Miiverse Download Complete!
I have just finished downloading all the remaining posts and replies, as well as all associated resources, for every Krystal-related thing we could find on Miiverse, just hours before its final shutdown.
How much did we get? The final tally is a bit hard to explain. First, there were Krystal related posts. There were somewhere around 2470 of them, with the vast majority of those being images of some kind. Then, there were 96 Krystal-related reply pages we grabbed. Some of those Krystal-related replies were on non-Krystal posts, so the total post count is actually 2483. Combined with the reply pages, we grabbed a total of about 2580 pages! The combined resources, images, and html data clocks in at just under 400MB.
In the coming weeks I will be taking a closer look at the content I've downloaded. I'll clean it up, do some filtering, and create good listings for them. We'll also try to find all the Krystal-related replies that we didn't specifically mention above. To be sure, there are hundreds, if not thousands, of Krystal-related replies in addition. Once that's all done, I will host what I have for all to see. We'll also have some special versions of everything, such as a gallery of purely Krystal artwork, without the context surrounding it.
I want to take a moment to express my most sincere gratitude to Falemirous. Without his efforts, we might not have gotten about half of the content we did. Please thank him for his help. Also, thanks to GoldenFox51 for sending us a huge bunch of last minute posts to go through. It is thanks to his efforts that we broke the 2500 page barrier.
Now, I need a rest. I've been working on this on and off, all day, and it's been hectic. But we did it guys! The Miiverse Download Project is complete. Next stop, the Miiverse Hosting Project.
PS: Just wanted to let you guys know, the gigantic Miiverse Thank You collage (Miiverse Link), which you can see in the image above, features a Krystal picture from CommanderD. Congrats to him on getting some recognition in addition to his many hundreds of Krystal posts on Miiverse. If you have the full resolution image (over 10MB), you'll see his artwork in the red box area highlighted in the image above. Here's the original Miiverse page where it was posted, though it will only be visible for a couple hours more.
Miiverse is gone its sad to see all those people I once knew fade away. sigh atleast we have google chrom.
