Neat, wonder how many he'll eventually add to that list. Shame the thread died though
I've forked ChanTracking at least until Floens gets back:https://github.com/ccd0/ChanTracking
Maybe I'm just stupid, but I'm stumped when trying to figure out what this means for desu
What an odd board to have posted that on. Quite possibly the least internet aware board in existence by its very nature
desuwa is a 4chan dev, someone asked him to update the repository containing the native extension that has been ignored for years and he did ithttps://github.com/4chan/4chan-JS/commits/master
granted it was via a pull request so all he had to do was click a button accepting it
Well, not just one button click anymore; he pushed an update that uploaded a correct copy of the file, fixing some encoding errors from the pull request.https://github.com/4chan/4chan-JS/commit/9012f5a233203ec6e36c03b9372bfb5de98048e6
Wonder if he'll keep it updated.
Another pull request to the 4chan native extension repository by the same guy, this time trying to get a feature added.https://github.com/4chan/4chan-JS/pull/120
Wonder if that could be cygnus
Pretty obvious it's him.
In the brief time I was in desuarchive's IRC I saw cygnus (as nep) say one of the things he did in his free time was run a /rs/-like site. This is when the mods were in the process of applying to the role of desuarchive mods, which is obviously a bad thing.
It means he was a /qa/ poster in 2016 since it's the only place he linked it as far as I'm aware
Sticky on /f/:https://boards.4chan.org/f/thread/3396143/happy-birthday-billy
Interesting technical fact: When /f/ gets a sticky, one thread gets sent to page 2 which only exists in JSON.http://archive.is/EwXLv
old news but around a month ago /what/ had a hard drive failurehttp://what-ch.mooo.com/what/res/1.html
soon they'll re-hit 1000 posts
/qa/ having a quiet morning
/v/ and /pol/ (maybe others, don't feel like checking) now have 20 threads per page instead of 15, for a total of 200 threads on the board at once
I guess everyone probably knows about that KyoAni fire about now, but here's a NYT article about it: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/07/17/world/asia/japan-fire-animation-studio.html
Now that would be demonic, just imagine if 4chan mods could truly erase most of their actions…i'm sure a few may notice and it could likely even result in a fresh archive springing up, but still worrysome to think of.
Even more worrisome would be what they'd do with the ip information in ghost posts.
That's actually exactly what happened with that troid guy. I don't care enough to go searching, but he was caught abusing his archive (I think it was desu, maybe it was archive.moe?) mod powers to cover his tracks. 4chan staff should never, ever have any power over an archive
Samachan just broke 2k posters not too long ago.
Wonder if 8gag dying have anything to do with it
Doesn't seem like it, given it has barely moved after the infinity stuff. Don't have experience with the anime related boards on 8 so don't even know if they would feel ok with going to altchans, going to 4 or simply scattering to the wind. Guess it's worth keeping an eye on other imageboards just in case.
Most of 8/a/ are on their bunker smuglo.li/a/
Mugen's doing pretty well. Was he exaggerating or what?https://twitter.com/unclemugen
Hard to tell how a person's physically doing just from their e-persona.
He can clearly use his hands but he very well likely has some partial paralysis.
8gag still dead
/qa/ now has 7 day autosage and another round of rangebans. I wonder if this is the time to finally migrate or something. With 8gag being dead there's also some people out there looking for a home, although obviously the majority of them would be oil to our water.
Someone mentioned a spinoff overboard as well, that could be cool.
It's just so tiring to have moderation actively go against the board again and again. We end up putting up with it, but what's the breaking point?
stop being tard brain, means they can't permanently bump threads with barneyfag and rangebans might or might not be justified if spammers live on your isp
Nobody's spammed /qa/ in recent memory to justify at least 3 different imagebans. Also I've never had a problem with rangebans before despite having posted on /qa/ for yearss, and was using the same IP for months, yet got an imageban as well.
while I'm not against more activity here, I think the better option is not to try and move everyone here, but rather try to get everyone to go everywhere else, and connecting everywhere else together in a way
Yeah, that's a good idea. I'd want people to use 4taba and spinoffs and other stuff, too.
Did anyone else here use that SSFOS "/jp/ community united" overboard-like thing that would sit at the top of your browser? It was basically like its own frame that would remain there as long as you click to other spinoffs from it. (Don't go to SSFOS today, it's a porn site last time I checked)
Something like that, with customization options for boards, would be really nice
wish this place were busier
wish your mom was less busy
writing something up to encourage people to migrate somewhere else?
just use 4taba
That would be part of it, yeah. I'd think most people have noticed by now that /qa/ is pretty much dead
i dont know if id say dead but it dies seem to be especially shit right now. let me know when you post, id like to read it before the mods axe it
A guy photoshopping tires off of cars was pretty funnyhttps://boards.4channel.org/o/thread/21164818
Desumin makes a post about the state of archiving
I think desumin is admin, isn't he? Or did he step down? I knew he was busy or otherwise unable to do what he wanted to do, he doesn't really enter #qa any more, either, even if he almost never talked
>>5150>many unsolved mysteries from the previous admin (peace be upon his wrists)
oh I guess I should have actually read the post before commenting
4chan and desu both shortly went down at the same time.
Mods trying now to placate the board with 'epic' public frog bans like they do with /a/.
Mods put the 4chan(nel) happenings thread on autosage. Don't remember if they've actually taken direct action against one if these ever before. Setting a scary precedent
not a happening>>5757
heh, that'll show em
Yeah, a mod directly interfering is a really bad precedent to set, but I'm honestly surprised it took this long since they've been using it as a 4chan monitoring station since the vtuber thing. I had stopped linking threads before they archived
