RIP archive

Anyone else remember easy modo?

At some point they will realize that they need to stop trying to collect all the /v/ shit.

>>131873997
Well shit.

Even when it was up the status page stopped loading for me around the same time the search died.

Who or what is fetcher?

The on-board archives last a week, as long as archive.moe isn't down that long it can just scrape those to catch up.

This. Force /v/ and its spin-offs to maintain their own archive.

>>131874469
It changed, you can see for yourself by opening the archives, slapping the end key, and seeing the oldest thread.
>>
>>131874516
I see. Well, we still lose everything that was deleted, so probably a bunch of off-topic discussions and shit threads.
>>
Moe was probably the worst archive we ever had.
>>
>>131874560
That's actually a fair point, I hadn't considered that.

That guy always talking about troid is going to add the archives going down to his conspiracy, isn't he? Since it won't scrape deleted posts of his.
>>
>>131874674
Theres a big kerfluff about it in the sadpanda thread, because Daiz showed up and a bunch of posts got DMCA'd for linking to a blog with ripped Fakku content.

He should really stop archiving /v/, I expect more shitposting and console wars than anything worth discussing coming from it. It's one of the fastest boards too so there must be lots of crap.

Someone from /v/ should make its own one if there's anything important to archive.
>>
>>131874716
So daiz is finally showing his true colors? Strange that fakku rips are still on nyaa.

After that /r9k/ shit the archive went down.
I bet it's their fault and the fbi is abusing the archive.
>>
>>131874846
/v/ermin will throw a fit, but it needs to be done. Everything worth remembering from /v/ is already immortalized in screencaps anyway, they don't need a comprehensive archive.

And if they want one, then one of their own should assume the burden.

So is everything older than a week ago dust in the wind?
>>
>>131874923
I know the timing seems more than coincidental, but rationally speaking I don't see (1) why the archives would only fail to traffic now when the story broke days ago or (2) why the FBI would need to shut down the archives to peruse them. In fact, 4chan still has the original data and has likely handed it over already.

>>131874988
I feel their hideous shitpost collages capture the aesthetic of the board far better than an archive ever could. Really gives you a feel for how the people there think.
>>
>>131873997
Personally, I don't mind. 4chan was never meant to be archived. Archive singular threads that are worth keeping, but don't archive everything.
>>
>>131875001

Only whatever was posted when the archive was down.

Can we go back to a system where people need to vote for a thread to be archived?

>>131875025

They don't need to because they have their own archive with PRISM. Anything said on 4chan is logged automatically.
>>
>>131874923
>>131875025
They would go to the fucking source, not to a third party's "archive".

What's wrong with you OP.
>>
>>131875001
Just the stuff deleted while the fetcher was down, and the stuff pushed off 4chan's archive in that time span.

The old posts are still archived and can be rehosted if it comes to that. The issue right now is that the fetching of posts is down so there will be gaps.

Try to define that. You are probably going to run into a wall with your idea of a ban.
Much better to leave it to the discretion of good mods what constitutes shitposting, because that can catch everything or nothing depending on who's in charge.
>>
>>131875231
I miss the days when we could use the word "epic" without its neo-/b/ connotations.
>>
>>131875098
I always hated that. People would try to show off in the hopes getting into the archive and then shamelessly beg for archive votes. Created a fake, tryhard atmosphere similar to what you see on reddit where people desperately want upvotes and into the gold club.

But that is part of the beauty of 4chan. You need to give up on life to fully enjoy it. Also, every repost is a repost repost. You can literally have the same discussion the next day and probably have the same people replying the very same things.

The archive was going down a lot before the incident happened. It was down even before someone linked the incident with /r9k/.
>>
>>131875333
No so. There are regular manga dumps and live TLs that happen only once a week, if you miss the thread you need the archive to read them. It's that or wait weeks for the chapter to be posted somewhere online.
>>
>>131875333
I for one recycle every good post I make in subsequent threads. It's just a pain to keep track of them when I can't look them up in the archive.

Maybe I should start an offline collection of shit I posted on 4chan.
>>
>>131875231
Yes, that's how I use it too. And I keep around some with nice info or discussions. It's also pretty useful to find some nice rare shit you guys scanned, ripped or translated while I wasn't around.
>>
>>131875333
That hasn't been true since 2012.

