Requesting Boards Anonymous Board owner 09/01/2019 (Sun) 02:54:24 No.3 [Reply] [Last]
Self-service board creation is disabled. If you'd like to run a board on anon.cafe, please create an account and then post in this thread with: >The username you created >Board URL (e.g. /meta/) >Board name >Board topic >Would you like the board marked SFW (i.e. no explicit or other adult-only content)? Please review the Global Rules before you request a board. Please also be certain that you are willing to carry out the duties of a board owner. Boards whose owners do not log in for more than two weeks will be marked inactive and put up for claim. Boards that remain dead for an extended period may be deleted if resources need to be freed. We don't grant boards to anyone who asks. Broadly, we'll consider boards that aren't duplicated elsewhere on the webring but we weigh up a variety of factors. Being comfy is a plus! But, in the end it comes down to our private decision. Please specify if you are requesting a board for use as a "bunker", which is a board that will remain inactive and only be used in case your main board hosted elsewhere becomes unavailable. We request that bunker boards remain delisted from the board list and top boards so that we do not pollute the webring with many inactive duplicates of boards. To delist your board, go to Board Management > Settings, check the "Don't index on top boards and board list" box, and click Save. Delisted boards can still be read and posted on, so you can still distribute your new bunker's address to your anons. If your main board becomes inaccessible or you want to turn your bunker into your main board, feel free to relist it by unchecking the aforementioned "Don't index on top boards and board list" box and clicking Save. Please note that because delisted boards can still be posted on, their owners are still expected to log in regularly and clear them of spam or rule-breaking content and that delisted boards whose owners do not log in for some time will still go up for claim as normal. If you keep your bunker clear of spam and rule-breaking content, it will remain unlocked so that posts can be made at any time. If spam or rule-breaking content accumulates, the board will be administratively locked and will only be unlocked by request. By the time we see an unlock request and act on it, your anons may already have been unable to use the bunker for some time. A tidy bunker is a ready bunker.

Please remove 8chan.moe from your webring following list. Blacklist optional. Anonymous 05/12/2021 (Wed) 05:13:35 No.14384 [Reply] [Last]
As it stands, anon.cafe is the only site in the webring that is following 8chan.moe. Other sites have blacklisted the site in history for numerous reasons. This site is currently the only site in the entire webring that is following 8chan.moe. I'm here to convince you why you should stop doing that. 8chan.moe has been extremely unpopular amongst anons across the entire webring for numerous reasons. It's getting to a point that it is impossible to ignore the complaints. Please hear me out entirely. First is the fact that after many months and several lies, they have absolutely no interest in conforming to webring standards. They are one of the only sites in the webring that has failed to conform to fair practice in the webring by failing to fully implement the webring plugin. Very few sites have failed to do this, and the other sites are for the most part rather small. 8chan.moe however, is the largest site in the webring currently with the most activity, and they have failed to implement the webring after several months of being asked to. They have no interest in joining the webring properly. If you don't believe me and need proof, please read this thread: https://8chan.moe/site/res/1880.html Several months ago you blacklisted 8chan.moe from your site because they failed to properly implement the webring. They still haven't committed to fully and properly implementing the webring. When people complain, they ignore it. They have never been interested in properly implementing the webring. All they care about is that people from the webring get advertised to visit 8chan.moe and they have never had the good faith to enable the webring GUI on their site. It has been several months and they have not fixed it. They won't even respond to it anymore. The second biggest complaint is that they harbor Mark. Mark is known for bringing the press and other undesirables to anything he inhabits. The fear is that this could eventually infect the rest of the webring. However, without proper integration to the rest of the webring, this is honestly unlikely, but it is still a complaint that is raised. The third and most recent complaint is that 8chan.moe has begun to allow content that is not legal in the United States and is very likely not legal elsewhere. The United States is usually considered the pinnacle of free speech and even their limitations, such as the DOST test, are echoed around the rest of the world. This is what caused 8chan to be delisted on the only other site they were listed in the webring. Pic related. The fourth and final reason is just plainly that you cannot trust the word of Acid. He has made so many numerous promises to correctly implement the webring and even at the beginning he started the webring with some "peering agreement" thing which backfired at him. He decided to reverse that decision as soon as he became bombarded with webring users who complained at him. However, due to a lack of complaints about his extremely bad-faith nature and his flat-out lies about his intentions, his site has been allowed to be included in a substantial part of the webring for months now. It's time to remove his site from the webring and stop trusting him. My hope is that you will remove him from your following list which will remove him from the webring. I hope nobody in the future is ever suckered into adding back 8chan.moe. Thank you for reading this post.

