-Technically yes, if Tapatalk closes down, we'd lose everything. Unless they have an option, as some sites have done over the years, of offering downloads of certain content.
But back in the Network 54 days, that's why I started the Projects Pages in the first place- if N54 died, I had nearly a decade of "build blog" type posts, which for me all kind of started back when I got the horizontal mill in '09. There were quite a few posts I'd put up of projects like that, that would be lost entirely if the board ever disappeared, but also were not easily found unless you knew specifically what you were looking for.
So a couple years ago, I started combing the archives (with a little help from you Guilders to remind me of projects I may have forgotten) and slowly transferring them over to properly organized individual pages on docsmachine.com where they could be easily found, read and referenced.
N54 never had in-forum photo hosting, so all my pictures were already hosted on docsmachine- nothing had to be reposted or moved.
The actual text
in some cases didn't make the swap, though, but that was because the build was part of a 'card dump' post or a "what happened this weekend" post, or I made a single build page out of three or four Guild posts that each only had one or two 'teaser' photos.
