*Full webpages can also be saved in most browsers by hitting 'Ctrl + S' at any time. Saving a webpage will create an HTML file and a folder of images it will refer to.

*Use archive.today as the de-facto web archiving platform. It's fast, reliable, has favorable terms of use, and is based in Russia making it resilient to DMCA requests.
 
*Use sites like peeep.us and the Wayback Machine as redundancy for archived pages as these also have favorable terms.
 
*List archived links in wiki pages using the following format: (1)peeep.us, (2)archive.today, (3)Wayback Machine. Peeep.us' terms state that they "reserve the right to remove content which has not been accessed for a month" so listing it first ensures that the links are better protected from expiry.

==Other Archive Tips==
 
  
*After you use archive.is, download the archive (click the "download.zip" link in the top bar of the archive page)
+
</div>
*If you're downloading pdfs or word docs, do a google search for that document name and the person(s) / entity(ies) you're searching for. You want a google search result showing the keywords inside the document you downloaded. Archive and download that as well.
+
[[index.php?title=GamerGate_Wiki:General_disclaimer|Disclaimers]]</li></ul>
*Why? Because if you're downloading a pdf that contains peoples' names, and the pdf later disappears, they can say you doctored that pdf. If you have an archive of the google search, however, it will prove you downloaded it with the people's names already inside of the pdf.
 
*Last, keep a list and organize your evidence. Record link, archive link, zip file name, downloaded file name, google search link and google search archive.
 
  
'''Why do all this?'''
+
<ul>
 +
<li><div id="footer-copyrightico">
  
*If you're trying to build a case against a journalist and dev for a conflict of interest, for other ethical violations, or even for greater GG-related concerns (i.e. funding for sites / SJW non-profits, GJP, DiGRA, MS, Brookings, WestEd, etc) you need to have all your evidence archived and stored locally. Just assume that everything you've downloaded will disappear (yes, even archive.is … it's unlikely but why take the risk if you have a good find?).
 
*In fact, if you found a big violation w/ lots of evidence, periodically throw it on external storage; keep that storage offline and stored away. Zip it up and upload to mega.
 
*It's best to collect as much as you can using these archive tips before announcing what you've found. If you don't have time to sort through the evidence, collect ANYTHING that looks important first, then sort it out later or outsource to other diggers. Think of it like you're robbing a jewelry store. You smash and grab anything you see while you have the chance. Then you worry about sorting it out later.

Archiving Tools

From GamerGate Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

In order to preserve content on the web, many GamerGate supporters created tools leveraging http://archive.today, http://tweetsave.com, and http://archive.org. Below is a list of tools, if you don't see your browser supported by an extension, feel free to make one and update this wiki with it.

These extensions typically leverage one of the many archiving websites online. You can use these manually if you do not want to use the extensions.

How to Archive[[[index.php?title=Archiving_Tools&action=edit&section=1|edit]]]

For Personal Back-ups

  • Take screenshots of full web pages in Firefox/Palemoon by hitting 'Shift+ F2' and then typing "screenshot --fullpage".
  • Videos may be grabbed from Youtube and other places using plug-ins such as DownloadHelper/FlashGot and then converted to webm format using software such as Miro Video Converter. Videos may then be backed up on third-party sites such as Vimeo or DailyMotion.
  • Save anything significant that you come across and store it in a "Gamergate" folder on your hard drive. Back it up using Google Drive/Dropbox. Upload files to gitgud/the wiki.

For Non-Personal Back-ups

This is preferential as it's difficult to argue the case that third-party archives are tampered with in order to further gamergate's interests.

  • Use archive.today as the de-facto web archiving platform. It's fast, reliable, has favorable terms of use, and is based in Russia making it resilient to DMCA requests.
  • Use sites like peeep.us and the Wayback Machine as redundancy for archived pages as these also have favorable terms.
  • List archived links in wiki pages using the following format: (1)peeep.us, (2)archive.today, (3)Wayback Machine. Peeep.us' terms state that they "reserve the right to remove content which has not been accessed for a month" so listing it first ensures that the links are better protected from expiry.
