Requesting Boards Anonymous Board owner 09/01/2019 (Sun) 02:54:24 No.3 [Reply] [Last]
Self-service board creation is disabled. Anon.cafe doesn't grant boards to anyone who asks, but perhaps we'd like to host your board. 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 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 and/or demonstrate a failure to thrive may be deleted. 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, even behind spoilers)? >Is your board brand new, or a re-creation of a board from the past? >Do you have posters already eager to post on your new board, or are you hoping to attract them after it is created? If the latter, where do you expect to draw them from? >Does your board substantially duplicate or overlap with any other board on the webring? If so, what is so different about your board that you want to make another one? 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.

>vainamoinen >/gonsot/ >Gondolan Soturit >The board would exist mostly for Finns to discuss and organize around the political Covid-situation more freely than in Ylilauta (eg. Ylilauta blocks Tor and VPN, no anonymity). English threads would also be welcome on the board. >SFW >Brand new >I expect a lot of posters will be attracted because of this quickly escalating situation in our society. I am setting up the website and irc ASAP for the movement when my vps activates. >No overlap with any other communities. If it takes a very long time to accept this request, I will have to look into other options because like I mentioned, the situation is escalating quickly.

>>15294 Pretty sure that's /christian/ BO's problem, not site owner's problem.
>>15302 we need a new GLOBAL rule that bans all wojaks.
>>15303 Wojaks are not illegal in Romania, however
>>15302 The problem is that the BO is MIA. It took another vol to delete all that spam.

With Julay and Fatchan both gone, could this place evolve to be the next "center" of the webring? If so what can be done about it?

Please remove 8chan.moe from your webring following list. Blacklist optional. Anonymous 05/12/2021 (Wed) 05:13:35 No.14384 [Reply] [Last]
As it stands, anon.cafe is the only site in the webring that is following 8chan.moe. Other sites have blacklisted the site in history for numerous reasons. This site is currently the only site in the entire webring that is following 8chan.moe. I'm here to convince you why you should stop doing that. 8chan.moe has been extremely unpopular amongst anons across the entire webring for numerous reasons. It's getting to a point that it is impossible to ignore the complaints. Please hear me out entirely. First is the fact that after many months and several lies, they have absolutely no interest in conforming to webring standards. They are one of the only sites in the webring that has failed to conform to fair practice in the webring by failing to fully implement the webring plugin. Very few sites have failed to do this, and the other sites are for the most part rather small. 8chan.moe however, is the largest site in the webring currently with the most activity, and they have failed to implement the webring after several months of being asked to. They have no interest in joining the webring properly. If you don't believe me and need proof, please read this thread: https://8chan.moe/site/res/1880.html Several months ago you blacklisted 8chan.moe from your site because they failed to properly implement the webring. They still haven't committed to fully and properly implementing the webring. When people complain, they ignore it. They have never been interested in properly implementing the webring. All they care about is that people from the webring get advertised to visit 8chan.moe and they have never had the good faith to enable the webring GUI on their site. It has been several months and they have not fixed it. They won't even respond to it anymore. The second biggest complaint is that they harbor Mark. Mark is known for bringing the press and other undesirables to anything he inhabits. The fear is that this could eventually infect the rest of the webring. However, without proper integration to the rest of the webring, this is honestly unlikely, but it is still a complaint that is raised. The third and most recent complaint is that 8chan.moe has begun to allow content that is not legal in the United States and is very likely not legal elsewhere. The United States is usually considered the pinnacle of free speech and even their limitations, such as the DOST test, are echoed around the rest of the world. This is what caused 8chan to be delisted on the only other site they were listed in the webring. Pic related. The fourth and final reason is just plainly that you cannot trust the word of Acid. He has made so many numerous promises to correctly implement the webring and even at the beginning he started the webring with some "peering agreement" thing which backfired at him. He decided to reverse that decision as soon as he became bombarded with webring users who complained at him. However, due to a lack of complaints about his extremely bad-faith nature and his flat-out lies about his intentions, his site has been allowed to be included in a substantial part of the webring for months now. It's time to remove his site from the webring and stop trusting him. My hope is that you will remove him from your following list which will remove him from the webring. I hope nobody in the future is ever suckered into adding back 8chan.moe. Thank you for reading this post.

>>14463 Have we ever considered that there may just be too many boards for too little posters? If the whole webring had just 2 or three general boards where you can discuss everything there would be no problem at all.

Why is zzzchan's hidden service blacklisted from your webring.json?
11 posts and 1 image omitted.
>>14770 The main reason is probably that being on the webring means association with shit stirring trannies
>>14772 Niche topic boards really have very little to gain by joining the webring, I recall that /otter/ only ever had one or two anons trickle in and leave again while it was on anon.cafe.
I'm going to put my question here because I don't want to open a new thread. Which board from the webring aside fron 8moe and this board are allowing board creation by their users?

>>15274 You meant sites? First of all markchan.moe is not part of the webring. Secondly, and answering your question - none. That train is long gone, the big traditional imageboard formula is dead because it's so easily susceptible to jewish takedowns as was seen with 8chan. The webring is a decentralized congregation of smaller sites with tighter board control made to combat the hebrew menace.

I remember there was once /fit/ on the webring but I don't remember where. It's gone now, is it hidden?

Deleting Boards Anonymous Board owner 05/02/2020 (Sat) 09:49:50 No.10741 [Reply]
This thread is for boards that are going to be deleted. All boards up for deletion will be given a minimum of seven days notification before it happens to allow them to be evacuated. It's not fun to cull boards, but it is necessary for the health of Anon.cafe and the health of the webring. There are no set criteria for deletion, but factors that make a board more likely to be deleted include long inactivity (if that board is not a bunker) with no signs of revival, a long-absent owner (if that board is not a bunker), very low post count/indications of stillbirth, and other factors that indicate the board has likely calcified and is unlikely to revive. Well-maintained, unindexed bunkers will not be deleted unless their community appears to have disappeared entirely. As of now - Saturday May 02, 2020 at 0935 - the following boards have been selected for deletion: >>>/girltalk/ >>>/lovelive/ >>>/mh/ >>>/psyid/ >>>/int/ >>>/nofap/ Boards at risk of being considered stillborn include: >>>/hentaiclub/ Boards that have had no activity but are presently exempt from being considered stillborn because of Julay.world's circumstances include: >>>/icup/

I don't know where to post this, but what is up with sportchan? It barely links back to webring and doesn't even follow cafe and zzz, and still follows 8moe. Last activity doesn't work on both ends for some reason. And there isn't /meta/ I could find there. I don't mind the site but their webring plugin is strange
>>15226 Their webring plugin is broke and they don't know how to fix it/don't understand advice offered to them from what I recall. They asked for their numbers to be frozen until they can fix the plugin but to still display them in the webring, to which at least a few boards must have agreed to since that's what it does. That was a year ago?
>>15212 I like /doll/
>>15212 /toy/ is deader than /doll/
>>15240 They are both dead boards that need to be pruned with sportschan and trashchan.
