Fully supported LJ backup facility

Fully supported LJ backup facility

Short, concise description of the idea
There would be a utility fully supported by lj that would back up all user content held on the livejournal servers.

Full description of the idea
The idea is to provide a way in which a person entire content can be stored off the livejournal servers. This would do more than the existing back up utilities which extract only text. It would also lift off all voice posts, scrapbook photos, user pics, profiles, to do posts, etc.

An ordered list of benefits
  • * This would provide comfort to users that their data is safe. I was a member of a social networking site called www.facparty.com which had 7million users, but has mass deleted accounts following various issues and now has only 200,000. All my photos have now gone from that site.
  • * Based on the example of ljarchive(which backs up entries, but not other data) it would be easier to search for specific entries, information.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • * Likely to be a difficult project, although lj archive's code would provide a useful starting point.
