[#] Comment system update, impending purge
04:59am UTC - 11/29/2013
Hi all, it's been a while. I never did complete the purge I began in my last update, but with Black Friday and nothing much to do, I'm going to likely spend the majority of my time tomorrow removing the remaining crap from 2013 and putting up downloads for the archives. It's been a while coming, and it'll be nice to make sure at least someone else has a copy. I'm still likely going to do it via torrents, but we'll see what's easier.

Also there was a ton of spam showing up in the comments, so I went through and cleaned it all out with the help of new moderation tools that I'll likely never need again. You're going to have to solve a very difficult riddle to post from now on!

I think the archive system is broken.

Yeah, the archive broke, although it wasn't anything I changed; 4chan has started throwing out requests without a valid useragent string (your browser's ID, e.g. "Mozilla/5.0"). I added a useragent string and it's working again. Special thanks to friedrice for bothering me in IRC and alerting me!

I came here to spam at you.

Not sure the spam test is enough, but it will probably help.

Are you planning on a new archive purge anytime soon? The amount of "ironic shit-archival" is reaching critical mass.

Could help if you provided some examples of shit archivals.

In the first three pages alone we have no less than ten threads that have been deliberately archived as a way of saying "hey everyone! Look at how terrible this shit is! Am I not cool for pointing it out?". Pearls like "Herpaderpa roleplay", "Faggot /a/ Quest"(in three parts) and "This is another thread that could have been fun but you managed to fuck it up". And let's not start talking about the tags.

Quick heads up, we got someone intentionally proxy downvoting Waifu Quest and bragging about it on /tg/

Also, I just noticed that Live With Your Shame asshole is back and in full swing, and some decent threads are getting downvoted to hell just because he archived them.

Can't you just IP range ban the guy and be done with it? In fact, block everyone who tries to do an "ironic" archival. If they hate it so much, why try to immortalize it on here anyway?

They "immortalize" it with the wrong tags and description so it will get downvoted. It's their way to think that they've won the "argument" about the threasd's quality.

Lord Lic, thanks for all the hard work. I see you are looking for someone to have a backup of the archive stuff. Does that mean paying for a server, or would my own cloud solution be enough ?

I think a cloud would be fine. Again, I suggest shunting all quests off to a seperate archive- there's enough of them to warrant it, and it would help suptg shed its reputation as "only good for looking up quests". Plus, most of the troll archivists focus on quest threads, so it should fix that problem too.

I'd be grateful if you'd take down your pirated PDF of my book Heart of Ice. It's my copyright and, although I sometimes make it available online for free, that doesn't mean I'm throwing it open for everyone to do that. It's available in a print and Kindle edition, and if you buy the print edition you get the Kindle version for free. And we're currently working on an app version - folks will have to buy that if they want it. Sorry, but us authors got to make a living somehow.

22 Thanks for the site

Any chance that .webm files will be supported soon? They're currently breaking when attempting to open from archive. Thanks regardless!
