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.
This archive is not affiliated with 4chan itself in any way. All content archived here is stored as it was publicly available on 4chan. Private information for archived posts, such as poster IP addresses, is not and cannot be saved here.
Note: This archive was started after the death of archive.moe as a temporary archive for /v/ (one of the boards that was not immediately picked up by any other archive) 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.
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 most of 4chan's rules for content removal do not apply here.
Valid reasons for post/media removal:
- Illegal content (yes, that means CP)
- Sensitive personal information
- Copyrighted content
In the case of obvious illegal content, a simple report is enough. 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 personal information or copyrighted content, 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
Temporary full image storage is sometimes enabled on some boards. Older images are deleted after some time to free space.
There are currently no plans to set up permanent full image storage due to the massive amount of storage space required.
Temporary images are currently enabled on /v/.
Archiving More Boards
If there's a board that you think should be added to this archive, you can try requesting it on the /meta/ board.
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 is not enabled and will not be enabled in the future.
