Requesting Boards Anonymous Board owner 09/01/2019 (Sun) 02:54:24 No.3
------ ⬇ JULAY.WORLD REFUGEES READ THIS PLEASE ⬇ UPDATE 2020-04-28 1300 UTC: If your board was previously hosted on Julay.world, please keep in mind that Anon.cafe is much smaller and runs on even less than Julay.world's very slim resources. We also don't want to disrupt the feel of this site and we don't want to become bloated like Julay.world did. We will also not be able to accommodate your board if, in our judgement, it poses a threat to Anon.cafe's continued operation or existence. However, we'll be helping in another way by doing what we can to ease the process of new admins setting up their own imageboard instances and joining the webring. Watch this space. ------ 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. Priority will be given to smaller boards that have been displaced by the 8chan incident. Being comfy is also a plus! 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.

>>13199 The part where they don't get to say no.
>>13200 As I said Anon, try exercising that force in a jurisdiction that makes itself able to say no - even with the Tor bridge feature - and see how the force of running software holds up against the force of a rifle butt against your jaw. Onion routing is a powerful piece of tech and no mistake but there’s no need to dress it up in these fanciful clothes. It’s good enough without them.
What are anon.cafe's specs and how much of your server resources are being used right now? Sorry if it's a stupid question, I'm asking because I wanted to set up an IB, and I was wondering what I will need to run something about the size of this one.
>>13202 A single CPU and about 2GB of RAM will see you through for a small IB and reverse proxy.
>>13201 The point is that freedom is your own responsibility. No anon lives in a country where you can't achieve absolute freedom with the tools available. I don't even think fucking chinks have been able to fully counter peoples abilities to use VPN's to circumvent their niggerwall, considering how much shit leaked out of there during January and February. If your argument is that the government might make encryption illegal then fair enough, but at that point shit's so far gone that we both know what will be done.
>>13203 Oh cool, thanks.
Julay is down from today ?
>>13212 It's still going, it will be restarting as a different site with far fewer boards in 81 days.
>>13189 >there is a lot of stigma against going with tor or some other seedy darknet. >t. friendly local glowstick gaslighter Even Brave includes TOR in every browser.
>>13214 As much as glow niggers shilling against tor is retarded, Brave including it isn't really an argument in favour of it.
>>13215 Actually Brave is a great browser, and Brendan Eich is a literal fucking hero. Someone just need to take five minutes to set it up correctly. That's A. B, that poster's astroturfing attempt was basically ZOMG normalniggers will look down on your dastardliness for daring to use the ebil-nahdzee-TOR thingy!!1 No one uses that thing. Brave is most definitely a mainstream product and prominently supports TOR usage, so that argument is not only disingenuous, it's also pure horseshit. That was my point Anon.
>>13216 I agree with that idea then yes, I guess I misunderstood the context of the posts. Brave still isn't a great browser by any stretch of the imagination though. No socks5 proxy settings, no addons in the tor mode, default search engine is jewgle.
>>47 /k/ is moving on over from julay. How long does relisting take on the webring? I've already changed it to resume indexing
>>13235 It appears in our webring.json file immediately, but when it appears on other webring sites depends on their fetch and update intervals.

>>13188 We'll happily accept a bunker. Recently we thought Julay was down, but it just moved to a new url: https://spqrchan.xyz/sw/ That just proved to us that we have no means of knowing if or when the site will go down, so we'll happily accept a bunker here.
>>13218 Ehh, I'd rather use the systems proxy controls anyway, which is Brave's approach. Addons are an inherent weakness, safer not to have them in TOR. The default search engine can easily be set as desired, as with any other browser. Brave is basically de-googled Chromium, but with no-brainer TOR in place. Breddy gud combo, you ask me. It's a great browser.
>>3 0RCU5 /doomer/ Doomer Disappointed Idealists NSFW I plan on eventually getting an IB up of my own, but I'm retarded when it comes to webdev stuff.
>>13263 I'd like this as well, no longer fit in /r9k/ so /doomer/ seems like the best approach now
>>13263 >an entire board dedicated to the single most cancerous and gay normalfag cuckchan meme to date Yeah you bet this shit doesn't fit into /r9k/.
>>13265 In the name of the most cancerous people that have ever trod this earth, I draw the line in the dust and toss the fucks before the feet of the ungiven, and I say: Segregation now Segregation tomorrow And segregation forever.
>>13263 We decline to host this board. >>13246 That will be fine but I don't see an account name to give ownership to. Please create an account here and then confirm its name with your capcode on https://spqrchan.xyz/sw/ >>13180 Our server does not resolve OpenNIC domains at the moment, so we can't pull their webring.json files. >>13128 We have reached a decision and will not be hosting /delicious/. I want to make it very clear that this is not because of hosting or deplatforming concerns, nor because of the 2D loli porn. It is because we closely examined /delicious/ and the behavior of its posters over a number of weeks and have come to the conclusion that /delicious/ is not a good fit for Anon.cafe. The opinions of our existing board owners and posters above also confirm this. Over time it is likely that /delicious/ would come to be resented here and that the resentment would fester. We hope you do find a new home or are able to build one yourselves. If you end up spinning up a new webring host or joining the webring elsewhere then we'd be happy to link to you.
>>13267 Thank you for not letting more anticoze boards on here.

