The End of Jul(a)y Robi Board owner 04/28/2020 (Tue) 10:45:47 ID: 59c7b4 No.8102
The End of Julay I've decided that I will be shutting down JulayWorld in a few months. Thanks to everyone that sticked around. Rationale In these past 9 months, I've come to realize that the idea of a centralized imageboard with open/semi-open board creation is flawed in the current year. In my experience, entralization causes three main problems when it comes to imageboards: a) Big responsibility, b) Disinterest in the imageboard, c) Single point of failure. Running an imageboard with a lot of boards is a risky endeavor with a big responsibility. Until now, I've been fine with running it, but as of recently, more and more threats have showed up for Julay, and I don't want the management of Julay to take over my life like it did for Freddit. I honestly have a lot of IRL things to do, and everytime something happens on Julay I have to drop everything I'm currently doing and work on fixing whatever happened, which (in the case of stuff like takedowns) costs both serious amounts of time and also money. In the past few months, I've felt that I've become more and more distant to Julay. The main reason is because I don't use most of the boards that are on Julay. I don't want to manage boards that I don't personally have any interest in, and so their moderation woes have become more and more of a burden as time went on, and at this point I don't want it to go on like this. I'm sorry to disappoint people, but I'm not going to become Moot 3.0 and devote my life to Julay. It also worries me that there is only a single location for most of the boards in the webring. The entire point of the webring was to have many boards each catering to their own community and their own related boards so a board going down wouldn't affect the others and the other boards could provide a shelter temporarily if necessary. However, human nature states that people will always flock to the lowest barrier to entry. It is much easier to create a board on an existing imageboard than it is to start a new one for yourself. Therefore, Julay has overgrown to almost 100 boards, which is a shame and something I should've prevented early on. However, at the time (August-October 2019) there were still many communities left without a home as 8chan died and left behind a void that has been unfilled since (8kun is not, and will never be 8chan), and so I've provided board creation for boards that didn't have anywhere to go. However, since then a lot of dust has settled and I think it's time for people to slowly expand out and fulfill the webring's original purpose. The Final Day JulayWorld will shut down on 2020-07-27, to both coincide with Julay and because that's the day that Garfield stole the pipe. What will happen to everyone else? I am going to be working hard to make an easy to understand guide for people to set up their own imageboards within the next few days. I will try to make it as retard-friendly as possible, and I will try to provide help to people who have trouble setting it up. Additionally, I've gotten back to working on Final Solution day and night. Final Solution (when completed) will create an imageboard mesh, which should (hopefully) eventually replace the current webring system and be more resilient than the webring. What about the donations? Many thanks to the handful of people that have donated to Julay to keep it alive for so long. I currently have enough in the Bitcoin wallet to cover us until the final day, and I don't need any more donations. I will be removing the donations page and replace it with a similar message. I will personally cover any additional costs that expand beyond donations. What happens if the site goes down before that? I will try my best to keep the site up until the final day, but if something so catastrophic happens that the imageboard simply can't continue, that'd be the end of that. Thanks for flying Julay. May the chaos cat keep away from your pipe in your future endeavors.

Can't say I didn't see it coming with how harder to reach you were over the last few months. Still I guess 90 months is a generous head start to find alternatives. I wonder what the main boards will do.
>>8102 Thank you, robi. How many days left on the deal btw?
>>8104 I can now go back to my normal life of coding shitty PHP webapps. I've moved onto routing and MVC in PHP with OOP. It's going alright. Rewrote the entire inventory system code with a secret group-like feature called pods. It's basically a feature that allows a user to have its own private inventory.
Couldn't you just give it to someone else?
Just pass the torch to someone else, jesus.

