It is always said "the internet doesn't forget" i.e. that content never truly disappears. But we all know that's not exactly true. Most will probably remember the old official forums on the official site. There were many posts by LFL officials, authors and other content creators on that forum that unfortunately were lost when they took the forums offline. Same (to a lesser extent) with the offical Star Wars Galaxies forums, SWG TCG forums and Clone Wars Adventures forums. I'm also not sure the forums for the Wizards of the Coast RPG still exist or whether the SW section on the Dark Horse forums will continue to exist after their SW license runs out.
So my question is: is there any effort to try to archive official statements regarding topics like canon, continuity, retcons, the EU, EU works and official products that are relevant for Wookieepedia and EU fans? There are lots of tweets, posts on forums, posts on facebook, etc.. that could be deleted at pretty much any time without much forwarning. And then the sources for statements in articles are no longer available to check the validity of those statements and relevant potential content is lost and can't be included in articles.
Unfortunately, sites like the Internet Archive were never really good at archiving whole forums and social media sites, where new posts are added almost constantly. Would a service like WebCite be an option? --188.8.131.52 21:54, May 12, 2014 (UTC)
I'm not on here anymore but just one more thing to add, if this is about Expanded Universe content PLEASE PRESERVE IT! I still stream here on EU content.-Boba fett 32 (talk) 19:51, May 17, 2014 (UTC)
