Please make an even worse captcha, thanks.

The problem where you get the same captcha over and over seems to be caused by caching. Since the captcha image is loaded from a generic url (/captcha) it loads the result that was cached previously. You can fix it by using "/captcha?unique_number" instead of "/captcha" as the URL (where unique_number can be anything as long as it's different, for example current time).

Post board ideas that could have been possible rather than still born shits like /vhs/, /a/, /hikki/, /fa/, and /tg/. 

Also, when will the rest of the aforementiond boards be deleted?

hark, you have fallen for my scheme. by pretending to be retarded you have thought it'd be safe to peddle whatever bullshit propaganda you found convenient to fuel your narrative and trick me! however you aren't a smart as you think. now let's review what you said
>>/tech/ created, BO soon after goes rulecuck mode and causes some dissidence, some people suspect him of being dolphin, a massive /cow/ sperg because the BO made a rule of no loli or something
that is indeed true what you forgot to say is that the suspicions were found to be true as he himself admitted being dolphin and was caught spamming under the same IP
>Sturg rips ownership of /tech/ and gives it to someone else 
indeed, but is that meddling? that was the only course of action, no one on this site or anywhere on the board disagreed at the time and no one would do it today
>>One or two autists, frustrated with how PLW’s /animu/ allows vtuber threads, raise hell on /b/ and /meta/ about how they want their own /a/ on zzzchan without vtubers
>sturg, the coward he is, acquiesces and makes an /a/
I don't see how you'd call this "meddling" with anything at all
>sturg brings /a/ back under a new BO, kicking out the old one and putting in place the current BO of another dead useless board, /vhs/
and? how are either of these issues? how is that tampering with anything or meddling with boards? in fact, what do either of these stories have to do with my original question which was "why should the admin meddle with how bos run and moderate their boards?" it's almost as if...
>Someone asks sturg to make a /tg/, he agrees
>new /tg/ is just like the one on smuglo.li in design but is advertised as without the rulecuck moderation  IRC faggotry
>/tg/ slows down to a crawl and sturg mercy kills it himself
and at last, ladies and gentlemen, he shows his true colors. this is what you were really butthurt about the whole time and this is EXACTLY what I wanted to bait you into saying. what I'm going to state next is going to shock no one but you and it is an absolute, certain fact: no one on the webring or outside or on this pane of existence but you cared about /tg/ eden. I'll say it again NO ONE BUT YOU GAVE TWO SHITS ABOUT IT THEN, NO ONE GIVES TWO SHITS NOW, AND NO ONE WILL GIVE TWO SHITS IN THE NEAR OR DISTANT FUTURE. no one used your /tg/ and barely anyone uses /gaymoo/ because you are a spiteful, unlikable idiot.

I don't really see why the whole /tg/ thing was a big deal. As just a regular ol' user of sleepy, I thought it would be nice because it might help get more users to this site, which was even younger at the time. Maybe because I don't use smug/tg/ and any shilling with possible lies in it went over my head, but I can't really remember anything except people talking about Eden. Fuck the annoying auto grammar janny, I can understand tbh but is afaik or iirc really that bad? but that's probably all if the mods aren't as bad as what I've heard smug's flagship board /a/'s moderation is like.

>I don't really see why the whole /tg/ thing was a big deal.
that's the thing: it wasn't. the board was up for 6 months and didn't even get more than 150 posts, more than half of which were in the meta thread. no one used it and no one cared for it, it was made out of pure blistering butthurt eden, the fag who made it, had for smug and as you said it was indeed shilled with a hint of maliciousness and not much transparency. when it got deleted it went out with a whimper and no one has missed it since. no one but eden of course.
>Fuck the annoying auto grammar janny, I can understand tbh but is afaik or iirc really that bad? 
the auto janny is annoying yes, but the thing is it's not and wasn't ever enabled on /tg/, yet the fact zzz/tg/ didn't have one was one of the "selling points" eden kept peddling.

>those two examples don't count because....well because I say so nigga!
Nice argument, but ripping away ownership, even if it's from webring-wide bogeymen, still counts as admin meddling. 
Also, seagull is doing well enough a job already of proving his /v/ doesn't work without me trying to persuade anyone. I'm not as omnipresent a bogeyman as you make me out to be.

Resume the postings on /b/ immediately.

For too long the webring has been influenced by the whims of /tech/ wizards and xenophobia rather than by those who wish to have fun with like-minded individuals. The purpose of imageboards has always been a gathering point for discussion and creation of OC, and yet increasingly we see the webring eroding away as boards find themselves unable to retain users as bad actors continue to abuse the naturally reclusive nature of anon to force those who hold out into tighter-knit communities that continuously eat away at their own userbase in the hopes of maintaining the illusion of an organized state of affairs that simply no longer exists, and shutting up any dissent to this status quo. 8chan is dead. 4chan is controlled by the enemy. The anonymous alternatives outside of the webring are generally cancer, and the deep web and peer-to-peer websites will always be too niche. The old gods of lulz have lead to a warlord-like state that is not conducive to generating discussion, while the bastions of culture and historical precedence we have held up as the new gods of the webring have failed to provide us with a means of retention as they cannibalize their own and grow increasingly corrupt. We talk of fallbacks and archives, and yet in the midst of a new season of anime  boards like /animu/ and /a/ are at all-time lows during the cusp of a new season, with core members of the old 8chan stronghold being chased away from even engaging in the webring over technicalities and us-vs-them mentalities. Some even go so far as to violate the essence of the webring at the mere mention of outsiders appearing, while others actively stab their counterparts in the back to hold onto these few users that still hold out for a brighter future. 

