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?
6. Why do you want to be a moderator for this board?

STIPULATIONS FOR ROUND 1
- I will be taking applications for up to three boards, two of which are reserved. 
- The 2 reserved boards are /b/ and /tech/, the third can be anything else, though I'd prefer to hold off on porn boards.
- Applicants for /b/ do not need to provide answers to questions 1&2 or hypotheticals A&C. /b/ will be global rules only.
- /b/ & /tech/ will only be added if I get a good application for them. A lack of applications for either will not open another slot for a different board.

STIPULATIONS FOR ALL ROUNDS
- I am not looking to add /pol/ at this time. If this ever changes I will announce it.
- I am also not going to accept boards dedicated to more extreme fetishes. Nothing akin to /abdl/.
- I am not looking to poach certain boards that exist elsewhere on the webring. For example: as much as I'd love to have /k/ here I do not wish to split what's left of 8/k/ between here and anon.cafe.
- If I like you application but do not add your board in a given round, I will let you know and may even reserve a slot in the next round. Obsolete rule
- If your application falls a bit short I may prompt you to fill in the gaps. 
- I reserve the right to not accept boards based purely on their focus. This does not mean I will deny boards I have no interest in, such as /r9k/. I think variety is important for imageboards.

STIPULATIONS FOR ORPHANED/MIGRATING BOARDS FROM OTHER SITES 
- 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 until ready.

Other than all that, I am now accepting applications at  [email protected]  , I look forward to your applications!

I know you're not planning on adding /pol/ "at this time", but all the same, I'd like to apply for it. Shall I send you an email with my filled out application? Either way, I hope you'll retract that part some time soon.

I'll take your application but /pol/ will bring more heat here than anything else. I want to at least get more in the way of contingencies  in place before I consider adding /pol/.


Also, I should clarify that I don't mean for applicants to post here, you only need to email me.
>>146
I think it would be better to have a /n/ - News board than a literal /pol/ board. /pol/ in name brings only underage retards and glow niggers. /pol/ is literally the entire reason for the webrings existence as hundreds of hobbyist boards on 8chan were wiped out because of retards fed posting on 8glows /pol/. The webring exists specifically so that every board doesn't get daisy chained because one retard fed posts his shooting spree.

That was posted on facebook, not 8glow.
Replies: >>150
>>149
It was posted originally on faceberg. But it was also posted on 8glow. The point is that the webring came into existence so /pol/ fed posts don't impact other boards. Turns out no one on the webring especially gives a shit about /pol/ though so there isn't any site that hosts a /pol/ board. I think it's best practice to put as much distance as possible from the /pol/ branding. If you want a natsoc board there's already /fascist/. A board for current events is the only thing I think the webring needs, but I have no interest in listening to the edgy entry level political/economic opinions of teenagers and subversive kike glow niggers, which is all /pol/ ended up becoming.
Replies: >>151
>>150
My point in bringing that up is that we are always targets. Julay should have proven just how bad things really are.
Replies: >>152
>>151
It's not just about being a target for bad actors and feds. The very nature of the /pol/ atmosphere, rule set, and branding brings a flood of normalfags and glow niggers into a website. Even if it didn't get the site taken down it would have a noticeable impact on post quality. If you moderated it to be a natsoc board then it would be pointless since /fascist/ exists. So it would have to be moderated as a open discussion board, in which case non-stop bad actors would jump in to slide and shill day and day out.

I think variations of a news/current event themed board are a much better compromise.

I don't see how that wouldn't just devolve into /pol/ anyways
Replies: >>154
>>153
Not being /pol/ in name would probably help with the spirit of the board. Of course the nature of it would probably still be "right wing", but I remember the guy in charge of Julay's news board that also ran /fit/ had a pretty good system that mandated threads be structured properly and be about news events. Obviously you wouldn't be banning people for expressing their political opinions, but with a good BO and clear rules to push the board towards higher quality and more structured thread OP's you can steer a board in a much better direction without having to be super strict on the posts themselves.

