    Hi all

    For those who don't know WZ forums are changing software in the immediate week. With that we're concerned in case we lose 11 years worth of fed history. We started an archive project last year and we need this finished this week.

    So what do we need from you?

    I need volunteers (fed or not, I don't care) to help with the archive. You'll be assigned a cycle (3 rounds and PPV) to copy the shows into word and e-mail it to us. I'll show you the easiest way to do it.

    Please respond to this thread if you can and I'll assign you your round tomorrow evening (Sunday UK time). Please only do this if you have the time to do it, we don't want to get to Thursday and miss MD 103 or something.

    With that the shows will also be delayed by a week so creative can focus on getting this sorted too.

    Any questions just reply here.

    Yeah, I'll help.

    When I did started the process, I used Google Chrome and clicked Print. There is an option to not print the page but to save it as a PDF. That is what I've done.

    Lee attempted to explain a different way to me but it all depends on the software and possibly the browser you use.

    The PDF idea does seem quicker. Hmm.

    I'll get to you all in a few hours (about 10pm UK time).

    Yeah I'll assign a cycle each (should be 6 shows + a PPV) and then when you're done if you want another I'll do that too. Expect assignments in about 3 hours.

    And it's just copy it, save it under its name (Meltdown 104 for example) and email it in? No formatting etc?

    Yep.

    I took the liberty of doing two more PPV cycles whilst I had a bit of time spare. So that's two less to do really.

    Exactly that. If you go in print preview it opens up for an easy copy/paste into a word document.

    The main two things to remember though: Open spoiler tags and if a show is more than one page click the view on one page button on the print preview.

    I already told Lee but mines is done.

    It only takes a few moments each if you have a word document open and a browser. Copy and paste from the browser, rename the saved file to the show name, rinse and repeat.
