not a happening




scary times we're living in


Julay's were a warning due to the shitty admins. 8moe's was an April Fools gag.



heh, nice


It's very plausible. I 'member people saying he was way better than Hotwheels, wonder what they'd say now.
>8kun without Q’s devotees may as well not exist.
Even Vice knows what's up, lmao.


8kun is like the propped up corpse of 8gag on display for everyone to see.

SnK ended (badly), and half of /a/ got covered in SnK threads.


In 2012, maybe even as late as 2014, I'd buy this as a genuine board reaction. But considering how mods micromanage anything and everything, specially when they have knowledge of when a meltdown will happen, I can't help but be cynical and see this as fabricated outrage.

I'm not jaded, just a 4skeptic...




File:imgladitsover.jpeg (20.3 KB,300x345)


Knowledge when a meltdown will happen? Mods must have access to exclusive manga leaks then, laughing at the plebs in their discord channel


can someone give me a TL:DR I won't ever bother with the series anyway


i remember reading the manga in the gap between first and second season, decided to drop the whole series when they finally made it to eren's dad's basement and they went into the backstory behind the titans. the story was shaky at best around that point, i dont even remember the details but i found it to be so disappointing and dumb that i didnt want to read any more


Lol yeah so hard to predict when a manga published at a regularly scheduled interval is coming out.


That was the great part, what the hell Anonymous?


You can't predict whether a manga will shit the bed, or not, and even how the people will react to it..

also, i wouldn't call the outrage fabricated. SnK was in top 5 most hyped and viewed manga on mangadex, so it's more likely that the norms got mad, than it being work of some nefarious plot helped by the moderation


I'm not gonna waste either of our time on this. You make valid points and I have valid points of my own to make but I don't care enough to go on a prolonged discussion about a place I haven't browsed in years.

It's a happening. Wholly organic? Doubt it. You don't. Let's leave it at that.


not sure, it just seemed so far fetched and out of place when i read it, like i was reading some completely different story. mind you i was a little fed up with the story by the time i got there, too


https://archive.wakarimasen.moe/jp/thread/34122125/ someone makes thread about kuz's site, blows up a little.

found this sifting through it and a /qa/ thread:


Odd to see that on /jp/ of all places


that /jp/ thread looks ayashii alright


File:high level net necromancy.png (586.05 KB,787x753)

As an addendum to my assessment that this someone just reviving ancient bbs from the supposed "source" is ayashii, I see in the links posted on there some old cracky cult sites.
They purposely collected and revived something obscure that ought remain dead; and that gives me reason to believe it's the same person who revived Ayashii World.


It's for a good cause. They're planning to use this ancient energy to smite the modern web.


woah, another 6 paragraphs of unsourced fluff that they expect everyone to believe.

i would start taking their side if i saw any real proof of any of the bad stuff hes supposedly doing. and when i say bad stuff, i dont mean saying something dumb or acting cringy, i mean actually "bad" things that he is doing. spamming sites, trademarks, etc. gurochan isnt even a registered trademark, you can check online, so that whole story about him trademarking and stealing gurochan seems fake to me



this happens alot. its a tactic of getting sites you dont like shut down. isnt that what happened to 4chan.net ?


I don't think a non-government organization is purposely posting CP onto a reverse imagesearch.

Is he just accusing random people of illegal content trolling?


File:Stupid Crawler.mp4 (361.69 KB,1280x720)

See video related. That leaf anti-CP crawler is so poorly coded that it unintentionally uploads CP to search engines and then reports them for "hosting CP".

why not?

there's a temporary copy stored on their servers which someone could say it being hosted by them. It would be stupid to say that's cp and most would understand, both legally and logically, that it's not their property.

We're getting into conspiracy theories otherwise


What they should have do is host it as a blob. It has a solution other than waging war against an ngo.


they should do both. I don't think the're doing that maliciously but they should learn not to shit up everything


yes, I would say that because there's a way to resolve the problem they have a good moral high-ground to protest their case.


In my case I was just going through the series with no real interest, until the Grisha flashback hit. I got hooked and immediately read the following manga chapters after that


Reviving the old to be populated by the new and the jaded as a final resort escapism from the modern web is not a good cause.


LARPing as oldfags sure did wonders for 8gag.


issa joke of course it's retarded


So sour for no reason. If the site is so awful, just dont use it. Its like you enjoy complaining about everything.

It was on this thread I found.
What is zzzchan btw?


>What is zzzchan btw?
Another imageboard running a really neat framework (JSchan). Main boards are /v/, /b/ and a /jp/ spin-off, but has "emergency bunkers" for other boards.


File:1617650948157.jpg (170.42 KB,862x786)

I see, I saw anon say they were spamming some new board and they deleted some other board so I thought they were some sort of puppet master of altchans.
What is zzz's origin and age?

I'm surprised at how many dead altchans there are that still are hosted. Maybe it's on autopay.


>What is zzz's origin and age?
Is a long story full of drama, but I'll try to make a greentext of it.

>you are here

To answer your question about "I saw anon say they were spamming some new board and they deleted some other board", that happened during the Zchan era. Patch, the mysterious mentally unstable owner, has a tendency to spam his new creations on every imageboard he can find, and Zchan wasn't an exception. It also wasn't an exception when Patch deleted it because a cabal of autists who are related to him found Zchan and bullied him with spam until he shut down everything. zzzchan is owned by completely different people (that have been able to keep it up for 8 months and counting), so that kind of autism shouldn't be a problem anymore.


File:green.jpeg (10.24 KB,319x158)


And that's the resumed story that doesn't mention how and why julay.world imploded in drama and was rebooted 3 months later, how other imageboards in the webring (a kind of NAP between various 8chan bunkers that includes installing an add-on that displays the other sites' boards in a separate page that is updated every hour) were attacked by the same "Esther Aronowitz" that reported Fatchan, how julay.world doxxed Prolikewoah's admin and made him delete a /jp/ spin-off because its BO was partially responsible for julay's implosion, or how kissu almost got involved in the same conflict because the BO and some users were taking refugee here (they are at zzzchan now).
Man, 8chan and its sprouts are full of drama.


Interesting danke.
Where can I read about the webring, it seems like the 8chan spinoffs are much more dramatic than the altchans I am used to.

Unrelated but I was reader up thread and saw these Kolyma people have a bounty on maki person and one of the domains they list as maki's is lolifox.club which now redirect to autismchan.me (which I just saw being shilled on 4chan), is this his new creation?

How do these kolyma people make muny, as far as I can tell they have some ancient looking imageboard and various things.


File:webring list.png (514.25 KB,1440x1364)

>Where can I read about the webring
The webring is a series of plugins for Lynxchan and Vichan (JSchan has native support) that essentially works as a bookmark list of all of the boards of every site subscribed. Said list is automatically updated with various stats from every board, and is an easy way to see which sites are "associated" with the site you're using at the moment and explore their boards. Additionally, the member sites can block other members on their end so their boards aren't displayed on the site that is blacklisting them.
Here are the repositories of the plugins, along with JSchan's repository.
If you want to see the current members of 8chan's bunker webring just go to the board list pages of zzzchan, smuglo.li, anon.cafe, or prolikewoah.com. Each site has different boards and culture, so expect to be treated different in each one of them (protip: smuglo.li has the strictest rules of the bunch).

