FAQ & Information

FAQ & Information


arch.b4k.co is an unofficial 4chan archive where content from certain boards is archived indefinitely in a read-only format.
It is not affiliated with 4chan itself in any way. All content archived here is stored as it was publicly available on 4chan.

Note: This archive was started after the death of archive.moe as a temporary archive for /v/ (one of the boards that no other archive picked up) and some of the boards I visit regularly. It was never meant to be a permanent archive, mostly because my resources are very limited. Don't expect it to still be alive tomorrow.


We can be reached at [email protected] or on the /meta/ board.

Reporting & Content Removal

All posts can be reported to request the removal of the post or the attached file, either by using the "Report" button on the top right of each post or sending us an email containing a direct link to the post in question. Keep in mind that this is not 4chan, so 4chan's rules for content removal do not apply here.

Valid reasons for post/media removal:

  • Illegal content (yes, that means CP)
  • Copyrighted content
  • Personal information posted by someone other than the individual in question

In the case of obvious illegal content, a simple report stating this will suffice. The file in question will be removed from our server as soon as possible and prevented from appearing in the archive again in the future. For copyrighted content or personal information, please provide as many details about why the content should be removed, preferably via email so that we may contact you with questions if needed.

Full Image Storage

At the moment there are no plans to store full images due to storage space, bandwidth and moderation concerns.
This might change in the future.

Archiving More Boards

If there's a board that you think should be added to this archive, you can try requesting it on /meta/.
Please avoid requesting new boards without a good reason (such as it not being archived anywhere else).
High-traffic (such as /b/) and file-focused (such as /gif/) boards are very unlikely to be added.

Ghost Posting

Ghost posting is not enabled and will not be enabled in the future.