Especially for stuff like live-manga TL, which happens often on /a/.
>>

>No so. There are regular manga dumps and live TLs that happen only once a week, if you miss the thread you need the archive to read them. It's that or wait weeks for the chapter to be posted somewhere online.
People took care of that by manually archiving things. Back when we didn't have archives people saved things locally and uploaded them for others on request.

Whatever happened to redundancy? /tg/ and /pol/ both have 2 archivers (moe and 4plebs).
>>

>>131875424
There's nothing stopping them from doing that right now, yet they don't. If you miss a leak thread you either read the archives or you won't see that content until it's officially released days or sometimes weeks later.

Also I use the archive to find source for shows, manga, and porn. It's an incredibly useful resource. The only problem I have with it is it has all this bloat by archiving boards that don't need an archive.

They don't because of the archive. If there's no archive, people will start saving things again. Once the convenience of the archive is lost, people will cease being lazy and backup things locally again.

They are probably planning to. I assume that even they realize that their servers aren't powerful enough for that yet.

Nope, i got there after it already happened so i dont even know the blog name.

And he did the same with the posts on the archive, they got DMCA'd too before the archive went down.

/a/ can be helpful when you're not just a lazy asshole who didn't even try to find it.
>>
>>131875709
I actually think /a/ hated /v/ the most a few years ago. People used to accuse anyone they didn't like of being from /v/. Nowadays, I don't think people care that much about /v/ any more, while the board might not be overly popular, it's not as hated as back then.
>>
They have their usefulness but I only really liked the archives before they became common knowledge amongst /v/ermin types and people who never lurked.

I used to look forward to /a/ going down because I knew there were be some ghostbros waiting in the archive for what was better discussion of anime and manga than 99% of what we had on 4chan. There was no shitposting there in those days. I've only used the archives a slack handful of times over the years to look up things I wanted to find.
>>
>>131875709
/v/ stopped being about video games and became /b/ 2.0. Nobody likes /b/ and we certainly didn't need a second one.
>>

/a/ forgot it's tsundere for /v/ because the tsun was much too big compared to the dere.

Do you have that one haruhi doujin where it's /a/ and /v/ fucking when some other board walks in on them? That was the best edit.

The most impressive thing about /a/ and /v/ is how, although people keep saying that /a/ is turning into /v/, it's actually the opposite taking place. With each passing day, /v/ looks more and more like /a/.
>>
>>131875725
I am aware of that. Still, it's still better than nothing until the admin running moe kicks /v/ content from the servers.

>>
>>131875869

That would be amazing, if the little board actually managed to breathe quality back into the big one. I don't believe it for a second, but it makes for a nice story.
>>
>>131875709
/v/ has been total shit for years now. It's not a case of forced board rivalry, /v/ is just genuinely garbage and the people who go there are cancer.

/v/ermin are so deep in the cancer they don't even realize how shitty their board is, they honestly still believe /a/ likes them.

At least I tried.
>>
>>131875959
It might seem funny to think about, but it's the truth. Over the last couple year, the crowd on /v/ that likes "weebshit" games has grown to match the crowd that doesn't, when they used to be a minority. They have drawthreads, waifuthreads, ronerythreads, visual novel discussions, and even outright anime threads sometimes.

So long as you ignore the contant Sm4sh and MGSV threads, the content isn't as bad as people say.

There are certain threads where people are more likely to save reaction images than others. I haven't quite seen through the pattern yet, but ever since I started posting them where they might be more appreciated my images seem to have been more successful. Or so I tell myself.

This is amazing every time someone posts it.
>>
>>131876490
No, maybe it's too hard to understand for you.
The nominal topic (anime/manga vs video games) is not the important difference between /a/ and /v/.
What's important is the posting style, the way that people treat each other, the way the nominal topic is treated and stuff like that.
/a/ is good at this. /v/ is not.
>>
>>131876490
>>It means that /a/ and /v/'s userbase has a significant overlap
No it doesn't.
>People on /a/ to on /v/ to talk about video games
No they don't. I've been playing video games since I was 10, and I don't fucking talk about them on /v/ because /v/ is cancer. I do, however, visit /vg/ sometimes because of guides and mod info posted in relevant threads. That's as close as I get to visiting /v/ for video game "discussion".

