Post interesting or unusual stuff concerning imageboards, textboards or related stuff here. This thread is for a more centralized place of limited discussion, but please feel free to make new threads if you want something more thoroughly discussed.
Imageboard Happening Archives

This thread is cyclical with old replies removed as new posts are made.

It's just the SSL cert


speaking of collecting trash, i found someone archiving that site on shodan


File:meirl.jpg (Spoiler Image,48.15 KB,640x639)

i know i'm pretty late to this, but man do i miss 420chan. yes, 99% of the users were permafried but it was still fun to lurk and post in sometimes. i also miss the old net character board...


Reminder that this thread is about internet happenings, not internet personalities.


File:8kun.jpg (573.78 KB,2234x1426)

8kun's activity 9 days later.


Why doesn't it surprise me that qresearch and /pol/ would be perfectly fine with having phone authentication...


Those active ISP numbers are low


Perspective on the above:
That number is unique IPs in the past 72 hours.
So lets just disregard the trump board on that site and look at what else it has to offer...

Kissu has more unique IP addresses in half a week than their entire site excluding Q... and this is no exaggeration.


I'm surprised 8kun even came back after all the communities made their own boards.


Wow, /cuteboys/ was still going...
I honestly have a bit of nostalgia for the first 1 or 2 years of 8chan, it was a bit of an imageboard and irc renaissance and there was some genuine fun to be had before /pol/ took over the site and the fun people retreated back to 4chan or other boards.


I think it had been eventually been revealed that Jimbo actually had some secret hidden Q board set up during his tenure at 8chan whose activity outright dwarfed all but the most active boards on the site.


Yes, that's /qresearch/. It had around thousands of posts per hour and active IPs, being on par with /mlp/ in terms of activity.
The board became visible over a year ago due to a bug, but since Ron, 8kun's main dev and admin, quit his job nobody bothered to hide the board again.

>Wow, /cuteboys/ was still going...
It's just one or two bots necrobumping Discord threads. The actual board (and 99% of the site) is not only dead, but even its old images were lost forever due to a server failure that happened a while ago.


pfft they should have a qaresearch board instead!


File:Ffc5RdTaMAASmlE.jpg (191 KB,1280x1280)

on Twitter yesterday everyone celebrated Shirou day, by using the same avatar of his face.
I don't really get it, but it was funny.


I miss /cuteboys/ it was fun while it lasted. Might have been posting there too young, but oh well.


antisemitism thread on 4/jp/. how's that related to otaku culture at all. i sincerely wish rapeape gets what he deserves for ruining 4chan


This thread is getting quieter and quieter...
Miss the days where there was always a new happening to read every day or so.
Sorry, gonna shut my mouth now.


I think a problem is all the happenings are either in, or dwarfed by real life now...


We are in the post-happening era now.
The eternal nothing burger that just never quite digests in our stomachs, leaving us hungry.


moot trolling boards was a normal and largely welcome thing that happened to every notable board over the years. The /jp/ thing was just him evading the question of his favorite board at a con in a way that everyone knew was a big joke. The impact was basically just flushing out the catalog before everyone was done laughing and went home. /a/ was probably the board that loved him the most when he left. It's bizarre to me how those events could be interpreted any other way even by people who weren't there.


¥ This thread has nothing happening it in but I'm going to sage because I don't want to point out a potential interesting conversation


The last major event was 8kun and then there's some stuff relating to heyuri and an attention whore who's banned for trying to use the thread to promote himself. So that's that


I ought to write up a quick and stupid if-statement so that no one can sage in this thread anymore
Edit: I did it


Well, people have generally reserved this thread for big events, but if things are slow we could try to include fun threads or projects that people are doing at various places? That's something I thought about mentioning a few times, but I never got around to it.


File:1642967840616.jpg (322.51 KB,1280x960)

Channeling that maverick spirit of ancestral /qa/, perhaps we need to begin a "create a happening" general.
Then our our happenings thread will have things to discuss!


File:1492917511684.jpg (28.94 KB,512x512)


huh... so it just gets bumped?


doesn't get bumped on /all/


you've heard of autosage, now get ready for autoage




hmm? what kind of projects? I hack on a chan-related project every once in a while...


File:Screenshot_2022-11-14 jp ….png (184.66 KB,1540x1779)

Not particularly a happening, but while browsing the archives I noticed a new type of spam on /jp/. Strangely it's some sort of tame interracial spam that follows the pattern of "[Touhou character] is having hot baby-making sex with X-year old [random African name] ([Touhou character] is importing men from Africa to increase the population of Gensokyo)." The quantity and speed of spam seems relatively low so they're likely posting by hand which is stranger still.


File:waterfox_23UUtmDvr0.png (128.61 KB,1194x537)

This was posted in the 4chan happenings thread (yes I'm still there for some stupid reason) and it seems kind of interesting. This is a site for "tracking hate speech" on some platforms and it includes 4chan and 8kun, but you can use any word. September 3rd was a particularly bad day for Bulbasaur discussion.
I could have sworn there were already ways you could do this, maybe on some archive sites, but this seems like a faster way of doing it.



I blame /trash/'s blacked general for this.


Oh, the poor idol tiktok generals!


File:wapchan down.png (1.04 MB,1794x1232)

Wapchan, a small board known for retro anime discussion on /ar/ and /lum/, has been raided and forced offline for the time being.


Hopefully these spammers get drafted...


Oh, I know about this one.
On 2chen.moe's /tech/ board they have /cumg/ threads and in there there are some people using 'ecker, an alternative frontend for 4chan, to spam those. It lets you ban evade and get past the captcha automatically but to use the public instance you have to send the gay furry admin a picture of your own peepee. https://git.sperm.tech/mrq/-ecker/wiki/Use-Me


is this WAPchan - Kuon?


really wonder who could be behind this..




the wap poster


a story as old as time


They're back now.


Good to hear.


How attackers managed to shut it down (temporarily) even though it was getting regular moderation:
>As it turned out, I had misconfigured the software on here, so even though images were being "deleted", they still remained in the filesystem. This allowed a malicious actor to file a report about some illegal content previously though to have been deleted, which caused our host to take down the site temporarily. I take responsibility for not catching this beforehand, but this does not change the fact that this was a deliberate attack on the site. This has been fixed and all relevant material has been deleted, hashbanned and reported.
[from their /meta/ board]


Damn, you have to be real careful running a board these days. Good thing they managed to get that all fixed up.


It happens when you make a mistake modifying the software.
Various software like to not give you errors whenever something didn't do what it was expected to do.


also can be confusing if you use cloudflare since things linger on their cache servers when it's not on the actual

64chan is back, website has been alive for a couple of days now and it's gaining activity.

I guess it really does only work on /qa/(board itself) huh


64chan has been yo-yoing between alive and dead for years it feels

/vp/ mod has a sense of humor and interest in the new pokemon release it seems

context: Pokemon Violet/Scarlet are pretty glitchy and unstable at times, among other things. I'm still having fun though.

tiktok general got banned again
2chen was down overnight as a result


File:800d33658fee2ac8a55e138b4c….png (142.23 KB,913x1168)


I do find it odd that tiktok dancing videos is somehow child abuse. A creepy activity to collect these videos, but not exactly harmful on its own.
The actual suspicious thread has been removed since they wiped their /jp/ board clean, the /jp/ junior idol thread that similarly to cum/g/ was also banned from 4chan. I'm guessing they'll just move host and registrar and revive those threads in a bit.


grey area csam is less about the content itself and more about how people are using it

All posts on /sp/ now have USA flags


File:C-1669760088264.png (167.39 KB,897x834)

Alright, this is pretty hilarious.


Oh wait... I'm just completely American. I thought FIFA was the video game and the World Cup was the World Cup, didn't realize they were the same thing....


What, is the football thing over already?


More like who's posting it. Can't exactly ban minors for sexualizing themselves.

FIFA is the organization that hosts the WC, among other things. USA didn't win either, they just made it through the first round, which is why the celebration was so short-lived. It's just banter.

soo.... world2ch is back. surprised i didn't see anything about it here yet. https://world2ch.net
are there any anons here that were around back when world2ch was a thing?


I think it being back is a bit of a misnomer. I don't think the admin or any of the people posting there were actually there at the time so it feels more like a group of teenagers stealing the name.


Just checked, the singular post I made on the site in the "that guy" thread was deleted without trace by admin.


Oh, I heard about some guy buying the domain, but I didn't think he was going to do anything with it. I remember people talking about it going down in early 2018 I think it was? It seemed every other month that place was dying or maybe people were just complaining a lot.
That's cool. It needs to get the dramabomb.txt url working again, though, since people still drop that occasionally.

/v/ blew up during the game awards, and at the end after the GOTY speech some guy came up to the mic and said "I NOMINATE THIS AWARD TO MY REFORMED ORTHODOX RABBI, BILL CLINTON"

Now /v/'s blowing up even harder with Bill Clinton even in the sticky.


too random for me


I am really impressed at how he managed to stand on stage in silence for so long without even cracking a smile.


is there much of a reason for this since 4-ch is still around? i guess this place might get a little buzz, but it'll just be another nearly dead nostalgia textboard

File:Untitled.png (399.27 KB,1382x387)

The ashime is coming to a close and veepee gets a sticky, as well as some notable cross board traffic congregating to discuss it.


I kinda wonder where they go from here now that they've ended a, 25 years at this point?, storyline. Wonder if it'll be more independent projects or just a new storyline following a new protagonist.


there is a new pokemon season in the works in April '23 with fresh protagonists. If they are able to revitalize the series and take it in a fresh direction is a daunting task though, with such old habits to break in order to do it; changing the protagonist will not be enough obviously, but based on how the games are if that is any indication there could be hope in change, even if it isn't what is necessarily what old fans would like.


File:C-1671387336204.png (252.18 KB,1260x619)

/sp/ broke 400 after the world cup ended


And the sticky became the largest thread in /sp/'s history, surpassing the previous #1 by almost 4k replies:


i'm personally in favor of making it a 2ch clone based on the world2ch name. og world2ch just looked like all around shit
although if you guys want to revive the OG world2ch, good on you

4-ch is an almost dead (save for a few niche of users who somewhat regularly post there) nostalgia (here, it depends) textboard too.
Both of these are just my opinion tho ;)


Probably not a happening, but swfchan seems to be down on both domains. Hopefully it's just down for maintenance.


