Reminder: /v/ full images are only stored temporarily, so save them while you can.
20-01-20: Maintenance is complete, images should load significantly faster now.
There will be some planned maintenance downtime soon. Shouldn't last more than 1 hour.
You really do have it all in the palm of your hand. With fireden basically dead at this point. Do you have any plans to extend the function of the /v/ archive with images and search?
I do have some plans for this. If they don't work out, at worst I'll have to offload images to
or something until someone else steps up to store them.
This is a bit more complicated though, because it would require a new server to accommodate the RAM requirements. Maybe one day.
Remember that you can still search for older posts on fireden via tor (ydt6jy2ng3s3xg2e.onion)
I was in this thread and I know for sure this thread is missing a few posts
Nope, just connection issues. Happens sometimes.
Hey, if wanted to make a personal archive for a few boards, how much TB would it have? Mainly for /v/ and /vg/. /v/ because it's to fast and have too much traffic and /vg/ because of images (since none is archiving them).
Hey, if I* wanted to make a personal archive for a few boards, how much TB would it need*?
To store full images for /v/ alone, you will need about 2.5TB per year. /vg/ is probably not too far from that.
I have the space for it then, I plant to use this
, but I don't know how to run it...
Hey, did something serious happen? b4k was down for few hours yesterday and today.
Hey, how it's going with the options to store /v/ full images?
Also, I'm having this problem. I use spookyx with the option of delayed load checked so the threads load the thumbnails instead of the full images, but now that I'm trying to save some treads with the full images, they instead show the thumbs, the full images doesn't load (the option delayed load is checked off), this only happens in
, the other archives does,t have this problem.
Thank you for the offer, but we are currently not accepting donations. Consider donating to other archives like desu instead.
Still can't give a definitive answer.
This archive does things slightly differently than other archives when it comes to images (such as lazyloading thumbnails) so issues like that are expected, nothing I can do about it.
Also, please don't use extensions that attempt to load every full image in a thread at the same time. This is harmful to archives.
Better idea: full years-back text search function for /v/ and /vg/ (I care more about the text posts than the pics tbh) and nuke /mlp/ entirely (nothing of value would be lost)
You probably think you're real smart, don't you? But no, that's not how it works.
It has been said before and I'll say it again: /v/ and /vg/ dwarf most other boards to the point where every other board could be removed from this archive and absolutely nothing would change.
And besides, providing search is a problem because it requires very large amounts of RAM, deleting boards that don't even have search enabled does not help.
Why does any word shorter than three characters get omitted from search? Even if you use quotation marks for a phrase containing a word less than three letters, it will act as if the word wasn't there at all.
Because the minimum word length for search was set to 3. It has been that way since 2015 because it supposedly makes search take up less resources, but I never put much thought into it.
I've lowered it to 2 for now.
I've noticed sometimes, when searching for threads made recently as in the past 15 hours sometimes they don't show up
i.e. attempting to looking up
using the search system either by entering in "what's the /v/erdict" + opening threads or just entering in Control in the subject line and it still doesn't show up
This has happened several dozen times but that's one specific example, like there's a delay in which threads can be searched up, but other times I can immediately search up posts made just a few seconds ago on /v/
>>250 >>251 > https://arch.b4k.co/v/image/imagenum.ext
I've updated this redirect to work with newer images as well.
The URL used by 4chan X is
which is not working for me.
The 4chan X image endpoint is intentionally disabled due to the massive amount of requests it gets.
Hullo. Just dropping by to thank you for adding search functionality. Haven't been around for a while so I'm most likely late to the party but whatever.
>>254 >The 4chan X image endpoint is intentionally disabled
ah fuck, guess I'll have to do it like this anon from now on then
fireden doesn't have /v/ anymore
better prepare yourselves
Thank you for your hard work, it's nice to have a place where I can keep track of my own posts!
>>229 >contacting Faggotden to give a better shit >getting a single response
good fucking luck
that's still a dumb excuse, /v/ always had that shit plus the other time Bui bombed 4chan with cub spam
not to mention that the archive is automated to vaporize the cheese pizza content per report/MD5 familiarity
you're still obligated to clean out the CP and you got a lot of time to do that.
your ISP aren't robots like the shitheads that kicked Tumblr out of the google store
Fireden not removing /tg/ instead (because 4plebs is more stable) is a mistake
I'm not even mad
what's the point if this place doesn't have search nor support from any extension forks/other archives to hold off traffic?
i hoped for an archive that could carry /v/ for everyone and save public backups in case it goes kaput for what fuck ever even the Archived.moe guy promised to open up searches for super-active boards if he gets another giant hard drive to implement just go back into hiding if you will.