>>13285 >the only board about a fun hobby is "non-cozy" >not the board about literal fascism, the degenerate 3D porn board, or the one about fucking sand-niggers I don't even want to know how you define cozy, you're a fucking retard.

How would you feel about hosting a news style board? Just a thought since I know the news is far from comfy, but it would be nice to have a place to talk about current events on the webring since it seems like any board that would fit that mold has either been deleted like Julay's news board or is migrating off of the webring like /fascist/. I'm not even confident that I'd want to moderate one myself, but I think it's about time people start talking about the possibility of one and where it could be hosted. I don't want to have to go to fucking cakechan to post about happenings god dammit.
>>13339 >Just a thought since I know the news is far from comfy this. /n/, /news/, etc. always turn into an absolute shitshow of poz, spin, & debate negative. maybe >>>>/zchan/news/ would be a better choice than here?
>>13339 >>13340 Zchan admin has already said no to a /pol/ board, so I doubt he'd make an /n/ or /news/ board. Shitsux anyway, /n/ and /pol/ boards today are like /b/ was 10 years ago; past their prime, and fuckhueg magnets for cancer and retards with no self-awareness. If you really want your "happenings", go to 4/pol/ or 8kun/pnd/ to get your fix. If your reflex response to that is "no those boards are shitty", well you'd be right. They ARE shitty, and nobody in their right mind would want that shit on their own doorstep if they could help it.
Can something please be done to address the edgelord menace? /k/ is literally a thinly masked /pol/ and they've become the largest board on this site, theyre supposed to be a board about weapons but only talk about niggers and jews, and they can't even keep it to their own board either.
>>13348 This is what happens when you let Julay's /k/ onto Anon Cafe. They were the worst board on Julay and some called them "nu/k/" for a reason.
>>13348 >>13349 Why are they even here? Julay said they were gonna keep em. Can't they just go back there?
>>13348 It's pretty weird for you to complain about a "thinly veiled /pol/" on a site that hosts /fascist/. I don't necessarily disagree with notion of keeping the boards topics "comfy", but it seems like anons here have completely arbitrary definitions of what that means and when they decide they want to apply it to a board. Anon.cafe obviously hosts multiple boards that are the antithesis of traditional comfy boards listed here >>13284 I don't want to assume the admin's stance, but he either makes exceptions for boards he has an interest in or he just doesn't put much weight into mandating that a boards culture remain "comfy". Or he's just taken on boards mistakenly out of a sense of obligation to be a bunker site, which would be a stupid move. Plus a lot of the anons that meta post complaining about boards not being comfy seem to be lainchan tier trannies that think hating niggers and kikes is somehow edgy. >>13350 After a Julay gvol willfully left CP up on a board to spite the BO I think it would be best to avoid the place. That kind of shit surpasses even cakekikes incompetence.
>>13351 >everyone who disagrees with me is a tranny Unlike /pol/, /fascist/ actually has some high quality discussions.
>>13348 >>13349 >>13350 Out of interest, what are you requesting that we do?
>>13352 So your point of contention is post quality and not comfyness? That seems like a weird reason for banishing an entire board. >everyone who disagrees with me is a tranny Except I specifically said people who think hating niggers and kikes and who want a lainchain like hugbox imageboard are trannies. I laid out the exact characteristic being criticized and didn't use it as a broad insult at anyone who disagrees with me.
>>13353 I think unlisting it from the overboard would be a reasonable measure.
>>13355 Board owners may use their board settings to delist themselves from the frontpage + overboard while remaining on the board list and top boards, or delist themselves entirely from the frontpage+overboard+boardlist+top boards. If you'd like to suggest that /k/'s owner do this then the right place to ask for it would be on /k/; we decline to intervene here.

Hello I'm requesting a board here for 8ch's long running dominions general group. we've been together for the last 5 years, and have slowly grown; we had originally setup a server on discord because it ended up being more convenient to organize games there, especially when mark kept pruning our threads, we're not very keen on setting up a general thread on either of the various /v/s given the nature of this game. We have tried in the past to have regular threads, but again we were always caught in the autism of the janitors at the time which killed any enthusiasm. If you would be willing to oblige us we'd greatly appreciate it as our presence on discord has gotten long in the tooth, not to mention they're starting to purge servers now for wrongthink.

pardon me for forgetting this part >Username: pantokrator90 >URI: /domg/ >Name: Dominions general >Topic: Dominions and other Illwinter games
>>13390 You would be better off with a thread than a board. A board for a small general is how things get cluttered and dead boards every where.
>>13390 clabchan on the webring appears to have open board creation. idk who or what anything about it but looks cool
>>13414 idk this might actually be that dolphin poster's site and if it happens to be that's no good but I have no evidence other than it appearing to wordfilter "dolphin" to a pic of a dolphin. Still I don't want to deride it without more to go on.
>>13415 nevermind it is running belugachan that's definitely the dolphin poster don't use that site for your board
>>13390 Where can I find your discuck?
