The place to discuss and post our assets like banners, CSS ideas or promo material; due to the site's policy of board meta threads needing to be inside the board itself this will also function, for now and reluctantly, as the place to do so too. Be not afraid to comment.
>>1049 >since we're finally organizing we shouldn't succumb to it I want to say the same but one never knows, we did bleed a bunch of people >Wait, that's a new one Part of the Otium et Ludus my friend, we are a general entertainment board ;^). Perfectly legal in Romania too as long as we don't wage money or play here (which we can't anyways) because that's jurisdiction of a bunch of tax men in Bucharest, i checked just to not cross them accidentally. >In that pic I posted. Fuck i didn't see your pic. That's funny, now that i remember i don't recall ever tweaking the Catalog page, i am surprised it even looks half decent there. Right i will get to it when i get bored of the Flight Thread. >what's that chess pattern thing supposed to be? It's the Super Monkey Ball patterns, one of our fav OSTs back in the OST thread and one particular game fond in /retro/

>>1071 >Knowing the know just makes the challenge harder I suppose. There's a reason this puppy is as fearsome as "the new board" >I never expected this arc to have a plot twist, i suppose you can delete all these Right. Nothing happened here, just beer talk about how to reliably throw dice at the carpet table and win money.
Oh I remembered the other thing. So you wanna go with a lite version of the rules similar to >>256 ?

>>1120 Yeah, actually have both of them. In theory this is already done: https://anon.cafe/valis/res/rules.html ...or was, it gets Error 404 for me but in the settings page it supposedly done (pic related) and i recall seeing it well once. Guess something broke in the meantime.
>>1122 But I mean the pinned thread that most people will see.

Profuse apologies, i did some stuff past weekend and played Minecraft around Tuesday, my hardware failed and i was left without opportunities to post. My ankle connection suffered some mishaps and the machine was left bed-ridden, at least this was somewhat fixed with Indometacin hot fix patches but only today it could somewhat run well enough without the need of an external support. prease understend can post hardware to prove it still i will further look into this problem and tomorrow (i suppose in 12 hours) will resume restoring without delays now that i can run it well in my chair and desk now; Only 100 posts to go as you did a lot of the lifting there. Do you have an additional thread in mind? >>1158 Welp, let's see what happens, old place usually had the implicit culture of long-winded posts so i will stick to its obtuse nature. At least the short version is already written so no worries m80
File Deleted test
>>1282 Funny, i remember seeing a File Deleted icon once or maybe that was another site. Test shows the mod options here gives me "Unlink Files" rather than "Delete Files", our option leaves no traces of someone having uploading something to begin with so can't say if we can add a custom image for that as it doesn't have one to begin with.
Catalog text fixed, waiting on comments about the thumbnail size and... Welp, might as well open the place now, God bless this ride
Oh, sorry anon, I kinda checked out after you were gone for a week, and then I got ill :^( So where do we advertise?
>>1352 >and then I got ill :^( You okay bud?, i got banged too but i feel okay again, drowsy at times due to painkillers but we are there. Played a game again after a while, waiting and not playing often do make the experience more rewarding but time flies fast. >So where do we advertise? I posted on /meta/ a quick ad but no noise yet, the tv place seems precarious and wouldn't attempt it explicitly because i haven't seen someone inquiring about a new place lately, the rest of the anons are just hanging out with silly posts so i don't think they will take it in a serious light plus discord/dramafags roam often. I can't think of anything other than /k/ which had its fair share of crossposters back then, the /k/anteen is a nice thread to leave a message but can't think of anything to post as i don't recall their pastimes other than that radmod thing, maybe the flight thread? And now that i think of it i might tackle the old kong place directly like we said, that should be okay as the BO seems open and nobody bats an eye there anymore. In theory we are currently at the third step Public Opening and new posts to bump in Overboard (presumably by us) so anyone which might or might not be us :^) can make threads now so, chips ahoy
>>1353 Yeah I'm okay now, got hit way harder earlier this fall. >the t* place oh god no, gotta avoid it like plague. >And now that i think of it i might tackle the old kong place Yeah, some anons still check it once in a while to see if anything happens. Also maybe /animu/, it and /vg/ were the two kindred spirits that broke away from the legacy cancer back on the old site. I know they have /geimu/ but since it's dead clearly people aren't satisfied. Honestly, basically anywhere with a general/meta thread that isn't a known cancer place. Also, the thing is, I understand trying to keep low but we have to be more explicit about what this board is when advertising. Maybe something like this? >Just wanted to mention a new board /valis/ is now open. >It's a place about entertainment systems using video or rich visual mechanisms as feedback that may or may not have been put together by a few 8vg anons :^) >Discussion can also range to saloon activities like cue games and card shuffling due to their social and classic nature in the ludic activities of people around the world. >Having or remembering fun and sharing tips and tricks sounds like the goal, come visit sometime
8vg is back? Nice >>1352 The /retro/ vidya thread and the /kong/ julay/v/ thread seem to be a good place to start if you want to find 8vg anons.

