How to back up stories or threads you care about?

A: You go to the topic/thread you want to copy and click the print button, save that page, all images are links instead of visible, but all text is readable and all in one big blob.

Personally myself I set up a Google document page and copy whatever I want to save that way. Bid advantage you can always add new material at any time!
When I get around to it, I'll write

I wouldn't recommend using Google Drive/Docs. Google has been known for flagging files and blocking them. I recommend using ProtonDrive instead. Even though you can't update stories that way, unless you upload a new file. Another one I recommend is Zoho Docs, way better than Google and allows you to edit.

I just copy/paste them and save them as drafts in my email. Works fine for me. I have 11 year old drafts in there.

I save all my stories ( completed and non-completed) on an external hard drive.

I copy/paste them in a Word document. From there, it's simple to republish on another site. I also copy/paste from one site to another when the rules are the same. I did that a lot between here and RapeCage. Now I do this with my favorite stories from here to TheBlackVan. The readership on TBV is very small, but it's nice to have an extra back-up. Ravishu is still my favorite place to write and post.

I started out here in 2020 so it feels a bit like home. I often smile and think what my female coworkers would think if they knew the kind of texts I post here.

In regards to backup, if you want to keep really sensitive material out of prying eyes, I'd suggest you to create a encrypted volume with VeraCrypt. It's an extra step if you want to save or read from it, but it's better than being caught with sensitive material. If you lock it with a strong password, I don't believe anyone can crack it.

Hey friends. & all,


I am thrilled that effort has been made to create some for of archive with material.  I've got one thought off top of my head, maybe somebody else is clever enough to move the idea forward. 
Since multiple people seem willing to spend time to prevent the RU gems from vanishing- is any way to make effort COLLECTIVE? as in a REPOSITORY that is set up maybe like a database or I guess forum and format dependent...  Clearly I have yet to think this thru, but I will spit the thought out there for what it's worth.
Also good to jump back into here, I missed this place.  Somehow I got bent out of shape and took my leave but I like the community, only a few I suppose.  Anyway more power to you!  Maybe anpther idea would be to list what all had been downloaded or saved into some format by a user, if they might be willing to share it as well.  I am willing to consider adding effort worthy cause to save good writing from censurship crackdowns and poor web hosts....


Best wishes,

To do so, we would need a few things:
1. An archival platform. We could use a cloud platform for such a thing, but it comes with either a cost or a risk. Cost because good and private cloud platforms are not free. And risk because most of them are bought by the censors, thus endangering our initiative. A real private cloud like Skiff would work.
2. A listing page. How are we going to list the stories? We can use a calc spreadsheet shared in the cloud(skiff can be a way). Or a wiki like Fembot Wiki, there are a few wiki systems that can be used for listings.
3. We can risk using a hosting like Epik, which is miles better than TMD. Epik has way more freedom than any other known hosting in regards to content. Seems like DreamHost is another option for hosting(Fembot Wiki's host).

In case of a Calc spreadsheet, each author creates their own spreadsheet and shares the link.

I am pretty new to the site,  so forgive me if this is obvious. I've been wondering, is there a way to "favorite" stories you've loved on/within the site to be able to find them again easily?
