G- guys, I don't think the archive is coming back this time...
I'm deeply worried.
I used it to search through old arguments and bait, counter-bait, and counter-counter bait.
What does this mean exactly?
Weren't you around when the last archive vanished? Threads reached bump limit
>And how is this anime related?
Wow. Now I really need to live here 24/7 not to miss anything.
Archives do not go against 4chan culture.
The whole point of pruning is to force people to abandon old threads and move on to new ones instead of discussing the same thing over and over, having the threads still there for viewing does not go against that as long as they aren't on the board and can't be replied to. Even when they added the 7-day archive it changed nothing.
>Even when they added the 7-day archive it changed nothing.
I'd like a middle ground between a permanent archive and no archiving at all. Make it six months, a year at most. Enough to grab reasonably relevant material from the past before it's gone forever.
Personally, I used it to make image dumps for certain series and just post the link to it, in order to avoid redundant dumping.
>As part of the site's new direction, any third party sites that are holding user information are being taken down
>The storing of user information was a big concern for users
fucking hell hiro-chan
Who's taking the reigns this time?
I'm only scared that all the old archives are going to be lost, they've been transferred so many times and old images were always fucked on moe.
I'm gonna make a archive! It's gonna be full of Justice and /a/ threads and no
/r9k/ and /v/ because we all know that killed the archive.

Upon receiving a 410 status code, the client should not request the resource again in the future. Clients such as search engines should remove the resource from their indices. Most use cases do not require clients and search engines to purge the resource, and a "404 Not Found" may be used instead.
>there are people in this thread that don't remember the days before we had an archive, where a dead thread was dead.
You're right, I did. Funny enough I never made a real mental note of the switch from easymodo to foolz, nothing much changed/broke/etc.
Do other boards other than /a/ even use the archive as much as we do? /a/ was the only board people would ghostpost on when 4chan was down. Just save /a/ and probably /jp/ and fuck the other boards.
No board should be archived.
This is an anonymous imageboard. There's not supposed to be any identity and there's not supposed to be any retaining of posts.
People who use archives are usually just newfags who need to lurk more.
Maybe the server was so shit they're changing it for a new one? Idk, at least the image server still works, surely they backed up the data stuff, they can't be that worthless.
>There's not supposed to be any identity
And there isn't, archives don't and can't save IPs.
Unless you use a name or post your own personal information, in which case you can't really complain.
>there's not supposed to be any retaining of posts.
Why not? Again, no identification is stored along with the posts so the whole "anonymous imageboard" thing is still intact.
I used the archive to search characters I like and see other anons praising them
and keeping track of posts with stuff I made as a drawfag for an ego boost.
I can access it just fine
Without the archives we just talk about the same topics over and over again. There's no way to grab an image from an old thread or look up old information, so threads devolve into either reposting the same content constantly or things being lost.
It's a good thing I rad this thread while I had the chance.
Moot hasnt been a part of this community in any major way for fucking years. All the interest he had in this site was finding a way to monetize it, or failing that sell it off.
I'm not saying theres anything wrong with that but the point is who gives a shit what he thinks.
TW news know a lot better than CNN
If I recall correctly traffic dramatically increased on archive.moe right after /r9k/ incident
here's your reply
I almost miss woxxy. I still have a nymph folder
Archive's are useful to preserve how wrong people are about things.
Once you post something on the internet its there forever.
Even deleting it doesnt ACTUALLY delete it, its like a hard drive, it just goes under the radar.
Just wanted to point that out.
/r9k/? Yeah, but it doesn't need to be archived.
>not using 4chan X's random filename feature
this is the worst thing that could have happened.
why would the school shooting shit even fuck with the archive? i understand if they had to take it down for a few days because of the huge amounts of traffic, but maybe they are just moving to a new domain name.
Hiroyuki industries and co.
We save arr your personal data so you dont have to worry!
I don't come to /a/ often and I use it daily. When I heard about it being down my first thought was "i'm gonna search the archive to see if anyone else is talking about this" before I realized my mistake.
No one, there aren't a lot of people with the financial resources and knowledge to take over from here. You could try to make the site self sustaining with some banner ads, but literally everyone on the non-shit boards uses adblock.
It was having problems long before that. As early as the middle of September the search function going down was becoming a regular occurrence. There were even threads about that... oh wait.
Are you retarded? The archive doesn't have poster IPs so there's nothing there that could ever be useful for the FBI, if they wanted anything they'd have to get it directly from 4chan.
serves you right you shitters, finally you can TELL PEOPLE TO LURK instead of looking up the archives like a bunch of shitters.
you faggots don't know how much this is a blessing. You also cry too much.
How much does the archive cost a month? I can't imagine an /a/ archive with images being deleted after six months could cost all the much money.
Yeah, I don't know if paying someone is the way to go. Paying a hosting company is different.
Might be the only option.
Fuck you, m8. I'm serious.
I bet a certain romanian is behind this, just like foolz.
There are 5 stages of grief, but I'm still in denial stage. This happened before, surely it'll be back up eventually or another replacement will take up the job?
Well, life is over now.
Now I have to make a thread on /a/ for every post or topic I waant to look up.
What was the name of Rance's new slave in the new game? I read it on here a few months ago.
That doesn't even make fucking sense, it's not like reading the archive takes less effort that lurking.
>finally you can TELL PEOPLE TO LURK
This is hilarious coming from the /v/ermin.
>/r9gay/ ever being deleted
how about no, do you want sissyposting to overrun every other board?