Still down... Starting to get slightly worried...


maybe someone could ask him what happened on /pol/...


File:Screenshot 2022-12-26 2122….png (31.21 KB,1528x175)


4-ch is not dead what are you on about? if you think 4-ch is too slow contribute with your own posts maybe?
and about world2ch, i hate how "that guy" and his followers pretend old internet but buying world2ch is simply going too far...


File:Screenshot 2022-12-30 at 2….png (173.4 KB,977x583)

4-ch is pretty decent as far as textboards go in activity in this day and age and variety of posters and topics.
There's a script in the technology board that makes it easier to see when new posts are made too.
Making a site "based on the world2ch name" and replacing it with existing communities they already partake in is just abuse. Shameful and an insult to the past. Make something new that is truly yours, youngsters.

The deletion of anti-"that guy" post calling him out for his behavior is very telling, especially with the obvious overlap of users and I know for a fact the "reopening" was advertised in advance on h* as an "I bought this domain what do with it".
In reference to >>101525 this crowd of people are also trying to get control over Gikopoi to feed their ego. A fake "system" message shown when you login to Kanrinin Street.
They are not people to associate with and try to ruin everything they touch. Why create anything when you can leech from others? That seems to be their motto. I don't believe there is anyone who could possibly want to associate with "that guy" other than people who see themselves in him and think his traits of pathological lying and a necessity to control the narrative through deceit are somehow positive.
"That guy" is also telling everyone he's planning to buy 4chan and also that he might buy Gelbooru. Is he going to? Obviously not, he just wants praise and attention and for people to talk about how it would be if he did. If he did do it however I guarantee you the first thing he would do is ruin everything the very second someone hurts his ego.

I wish this post was a bit nicer, but it needs to be said that they are a crowd to avoid. Maybe some of the apples are alright, but the whole bunch will spoil.


drama is annoying to people and he astroturfs himself constantly to the point where I would imagine you're interested in promoting this stupidity even though he's wordfiltered and have to constantly refer to him as that guy.


"that guy" and gikopoi.com have no relation. The .com is tokiko's fork of gikopoipoi which he uses for personal blogging. He's been advertising it as part of some elaborate, extraordinarily lame trolling attempt for a while now. It's really boring, homegrown gikopoi drama.

As for the "world2ch revival," it seems most of the people involved in that are preteens, more than one of them is verified to be 12. If you thought teens were bad enough already, well...


seems like 2chen is dead
the admin was good at giving updates, but it just blipped out of existence without a word
wonder if he got his door kicked in or what


Kohlchan banned pedo threads after allowing them during most of its existence, citing a rise in actual CP (KC's pedobait threads frequently had legally gray material that was tolerated for the most part) and a lack of manpower to navigate through pedo threads as the main motives for the blanket ban.
Pinned announcement: https://archive.is/ZMDDd


File:freedom.webm (4.49 MB,1920x1081)

Someone has took Kohlchan down as revenge against mods.


File:final.webm (3.41 MB,1280x720)

The attacker's website:
>In fact exploit is multifactor while being trivial... (I believe affecting DB,bandwidth,htmls, caching system)... because of how its is being handled later by lynxchan


File:how.mp4 (6.07 MB,1400x1200)

I should also add: He had made a thread earlier in the week about a chromium browser add-on he created, titled KCResist Addon, that can embed hidden files into files that are posted, similar to rarjpeg. Other users with the extension installed can see if an ordinary file actually has hidden content that could be uncovered. As seen in this video.

Archive of KC thread:

I thought it was pretty cool at the time.


The attacker explained one of the issues he's exploiting:

>So what was one of issues? (still not fixed as im writting this)
>Filename field was missing length check
>>what does it mean
>It means that you can attach whole file inside of fucking filename field.
>As silly as it sounds yes, you could put 15MB (and more) file inside filename field.
>Then that filename gets attached onto html file, every user refreshing page have to fetch whole fucking 15MB shit emblemed into filename
>Then everything gets sluggish, shit gets inserted probably into DB where it shoudnt be at all considering size...

>Threads trying to bake html files are failing
>Filesize limit doesnt count filename field (!!) so you can attach 20MB of payload inside filename field when board max filesize is 10MB

>Anyway everyone could find out issue on client side when enabling built-in every browser performance profiller
>I believe some did but fuckign mod team is incooperative or just dont care
>Stay strong bernds

Important to pay attention to stuff like this when writing imageboard software.


Or perhaps was exploiting; the site seems to be up now, although I didn't try posting.


I think he's explaining that it's a file hidden in the image metadata for the filename?


File:IMG_20230104_030134.jpg (222.85 KB,1080x1684)

wow not even


It's just a file posted with a really, really long name. And he came up with the name by taking the contents of some big file and treating it as a string, but he could have done the same thing with the letter "A" repeated 15 million times.


NEVER trust user input

Lots of boards are down on 4ch




You still can access the threads if you know their URL, but you can't post anywhere since sys.4chan.org is down.


Parts of it are online it seems.



the proxy server is online (which would control http authentication). The actual servers are still down though

File:Opchan.png (203.29 KB,492x523)

Opchan (OPERATORchan) died an death just before Christmas, and barely anyone noticed because it's soul died long before the body did.

There were some incredibly wise posters there though, in the distant past.


File:1662301958849.png (Spoiler Image,1.22 MB,1060x1060)


Man, this makes me wonder, what's the oldest altchan still around? Desu, 420, there's a good number of decade-old ones that've gone down recently.


1chan possibly, although sadly due to that reputation it gets repeatedly attacked and you need your post to be approved before it will show up. It's depressing that it's necessary, but it's cool that they have software that supports that.


Another one fades into oblivion. The end is near.


7chan must be up there, right? Especially if you mean true 'altchans' and not just non-4chan imageboards in general.


I'm using "altchan" as a shorthand for "western imageboards that aren't 4chan", since futaba is obviously still around.
7chan is probably one of the oldest around, yeah, though it seems it's a few years younger than 1chan.


we could be talking about new imageboards, but then I fear this thread would just become an advertising blog.


Plus, there's exhaustive lists these days.


As long as it's not about cliques and drama like with k**, I don't think I would mind. Happenings are happenings.


It's odd that none of these sites have made an attempt to improve their engines or move to newer ones with more anti-spam features (like Lynxchan, JSchan or a maintened fork of Vichan).


are there actually any groups out there besides Kissu that are taking on the uphill battle of keeping imageboard software relevant?


that guy


No he isn't, shut up. I hate him so god damn much. There isn't a single positive thing to write about him. If you have nothing bad to say, it's better to say nothing at all.


He did just open source his fork of pixmicat recently. Why does he make you so angry?


The vichan group still exists but isn't really modernizing though they're taking some steps
Lynx idk.
heyuri and associates kind of like the rug pullers of IB. They make things complicated.

Idk what you mean by uphill though


rug munchers of IB




2023 and 420chan still down


Its fitting. Pro wrestling's dead, /wooo/'s dead too


Is kirtaner still homeless?
Is he still alive?


There are tons of posts buried in Heyuri about ancient imageboard (and similar) scripts. Though kissu seems to be the place for talking about modern softwares
Also as >>102033 said, kokonotsuba was open sourced.


/lounge/ has a goldmine of researched posts about ancient japanese scripts. Same people who made bbsdirectory on neocities


nice software dude
I learned this when I first made a posting application.


It's just one guy.


No it isnt..


who'se the other guys?


Other than me, I know Anonymous #1 and Anonymous #3. Sometimes Anonymous #4 contributes too.

-Anonymous #2


If anonymous #1 (the guy in charge of the BBS directory) had never come to heyuri, then the other three anonymouses would never have even so much as lifted a finger about the topic. They only got inspired because of anonymous #1. So you see it really is just one guy.


That's how communities are formed though? One guy shares what he is interested in, and others either get interested as well/more people interested in the topic visits the site. A group of people interested in the same topic don't suddenly get summoned out of void


I summon ye necromancers, samefaggers come to my rescue. Revive my website from it's grave




File:puzzled necromancer.jpg (53.09 KB,375x413)


anybody knows what happened to 2chen.moe ?


Assuming this post was misplaced in the bofuri thread


Probably a long shot but does anybody remember where the guys from meguca's (now shamik.ooo) /pol/ board ended up, i know they were on 0-chan.ru for a while with the /homu/, /xomy/ and /хому/ boards but they appear to have been deleted except for some archived threads from late 2019


I think their hosting company nuked the site because of the TikTok generals, but I may be wrong.


So where do we go now?



Unfortunately, that is something that has to be decided upon ahead of time. I think most 8chan derivatives have multiple backup sites (bunkers) in the event of such a situation since they have gone through what you are going through right now. Speaking of, you could check the 8chan "webring" since they have a few sites that allow board creation just to see if there's any discussion about it anywhere.

*pours lukewarm steel reserve out on the server*


Boorus are a type of imageboard, right? Danbooru just hit it's 6 millionth post.



Oh, didn't know Dan had GETs. Looks like Gel has them as well, check this one out:
1-6 is Yuno, while 7, 6 and 8 are Gardevoir. 5 is a special one.


Gel even has a GET tag, actually. Huh.


4chan increased webm size limit to 4mb, seemed that very few had noticed


I thought it was already 4 mb.


It was 3mb previously until sometime yesterday it was changed
Just a nonsense limit like vp8 only in the past (and still no sound webms on regular boards currently)


I think it varies from board to board.
¥max_filesize 6291456
¥max_webm_filesize 6291456
¥max_filesize 6291456
¥max_webm_filesize 3145728
¥max_filesize 2097152
¥max_webm_filesize 3145728
¥max_filesize 8388608
¥max_webm_filesize 3145728
¥max_filesize 2097152
¥max_webm_filesize 2097152
Looks to still be 3mb everywhere except /wsg/ which was 6mg as long as I can remember. Possible the API is wrong, but I would assume the API pulls the data from the server configurations, possibly outdated cache on their API server and to be updated later though. Haven't tried posting a 4mb file.


the limit in the json is wrong, if you actually try to post one it will go through


File:ai.jpg (264.25 KB,1404x431)

Wapchan has taken the somewhat controversial move of banning AI art sitewide.


to be honest I barely even remember that AI was a thing unless it's actively brought to my attention.. or i see pretty typical AI ero.
why did they ban it?