This archive exists because I want it to. Back when it was created there was no /v/ archive at all. It also had search but I had to disable it because the search backend's RAM usage consistently went up as the database got bigger (/v/ alone has at least 42 million posts archived, can't give an exact number because counting very large tables on InnoDB is extremely slow).
I want a reliable archive to exist.
is down quite a lot (like right now) and archived.moe is an "all boards" archive and those usually don't last, so the only option left is to run one for myself.
Nobody's forcing you to use it, so I don't see why you're so upset. Actually, riddle me this: if running an archive with search is as easy as you describe it, why don't you do it yourself?
this post didn't age well
especially after 4tan and fireden died
fireden never responds to emails and stop giving a shit ages ago
is the last bastion we have now and the dedicate and generous people to archive /v/ is running low
remember Deniable.Plausiblity, remember Foolz's secret /v/ archive you had to access via password or IRC
>continuing to archive /mlp/ and /vp/ is redundant and therefore useless
>search some old /v/ post >"Sorry, this board does not have search enabled."
Literally what is the point of boards like /mlp/ and /vp/ even getting archived to the extent it is when it is obvious that something like /v/ needs more attention instead of wasting resources on those good for nothing boards.
Because /v/ uses up 10x the resources these boards do, retard.
then maybe someone with the resources should just archive /v/ and /vg/ (and nothing else) complete with full search functionality
(also fuck /mlp/, any site archiving that shit is wasting resources by definition)
> Search only goes back a few months and images will not be permanent because they're huge uhhh I hope this changes now
>>228 >>231 >>232
remember this is "his" archive and originally just archived /mlp/ /vp/ and /g/ at first
It seemed that I can't search anything with just one word. I however need to find a reference to /o/ in /jp/. Why?
You can search with one word, you just can't search with words shorter than 3 letters. This is done to make search indexes smaller.
Could you update the iqdb image search link to https? The site supports it now.
I would but I REALLY don't like messing with Foolfuuka's code (especially themes)
I recommend using HTTPS Everywhere, it has rules for both
Google search links should also link to
instead of just
Will you add ghost to any of your boards? I don't like archived.moe and warosu does not have ghost enabled on /jp/.
I can't search /jp/, it says "Whoops, something went wrong."
>inb4 Warosu I like Warosu, but Fuuka can't search things that is only one letter short.
Should be fixed now.
Keep it up b4k.
Feel free to let us know if you need anything, #bibanon on
Warmest Regards & Happy Holidays,
there's a problem with thumbnail displaying on browsers other than chrome, for example firefox or opera. op looks fine, but all replies to it don't show anything but empty space where a thumbnail should go.
i'm guessing it has something to do with the lazyload code not working right. it doesn't turn data-original into src, so nothing's displayed.
I was using something relatively new in the lazyload code (NodeList.forEach) that apparently only works on chrome and the very latest version of firefox.
It should work on all browsers now.
well shit. Fireden disabled the search.
any other archive that has search enabled?
>Fireden's backend has been down for a week now >Google ain't finding shit
>>190 >tfw fireden search is wonky again >can't keep up with the new /v/ threads again
someone just revive vidya.moe/deniableplausibilty already
if anyone going to keep archiving /v/ posts, there should be a /v/ only archive or just /v/-/vg/-/vr/.
also, Archived.moe has most of the oldest /v/ posts there.
Fireden's search is working but their indexes aren't being updated so recent posts aren't showing up on it.
Your best bet is to just send them an email or something and hope they fix it.
>>192 >Your best bet is to just send them an email or something and hope they fix it.
>tfw fireden never messages back
I emailed the admin earlier today to delete my personal information posted without my knowledge from the archive. Have you eceived the email? I'm already getting a unwanted emails of harassment and it's getting out of hand Please delete it as soon as possible and let me know
Nevermind, you deleted it. Thank you so much! I'll be more careful next time, promise
>RebeccaBlackTech went down >Search isn't allowed on /g/ J U S T Hey admin, what's the reason for the search being off on /g/?
/g/ is also available on Warosu, if you are wondering.
bruh, it's back up.
sometimes i wish there was some other backend universal foolfuuka search engine so we can search for posts without chewing up server limits here.
ton of posts that aren't viewable at fireden other than here. :(
Fireden works again!
Fireden fucked their certificate up or somthan.
Works on my machine™
Fireden uses cloudflare certs so it was probably a temporary thing.
