'''STARWARS.YAHOO.COM''' was a Star Wars themed user site, containing forums, user pages, and general movie information. Announced as a beta in October of 2007, it successfully suckered many users into posting, uploading, and sharing information on it before it was summarily shut off by Yahoo with a 30 day notice in December of 2009. On Dec 15, 2009, Yahoo shut the site down completely and redirected all queries to starwars.com.

''Archive Team'' sprung into action and saved 99.9% of /users/, /forums/, /links/, and a smaller percentage of the other content on the site. (Most of the general star wars information was duplicated on starwars.com anyway - we focused our efforts on user-generated content.)

Problems encountered:
 
* Yahoo issues an error 999 after about 30 minutes of fetching from a certain IP.  We used two approaches to get around this.
 
** TOR (slow as molasses, but worked) - collected using httrack
 
** multiple IPs (fast, but needs large IP resources) - collected using wget