I find the approach of being strict on thread quality but relaxed on post quality making the most sense for a news style board.

/n/ is good but won't it just become a board for linking kosher websites and youtube/bitchute videos?.

Also, don't make /pol/. They already have /fascist/ and that place is slowly becoming pro-pedophilia and pro-genocide.
Replies: >>157

>pro-pedophilia
Somehow I feel you're probably misrepresenting this stance. I doubt people on /fascist/ are outright arguing for sex with prepubescent children.
>pro-genocide
It's called /fascist/ dude.
>/n/ is good but won't it just become a board for linking kosher websites and youtube/bitchute videos?.
It would depend on the person running it. I figure standard practices would apply where you archive, fill the OP with as many relevant images and videos as possible, make multiple well formatted quotes about the topic/article/video, etc.

Last few days have been bizzare. I think some gang is doing this on purpose. I see an increase in "seethe, cope" and other cuckchan memes along with pedophilia.
They draw too much heat from their glow. They've already made enemies at other boards, which is how pretty much all popular /pol/ boards end up as.
Didn't want that to happen here.

Man I really wonder how I should reply to this question. I think you're setting the standards on moderation too high if you want mods that can deal with those situations.

Anon.cafe's decision to let in those boards was weird since it was around the same time they claimed to not want to let in boards that didn't vibe with their ethos. I don't have a problem with /fascist/ but I just find it a bit ironic. I've always been of the opinion that if people can't put in the bare minimum amount of effort to disguise their language so it doesn't come off as fed posting they should have their posts deleted.

It really isn't that difficult to advocate for your edgy fringe positions without writing like a total fucking glow nigger. But I have experienced people on /fascist/ and /k/ calling that "cucking". Usually those people out themselves as cuckchan niggers in the same breath though. They're the kind of niggercattle narcissists that have no respect for anyone and the communities they share a website with. Not that I think this behavior is unique to those political boards, but the BO's of those boards really need to clamp down on fed posting type behavior.
>Yes. Someone who has proper vision on how to run a news board and keep discussions civil can pull it off.
A news board would definitely need a BO that was a cut above the rest. It should not be created lightly and probably shouldn't be created at all as much as I might enjoy having one.
>>159
Tom on fatchan said to global report CP then delete it. Not sure how Sturgeon would want it dealt with. Perma bans are meaningless against someone confident and competent enough to be comfortable posting CP on a clearnet site, or any site. They're mostly just a gesture and a good way to shrink the pool of tor nodes available. But I assume it's probably expected that you perma either way, which is fine I guess all things considered.
>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?
This is a pretty context based question. I figure you're just expected to expand on your moderation style and get you writing a bit so one can gauge how retarded you might be.

I’ve seen those same types of posts with the same posting style. They are most certainly /cow/ niggers trying to false flag. The same kind was seen on julay/v/ soon after Tengu took over, and also on /geimu/ in a poor attempt to subvert. 
I think the webring should be ditched solely to get away from them. /cow/ is for some reason tenacious with their board and keep making new ones on the webring, so they arent going to go away. New users may be lost due to the lack of a webring tying IB’s together, but I think it may be worth it in the long run. I’ve scarcely met a more histrionic bunch of literally autistic faggots than /cow/, man.

I will manually replicate the current content of the old board and update it every time after I finish jerking off. 8chan has way too many boards unlike this place so it will catch more eyes. All hentai boards on webring now are either dead or filled with tranny shit, so I want to make a change.

That's it for webring.

All hentai boards have good activity because of their history. They're delisted because it's pedophilia in some countries. They wouldn't exist without loli porn. Why didn't your place pick up? That's what you should think about for now.

