Archive Team recruiting

Warrior-based projects

Current Running Warrior Project: Webs
  • Webs: Vistaprint is killing off the Freewebs you knew from the 2000s on March 31 June 30, 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).
  • Periscope: Another Twitter acquisition, another shutdown. This time, its live-streamer gets to join Vine in the bin at the end of March. IRC Channel #microscope (on hackint).
  • Super Mario Maker Bookmark: Nintendo making discovery of courses far more difficult. IRC Channel #nintendone (on hackint).
  • URLTeam: URL shorteners were a fucking awful idea. IRC Channel #urlteam (on hackint).

An updated Warrior virtual appliance (v3.2) is now available with better support for newer projects that utilize wget-at, but some projects may still leave you with a blank "Current project" page when selected. To be able to run these projects, use a Docker container. See Running Archive Team Projects with Docker for instructions.

Scripts only

Manual projects

  • 2019-2020 coronavirus outbreak: Documenting and preserving data, events, and impacts of the virus on society. IRC Channel #coronarchive (on hackint)
  • ArchiveBot: For those with lots of disk space, bandwidth and long-term commitment. IRC Channel #archivebot (on hackint).
  • WikiTeam: Saving wikis dumps (XML). And their external links for the Wayback Machine (WARC) as well as exporting MediaWiki databases. Permanent effort, everyone can help (you choose the size of your downloads). IRC Channel #wikiteam (on hackint).
  • MP3.com: Digging through the WayBack Machine's archives to build a database of all the DAM CDs made available through the site.

Upcoming & proposed projects

Recently finished projects

  • Halo: Back to finishing off unfinished business before Bungie kills the original website on February 9, 2021. IRC Channel #yolohalo (on hackint).
  • Endomondo: GPS workout tracker with optional social networking features, shutting down 2020-12-31. IRC Channel #findelmundo (on hackint).
  • .eu domains: The Brexit deal is done, and with that comes a purge of UK-based sites no longer eligible to use the .EU domain as of 2021. IRC Channel #noteurdomain (on hackint).
  • Flash domains: An effort to preserve what remains of a storied legacy of websites hosting Adobe Flash Player content before the web industry takes it behind the shed. IRC Channel #flashbang (on hackint).
