About the Symthic Forums Archive category


An archive of notable technical posts to now-archived Symthic Forums. Only technical posts allowed.

One (Discourse) topic per one thread at archived forums. Include any multi-part posts (e.g. if original post was continued in the second).

Include the following:

  • Original topic name and date of posting
  • Author of the post
  • The post body (the text, images, tables, etc). Try to include all accompanying media, and format into Discourse’s format


  • You can copy-paste formatted text and paste in Discourse reply box, and Discourse automatically converts it into markdown-like syntax (i.e. links appear as links, headers appear as headers, etc).
  • Open up all spoiler-tags before copy/pasting to also include contents of those
  • Due to how Symthic forums are archived, some of the characters are displayed wrong (wrong encoding). These include characters like closing double-quotes. You have to manually fix these.
