Feature Request: Archive (11)

1 Name: cyrilthefish!ljAhqzG3aU 2005-02-20 19:38 ID:30QVRUU3 (Replies) [Del]

just wondering if this could be incorporated as an option: instead of pictures being deleted they get moved to an /archive/ directory instead.

you'd need extra config options for this i'd guess (ie. max archive size and so on) but it'd be very usefull

especially as imageboards use insane levels of bandwidth but hardly any diskpace, meaning this feature would be viable on most hosting plans

I've been thinking this would be nice myself, too. I'll put it on the list.

Someone suggested that we torrent images once they expired off the board at the last 4chan Q&A thingy. There's no way that that wouldn't kill our server, but if the archive support moved things into /kako-year-month-week/ or something it would be a good start at it.

Archives are also a good way to justify a pay-service.

*hint hint*

Charging for copyrighted artwork might just be a little bit shaky legally, no?

75+% of all business done is a little bit shaky legally.

The idea of archiving is hereby signed.

Some ideas for what automated archiving in Kareha should be based on:

  • Number of posts in a thread (e.g. closing threads that get 1000 posts)
  • Filesize of a thread (e.g. closing after exceeding 512KB)
  • Some automatism that gets rid of old, dead threads by some kind of formula based on posting frequency of the board & ammount of time without activity in a given thread.

If an automatic archive feature ever gets implemented, there probably should also be an auto-prune feature for Kareha...

Or am I mistaken and confused and such a thing already exists?
