Also, on a quick side note, while the Wayback Machine is the most popular tool of the Internet Archive, it's always good to remember it isn't by far their only good feature. For example, the IA also has a video and public file hosting system which several major archiving initiatives such as the [[http://www.archiveteam.org/index.php?title=Main_Page Archive Team]] are ''big'' fans of. And, you know what, it wouldn't hurt for ''us'' at TV Tropes to use that feature more often too. You know, for putting up copies of important videos and archives of webcomics and such.

By the way, our very own Wiki/TVTropes wiki is represented and preserved in the Wayback Machine as well -- and quite nicely, in fact. So if you want to see the wiki in its earliest days, give it a spin. It also preserves articles that have been subjected to ExampleSectionectomy or [[Administrivia/PermanentRedLinkClub removed outright]]. [[http://wayback.archive.org/web/20100910084226*/http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/HomePage This link]] leads to the results for the TV Tropes homepage in the Wayback Machine; changing the URL posted to that of the article that interests you, you can access most of the site as it used to be. [[http://web.archive.org/web/20100628221425/http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/SoYeah It's also a good way to]] [[ShowDontTell show (and not tell)]] exactly ''why'' certain articles are now perma-redlinked.

The '''[[http://archive.org/web/web.php Wayback Machine]]''' is a section of the Internet Archive (and should '''''not''''' be confused with the Internet Archive itself). One of the most well-known and popular features of the IA, it allows people to see past versions of web pages -- in other words, it's the browser version of a TimeMachine.

It's not 100% reliable -- sometimes the particular page or image you remember most fondly will turn out to be missing from the Wayback archive. The site also follows the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robots_exclusion_standard Robots exclusion standard,]] so if your favorite website blocks the Wayback Machine from archiving it in its robots.txt file, then it and its content becomes inaccessible to the public (infuriatingly, if the domain is taken over by a cybersquatter who then implements a robots file, it will also block you from seeing the earlier, legitimate versions of the website). The IA also takes no chances with the law, and so all requests by the copyright owners to remove data from the Wayback Machine are immediately obeyed, so it's not necessarily the best archiving service to stymie an OrwellianEditor. A Canadian mirror [[http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2016/12/internet-freedom-wayback-machine-moving-copy-to-canada-donald-trump/ was recently set up]] due to [[https://techcrunch.com/2016/12/08/backing-up-the-history-of-the-internet-in-canada-to-save-it-from-trump/ fears of Internet censorship]] in the United States.
