I came. Hats off, coder(s); this is just the sort of thing I'd been hoping for.

Does that "still in progress" mean the archiving is actually taking place now, or that the feature is still being coded?

Also, you might want to change "ALL" to "INVERT" to use the more commonplace name for that feature.

I think I still have it on my other computer somewhere. Give me a couple days.

After it's done, some system of user ratings by which to be able to sort them could be nifty.

It will come down hard and hit the board like the fist of an angry god.

Right, I forgot that some of the writers and their followers here get so uppity and frustrated over the littlest things.

Parts of "A Scarlet-Stained Memoir" can't be accessed for some reason. Any idea why the links are broken, or when they come back up?
No. 5976
That would be because they haven't uploaded the backup copy yet, and the original threads exceeded the board's memory.

Speaking of which, you guy DID make a copy of those threads that got knocked off after the archive went up, RIGHT?

UPDATE: All of the old threads I had saved have been restored to the site in archived format (no posting, no fullsize images). Let me know if any links are broken in the story list.

Next up:
Automatically archiving threads that get pushed off (it's done manually for now, so some threads may go missing temporarily)
Adding all story info to the database and using it to generate the story list (would make more frequent updates possible)
No. 6165
A little late, but it needs said: this is awesome. Rereading old stories is a million times more convenient when all the >> links work.

Having only thumbnails is still a bit of a downer, though, especially considering that the most interesting pictures (drawfag art and author-drawn maps and such) can't be IQDB'd. When the archiving process is automatic, could you consider making it save full size images as well?
No. 6224
This is probably not the correct place to ask this question, but I don't know where else to ask honestly. I've noticed occasionally that for stories that have been archived that sometimes one of the archived threads will not show anything, only an Error 404 message. For instance Landlord of Mayohiga thread 4 is showing an error 404 message. Why is that? Is it temporary?

As I've said before this might be/is probably the wrong thread to post this, but I don't know any other troubleshooting thread, for lack of a better term.

Sweet, thanks brah.

As it says at the top, archival isn't automatic yet. That thread was pushed off the board and hasn't been processed for archival yet. I'm hoping to finish setting this up by the end of the month.

UPDATE: Major improvements. Page is now statically generated from the site database, so updating it will be a hell of a lot easier.

Thread archival is next priority.

What would you call a year-long hiatus? Abandoned? One of those two terms is more appropriate to my stories than "sporadic" at this point.
No. 6307
I usually have that for authors with a history of updating after long absences. Basically it means "maybe tomorrow, maybe never, who knows". I should probably come up with some criteria for moving it to "stalled" though.

"Abandoned" is when the author's explicitly said they aren't going to continue the story (or they're done with THP altogether) instead of just disappearing, which is unfortunately rare. Same for "hiatus", the author has to actually say they're setting the story aside but plan to continue it later.

In other words, if you want an accurate status on your story, tell people what the fuck is going on. Please.
