First social network of Denmark

Arto was the first social media platform in Denmark, used by virtually everyone born in the years 83-93. It shut down on June 1st, 2016.
ArchiveTeam has got access to the site even after the shutdown, in order to finish the archiving process.
How can I help?
Running a Warrior
You can start up a Warrior and there select Arto. (If you don't really care what you are archiving, select ArchiveTeam's Choice instead, as at some points ArchiveTeam may priorize another project.)
Running the script manually
If you use Linux and you're a bit familiar with it, you can try running the script directly.
The instructions can be found at github.com/ArchiveTeam/arto-grab.

Donating to the Internet Archive
Content downloaded by the ArchiveTeam will be uploaded to the Internet Archive, where it will be stored and be available – hopefully – forever. However, storing it costs thousands of dollars in the long run. So, if you can afford, please consider donating to the Internet Archive, so that this piece of history can be kept for us all. http://archive.org/donate

Jchillerup's earlier efforts
- DONE: Enumerating all the users is done through polling for every profile. There are two scripts running currently. One is working upwards from a known ID while the other is working its way downwards.
- DONE: Write a script to downloading profiles and avatars, guestbooks, photos and videos. Downloaded 50,000 users in ~3.5 hours with 10 workers.