>I've felt that I've become more and more distant to Julay. The main reason is because I don't use most of the boards that are on Julay. I don't want to manage boards that I don't personally have any interest in I've wanted to make an imageboard for a while now, but my plan was to only have boards that I personally care about. I'd let people make boards but only if it's something I find interesting and they run it in a way that I'm not opposed to. I think the webring is a place where that should be the normal. If people want a board that none of the websites want, then those users should look into hosting it themselves. >I am going to be working hard to make an easy to understand guide for people to set up their own imageboards Maybe you can also talk to Fatchan admin and include a guide for setting up jschan.
>>8112 No, use my install script. I'll publish it.
>this thread >on the same fucking day Namecheap fucked over /delicious/ This day keeps getting worse and worse. I already had to download Tor because of this. Let's hope my clan migrates to 9chan when it resurface. >>8108 >giving ownership would defeat the purpose of shutting down julayworld
>>8108 That would defeat the entire point of why I'm shutting down Julay. I want communities to make their own imageboards so that one community going down wouldn't affect others and other communities can provide a bunker while that community regroups. That is the kind of resilience that I'm talking about.
>>8114 >Namecheap fucked over /delicious/ based namecheap clearing out the pedophiles.
>>8116 >Hey, Robi here. You've probably heard of a certain "Eshter" figure going around and reporting webring sites (and some non-webring ones) as of late. Apparently, Namecheap people are faggots and decided that completely fictional drawings of children are actual child pornography, despite the law stating otherwise. Well, I did file a CP report to Namecheap for that file that robi deleted in IRC (was on a dead board).
>>8117 I filed it in Robi's name too
>>8117 I'm glad that you managed to find the child porn you planted from your own stash. Must have been hard to find.
>>8119 I didn't post it, idiot. It was from 2019 or something.

I'm not going to let you derail this one, dolphin
>>8122 The hell got deleted?
>>8115 are you going to allow people to archive /delicious/ before you shut down the board? also don't give us this "oh i dont want it to take over my life" bullshit, you make this announcement on the same day you (((coincidentally))) shut down /delicious/ due to a mysterious report, you probably have a gun aimed at the back of your head right now, i've already heard this song played before.
>>8125 I've been considering it for some time and the Namecheap deal finally got me to finalize my decision. /delicious/ is still accessible through Tor, and once we switch domain providers it will be active again on clearnet.
>>8125 > you probably have a gun aimed at the back of your head right now holy shit this is your brain on CP. Yeah the feds are getting him to shut down the pedophile board.
>too lazy to do AHG that you'd rather fucking kill the site Wow.
>>8115 But that's fucking stupid. You're the one who can't for one reason or another take care of Julay anymore. I may have a double digit IQ, but how is this supposed to make "us" more resilient if all it does is divide us? It's already a damn mess trying to find someone to talk to spread over 3 imageboards right now. >You get an imageboard! And YOU get an imageboard! And YOU get an imageboard! hooray we're all sitting in our own private little imageboards feeling sad for ourselves like that kid from Ventrillo Harassment.
>>8129 Because it forces people to get off their ass and actually put in the work to maintain their own community, instead of everyone being focused on one place. The centralized system is prone to failure. If someone else makes a big imageboard on the webring (which I don't recommend), you can go there too.

That's nice mess right here. Thankfully, 90 days is enough of time to move somewhere else without major problems.

I'm sad to see this happen because now whose frontend and LynxChan plugins will I ride the coat-tails of but I understand everything you've said because it's true. >I am going to be working hard to make an easy to understand guide for people to set up their own imageboards within the next few days. I have an idempotent Ansible playbook that sets up and maintains a LynxChan 2.3.7 board and all its dependencies from scratch on a CentOS 7 server. I use it in production and for our test instance. It's written to be usable with sensible defaults in place and the ability to change anything with over-ridden group variables. Would it help your efforts if I open-sourced it?
>>8138 you should google what centralized means.
>>8140 google my asshole, I know what it means

