16chan Owner AMA Thread 663 Board owner 09/24/2019 (Tue) 17:33:33 No. 409
In order to consolidate many of the threads that have been made asking me questions, I figured it would be a better idea to have a dedicated thread for it. So go ahead AMA.
Do you think the Christchurch shooting was real or fake?
Why are you using a (((Sargon))) Pepe banner?
>Do you think the Christchurch shooting was real or fake?
Didn't follow it at all actually so no idea

>Why are you using a (((Sargon))) Pepe banner?
User submitted, I don't watch Sargon
So there are many threads for 16chan questions, as such I will be focusing on more personal questions. It goes with out saying that you are unlikely nor advised to dox yourself, obviously you may pass or be as vague as you deem necessary.

IB's by nature are meant to be 100% anonymous, but at the same time we see you often participating in our threads with BO tag and I'm sure many people may be curious as to who you are

>3. Occupation?

>1. ASL?

>2. Education?
Degree in CS

>3. Occupation?

>4. Family background?
Central/Eastern European

>5. Why 663?
Name of a character from one of my favorite kino films Chungking Express

>6. Is there a Mrs. 663?

>7. Any little ones?

I'm going to be vague for obvious reasons, hopefully you got something out of it
Id be shocked if anyone on this board voted Shillary,

>Did you vote for Trump, in primary or general? Why or Why not?

We all love putting labels on one another.
>Conservative, Libertarian, Patriot, Constitutionalist, Capitalist?
All of the above?

Obviously your a 1rst Amendment supporter.
>Your views 2nd, Restrictions?

Glowing here...
>How many registered firearms do you possess?
>Did you vote for Trump, in primary or general? Why or Why not?
Didn't vote for Trump/Hillary or Bernie. I'm quite indifferent to him in all honesty, I don't follow much of the news, so I don't have a formulated or educated opinion on him. I really really dislike the Clinton's and Bernie.

>Conservative, Libertarian, Patriot, Constitutionalist, Capitalist?
From what you listed, I would say I am a conservative (in the sense that smaller government is better). I am not very informed on economic systems but I oppose communism very heavily. I do not believe in such a distribution of resources.

>Your views 2nd, Restrictions?
I agree that it's a constitutional right, and I agree with the most recent interpretation of said amendment by the Supreme Court. Restrictions? Leave it to the states to decide whats best for them.

>How many registered firearms do you possess?
None, didn't grow up around gun culture or people that had guns, might get one someday (not something I'm particularly interested in).
When are you going give decision? Are you holding until it gets big? I will be out of country in November so I need a break during that month, Boss man!
>>3. Occupation?
You said you were a wagie. Why are you lying? :^(
Pretty much a NEET, I work part time wagie job like 2 days a week. I work like ever other week nowadays. I should've been more clear.
Sorry what decision? Confused if that's a question or not
If it comes to the point (and I'm quite sure it will happen sooner than expected if this site gains popularity) where you don't make enough money to sustain your neet lifestyle and hosting costs, what will happen? Will you start to wageslave more, will you get greedy and start to monetize from ads/captcha, or will you implement 16chan gold accounts? Also, Asuka or Rei?
I'll wagie harder, I don't plan on implementing ads (if it did come down to it, they wouldn't be through ad-sense but custom banners from whomever wants to advertise for a flat fee -- I don't plan on implementing ads though but just a thought). No Google anything ever. The Captcha system we have built in is in-house opensource/libre and doesn't track analytics (I toggle it every once in a blue moon when spamming happens and only for thread creation -- if things really pick up some form of Captcha may be used, don't know exactly, however, I would like to keep it to minimum).

The only money I would get from the site would be: donations, a cut from merch (if I decide to make some -- no current plans at the moment but I am willing to consider it)

Passes aren't currently planned, the basic functionality is there but I have no plans on monetizing it.

