Welcome to /c/! Professional Retard Board owner 04/22/2021 (Thu) 01:04:24 No. 3
This is a board of relaxed nature where anyone can discuss a wide variety of topics. Talk about what you did today, share pictures and music, complain about the world, tell a sad story, or just post cats. The point is to have a good time with others. /c/ is a safe for work board. Save gore, porn dumps, heated politic debates and other not nice things for boards better suited for them. Have fun! [This thread will serve as a meta thread for feedback, suggestions and banners]
That image isn't cute at all, you're doing a terrible job
>>4 says you
>>4 Lies. Biscuit is beautiful.
congrats on the creation of this board
I have shockingly little faith in this BO is a sleeper agent at best, active shitter as we speak otherwise
I knew it, this isn't marked SFW at all!
>>8 :( >>9 I couldn't find a way to mark the board as safe in the management page.
>>10 Did you look for assistance on >>>/site/ ?
>>11 Just did it. In the meantime pretend that everything is fine.
Alright, it should be safe for innocent eyes now. Cheers to Parias for helping with that.
well that became a quick disappointment
>>22 Don't forget to mop up any spammers and the current NSFW poster
>>3 How can I have a nice time when there are overused, unfunny, normalpleb-created content that is considered "acceptable" just because they happened to also be found on sites like this one?
things are going well so far, thank you BO
>/c/ Users: 0 site is a gay
>>99 Fix'd
>>99 >site is a gay The gayest.
>>3 Thank you for making this board, there's too many lewd boards and not enough for wholesome content.
If you'd like a board vol to keep things a bit cleaner, I'll help out with my account "Chai" Otherwise I'll just continue reporting what I see and let you get to it when you get to it
>>81 >>114 I'm glad you're liking the board. >>123 Just added you. It' s always good to have an extra pair of eyes doing periodic checks in case of spam and similar problems. For now all I've been doing is deleting shitposts of extremely low quality (one liner posts accompanied by a gross or NSFW image), without bans unless it's part of a larger attack or something possibly illegal (things that haven't happened so far). If you're not sure if a post should be deleted leave it at that (spoil the image if it's NSFW) and I'll take care of it.
I suggest these word filters (if they aren't in place already) >top priority tbh > desu to be honest > to be desu >entirely optional hell > heck fuck > heck god damn > golly gee All case insensitive
>>200 The tbh filter from cuckchan is top retarded, honestly.
>>201 I'm nettled that they stole my wordfilter idea tbh
>>200 stealing tbh
>>209 original filters do not steal
>>216 If you don't want somebody to steal something you need to put © on it, then you own it forever and nobody can take it.
I've been using this CSS to browse your board, might as well share it. https://files.catbox.moe/gaqxz1.css
>>585 Thank you kind anon, though its a bit too bright for my now ruined eyes
>>607 Same, it's a tragedy. I love bright colors, especially pink, but my eyes just can't stare as a screen filled with that. I always use Tomorrow
>>585 Looks exactly like the current theme but with a custom background image.
Come funpost at https://freech.org/fam/ We're dead.
I thought it would be a good idea to take advantage of the board message to promote other boards in a similar way as >>>/b/ promotes this board and the loli and shota boards promote each other. The boards currently displayed were selected based on my personal interest in the topics each one deals with. However, I am completely open to suggestions on which boards should be displayed in the board message. Is worth mentioning that only 256 characters are allowed in the board message, and to make it more complicated the markdown of each link consumes a large amount of characters (for example, a link in character c' requires to be written as [c](https://8chan.moe/c), so I can only display a very limited number of boards. Still, feel welcome to suggest a change in the message.

>>1001 1000th
Is this board related with Microchan? Microchan was an imageboard, with just a board: Comy random.
>>1004 Nope, but I was partially inspired by it to create this board. It was a nice little board that disappeared as suddenly as it appeared. That said, don't mind if I merge this thread into the meta thread.
>>1006 >Nope, but I was partially inspired by it to create this board Great. >It was a nice little board that disappeared as suddenly as it appeared. Yeah. I miss russian anon.
kind.moe is back up again, with more kindposting. Wish them well! As smaller independent imgbrds come up it would be difficult to gain population in them, we can't advertise them and without lack of activity, they will wither away. What can we do?