I don't think a news board that doesn't allow purely theoretical political discussion will work very well on a small board. And I don't think the news part is what most people wishing for a /pol/ are most interested in.
I think when /tech/ and /b/ are going to be added those will be enough enough for now. Political discussion can just be kept on /b/ as long as it doesn't produce enough threads to slide the rest of /b/. Same thing goes for anime and hentai. I'd really love to have some kind of /a/ or /jp/ but there so many alternatives already, so maybe just making a few threads on /b/ will suffice.
>>162

Glad it's becoming extremely obvious as they have done it so often already.

Precisely, permas are useless in cases with CP so I would expect a ban to be long enough to prevent reuse by the spammer while not condemning a tor node/vpn addresses. 2 weeks would be an acceptable length. You also need to explicitly delete the file.
>This is a pretty context based question. I figure you're just expected to expand on your moderation style and get you writing a bit so one can gauge how retarded you might be.
This guy gets it.

I'm going to call it closed at 8/21 at the latest. If I get enough good applications before then I will close it early and announce the new boards. Also, Applications can be submitted at any time outside of a round, they will just be reviewed from the start of the next round if selections have already been made. I don't plan on adding more than 3 boards per round.

>>163
You already have two dead boards on other sites and would be handing out permas for any breach of your rules, which are ambiguous. Your definition of  wholesome/ neutral is not defined in any way. I would expect you to at least list of some tags which would be banned. I'm going to have to politely decline this application for this round.

I've seen an idea at antares chan. They got a /v/ and a /misc/ for everything else. I think the site owner is ready to open new boards but they have to prove themselves, whatever that means. Place is quite dead though and most of activity is at /misc/.
Replies: >>181

Guess your application got rejected.

In case you don't know there's endchan that's both tor friendly and has clearnet access. If you don't care about webring or 8chan's legacy for new users you can use that. Outdated software though.

I think he required the topic to have an active enough thread, which seems like a little autistic way to put it but it's not a bad concept.
Haven't checked the site in a while, the .onion seems to be gone and I still haven't set up open dns, don't think it would play well with my VPN setup.
5 dead boards are harder to monitor than just one that is active, but not too fast. Going too much into the direction of /b/ for everything isn't good either though, if people get too used to that they will just post fucking everything on /b/ even when there's a dedicated board, like on kc which has a shitton of boards but two of them have all the activity. A fine line between chaos and boredom I guess. That would probably discourage people from using all of them.
And it might have positive effects not leaving /b/ to dedicated /b/tards.

Its pretty obvious that Sturgeon wants no punishment on the first guy, although the exact answer (Deleting the individual post or just ignoring it). And its pretty obvious what you should do in case of CP.

>This is a pretty context based question. I figure you're just expected to expand on your moderation style and get you writing a bit so one can gauge how retarded you might be.
Disagree.
Due to law, there are no moderation differences on how someone should deal with CP, you just Ban and Delete it on sight.
Meanwhile the first question is cute but not enough to gauge moderation differences and the repeated "this guy has done NOTHING ELSE wrong", "he's a REGULAR POSTER on your board", its pretty clear Sturgeon doesn't want a punishment placed on the person in question.
So no, this doesn't gauge your moderation style.

But whatever, I was gonna say "failing this is going to be impossible even if you're a rulecuck to the max" but >>163 just answered both questions with Permanent Ban, so I suppose there really are people who wouldn't get the hint.

There are plenty of reasons to despise 8moe but despite Acid being an insufferable faggot he's made it one of the most tor friendly imageboards available. Even more so than this place considering we don't even have an onion, though obviously that's on Tom to get working on it.

Well considering he already said that's what he's doing here >>176 I'm not sure what you're disagreeing with. But now we're exposing his trade retard check secrets.
>Due to law, there are no moderation differences on how someone should deal with CP, you just Ban and Delete it on sight.
That wasn't in response to the CP question. It was in response to the guy who broke a board rule question. Also there can be a difference in a BO's understanding of how IP hashes work and why perma bans ultimately serve no purpose, as you can also read in the same earlier post I linked you.
>Meanwhile the first question is cute but not enough to gauge moderation differences and the repeated "this guy has done NOTHING ELSE wrong", "he's a REGULAR POSTER on your board", its pretty clear Sturgeon doesn't want a punishment placed on the person in question.
He already said that he isn't fishing for any specific response. I don't know why you're assuming all this shit when he's already explained his logic.
They're lurking here.

