Can we save the old Forum for historical purposes?

Can we save the old Forum for historical purposes?

I search the old Forum for information on cycling eye glasses, advocacy disputes, old road closings, or discussions about bike maintenance or bike saddles.  I would hate to lose all that.

Any way to capture it and save it? or can we just leave it there, close it for new stuff, but have a pointer to it for such research?  Or is something like this the plan?

Sorry cannot do that.  Totally different systems.

I just checked out the technical side of this. You CAN leave a yahoo group unused for years. So you COULD cut off participation in the old Yahoo BBC group 

http://sports.groups.yahoo.com/group/bbctalk/

put a pointer to it from the new web site and just let it sit there as a resource for years. There is absolutely no need to reformat the old group messages into the new format.

This does not address the desirability of doing this.  Clearly if I am the only person in favor of this, the old yahoo BBC discussion--with all of its irreplaceable history--should be deleted.

I heartily agree with Ed. The old forum is an historical archive which should be kept.
There's a lot of great info about biking and the history of the club there.