>>1248 Every board is already pretty withered regardless. This site desperately needs some injection of activity. Even outside of qanon shit 8kun still sees a lot of activity for whatever reason. Seems like people just have no clue this site exists. At this rate I'd almost propose people start making and managing social media accounts on designated non-pozzed platforms for the purpose of "advertising" events and such. Like making a LBRY channel and post videos about game nights or dropping links to boards or event threads on mastodon instances.
>>1249 We, as /c/, are the comfy place to acclimate new people to 8moe. I don't wanna use social media though
>>1250 Thankfully retards like acid and mark seem to love it, so maybe with a guiding hand they can be used for something more productive.
>>1251 Personally, I found this place through the webring. The boards I used to use on 8ch migrated over to a few webring chans We nixed that cross-pollination vector, I hear. Would be a little awkward talking about 8chan irl. I'm not likely to spread the place around often
>>1252 I didn't say anything about "IRL". I'm just brainstorming an idea. For example, acid could make an official 8chan.moe mastodon account, do a weekly/monthly hunger games, then whichever board wins the hunger games can get a "toot" yes I think that's unironically what they call posts on mastodon instances advertising their board. This brings activity from newfags but on a platform that is significantly less cancerous than typical social media. In fact it could even bring very high quality activity over since the kind of people engaging with weird federated social media sites are autistic to begin with. When the site updates it could be announced on mastodon. Webm's from game nights or other OC anons create could be uploaded to an official LBRY account, shit like that. Utilizing platforms that are used by small numbers of people that are generally concentrated with specific kinds of users to begin with and funnel them into the site. It's the only way I could think of reviving this dead site organically. As things are now 8moe has no way to self-sustain a healthy flow of users without relying on some external method of injecting fresh blood. And there are awful ways you can approach that issue and then there are decent ways you can approach it.
>>1249 8kun has only qresearch and vichan, vichan is a polish board, qreserch alone generates pph as this whole site, but you won't call it success now.
>>1252 One of the better things is that most webring user have no qualms with other webring sites. Hell even smug has most folks have no ill will towards 8chan, just the standard cowtards and people trying to fit in that are loudest. Small communications between these small boards are the key, which will happen overtime.
>>1258 It won't happen overtime, rather over progress, as we try to get them together, having them know they aren't alone here. Step by step, we can attract people there who desire small comfy communities, not just posting advertisements. I do think we should take the first step towards that.
>>1253 I dig this idea, specially the part about promoting boards based on the results of hunger games. Mark is the one who manages 8moe's Twitter account, so you may want to tell this idea to him and convince him to make a Mastodon account (preferably on shitposter.club).
>>1253 >I didn't say anything about "IRL". I know, I'm the one that did. I'm saying I don't use social media, so my means of spreading it are limited, and the obvious one where I spread a lot of my itnerests, IRL, doesn't really suit this one. >mastodon I've used that, though only via baraag. I hear various communities have their mastadon based sites. i think Pawoo is one? I think this is unrelated to fediverse, another network of social media with similar "you can make your own and link it up to the rest" like mastadon. Maybe they're related, I don't know. At any rate, it sounds like a good idea >>1258 The comfy boards across the ring are friendly about each other, but I notice a lot of the others are really hostile. PLW seems to hate everybody, tvch is a cesspit, any random/b type board seems to hate others, and every /v/ hates every /v/.
>>1278 >i think Pawoo is one? Pawoo is a Mastodon instance owned by Pixiv. Consider it a nip baraag. >I think this is unrelated to fediverse, another network of social media with similar "you can make your own and link it up to the rest" like mastadon. You may be thinking of Pleroma. Just like Mastodon, it is software that lets you create your own "Twitter clone" with whatever rules you want, and to peer with users from other instances without having to make additional accounts on each one of them.
>>1275 What are the differences between pleroma instances like shitposter.club VS anime.website? I went to anime.website and saw people posting images of children posed inappropriately while arguing it's "legal", so that made me instantly want to avoid it. I assumed most instances served the same content as they would all be federated with each other, but that doesn't seem to be the case. So I wonder if certain instances are more federated and therefore reach a much wider audience than others. I've never actually used any of these sites myself so I'm not certain on the gritty details of fediverse shit. I'll probably make a thread on /site/ about this soon.
>>1279 >owned by Pixiv That makes sense! >Pleroma Maybe! Doesn't sound familiar, but I don't know much.
