Why are there so many 4chan archiving sites? http://yotsuba.1ch.us/
All the new ones are just incompetently uploading the same archive.moe data. On top of that, none of them are archiving the boards that people want archived (except maybe that big one if it's actively archiving).
Cause threads die quick af, sometimes I wanna come check how a thread went two hours after I initially looked at it only to be met with a 404. What would you rather have archived instead?

Censorship on fast moving imageboards isn't really legitimate. If censorship is occurring on on /v/, you post about it 10 times faster on /b/. The other option is not using 4chan when there are many more options out there.
foolz admitted it bit its own foot when they started hosting /v/ and /vg/ which burned the whole foolz staff with the stress of archiving /v/ and /vg/ and they all ended up quitting.
The archiving sites are stupid though, especially since they all use the same shitty software. All they do is record every thread posted, and the huge majority are shit. Someone needs to make a site that just saves the best threads from the current archive sites (through nominations maybe?).
