The natural reaction of a lolcow is deleting fucking everything when they get found out. The responsibility of a Kiwi is to record fucking everything before that happens. archive.li creates a full, living backup of a website with all its resources. (example) full page screen capture is a fucking wonderful Chrome extension that automatically caps, records, compiles, and sends you a lossless PNG of exactly what you see. It doesn't interact with anything on the page and takes only a second to use. (example) FireFox now has this built in using the right-click context menu and it is extremely useful, but do not hotlink content from the firefoxusercontent domain. Download it and re-upload it, or use the clipboard option to paste it directly into your post. If you're hosting files, it is always a better idea to mixtape.moe is the better alternative to Imgur. Mega is another good file host. If your file is very large or very important, PM me or email me at email@example.com and I will archive it to https://kiwifarms.net/archive This is a standard of archive quality we're using on the https://lolcow.wiki, but it's good if everyone does it. Links to 3rd party websites are rarely a good idea unless you're actually trying to show people the URL, and not its content. Do not, however, rely on social media embeds or direct links. Take screenshots and host them elsewhere, preferably directly to the site. Imgur is not safe. Twitter content belongs to their author and simply embedding it won't always work, so take screenshots. Facebook URLs include a token that links back to your account. Save w/ different filename or screenshot!!! If you use GNU/Linux, the tool "youtube-dl" is basically god's gift to mankind and the single most useful utility in the whole fucking world. It's available on most distros, including FreeBSD. If you know how to use the Windows command prompt, you can use it on Windows as well. Windows users and dummies wanting to save YouTube / other video streaming content should look into youtube-dl-gui. Yes, even YOU can archive valuable, fleeting content! I will help you host it if it's a big file.
