I have been thinking about whether we ought to ask the UK Web Archiving Consortium if they would like to archive this wiki. As an example of a site relating to self-publishing and print-on-demand I figure that it is the sort of site which they might well be interested in; it's also an example of a Web 2.0 site, which they are also keen on archiving. This would ensure that the site would be archived on a regular basis and that the archived versions would be accessible to the public for decades, or even centuries, to come. As we are at the forefront of what is undoubtedly to be a publishing revolution it would seem like a good idea. I would, though, need the consent of all of the members here who actually have any content on their own wiki pages. I can add a note to the disclaimer message stating that the wiki is so archived and then it would be covered for any new members joining. I'll try to send personal messages to those members with actual page content here individually to see if this is ok. The content would remain the copyright of the individual creators but would obviously be given some form of immortality. I was contacted just over a year ago by the British Library (one of the UKWAC partners) who wanted to archive my own site for the future, so I am familiar with the process. I feel that it's worth considering, so let me know what you think. Of course they may not choose to accept the wiki for archiving but it would be worth a try. I may also need permission from Wikidot, but that bridge will be crossed if and when the members here approve. I shouldn't imagine that that would be a problem.