4chan is using malicious pop-ups. Pic related jumps while phoneposting and browsing 4chan.


Classic Hiroyuki.


This Comedian put up with Apu for years, Now He's Fighting


Haven't there been malicious ads since like 2016? I remember there was a big fuss when Hiro took over and reversed the ad policy and started allowing basically any unscrupulous ads that would pay to appear on the site, plus more of them and larger. I thought everyone just turned their ad blockers back on and accepted that he just sees the site as extra income. So did they add pop-up ads or is this just an advertiser who is abusing the existing framework?


are you sure it's not just a virus?


It's not, I got the same popup on my phone.


odd. didn't get one... but I think Opera has built in adblockers


The last substantive leak was in 2014, over some old hat janitors that didn't take kindly to moot demanding they dox themselves and sign an NDA to keep janitoring.
After that some besides the NDA itself their were some substantive opsec changes to team4chan to prevent that situation from occurring again.
Moot firing Kusanagi and forcibly allowing crossboarders and their general threads was the end of /a/.
I say that as a guy who never really loved 'saged reported called the cops' era /a/. I thought that was already a downgrade from the sense of community the board once had.
But that elitism was better than what it's become.


File:Liloshi Loadout.jpg (378.5 KB,2044x3128)

Sorry to res to my own post but i need somewhere to vent this: I hope Opchan, or some sort of quality firearms/hunting based imageboard comes back into relevance, because /k/ has absolutely been fully tainted and ruined by the r*ddit Slav war shitposting; I can feel an ulcer growing.


If you're a hunter, geographically-based forums are likely your best bet


my local forum feels sad and dead
so i guess it could be said it feels like a forum


>If you're a hunter, geographically-based forums are likely your best bet
yeah it's a good good way of getting the lay of the land when your quarry is the most dangerous game


711chan came back for a second time back in December, and it has a Tor domain now, too.

This is pretty sad to read, may his soul rest easy in eternal peace.

Please make sure you guys have uBlock installed for this very reason.


Whatever happened to late.city?


i forget exactly who they were but, r9k type posting with a discord server.. two things that remove interest from imageboards


I first visited in 2016 or 2017. I checked it out every couple of months or so, it definitely was a slow board. At some point, I was in the discord server, but that didn't last, as you said it removed interest. Being anonymous certainly beats talking to a group of online "friends". I tried to check it today but the site's down. I'm getting some info from /comfy/, apparently /late/'s domain expires tomorrow, so it might see a community revival.

looks like /azu/ is set to die soon. the admin has been AWOL for years and the contract with their hosting provider is expiring soon. https://ib.axypb.net/azu/res/6787.html
if you're interested in azumanga daioh/yotsuba/ichigo mashimaro archive everything you can.


From what I've seen, when I've checked it over the recent years, it did what many other imageboards have done and unfortunately moved the bulk of its activity to discord. A few times I did a yotsuba dump back in the 4/qa/ days I made sure to thank Ralen there because it was a great place to go for a speedy scanlation and read up on any related news.
I'm sure they'll continue to do fine in their discord, but they will be locked away among themselves so it's a loss for the internet as a whole. A better end than most imageboards get, I suppose.


Good news, an archive for /azu/ was made - https://ib.axypb.net/azu/res/6787.html#6799

>Hello. It would be such a waste if all the threads over the years were to be lost, so using a Vichan archiving software, we have archived this site here: https://axypb.logwarehouse.net/
>You can use this website's Discord server as a reminiscent of /azu/, but knowing many users of imageboards don't want to use Discord and prefer anonymous posting, so I also want to share https://www.heyuri.net/ here - which is BBS aiming to emulate the feeling of 2000s internet. I believe you are like-minded with the users of Heyuri.


File:asdf.png (67.16 KB,324x913)

I would not use this archive for a couple reasons.
The name made me suspicious, and a 4chan archive search confirmed that it's attached to a certain group of undesirables:
The first reason is technical. Since it archives that other place, it hosts legally questionable stuff such as doxing and images that are illegal for varying reasons. Maybe it uses a host in a country that's fine with that kind of thing, at least for now, but archives are already prone to collapse without such assistance.
The second reason is ethical. Ironically, the archive itself provides proof that it was the origin of the sustained raiding that /azu/ has had, not that it would be in doubt. Moderation did succeed to keeping /azu/ alive due to the max thread count's buffer, so thankfully it did not succeed.
Hopefully this post of mine sounded neutral enough, because I am very much not neutral about this.


>the archive itself provides proof that it was the origin of the sustained raiding that /azu/ has had
The archive was not the source of anything. An archive is not the perpetrator of the events it records. The archive houses logs for a bunch of sites including some turkish ones, and has been archiving since at least 2020 based on the dates of the first threads on the front page. The archives you linked, 4plebs and desuarchive, contain just as much questionable/illegal material.

Theres always archive.org and archive.today which are bound to have at least some of the threads saved. The archive in that thread is not a definitive authority on anything.

should have had another proxy layer


Wonder what else there is to the story, if it’s real. Assuming the guy doesn’t get scared into a plea deal I don’t think the charge will stick. Threats in the US have to be very specific and are time sensitive from what I understand. Like if you just say “I’m going to kill”, it’s not a threat but if you do so with a gun aimed at me then it is a threat. Unless that anon had some plans to do or was in communication with the Sheriff, sending specific threats to him a lawyer should be able to get anon off. Of course this could also just be an attempt to scare 4chan.


a judge has to issue an arrest warant...


...and in any case, legal harrassment is annoying enough that it sends a message that you're not safe, even on 4chan


An arrest warrant in the US has nothing to do with whether you actually committed a crime. It’s basically a cop saying they think you committed the crime and that they think there is probably enough evidence to convict you.


4chan doesn't save IP addresses of threads once they're archived. So to catch this dude on the shithole of peace 4/pol/, where threads have a half life measured in minutes because its all a torrent of effluent noise, they would have had to have been right on top of him so they could do their law enforcement hold/forward on his post when it was still live.
So probably a sting thread trying to get a known POI. That or he pissed off 4mods too many times ban evading after making threats, so they were keeping an eye out for him already to forward info to the police.

PS my info is a little old. But it was the case only managers/sysadmin types can make these requests (not even the full mods much less the jannies). Admin actions like this are the only real info 4chan keeps forever. Or kept. Like I said my info is c. 2015.

PSS I have really strong opinions about /pol/ and this is the most purely meta I could keep my post


how could such a wizardly looking guy be such a teen retard


>While on the "4CHAN" chatroom


>4chan doesn't save IP addresses of threads once they're archived
You don't actually believe this?


Yeah it's the way it was. Threads when naturally 404'd dropped everything from the db. When moot wanted a first party archive to compete with the third party archives he wasn't a fan of he specifically wanted archived threads to drop all user identifiable information so that aspect would be the same as the days when threads just 404'd.
Why would they do that? Because it's much less work for the admins when they get like a takedown request and they can honestly tell the serving party "sorry it's already gone and we don't have records for that user". moot himself also never got enough credit for valuing his users privacy, within the confines of US law.

If you've ever been on 4chan in the past and they delete/ban a handful of posters in a thread before deleting the whole thread this is why. They can't actually IP ban you out of the archive, because that info is gone.

There are provisions to save info in bans, and cp stuff is forwarded to the NCMEC like every other US website, or my above mentioned permanent log of sysadmin actions, but by default 4chan doesn't save all this stuff. Unless all the funny old mspaint conspiracy theories have all become true over the past 8ish years.


File:C-1679628851064.png (62.25 KB,896x434)

Vichan has no maintainer and has reached the end of its lifespan. No more updates for security or anything. Also something happened to the stuff in the GitHub but I dunno what any of this programming stuff means...
Can some expert hackerman tell me what any of this implies?



Imageboards are reaching very close to the the apex of what they can really be I think; it's already based off 20 year old tech, and most of the shine and polish seems to have went to the javascript interactions with it.


It means any found security issues will not be fixed in the vichan repository, but it may be fixed in public or private forks by current admins running vichan if discovered.
It doesn't necessarily mean anything, old software like Wakaba is still alive even though it's unmaintained and the language it's written in is dead (Perl). Those boards aren't being hacked so it's not necessarily an immediate threat to any boards. Maybe in 10 years it will be deemed too insecure with bots scraping for vulnerabilities on active servers to get a backdoor for nefarious activities, but frankly there's not enough instances for it to be worth it. At worst someone will be angry and pwn vichan sites to troll and sites will migrate to other scripts. Hopefully they pick something that works well without javascript.

A sad day either way. Tinyboard/vichan is my favorite imageboard script.


I thought Vichan's main repo was abandoned years ago and that only a couple of forks were getting updates.


basedgentoo commented Mar 24, 2023

So as of today I will be taking over as maintainer for this project.

I just want to state that Kolyma, according to Fred, is completely lying about any vulnerability in vichan. If you have a reproducible critical bug, please demonstrate it to me in private and we can discuss how to handle it. So far it seems like the people from soyjak.party were just lying to try to make it seem like their closed source software was superior. But at least according to Fred, there was zero communication about this stuff with him. I don't know the concrete truth in this, however. For what it's worth, Fred didn't even know Kolyma existed until today.

I will be updating the README to reflect this change. And if the people at soyjak.party would like to demonstrate their vichan exploits (which I personally doubt exist), please feel free to explain them.

Thank you.


If true, I would be lying if I said I didn't have severe misgivings about handing it over to a guy named 'basedgentoo' that joined github specifically for this event. (the account is two hours old). Judging by the conversation, though, he was at the right place at the right time and had a private discord conversation before others, like experienced admins or with people with ties to the software, could talk things through on github or an imageboard instead.
Vichan handed off through a discord fits the very tumultuous times we find imageboards in today and I almost want to laugh.


But he did a PGP key exchange so he's verified!

Yeah. I thought the same.

