Updated the CSS to mimic the old one, how do we look?

Very glad this got traction although i didn't know the BO spend his time at JW
BO, you exported the threads from Julay with the guide Robi made? The BO of /k/ may need it
>>67 Naw, I'm too retarded and pressed for time for that, I'm just backing up the important threads and work from Julay Though I must be honest, I'd like to fund my own IB dedicated to arts and crafts, it seriously pisses me off I've had to relocate my boards four times over because either gayops or agent provocateurs who want power over meaningless topics.
>>32 Added your css, thanks!

I know that /loomis/ usually has a drawthread, but why does this one have requests? I may end up dropping some if its not a problem, I guess.
Welcome back /loomis/ we missed you guys
>>99 Bear in mind that thread just got ported over from Julay so some of them will be quite old.
>>99 >but why does this one have requests? Since /loomis/ would see art beggars every once in a while I felt it more appropriate that they had a single thread dedicated to them, so they can be redirected there. If you're the kind of artistic anon who likes to take on requests, you can check of them, if you think they're just freeloaders you can just hide the thread and be done with it.
>>104 Its not that. "Drawthreads" here were always considered generic threads where people posted art they did and asked for criticism.
Welcome Back!
>>105 Should I change their title then? What would be a good title though? "Beggar's Corner"? "Ask and receive?" >>106 Thanks, friend!

>>107 Well, despite saying all that, I think "Drawthread" is the name outsiders recognize as "the location to request things". Maybe editing the OP to say this isn't the usual /loomis/ drawthread could work. I don't know. Anyways, I told a few drawfriends about this board reviving. You shouldn't advertise only on /v/'s cakehole. I don't see posts anywhere else, too.
>>26 The first 3 MEGA links seem to be down.

>>109 marks /v/ has made less art than /monster/ for 5 months now. and this is when it was back on 8chan. you can see this trend on 8booru. anyways someone advertised it on /monster/ on both their art resource thread and their draw thread.
>>109 >Maybe editing the OP to say this isn't the usual /loomis/ drawthread could work. I don't know. Duly noted, I'll brainstorm some ideas and edit it with the ones I think are the best, while also making the REAL /loomis/ drawthread more visible. On that note... Anything else I can do to make the board better for you? > Anyways, I told a few drawfriends about this board reviving. Thank you so much. I wish to make this place as cozy as possible while waiting for another side project that may or may not involve several boards. >You shouldn't advertise only on /v/'s cakehole. I don't see posts anywhere else, too. I mainly did so because I'm sure drawfags from there pitched in on old /loomis/ from time to time and their own /loomis/ was a barren wasteland. Probably going to see if the guy who owns 8moe/loomis/ wants to cooperate with us, don't know much about him anyhow.

>>213 How the fuck is /loomis/ getting so much traction?
>>256 ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Accept it...
>>256 It gives the people what they want.
>>189 >>264 Something feels off. Anyone?
>>266 If the BO promoted this in bad places then the fix is already in and it's a matter of when instead if this boat is going to be rocked. /v/ already had someone at the helm who didn't listen to his userbase and opened the doors to bad agents that ousted him, at least some of us can see something's up as for starters /loomis/ rarely had this much activity and people rarely discussed those sort of things, although it's early in the game and there's also almost no one feeling depressed like in the old place either. If you want more examples you have >>259 >>213 And while it's something with the heart in the right place, pandering to what people know instead of setting our own rules, regarding the title of "Drawthread", is already a precedent being set up.
>>268 I see nothing wrong with >>213 or >>259 , explain.
>>268 I don't think it's exactly the BO shilling the board, it's more likely to be crossposters and other newfags doing it. /hgg/ has had similar problems of people posting links to the board everywhere they don't want it to be posted in.
>>269 1. Inter-webring fling out of thin air unless an 8k incident went over my head. 2. xDposting Not saying they are elite beat agents trying to subvert us into drinking soy, i just find it odd. Might be the early days syndrome. >>270 See: >>114 I feel uncomfortable throwing rocks at the BO, so far he has been shining and the CSS has also been implemented AND fixed. Makes me want to draw again.
>>271 1.Julay imploded and you should've seen it, 8moe sucks, and there are a few more chances for /loomis/ having appeared in a different bad website. 2.Eh. Posting about this board on 8moe should be fine. Listen, I'm talking about actual problems. Someone posting a emoji is cancerous but its not time to say shills are coming to destroy the board.
>>272 Agree. Also i saw the implosion first hand, a combination of several incidents which are mostly from foreign manufacture. Hope i get some drawings by this weekend and see if i can upload some PDFs.
>>268 >If the BO promoted this in bad places then the fix is already in and it's a matter of when instead if this boat is going to be rocked. Then I guess I'll just have to be the best BO you've ever seen, I promise you I'll do everything in my capacity to make this a board you wanna use instead of glossing over it occasionally. Any grievances you have, come here and I'll try and do something about them.
>>271 >I feel uncomfortable throwing rocks at the BO, so far he has been shining and the CSS has also been implemented AND fixed. Makes me want to draw again. Glad you liked the CSS, but it's not mine! Some intrepid anon has been making a splendorous one for quite a few iterations of the board. It truly feels like you're posting on a canvas, isn't it? Ah right, the megas... I gotta be on the level with you: the starter packs are stuff that I find on drawthreads or online in general, they don't have any true rhyme or reason to them but they're fun to browse and occasionally you may find something that sticks out and really speaks to you. I'll update them right now, so check 'em. If they get nuked, notify me.

