And what stings the most is that /a/ has had their shitposts consistently saved and thrice backed up since 2008. So you can still see /a/ threads filled with posts that could still use memes without consequence.
/co/ has only ever had one archive archiving it at any given time and each one crashes and burns. Currently there are two archives for /co/ being desuarchive and fireden, but only desuarchive has the threads carried over from foolz to moe to storage.
Because of the inconsistent /co/ archives, some anons just took to saving threads themselves, the biggest cache that I know of being the AT drawthreads dating back to September of 2011, but those threads had been persisting for some time before that, that's just when it became apparent that no-ip wasn't coming back and no one was saving all the new art happening.
Nat showed up in those threads sometimes. There was even a thread where she just drew Jake's huge butt over and over again with other anons joining in.
