Shutdown of WOTC forums

Just read that WOTC is going to shut down their forums on October 29.
http://community.wizards.com/forum/player-help/threads/4255596

As the Planescape subsection includes many conversions of Planescape monsters for 3.5 Ed. I'd recommend everybody still playing 3rd Ed. to save a copy of them for otherwise they will be lost thereafter.

We encourage past and current users to retrieve any information you want to retain from the Community Forums for both Dungeons & Dragons and Magic: The Gathering. The shutdown will occur on October 29, 2015, at 10:00 a.m. PT. We want to provide enough time for our forum members to move their content, and we recognize that given our forum's vibrant user base and extensive history, this may take time. Any information still on the forums on the cut-off date will be deleted.

Anyone who would like to pull an archive of these threads we would be glad to host copies and take in refugees from the shutdown :)

I've copied the conversions. Editing will take some time though.

This is going to be a very big document (probably about 350 pages), although I suppose that some of the creatures have already been included in Denizens of the Transitive Planes.
Is there any possibility to put them into some kind of alphabetical list instead? Maybe in connection with the wiki?

Ah thanks for the heads up. I think I archived anything I really wanted from there long ago, but should probably double check.

thanks!

I was so sad to hear that the WoTC forums were going down. I buckled down and copied content from a couple of threads, but I didn't hit all of them by a long shot. I look forward to organized documents anyone else has for the threads they copied. I might pretty up the ones I did manage to snag and post them up here, too.

What's the status on archived info from the forums?

Anyone have it available, in any form?

Maybe we can slowly get this hosted here as well.

I have the monster

I have the monster conversions, but I haven't come very far in organizing them (currently it's a 387 pages Word-document). Seems I do not have the names of the original posters, though.

We could repost them on a forum thread, but this sort of huge threads tend to become very confusing in the end. Some kind of alphabetical list would probably be the best solution. Maybe in connection with the wiki.