>>14524 I don't know that anyone ever thought anything besides what I thought in 2014. That nigger wasn't doing anything with the site himself, so therefore it was great. It should have continued indefinitely tbh. It was a place of pure anonymity and freedom. If you were enough of a cunt, other anons would crack down on you (muh cp laws n' sheeit). I definitely would go even further than free speech though. I think offended niggers should be slowly tortured to death and forcefed whatever the fuck they don't like along with all moralfags in the bog--where they belong. <waaaah content I don't like Tough shit, newfags.
>>14737 >posting the cuck faggot version
>>14919 >personal semantics here Unless you were raised in a retard town on top of a sad mountain, words usually have similar meanings and definitions between the majority of people. Stop trying to cotton up posts, anons know how to use words.
>>14988 As the posts show, we have a different definition of 'lament'. Mine is the same as the first 2 dictionaries I just checked. For the other anon is not, and I don't care, we can agree to disagree. If you never noticed that most discussions end up in semantics (or they stop earlier), you must be new to the internet. Thanks for the insults, BTW.
>>14987 >posting the schizo version (You) aren't purging anyone out of an hobby. This goes double for anything that can be done by yourself or with small groups of friends, the community at large is powerless there.

leftypol wants to join the webring. Anonymous 06/11/2021 (Fri) 05:54:30 No.14926 [Reply]
Hello, anons. Leftypol is considering joining the webring. I am curious to get a little feed back from some of the community here about the situation and what everyone thinks about it? Obviously they are leftists, however, they are a rather large board in comparison to the other boards that are floating around the net and I am curious as to everyones opinion here is on this.

>>14926 They will cause problems, whether it be through drama or subversion of other boards. /pol/acks shitting up discussion is tiring, but at the very least, right-wing political boards tend to shut up and stay out of the way more often than not. It will be more trouble than it's worth.
>>14975 >make all left leaning topics a bannable offense on non political boards That seems a bit extreme, assuming assuming all political based topics aren't also banned.
>>14968 How did you miss the whole Qtard drama? Imageboard culture is dead and buried among newcomers.
>>14968 >threads and replies with images VS >threads and replies with images Wow!
We will not be federating with the site in question at this time.

Getting more people on anon.cafe Anonymous 02/26/2020 (Wed) 14:36:33 No.10445 [Reply] [Last]
>20 unique users have posted in the past 24 hours. Seriously, this place needs some more users. It's painfully slow. Other major sites on the webring get several hundred easily. What can we do about this? We have the boards. We have the content. What are we missing?

>>13580 Wasn't always like this, some bad agents appeared in the staff (or removed their masks) and shit happened. In my opinion it was more around a decent group of anons in a site with some overly lenient BOs and careless administration; everything went good because no pressure happened but when things like subversive staffers (shitposters with a badge) bailing janitors (due to staff's irregular rulings) raid-tier dumbfag migrations (mark /v/, kiwis) and technical problems happened everything went to the gutter because they simply didn't know how to deal with it and had no consistency between their own ideologies. When they took proper measures it was way too late and they still have that paranoid behavior even when the site is almost vacated, there's nobody to inspect upon other than the few who stuck by your side.
>>13515 All of that applies to imageboards aswell.
>>13674 >Getting warned for bumping an old thread >Easy to get banned by an angry mod Go away, Mark
>>13443 >Im pretty sure thats run by acidman. Nah, they're run by the remnants of Fatchan's staff after Tom pussed out from Esther's deplatforming.

Deleting Boards Anonymous Board owner 05/02/2020 (Sat) 09:49:50 No.10741 [Reply]
This thread is for boards that are going to be deleted. All boards up for deletion will be given a minimum of seven days notification before it happens to allow them to be evacuated. It's not fun to cull boards, but it is necessary for the health of Anon.cafe and the health of the webring. There are no set criteria for deletion, but factors that make a board more likely to be deleted include long inactivity (if that board is not a bunker) with no signs of revival, a long-absent owner (if that board is not a bunker), very low post count/indications of stillbirth, and other factors that indicate the board has likely calcified and is unlikely to revive. Well-maintained, unindexed bunkers will not be deleted unless their community appears to have disappeared entirely. As of now - Saturday May 02, 2020 at 0935 - the following boards have been selected for deletion: >>>/girltalk/ >>>/lovelive/ >>>/mh/ >>>/psyid/ >>>/int/ >>>/nofap/ Boards at risk of being considered stillborn include: >>>/hentaiclub/ Boards that have had no activity but are presently exempt from being considered stillborn because of Julay.world's circumstances include: >>>/icup/

>>10741 Sometimes you must cut off a limb to save the rest of the body. It's understandable, although I'm sad to see that /int/ failed.
>>10741 I'm not sure about /mh/, it seems that's still a relatively new board and the BO has put at least some effort into it.
>>10743 This is true but it seems they've flamed out. Military history seems like it's already covered by /k/, too.
will there be any more?