>>1280 >What are the differences between pleroma instances like shitposter.club VS anime.website? Each instance has its own set of rules and moderators, similarly to how different boards on 8chan or imageboards on the webring have their own rules and staff. These instances can "federate" with any other instance that hasn't actively blocked them, that is, users with an account on site A can see posts from site B in their feeds and interact with them without needing an account on site B, similarly to how you can send an email from gmail.com to outlook.com. >I assumed most instances served the same content as they would all be federated with each other, but that doesn't seem to be the case. So I wonder if certain instances are more federated and therefore reach a much wider audience than others. That's the norm for most instances. Sites with common topics federate with each other in order to increase their overall activity, and in case of general purpose instances like shitposter.club and anime.website they federate with almost anyone who doesn't hate them (they only blacklists instances with too much spam or malicious behavior). >>1281 Mastodon and Pleroma are the technologies that let people host their own site (called here instance). A site using any of these technologies can "federate" with another site that uses them, creating a network of websites that interact with each other in many different ways. Baraag and Pawoo use the Mastodon framework, while shitposter.club and anime.website use the Pleroma framework, and since both frameworks use the same protocols sites using them can peer to each other without problem. Aside from Mastodon and Pleroma, there are other frameworks for federated networks of different kinds. There's PeerTube for video sharing and streaming (like Youtube or Vimeo), Lemmy for news aggregators (like Reddit), Pixelfed for image sharing (like Instagram), etc.
>>1282 I see! Very informative and cool! I like the term federate, it feels epic.
There is E3 going on for whole June, and all the /v/ boards are making squilliams. This is something that is common for all, and have to work together for them. Have people share squilliams in different boards, show them so that they don't remake the same character. Don't post as "this is 8/v/ squilliam or z/v/ squilliam", just have them aware that they are not alone. This will in turn atleast expose them to other boards work.
>>1278 Drawfags in different drawthreads and boards already communicate well with each other, Why not for comfyfags for comfy boards?
>>1248 I can promote kind.moe and similar boards/sites using the board message just like I'm currently doing for various boards. However, since the message is limited to 256 characters some of the present boards would have to be removed. I'd like to hear everyone's opinion on this and see what can be done with the board message.
>>1323 I feel disinclined to advertise functionally redundant boards. No hate of them, but we're already kindposting here.
>>1323 advertisement/promotion alone is not good though. It simply behaves like 'Hey guys check out this site!' and seems selfish. Ironically crossposting seems good as no one on /kind/ would go "go back to blacked.gov".
Hey guys (｡•́︿•̀｡) I'm the BO of /vapour/ among other boards and I'm currently looking to make another board, alas I can't since I reached board creation limit. I saw that it was linked here and I really appreciate that so instead of just deleting it, I was wondering if anyone wants ownership of it?
>>1607 Ask acid if your board's threads can be moved to other boards in case you don't find a new BO. /t/, /vr/ and maybe even this board could be good hosts.
>>1607 >>1610 I'd be happy to merge them into a vaporwave thread on /t/, if that's a suitable solution for you. Please e-mail codexx at cock dot li from the e-mail you validated with your log-in if you'd like that done.
How did you do this?
>>1759 That's just the board message area with links to other boards stylized with Markdown. Here's how things look on the settings panel: '''[Cooking](/ck) / [Coolness](/cool) / [Gondola](/g) / [Movies](/vhs) / [Retro Games](/vr) / [Tech](/t)''' Full links are used because the board message doesn't support cross-board links like >>>/site/ that internally work in a whole different way. Because of this, clicking on the links on the message from any domain that isn't 8chan.moe will redirect you to it, resulting in a possible loss of settings, (You)s and even a 404 page if the links direct to the loli/shota boards, /h/, /b/, /hebe/ or the board list page. Disregard this. I found that you can link to other boards without writing the whole URL by simply adding a / before a board's URI, like going from https://8chan.moe/c to just /c. Not only this saves a lot of characters, but makes the links compatible with any domain and not just 8chan.moe. I edited my original Markdown code to reflect this discovering. The moderation page details how BO can use Markdown on their board messages: https://8chan.moe/.static/pages/moderation.html

>>1761 Good to know! On a side note, I personally don't like /cool/
>>1764 >I personally don't like /cool/ Maybe you aren't cool enough for it B^) Anyways, now that I figured up how internal links work I freed up aroung 100 characters, so I now can add more boards and text to the list. If there's a particular board you'd like to see there say it and I'll add it to the list.
