Amplicate was a site that stored over 450,000,000 love and hate opinions from thousands of people. There was no official or third-party way to backup your opinions, other than painstakingly copying them into text files.
Some of Amplicate's pages can be retrieved via the Wayback Machine (warning, big page.)
On February 26, 2013, Amplicate announced that it was "evolving" and was "merging efforts with a complimentary project".
Their server started giving 502 errors shortly after the shutdown announcement. On February 18, 2014, Amplicate.com went back up and stayed accessible for several months. However the "Amplicate is evolving." banner was also still up and all of their social media accounts were (and still are) quiet. As of June 27, 2014, amplicate.com (IP address 188.8.131.52) doesn't resolve.
