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.
/tv/ and cuckchanas if there's a difference aren't that creative. A simple word filter will get them 99% of the time. They are only here to wait for their bans elsewhere to expire.
smug/a/ please stay in your hole
Bans doesn't work for me child.
And clearly english too.
>worldfilters as a moderation tool, because it worked so well for 4chan
>automod, because it worked so well for reddit
As always, those who don't know history are condemned to repeat it
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.
why does my flag still not work
Why does when you save the webpage on this site, even if images are expanded only thumbs are saved in the folder? It's extremely annoying. Please fix.
image loading bars, possibly. turn off in settings and try again. it makes all images blobs so they might not come out in a saved webpage.
why not allow posting tracker music?
inb4 it can be abused
Captcha is easily passable without changing the IP.
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.
He was already asked if he mentioned 8chan.moe and his answer was "I don't remember". So you aren't going to get much about what he actually said until it's released so he can lie about what he actually said once he knows what they put out there for us to see.
He's being evasive but whatever he's said, the documentary shows his twitter handle, which contains 8chan.se which is one of the 8ch.moe handles. He's given away their site to the press and indirectly these as well.
>the documentary shows his twitter handle
Where in the trailer is that?
it's not there, he's just lying
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?
>Mods posting Cuckchan memes
Back to blacked.moe, niggerlover
>Being so fucking retarded you somehow see this post as supportive of .moe
>he says while posting a blacked.moe gamergate thread meme
benis, amirite fellow gamergater!?!?
>Eden is the BO of zzz/tg/
Jesus fuck, I'd forgotten about that. I could always identify the smarmy posting style but I didn't actually realize it was him.
You have brain damage.
THE CUCKCHAN RAPEFUGEES ARE COMING TO THE ENTIRE WEBRING SOON. THEY ARE ALREADY MASS MIGRATING TO NANOCHAN
hoihoi might just mass murder the cuckchanners and survive the exodus
Have >>2685 and the gookposter. Those happened.
i doubt it
Yet both are there and constantly spamming threads as if it's no one's business.
You can also find instances of phrases such as take your meds, schizo, X lives rent free in your head or cuckime when there were none to begin with.
Cuckime. Take your medications, schizo, Trannies and Faggots live rent free in your head.
>MASS MIGRATION INCOMING ZOMG
>post rates remain at usual values
How many times are you faggots going to cry wolf?
The average PPD of 4/pol/ alone is above 150000, the average PPD of the entire webring is not even 1% of that: if there was an invasion of any particular site, no matter how half-assed, it would drown native posts by orders of magnitude.
But you faggots with your faggy siege mentality have an insatiable need for invincible enemies and hopeless fights, so you just can't stop making up this shit and then falling for it.
I wouldn't be surprised if one of you wrote the 4chan post in the OP.
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
You were banned for being a faggot that links to fucking IGN, dumb nigger.
It wasn't me, I just know that faggot power tripping jannies need to be watched.
It's really just seagull, I hardly ever see sturgeon or even pasta do anything but dismiss reports or delete spam/cp, while the bird nukes whole threads like it's nothing on a daily basis.
>nukes whole threads like it's nothing on a daily basis
Alright, show me examples of "daily thread nuking" then. The logs are there available to everyone.
>still has fatchan icon on browser
If you weren't a newfag you'd know that the fatman icon is something that Sturgeon has tried repeatedly to replace. He's said that icon literally isn't anywhere on the server and that the files all point to the starry Z icon, but the fatman takes priority for some reason that nobody can figure out.
Your next reply will be:
>oh ur atually dumb enough 2 beleev that? smh
>why did therad get deleeted????
<you shouldn't directly link to IGN, you stupid fuck
>power trip mauch??????????????
Sophistry. You're a nigger and you should be shot.