Aside from asking others what boards they wan you should ask yourself what boards you want. I've seen multiple imageboards shut down because the admins get tired of babysitting boards they don't like for users they grew to hate. You're the admin of ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZchan, which means that you have to babysit every board on the site to make sure nothing horrible that could kill Z^3chan happens.
Regarding board suggestions, people ITT have mentioned boards like /film/, /tech/, /pol/, /n/ and /hh/, but if no real demand exists from them (aside from the few people suggesting them) they'll quickly become wastelands. Instead, you should add /b/ for now, see how things evolve in all boards, and then add more boards when there are enough people to sustain them (for example, making a porn/hentai board if/when porn becomes a big part of /b/ and /v/). This way you won't have boards that are dead most of the time, like how it happens on most imageboards with free board creation.

On an unrelated note, there's something on ZZZchan that increases my CPU usage in an estrange way that didn't happen on Zchan or any other imageboard (with the exception of PLW because their animated mascots were coded like ass).

>Aside from asking others what boards they wan you should ask yourself what boards you want. I've seen multiple imageboards shut down because the admins get tired of babysitting boards they don't like for users they grew to hate. 

I've already stated that I want a variety of boards with a few exceptions and a preference for non-porn focused boards early on. zzzchan is not meant to cater exclusively to my interests. The entire point of running this process is to encourage anons to step up and give being a BO a shot. I don't want to be the only one in charge of the majority of boards on the site/bullying pasta into helping me do it since that severely limits how many can be added as our attentions are divided more and more. 

>people ITT have mentioned boards like /film/, /tech/, /pol/, /n/ and /hh/, but if no real demand exists from them they'll quickly become wastelands
I completely agree and I'd like to see some of those. One of the key ways I'm gauging interest in a given board is whether or not anyone applies for it. If one anon is willing to step up and offer to manage a board I figure that board has a better shot than if I just create it myself. So far I have received one qualifying application and it's not for any of those boards. I may have to make /b/ myself at this rate.

>On an unrelated note, there's something on ZZZchan that increases my CPU usage in an estrange way that didn't happen on Zchan or any other imageboard
I've noticed this too and I think it's the live update function. I haven't been able to get it through the proxy so far and if I cant figure it out I'm just going to disable it. We will still have timed thread updates.

Cloudflare won't give second opinions and just kill this place. Those jobless faggots spend their whole life just shitposting.

You know what I hate the most about Tom and zchan admin? Both of them were overtly optimistic about their abilities, both of them shut their sites down without sufficient prior notice, and kept silent as if nothing has ever happened afterwards. No update, no apology, just pretend like nothing has ever happened. If you couldn't even bother with maintaining a site, then don't do it in the first place. I am 100% confident that this retard here will bounce in 2 weeks, making the same mistakes as the other two.

You never read the meta threads on fat. It was obviously going to get shut down, he didn't want to deal with shit like what was brought with /v/. If you had LURKED MOAR maybe you would have known that. It was set up so he could run a site running his software and get direct feedback in the process, while also gaining first hand experience running the software. He opened it up out of the kindness of his heart, not to be a bastion of security. Cut your head off then you're own.

Tom bullshitted about being able to handle whatever was thrown at the site, sure. But you keep pretending to be retarded and conflating sturgeon with the previous guy running zchan. Sturgeon was more than communicative after zchan went down with his plans to bring up a new site, and then proceeded to follow through. What do you want people who weren't responsible for the shutdown of old zchan to apologize for? You can go try to find the unknown nameless admin of old zchan yourself and beg him to atone for his sins I guess.

