Gurochan has banned art depicting minors at the behest of their host:

>Turns out the host is not comfortable with fictional child pornography, so we have no option but to ban it.So, from now on, all art depicting minors will get deleted.This might disappoint some people, but for now our hands are tied.We don't know how long the ban would be, as lifting it would require finding a new host.In the next few days we will start the process of deleting the existing offending threads.

Shit escalated very quick on Julay. People started to spam board in celebration for the new board owner, some of the spam was loli/toddler porn that got deleted by the admin because he doesn't want to get deplatformed too soon, and then everyone decided to spam loli/toddler porn to spite him.
The first meta thread (https://archive.is/eKGgJ) got deleted after it, and sadly the toddler spam didn't manage to get archived, but looking at their catalog should be enough to tell how bad things are.

The site was seemingly killed without warning, given the last post is from yesterday's episode of Kakushigoto. There were some talks about changing the name of the site recently, so it's still possible "samachan" as a brand is dead and the site was handed to someone else which will be reborn with a new name, maybe. In any case it's weird they got rid of the announcement so fast.

Interestingly enough if the drop in activity was all from university people taking exams, then that means the only people left during these times would be adults and actual teens that don't have to attend high/middleschool anymore and adults with jobs.

 No.40174

>>40172
I saw the data and several boards had increased activity since around Mar 15, so I think 4chan's activity increase have more to do with COVID letting people have more time at home and thus time spent on 4chan. The most increase happened with /v/ and /vg/, as a result of playing video games at home.
Interestingly the overall activity didn't change much since the activities of /sp/ and /pol/ are dropping.

I'm glad I found this thread by chance, but on my end I only started seeing the main page of Samachan with that closing message on the 17th here, likely 16th for the rest of the world was though.
I know I didn't see that message on the 15th which may be a timezone difference on my end, but at the time I only saw the usual news posts - and that my last post on the Kakushigoto thread seemed to also be the final s/a/ post too.
In any case, it is sad to see Sama go down so suddenly.

 No.40297

Well the original message only lasted for like half a day or something, then the main page went back to normal except you couldn't access the boards. After that and for a few hours you could access the /z/ board and even post there before it went back to the message and this time everything seems to be gone. So you most likely experienced the post original message, predeath period.

New developments on sushigirl regarding the samachan's death

https://sushigirl.us/yakuza/res/776.html

>Hello sushis, I have a proposal I want to run by you. I have been in discussion with a group of users from the recently shuttered Samachan, who are looking for a new place to live. They were a fairly comfy site with just two boards, and they are in talks with me over how they might adapt to living here without disrupting our own culture too much. I think with the addition of a single board, the rest of their content could probably fit into the existing boards.


>I wanted to run this by the userbase to see if there are objections or concerns, and have a conversation about these, before giving them an answer. As a condition of coming here they would be expected to use polite language and follow the rules. Currently the planning group is just a few users, with the rest of them scattered and out of contact with each other.

8kun never was alive. It failed to gain attraction from most of the former 8chan users (even before the exodus most boards had few PPH), technically it was a broken mess (Ron only began to fix bugs after the remaining users left the site during the loli exodus), it had a severe lack of transparency (people only knew about the ban on loli because a staff member leaked the info before getting fired), and since the beginning it only pandered to Qtards.
What is sadder is that none of its offshoots managed to managed to be relevant enough to attract their former user bases (all of them have PPH on the double digits at most), and in the case of /v/, the board that made 8chan the most popular 4chan alternative, the situation is so bad that there are multiple splinters competing with each other to get what is left of the original community.

Balkan Chan (where the Lynxchan support board is currently located) lost its balkanchan.ga domain for "fraud" but they have plenty of other domains:

painful to listen to. but what the hell why do so many people buy hiro's pass

 No.41585

>>41583
That "information" is useless either way. The only reason why anyone even buys passes is because 4chan literally harasses its users through captcha and rangebans.

Hiro's "Buy Passu" strategy works pretty well

A guy runs a service to resell 4chan passes because people can't buy with crypto.

He sells 40-50 passes a week(800$-1000$ to 4chan) through his services. You could assume 4chan makes around 100,000$ a year.

Fucking hell, and that's without including ad money. I wonder how much does it cost to keep 4chan alive.

well, he didn't namedrop his site I think so could be fraudulent. He was mostly asking about 9chan tw's potential monetization.

he said 25$ for a pass, so probably passget.site

The reason they threads like this and the shilling every time someone asks how to buy a pass.

>Hi, that's me. Yep that's the company name and it's the same site. People had already paid $30. I refunded them all $5 to lower the service cost and be fair to everyone.

How stupid, why not try to squeeze every last penny out of the dumb /pol/shitters that still buy passes.

can't believe people pay for a board they can get on any other small imageboard.

Was looking at this site >>>/b/3473 and noticed that the pph is insanely high on /v/. Wonder if it's one of the places that julay/v/ migrated to

Oh, actually looking at the webring now it seems that it's made a place for itself as the new /v/ site.
