WELCOME TO I-C-U-P Anonymous 05/04/2020 (Mon) 23:08:07 No.1
STREAM AT https://cytu.be/r/8cup MATCH SCHEDULE ON >>1233 AND >>1234 This board is a the new home to the /icup/ and /8cc/ boards over 8kun.top. Our objective at /icup/ is to provide sports oriented competitions for all boards of the Webring (as well as any other IB who's willing to pitch in) of various sports. Our most well known tournament is of course the 8chan Cup or Inter-Board Cup, hosted...sometimes by our tireless rigger SKF. For more information about the 8chan Cup/Inter-board Cup and all teams competing in it you can visit http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Main_Page The new wiki can (slowly) be found at: https://infinitycup.miraheze.org/wiki/Main_Page [Account required to edit] RULES 1. Global rules apply (don't post illegal stuff) 2. Threads should be about creating new teams for the upcoming Inter-board Cups, as well as discussing new formats (Racing Wars, Handegg, Majoritycrimerateball, Wrestling in collab with 8chanmania) and suggesting new tools to mod and host better tournaments 3. Organizing sponsored and friendly matches among teams; 4. Organizing your own board's team and roster. Match replays: https://pt.neko.bar/video-channels/icuparchive/video-playlists

Alright folks here's the what-for I've been holding administrative privileges on this board for quite a while but I'd really, really like to get in touch with SKF or someone who can host shit once more I don't really have much time to browse IBs and my methods are kind of outdated as far as moderation goes, but I think we need some kinda overhaul of the place.
>>2900 This board only or everything else?
>>2901 Well, I've recently also acquired the wiki, as it was about to get deleted and I didn't want to see all that work gone to waste, but that one is much more of a hands off job
>>2902 It's happened again >>2852
>>2903 This is so weird, I am sure I logged onto it a few times and even left a message just to be double sure Can you still posts edits? I sent a feedback request to the mirahaze guys. In the meantime, if anyone wants to help me moderate this place, be my guest.
>>2904 >Can you still posts edits? I don't have an account there, I just happened to check on it and it had that box. >If anyone wants to help me moderate this place, be my guest Are you the BO? Although honestly I don't see anything in here that requires heavy moderation (at least for now).
>>2909 Actually after seeing two spam posts in here I might go ahead and apply. I'll be honest, I've never moderated any board. If you still want to go ahead, let me know.
>>2910 okay friendo just report me your username
>>2911 Username is ronaldinho
>>2912 all done

>>2913 Thank you. On sadder news Nekobar admin has removed the Peertube instance from the homepage.
>>2914 I've contacted SKF about this today, just in case he gets to read either the e-mail or this thread. Or maybe BO can relay this info to the ICUP staff.
>>2915 Well that's the issue, I don't have his mail address. I don't know if you should share it or not but just in case make a report and send it that way. An update on the wiki: they accepted my claim again and now we're safe and sound. Please make some edits, everyone!
>>2918 Well SKF has actually mentioned it a couple of times in >>2830 and >>2834 so I don't know if a report is mecessary but I'll do it either way. >wiki That's good. Is it possible to create an account in there and be able to start editing right away?
>>2920 *necessary
>>2920 You can edit the wiki even without an account according to my knowledge. It's just that without one you expose your IP if you're not using a proxy, plus you can't add links. http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Main_Page https://infinitycup.miraheze.org/wiki/Main_Page And thank you kindly

