2018-10-04: Search server active for recent posts, rebuilding for older posts. DesuArchive & RBT restored after host's storage had a 2nd SAN hiccup on 9/24. No damage, but posts need import from the contingency scraper. Many thanks to our new tetrarchy of sysadmins who worked to fix this complex service after the loss of the original admin. More info later. 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.
Much like /v/ before /vg/, /tv/ has quite a few recurring same-topic threads that don't seem to be policed. Currently, Breaking Bad is an example (like, say, Dark Souls was for /v/). At any given time there are around 10 different threads on Breaking Bad, give or take.
My argument is if video games gets an entire general thread on the premise that there are several games that get repeat threads, the same can be said for /tv/ since there are just as man, if not more, movies and tv series as there are video games.
moot, have you ever considered getting the whole codebase rewritten?
I know that a proven working codebase is not something to be taken for granted. I also know that users wail and gnash their teeth at the most minor of changes. But I also know that modern code would afford the ability to do so many cool things.
Personally what I would love to see is a new, open-sourced platform to power the anonymous image board format across the Internet and into the future. The 4chan API and open-sourced extension was a real bit of foresight and I'd love to see more of it. I've worked with the various Futaba forks and they're really not much chop. There's a lot of social-network platforms out there, but the anonymous image board format just has no major players besides 4chan. It's such a niche and has so much going for it. You could be a champion for the format itself and not just a single website.
>>>/prog/subject.txt >>>/vip/subject.txt Both come up as 403 forbidden, however those are needed to find threads by subject or poster in that Shiichan's built in navigator is too cluttered to work properly. Please change permissions to those files on all textboards to 755 so that navigation is possible.