So last night I was going to throw you a soft ball like, "Why did you create 16"..or something of the like, for the record

Then while going through other posts by you, I found a comment about "epic manifesto's" and was going to put you to test about freeze peach. While researching my question, and citing US 1rst A, and limitations including SCOTUS decisions (Saved info epic effort post at later date), it quickly turned into a dissertation.

Know you well enough by now, that your answer would be.

"Say what ever you want, just don't bring the glowies down on 16chan"

We saw you fairly often in the first week participation in threads with random comments, other that just 16 related topics.

Which now leaves me with with one perturbing question

>Do you ever post on 16chan.xyz boards ... Anonymous?
>Do you ever post on 16chan.xyz boards ... Anonymous?
I post under Anonymous extremely rarely. I can think of 2 instances (If I do it's usually because I was testing a feature and forgot to use my tripcode after clearing cache/cookies).
Go on xchan for those.
>Boobs, ass, thighs, or feet?
All are nice. Boobs probably at slot 1.
>Any hobbies?
Primarily watching film (I love watching arthouse movies and independent/foreign films). Funny enough I was going to launch 16chan without a /pol/ board and only with a /tv/ board because I think all film forums are usually horrible and attract people that criticize film as an enforcement of their political values (a form of virtue signaling, the worst offender being Letterboxd). Sad that 16/tv/ is completely dead, but at least it doesn't have Sneed posters.
- A bunch of /g/ related things - programming, building various projects.
- If you asked me a year or two ago I might have said video games but I must don't have the same interest i once had.
>Favorite food?
Pizza? Pretty generic answer, I'll eat anything I'm not picky.
>Star Wars or Star Trek?
Really really hard, I think I would go with Startrek, specifically TOS and TNG. Not a fan of the series past those. Star Wars has been ruined.

I very well might add those boards, this Anon >>473 made a good point, if you want /x/ or /fringe/ for the time being xchan is really comfy. /fit/ has been requested very frequently and will likely be on the next batch of boards to be added. I might add /x/ in the future, but haven't had too many requests thus far.
If it's not too personal, how old are you?
Early 20s
why did you block my IP, kid?>>479
I don't believe I did, did you make a post that got deleted/moderated for some reason? If not put in an appeal.
Can you put in dates and times for posts in mobile format?
I think this can be achieved if you toggle into desktop mode on your phone, click settings, other, and enable local times/relative times. Refresh the page and you should see them.

I would strongly recommend that you use the mobile app, the experience is much better than the mobile site.

We are also working on a Clover release, which will hopefully be getting a release on F-droid as well.

Thanks anons, I didn't know about that place. Been feeling very lost after they nuked 8chan
Also glad to hear there's a clover release in the works
Do you have any Jewish ancestry?
Do you follow any religion or are you irreligious?
Are you American and have you traveled to other countries? If so, which are your favorite?
Do you know how to code?
What OS and browser are you using? What would you recommend?
Do you have any thoughts on Richard Stallman's recent kerfluffles?
>Do you have any Jewish ancestry?
>Do you follow any religion or are you irreligious?
Non-practicing Roman Catholic, I accepted all the sacrements up to confirmation. I would say I'm agnostic at this point in my life.
>Are you American and have you traveled to other countries? If so, which are your favorite?
Yes, and no not really.
>Do you know how to code?
Yes, I'm probably at an entry/low-intermediate level.
>What OS and browser are you using? What would you recommend?
OS: Debian testing, browser: FF, recommendation would 100% be Debian stable/testing. I don't have the time or the patience to configure a more modular OS like Arch or Gentoo. To each their own.
>Do you have any thoughts on Richard Stallman's recent kerfluffles?
I love Stallman, I actually met him. I hate all of his personal/political beliefs (outside of his philosophy on free software). He's very autistic and I think the media spun what he said. Either way he's always had autistic values, this is no surprise, let the man be is my opinion.

Cool! For someone who have never used Linux but wants to find a replacement for their Windows 7 computer, what would you recommend? Is Debian good for beginners?

