Just remembered this place existed, thanks to the DMCA fuckery.
So, how are you doing, anons?
Why are muscle girls so fucking cute?
>So, how are you doing, anons?
Smug as usual.
Am I missing something? You aren't referring to the KF fiasco, are you?

No, that was shit, but it was outside the board. I'm talking about the tower girls thing, the TL;DR is
>someone starts making a tower girl game
>opens a patreon for it
>suddenly shoves NTR and cucking into the game claiming it isn't NTR because the girl is not married to you yet
>anons get mad
>/hgg/ anons start making a fork of the game without degeneracy
>aons posts some rips of the game(mostly default RPG maker stuff and stolen assets towerfag claims are "not stolen because I didn't use them in the game") along with someone pictures from the towerfag's blog
>towerfag email jim with a literal "this is DMCA, I own everything, delete this now. - Towerfag" email
>Jim personally permabans the anon, deletes all pics by that IP manually, even the unrelated ones and OC
>anons get pissed and make a meta thread explaining that the DMCA was invalid, the pictures are fair use and that most of the pics deleted weren't even towerfag's
>Jim disappears and only official post in the thread is codemonkey's "w-we don't want to get sued"
>two days later anons forget about it and go on as usual
>jim still missing and codemonkey hasn't posted since
Oh, that DMCA fuckery. I was only thinking in the context of /a/. I've only been watching the drama in passing, since there's really not a whole lot I can contribute to the deal, but still have a vague interest because I remember watching the threads on half/tg/ many, many moons ago and thinking a vidya would be pretty nice. Why are there so many monkey's paws just lying around for idiots to pick up these days?
>So, how are you doing, anons?
Pretty good. Finally became a NEET shut-in and cut ties with a lot of bad people. The few people I keep in touch with online have been really great during this whole mess.

Hope I can get some sweet dreams about Meiling. It's been too long since I last saw her and I could really use her encouragement.
Spoiler for blogspost.
Same. It fucking sucks because it cockblocked me out of my driver license this month. Like everything government run, the cunts wants to milk every penny out of you, so they took my shyness for "depression" and now I'll have to go to psychiatrist and then pay another 500 bucks to be able to retake the psychological test. Being a third world fucktard sucks
I'm making a porn hydrus, but I haven't tagged shit as of yet. I'm pretty sure there are more muscle girl pics, but these are the only tagged ones.
We don't need to spoiler nipples, right?
It's been a while since I've posted lewds, so I can't remember the rule. Sorry meidos.

boy with boobs are disgusting burp
I'm doing alright. On a different note, can I hijack this thread to ask if /a/'s been compromised? I've noticed a significant decrease in the strictness of meidos over the last couple weeks compared to when I was browsing /a/ half a year ago.
>/a/'s been compromised?
That depends on what you understand for compromised. From an optimist point of view, not really, there are just some factors that have led foreign users to make a few shit posts and things will be fine again soon.
From the negative perspective, which I happen to share and I think it's more objective, 8/a/ is always compromised. The very reason being that there is absolutely no way to prevent users from other boards, and given 8chan's more or less steady increase in popularity, from other sites to come and try to do as they please. Of course, they can be stopped once they have already started, sometimes even immediately thanks to the meidos, but this comes with a limitation, that there needs to be a rule violation or a shady enough behavior to justify removal. The first case in many occasions needs to be accompanied by a report so that the meidos can see them if they happen to be in a thread they don't use, and in the second case it only applies to very specific cases such as raids, spam or the necrobumping in the last months.
>I've noticed a significant decrease in the strictness of meidos over the last couple weeks compared to when I was browsing /a/ half a year ago.
Like I mentioned, the meidos only seem to act on the cases of rule violation, that also need to be reported, or specific cases based on a negative repeated behavior. What I've noticed, and I've seen other anons mention it on /ameta/ as well, is that unlike those conditions, what there is on /a/ right now is a steady decrease in the quality and effort of the posts being made, which does not fall into either category.
So what comes next is either wait for this situation to pass, assuming it will pass, just like getting through a cold with a part of /a/ being uncomfortable yet unable to do anything or retake ye olde debate about whether commitment, adaptation and respect for the board is something that should be enforced by the moderation rather than self moderated by the users, which has always strongly leaned towards the second choice.
