ITT: We all rebuild /comfy/ together!
First things first; we have a raw archive of /comfy/ saved from back in June 2022. There are five, ~500MB pieces to it here:
Download all 5 archive files into a single directory, then they'll need to be reassembled together again.
-For UNIX, you can concatenate the pieces together thus:
cat comfy.7z.* > comfy.7z
Then, expand the full archive out locally:
7z x comfy.7z
-For Windows, just use the 7zip program (it deals w/ multipart, ie '.001' files, automatically)
The basic order of business here is for you, Anon, to download and reconstruct your own local copy of the archive of /comfy/ to your local machine. This consists of thread directories with their raw HTML & JSON files. All the associated media files for any given thread are under it's 'media' subdirectory. These are the raw original files, as provided by anon.cafe to the /robowaifu/ BUMP
software over the Internet, and organized by threads.
The simple idea here is to work through the old board, thread-by-thread, post-by-post, restoring both the texts of the post, as well as the files (images, etc.) themselves for that post -- by hand
. It's a tedious, autistic process (and it's also how we rebuilt /robowaifu/ after the 8ch debacle). If that sounds like something that you'd like to be a part of then sweet! Sign up right here & now Anon!
We need anons to manually copy paste these old posts/images back onto /comfy/ again! Just pick a thread from the archive, start a new thread here
for it, and begin working away. Simple as. Also, pay careful attention to relink the old crosslinks/quotes to point to the new post's numbers instead.
Hopefully, someone might eventually devise an appropriate automated mechanism to: parse through these files and either a) convert the entire thing "into a LynxChan 2.5.14 database" (>>>/meta/16085
), or b) walk through the archive material as-is and post it here in an automated fashion (ie, with a custom bot). Who knows?
Till then, we must work by hand with what we have.
If you know of a thread you wood really, really wood, like to see restored (and you're also willing to work hard to accomplish it) then Just Do It! :)
. No point in crying over spilled milk Anons, this is what we have to work with. It's way, way
better than nothing so let's all roll up our sleeves together and rebuild the board we love!
Copy Paste Restorers FTW