>Unrelated but I was reader up thread and saw these Kolyma people have a bounty on maki person

that guy is a legit sociopath and a huge attention whore. He's targeting Maki in real life because he DDoSed one of that guy websites. That guy is shady as fuck and I personally don't want to have anything with him or his sites.
>and one of the domains they list as maki's is lolifox.club which now redirect to autismchan.me (which I just saw being shilled on 4chan), is this his new creation?
No. Maki is a different autist with a similar pattern. He constantly creates and deletes imageboards with different software, but most of the time they share the same name (64ch or 64chan). His move with lolifox.club seems to be Maki's attempt at being relevant again (he's been doing this shit for over a decade), since nobody cares about the 64ch brand anymore. Regardless of that, don't expect Autismchan to last more than two months.
>How do these kolyma people make muny, as far as I can tell they have some ancient looking imageboard and various things.
Autismbucks in Maki's case, and shady businesses and connections in that guy's case.


A lot of bluffs and maybe a truth mixed in to throw people off guard. He has some money stashed away and is throwing it into whatever. afaik he's collecting imageboards for fun. Maybe there's some way to make a quick buck off(i can't see how), but nothing lasting to come of it. Tends to samefag a lot so whenever you see drama about it it's like he's trying to advertise.


This makes me feel lucky that my image board has not attracted such autism or harassment (knock on wood).


Post site.


that guy is the mythical boogeyman that everyone can blame everything on. sources? data, sues people, eats babies and everyone i dont like is him/his "paid trolls". sources? nahhh, just trust me.

why do they spam mass replies for hours

People still use 4/qa/? I'm surprised


mental problems


I really don't think anyone should ever mention that place. It was nice when we were there, but it's team 4chan's house now and you really shouldn't ever visit it.

Anyway, I was waiting for an update to happen in the story, but there isn't anything still so here's an old article:
The girl who almost killed a boy for Slender Man the old internet thing is in court pleading to get released from the mental hospital she's sentenced to another 21 years inside.

Fucking slender trenders man


Guy on 4/qa/ was painting soijaks with his own shit


I saw that and didn't believe it but then he made a custom one for a thread and posted the pic of turds in a toilet. Very disturbing.




Did not see this coming so soon but it was to be expected eventually. Selling out can only net you a cushy job for so long. His connections seem more in the realm of clickbait media so I see him working in that area in the future, if he isn't already thriving in it.


Nice social media platform, Google.


Ironically, Hiro seems to be doing a great job at attracting a following outside of 4chan even while heading it. While moot now is just probably out on the streets doing whatever. Maybe he'll take a position back in 4chan as a mod or something, who knows.


I do wonder if we'll ever see his Admin Emeritus capcode. Not like there's anything to gain going back, though.


True, but there's also nothing to lose.


I wonder how many would actually care if he were to come back. Doubt most people using the site would even know who he is.



People like to paint moot as a sellout, but I never really got that from him. I've always seen him as a regular guy who stumbled into a very irregular situation that he didn't know how to escape.

Moot's reputation is permanently tied to a controversial and largely unprofitable website he started in his mid-teens, based around an idea he didn't have and a community he stopped being a part of fairly early on. If you just wanted to live a "normal" life (get a well paying job and start a family) and you got stuck in that situation, you're probably going to be pretty miserable.

Don't get me wrong: I think moot's been horrible for 4chan. But I think a lot of it came from him not being able to relate to the community after he'd finished puberty. He was the king of a kingdom that he didn't like living in, and as such the kingdom went to ruin.


Yes I'm sure google hired a guy who stumbled into a very irregular situation because they were impressed with his people management skills and canv.ass' success.


That's exactly how I see moot as well. He had to tread a lot of unexplored territory and made the mistakes that are associated with any new frontier. It's true that he was at the right place at the right time, but I also think he ended up being the exact type of admin that 4chan needed. His (former?) stance on internet anonymity was a good one and I'm glad that his voice was out there.
That being said, he's not the tech genius that media make him out to be, but I do think he can claim to have significantly more experience than his colleagues in regards to managing online communities and that's something that should be valued.


He's painted as a sellout because he literally sold out 4chan for some feminist pussy. I'm sure he still has enough not to work for a while.


He literally sold 4chan to a guy who made money off of nettouyoku and 2ch's /pol/ board so he could get a job which would be able to support a normal life.


We have gone full circle. After eight years, once again I find myself in the company of people who believe maybe m**t just didn't know.

In every age,
In every place,
The deeds of men remain the same.


That's my point though. Moot's at the point in his life where he's more or less stuck in the world of social media, even though he doesn't know shit about how it works.


lynx chan sucks desu


anything new happen to it?


Why is all imageboard software written in horrible horrible languages?


very few languages make for good servers


I've noticed that newer imageboards are opting for JSchan (https://gitgud.io/fatchan/jschan/) over Lynxchan.


thats even worse IMO


I can't speak about the code, but I like JSchan's UI and features (websocket, banner page, captcha, loading bars for images, cool themes). What do you dislike of it?


Oh, I cant speak about the code either, i dislike it for all the reasons you like it. I think it looks tacky, and its so easy to set up that it caused an ever larger wave of teens setting up their own imageboard sites for the fuck of it and spamming them everywhere.


regardless of what you pick they're all the same thing


I've been playing around with IB software lately and vichan is still the easiest to set up, and in my opinion the easiest to use too

Also still like it the best UI-wise, both lynxchan and jschan have these shitty navbars that I feel are geared towards "make your own board" stuff or simply sites with a lot of boards and from what I've seen there's no option to turn shit like that off and just use simple boardlinks (maybe there is but it really isn't documented in an obvious way meanwhile vichan config succinctly explains every change you can make to the site)


PHP and Javascript are particularly bad though.


Agree on PHP. I'm not sure how much PHP8 changes, but it's still insecure.
However, is there really a difference between Node and various Python servers?

It's not, he said it'd stay at least until he's figured out some other options.


But the message at the top went from "post your thoughts about the content on /lewd/" to "/lewd/ will soon become a hidden board." and it links to that thread so if anything I think that's what sushimin is going with for now.

Nice advertising


i just came across to it at another site, thought it was fitting here


How many sites and services does he run? Where does he get the money to maintain them? Reading through that "imageboard news" site I just found that he now has a Neocities-like web hosting service, a gurochan, a loli site, a pastebin service, and some things in Russian.


there's also that new Ayashii World spiritual successor


literally dozens, multiple news sites, a (defunct) web archive service, the hosting service you mentioned, at least 15 imageboards and an a large textboard list, which are all linked here https://bbs.kolyma.org/menu2.html (i think?)

a file uploading service, a 4chan archive, a dvach (russian 4chan) archive, a LEGAL DEFENSE TEAM (kplaw)..

and apparently a "SNS service", "nico-nico clone", and a sucessor to the now-closed "yahoo answers" are in the work. as well as a "bbs creator" which allows people to create their own textboard and moderate it. according to a recent post on his personal site, a annual report is due on the 10th, which apparently reports the number of employees, revenue, and expenses, amongst other things, so.. i guess we will have our answer then.


i also forgot to mention the AA editor and "spam prevention" site

basically... alot


Myself and even Trevor have a bunch of software projects that we attach to ourselves or a brand.

