Prep work is done.
This thread is for handling boards from other sites that wish to migrate here/have been orphaned if public thread creation is locked on /meta/. If public thread creation is open you are free to make a dedicated thread here, otherwise I will make one for you.
The rules for migration are :
- All Migrating/orphaned boards will be considered outside of the application cycle and should contact me at the same email address listed below.
- I will require proof that you are/were the BO/mod on another imageboard, or that the moderation team for the board in question has fallen apart.
- You must agree to follow all global rules for this site.
- You must agree to actively moderate the new board.
- If accepted, you must notify anons on the old board if it still exists. I do not mind If zzzchan is used as a bunker until a migration can be coordinated/ anons are comfortable making the switch. The new board will be unlisted in this type of scenario and will not be announced util ready.
Feel free to ping me at [email protected] in case of a happening. I'll come right here.
Just wanted to say FUCK ni/gg/ers, DELETE all ni/gg/ers, and LAUGH and MOCK all ni/gg/ers relentlessly when you see them
t. someone who makes fun of ni/gg/ers but still crossposts on 8chan because it's the only webring site that isn't a ghost town 90% of the day
Whatever happened to >>>/av/?
They went to Markchan
Hello and welcome to zzzchan! I will be using this thread to explain how this site is set up and answer the initial wave of questions. Thread creation on /meta/ will be locked initially, I will explain how this will be handled going forward below.
Now, to answer some initial questions:
>Who the fuck are you? Who are the other mods?
I am sturgeon, I was a mod back on fat/v/ and later z/v/. fat/v/ was my first role as a moderator in any capacity. I'm happy to say that Pasta and seagull have also stuck around and will be managing /v/. r9k's BO will also be back.
I intend to only use my name & role tag when posting something relevant to my role or the site.
>Why have you set this up?
Because zchan was doing fairly well before the admin pulled the plug without warning. I'd been considering making my own IB since fat died but once zchan went down I decided I had to make the effort.
>Will you abandon this after x amount of time?
I've gone through the effort of setting all this up after losing 2 previous boards. I'm doing this because I want it to, and I plan to keep this place running as long as I can.
Why did someone called alexander bad tor on /b/? In future can we have a basic IQ test for mods.
Someone answer me
Tell the BO of /b/ he banned for me real in the Free Bans Thread, AGAIN!
That's not an answer
Tor is still banned from /b/.
Use this thread to report any issues you find while using the site. We currently have 2 known issues:
1. Real-time post updates are not working. I still need to work out how to get websockets to go through the proxy properly. you will see the error switch back to timed refresh after a few seconds, so auto update is still semi-working.
2. Geoip flags are all inheriting the proxy server's location. I've already solved this issue with post IDs so I have a rough idea of what I need to do to fix this, but it is not high priority.
I also fully expect shenanigans immediately after launch, so if anything happens I will be working to fix it as fast as I can. Your help here is appreciated.
Never mind. This is an issue with the latest Chromium version or/and either the Chromium's version of this extension: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/image-search-options/kljmejbpilkadikecejccebmccagifhl
It works just fine on Firefox.
TEST ENV IS 100% STAY TUNED
I don't know if it's just on my end, but tor doesn't seem to work. Every time I try to post on the onion, my reply box turns into a little box with an X and it never posts. Last time I tried it happened with /b/ but might have been other boards too
Does tegaki not work or is it just me?
fix awebp posting pls kthx
EDIT 9/17: APPLICATIONS ARE NOW OPEN FOREVER. FEEL FREE TO SUBMIT ONE AT ANY TIME.
I will leave the rest of the post intact, please ignore the special stipulations.
Hello and welcome to the fist round of BO applications for zzzchan. I will outline the application process below, along with some special stipulations for this first round.
To apply for a board, you must submit your answers to the following questions:
1. What will the focus of your board be?
2. What will the rules be?
3. How would you handle the following hypothetical scenarios:
A. A user who is only breaking the rules of your board has a substantial post history that is perfectly fine up until the single instance you are reviewing. What do you do?