Lemme just predict what's going to happen in the next year. >single board sites on the rise >each banning anything outside of their interest to be safe >pedo/loli content will keep getting attacked >more people can afford to look away cause its not their problem >pedo/loli content eventually gets banned from being listed on the webring >people get used to not being able to post that content on boards anymore, period >most /a/ style boards will shut down, their users move to the one that bans anything loli/pedo related and finally >people asking themselves why they left 8kunt in the first place Might take two years, it's hard to tell right now. But that's what's going to happen sooner or later.
I've been here for under two months because I didn't want to move on from 8/v/. I didn't realize there were 100 or more boards. It amazes me how fast and stable everything is. Thank you for your efforts and giving a heads up well in advance.
>>8130 You realize that nobody's going to visit a site with three non-legacy boards on it, right Robi? That's just not how anons work. I'm sure Jim is cracking open a Monster Ultra Zero right now to celebrate his deplatforming scheme working though so good job on that.

>>8143 >brain dead pedophile conflates pic related with the child pornography found on /delicious/ yeah no.
>>8139 It would help on the technical side, but my main target is the average tech illiterate BO who wants to run an imageboard for his board and maybe a couple others. Open-sourcing it would be really helpful if I could somehow turn it into a one-click/command tool. >>8143 The webring wouldn't have to censor anything because the webring is nothing more than a list of links, it doesn't host the actual content on the imageboard that has the addon installed. If you 'really want to have an imageboard for your lolicon, you should probably do it over Tor in the first place to avoid a party van. >>8144 I won't be going away forever. >>8145 They better fucking start then. Anons have become too cozy and fine with the status quo. People should start exploring more instead of sitting on a single imageboard, or go back to the pig pen.
>>8146 Sup "Esther"
>>8148 Hello pedophile
>>8149 >everyone who disagrees with me is a pedophile back to kiwifarms retard
>>8147 >anons have become too comfortable with the status quo I wholeheartedly agree, but just shutting the site down cold has a high chance of killing smaller communities because nobody who has the time and money to host them gives a shit. At least with Julay and the webring being so big there's a chance of someone making a rapefugee camp for anons without a hostfag, but with the luxury of being able to turn people away for being too gay or not having enough time to moderate them.
>>8102 Why? It seems like it was a forced decision. >>8127 >Hurr durr loli is CP lol retard >>8136 That seems likely to me. >8kunt cucks out and bans loli. >a week later /delicious, haven for loli is taken down. >same day the admin is going to shut down the site because "reasons". >Totally not a way to scatter us or force us to those shitty 8kunt imageboards

>>8154 >>8155 Jim from 8ch? I once heard he was a LEA accomplice.
>>8153 >>8154 Either that or a group on Twitter/Reddit. >>8156 If you actually read the message, it said it'll be back online by the end of the weekend. How excatly are you planning on keeping stuff that isn't child porn (aka drawn stuff) offline forever?
>>8154 Is it really him? >>8147 >People should start exploring more instead of sitting on a single imageboard, or go back to the pig pen. True, I hope more people will visit /otter/.
>>8154 Fuck that nigger shill jew.
>>8153 Some crazy cat-lady from kiwifarms, with complete hateboner for imageboards.
>>8145 >just shutting the site down cold has a high chance of killing smaller communities because nobody who has the time and money to host them gives a shit And that's why I'm not shutting it down cold. I've given 3 months to everyone which should be more than enough time. >a chance of someone making a rapefugee camp for anons without a hostfag I really hope the "big imageboard" thing doesn't happen again. Spread out. Please, spread out. You will lose in the long-term if you don't. >but with the luxury of being able to turn people away for being too gay or not having enough time to moderate them. Probably should've been my strategy but alas.
>>8146 Keep denying it like you've done for the past 20 years. Just do me a favor and familiarize yourself with tor, alright? >>8143 >nothing more than a list of links My point. People will get attacked for hosting links to pedo/loli boards, in addition to the fact that fewer people even capable of setting up will care to do so. You think anon is so principled that he will choose to move their own boards over removing a link on the webring? Nah man, too optimistic. The most those people will be able to hope for is quiet solidarity. It's not pretty, but it's more probably than everything working out just fine.
>>8162 If you spread too much it's just going to die a slow death. Not survive.
>>8163 meant for >>8162
>>8162 Yeah any site with more than maybe 20 boards is a disaster waiting to happen. What I'm hoping for is something like ye olde 4chan where anons can actually collaborate and shitpost together again, just with somewhere to run when the Gestapo show up.