>there are just some factors that have led foreign users to make a few shit posts
This has certainly been the case for the past few days at least, what with rapefugees wandering about as a result of the NeoFAG happening.
I've always just reported obvious rule-breaking newfags and the meidos usually take care of it quickly. For people who are obviously just wastes of a post or otherwise don't conform to the standards of discussion, ignoring them or effortposting in response to someone else keeps things comfy. Derailing a thread to call someone a complete fucking faggot only works in edge cases where they're being a gargantuan semen-gargling cunt.
>the meidos only seem to act on the cases of rule violation
I feel like I've been having to spam report just to get anything done. Rule breaking posts have been left up for over 12 hours with nothing being done and it's fucking infuriating.
I honestly stopped bothering. I realize what I thought was "love" for the board was merely a one sided obsession. The users more than the meidos are blinded by peace.
Sure, you can always turn of the fire after many have already burned to death and much has been lost, but at least I think it's better that the fire doesn't start in the first place.
This is incredibly sad. I can't believe it's a positive sign when an anon stops caring for their board.
It's not that I stopped caring for the ideal /a/. It's just that the state of the current /a/ is far beyond what I can do. I honestly feel my efforts are not welcome by the current anons anymore, even though I wish for nothing else than a proper userbase based on what /a/ really is, but if for years that same people I'm trying to save turns against me, I really don't know what to do anymore, other than to let them crash against the same evil I have grown tired of warning them against.
Please keep fighting the good fight. I'm sure there are more than just us and we're just silent.
From my experience there no such thing as silent, only not compromised or unaware.
Regardless, I made a Kumamiko lyrics edit for /a/ after the ideal /a/, it's in romaji though

I appreciate it, even if it's from you alone.
Always remember that there's at least one more anon who thinks the way you do.
You're not alone in your thinking. Some of us just lurk more than others is all.
This is why I never thought just reporting shitposting would be a viable way to keep the quality on /a/ high. To be fair though I am glad the meidos don't go outside of posts that break the specific rules as it could lead to an abuse of authority, I do wish that they would go after posts that do violate the rules without waiting for a report. As for the posters that are add nothing of value, the only thing we can do is ignore sadly.
>I honestly feel my efforts are not welcome by the current anons anymore
Do you have any strong basis for believing this? Most anons still seem to care about the quality of the board, but I will say that last week had been slightly lower than average. If anything people have grown more apathetic to 8chan as a whole, and not /a/ specifically.
I keep thinking about abstaining from posting on 8ch altogether and moving here for my /a/ fix, but I'm not sure how the medios would like that, seeing as this is the official bunker. It would also be a pretty lonely commitment to only post here and I've lost much of my strength from trying to grow other small boards outside of 8ch. At least KFist has started doing r/a/dio on here, albeit with a sticky on the 8th.
>abstaining from posting on 8ch altogether and moving here for my /a/ fix
To be honest that is what I think a lot of /a/nons will start to post here on the bunker more over the course of the next few months since 8chan has lost most of its glory. However, I don't think the bunker will get a sustainable population of sorts until either May or July next year so a migration won't be happening for a long time.
>May or June next year
That's an oddly precise time frame you're suggesting.
Done. I'm using bunker 100% come may next year. I'll try and ween myself off 8/a/ in the meantime. The only problem is that most of the threads I frequent are already very slow on 8ch.
The idea seems more attractive by the second honestly. I feel 8/a/ is becoming more 8chan than /a/ itself like it was before. The post don't look like posts from little girls, the discussion in less /a/ related every time I open a thread.
I, sadly, have to agree with you. It seems that more and more /a/ is becoming /b/ or /v/ but with an anime theme.
At times it feels like that. Especially when the off topic shit flinging begins in some threads. I rarely venture outside /a/ so I can't tell where outsiders are coming from, only that they are present.
Two boards come to mind, and it feels like they haven't lurked enough to get a feel for /a/ compared to the boards they came from originally.
It's been looking more and more lately like /a/ is being allowed to be overrun by crossboarders and shitposters because the meidos are becoming lax on moderation.
>meidos are becoming lax on moderation.