If I were to list every software project I've made under the /qa/ sphere I would have to mask my identity with a VPN or ask some friends to post it for me because otherwise it would come off as massively narcissistic and begging for attention.

Meguca remains the superior software.


thread has been slightly touched by a mod


Meguca-based sites feel like a Twitch/YouTube/Discord chat, with people rushing to post as fast as possible (in Meguca's case due to the pressure of being read by everyone before finishing the post) instead of taking their time writing their posts. It's pure hell.


Nah it feels more like a perpetual sticky about a happening.
You should browse more sticky threads during happenings anon you'll know the feeling.


I avoid pinned threads precisely for their high shit/post ratio, which is similar to what you can find on video stream chats of all kinds.


Then why the fuck are you commenting on them if you don't even use it Jesus Christ anon.


Because I used to post in them (pinned threads) until I realized how cancerous they are for the most part, and have the experience required to give an opinion on the subject.


Sticky threads devolve into regular conversations once the initial shock of a sticky eventually passes. Meguca boards with their chaotic barrage of constant posting are more akin to ghost threads during times of blackout.


Even better anon.


Why can't imageboard admins get SSL certificates right? Just put a reminder in your calendar to renew it before it expires, ffs grrr sushimin!!!

Surely, there is DNSBL available out there that can very simply be added to vichan that do this for you

Post your soyjack filter





DNSBL slow down post times and you can't customize them with your own lists or respond to ban appeals with them. DNSBL is like bringing a sledge hammer to open a can of paint.
I meant my modifications of the flood filters though.
Kissu doesn't use MD5 filtering, it uses perceptual hash filters.

Kissu's anti-spam is on the same level of 4chan's but a bit more amateur in nature.


also we backup thumbs and SQL data every 24 hours.
Deleting a post from kissu restores from our archive.

You can't immitate what kissu has without putting in similar effort

>also we backup thumbs and SQL data every 24 hours.
Ota could do this, but it would suck having a 20 hour rollback or something anyway.


I turned it up to higher incase there's spam. It's going to go back down to 20 seconds or something later, probably leave the thread limit up


Did a quick check to measure the damage.
- all but 10 threads on /jp/ are wojak spam
- only one thread on /drive/ isn't wojak spam
-/doog/ was left untouched

- /jp/ spammed up to page 90
- other boards don't seem to have spam, although /om/ only has 6 pages (but since I never go there I don't know if that's normal)
- /2d/ has


>- /2d/ has
oh shit a sni


theres always SpamDB, which doesnt have those downsides


idk what that is, but make a thread about it otherwise because I kind of derailed the happening event discussion with imageboard meta discussion

File:155.57.png (179.97 KB,1090x550)

Here's a screenshot from before a sticky was made. It had more PPM than /vt/ itself.
I pity whoever has to monitor these threads to delete shit posts at such speed.


File:firefox_DsbAj1NzXc.png (289.1 KB,942x992)

The outfit was already revealed and the stream hit the highest peak live viewers for any vtuber stream, then dropped dramatically. I'm going to take a guess that the thread goes the same way and this is the peak activity.

The owner of 4chan House, the image/story repo of board-tans, got his account suspended, causing the site to be down:

Considering how both the vtuber and /vt/'s numbers plummeted immediately after the reveal, yes, they are.


Maybe this fad will finally die.

It has only begun. Netflix announced their "Vtuber" (a literal sheep, lel) some days ago, and it won't be until more companies follow this trend and devour its little spirit when it will truly die*.

* Vtubers won't die, their fans will just become less loud about them just like how regular streamers/let's players ceased to be brought everywhere every second. The existing ones will continue doing their thing, but the novelty of vtubers in overall will wear off.


can't wait


Was it not already dominated by companies? What would you call hololive for example? It seems kinda odd to compare them to let's players when the first let's players were weren't people who were selected by companies to play a crafted role in a squeaky-clean manner.


the phenomona is a 2D face representing a person/character. Not inherently corporate, but is used by them since people are so bored with entertainment(or unloyal to not pirate products) that they'd donate to a personality


>and it won't be until more companies follow this trend and devour its little spirit when it will truly die
I'm honestly surprised it hasn't happened already. Interactive animated mascot characters seem like an eminently marketable idea.

So is nobody going to talk about why and how desuchan is down?


I have an idea why, but I'd rather not say in case it gives anyone attention.


If so, then desuchan will be ruined and i dont want that



desuchan is down
I wonder why...


He's implying it was attacked in some form. It's best not to give attention to the people that do that sort of thing, so it's better to just leave it at that and hope it comes back.


what if it's the canadians again...


A couple of severely autistic pedophiles have been spamming 8chan.moe's /v/ and /b/ boards with pictures of naked children and CP for over 6 hours, all because a mod deleted stock photos of little girls that they posted in a pedo general (which was deleted as well because they started spamming CP), and it's possible that they continue like this for at least another 6 hours while all of the mods continue sleeping and another autist shills his own imageboard. These people did something similar on 9chan one year ago until everyone left /b/ and the rest of the site, and on multiple other now defunct imageboards.
No links or archives of the event for obvious reasons.


put this thread into zombie mode meaning it has no bump limit and it can't die.


Hey this is a long shot but does anyone have the date for the Seven Year Joke stream?
You know for 4/a/?
Thank you.


What's the difference between a zombie thread and a regular cyclical thread? Will the thread keep growing in post numbers instead of automatically pruning old ones until it reaches 10 gorillion posts and crashes the site's DB?


Grow in number indefinitely.

Eventually it will become too expensive to rebuild the thread every time someone posts but then I'll make it cyclical zombie so it disregards the set bump limit, can't die and auto trims after 1 gorillion posts.


It's being actively cancelled from the webring due to the existence and defense of the /hebe/ board now.


it was never an alternative imageboard to begin with. Always was an 8chan clone.


didn't know the webring HATED free speech

More webring drama (just after the one about pedos was partially solved with the creation of a containment board for them and a change in global rules). Somebody decided to buy ads on Facebook for various webring sites (smuglo.li, anon.cafe, zzzchan.xyz, theguntretort.com) and mlpol.net, causing a lot of lulz (yes, I still say lulz) and butthurt in equal parts.
Where it started:
Where it exploded:


Vichan already does "show last X replies", couldn't you do something similar and have paged threads so people don't have to load 10,000 replies.


Yes, paged threads are on the new UI


and you can't "just do it" because it fucks up every javascript file vichan has and would require me to go over every one of czak and hotwheel's ancient javascript


I didn't mean to vichan, just in principle... Ah whatever explaining is too hard


Adding pages to imageboards requires you to reconceptualize the features as a mix of forum function and imageboard function. The best way I've found to do it is through the glass overflowing into buckets.

