Is there a different threshold for access to the archives or is that only available to members who had access to it when it was active?

Thank you

Only people who had an account on the old forum have access to it.

Will it remain that way?

Yes. Registering for the old forum is no longer an option.

ETA: It was never an option; registration on the old forum was closed when the forum moved.

Would there be any reason other than nostalgia to want to read the old forum and its long gone HITS.

Yep. I think I used to lurk on that forum, but I can't be sure. I used to search for information on some requesters, and I would often find what I was looking for on a site for turkers. Tips about working for certain requesters were very helpful.

Access to the archives was one of the reasons I signed up. I read the rules and many suggested threads, and can't believe I missed that one. Thanks again to moffett for posting this thread!
