Content Quality

Quality control is essential to our platform. Websites are being browsed for historical accuracy, and they are being used as a trustworthy resource. Our users deserve an unprecedented experience while using the platform, and we must make sure our platform relays a clear assurance to our end users that content on our platform is safe and easy to browse. This is why we must try our best to keep the quality of content distributed on the service at a reasonably high level.

Restoring Websites

Contributors who work on websites, should understand, that publishing broken websites cannot be tolerated. It is difficult to exactly define what a broken website is, but the general rule of thumb is that the web site should not contain more than 20% references to missing content, such as broken images, or broken links. The main page (typically index.html on the root of the domain) should not contain any broken links or broken images. If the website you are archiving is otherwise good, you may want to recreate the missing content using Google image search, and/or other sources. If you have any concerns about the website you are publishing, or if you would like to hear suggestions how to improve a website before publishing it, we welcome you to ask us on Discord. We are there to help! Exceptionally well restored websites may be featured on our website, or social media platforms.

Prohibited Websites

Websites that contain unauthorized distribution of copyrighted software, such as warez sites, and web sites that spread malware such as viruses, browser hijackers, spyware, and adware (such as BonziBuddy) are strictly prohibited. Websites containing adult content, such as nudity, are out of scope on our platform. Please note that we are a family friendly service.


All activity, including browsing web sites, logon attempts and all edits are logged across the platforms. Any malicious activity, including vandalism and improper use of the service, is reported, and continued misuse will lead to a ban to the platform, and serious cases will be reported to the authorities. These measures are in place to protect the integrity of the service, as well as the content being distributed on the platform.

Please contact the Administrators to report disputes or problems with the content distributed on the site. Use the links below to get in touch. You may also reach out by email using the contact information here.
