4chan section of the YS Archives is now inducted into the Stanford Digital Repository

Yesterday on 12/17/2013 a very important piece of 4chan history has been inducted on a website. But not just any 4chan history, but six years of 4chan history from 2007 to 2013. The 4chan section of the Yotsuba Society Archives is now available at the Stanford Digital Repository, at Standard University in California.


RIP Yotsuba Society Archives March 2011 - 8/29/2013

It is with sadness that the Yotsuba Society Archives is closed and will remain closed for the long-term foreseeable future. On 8/29/2013 we were given a notice from Dreamhost that I have 48 hours to remove the entire archives of the site or they will terminate the entire account hosting the site. It was an immediate ultimatum, no opportunity to negotiate or to do anything. Sadly, while they have an unlimited policy, the have a provision against any archives for any reason. It took me days to delete the entire archives which it took me previously an entire week to upload on Late 2012.


The Imageboard World 2 – The Chanverse at Katsucon 19 Presentation

On Sunday at 3am, I finally had my panel for Katsucon 19. Despite the fact that I only had few people going to the panel and a three phone calls by a known group of cyberyobs, it was relatively quiet despite the new information featured in the thread. But there was something that made my panel a lot better: A /sp/artan tripfag known as The Brotherman from 4chan who was originally a ot/a/ku came to the panel, who talked about the 2010 incident. No not the Otakon 2010 incident, but the 2010 incident around the South African world cup.


The Imageboard World 2 – The Chanverse at Katsucon 19

For third time in a row in Katsucon, I’m personally pleased to announce that we are back with the third panel that Yotsuba Society has held in an anime convention. The panel will be a lot detailed (and enjoyable) than the previous panel. Not only will we update you with what happened after the last panel, we will give you more expanded information on not only 4chan, but the English chanverse, and the international chanverse, especially the large and unknown Russian chanverse of 2ch.hk as well.


A Special Message Regarding Our "Hibernation"

It’s a long time since I’ve made a new update. I’ve been through a lot of shit lately with school and family. But I still have not forgotten about the website. The IRC still there, and I get the occasional email from a fan or a oldfag who approaches what I do. Even though this site has been in hibernation since we were forced to move out of our shared server and into a new server where I have to upload everything. Sadly due to a fault due to a rush of resources the front page is not available for viewing until now.


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE– Yotsuba Society Releases Archives of Various Imageboards

The Society for the Study and Preservation of Yotsuba Channel

Yotsuba Society is pleased to release archives of four Western Imageboard websites which were collected from 2010 to 2011. Some of the threads date back from 2009, and for all intents and purposes rare and hard to find. The boards range from railway discussion to anime/general otaku subjects to general random discussion. The boards that the archives have to offer are as follows:


Yotsuba Society News Update

It’s been a few months and already we are making progress with the site. Staff additions, a slow but knowing userbase on the YS boards (even if it’s only one post or two per week), the updating of the YSchan software, and the steady start of the YS Archives. It’s truly amazing that since I’ve posted my first article on Amezou World that the site became known to the imageboard community. The site was first launched as a imageboard because the front page, archive, and the wiki was not ready yet.
