Booru Backup and scrubbed materials
With the upcoming loli/shota purge coming up, some people want to preserve the content before it is gone, so here is where you can purge off-site links. I'll also be posting the MEGA of scrubbed materials when I am done making it here, so keep your eyes peeled.

This is a backup of the booru with all it's content up to July 26.

Why just up to July 26?

That's when the backup was made. Some people had predicted something like this would happen and took preemptive measures.

Thanks for the link, Misha. Your preservation efforts are greatly appreciated. It's gonna be interesting to see how this 'purge' plays out.

Cos no such law exists to my knowledge. I recall that its protected under artistic freedom providing it is not based off a real person. That why I think the booru.org staff got hacked (or they are scummy liars considering some boorus still have obvious ads despite the boorus) But like I said, there is still allthefallen, the successor site to Lolibooru to those who still wanna save and transfer all the loli/shota.

What to expect in the Pastebin links
DISCLAIMER: These are just my results. Your mileage may vary.)

-The Pastebin files seem good.
-The seven files' total size after download is 26.9GB.
-WinRAR was able to extract 52,582 files.
-Unzips to about 28GB.
-I got 367 errors during extraction, most likely due to the length of the file names. (I'm using Windows 10. Be sure to enable long file names to reduce the amount of errors. You can also rename them within WinRAR to retrieve them properly.)
-For those who obsess about archiving, he vast majority of files include the tags, however, roughly 3-5% of the total don't have tags. Some artists, characters, references, etc. are easily recognizable, but some are not. So be sure to grab your favorite images/artists by hand (or use a 'Booru extractor').

Thank you to everyone involved in the upload

They can make way more money with Playboy Style Porn at End of the Day. The site will slow down not die & It'll end up looking like "Gravity Falls" porn (Nothing near the Original design of the charters) though most of the Gravity Falls porn artist's are semi-SJWs to. At least we are not in the Fairy Oddparants-Butch Hartman & site mod warriors "Kill all the porn I wanna sue you era yet"

Extraction Update
If you use 7z to extract the files, you can overcome the file name length limitation. I extracted all 52,949 files successfully.

Does this archive also contain associated "child posts"? like follow up pages for comics, alternate versions of images, edits like colors or redraws?

Like how in some images in the upper area it says "This post has child posts. Child posts are often subsequent pages of a doujinshi, or minor variations of the parent post.".

Were those also archived too, or only the MAIN images that ONLY show up on search? Because last time I checked almost every booru image ripper I tried didn't have the ability to download child posts either.

'Parent/Child Posts' System'

Sadly, as far as I can tell, the answer is no. The archive does NOT contain the subsequent 'child posts' in the file system hierarchy.

For example, let's search the archive for "VS Presents: The Loud House - Nightmares" (a popular Lucy x Lincoln comic by VS that uses the 'Parent/Child post" hierarchy). A search using the keywords "comic vs" only yields the cover of the comic and NONE of the subsequent pages.

To be sure, let's just search the archive for "vs". Again, the comic's cover appears, but no other pages. I even checked the handful of un-tagged images, but didn't find them.

As of writing this reply, the comic has been scrubbed from the Booru :(

I anticipated this problem, so all this week I picked about 40 of my favorite artists/tags and checked every single image for 'child posts' and scooped them up. (a very tedious process)

How? When a Booru image has 'child posts', it appears as a link, 'https:// blah blah blah parent:XXXXX' (<- some number). Let's say we're using the booru image ripper, 'Grabber'. In Grabber, a search for 'parent:XXXXX' will return the parent and all of its 'children'. But this means that you have to manually search, image by image, for them. Not good for artists/tags with many, many pages.

This is why I am against the 'Parent/Child' system and vote for discontinuing it until a better system can be established (I can feel the mods glaring angrily at me, lol). Yes, I understand it is used to organize the images and prevent clutter. However, if it means essentially burying the images, eliminating 'search-ability', and MOST IMPORTANTLY, eliminating any ability to archive the images, then to hell with the system.

My worst fear is that many comics, series, and related images have been lost. I hope I'm wrong. (PLEASE, Mods, tell me I'm wrong!)

TL/DR: 'Child posts' are NOT in the archive. An image ripper can get them, but it's an unbelievably fucking huge pain in the ass to retrieve them. And if they've been scrubbed from the Booru, then it may be too late to get them

The archive is still an amazing collection. Even though it seems to be missing 'child posts', it still contains the majority of all images. Definitely worth the download

I can't believe TLH booru got screwed this badly... And after I donated last year to that stupid patreon thing to keep everything safe...

What the fuck man? Can't we just all collaborate to make our own booru like gelbooru away from this booru.org owning liar slayerduck who likes inventing his own made-up NON-EXISTING laws from the netherlands??

What good is moving to 8ch if we can't tag shit and give appropriate credit to the artists...

Can't we just leave this booru.org shit and host our own servers?

What should have been done is that the admin post should have been ignored.

Seriously, there are numerous boards on booru.org that still have loli/shota stuff and it has not been removed!

Misha, was it you who removed the stuff or did someone else with uber-mod privileges remove it?

If it was you? You got punked unfortunately.

They contacted the staff directly and found out it was a real message.
BUUUT Then they realized Slayerduck (Booru.org's owner) himself runs 2 boorus that have a massive amount of loli/shota thats yet to be deleted so they and a LOT of people is starting to think he's on some bullshit.

If anything the whole situation with the Netherlands is 100% false. The problem is no doubt patreon which is now hosted in the UK where Loli/Shota IS illegal.

Well poop. If that thing about "He runs two Booru's with a massive amount of loli/shota on them!" that is a right load of BS as well.

If we are going to have rules across the entire of Booru.org, they have to be equivalently and equally enforced.

Personally I never understood the whole "Let's ban loli and shota!" from some people. It does not encourage people to offend against a real child, in fact it can help them keep from offending in the real world.

Correction pedos actually DO use drawings to convince kids, but that actually makes them EASIER to catch. Ban loli/shota and it becomes harder to catch them. This was proven in fact and its why many people, even psychologists are against banning it.