Do you have any opinions on Ubuntu? Is it true that it's bloatware/botnet now? And what about Mint is that also viable for beginners?

Should I preferably buy a new desktop or laptop if I were to pursue getting a Linux? My current one is nearly 10 years old and getting really sluggish.

Do you also have any opinions on the browser Pale Moon?
>Cool! For someone who have never used Linux but wants to find a replacement for their Windows 7 computer, what would you recommend? Is Debian good for beginners?
I think if you're an absolute beginner and have no experience with GNU/Linux (interjection :)) then Debian might be a bit of a jump in complexity. I think Ubuntu is probably the easiest starting point, or even Mint (I haven't used Mint but many recommend it). If you go with Ubuntu I recommend using either XFCE or KDE as your DE. I personally prefer KDE, it's probably the closest to Windows DE.

>Do you have any opinions on Ubuntu? Is it true that it's bloatware/botnet now? And what about Mint is that also viable for beginners?
I think when it still used Unity it was indeed bloated, I think it featured some sort of Amazon integration, to my knowledge this is gone. Install Kubuntu/Xubuntu for less bloat. Or if you're a big brain and want to learn something new get the Ubuntu/Debian netinstall and avoid bloat together. I should mention if you are big on software freedom and ethics go with Debian since the non-free repository is disabled by default. Read my previous response to your first question about Ubuntu/Mint.

>Should I preferably buy a new desktop or laptop if I were to pursue getting a Linux? My current one is nearly 10 years old and getting really sluggish.
The age of your laptop might actually help with compatibility. Age might not be a bad idea. I think that Thinkpad's are probably the best computers for running GNU/Linux ( :) ). There is a Thinkpad general on our /g/ board right now, and that's a good starting point. A really top notch Thinkpad (upgraded processor/IPS panel/RAM upgrade) will probably run you $200-400 depending on your workload.

>Do you also have any opinions on the browser Pale Moon?
Haven't used it, so can't say. But I don't believe it's open source.

Just installed Devuan on an older HP laptop. meh. - think I'm going to install Ubuntu Server and then use the Xfce4 desktop gui. - I'm actually doing that right now. My main box runs MX Linux, with Win 10 installed on a separate drive. I had Win7, but I needed Win 10 to use my VR headset and Adobe Lightroom. I don't like Darkroom. the VR headset was a $400.00 meh btw... I have another laptop running MX Linux in the kitchen, all routers running OpenWrt or DDWrt - The only thing that isn't linux is my wife's computer - Android is Linux too for those who don't know. No real questions here - just saying hi.
MX looks pretty comfy/and in all honesty Ubuntu just werks, so can't complain. To each their own, find what works for you and use it. I think Louis Rossman mentioned that once in a video.

And hi Anon :)
What's up Anon?
Akshually, xubuntu-core gui is looking preddy comphy rite nao...
I'm going to have a naked laptop with an OS and a Gui. No programs other than the OS. This blows peoples minds because they don't understand.
Just get Emacs, you don't need anything else.
I was going to install focuswriter
........considering emacs
too many interface/shortcut changes. Plus focuwriter has spelcheK.
I may just install it just because
If you're interested in Emacs, give Spacemacs a try. All the time you put into Emacs (assuming you have an end goal) will be worth it.