>>290 You are already doing a great job, i cannot ask of you when i haven't supported this place like i should. Keep going without fear, just don't be hesitant to use force if things get ugly.
>>379 >Keep going without fear, just don't be hesitant to use force if things get ugly. Got it. I do have some more art related stuff, but it's not properly /loomis/ based so I'll wait for the board to pick up before adding them.
>>270 Well, I'm generally not one to shill (I mean, outside of places that are already interested in the board in the first place), but if you've got any good ideas for places that might be interested in coming here, do whatever you want. I'd actually appreciate some exposure like that.
Huh, activity died down after the first two days, uh. Let me at least share this here before I lose it again: https://twitter.com/kurosuke033/status/1240762088223432704

Like many boards after the bunker saga, we are scattered. People who used /loomis/ might've just been so demoralized they gave up. Exploring the webring is the biggest casual filter in recent times. The fact we have around 4+ different sites to choose from doesn't make things better. Theoretically, the best solution is to just roost and nest somewhere, adding URL signatures to drawings we do and see if people wanna check it out. I don't know, I'm just throwing things out.
>>405 Hah, it is partially my fault for not keeping up with the advertising. Sadly some real life stuff came up two days after I got it started and it won't be over until Sunday. But rest assured, I'm not giving up on /loomis/ at all.
>>26 On a scale of erotic adult nudity to getting on an FBI watchlist, what level of lewdness is OK for this board?
>>490 The board is NSFW so technically it's ok as long as you spoiler it. If you're referring to loli then I don't know

Where did all of these /loomis/ splinter boards come from all of the sudden? I should have known people wouldn't have taken how shitty the new 8gag rebrand is sitting down-but if anyone'd like to hang out with us over there (there as in "8kun.top/loomis") we're still at it, for better or worse.
>>588 I thank you for your offer, but I refuse. 8kun has terrible performance issues and it's a dying website. If the rumors are true, there's a big reform coming your way, too. This place is pretty comfy.
>>589 anon.cafe is comfy.
>>588 Nice construction. I usually use very rough sketches for construction and then clean them up onece or twice. This allows me to modify the animation quite a bit between the steps, which gives me the freedom to play with perspective and foreshortening.
>>588 From what I've seen, cafe/loomis/ is a different community entirely to 8kun/loomis/, with cafe failing to really poach any users, and 8kun moving as fast as ever. I believe art discussion and sharing has overall increased between the two boards' pph.

>>593 Thanks, it's not my design to be honest. I'm just following along with the "AMB Real Animator Training" material. It's good stuff! >>598 Oh yeah, I'm not butthurt about it or anything. I was just surprised to wake up one day and find that my five year old board was quite successfully recreated elsewhere on several different websites. I can tell the BO here cares about the board's purpose as much as I do and that's all that matters-you've all even contributed your own content to the overall design such as the spoilers which are really well done. I'm happy! The only difference between us as far as I can tell is that I don't care for hosting local request threads, but I also understand that art requests are a big part of chan culture back to the beginning. I would rather see users-should they so choose-to fulfill requests purely out of self-interest and on other boards where they can bring positive attention to themselves and/or their social media. An unpaid request is still a "transactional" thing in my opinion; the person who requested the art gets something they want with zero effort, you the artist whether you've spent ten minutes fulfilling the request or five hours should get something out of the deal as well, even if it's something as flippant as a few more (You)s, a new follower or two on Twitter or even a new long term poster on this board of yours by shouting it out on delivery. Unfortunately none of that can really happen if the request is fulfilled on the board itself. Just how I personally about it, I'm not telling anybody what to do or how to do it. Anyway! Keep it up guys, I like what I see so far; I hope your board grows strong and lots of anons are able to improve their art. That's what it's all about.
>>546 >got tangled with RL shit No Vols?
>>668 Sadly it's just me. I've asked to another couple of people to help me out with the administration though.
Kunt's doing a drawpile now. This one's from yesterday.
Didn't see any resources thread so I wanted to share this website if anons ever need poses https://webapp.magicposer.com/ It works for me so it may work for someone else
How would you guys feel about an official chat, like with a discord or an irc group?
>>765 why?
>>766 Just curious. Might be a good way to make different language learners mingle.
>>768 >A good way to make different language learners mingle That sounds reasonable but i think the board you are looking for is /lang/. This is /loomis/, we draw things with pencils or plastic touchpads here.
>>769 Ah, my bad! I had both open and I must have made a mistake...
>>770 But since you're here, let me tell you something >Forcing even more people to use discord or miss out You need to go away.

