Site temporarily down

Site is broken temporarily. Doing everything we can to fix it. Hang tight and things should be back soon.

I will update this post with more info when I have it.


– wiiaboo


As always you can get short updates from us on our twitter (@rule34paheal) and also join our IRC channel on rizon #rule34.

Also cosplay and rule63 are still up so If you need a place to hang out till then, they are available.


Actually I am going to address a few things in the comments.

  1. This is my (Titanium’s) fault.  I tried to enable the Favorites extension.  It apparently conflicted with the scoring system.  Then one of the disks failed.  I honestly don’t know why it screwed things up so royally, but it did.  The disk is rebuilt, but that error remains and apparently it’s more involved than just unchecking the Favorites box.  Wiiaboo and others are working to fix it.
  2. This is not related to money issues.  The extra ads have taken care of that.
  3. This was not a hack or other attack.
  4. We aren’t moving to TPB afaik
  5. The site won’t turn into OhInternet (or will it… muwahahahaha)
  6. Your comments don’t appear right away because the blog things 99% are spam.  I will go through daily and approve non-spam comments.


A few of you have mentioned the Tweet I (Titanium) posted on July 5th.  Based on the info I had then, I thought it would only be a day.  We thought that after the disk was fixed, the error would be easy to resolve.  It wasn’t/isn’t.  We are getting closer.  Please be patient.

In other news, this is a conspiracy to get more users on rule63 and cosplay and to weed out the unfaithful.  The site will run faster with less people… </sarcasm>


Wiiaboo says it will be about 48 more hours.  This is an estimate.  (Posted at 3:00 PM on 11 July 2011)


We’re back!

    Sabes Wiiaboo, eu acompanho o giga crescimento do seu Site e acho que por ela conter mais de 500 mil imagens hentais, nenhum server conseguiria suportar tantas imagens assim, embora o Gelbooru tenha mais de 1 milhão e quase nunca cai ou nunca caiu o server, mas onde o Site é hospedado pode não suportar tantas imagens nela, eu acho.

  12. Castle said,

    July 5, 2011 @ 3:38 pm

    I wondered why the hell I couldn’t get my Rule 34 lately. Like Nick I’m very relieved it’s just temporary. Here’s hoping it’s up again soon.

    While you site admins are at it, work on making site actually fast for a fucking change. It’s so goddamn slow all the time. Pair up with piratebay’s servers or something they got a shitload of space.

    July 5, 2011 @ 9:24 pm

    What happened that made the site “break”? Server overload, or something? As for the rest of you bitching about Rule34 being slow, you shouldn’t be so ungrateful. You’re lucky to even have a place like this. You shouldn’t take such things for granted.

    Anyway, I hope you guys can get the site back up soon. I was starting to worry for a while there too. It’s been down for, what, two days? Three?

  26. DPE said,

    i am glad the site will be back soon is it possible that it was a government hack job it wouldnt be the first time that happened as for hosting issues maybe take a page from psn and ask people with larger harddrives and longterm net time to carry some of the load just my idea

    For Christ sake!!!!! Just let the fucking site die already. it already has enough problem as it is. such as your getting your paypal suspended and putting up shit ads that Im not interested in. Thanks to Adblock Plus >=)
    Second you have a SHIT ton of DNPs in your list which is fucking stupid. I thought the site is suppose to be a repository, not some dumb fucking sonicfag fur site. seriously. just fucking stop fixing it. and just let it fade. then kill yourself because the site sucks due to the fact that IT WAS NEVER FIXED!!!!!

    Why you don´t create a website with every picture zipped on the Tags?
    You can save more memory in your website thanks to the upload files :/
    Or make a Rule Website for Gay’s and other for Chiks and other for other things.
    Believe me this website will be destroy one day, and the people don´t have the chance to get the pictures again.

  49. Jubilation T. Cornpone said,

    July 6, 2011 @ 12:53 pm

    The problem may be related to the database. In shimmie, when you activate the Favorites extension, it creates the user_favorites table and adds a column called favorites to the images table. When you deactivate, by unchecking the box, it does not appear to remove the table or column, it just stops using them.

    So the user_favorites and numeric_score_votes tables both exist in the database. Also the two columns in the image table. I don’t see offhand why that would cause a problem, but I suggest investigating that area.

