I read this answer written by AMtwo:

The job that uploads the data dump to Archive.org was disabled on 28 March, and marked to not be re-enabled without approval of senior leadership.

This is a huge change, as it means SE is now trying to keep SE user data stuck within SE.

When does the SE "senior leadership" plan to re-enable the uploads of the data dump to Archive.org?

    Does this answer your question? June 2023 Data Dump is missing (note there's now a staff answer).

    Didn't downvote but I would say that the previous discussion was still pretty new (only 2 days old) and it would be better for "senior leadership" to reply to that discussion since it already had a status-review tag (if you were expecting them to respond). I would have waited at least a week. Jun 9, 2023 at 22:03

    @CaveJohnson I wanted a question asking clearly for the upload date Jun 9, 2023 at 22:07
  • See also What is the current (June 2023) status of the data dumps and the company’s commitment to them? (by SE staff, although that question was closed, so that answer may end up getting moved elsewhere)
