>>1151 > It says "user not found", you made the account, right? I didn't create any account. First come first serve I guess. Good job mr. fed. You truly are really helping this world become a better place. (I can hardly believe that these people actually think they are the good guys. Maybe they know that they are the bad guys, but simply don't care.) > I think this went over my own head. I do not know how to make you an account that satisfies your standards nor could i decrypt that due to my retardness of op-sec. >>1134 had my public PGP(GPG) key in the body of the message. gpg --import <keyfile> Then you wtite a message in a different file and encrypt it using the previously imported public key. gpg -ae <message-to-encrypt> The resulting .asc (ASCII-armored) file can then be copy pasted publicly on the imageboard, because only I can decrypt it, because I'm the only one who has the private key(in theory). I've nuked my hard drive and OS after trying to get rod of some glowware. I'm currently learning some more system administration, while setting up a new OS. Which means, it will take a bit until I can create an account and post art again.
Looks like no one created an account. I misunderstood what you meant. I have now created an account with the name "Artchad". If in doubt, blame the feds. :D
artchad name test
role trip code
I guess the role trip code works. I just don't have a role yet. BO, you can delete the spammy posts if you want.
There is also >>45 I just noticed. You might want to sticky that thread. Others could use it to request mod privileges.
>>1148 >>1146 >>1131 So is anybody going to make a thread regarding the migration? I suggest somebody make a meta thread or something explaining what's going on. As much as I would like an excuse to finally leave cake-kike prison, the drama you guys are referring to seems overblown. The general population at large either doesn't really give a shit about board politics or it's been discussed and moved on from. So unless some convincing gets down around there, all I see coming from this is a bunch of complacent anons who are fed up with moving their home base and staying. As for me, I'll go where the wind takes me, but I see no point in splitting an already small community, especially when the drive to do so is this minimal.
>>1176 fuck off mark
>>1176 Do what you want to do. I posted >>1131 to inform people. I didn't want to just disappear from 8chan.m*e without a message or without providing a reason. I'm here for the time being until the wind carries me somewhere else. ;D
>>1178 M8 I meant posting about this on .Moe. Nobody is going to see what you posted here. If you want people to effectively jump ship we should be having a collective discussion there. If all the drama that's going on eventually does cause .moe to implode everybody is just going to stay there until it does. But if you want to stay on an even deader board and samefag to make it look lively, be my guest. >>1177 schizo over here looks like he's well prepared to do so.
>>1181 Fuck off already nigger, you are just making the fall harder from .moe to here if it happens, which i doubt in the near future at least but the posts stay up.
>>1181 Samefagging is not something I do. It's not healthy for the imageboard nor your psyche.
>>1181 Anon's right, a migration from .moe can't happen without actually telling people. It'd be worthwhile to compile a summary of grievances and concerns, since I suspect many of the anons who still post there are the kind of anons that don't really pay much attention to goings on and the site as a whole; they are mostly concerned with having a somewhat active community. Off the top of my head >Mark spoke with journalists about 8chan for 100 bucks, allowing himself to be used by the media to create a negative image of 8chan and to attract the absolute worst kind of attention to the website. >Mark has a long and storied track record of terrible moderation practices on /v/ >Mark continues to advertise the website on Twitter >Keeping the 8chan name brings no benefit to the users and will only lead to attention from the media and normalfags >Appeasing a community of pedophiles and repeating the same mistakes from the website's history >Still hasn't properly integrated the webring plugin, leaving webring boards buried on the boardlist under a pile of dead boards. -- https://archive.ph/eiQHX >Acidman is a redditor and a porn addict (and probably has a liking for interracial porn) -- https://twitter.com/AcidOverlord -- https://www.reddit.com/user/AcidOverlord Reply with anything else big that I missed. I'd like to get a reasonably convincing post written up for a thread so we can get the rest of the /loomis/ posters consolidated, ideally.
>>1193 > Reply with anything else big that I missed. I'd like to get a reasonably convincing post written up for a thread so we can get the rest of the /loomis/ posters consolidated, ideally. The software doesn't allow me to post. That's all for me. I also want to support anon.cafe, because this place has a comfy community. And the webring benefits from it as well.
>>1131 I'm the dude that made the post there, coincidentally I found this other board lol Thanks for the advice, I've been having trouble getting into the habit of drawing lately :/ And I posted about your departure there
test message from links from OpenBSD
>>1072 Pls do so? Yeah I don't think they just delete files, but the whole page, if they have a problem with it
>>1072 Please post again, it's been 6 months almost and the megas are still busted
Is the board owner still active got some questions about this board that might be of help to u?