It's not easy and can be very confusing if the UI doesn't do it properly. I think Kissu is the first to do it and it has a few problems that could be fixed.


> I think Kissu is the first to do it
pixmicat (and recently, kokonotsuba) have been doing it for decades...


Do they do it like cyclicals or forums ? I'm unaware of software that runs on PHP4 and hasn't had any commits in 7 years.


there is a pager at the bottom with each page being a new 1000 posts. the kokonotsuba software was was made in 2020, and pixmicat in 2007 (i think)

no imageboard that uses either of the software is particularly active, though, so examples are few and far between


File:QISaYP3.png (4.6 KB,304x74)

Kissu's works a bit differently to make it easy to access threads from the index.

You access the Recent page through catalog. This is a conventional page that anyone who uses imageboards can understand.
After 150 replies, the oldest one is knocked off like in a cyclical and is dumped onto thread page 1.
These knocked off replies fill up page 1 until a page 2 is created.
I consider this a cyclical style forum system that allows for people to still use imageboards while gaining the storage/bookmarkable abilities of forums and decreasing the load time on pages.


What was there before this "sort by bump" arrangment on imageboard software? Although I don't remember the whole story, I had read in a imageboard that this "sort by bump" was born out of a script, "remix" was it's name by what I can recall, before that script threads were arranged in another way. Sorry, I only know bits of information.


If people think this imageboard discussion is off topicing the happenings, post it in the dev thread on >>>/b/6312 or thread on board.


is cock.li dead? A week ago or so I read that it was going to become invite only but earlier today I noticed the site didn't resolve anymore.

Something is going on with Freenode. It seems that the domain and company was sold in the past to the VPN company PIA, and there were leaked drafts of resignation letters from the Freenode staff. However, apparently all that the new domain owner owns is the domain, and not the Freenode servers. So there's some complications with the new narutard owner conducting a hostile takeover it seems.

This is your friendly local reporting tengu 'bout to lay a FAT egg on you.
Autistic screeching noises can be heard zapping your brain for miles this week. This is of course because of the pedo shitflinging that's taken the webring by storm the last few months. It reached a crescendo when /hebe/, yes THAT /hebe/, was founded on 8gag. Torpedoposting ensued, so you can guess what happened next. Shortly afterwards, it was delisted and cancelled on all other major boards. Responding to complaints, the owner defended it as free speech it in what all present can describe as a massive PR blunder. This statement among others did nothing to rectify the anal damage that had been inflicted. As a result, it is this reporting agency's firm belief that they will not be uncancelled any time soon. When approached for mental gymnastics, Acid responded with
This is clearly an expression of severe regret over my unjustified termination as his PR manager. This tengu is still not coming back.
In other -more relevant- news, the officially licensed Touhou gachashit has finally come to the west. Titled Touhou 「LostWord」 (one word), it features the standard predatory business practices that comes with the territory. With this release, the shoe is finally on the other foot for ZUN's stance on commercialization of his series. This reporter fully expects it to recline harder than ever with secondaries flooding the nation since they are stuck at home with nothing better to do. With each tippy tap of the occultic picture slab, you can rest assured that a little piece of Gensokyo will die right along with my soul.
To the attentive Anon, you may have noticed an increase in tribal shilling from our kind over the past 2 weeks. Pay it no mind, for the owner of this publicly funded reporting agency has given the order that she doesn't want her name to be besmirched in any way. Unfortunately that means you'll have to deal with paid tengu shills, much like you do with the wumao. This tengu wishes that high command would stop acting like the CCP and let it go already. Nobody wants to touch their magical cardboard after the public learned that the price was manipulated by the likes of Elon Musk.
Teenbros around the globe are all coming together to celebrate one last GET on smug/a/. After a long hard road, filled with drama, deplatforming, and destruction, they are slated to reach the million post milestone. It's quickly shaping up to be quite the event, you won't want to miss it. There is even going to be a tea party afterwards. This reporting agency will personally be taking part... If it happens during working hours. Regardless of the outcome, I would like to wish you all luck on your ventures while we warmly wait for the end.
If anyone has a POZ LOAD TIP or HOT TAKE they want to share with their friendly local reporting agency, this tengu is MORE THAN WILLING to perform sexual favors in exchange for information. INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO: coprophilia, henri, kink-shaming, ota trip worship, and allowing you to use Hatate in any way you see fit. Find me everywhere because I'm apparently omnipresent for more details.

This has been your friendly local reporting tengu, signing off.

That's a "proof of work" captcha they implemented to combat spammers that change IP with each couple of posts. Basically it makes your device solve complex math problems before letting you post. The speed it takes to solve them depends on your browser and CPU, so a toaster running an outdated/shit browser will take more solving it than a relatively recent PC running an updated/better supported browser. This captcha is only enabled when somebody has been flooding the site for hours and there aren't enough mods available, not something you have to deal with every day.

zzzchan.xyz down following a security breach of ebin proportions. Turns out anyone with an account could take ownership any board and manage any post. The owner is having a panic attack while he tries and figures out how to deal with it.

yeah so the breach probably affects him as well but he hasn't realized it yet


If you live in a nation that censors the internet, you can use it to visit blocked websites.


i mean, sturgeon or whoever runs Z isn't a jschan contributor. It seemed like he was mostly a community admin, not dev admin.


what version was zzzchan running on, there was a bug that allowed unauthorized users to basically get access to admin accounts but that was fixed months ago, or did the jschan dev fuck up again


Apparently this bug was found two months ago, but since zzzchan uses an outdated version of JSchan the attacker managed to exploit it.

Yes. JSchan (the software) is primarily developed by an Aussie who has a test site at fatchan.org. zzzchan.xyz is owned by a different person who used to be a mod on Fatchan and Zchan's /v/ before both sites went down for various motives.

Predictable.

Imageboards should not be centralized, moreover one individual should not be owning a handful of them.

Two is not a handful.


and 4 is? thats where you draw the line?


Any more than 2 is too many.


I did not know he owned more than one, what other board does Kissumin have?


4taba. The old owner had decided that they didn't want to continue working on it anymore and was going to let the site die. Vermin picked up the site and old domain and continued running the site. Not at all comparable to that guy, who swoops in and buys out sites and then threatens legal action on the basis of copyright infringement if others try to make a new site based on the old one.

Actually. Now that I think about it, maybe "that guy" was being upfront about his intentions all along. Kolyma was an old Soviet prison labor camp. Might as well have named his network "Treblinka" instead, because everything he touches is apparently not just doomed to indefinite confinement, but to death as well.


I got an email once from someone there asking to take the 4taba off my hands


can you name more than one instance that he bought a site or used legal action (gurochan)?

he didnt buy heyuri, by the way. didnt seize it either


how does this guy not realize how transparent he comes off with his constant damage control


think he was trying to sue the owner of 64chan too


ive never heard about that


i dont like that guy either but most of the stories told about him here have no substance...


