I archive videos, images, and text from news stories that I suspect will be changed or removed later. I would run a self hosted archive site like archivebox or wallabag if I took archiving more seriously.

No, I don't. But I think it's a good concept if it makes sense to archive the sites you visit. What are your favourite webpages? For me this would mainly be reddit, saidit, youtube, some news sites and the occasional streaming host. But on none of those it makes sense in my opinion to archive them.

For me, mainly Saidit, Reddit, assorted anime news, and motorsport news.

So what do you aim to achieve by archiving them?

I get reddit and saidit if it's some kind of post with longer lasting value, but the news sites become irrelevant after you've read the article, don't they? Or am I missing something?

To preserve them for future reference.

I almost always download any songs I like from YouTube, and am thinking about downloading some webcomics I have enjoyed, because I have tons of space and love datahoarding!

日本語人ですか? 英語を話せる日本人を見つけるのはちょっと難しいですけど。
