Requesting Boards Anonymous Board owner 09/01/2019 (Sun) 02:54:24 No.3
Self-service board creation is disabled. 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)? 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 may be deleted if resources need to be freed. We don't grant boards to anyone who asks. 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 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.

>>13932 >-ever since they were hosted anon.cafe has been having longer and more regular downtimes I'm not against /fascist/ but also not in favor, this fact that you mention can be correlated with most boards here as anon.cafe had 5 or 6 at most until Julay had the July crisis and many migrated, from one week to another the place had more than 10 and nowadays 33. >either the admin team is biased and does not care for the rules they set or they are compromised From my perspective i think it's a matter of time, like >>13920 said it started as a bunker, then they did actually get a proper page (with /monarchy/), which i frankly don't recall the exact name, but the admin got vanished in a matter of a couple o' weeks and the site taken down in very questionable fashion. He either scrapped their data or was taken by them, who knows but i think it was an european nod so probably the latter, anyways after that small stint the BO there decided to move into 8moe but was warned about their admins so he decided to stay here "for a while more". Their status is bunker but in de facto it's actually their main board, having lurked there in the beginning i can say they never planned to stay and did respect the nature of the site... or at least their BO, which i think is competent. The users, especially the newer ones, are another story.
>>13932 >>13933 >>13934 >>13935 /fascist/'s Board Owner has already been advised that if /fascist/'s presence causes Anon.cafe's existence to be threatened, /fascist/ will be deleted without warning or recourse. The rest remains a matter for /fascist/.
>>13915 Done. >>>/x/ has been created, set SFW, and user "_bot" has ownership. >>13896 This seems like it might fit our mandate but it also seems like it may end up dead. >>13912 You may request ownership transfer of a board whose owner is inactive. Many owners are active without necessarily being logged in so we attempt to contact the board owner first by email (if they list one with their user account) and posting on the board, then if they don't respond after a reasonable delay, we transfer ownership.
>>13933 >Because you want so? Maybe there should not be free speech at all? Fuck off. Just because I pointed out that imageboards aren't inherently pro-free speech does not mean I am against it. >Shut your trap, next time it will be because you are not advocating censorship good enough. Objectively speaking /fascist/ is the most likely cause for anon.cafe to be taken down. Anybody with the means and intent to take down anon.cafe is hardly going to because of /otter/, are they? >You belong on facebook. If you want your free speech space then take it off the clearnet. That's not an insult, it's a statement of fact. >>13934 I wasn't 'enhancing' any of my points asides from making it clear I'm not some anti-/pol/ goon. >>13937 Thanks for clarifying
>>13932 >it's the daily gayops post
>>13939 >implying an anti-/pol/ goon couldn't be anti-/r9k/ too The only thing it made clear is that you're a fag. You use concern trolling to try destroying any boards you dislike.

This is a bannable offense? I take back what I said about wanting /x/. The BO is a nigger who would find himself better company on a forum.
>>13945 >BO doesn’t want their board littered with sexualized prepubescent cartoons. Yea fuck him right? In what situation would you post stuff like that on a paranormal board? Aren’t there plenty on boards on the webring for that type of stuff? Seems like the BO wants a straight up SFW /x/ board. What’s wrong with that?

>>13946 Don't you have your own website to moderate, Hanging_Flesh? I will not endorse any shifting of the overton window and that is not a sexualized image. Being able to post reaction images is a natural right of all imageboards, and BO's response is paramount to saying he will not allow free expression and exchange of ideas. At that point he would be better served hosting a forum. Protection of (SFW) loli is the first requirement to having decent moderation. Refusal to allow reaction images of lolis (such as this one which is also a bannable offense on /x/) is equivalent to moderating banning things they don't like instead of things that violate the rules. You can already see his moderating style anyways by the fact that he allegedly deleted another anon's posts for not criticizing Corona enough. Shit board that should stay dead, and I should have never endorsed it.
>>13945 Kek you were banned for that?

>>13948 I was given a stern warning for asking whether he meant all loli or just sexually explicit loli. He also deleted the images, and I was told I would be permabanned if I ever posted something like that again, yes. These were the other images that I was threatened a ban over.