The russian guy is now one of vichans maintainers and will be doing "the bulk of future code".


what could possibly go wrong


These very questionable decisions make it seem like he wanted to go out with a bang and extend a middle finger one last time. Well, the good news is that there's other board software out there if things go in the expected direction.
It reminds me that I haven't seen anyone catalog all the open source board software out there lately, but I haven't been looking.


Well I guess this was the moment vichan truly died. Now there won't be a good and maintained fork to come.


I for one am going to hold out and hope he does something good with it.


a typical reaction to conmen so I couldn't blame


what's actually more crazy here is how isolated from the imageboard community Brenan has become over the decades. If I were to die there are I assume 5 or 6 people who could hold Kissu together and eventually work it into progressing again in a few years.
Somehow ctrlc has to interview people who created accounts 10 minutes ago in order to find someone who cares (and his method of stirring up drama to get takers has put it into the influence as someone he sees as like Watkins).

Just let the project die and turn off the lifesupport. If no one is genuinely interested then archive the repo and move on.

>he said he was going to buy 4chan last year and told people to wait for the big announcement, which naturally never happened.
Uh, no. He said that this year, in january. He didn't say he was going to buy 4chan, he said he wanted to, and then he said he would tell more about his plans in a livestream. Which he did. He said he'd consider it after he talks with his partner and make a decision in july.


Welp, let's see what happens from now.

Personally I prefer JSchan, but Lynxchan isn't a bad alternative when you need to deploy something quick.




What was the name of the imageboard that splits text posts, images and video links in 3 different pages? It had a comfy aesthetic.



>Documents obtained by WIRED confirm that Good Smile, which licenses toy production for Disney, was an investor in the controversial image board.
https://archive.ph/6QPR7 (an archive I already saw linked elsewhere, but it seems to be in awful mobile format)

There's a Wired article about the Good Smile company owning part of 4chan. I don't really trust these people to get anything accurate about imageboards and the article hasn't provided any proof, so I'd take it with a grain of salt. Nonetheless, Wired claims it has proof that the Good Smile company owns or once owned 30% of 4chan the company. It also puts the price that moot sold 4chan for at over $5 million.
A large chunk of the article is devoted to the "we must stop 4chan to save the world" stuff, but there's still some information in it that might be interesting if it's true. It's hard to see an article like this as trustworthy when it parades its biases so loudly.


>It also puts the price that moot sold 4chan for at over $5 million
I have it on good authority he sold it for a dollar.


Silly article, but Hasan, among other commentators, had this pretty smart opinion that a lot of liberal rags like to trick the cons into being outraged from at their articles to drive impressions.

The purpose isn't accuracy, it's to get you to click on it. And grats, you got me to, but at least I won't share it anywhere else so it can die on this thread.


At first I wanted to say that this looks to be one of those cases where the media brings up old news for no reason other than driving clicks, on top of circular quotations with no substance. BuuUuUUuuUUUUt there does look to be something going on.

Starting in 2017-2019, it seems like Good Smile got in contact with and later bought a company in Californa for making merchandise, but in 2020 this company independently started to do business with Netflix which led GS to fire two of their vice-presidents and then suing them because:
>stealing away a merchandising opportunity related to “Stranger Things: The Drive-Into Experience,”
>While employed at GSC, these executives had signed noncompetes, non-disclosure agreements, and an agreement to refer business opportunities to the figurine company.
The two fired guys countered this in September 2021 with a cross-complaint claiming that:
>GSC actively profited from sexualizing underage characters, discriminated against non-Japanese employees, evaded taxes, and funded 4Chan.
GS told Polygon that:
>The Defendants’ cross complaint, in contrast, is based on demonstrably, knowingly, and provably false and defamatory allegations.

Sources for this part:
And here's the two legal documents:
https://www.scribd.com/document/525487943/Good-Smile (Fucking 185 pages.)

Later in May 2022, Wired put out the article "Who Owns 4chan?":
It's an anti-imageboard rant, but the important parts are that first it links to Hiro's following statement:
>>* How did you raise the amount of money to compensate Moot?
>I borrowed money.
The article goes on to state:
>By 2016, Nishimura announced that the costs of running 4chan were simply too high and suggested the site’s closure was imminent. In 2018, Nishimura attempted to cleave the site in two—leaving 4chan intact, with its obscene and pornographic boards, but creating a safe-for-work alternative, attractive to advertisers, on 4channel.
This is true. If you ctrl+f "4chan LLC" you'll also see the important part about 4chan's legal structure, which is true as well. From there onwards it goes back to the previous lawsuit which caused a number of internal documents to be released or whatever I'm getting tired of reading this:
>Sources with knowledge of Good Smile say the company owns at least a part of 4chan, and that Good Smile is more involved than it lets on publicly. WIRED is not naming those sources, who fear retaliation for speaking publicly about Good Smile.
>Internal Good Smile documents obtained by WIRED reference a “confidentiality agreement” dated April 2015—just months after Poole announced he would be leaving 4chan, but some five months before Nishimura was announced as the buyer. One document names Dwango, Future Search Brazil, and Hiroyuki Nishimura as parties in the “consideration of M & A [mergers and acquisitions] regarding 4CHAN, LLC.” The executive responsible for the five-year deal was listed as “安藝”—Good Smile CEO Takanori Aki.
The interesting thing is that the conflict was decided outside of court, the procedure didn't get to the point of proper examination:
>A lawyer for the former employees declined to comment, except to say that the legal proceedings were “mutually and confidentially resolved.”

Then there's this other article from the New York Times about Hiro's record:
In particular, his efforts to avoid paying for shit while profiting and other legal hijinks, and Watkins' takeover of the site in 2013. Ctrl+f "handsomely" to skip to the important part. Also:
>(Mr. Nishimura, according to documents reviewed by The New York Times and people familiar with the situation, bought 4chan with funding from three Japanese partners for an undisclosed sum.)
Suspicious, buuuuut there's more to it.

This brings us back to the story you quoted. The article is written by Justin Ling, who for whatever reason uploaded the evidence separately in his own site:
There he links to the .pdf in question, according to which Good Smile, Brazil, and Hiroyuki would've pooled a total of eight million dollars as capital:
See the second page, middle section "Capital Contributions; Percentage Interests".
Here's the kicker: it's signed by Hiro, Brazil's Fukami Keiichiro, and Takanori Aki which Wired previously mentioned. It does actually show them getting a shitload of money for it, of which Hiro only contributed 10%. I don't know how legit the file is but aaaaaaaa this is exhausting and requires delving into too much shit so im gonna stop because i dont really care but somethings up for sure

theres these two other articles in jap that may be useful but reading them would take too much effort
https://www.excite.co.jp/news/article/Otakuma_1685326/ {mentions eiichiro in the title}
one of these had a part about hiro no longer being able to dodge laws

Wired did a beyond abysmal job at conveying this info, but it doesn't seem to be entirely bullshit.



That's not a new opinion and not restricted to the political spectrum or even journalism.
Social media algorithms are built off of outrage and this has been proven, it's just how things work in this low attention span world


It's how marketing works in general. Before the internet, the word "tabloid" was basically synonymous with "nonsense ragebait".

I get the feeling that offboarder participants aren't welcome.


nice ribbon mic


4/a/ has generals for every airing anime and popular manga, regardless of genre. What those people meant was that if you go out of the general for whatever moe show you're watching, you will see a bunch of shounen generals and get mad about it.

A bunch of /a/ traditions are carried on by people who have mostly left for other sites and the current state of the place is so fragmented that there isn't really a standard "/a/ user" anymore. You can blend in fine if you want.


Ah, I meant older moe anime. The Gochiusa/Kirara threads used to be a staple on /a/ but they have recently moved to /jp/.


Hmm, so kissu streams Hidamari Sketch and then AnimeBytes makes it the AotF and then 4/a/ does an /a/ sings of it. What do we do with this power?


It's just a matter of time before team4chan decide /a/ sing's isn't anime discussion and its banned along with every other banned tradition.
I expect 4/a/'s last traditional thread will be the buyfag thread owing only to 4chan's financial ties.

Imgur will remove all its NSFW content and old stuff uploaded by unregistered users in less than a month: https://help.imgur.com/hc/en-us/articles/14415587638029/
Two 4chan archives, https://4archive.org/ and https://4chanarchives.com/, use Imgur as their image host, so a lot of content is at risk of being lost forever.


I'm still bitter about yuki.la


me too, nothing quite like it ever took up the mantle since


4chan's a lost cause anyways. Not much in it to archive anything when the userbase is mostly composed of illiterate, room temperature IQ morons. The only people to care about the archives are the same sort who would like to learn about 4chan and imageboard meta and those same people will inevitably become disillusioned and search out other imageboards where discussion isn't diluted by the 50 ppm chatroom-like atmosphere.


No man the archives are for schizomancy.
Like making those bloated infographs nobody really reads all of with different anon comments all implied to be linked together in some way.


Archiving any imageboard is a misguided venture since half the appeal is that your posts will disappear forever once they fall off page 10, but I'm pretty sure 4chan's archives do the opposite of what you think. They give newcomers a better impression of the site when they search for some popular topic and find threads from 5-10 years ago when the site wasn't in such a sorry state and they promote the chatroom-lite style since it's actually possible to stay caught up on every post on a topic so long as everyone keeps their generals labeled. There's also the nostalgiafags who want to relive the glory days once they've given up on being able to recreate them.

Regardless, I don't mourn the loss since the ethos of the site is survival of the fittest via reposting, not universal archival.


> They give newcomers a better impression of the site
Bold of you to assume anyone actually lurks.


Assuming a proper use of an imageboard is a misguided venture


It's not misguided its Darwinian.
Web design is like changing the environment. The sort of interactions best suited to the design change with the design.


The topic of Emergent Gameplay is one that overlaps with the topic of UI design for social media platforms. One could go far with thinking of their websites as video-games where the actors in the environment shape the features that the designers put in.
Designers do shape the interactions, but the actors can break the design to fit their own ideas of what something should be.


Do you consider searching through archives to be lurking? I'd consider it more similar to sites like Know Your Meme since you're searching for specific information rather than sitting in on whatever topic the community feels like bringing up at the time.


Speaking personally, I find the 4chan archives really helpful for looking up the history of terminology and trends in the anime fandom. I'm not aware of any other anime board that has been consistently active and archived for as long as 4/a/ which is as easy to search as the standard archive format (the native search features on sites like Twitter and Reddit are particularly useless), plus it has the added bonus of covering a wide range of series and leading many trends.

