@EPIC Old UDK forum content has been removed! Please help!

When the forum transitioned to the new format (when UE5 went live), all of the UDK posts from the old forum have now been lost. All of the links just redirect to https://forums.unrealengine.com/.

There are still those of us who are working on live UDK projects (with many active players), who rely on the content of the legacy forums for continued development.

PLEASE can you look into restoring this content. There is over a decade’s worth of information that is no longer available.

An example of one of the many thousands of links that has been removed:

Thank you.

What I’ve been doing for the last week or two is searching for what I need on Google, then using the Google cached page.

wow that is no good.

You posted this over the weekend, so it’s not surprising that there wouldn’t be an official response yet. In a couple of days, if there isn’t a response, do you want to try tagging specific people? Do you want us to report your post?

I actually saw this happened last week.I did send a message to VictorLerp(5 days ago?) as he was the one that fixed it last time(notified people from epic team), but still no word from him.I personally will wait a few more days and try with another epic employee from the forums.

I know it is not ideal, but for those struggling, here is a example(with the word kismet) for searching with cache (just paste it in google)
