2019-01-14: Both newly scraped images and full images are available again after making a deal with Cloudflare to disable caching. This gives us time to research alternative methods of serving full images. Donations would still help in case of image storage failure and we still need a new scraper.
The server is stable, but the scraper is at its final limits due to crippling resource use and cloudflare limits, so /gif/ and /wsg/ images are paused. Let's solve this: help build a new scraper. More details here.
Ghostposting is under extreme vetting by new moderators to mitigate spam. Crackspamming or responding to any is a bannable offense.

Getting images off of an old thread

No.2039 View ViewReplyReportDelete
So there is an r9k thread from 2014 that I am trying to find the images from. It was a weird thread where the OP was photo shopping out the nipples.

However it looks like all the images are gone. Is there any way to recover them?

Do we need a new captcha for Desuarchive? Recaptcha v1 is breakable by OCR these days. It was probably deliberately weakened by Google as part of its deprecation. I'll admit I'm not sure what the best option to replace it with is. Recaptcha v2 is probably stronger but it's much more annoying, especially if you use the usual Javascript-based version instead of the <noscript> fallback. Most captchas I've seen used on other imageboards seem to be weak in one way or another.

The other side of the question is what level of captcha protection is needed. What sort of spam are you getting that you had to turn on the captcha for? Is it specific to Desuarchive/Foolfuuka, or is it just generic crawling spambots? In the latter case, there should be more user-friendly ways to block them.

Bug in linkification

No.2035 View ViewReplyReportDelete
If a link is followed by a quotation mark, the HTML escaping occurs before linkification, and the " is split, with the &quot treated as part of the link, and the ; treated as plain text after the link.

For example https://desuarchive.org/desu/ surrounded by double quotes becomes:

The image repost stats for /r9k/ changed suddenly.
Most of the images repost counts got bumped up.
The numbers listed don't match the number returned when that hash is searched, not sure if this is to be expected.

I'm confident that images 4-20 are way off and shouldn't be there, I think #3 is inaccurate as well. The rest seem fine at least in terms of order.
Here is a screenshot of the page from Feb 6th 2017 to compare to.

Okay c'mon what gives? What the fuck happened to "the brand new server is installed and running. Threads load much faster and (in a few days) images will be served at a speed yet to be seen on desuarchive."?? I thought things would be better now?!