This seems, unfortunately, too true. The current collage thread illustrates that point perfectly.
File: 1512348551978.jpg (148.82 KB, 1366x768, 683:384, alice to zouroku unfortuna….jpg)
It's sad that the collage thread was allowed to be sullied like that. Even thought it seems it was cleaned, for the time it took I'm guessing it was a reaction to certain quota of reports and complains in the thread. It's like the meidos are letting wild dogs wonder into /a/ near lolis and only reacting when the dogs bite a loli. This isn't the image of tender protection I used to get on /a/.
I also remember there was zero moderation in the wedding thread.
That brings back bittersweet memories. However I think the main issue was that thread was that it was advertised the globally so that just attracted shitposters from every corner of the site. Moving to smug might mean a less active board overall however I think we'd be somewhat insulated against the evil that is present throughout 8ch.
I'm chalking what happened in the collage thread up to bad luck and that the meido on-call was busy with something and didn't expect a derail like what happened to occur. It usually doesn't take 2 hours for obvious shitposting like that to go on.
The worst part about the collage thread was that anons were replying to the derailers instead of not responding at all. The worst part is this isn't the first time I've seen something like this happen with anons taking the bait since it happened in the rewatch thread with the schizo who thought every girl was a secret whore, and the first Nagatoro thread, but I'm not sure if it was an actual anon arguing against the guy who thought it was NTR. To make matters even worse all of these incidents happened within one fucking month of each other, and the overall quality of /a/ has been going down at a constant rate ever since the thread that started the meido applications since March. There needs to be a serious solution to this bullshit fast otherwise /a/ becomes a true shell of what it used to be.
>The current collage thread illustrates that point perfectly.
Just looking through the waifus posted and the ones that appeared in the last smug stream, theres several new faces. This alone is not a bad thing as new users will appear over time. The new faces combined with posts like pic related make it extremely obvious theres a growing number of users with bad posting habits. Further posts like these seem to be accepted without second thought. The whole letter to tsukumizu is getting out of hand but thats a different discussion
We may look back and say that was the beginning of the end. I'll apply to be a meido and hopefully put a drill through some shitters before letting another board die.
I don't like pumping out reports but would bringing threads or posts to the meidos attention by reporting help to decrease them? It seems like something that needs to be addressed now.
>I'll apply to be a meido and hopefully put a drill through some shitters
I wouldn't be so sure, if it's not already being addressed my guess is that the meidos don't see a problem in the first place.
I know that I used to report a lot and honestly when you spend more time reporting that posting /a/ and at best only a third of those reports go through it gets really exhausting.
>The whole letter to tsukumizu is getting out of hand but thats a different discussion
I just caught up with that. What a cluster. I can understand wanting to send a letter of support to an author but the way it is being written, along with advertising where the letter comes from, just reeks of newfag.
>I'll apply to be a meido and hopefully put a drill through some shitters before letting another board die.
The meidos are, in general, content with the way things are and don't want someone coming in and being ban happy. They would prefer this status quo rather than /ameta/ flaring up with angry shitposters.
> when you spend more time reporting that posting
I know this feeling. I'm probably on a 2:1 ratio of reports to posts.
>The meidos are, in general, content with the way things are and don't want someone coming in and being ban happy. They would prefer this status quo rather than /ameta/ flaring up with angry shitposters.
That's unfortunate. If I ever became a meido, I would be so hard on shitposters that they would love the current meidos for how merciful and allowing they are.
>If I ever became a meido, I would be so hard on shitposters that they would love the current meidos for how merciful and allowing they are.
I speak from experience in saying that you'd be dumped as a meido.
Why? I just want to purge shitposters and crossboarders so thoroughly that it becomes impossible for them to stay on /a/.
Probably because shit disturbers are not smiled upon in general.
Because, "the meidos are, in general, content with the way things are and don't want someone coming in and being ban happy. They would prefer this status quo rather than /ameta/ flaring up with angry shitposters."
So what do we do then? Just let /a/ slowly stagnate as the unwashed hordes creep in?
Report and ignore. The rest is up to the meidos. We can always move here which is free from crossboarding shitposters.
