  • Some archives maynot be available in the real time, it's basically because of a lag on internet archive's side. But the snapshot is taken in the real time. If you can find any archive link that's not resolving after 7 days of the edit made by this bot, report on my talk page. -- Confirmed by Eatcha (Correspondence with devs)