What do we have to show for our preservation of the old guard? Absolutely nothing. A dying userbase across a scattering of websites where even those who considered themselves defenders of this status quo are unable to come to grips with the reality that they are a dying breed, or who try to stand stoicly in the face of death when they could so easily roll out of the way of the death blow because they lack the courage to face the future head-on. When others notice these things and address the elephant in the room, they are smacked down by their peers like crabs in a bucket, or the /tech/ wizards who lord over their serfs look upon them with disdain and cackle about how they can always start their own imageboard whilst smacking down any attempts by the serfs to rise above their masters with ridicule and scorn, as was seen first-hand by many after the fall of Julay last year when several attempts at a better tomorrow were snuffed out, entirely ignored after pledging technical support, or mocked by the "elite" in charge of the most popular webring websites.

I'm not here to spread fear, uncertainty, and doubt, but I won't play around with formalities and putting on appearances to suck up to the current "heads of state" as they be either. If I thought this was a problem that could be fixed by money I'd be more than willing to throw four figures worth (USD) at the problem, but the only solutions money can buy require time and investments, as well as a willingness on the part of either the acting front-runners of the webring (something they would never agree to given the radically different approach I propose) or third parties that would naturally not be trusted. The fact of the matter is, when an organization of any kind is faced with a looming, imminent death, they have three choices:
1) Surrender.
2) Die like dogs.
3) Adapt.

I propose that it is high time that the webring as we know it adapt if it wishes to see a future that isn't a slow, bleak, death march that can never be recovered from since we are well into this critical juncture. One must adapt, yet we are constantly in fear of adaptation as it brings the unknown, an uncertainty that what we know and love may just disappear. I propose an alternate interpretation based on my personal interactions within and outside the webring as a wandering imageboard nomad:
Your childhood is dead. Everything you know and love has already dissipated into archival obscurity.
Rejoice, for you now have the option to become your own man not tied and bound to the whims of anyone. As the Greek philosophers of the past had reasoned, you have actualized and are not bound by the whims of those who wish to control you. Do not fall for the chaotic memes of many bad actors in this newfound enlightenment. There are those who seek you harm, there are those who seek to control you, and no rules the likes of which many have tried to espouse after becoming drunk off this realization.

I propose a new imageboard, or rather a new paradigm shift. I propose an adaptation that seeks to keep the spirit of anonymity and preserve anon's right to post loli cunny and say nigger without being beholden by the strict xenophobia of the webring or drowning in an ocean of cancerous piss the likes of 4chan. A board that is driven by tbe ideals of an old, forgotten time but that is willing to put the webring's policies where their json file is by being radically different. Rules, but no rulers. I propose a new charter to guide a new imageboard based on the following principles as old as human civilization itself:
1) A clean slate that is not subject to the hearsay, prejudices, and superstitions that stifle the modern webring. An entirely new imageboard that respects the old as a dead civilization while carving out a new existence that recruits by word-of-mouth from 'any and all' websites without prejudice, be they 4chan, Meguca, the webring, the alt-webring, standalone websites, or even social media. Let anons stand on the content of their character and their ability to follow the website's charter and ideals, not on their history. A leviathan that grows both naturally from within and artificially from bad actors who are scoffed and laughed at as everyone else has already pissed on that street corner. A platform that is much like the Ellis Island of America. Civic pride in one's culture without xenophobia, if you will.

Projects off for now.


I haven't had to solve it in months and the mechanism is not 100% clear until you've actually solved it once since "solid/filled icon" can refer to seeing the entire image as a grid rather than just the symbols.
> 1) A clean slate ...  that recruits by word-of-mouth from 'any and all' websites without prejudice. ... Let anons stand on the content of their character and their ability to follow the website's charter and ideals, not on their history. ... A platform that is much like the Ellis Island of America. Civic pride in one's culture without xenophobia, if you will.
> 3) A platform where all boards on it are subject to the same global charter on user treatment and moderation transparency that set an even playing field, but that allows autonomy so long as this global charter, which shall be a 'living document', is abided by.

As much as I agree with the earlier sentiment of your post, I don't understand why you would model a community off a failed state. Whatever the original merits of the American constitution and its principles were, and I do appreciate them, they are long dead now. I don't think that view is controversial around here, I doubt you'd even strongly disagree. Why pursue this old naive idealism? We have an opportunity to explore new frontiers.

> 2) A platform in which advertising from outside and from within is mutual, protected, and guaranteed in at least one thread present on every board.
Encouraging interboard advertising is good. Requiring it seems like overreach though, and a potential threat to niche groups. Unless you mean by mutual that this would be opt in. 

> 4) A platform in which a board owner council consisting of equals may have veto power to accepting new boards, but also the power to veto another's veto.
> 5) A platform in which no board owner's coveted position is sacred, and for which this veto power may never be used to stifle or snuff out competition.
> 9) A platform that discourages bunkers and dead boards. All boards will be required to show they are being meaningfully used (even if just by two or three people) in order to justify their existence. Quotas, but in a meaningful and involved way that understands nuance.

This needs more elaboration. This would likely impose a limit on the size of the council, (say 50+) past which no decision can be made without it likely being countered by 
someone. How does one enter this council anyway? If you just give anyone a board and membership of the council, it will just be 8chan. You'd need to add a probation period for new board owners before they are full members of the council. Then, those who don't meet quota requirements are booted.

Where are the proofs then? Of course it's edited, the fag blurred out his actual details so he can't be swatted by some antisemite who definitely didn't come from here. What matters is the dollar amount, and I would assume the worst for that because the worst is what always happens and thinking otherwise is why the webring is a stagnating punching bag for cuckchan rejects.

the fag edited it so it'd look legit, it's fake. but either way it doesn't matter, nothing will happen, as usual, and even if it does, it'll be funny at worst, ebin at best.