But yeah, try Spacemacs, and maybe move to regular Emacs and customize it to your liking. I'm working on an Elisp package for automatically pulling all new posts from 16chan and giving me notifications to both my desktop and phone for making moderation easier.
It's nice that LynxChan generates RSS information for every board, example:
- https://16chan.xyz/pol/index.rss
- https://www.16chan.xyz/latest/index.rss
Edited last time by 663 on 09/27/2019 (Fri) 04:19:59.
why isnt there an /x/ board?
Can you publish the source code to your front-end? Probably one of the best LynxChan ones out right now. It looks to be a fork of penumbralynx, but you have done some nice work with CSS and layout.
could you please proxy ban israel?
(3.11 MB 270x480 strongk.gif)
Yeah, A /fit/ board would be lit..
I will add it tomorrow (Sunday)
When will we have an auto thread? N
/x/ and
/x/ and /fringe/ please
I would love to see a /x board on 16 chan.
thanks for making this thread and the board! very cool community on all the boards i've visited so far.
actually probably wait until traffic picks up before new boards. thanks again for the swell tor friendly site.
Can you please promise me that there will never ever, whatever happens, be a pron board on 16chan?
Will there be a /biz/ board
Since board requests are being posted here, I would like to request /tg/ and perhaps /loomis/ for the drawfags that are restricted to posting 1 image/post on quarterchan

I think the sooner these boards are created, the better, since it takes lots of time for traffic to build. On the other hand, it looks like 663 is doing all the legwork, so it doesn't have to be rushed.
Noted Anon, I think that would be a great addition, I just put it on the list of boards to be added soon.

Board owner, someone posted illegal content at https://16chan.xyz/b/res/772.html#q1195 please take care of it.
Taken care of thankyou
You need mods.
Any plan to make an /x/ board? many pol topics cross over into x, like jews/vampires for example, would be good to have an /x/ here so I can completely abandon 4ch
There is proof out there that you've had intimate relations with some Asian girl, photos of you with her exist on /cow/ and people have started posting them on 4chan and Lynxhub. Instead of deleting inquirers on here and banning them for a year (your bans are screenshotted and subsequently discredit your website further) could you explain why you host a white nationalist-leaning board (/pol/) why having had (or still having) an interracial affair?

And is it true that you both have worked for NBC?

I would really appreciate it if you could answer truthfully rather than just predictably delete this post and ban me. If you want to know what others are saying about you on the world's largest imageboard (and thus have the biggest sway in how potential new users could view your site and you personally), just look up '16chan' in 4plebs.
>could you explain why you host a white nationalist-leaning board (/pol/) why having had (or still having) an interracial affair?
*correction, while having had ...
Two requests: an automotive board. and ban all redditors. If someones cookies show they've used reddit a few times that's ok, but if they use it, post on it, often over and over, they will be blocked from 16chan.xyz
Tails is the thaddest of the thad linuxes.
I know it would fuck upprivacy, but it could be programmed to only highlight reddit cookies and reddit cookies only.
I'm going to agree with this. I left Windoze 15 years ago when it wasn't as easy. As much as I used to recommend Linux Mint, I would say FUCK UBUNTU now. Many reasons. MX19 will be out any day and it will be fantastic. I'm on 18.3 as my daily driver and love it. Nothing better than MX Linux on a Live USB, period. (Up to 40GB Root Persistence & up to 40GB Home Persistence!)
Building Debian from a vanilla install may be more than most can handle, but I'm doing it for my main machine and love it so far. It's really the way to go.
I like the XFCE Desktop for getting shit done, but KDE is so pretty! I actually whipped up my own MX / KDE spin if anyone's interested.
> vid related
Mubangu just sent you a request to create a board!
I've been using MXLinux now for over 2 1/2 years.
that desktop tho
I picked this computer up for $124.00, but did some add ons
-- CPU: Intel Core i5-4570 CPU @ 3.6GHz
-- GPU: Radeon RX 570 Series (POLARIS10, DRM 3.27.0, 4.19.0-1-amd64, LLVM 7.0.0)
-- RAM: 1249MiB / 11948MiB
MX is my main OS.
I do have Win10 installed on a separate drive though for running VR (Rift S) and one other game. I really didn't want to install Win10, but I had to for the VR Headset.
yada yada
How are you adding repositories on MX?
I've had problems doing that, but then again I haven't been a Linux user for 15 years.
Only for the past 3.
I Started with a Raspberry Pi

>Ubuntu (Zulu pronunciation: [ùɓúntʼù]) is a Nguni Bantu term meaning "humanity." It is often translated as "I am because we are," or "humanity towards others," but is often used in a more philosophical sense to mean "the belief in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity."

