Backup/Archival of UT99.org

Postby Dizzy » Tue Sep 11, 2018 3:01 am

After seeing this thread on Reddit today, I'm curious to ask if UT99.org has a frequent backup/archival process in place?

There is so much valuable information on this forum; if it should become unavailable for whatever reason, is that information stored somewhere accessible to those who need it in the future?

For what it's worth I'm happy to offer storage/archival webspace.

Do you know which pages it doesn't crawl (and why)?

It would be great to get a community-accessible backup of the entire forum somewhere, in case the worst should happen. Don't want to end up like https://wiki.beyondunreal.com/ (which is offline as I type this).

What you also can do is to download the whole content of this forum and uploaded somwhere else, i just dont know of the whole content of this website is saved on the wayback machine.
What you can do is downloading a programm for downloading the whole content, there must be a good program to fix this.You can also save all pages with making pdf files from the entire website ,one sad thing is that there are maby more then 1000 pages to save them to pdf.With the convert button from adobe acrobat, you can save all pages from them and in a good container pdf format.One thing i know its going tobe a long time when you finished with this project, or devided work with more people. :sleep:
