  • !!!WARNING!!! Geocities JP is Closing Down, Help Needed



    https://info-geocities.yahoo.co.jp/close/index.html
    Geocities.JP, the last geocites, is closing down on March 31st, 2019.

    1. What is Geocities?
    GeoCities is a website maker born in USA, 1994.

    2. What is Geocities JP?
    3 Years later, Geocities made into Japan in 1997.

    3. How it ended?
    Every Geocities, except Japan, ended its service in 2009.

    4. What should we do?
    If you found the sites that are affected, please post the links here and help us archive them before it's too late !

    Here are the affected sites that I found. (Some links may not be archived)

    Please check the original post for the lists

      sorry to see it happen, but that is the way of the net sometimes, if the creator is still active/alive, the content will be made on a new site builder, like the new Squarespace (think is the name, not sure) and the content will be available again.

      so here's hoping that those geocities users' content doesnt go away forever.

      Except a huge fraction of those author sites are frozen in their early-mid 2010's and seemingly abandoned. Geocities has been one of the biggest hosting sites for Japanese Mugen content and with the threat of extinction looming over them, who knows how much is about to get lost. The Geopocalypse, as I shall dub it.

      As a start, I have already cleaned out a few of those sites. It will be a painfully monumental task to salvage them all, the best we can do is reduce the damage as much as possible.
      @Dizzy could you verify for everyone that this news is legitimate?

      Yes it appears to be legitimate :
      https://info-geocities.yahoo.co.jp/close/index.html
      https://qz.com/1408120/yahoo-japan-is-shutting-down-its-website-hosting-service-geocities/

      Yahoo Japan announced today (Oct. 1) that it will shut down (link in Japanese) its GeoCities service in March 2019, 22 years after its launch. The company said in a statement that it was hard to encapsulate in one word the reason for the shut down, but that profitability and technological issues were primary factors. It added that it was full of “regret” for the fate of the immense amount of information that would be lost as a result of the service’s closure.
      This is terrible news, I'm going to promote this thread for the homepage news, and I hope our members can help avoid another huge data loss for the MUGEN community. In the past we collectively archived freett content before it got shut down, let's just hope we can do it again.

      Thank you, I am going to add you and Juu-bei7 to the moderators of this subforum, so you can help maintain the opening post.
      For now I think the priority is to collect the urls of all MUGEN websites hosted on Geocities JP. Then hopefully the community will collectively purge the list.

      You can exclude the "http" from the URL and it won't register as a link.

      There is no rule imposed on how much you can upload, so as long as you are respectful to the upload rules (posting in the right category, adding proper info, not posting repacks or duplicates) anything is fair game. Just don't upload like 30 stages in a row with the same name or people will complain about it. Personally I aim to keep it within 15 per day, as an active uploader.

      This is going to be huge. We have 5-4 months left (a fair amount of time granted, but still a ticking time bomb) and Hundreds or even thousands of sites to collect files from. No doubt, this is going to be a very important task for us all to join in. Just think of all the poor TouHous and JoJos that could be lost in the wild offline realm forever! These situations are why this very archive is so important. It's for major, unthinkable events like this.

      Thank you for the help, please feel free to help at any pace you want. In theory we still have a few months but it seems a number of these sites are already down, I wonder if this is related to the incoming closure. I have updated the opening post with the sites you covered completely. I hope other moderators can help maintain that list so that nobody waste their time.