Keep posting and setting a good example. Report everything out of place. Coming here will not really solve the problem since every smug stream everyone comes here and sooner or later they will notice other threads. Its a start though.
If the stream wasn't direct linked and just had something like "check the bunker for stream details" it would assist in stemming influx.
That creeping is not seen as a problem, there is little to be done that isn't prolonging the outcome.
/a/ never was this high brow elite place where only the highest levels of discussion was allowed. If you think that then you are delusional.
I don't think you understand what's being discussed in this thread. By the image you posted you think people are complaining about posts based on their form, but the aspect that I see deteriorated is the essence of said posts. I would love for /a/ to have funposting threads like those again, born from an /a/ related source, made by /a/nons, directed at /a/nons and meant to be enjoyed on /a/. Sadly, that previously common base as /a/ keeps getting weaker and more displaced, where the /a/ factor stops being the core and becomes an accessory instead.
Also, to clarify the context of your image, a lot of 4chan boards didn't exist by 2007, among them the boards dedicated to specific aspects of being a normalfag and/or failed normalfag.
>I would love for /a/ to have funposting threads like those again
How do I describe these feelings? I really am a displaced anon, driven from my home through some kind of cruel gentrification, accosted by shitposters wherever I go.
What exactly are these? Normalfags that were rejected and are too proud to become anything else so they strive to be the most normalfag out of their group of losers?
Sounds about right, yes.
Not quite. Failed normalfags are people who weren't accepted into normalfag circles, so they take a contrary identity, not by choice, but as a reaction to that rejection. The key aspect is that they never stop identifying and longing for the normalfag values and can even look down on aspects and behaviors of the group they are participating in.
>mods leave up yet-another olympics western politics this is the death of anime thread that isn't about anime or manga and only an excuse for crossboarders to invade /a/
I think I'm going to be looking at bunker more now, it doesn't seem like they care about /a/ anymore.
This has been happening so often lately that I'm starting to suspect there's some group out there making a concentrated effort to shit up /a/.
I want that thread and the deteriorating mess called the loli thread deleting already. Tewi has at least started to reorganize the loli board so let Tewi deal with the shitters. I've been here several times per day hoping more will show up here.
I think 4/a/ is trying to get in. Someone was asking why wasn't there a smug or radio stream last weekend which is the calling card for halfchan users.
>I want that thread and the deteriorating mess called the loli thread deleting already.
The problem with THAT thread is how /a/ has had that conversation so many fucking times that we already know how it's going to proceed, most of the conversations made in those types of thread are nothing more than paranoia. While the meidos aren't around all the time whenever they notice a thread about how loli is being banned, and the faggots that keep bringing it up have to realize if Japan was able to keep their culture mostly intact after the occupation, then they can survive the Olympics. I can't really comment on the loli thread other than the few off-topic posts are annoying and that future precautions should be taken on future threads.
>I've been here several times per day hoping more will show up here.
While smuglo.li has been bringing more /a/not over here for the past couple of weeks, like the new manga thread and buyfag thread, I don't think a lot /a/nons will come over unless the site is down for maintenance. The problems are getting to the point where I wouldn't be surprised if an exodus is organized in a few months, but I'm not entirely sure if it will occur myself.

>where I wouldn't be surprised if an exodus is organized in a few months, but I'm not entirely sure if it will occur myself.
Not to be a pessimistic fag, but I doubt there will be one.
Fucking /b/ used to be fun back in the exodus, now it's just like half's was before the exodus. The quality of the site has deteriorated to the point where everyone acknowledges it, people actively bitch about the lack of quality threads, yet no one wants to leave.
Half chan's exodus happened because of outrage over the lack of trust in the mods. 8 has had enough moments where it showed admins didn't care a bit about the comunity, but people just brush it aside. I'm not sure exactly why that happens, maybe it's the "at least it's not 4chan" mentality or the alternative image boards are shills which is true, to a point, maybe the people who care left long ago. Thing is, an exodus in a "large" scale won't happen unless at least a whole board worth of anons decide enough is enough.
Personally, I've been making an active effort to browse 8ch less and less because of the community and administration, but I still go back every once in a while for boards I haven't found an alternative yet, such as /loomis/.