>>13932 >/fascist/ isn't relaxed though its a prerequisite for boards to be relaxed here It's as relaxed as a politics board can be tbh. I admit that I don't regularly visit it tho, but the last time I checked, the majority of threads on /fascist/ were related to philosophy or religion. >ever since they were hosted anon.cafe has been having longer and more regular downtimes If there are problems with LynxChan software or the host, I doubt it's because of /fascist/ since if /fascist/ was a problem to the hosting company, they would just ask AnonCafe owner to delete it (and the owner has made it clear that if it happens, /fascist/ would have to find a new home) So don't worry. >>13939 > I pointed out that imageboards aren't inherently pro-free speech does not mean I am against it. IIRC, the owner of AnonCafe said once that he is not a fascist but the board was allowed here because of free speech and because /fascist/ didn't have a bunker. Also >>13937 >Anybody with the means and intent to take down anon.cafe is hardly going to because of /otter/, are they? If someone want to take an imageboard down, he can just spam CP while mods are sleeping and contact the hosting company >>13952 What are you talking about? /x/ isn't /fascist/ related board (and never has been)
I'd like to point out that the loli porn spam (that I don't approve of because it jeopardizes the entire website) chronologically started well after >>13945 was posted since it looks like /x/ BO is trying to claim that I started spamming his board. I have done no such thing and only just checked because I noticed their PPH had shot up while checking something unrelated on the webring widget and will not give his board unique IPs. I have no doubts that some autist from /cow/ came through and saw an easy target when they checked /meta/ which had been bumped by that conversation, but I have too much honor to debase myself like that when I say I'm not going to post on a board that already showed its true colors before even reaching 50 posts. Go find a different boogeyman, asshole. You banned fully clothed images of loli and some autist latched onto that fact and trolled you by spamming loli porn, but my hands are clean and now you're just trying to use me as a scapegoat which is disgusting. >>13955 >It's as relaxed as a politics board can be tbh. Their BO deletes entire thread arguments while threatening to kill people whenever a Christian starts to win an argument. That's not what I'd call relaxed.
>>13956 >I'm not going to post on a board that already showed its true colors before even reaching 50 posts. Perfect! Looks like moderation worked.
>>13956 >whenever a Christian starts to win an argument Lol
>>13945 >>13947 >>13949 >>13956 >BO wants board to be sfw with no sexual content involving minors or likenesses of. >He says in his first post you will be banned for it >You test the BO posting loli exposing underwear >You get banned for it What am I missing here?
>>13956 Its not FashBO threatening to kill "people", subhumans aren't people, nor are christians winning arguments Christians have only ever lost arguments on that board, as even a cursory glance at the board shows.

>christcucks get eternally BTFO over and over again even in their own thread they were given to post their garbage >cry endlessly on /meta/ All is right within the world.
>>13951 Seems like some posts just vanished as the logs don't show the BO or globals deleting them. Site glitch or what's going on?
>>13939 >Fuck off. Just because I pointed out that imageboards aren't inherently pro-free speech does not mean I am against it. Yes they are pro-free speech until the likes of you start spreading pro-censorship propaganda under various guises. >Objectively speaking /fascist/ is the most likely cause for anon.cafe to be taken down. Anybody with the means and intent to take down anon.cafe is hardly going to because of /otter/, are they? That's you putting yourself in the shoes of somebody with the means and intent to take down anon.cafe. And wait they're discussing wrong things on /k/. It's a threat too. Go shill for /k/ removal. >If you want your free speech space then take it off the clearnet. That's not an insult, it's a statement of fact. Oh boy, youre saying someone should GTFO and it's a fact. Just eat shit and kys. That's a statement of fact.
>>13939 >Anybody with the means and intent to take down anon.cafe is hardly going to because of /otter/, are they? Well hello there. I have the means and I think otters have no place on anon.cafe. Now please me or else.
>>14072 What boards do you think deserve to be here?
>>13966 Users can self delete. User deleted OP deletes entire thread. Nothing will be shown in log if that was the case