Also Tom was not "silent" after fatchan's shut down. He responds to emails and even posts here. He still engages with the community and helps people running instances of his site. I feel like you're being as uncharitable as possible with your expectations of people running imageboards as a hobby out of pocket.

I'm not sure what you're playing at here bud.

Sure, I'll concede that. Toward the end there he was retarded with his representation of himself or rather with his willingness to deal with all of the shit. These assurances seemed to go against what he was saying earlier - being a guy that works freelance I guess who just wanted to run a site, not necessarily trying to make a statement or prove a point. I think he got in over his head at the end there but idk I'm just a fucking retard who watches doers do shit.

Kind of a counter-intuitive question. Should make sure each BO understand how to configure jschan's board PPH captcha triggers instead of just asking what they might do after the fact. There's no reason a boards catalog should get raped if the board is configured properly.

To apply for a board, you must submit your answers to the following questions: 

1. What will the focus of your board be?

/co/. The focus will comics and cartoons. 

2. What will the rules be?

No threads made about anything besides comics, cartoons, and news and figures related to both topics. No porn. 

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?

Give them a warning and if they break the same rule again, ban them for 2 days. 

    B. A spammer posts CP. What do you do?

First, delete all the posts and permaban the poster IPs. Then, notify admin.

C. A spammer has slid your catalog and all unpinned threads are gone. What do you do?

Delete all threads and sticky an explanation. 

4. What time range(s) would you normally be able to keep an eye on the board?

9am to 1pm EST.

5. If your board becomes active enough, do you agree to look for one or more vol(s) to help you? 

Yes.

Do you know anyone already?

No.

6. Why do you want to be a moderator for this board?

There are no /co/ boards at all on the webring as far as I know. Certainly not any active ones.

I was just thinking about how much I wanted there to be a /co/ on the webring to share story times and good art with.  The downfall of old /co/ boards was the overlap between the userbase and tumblr/4chan/general leftist leanings; there are some old caps I was rereading recently, and people in them actually say things like "I wouldn't have a problem with the gay characters if they were written well."  It's surreal to realize that there were large populations of people like that on old 8chan only a few years ago.

I don't mind you posting your application here but please send me an email as well, I need some sort of concrete way to contact every BO.



 I have also been remiss in outlining a few things regarding the moderation tools of the site, and how I've decided I want certain scenarios handled.

Regarding the spam/sliding scenrio, All boards have whats called a post per hour and thread per hour trigger that can be set differently. You can set behavior for when each trigger is hit, up to locking the board if desired. 

TO HANDLE ANYTHING ON THE SAME LEVEL OF CP 
This should be handled in a couple of steps, and will allow me to take the ip of a given spammer and complain to whatever vpn they are using. Once tor is working SOON  you can simply purge anything posted via tor.
1. Delete the files but not the posts.
2. Take a screencap/record the ip hashes of the offending posts and send them to me. A picture is strongly preferred
3. Delete all but one/a handful of the posts and global report the remaining ones with a note to me so that I can get the actual IP behind the post and act accordingly.

And as always, if shit is getting bad feel free to email me. It's been very calm since changing the captcha but I'd encourage all BO's at least to get on keybase and set up a dm with me as that is the fastest way to get a hold of me in an emergency. You can find me on keybase as sturgeonfish. There's also minds but that's only going to be used for public announcements outside of the site: https://www.minds.com/sturgeonfish/ .

It isn't,but everyone on the webring knows how to access it and fitting the general umbrella of "former 8chan demographic", it might as well be.

I remember a few people asking for a /co/ board on /tg/ but never doing anything about it, which I thought was interesting. Other than /tg/'s meta thread(which refuses to use 8moe), I know Frank left multiple (USER WAS BANNED BY THIS POST) warnings in certain pro-comicsgate posts, even if they weren't bad or didn't otherwise break the rules, so I assume he was also running people he didn't like out of the board. 
So that's why I think there has to be a userbase somewhere.