>buy heyuri
I don't remember if it was the site, the domain or the trademark, but he bought something from Heyuri's other co-admin to keep the site for himself.

Yeah, he was even offering $1000 for info about 64ch's admin (Maki) mafia style, all because Maki DDoSed one of his sites.

He also wanted to buy Lolifox without success.


Heyuri's other co-admin is still the main developer for Heyuri. He sold the site to that guy because he no longer had the personal time required to moderate it. Not that it matters much now, considering the site died activity-wise.

i think your missing the point

its saying that calling a tiny group of websites a monopoly and "too big" is extremely ironic considering the circumstances of the imageboard meta


Nah, I get it. I just thought it would be funny to add that text.


His name is filtered because he's been posting in the thread with an IP that resolves to one of his websites trying to bait drama about himself and create an atmosphere as a tough guy imageboard personality.

Likewise we(cool or myself) will have to take more actions against drama if individuals(or perhaps a collective) continue to post an "us vs them" narrative about Kissu and other sites in a strange attempt to generate publicity and advertise rather than discuss imageboard events/happenings.

Regardless, there are a lot of misinformation about him. Drama is inevitable when there are those dramaqueens claiming outright false information every time he is slightly related to the topic, at anywhere. I think once everything is made clear, there wouldn't be any reason to bring up drama either. They never show any proof at all.

The author of the most accurate Super Famicom emulator has allegedly killed himself/themselves in a fit of depression following an unsuccessful attempt to bring down a Kiwifarms entry on him/them, prompting the twitter outrage mob to spam Cloudfare with requests to pull an 8gag on Kiwifarms and 4chan. This in spite the fact the latter had nothing to do with this and the former's entry being piss relevant in the grander scheme of things (compared to say, YandereDev). Regardless, a significant part of imageboardians celebrate the event of a supposed trannoid's demise (the guy wasn't full blown trans) and the twitter mob keep pushing for more internet regulation to avenge the death of one of their beloved comrades (there are archived /emugen/ posts in which the guy admits that trying to become part of the twitter clique has been a huge mistake in his life since he didn't really fit with their groupthink). All in all a great tragicomedic encapsulation of everything shitty with the modern web.


Could you not infuse buzzwords into news? Anyways, fuck kiwifarms. If I could trade it for LiveLeak, I would do it in an instant.


heh, the site's DoS'd into being offline and showing a statement page


It would be surprising if this'll be the thing to finally end it for good.

>Could you not infuse buzzwords into news?
Byuu/Near (Byuu is a cooler name, so I'll use it for the rest of my post), the creator of the most accurate SNES emulator allegedly killed himself over an old Kiwifarms thread about him. According to various sources, he tried to convince Josh to take down the page by offering him $10k, helping to work for him and even threatening him with the blame for making Byuu kill himself, something Josh rejected again and again. Twitter and similar shitholes have been doing DDoS attacks on Kiwifarms while blaming it and 4chan (even when it has nothing to do with this) for Byuu's death, Josh has uploaded the emails shared between him and Byuu to defend his point, while /v/ermin have mixed opinions on this (some celebrate because Byuu was a transgender furry or something like that, while others lament his death and/or condemn Kiwifarms for it).

Here's the original doc from one of Byuu's close friends narrating what happened: https://archive.ph/McXtE
Here's Josh's response: https://archive.is/qy7TT
And here are the emails between him and Byuu: https://archive.vn/2021.06.27-212420/https://kiwifarms.net/threads/byuu-byuu_nyan-setsunakun0.43056/page-14

I don't give a shit about the drama, I just hope this doesn't kill the development of Higan and bsnes since they're really cool projects.


Hope that doesn't die too, but kiwifarms can burn to the ground

It's ignorant to take social media out of the blame game.

Someone is autistic but has a need for socialization. He turned to social media for help.
It was a mistake, he thought he made some friends here by trying to fit in, but in reality he got the kind who would turn back on him because of his political views and being doxxed that was not his fault. And the kind of mobs who would use him as a weapon to advance their political agenda instead of genuinely helping him.
Hell, he could'ven't even known the existence of kiwifarms if not for his social media "friends" telling him.


KF doesn't deserve blame for making some guy kill himself, but it does deserve blame for being a community of losers who spend their time stalking other losers in order to feel better about their own miserable lives.


KF reminds me of PSAs about bullies being bullying victims paying it forward. They're losers putting down others to feel better about themselves.


You should refrain from generalizing a group just to fit your personal view.


Huh. Old news, but I just noticed that rbt.asia was merged into desuarchive.


I was wondering what was going on with RBT redirecting to desu, but I guess that makes sense now.

Kind of interesting, but during the peak of vtubers on /jp/, the board was faster than even /vt/ is now for a more sustained period. Probably due to the fact that a small portion of activity still remains on /jp/. But what I find most interesting is just how fast /jp/ not only lost activity, but that it leveled off at exactly the peak it hit before the board exploded.


File:furwheels.jpg (1.67 MB,1224x6946)

Hotwheels made a long post on Twitter about coming out... as a furry. In said post he narrates how seeing 8/fur/'s shota mascot made him realize he was a furry, how keeping it in the closet due to the fear of facing "harassment from the alt-right and kiwifarms" caused him psychological damage, how Byuu's death (scroll up on this thread if you don't know about this) made him come out, and how his fursona (a green fat racoon) represents his childhood trauma or something like that.


gay, cringe, and faggot all come to mind reading that
good for him but also no need to write a short story about it makes him look more insecure than “coming out as a furry” already does

That's a pretty annoying captcha.


that is a good thing


File:[Alexvgz] Azumanga Daioh 2….jpg (210.39 KB,1440x1080)

For other imageboards.


can we get some pictures of the challenges


you align some code with a slider
frankly I don't think it's too bad but apparently not all browsers support it


File:4capimg2.png (3.13 KB,298x160)

New captcha API endpoint:

The return is JSON containing two PNG images in img and bg field encoded in base64. The challenge field goes to t-challenge and solution to t-response for posting request.

You slide the bottom image over the top image until some letters show.


idiots are being filtered en mass. i can only hope the post activity stays this low but i imagine people will get used to it soon.


File:1625509724838.jpg (266.18 KB,931x666)

The new captcha is already broken. Someone made a script to automatically get the correct slider position using the exploit in the pic.


is it really "broken" just by knowing the slider position, considering some users don't even need to use the slider after a successful post? this is not what an "exploit" means


This means bot posting must have been really out of hand for them to renege on the "google captcha is all we can afford" thing.

If people are smart (which they aren't) they'd want until the design is more finalized before posting stuff like this.

calle calle


Text-based captcha has already been shown broken years ago. You can find many articles by searching.
Even JDownloader has a built-in text captcha solver.

It's just a mater of time before a new design is broken.
By the way, spamming calle calle worked for old recaptcha.


I wonder how Google will take this. All things considered, 4chan is likely among their largest, if not the largest, single source of Captcha requests. Not that Google would want to belittle themselves by bowing to a Mongolian Yodeling forum, but it must account for quite a significant portion of Captcha (and by extension image, text, and audio) training data, I would think.