    This comment is based on the generic shimmie, since I have not seen your custom version.

  50. PewPew said,

    July 6, 2011 @ 1:05 pm

    Phew, I’m happy to hear the site is coming back! I was worried!

    Just too bad it died now. I’m having a lecture of fanart in a big con soon and I would have wanted to look more example pictures of erotic fanart for it from Rule 34. But, the main thing is to get the site back.

    Thanks for the info!

  52. Matt said,

    July 6, 2011 @ 1:58 pm

    You could instead of donations just ask people who have a shitload of RAM to offer some of that. I would, but my computer is “7 years old”*, maybe more, (idk my dad bought it fucking yonks ago) and my laptop isn’t really mine, (again, my dad’s) it’s new and it came with a £499 price tag. *slow as a retard with a plank sticking through he/she/its head.

    Don’t worry about it Titanium, I still think you’re the best. I’m just glad it will be coming back. Thanks for all the effort you put in on this site. Everyone needs a daily dose of rule 34, for lulz or other reasons. Those who don’t are lying 😛

  55. Danielakiiki said,

    July 6, 2011 @ 2:27 pm

    Thanks for the update Titanium. Shit happens but the timing of it was reallllllllly weird (due to the previous blog entry about possibly closing down after June). Thank you and wiiaboo and the others for all your hard work.

    Thanks for the info, and for your hard work in maintaining (and fixing) the site!

    I wonder what could an OhInternet’ified Paheal look like?
    A repository of “funny pictures”, reaction memes and lolcats, with ~10% of very tame ecchi? :)

    Although I hope I’m not speaking for myself when I say screw the scoring system, we’d rather have favorites.

  63. Adam Tom said,

    July 6, 2011 @ 9:16 pm

    Well, it’s nice to know what’s happening with the site.

    In the course of adding new features and upgrading existing functionality, this kind of thing happens. Don’t let it discourage you.
    It’s good to hear that the ads are helping with the costs as well.

    I’m curious, when the site is back up, will there be less 504’s and similar or is the demand on the server still just too high? Just curious; I’d rather have this slow site a hundred times over than be stuck with the nazi-like Boorus.

    Best of luck in any case.

  64. STD said,

    July 6, 2011 @ 9:26 pm

    damn ,what you do for cause that error, you sould be more careful with that stuff ,incompatibility or the conflicts that you can create by adding or modifying things on the scriptcode (its just an observation,i’m not insulting or telling what to do)… and the obviously , hope the site get up

  65. Anon #2 said,

    July 6, 2011 @ 9:28 pm

    If what you’re looking for is Japanese, Gelbooru or probably any other booru site.

    American/English: Hentai-Foundry

    Of course there are things here that I can’t find in either of those places, like League of Legends porn.

    There’s also pixiv if you can ever get through all the moonrunes.

    VIVA LA TITANIUM!!! and ALL the other mods!

  73. Kyone said,

    July 7, 2011 @ 4:06 am

    The site has had its issues yes; it has had a few images I noticed against your rules yes, but I dont agree with the one Troll who said to just let it die. If you have troubles finding willing admins I have some spare time in making my comics (non erotic need mind you I go to rule 34 to feed the pervert in me when I get stuck doing non erotic work for an ridiculous amount of time) and can spend a little effort to report some images I believe are not in the best interest of Rule 34 to host.

    Another thing I think would help the site is if you separate some category like Lolly(the part that is allowed if at all) Goro (sometimes called vore very grafic bloody porn) and Transgender (dickgirls exc does not include Genderbending) into an slightly “more offensive porn category’ (given a better name of course like filtered porn as most other sites filter them.) and give it its own site. lets face it in the pron universe there is an alarming amount of dickgirls I think its about time they got their own rule. This would relive some stress on the site and a posting restriction on size would help images load quicker.

    It is entirely possibly to have a 8.5×11 in image that is at 600dpi; the image doesn’t have to be 600dpi if it is going to be posted on the internet coping images to a reasonable size would help with more then bandwidth and could help with the site stress oversize images give it.

    There are simple solutions to these problems Like for instance the one troll image CGed Dick on Mandark does not a porn make, even if it was a humorously fail image (it was still blatant plagiarism and trolling to an extent), why not just remove it entirely after a small period of time?

