Donations to the archive would be appreciated to help fund our server hardware & storage drives. We are looking for developers to help build new software and archives, discuss here.

New Archive Software Stack

## Developer No.4785 View ViewReplyLast 50ReportDelete
The Bibliotheca Anonoma has built two drop in replacements in Python to replace the aging FoolFuuka/Asagi archival stack.
Our goal is to increase scraper efficiency, increase performance of the search engine, and significantly reduce the training time and setup necessary to operate a 4chan archive.
This new server setup allows us to generate backups without affecting scraping, public backups will be uploaded over the coming months.
If you'd like to help develop or plan to make a 4chan archive of your own, it is a tough road but we have the expertise to help you set things up. Post below or contact us at: #bibanon

* is in use at Desuarchive as part of this server migration. See the improved features over Asagi scraper in the repository.
* is a drop in replacement for the FoolFuuka frontend, check it out at our demonstration site: It is sufficient for non-ghostposting use, but we are still working on search and moderation tools and development help is appreciated.

Lastly, We hope to learn Rust to totally redesign the Asagi SQL schema. (currently dependent on Percona MariaDB TokuDB and has numerous conversion issues) Two efforts are underway:
* is a drop in replacement for the Asagi scraper. It is in testing at .
* is a full stack archive stack replacement and PostgreSQL schema redesign, most likely the best path forward past the aging Asagi schema.

GhostPosting Rules

No.6739 View ViewReplyReportDelete

I've started ghostposting a lot more ever since I wrote the userscript above. While ghostposting, I've noticed that desuarchive doesn't like some URLs. Is there documentation on what is and isn't allowed here? My guess is that you're trying to prevent spammy content and that's totally understandable, but a little clarification would help.

I want to be a good citizen here, because I'm very thankful for the service that you provide.

Case Sensitive Search

No.6678 View ViewReplyReportDelete
How do I make search terms case-sensitive? For example I want to search for "IT" as in information technology but this brings in "it" as in referring to a subject as well. Quotation marks narrow it down to only include whole words but still ignores case.

would it be possible to reset the post count on the image reposts for /mu/ for shits and giggles?
its posted by literally one guy in the kpop general and i want to piss him off, cheers

Desuarchive doesn't show up on google

No.6716 View ViewReplyReportDelete
Desuarchive can no longer be found on google, and the twitter has been deleted. Is desuarchive going down? I hope not, because this is the only /d archive I can find that has a search function.

> Old full images will not be available until we get our CDN server up. No data has been lost.
Dunno when the above is from but around 2014 a lot of the images are missing so is there any other archive I can get them? TYSM

Is's search bonked? They claim their search server is running but even though they're actively archiving their search doesn't show anything after February 28.

How do I confine my searches to specific generals? If I put text in the subject field my search term yields 0 results

how do I exclude something from a search?
4channel has too many fucking general threads that hog up all the search results with their stupid opening posts.

Old thumbnails

No.6666 View ViewReplyReportDelete
I just found out that this archive doesn't have some old (from 2011) /a/ thumbnails, yet does.
Did something happen? Or is the old thumbnail import still WIP?

As for why I need them, I'm creating a tool to roughly recreate the catalog of a board of a given day, according to timestamps. It uses an archive's search function, but has it blocked for some reason.
Why this? Internet archaeology. (pic semi-related)

Booru imports, round 2

Occasional-assistant-with-Desuarchive here again with an update on >>4157.

An additional 63.8k images (a bit over 40 GB) have been added to /mlp/ thanks to the assistance of some crazy horsefucker who apparently has a copy of every image on Derpibooru. The first pass last year looked at filenames that hadn't been altered before posting to 4chan, but this time around, we were able to get a hash of every image they had, get a list of all missing images on Desu, and just copy over any overlap.

This approach also generalizes to any large cache of images, so much like last time, if you know of any archivist with quite the collection, hit us up in Matrix or post here in this thread.

Merry Christmas, ponyfags. For the rest of you... raincheck? Also get your autists in touch with us.
