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


I hope the kun thing is a self-aware joke and they don't actually think the "chan" part of 8chan was an honorific, but it's probably just activists hiding behind nerd/otaku avatars again


Don’t think westerners can be otaku


my theory is that instead of a channel for information they wanted to setup a tunnel for information but a typo lead to tunnel being kunnel so instead of 8tun it is 8kun




are either of these happenings?
i mean, i remember reading and laughing at the /cm/ post but i dont get what those are doing here


not happenings

the drunken funny hat man interviews with hiroshima


samachan went through a CSS change for Halloween like a week ago, and also has a banner creation thread stil open (I think)
Unlike the failed attempts this past week on 4chan's /a/, /v/ and /s4s/ as of right now, it's nice to see banners people made actually get added to the front page and the rotation, even if they're a handful.


Holiday-oriented banners are a really nice idea.
What's this about people making banners on 4chan, though? Are there really people wanting to make banners for hiro?


Apparently it was just on /a/ for fun, to let some ideas flow, etc. but later down the road some people started having hope that mods/manager/devs/hiro/whoever would notice and add them after removing quite a few from the rotations in recent months. Eventually such threads spread to /v/ and /s4s/ for the same purpose. In the end people got some new stuff around but sadly it might go unnoticed because it wasn't "official". Truly reminiscent of moot ignoring those that got made and even got dumped on a site somewhere only for him to ask for banners some time later.

>Truly reminiscent of moot ignoring those that got made and even got dumped on a site somewhere
Are you talking about 2012?
It's "4chan banners.zip", but I can't remember where I downloaded it. It's a nice time capsule of sorts.


honestly disappointed. i've been fine with the equilibrium the imageboard ecology has settled into. what remains to be seen is if and in what form 8kun reconsolidates 8ch's former users with all the altchans now present as spaces where alternatives to the 4chan/8kun dual ascendancy can be imagined.


Oh, fireden is still up on onion



meguca is hella annoying right now


What is it? Looks the same to me

update browser


Oh, is he trying another purge? I found it strange how that place had a /pol/ board for years and years and then kicked them out as if they weren't wanted.


for anyone that can't hear it


didn't realize that the german shooter posted a manifesto on meguca, well atleast that is what buzzfeed says


their /pol/ spinoff was pretty much a fascist dump. surprised someone came out of it and caused violence but i guess not really considering people practice what others preach


Meguca is still around?!


yeah, it's where I got kissu's captcha from to have something funner than recaptcha noscript


also at least the “otaku terrorism” shit will make everyone hate us again


Meguca has some really nice tech behind it. I don't know if it's all the admin, but there's definitely at least one person there that's really good at that stuff. There are a few imageboards that run off that software. It's a shame to see it wasted on that site, but they were nice enough to offer the source to people so that some good can come from it.

Oh, that explains the crazy CSS then. He did the same thing after NZ thing and 8gag shutdown happened. He made another politics board and the image in that article is from it- it had a natural seizure-inducing CSS in an attempt to hide it, which you can see in that image from the article. (imagine all the colors cycling rapidly)


>Oh, is he trying another purge?
>He did the same thing after NZ thing and 8gag shutdown happened.
I've seen a couple of annoying CSS changes before at random times, but I didn't know they were done for this kind of stuff too. So how does it work? Just delete their /pol/ while trying to keep them away via CSS changes? Or the board stays and the changes are done just to keep outsiders away?


The crazy CSS might literally just be because he’s drunk and having fun with the Friday night stream.


Maybe not, try opening any meguca link now.


I love this song. I miss you, Shamiko!


Yeah it's down «for the foreseeable future» it seems. I don't think they have a real bunker yet.


They have a ton of bunkers, don’t worry about them.
There are so many bunkers for meguca they’re practically an injoke.

What happened to 4taba?


>We are now 100% Javascript free (aside from any JS included in user uploaded HTML files)


meguca 2.0 has broken ssl cert


thats what makes it good actually


Tabamin screwed something up. Apparently there was some exploit and someone was able to at least post as an admin there? I really don't think he'd post a niggy ascii. Anyway, he had changed some things on the board recently so I'm sure it's related

and meguca itself is dead. rip in peace


We'll need an archive snapshot of this in about 20 or so more posts if only cares to have an archive of this thread without gaps, just FYI

How is that pretentious?


how is it not pretentious to remove a core aspect of the internet from your site because an ideology tells you to


I don't see how following an ideology is pretentious, even if you disagree with it. I don't think it's for the best, but it's certainly not 'pretentious'


There's no "he made". meguca allows user created boards and the admin has made a point of being hands-off about it. That's how/why /pol/ got there in the first place. The screenshot's retarded CSS and /pol/'s deletion were also their own doing.
Admin only came in with the site-wide stuff some hours later.



Do you think 4taba is the name of the meguca admin or something? 4taba is a separate imageboard and I can't imagine they share any users with meguca.



