This is an automatic 4chan archive - all of the content was originally posted there! If you need a poster's details e-mail them.
This website used to be under 4ChanArchives.cu.cc until 18.12.2015 when I got the 4archive domain name from it's ex-owner.
This archive is using an own database - 4Archive's DB dump as well as newly archived threads. You can read more about it here
Please disable AdBlock and similar addons - by doing so you insure this project's future, since I'll be able to pay the hosting bills.
4Archive.org differs from other 4chan archives by not using Fuuka nor Asagi, but by using custom hand-made scripts to archive data.
Originally it began as an on-demand 4chan threads archiver until it was shut down. The on-demand archiving is disabled ever since then.
4Archive archives automatically content from 4chan and uploads it to imgur. WebM files are not archived due to their size and content.
A thread is archived once it reaches its board's archive page (except for /b/ and /trash/ - they are archived if a thread has more than 20 posts)
Currently I archive locally and every few months I add my content here. Right now I try to archive every thread from the following boards:
/3/, /aco/, /adv/, /an/, /asp/, /b/, /biz/, /c/, /c/, /cgl/, /cm/, /d/, /diy/, /e/, /g/, /gd/, /gif/, /h/, /hc/, /his/, /hm/, /hr/, /i/, /ic/, /jp/, /lgbt/, /lit/,
/m/, /n/, /news/, /out/, /p/, /po/, /qa/, /qst/, /r/, /r9k/, /s/, /soc/, /t/, /toy/, /toys/, /trash/, /trv/, /u/, /vp/, /vr/, /w/, /wg/, /wsg/, /wsr/, /x/, /y/
You can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need to contact me about information or DMCA/takedown requests and so on. If you do
send me a report, please include as much info as possible, like: link to the thread(s), post(s) number and the reason why you want it removed!
None of the images are stored on the 4archive host. Every image on 4chan is automatically uploaded to imgur, and since imgur doesn't allow
pdf/flash/webm file uploads I can't upload them and thus host them. However, the WebM's thumbnail is uploaded to imgur, but the pdf/flash - not.
With the death of the fgts.jp archive (died mid May 2016) 4Archive is now one of the largest and oldest 4chan archives, specially for /b/ content.
The original 4Archive began in January 2014 and seized existence in May 2015
The reborn version launched in June 2015 with the original 4archive's DB dump
The original 4Archive contained 57.6k threads, ~9.7mil posts and ~3mil images
The first thread was archived on 2014-01-17 and the last one was on 2015-05-07
Since Nov. 2015 I've added more than 200k new threads (17m posts, 3.5m images)
As of 21.Dec.2015, there are 258k threads, 27mil posts, 6.5mil images (3TB) in total.
