Requesting Boards Anonymous Board owner 09/01/2019 (Sun) 02:54:24 No.3
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.

Hi, Board Owner, I'm the /chirstmas/ owner and I'm going to stream some movies this saturday, I use this webpage: https://ghostscreen.neocities.org/canales/ghost.html I use an embedded thread as chat, could you please whitelist my webpage so I can put a /christmas/ thread there? Thanks in advance
>>16035 Sorry for the delay. The necessary changes are made and loading https://ghostscreen.neocities.org/canales/ghost.html shows that the page you've linked in the frame loads fine.

>>16054 Weird, I have this infinity captcha. I think this is a lynxchan problem, I had the same problem on 8moe; in other words it will be quite hard to work around it. I think I won't be able to use the page inside the iframe but still, thanks for the help.
By the way, this is a chrome only bug, on firefox it works just fine.
To the Anoncafe Administration, I'd like to put in a formal request that you restore the board /comfy/, and assign it to a new BO. It's quite unfair for a board's owner to abruptly terminate a board for no apparent reason--particularly with no advance notice. Now in the history of sites & boards this kind of thing isn't all that unheard-of, and the typical remedy has been to restore the board under new management, as I've requested. (Cf. >>16065)
>>16070 I'm going to sleep now so if during this time a decision is made, and no one willing to claim the board, maybe you can transfer ownership to me, Taulier (this is the name of my account, I already own a board here).
>>16079 Congrats, Taulier. You're the new BO of /comfy/ ! I'd recommend you make me a vol, and we can work together on rebuilding the board from scratch. I'm Chobitsu , the BO of /robowaifu/.
>>16079 >>16093 I'm on it. Please can /comfy/ be marked as strictly SFW ?
>>16094 >Please can /comfy/ be marked as strictly SFW ? Admin already did, check the board listing. >>16095 >We got some work to do now. I'm uploading the full /comfy/ archive I saved now. Shouldn't be much longer. It has all the JSONs & files as described (here & following >>16083, ...). Unfortunately, my last archive of /comfy/ was back on June 17th. But that's the vast bulk of the board's content (~2.5GB) over it's time here. Unfortunately this is going to be a rather tedious process trying to reestablish everything by-hand. I'd suggest starting with a few hand-picked threads only to begin with, and I'll be attempting to communicate with a competant Admin about devising a bot we can use to rebuild everything with all the rest in an (mostly) automated fashion.
>>16095 BTW, can you enable codeblocks please?
>>16096 SFW, nice. I'm affraid I can be of a big help regarding the process of rebuilding the board from an archive. I let you work on this and will try to do the best for helping. I'm currently working on the CSS, want to keep it as close to the old one but with little improvements (transparency in the OP ie). >>16097 done.
>>16098 Sounds great! So, I'd like to create a Operation: Rebuild /comfy/ !! thread with your permission. I'll make the archives I'm uploading easily-locatable by anyone on our board. For anyone who cares to, they can help us along with some hand-picked thread assignments. Sound good BO?
>>16099 Go for it.
/late/ has been down for quite some time without a update from the admins. We would like a bunker kindly! >Username: Otts >URI: /late/ >Name: Late Bunker >Topic: Lonely nights. Sleepy days. Welcome; You have a friend in late.
>>16119 I second this !

>>16119 Lateanon here, would really appreciate a bunker too. Please whoever ends up being a mod be considerate to our boards culture. I don't really want that anon in the comfy thread who was suggesting breaking /late/ up into like 7 different boards anywhere near the future mod team.
nvm we have a bunker on wirechan now
>>16119 >>16122 >>16128 >>16129 That request doesn't have the full information, but a brief look at the thread on /comfy/ shows that there's some activity around bringing up a new /late/ site and that the bunker on Wirechan seems to have been accepted. We have to be careful about how many bunkers we grant, because multiple bunkers activating and receiving many quick posts in the case of a webring disruption might suddenly overwhelm our storage. Is the Wirechan bunker sufficient for your needs?
We have Islam, we have Christianity, we have Christmas too. Wanna complete the set with Judaism? For a judaism board since no other accessible image board as one.
>>16133 Guy from the discord here, we are going to probably use anon.cafe as a bunker. wirechan doesnt seem to want us there, which is fine. different cultures. their house. etc.
>>16133 >>16119 yeah so it didn't really work out. The anons on Wirechan didn't really take us in and we felt like we were stepping on some toes being there. After all its not our house. So we spoke with the admin and decided it was for the best if we split. That's just how it goes sometimes. >Username: Otts >URL: /late/ >Name: Late Bunker >Topic: Lonely nights. Sleepy days. Welcome; You have a friend in late. >no, the board will be NSFW. >This is a bunker. The last board is gone. >Yes, there are anons ready to begin posting. There was a bunker on wirechan, but it didn't work out. The admin (koi) was great, however, the community didn't accept us. So we are here. >/late/ is no longer on the webring. This is a bunker for /late/ until we get back on our feet. I understand why you have to be cautious about giving out enw board and bunkers. /late/ is typically a slow board, so I don't believe there will be a massive upsurge in activity for your servers and I appreciate the check in.
>>16138 People on wirechan love to push people around to see what they're about, Its kinda what makes it great since you might get randomly dressed down for posting bs(And theyre kinda mean with it) making the posting quality higher than average, but its definitely not a /comfy/ style board i think thats where the culture shock came through (and /late/ people dont know how to handle it) but i dont think they care one way of another. They were just fucking around i think because that what they like to do, they love I MEAN LOVE to tell people to go back and lurk moar or what not. The vibe on the site its pro /late/ more than anything. They're very pro-niche communities.
>>16138 /late/ created. User "Otts" has control. If the bunker is inactive, please remember to check the setting in Board Management that hides it from the board list and webring.
>>16141 Thanks for the /late/frens admins.
So do we consider the judaism board?

