Tips on preserving your own forum contributions

One way to save huge parts of the forum for posterity is to use a web scraper to scrape the required topics. I use webscraper.io as a Firefox Developer Tool (it's free) to scrape product information from wholesalers websites to populate a website for my daughter's sweet shop. You can save the scraped data in Excel format or as a .csv file. I use the latter and import into Libre Calc (also free). It's simple to then use that data as is or produce your own website with the topics and posts.