It's an OK captcha I think.

The thing is that there are a lot of variable positions and neural networks are subject to missinterpretting noise as signals. Not only does it have to run a lot to verify every position, a good implementation will have to be able to recognize what actually is a letter and what is garbage.


Maybe Google got around to charging 4chan money for the service. They said they were going to start charging money a while ago, which is why Cloudflare switched to hCaptcha.


It certainly makes it weaker.

People pointing this stuff out helps them fix it.

That's true, but Recaptcha was even more broken than text captchas due to the small number of possible solutions, allowing guessing attacks. At this point it's more of an IP blacklist than a captcha.


/biz/ in particular was filled with constant bot spam.


How strange that4chanX stopped working here at the same time 4chan changed its catcha (which doesn't load in 4chanX's quick reply window by the way). Right now the quick reply window is gone, hovering over reply numbers does nothing, and clicking on them reloads the entire page. I'm on the legacy/original mode, haven't tried the new UI yet.


The quick reply here isn't part of 4chan X.


4chanX updated, quick reply window works and I was able to post.


I wonder how 4chan handles spam overall. Yotsuba seems pretty dated, so probably poorly.


Yotsuba probably runs an ancient version of PHP and mootsl's spaghetti, but they have an active developer who is good at dealing with these things.


can you explain this because this makes no sense


Top portion is one position before correct, it always seems to have one pixel width lines that are either black or white. I'm guessing how it would work is just by checking for vertical lines, and adjusting the slider until there are no more vertical lines, thereby solving the captcha.


it isn't solving the captcha. it's just a slider that resolves the captcha. it's just an extra step, not an overall solution. and regardless, captchas are a filter not a full-stop and you'd be disingenuous to suggest this isn't a functional filter.


I disabled uBO on kissu and everything seemed to work again. I wonder exactly what did I bork this time.


Fix the problem and whatever, captcha "unsolved". Beats chess and for a multi-topic site that can't use knowledge captchas(captchouli) I think it's got something going for it.


File:Screenshot 2021-07-05 2318….png (88.7 KB,1362x496)

>you'd be disingenuous to suggest this isn't a functional filter.
How much of a difference has it actually made? I don't care enough to know what's typical of every board, but going based on historical trends on 4stats, nothing seems particularly slower than usual.


Someone on 4chan /g/ managed to OCR their new captcha at 80% accuracy using Calamari and 476 training images:


if it weren't an effective filter then there would be a lot more activity than normal. same activity is not a bad sign.


I really don't get why so many people seem upset about the new captcha. It's not even hard... I guess it goes to show how many people never had to deal with captcha v1.

I guess this is true.


In my case, it's less convenient than 4chanX's noscript captcha + keyboard mode where you only had to select 3 images by pressing their respective keys in less than a second. The new captcha forces me to leave my keyboard and use the mouse (or press Tab various times) to press on the "get captcha button, then makes me move to the keyboard and write the visible characters and press enter, assuming that I get a captcha without slider and I don't have to use my mouse to drag it. Not to mention that the site no longer lets you post "for free" during some minutes before making you solve a captcha, you now have to solve one for every post regardless of which board you are in.
Still much better than the regular Recaptcha, which could take entire minutes or even block you if you refused to suck Google's cock and let them shove trackers down your ass.


Genuinely, why do you still post on 4chan?


File:78789010_p0.jpg (281.48 KB,715x1000)

Nowadays I only use a couple of boards there and lurk a handful of other sites to complement them. 4/qa/'s happening thread and /cm/'s shota thread are the only recurring 4chan threads I post in while being a silent lurker elsewhere.


Honestly I'd spoiler the first one nowadays...

>why is it blocked in my country

no but it's not bad for a burner email. I use that to register on shitty sites, to receive mailing lists, and to contact people on imageboards


File:firefox_4Yp7Ym2Fea.png (127.18 KB,1237x678)

Looking at the post totals it shows there's been a small drop. Whether it continues to drop or not is anyone's guess, but the captcha is a hell of a lot more annoying than recaptcha for those google treated nicely.


someone made a script to fill the new captcha automatically
only tried once but apparently it works about 9/10


File:captcha.png (1.17 KB,260x80)

captcha now served with ellipse windows
the exploit no longer works, but it doesn't address some other kinds of workarounds



this whole thing is incredibly stupid


Knowing /g/, it's dead within the week. Which is a shame since I'd like to not have Audacity relay my info to the NSA.



afraid they'll hear the cries of lolis being edited out of the background of your podcast about mahou shoujo anime?


The captcha solver was updated to handle the slider.

It solves the slider like this:
>>Also is the slider a bruteforce search where you feed the image to the nn and settle on the most probable position?
>This was my initial attempt but there 50 possible offsets and solving 50 images takes about 35 seconds on my computer. So I just select the position of slider that minimizes the percentage of black pixels that have a non-black pixel below them.

4chan then changed the captcha a bit and the captcha solver's author started downloading new images to retrain on.


It's weird that 4chan loves branding its projects as being from 4chan. Even if they took audacity to new heights and made the best audio editor in the world, the name "sneedcity" has already killed it. It makes it look like a joke.


Just install an older version. Not exactly like much ever changes from version to version.


>It's weird that 4chan loves branding its projects as being from 4chan. Even if they took audacity to new heights and made the best audio editor in the world, the name "sneedcity" has already killed it.
I thought sneed was a discord meme.


How....audacious of them.


The point still stands. They named their software after a dumb fucking meme, destroying its marketability. Nobody's going to use a program called sneedcity for serious work.


well, it suceeded in making me look up what this drama is. Never would have known that Audacity changed hands a few months ago.

It's strange to me that people are still so ignorant as to think that mods aren't active there on 4/qa/. Isn't that ban phrase (noo my heckin qa'arinoooo nooooo) itself one of those catchphrases that's now synonymous with that cesspit? I mean, there is a /qa/ board on Kissu (and our own happenings thread that is in reality the only happenings thread) because team 4chan decided they wanted a direct influence on the board itself. That is their board more than any other.
One day I hope people learn that 4chan mods are not reluctant heroes, but flawed cynical people that make questionable decisions.


>One day I hope people learn that 4chan mods are not reluctant heroes
Virtually no one thinks this. Sentiment for 4chan mods is extremely low across the site.

I don't care if it's real or not, I know that people on both sides of the fence post their drama here to make the guy look like a badass or a sociopath and I would say everyone except for the people posting about it know this by now so unless it escalates into something more serious that's negatively impacting kissu, no one cares except the people involved.

Not directly related to imageboards, but unlisted videos are used sometimes, so...
Youtube is changing unlisted videos and turning them into private videos unless people log in to change them back. I'm sure there's lots of older accounts that won't be signing in to revert them, so go back up any unlisted videos you have bookmarked. The comments made on them will be set hidden, too. Seems like a really stupid change, but I'm not a company with power rivaling several countries so what do I know?


Why can't google ever introduce good changes...?


They are good changes, for google.

