CS:GO Lounge is a site which numerous Counter-Strike: Global Offensive players list items they want to trade for something else, similar to the likes of Craigslist. It also provides item betting on select pro matches, the latter of which presumably makes up a significant part of its traffic.

Vital signs

Not terribly likely to go away due to it being a household name in the CS:GO community, unless Valve were to cave to calls from some to crack down on the item betting part of the site. UPDATE: THEY DID: https://store.steampowered.com/news/22883/

As a result of Valve's crackdown, both Lounge sites' betting areas have since shifted to being a general pro match tracker, but without the betting.

URL Structure

Profiles: 64-bit Steam ID used, such as "profile?id=76561198040048374".

Trades: increments by 1 for each new trade made, such as "trade?t=90024860". Older trades will instead have "oldtrade?t=<xyz>", this currently encompasses everything under 40000000, anything that is 40000000 and above uses "trade?t=<xyz>".

Match pages: increments by 1 for each new match posted, such as "match?m=5962". Older matches will instead have "oldmatch?m=<xyz>" like trades, currently encompasses 2600 and under, everything 2601 and over uses "match?m=<xyz>".

A theoretical pain point in archiving would be handling comments on the match pages, which are handled through Disqus. Otherwise, ArchiveBot should be able to easily chew down on it.
