This page offers information on how to obtain complete content dumps of RationalWiki for backup or for forking the project at other locations.
Most of the content at RationalWiki is released under the CC-BY-SA 3.0 license, which means it is freely available for reuse by anyone as long as any modifications are released under the same or similar license and credit is given to RationalWiki as the source. Image copyrights are contained within the XML dump - many images in the tarball are fair use, so don't reuse them out of context unless you know what you're doing. For complete licensing information refer to RationalWiki:Copyrights.
While manual replication of content is easiest for a few pages only, content dumps are ideal for complete replication of the site or for content backup.
The content dump below, from February 2015, is full history. Keep in mind these are not full backups of RationalWiki as certain meta-information, user names and passwords are not included.

User:David Gerard will get these onto archive.org at some point, so please regard the above links as strictly temporary. archive.org will also get anonymised page hit logs from the Squid servers, so someone with too much time on their hands can make nice graphs and stuff.