The new Zelda got leaked 12 days early and now it's all over /v/



Sounds like good old guerilla marketing.
People weren't talking about it enough? Well now they are.

Heyuri and wapchan had a bit of a spat (wapchan removed heyuri from their links due to their differing rules about nsfw content, only being discovered when wapchan was raided by soyjakparty), but seem to be on good terms again.


Wapchan going after a more mainstream audience for an imageboard seems like an interesting idea. But, being strict with NSFW seems so alien with Japanese-related content on imageboards, so I'm quite curious to see if it pays off. An imageboard where you need to prevent yourself from posting lewd screenshots and such, when Lum herself is in a bikini and was topless in her first episode? It doesn't feel right to me, but I'm never good at predicting social trends.
But, geez, looking at the screenshot, that was a very naive move by the wapchan guy to actually go to the source of the raiding and try to talk things out. That has never and will never do anything but encourage more raiding.


nsfw content is mainstream, but harder to get banks and CC companies to invest in ad space on you.


It's Zelda and the followup to BotW, it was already big. 12 days is a lot, but plenty of Switch games get leaked early.


Uh I sincerely doubt leaking the full game a couple weeks before release on non-nintendo platforms is a Guerilla marketing tactic.


Looks like he made a post clarifying their rules:
>Really I just dont want any of the boards to look like /h/ or /e/, but to have /a/ style rules on that




I dont know if it's still a hot thing but I think WAPchan could've gotten a more mainstream audience because the whole "retro anime" thing was fairly popular a couple of years ago and thers's arguably a couple of forums that got regular users, so I think that the imageboard format is holding communities back


It was? I completely missed that, I think... that tumblr that made fake screencaps of modern anime like maidragon as if they were high budget 80s anime, was that what you had in mind?


The future funk and City Pop music fads


I've had salient conversations on the soy sites (and 4/qa/ before that) after they fucked with me. You just hide the noise and read only the signal.
Really wading through four of five 'this is you' soyjacks to read the real posts isn't that hard.
Most of them can smell when you aren't really trolled. If they're bored with your reaction you ultimately don't encourage more of it.


I mean I've seen basically zero mentions of wapchan outside other imageboards, so they're probably planning to recruit on social media or something, like how Agora Road did. Those sites are kind of similar...


Dreamchan is another site that could have a larger userbase if not for the stigmatized format


I didn't even know that site existed. The deed system looks cool, but judging by the archived pages, it was ultra dead for years before finally being put down last month.


Yeah that got resolved https://wapchan.org/meta/res/713.html#865
Now they are contemplating about banning soyjaks and frogs like Heyuri https://wapchan.org/meta/res/866.html


I noticed it was down thanks to this 2 posts. I feel at fault for its decline because I knew this chan since 2017 of so but barely posted there. Just a reminder to always be active on small chans because they can disappear any given time.


speaking of chans disappearing, 22chan.org came back from the dead.


One of the shitties chans and management tbh. Wish it stayed dead

It seems the 4archive.org guy is aware of it and took some action and there's a discussion thread about it on archived.moe: https://archived.moe/talk/thread/1694/
Today is effectively the last day of imgur as an image host as it joins tumblr in the grave, although most of this stuff is old since imgur lost favor many years ago with the increased popularity of pomf clones. If you've been procrastinating in downloading any old uploads, now is the time to do it.


>most of this stuff is old
Lots of rentries still use imgur for image hosting, and many of them are NSFW.
For example, the following is from the /hdg/ rentry:
And who knows how many of these guide images were uploaded anonymously which will also be deleted. We're seeing another pastebin catastrophe here.

I think this is imageboard-adjacent enough to warrant posting. Particularly since the date range for affected people is so wide that I think a lot of people, even here, might qualify.

>If you were a Facebook user in the United States between May 24, 2007, and December 22, 2022, inclusive, you may be eligible for a cash payment from a Class Action Settlement.
>Claim Deadline: August 25, 2023
>When will I get my payment? The Court has scheduled a Final Approval Hearing for the Settlement of this case on September 7, 2023 at 1 p.m. PDT


>What is this lawsuit about?
>Numerous lawsuits were brought on behalf of Facebook users who allege that Facebook (now Meta Platforms, Inc.) shared or otherwise made accessible to third parties (including but not limited to third-party app developers, “whitelisted” parties, business partners, advertisers, and data brokers) user data and data about users’ friends without permission of the users whose data was shared, and did not sufficiently monitor and enforce third-party access or use of that data. The Honorable Vince Chhabria of the United States District Court for the Northern District of California was appointed to oversee these lawsuits, which have been consolidated as In re: Facebook, Inc. Consumer Privacy User Profile Litigation, Case No. 3:18-md-02843-VC (N.D. Cal.). The people that filed this lawsuit are called the “Plaintiffs” and the company they sued, Facebook, Inc. (now Meta Platforms, Inc.) is called the “Defendant.” Settlement Class Members include all Facebook users in the United States between May 24, 2007, and December 22, 2022, inclusive. Meta expressly denies any liability or wrongdoing.
>Why is there a Settlement?
>The Court did not decide in favor of Plaintiffs or Defendant. Defendant denies all claims and that it violated any law. Plaintiffs and Defendant agreed to a Settlement to avoid the costs and risks of a trial, and to allow the Settlement Class Members to receive payments from the Settlement. The Settlement Class Representatives and their attorneys think the Settlement is best for all Settlement Class Members.


>The claim website notes that they could be awarded up to 25% of the settlement — or $181.3 million. If they receive that much, the settlement will be reduced to $543.7 million for the Facebook users who ask to be part of the claim.
Note, the settlement was determined to be for $750 million, so the $543.7 million is how much would be given to, and split among people who sign onto the settlement. Purely hypothetically, if 10 million people sign on, then each person would receive $54.37. Not exactly grand, but not nothing either. Really depends on how many people submit a claim.


Tangentially imageboard related:
A couple days ago google announced that it would start deleting the data of accounts that have been inactive for two years. Since google accounts are youtube accounts, people were worried about tons of old videos getting deleted off youtube.
The latest news seems to be that google won't be purging youtube videos of old accounts:

But, this doesn't seem to extend to google drive or google docs. This is going to be another purge like imgur that will start in December of this year. There's tons of stuff stored on these sites as google docs was a good way to create a page with organized links and google drive was a good way to share files.
Go make backups.


At this point I think it's best to look at it from the macro perspective:
>The running total of layoffs for 2023 based on full months to date is 168,243, according to Layoffs.fyi.
>Tech layoffs conducted to date this year currently exceed the total number of tech layoffs in 2022, according to the data in the tracker.
Alphabet in particular laid off 12k people.
It seems to me that simply hoping for growth to lead to eventual profits isn't going to cut it anymore, and what they're now cutting down on is costs. Next thing you know, Twitter might start doing this stuff as well.


I've been sent at least 3 letters listing me as an affected entitled to a part of a class action suit.
Each time the company just weasles out of it because "LOL too big to fail" and they just pay nothing or give me something gay like "free credit monitoring for 2 years"
They try to dissuade you from taking cash, but whether it's $1.00 I wait a years for, or just a single ¥ even I'll take that on the principle over whatever they want to convince me to take instead.


Wapchan's new UI finally launched, along with the boards being reconfigured somewhat. The new themes clearly had a lot of work put into them.


Well from a lot of vlogs and tiktaks, it seems like most American megacorp tech employees barely worked so it was inevitable

File:1471461581029-3.jpg (118.88 KB,777x656)

I've been considering signing up for this because I deleted a facebook account long ago. I requested they send all data they had about me to my mail address on DVDs/Disk. They never sent anything despite being required by law. It took me months to nuke that account. I had a script running 24/7 for months deleting old posts. I didn't even use it that often. They kept hiding old posts from my timeline from me.

At any rate to this day they still maintain a zombie account in my name and I'm still getting pissed off complaints from people IRL because I won't add them as a friend. I really wanted to see the data they had on me and my various dev accounts because I had to use their API for many projects over the years (it was required to embed the facebook button+log-in with fb account option on websites I made/ran for other people).

Did anyone here attempt to get the cash settlement? I'll contact them later and try I guess.

The only purpose with these purges is getting rid of history and proof of how the internet was before a few years ago. Since covid they've been purging old data, archives and history left and right. If they nuke imgur and related places like the various archives of imageboards they can claim anything they want about the state of the internet between the early 90s and late 2010s.

They've done it before with USENET archives. As soon as google got a monopoly on those they nuked tons of old stuff.

They're getting rid of every last trace of the old "culture". If you don't believe me just attempt to search for "The fappening". You won't find anything about it even through Russian search engines like yandex. Despite the fact that it was the major reason why 4chan became so locked down and moot quit. Those two points are often blamed on gamergate. But GG wasn't that big of a deal all things considered. The fappening was the leak that forced them into action because it compromised so many people (basically everyone that had an Apple account+iPhone. Fappening wasn't just celeb nudes leaking out. It contained TONS of information about important people).

Please enjoy smug pyramid as apologies for being semi-off topic. I do not lurk very often anymore as the internet is dead. I try to check in with kissu once a year or so but I often forget it exists as I've mostly stopped using the internet. I would have posted something better than pic related but my personal archives from before about 2014 are now sitting on HDDs I haven't hooked up in years. I have them in the bunker safe and sound waiting for the end of the world.

I hope everyone is doing well.


I think that in terms of saving things for posterity, the best that can be done is putting together your important files and trying to upload them to archive.org. It's the simplest and most reliable thing to do.


Just wait, if the corpos cannot kill archive.org with the book thing, they'll go after the copyright infringement in their uploads.


It's still the best we have, isn't it?


Also please donate to the archive aaaaaaaa


I just searched "icloud leaks" and a whole bunch of articles, videos, and even a wikipedia page calling it "The Fappening" so I guess I was smart to not believe you. There's not some grand corporate conspiracy to rewrite internet history. At most, there are asshole mods/admins who want to kill off the nostalgic oldfags who are bitter about them selling out. Companies just don't want to waste money storing a ton of data that doesn't generate anything for them. You've surely heard of anime and game production materials being lost for the same reason and those are vastly smaller than internet archives. The fact of the matter is that 99% of internet communication is idle chatter and attempting to record and archive every conversation of every person ever is a fool's errand.