The "8kun" gambit isn't working very well so far:


Cripple is weirdly spiteful for a guy claiming to be a christfag.


Getting a "mistyped captcha" error. Changing IP or from noscript to JS doesn't work. Captcha is either broken on 4chan or I've finally been shadow banned. Not sure which. Posts seem to be updating on boards other than /qa/.

Nice digits.


Crisis averted. I was able to post eventually. Captcha just got foobared for some reason. /qa/ will probably get flooded again if the problems remain intermittent, possibly completing the transformation into a permanently angry and uninformed meta board.


/qa/ still looks fairly bad, and that one guy is still angry


poor qa4!


That one guy is always angry desu~. Doesn't really matter the issue.


how will they recover!


It's possible that someone in your IP range was running bots that failed too many CAPTCHAs and you were temporarily blacklisted, this is definitely google related and not 4chan. Go grab a random proxy or VPN and use the modern captcha on some website and you'll generally need to solve a lot of them to pass




proof /qa/ is dead


It's just funny and I've been laughing like an idiot over it for about a strait minute. Why can't /g/ be more people like this rather than people whining about not getting a programming job?



Blizzcon is going on. Something might happen

Happy late birthday internet!


8chan is somewhat back.


too many lookalikes have sprung up to call it anything resembling the original


not really a happening, but



Do you guys want to try a ritual to clean up 4/qa/?
The awful shitposters and mods on 4/qa/ remind me of demons,
so I was wondering if we can use a ritual or a spell to cast them out.
/qa/ has an abundance of sexual energy so any collective magic supercharged with it would be super strong.

I was going to do it myself cause it sounds a bit conflictive but it sounded fun doing group magic with /qa/ if it so happens. (cause theres noone around me to do it with hehhh…)


Sounds like it'd be a nice challenge. Though I worry that touching 4/qa/ more than necessary may make the attachments to it harder to sever.


what kind of ritual?


If you have the tools, go for it, but that board is so heavily moderated with enforced mediocrity that I don't want to be anywhere near it.
Or are you just talking about masturbating?


File: 9d733e7eb2.png (260.53 KB, 1041x266)



Is that 4/qa/? Someone should invite them to kissu


I feel the "ma" poster is already well aware of kissu. But maybe there's significance to them having the threads on /qa/


I just tried going to guca today and got redirected to their new domain


kissu feels like a lackluster board to make those types of shitposts on. i can't really explain it but i defInitely understand why he doesn't want to post them here.


I think while it was annoying at times, there was merit to having some screeching autist creating conspiracies over and yelling at the most inane of threads


File: a.webm (22.92 KB, 300x300)

Man, they really didn't want me to save this loading webm. Redirected me to gaia when I went to the page it was on.


Oh, wait. Guess it's just because I somehow made it think I declined the conditions


cute gif


Why must they taint such cute characters with their activist crap. I always hated them before, but now they have a body count..


What activist crap? It seems like they just got a new domain for everyone but the activists since /pol/ is gone there.


Are these still the same posters? The impression I got from browsing the new site for a few minutes is that the current userbase is trying to distance themselves from /pol/.


Fifth time is the charm, I guess. I saw way too much politics and real world mentions when I'd visit now and then over the years on their /a/. It seems to be one of the main differences between /a/-oriented and /jp/-oriented imageboards along with generals. If they actually mean it this time it could be worth visiting more often


No, masturbation / not masturbating does play a role in this.

A cleansing ritual. A /qa/ ritual.

If you guys want to do the ritual we're going to have to make it first. But it is easy to do; all we need to do is choose the steps of our ritual, and then we perform it. Then *やった!!!* /qa/ is cleansed. We can make a new thread to organize ideas and design it.

I will make a thread devoted to it in a few days but you can make it sooner.


I'll bring the black candles and pig blood.


/nen/ turned 4 years old!

It's only tangentially related but cock.li is down and I have nowhere to receive all these mailing lists I don't read.


Oh that sucks. Hope it comes back up soon


Their /a/ is pretty much a /b/, which is why you see that stuff brought up. And I don't think that's going to change.
It's still a completely separate userbase from (what used to be) their /pol/, who were basically outsiders who decided to leech off of the board creation feature, same as some of the other boards there. The admin's mistake was tolerating them, I suppose.


File: 1574311302032.png (42.02 KB, 1011x475)

Why can't we have nice things?


And I forgot to say, the site is up now.


everyone who posted in a reddit thread got banned


People still get on /b/?


they do when they accidently click it when meaning to go to /a/ and then just roll with it for a few moments


…People still get on /a/?


Why are so many /jp/ spinoffs overrun by teens posting as if they were on /r9k/pol/twitter/whatever? How did they even find them, and what do they get out of posting? It makes no sense to me.


i still go there for some specific threads. mostly manga translations.


hima/gnfos, but probably moreso hima and its discords


Oh wow, those still exist there?


