With Julay and Fatchan both gone, could this place evolve to be the next "center" of the webring? If so what can be done about it?

Anon.cafe is not a venue for inter-site drama and we are not the Missouri for whatever spat is being had this week. Take it elsewhere. >>13321 Thank you.
>>13322 Could you have at least archived it before deleting it nigger? The guy doesn't want to repost it so it must've been something damaging.
>>13323 >Could you have at least archived it before deleting it nigger? Kek. Couldn't 'you?
>>13324 I was too busy playing video games so I didn't get to see what happened until now.

Oncoming Death of /r9k/ Anonymous 05/04/2020 (Mon) 07:07:18 No.13163 [Reply] [Last]
It seems like it's the end for us bots. If any of you (robots) are reading this I'm sorry it has to end this way for us. It seems like this place, this name, which we called home will soon become naught but a memory. It might be a bit pathetic to be sad about an imageboard but I am. All these years of conversing with friends, with brothers will all be lost in time, like tears in rain. I considered all you bots friends and to me /r9k/ was truly like a band of comrades all with shared purpose and shared experiences. Unless something happens to completely alter our course then I'm afraid that the momentum is against us and so this may be goodbye. May seem overly dramatic to make this post at this point but I'd rather make it now while there's still some cohesion rather than when we're truly dead Feel free to delete this if you feel it doesn't fit in /meta/ (remade due to fucked formatting)

>>13228 I don't know anything about bigguy but judging by >Probably would've worked too since it's clear the fucker was a massive pussy He doesn't sound too different to me so you can still take a shit.
>>13231 The basic rundown on the story of fucker that took over after you is... >the board is BOless >a dolphin fucking retard with autism posted some unsavory links on r9k and becomes a known character similar to certain testicless fiend only, somehow, even more autistic. >skip to BO transfer >dolphin fucker tries to diguise himself and take over the board >big guy gets board instead >things are good for a few weeks but dolphin fucler spams the board and temporarily downs anon cafe >skip a day or two and things are back to normal >skip a few more days a thread gets shat up by a literal nigger and a literal faggot and people start wondering what the fuck the BO is up to >two days pass without BO doing shit >meta gets a shit ton of complaints about BO not doing shit >BO being the absolute pussy he is cracks at the anons complaints and like a petty bitch gives the board to the dolphin fucker who proceeds to delete it. You'd have to try really hard to be this fucking retarded.
>>13234 Would you guys be up to it if I was to claim the board here again, but give it to the owner of the other /r9k/bunker? He seems more professional and looks like he gives more of a shit of everything. Or would that bring a userbase that you don't want anymore?
>>13242 I (balkan/r9k/ BO) already put in a claim for /r9k/ that was declined. But the account(robot) is there so it'd be unnecessary to do a weird double transfer. If you want to shill for /r9k/ to be brought back or ask about it you should probably post here >>3
>>13243 Will try to contact via email, maybe since I was the first /r9k/ BO admin may help a bit.

Webring: use Posts Per Day instead of PPH Anonymous 05/08/2020 (Fri) 13:57:03 No.13208 [Reply] [Last]
Hi, this thread has 2 points: 1) I think the current lack of activity in the webring makes Posts Per Day or Posts Per Week a far more useful metric than Posts Per Hour (in which most boards have 0 even if alive). Do most of you agree? 2) Is there a better place to request this change? Where is it?
Seems like a decent idea
The webring as a whole should have separate counters for "current" PPH and "average" PPH. The latter is probably more useful overall so I agree with this suggestion.
>>13208 I absolutely agree, but it might be better to ask in smug's webring thread on /support/ or on julay's /meta/ board, as the people running those sites were the ones who actually wrote the webring software.
>>13208 Concurring with this

[TUTO] LynxChan 2.4.0 installation on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS + server configuration with nginx + let's encrypt + cloudflare + installing a third party front end + adding addons + setting a vanity onion address. Some tutorial to set your own server + demo website. https://bchan.net/b/res/1.html#1
>>13179 Thanks lad, looks detailed.

