Warrior-based projects

Current Running Warrior Project: Reddit
  • Webs: Vistaprint is killing off the Freewebs you knew from the 2000s on March 31, 2021, unless you pay up. IRC Channel #webbed (on hackint).
  • Niconico metadata: Erasing comments linked to deleted videos sometime this spring. IRC Channel #niconino (on hackint).
  • URLTeam: URL shorteners were a fucking awful idea. IRC Channel #urlteam (on hackint).

Newer projects utilize wget-at which the existing Warrior virtual appliance isn't able to run. To be able to run these projects, use a Docker container. See Running Archive Team Projects with Docker for instructions.