>In Southern Africa, it has come to be used as a term for a kind of humanist philosophy, ethic, or ideology, also known as Ubuntuism propagated in the Africanisation (transition to majority rule) process of these countries during the 1980s and 1990s.

>Since the transition to democracy in South Africa with the Nelson Mandela presidency in 1994, the term has become more widely known outside of Southern Africa, notably popularised to English-language readers through the ubuntu theology of Desmond Tutu. Tutu was the chairman of the South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC), and many have argued that ubuntu was a formative influence on the TRC.

>The concept was popularised in terms of a "philosophy" or "world view" (as opposed to a quality attributed to an individual) beginning in the 1950s, notably in the writings of Jordan Kush Ngubane published in the African Drum magazine. From the 1970s, the ubuntu began to be described as a specific kind of "African humanism." Based on the context of Africanisation propagated by the political thinkers in the 1960s period of decolonisation, ubuntu was used as a term for a specifically African (or Southern African) kind of humanism found in the context of the transition to majority rule in Zimbabwe and South Africa. The first publication dedicated to ubuntu as a philosophical concept appeared in 1980, Hunhuism or Ubuntuism: A Zimbabwe Indigenous Political Philosophy (hunhu being the Shona equivalent of Nguni ubuntu) by Stanlake J. W. T. Samkange. Hunhuism or Ubuntuism is presented as political ideology for the new Zimbabwe, as Southern Rhodesia was granted independence from the United Kingdom.

>From Zimbabwe, the concept was taken over in South Africa in the 1990s as a guiding ideal for the transition from apartheid to majority rule. The term appears in the Epilogue of the Interim Constitution of South Africa (1993), "there is a need for understanding but not for vengeance, a need for reparation but not for retaliation, a need for ubuntu but not for victimisation."

Ubuntu is literally death to Whites disguised as goodwill and reconciliation and reparation against colonization (used against Europeans too)... wtf is there to repair? SA and Rhodesia were not broken before (((communists))), anti-White terrorists (Mandela, vowing to kill Whites) and blacks took power.

>Ummmm, when you are going to get off your ass and pull yourself by the bootstraps Mr Neet?
Working on it right now.

>what is your first operating system you used?
Windows 95 I think

>favorite album?
Hard choice, but probably Yellow Magic Orchestra's self titled album or some sort of classic music compilation album (my favorite music genre)

>Favorite anime?
I really don't like anime, don't watch it anymore. Probably something cliche from the past though like Cowboy Bebop or Samurai Champloo.

plz create /mu/ board so we can share politically incorrect .mp3 files
Why don't you monetize from ads? right on top of the banner, just some sort of ad. and it could be targeted based off of who usually is the kind of people to visit them and what the board is, NOT targeting seperate people. like /pol/ and /fit/ users could be marketed excersise products, /g/ could be marketed techy stuff, like linux distros or high performance computers, etc. etc. There's no reason not to. i would be happy to sustain your neet lifestyle just by glancing at whatevers in the ad box and visiting this website adding onto a measure of unique users traffic and content for you to report to advertisers so they'll know people are seeing the ads and they'll give you money.
<(((plus, whenever tor users refresh their identity, that counts as a unique user same with after tails users power off.)))
lindows or linux mint. my ideal computer situation would be a pre-2004 laptop with lindows on it for my windows things and linux mint+whonix for things that would bust my security in tails, like youtube, 8kun or 4chan,
and a usb with tails on it for everything else, and then have an old ibm with a cd running an encrpted tails file on it connected to an onionpi server with the stuff on the onionpi encrypted as well for buying guns and pot (no worries, i'm not a nigger, i would get a license but still buy it anonymously just so the left can't take it away. and i don't condone hippie or nigger culture at all, in fact as a natsoc i hate hippies and nigls. I just realized how niggardly guns and pot sounds.), and then another onionpi for tails lindows and mint. if you want ubuntu get mint instead. mint is just like ubuntu but better.
since a cd costs a few cents, and onionpi 100 dollars approx each, a pre 04 laptop probably cheap and same with the ibm, i could afford this, but i use someone elses computer right now, so no sense in buying a used one right now, but the owner would be pissed if i installed a new os on there.

