>everything's 404ing again

For fuck's sake.


We're back, but for how long?



Judging by what we've just experienced, I imagine it'll be intermittent.

>8chan is burning down again

Oh well, at least I have something to masturbate to.


I was worried it was something on my part, hopefully it gets fixed soon.



Seems to be working now. I managed to post at least. It might be intermittent.



Just did it now as well, but the catalog didn't update to recognize the change.


What the Cloudflare is doing?



Failing, as usual.



Yep. Back to the bunker we come. How are we doing today? I've read the latest Promised Nevermind chapter, interesting insight into Mama's history and shown in only four panels too. I really hope the story doesn't lose the focus it's had since the start. It could very easily derail itself.



Did I break the bunker? I hope I didn't.


Looks like the site is down again



not again.. fuck

The site is down, but oddly at least as a vol I can still see and post on /2hu/ and /loli/ through the mod pages.



Looks like it might just be index and catalog pages down. Just posted in the anime dream thread and it went through just fine.


down again..?



Looks that way. Hopefully it will be back up again soon.



Got a 502 thing.



I could reply to threads I already had open but couldn't open new threads.



sys.8ch.net is still up, hence why posting works.

You should be able to use the public mod account to browse the site normally:


Username: Anyone

Password: 0



I wonder what the fuck is happening and when codemonkey is going to fix the memory leak, how the fuck do you get a commie to get off his ass anyway? There is no gulag to throw him in


Really? Mine just get stuck on the posted bit



Checking some of the most populated boards, it seems like it is hit-and-miss. Trying to access the catalog of the political boards and /a/ will give 502, but /v/ and /tv/ at least somewhat load. Also some anons can still reply to threads that were open before whatever happened.

It's switching between working and being down. I doubt that it will go down long enough for people to stay in the bunker for more than an hour or so.



It's been 4 hours of complete downtime for me



Welp, sys.8ch.net seems to be unresponsive now, so I can't post. I bet this is that damn rabbit's fault.



It's giving a "Scheduled maintenance" message when I try to post.

I'm getting really tired of this shit.


Now it's switching between working and not working. It will probably fix itself in the morning I guess.


It's of the year of the fire cock now, but I don't remember what that entails specifically though. I'd still consider 2017 to be better than 2015 though.


And now the catalog link isn't working. Clicking on it just brings you to the first page.



Yeah the Friends thread doesnt display past a few hours ago.



Going to the index will take you to the catalog and vice versa. Something's definitely going wrong.


So every tiem the index page redirects to page 3 or something means site is fucked.

But /a/'s backup bunker, which looks the fucking same as 8chan, still works.




I blame Josh


Guys, I think 8chan and endchan may be datamining our asses and there's nothing we can do about it.

There is also https://8ch.pl/a/ Hosted in Moldova, the country in which you can pretty much hate-speech (lol Holocaust denial) because it's freedom of speech but I don't think it has an appealling number of users and posts per hour, it's so damn quiet in there, even on /pol/ (/pol/ is a new bunker, turns out imkampfy and therealmoonman were bumplocking threads and banning users posting delicate information and leaks). I don't even know if this site is secure, I think 8chan.net's datamining scandal made me suffer from severe paranoia.

Is imageboard culture kill? Who is gonna replace us?



Realtime imageboards are the future, they just need to grow out of their sekrit club circlejerk stage.


File: 1496521869255.png (1.38 MB, 1622x1480, 811:740, 8chan IPs.png)


8chan isn't datamining anything. See these long strings? That's the hashed IPs, which change every few weeks. This is with my global account. The Server doesn't save anything else.

As a comparison: I don't do anything with them, but smuglo.li still saves the unhashed IPs. At some point I hope Head Meido merges the OpenIB changes with our memory cached vichan (the thing that makes this site so fast), but for now I can see your IPs.



i found this site bc someone posted the link to it on /b/8ch and dysnomia kept asking and prodding about it so i figured i'd visit, this was weeks ago maybe months back



You of little faith, why must you be so cynical. Just stay away from the cartel's nyaa.si page and all will be well

At least we have the bunker. Again.


What's been happening recently? The site has gone down for an hour or two regularly for the past few days.



It happens whenever the oompa loompas working the coal furnace take a break



It's just a slow night. all the anons have gone to bed.



Who knows. /pol/ is being hit with randomized spam, posting doesn't work on /a/ and sys.8ch.net is down. I whined in the IRC, but Ron seems to be sleeping.


So some sperg is spamming /pol/ so much its fucking with the site. Why do these retards insist on even bothering with that board if they think its shit? I just want to post on /a/.



