New official Embarcadero forums online

The sign-up/login is a bit prickly at first, so keep your login name / login email and password at hand, and request a password reset if your get into problems.

Have you registered at https://en.delphipraxis.net yet?

If you haven't migrated your daily Delphi browsing to Delphi-PRAXiS yet, you should. The reason is that this G+ Community will be closed for posting well in time before it ceases to exist.

Instructions for signing up can be found here:

Few can make a guitar sing like David Gilmour!

Google Takeout for the Delphi Developers community per 05 NOV 2018

The current takeout is rather meagre, and consists only of a list of 12606 posts, with the post URL and creation / update timestamps distributed over 13 json files.  

In the original takeout file, there were some VCF files with the member VCARDs, but I removed them as they are not essential.

Newest posts are in Posts-1.json, and oldest in Posts-13.json.

So - you read it correctly: The post itself is not in the takeout, nor are the comments to each post.

On the bright side:
The takeout format could enable a slow scrape on a per post basis, but there are certain tricks that needs to be applied - such as expanding the comment list to be complete, and I am not sure how sensitive the G+ servers are to scrapers.

Anyways, the .zip file with the .json data can be found here, if someone wants to have a go at doing a scrape.
