As some of you may recall in the final days of yourwebapps, there were discussions of backups to preserve the site from being lost forever. In these harrowing times, a user called [removed by Admin) rose up and layed the foundations for a script that would download the entire board. I took that foundation and built upon it a backup of the nudity/humiliation related yourwebapps boards, including ASN, Blondies Storyboard, The Girls Spanking/Stripping Board, and the associated discussion boards. With Kinsey’s permission, I am now sharing it here.
File Sharing Link Removed by Administrator.
I did some minor editing of the pages, so all the links within a single thread should work, but the buttons to go back to the index or between boards do not work.
For the “recent” posts, IO-Story.zip, the files in the idx folder are the indices, which is probably the best way to find stories in this version, of the backup. (Note that the next page buttons will not work, you must manually change the url or open the file).
I also included [removed by Admin] earlier backup, which has a lot from before my backup starts, but does not have index files. I also added some really old stories that I figured out how to pull from the wayback machine, some from even before yourwebapps was yourwebapps. These are mostly incomplete, but there were some interesting things in there.
I also wanted to bring up the discussion to the community, and in particular, authors, about posting a more browse-able version. As the first part of organizing for my personal collection, I combined ALL the posts related to any particular story into folders, one for each story. This includes all the comments from readers, and multiple-thread stories are in one folder. There’s been no editing, linking between threads, or any other changes besides physically (digitally?) moving related files into a single folder. Each folder is labeled with the authors’ name and the title (approximately, I cut out a lot of articles/prepositions).
I’d be open to posting this version of the backup, as a single file. However, I want to hear from authors on their thoughts on this before doing so, as this could cross too far into the grey area between website backup and story reposting. There’s also some middle ground available, such as posting just the file-tree from this version to act as an index.
Hey everyone. I had a lapse in judgement by allowing an archive of IO’s site to be shared on this site. I apologize to the authors and community for my poor decision. I don’t want to allow anything that would make writers wary of sharing their work.
I’m leaving Yapu’s post up for posterity and so everyone can read the persuasive response made by BPClavel that explains why this site should not (and will not, going forward) allow the link to be shared.
I also have removed any posts detailing how to access the link. I’ll be creating an official rules page soon to set forth clear posting guidelines.
