Requesting Boards Anonymous Board owner 09/01/2019 (Sun) 02:54:24 No.3 [Reply] [Last]
Self-service board creation is disabled. Anon.cafe doesn't grant boards to anyone who asks, but perhaps we'd like to host your board. Broadly, we'll consider boards that aren't duplicated elsewhere on the webring but we weigh up a variety of factors. Being comfy is a plus! But, in the end it comes down to our private decision. Please review the Global Rules before you request a board. Please also be certain that you are willing to carry out the duties of a board owner. Boards whose owners do not log in for more than two weeks will be marked inactive and put up for claim. Boards that remain dead for an extended period and/or demonstrate a failure to thrive may be deleted. If you'd like to run a board on anon.cafe, please create an account and then post in this thread with: >The username you created >Board URL (e.g. /meta/) >Board name >Board topic >Would you like the board marked SFW (i.e. no explicit or other adult-only content, even behind spoilers)? >Is your board brand new, or a re-creation of a board from the past? >Do you have posters already eager to post on your new board, or are you hoping to attract them after it is created? If the latter, where do you expect to draw them from? >Does your board substantially duplicate or overlap with any other board on the webring? If so, what is so different about your board that you want to make another one? Please specify if you are requesting a board for use as a "bunker", which is a board that will remain inactive and only be used in case your main board hosted elsewhere becomes unavailable. We request that bunker boards remain delisted from the board list and top boards so that we do not pollute the webring with many inactive duplicates of boards. To delist your board, go to Board Management > Settings, check the "Don't index on top boards and board list" box, and click Save. Delisted boards can still be read and posted on, so you can still distribute your new bunker's address to your anons. If your main board becomes inaccessible or you want to turn your bunker into your main board, feel free to relist it by unchecking the aforementioned "Don't index on top boards and board list" box and clicking Save. Please note that because delisted boards can still be posted on, their owners are still expected to log in regularly and clear them of spam or rule-breaking content and that delisted boards whose owners do not log in for some time will still go up for claim as normal. If you keep your bunker clear of spam and rule-breaking content, it will remain unlocked so that posts can be made at any time. If spam or rule-breaking content accumulates, the board will be administratively locked and will only be unlocked by request. By the time we see an unlock request and act on it, your anons may already have been unable to use the bunker for some time. A tidy bunker is a ready bunker.

Just so you know, /late/ has decided to turn our bunker into our main board.

Looks like he managed it for about a third of the board before Strelok stepped in. Can you restore the missing threads Admin?

>>16222 >implying You already slid them off the page limit
>>16223 What is there to imply? You said even more threads. No threads have been slid off since the bumplocked threads. I would have saved those too but obviously they can't be saved. All that is happening right now is the insurance layer of empty pages from Yanny deleting legitimate threads is being filled in with threads. Stop being retarded.
In any case I have accomplished my mission and no further sliding will take place unless the lesson wasn't learned. In that case the beatings will continue as necessary.

On a related note Yanny the Janny just deleted a bunch of legitimate threads during his spam cleanup.