>>1354 I sweated bullets hard yesterday when the site went down for hours man, nice that it was only a hardware problem and not an outsider thing. Rocky start with all these time bumps, hopefully it's all lean now. >maybe /animu/ >they have /geimu/ but since it's dead It seems they got a spike in activity since two days ago, checked animu's meta thread to see how to stab in not so obviously but so far i guess it's too disconnected from /geimu/, guess i'll find a way to get into it more subtle. Also now i know more backstory to Neutral Milk Hotel that i think i needed, /mu/ would be on suicide watch if they knew back then. >Maybe something like this? The change is good, don't know why i didn't think of it as it is more obvious yet not aggressive. Very well i will throw them a bone And it was done already, thanks a lot my man, your help is noted. In theory things should move a little now. >>1357 How you doing sir, we are afloat again it seems.
Bit of a newfag here, but how is this board different from Smug/vg/?
>>1364 smug/vg/ is just /a/'s vidya board. No relation to 8vg. This board is kind of like an 8vg legacy.
>>1364 This >>1366, Sm/vg/ was made to encompass most activities done by their main /a/ population inside general threads, the old site had moved a bit away from the general and allowed more specific topics as long as it maintained the usual userbase style which cannot be measured. Also it's general games/ludic activities too :^), if you wanted there's cue games, card games, projectile games, as long as it is specified and not put cryptic in the thread. also no hassle about grammar issues as long as it can be understood, no warnings for spelling colour rather than color

>>1367 But colour is the correct spelling.

Are you gonna restore the 6th gen thread or should I just make a new one?
Open file (59.14 KB 500x375 1461785727057.jpg)
>>1398 Fuck, didn't recall we had to do that one too. Would prefer a new one just for the kicks. Also got tips in that /server/ thread, just checked it recently. Seems i can make the thumbnail bigger but image doesn't go beyond that size, still need to manage how to move around that (256px width seems like the original place's size), surprised to see it could be done because i don't remember other boards trying to. Will probably change the spoiler image to the original one you posted and,,, there's something i feel i am forgetting
Open file (135.37 KB 1200x630 cssmaster.png)
Late but it seems here it is, newgrounds being buck broken, thumbnails should be bigger but due to the thumbnailer working separately from the site probably not very high res. Right now it's at 220px at width, 256px seemed too big and original worked in % but surpassed some boundaries and technical difficulties ensued; 200px at height stretches out especially in multi-file posts. Replaced the spoiler file because i restored it too low res (128px) and the old version here is good plus better res. Also added a cute unnecessary border around files too because i found some CSS code for it on a small questing IB i found after i engine searched, maybe too unnecessary so if some rather not have it we can take it out.
>>1418 That spoiler pic is super big. Or maybe it's fine that way and I'm just used to tiny ass ones.
>>1419 Tried to be close to the original board/8ch style but 256px seemed too big due to vertical images going a bit too big, if restricted in height it disregards aspect ratio but i think there might be a way to maintain it too as the old site did. Guess we'll look into it later, so far nothing seems that strange.
>>1420 I was actually using Yotsuba. It seems there's a discrepancy in image size between it and CSS.
Open file (297.22 KB 1288x976 saturnchart.jpg)
>>1426 Hellfire, it seems for some reason i picked the non-scaled spoiler image (the original) rather than the scaled 256 for some inane reason, sometimes the spoiler uploader seems to not respond so you have to upload again, i think your dummy here picked the big one the second time, same happens with the CSS files and banners which upload twice if you click twice too. Also spoiler files sometimes do not update, they preserve the image of its moment (thumbnailer feature) which we can see at the beginning of the thread. Here's a new test, let's see if i nailed it on Tomorrow and Yotsuba.
>>1429 Yeah now it works universally. Though no border on yotsuba.
You alright anon?