Will there be another radio? Anonymous 05/03/2020 (Sun) 16:26:30 No.13131 [Reply] [Last]
I really enjoyed this radio session with you anons.
>>13131 Hopefully.
For the time being, not until maybe July when Julay "closes" (with the Admin's permission). There's a few reasons for this, but the big two are that I think it fell short of its second objective in favor of its first objective, and that these things are a pain in the butt. You have to plan a stream, looking at minimum 5-6 hours if you aren't cheesing it. Then there's contacting the other boards which you'll have to sink about two or three hours into. Then when running it you have to be constantly vigilant and following the thread while simultaneously keeping up with /r/s and whatever is being discussed. Each board is going to have a different attitude so you've got to balance music and consider if certain types of music won't fit your audience. There's also lots of impatient people who get mad at you for not having the block they want at the time they want it, and you'll inevitably forget someone on accident or delete their /r/ while trying to not go until six in the morning (do not go until six in the morning). There's also the simple fact that /animu/ does a jazz stream on Friday nights, /a/ does a r/a/dio stream most Saturdays, and they also do a lounge on Sundays, so while not really "competing" it might come across that way (this week just happened to fall under a "rest week" for r/a/dio). All that being said, if anyone on anon.cafe would like to start a consistent radio (doubly so if they're a Euro and want to stream during Euro timezones since I don't think any member of the webring with a music stream server does that as of this time), and they have the Admin's permission, I'd be glad to show you the ropes using Mixxx. Just hit me up on /a/'s IRC channel or shoot an email to notcia@national.shitposting.agency (warning: cockmail has been up and down for the last month). I'd keep it to just anon.cafe boards and maybe occasionally inviting a handful of boards though- a webring-wide event is just too much. Just keep in mind if your time you host it isn't good for the boards you're hosting for, you might only get like 5-10 listeners. Whenever I did a stream for Euro timezones we averaged 7 listeners versus the 30+ that attend American-time r/a/dio.
>>13146 >it fell short of its second objective in favor of its first objective Do we really need a radio stream for that though? Maybe we could have one central board/thread somewhere where webring issues in general can be discussed, and perhaps make that a permanent thing. That would fit the purpose better I think.
>>13147 The idea is usually that it's easier to get people to actually conglomerate and mingle when there's some sort of event used as an excuse to get them to conglomerate and mingle. Normally you'd be hard pressed to get, for instance, Kamisama and Nepfag into the same room without there being an event excuse behind it.
>>13146 > fell short of its second objective in favor of its first objective I don't think it did. I can see some of the information given and questions answered during the stream now forming the part of the foundation of some guides being written and passed around. I liked that we did a bit of serious business and then just lost ourselves to the party atmosphere. >these things are a pain in the butt I was impressed at how well it flowed. I'm surprised it only took 5-6 hours to plan the stream, but you're experienced. A lot of people underestimate the craft involved in being a good streamer.

Considering Fatchan's jschan Anonymous 05/02/2020 (Sat) 09:14:24 No.10737 [Reply] [Last]
LynxChan had its advantages, but during the short time that Fatchan was up I saw some things I really liked. It also seems to have garnered good reviews from those anons who posted on it. The questions I'm now asking are: >Is jschan suitable for use yet? jschan's repository README contains a warning that it isn't production-ready. Development is likely to be wilder, upgrades rockier, and behavioral edges less well-understood. I recall that Fatchan also had its share of attacks and the countermeasures seemed to strike a nice balance between being effective and preserving anon quality of life. >How expensive is jschan to run? By "expensive" I mean how CPU intensive, how memory-intensive, and how disk-intensive is it compared to LynxChan? Only someone with experience running both would be able to comment, but we can hope such a person exists. >What options exist to migrate content from LynxChan to jschan? A supported migration path is essential; direct database-to-database transfer would be ideal. Has anyone else migrated content from a LynxChan instance to a jschan instance and if so, how did it go? >Will jschan continue to be developed and for how long? Tom has said that he plans to keep actively developing jschan but given his recent force-feeding of blackpills I'd like to know his thoughts on how long he'll be committing to the software as its maintainer. Open-source projects can in theory be taken over if the original maintainer abandons them but this transition only sometimes goes well. I also see no pull requests having been made on jschan so I don't know how Tom runs his ship compared to, say, Stephen Lynx. >What do our board owners think of switching to jschan? Our board owners love their custom CSS; switching over to jschan is likely to mean they need to adjust their CSS yet again in a more radical way than a normal LynxChan upgrade.