>I guess I was smart to not believe you.
Yes anon those articles and that wikipedia blurb that mention it happened and only contained some nudes is the real story. The mountains of documents, txt files, videos and data that was dumped along with the nudes from ever politician's state issued iPhone/iCloud accounts was a right-wing conspiracy theory. It never happened. More importantly it was a good thing that we censored multiple websites and changed the rules on places like 4chan because we must believe all women. Uploading copies of naked pictures they took of themselves and uploaded to the internet is "revenge porn" and anyone hosting them should be persecuted and locked away for life.

I'm to the point where I don't care if people like you are
>A) stupid idiots
>B) liars
it's the same result. You're just as annoying either way and you're part of the problem. If you can't see what's happening then you're literally too stupid to be on the internet in the first place.

archive.org and similar websites remove stuff all of the time for different reasons.

What we should have done is kept developing p2p software. IPFS and similar projects could have become a public "cloud" where ever user donated a little HDD space and bandwidth in return for being able to access any data in the network. We had the technology to avoid the censorship way back in the 90s.

The problem is that even torrents have been gameified and have morphed into stupid things like private trackers. Where people have locked up data that should be free behind paywalls and artificial roadblocks. They claim it's that way because people won't seed files. But the real reason is because they want to chase internet points and do what jannys do best: be annoying power tripping faggots.

Go and try to release something like a fansub right now without using a pre-existing account. You will not be able to upload it to some place like Nyaa. They locked down registration years ago and only allow old accounts to upload. Most releases are just rips from offical sources now. If you go to their IRC channel and ask nicely for an account and attempt to show them 20+ episodes of some old rare anime you've painstakingly translated you'll get kicked+banned because the janny didn't even read your message. You can't join with existing groups on the discordz without doxing yourself (gib cell phone number or you're a troll). You can open an IRC channel on rizon and do the xdcc bot thing but no one will ever download your release. You can ask nicely on 4/a/ if someone with a nyaa account will mirror/upload the .torrent for you. Enjoy getting banned for being "off topic".

It's obvious that the whole fansub thing is locked behind a pay2play wall now. You don't get to participate anywhere from public to private trackers without sucking janny cock and censoring your releases. If you dare to point out that the offical CR sub is bad and inserting political propaganda (usually of the gay kind) it's an instant ban everywhere for being a bigot. God forbid you actually attempt to do a real translation of what the chink cartoons are actually saying in the native language.

I can do this with every "community" on the internet these days. FOSS is worse than fansubbing. All boards are censored. All trackers are locked down. All repos are highly moderated. Any new account with 0 followers is a "troll". Everyone is terrified of "leaking their real IP" when THAT'S HOW THE INTERNET WORKS. The best part is they shun real p2p software then cry about the censorship on centralized big /tech/ services. Plenty of people are terrified of using IRC because it exposes their real IP address if they don't use a bouncer. Yet they're more than happy to hand over a cell phone number to use telegram, discord etc. It's madness.


Do not tell me I'm making shit up or crazy. I was around for the good old days. I know how things were and I know things were much better back then. Hackers, botnets and skids were always around. I might have even had a botnet of Windows 9x and XP computers myself that I C&C'ed from a private IRC channel at one point. People were using these to ddos websites they didn't like all of the time. We managed to keep our servers online anyway and we didn't need some service like cloudflare to do it.

Most people in the /tech/ sector are 100% talking out of their ass. These are the people that claim we need https and signed certs in the name of security. Then they turn right around and advocate for MitM services like cloudflare. It's obvious whats going on: Unencrypted traffic for me but not for thee.

So much has been memoryhole'd over the last 6 years. It's really amazing the amount of things that have been purged from the internet and global consciousness. The only place data is safe is in your local backups. Even there you want to take great care that they're offline. As every consumer device comes with multiple baked in backdoors that can be used to read/write/modify data at any time.

But sure I'm paranoid. Those OPsec threads on 4/g/ are totally legit and you're safe using those services like Signal and telegram. The encryption is really strong to! Never mind the fact that your CPU allows a remote user to pluck anything out of RAM in real time. Those ancient Snowden leaks never happened. Go and re-post the contents on 4/g/ right now. See how long it takes for the friendly local mod to ban you after a legion of bots calls you a schizo.

Here's a fun pdf file: https://sgp.fas.org/othergov/dod/dod060807.pdf

Department of Defense "Internet interactive activities" program. That's all the way back in 2007. Proves they employee millions of people all over the world to censor and shit up places like this one. Proves they bring anyone with the same reach as MSM into the program via PR agencies. Proves that they kill any organic happening on the web before it spreads outside of its original region/website/community. All the proof is right there. But try to talk about it and see how quickly you're banned and/or drowned out by bots, low effort trolls and people pretending to be concerned anons. You're crazy and a schizo for noticing the man behind the curtain.

The fact is the average internet user (outside of AOL) in 1998 would have never put up with what's happening today. Back then if they threatened to take down something we liked we mirrored it 20 new places for fun. We'd even root a Military server or three to host our anime fansubs and warez on fast ftp servers. We did not comply with their demands and stupid laws for things like copyrights. Now all anyone does is comply. They've complied with so much stupid shit they've forgotten how things used to be. People now are so stupid they pay for warez and services to download warez. They're so stupid they take a protocol that is totally public by nature and attempt to make it "private" then cry when someone with half a brain leeches from their swarm.

I for one and sick and tired of it all. I consider the web totally lost at this point. It's the space for normalfags and the corporations that rule over them. There are still plenty of free places on the internet with intelligent people but the barrier to entry is higher on a technical level. It's a good filter that keeps out the riff-raff. The web was never intended for most of what people use it for anyway. It was supposed to be for documents and stateless applications like old-school web forums and imageboards. It was never supposed to be for "apps".

We will never see a revival of imageboards until people stop treating them like social media. 4chan is never going offline because it's run by Five Eyes and the US DoD program. A small website that isn't in their fold is never going to grow into something like 8chan did. If it does it'll be brought into the fold or destroyed by bad actors much like the webring project was. You either comply and let them study the users or you get the CP spam dumped directly from the Government's large database. There are no other options. You will never do anything sekrit or maintain a sekrit club on a global network they control.

They are going to continue purging old data from the global network and re-writing history until someone stops them. There is no political solution. There might have been a chance for a political solution 10-20 years ago but that time has long passed. They are tightening the noose around our collective necks and you're either going to go along or you're going to lose access. We're going to be in a similar situation as the Chinese very soon. What with the social credit and the federal IDs and the limits on what and how much you can use the network. Anyone that doesn't see it coming is living in lala land.

>The fact of the matter is that 99% of internet communication is idle chatter and attempting to record and archive every conversation of every person ever is a fool's errand.
This is exactly what they're doing and the NSA data centers being built all over the world at an unprecedented rate is proof enough. They are so massive they're draining entire lakes to keep the servers cool.

You have no idea how bad things really are.


Tbf the schizo's not wrong about archive.org being unreliable, they do remove stuff.


pyramids are supposed to represent a foundational hierarchy, not a tier list


IMO it'd probably be better to make a torrent.

Archive.org is simple, but it's not reliable; people issue content takedowns to the site all the time, and at the end of the day it is fundamentally just a website; if the site goes down it takes all of its content with it. A torrent, on the other hand, while not invincible, is going to be a lot more resilient because it's not dependent on any specific owners to maintain its existence.

>Everyone is terrified of "leaking their real IP" when THAT'S HOW THE INTERNET WORKS.
What an odd thing for someone like you (a schizo) to say. There's ways to hide your personal information online, including your IP address, and you should take advantage of them whenever you can.


The cartel is as the cartel does.


But how often do takedowns happen? Just look at all the available uploads with the 4chan tag:
There are archive dumps, wikis, board albums, scraped threads, history stuff, images both individual and in packs, flashes, youtube videos... Hell, there's a greentext made into a pdf. A lot of them, especially the bigger ones, do come with the option to torrent them, like this one that's a hundred gigs of images from 2013:
It's been on the site for almost ten years, uploaded back in 2014, and its well-being is verified by a comment from 2022. Or this pack of SHMUPs which HAS to be breaking copyright laws:

You can upload just about anything you want by simply making an account and clicking Upload up on the top-right corner. I'm asking genuinely, what have they removed in the past?


>We're not going back to the stone ages to live some moronic pastoral fantasy

People who tend to go low/no tech and are informed in the topic are just deeply concerned about privacy and surveillance, because even using only open source stuff there's things like Oracle's surveillance and they see it as the only way in these times.

Can we just agree that whoever made this doesn't actually use an imageboard


The theme or the entire top bar?


theme's pretty good. But the author of the theme doesn't discard every single aspect of lynx's front end(the kuso parts) and completely rewrite all of lynx's backend in another language(the other kuso parts)


such as... using icons for imageboards(home overboard so on) is just bad. It doesn't work. Abandon the idea. I prefer what's used here


really, the biggest issue is the icons for stuff. They just suck. They're not even using them for anything useful.
And the CSS switcher shouldn't be a predominant item.


There's just so much redundancy...
if someone wants to make Lynx actually good they need to get rid of every single part of it. But I guess the server components of it work well enough for most people.

The HTML pages though... man they're so atrociously made. Vichan has a nice retro-simple aspect to it where it's very focused on giving you simplicity. The Kissu-UI focses on expressiveness and fluid transitions... I have no idea what Lynx is going for... And I won't say that the Kissu-UI has always been good, but it's gone through a lot of major itterations to make it something nice. Lynx is just the same old crap for the past 5 years. And like FUCK it's not even in typescript, what is this guy doing???

Dunno if anyone cares but http://lupchan.org/
Is read only now and will be probably shut down completely eventually because the admin got tired of the ubiquitous cp spam

Lupchan is a [s4s] spinoff that was created way back in 2013 because people thought [s4s] wasn't going to be a permanent board, but it kinda kept kicking on all these years.

It wasn't a very active but it did get the occasional post and I liked checking it out from time to time and looking through the old posts. Even found an ota thread back when the first ota went down.


