Neopoet Archive

We've applied a fix to the archive of our previous site ( You should now be able to view all poetry posted up through April 7, 2010 (through 3:17 am to be precise). If you have any trouble, please reach out to us on the technical forum (


I can not get the archive to open it gave a rather weird message. I will see if I can capture it to send to Andrew.


but none of my former posts or data shows up.
There are tabs that allow you if you are a premium member.
Up until last month I couldn't even get to my page... so I guess there is some progress here.

'write on! let these words free.'

i appreciate the effort of your team and the moral commitment to help the members to retrieve data fromn the archives of Neopoet before the crash.,....i am sure you will be successful in achieving that objective....for the present though like others have commented before me..i am facing he same problems...

The recovery and this archive is excellent, just takes a little patience, always remembering that the page 1 was the last entries for that system, page 5000 goes back to 2007.
