Blogs were probably lost long ago. Not sure which back end techniques might have worked during the Viacom era, but they probably went the way of the dodo when the site moved onto Defy's back-end around this time last year. I remember the old forums worked for a while during the transition, but when they stopped working, I imagine everything on Viacom's end got shut off, and none of that would have been transferred to Defy or IGN.
