Data[how to use] archiveteam_arto

Arto was the first social media platform in Denmark, used by virtually everyone born in the years 83-93. It shut down on June 1st, 2016.

ArchiveTeam got access to the site for one more month,[1] and successfully saved everything.

Jchillerup's earlier efforts

  • DONE: Enumerating all the users is done through polling for every profile. There are two scripts running currently. One is working upwards from a known ID while the other is working its way downwards.
  • DONE: Write a script to downloading profiles and avatars, guestbooks, photos and videos. Downloaded 50,000 users in ~3.5 hours with 10 workers.

The download is chugging along fine on my (Jchillerup (talk)) server. Projected total size around 1TB.


Archive Team downloaded more than 6 million profiles, 4.1 terabytes in size. The bulk archive files can be found in the archiveteam_arto collection, and the URLs in the Wayback Machine.
