Exhentai/E-hentai is rumored to be kill VERY soon.

Now is a good time to backup your favorite stuff.

I've heard that Switzerland is opening it's digital gates to hentai sites that have recently been displaced by the Netherlands porn ban.

However I am assuming that the ExHentai admins will do no such chore and just shut down the site for good.

My main site for porn collections? First Tumblr, now this. Finding porn is easy. But this is where I go to find porn comics, many of which I would probably never have even heard of without it.

I'm gonna need a source on that. There's NO way that e-hentai is going down without a fight.

tenboro is a fuck that won't pass the reigns.

sadpanda has a shitload of autistic network wizards, programmers, and mods that browse that would happily keep it afloat in one way or another and it could easily be handed off to other big groups. Hell I'm sure a lot of translator groups would pick it up and keep the torch going. It's not something unusual with private trackers idk why it's gotta be so hard for him. It's perfectly acceptable to want to get out but let it keep going.

I'm really hoping it's just another scare, but better safe than sorry.

check /h/ on 4chan it's going down tonight. The admin cucked out to the government. They changed the laws so lolis and the like are illegal now. Save your shit quick via torrents.

Seems more likely that they'll only purge the loli stuff rather then a full shutdown.

Found this on the site from who I guess is the head admin. Doesn't look like the shut down is soon, unless I missed something somewhere else.

"As some of you already know, I have been considering retirement from this site for some time due to a persistent tendon injury that makes it impossible to spend any extended time in front of a computer. This is why the last Galleries update took over a year to complete, and why there's been no other updates to the rest of the site for almost two years. Still, the site has been operating normally even though I've only been able to put in the bare minimum work to keep it running, mostly thanks to the staff and the community in general.

Unfortunately, recent legislative changes in the Netherlands, confirmed by our host, has made it impossible to keep the status quo going. While it may have been possible to move the necessary servers to some other country with more lenient laws, at this point in time it's probably a game of whack-a-mole, so even if I wanted to attempt it, the aforementioned tendon injury makes it impossible for me to play that game.

As such, certain changes have already been made, as you are all already aware of.

EH itself will continue operating at least until the end of 2020 unless anything unexpected happens, and possibly indefinitely beyond that. While I'm not really that interested in running a neutered site on a personal level, and considering the tendon injury and inevitable rioting that will take place, it is not unlikely that no more development will take place and that I will retire at that point - however, I do recognize the importance of this site, so the ultimate outcome here has not been settled, and will depend on a number of factors.

In the event that I retire, it has not yet been decided whether the existing staff will attempt to have a full successor established or whether it will be left to the existing mirror sites, but regardless of the outcome, I would arrange to have some sort of permanent archive hosted indefinitely.

Note that this is not as easy as "just make a torrent available", as the source image files alone weigh in at over 50 TB."

E-Hentai seems to still be alive and well, for what it's worth.

Exhentai stuff still shows up on sites like nhentai. I figure they will eventually permanently remove it, though.

Nhentai only archives doujins and still has only maybe 20% of what Exhentai does.

All those artist/cg/game/custom galleries are gone.

From what I've heard, exhentai was the immediate shutdown, E-hentai only has until the end of the year before it goes, too. Of course, this is just hearsay, but from the same people who said exhentai was going down.

What legislative changes? Like no lolicon or something?

>>3273
Yeah, I think it had to do with Loli/shota content and what could be interpreted as pedophilia, leading to censorship/shutdown.

69635 No.3275

Okay so let's move on….. What sites would you all recommend now? Most if not all of EXs stuff can be found elsewhere even if it's not all the same place. So please post suggestions for doujinshi, game cg, Western, ect.

If you got good suggestions for any of that please provide.

I heard it wasn't so much a change in laws, but a change in interpretation.

>>3275
You can find doujinshi, manga, and cgs on other sites yes, but there was a lot of custom stuff that only existed on sadpanda.

a6210 No.3277

>>3273

That would be my guess. I don't really know though.

Laws change all the time, fucks things up for others even when they aren't doing anything wrong.

And annoys the shit out of me because as crude as this is, I'm just looking to get my rocks off.

And as long as I can get pregnant/various kinks hentai of my favorite characters, I'll be happy.