>>8167 That's not how it works.
This sucks. Fuck.
On that note, can anyone provide me with an updated list of all the small, barely active imageboards still standing and even unlinked from other major sites? I would really try and form a bigger connection with the niche ones.
>>8168 I don't mean it in the practical sense, I mean in the way of how Julay was the gateway to the webring proper. I concur that we went overboard with boards, hence why I am suggesting we cut our less popular ones just to salvage it.
>>8170 >barely active imageboards still standing and even unlinked from other major sites Most people don't realize this but there's literally hundreds of imageboards out there.
>>8171 >Julay was the gateway to the webring proper. But that's a bad thing, anon. It's why the other sites are getting infested with cuckchanners, meguca schizos and /v/. Without fuck-you gates to keep the trash away communities break down.

Man this fucking sucks. I understand why you've come to this decision, but fuck, I'd really grown attached to this place. This is gonna be a big blow to the webring, and possibly to many of the boards that migrated here as well. Thank you for hosting us up until now, this place was here when we needed it and I'm extremely grateful for that, just having somewhere to call "home" for the last 8 months has been a godsend. I'm just fucking devastated to see it come to an end like this, especially while the whole webring is under attack from all angles. I want to believe we can survive it but it's really not looking good right now. Fuck. >>8167 >Can't you just remove board creation and cull the inactive boards? >Will you also set up a guide for how to integrate all future IBs onto the webring? Without Julay, the webring ceases as well. Seconding these sentiments.
>>8178 Maybe Robi can work out an import tool so anons can save their boards?
>>8162 To be a pedantic faggot Days left is should be 88/89 due to 2020-04-28 - 2020-07-27. May you constantly have the pleasure of having a high quality work environment (mainly coworkers and such). >>8170 Technically speaking the bottom half or so of https://julay.world/boards.js could count seeing as the are seemingly on different domains entirely.
>>8179 You mean like HTTrack?
I at least hope that the /delicious/ board gets some good sucessors. If there are any good ones, let me know ASAP
>>8179 I wonder if there could be an efficient way of migrating boards between webring sites.
>>8181 No, not like HTTrack, you dip.
>>8179 Oh yeah, I definitely want to write a tool like that. There's already https://gitgud.io/rb/MultiScraper but it doesn't support anything except Vichan-to-Lynxchan yet, I want to expand it before Julay closes so I can help BOs with importing boards to their own imageboards.
>>8174 I'm probably too dumb and didn't understand what you meant. I'm just saying to move to another IB while we wait for more IBs to join the 'ring, at which point individual IB admins should cull their own inactive bunkers just to redirect people to niche websites that would actually take them. Am I saying something dumb here? >>8180 >Technically speaking the bottom half or so of https://julay.world/boards.js could count seeing as the are seemingly on different domains entirely. Exactly my point. Robi, if you don't like hosting an IB and don't want the hassle of doing so, it's totally understandable. But you could still eliminate like 50% of the boards here, which are mostly inactive pieces of junk anyhow, and keep whoever was active posting. Maybe get a few more global mods and force even smaller boards to have at least two active mods. There's plenty of solutions that don't imply destroying the place.
>>8183 Lynxchan to Lynxchan should be possible since it's almost all JSON on the back end, and a vichan to Lynxchan converter already exists (but requires SQL access to the old site) but putting anything into vichan is insanity, from what I know the data model looks like a dog chewed on it. Some autistic hero could maybe do it but you're better off just getting away from vichan.
>>8186 Those are the webring boards. Also, as I've explained in >>8115, that would the defeat the point of me shutting down Julay.
>>8138 >we have 3,5 videogame boards on Julay alone and you have the audacity to tell me it's centralized? Nigga you retarded.
>>8187 See >>8185 . If people could help with expanding this code, it would be great.
>>8185 >Allowing BO to export his board and save it locally >Allowing BO import his board to any imageboard, letting him host copies of it wherever he wants I support this.
>>8187 I'll do it tomorrow. I'm familiar with vichan's DB schema.
>>8190 Oy vey I am very lazy
>>8102 Fair. This shouldn't affect anyone else in the webring right?
>>8194 Oh, it certainly will.
>>8194 Other than the spore-nuke effect of big board like /k/ going up, no. The webring has no single point of failure, FBI-kun.
>>8192 If you can provide a way for Lynxchan to Vichan you'd be my personal hero.
>>8183 >efficient way Impossible because different databases are completely different. You can create a porting script though, but it can't be easy. I think someone in fatchan was working on something like this a long time ago. https://fatchan.org/tech/thread/76.html I haven't looked into it though so I don't know if it's truly relevant.