Another light flickers off...


Man, that's a terrible way to go. The admin should at least give them some place to relocate and make plans. But, yeah, the illegal spam is so god damn frustrating and it kills boards. I really wish there was a way to prevent it that didn't inhibit how imageboards work.


there were barely any posts for months at a time and i don't think anyone minds much, but it's still sad seeing old things shutting down

i wonder who or what is even behind the constant cp spam, it's virtually everywhere and has been happening for years



apt remove php-fpm
Instant win


From what I can tell, it's mostly people trying to make a quick buck by getting pedophiles to sign up for paid accounts on file sharing sites to download files that are purportedly CP videos. (They probably aren't or the file sharing sites would have kicked them. This arrangement gives the sites responsible plausible deniability.)

This sort of thing has been going on for decades, although the sites responsible have changed over the years. You can look up
if you're interested in seeing the 2009 version of all this.


What reason would the US have for getting 7clams and lupchan taken off the net? C'mon man be logical


I don't know about this particular case, but the feds definitely do have bots pumping the net full of CP spam. I imagine it keeps a steady stream of retards coming in so they can justify their department with the bare minimum amount of effort. There are, of course, third worlders looking to scam people or just spite a website, and at least one anti-CP NPO reporting their own uploads to attack people, but the only ones who can do it on a large scale for a significant length of time without fear of getting caught are the ones who do the catching.


By feds you mean the KGB and whatever the DPRK uses.... right?


all feds of all countries
SOMEONE'S doing it


it must be THEM, you know the one!


The DPRK doesnt really do spam, much less CP, mostly hacking and illicit services for Chinese and South Korean markets, some for gaming!

Wizchan has been down for hours now and been having storage issues for months.


I don't get it. Do they self host their own racks or something?


They're still around? Weird.


File:C-1690688206302.png (294.5 KB,1260x602)

So Hololive is having another English batch of streamers debut, and /vt/ is doing election numbers, it's insane.


More convincing a shop than Nolan's gasoline "nuke".


I'm more surprised /o/ and /trash/ are that active


/jp/ got a sticky thread too from the looks of it.
The Jay has had a hard life.


Don't underestimate furries.


Half of /trash/'s activity comes from obsessive autists that spend 18 hours a day flooding threads and the catalog and necrobumping other threads in an attempt to kill one specific general they don't like. Sometimes they are banned for spamming, but only when they touch a general mods like.


/o/ limps along with its motorcycle general, one of the oldest and shittiest chatrooms on 4chan, and trolling/countertrolling regarding electric vehicles.
/o/ is so slow I believe half the posts per minute are those two things, no exaggeration.
I've been on /o/ almost since its beginning when I was shopping for my first car in 2005. The board's activity in the past was a lot of tripfags doing old school 4chan meetups. As you might expect the rise of discord largely supplanted that and /o/ never really recovered.


/trash/ is as big as it is because it fills the niche of a furry 4chan board, something there's a lot of demand for but the 4chan staff will never add for obvious reasons. It also doubles as a more permissive /d/, which got fucked over a bit when they added /aco/.


File:3da06ce8833a28b2805e72f2dc….jpg (153.06 KB,1045x614)

4chan just made the captcha letters a little vertically squeezed. I noticed this because this somehow breaks A1111's captcha solver userscript which usually only missed 1 letter before, but now it's completely useless.
Pretty amazing that this script has been working for 2 years until now.


It certainly succeeded in making it more annoying for people like myself with higher resolutions. It reminds me of the older google captchas that were slightly better at deterring automation but 10x more frustrating for humans. The people targeted will find a way around it while everyone else bears the collective punishment.


4chan's also dropped its cloudfare javascript challenge.


4chan is shitting itself again.


this is awful

This is the part where people start advertising kissu.

File:[MoyaiSubs] Mewkledreamy -….jpg (410.59 KB,1920x1080)

We could, but it's so hard to do it in a way that doesn't immediately dissuade people by the very act of advertising itself. People generally expect the worst from places that get advertised regularly. These events can be tricky, too, because a bunch of people at once makes assimilation much more difficult.

The only place that springs to mind would be desuarchive's /a/ ghost thread since I assume that tradition is still going strong. But is the typical /a/ user interested in something like kissu? People there generally accept low quality on 4chan, but they like the speed. I guess if 1 in 100 people will give it a try then that's still a lot of people.
Well, maybe I can get to work on the thing I wanted to do that I mentioned here: >>109722

If someone's in /ghost/ they probably know smug/guca/kissu already at the very least.


I actually reallly doubt that.


Did smug's fedi instance get pwned?


kissu has been mentioned multiple times, whenever somebody brought up altchans and /qa/


Yeah, but does the average /ghost/poster know? I kinda doubt we have that much of a presence that we're known that well outside a few probably talkative people.


File:[Serenae] Hirogaru Sky! Pr….jpg (471.05 KB,1920x1080)

I kind of regret mentioning /a/ ghost since it's lead to it getting spammed. Oh well, we talk about things here and unscrupulous people learn things they shouldn't know. Such is the mantle of /qa/.
Sorry about that if anyone was using it.

I doubt most people know. It's easy to lose track of time and how things change. If someone wants to advertise kissu there they can. Someone made a "what sites are people using" post there and maybe you can reply to it. https://desuarchive.org/a/thread/255725955/#255746388_2761
If you want the post to stand out use some ASCII or SJIS or even braille since it's getting spammed.

Altchan threads tend to stay up on /jp/ if they're not too obvious, but I'm not sure if being sneaky is really a good way of getting the word out. I also get the feeling that the majority of people still on /jp/ are the types who are content as long as they get to post in their favourite general, regardless of which board or site it's on. Still, I think it would be cool if someone like the vocaloid posters came here, never heard anything bad about them.

/ghost/ looks pretty bad


it's only when the site goes down that i'm reminded of the existence of these alt-chans and i wonder why i don't come here more often instead of filtering 50 threads out of the catalog per day.


I think most people fail at advertising based on what they want more than what they already have. There's not much reason for vocaloid posters to move here without others present. However for people like the songmakers or server builders that have really long drawn out posts and potential discussions for their stuff it'd probably be good to advertise that to those interested that fit the culture of the board. Since what makes a board really good isn't just a bunch of people with different ideas, but a culmination of people that can bounce off each other with talk about their interest.

Do that, and then as more people start to talk and make stuff others will naturally notice and get interested too and as they come more they'll bring their varied interests with them as well and then the cycle continues until you have an a bunch of different thriving subcultures. The only place within imageboards that has that right now is 4chan and that's why it simply has no true alternative. But with smart enough advertising I feel like someone, if not us, could turn that around somehow.


I used to be able to actually do both post on altchans and 4chan at the same time, but it just became too much at some point. Everywhere I went people were trying to stir up some sort of epic flamewar instead of actually discussing things. Also helps that I actually started delving into my hobbies more with the increased free time I got from things being a bit slower and not having to worry about the quality of the board, so there's less reason for me to desire posting all the time.


I think they key to successful advertising is the hook. You have to offer the reader something they're not currently getting on 4chan.
4/a/ semi-regularly organizes cytube streams and stealth advertises them with a link inside an image (because direct links get deleted). Maybe advertising streams hosted on kissu that way could be a way to gradually put the site on anons' radar without looking too spammy. It also naturally selects for better-than-average posters, because only anons interested in the show mentioned in the OP will click the image.


>they key
Wish I didn't make stupid typos all the time, but you get the idea.


really it's for the best


Lat running a giant blog thread with occasional seasonal talk and a hilarious amount of drama & infighting from a community that small.
After, a lot of people left and fractured even more and a lot of character without the staff was lost.
Idk if the r/a/dio crowd even uses it anymore either


The alt imageboard crowd just doesnt have enough users anymore to make it a "thing". There's like four flavors of board and its the same handful of people who like that type of site on all of them


That's what I've thought for a while too, but I'm too introverted to ever really take the plunge to go out and advertise. Maybe I should though.


Everyone that uses hacker news should be beaten to death


Just need to get enough of them to congregate in one place and you have a suitable alternative to 4chan easily.


File:filename.jpg (82.83 KB,932x525)


It's not really like having more people on a site matters... We don't even run any advertising for me to get money off of it...


4chan isn't struggling to load anymore, butsys.4chan.org and sys.4chan.org are down and /a/ and /b/ are empty.


I think there are a lot of people on 4/a/ who are tired of what the board has become but can't work up the will to leave. Every event thread these past couple years has people mentioning how they only come back for special occasions and encouraging altchan migration.

The best way to advertise is probably just to post stuff that gets made here in relevant threads to give people an idea of what the site is about while still contributing positively to their experience there. You get a slow stream of people who like the content and want to find the source and get in people's minds as an option for when things break like this. Has to be done in advance, though.


Solution: Webring with a "no competing boards" clause.


Violators will be punished with DEATH


Dude, imagine the power struggles.




Imagine the power snuggles uwu


was just about to ask if anyone knew of some sort of diy or homesteading imageboard since 4ch has that but most alts don't due to focusing on some mixture of anime, shitpostin, tech, and pron.


I think the majority would just join for the streams and then leave after. Or they would just post in the 4/a/ thread you created for the stream.
Part of the problem with getting traffic off of 4chan and to other sites is that 4chan has everything, pretty much every hobby has a dedicated board or general. Most altchans only cover a certain niche and as soon as a user wants to discuss something outside of that, they have to find another site. Why shift between 4-5 sites to discuss stuff when you can just use one?


people say the problem with alternative imageboards is not a lot of people, but it's really that the most motivated people gravitate to high volume platforms so they can get the most attention for their things.
So you can find lots of alternative imageboards, but the group of people who are interesting is normally limited to the owner and a circle around him.
It's imageboards which have a strong sense of identity that tend to get the better flavors of people and attract interesting people to them


Glad that kissu still has a strong meta niche for discussion imageboard culture.


I agree with this, the difference between something like a robot wife imageboard and anime character imageboard is that 4chan already exists.


I'm not sure I agree. I personally consider myself a member of Kissu, not of the larger 'altchan' community. It's the only imageboard I imageboard I use with any regularity.