Google knows what it's doing. They have one of the largest collections of data in the world, and they use it to find what will statistically make them the most money, even if everyone says they hate it.

I've found that the CP spam has been documented by some unindexed forum, or a discord

It has come to our attention that Ganbatte is running a Paedophilia network of spambots.
The lead admin is called Patch is running bots from South Korea and Russia.
As a result some of the chans listed here are currently hosting pizza content posted by the bots and those that are infected are moved to the very bottom of the list until the content is either removed or the site gets seized by the authorities
I suggest you open these links in Tor Browser for the time being.


I would take this with a truly gargantuan grain of salt as the people involved in those places thrive on conflict and conspiracies and it's extremely difficult to find any solid information if it exists in the first place.
This seems like a good site list, however.


Isn't that the mentally unstable faggot who creates imageboards with little to no rules, spams links to them on every other known imageboard and then deletes them after two weeks because somebody pointed out this behavior in a thread? I heard in the past that he had a tendency for spamming CP on sites that "rivaled his", but I didn't know he was responsible for the spam with links to shady "CP packs" too.


For a moment there I thought this was about Hara Tetsuo, the king of Men (漢). That still sucks, though.


File:88772614_p0.jpg (1.83 MB,1325x1600)

Do you guys know that 4gag is completely infested with bots?
A lot of the posts (perhaps the majority) aren’t made by real people.
Maybe you already know this but I want to bring it up...
I’m only beginning to understand how bad things really are...

(Personally, I think the “resident schizos” on 4/qa/ aren’t real people either, they’re bots. How else can you explain the constant flood of utter garbage on the board? 24/7, 365 days a year?)


I mean it probably seems like it from all the posts, but I think that's more the average populace than bots...


I know personally that /biz/, /qa/, and /pol/ are horrific about it.
I'm sure plenty more have them as well.


How do you know this?


https://archive.is/7FdoW (https://blog.kolyma.org/fighting-spam/) is linked on the rentry.co site.

Do you think they were covering up, or at least protecting these sites under their hosting service intentionally, or do you think this post is sincere?


Constant verbatim posts, that are regularly posted and not pasta, but ones that seemingly feign discussion for whatever reason.


I don't know what content they had on their website initially. Beyond petty social engineering those guys don't do anything illegal. They're more interested their USSR roleplay. Idk where that site was even linked anyways.


its on rentry.co/chans - and dont they do hosting for the "ganbatte" people? that was my takeaway


Oh yeah, I know what you're talking about. You see them the most on boards that the mods don't care about.


what >>76761 says. I wouldn't focus on talking about speculation. No one likes these ads on their sites.

Most of the links on that page resolve to 4x13 and by extension sageru


That's true of basically every large open discussion platform, isn't it? I know Reddit in particular is especially bad because of how easy it is to make a bot that just finds popular posts of images/videos from a few months ago and reposts them verbatim. At least with a site like 4chan (or parts of it anyway) it is marginally more difficult for bots to blend in with discussion and there isn't much reason to set a bot up there unless you have a personal vendetta against a particular community.


>At least with a site like 4chan (or parts of it anyway) it is marginally more difficult for bots to blend in with discussion and there isn't much reason to set a bot up there unless you have a personal vendetta against a particular community
1. set up bot to fetch posts from archives
3. worked for accelspammer back in the day every time he didn't make it apparent that it was him




I agree.
There's a saying that goes something like "don't attribute to malice that which can be explained by incompetence". Similarly, I don't think a mass of stupid posts on 4chan is necessarily any sign of botting as much as it's a group of teenagers that are easily entertained, at least when it comes to most 4chan things. For boards like /biz/ or /pol/ with real life implications I can definitely see bots as being fairly common, and /b/ had struggled with bots making porn advertising threads for many years. But 4/qa/? I don't think you need bots to salt fields that are already barren. It's just another team 4chan moderation success story, no grand conspiracy of automation needed.


File:1625782069579.png (542.85 KB,935x955)

Around a month ago there was another vice article about 4chan, for some reason focused on /k/...

Read at your own peril.


I'm not sure exactly how to feel. It's certainly more nuanced than the typical, "hur 4chan bad racist ebil white young men", but it still tries to link it back to real world activist crap that's associated with /pol/, and not /k/. It's obviously written by someone who is a clear outsider, and it definitely shows. The fact that they actually bothered to consult someone who isn't a retard like the 8gag people is good I guess, but I think that came down more to sheer luck than being well-intentioned in covering /k/.

All I can really think to say in response to it is, "Okay?" I really don't get what they sought to do in covering /k/ at all.


I have a bad feeling that ota is dead forever this time.

I hope you're okay oatmeal. I know ota has probably been extra stressful to moderate this year, more than it has ever been before.


It went down for around a month this time last year too. Maybe there's something about this time of year that just came up for which otamin needs to take the site down?


I stumbled to ota a while ago at https://8chan.moe/ota/ and got curious but never looked deeply to it


That's not the ota he was talking about...


I wish someone with actual know-how would write about the problems with 4chan. It's a terrible website used by terrible people, but you need to have experience with it to know exactly why and how.


its greatly over exxagerated. Whining about it all day is whats really terrible


I know 4chan stinks because I've been using it for the better part of a decade. Don't you tell me what is and isn't exaggerated!

Nanochan, a Tor-only imageboard, has been suffering from neglect from its administrators and mods. They seem to only check the site every few days, and the admin seems to check it even less.

They have left day to day management in the hands of a "trial volunteer" by the name "hikari". Trial volunteers have limited power; they are allowed to hide posts from the default view, but can't permanently delete them. Hikari is not a good moderator; he deletes posts because they disagree with his pro-pedophilia opinions, and he is wrongly convinced he can identify anonymous posters on a Tor-only board, claiming everyone who criticizes him is the "scat spammer."

Because the board was getting spammed regularly, one of the non-trial moderators changed the captcha to what is intended to be a harder version, in which the user has to compute the derivative of a polynomial to post. This significantly decreased the posting rate. The supposedly harder captcha is much easier to automate than the regular captcha, and because of poor design, there is a way to spam at a high rate without decoding the captcha image at all.

The change in captcha did not prevent spam, and as of right now the site is frozen, possibly due to a recent spam wave. If so, this would not the first time in recent history a spam wave has shut down the site. Attempting to post gives the following error:
>500: Internal Server Error
>cannot rollback - no transaction is active


I thought nanochan's hole claim to fame was the admin being insane. The mods being about the same seems like the site's in line with it's original objective.


Which one? I remember reading that there were two or 3 "nanochans" due to autistic mod fights.


I don’t think Congress knows how imageboards work. I wonder how slow /j/ is or if they even keep irc logs. I guess they have discord logs now maybe since the janitors have a server. Just not sure what they could even get from 4chan other than mods/jannies power tripping.


They want them to put forward evidence that they weren't involved with the QAnon capitol storming. If they can't provide some form of evidence they plan to take the site to court.

About time if you ask me


I know owning 4chan would be cool and all, but I don't at all like the precedents this threatens to set.


