I've uploaded the first 11591 postings to the DragWars Yahoo Group in (compresed) plain text format to my OneDrive at the following location:

http://1drv.ms/1ufaQop

I did try attaching it to this forum, but I think it's either too big or there's something about the content\format it doesn't like... :(

So, about the archive - the Perl script I used to download these messages has left all the metadata in each message, so it's a lot 'bulkier' than I was expecting, but it can be parsed and searched by your favourite text editor, so hopefully will still be of some value.

I have also started a (very ambitious) project to catalogue the archive, but there's a lot of content to sift through so it's likely to take me a very long time. The work in progress is hosted here:

http://cobwebbedforest.co.uk/library/dragwars.php

The MS Word document (not yet available) into which I imported the attached text file started at about 6.8 million words. The current count in my work in progress Word document is 5.8 million... Still a long way to go!

And if anyone has the last thousand or so messages from the Yahoo Group that're missing from this archive, it'd be great if you're able to share them here, too.

I'm thinking, archery, shields (biggest topic if I recall correctly), we had different opinions on creating an archer character class... sappers of course... I always thought we should implement terrain rules. I think Wodenkrait uploaded his idea on new archery rules, and Chris Loh as well...

There used to be a grid where you can keep track of which months had 200 posts... Really love it when you see 'colourful shades of red' on the dragwars forum.....

There is a mod for phpBB that allows for much more granular statistics to be gathered about forum activity:

Shaun, do you fancy taking a look?

Looks reasonable - I'll wait and see if I have got digests working first before I work on a second mod though.
