Don't worry it's a Library of Congress Internet Heritage Site.Hopefully a org like ArchiveTeam backs it up. Or Lowtax opens the past threads up to the public. There's a ton of internet history on there. Including the discovery of Chris.
As his begging got more and more urgent idiot goons started equating Something Awful with Lowtax. If one is in trouble then the other is and donating to one is like donating to the other because they are the same thing.I'm still catching up on posts made overnight, but I'm seeing an awful lot of "don't feel guilty about asking for money, you deserve it" posts directed at Lowtax - which is weird because any value people have derived from the forums has been in spite of Lowtax, not because of him.
It's only the front page which has been captured, and only intermittently. There were 131 captures between 30 August 2002 and 7 March 2018. The links to the forums on the captured pages work, though.Don't worry it's a Library of Congress Internet Heritage Site.
Something Awful, often abbreviated to SA, is a comedy website housing a variety of content, including blog entries, forums, feature articles, digitally edited pictures, and humorous media reviews. It was created by Richard "Lowtax" Kyanka in 1999 as a largely personal website, but as it grew, so...www.loc.gov
Yes, it's archived by the Library of Congress dumb as that sounds.
The way it read in one part of it had me thinking it was saving the forums a bit too but turns out I was wrong.
Yes, kick Tiny Tim's crutch out from under him, touching poop is always funny.Everybody report his patreon for saying racist, anti furry and homophobic shit years ago....its a current violation of terms of service...Who is with me? The meltdown is well worth it.
The thread has already devolved into discussions about whether YOSPOS should rewrite the forums, Lowtax should pay someone to fix the existing code, or the forums should migrate to new software - a discussion which has been had many times before with no resolution. Lowtax will inevitably make the worst and most expensive choice.It's Lowtax, we already know he's going to fuck this up somehow.
He'll probably pocket the money, claim he's trying to do something then never actually do anything other than get himself a 6 month supply of Ambien & Franzia.The thread has already devolved into discussions about whether YOSPOS should rewrite the forums, Lowtax should pay someone to fix the existing code, or the forums should migrate to new software - a discussion which has been had many times before with no resolution.

This is a key reason, he made the forums a safe space for people who have no money (troons, SJWs, woke exceptional individuals). Look at the Ape Cage forum which is moderated by Brittany, the whitest black woman. They spend all day talking about their sad lives and how they can’t catch a break and it’s white America/capitalism’s fault so people should pay them money to exist.Lowtax allowed his comedy website to be overrun by troons and cat ladies who couldn't care less about his struggles as a heteronormative, cishet white male. He cucked himself into a corner and is now learning that wokepoints don't amount to shit in the real world. May the dubious legacy of SomethingAwful serve as a cautionary tale for future generations of community managers.
