You might want to add this to the Archive. It is Donkey Kong Country GBA's official European site: http://www.mediafire.com/download/y3ydjsg259a3rw3. For more backups (mainly the file contents), check out my other archives here: http://www.dkc-atlas.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=26&t=1861. We just have to be careful, for sites like NoE's are susceptible to shutting down.

I hope I helped the Archive Team! :) Archive Maniac 11:17, 12 February 2014 (EST)

Excuse me, but do you know how I could manually run the Warrior's python scripts? It seems that items download a lot faster with it. Could you please teach me? I also do need help on how to upload the downloaded wikis with "uploader.py". If you could help me with these two problems, I'd much appreciate it. Thanks.

I have an idea. How's about we can contribute sites to the Archive Team, whether or not it has been shut down. That way, we have a backup. Also, the best way to back up your files is via (re)writable DVDs and/or CDs. Also, how do you submit your collections to Archive Team? Archive Maniac 14:56, 18 March 2014 (EDT)

Suggestion: Allowing People to Submit Sites to the Archiveteam

I have a suggestion: why don't we allow users to submit sites to the ArchiveTeam on the Internet Archive (archive.org). I have already done an example site here: https://archive.org/details/site-wwwangelfirecomazdixieden. Just like WikiTeam uses "dumpgenerator.py", I think that users should use wget for downloading websites. Beginners could use HTTrack if they desire.

I have also set some conventional rules, based on those of the WikiTeam's:

  1. The collection's title should have a page title following this format: "Website - SITENAMEGOESHERE".
  2. The URL identifier should have this format: "site-SITEURLGOESHERE". I believe it should exclude the site URL's periods and "http://" from the title, but I think "www" should be kept, as some have it in their URLs, while others don't (e.g. if a site's name is http://www.nintendo.co.jp, it should have an identifier of "site-wwwnintendocojp".
  3. Users should enter the keywords "archiveteam" and "web" (maybe the ArchiveTeam can create a website submission collection with its own keyword).
  4. Users should compress the folder the site was downloaded in as a 7z file. It should be named in this format: SITENAMENOPERIODS-YYYYMMDD.

I hope you like this idea. :) Archive Maniac 14:05, 12 April 2014 (EDT)

I can't seem to use the ArchiveBot. I don't have the necessary permissions... And how do I upload sites to the Internet Archive? Do I do it a different way or the same way? :/ Archive Maniac 21:31, 13 April 2014 (EDT)

Wpull EXE File

Will there ever be an EXE/Windows version of wpull? I'd appreciate it if there will be. I also messaged Nemo bis about the unarchived sites of swipnet.se. I was hoping you can do something about this. Thanks. Archive Maniac 11:11, 7 August 2014 (EDT)

Yahoo Stinks -- Look at What They Are Going to Shut Down Now...

Because you're the programmer here, I thought I might tell you that http://dir.yahoo.com (Yahoo Directory!) is shutting down on December 31, 2014. It's a shame it's on the month and date that my IRC username states. *_* But here's the proof: news article.

Yahoo sucks. They're nuking their first service. They buy out stuff and completely destroy it all.

Oh yeah, and I'm sorry for some of my trolling. Archive Maniac 13:31, 19 October 2014 (EDT)

Wikiadownloader.py problem

Hi, I have a problem with the Wikia downloader script (Link). When the program is expected to open wikia.com, it recognizes it as a directory:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "wikiadownloader.py", line 41, in <module>
    f = open('wikia.com', 'r')
IOError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 'wikia.com'

Please fix this bug. Me and other Windows users will like it if you do. Archive Maniac 21:04, 25 November 2014 (EST)
