Help preserve content from the official Dr. Mario World social media accounts [sorta URGENT]

As you may already know, the Dr. Mario World mobile game is set to end its services 1 November 2021, less than a week from this thread’s conception.

In anticipation of this event, the game’s official social media accounts—namely, those on Facebook and Twitter—have ceased making any more announcements regarding in-game updates as of 1 October 2021. To me, the radio silence on display raises the possibility that those accounts will be retired or made private sometime around the game’s discontinuation.

Over time, these accounts have amassed a large amount of exclusive content, ranging from quips authored by the game’s virus characters, to unique promotional artwork. Our coverage of this content, however, has been poor. Unless there is a concerted effort to have it documented, we risk losing it in a matter of time.

I’ve been going pretty hard for the past month to salvage as much of this content as I could, but as it stands I doubt I alone will be able to make the deadline. Therefore, I am calling for volunteer editors to join efforts into bringing this process to a finish before the projected deadline of 1 November 2021. To keep track of our progress, I grouped the content by certain subjects and set up a checklist, with a link to the relevant wiki section or page beside each entry:

*Virus quotes (Red, Blue, and Yellow) [link]

*Worlds [link]
*Skill Summit [link]
*Versus Mode general artwork [link]
*Versus Mode specialists group artwork [link]
*Various in-game events (Collect Stars, Eliminate Viruses etc.) [link]
*Log-In Bonus maps [link]
*Paid packs [link]
*Daily featured staffing [link]
*Miscellaneous [link]

I realise this is a ridiculously late call, but I seem to have overestimated my tenuous time resources and how this endeavour twines around all my other responsibilities.

Here’s the game’s social media:

Curious: has there been an effort to datamine the game's text files and such?

I wish I could help with the quotes and stuff, but idk how I'm able to help if I don't have access to text.

Everything in-game is stored in an apk file on your phone. I have all of the game's contents in my computer, and it's all openable with AssetStudio GUI. The content in your phone is stored under com.nintendo.zama btw. And as Koopa Con Carne said, someone has access to the source code on the Dr. Mario World preservation Discord server, they can't release it for obvious reasons.

EDIT: BTW, have you joined the Discord server for the game? It has a channel dedicated to reposting tweets from the Twitter account.

From what I noticed, quite a lot of them have already been archived actually. However, you need the original URLs to access them; searching for captured URLs with the link prefix https://twitter.com/Drmarioworld_EN/ doesn’t bring up anything on my end, and the calendar of archives for the Twitter account’s main page is unreliable because the captures refuse to load tweets past a certain point.

This is a good point. Often discord servers have feed channels where a bot reposts any new tweets with the image embedded.
