Migration Fellow Time Traveler 01/12/2024 (Fri) 06:11:19 No.3664
Announcement here: https://anon.cafe/meta/res/16466.html Meta thread here: https://anon.cafe/meta/res/16467.html In short, anon.cafe is shutting down for reasons that are currently unexplained but allegedly not due to interference by feds and bad actors. Some people had discussed migration in the board's first thread, but I think a topic this serious deserves its own. Come March 15th, this board will no longer exist.
>>3685 If the Webring collectively is a seedy town (or set of towns) with a rough and tumble bar or two but some swell character, .moe is the wrong side of the tracks. There a couple of legacy boards there to tempt, but they're not worth the rest. /tg/ is the old school bar with a few young'uns and more grey regulars who can tell a tale.
>>3669 A good half of this board is retro tech though. Wapchan's tech board is dead in comparison so it'd be complementary. >>3677 I would come to this board more often if it wasn't on the webring. A board I used was much better when it wasn't part of the webring after the 8ch exodus. Dreamchan had an official Twitter and was a great board from before 8ch went down.
>>3687 >Dreamchan I visited that site once and bookmarked it for later, but by the time I tried to take another look at it it was gone. It sucks it went down.
>>3684 >I wasn't aware of those things. That's too bad. I don't think I've never seen anything like that over there. Honestly, it probably "doesn't matter" in that the site admin seems like a pretty typical guy who's fallen for the typical psyops and social conditioning. But if he were forced to choose between the spirit of the site and trans representation I think it is clear what would win in the end. Does anyone actually know anything about trashchan?
>>3687 >I would come to this board more often if it wasn't on the webring I'm not sure I understand why it would make a difference to your desire to visit and post.
Looks like we have the trashchan admin's approval and he is willing to migrate our threads over there. >>3687 The only thing that would've made sense to me is proper merger if we can't find a new place, but that's not gonna happen now. >>3685 Don't worry about that.
>>3665 >On a personal note, I've seen some suspiciously worded posts on other image boards which very calmly and rationally suggest that 8chan.moe is a great alternative whose sole opponents are schizos from places you don't like, inventing crimes to ascribe to the 8moe management. That's the worst part about it. My intentions with giving pros and cons to migrating to 8chan compared to other boards are genuine and come from the desire to see communities still thrive even in the event of a loss of an imageboard, but it's impossible to have any kind of conversation about it because some people just cannot let go of drama. I mean, don't get me wrong, Mark is the consistently worst board owner (for multiple reasons) that I've ever seen and the site itself has plenty of other issues, but it's impossible to have genuine discourse when you cannot tell whether there's sock puppeting involved or people are genuinely that vitriolic about the whole ordeal. Anyhow, I hope /retro/ finds a suitable home soon.
>>3692 That's good. Hopefully the rest of the boards will follow. And what happens to you? Do you remain Fearless Leader?

Just don't move us to blacked.moe or smuglo.li. I hope /retro/ finds a nice home. Man, I never used the webring much after 8chan went down. I followed /animu/ because that was my main board back then and then browsed a few boards like this one once a month or less. 8chan was my only solace when I was a teenager who dropped out of school nearly 10 years ago. I miss it. Time flies.
>>3677 >>3678 >the board is bad because the admin doesn't hate gay people Why are you fags like this?
>>3700 It's not about not hating gay people. All that alphabet soup shit that entails reducing your entire life and personality to your sexual preferences is complete cancer. And all the "trans" garbage that's lumped in there is just putting mental illness on a pedestal and trying to normalize self-mutilation. It's a complete NPC mentality. I don't even dislike Wapchan or anything.
>>3700 No strawman here, anon. Progressive buy-in may be a slow poison, but it remains a threat regardless. It has been proven to erode the sufferers faculties until some drastic action is committed to assure more zealous sufferers watching. It is no bad thing to pity a homosexual, either for being defiled or gaslit into it, but that's not the problem.
>>3700 I don't give a fuck about that, I'm not moving to some attention whore's board who is desperately trying to recruit more people to his shitty site from reddit and other shitholes and it's clearly you so you can fuck right back. Look at the fucking /shelter/ thread, trashchan is the only place not begging for more posters and that's why it's the only correct choice.
>>3703 I think Trashchan would appreciate more posters, but I'll bet that there's some altruism in the offer too. Speaking as a primarily Smug man, I'd like to keep the cafe's userbase on the Webring at least.
Huge update: our files will be properly restored on trashchan!
>>3705 Awesome! Despite the unfortunate situation it's great to see that ultimately anons are pulling together to keep things going.

>>3705 That kicks ass.
>>3705 Noice. Shall I resume posting .hack and/or other mango stuff once the transition has been completed?
>>3705 This is such great news! Looking forward to the migration. Not a fan of the theme though, hope it can be replaced with one that looks like actual retro websites, or at least one of the Yotsuba themes.
>>3709 I believe that's traditionally just a set of CSS settings.
>>3701 >>3702 >>3703 Sometimes I forget this board is a discount /pol/.

