== 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.

== Corrections ==
 
 
 
I can't edit this page. The "C" in "GeoCities" needs to be capitalized. --[[User:Jimhabegger|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: <br>
 
*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. <br>
 
Thanks.
 
 
 
My pages were geocities.com/pashute1. <br>
 
I had:
 
* ynventor  (about my early inventions 10 years ago),
 
* beair (about an open school system in Israel)
 
* PRT webzine (all about alternative transportation) [[User:Pashute|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.

== 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:
 
 
 
* [[MobileMe]] - Apple's file storage and sharing service, currently hosting over 200 terabytes of data, shut down on June 30, 2012.
 
** [http://archive.org/details/archiveteam-mobileme-hero archive] [http://archive.org/details/archiveteam-mobileme-index index] [http://archive.org/download/archiveteam-mobileme-index/mobileme-20120817.html user lookup]
 
* [[Tabblo]] - A site where users told stories with pictures. Closed May 30, 2012.
 
** [http://archive.org/details/tabblo-archive archive] [http://archive.org/download/test-memac-index-test/tabblo.html user lookup]
 
* [[FanFiction.Net]] - Around 7 million fan-fiction stories hosted on what may be the largest site of its kind in the world. They're not shutting down but Archiveteam has a copy "just in case".
 
** No official collection at archive.org yet. Raw WARCs available at [http://archive.org/search.php?query=collection%3A%22archiveteam%22%20AND%20%28fanfiction%29 this search query] on archive.org.
 
* [[Geocities]] - We archived most of geocities mother fuckers!
 
** [http://thepiratebay.org/torrent/6353395/Geocities_-_The_PATCHED_Torrent Geocities - The PATCHED Torrent] as well as [http://archive.org/details/archiveteam-geocities archive.org] listings.
 
* [[FortuneCity]] - It may be gone but we've still got it
 
** [http://archive.org/details/archiveteam-fortunecity archive] [http://archive.org/download/test-memac-index-test/fortunecity.html user lookup]
 
 
 
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.
 
 
 
== Recruitment ==
 
 
 
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. --[[User:Nemo_bis|Nemo]] 07:49, 12 June 2013 (EDT)
 
 
 
:I have a feeling that it may be the best to have the banner above the two main column boxes. I've started a page 'fork' over on [[User:GLaDOS/adventuretime]]. --[[User:GLaDOS|GLaDOS]] 07:57, 12 June 2013 (EDT)
 
 
 
== Site deaths ==
 
 
 
Case maintains this list of http://indiewebcamp.com/site-deaths  (and prospective site deaths).  A useful list to check periodically.
 
 
 
== Quotes on main page ==
 
 
 
Maybe the quotes section could have monthly updates? Topics for the quotes could be about web history, link rot, preservation, service shutdown, etc. An example:
 
 
 
* ''"The loss of Twitpic will scoop out and destroy a massive, massive amount of twitter history. Even @librarycongress doesn't have this."''
 
'''''ArchiveTeam Twitter Feed'''''
