I was a part of a discourse based forum site for 3.5 years and the owners of the site decided to pull the plug of everything because they don’t want to keep paying to host & discourse anymore. Forum had 7000+ users and even though owners don’t want to pay, we said we want to save the forum somehow. We offered paying the fee ourselves, we offered migrating forum to less costly forum template but they don’t want to deal with the forum anymore, so no luck. We(as ordinary users) at least want to somehow save all the posts we created in this 3.5 years but all we can do is exporting our own posts, which is not enough for most of us. Is there a way to backup/export everything from a discourse based site without admin privileges? Thank you so much.
Ps. We have 2 days before they close the site, and the site is so valuable to us. I even have friends who met in that site and married afterwards. Any help appreciated.
