You can make your own XML article text backups using the Wikiteam Download Scripts. Just upload them to the Internet Archive, and post the link at the ArchiveTeam Wiki. Iruel 23:50, 19 February 2015 (EST)

Warning: For now, only make XML (full page text) backups. These are just a few hundred megabytes. ED's current image collection is over 2 Terabytes in size and growing, so image backups have to be done by the admins.

Image archives?

The page says there will be monthly archives released, but only lists the archives link for February. Is there still a plan to do the archives monthly?--CrackRabbit 21:57, 12 September 2012 (EDT)

Is there a chance of an archive of all the images on ED(minus Special:UnusedFiles?--Desu exploitable.png Talk to me|Contribs 18:06, 28 April 2013 (EDT)

There are some ED archive torrents floating around, which include unused files, but most of them are a few years out of date...and all of them are freakin HUUUUUGE, we're talkin like ten gigs per. I've got my own personal archive of the entire site (and currently up to date), but again, it's enormously gigantor and on my shit connection it would take like a MONTH just to upload it anywhere ONCE. Same problem with the whole of my Data Archive:

It's over TWO TERABYTES in size (image material only) and contains around THREE MILLION files. Uploading it anywhere online is simply completely out of the question.

Sep '13 archives pls?

Can we get a new release pls?--Desu exploitable.png Talk to me|Contribs 12:01, 27 September 2013 (EDT)

Yeah, I think a more recent site dump would be a good idea; what with the recent talk of ED being low on the monies, and possibly dying, again, by xmas. Granted I think we'll pull through, but better to air on the side of caution than to be caught with our pants down. BakaRed 20:38, 29 October 2013 (EDT)

can we get a new archive release?

just would like to have a new one in case anything happens to ed, and since there hasn't been a new one since last february.

Can we please get a new archive?

It has been a long while since you guys have released an ED archive. I like this site and I would love to have a copy of all those lulzy articles for the days I or you go off the internet. I've tried the Special:Export feature but it looks like it doesn't export all the pages for some reason. Blau 01:50, 29 November 2014 (EST)