The only problem with making threads in the bunker is that they will likely stay dead until 8ch comes back up. But if you want to anyways, feel free to use the bunker as much as you want.



>Ded again.

Thank goodness it wasnt just me. I thought pale moon was doing something stupid


We're back now.


The head maid should be on the lookout since apparently some tiny ib is planning to raid top boards to steal users away and make Jim suffer.

This is the most retarded thing I've seen since the people who thought constantly posting about endchan was going to make a difference.

I've been out of the loop today. Is the spam really nothing more than faggots thinking spam would actually cause people to leave the site. It didn't work with /intl/ back in 2015, and it certainly won't work in 2017.


Why did Mark do that anyway? /v/ has more problems to deal with than the rabbit threads anyway.



Never did get an explanation, even though I did it his way. He's just inconsistent with everything and doesn't want people to have fun with a good luck charm meant to help others.



I don't think so. If you read what their plan is it doesn't match the spam that's being seen.

>No spam, just single posts on all the top boards and smaller but still popular ones like /x/ and such.

The spam is happening in threads with completely randomized combinations of words. None of them mention 32chan. It could be someone acting on the same basis as these guys though.

>As many of you know, /b/ is officially dead.

>It got spammed to shit, so DickInsomnia's placed in a permanent captcha, and has also locked every single thread critiquing him.

Possibly what we might be seeing is that someone from /b/ got so fed up that he decided to just nuke the site as much as possible.

Nine times out of ten it seems to be former /b/ and /pol/ users trying to bring the site down, what a shock two of the shittiest boards host such posters and never seem to understand boards like ours have not given much of a fuck about whatever issues they have with other BOs/admin.



There's also some guy on /jp/ claiming he's responsible and asking who to blame.



Some raid this has been, I've only seen them post to a few boards and the reaction from all of the threads has been apathy mixed with being told to fuck off. The process is playing out like it always does.

Is 8ch dead again? My posts get stuck in "posting" loading for a long time, over 10 minutes. Usually when this happens I can see the post by opening the thread in a new tab and the thread gets bumped. Right now though the post doesnt seem like it will ever finish. Is this part of the server upgrade?



It might be, I'm getting the same problems.



A lot of threads are getting messed up with new posts getting deleted at random, it seems. Might have something to do with the server upgrade they're trying to complete.

Pictures and WebMs just won't load on site, opening a new tab just leaves the pic half loaded. I'm downloading shit from the site at literally 10- kb/s.

Other sites work well, bunker included, so it's not just my shit internet.



Yeh it's been slow for me for the last 6 hours or so.



8chan is always slow on Saturdays.



It's one of the reason's that we moved the streams over here, since like >>410920 said, 8chan always seems to shit itself on Saturday.





Not just today, seems it's been slow the entire week, if not more.

I guess, but it's been a while since I was completely unable to post in any board.


File: 1517492305290.png (75.69 KB, 303x336, 101:112, 34523453.PNG)

I'm just about to write off /a/ as completely lost to shitposters now. Cancer threads stay up completely untouched, oftentimes protected by the maids now, and the few maids that do appear to remove shitposts after half a day of being up don't touch them half the time. Coupled with a pretty blatant look based on their decisions to not touch certain threads that crossboarders are being welcomed with open arms now, the board is turning into /tv/ or another shitpost haven.

It was a good run, /a/.


File: 1517496616032.jpg (85.2 KB, 850x832, 425:416, sample_59e75b979b9a8659b5b….jpg)


I hope that we get some new meido's who are able to start cleaning up /a/. When there has been a thread about book covers, completely unrelated to anything japanese, up for hours, it starts to feel like the meidos just stopped iving a shit or just don't watch /a/ anymore. Either way I think we need some new meido's to help deal with the rampant shitposters that have been taking control of /a/ recently.



> I think we need some new meido's

In a thread on ameta, BO said there would be a meido drive but nothing has happened yet. I would love the chance to take a ban hammer to invaders but if the chance never arrives I can't help but avoid an increasing number of threads.



More meidos would be nice, it feels like there are certain periods in the day where there is no coverage.



Honestly you would probably be removed as a meido if you started doing that. They don't want to remove crossboarders anymore, we have a fucking /tv/ tier thread about netflix up for days.


File: 1517530663343.png (171.52 KB, 450x416, 225:208, akarin.png)

Why are there so many fucking newfags on /a/ recently? It's really uncomfy.



