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.

Revision as of 05:29, 21 February 2013

Maybe we should tell each other what sites we have archived on ours boxes ? I just started on http://ficlets.com/ . 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)

Corrections

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.
Thanks.

My pages were geocities.com/pashute1.
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)

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:
