Since its from pre-xenforo there is a chance it isn't here, since a lot of stuff just got wiped away during the forum software switch in 2013. However usually deleted posts / threads are visible to mods that moderate that forum, so you could ask a wifi mod to check I guess.Fair enough.
Another question: is it possible to recover purged/deleted threads on Smogon?
I used to have a thread in the Wi-Fi forums (I'm talking 5 years ago) but it seems to have been deleted. Is there a back-up anywhere?