    The celebrity fakes and whatnot porn of that kind probably deserve their own rule too too many CGed porn on rule 34 I think it needs to find its own home eventually.

    basically put if it wen’t for people like the troll that said let it die the admins would probably have more then enough time to do all this and improve the sire and web ring. he gives the rest of us Anonymous posters a bad reputation anyhow! we really will not miss the likes of him.

    Of course, there’s always the possibility that it HAS gone down because of the money thing, but Titanium and the others are currently involved in some kind of urban gang warefare, with the blood-drenched survivor presumably having the right to bring the site back in their own unholy image, to rule thereafter with an iron fist.

    Pretty unlikely but definately possible.

  81. NolaCeirs said,

    July 7, 2011 @ 10:33 am

    Thank you for gracing me with the reply:
    1. I already saw disputes between admins on different sites (most recent being

    2. Anonymous (the comment just before mine) suggested this kind of scenario

  88. Blaz Femur said,

    July 7, 2011 @ 12:55 pm

    If the problem is a conflict between scores and favorites, what if you disable the scores, enable faves, and use something like:

    ‘Image favorited by ### users’

    instead of the score?

    For you loli/shota cons.

    For anything yaoi(furry, shota included)

    For everyone else just view: (includes every thing imaginable. Furry, loli, guro, yaoi, etc)

    It’s the least I can offer as an alternative until Paheal makes a recovery.
    Get well soon.

    I do hope you can get rule 34 up soon for two reasons: On the 3rd July I accidentally deleted a lot of great porn mostly superhero stuff from you guys. Second to me it seems a lot of websites have been hit by bugs is that the case with you guys as well. Thanks for listening all the same have a great day!

    I seriously doubt the site would go down just by pressing a button. As one of the guys above me said , it is most likely a database problem since you’re not clearing out non used entry’s. It would be like using a while loop to fill an array where you didn’t define a maximum value that would be used to break out of it.(<–obvious herpaderp) But hey that’s just what I think , hope it helps. :)

    (Btw I assumed you’re hosting a ****load of images, or else this wouldn’t be the case anyway XD
    Since database problems are the most common problems especially when you’re dealing with a huge amount of data/columns.)

    Ya I LOVE 34 and I miss it already. But like whatshisface was talking about would you have any way of separating the posts into categories like guru( or whatever its called) dick girls(men) and Zimmerman away froem the main congregation? I mean there’s nothing like cruising some sweet stuff then a crazy sized penis is staring you in the face. Don’t get me wrong, this site is the best on the inernet. Bit it gets old after a while. Plus a slow sight is way better than no site at all

  128. A Concerned Citizen said,

    July 8, 2011 @ 4:50 pm

    In a way, I’m actually happy the site went down. For the reason that; when it gets back up and running (which it will) we’ll have an explosion of images. The artists behind Rule 34 will have time to crack up some really good images, and hopefully make comics.
    Besides, this is a great time for change. Rule 34 can be made better, and this is the time to do it. Infact, I wouldn’t be surprised if this is a joke, and the whole purpose was to create an update, and be all like: SURPRISE BITCHES! UPDATES HAVE BEEN MADE!

As I’m looking a thumbnail catches my eye of a porn image of her I haven’t seen yet.

    hahaha! you should ban anybody&everybody who impatiently or ungraciously complains or un-constructively/non-sarcastically criticizes the site or your efforts.
    that will clear up alot of the unwanted community and speed things along nicely. ;D

    Keep up the good work guys, I’ve been checking back everyday like a lot of people here. I also think you should add filters for gay/futa, loli, etc. I hate having to scroll through pages of gay porn, and I’m sure the gay people on the site find it tedious to go through all the straight stuff.

    Damn I miss this site, and to hear that it just recently went down. Tragic news for dem fappers, *sigh* so much time has passed. I’m officially 18 now. And just felt like visiting and reminiscing on the good old days.

    [b]GAWD[/b], I CANNOT get away from this site! During my time in Middle and High School I gained alot of maturity and knowledge computerized and technical crap(annoying classes) and shit load of other normal teenage things that you wouldn’t really care about. So yeah, how bout it Tityanium/wiiaboo/any other Admin/Moderate? Can I get back in? Or are you gonna be so stubborn and still abide that Perma Ban shit huh?

