Older images may be temporarily unavailable in the next few days due to server maintenance.
Google has the option to search within a site through the operator "site:" then find threads from google instead of on the site itself. Fireden supported this feature thus making the search very proficient since google is handling the search. Are you planning to allow this feature to come in the future or does it involve much more work to be done?
Most of the site won't show up in google because crawling is disabled for threads. Bots like google's were sending too many requests for large threads and wasting CPU time.
What can you search with google that you can't search with the built-in search system?
Google tends to show the amount of posts/authors within a thread usually so you get a sense of how much posts are within the thread. Usually this is a hit or miss but it gives a slight idea if the thread you are about to click on has any posts or it is a dead one for example making it easier to look at recommendation threads or not having to go through dead thread after dead thread.
Although I understand that it would take a toll on the server, it really did make the Fireden archive useful to find specific threads instead of sifting through garbage although since there are search operators here, it does make the searching somewhat decent. Thank you for taking the time to explain. I did not know that such a thing could have an effect on servers like this.
API sends incorrect links: "remote_media_link":"\/\/
\/vg\/1590050994043.jpg" (There is no http/https schema)
Is this a known issue and will it be fixed?
The URL was intentionally set up like that to allow it to automatically use http/https in HTML pages, it doesn't really make sense in the API but foolfuuka doesn't allow setting a separate URL there, it uses the same for both.
But at this point I don't think there's any reason to not use HTTPS so I've changed the URL to reflect that. The entire site should also be HTTPS only now.
Thank you very much! One hack fewer in the code now.
Is there a limit to the /vg/ search? I can't go back farther then a few months
You can't go back farther than August 2019 because there's nothing there. /vg/ was not archived here before that point.
Older posts will be merged at some point in the future.
wht the fuck can't we search on /jp/
why is searching disabled for /g/?
Because there's already an archive with /g/ search.
Could you do what
did and implement search operators of sort? Like excluding threads/posts that include a certain word such as that? Or even the ability to sort threads when searching from most replies to least similar to how it is able sorts the oldest from newest? I think it would be a good addition but I am not one to judge how hard it would be to implement.
No idea what you mean, the search on this archive is exactly the same as RBT's.
>Like excluding threads/posts that include a certain word such as that?
Just add - before a word to do that. Same as rbt.
>oldest from newest
Again, same as rbt, use the "Oldest Posts First" option.
>sort threads when searching from most replies to least similar
This is currently not possible on any archive.
A thread from an hour ago was deleted and won't appear on arch.b4k with it saying it doesn't exist
Is this happening with any other threads?
What's the thread number? Saying "A thread from an hour ago" is kinda meaningless because hundreds of threads are made every hour.
Hey admin, did you know that archived.moe has /v/ database from 2012? Maybe you can ask him and add it here too? It would be cool because search on moe doesn't work.
I am aware, those posts from 2012-2015 are from the archive.moe dump which is publicly available. I already have that and several more dumps (including fireden's entire /vg/ database+thumbs) but merging them all into one is a challenge.
I believe the main database can handle all of it, but search might be a different story. Bigger database = slower and more demanding search, it doesn't scale infinitely.
I'm but a lowly nigger but would it be feasible to keep what you've got in one domain, and have the other archives on virtualized subdomains with comparatively limited specs?
I'd be willing to bet that most people only need the most recent stuff because they're looking for something from only a few days ago, like generals or something they forgot to bookmark or seeing the conclusion to a thread from the other night. They'll demand speed and ease of use. But people searching back half a decade ago are probably doing something more specific/special and would tolerate a slower search, and there would be fewer of them as well both the further you go back and separated by user knowledge of stuff having been likely to have been on fireden (recent, well indexed, representative of modern 4chan culture and board state, useful and up to date information available between the shitposts) or on archive.moe (old, potentially lost, if it's been this long who cares anymore, relics of history, ghosts and shadows of memes long dead)
Howdy, any plans to expand search functionality to include searching for image unix timestamps? I have a timestamp for an image from 2018 and I want to find the post that uses it but it seems like the server only shows the first 3000 results for a specific date, so I can't reach it by just going to the date and time on the timestamp.
>>305 >any plans to expand search functionality to include searching for image unix timestamps
Having a timestamp but not the image file itself or the post number doesn't sound like something that happens often, so I don't think it justifies modifying the search system at this point.
That said, if you post the timestamp(s) I can find the posts for you manually.
Why can't we include single letters in search?
Search has been expanded and now covers the entire database (for /v/, this means everything since 2015)
UH HELLO BASED DEPARTMENT
Bro!! You just posted cringe!! Now you are going to lose subscriber!
>Search has been expanded and now covers the entire database (for /v/, this means everything since 2015) Thanks a lot, admin-san. I'm somewhat relieved due to the fact that I'm no longer required to use TOR now when wanting to fetch an image/thread but also worried since this most likely implies it'll die in the near future. Please don't bite off more than you can chew.
>tfw deleted all your fireden bookmarks just because >now will never be able to find your favorite threads again brb getting the noose
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/
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
I never knew something like this existed, it's so damn useful because I have a habit of letting opened images go 404!
Do other archives have something similar too? I tried to imitate the way it's structured here, but without luck.
On most other archives you can just use the full_image url mentioned here
What does /v/ produce that's even worth archiving?
How can I search for special characters? I want to search for brackets
Not possible, special characters are not indexed.
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.
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