>>2922 Well unfortunately it won't let me without an account.
>>2924 Are you using your bare IP or a VPN?
>>2924 You can't edit the main page
>>2926 Is that so? Sorry. >>2925 I'm using a VPN.
>>2927 Try using a proxy. If you want something edited on the main page, just type it here and I will do it myself.
Well, I've sent mails on all the accounts I know of that are still related to the cup in some form and got no results out of it. This is really depressing, but I'd like to ask any of the old guard (Oxfordcoma, Cotton, SKF) if they're still around to please get in contact using the board.
>>2933 I've decided to try and contact SKF through other means as well. Hopefully third time's the charm.
>>2952 UPDATES Well, I managed to actually get in contact with him, SKF is alive and kind of in a tough spot right now, so I don't think he'll be streaming, sadly. Hopefully we can find a substitute, or he can get his life back on track, either way best of luck to you, brother.
>>2993 Well, that's a relief and a worrying sign, anon Thanks for checking though
NekoBar owner here, I was contacted regarding the archived matches, does anyone want them still or can I get rid of the files?
>>3108 Could you load them on anonfiles and repost them in the other thread where anons are archiving the matches?
>>3108 Hello, I'm the anon running the new archive mentioned by >>3110. Is there a way you'd like to get in contact to give me all of the videos?
>>3124 Hey, is this under control? Otherwise I can try and reestablish email correspondence with them.
>>3198 I emailed him a while ago and I haven't got a response, so I think you need to do it again.
>>3203 Have you tried mailing SKF?
>>3204 I could try again, but I think BO has better ways of reaching to him.
>>3124 Anon if you're in charge of the new archive, let me know how I can help. I have full, uncut streams and many individual matches cut up. If you give a shit about my vision here... I wanted the cut-up matches to be on a single, watchable channel. For the streams, the half-Cup used to have a website that would store the raw videos as files for access. I want one of those here. So if someone wanted a 3 hour MP4, they could download it for themselves from the site. It wouldn't be watchable there, but it doesn't need to be. Again, only if that's possible.

>>3226 Hello SKF. Since you have both the full streams and the matches cut up feel free to send me all of those. Hopefully it's the full Nekobar archive we had if pic related was up-to-date. >spoiler What we're using currently is an account on the Internet archive, which has the playlists hidden. This means that the only way to find those is to link it directly, and right now we have two playlists >>3136. The idea is more or less to separate playlists in both cups and versions (eg. one playlist would have the matches, the other one the raws). I don't know if this is what you'd prefer or not.
>>3228 (me) I'm not honestly too sure what to do about the idea of having an entire site for the archives like half does. Could work as another site, but I don't know too much about maintenance costs and shit to dive into it. In any case, for now I want to continue with the last day of the Gcup because I counted roughly 3 or 4 matches to be salvaged from my copy of the stream, but since you have everything still, shoot me some links either here or at the e-mail in the post. And one last thing: welcome back
>>3226 Re-watchable site: I think hosting unlisted clip videos on archive.org that get linked to/embedded on another site (or even the wiki) is the safest and incidentally cheapest solution. Take the example of 4CC's designated site implying.fun , which is insanely slow (its not just me, right?) and a single point of failure (what if the owner loses interest or is incapacitated without handing over?)
>>3249 That's what I was doing before with Nekobar. I'm going back and forth between Rumble and Odysee as the host site, I'll let you guys know when I've made a decision on that one.
>>3254 I would argue that for static video files, neither. They're volatile like nekobar was. archive.org has a proven track record, no for-profit crap or trackers, and enough invested groups that it basically can't be allowed to go down. When an alt-tech site becomes unpopular or runs into legal trouble, it will often just fold. The streaming host itself is different, that can be volatile as you want and if those platforms allow the kind of dumb edgy crap we like, then that's wonderful.
Uploading ICUP 6 raws to Archive. Need to stitch together some video for the missing days as both Ox and myself encountered some internet hiccups during streaming. Once those are (re-) rendered, I'll add them to the list.
>>3265 I forgot that I recorded the final day in higher quality, the raw is 15 fucking GB. So be it. Up it goes.
GCUP Raws are uploading now. Due to what happened with the internat issues in 6, it looks like I recorded them in bunches. There's no full "Raw" for Day 3 of the Group stage, as I recorded things match-by-match directly via OBS. So those Raws will look incomplete, but every game will be in the archive when it's all said and done.
fuck it, got the three ICUP 4 Raws I had uploaded too.
For future reference, archive allows multiple uploads I'm feeling like a retard for finding out just now
Moving on to getting the ICUP 1 stuff I had pulled from Dailymotion.
>>3337 SKF you have to reupload two of the files without the slashes. Archive has turned them into directories. https://archive.org/download/ICUP1
>>3339 They might be able to just rename the individual file and move it into the base directory. Much easier than a reupload if it lets you do it.
>>3339 >>3343 Easy enough. On it now.
Are there any videos from ICUP 2 to be uploaded to the archive?
>>3352 Those seem to be lost, but I did find a semi-incomplete cache of post-match pictures that show the results.
Update board flags pls?
