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.

>Nice namefagging
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.

>but rather why? 
Where do you think you are? A lot of people from imageboards are not just autistic, but rather SUPER AUTISTIC EXTREME TO THE MAXX if they perceive someone has wronged them in some way, they will never EVER let go and WILL hold that grudge until either side is dead. They will make that mod who that day deleted their post their life sworn enemy, and they will dedicate their lives to denouncing and standing up to the evils of said tranny/faggot/nigger/rulecuck or whatever nickname is hip at that moment in time. Just read their posts, you can just FEEL the passive aggressiveness from them. If it's not that it's people who don't belong anywhere, not even on imageboards. Losers among losers, who get their fun out of crab bucketing wherever they go. On the outside they sit on a very, very, very high horse "Heh, I'm not like them, I'm better" but in their subconscious they're brats who've never grown past the mentality of "Well I can't have fun, then no one else can"

That said, the mods are not without guilt. seagull in particular is a fucking retard whom, if I hadn't known better, I'd think he's actively trying to hurt /v/ with his retardation. I honestly don't know who the fuck handed this moron the keys to anything and why he's still around to this day.

All in all it's tilting at windmills. Infighting when we're so few gets no rew

As long as there are divisions, separate websites on the webring, etc, there will be this conflict. This will not end until all the OG 8chan remnants consolidate and pick one breadwinner. The problem is that everyone currently is firmly rooted to their home board (though smug is currently in distress and bleeding users) and the only way they will leave is if their home gets taken down or dies. So be it, I say. I wouldn't mind seeing all the elitist assholes across the webring thinking their particular version of hell is any better than the others being forced to pick some other side to fight on due to displacement. This isn't a matter of outsider aggression, since frankly all webring sites have the taint of 4chan and other undesirable sites on it. It's a matter of symbolism after 8chan, the proverbial king of the hill, got unceremoniously destroyed and scattered the many boards to various sites of varying strength, reliability, and administration. Every other site in the perspective of any one site is an enemy, and just another boogeyman. This will only end if there is one left standing. Considering who runs each one, I'm not liking our odds. But what options are left, letting yet another site enter the webring just to divide the users even more, even if it is ideologically and structurally sound? I'd take the mediocrity of late-era 8chan over

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.

>dude, off-topic spam is totally a free speech issue!

And this is why you failed: there are more /ita/ threads on 4/v/ than on your board and they are somehow of higher quality, it's frankly pathetic.

Then what the hell do you want me to do, exactly? I had set up the meta thread to encourage people to come up with sensible rules and it just became a designated shitting street. 
I cannot even add moderators or block TORspam on Julay, why exactly do you think I tried to move it onto blacked.moe?
Replies: >>3484
>can't add moderators
Should have locked the section ASAP and pin a link to whatever vaguely usable alternative you could set up.
Hindsight is 20/20, of course.
Replies: >>3486
Well, that is why I tried to move to Blacked dot moe in the first place, I should have probably been more drastic instead of giving people a choice in the first place
Sadly I went through all the trouble of finding a way to force a manual account creation for the other mods and they haven't shown up since

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.

Please understand, admin is too busy moderating /v/ and /b/ for their respective board owners and acting like he owns the place. Has no time for fixing small bugs in code. Please understand.

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?

It unambiously is an anime/manga board (it's /jp/). Considering that you're not posting anime/manga threads on the inhouse /jp/, what do you expect to do on /jam/ that you're not doing right now, delete the few meta posts on your wasteland of a board?