Though that is more of a general discussion based board. /Robo/ is more individual project oriented and organized than burying projects under threads discussing all kinds of topics.

It'd be themed around being a social "cafe". >Despite the name, this board isn't meant to be like the real 4chan's /soc/. This wouldn't be a place for cams/hookups/"rate me"s, it'd be taking inspiration from the small but growing SFW parts of /soc/ (like the Ideal partner thread, or the SFW Discord friend maker) to let users across the webring meet and socialize over messenger. There w >I have a few people who are willing to post already, and I hope to attract users over the webring by being a board with a really unique premise. >My board isn't quite like anything else on the webring so far. I'd understand any concerns about privacy, but the privacy of users should be entirely in their own hands, and I don't think anon.cafe or myself would be responsible for people posting their Discord tags on a public imageboard.
Fuck off glownigger
>>16149 kill self torps

>>16149 Altough I'm not a lot into socialisation on internet, this can be a nice board. I think anon.cafe is a nice place to host it.
Summoning to the admins, I'm christmas-anon, former /christmas/ owner as I stated here >>>/christmas/2977 I lost my credentials and there's no way I can take them back, so It would be really cool if you gave the board to NeneSeal, the guy who owned the board before me or anyone else who's willing to host this year's christmas event.
>>16158 The NeneSeals user account self-deleted, so /christmas/'s board ownership will remain untransferred until and unless someone else steps up.
>>16159 I'll be fine with taking it back and withholding the board until this year's celebration (I'm the BO for /l/).
>>16160 Alright. Ownership of /christmas/ has been transferred to you.
>>16149 Although we appreciate the idea on its own merits, we don't think /soc/ is a good fit for Anon.cafe. >>16155 Board created, user "Forge" has ownership, and SFW flag set. Please remember that as with all new and speculative niche boards, we may decide to delete it if it demonstrates a persistent failure to thrive.
>>16161 Thank you very much.
Just so you know, /late/ has decided to turn our bunker into our main board.
>>16162 Hello, I didnt see anything for a few weeks after I requested and didnt see it was accepted until now. I can’t log into my Forge account so I had to make a new one. Forge_World. Please transfer ownership of /workbench/ to the new account so I can go about setting up the DIY hobby board.
>>16234 We're satisfied enough under the circumstances that you're the same person, so we've transferred /workbench/'s ownership to user Forge_World.

Tengunigger is inactive over on /k/. As previous BO I'm getting tired of the shit and would like to get back to posting so I'll apply for another temporary tenure to last through November/December. Username is "Reuenthal" as per last time recreated. Rules will be reverted to making a working international forum once more, rabble rousers will be banned on sight with impunity. If there are any objections get Tengu to log into his damn account and do his damn job.
Oh right, my rules will reflect my previous tenure. /k/ is a gentlemen's club and will be run as such. Rabble rousers need not post. Those who wish to post things not safe for life must warn their audiences. NSFW content will be spoilered. Hitlerites must have a valid reason for fapping to their führer in the presence of others. Suits are required. If a successor is not found the board will be abandoned at a preset time in November/December that will be announced at least one month in advance. If I go on vacation and the volunteers who were supposed to run the place can't ban fucking CP like last time, I will fire them all once again before handing them the board on a whim. Vote for Reuenthal 2023. Make anon.cafe great again.
>>16254 We've contacted /k/'s current owner as normal, inviting them to log in if they don't want the claim to proceed. If the owner account doesn't become active after a little while, we'll transfer ownership.
>>16262 Ideally he will log in. Thank you for the followup.
Is /loomis/'s board owner active? It's a dead bored but there are still a handful of people that use it for reference and historical purposes. Currently the catalog is littered with schizophrenic nonsense and I would like to clean it up. To that end I am making a formal request for ownership of /loomis/ if the current BO does not respond.
