Creature Catalog Issues

Since the latest Enworld revision the Creature Catalog Forums have been displaced to become sub-forums of the Pathfinder & Starfinder forum from the Dungeons & Dragons forum where they belong.

Also, every thread in Monster Homebrews and Homebrews Graveyard has vanished and the Creature Catalogue Website link is broken - it still points to the old location of https://www.enworld.org/forum/forumdisplay.php?197-Creature-Catalogue-Website, not the current Creature Catalog Monster Index.

Well at least General Monster Talk is still working!

It hasn't moved. The name of the parent forum was simply changed from Pathfinder, Older Editions, & Variants to Pathfinder & Starfinder -- quite a while ago!

Well the Creature Catalog are still D&D 3/3.5 conversions, so does it really belong in a Pathfinder parent forum?

Wouldn't it make better sense as a sub-forum of the Dungeons & Dragons forum, who's self-declared role is to "Discuss all topics about D&D including D&D rules and products and history, or post your own creations for others to share".

Sure.

We’re busy with the software upgrade, and there will be lots of changes in the next few weeks.

Thanks.

There's no hurry. I'm sure the upgrade has a lot of higher priority things to get sorted out.

Hopefully when everything's running smoothly the threads that have gone AWOL from some of the CC's subfora will reappear. Or at least the important ones. It'd be a pain for someone at Admin to restore them manually.

Well the good news is that the Creature Catalog Forums have their own entry in Hosted Forums now, which makes sense.

Any idea when the "updated and revised version" of the Creature Catalog files themselves will reappear? There's currently nothing in https://www.enworld.org/creaturecatalog - no Index or any of the Monsters from Aartuk to Zygraat.

I just get "Oops! We ran into some problems."

Presumably that'll happen quite often until you get the upgrade sorted out.

Another issue. Many of the Creature Catalog forum threads (General Monster Talk subforum) seem to have been displaced to other forums in the software upgrade. Maybe this happened to the threads from the other subforums before the switchover also.

If we track down some of these threads, how do you want us to notify you to move them back? Use the post report function?

Yes, I'd like to know the answer to that too.

Okay, I've checked my records and of the recent activity we are missing:


I'm happy leaving the Killer Klowns thread where it is but we'd like our Krakens back please.

There's also a a whole bunch of threads from before the big Enworld crash of 2016 that got displaced to the general RPG and D&D threads, but unfortunately I don't have a record of what those all were.

Freyar and I were able to remember the main conversion threads but a nearly all of the lesser General Monster Talk threads are still AWOL from 2016.

Plus the Monster Homebrews and Homebrews Graveyard Forums are empty and the Creature Catalogue Website files are missing.

Cleon and I also have all the posted critters if someone needs them. The big issue for us is finding the old CC threads as much as possible.

Could we get the website posted on the new forum so we can continue to access it? Failing that does anyone have the files or entries from the old site? ( I appreciate the .zip I recieved from loky, but he mentioned they were incomplete.) Cleon and freyar, could you please post your copies? or send them my way?