>>1486 Hey there, not really but i am still alive, haven't checked lately until now although i could've done it via phone but... you know, phoneposting is a sin. Things are looking up, thanks for the ads around in the ring, they seemed to work good. Guess i'll prepare/search again some content for a thread i suspect might be opened soon enough, meanwhile is there something that needs to get done? >>1430 >Though no border on yotsuba. It's Custom CSS exclusive so far, stock ones have no variations that lasts after a refresh.
>>1489 Phoneposting is alright if it's justified. Don't die on us now :)^ >meanwhile is there something that needs to get done? Everything seems to be alright. Some cancer posting here >>1478 Btw do we have a vol of any kind?
>>1491 >Some cancer posting here I am almost dead certain it's reviewanon who posted at the very same time someone at /christian/ shitposted them and his post got corrupted as you can see his original two images in the post there, it's an old bug but it's been many years since i last saw it. Perhaps i should repost it to keep his comment clean but i think that second image he tried to post was gameplay so i will wait. >Btw do we have a vol of any kind? Not yet, thanks for reminding me because we are getting a bit of speed. I have an idea, i had two but one is unfeasible now as a BO got himself out. Many have for some reason, boards are starting to get centralized via ownership rather than host site
>>1495 I don't think so, it's a copy of this post >>1363 and like you said it's some autist from /christian/ going and spamming that shit across the site. Just delete it. >i had two but one is unfeasible now as a BO got himself out Hm, want me to be one for the time being? I usually avoid it but since I'm here anyway and you have issues irl I can help out.

>>1496 >it's a copy of this post >>1363 I think he would understand if we scrap it, very well it is now. Despite reading both and replying to one i still didn't find it to be the same post, i have a severe mental fog it feels like i'm having Groundhog Hours at times FUCK >for the time being? Yeah sure, even if you only cover once in a while it would be great help, i've been getting dumber by the day lately due to the anti-inflammatory meds. Hit me with an account name and it's done.
>>1500 Aw sheit anon, you take good care of yourself. Just as we got the thing rolling this malady happens :^( >Hit me with an account name and it's done. I made one named weebanon.
>>1496 It's not someone from /christian/. They're fags from a raiding site based on wojakposting, and some anons have posted a link to that cancer site to warn them about it. I do wish that the wojak post in here gets deleted because the admin won't do it.
>>1516 >site based on wojakposting sounds like cuckchan
>>1516 Yeah i meant the guys on /christian/ that are obviously giving them trouble, non-locals. The last known BO they had, that i know of, is the guy from /islam/ so you can expect their trademark attention to non-muslims there lol, there's few global vols here due to anon.cafe being relatively niche so a couple of them do all the job once in a while but recently we've been getting more attention due to the consistent numbers and amount of boards. If anything it's a litmus test for some BOs, usually the same boards are the ones getting hit with shit (comfy, meta, k) but from two weeks ago some others have been getting some flack too. It's not that major so no worries, vols might have seen them but they probably don't want to meddle with posts that technically don't break any rules but in custom are universally frowned upon.
>>1517 It's even worse than cuckchan. I'm going to spoiler it because it's just cancer through and through. https://soyjak.party
>>1520 >normalfags discovered a meme and run it into the ground, the site
>>1520 Invite them to the webring
>>1518 >The last known BO they had, that i know of, is the guy from /islam/ That is incorrect.
>>1527 A new one? i've lost count already so i apologize if i got it wrong. >>1523 Many such cases.
>>1528 Pretty sure /christian/ never had a BO from /islam/.