    I can assist sufficiently, since I’ve intake’d an immense-able amount of computerized know how. And I’ll show efforts of tracking things in the site and do basic usual Membership user stuff(such as tagging etc). If you agree, I’ll also have a huge favor to ask. But if you turn me down, oh well, tough. I wouldn’t affect my at all since I can easily re-access to this site, without [u]any[/u] awareness. I’m just saying that I can be beneficial.
    But hey, I also gotta have fun when I’m in the house and got nothin to do here when there’s a computer starin right at me.Also when I’m not on FB etc, so I’ll visit to mess around like everyone else here too. Gotta admit the ppl here make me laugh pissless! XD
    Even though its also filled with trolls and other variety of pplz etc…
    But I won’t exceed any boundaries, and I’ll have tolerance to the overall site. Still gotta goof off tho…

    Any who, if by any chance you decide to respond. You should have my e-mail, but if its the other way around,meh. Don’t effect me whatsoever. I just hope that you atcually come across this comment er…….

    I agree, admins said once it gets fixed this time then its “THERE, FIXED FOREVER!” so they might as well keep the site down for a short week stint and overhaul it to make it super, but being faithful to its origins.

    We are currently in day 5 of what many call “The Spring Drought”. With many of the fappers being unable to fap without the batshit insane material available on Rule34, there is woory about what type of problem that all this pressure and sexual tension will result in.

    ^i’m not sure what Anon is talking about, but its something to consider. finding a way to back-up(as ED had) or funeral-proof the contents, so if site does go down stuff can easily be transferred to a new site and seeded there to start regrowth. as that is the cycle of the internet, and likely what will continue happening with this modern PoliticalCorrectness & internet freedom issues.

    “Kyone” has good points, except for the limiting of pic size. TERRIBLE IDEA!!! replacing and keeping dupes with highest resolution is one of the best commonly practiced concepts on this site. the bigger the size/rez the better, its not like original pics are regularly uploaded at ridiculous sizes by their artists. as as computer standards advance, better quality will only gain importance. this site’s know for quality art images and funny images, if we limit the size we take away half of its strength.

    some people have been suggesting splitting the site up more into different sections. but this site uses a different system(albeit-simple) than the rest, plus EVERY other site already does that, and sites like 4chan have just gotten ridiculous with categorizing. it this site starts it will become just like the rest. Plus wouldn’t making more sites change just the way its organized only, and not solve most of the server/bandwidth/money issues, if not worsen them?
    (you semi-filter it yourself by adding search tags) part of the greatness of this site is seeing a mix of stuff including stumbling through unexpected or shocking stuff you weren’t looking for. the more we over-categorize, the less chance this has of happening.

    as far as the ‘offensive’ content goes, i question how long it will be able to remain around for. if we get rid of anything i’m all for dropping the Gore and putting the space to better use. (a little blood or violence is one thing, but gore is a totally different category)
    thought i don’t particularly care for them, Loli, Shota, incest and Futa/Dickgirls you’ve gotta keep for the time being simply for the sake of the integrity of the internets. Why is it okay to eliminate gore but not the rest? it’s obviously debatable, but gore’s main theme/concept is gore, not sex. sex is a secondary element in that case. where as the others mentioned sex is the primary concept, with the taboo things being the secondary elements. and sex is the central-heart of r34. For that simple but obvious reason, drop gore, because its the odd man out that doesn’t really belong. i’m sure a poll vote-out would be conclusive. besides, surely those ‘mentally balanced citizens’ have enough of their own Gore-only sites. so it doesn’t need to be mixed in here. to further the argument, i’ve seen loads of beautiful very talented art/artists involving and often specializing in all the aforementioned, with exception to gore, which i’ve never seen anything above average skill wise.
    if you want to help save some space and less traffic – eliminate the gore and start harsher bans against those who solely just bitch and troll to start fires and never offer gratitude anywhere(sans the aggressively sarcastic and numerous goofballs of course), if they hate here so much then they don’t need to be here?. it won’t be a ton in either case but it will help enough (especially as capacity becomes more precious as the site continues to steadily grow)

    what really truly makes this site great its its unique diverse mixture of strange and wonderful pics; either (1)artfully talented & sexy or (2)humorously inappropriate, and our pretty much (3)free rein to make stupid comments all in fun (which for whatever reason too many people seem to get bent all over about, made all the more unbelievable if they looked around to where they were, but either way accounts for the majority of the DNP list;those sensitive twats. and on that note, can’t we try adding a disclaimer to the artists stating not to take comments so seriously and just ignore them, since 99% are just goofing around).

