I've got some rather bad news. There have been some radical changes at pastebin.com, and transcendence.pastebin.com is no more.
After reading their announcement regarding the changes:
I sent them an email asking if anything could be done so that we could continue to use the pastebin as a community resource, and recover our old pastes.
I received two emails from them. Since the second email quotes the first and my original email, I will just paste the second email here:
Any comments/suggestions are welcome, as this affects anyone in the modding community that uses it, even for one question.If you get an account for your group, you can: http://pastebin.com/paste_finder.php there type in transcendence and import all those pastes to your own pastebin.

Thank you for your email.
You can still post privately, if you are not a member, but you will not be able to edit/delete your pastes, or put store it in a list of somekind.
For you team you could buy a PRO account. You can all use that account at the same time, and paste in your private pastebin that nobody else but your team can see. All pastes set to private in your pastebin will then only show up for people you allow access to. This could be perfect for what you need. Further more, you get a lot of other options that normally you wouldnt get.http://pastebin.com/pro
Hope this helps.

I am with a group of modders who work on a game called Transcendence. We had a subdomain on pastebin so that anyone who came to our group with a question about modding could be directed to paste their code on that transcendence.pastebin.com and we could all help them with their code problem. We could also sort through past Transcendence pastes and see if someone had the same question we had.
So, now with the new login system, it appears that this service has become useless, as all we can do without an account is paste publicly, which defeats the purpose of having all Transcendence pastes in one location. To further complicate things, the new requrement for an account and login does not seem to allow this same collaborative atmosphere, as each person who wants to paste would need to have an account (unless I'm missing something in what you said in your description of the changes). There is no way now that one of us can look through all Transcendence-related pastes to see what was done, as everything is compartmentalized into accounts.
Also, you speak of being able to recover subdomain pastes, how would this work? Would each person who pasted need to create an account, then hope that he could recover the pastes he did using the same ID, while all anonymous pastes are lost? Or, is there a way we can create some common account and transfer all pastes made to that subdomain to that new account?
Do you have a solution for us, or do we need to find another site to use for collaboration?
