The backup domain is located at 8chan.se. .cc is a third fallback. TOR access can be found here, or you can access the TOR portal from the clearnet at Redchannit 2.0.

Please be aware of the Site Fallback Plan!
In case outages in Eastern Europe affect site availability, we will work to restore service as quickly as possible.

WE ARE PLANNING THE 2.8 SITE UPGRADE FOR THIS WEEKEND, MONDAY EVENING 6-27. DOWNTIME WILL BE BRIEF, AND THEN WE HUNT FOR BUGS.
(Estamos planeando la actualización del sitio 2.8 para este fin de semana, del lunes 6 al 27 por la tarde o por la noche en CST. El tiempo de inactividad será breve y luego buscaremos errores.)


8chan.moe is a hobby project with no affiliation whatsoever to the administration of any other "8chan" site, past or present.

Board Nuking Issue should be resolved. Apologies for any missing posts.

Lets discuss Retroshare. Why aren't you using it? It has: >Chat >Mail >Forums >Channels >Boards >File Sharing >And More It is an encrypted peer to peer network which can be set up to use Tor and/or I2P to hide your IP from glowniggers. Given that this is a tech board, I'm sure you'll figure out how to set it up. To get started you'll need frens, add me and post your certificate so other frens can add you too.

Not anonymous last time I checked. You could set your name to 'Anonymous' but you could still be identified by your public key fingerprint. Not a deal breaker but still.
>>5912 All the P2P applications I have tried have no anonymity. Is it impossible to have a P2P anonymous message board?
>>5912 You have to run separate instances if you want to have both an instance for clearnet and an instance for Tor/I2P. That you shouldn't tell anyone who you are in real life is obvious when using any anonymization network... all anonymity systems work like this. That's like telling anyone your I2P router identity or your Tor hidden service public key, if they know who you are then it's over.
>>5921 That's not what I'm saying. I'm not talking about people being able to identify you IRL. I'm talking about it being pseudonymous rather than anonymous.
>>5889 >add me and post your certificate so other frens can add you too. Sharing your key online or through email defeats the whole purpose of Retroshare. This can be a good way to learn the program and do testing, but don't post anything that you wouldn't also post to the clearnet >>5912 >>6408 Retroshare is intended to connect you with people you already know, not keep you anonymous from strangers. You have to physically share your key with them in order to add them to the network.
>>6446 >This can be a good way to learn the program and do testing, but don't post anything that you wouldn't also post to the clearnet In other words, you can test it out by connecting to strangers, but don't think that you are anonymous when doing this. There was a case of someone in Europe using Retroshare for filesharing and they got busted for copyright infringement when they added a copyright company as a friend
Has anyone seen any security audits of Retroshare? It is open source, but I've never seen a code audit.
>>6652 Also, what do you think it is best used for? It has a lot of functionality including chat, email, forums, channels, file sharing, and supposedly VOIP if you install the right plugin I've tried all of that except for VOIP. It seems to work pretty well, but some things seem a little buggy or not well polished
>>5913 >Is it impossible to have a P2P anonymous message board? If you have something to say you are not anon
Is it possible to use Retroshare on Tails? Or should I avoid it?
>>5889 >Chat that's the first reason that comes to mind
