Wait, what the heck. I sponsored this site under this account.

How did a user who hasn't logged in since 2007 "Raiderkenny" get cited for it? I don't think I clicked anonymous.

From the Archiveteam page, I think 1.7TB was mentioned for the main site and asset storage, and 180GB for MySQL information. So, around 2TB (to be fair, that's actually next to nothing now.)

However, I lack the internet connection or really the care to backup absolutely everything. Better to just backup the main highlights, and leave the bulk of the database for people that can handle it.

Now, if Max were planning to sell 2TB HDDs with all of YTMND loaded on it, that might be something to contemplate buying...

there was a torrent for a huge-ass geocities website collection, i'm sure the same could be done for ytmnd. some go grab a 4 TB HD and get downloadin!!

Haven't attempted this software, but it seems similar to what Archiveteam is doing with their planned crawling effort. I'll have to test some of these automated offline downloaders when I have the time so I can see if they leave anything off.

Is there going to be some sort of archive for YTMND if/when it goes down? I heard shit is gonna hit the fan soon and I am sad AF TBH, I was a long time lurker for years before finally making my account in 09...

NEDM can save YTMND? Fuk.

Well, the "archiveteam" project mention on both their website and on the Gizmodo pointed out that the entire database and file set are going to be backed up. The question just comes down to if we can actually access it or not.

If you have YTMNDs that are important, list it on this one and I'll add it to my collection of stuff. I'd also recommending backing it up yourself as well by saving the page and assets directly. You can recreate it without too much problem (HTML page, pictures, sound, HTML5 tags, and some javascript.)

Another part of the battle is to (and yes, I know I go on about this A LOT) open source YTMND's entire repository. This would allow the current version and prior versions to be accessible for us to extend as well. Moot open sourced his Canvas and DrawQuest code bases not that long ago, if YTMND goes down, I see no reason why YTMND should disappear completely.