>>3711 >muh /pol/ What does anything I said have to do with /pol/? You didn't even bother to argue against a single thing I've written. Any non-straight person worth respecting doesn't want to turn themselves into a pawn for powerful interest groups who don't have society's best interests in mind, and any straight person who supports the LGBTWTFBBQ+ subculture/political bloc is naive at best.
>>3711 This board has a no politics rule. We are not moving to your shithole bro, you can stop crying now.
>>3705 >the migration will IMPROVE the history of the board Truly a cleansing forest fire we have here, huh? >>3711 You will never be a woman.
>>3715 >>the migration will IMPROVE the history of the board You couldn't get this kind of result using a pre-canned thing like the changer software. Only the admin at trashchan doing custom scripting could give you this kind of outcome. Nice.
>>3711 Most boards are discount /pol/.
>>3717 Does that phrase even mean anything at this point?
>>3718 Not sure, but I'm impressed this board decided to burn it's bridgrs with another retro board over nothing.
>>3719 >over nothing Yes, let's act like shilling your ib on reddit is a good thing. Next you're gonna ask why aren't we allowing the agoraspam.
>>3719 >this board decided >over nothing You aren't from around here.
>>3719 Who's burning bridges? I prefer /retro/ but post on both boards.
>>3719 I am favorable towards Wapchan, but there weren't exactly any bridges in the first place.
>>3680 I didn't like zzzchan but had a good time on smug /tg/. Never touched smug /a/ though. I'm not really a fan of excessive and unseizing waifu posting.
Anyone even remotely suggesting we move to 8moe or zzz should be disregarded. Both are the absolute bottom of the barrel options for sites to relocate to.

>board about to die >PPH suddenly skyrockets
>>3737 You don't know what you have until you're going to lose it, anon.
>>3729 Well, that's handy, because Trashchan is taking us in. I still fail to see how zzz is on par for badness with the fed pedophile ghetto.
>>3700 Because reasons. Mentally ill belong in a madhouse.
>>3763 Do they know your posting here?
UPDATE >found 2 more /y2k/ banners If anyone has any /y2k/ OCs saved please post them surely someone saved /y2k/-chan right? >found all missing OP pics and a few posts we lost during the dolphinfucker incident, which means all files will be fully restored And with that we are ready to migrate to trashchan if everyone is okay with it. Of course we are not in a hurry so let me know if we should wait till the last few days or do it right away in case they pull the plug ahead of schedule.

>>3788 >Of course we are not in a hurry so let me know if we should wait till the last few days or do it right away in case they pull the plug ahead of schedule. I'm just a concerned friend and board-enjoyer, so keep that in mind. But IMO you definitely should not wait until the last second on things. A: It seems you're moving to Trashchan, and everything is now solved there for quick & easy migrations of any anon.cafe to there. B: Sh*te happens. :^) At the least I'd say pull the trigger now, then you can hang around here to the last second if you choose to, with some peace of mind. That's all, good luck /retro/ ! Very glad you're choosing to go forward. Cheers. :)
>>3788 /comfy/ BO here to tell you Trashchan is definitively a nice place and may fit the /retro/ spirit. Also the admin is a very nice fella always ready to help and for sure he's caring about the chan.
>>3788 >And with that we are ready to migrate to trashchan if everyone is okay with it. Either option is fine by me.
>>3788 I personally prefer migrating as soon as possible, and using any remaining time for notifying and redirecting anons. It will take a while for the news to reach everyone who uses /retro/ as some anons only drop by every once in a while, so let's have a migrated board ready for them when they do drop by.
>>3788 I think moving now is a good idea, if anons keep posting here that just creates more work and less time right? Also, like you said the cafe could shut down at any moment, since we don't know the exact reason it's closing something might happen before March regardless of the admin's intentions.
>>3788 Push the button, anon. I'll post the first chapter of The Big O manga to the relevant thread to celebrate and keep the ball rolling once the move is made.
>>3700 It's not THAT, it's the fact that he'd even say some retarded word salad shit like that. "i think having stories of non-heteronormative characters who don't constantly deal with struggle and end positively is important for helping people who don't fit into these categories to find someone to relate to" Seriously? It's brainrot and even without going into politics it just feels very 21st century which is really annoying to me, I like coming here as a nice refuge and I don't need the new admin to be someone who spouts modern political buzzwords. Even if he's an OK guy it seems like a poisoned seed.
>>3793 I do too, I don't really know much about trashchan but if that's where we're going, it's better to do it now and get that set up to give us a smooth 2 month transition period. By the time anon.cafe goes offline, ideally, we wouldn't even notice it.
>>3796 >it just feels very 21st century The word heteronormative was coined in 1991 apparently.