    ***The more we lose these 3 things the more we lose the site, so that triad must be maintained above all else.***

    I agree that trying to split up and categorizing the site is a bad idea. Too time and cost consuming when the tags have always served us just fine. Same thing with limiting pic size. It limits good artists too much.

    I do have to say though that I disagree with your comment about taking out Gore from the site. I can’t say that I personally care for most gore. A lot of it’s quite tasteless. But if you start picking and choosing what kind of porn (within the confines of the law) you can post on this site just because you don’t care for it, well that’s a dangerous slope. There’s enough Stephen Conroys out there without introducing filtering onto one of the few places with the kind of freedom Paheal has.

    I hope things get sorted out soon. It feels like this site is an important part of the internet and it would be a shame if it had a significant loss as a result of technical issues.

    Also, as far as removing content, I’m sorely hoping that loli/shota/futa/etc. stick around. It’s not a matter of getting my fix; I could just as easily go use bittorrent, winny, share, tor, or use any other site still hosting whatever it is that’s being combated. It just seems like these days, there are very few sites willing to ‘go there’ and I fear the battle is already lost. I wouldn’t blame admins for their decisions, though. It’s some scary shit to deal with.

    Why is the site not up yet? I know I should already be used to it but it still upsets me that every time someone names a date it will always be one week or so later then announced, and even the announcer knows it so what the hell.

    I agree with Htoonlover’s last paragraph about maintaining the integrity of the site, without those three concepts it would just be a site for random pervs, to be honest i rather enjoy the humorous picture much more than just pornographic art, and the comments sometimes have me laughing pretty hard

    @Htoonlover & richardthedragon
    Htoonlovers & richardthedragon right! i do talk to much! and that one wasn’t even me(hijack my name will ya?! ~at least you maintained my accuracy).
    and i should, but i have enough trouble maintaining time for not hentai drawing, to transition to r34~though its tempting.

    sorry about the uberlong paragraph. just feel it’s important to provide fb as part of the community.

    @Carrot: i doubly agree, it is a slippery slope, i’m just offering suggesting and saying Gore isn’t near the heart of r34 like the rest.

    and Fernando, YOU FOOL you can NEVER take cartoon porn way too seriously

    I Strongly suggest a Non34 Tag Checking System!!!

    Somewhat similar to the one on HF but Should be placed under the Character/Show/Game etc… name tag! You know when you search or click or search a tag, it’ll appear in that white search/text box on the right side of the Images.
    [ Navigation ]
    [Mario ]
    [ Non34 Tag Checking ]<–This Additional Bar is optional
    [ Featured Image ]

    [x]Signifies a checked box for those who’re a bit slow. Any other necessary attributes can be added, I just put those ones because those are the most commonly debated content. I wuold also like to propose an Censored & Uncensored Check. But since each pic has a different style of censorship (Altered amounts of pixels; Bars that are scaled unaliked and what portion of the area that is censored; and artists that use items and methods of censoring private bits etc) I was like, naaaaah.

    Well, that’s my preference envision on this situation. Dunno if you guys wanna consider it, and if so can y’all execute it? This might take some time to do tho, with all the additional labeling of images and stuff. But then again I don’ rly know hwo y’all gonna do it tho,
    (I repeat myself) if you consider it tho >.>

    We’ll that’s my output on this topic, and for you money problem, I sorta reckon something but I’m too tired and lazy to type any more -_-

    And of course I’m not having the same problems getting pages to load that I always have when browsing Rule 34. Too many people on and I’m always one of them that’s kind of booted rather than having my page load. :( Going to be awhile before I can browse and hunt down that pic I want.

    It’s back up, but the page links to, which is a 404. Everything else works fine – in fact, better than usual with so many people being tricked by the bad page.
