They are trying to save fan history ---but the archive can be easily assembled and actually, lots of those stories are still available on fanfiction.net and AO3. What could have been the real loss was the Channel D archive on Yahoogroups, but I *think* I n=may have saved it, along with the other Channels too.
My husband, Mr. I.T. Support helped and I did open a few of the emails to make sure they were there. Of cours,e then my computer crashed and I thought I'd lost it but my husband assures me we did not.
Now that the semester is over and I get some time, I see if everything is ok.