>>1765 Oh could you please add >>>/vb/ >>>/k/ >>>/kin/ And do you have >>>/404/ ? Thats a fun board. Nsfw though.
>>1838 >Oh could you please add >>>/vb/ >>>/k/ >>>/kin/ Done. I'd love if you told the owners of these boards to add /c/ back and form a sort of "board ring" or mini directory. >And do you have >>>/404/ ? Thats a fun board. Nsfw though. My current approach is to highlight boards that don't tend to rank high on the board list, and since /404/ has been fairly up since its creation I don't think they need advertisement here. Maybe if/when things change I'll add it to the list, I honestly like their theme and how every thread is full of odd stuff. By the way, the message its almost at its limit (249 characters of 256), so I'll probably have to start changing or removing things in order to fit more boards or a different message. The board message list is open for suggestions, and this includes proposals for changing and removing parts of it, so feel free to leave your word on the matter.
>>1860 Ill see to it personally anon. I love this idea.
>>1860 Okay ive explained the idea. Provided demonstrations, and asked nicely. We shall see when the BO wake up. But your up on /k/ Right now. Thanks for showing me how to do that btw. Super cool.
>>1860 >>1862 >I'd love if you told the owners of these boards to add /c/ back and form a sort of "board ring" or mini directory. Hello my comfy friends, I added the board message to /vb/. Great idea I like it, thanks for adding us and thx anon for your help.
I added some links to >>>/kin/, sent here by another user. I discussed the idea of having a little board network on this site in the meta thread of my first board, but I never actually got around to bringing it up with other boards. I think this is a good idea, since 8chan.moe has terrible board discovery as it is. >>1860 >By the way, the message its almost at its limit (249 characters of 256) Maybe we can ask over on >>>/site/ if this limit can be removed. I seems like an arbitrary limit for a BO anyway. I'm sure there isn't a technical reason for the limit. >>1838 >Nsfw though It might be worth noting that >>>/kin/ is also technically a nsfw board. The idea behind it is basically to experiment with a board that's between /b/ and /c/ in terms of moderation, where the main rule is that users can't be "unkind" to each other, detailed as well as possible in the rules page, but there's always gonna be exceptions. However no kinds of topics are explicitly banned. Hence the (current) board description "/b/ kind".
I added a background image (original file at >>>/site/162) to the custom theme, and I'd like to hear your opinions on it and the theme in overall. >>1865 >I seems like an arbitrary limit for a BO anyway. It probably has a short limit because the board message is supposed to be used for displaying short updates, not as a mini directory.
This board is very comfy, it feels like a nicer version of our old home. Unlike other boards I can see people discussing here in a polite manner, but also respecting an array of different opinions. It does not seem like a circlejerk. I like the fact that I can actually talk about things with anons, without devolving into the usual slur shitflinging it does on other boards. You guys are great, thank you.
>>2033 It makes me smile that you're happy, anon
the finance and biz thread is anchored, should I make a new thread? I don't want cyclicle so that old stuff can get archived and having a new thread once every while means new activity
>>2091 Feel free to make a new /biz/ thread and give it a proper OP forma. There's plenty of space for it. I also made an archive of the previous thread at https://archive.is/3fna9 and https://web.archive.org/web/20210725013550/https://8chan.moe/c/res/652.html
I made further changes to the old Yotsuba P theme in order to make /c/'s edition its own thing. While I'm mostly satisfied with the new theme (there are a couple of things that I may change later), I want to hear everyone's opinions about it.
>>2114 I'm glad you finally realised you had to remove the @imports at the beginning
>>2117 I swear one of the site's admins told me that adding the @imports was required to make the theme fully compatible with the site's defaults (Yotsuba B) and to have a specific [code] theme enabled, but honestly I never noticed a difference.
>>2120 It loads Yotsuba briefly before loading the custom theme. You can see it on /sample/ every time you refresh the page.
8chan was just updated, and as a consequence of it pages look broken (specially custom themes) and some features don't work. This is because the caches of the site need to be refreshed across the various servers and proxies, but things should return to normal once they clear out everything. If there's something broken even after the caches were refreshed, contact Acid or codexx on >>>/site/, or inform me if the problem involves the custom CSS of the board.
I'm going to kill myself
>>2187 What's a nice way to say Do a flip faggot
>>2187 Why?
