I noticed a bunch of posts disappeared when they migrated from Vanilla to phpBB. It would be nice if they could be restored. In particular thatseattleguy's post "Give 1, Get 1: Misuse of the Wiki pages by some of the press" which had some insightful comments on press distortion of items posted on boards.
Another problem that arose because of the migration is that all the url's for the posts changed, breaking links from other sites.

First, just to be clear, we didn't purposely leave any posts out.

There were only two cases of any known posts not being caried over. I'm planning to hand move them over the week. The first were posts made to the Vanilla board. There is no migration scripts (that we were able to find, links welcome?) for Vanilla -> phpBB2/3. I'm going to write one, but it will take a couple days until I have the time. The second was the "G1G1 - Give 1, Get 1" forum from olpchelp.com. This was a data handling blip, and I'm planning to restore them as well. Probably in the next few days.
