Jottings On Adding Archive.org Links Automatically
@ton I've had a few exchanges with IA over the "Save page now" URL and automated submission.
They actively endorse its use in this way.
I do susepct there's a prospect for abuse (I've seen rate limits / delays in submission where I've submitted many manually), but in general, "other people found this link of interest" is in fact a useful archival heuristic. It's used, for example, in deciding what YouTube content to archive (mentions to Twitter will trigger an archival). That's discussed on the IA blog.
@ton There's also an Archive.Org verification API which lets you know if a specific URL has been captured. You might want to schedule a run of that a few hours / a day or so after running your initial request to confirm success, and re-try if the first attempt didn't take.
(I have notes on this I can pull up if you'd like, the information's on IA's website if you look for it though.)
On the internet, everyone knows you're a cat — and that's totally okay.