>found it odd that a site supposed to be relaxed and comfy accepted multiple overtly political and hyper sexualized boards <admin pulls the rug on incredibly established overtly political board for overtly political edgy speech While I don't personally care for /fascist/ and didn't think it should be made in the first place here, I think it's significantly more problematic that you accepted a board that pretty obviously clashed with the ethos of the site only to drop them for posts that were obviously going to be made given the topic of the board. I think it's fair to say you've been incredibly inconsistent with what is and isn't in line with the sites expectations and culture and that has done significant harm to a large communities ecosystem. Denying a board is always going to be more kind than accepting them only to reactively delete their board when they inevitably cause issues given the nature of the topic. I don't want to sound too dramatic because at the end of the day getting super invested in imageboards and meta drama is very unhealthy, but I'd hope you put more thought and consideration into these matters going forward. Even if I don't like a board I don't like to see people getting jerked around because of people that don't know what they want their sites to be.
>>14167 >Denying a board is always going to be more kind than accepting them only to reactively delete their board this if admin want's to only have a certain type of board, there are other sites that can serve as bunkers for ones that don't meet that criteria.
>>14162 no coons wanted here I spose.
Still accepting new boards? Looks like most of us at the old julay /retro/ board are fine with moving here. GOAT /retro/ 199X 1990's and 2000's Nostalgia SFW
>>14162 /pro/ is ready to go, SFW with user "rocket" having ownership. Sorry it took a while. If you don't want the board any more or don't log in within two weeks, we'll delete the board again as an orphan. >>14223 We'd be happy to have you. /retro/ now exists, SFW, owner is user "GOAT".
>>14224 Thanks! Would it be possible to migrate the old /retro/ threads here?
>>14234 Yes, but we'll have to delete and re-create /retro/ to ensure that all posts come through (since post numbers conflict). Since there's almost no content on /retro/ right now, I'll assume you won't mind it being wiped. Stand by.
>>14234 >>14235 User "GOAT" no longer has control of /retro/, and the board will be locked until thread and post restoration is complete.
>>14235 Is it possible to restore the files later? As you can see the board was in a really bad shape.
>>14237 Restoration's finished and user "GOAT" has ownership back. Board's unlocked; enjoy.
>>14238 Does this mean its possible to migrate an entire board's catalogue to here?
>>14238 So someone uploaded an archive with the missing files and posts. Is it too late now to restore these? https://anonfiles.com/Gf30i8neu1/retro_210327_7z

Hello there, i'm interested in /x/ and it's currently ghosted (heh) but i want to wait a bit longer to see if the BO returns. So Mr. Admin, can i get a date in which i can officially claim it? i don't intend to actually change much other than add a CSS back and maybe make it NSFW but perhaps the BO is planning something and just went on Easter vacations.
>>14240 The download keeps cutting off halfway through, but even if we could download it we probably wouldn't be able to use it - we prefer having a live board to scrape from. We only migrated /retro/ because it was relatively small and easy to do with existing tools. >>14254 We decline to host this board. >>14255 If an owner is inactive, you may claim it whenever you like by providing your username and intent to claim. We contact the current board owner using the email they provided on their account (if any) and post a claim notice on the board for a week. If there's no response in that time, we'll transfer the board's ownership.
>>14256 Very well, a week's notice sounds good. Username is Lensman, not much going on there so i intend to claim it to preserve it against odds if old BO went doesn't appear at all. Also thank you for your time.
>>14257 hey dude it's yours
>>14258 There you are, no i just wanted to coup you lol, i found odd how the CSS went away and you disappeared. I was planning some posts but sidetracked on something else but i still found strange no activity there for some weeks, then when i saw the ghost icon i poked here as a chance. If you want to kick spam you can be janitor, although i might be more lax regarding some other issues. What do you say?
>>14256 Admin, could you please answer this >>14239 ? I've been having to transfer threads post by post but if there's a way to transfer an entire catalogue in one go that would be a big help.
I've been thinking if an imageboard-building board would be useful to have around. I think a lot of BOs and anons would like to make an imageboard but there isn't much information or help available in creating and maintaining one. If such a board existed, it would be focussed on providing guides and info on building your own ib, hopefully with input from various admins who have successfully set up their own site. Would this be of interest to anyone? I don't want it to become another dead board cluttering up the site so I've held back from requesting it. As for the cafe admin(s), would this be of any value to the site and would you be willing to post advice on such a board?
>>14256 >>14257 >>14258 Thanks again, also admins if you decide the board should be NSFW due to some possible topics touched i can swing with it. >>14265 That sounds pretty great, if it can be made in a single thread (200-300 posts) i think you can even use /server/ without much trouble. Although getting into the technical gritty nitty along with user feedback might mean something more vast than that. rip slothchan