I don't understand it. The franxx threads are a disaster and the valentines collage thread is on active cleaning. I thought the christmas collage thread was an isolated event but seeing this happen again supports the idea of 8/a/ going through a fundamental change in culture. I don't like where this is going.



It's not a culture change. The meidos are gone for some reason. I think a lot of them are cuckchanners, but I don't know what happened for so many of them to suddenly appear.

I can't believe that there are anons who are outright admitting they are from /v/ without being immediately told to fuck off or getting banned. 2017 had too many events that led to crossboarders sneaking in and without from nyaa dying to the wedding thread where even codemonkey tried to shit it up, with the general apathy and actual lack of meidos being unable to delay it at the least. I hate sounding like a defeatist since when you take time to examine the situation it becomes extremely easy to find a solution to it, but it feels like /a/ is in the general state of decay that happens when something reaches its end.

Looking at the ban list a meido was around 3 hours ago.

>Honestly you would probably be removed as a meido if you started doing that

I can confirm. If you are too strict you will be dumped as a medio. Unrelated I decided to poke my head into /animu/ to see what all the fuss was about and stumbled across pic related.



>If you are too strict you will be dumped as a medio

They aren't just soft, they are enforcing going soft.

/a/ is no longer daijobu.



I think they've always been reasonably just.

The real issue is that we only have three meidos left as confirmed by BO on /ameta/. I really don't think that's enough to handle all the clean-up duties.

I start each day off with at least three reports, for fuck's sake.



I'm done going to /a/ for now, smuglo is all I have left that the shitposters haven't taken.


The head meido put up a recruitment drive thread, though with how laid back moderation is now, it probably will not even make a difference in shitposters. If someone can not be asked to put a period and use a capital letter, then what are the chances they are going to do anything but make a shitpost.



> we only have three meidos left

It doesn't help when capable and keen meidos get fired.



>meido drive

I want to apply but >>413509 >>413518 are discouraging to see. It would be really painful to be told you cannot do anything except clean the floors while the ship burns and sinks.



I'll apply anyways. I suppose its better to be rejected by the application process due to over-enthusiasm than to never at least try to make things better.

I am going to try, since I can't talk about the moderation of /a/ not being good right now, then pass up a chance given to me to try to moderate /a/ and hopefully get rid of some of the shitposters, without sounding like a hypocrite. Though I hope this position isn't too rough on my fellow little girls, I wouldn't want them to get burnt out and have the userbase of actual little girls decrease even more since they were too enthusiastic about cleaning up and making sure /a/ was as good as it could be. Though the thread started out being shit up by people trying to argue what a crossboarder is, which makes me believe that /a/ is not only filled with shitposters now but also newfags who are running amok around /a/. Now it's arguing about different boards, so the topic has gone completely off of /a/, though I guess that is to be expected considering how /ameta/ is used by most people to just shitpost.


Meido drive is over. I hope things go well.

Depending on how many applications they got they might still be going through them. I saw pic related when I went through the thread today.


What happened to 8chan this time?



DDOS attack. That's all we know. Hopefully we get the details later.



My first thought is that some is still butthurt over our existence, but I recall hearing some autist making threats at a board. I think it was /u/.

Is bui on the loose again?




God fucking dammit! This feels like hearing air raid sirens and having to take shelter, without even knowing who the enemy is.


Couldn't find anything on /u/. I'd be obliged if you could find it.


I was beginning to wonder if there was something wrong on my end, hopefully it gets put up soon.

I was getting the blank error when posting again, at least this time the site is fucked up and not just my brain.



Why is it always a lone autist that causes this kind of shit?



I don't know much of the details, but I know it was talked about a bit in /animu/'s meta thread. Someone was upset over the vol/NO and threatened to ruin the board or something.


I'm worried about that too, but wouldn't they just shut it down rather than DDoS?



I did see a halfchan drama thread on /u/, but I didn't read through it and I don't know if it's related. It was apparently bad enough to get anchored though.



Might be the Kirino fag sperging out again.



Was it supposed to be halfchan's /u/? Why would anyone talk about them here?



Didn't it just pass congress and still need to pass senate or some other stuff?

Besides, they'd probably just shut it down like >>414482 said. Or at least get clowdflare's cooperation before DDOSing to do some serious damage.

As of yet it's not affecting 8ch seriously, thanks to cloudflare's protection, so I'd say it's safe to say it's just some autist.


Here's the link to the thread.


It seems to be one of those "let's open the dumpster to laugh at the trash" threads.

It's funny sometimes, but I didn't think I'd see it over at /u/.