Note to all artists who only upload to twitter and don't care about image quality: What's the point?
>>825 Given that I've recently heard several Gook twitter artists had to clean their whole archives because of censorship laws, very little outside of having more exposure I guess. Fuck most social media.
>>826 That's not the point, exactly.
Hey BO, are you the one that made the /loomis/ on 8moe?
If anyone wants a comfy to post art, gains, and discuss development and more, here's a place to post; https://matrix.to/#/!sjMcOGrPkRfWXFaSmb:matrix.org
>>906 Sadly, no, I'm just a rando bloke But I'd like to cooperate if he's up to it
>>945 I linked your board on mine just for the record bb, I'm also responding to users here when I can and trying to keep that Drawpile thread current. Keep the spirit alive. The .css on .moe got borked this morning so, admittedly I have to say this board is looking quite fancy today if I do say so myself.
>>941 Why not here?
Where's everyone
The mega links are all dead. Not the folders themselves, but the files - everything is gone from the folders. Was this a sabotage attempt by someone? Seems odd that specifically the contents are gone. Also, is this fixable?
>>1069 I don't fucking get it, my dude, they removed all my files from all my megas, fucking kiwis
>>1070 > I don't fucking get it, my dude, they removed all my files from all my megas, fucking kiwis. That happens if you post the links in public places. Here are some art books: http://libraryfyuybp7oyidyya3ah5xvwgyx6weauoini7zyz555litmmumad.onion/archives/books/arts%20%26%20drawing/
>>1071 Actually I figured it out after a while, I hadn't logged in for a while and lost the credentials to the associated mail. They deleted it as the account was "deactivated" to them. Whatever, I can post them again, I have them all backed up locally Also thanks for the link
>>26 Hey guys, think you've gathered as much, but I've been unable to check on the board regularly for some time. I'd like to give ownership to somebody else. If you think you can handle it, hit me at the mail in the email field. Sorry about letting the board go but I don't see any way to bring it back up to how it used to be.

This is a reply to this post on 8chan.moe http://4usoivrpy52lmc4mgn2h34cmfiltslesthr56yttv2pxudd3dapqciyd.onion/loomis/res/5168.html#q5168: >>5168 > avoiding nudity Are you serious? If we already have this low effort spam-looking thread, then we can also use it to discuss this topic. What's so wrong about nudity? It's the nature of humans and living matter. The sexual organs are just another part. As I see it, the one claiming that displaying genitals is shameful, is himself someone who is shameful. He spreads evil in the world. Evil which hurts people. If people weren't conditioned into believing that the naked body was to be looked down upon, we wouldn't have all these issues. Also a lot of degeneracy would just disappear as a consequence. How does a man even dare to look down at Gods creation. The insolence. P.S. If you read this message, please post a notice on 8chan.moe/loomis that I migrates here. It's always the same with glownigger sites. And if the site is not a glownigger site, it becomes a glownigger site when it gets too popular. Pic related shows that I was right about LynxChan derivatives requiring a captcha. It doesn't even work properly. I'm already sitting here for 15minutes trying to get this to work. Looks like they finally admitted it and now go the glowing route Kohlchan went down. "You have a valid block bypass." It still needs validation. " "Please download this glow-script and run it on your machine." If I manage to make this message somehow goes through, well...fuck this site. I'm out. (I didn't manage to make it go through their new system, so I post this on anon.cafe. I'll retreat to anon.cafe/loomis and ask the current admin there to give me mod priviledges. Someone with enough recources should just finally host an imageboard that could be integrated into the webring and isn't cancer. zzzchan managed to do it. smuglo.li also works. anon.cafe also works. (even though anon.cafe also uses LynxChan)

I'm going to start posting here instead of on 8chan.moe. I'm hesitant about potentially splitting up an already fractured community, but .moe's days are numbered. Keeping the 8chan name is only going to increase the site's notoriety and attract either people who want to destroy the site or people who read about 8chan in the news (read: underageb&s). The name puts a target on the community and serves no other purpose than to remind us of a past to which we can never return. There's also some brewing metadrama involving pedophiles, and their continued presence on the site is a liability. Regardless of how radical your ideas about free speech are, a large population of pedos is only going to encourage more attacks against the site. On top of all that, there's also some reasonable concern over the site's administration. I don't really know very much about Acid or Codexx or their intentions. I think Mark is mostly an incompetent BO who at least means well. That said, I don't post on /v/ too often, so I don't have much to say about his moderation style. I might make a final post on .moe to let other anons know that at least a few people are deciding to make the jump. I think it will be better for users to migrate long before disaster strikes and regrouping becomes much more challenging. >>1131 And I see I'll be in good company. >And if the site is not a glownigger site, it becomes a glownigger site when it gets too popular. This is also one more point to consider. Glowniggers aside, increased popularity on imageboards tends to correlate with declining post quality.

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.
>>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.
