1st Class Kink: Archiving

By now, all my XMFC friends have seen the epic!wankery that has gone down on 1st Class Kink. As a result, many members have left the comm for other kink memes. While I do not blame them for doing so, I also oppose the brashness with which they have done so. While [livejournal.com profile] oakenshields13 states she will not delete the comm, regardless of whether the current round is the last, the fact remains that she holds sole control over the come and can do whatever she wants, up to and including deletion.

As a result, I have begun backing up all fills, starting with Round 1. When I finish saving fills, I intend to start saving works-in-progress. Unfortunately, this is a very large task. I estimate there are no less than 800 Fills to be saved, and I haven't even looked at the WIP posts yet.

So I'm looking anyone who has free time and is willing to do so to help archive. If you would like to join in, leave a comment here, and I'll give you a specific post and page range, as well as how I've been saving all items.

I will make this a public post, so if you are unable to help but have friends that would like to, please refer them here.

What wankery is this?

Basically the maintainer kicked the other mod out. And the masses revolted.

Excellent! Knew I could count on my bros. I'm still working through Round 1 Fills (damn you homework!) so if you could start on Round 2 Fills (http://1stclass-kink.livejournal.com/2570.html), it would be awesome. The way I've doing it is copying and pasting to word, starting with the subject line/username/image for the prompt and going to the "reply parent thread" line of the last part of the story. I figure any comments in between can be deleted later.

To save, I've been using the following format for titled stories:
title - author

and for untitled

Untitled - prompt subject - author

If the story is posted anonymously, I use Anon as the author.

Ultimately, I want to be able to zip all the stories by round, and have each round with a spread sheet listing genre, kinks, warnings, authors, etc.

Awesome! Ok, will start on Round 2 then. =)

Bro's are always up for helping each other out, yeah? And honestly, there are so many amazing fills that to lose them b/c of wank and drama would be a crime.
