ACHTUNG! ACHTUNG! THIS IS NOT A DRILL

Though pic related could be just shitposting, let's be honest here, something like this will likely be happening soon anyway. I doubt the webring is in any immediate danger because of it's obscurity and decentralized nature, but the menace of mass cuckchan rapefugee influx is a very real threat if it does go down. Everyone is advised to hold down to their butts, duck and cover and be prepared.

This has been spammed all over cuckchan since the election when it started having errors for a couple of seconds due to the increased traffic. Not saying that Cloudflare wouldn't deplatform some sites when they feel like they need to make an example of someone again but the screenshot looks more like the n-th iteration of the same old cuckchan hoax. What about Ruskie Cloudflare, do they deplatform?

It's time for plw to die and zzzchan will be its successor. With the lack of moderation and the abundance of shit stirrers, a lot of users are pissed and looking for an alternative. Fish, you need to create a /animu/ board here and regulate it better than the plw one. Then we will start with the smaller boards and eventually plw will die on its own and lolretard finally kills himself. Perfect plan

>I have watched vtubers since the very beginning. I watch vtubers with anywhere from millions to less than a hundred subs.
Okay. I'll try my best not to judge.
>Of course they are separate from a stream. It makes no sense to release a song as a stream. Vtubing is not married to streaming as its only possible format.
There's streaming and there's making videos. Production and presentation is what matters for the content - for videos and streams AND it is their channel that makes that possible. If you try to claim broadly that "vtubing" is also about their albums, songs, drawings, etc etc you are selling their story instead of looking at their channel with a sober head.
In short, production and presentation matters and almost no one does this.
>Vtubers do karaoke and drawing streams all the time.
Yes, and yet there's still no consideration towards the presentation.
>Some vtubers are primarily singers and/or put out single and album releases. Inuyama Tamaki was releasing music before she even become a vtuber and Nanahira has long been a famous doujin singer. Tamaki is also a published mangaka with an anime adaptation, Pochimaru is the illustrator for Okaa-san Online, and Shigure Ui is the character designer of Subaru (hololive). There are more examples like this.
Okay, so that tell me what, they're good at different things? Okay, I can understand that. But can they make good content with these things? A good song is an ASSET, ASSET that you use for something. Anime OP's are just OPs without the animation itself. I can find a good songwriter somewhere and I can find a good drawer and I can enjoy their works, but "vtubers" want to make videos or stream, that's them. They don't use their songs or drawings towards EVEN BETTER content or EVEN BETTER presentation, they're just there, there is no evolution, merely production. Not to detract from their efforts or anything, but they make potential assets and just present them.
>Again, gaming and talk streamers are standard fare for vtubers. She is not doing anything out of the ordinary. I don't know how you can't comprehend this.
Please don't give viewers stage 4 cancer
>Where are you even getting all of this shit from? You barely know anything about vtubers. You're just throwing accusations at the wall hoping that some of them stick. There are hololive and nijisanji members who have literally talked about the practise they've been doing for live events.
Even more projecting. I've mentioned "practice" that Coco fucked off to in a previous post, even. What matters and saves "vtubers" is CONTENT and we don't even know if live shows will make good content for youtube even (since that's where their content is). If a live show turns out to be a lot of fanservice and NOT something that's suited as a video, then they're evolving away from good content, simple as that.
And no, there is a specific, CERTAIN definition for "good content" instead of subjectivism. If you try to go "CONTENT QUALITY IS SUBJECTIVE" then holy shit this is a waste of time.

Since e-something means it's something that's virtual or online only, wouldn't a vtuber be an e-e-celeb?

Vtubing is also about their albums, songs and drawings. That is simply the way it is, and I am not comprehending why you are even trying to dispute it.

>Yes, and yet there's still no consideration towards the presentation.
What even is this "presentation" that you keep obsessing over yet never define? And what would you know about vtuber karaoke streams?

>Okay, so that tell me what, they're good at different things? Okay, I can understand that. But can they make good content with these things? A good song is an ASSET, ASSET that you use for something. Anime OP's are just OPs without the animation itself.

Songs, music videos, albums and concerts are content. They have as much as "evolution" anything else. Vtubers are, again, not magic. They don't follow some magic rules that you just pulled out of your ass.

>Please don't give viewers stage 4 cancer
How am I giving anyone cancer by plainly stating simple, unremarkable, factual things about her channel? You sound like a snowflake.

This might sound like shilling later on in this post depending on how you look at it, but I want more imageboards around instead of centralization coming back. Fulfill the purpose of the webring to create decentralized imageboard instances.
>Why not create a separate tengu style board for chuuba discussion if the meido shortage is that bad?
I have doubts that sturgeon would be willing to create anymore entirely new boards besides existing ones that are willing to setup bunkers here after what happened with /a/. If you still want the vtuber board, either create it on a different webring site or a very good thing to do is to create your own site with the vtuber board, preferably running meguca since its cheaper, has liveposting, and vtuber discussion is better suited for liveboards. Or you can just go with JSchan if you still prefer the traditional imageboard.

