Yesterday at approximately 10AM 4chan time, our alternate database started experiencing trouble fetching new posts. This was due to our IP address being blocked on the a.4cdn.org
servers. The IP address was changed, and fetching resumed, however it was promptly blocked a few hours later.
I now know that desuarchive / rbt is now also affected by this block. This means we are unable to fetch any new posts / thumbnails / or media. This situation has never occurred before to any 4chan archiver past or present.
This impacts our ability to archive 4chan now and in the future. Already one archiver, yuki.la
, appears to have similar issues that they are barely getting around. If left unresolved, the issue may eventually affect all 4chan archivers.
We would like to hear from a member of the 4chan staff regarding this matter. We have already attempted to make contact and still await reply. If you would like to communicate with me directly, please contact me at [email protected]
If there is an issue, please do not hesitate to contact me with your concerns. There can be a resolution to this situation, as long as communication channels are open.
As for you, the user, this means that If you care about a thread, you must save it yourself or on archive.is. We will NOT have a copy of it!
