum doesn't exist any more. The forum admin has opted to remove it from the ProBoards service.

    If you want, you can go ahead and http://www.proboards.com/ with ProBoards"

    What's the problem ?

    I'd ask them if there is a chance they have a back up - you may get lucky.

    You should just scrape http://www.pornbb.org/celebrity-pictures-f15.html

    Starting from the last page to most recent.

    Problem is most of those images are tiny thumbnails which lead to the full size image so you'd need a script to somehow scrape the full image rather than the thumbnails.

    Honestly you might have to do it by hand.


    I have to ask... what's the point?
    You had Total Posts - 19,059 with only 213 signed up members.

    Seems like a dead niche to me.

    I could be completely wrong and probably am though lol.



    EDIT
    Just realized your forum wasn't adult celebrity pictures. I looked at your web archive lol.

    So you were just posting normal photos of celebrities?

    That's even weirder than I thought.

    honestly its just what i like to do, im single, old. i follow the celebs and download their pics everyday anyway

    i get traffic, link to my other sites on it, i make no money from it. i understand people just want to look at the pics and arent interested in talking, ive been involved with all the major celeb pic forums for over 10 years and its the same everywhere, thanks for the pics, thats all

    Ahh ok that makes sense. Well I hope I didn't offend you.
    If you like the niche than by all means.

    And I do see your point, most people don't comment on warez forums but they deffinitly use them.

    does anyone understand how this is supposed to go

    Code:
    ## Installation
    
    You need to install Ruby on your system (>= 1.9.2) - if you don't already have it.
    Then run:
    
        gem install wayback_machine_downloader
    
    If you run into permission errors, you might have to add sudo in front of this command.

    If your hosting company have no backups, then you fucked up! Time machine would be not a 100% good method cuz some pages would be broken, no data etc, so I would suggest build it from scratch, bye bye to the past.
