I was noting today that google site searches don't seem to be finding old messages on the old forum.
I was searching for some names I'm certain are on a thread about escape evaders etc, for example the service mens names on the airliner G-AGES don't return from an
xxxx site:rafcommands.com search
I wondered, I in the last week or so 'submitted' my own site to google to get their web spiders to run through it. Might this be an option for you? It requires a free account subscription. Pop the DC Forum link into google and see if their spiders might run through it.
If you had a link to the old forum, from the RAF Commands home page also it might help the spiders see it and keep it cached.
Now, I can't be certain that my own site is now wonderfully indexed but I'm hoping it helps.
There is such a wealth of knowledge on the old forum that its a pity to not be able to acess it this way.