>>8186 > I'm just saying to move to another IB while we wait for more IBs to join the 'ring This is dumb, because you can just create your own imageboard and have it join the ring, and 3 months of warning is far more than generous. Also, the idea of bunkers makes no sense for most communities here: there's little to no OC to preserve, to put it bluntly, and archiving every single post goes against the whole point of imageboards.
>>8201 Lynxchan may be a lot more snappy to use, but it falls short in many other areas like basic usability features, but most of all moderation tools. Also, I've Lynxchan is objectively worse looking than any other imageboard that currently exists.

You plug in some values to a config override file, point it at an SSH-accessible server, and a little while later you have a working LynxChan instance. If you want to change anything, you update only what you want changed, re-run it, and it only changes what needs to be changed, then handles service restarts and so on. I'll need to separate it out from some other things first, but I'll see what I can do. You already have a plan you're executing so this won't affect that.
Good on you, dude. I have a newfound respect that I didn't have previously. Are you going to keep /cow/ running since that was the original point of Julay?
>>8204 >next few weeks *hours, rather.
>>8167 >Can't you just remove board creation and cull the inactive boards? Fuck that he should go further. Robi here's what you do, go into the boards, Ctrl+A, hold shift and deselect /cow/, then press delete. Done, problem solved. Instead of taking out the entire site, just pare it back to what it was meant to be, just have /cow/ as you intended at the start.
>>8220 agreed. I can understand harboring the other boards for a *short time* but after a month they should've been told to fuck off to greener pastures.
>>8220 Actually, why not do this, Robi? You get everything you want out of it. Honestly not doing this makes it seem like you have a gun to your head.
Board Owner, would you cede/sell the site to someone willing to continue the work you've been doing? Or have you decided that it's too personal and shutting it down is the only acceptable path for it without you in charge? Thank you for your work.

>>8102 Nice excuse for shifting responsibility you faggot. The idea of a completely decentralized webring is as utopic as communism working. The webring is already as decentralized as you can get. And don't act like julay is bigger than it is, there are like 7 active boards, all the rest are just 10 post abandoned emergency bunkers made immediately after the 8ch fallout. Delete all those and don't accept any new boards requests, you'll end up with 10 boards on julay. The rest can be made on either new sites on existing webring nodes. Done, problem fucking solved and I don't even get to be paid for it. >In the past few months, I've felt that I've become more and more distant to Julay Let me play the world's smallest violin.

You're supposed to assign mods and have them fuck off to do everything themselves. If you don't have someone willing to manage a board by himself, you don't make that board.

