[#] Migration in progress
03:17am UTC - 12/12/2021

If you can read this, you're in the right place!

Update 2021-12-13: Patience please! None of the archive data is lost. It takes a while to unpack ~500GB of shitposts, believe it or not, so the archives are being backfilled by year. 2015 is unpacking right now, as an example, followed by 2014 and so on. You'll get the 'requested URL was not found on this server' generic 404 on most older threads until then. I'll announce when the unpacking is complete; THEN you can start reporting missing threads.

... and please for the love of fuck TELL ME THE THREAD NUMBER WHEN YOU DO GODDAMNIT

Update 2021-12-14: So there's a handful of completely arbitrary threads missing on the new server, but they're safe and sound on the old server. I'm going to write a script to test and rsync every entry in the database to ensure the gaps are filled. In the meantime, go ahead and keep reporting threads, I appreciate it. (PS: For those of you sending messages on Twitter, I'm still banned for a couple days for telling someone to 'fuck off a cliff', which apparently is promoting suicide, so I can't reply to your messages. Sorry!)

Update 2021-12-17: I've found additional problems and fixed them. For instance, there were a lot of threads that didn't get updated permissions after transfer, so they were just 403ing; they should all work now.

I also realized that the new thread schema - /archive/year/threadnum/ vs. /archive/threadnum/ - broke every URL on the internet linking back to the site. Oops! My bad. I added a little .htaccess and PHP magic to properly redirect requests still looking for the old URLs. Your bookmarks and TV Tropes links should work again, hooray!

One of the remaining orders of business is to fix the SSL cert, which I'll do Saturday or Sunday, depending on whether I die in the upcoming blizzard. As usual, if any threads aren't working right, please leave a comment below or contact me on IRC/Discord.

[#] Site Migration Soon!™
09:02am UTC - 11/08/2021

Another year's gone by, and another Axetoberfest gone too soon. Like the previous posts state, we're actually still very much alive, just on IRC/Discord mainly these days. I'm not even sure how many of you will even read this message! Still, it's good to let people know we're still going. It's been... a long time honestly.

Before I start waxing poetic, this is just a notice that we'll be transferring to a new VPS very soon. This shouldn't mean anything to usual archive-goers, but it may mean temporary downtime while the shift is performed. This may include disabling new archive entries for a little while, though I don't expect any extended downtime (and the old server will stay up until the new one is completed, regardless).

In addition to just moving some 14 years' worth of /tg/ over, I also need to rewrite a lot of the site for new PHP versions and such, so that will take time as well. Things might break for a bit after the move, though most of the services on this site have gone away, so again, I'm not sure what might even get noticed. In any event, we'll be on Discord/IRC (the IRC is moving too, so maybe hit Discord first).

Happy Halloween month! We're still around, I just never get around to updating the homepage. Everyone's here for the archives or in our IRC or Discord, anyway! I feel like I should make a more substantial update, but I'm not sure what to say, or to whom I'm writing, so...

It's been a really long decade this year, so I'm just hoping things get better next year, really. In the meantime, join us in the IRC/Discord for AXETOBERFEST activities!

[#] Happy 4th!

I don't have any messages, I just realized the last update was in 2018. We're still here and always active in the IRC if you want to come join us!

[#] 4channel
06:09am UTC - 11/25/2018

... 4channel? ... just... just why.

Uh. Anyway, the... interesting decision to move all of the worksafe boards from to has not apparently impacted the archive, as it was correctly following the redirect between domains. However, to be on the safe side, I've updated the archive to retrieve threads from the new domain. Please let me know in the IRC (preferred) or via email if you see problems with the archival process.

08:15am UTC - 10/03/2018

Don't forget that AXETOBERFEST is going on all month! Join the IRC and join in on the TERROR.

[#] Happy New Year

Happy new year, jerks. Let’s hope 2018 is less terrible, eh?

(it’s going to be worse, isn’t it)

[#] Merry Christmas!
04:43am UTC - 12/26/2016

Merry Christmas, dorks! So it turns out something on 4chan's end changed recently, so images weren't getting pulled down correctly (both /tg/ and /qst/ archives). I spent some time this evening unwinding from a busy holiday by fixing it. (Yes, this is how I relax. DON'T FUCKING JUDGE ME)

So, just wanted to make you aware of it and that I've already fixed it. Most of the threads self-repaired shortly after I made the adjustments, so that was nice. Threads that fell off the boards before I fixed the bug will still be borked, unfortunately.

Anyway, enjoy your various winter holidays!

Welcome to a new and "exciting" review, in which someone seeks me out and asks me to review his Kickstarted RPG, not expecting me to tear it in half for being bad. Welcome to Middenarde! Where everything you're promised in the Kickstarter is false, and the only redeeming part is the art and unintentional comedy.

Part 1: Chargen

Part 2: How to Break Medieval Physics

Part 3: Resurrecting the Dead for Fun and Profit

Part 4: Realistic Combat Means Lots of Rolls

Part 5: Medieval England, Land of Dickshoes

Part 6: Bad Adventure Modules

Part 7: Worse Adventure Modules


[#] New /qst/ Archive
05:59am UTC - 4/28/2016

Well, it finally happened, you maniacs. /qst/ is now a thing.

Until the shitstorm settles, I've created a separate /qst/ Archive to make sure nothing is lost in the transition, if a transition even occurs. Please do not archive shitposts or just downvote everything into oblivion if you don't like it; I'm just trying to help. Take it up with 4chan administration.

[#] New game review: Simple10

My newest review: Simple10

Like most other things I review, it's trash. Traaaaaaaaaash.


[#] Misarchived threads
03:06am UTC - 1/15/2016

Recently, some rapscallions have been deliberately misarchiving threads, mainly quests. Some threads' details are switched, while completely random threads have been added as if they're part of a series. These nefarious individuals have succeeded in wasting tens and tens of my objectively worthless precious minutes fixing the entries. If you're a victim of these ne'er-do-wells, you can either email me or reply to this post, and I'll get around to fixing them eventually.

Please be sure to include the thread number and correct fields (title, description, tags) so I can more rapidly process these requests.

[#] Game Pact 2016
11:07pm UTC - 1/01/2016
Hey, you, nerd. When's the last time you ran a game? In fact, have you ever run a game at all? Or have you only sat around complaining that no GM's would run your favourite system/setting? Or that you keep ending up in terrible Magical Realm situations when you join a game?

Well guess what, it's time to change that.

Sign up for GAME PACT 2016 and be the change you want to see. Run a goddamn game some time this year. Pick a system, pick a setting, pick a time, even if it's a couple of months from now, there are 12 months in 2016 and plenty of time to run something, even if it's just a Maid RPG one-shot.

Me? I'm gonna run Fallout: Florida using the Unisystem system(AFMBE, All Flesh Must Be Eaten, as the base Unisystem game). Do meth, wrestle an alligator, punch a ghoul, punch two ghouls, wake up passed out in a suit of power armor you don't remember owning! It's Fallout: Florida!
