These crawls are part of an effort to archive pages as they are created and archive the pages that they refer to. That way, as the pages that are referenced are changed or taken from the web, a link to the version that was live when the page was written will be preserved.
Then the Internet Archive hopes that references to these archived pages will be put in place of a link that would be otherwise be broken, or a companion link to allow people to see what was originally intended by a page's authors.
This is a collection of web page captures from links added to, or changed on, Wikipedia pages. The idea is to bring a reliability to Wikipedia outlinks so that if the pages referenced by Wikipedia articles are changed, or go away, a reader can permanently find what was originally referred to.
There is a proposed redesign of the Community Portal on its talk page.
Free subscriptions to high-quality paywalled journals, newspaper archives, and online reference works are available for Wikipedia editors. For more information, see Wikipedia:TWL/Journals. NorthAmerica1000 11:29, 20 June 2014 (UTC)
Projects seeking help
Also consider posting WikiProject, Task Force, and Collaboration news at the Signpost's WikiProject Report page.
The Tip of The Day task force needs suggestions for new tips, help responding to suggestions, and copy-editors for approaching tips. Under five editors are barely keeping the project on its feet and any help would be geatly appreciated and barnstars may be awarded for excellent work.
Any user can become an administrator (AKA "sysop"). Admins have no special rights over the content of Wikipedia; they are like janitors. An admin can delete pages (in accordance with Wikipedia:Deletion policy), protect them (in accordance with Wikipedia:Protection policy), and block vandals (in accordance with Wikipedia:Blocking policy). All of these actions can be undone by any sysop. If you have been active on Wikipedia for some time (four to six months with at least 3000 edits is a good guideline), apply for adminship today if you want to help with the housekeeping.