FUCK I just started working on a new imageboard system that's meant to be detachable from the web and easy to set up a server for. Should've started a while ago. I wonder if I could do it in 3 months if I worked on it all day every day.
>>8226 he used to be doing /v/ but it looks like he got someone for that who then dropped out then got someone else, however that's the only thing I know of.
>>8224 Can't blame him for buckling under the pressure. Who wants to get associate with hosting loli? There's a difference between making a haven for a community that has been excised, and being willing to fight for it at risk of having it affect your personal life. I think most people trying to run these bunkers are perfectly willing to do the first, but when it comes to the second, things understandably fall apart.
>>8204 >Expect fatchan and anon.cafe to be utterly swamped by refugees in the next few weeks Those sites are cuckchan rapefugess dogshit anyway, they would only benefit from julay patricians going there.
>>8227 Do it on your time, it's best if it's well done than if it's a shitty service everyone forgets about in a week. >>8204 We already alerted the fatchan head honcho, he'll only take a fixed amount of boards and will take careful consideration on what to keep to avoid the same kind of bloat Robi had. To be honest, I think it's good like that.
>>8227 It's do-able at the very least
>>8231 Good, I hope the anon.cafe guys follow suit.
>>8231 >mark will take boards >weeks after getting onto the webring and why do you trust him to have not set all this motion you cuck
I guess it was better than nothing, but I would lie if I said I would miss this imageboard for any other reason other than the fact there aren't any better alternatives around. I would likely fuck off somewhere else, when 8chan shutdown, if it wasn't for the fact that /cow/ bunkered down here, and it looks like it was a mistake, since not a single good thread has been made there since At the very least, if nothing else, julay will be remembered for the great guthrum spergout late last year. It was glorious, here are some highlights, if you missed it Other than that, I dunno what else to say. I noticed the site has been becoming filled with more and more cuckchan crossposters, altho I guess I don't know for sure if they're from 4chan, either way, quality of threads has been going downhill regardless due to newfaggotry, and I guess if nothing will be done about that, going out while there is still some shreds of dignity left in the imageboard, and it's "culture", for the lack of a better word, is much better than letting it end up as some shambling corpse that 4chan was, or even worse, a boomer filled honeypot like 8kun was designed to be. >>8125 What happened to /delicious/? I know the administration on here has been cucked for a while, one mod, for example, banned people for posting loli on /b/, of all places, but I haven't been keeping up on the current of that specific tranny, moralfag cabal, I assume they're shutting down the board because loli = CP and we're good goys, correct?
>>8235 Take your meds.
>>8138 All 100+ boards on julay have one point of failure. If the site itself goes down, everything is gone.
9chan is unironically better anyway tbh. t. Jerks off to children
>>8147 >If you 'really want to have an imageboard for your lolicon, you should probably do it over Tor in the first place to avoid a party van. NAME ME ALL THE FUCKING USA CASES OF SOMEONE BEING PROSECUTED FOR LOLI AND LOLI ALONE I'd bet you there's or two at most with special circumstances. NO WEBSITE HAS EVER GOTTEN IN LEGAL TROUBLE FOR LOLI In fact, the vast majority of cases involving 18 U.S. Code § 1466A involve nothing but CP being charged twice under two different laws.
>>8239 And I'd add, the only trouble loli has ever brought a USA site is deplatforming by services that found it icky.
>>8234 what are you talking about, Mark's not on the webring. Fuck Mark.

>>8245 looks like I'm the cuck now...
>>8243 Ah, I get what you wanted to say. No, both /animu/ and fatchan offered Mark a /v/ bunker cause they knew he would have told all the /v/ users looking for a new home. The absolute waste of space that he is, he deleted one and abandoned the other the moment his fuckbuddy Acidman told him he could have an entire imageboard all to himself, and since he's a greedy jew did so. When he realized he had to wait a few weeks, he begged fatchan to have him back and they just told him to fuck off and started advertising their /v/ to 8kun on their own. Now the kike is trying to shill his own stupid IB by having his friends sticky it on the /v/ front page.
>>8243 No He had /v/ had at one point though, but sperged out and deleted it like the crybaby kike he is. He's currently on 8chan.moe with Acidkike

Just to be clear, I will be doing the following: 1. Helping out any anons that want to join the webring 2. Helping anons import boards to their own imageboard 3. Keeping core boards on Julay under a different name after Julay shuts down.
>>8224 Now, I understand criticism of my decisions, but this is just acting like you're entitled to me hosting a board for you to post on. I didn't say that every board should host their own imageboard as that's obviously idealistic, but at least some segregation is needed.
>>8256 Oh. Well that sounds reasonable, especially #3 there. Can you tell us which boards you consider to be 'core'?