The threads are not lost forever, they are still living inside those who read them and partially reappears in other threads.
I really don't get this archive thing, It's not like anyone is reading past threads.
But /r9k/ is literally Reddit 2.0. All the threads on /r/4chan are either from /r9k/ or /b/. And sine they removed the alogrythm to only allow unique images there's literally no reason for /r9k/ to exist other than neckbeard circlejerking.
I-I can't wait to look this thread u-up when the archive comes back and laugh at the panic.
>moot always hated archives
>"It makes the 4chan experience less fun"
>tried to shut them down with no avail
>sell the site to a hiro
>fakes a shooting post
>hiro don't understand sorry
>FBI, CIA and other big guys investigate through the archives
Finally, now we will return to our glory days, thanks moot ;_;7
the irony in this post in astounding
/qa/ had some good meta discussion when I last checked it just a few days ago. now it seems to be raided by /s4s/
You have to manually archive threads on suptg, so only the Quests and threads judged to be important/interesting get archived. The search function is also limited to the title, description and tags, meaning you can't search for individual topics, terms or anything else that's in the actual posts.
>That one reddit faggot complaining about reddit "hate"
I actually hated archives because sometime when I asked something I was told to "look in the archives" and I could never find anything in archives, unless I had exact picture or post number
Why? This website is rapidly going down hill. It's nothing but newfags as far as the eye can see. How many good people need to leave before you realize 4chan is fucking dead, anon?
You know the drill. See you in 5 years.
Letting the newfags win, are you?
You're pathetic. I will bitch and moan until every last one of those shitstains lurks and assimilates into /a/. Letting outsiders chase you out, you should be ashamed.
Bring Woxxy back for the /a/ only archive.
Jesus christ this thread is cancer
Newfag this newfag that
Have some oppai loli
>you wont be able to see the original post now
no, supesu shatturu endo supeesu shippu onri
I honestly don't know. It just sort of happened. Maybe people got tired of calling it out, a dangerous prospect for the future with the rampant "tbh" "fam" and "smh" shit going around.
I rarely see >mfw or >tfw though and when I do they're usually attached to low quality posts.
Cancer thread attracts cancer posters
It should be by mod grant only, so people like artists or celebs who actually use it for a fucking purpose can still use it, but attention whores cant.
Nice to see that I'm not the only one who dislikes those posts, since you rarely see anybody call them out, but I simply filtered them a while back.
Maybe filters are to blame for everything.
surely you are rusing
open the catalog and it is literally right there
>It should be by mod grant only, so people like artists or celebs who actually use it for a fucking purpose can still use it, but attention whores cant.
Literally fucking reddit.
Should've just been forced anonymous altogether. Judge the post with its content, not the name behind it.
fuck no. /r9k/ is a containment board. keep that shit there. do you understand what will happen if /r9k/ gets deleted? frogs will spill everywhere and they'll shitpost till they get their board back.
My question is why the fuck that useless board was even being archived? There is literally nothing of value there.
Fuck that place.
a school shooting
Who the hell even uses >mfw anymore?
We were pretty successful in chasing that idiocy, as well as >tfw off. I almost never see that shit anymore and it's usually attached to a dead thread or an obvious shitpost when it crops up.
Hell, we've been shunning frogposting and feelposting to pretty good effect. The only reason you see so many "tbh", "smh" and "fams" is because the niggerell clique loves them and spam them along with the rest of their usual shit. Don't mistake a few exceptionally dedicated autists on mobile for the average of /a/.
Eggman made a false claim the night before with horrible timing a hispanic shooter came out of nowhere in oregon. The media had mix views how some were egging him on and some weren't. People suddenly went to the thread through the archive to ghost post about it.
Dont get so mad at me anon im just talking to you. I hate tripcancer just as much as you.
Some retard posted a thread hinting about shooting up a school and then a school actually got shot up.
Now FBI is probably all over that shit. I don't see any other reason for the archive to get taken down.
fit was archived on heinessen, but it died
there might be a new archival site
/fit/ has some amazing advice and great threads sometimes
so does /g/ - there's some amazing stuff in the archives.
there has never been anything wrong with >tfw
normies abducted pepe, there is probably a huge imgur archive full of them.
2009-2013 /fit/ was the most fun board i've been a part of since 2005

And forced moot off along with it. Some people said it's the fappening but I don't really believe it.
Also, here's hiro drinking with Suika
moot is a useless faggot. That said, the site's gone down about three or four times with this dumb Jap faggot in charge and he's only had it for about two or three weeks so wow we really traded down.
>not knowing Kinomod.
Depends on the time of day.
I have a rather broken sleep schedule so I've had the opportunity to see 4chan at various different times.
I think what /a/ is lacking most of all is mods/janitors during European morning and day time.
>no more proof of the full Legendary Dubs Thread other than this screenshot:
Let's see what happened on 4chan in 2014:
>Someone killed his girlfriend and posted it to /b/.
>moot's most humiliating experience was made public and the members of his own community laughed at him for months
Who could blame the guy?
>All the interest he had in this site was finding a way to monetize it
not really, if he wanted to he really could have ,
the problem with moot is he stuck to his principles too much.
he could have opened a 4chan and sold cheaply made items with memes printed on them and he would have made mad cash, but he found the notion of profiting off memes and other peoples work as repugnant so he didn't.
I've been waiting a few days to search for certain images. Now I might not be able to. Fuck.
Someone fill me in on the last two?