Any plans for this?

Also, what about posting pictures directly from interweb/url? Safer for tories.

And AND and if video can be embedded, can it be made reality that we actually have a thumbnail of it instead of just a link?

What are the hard limits? Please do not turn this into another fucking safe space. I feel like we're starting to live inside The Giver or 1984. Also how long do you plan on keeping this website going? Given the way things are going it looks like it's going to boom in popularity, and then you might have a problem maintaining your anonymity and also having a quasi normal life.

I know this place is relatively small, but how do you manage to have a 50MB max file size? What's the hosting setup you've got, and do you have some sort of system to throttle people who upload too much?
>>1166 Free Speech is Absolute. As is Users/Mods ability to ignore, hide, filter, report, delete, and ban as they see fit. Genuine discussion is welcomed. Trolling for the sake of getting attention is not. There are rules here, both spoken and implied.

>>409 Here's rule 13 from Ausneets: "13. People of non-standard Race, Gender or Sexuality are welcome but must not use their difference and others’ reaction to it to disrupt threads and attention whore. The onus is on the person who is different to integrate themselves successfully within the community." Non-standard race, gender, sexuality? This has several problems. I know you're trying to avoid making a fucking "safe space" here but this actually does not protect freedom of speech. It limits it. Please get rid of it.
>>1292 That rule only applies to ausneets and it's the rule they wanted.
>>1294 LOL they wanted a segregated board huh
>>1297 So? 8chan was full of boards with different rules and that's where they're from. You can still whine about how hard life as a Jewish trans black woman in China is on b.
How are you going to prevent this forum from becoming a shitty cancerous nightmare like what happened to 4chan? Sooner or later all the normalfag chads, stacies, and SJWs are going to swarm in here in one homogenous hall-of-mirrors echo chamber mass and that's a problem for even the best admins and mods.

>>409 When will you clear /b/ of threads? It's tiring to see the same threads every single day.
>>1375 Fuck off you whiny loser or make new threads yourself. I made one already and if you don't like it then sage it and make your own.
>>1376 What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I'll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I've been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I'm the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You're fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that's just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little "clever" comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn't, you didn't, and now you're paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You're fucking dead, kiddo.
can we have /plants or /gardening board??
Can we get a ban on twitter screencaps? Posting some literally who opinion adds nothing of value to discussion
What are your thoughts on the rampant mistrust/ paranoia that exists on the various chans? Do you think glownlggers are as plentiful as people make it seem to be? Have you ever been contacted, followed or spyed on (to your knowledge) by LE?
So honestly after using the site for a few days, a couple things stick out that could make this better. >1. A couple additional themes. >2. CSS tweaks to make things more symmetrical and easier to read. >3. Native extension like 4chan has. For the native extension, a floating quick-reply, auto-update by default, centering threads, enforcing HTTPS, etc. For the CSS tweaks, having the font at 75% or 80% is kind of small, you would be better off setting it to 100% and changing default pixel values. For additional themes, Photon would be good and possibly something like Lainchan's CyberPunk.
Why was the site down these days?
>>1468 ddos attacks
>>1468 >>1469 Also a small amount of downtime at around ~1600 UTC today not sure how long it had been down for before I checked. >can't tell if I should take action offline or if that's what the glowjoggers want me to do >going to shitpost some propaganda IRL anyways day of the lamppost NOW