Anon, where have you been living for the past few years? Literally every time some toilet-scrubber on some cuckchan board bans discussing something, or takes down a thread for no reason they suddenly flood to 8chan and shit the whole equivalent board(s) on 8ch up with their obnoxious, reddit-tier behaviour and general disregard for what is acceptable here or not. Sometimes it even spreads across multiple boards.



It's strange how /u/ has so many enemies. Then again, their policy of not letting trannies turn it into a blogpost board and the whole business of telling dynasty scans to fuck off netted them a fair share of enemies.



I wish people started bullying the halfchan rapefugees that came after the GG exodus.

90% of the site is just shitposters and other retards that weren't bullied enough. It's been long past the point of no return.

I don't get it, what about that thread indicates that someone was gonna DDoS the site. I skimmed through it so I might be missing something.

The whole board is, even /v/ has gotten worse somehow.

We're being raided, flooded by halfchan and now even the governmment is threatening to shutting us down as the board get's Ddose'd.

The whole drama with /cow/ is likely one of the reasons as well.

Nothing but cuckchan crossposters nowadays and the vols can't step up their game.



The media usually keep/a/ clean of the stuff and /2hu/ has no equivalent board, so I tend to forget about it.



The meidos, rather. Damn autocorrect.

Pretty much and it's a sad state of affairs that the people trying to stop these retards from becoming the majority are being banned.



Yeah, one crazy on their forums demanded the mods warn them for a one-off übermench-joke on an old credits page and delete the offending page. Then, when the mods talked about agreeing to do so, tried to change the story to /u/'s logo being problematic and thus demanding all pages with it also be deleted.

Mods played favorites during discussions and in the end /u/ pulled all their stuff, leaving dynasty's forums whining about /u/ being hateful and overreacting.



A new batch of meidos has gotten accepted, so it should get better.



>I wish people started bullying the halfchan rapefugees that came after the GG exodus.

The extent to which shitposting is becoming a defining aspect of chan culture is absolutely disastrous, and it's these peoples' fault entirely. It has standardized low effort posting in every aspect. I'm not sure what happened to 4chan's user base since the first exodus, but I think it involves a huge influx of redditors tryharding their way into fitting in with the "cool kids" after all the media attention the site has received. There are a lot of mixed ideas about the role of the meidos, but they've done good work preventing this sort of bullshit from infecting our board.




I've been seeing a large influx of shitposters swearing like sailors on par with the exploding vans incident. When called out they go on massive spergouts instead of leaving, this shit wasn't even as bad two months ago as it is now.




That's the thing

They started coming to 8chan 2 months ago and unlike most newfags they refuse to adapt and are extremely aggressive to anyone who calls them out like you stated.



>The extent to which shitposting is becoming a defining aspect of chan culture is absolutely disastrous, and it's these peoples' fault entirely.

A substantial ammount of newfags don't even see shitposting as a bad thing.

They think shitposting is the thing you're supposed to do on an image board.

It has to do with all the /b/ shitposting over the years and people knowing 4chan as "that edgy troll site" you get absolute scum from other normalfag places coming here just to shitpost instead of actually promoting discussion.



>They started coming to 8chan 2 months ago

But why did they suddenly start coming two months ago? I can't think of any reason why there was a sudden increase because there wasn't anything that would cause a mass migration of newfags except for the wedding, but that was nearly half a year ago, and not two months.



Maybe it has to do with Hiro injecting malware into halfchan. How long ago was it when it was discovered?



Cuckchan was temporarily able to post images and Hiroshima removed Legacy Capcha for a Google Botnet Captcha, he's also lately been cracking down on some more shitpost heavy users that then come to 8chan like the pests they are.



It might not even have anything to do with /a/. They just come over here because of stuff mentioned in >>414487 or >>414507

to some other board like /v/ or /pol/ or /whatever/, and then spread from there to virtually every other board they can get their grubby hands on and spread the cancer. So some stuff happening on cuckchan's /mlp/ might trigger crossboard shitposting on /k/ or /a/ or /u/.

Another transmission vector is the Attention Hungry Games. Virtually every peaceful, comfy little low traffic board that I knew of suddenly becomes a massive hub of crossboard shitposting halfchan rejects who can't literally string two sentences toghether that wouldn't put a literal retard to shame once it 'won' the games.



Highly dependent on the board, but yeah, I tend to agree.

More traffic isn't necessarily a good thing.



Exactly. A tightly moderated board like /a/, one with a tightly-knit, solid community of core posters, or a little-known board with a total of 6 posters who've been there since forever is less likely to be affected. But even those have taken a downturn.


