Please remove 8chan.moe from your webring following list. Blacklist optional. Anonymous 05/12/2021 (Wed) 05:13:35 No.14384
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.
>>14759 Welcome to image boards you fucking newfag. They have been this way for over a decade now and not getting any better. Image boards are now downstream from social media, discord and reddit. Instead of getting all the interesting, useful people they get swept away long before reaching cuckchan let alone the webring. All that comes to the webring are people with ideological reasons not to use those other places, people banned from those places or people looking to shitpost/subvert (same difference). You can larp as muh logical autistic super man (which you're not) and it won't make a damn bit off difference. If you need an example look at even niche boards like /tg/. The webring one is dead and barely talks about even popular /tg/ topics, the cuckchan one is mostly porn addicts and marketers hyping new products. Which leaves reddit and facebook groups for where people invested in the hobby are meeting and sharing new content. Image boards were cool with a generation now moving on in life. The new cool stuff is on Discord or Snapchat. It's no longer a question of why WOULDN'T you go on 4chan, it's why WOULD you. And that is the problem. We're the last guys at the party and none of us want to admit it's over.
>>14760 ...Snapchat?
>>14761 Todays MSN/Skype for phone users. Lets you send porn and makes it difficult to save images so they can't spread it around (lots of ways around this)
>>14762 I know what it is. I was skeptical that it's where cool stuff is found. The most important aspect of it is that it's a porn site, but onlyfans is trendier. And as a social media site, tiktok is trendier.
>metadrama.cafe The absolute state of webring boards.
>>14760 >The new cool stuff is on Discord or Snapchat lmfao In the rare event that this post isn't just a troll >They have been this way for over a decade now this is almost entirely incorrect, even on the webring you can notice boards that are much better quality than others. >>14764 If you bothered to read the thread, this has been one of the most interesting webring meta threads I've ever been a part of, and I enjoyed posting.
>>14765 >this has been one of the most interesting webring meta threads I've ever been a part of >and I enjoyed posting That doesn't surprise me at all, enjoy talking about tiring meta and gossip about other imageboards all day because that's all what webring trannies are about.
>>14765 You sound like the type of dregs which drip down to the webring and think it's fun to spam celebrity women. You're a drama tranny and that offers nothing to people who have hobbies and interests outside of anime, drama and dilation. >>14766 Any time you see a board blow up on the webring it is always drama related. Never a new influx of users making interesting topics. /truth/ on tvch is about the best the webring has any more.
>>14760 >They have been this way for over a decade now Hence why alternative imageboards do get some semblance of lifeline sometimes, some people stop being like that in some situations although they might revert back after a while. >Welcome to image boards you fucking newfag >The new cool stuff is on Discord or Snapchat I wonder who's behind this post, still some of the observations are correct, at this point we are a niche in the by-now niche 4cham who only gets visitors in the form of "edgy but not really" people and still only minority of those post at all as most of them are lurking herds that enter once in a while for a short period of time to either check news/trends or fap. They use it as a visual aggregator rather than a interactive forum, those herds are the kind to only refresh the first page and gauge what "the people" think about some current event or thing; most of us here use the system to post our thoughts and/or contribute with our personal tastes/finds along with (very) usually checking the catalog when finding a new board. It's really not so much about finding new users, it's about finding new posters and the constant type of one which, if we were to believe that infamous thread about some 4c mods, there's actually few as most are bots or paid shills. >>14766 Why are you sticking your ugly nose here anyways? you like the smell, don't lie
>this is the most popular thread on the most popular board of anon.cafe >man, why are there so few new users who contribute decent content coming here?
>>14773 >this is the most recent thread on the board that became the most popular because of it >man, how much more of a cocksucking nigger post can i do to keep screwing with the anons there? 8moe is kicked and will be kicked indefinitely, suck on it kike
>>14774 >>this is the most recent thread on the board that became the most popular because of it The fact that you think this is a good explanation for the absolute state of this site is quite saddening.
>>14769 >if we were to believe that infamous thread about some 4c mods, there's actually few as most are bots or paid shills. Could somebody post a screencap or link to that thread please?
>>14766 >>14768 If either if you fucking retarded illiterate niggers bothered to read the god damn thread you would realize that it's not even a fucking drama thread and hasn't been a drama thread for the past hundreds of posts. At the beginning you could call it a "drama thread" because it was about 8moe getting kicked. Since then it has went on a wild ride of several different webring meta discussions, most of them having nothing to do with "drama." If you hate this thread so much why don't you fuck off you fucking nigger?
>>14776 Probably means this thread on Wizchan. https://www.wizchan.org/lounge/res/259999.html One of the posters claims to be an ex 4chan moderator and talks about how there's a few power users on each board making almost all the posts. >>14769 They never have a lifeline. They're short lived with sub 1,000 users most of which don't even post. And the posts you do get are like >>14778 . It's the dregs of the internet trying too hard to be different above all else. Many of them spending way too much time on Twitter if the majority of thread starters are anything to go by. >>14764 anon.cafe removed the 2nd most active and popular board on the webring. It became irrelevant since then.
>>14779 >/fascist/ was the 2nd most active and popular board on the webring keep dreaming