>What do our board owners think of switching to jschan? I loved using JSchan and would love the switch if it occurred. Whether or not it is actually a good idea for this site, I cannot say.

Thread 3- Final Thread; Potato Edition Anonymous 05/03/2020 (Sun) 03:14:02 No.12334 [Reply] [Last]
I'll go ahead and make a third thread since I want the threads to be archival and viewable in their entirety, but I think all webring discussion has stopped at this point so this will be the "last one" unless there's actually a reply limit. New thread for anons with potato computers! Mk2 Good evening, everyone! How's it going? Is everyone having a comfy Saturday so far? We'll be having a radio stream so feel free to drop on by and get comfy. We'll be starting with some meme magic, officially kick off the stream with Protomen Act 1, work our way into some dadrock and r/a/dio classics, throw in some Eurobeat (no taimroll since anons outside of /a/ & /animu/ won't get it and will get their buttmankos in a knot), go into depression block for a bit before ending the night on a lighter note. Feel free to drop on in throughout the day, ask for help, or just talk shit with fellow webring members. We'll be going (officially) for 10 hours, but knowing how these things go it will probably be closer to 12/13. For those unfamiliar with radio streams, you can request songs, but not in bulk and not block requests. The streamer reserves the right to deny a /r/equest. Just include an "/r/" with your /r/equest. I forget if anon.cafe allows mp3 uploads, so if not, pop it into mixtape.moe and send a link my way (or be forever butthurt when I get a jewtube rip in 128kbps because that's all my internet can handle while streaming). Stream can be found here: http://radio.anon.cafe:8000/stream.m3u In the event of total catastrophic meltdown of the servers, let's plan on making a thread on julay's /meta/ thread without asking, and I'll make a shitty 128kbps stream on caster.fm/post the details in the new OP (note that caster.fm does not hide your IP from the streamer, so never bareback an imageboard. I don't see your IP from icecast though). Make sure to thank anon.cafe's owner, he's really putting his neck out for us tonight and I'm very thankful for that. In any case, let's have a fun evening. Grab your dakimakura if you're a fellow weeb, brew some coffee or green tea, grab some booze, and settle in for some fun times if this is your first "R/a/dio" experience. I've been given temporary global vol status to remove CP or similar spam during the stream. I would rather not use it so I'd ask any bad actors to just enjoy the stream and let it rest for the evening. Radio is supposed to be a comfy place and I think you'll find comfort listening in as well. /r/s are currently on a "soft" stop due to volume and have been for about an hour now.

>>13112 >Tours >oh, I wonder where- >it's one festival in the USA and then nothing else for years I'm not disappointed, you're disappointed. Thanks for the link though, I might buy something from it later.
>>13125 Coronachan probably has something to do with his lack of recent dates, but if you scroll back it does seem like he sticks to the US. It'd probably be a nightmare to ship that glorious instrument over to Europe.

There will be a music stream being held at a currently undisclosed location Saturday from about 12PM to 10PM GMT-7 on a webring member's board. The topic during the stream will be on Julay's recent announcement and how to move forward, advice for people starting their own branch on the webring, etc. I will disclose the board it will be held on tomorrow around 6-7PM GMT-7 so as to prevent any preemptive attacks against said webring member.
