The former administrator of wakachan.org/azu has provided me the latest available archive of the site data for the old imageboard. The most recent post is dated 12 December 2015. It is available at https://ib.axypb.net/archive/azu/wakaba.html and in the "Archive" link at the top navigation on each page. Feel free to repost images from the archive to this site. Be advised that this is a static backup only without the Wakaba scripts in place, and so post controls and reporting features are disabled.

Regarding the old content, I would like to propose the following. As I stated in the "Welcome Back" thread, the post data from the old Wakaba-based board is incompatible with the current software, but I have received an offer to have the data migrated. The former administrator has provided only the static threads and images. I have requested the database dump that corresponds with them, which is necessary for a migration of the old posts. Upon receipt of this data, I will forward it to a specialist who will then attempt to convert the post data. If successful, all archived posts will be moved into this site. The address of this imageboard will not change.

I have opened a Straw Poll to decide whether to move forward with the data migration. The options are to leave the archived posts in place in a separate area of the website or to attempt to integrate them into this board. Feel free to voice your concerns and reasons for your decision.

I voted no, as threads have always been temporary, and often recreated. I'm convinced that we've migrated enough that no one should feel the need to do that kind of database work. By the end of this year, whether it is done, or isn't done, won't have much effect on us.

I second this vote.

I second that!

84c03a83 No.155

The consensus on the poll is against this proposal. No changes will be made. Thank you for your input.

I was on the fence about it, but ultimately I think not importing the old threads is the way to go. Sometimes a complete refresh can be good.

I usually visit wakachan once a year to see what's news. Just noticed the site seems to be not working. Guessing the owner pulled the plug?

Stumbled upon this place from a google search. What's going on in this thread?

Please see >>1 for more information. In short, Wakachan was shut down as illegal content was discovered on it by the host. It is not known what this content was, but it is likely that it was not uploaded by any regular users with malicious intent. The former Wakachan administration was not interested in reopening the site, so I volunteered to open a new imageboard for the /azu/ community after I was informed of its closure.
