Archive Threads

I'm sure I saw a thread where this was being discussed a few weeks ago, but I couldn't find it.

Basically, where are the first posts of some of the threads in the archives?
Generally, I don't really care because I read the archives on tlr.com where the formatting isn't so horribly borked, but that appears to be missing some threads that are available here.
Which would be great, but those threads tend to be missing the OP. Example.

This makes arguably the most important and useful part of the archives (Tutorials) completely useless.

I read somewhere that there was issues with the parser that was converting threads to this format or something, but that was back in December last year, and I really don't think it should take six months... So what's up?

The thing is that i am working on meanwhile 3 FL communities, one 3,5GB big mod and giving support to various other projects.

Yes the parser for the TLR databases has to be rewritten... before i can do that half a million other more important jobs have to be finished.
Unlike the stuff that you can find on the .com domain we are working not with a dead archive, we are working with a fully functional part of the forum. So everything is a little bit more complicated here.

Complicated or not, it would be a great asset to the site and give people more reason to choose tlr.org. As it stands, there's not a whole lot here other than a few people that can't be gotten just as easily (or in the archive's case more easily) elsewhere.