If you seriously think everybody who posts about anime visits /a/ on this site you are gravely mistaken. Try visiting /wsg/ sometime, stop by the anime threads and see how many of them claim to hate /a/ and never come here.

The reason why discussion of /a/ related stuff is on the rise on /v/ is because with the increasing shift between the two boards /v/ermin can no longer comfortably discuss their favorite anime on /a/. They need to either lurk a bit (which they aren't used to at all) or talk about it on /v/ (which is easy because /v/ is off topic anyway).
/v/ discussing anime related stuff is proof that /v/ continues to fail.

I still stand by the opinion that more popular boards should have longer reply timers. This potentially -- and yes, only potentially -- will make people think harder about what to post, if they can only post every three minutes. It also gives the jans and mods more time to clean up the trash.

Actually, if we look at hachichan, we see that their /v/ is a lot bigger than /a/ and other boards barring /pol/ and /b/. /v/ crossboards a lot with /pol/, not with /a/.
We can't tell from that what board has the biggest crossboarding with /a/ but I would put my money on /sp/, if I had to, based on some poor evidence.

/pol/ really isn't anywhere near as big deal as some people imagine it to be.
Remember when moot got mad at that board, removed the post timer, put a bunch of wordfilters and told the entire site to raid it?
/pol/'s response to that was absolutely pathetic. They couldn't do shit for months.
From what I hear, they tried to retaliate by taking over /mlp/ and failed miserably, couldn't even beat a bunch of literal horsefuckers.

I don't think /pol/ should be deleted, but /pol/ is really a non-issue in the larger scheme of things. If it was deleted and if mods were told to be a bit more vigilant (like they were on /v/ for like a week after the /v/-/vg/ split), I'm absolutely certain 99% of /pol/luters would leave the site and never come back.
>>
>>131874405
That doesn't keep threads pruned by mods, though. Hopefully they get their shit together soon.
>>
>>131877649
It's absolutely debatable. I just did it. This board is just as shit as the others and so is your waifu.

>>131877711
No, it isn't. It's us, not them. They have their own board to shit up, and we have ours. The people we've been posting with for years are completely retarded, and we all need to accept this before things can start to improve.

People say the exact same thing about /a/, usually because they have casual shit taste and can't deal with people calling their favourite shows shit. Who tells me you're not the exact same type of person?

>I'd welcome their collective banishment from 4chan if such a thing were possible. 4chan needs a place to discuss video games, but /v/ isn't it.
/v/ is the best place to discuss video games on the internet, just like /a/ is the best place to discuss anime. The fact that the boards are shit is a result of the medium, not the boards. No matter what board discusses video games, it will always be shit.
>>
>>131877874
It has more to do with /pol/ being so shit that most of them didn't even care.

It's not about /pol/ "raiding" the site if they get screwed over anyway. It's that without a /pol/ containment board then /pol/ will naturally creep into every single board, most notoriously /b/ which would turn into the de-facto containment board, and god knows that's a combination that nobody wants on this site.

The issue is: no matter where you put the board, you'll always have the same types of users, simply because anime and video games appeals to a certain type of people.

That may have something to do with you having shit taste in video games and thus the threads about the games you like being shit.

The quality of the threads on /v/ is directly proportional to the quality of the game.

>No, it isn't. I'd argue if it's a place to discuss video games at all.

/v/ is honestly much better these days than 09-12, if nothing but because all of the threads are generally on-topic now. E-celeb and anti-sjw tantrum are still massive problems but current /v/ is a massive improvement over a period when the entire front page was LoL and Starcraft generals, a problem plaguing /a/ at the moment.

The same is true for /v/ in regards to video games. If you discuss good games you can have good discussions.

You need to prevent generals from rising by making sure people actually discuss anime.

/v/ is shit for several reasons. Just to name a few:
>higher levels of normalfaggotry
>turned into a warzone for /pol/ and tumblr
>authenticity of the discussion compromised by the presence of actual paid shills
>furries and other undesirable elements
>groupthink fucking everywhere

The closest thing /a/ gets to /pol/ content is the latest "JAPAN/ANIME/LOLI IS DOOMED" scare article, the response to which is usually reasonable. The only actual problem with /a/ lately is the high levels of crossboarder activity (because of anime becoming trendy in the west), and psuedo-generals being held for ongoing shows. Unfortunately there's not much to do about either other than hoping anime fades back into irrelevancy in the west and faggots stop trying to turn anime into a fad.