>>14779 >And the posts you do get are like >>14778 . It's the dregs of the internet trying too hard to be different above all else. If what you got from my post is that I'm "trying too hard to be different" then I don't think you even read my post or you're retarded. Idiots come into thread that they apparently don't like and start complaining that they don't like it while accusing it of being something that it's not because they didn't even bother to read. Even if this was a drama thread, who fucking cares?
>>14782 You called someone a nigger so therefore you must have no point. Get fucked, faggot, all of my opponents need to be civilized to the point of not even daring to criticize me while I'm allowed to call them the lowest scum in existence. It's only fair.
>>14782 >Posting weeb trash >Calling people niggers for pointing out a drama thread >Telling people to leave because they're triggered by the truth Dreggies gonna dreg.
>>14784 Predictable.
>>14784 >Anime is bad >I can't handle seeing the word nigger, calling someone a nigger when they attacked first is bad >It's the truth because I say so Niggers gonna nig.
>>14786 First points correct. Second points retarded. I don't care what a dreggy calls me because they're scumfuck faggots. It is the truth. Deal with it nerd. Drama thread is drama.
>>14787 >Doubling down on "it's the truth because I say so" because you didn't bother to read the thread >My opinions on anime mean anyone who posts anime is instantly wrong Congratulations, I haven't seen someone this retarded in months.
>>14780 I don't think it was the second but def in the top 5.
>>14787 >>14784 >>14779 Is Dreg the new buzzword/script code of the moment? it was apparent the thread was attracting outsider scum trying to bait but now it's obvious.

>>14752 >in fact I pretty much never have opinion arguments. The arguments I get into are fact-based, and when evidence starts getting dismissed with "kys cuckchan" that's where I have a problem because that basically tells me the community is proud of being ignorant. So much this. I left a couple of boards for this very reason. Every few days some anon would post something "bluepilled", and sometimes I would dive in and redpill him/her/it. Every time I would be insulted or ignored, just to see the same bluepill stuff come out the next day. After a while I wondered if I was talking to feds, bots or idiots. Just a waste of time.

>>14793 Is that pic from Invasion of the Body Snatchers?
>>14793 >complains about uncritical usage of buzzwords >describes his posts as redpills The underlying issue is that the culture of anonymous imageboards has shifted from discovery mentality (random anons with no affiliation messing around and with each other) to siege mentality (anons affiliated to various tribes constantly worrying about other anon tribes and their schemes). All different flavours of buzzwords are simply a way to make discussion unbearable to anyone outside a specific tribe.
Are webring babbies still angry about this or have you found a new thing to be mad about?
>>14864 You have to go back.
>>14865 Oh I will, don't worry. Just curious what makes you dumb losers rage these days.
>>14866 What's the matter? you can't lurk the few posts made since you left? You only need bad grammar to be called the nigger that you are
>>14867 The lack of new posts itt is why I'm wondering if there's a new thing to be upset about.
>>14865 >eagerly swallows the bait >tells others to go back Hmmmm
>>14863 >siege mentality (anons affiliated to various tribes constantly worrying about other anon tribes and their schemes) I don't have anything to add but just wanted to point out how perfect this description is.
>>14863 By redpill I mean some argument backed with facts, and that is not countered with anything. I don't mean that I know The Truth, but that I'm at a point in the discussion that is further. If the other anon has better arguments than mine, I'm all ears, but instead there is no actual discussion, so it's the other anon who doesn't have an open mind and behaves in the siege mentality that you describe. >>14796 Yes.
Why are all webring boards so fucking dead and lame? What do the people running these gain from it?
>>14914 What do you gain whining about it, you are as lame as the place
>>14915 What's the point of this question? Some anons would like a non-dead board with non-crappy users. Why are you triggered if they lament not finding it?
>>14916 >Why are you triggered if they lament not finding it? The post is not a lament when it finishes with "What do the people running these gain" because the answer is obvious if he's "lamenting" not finding a place, the answer is because they are waiting for them to be not-dead and not-crappy. The post is just some good old flaming used exclusively to demotivate because i can't see another motivation for it, it doesn't offer alternatives, it holds an already proven hard-to-get standard in magically having tons of users and with all of them being good posters, it questions the ones trying for just trying. See my point?
If you want a board with more activity, then you can start by posting more.
>>14917 >The post is not a lament To me it is, and it's not the only one in the thread. Now I'm not gonna play the impossible-to-solve debate game of personal semantics here, so keep your opinion. >>14918 >posting more Not a solution. Quality vs quantity, etc.
>>14914 >>14915 >>14916 >>14917 >>14918 >>14919 Hello. You might enjoy posting in one of the threads we already have on the subject. >>10445

>>14524 I don't know that anyone ever thought anything besides what I thought in 2014. That nigger wasn't doing anything with the site himself, so therefore it was great. It should have continued indefinitely tbh. It was a place of pure anonymity and freedom. If you were enough of a cunt, other anons would crack down on you (muh cp laws n' sheeit). I definitely would go even further than free speech though. I think offended niggers should be slowly tortured to death and forcefed whatever the fuck they don't like along with all moralfags in the bog--where they belong. <waaaah content I don't like Tough shit, newfags.
>>14737 >posting the cuck faggot version
>>14919 >personal semantics here Unless you were raised in a retard town on top of a sad mountain, words usually have similar meanings and definitions between the majority of people. Stop trying to cotton up posts, anons know how to use words.
>>14988 As the posts show, we have a different definition of 'lament'. Mine is the same as the first 2 dictionaries I just checked. For the other anon is not, and I don't care, we can agree to disagree. If you never noticed that most discussions end up in semantics (or they stop earlier), you must be new to the internet. Thanks for the insults, BTW.
>>14987 >posting the schizo version (You) aren't purging anyone out of an hobby. This goes double for anything that can be done by yourself or with small groups of friends, the community at large is powerless there.