Good things can't last forever, so they say. It's been fun regardless.
>>8239 It's not about prosecution, it's more like not wanting to play Whack-a-Mole with stupid TOSes.
>>8102 I can understand the responsibility getting too big and administrating the site being too much work but I don't understand how you go from wanting to provide a home to the communities that didn't have anywhere to go to shoving them to the curb again and expecting them to create their own site. It just seems contradictory and even misguided, as you have to know hosting a site is not something everyone can do and kicking them out will most likely not change that, and it will further concentrate communities even more on the existing sites instead of spreading them on many sites like you would like. Worse, your intention is to encourage the survival of the communities, but this risks doing the contrary by fracturing them again and extinguishing those that can't find somewhere to settle down. Either way, good luck with your next projects and thanks for hosting everyone here this long, I realize it's a huge task.

>>8238 >9chan >an imageboad operated by null >same null that operates kiwi farms, a website that spergs out about loli harder than even the mods on here yeah, I'm sure they will welcome actual pedophiles with open arms, lmao >>8239 I'm gonna enjoy looking for alternatives when julay shuts down, especially knowing that with how fractured the former 8chan userbase has been, it's fractured even more by sick fucks like you that can't keep your dick in check. Not gonna defend the moderators here or Robi, but you're not making it easy for them if their only choices are welcoming pedophiles who are likely to post CP "Because nobody is gonna get in trouble for it", or borderline CP "because it is totally legal you guize", or being totally cucked, no fun allowed, no loli conservatives that shut down anything as innocent as a reaction image of a smug 12 yr old girl, like 8/b/ under dysnomia. It would kill you not to be a contrarian edgelord that posts about how cool it is to fuck underage children every other post you make, because that totally shows how much a le ultra oldfag you are? Pedophilia never was, and never will be, part of imageboard culture, the harder you try to force it in, the bigger pushback there will be from everyone involved, and the more damage it will cause for everyone in the long run, assuming this isn't your (((goal))) in the first place >>8256 >keeping core boards on julay under a different name after julay shuts down Wait, so you're shutting down julay, but at the same time, you're not? Is this a complete shutdown, or a "reboot", under a different name and different management/system, like people have seen with 8kun?
>>8263 It was a figure of speech, and also, the owners have more of a burden on them than any user.

dead board the Гунт's parasite wins again
Protip for anyone thinking of making a new site: start off with as few boards as possible and only add more of them if and when there's enough traffic to justify it. A lot of boards and few people divides attention and makes the place seem even less active than it is.
>>8265 >Wait, so you're shutting down julay, but at the same time, you're not? Is this a complete shutdown, or a "reboot", under a different name and different management/system, like people have seen with 8kun? That comparison sucks but is accurate. At least I don't plan to have months of downtime and a barely functional website in the end.
>>8263 the contents of /delicious/ could get me party v& in my country and I am glad it's gone.
>>8264 In practical terms then 1. Julay will change domains. 2. Some boards will get exported elsewhere. That doesn't really feel like the site closing down, more like a sensible restructuring. Don't scare me like that nigger.