I've had plenty of good discussions on /v/. If you don't have shit taste in games then you'll have good discussions simply because the games don't appeal to a shitty audience.

I don't need to discuss this with you. It's a no true Scotsman. Good titles can have shitty fans.

So, should we have an official backup chan in case this hellhole goes down for good? If 4chan were to go for a couple months i think we could move enough of the userbase permanently to another chan and never have to deal with the other boards again.
/m/ and /jp/ could come, and maybe kinomod could come to if he feels like it.
>>
>>131879525
>/r/4chan
why...would you...even list that?
>>
>>131879322
This is a big reason.

When /v/ hit the bottom of the barrel, around 2010 - 2012, there were no good releases around.

On /a/, you get something to watch every season, while when it comes to video games there are occasionally long periods where nothing worthwhile is released, which naturally then drives the board into off-topic bullshit.

I disagree.

A sophisticated enough game will have a reasonably articulate fanbase and the discussions will be good.

I've yet to see a bad discussion about either games; or games that are alike.

/v/ is only bad if you like mainstream shit that appeals to casuals.

The idea that /a/ is a bad place for anime recommendations is only common among newfags anyway. You just aren't supposed to make a shit thread asking to be spoonfed. You are supposed to follow our rules. You'll get plenty of suggestions on what to watch next if you do that.

>>131879382
>it was originally made by woxxy
No it wasn't. Woxxy took over from Eksopl, who in turn took over from the original developer of the fuuka archiver engine. It went like this:

Chanarchive (2006-2013) --> The /a/rchive (2007) --> Easymodo (Eksopl, 2008) --> Green-Oval (2010) --> Back to Easymodo (2011) --> Foolz (Woxxy, late 2011) --> Archive.moe (various, 2014)
>>
>>131878883
Because many people on /a/ don't care about the news or what happens on the other boards.

It's not at all unusual.
>>
>>131879827

>>
>>131880026

>>
>>131879993
Yes, but not many people will switch unless 4chan dies.

Most spinoff-chans today are either dead or a small cancerous circlejerk.
>>
>>131879691
If we're talking about the recent years, kickstarter has delivered quite a bit. Shadowrun: Dragonfall for example, Divinity: OS and right now I'm enjoying Unity of Command.

Also, I don't think I'll go "back" to /v/. Like most people who aren't newfags I've been browsing both /a/ and /v/ for nearly a decade.
>>
>>131879895
If there is a board other than /jp/ that could pull it off, it's /a/.
Besides, between all the ERP networks from the subtle circlejerks there is probably an anon network already, we could spread the word in the different notepads, project groups, etc.
With having 1/3 of the userbase of /a/ we could have a fully viable chan, we could avoid the mistake of making boards for normalfags, wait a while to see if the population becomes stable and maybe even add a /v/ and /b/ that are heavily moderated.

The onyl way of moving /a/ with the strongly fixed roots we have is knowing that there is a secondary /a/ everyone is "supposed" to go and then nuking 4chan ourselves for a while.
i wouldn't mind ddosing the shit out of 4chan for a month or two to put this into effect if one ever comes up, i've long considered /a/ to be the soul of the 4chan i grew up in anyway
>>
>>131879934
I completely agree and I tell people that when they claim /a/ was bad on other boards.

The point is: /v/ isn't that bad either if you know how to use it.
>>
maybe moe archive should torrent a backup of the archive to avoid of all the eggs in one basket kind of situation.

Would you please pay attention to what we are arguing about? I am dismantling your No-True-Scotsman.
Good titles don't make good discussions. Lesser known (old) titles make threads with less newfags barging in with memes.
Baldur's Gate is not so much retard-immune as it is 15 fucking years old. Kids nowadays are all about recent games.
That's all that it is.

It comes from Greek.
It means "self".
That there is only the self and everyone else is the same as the self.

You're not having much of whatever you consider to be "good discussion" then. Also Shadowrun has pretty stale game play and Div:OS is plagued by a really boring storyline, I have no idea about Unity of Command.

Seems to be pretty hard to sustain that non"shit-taste" of yours these days.

And most people who aren't newfags aren't able to stomach what /v/ is today and has been for a long time now.

I think you are retarded anon, what boards do you visit other than /a/?

