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.

>>13651 What does that change about fascism inherently being Italian?
>>13652 Don't worry about it my guy. Good luck with your board
>>13652 Fascism is not inherently Italian. It had Italian origins but that's a historical fact at most.
Hello I'm the current owner of /christian/, I had taken the board off of the previous owner but neither he nor me can moderate the board anymore. I'd like to relinquish its ownership as of today.
>>13682 /islam/ BO here, I'll be happy to take your board.
>>13683 Based. Be sure to cleanse it of shirk.
>>13684 By God's permission I'll be fair to them, as much as I can be.
>>13683 I've already been sent the board by the previous guy, but send me a mail all the same. I'm going to keep a list of people that may be interested in keeping it.
>>13703 why tho
I'd like to claim /islam/ since it's been marked inactive for a while and the spam has been getting pretty bad. Username: mustafa.
>>13709 Since the previous owner has been AWOL for some time and has left no way to contact them on their user account, the claim transfer has been done. User "mustafa" now has control of /islam/.
>>13714 Hey BO would you consider hosting /kemono/ here?
>>13715 >would you consider hosting /kemono/ here? I recall that /kemono/ on 8ch was quite civilized, so we'd probably accept a request if one was made.
>>13716 Thanks BO I've let them know
>>13714 Thank you.
>>13716 >Name Pioneer >URL /kemono/ >Board name Kemono >Board topic Kemono >SFW? No The situation on PLW/animu/ has resolved itself (literally a single volunteer was all it took), but in the event that things fall apart again I would like there to be an unlisted /kemono/ board here. I don't plan to use it much, if at all, but I've seen too many niche communities be torn apart due to lacking a visible bunker or fallback position. If things do go wrong and PLW is no longer an option, then obviously you'd need to relist the board. Hopefully that won't happen.
>>13721 Done. /kemono/ has been created and user "Pioneer" has ownership. We've marked it NSFW so images posted there won't appear on the front page or SFW Overboard. >If things do go wrong and PLW is no longer an option, then obviously you'd need to relist the board. You're able to determine whether your board is listed or not; simply uncheck the "Don't index on top boards, board list, frontpage images and overboard." setting in the board management settings and then click the Save button. That'll make it appear in the board list and the list we propagate to the rest of the webring. We in administration can't change any of your board settings (except to lock or set N/SFW status) unless we seize it from you. You can appoint volunteers from your board settings if you'd like someone else to have access to the board settings in your absence. To defend against sliding attacks that push threads off the edge of the board while nobody's looking, we strongly recommend you set a value for the "Hourly thread limit (locks thread creation temporarily if exceeded)" setting, the "Enable captcha if this many threads are created within one hour" setting, and the Early 404 setting.

>>13722 Thanks.
>>13722 Hey admin is there any other way to reach you? Cockmail is unusable right now.

/k/ BO said I should request my own board from the site Admin if I disagree with his philosophy. Since there is now a clear rift and the users of /k/ would like an alternative away from both the nigger spammer and the current staff of said board, I would like to request my own anon.cafe board as a competitor as per his instructions. >Username Kubeman >Board URL /k2/ >Board name Weapons, News, Combat >Board topic Weapons, News, Combat >SFW? While gore and other NSFW content will be required to be spoilered, it will still be present more than likely given the subject matter, so no. >Please review the Global Rules before you request a board. I've read through them. I'll ensure that no one's posting CP/"Realistic" CG, stalking videos, or doing any doxxing since the intent is to have an actual Gentlemen's /k/lub. >Are you the nigger spammer and/or the anon causing him problems and/or the /fascist/ anon stirring shit? I am an independent and neutral third party who has masked my IP for the sake of anonymity. I would like to see an end to the fighting and I believe this will be the most effective way of doing so. I believe keeping the /k/ name is important so I would like to keep it as /k2/ despite a slightly broader subject range. The board is meant to function effectively as a proper /k/ board free of the moderation issues that plagued both 8chan under the Greek moderator, and the current /k/ that migrated here from Julay and brought their drama with them. Based on the /k/ board's reaction and the /fascist/ board's reaction, there is a clear desire for an alternate board under a quieter, laxer, but still firm management.
>>13744 I should clarify that I am NOT the anon he responded to, but rather I was under the impression that his comment was a general call to action.
>>13744 transfered board ownership of /k/ to user "Kubeman" make sure to always ban people who disagree with token schizos on the board and never delete 300+ posts of spam or you'll be censoring the people
>>13744 >>13745 >>13746 Board request for /k2/ is declined. We see you've already worked this out among yourselves, however, so we'll consider the matter closed.
This is a stupid question, but how do I get the red ## Board Owner ## text to appear next to my name when I make a post on my board? Back on old 8chan I would just put that in the name field, but that doesn't seem to work here.
>>13756 When you’re logged in put #rs in the namefield.
>>13757 Thanks.
>>13756 The better/proper way to do it is >>13757 There's also a setting, but that will put it in your name every time.
/k/ BO here. I would like to request a text-only unlisted secondary board to handle meta since the Tengufag has been abusing the meta thread. Name doesn't matter, you can name it /glow/ if you want. I have a few plans to handle the issue if not, but this is the path of least resistance so I would like to pursue it first if possible. Appologies for the trouble.
>>13760 Seethe
Does the server admin know why the /k/ board went down??
>>13762 Five days ago /k/ got a new BO. This is what the BO did next: >deletes pro-white posts >calls anyone who disagrees with him an "outsider" >tries to stir up a non-existent conflict between /fascist/ and /k/ >"I work for a 3 letter agency" >admits to phoneposting >nukes the entire board >now attacks the entire site Now we are here. The BO is gone. /k/ is nuked, but admin says there are backups.
>>13762 >>13764 We have nothing that suggests that the /k/ BO who deleted /k/ was responsible for the /shelter/ spam or the denial of service. But yes, /k/ was deleted at about 0100 UTC+0 by its owner. The /shelter/ thread is at >>>/shelter/2787
>>13765 Ok, since the other two BO's are retarded, lets try this a third damn time because not having mongoloid tier intelligence seems to be an issue here. I humbly request the /k/ board Username: zergfacecultist
>>13765 Hell, i'd like to throw my hat into the ring for ownership too. Username: GunHumper

