Warrior-based projects

Current Running Warrior Project: Webs
  • Yahoo! Answers: This website, bought by Verizon, is the largest Q&A repository on the internet, but its answers to users' questions will be discarded on May 4, 2021. "What is Yahoo! Answers?" IRC Channel #noanswers (on hackint).
  • 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).
  • 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. Now focused on manually archiving course data. 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.