>>7 Flan!
>>1282 Posting this three months later, but Element would also be a good, not-so-cancerous place to advertise 8moe in. They just recently got \$30 million in funding to expand their operation and speed up development, so now's a great time to get in on the action. t. Totally not a paid shill
>>2218 Do you have a channel set up or something?
>>2221 As a matter of fact, I do! Here it is: https://matrix.to/#/#8chan.moe:matrix.org t. BO of >>>/s/
>>2239 I got banned from the official matrix server for complimenting Matthew Hodgson's large chin (CEO/CTO of Element). He was in the server so he might've seen it. He didn't ban me when I was helping another user troubleshoot yesterday. It was the user "Administrator" that banned me rather than his account,so maybe it wasn't him who took offense. Whoever did ban me needs to get a sense of humor, they were poised to instaban me as soon as I joined another official Element room. If you're reading this Matt, I forgive you bro.
>>2245 Banned from the entire home server or just some room?
>>2248 Just the matrix server room
I'm making banners at request: >>>/b/52642 Feel free to request one for your board(s).
So can we talk about suicide on this board? The original infinity had a suicide board, and that's actually how I found it.
So can we talk about suicide on this board? The original infinity had a suicide board, and that's actually how I found it.
>>2274 >>2275 Sure. You can talk about it on >>2121 or make a separate thread. The only condition is to avoid posting images of self-harm since NSFW media in general isn't allowed.
I was wondering why /b/'s PPH was so high on the board list, lo and behold it's in an absolute state due to some pointless drama or other. This is why I browse /c/ anons, /b/ will always be a shithole.
>>2239 I just joined now and it won't let me write anything on there.
>>2743 Other folks have joined and posted on Element just fine. I don't know what to tell you, anon. Were you Abdou dossary?
>>2763 No, it says right in the bottom where the chat panel is that I don't have the necessary privilege.
>>2764 lmfao that's weird, considering other users have posted. I'll take a look at it and see if I can fix it.
>>2764 I fixed it, it was the space that messed it up. People that joined the room without joining the space were able to post, but the space's permissions override those of the rooms within it and it was set to admin-only messages for some reason. Thanks for telling me so I could fix it!
>>2768 It works now for me, thanks.
>>2770 No problem
>>2772 Is there any new message when I joined your room? I'm wondering if my version of Element is bugged.
>>2779 Not that I can see, no. Dunno what to tell you, tbh
>>2779 Check your DMs, I may have found a solution.
>>2824 >>2810 Thanks, the issue was that my Element program was on 1.7.24 and they didn't bothered to add a notification that told me that I have to update the repository, no wonder I lagged behind.
I think the list of affiliated board needs to be looked over, as some may no longer exist such as >>>/vb/
>>2959 Weird, I wanted to edit the board message but it seems that I found a bug that makes the system ignore links. I'll report the bug tomorrow. In the meantime, I want you to help me decide which other boards should be removed or added. I was planning to keep /ck/, /vr/, /s/, /t/, /vhs/, /k/ and /kin/, add /404/ and remove /g/, /tikilounge/, /tw/, /cool/ and /vb/, but I want to hear commentaries about it.
>>2961 Currently I think that's a fine list, maybe add /vg/ since they have /c/ already linked.
>>2961 /k/ encourages this move. The board message needs lebensraum.
>>2961 >/tikilounge/ As the pseudo board owner of /tikilounge/ I'm sad to hear that but I sort of understand.
>>2961 The links are all down?
>>2961 Yo BO, you in the element or not?
Hey BO, please put your comfy CSS back on. if you need help with a theme just let me know, I can help.
>>2989 Yes. The admins haven't been able to fix the strange bug with the markdown on the post message. >>3003 No. I have never been a fan of using services that require accounts, sorry. >>3004 Restored. I removed it under the assumption that it could be messing with the board message in some way, but it seems that the problem is being caused by something different.
>>3008 >No. I have never been a fan of using services that require accounts, sorry. That's okay. Thanks for fixing the CSS!
>>3009 While we gained more users from niche fetish communities, we also lost many others to the herdniggers that took over /b/ and created /hebe/. It scared away a lot of users.
>>3010 So then things are more or less exactly the same then?
Does anyone know where my cooking thread is? I could have sworn I was posting pictures of meatballs and fresh baked bread rolls here...
>>3013 I ate them t.hungry tyrone