About meguca/liveboards
>meguca since its cheaper
Meguca is AGPL licensed and free. Hosting an average meguca instance is cheaper than hosting an average traditional imageboard due to meguca auto pruning threads after a dynamic amount of X days while traditional imageboards tend to keep the threads around for possibly the whole site's lifespan if the board is dead.

Shouldn't it also more efficient with the backend being written in go/rust? Lat can however take his goddamn v7 and shove it up his ass. Is he still planning to remove boards alltogether? Haven't really found any instance I like better than the original meguca but chen/pol/ was very fun.

I'm making a new thread because this is important.

Allow new threads to be made earlier in /v/. Popular threads get bumplocked and then get stuck in the middle of the catalog for many weeks, wasting a big chunk of potential discussion because people don't see new posts and thus won't reply. And don't give me this "just go down the catalog" shit, if you think about it for 7 and a half seconds, you'll realize that there's no way for people to know when someone posts something on that thread without either specifically checking that thread over and over and over just in case someone posted or by memorizing every thread's post number. Nobody wants to do that shit, thread bumping was invented for a reason.

>but muh catalog will fill with repeated threads
So fucking what. You're basically using problems with the IB software and moderation inconvenience and ancient months old threads as reasons to reduce board activity. Nobody cares if one of the 3 month old friday night threads gets deleted in favor of a new thread about cyberpunk that everyone wants to shit on.

This is, in my opinion, one of the foremost mistakes that imageboards make. I recall in 8chan the activity in /agdg/ always plummeted as soon as the thread got bumplocked, what exactly is the benefit of this? Assume there's no problems with the catalog filling up or whatever, why would you argue in favor of this? You fucking wouldn't.

There is none, it's a leftover from 4chan which has had it since time immemorial and nobody ever bothered to think about it since. Bumplocking and bump limits function as a replacement to having pages on the thread like normal forums do, you need one or the other or else the thread bloats until it lags up your browser. Bumplocking itself works as a soft-lock, you can phase out the thread without abruptly locking it entirely, so people have time to migrate and post links to the new thread and don't necessarily have to reply to people across threads.

The primary problem with bumplocking however is as mentioned; there's a time period where nobody outside of the thread can see when a new post appears, and thus can't respond to any discussion or questions. This was never a problem in 4chan since it's so fast that threads get deleted shortly after bumplocking, but it becomes a problem in slower imageboards like these where threads get stuck in the middle of the catalog for literally weeks or even months and then some naive BO says that you can't create a new thread because one already exists.

The ideal next evolution of the bumplocking design (as opposed to pagination) would be to allow a new thread immediately after a thread gets bumplocked, and then handle the previous thread in some other way than just leaving them all in the catalog. Ideally you'd solve it with imageboard engine features like some kind

So some fag reported us to the proxy hosts, and I was politely told to fuck off within 24 hours about ~8 hours ago. All of the existing proxies are on the chopping block and there's really no appeal I can make.

But I'm not quitting
BECAUSE THE FAGGOTS THAT DID THIS ONLY HELPED MAKE THE SITE STRONGER

I already have a proxy on a host in a certain part of eastern europe that has far worse customers than zzzchan, they will not give a shit no matter what we do here. It's also a much better server, and should hold up fine on it's own for a long time without the need for an array. Smaller satellite proxies may come into play later but for now I won't be dealing with load balancing issues. I had hoped to float by with the array on normal hosts for a bit longer since it would have been cheaper but at this point paying a tiny bit more isn't the issue.

Eta on the new proxy is within the next 2 hours, might be later but i have until tomorrow afternoon. Its not hard to set up. If the site breaks in that time frame I'm in the middle of switching over. The onion will be deactivated while redirecting and will come back after the switch


On the plus side, zzzchan is now even harder to kill thanks to this
The app server remained obfuscated through all this and can still be hosted wherever I like. With the proxy soon to be on a no-fucks-given host there is effectively nobody to report the site to. We

>You will currently not be able to access any v3 onion addresses, what is happening is unknown, but it is potentially a huge attack on the entire network. Earlier today I made a post outlining consequences I would be putting into place to deter markets from funding DDoS attacks against each other, as the potential to scale and completely kill every node on the network is a very real potential outcome. Now everything is down and I have no idea if this has sped up the process of this occurring or if it is even an attack at all, all I know is, this is big.

>The Tor network is not fully decentralized. When you first connect to the Tor network there is hard coded IPs that your Tor process uses to bootstrap your connection into the Tor network. These IPs allow your Tor process to load up the network’s consensus. This consensus tells the Tor process things like what relays are within the network, which are good relays, bad relays, which are guards, exit nodes, how much traffic a relay can handle, that kind of idea. Your Tor process gets all that information and validates it by signatures of these hard coded IPs. These hard coded IPs are called authority nodes. There is currently 10 of them on the Tor network. And they are why the Tor network cleared out V3 onions for a period of time.