Copy/Pasting to /meta/ since I have a feeling this particular post will be deleted before Tengunigger sees it and I don't remember his email. >>>/k/51106 1) The delete by IP address option was used, which deletes all posts from all time from that IP address based on the level of hash. I happened to have made several (non-spam) threads on /k/ and used those IP addresses during my sliding, so that's on you for not knowing how your mod tools work. You can only see IP hash based on block bypass and to a certain limit, not how it ties back to other internals on the server. I said I could engage in "sleeper agent shit" if I wanted to for a reason. That's on you for using the delete by IP option. There's a reason most board owners ban the use of that button and it's because of shitcunts like me. 2) The previous BO created a buffer in the catalog as an anti-spam feature for a reason, and this board has been so bloody dead over the last 9 months (combined with at least one actual spam attack from a few months prior that Tengunigger partially dealt with at that time) that the buffer has been maintained during the interim. /k/ can handle 80 threads at any given time but follows the old /jp/ adage of keeping about the last 10 slots free of debris. 3) I meticulously counted my threads, both when posting troll loli threads and later when posting useable threads (not to be confused with my "sleeper threads"). The catalog was filled and a handful of bumplocked threads were deleted, then (You) bumped the problem thread in question, so I had to slide the current Russia-Ukraine bumplocked thread to the bottom of the catalog since someone decided to be a chucklefuck. I even warned that I would have to slide the current Russia Ukraine thread if that were to happen but nobody seemed to listen or bother archiving it at the time and said post is now deleted. At this point the loli threads were deleted dropping the catalog down to 7 pages, but the legitimate threads were left up. The part of my conversation with ChatGPT RanBot detailing why those "slide threads" were more legitimate than the thread I was sliding seems to have also been deleted further showing you used the delete by IP button like a retard. With the exception of I believe 7 bumplocked threads that were deleted, the only salvageable thread that ended up being deleted was the SHTF General for which I apologized at the time since I thought that Tengunigger had been a kusogaki and increased the thread limit to 9 or 10 pages, but you deleted that post as well. I even went to the courtesy of salvaging a few threads from the bottom of the catalog to make sure some other slidenigger didn't come in and delete perfectly good threads, as I had kept the catalog largely in order during my sliding to make sure that functional threads remained near the top 5 pages to be easily located once more, but by deleting by IP you reset the catalog into a jumbled, garbled mess that it currently is and I haven't bothered to fix it. In total: >With the exception of the bumplocked threads, the problem thread, and the SHTF General I deleted no additional threads >(You) used delete by IP like a stupid monkey >(You) deleted perfectly good threads in the process of "deleting spam" >(You) caused the catalog to look like the current shitstain that it is instead of being in functional order >Don't blame your incompetence on others Copy/pasting this to the meta thread for when you inevitably delete it in a fit of rage. I wanted to leave your post on the front page for embarrassment reasons for a few hours/days but Strelok probably doesn't know any better and you're gaslighting the userbase.

Deleting Boards Anonymous Board owner 05/02/2020 (Sat) 09:49:50 No.10741 [Reply] [Last]
This thread is for boards that are going to be deleted. All boards up for deletion will be given a minimum of seven days notification before it happens to allow them to be evacuated. It's not fun to cull boards, but it is necessary for the health of Anon.cafe and the health of the webring. There are no set criteria for deletion, but factors that make a board more likely to be deleted include long inactivity (if that board is not a bunker) with no signs of revival, a long-absent owner (if that board is not a bunker), very low post count/indications of stillbirth, and other factors that indicate the board has likely calcified and is unlikely to revive. Well-maintained, unindexed bunkers will not be deleted unless their community appears to have disappeared entirely. As of now - Saturday May 02, 2020 at 0935 - the following boards have been selected for deletion: >>>/girltalk/ >>>/lovelive/ >>>/mh/ >>>/psyid/ >>>/int/ >>>/nofap/ Boards at risk of being considered stillborn include: >>>/hentaiclub/ Boards that have had no activity but are presently exempt from being considered stillborn because of Julay.world's circumstances include: >>>/icup/

>>16183 Understood. Thanks, I'll give it my best.
>>16182 >>16184 sup. former aggy BO here. I see you're doing good work trying to revive the place. Please keep the spirit alive, I'll do what I can on my end, making game. It obviously keeps me busy but I'll never forget you guys. Just to let you know, I never received any email, but I think it might not have even been listed since I only received ownership of the board after being a janny and the previous guy was gone.
>>16206 Sup. Good to see you're still around. I saw your stuff on itch.io a while ago, got a few little games on there I don't remember seeing in the threads. You working on anything right now? Drop by the board sometime and say hi, I'm sure people would be glad to see you're not dead.