>>550 Easier said than done. Either way, pretty sure that all memeflaggers from Israel are on a VPN. >>639 I don't plan for there to be p0rn boards, that being said, people will always post lewd content, we have /b/ for that reason as a containment board. It's a pseudo-p0rn board in a way. It's the lesser of two evils as it allows us to move off-topic and overly-lewd content. >>642 >>660 >>915 Generic answer to mostly all people that ask about can we have /insertboardhere/. 16chan is a small and tight knit community, that being said, I don't want to create additional boards unless the traffic would demand for it. As of right now most new boards are for communities migrating from other sites. If there is a /biz/ community that would like to migrate to 16, I wouldn't mind making a board. For the time being, as a general answer to questions like this, I recommend making a general on another board, and seeing how other 16ers respond to it. >>664 As traffic grows we will recruit moderators accordingly, there would be a global announcement posted. Our current staff does and excellent job maintaining and moderating the site. >>588 As in threading done through something like 4chanX? I don't currently have the feature planned but I think it would be a great addition. If anyone has the skillset I would happily accept merge requests to the 16chan frontend/backend (available here: https://gitgud.io/663/16Lynx). >>878 >what is your first operating system you used? Windows 95? Probably >favorite album? Touch question, I'll just throw out some things I like. Yellow Magic Orchestra (self titled album), and the Memories of Murder Soundtrack. >Favorite anime? Not really a fan of anime anymore but, Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo, Golden Boy. >>915 I recommend making a general on /culture/ or /library/ >>1419 I think that it's largely justified, some paranoia at the very least. I can understand people having a hesitance to using new sites, and being suspicious especially when the site is usually run by an anon as well. I without a doubt believe the people are targeted, survived, and marked as potential threats depending on what beliefset they believe in or places they frequent. If this is a concern to you, I would highly recommend changing and being cautious of your digital footprint. Switch to GNU/Linux, use Core/Libreboot, use OpenWRT, use TOR, don't just take my word for it do your own research. Find like minded people regardless of where they are. I would love to address this question in greater depth, I find it to be a very important factor that people should take into consideration. >>1457 >1. A couple additional themes. 2 is addressed in this too. New Frontend is in the works as we speak, should be dropping this upcoming Friday (the 2nd). >3. Native extension like 4chan has. This can be done, and some of your requests will be covered out of the box in the upcoming update. >>1483 I believe I've addressed this many times. I won't entirely know where I would stand as the definitions of right and left, and conservative vary so much online. I care mostly about freedom of information, and speech. As well as ethics in software. If you have specific questions regarding a political stance I can give you a more precise answer. >>1497 I browse daily, I simply lurk. I take the role of maintaining the site, and making sure everything operates correctly on a technical level. Also, >>1498 this. I used to browse the site and post mostly using my role signature, but I prefer to be incognito. >>1516 Welcome newfren.
>>2458 I was the admin of an image board with, let's say, controversial beliefs. I know for a fact that there are organizations that go onto image boards and forums to shill and troll. Some are just groups like /baphomet/ or Kiwifarms that get a kick out messing up communities. Others are non-governmental organizations, such as companies that promote things for pay, or activist groups that harass admins and disrupt conversation. I never saw any direct evidence of actual government agents on my site but it's very likely they were there. Keep in mind my site only had a few dozen (legitimate) posters.

>>2522 I've managed to lower our hosting/upkeep costs so low that 16chan is technically profitable. Everything I get in donations I put directly back into extending the lifespan of the site - as of right now we only have an expense for domains and email, which is roughly ~$30/year.

>>2613 You really think there is need for dedicated board? We had /fit/ in the beginning, but it really wasn't used much.
>>409 Make this website fully SFW.

>>2679 Maybe we could have something like anoncafe, n which they have a /server/ board, each thread on the board is like a general for that whole board (/fit/, /fringe/, etc) for when there is not enough posts for an entire new board. And once there is clearly enough growth/speed in a series of threads it will be self-evident.
>>2680 That was more or less the intention of >>>/culture/ (philosophy, religion, pseudoscience, art, literature, and music and film) Both fit and fringe would fit in fine there