>>8269 how is the planned end result supposed to look like, and will it be ready to use on day 1, when julay shuts down?
>>8273 There's an interesting point, there are super-cheap hosting options that don't come with SSH access, would it be plausible to host an imageboard on one of those? I believe they all at least do PHP with cPanel, so vichan/NPFchan/infinity might work.
DEAD SITE SARGON WON
>>8275 Smaller version of Julay, hopefully hosted on our own software, should be usable on day 1.
Read a few posts before I gave up. Why can't people just use webring? Technically, you don't even need that if you just advertise each other, but you have it, it is solution for your lazy asses. You have a list of all the boards right there for you. You don't need them to be on the same site. Are you just admitting you are too lazy to click on the board list and find something new that you might like? How is that any different from having a list of boards that are just on a single site? Robi has the right idea. Good on him. I hope other bigger sites follow, but I am sure you will have faggots that will try to be the big dog with all the big boards, which is just sad. Stop asking of somebody else to recreate 4chan for you or alternatively be the ego driven fucktard that wants to be that person and does exactly that, recreate another dumpsterfire.
>>8277 What does sargon have to do with this? I'm not up to date with this sites drama. Or is this just about /cow/?
>>8265 >imageboard culture Should have stayed otaku. Loli is part of otaku culture. Normalfags like you should have never invaded in the first place.
>>8115 I'd like to add to this that you can run vichan for a small board on a $3.5 VPS from buyvm. There's really no excuse for not having your own site.
JUST Hey OP how about deleting all the boards except a few like /cow/?
>>8269 >reboot So which boards are you planning on keeping, and why? I'm asking because I'd move my bunker if you told me to.
>>8284 I haven't decided yet, I will update this thread once I have solidified that idea. Don't worry, it'll be sometime this week which should still give you more than enough time.
>>8265 >pedo not part of IBs Wrong. It was until the focus veered away from them being mainly populated by weebs. What you mean is that nowadays pedo related content and ideas are on their way out as the population of image boards(from which the culture emerges) has shifted enough to want to suppress it. That's my friend, is true.
>>8185 Hey Robi. Thanks for the advance warning. If you'd still like, I'll try to give you a hand with the MultiScraper project and see if the BUMP project work has anything to offer for it.
list of core board that i think should stay, pls add what you think should be added. /meta/ /cow/ /v/ /tech/ /k/ /c/ /fit/ /abdl/ /bandala/ /britfeel/
>>8285 I appreciate that you're being transparent and honest about this, if nothing else. I think people are bristling because this website was like a second home after 8chan died, but those days are over.

>>8256 I don't think there's anything literally free that would be usable and if there was I'm sure they would fold the instant they got a email complaining. But a server provider like buyvm.net (which seems fairly resilient and a lot of the imageboards use now) is pretty cheap. Absolute cheapest is $2 a month, I don't know what the minimum requirements would be for an imageboard with a small number of users. And apparently you can pay them anonymously with cryptocurrency if you're worried about that. That said we don't want the whole webring on one server provider, so it would be good if people figured out other resilient providers. If you just mean for testing it out a little bit, some of the places like Altervista or 000webhost might work well enough to test it, but not in the long term or if you actually have users. You're probably better off spending a few dollars to try testing with a server provider you would actually use though.

I mean, at least for those boards that you don't think you'd want on your website.
>>8294 My referral link for buyvm expired, care to send me another boss?
>>8292 Heh, no but I'm stealing that shit now Anon. :^)
>>8291 ultimately that will be robi's call and i'm not sure how he will choose which board stay which gtfo but i guess our opinion on the matter is being taken into consideration at least a little bit from him.
>>8269 Then you should be clearer about this. It is not a shutdown, more of a "we will go back to be a small site with a few topical boards". Tell the other communities that they have time to setup their place to stay and migrate out of here. That is way different than closing down totally. It's more a big refactoring. Maybe make an announcement with these tones, it'll help BOs understanding the situation. And organiding to make their own IB and add it to the webring.
>>8143 >Might take two years, it's hard to tell right now. But that's what's going to happen sooner or later. Nice. Image boards are going to be great again!

If the webring is going to move into a hub based schema with different sites for different subsets of interests I think that it might be smart for (each?) site(s) to have a /refugee/ board in case one of the other sites get dunked and they need a meeting place to regroup and rehost a new site.
>>8312 I need to hear it from the man himself. Right now it's only implied as not coming over, not explicitly stated. He's already bringing the board back when he finishes the domain transfer.
Thanks for everyone's input. I'll be creating a new thread with an OP that describes my plan better within the hour, and add that to the global announcement.
