Alright, this is meant to be a successor to /y2k/ on the old 8chan, however I have expanded it to include both the 1990's and the 2000's and NSFW content is allowed, provided it's actually related to the purpose of this board and doesn't violate any of the site's core rules.

>>1779 Does it have to be the exact same pic?
>>1781 Is this thread lying to me then? >>730
>>1795 >immediately just impugning others Lurk moar. That post was made by Robi back on the previous incarnation of /retro/ on Julay World, after it became nuJulay. Any files that didn't get moved over in the transition would re-appear if someone just posted them anywhere, b/c hashes==same. Pretty well spelled-out in the 'lying' thread you linked, friend.
>>1796 Just delete the thread if it's so woefully outdated and misleading, instead of relying on people having to read mountains of text to get some crossboard meta dramashit nobody has any interest in, ya nigger.
Why delete the Retro Ad thread instead of changing the name to "contain" the topic?
Did you or OP delete the 1990s thread?
>>1844 That thread was a shitfest. >>1846 Wasn't me. Either OP deleted it or he got a global ban.
>>1881 Aww and I was planning on saving a lot of those retro ads too.
>>1881 >That thread was a shitfest. It only had 3 or 4 posts, calm your guns you buffalo
Happy new year /retro/! I wish the board wasn't so dead
>>2155 Me too. I don't know how we can get more either.
>>1881 Can we do something about this captcha? It's pretty buggy, I don't know if this is up to the BO or someone else, but this block bypass stuff is getting pretty annoying. We have too little traffic as it is, lowering the inconvenience to posting will help.
>>2180 I can turn off the captcha for posts, but I don't think i can do anything with the block bypass.
>>2193 Okay, thanks for letting us know.
I like this board's style.
What's with all the missing files trashing every thread and the leftover empty posts?
>>2467 The answer is literally in this thread. Lurk moar
>>2468 This is such a messy way of handling it
>>2469 There was no other way.
>>2155 I feel you there
Hello anons. I made the CSS for this board back in the Julay days, but over time I have grown to dislike it. I think it's not authentic to how 1990s websites looked and mixes modern styles with retro ones... For one it's too colorful and the colors are desaturated, plus it heavily uses icons in the form of Unicode glyphs, which modern operating systems automatically convert to emojis. Also it scales horribly on mobile, something I didn't care about when I first designed it. Ironically now I'm away from home for most of the day due to work so I'm using my phone more, and I ended up just reverting to the Yotsuba CSS theme because this one is just so uncomfortable to use. But the thing I hate the most is that it doesn't work well on LynxChan, specifically the captcha whose field is half hidden and the buttons that lost their icons. Ideally I'd prefer if anon.cafe migrated to JSchan like other IBs on the webring, but if that's not possible then a new theme from scratch is due... This is, of course, a gargantuan task so I'd love to get the consensus of anons here beforehand. >do you like the current CSS theme? >what do you like/dislike about it? >if a new theme was made, how do you want it to look? >is the BO still active to make changes to the CSS? A new theme is not a sure thing but let me know what you think regardless. Merry Christmas.
Merry Christmas /retro/ !
>>2743 >but let me know what you think regardless I think you should do as you see fit Anon. I'm not a close-knit part of your community only having met you all back on Julay. However, it's apparent to me that you both think more about this probably than others, and understand /retro/'s particular issues here better than most. Hope that helped, Anon. Cheers :^)
>>2743 Usually i only browse at home as i see it anathema to do in public or away so not a lot of problems in my case. I do like it but i can see it being helped with some minor usability fixes, being modern in some instances i don't mind as long as it works better, vast majority of us back then would have liked some features we have as long as it didn't meddle with the "purity" of the concepts/intentions... at least in my experience and by that i mean "same thing but faster/better" rather than "faster but different and lacks x" >Lynx vs. JS I agree there, still because you are the CSS creator i also agree with anon above, you are the chief there and if there was an actual problem we should pinpoint it very well to communicate it properly.
>>2744 Merii kurisumasu.

Hello to all the Time Travellers, love what you guys are doing here. No pandering; I believe anachronism is the highest form of rebellion. I'm Newt (no relation to Jewt), the new owner of /agdg/ - pardon my avatarfagging. I wanted to reach out to this community and extend a formal invitation, actually more of a request for assistance, to come post on /agdg/. While posting activity is at the time limited to pretty much myself (I'm doing the 2.5D isometric ARPG/CRPG) and a few others, I'd like to think that we're representative of the typical anon's indie game you'll see on the board - reasonably-scoped with a throwback style. Platformers, RTS, ARPG, shoot-em-ups, beat-em-ups, very much '90 to '05 era. I would appreciate it if anyone interested in developing games in a retro style (or any game really) could drop by and check us out. Don't worry if you have nothing to show yet or don't even know how to get started, just drop in the meta thread and say hi and what you'd like to do or what you're interested in seeing and I'm sure something will be able to straighten you out. I personally can help with 2D game development using the excellent and free Raylib - https://www.raylib.com/ - incredibly easy to get started with and powerful. Other anons may be able to help you out if you insist on using a modern engine. >but dead board tho Tell me about it. No really, I'm trying to get things active again and I'm open to any and all suggestions. I have ideas for more discussion topics and board activities as well, but I can't do everything myself. Anyway, come on over. Thanks for your time.