>>1396 Is it still okay to ask the questions lol
>>1440 makeover time since we finally have independence
Very well, i am going to finally nuke the place with a new image and unofficial name, perhaps /draw/, due to the next reasons: a) A board to start "anew", a CSS to "fit" what hypothetical newcomers (all 2 or 3 of them) might see as something not quite related to the current image b) Said current image being from a distinctive board which, for some reason i haven't really deciphered after lurking just a bit in the .moe place, has shat on us here despite previous good natured interactions from their side and i think from ours. I have my theories but they seem petty for the perceived backlash, from my point of view, so might as well forget. For the sanity of every party involved we might as well ramify into another direction to avoid further gear grinding, whatever the causes were and what better than this than amicably stop using what they consider "their" image/legacy or, at least what i understand, their BO's ideas. I respect this but i do also think many some a couple of us still are in the right to avoid using sites of dubious reputation like .moe, hence our once righteous position of staying instead of what some may perceive as trying to divide. c) To refocus the subject, which should be more general. Currently it is general but the culture permeates it as artistic human figures. A new face might change perception. In this procedure i will take the next steps: 1) Archive every thread so far, first capping everything in .png form and then saving individual files 2) Selecting a few that will stay up and then delete the rest 3) Probably start a couple of threads to fit what the hypothetical activities or archives will be 4) Make the CSS itself, which i suppose will be based on a paper grid pattern using in beginner's drafting, then put some new text here and there 5) And use it once in a while to serve a more general usage, Drawing, Drafting & Design of most everything, both on paper and in software and 2D/3D, and not really focused on human figures and artistic drawing but everything that the hypothetical users will like to discuss. Seems overly detailed for such a small venture but many did use this place before so might as well be respectful and planned about its memories. Obviously this is open to discussion if someone gets to read this somehow so i will probably start actually doing the deleting in a week's time or maybe a wee bit later to wait for something somehow.
>>1467 better not fuck up the archiving or i will be pissed
>>1467 Awesome was wondering what was up. I missed this place. I am gonna start posting again.
>>1278 seconding this, I came here to take advantage of all the books and resources available and nothing is here.
>>1475 alternatively is there an anon here that can put up another mega with all the former links? please? I'd really like to pick up drawing as a hobby

>>1467 >has shat on us here despite previous good natured interactions from their side and i think from ours. >amicably stop using what they consider "their" image/legacy or, at least what i understand, their BO's ideas. I'd like to apologize for any misunderstandings that had taken place in the recent past, but I have zero antipathy towards this board or the people on it; I do not think of our boards as competitive with one another and I'm sorry if that impression was ever given. Especially after having spoken to the original BO directly not too long ago, any initial questions or uncertainties I had about the existence of this board had long since been answered. Going forward you can do as you please of course, but I just don't want there to be any undue animus about this subject in particular.
I don't post on this board, but I found a Loomis Urbit group. Does anyone here have anything to do with that group, or is that not an uncommon thing?
>>1478 No one I'm familiar with-could just be a study group focusing on Loomis material.
>>1479 >could just be a study group focusing on Loomis material. That's kind of what I figured.
Anyway, I made an email so we can keep in touch loomisadmin@protonmail.com Hope to hear from you. Take care.
>>1481 What happened to the 8chan /loomis/ board???
>>26 What the fuck is this autistic shitpost of a board?
>>1539 It's about drawing.
>>26 Please be aware that /retro/ was completely destroyed overnight during a slide attack similar to the one that was attempted on /k/ recently. >>>/retro/3176 Please adjust your board's thread rate limit accordingly BO!
Are the mega folders are empty.
Hello! I am the new board owner, croquis. This board has been through quite a lot over the past couple of years, and I would LOVE to restore it back to how it was. Unfortunately it's in quite a scattered state right now, and until I have a plan to get everything in order I'll just be posting here. With that in mind, here are the biggest issues I see right now: >Merging threads into each other/QTDDTOT/deleting unnecessary ones >Restoring dead links for references, tutorials, guides, etc. (all the Mega links in the OP are empty, except for the drawthread resources) >Consolidating guides/references into one place for easy access If you have any suggestions, please reply and let me know.
>>1667 I don't think thread consolidation is necessary. Making a QTDDTOT and encouraging small questions to be posted there can help to focus eyeballs on them, but it can also stifle people from making new threads and give the board the impression of being very stale. Admittedly I haven't used /loomis/ at all in years so I don't know what passes for speed around here, but I think that anything that gets in the way of anons just talking about stuff would discourage them from posting. I think running a weekly drawing club check-in could help anons to keep themselves accountable, but that also requires you be accountable.
>>1667 Hello BO, longtime lurker here. Thanks for restoring links to working order. It's important to preserve these things, what with the globalists' push to memory hole things on everyone. Good luck with your efforts! :)
>>1671 Looking through those dead Mega links we lost a LOT of content judging by the folders alone. If there is anyone that has anything from there saved, or otherwise knows of another place online with a large resource archive, please post it in >>1647 and let me know.

The board CSS background image is broken as it's an old imgur image. If you want to fix it, you need to replace the imgur url in the CSS. body { background: url(https://i.imgur.com/Cdgs5rx.png) no-repeat center fixed, #fafafa repeat-x 50% 0%; color: #303030; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 10pt; }
>>1679 body { background: url(https://anon.cafe/.media/c8eabd3125f92218110b82be91fc2c7681a23019e49c040989c883b7e16e81e2.png) no-repeat center fixed, #fafafa repeat-x 50% 0%; color: #303030; font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 10pt; } Like this
>>1679 Hmm. That image has a different background color. Maybe the CSS theme is different now.
Open file (407.81 KB 1451x571 Cdgs5rx.png)
>>1681 Ah. This is the correct image on wayback machine. It has a transparent background.
>>1682 Done.
>>1684 I probably should have been more clear that you only needed to change the background bit as the other lines in the CSS are important. That is unless you meant to remove the other bits of the theme? Here's what it should look like. https://pastebin.com/y131wj6v
>>1685 How about now?
>>1686 Lookin' good
