wallbase.cc is a store of wallpapers and other high-resolution media typically scraped from chans' /hr, /wg, and /w boards.

WALL YOUR BASE ARE BELONG TO US. I'm... I'm sorry. I'll see myself out.


Apparently, wallbase's forums have gone down. They are indeed unavailable at http://wallbase.cc/forum. This has prompted some concern that the website may too fade. So far, there has been no announcement of a shut-down.

Work thus far

So far, there is no repo on github and no code provided that I know of. Someone should change that. User arkiver is currently scraping as much as he can, and user godane has done a small portion that is available on archive.org here. Does anyone plan to implement a see-saw instance and tracker? Grabbing gigs and gigs of images can add up pretty quickly.

Site Specifics

The domain implements rate limiting. From my own experience, I seem to recall it being picky about the referrer header at one point too, that a brief examination seems to indicate that may no longer be the case.