>>2937 >Unreal Tournament Good luck with your board.
>>2939 Thanks for the support.
>>2940 I unfortunately can't assist in any meaningful way since I know nothing about making a game or programming, but I hope the board does well.
I've got an assorted collection of imaginary retro tech concepts, including home computers and (I think) consoles, which thread should I post them in or would it warrens it's own thread?
>>2992 Make a new art thread (or call it whatever you want). We've been posting in the same threads for a year or more now.
>>2992 Are they from the 90s or 2000s? Then post them in the vidya, computer etc threads. Otherwise just use the "Modern /retro/ material that actually does it right" thread.
/retro/ was hit by a slide attack. Since it didn't have a thread limit set or Early 404 turned on, all threads were completely wiped. Luckily, we had a backup of this particular board. This copy of /retro/ is from early June. The current Board Owner now has control of /retro/ back, although we turned on Early 404 and set hourly threads to 1 while we had control to restore the backup. The anti-slide features are there, so please use them. Next time, there might not always be backups, or the backups might not be restorable.
>>3176 Bless you for having a backup Admin, thanks very kindly.

>>3176 Damn, just seen the news about this. Stay strong /retro/ and keep up the good work. t. another BO
>>3176 Thanks admin, shitty that someone did this but fortunately it doesn't look like any OC was lost. Let's keep it going anons, long live /retro/!
>>3178 >what monster would do such a thing Two words Anon >memory >hole When certain elites want to degenerate targeted groups, they go after their history, their heritage, as one of the first things. If you forget your past and who you are as a people, then you are much more easily manipulated into swalloping any old lie they want to send down the pike against you. 1984-101 tbh. We've seen it before in various way, and they'll send their goons troons out to do it again. But you have plenty of power in this regard against them if you're proactive about it, knowing the evil they'll work ahead of time. This is why I advocate backing up your entire boards locally. Either using cURL, wget, or BUMP. Then if something happens to either your board, or even your whole site, you can rebuild it again from scratch.
>>3183 bitch please it was obviously some bored nigga looking to shit things up just because >This is why I advocate backing up your entire boards locally. this is good advice however
>>3188 Sure, just like it was 'just some bored nigger' who usurped 4cuck years ago, or who organized 2 (two!) redflag gayops to destroy it's spiritual-successor, 8ch. Who coordinated attacks against Julay when it was the rallying point for everyone. And now, Anoncafe is in their sites, seemingly.
>>3183 >This is why I advocate backing up your entire boards locally. Either using cURL, wget, or BUMP. We use https://gitgud.io/Codexx/channel_changer because it can restore its local copies back to a LynxChan database if needed.
>>3192 Thanks Admin, I'll look into it's code.
So are we just restoring the remaining lost files manually? I'd like confirmation before re uploading those fakie retrocomputer concepts because I don't want to get in anyone's way.
>>3194 That's what I've been doing. I saved all the "Modern /retro/ material that actually does it right"posts in a text file (without the images, naturally; all I have are the file names) from before that faggot finally managed to slide it off the board. The problem is that I don't have the images to go with your post. I can repost other people's stuff if they don't want to post them again, but things might get complicated with the way some of the posts are responding to images that aren't up anymore.
>>3197 >>3197 Should I reupload them to that then? It shouldn't take too long. I might even find some more in the time of it.
>>3200 Yeah, maybe you can start with the missing files for now. Then maybe I can reformat and post the replies if people want me to.

>>3176 What the fuck. This is like the third(?) time the board got destroyed. Thanks for the backup, at least we didn't lose everything this time. There were some complaints about the captcha a while ago so I just made posting as easy as possible. Huge mistake, apparently. And thanks for reposting files anons. My backups are older so I can't help out this time.
Is there any interest in being friends with wapchan? A few people over there brought up the idea, and they seem like a like-minded site.
>>3247 I've never heard of wapchan before. What's the deal with it?
>>3316 It's a retro anime imageboard that also has boards for discussing other older media like video games: https://wapchan.org/ One of the admins over there said months ago that he'd try to reach out to /retro/, but I don't know if anything ever came of it.