Recently this trailer was posted to blacked.moe. After it was posted cakekike came out admitting that he is going to be in this documentary as well. Right now the trailer is sitting at 1.2 million views after 4 days of being released. Based on the trailer it almost exclusively is featuring content from 8chan/8kun and seems much more focused on imageboards than Qnigger bullshit itself. In all likelihood the documentary will namedrop the webring or sites within the webring. It is very possible that it could gain enough traction to trigger an influx of cancer. Time to clench your assholes while you still can and brace for impact. Also there's some hilarious embarrassing clips of Ron in here give it a watch, what a fucking autist this hapa is.
I knew it was going to go down this way. It was nothing. Anons need to lighten up and stop being such drama queens.
There's still a chance since there are more episodes coming out, but I guess the worst has passed since there was nothing in the opening episodes.
I wonder whether they are running out interesting things to post or just have low testosterone.
The best solution to getting rid of normalniggers is loli guro. Most normalniggers will just immediately close the site in disgust after seeing it.
Configs are evidently not perfect yet, I'm digging to see what exactly happened and will try to make the failover actually work as intended.
Apologies for the downtime everyone, I will outline what exactly happened (at least as much as I can) here along with my plans to prevent it from ever happening again.
1. The proxy host fucking died
This is why there was downtime at all, but n0t why that downtime was such an issue. As much as having an eastern European host that doesn't care benefits a site like, at the end of the day its still run by the cock.li guys ##it's not cockbox##. The following points will outline why I could not mitigate this and how I plan to in the future.
2. I only had one proxy
I kept putting off setting up a second proxy. There's no other explanation, I kept putting it off and eventually forgot. This paired with the not-so-reliable nature of the single proxies host was enough to fuck the site. I will be setting up a second, cheap proxy that will function more as a fall back with it's own subdomain. Balancing an array like previously is a huge pain, and often broke. I've reviewed a few different hosts that will probably not cuck out like the last ones did, and a $5 vps with them will be perfectly serviceable.
And for the dumbest, most bullyable mistake:
3: I didn't backup my fucking proxy configs
All of the nginx config files used for the proxies have changed substantially each time I have had to make server changes, and I didn't back shit up when I set up the current one. This left me unable to rapidly set up a dirt cheap vps to work as a stop-gap in the meantime regardless of their TOS. ##We'd be off it before they could handle any reports anyway##
He's not the BO
>go to bed
>no new posts so it was dead all night
I'm going fishing
If it's any consolation it was a new issue that I am working on a new solution for. Appserver host had to retart part of their infra and my shit didn't get rebooted automatically. I'm looking to set up a nagios server to automatically kick things that are down and scream at me when it cant.
sall gravy baby
its good to be back thanks for the hard work
Stop ignoring this.
If you're gonna be against calling 8moe shit because you're against board wars or whatever, at least you could delete boards literally made to promote drama and infighting like zzz/tg/.
Proof of zzz/tg/ BO being a sperg:
Literally has the same writing style and arguments as https://smuglo.li/tg/res/17543.html#18981
We've literally given him all the time and space to say whatever he could want about smugloli and prove that the meidos were influencing /tg/, but he hasn't said anything but FUD like some sort of shill.
I don't care too much about zzz/tg/ taking up HDD space since it's dead, but it would be hilarious if the board was deleted because the BO was such a fag. It'd be a cleaner end than the state of undeath his board has existed in since he made it.
The zzz/tg/ BO is also likely Eden, since (as someone mentioned in the smug thread you're linking to), PLW/geimu/ had an advertisement on the index for zzz/tg/ when the latter was first made. It wouldn't make sense for a video game board to promote a traditional game board on a different webring site unless there was a connection behind the scenes.
>since (as someone mentioned in the smug thread you're linking to), PLW/geimu/ had an advertisement on the index for zzz/tg/ when the latter was first made
and that's without mentioning the fact he has a bone to pick with the meidos much like the "anon" on the meta thread on smug/tg/ and the "anon" BO of zzz/tg/, very coinkydink. I honestly dont't get this eden character, he seemed so reasonable at first but then he quickly dropped the act and started sperging out at every possible occasion
What are you talking about?
What part is puzzling you? Be more specific.
What happen ?
>site goes down for many hours
>still no explanation a whole day after coming back
It was the FBI, wasn't it?
>he doesn't know about bloatFE
