This page should contain, or directly link to, almost all ArchiveTeam archiving endavours, categorized.

  • Current projects: currently active, upcoming and recently finished grandiose ArchiveTeam projects. (Extract of the next two categories.)
  • Warrior projects: projects that utilize(d) ArchiveTeam's distributed archiving system.
  • Manual projects that need(ed) much more effort than just pushing a button.
  • Small projects: small-scale website archiving projects usually done by a single individual.
  • Early projects: first archiving endavours on the dawn of ArchiveTeam, in a format nobody is apparently able/dare to touch.

(The box on the top counts projects having dedicated wiki pages, those numbers aren't complete and far don't contain all projects mentioned in the sections below.)

If you know of a website in danger, let us know that on IRC. If it's a larger site, please also mention it on the Deathwatch page. And, after a decision is made on IRC, or if it doesn't need a decision, then, to help things kept documented and up to date, you are encouraged to add projects, or modify their status

The box on the top is generated automatically from projects' dedicated wiki pages, so shouldn't be touched.

Important: Contents of sections below are embedded from other pages, that is, don't edit the section, nor this page, but use the "Edit this list" link! (That opens the corresponding page for editing, and after editing, you'll be forwarded to the page containing only that list: don't worry, you didn't delete the others.)

Early projects

List of ArchiveTeam's early endavours, for historical interest, not edited.

Edit this list

Archiveteam1.png Historical content

This page or section is not really edited any more, probably because the project got abandoned, information is collected somewhere else in a different form etc.

However, this is a good and important record of ArchiveTeam's ancient times, thus must be preserved, but merging it into an other article would be difficult and/or some pieces of information are missing for a new form.

So feel free to read this, but it has probably nothing to be added now. However, if you resurrect the project or find a way to move this data to a fresh place, you can remove this template.

Look at Archive Team Collection at Internet Archive too

The following three sections have been moved here without modification from the old Projects page.

Finished projects

This is a list of completed projects which do not have their own page on this wiki.

See Category:Rescued Sites for projects which do have their own page on this wiki.

  • (mirror | 4.5MB archive) The infoAnarchy wiki was archived by Scott.
    • infoAnarchy was down for several months in the first part of 2011, but is back up as of May 2011. There is now very little content updating on the site. As of 2014-06-02, infoAnarchy has a "Revive blog & wiki" notice and a request for donations, suggesting it may not have a future. As of 2014-06-02, a "database is locked" message will be given to logged-in users.
    • If there are future updates to that archive, they may be found at
    • FIXME - This archive has non-relative links, requiring it to be in /infoanarchy. It needs to be redone or edited to have relative links.
    • FIXME - This archive does not include the complete history, which is absolutely essential in this case, as significant editing history exists.
  • (mirror) The Cyberpunk Project was archived by Scott
    • Note that this wiki does not allow the Russian TLD, so the URL will have to be edited to be visited.
    • Most pages haven't been changed since 2007. It hasn't been updated or changed since April 2010.
    • FIXME - this mirror is incomplete, or its links are pointing to the live website.
  • (archive) Kasabi's data was retrieved and uploaded to by Edsu.
  • (archive) FoxyTunes was archived by Start
    • (it's less than 1MB!)
  • (archive) Emulation Zone was archived by Start
    • FIXME - got interrupted by a crash and needs to be re-archived
