[ Question ]

Can I archive content from lesswrong.com on the wayback machine (internet archive, archive.org) ?

There are some great information on lesswrong.com (LW) that seems to be available publicly (I can access it in an incognito chrome window) and I would like to increase the chances of this information surviving for a long time.

When I try saving a LW page it looks like it does not render correctly on the wayback machine. Ex: https://web.archive.org/web/20200624170623/https://www.lesswrong.com/s/FrqfoG3LJeCZs96Ym/p/8qccXytpkEhEAkjjM

I opened a github issue on LW's repo since I assume it is an issue with the source code of LW. The EA forum seems to have the same issue and it looks like the EA forum's repo is a fork of lesswrong's repo. I am also writing here since it might have more visibility for non tech people.

Given the complexity of LW2, by design, you'll probably have better luck using the https://www.greaterwrong.com/ mirror.
