Maybe we should tell each other what sites we have archived on ours boxes ? I just started on . Joseph 12/01/09 5:20pm

i see that you noticed this, but each site page has a place for you to put your sig if you are working on it :) --Ross 02:23, 13 January 2009 (UTC)

Logo ideas

Some logo/banner ideas I came up with when I had a bit of spare time. I'd appreciate it if people let me know what they think. --Josef K.

Large logo (note 80s pseudo-neon text
Small Logo
Logo with text only

NICE --Ross 20:17, 17 January 2009 (UTC)

Added as our corner logo. --Jscott 23:51, 17 January 2009 (UTC)


I can't edit this page. The "C" in "GeoCities" needs to be capitalized. --Jimhabegger 07:04, 7 December 2009 (UTC)

What and where

IMPORTANT!!! Several things should be made clear on the main page for the readers of this site:

  • a. Price: What will be done with the archived files? Will they be available for free to the public, or will there be a fee for it?
  • b. UX: What is the user interface for retrieving the information?
  • c. Availability: Is the info available now, or will it be so in the future?

I reached here when googling (or yahooing) for 'Archive Geocities'. I believe most other will do so too.

My pages were
I had:

  • ynventor (about my early inventions 10 years ago),
  • beair (about an open school system in Israel)
  • PRT webzine (all about alternative transportation) Pashute 14:35, 31 January 2010 (UTC)

Formatting awkwardness

FYI, when you view the front page in a browser window that's not super-wide (1120px or more), the "History is our Future" box looks really awkward. The text gets smushed into a tiny, really, long column next to the image. An admin should really change the layout to one column, with the image above the text. --Qwerty0 12:55, 5 April 2012 (EDT)

Now better? Emijrp 07:32, 6 April 2012 (EDT)

Updating "Ended Projects" Section

The "Ended Projects" section of the main page (bottom right) has several sub-bullets intended to act as quick links to archives. As of now, they are stubs. The ArchiveTeam Warrior page has links for archives to most of them. They are:

As well, the FortuneCity bullet is red-linked atm, since the actual page at FortuneCity that documented the archiving efforts has no space in its title.


I really think that the main page should have a constantly up to date "[how to] help us!" section in the most prominent place possible. Probably, right above or below the "Archive time" logo, a well visible box should atttract people to ArchiveTeam Warrior instructions for joining the constant efforts. Currently, unless one follows very closely the highly noisy IRC and Twitter chats, it's very hard to keep track of ongoing projects; the mailing list is not used at all. Our best chances are probably in building a big base of people who constantly run warrior instances with no need to worry about them. --Nemo 07:49, 12 June 2013 (EDT)
