it is with a heavy heart that i must announce that chanarchive.org and 4chanarchive.org are no more. ;_; more details to follow within the next days…
++++ breaking news ++++we are currently working on bringing the archive back up!please hold on for a couple days while we are setting up the server courtesy of encyclopediadramatica.se.++++ breaking news ++++
Yes it is true. Encyclopedia Dramatica is taking responsibility for hosting chanarchive.org, formerly 4chanarchive.org.
We cannot give a tentative date as to when this will all take place, but we can say that it will be happening soon. EDIT: Very soon.
Questions in the comments may be answered.
EDIT: We are doing this because we appreciate the years of entertainment that 4chan and 4chanarchive have brought. If it were not for them, ED would be full of LiveJournal bullshit.
The bottom line is that the Internet needs a site to host chan archives, and there already is one, so why not just keep using it?
