If I wanted a thread deleted from the /lit/ archive on warosu, how would I go about it? Is there an official admin to ask?I have old texts of mine published there, from years ago, and those sadly count as "published" (meaning they are not permitted for literature contests). Is there anything I can do, other than hoping the archive goes up in flames tomorrow?
>>3798183All archives have a contact form or e-mail, but it's usually for DMCA takedowns, reporting illegal content and removal of personal information.Give it a try with a convincing argument.
>>3798296I assumed so, but I don't find any contact e-mail for warosu.org. Best I can find is a bug-report-function, but that doesn't really help me.
>>3798336most domains have the admin address set as firstname.lastname@example.org, if not usually all incoming email is forwarded to the real admin addressapparently warosu's address is email@example.com
>>3798366Thanks man, that could help me out a lot. I'll give it a try.
>>3798296>>3798183If you own it you can dmca it. Make it look official. Don't play nice. Scare them into listening
>>3798399Well, I can't really prove it, as I don't have it published anywhere else.
>>3798183Warosu's admin doesn't care about emails. Your best bet'll be to report it and hope he accidentally deletes it.
>>3798592I think on warosu you can only report images, and only if they contain CP.
>>3798183>THE /lit/ archiveI'm sure there's more than one. You'd have to ask for a takedown for every single one of them.
>>3799564Well if I search lines of the poems I posted on google, the only thing that immediately shows up is warosu.
>>3800153You could drown it out by posting similar lines on a few boards till it doesn't show up untill page 3 or something.What really is the chance that somebody is going to deep-dive for every submitted story in an effort to disqualify somebody?
>>3800191I assume they will atleast google every poem once, these contests are pretty hell-bent on the whole "no published works" rule.And if I posted similar lines, it will just result in my poems being even more visible. I would need to use the exact same phrasing to drown that stuff out, so I really doubt that would be any benefit.
>>3800236But unless it's the title or the first line how likely would it be to find?Do they run some program to...I just remembered there are a few sites that search for plagiarism.https://duckduckgo.com/?q=plagiarism+searchTry a few, maybe they don't scour the archives of mongolian basket weaving forums.Good luck.
>>3800243I doubt they will be that sloppy when checking for online publishing, because yeah, there are plenty of tools like that. It's not like all poems are always instantly recognizable by their first line.But I will give it a try. Thanks for the encouragement, anyway.
