Yahoo! Has Probably Destroyed the Most History, Ever – And Historians Need to Wake Up

transformativetidbits:

Since you’re here on Tumble and probably also library-related in some way, and because more than a few of you enjoy Avenger butts (you know who you are!), I’m going to assume you care at least a tiny bit about fandom history.

Which is why Yahoo!’s decision to delete 15 years of Yahoo Messages history is appalling and a worthy project for some volunteer time. Ian Milligan discusses the problem at the link above. As a longtime participator and lurker in several online fandoms going back to Harry Potter pre-movie fandom and even some X-Files groups, I would really hate to see the discussions, fan works, and general record of enthusiasm be lost to history. 

Hop over to Milligan’s blog to see what we can do to help!