Speaking of newfags, there have been some strange posts showing up on /loli/ in the last couple of days. They have weird usernames, and the email field's always filled out. Their grasp of English varies between each one, and they're all rather selfish; necrobumping and demanding pics or loli games. I've banned a couple, but the same names were coming back before their expiration. As much as we need more people there, this isn't the kind of trash I'd want to have around.

I suspect there might be something going on, but I'm not sure what.



>I suspect there might be something going on, but I'm not sure what.

How recent is this?

There's been a shitton of drama wiith politics ecelebs over at /cow/.



I only actively use /a/, so I don't know much about the other boards.

But it's observable that the quality of /a/ temporarily drops at the start of each new season, which I assume is because of crossboarders.


Systems slowly coming back online.

Saw a new post just now. Things seem to be in order once again. For how long, I'm not sure.



About two or three days. Don't know about anything that /cow/ does.



Happenings always attract crossboarders

Always, they get shitpost heavy and are then banned only to come here like >>414487 stated.

This happens with every board.

>About two or three days

Yeah, should be some of the retards from there.

>Don't know about anything that /cow/ does

Posters there started making fun of a retard, retard has a clique, clique and other political skeptic shitters started bringing their braindead fanbase to 8chan.



When 8ch became known as the new big bad place of the internet, 4chan lost some of it's boogeyman status, so normalfags got curious, started carefully approaching and then flooded it once they learned it wasn't that bad and they could browse that safe space and get say they "browse the four channel".

Fast forward a bit, 8ch loses it's boogeyman status because the media shifted from 8chan itself into just gamergate, making braindead normalfags forget about it.

Then you get to a few months ago, two major events happened in half, image posting being blocked and the malware discovery. They needed another place to shitpost and to ask about it, so they went to the second most popular image board that they know and know that is safe: 8chan, and there you have it. They go there, see it's not as scary, start shitposting, users don't fucking bully them, they stay there, most likely still posting on reddit and half at the same time, and quality falls downhill.

Honestly, the malware thing was disgusting. They fucking flooded /tech/ (and also the dead board that is /g/ because retards) with "is it safe?" threads. People told them to fuck off at least and they went full damage control "wow, I just wanted to ask a question, this is why I don't browse this shithole, I'm leaving now. I left. Okay. I'm not here anymore. By the way, is it safe?".

Those retards literally posted "I don't care if it's just adware, I just don't want viruses". It really shows the quality of the place where the refugees come from.

Yeah I was in those threads, spamming Libby to trigger them was pretty funny.



Smug Loli is an /a/ bunker, not an 8chan bunker.

I thought that the majority of them would keep posting on halfchan despite the malware like every other cultural and tech issue that popped up over the past four years like the braindead niggers they are. Can't say that I'm happy at all after hearing this.


The problem with the attention hungry games is that it would have been perfectly fine to have something similar to it back in 2014 to mid 2015 when the majority of anons did not crosspost as it would have allowed smaller boards to get sustainable activity, which was a feature nearly everyone has been saying should be added for as long as I can remember. However nowadays when 8chan barely has a cohesive identity, the events >>414522 mentioned, and can be considered halfchan 2.0, the only thing it does is nearly destroy the small boards that have a population which is almost entirely oldfags. I fucking hate how Codemonkey is pandering to these people.

>once again I leave to come back and find the wake of a shitstorm


If anybody cares, here's Codemonkey's update on what happened from about an hour ago:

>The attack is still ongoing. Our team is now manning defensive stations on 24 hour shift to mitigate the attack's effects until it stops. I've seen a lot of DDOS attacks before, but this one was different from the others.

>If you are a netsec guy, the attack is essentially a fuzz attempt on our posting systems. Someone is looking for a vulnerability in 8chan. Usually fuzz attempts are slow and come in at a trickle to avoid detection. Today's attack strangely was a fuzz attempt in huge numbers and very rapid almost like a tsunami. I've never heard of a fuzz attack on a public service in such huge numbers. It just means that whoever is attacking is either desperate, or a child who doesn't know better. Children dont usually have access to hundreds of thousands of botnet computers though.

>We will continue holding down the fort and maintaining defensive positions to respond to any changes in the attacker's patterns. If the attack manages to take the site down again, please know that we have a team of about half a dozen people working tirelessly to get everything back online so everybody can continue posting.

It was the tomo-chan that did it in. The last post before 8chan died was in the tomo-chan thread. Even across the world and even in death fumita will find a way to fuck with us.



I will forever despise this man for all his evils.
