If you can read this, you're in the right place!
Update 2021-12-13: Patience please! None of the archive data is lost. It takes a while to unpack ~500GB of shitposts, believe it or not, so the archives are being backfilled by year. 2015 is unpacking right now, as an example, followed by 2014 and so on. You'll get the 'requested URL was not found on this server' generic 404 on most older threads until then. I'll announce when the unpacking is complete; THEN you can start reporting missing threads.
... and please for the love of fuck TELL ME THE THREAD NUMBER WHEN YOU DO GODDAMNIT
Update 2021-12-14: So there's a handful of completely arbitrary threads missing on the new server, but they're safe and sound on the old server. I'm going to write a script to test and rsync every entry in the database to ensure the gaps are filled. In the meantime, go ahead and keep reporting threads, I appreciate it. (PS: For those of you sending messages on Twitter, I'm still banned for a couple days for telling someone to 'fuck off a cliff', which apparently is promoting suicide, so I can't reply to your messages. Sorry!)
Update 2021-12-17: I've found additional problems and fixed them. For instance, there were a lot of threads that didn't get updated permissions after transfer, so they were just 403ing; they should all work now.
I also realized that the new thread schema - /archive/year/threadnum/ vs. /archive/threadnum/ - broke every URL on the internet linking back to the site. Oops! My bad. I added a little .htaccess and PHP magic to properly redirect requests still looking for the old URLs. Your bookmarks and TV Tropes links should work again, hooray!
One of the remaining orders of business is to fix the SSL cert, which I'll do Saturday or Sunday, depending on whether I die in the upcoming blizzard. As usual, if any threads aren't working right, please leave a comment below or contact me on IRC/Discord.
Another year's gone by, and another Axetoberfest gone too soon. Like the previous posts state, we're actually still very much alive, just on IRC/Discord mainly these days. I'm not even sure how many of you will even read this message! Still, it's good to let people know we're still going. It's been... a long time honestly.
Before I start waxing poetic, this is just a notice that we'll be transferring to a new VPS very soon. This shouldn't mean anything to usual archive-goers, but it may mean temporary downtime while the shift is performed. This may include disabling new archive entries for a little while, though I don't expect any extended downtime (and the old server will stay up until the new one is completed, regardless).
In addition to just moving some 14 years' worth of /tg/ over, I also need to rewrite a lot of the site for new PHP versions and such, so that will take time as well. Things might break for a bit after the move, though most of the services on this site have gone away, so again, I'm not sure what might even get noticed. In any event, we'll be on Discord/IRC (the IRC is moving too, so maybe hit Discord first).
Happy Halloween month! We're still around, I just never get around to updating the homepage. Everyone's here for the archives or in our IRC or Discord, anyway! I feel like I should make a more substantial update, but I'm not sure what to say, or to whom I'm writing, so...
It's been a really long decade this year, so I'm just hoping things get better next year, really. In the meantime, join us in the IRC/Discord for AXETOBERFEST activities!
I don't have any messages, I just realized the last update was in 2018. We're still here and always active in the IRC if you want to come join us!
... 4channel? ... just... just why.
Uh. Anyway, the... interesting decision to move all of the worksafe boards from 4chan.org to 4channel.org has not apparently impacted the archive, as it was correctly following the redirect between domains. However, to be on the safe side, I've updated the archive to retrieve threads from the new domain. Please let me know in the IRC (preferred) or via email if you see problems with the archival process.
Happy new year, jerks. Let’s hope 2018 is less terrible, eh?
(it’s going to be worse, isn’t it)
Merry Christmas, dorks! So it turns out something on 4chan's end changed recently, so images weren't getting pulled down correctly (both /tg/ and /qst/ archives). I spent some time this evening unwinding from a busy holiday by fixing it. (Yes, this is how I relax. DON'T FUCKING JUDGE ME)
So, just wanted to make you aware of it and that I've already fixed it. Most of the threads self-repaired shortly after I made the adjustments, so that was nice. Threads that fell off the boards before I fixed the bug will still be borked, unfortunately.
Anyway, enjoy your various winter holidays!
Well, it finally happened, you maniacs. /qst/ is now a thing.
Until the shitstorm settles, I've created a separate /qst/ Archive to make sure nothing is lost in the transition, if a transition even occurs. Please do not archive shitposts or just downvote everything into oblivion if you don't like it; I'm just trying to help. Take it up with 4chan administration.
Recently, some rapscallions have been deliberately misarchiving threads, mainly quests. Some threads' details are switched, while completely random threads have been added as if they're part of a series. These nefarious individuals have succeeded in wasting tens and tens of my
objectively worthless precious minutes fixing the entries. If you're a victim of these ne'er-do-wells, you can either email me or reply to this post, and I'll get around to fixing them eventually.
Please be sure to include the thread number and correct fields (title, description, tags) so I can more rapidly process these requests.
