    lol well the point is so if anything happens to us that there are backups to make the rebuilding process easier, but if you want to carry an offline ED file with you 24/7 this is the way to do it.

    I hope you weren't thinking I was asking why I should download it because I already started it, before posting. There could be new articles that I could be interested in.

    I'm not sure when, but I'm thinking about contributing a lot more frequently.

    does this include images? because I'm pretty sure the text alone doesn't take up that much space. the text archive used to make this place was only 86 MB

    I'm sorry I had things to do.

    No, I was just making conversation.

    Text only at the moment. The images are like 60+ GB, the page will be updated when they are added.

    I don't think so, this is just to avoid another situation like when the old ED was replaced with Ohshiternet, and a certain fat fuck refused to give us the archives, which made ED a bitch in the ass to reconstruct

    Upvoted.

    I wonder what Alenonimo is thinking of this, since he is a frequent user of Reddit. Won't surprise me if he was one of the people who downvoted either.

    Because the archive used to build ED.ch wasn't even close to complete they didn't include user pages, policy pages, portals etc, plus we have almost a years worth of new articles/pages etc