>>131880588
I rarely leave /a/, other boards are too shit.
If you want an example, the 8gag /a/ is a wasteland, barely a few people went there. /a/ is too disociated

>>131880557

/jp/ was there too and they are like /a/ on steroids crossboarder, every time someone says hi, im from / x /, he gets shitposted to death and banned, like they should.

Maybe an IRC.

See? Newfag crossboarder. How long habe you been in /a/ that it took you this long to realize this newshit? Go be new somewhere else.

Not him, but I expect everybody to at least try.
When there is no punctuation or capitalization you can tell that the guy didn't care what his post looks like.

Also, is it just me or has "Why [subject] [verb] [object]?" turned into a kind of meme? It's way too common to be just some random mistake.

That's because it should have been /2hu/.

Yeah, liking anime and manga should be a bannable offense on /a/.

That has nothing to do with anything.

Well then, until you acclimate to /a/ board culture eat shit, your opinion is invalid and won't be taken seriously even if you continue posting for a while like you probably will. You people always give up after a while anyway.
>>
>muh crossposters
Are there seriously people who only visit one board? Even moot said it was not supposed to be that way and that boards should keep relationship with each other
No other board is as paranoid about this except /jp/ and /tv/

There should be an archive called blow.me or chun.ni

Try not doing either for a while.

This. If someone makes an innocent grammar mistake that's not a big deal, but you should at least make the effort to use proper capitalization and punctuation. This isn't a fucking chatroom.

When people say crossboarder they don't mean somebody who posts on different boards.
They mean somebody who posts on different boards and thinks the same kind of attitude works on all of them.

Also, grammar nazism is stupid, if you are sable to disregard someone's point just of some irrelevant shit and not actual argument because of then you have autism.

>>131880999
The rise of "board culture" is probably the worst thing new posters did to 4chan in its history.

>>131880492
Yeah, pepe. We should all use "normies" insted. Just like the cool kids do.
>>
>>131880874
I'm not going to go troll through posts on other boards and anime sites from two years ago just to prove a point.

You're delusional if you think /a/ is solely responsible for funding it. Sure, I imagine a good share of it came from /a/nons, but all of it? You're retarded.
>>
>>131880966
He's on twitter.
>>
>>131880697
Whats your point? 4chan is for fun, believe it or not; this isn't a public policy forum where intellectual incest is a concern. The reason tumblr is criticized as a hugbox is precisely because they discuss things like politics and social issues in their hugbox.
>>
>>131880960
That's not what crossboarders means, numbnuts.
>>
>>131880960
I don't care if you go to other boards as long as you leave their shit culture over there. I have lost count of how many times i've heard "i go to this board to shitpost but not on /a/"

I personally go to /vg/, /tg/, /co/ sometimes and /mu/, but /a/ gets /a/ culture, i'f never bring shit i seet here here, even more when everyday i can see where the other road leads too.

>I bet you don't know any language except English fags.

I think crossboarder is only used from people from shit boards, like /b/ /v/ /pol/ /soc/ ect.. I dont think anyone here has a problem with places like tg or biz
>>
>>131880760
/tg/'s glorious days are long over, nowadays everything is sterilized and the only things left are self-contained quest threads and generals, the magic that made the board fun is no where to be found.

Funny enough, that's how I feel about modern /a/.
>>
>>131880960
It's not a problem if you visit other boards, it's a problem if you post like you're on another board.

>>131880766
You can at least try, sub-human.

Perfect. How much does hosting a fomain cost and where do these servers come from? How do they replace servers when it's dead?

never went to /tg/ but I heard it use to be like a general nerd board.
>>
>>131881043
The point isn't to disregard your argument, it's to disregard the shitposter.

That's literally what a "crossboarder" is, idiot. And people very clearly don't want you here if you give the slightest implication that you browse other boards.

Just retire r9k! It's nothing but trouble! People took that post literally when it wasn't him!

It doesn't matter, the response is valid regardless.

Why not get rid of 4chan in general. All those people that have killed a human being over the years. I bet a good amount of them did browse 4chan. Even /a/. Why not get rid off /a/? What about that guy from /b/ that went to Pakistan with a sword in order to kill Osama? Shut it all down.

Oh, the one that's filled with shitty, circlejerk general threads that you can hide in and give you a warped perspective of the board's general ethos.