4/jp/ itself had a lot of those teens that were attracted to what was then a new thing called 'shitposting' and not so much /jp/'s actual subject matter. There are spinoffs for those interested in Japanese things and those are are, well, pol9k crap. Sadly the former are almost entirely dead


>new thing


I miss w4c style shitposting.


You're an [o]anus![/o]


8kun allows board creation now.
It won't let people create /pol/ (at least not yet), but someone made a /pnd/ - Politics, News, Debate board.


Also vch.moe is now redirecting to 8kun.
And Sportschan has joined the webring.


>the webring
I seriously hope you don't meant that webring


The one that smug and julay are in.


Oh, well that's fine then. Thought that altchan webring was becoming relevant again.


8gag is unloadable for me lole
it eternally shits the bed

samachan gets ready for christmas

Also this just appeared on Desuarchive:
>2019-12-03: We regret to inform users that the scraper Asagi on Rbt.asia, Desuarchive, Archived.moe, and others are suffering reduced accuracy and missing posts in scraping 4chan. New, efficient, and more accurate scrapers are in the progress of development, but needs assistance and testing from C# .NET and MySQL/Percona developers to be ready for use. On behalf of all archivers, unless Asagi is replaced, we will now be unable to scrape properly under the strain of deep software inefficiency and unsustainable costs (like fireden)

http://4taba.net/ shutting down

I guess it should've been a bit more expected given that it was more just a hobby site to test things from the beginning, but it's still kinda sad to see it go.


He said people will still be able to view and post on it for at least another month as well.
It was pretty slow, but it had a very unique atmosphere, but he said it stressed him out to maintain it so it's understandable. Someone here should be able to clone it I would think


File: Screenshot_2019-12-06 qa ….jpg (Spoiler Image, 1.6 MB, 1895x2769)

Funnily enough, 4/qa/ hasn't even escaped being spammed. Now though, instead of cute pictures it's all frog/feelshit and the furry.


That furry guy makes me laugh, but I can't help but feel that he's wasting such a powerful tool. It's still hilarious what he's doing, but I think most people here would have more grand designs in mind


>but I think most people here would have more grand designs in mind
I personally would hope most people here wouldn't want to use that kind of tool and be a piece of garbage.


How is the archiving of it coming along? Is anyone cloning it?


I've been in contact with him about getting a full copy of the site and the domain name, but can't act on it until he's free to pass some keys, I have the freetime to set up a version on my local OS and acquire another server.

Some people talked about copies, but I dunno how many people will act on it and probably would be hectic and fractured


Oh that's good to hear. Hopefully you and him work things out

Mods ban porn on /b/, shitstorm ensues


I hate mods as much as the next guy, but they did a pretty damn great job here. Though my bets are on this blowing over after a day and /b/ returning to normal


Yeah, unless they're finally planning to kill loli/shota on 4chan for good (which is definitely possible) it won't last very long


Well, that became disenchanting fast. Everything's either just a "Remember when/this?" thread or "MODS=GODS spermERS BTFO".


NGL this gave me hope. Tried to go and post left because can't be bothered with captcha and VPN shit.


psychic. Though even if the mods did continue banning porn once they go to sleep it would return to normal.


/b/ has gone bad already again in a few hours



64chan is back up again for what seems to be the 64th time. I'm uncertain as to whether it's existence is some elaborate joke I just don't get or not.


The internet archivist people were banned from Yahoo Groups during their preservation process, days before it goes offline forever.

I can't remember if I ever used it or not, but it's an important part of internet history


/b/ was the only place to post loli/shota porn on 4chan as far as I know.


People with lolita complexes aren't human. They're beasts.


File: 1179134170766.gif (27.67 KB, 300x300)

Where do you think you are?


File: 1574485745675.gif (14.58 KB, 700x500)

I don't understand. Instead of whining about the mods why don't people learn how websites work and spam their favorite boards, flood their report queues, bumplock the generals, etc. It would piss them off and rub in their faces how powerless they really are.


The creator of Lynxchan shut down his demo/support site LynxHub and moved it to a board on 8channel.net:

>I decided I don't want to spend any more money running a site. Not only I have to pay for hosting, domain, but also about 5 USD per month to have a credit card. So I will instead run a board on some site. I will make a backup of the site in case I change my mind eventually. As always, I can be contacted by either e-mail (sergio dot a dot vianna at google's service, you know what im talking about) or irc.


NoJS recaptcha seems to be broken, either intentionally or unintentionally. So now you have to click traffic lights for 5 minutes before you can post when using Google captcha.


Well, one more reason for me not to post there. Wouldn't want to rush him, but if 4chan has finally decided to force hell captcha on everyone, then this would be a perfect time for ccd0 to start updating the default boards list.

Never underestimate the ability of the brainwashed masses to put up with misfortune.

easy solution for me was use Vivaldi and fake my user agent as latest google chrome and other shit
And I can use buster captcha and it solves it automatically
much easier than nojs


I've tried buster captcha, but it goes pretty slowly, and sometimes asks for me verify a second time or tells me I'm a bot. How do you get around that?