B. A spammer posts CP. What do you do?
C. A spammer has slid your catalog and all unpinned threads are gone. What do you do?
4. What time range(s) would you normally be able to keep an eye on the board?
5. If your board becomes active enough, do you agree to look for one or more vol(s) to help you? Do you know anyone already?
Oh, and does this mean you're going to delete /pol/ now? We don't need two glownigger magnet boards.
this will end well for nobody. already has a rampant 1488 retard trying to goad others into murdering everyone he doesn't like since he's too cucked to do it himself.
Quit fucking lying, I am only advocating for what NS demands, I am not trying to goad anyone into doing anything, and I have repeatedly on every form of /fascist/ critcized pointless violent action like Peyton Gendron, but I will not disavow him or anyone like Breivik or Tarrant who had the courage to take action no matter how impotent it may, or may not have, turned out to be.
>quit fucking lying, I am only fedposting
Any updates on these applications dear Admin-kun?
I brought this issue up in the /v/ gamergate thread and was told to repost it here. For reference, I'm >>>/v/26109.
To summarize, I wanted to know why minor shitposting was deleted in the gamergate thread even though other threads (like the first FPS general) had much more and much worse periods of shitposting/calling OP a faggot at the start.
The reply I got from Seagull (presumably; no capcode) was >>>/v/26199, which claimed that deleting bitching about the threads was not preferential treatment because these threads are allowed under the rules - even if the rules literally refer to them as "special" threads, and no other threads get scrubbed like that. Yes, I'm aware that the rules put ""special"" in quotations, which somewhat diminishes the strength of the word, but the fact remains that they are exceptions to rules like "effortless threads will be met with ridicule."
Seagull said to take the issue up with the BO, so here we are. I'm sure that the reply will be "stay mad faggot these threads are BASED and always allowed!" but I'm just going through the proper channels.
And before anyone tells me that this shouldn't come as a surprise, it's not the presence of gamergate threads that I'm specifically taking issue with (although I do maintain they are worthless and attract all kinds of non-vidya attention whores). My point is that if
I'm asking for the exact opposite.
Anons were right to just point and laugh at OP. We know that there is/are bad actors who stir the shit just for the sake of it, so that was the right course of action.
Every time I want to put a pin in any drama horsehit, there's always at least one sperg (in this case you) trying to pull triple fudge reverse-retard-psychology.
So lmao-ing @ ur lyfe rn fam
Whats next, you gonna tell us to visit 8chan.moe or prolikewoah? To give up our "allegiances" and leave zzzchan? Fucking retard, hope the mods dox you again.
Why are federal agents allowed to get the site shut down with plausible deniability on /v/?
I know that rapeman is new, but is he really so new that he doesn't recognize obvious astroturfing and edenposting for what it is? (I'd call it demoralization but that might imply it ever accomplishes anything.)
The "X nobody asked for" phrase gets posted literally every single time anyone suggests or tries to host a game night.
Game has been popular and proven to work? Nobody asked for it; do something new.
Trying a new game? Nobody asked for it; don't bother.
Game night was popular? Nobody asked for it; that can't be true.
I've seen this happen for literal years on zzz/v/, and the consistency plus the autistic obsession with the exact same phrase every single time is strong evidence that it's eden. These posts should always be deleted from any game night or game night-adjacent thread they're found in.
Yet when I reported it a few days ago, rapeman dismissed the reports with no explanation. Why?
Pics 1 and 2 are the posts in question. Pic 3 is another example I found in the previous game night organization thread.
If they were right then they wouldn’t be banned in the first place.
Hello cuckmoe refugees, please discuss your dumb metafaggotry here and stop shitting up the rest of the site, thanks!
POINTS OF SUPER IMPORTANT DISCUSSION:
>uuuhhh why is our shit site down???
Why is Mark so jewcy?

Really tho. Its whole request is a big nothing and it has the audacity to think zzz is stupid
Well seeing as you can't use it on half the site anyways I don't see what's the big deal.
