I like this site a lot, but I worry that at some point, as with all things in life, it will come to an end. Is there a way to take a back up of the entire site and download it, or at least all the questions/answers my account asked?

    $\begingroup$ Good question. The mathematics on this site is far too precious for humanity to ever lose. $\endgroup$ Commented Jul 29, 2016 at 15:26

1 Answer 1

  1. Every day, I think about that.
  2. I am planning to take 'some' of my answers and move them to some personal blog or to my computer.
  3. However, I have around 2000 answers and I don't like all of them but some of them took me a few days to polish and those are the ones I want to retrieve.
  4. I am thinking in a 'manual process' but it looks cumbersome.

By the way, sometimes ago I tried to retrieve my tweets ( in Twitter ). They told me they have to prepare a kind of a zip. I didn't receive any thing and they never contacted me anymore. I guess it goes along your initial idea.

  • $\begingroup$ This doesn't look like an answer to the question. It seems like the discussion of the question stops at "every day I think about this." Did you have an actual approach in mind? $\endgroup$