But I don't think E-Hentai will ever actually shut down, if anything the owner will probably have someone take over and let them continue on.

ccdaf No.3278

anybody looking to preserve? I'm working on getting wget to collect all the "pregnant + english", "pregnant + korean" minus "Game CG and misc". I figure that's narrow enough to actually be able to store it (god damn massive game cg files), yet broad enough to get most of the pregnancy content on e-hentai. Only working with an extra 500gb on my shitty system, but I still feel the need to preserve our little section of e-hentai.

from what I can gather, ya need to traverse the site by changing the url based on the pages like "e-hentai.com/whateverthefuck/ {1…#availablepages}. Also e-hentai deeeeefinitely has an "access too fast" ban. ya'll wanna use "–wait INTERVAL" to avoid that.

This helped a lot with setup. Just ignore the parts where archive.org talks about identifiers:

https://blog.archive.org/2012/04/26/downloading-in-bulk-using-wget/

all the other information was just googling around. these are good too:

>Ya'll wanna start a thread on e-hentai preservation?
So, there are already works going into place on trying to bring it back.

A guy over at https://pleasedontlookhere.xyz/chadchan has ~600tb of the site on tape drives that he's planning on using to get back some of what was lost. But it's not going to happen overnight.

http://alexandria.exhentai.moe/ Is the biggest project to restore the old content I have seen crop up after spending hours lurking.

Right now everything is in full panic mode, but some of the smoke is clearing. I'll post more when I find it.

406dc No.3280

>>3278
Well anything related to birth I have like 80-90%+ of everything english translated and a shitload of artist CGs. (thank god I datahoard) I'm just waiting for when something that looks more official than alexandria.exhentai.moe but anyone uploading there I applaud their efforts.

>>3279
>600tb tape backup
wtf did this dude just scrape the whole site every 6 months for the last decade? I was reading from posts on 4ch/h/ that sadpanda was only about ~50TB for everything

b8d7b No.3281

>>3280
Seriously, the fuck? How do you get 600tb bout of that site? Should be like… about 100mb per gallery average, time 25 galleries per page, times 19000 pages. Thats like 50tb, so max I'd guess 80tb as the real number. Nothing to shake a stick at, but still not 600tb.

No idea what the real numbers are or if the guy is made of bullshit. Everything between 50TB to ~1PB has been tossed around. No point in speculating, I'm just posting what I find that might not be complete BS.

In other news, alexandria has download functionality now, so that might help.

https://discordapp.com/invite/8azGtKv Is the discord for people trying to make a backup of everything. If anything, the #info channel has some tools and links to get stuff.

For anyone who didn't know already, there is http://www.tsumino.com/ https://nhentai.net/ and https://sukebei.nyaa.si/ to help fill the void until something manages to replace ex. Just make sure you have ublock (or something like it) and all your software is up to date. Viruses are still a thing.

Probably stay away from https://oppaiti.me I got in without much issue, but it doesn't really cater to our tastes.

Well, back to starring into the screaming bucket of worms that is 4chan… I'll keep digging until I find more or get bored.

58d4f No.3284

>>3283
50TB-100TB sounds accurate to me. The majority of sad panda was probably greyscale jpegs, so the determining factor is image resolution. Also, gallery torrents sometimes have more content than just the images.

27af7 No.3285

>>3284
There is also the CG and art book stuff to account for. Some of those galleries were over 1GB in size.

Ether way, Until a rebuild project is deemed complete or Tendonbro hands over the keys, no one will know for sure.

I'd like to hope it's as small as 50TB, but whoever takes over this project is going to need more free space than I've ever had my hands on. As well as a place to keep it all from pesky law enforcement.

ccdaf No.3286

>>3285
oh without a doubt there are big files, but they are heavily outnumbered, which is why I averaged 100mb per gallery when most greyscale doujins are like 10. Out of the 19k pages, game cg + image set are 1600.

problem is, 50 is still probably an underestimation for a full site copy, because there are multiple resolution options per gallery, plus the thumbnails, site assets, the forum, hentaiverse, tag storage, etc. If somebody announced its gonna be 100-150, I wouldn't be surprised by how off I was.

buuuut for people who are harvesting, if they can figure out a command line to only take the thumbnail page and every full size page in the gallery, for every gallery, and leave out the rest, they'd probably come up with about 50-80.

406dc No.3287

>>3286
As long as you have the source images, making different res images isn't a big deal. Text is really small with proper compression and most of it could realistically be compressed pretty highly. The site is pretty barebones as far as other assets go. Most everything is CSS.

Whoever makes a new site is gonna need a lot of storage but given the overarching reach of the site it's not impossible to cobble together considering all the people this issue touches.

It works on the base site.

No, no issue for me. Maybe try clearing your cache or the cookies for the web site (the latter will force you to log in again)?