Did something happen to inactive accounts? I can't delete spam from /make/ because I can't seem to log in. Maybe I just forgot my password, but I wouldn't think so. I'm getting error 500 instead of something actually useful like "password incorrect".
I was wondering whether or not it would be possible to host a board for EXTREMELY WHOLESOME appreciation of little girls on this site. It would mainly contain general discussion about everything from food to video games to tech to news but accompanied by pictures of cute girls aged ~8-15, usually taken from Instagram. I'd bring with me a small team of moderators to avoid any "problematic" posts and keep the board monitored as close to 24/7 as possible. Hoping to hear back from admin soon :)
>>13852 This will never be allowed, but it is a based idea.
>>13852 We decline to host such a board.
Hello there, i was wondering if i could request a board for posting and discussion of music and stuff related to it like instruments, software and artists. I am aware there's one on the webring but for some reason i've noted a certain general aversion to it but not so much for its culture but due to where its located. Other than the italians i think AlogSpace is the de-facto exclusive club for /cow/, which isn't bad or wrong but some might ignore or downright forget it exists. My implementation would be similar to theirs but simply located outside, i have nothing against them nor their users/BO but i think this is a good place mainly due to being considered neutral ground among the webring, helps it's the site i use the most, but i am also aware this place is more focused on the visual arts rather than music, hence why i wanted to inquire about it first.

>>3 Hello there, I'm not entirely sure if such board I'll be suggesting actually exists on AnonCafe But I'd like to request a NSFW board that's based around the discussion of fetishes featuring anthropomorphic characters. This won't be limited to just only mammals, reptiles and avians. But it'll extend to insects, plants and objects. Human characters would be obviously disallowed since there's already boards that covers for that, although I've been thinking that fantasy human-like races can get the pass. With all of that in mind, the main point of the discussion would be all based around fetishes and kinks with extreme fetishes being allowed in to provide a place of discussion for them in AnonCafe where similar boards would not usually allow them. OC and draw related stuff would be heavily encouraged, as to provide a place for NSFW OC/art in AnonCafe too. The rules would be adjusted in a way that it would disallow kinkshaming and perpetual drama to prevent these autistic posters who want to scare anons out of the board. >The username you created Clockwork >Board URL /hornytoon/ or /anthrofetish/ >Board name Anthropomorphic Fetishes >Board topic Anthropomorphic characters, Non-Human, Fetishes >Would you like the board marked SFW (i.e. no explicit or other adult-only content)? No, this will be a NSFW board
>>13859 We decline to host this board and suggest you try elsewhere on the webring.
>>13855 >>13860 This also applies to me?
>>13860 No worries then, thanks for the confirmation
>The username you created bard >Board URL (e.g. /meta/) /sunflower/ >Board name Sunflower >Board topic Esotericism, spiritualism, occultism >Would you like the board marked SFW (i.e. no explicit or other adult-only content)? No. The board is currently hosted on 8kun, but as that site may permanently move to onion, I want to pre-emptively create a board here in case that happens.
>>13882 >The board is currently hosted on 8kun The original board has been taken offline along with its host. Will this board be allowed here or not? Still waiting for response. Thanks.
>>13882 >>13884 We decline to host this board.
>>13888 Not to sound rude or desperate but i was wondering about the ruling in the case here: >>13855 Thank you.
>>13855 >>13890 Apologies, this didn't look like a request so we missed it. As you point out, there's already https://alogs.theguntretort.com/mu/ and some other music boards already on the webring. We usually don't duplicate existing boards unless they're to be used as bunkers.
>>13891 There's also /musicprod/ as a microboard under /server/ if you're interested in going there: >>>/server/42
>>13891 >>13892 Understood, thank you.