Please remove 8chan.moe from your webring following list. Blacklist optional. Anonymous 05/12/2021 (Wed) 05:13:35 No.14384 [Reply] [Last]
As it stands, anon.cafe is the only site in the webring that is following 8chan.moe. Other sites have blacklisted the site in history for numerous reasons. This site is currently the only site in the entire webring that is following 8chan.moe. I'm here to convince you why you should stop doing that. 8chan.moe has been extremely unpopular amongst anons across the entire webring for numerous reasons. It's getting to a point that it is impossible to ignore the complaints. Please hear me out entirely. First is the fact that after many months and several lies, they have absolutely no interest in conforming to webring standards. They are one of the only sites in the webring that has failed to conform to fair practice in the webring by failing to fully implement the webring plugin. Very few sites have failed to do this, and the other sites are for the most part rather small. 8chan.moe however, is the largest site in the webring currently with the most activity, and they have failed to implement the webring after several months of being asked to. They have no interest in joining the webring properly. If you don't believe me and need proof, please read this thread: https://8chan.moe/site/res/1880.html Several months ago you blacklisted 8chan.moe from your site because they failed to properly implement the webring. They still haven't committed to fully and properly implementing the webring. When people complain, they ignore it. They have never been interested in properly implementing the webring. All they care about is that people from the webring get advertised to visit 8chan.moe and they have never had the good faith to enable the webring GUI on their site. It has been several months and they have not fixed it. They won't even respond to it anymore. The second biggest complaint is that they harbor Mark. Mark is known for bringing the press and other undesirables to anything he inhabits. The fear is that this could eventually infect the rest of the webring. However, without proper integration to the rest of the webring, this is honestly unlikely, but it is still a complaint that is raised. The third and most recent complaint is that 8chan.moe has begun to allow content that is not legal in the United States and is very likely not legal elsewhere. The United States is usually considered the pinnacle of free speech and even their limitations, such as the DOST test, are echoed around the rest of the world. This is what caused 8chan to be delisted on the only other site they were listed in the webring. Pic related. The fourth and final reason is just plainly that you cannot trust the word of Acid. He has made so many numerous promises to correctly implement the webring and even at the beginning he started the webring with some "peering agreement" thing which backfired at him. He decided to reverse that decision as soon as he became bombarded with webring users who complained at him. However, due to a lack of complaints about his extremely bad-faith nature and his flat-out lies about his intentions, his site has been allowed to be included in a substantial part of the webring for months now. It's time to remove his site from the webring and stop trusting him. My hope is that you will remove him from your following list which will remove him from the webring. I hope nobody in the future is ever suckered into adding back 8chan.moe. Thank you for reading this post.

"Please censor, please censor, please censor!" > That's all I read.
>>15527 meanwhile craptcha block bypass bullshit is pissing me off.
> The United States is usually considered the pinnacle of free speech LMAO, imagine genuinely believing that when the US ranked a shared 13th place (the lowest place) in the top 30 countries with most freedom of speech. That's a joke honestly. I don't care about anything else mentioned tbh, I was looking for something else and stumbled across this, but when I read that I just couldn't stop laughing.
It's better than Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and other similar countries where anything the state considers "offensive" gets you fined or imprisoned. If you know somewhere better, feel free to share.

Community Announcements Anonymous Board owner 05/21/2020 (Thu) 16:31:32 No.13261 [Reply] [Last]
Sometimes boards do things and think that it would be nice for other boards to know about it. Every week - assuming there are events - we'll post upcoming events in the global announcement slot as smaller community announcements. If you'd like your event to be added to the rotation, post here with your: >Board >Event name >Event thread >Event date and time (please provide time in UTC at minimum plus whatever other timezones you'd like included) Board owners may suppress community announcements without also hiding all global announcements if they desire by using custom CSS to hide class "community-announcements-board-owners-feel-free-to-hide-this". I've taken the liberty of making /otter/'s Ottercine otter movie night the first event we announce. Good job, /otter/.
