YTMND is a humour website featuring user-created web pages in the form of a tiled image and an audio track. The site makes use of flash to load the images and play the audio. It was launched in 2001 and contains lots of significant online culture and history.

The owner, Max Goldberg, has stated that it is no longer cost-effective to host the website and it will eventually be taken offline, and he has reached out to Archive Team to preserve it.

Archiving

The owner has kindly offered to give us the (anonymized) database and the content. The storage cost is about 1.7TB for the content, and the MySQL database is about 180GB.

A Warrior job to scrape the site is also planned.

Infos

  • Created New 'site' and it's ID is 1008765 : http://picard.ytmn d.com/info/1008765/json
  • That URL can be scraped starting with the ID 1 and going well past the number above.
  • The site's profile can be found at http://ytmnd.com/sites/1008765/profile
  • The "Domain" which is in the json data is the subdomain off of ytmn d.com which could be put in a list and then crawled for WARCing purposes.
  • An {"error":"site not found"} is returned for the domain if the site does not exist with that ID: http://picard.ytmn d.com/info/1008765333/json
  • Attempting to access a nonexistent domain will result in being redirected to http://mannotfounddog.ytmn d.com/ while still returning a status code of 200
