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.
It has come to my attention from a /bant/ thread that world2ch is dying, I can't reach the folks at bibanon at the moment but I'd like to enquire if they have archived the text boards (or at least some of the historical posts) or if they're still vulnerable. I apologize if this is the wrong location to post this.
Search works well enough on desuarchive, but I'd really like some option to only show threads instead of all posts containing a given string. It seems simple enough to implement, especially since OP is already flagged (unique css class 'post_is_op').
If I uploaded a bunch of ancient pics from Futaba would there be any interest here in them? They're mostly 三次元 screenshots from 2003-4 so it's 3DPD shit with comments that mostly read like something from old /b/ or /r9k/ but there's also some variety pics from some other sources I found.
So this archive started archiving boards since 2015. How come the archives go back as far as 2010 for /a/? I can look up posts from 2010 to following live thread reactions, but anything from 2011-2014 is missing.