Governments are allowed to investigate businesses that operate in their country. The benefits of free speech don't apply if you try to overthrow the government that offers it to you.


Describing the events of January 6th as anything other than the capital police mishandling their opsec is disingenuous. To then say 4chan or any business is responsible for the government’s own failing is grasping for straws. The government anyways shouldn’t be able to do anything to 4chan as despite its failing it is probably the closest of any of the major social media sites to upholding the spirit and letter of the law in of section 230.


What is this revisionism. Imageboards that promote "free speech" have always been a centerstone of radicalism. It's about time the US get their shit together.


Are you thinking of the hapa supremacist guy? He was running an alternate nanochan on and off, but not currently.


Yeah, that's the one.
I didn't know there were many versions of the same thing. Seems like they're tied together by insanity


I think you are reading more into my post than what I am meaning. Also you misunderstand the principle of free speech. It necessitates the tolerance of what peers call radicals. If there isn't a tolerance for radicals and radicalization then there isn't free speech.


4chan doesn't have "free speech" in the sense that you are allowed by mods to organize illegal events such as this. Sure it allows people to stew in radicalism but saying that's specific to imageboards is wholly disingenuous since even on other big platforms, facebook especially, this occurs. Saying the US gets its "shit together" is asking them in regards to this is asking for them to address a problem of independent people hosting websites and not giant corporations that will adhere to strict laws. I don't want that.


Free speech is destroyed by radicals and requires regulation. Strict adherence to free speech by nature destroys itself.

Mods on 4chan don't delete events that are on the grey area of legality. Various events have worked to promote the agenda of individuals who go against the idea of freedom. It's about time the US gets their shit together and fucks up any platform that promotes damages to the free world.


Who does the regulation? Free speech is promoted by the existence so many diverse view points such that no one view has the power to overwhelm the others. Any sort of regulation will automatically give the regulator a controlling power over all other views. One of the core objectives of free speech is to prevent might makes right scenarios where the only way someone can show the validity of there idea is by physically fighting over it instead of verbally talking about it. The only form of radicals or beliefs that destroy free speech are the forms that promote restriction or regulation.

In the name of such virtuous causes such as "saving the children" or "opposing radicalization" you get reform that further restricts general individual freedoms to combat a fringe population. In terms of internet censorship this usually means making the web more centralized and hard for individuals to stand up on. Especially with the recent pushes for section 230 reform that would inevitably end up with websites being more unmanageable for individuals leading to more control and activity flowing towards corporations.

Personally I find them despicable, but they are damn effective in tricking fools to be persuaded into giving the government/corporations more control over their lives.


Discord does keep logs of everything including images and voice chat. I guess they could check for any talk about the event in regards to deletions and such, but it will be a test to see how long 4chan keeps the IP information. Although, there's certainly people stupid enough to share images of themselves there so who knows.


Regulation exists no matter how hard you wish that it doesn't exist. Regulation is the very nature of society. If a religious society is allowed to bring up people to value the church more than expression of free religion then the church controls speech of those people. If a country promotes nationalism then the country decides what speech is.

Free speech exists in the Western world at the benevolence of democratic governments. If you let another force control it it's gone.

Opposing radicalism is intrinsic to protecting free speech. If a group of people are allowed to discuss together "hypothetical" means to overthrow a democratic government then they need to be regulated because they threaten the existence of free speech.

Section 230 doesn't exist in many countries yet they still promote free expression. However for some reason in the US it shelters some of the worst sites that no one wants around.


I didn't say opposing radicalism was wrong, but that it's a convenient justification for abuses of personal privacy.


You're acting like 4/pol/ and other boards were involved in the unplanned boomer touristic visit to the capitol in any way. The most they did was spam threads about the event, then spam threads about how much it sucked and how retarded everyone involved were. Nothing was coordinated there (they're too paranoid and stupid to do anything), individuals calling for action were disregarded as "glowniggers" and sometimes deleted. The most 4chan got "involved" was a thread on /k/ about a fat fuck wearing patches sold on an online "/k/ommando store" that isn't related to 4chan in any way.


Regulation of speech always existing is not a reason to not oppose increasing it and it does not say anything about if regulation is harmful to the principle free speech
You may think otherwise but I believe to the point of saying I know regulation of speech is antithetical to the principle of free speech. A Free society doesn't decide what speech is; it lets each individual member decide what their speech is and further each individual member allows other members to decide what their speech is. The only interaction a government can have in regards to free speech is through the regulation/restriction of it. There is of course no functional difference between regulating or restricting free speech.


then you are an ally of totalitarianism is the last thing i have to say.


Looks like posting came back at UTC midnight. And apparently the site is 3 years old now:

god I miss when old /qa/ wasn’t completely irredeemable and utter shit



This looks like it goes into detail about what archives there are of /b/. I haven't read it yet, but the length and images and names mentioned makes it seem 100x more informed than the typical write-up.


It's not a bad article. But it and the other articles on the site seem to mainly be a Very Serious effort to investigate why them 4channers are such right wing hitler nazis. The article approaches things from that direction and mostly seems to be interested in the history of 4chan/b/ only to the extent that it can answer that question. Yawn to that. In any case thanks for sharing


I guess it makes sense when you look at their 'about' section:

>Open Intelligence Lab or OILab is an Amsterdam-based collective of interdisciplinary scholars scrutinising online political subcultures on the fringe and lesser-researched corners of the Web.

...OILab follows the provocation that data is the new oil in order to make sense of new political currents in the digital sphere.

Heh. That's quite a strained analogy for the OIL in their name. I guess we're destined to only see papers on memes and politics in regards to imageboards. Maybe it's better this way.


Update: The "hikari" volunteer went on a massive deletion rampage. It was reverted, and his privileges were suspended. Shortly afterwards, somebody started posting child pornography, which has yet to be deleted due to the lack of active moderators.

On the technical side, the side goes down about 1 in every 3 days. It is down right now. One of the users made a text only bunker at:


Why does Nanochan have so much drama involving mods?


Tor and any form of centralization don't work together. Having a mod team will always fail and admins can't be anything more than developers. Trying to treat an onion site as a clearnet site is disaster in progress or leaning heavily on the honor system.


Lack of supervision from the admin, plus most of his mod team losing interest.

>Tor and any form of centralization don't work together
Can you elaborate on why?


policing content is impossible and the people who endorse tor won't let the admin get a good idea about the people's personality leading to bad actors or misaligned team chemistry


It seems like a traditional "staff loses interest" thing to me and that's not limited to TOR. The problem is that the result of that situation is magnified by TOR just like it is with anonymous imageboards over forums with account systems.
Keeping a TOR imageboard clean sounds like a tremendous amount of work.


The sort of people who use both TOR and imageboards are not exactly the most stable. And I'm saying this as someone who is in that bracket (don't worry vermin, I don't use it on kissu)

I still have an old "Lolifox" add-on that replaced error pages with ones featuring that girl and extra buttons.


I think I have alot of these actually but I never share my horde. Pretty sure I saved most of mine from Pooshlmer or iichan or something; hard to remember all those vague hazy days sitting at a computer.
