I visited this site after October 2017 and all of the old questions were gone. What happened?

As discussed at, the old version of this site ran on OSQA, which is no longer maintained and showing its age. As a result we migrated to Askbot, which is a newer, better-maintained fork of OSQA.

The old site has lots of valuable content, but it also has thousands upon thousands of bot-created spam accounts. We moved it to and have disabled account registration. Additionally, we've redirect links for old questions to osqa-ask.
