I think there were backups. The admin was offering to put someone in charge of the wiki.

I don't know exactly what happened, but after the site went down for a few days from CP spam or something it seemed like a lot of people never came back, I think there was some proxy limitations put in so less people are posting, don't really know

It seems like he's busy with other things these days, the site has become a bit shoddy over time, wiki was dead pretty much from the start, textboard was getting endlessly barraged by spambots anyway, so no point in bringing those things back really. There is a page that shows the traffic and it works but it's not linked anywhere and I forgot what it was, you have to type the url manually

When we moved to a new host after our short shutdown in March, only the imageboard software was installed. Backups for the Wiki and textboard exist, it's just a matter of finding time and inspiration to go through with the ordeal of reinstalling their respective software, importing databases, etc etc.

>all of the copyrights are out of date.

The copyright info is generated automatically by the board software, I think even the newest release of NPFchan generates the same dates. In fact, there may even be checks throughout the code that prohibit function if it's not displayed exactly as it is now; some old drama from the original Tinyboard dev.

We have busy days and crawl days. Last Saturday we had about 600 posts across the whole site (200 on /b/). The other days averaged at about 150 posts per day.
>when was the admin last heard from?
He was responding to reports and rule violations less than 24 hours ago
>also i checked the front page, the unique posters today and this week is broken.
That's been broken since we upgraded in 2017, even before it displayed incorrect information.

something i dont understand is that if something is broken, why not at the very least remove it? the broken links to the textboard and wiki and with no number next to Unique Posters, it makes the website seem dead/broken.

That's like a post every other minute. It's fast enough to be addicting even.

oh yeah here it is

I have no idea how to read it but it has a graph that seems to do something and there are numbers and some bars that represent something, I think it's amount of posts but I have no idea

Sure it's broken, but the presence of a few dead links isn't exactly crashing anyone's browser or leaking their IP. The amount of work and testing that has to be done - while it may be a 2-minute job for an experienced webdev - just isn't worth the payoff of having two links cleaned from a mostly blank navbar and the homepage which I believe most users don't even visit anyway. That's the honest answer. The optimistic answer is that the textboard, wiki, and public post counter may be fixed in the future so there's no sense doing something just to undo it later.

That's when we were shut down so it may be stuck at that point in time. The mod panel has one that updates in realtime.

I have no idea who is operating the current feels