Homesteading, huh. I can't really think of any places with that sort of focus, but it sounds interesting to me. It's not rare to see cooking threads in lots of various boards, but that's about it. Kohlchan might have discussion around it since it has an older demographic than most. Then there's the /tg/-oriented places that again have an older demographic, but also learn towards crafts due to the hobby. Unfortunately, it's also a subject that some people mix politics into, so it might exist on some political-oriented imageboards that I don't pay much attention to.
It's really hard for me to find places that I mesh with, personally, as there's still a lot of 4chan reactionary outrage branding involved.

It's funny you mention the robot wife one while I was writing my earlier remark. That's a place I would be interested in if it was more "let's make our dreams a reality" and less pol9k. I don't mean to focus on that one in particular as this has happened to me repeatedly when searching around on different imageboards. The subject of discussion is the focus, true, but atmosphere and culture is just as important to me. Finding imageboards that don't share 4chan's culture is pretty rare, and if you have 4chan's culture I don't notice a difference apart from CSS.

Fair enough. I can never tell what percentage of 4channery is astroturfed psyop to trolling to actual belief at any given time, my optimism tends to make me believe its mostly the former two whenever someone says something ridiculous. Kohlchan seems interesting, I'll check it out alongside scoping out tg boards. Been hankering to do some sort of a quest anyhow.


Thanks, I'll check this out!


Same. Most altchans have these nice looking descriptions where they tell you about all the cancer they ban, but then you look at the catalog and its generals as far as the eye can see, just without the occasional quality content that makes you somewhat willing to wade through the blogging and ritualposting on 4chan. Makes me wonder why they even make these things if they're just going to emulate modern 4chan. The only altchans I use with any regularity are ones that offer things 4chan doesn't and of those, Kissu is the only one covering a big enough need to warrant investment in the community.


I'm checking the archives and seems like 4chan is up in some parts of the world while remaining down for others. At first I thought it was an EU issue but then I saw german and finnish flags. So why is it still down for me?


I checked again and 4channel.org works fine.


File:4channel.png (46.85 KB,1634x874)

Yeah me too, I also get a time out like the post above


I tried making a post on 4chan but I get an error saying I'm banned and when I click on the hyperlink it goes straight to this >>112097

Can't tell if I'm actually banned or 4chan is just fucked up. I don't think I posted anything ban worthy recently anyway.


guess they had a server failure


Front page is still down. This is a new low for me, mods refuse to answer on IRC and still no twitter post or anouncement apologizing. If the whole staff doesn't care about the IB they should just step down and let people who would give 2 cents for it to take care of the whole chan. I'm tired of the current state of 4chan. Worst part? I'm a 4chan pass owner.


Same I just renewed my pass last month. Also whenever 4chan goes down I realize just how much social interaction I get via imageboards. Feels bad.

Funny, those parasites have no reason to have a grudge against what the board was for.


That archive now seems to be down, sadly. I wonder if the posts are completely gone or if anyone else has archived them anywhere. Would be sad if all those years of discussion were totally lost.

It seems the site's blocked from archive.org and archive.today has barely anything, only a few captures.

https://kind.moe/ has been shut down:

>Goodbye, /kind/

>Unfortunately (or fortunately), this incarnation of /kind/ is coming to an end. This was a total failure on my part, primarily due to a lack of free time and unwillingness to use heavy moderation to make the board what I, and for those who liked 2kind, wanted. With 2kind, I could focus on being a part of the site and steering it's culture in the direction that I had wanted. After I got a job so that I could pay for kind.moe's hosting, I could no longer do that. I also lost motivation for the site early on with all the outsiders coming in early on from adjacent sites that went down, which as we all know got worse as time went on. As for the moderation issue, there have been occasional posts about old /kind/ and the board's culture. It really stumped me. I lost sight of /kind/ as it was back in the day and that made me unsure about what I was doing.

>I've been considering shutting the board down for many months now, and after a brief conversation with an anon on another site and this recent thread, it finally gave me the push I needed. I apologize to the good posters that have stuck through it and any that have left. Thanks for making my brief period as kindmin something I will look back on as enjoyable.

>A temporary board has been made on wapchan. It's a good site.

It sounds for the best, and the solution is better than discord


I wish admins did that more often when they decide to shut a site down. Give people a chance to regroup somewhere. It can be anything, just direct them to a named location.


Wasn't wapchan going to consolidate its boards as part of their redesign, or am I taking crazy pills?


Based on
the admin consolidated some boards and the users didn't like it, so he reverted the change. They do have an overboard, so the individual boards being very low-traffic isn't as big a deal as it would otherwise be.






/pol/ and /q/ garbage drove me off Chan's for a while. It's all ritual sameposty spot-the-glowie garbage. Just getting back into it and it's hard to get caught back up.

Don't know if I've changed or chans have. Weird seeing altchans going strong. Figured with no new users most of them would have died years ago.


soyjakparty is dead.
The original domain was taken down, then the site was shut down with the official reason being that the owner not being able to pay for the site.

File:1476426520599.png (316.73 KB,460x635)

Don't mind me, just killing an imageboard.




But in all seriousness, I see nothing wrong with it if the site's structured around it. It's upfront about what it is and if you don't like it you don't have to use it.


>if you don't like it you don't have to use it
Yeah, not like they raided dozens of other sites and shoved their trash in your face or anything.


I didn't know that site did that. That's really kuso.

But my point still stands. If you don't like the format don't interact with it.


Wait, I thought you were talking about basing your whole online identity on poorly drawn MS Paint memes popular with norms, not the chatroom thread format.


If you run a community based on antagonizing anyone and everyone for the sake of being antagonistic, you will eventually become a target of their antagonism. It's a bad idea.


No, I meant the chat format. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

See above.


Yeah, teenagers sharing dumb memes is normal and harmless, at least in theory. I don't think it's a coincidence that memes centered on attacking people birthed a culture that actively attacked imageboards.
It is (I won't say was yet) a place that prides itself on wiping out other imageboards and as someone that is a big fan of those (hence my presence in this thread) I am ideologically opposed to those that seek to destroy them.
If it stays dead then it means imageboards as a whole will receive less malicious antagonism. I can't pretend to be neutral about it.


8chan was a tremendous shitshow but I honestly miss it
Now that I think about it everything that transpired was unique to that time, I don't think we'll ever see something quite like it again
The 4chan exodus, the /fatpeoplehate/, the /intl/ saga, Hotdud and his cronies, the constant drama that eventually killed the site, the sheer number of groups crammed onto the website, the GETball competition
Everything surrounding /intl/ in particular was incredibly hilarious like the time they spammed /intl/ into Top 10 and when DudWheels got the entire site to raid /intl/.
The website was much smaller than 4chan but it felt so much bigger because of how many groups there were.
I remember browsing 8chan looking for niche and hidden boards.
A shame most of it was lost to 404 and time
So many memories

/intl/ won


the soyteens really are the modern incarnation of /b/fags with all that that label implies


Then I would argue that an imageboard is not geared towards that style of communication. They would be better off going to a proper chatroom rather than continuing to force the imageboard format to accomodate something it wasn't designed for.

That label implies a measure of creativity, variety, and impact, so I don't really see them as equivalents. There's a reason /raid/ never became a thing.


I was always pretty sympathetic to the party for that reason.
The label implies some nostalgia for a past they were never really a part of and a stubborn defiance that makes them not really mind being a pariah in other people's eyes because your idea of them doesn't intrude on their fun, if anything it fuels it.
Both of those things are right out of cancer era /b/.

I never even know who that andy dude was since I didn't use discord I felt very out of the loop on nearly everything. Uni is starting for me soon so it's time for everything to come to an end anyway. Probably forget this even happened.

True, Doll was also responsible for a lot of the sites problems. He also should've fired Red otherwise the leak wouldn't have happened. I don't really agree with a lot of his decisionmaking, why he spent 10k on a babysitting site is really just beyond me. I doubt anyone will buy it from him either.


I missed the boat on 8ch. From where I stood, it looked like a site for gamergate people, and I didn't really feel like being part of that party.

Exectly why I'd archive it rather than alternatives...


I'd be willing to help moderate if it's a manpower problem. I can't imagine the place gets more than 1 or 2 CP spam posts per day. Usually what I do with sites that slow is set up a simple script that queries the server every minute or so and displays a notification on my PC whenever anyone posts.


Just make it a public archive. Its very very slow without tabamin

What site is this?
I'm pretty sure the AIDS thing wasn't a joke, based on conversations I've had with people tangential to him on IRC and what he has posted himself on telegram in the past. Though as with many other things surrounding this fucker it can't be verified at all and should be taken with a massive grain of salt.


It looks like Heyuri


It's not, they don't have those IDs and I couldn't find the post anyway


How does knowing that someone has played S.T.A.L.K.E.R. count as evidence that they sucked your dick five years ago?


this doesn't surprise me given that he had an underage polish boy on his moderation team.


I think that imageboards lost their social role. People can upload images with their comments on various SNSs now. Hey kissu, how about starting a Mastodon instance or the like?


Social platforms are always based off of timeless concepts that can be traced back to Greek historical records.
Not to say we are all Greek, but because they kept the best records and it matches with everything else we know.
None of the social platforms are ever going away.

>off of
neat construction that seems to be making a comeback
apparently it's proscribed and considered redudant, a trend probably started by one of those pretentious 18th-19th century gasoline huffers who wouldn't know grammaticality if it... i don't know what grammaticality can do to you, but you get the idea


Kinda a surprising trend imo. While it doesn't sound ungrammatical to me, if I say it out loud I contract it to something like 'offa' from which the natural evolution would seem to be dropping the 'of' entirely.




The userbase is really offputting though.
maybe the German part of the site isn't.


if the problem is you speak german then that's the problem


If you can believe it it's worse than it used to be. The 'zine made a lot of the less pretentious (unironic Serious Discussion™️) users leave.
KC was getting better before the admin let it die, it's a shame really


cripplekike and null couldn't handle the buffalo, good times


It never occured to me that /intl/ is probably a large reason why fred is the way he is


well my gaysea friend
what's left for us, now?
I don't know where to go


It depends on what you're looking for, I guess
For niche interests find out wherever they gather, ditto with regional chatter
To blog/talk current events, no fucking idea
Maybe DG was doing us a favour