File: 1513119437011.jpg (186.1 KB, 850x1176, 425:588, __akiyama_mio_k_on_drawn_b….jpg)
I've started to post here and am trying to make it more active. Also the only reason I go on to 8chan anymore is because of /u/ since it is one of the only boards where the mods are decent and they put in an effort to make their board better. Though I also doubt there will be an exodus since people think that as long as it isn't all shit, there isn't a reason to leave or they think 8chan is still good.
I'm getting more and more data points suggesting that there is a shitposter(s) specifically trying to shit up /a/ by bringing up olympics as often as they can. Even though it's 3dpd normalfag shit and has nothing to do with anime or manga, it seems like a fracture point they are using to try to induce crossboarders and non /a/ discussion on /a/. I can't believe that it's just a coincidence that we get an "anime/manga/hentai is dead lets talk about olympics" thread every few weeks, and that derailing in other threads is very effectively done by bringing up the same topic.
I saw that more and more people don't use proper grammar at all, and almost none of the posts get deleted by the meido, unless they break a different rule. It got frustrating and is one of the reasons I am shying away form 8/a/ and staying here.
File: 1513133889533.jpg (126.36 KB, 850x1200, 17:24, sample_ae0c31b312d39e81bdc….jpg)
The thing is, is that even though Japan will easily recover I hope after the Olympics. The shitposters will find something else to latch onto that they claim "isn't shitposting" and the mods will let them go through with it. I know this is pretty pessimistic, but I think that 8/a/ is pretty much lost, since unless the meido's really pick up the pace more shitposters will flood in. The only thing I hope for is that they remove our bunker from the rules so they don't get us here too. The situation might not turn out as bad, but I would rather take precautions than pay the price for thinking we are safe, when we clearly deal with shitposters on a daily basis who get away with shitposting. Also sorry since this probably just sounds like rambling and me repeating myself over and over again.
It's okay anon, that's what bunkers are for, they're places where little girls can be safe. Also, your images a cute.

I know I just don't want our bunker to fall with everything else so all of the remaining anon's just scatter.
>you images are cute
I would imagine they would be very pleasant after a cold winter day, not so sure about a hot summer though.
>I saw that more and more people don't use proper grammar at all, and almost none of the posts get deleted by the meido
It seems proper grammar is kind of an way to tell the quality of a board. Good grammar doesn't mean much, but bad grammar being allowed always means the place either is shit or is going in that direction.
Even as a flithy sudaca I've always liked grammar rules, because it forces me to learn the language and things I didn't know about. People who complain about grammar rules are always low quality shitposters.
It seems kotatsus are like a ball of heat in the same of a table, plus Japan gets cold enough that it snows and house insulation is inexistent.
I imagine it feels like tucking yourself in warm bed after a really cold day, except better and comfier.
Sadly I think you guys might be right about an exodus not happening in the future, but I still hope that it will happen since /a/ is going to the point where shitposting is getting too prevalent. and I don't think that the meidos are going to be able to fix it. They obviously can't monitor /a/ 24/7 so some shitposts are going to slip by unnoticed, but there should be little reason for reports to not go through for up to three hours. It also doesn't help that 8chan is dying a slow painful death with smaller boards getting destroyed by newfags or awful moderation, along with /v/ and /pol/ becoming halfchan colonies. I just don't want /a/ to go down with the ship.
>The situation might not turn out as bad, but I would rather take precautions than pay the price for thinking we are safe
That is a valid concern, and other /a/not have said that the bunker should be removed from the rules ever since the downtime in April and Codemonkey almost brought the entire site over. I don't want the bunker to be treated as a sacred place that can't be defiled as the increase of shitposting on /a/ is able to happen despite the strict rules and crossborders being told to fuck off constantly.
>repeating myself over and over again.
We've been repeating ourselves for nearly two weeks on how to deal with shitposters gaining more ground on /a/, so there is no problem if you are repeating yourself. Different solutions to it should be taken into account though since I've been saying that we can't rely on reporting and the meidos 100% of the time for a while now.
File: 1513192052937.png (946.03 KB, 1366x768, 683:384, amanchu fun things are fun.png)
Just keep in mind that the bunker is a place for little girls to take it easy and have fun. Any specific discussion regarding 8/a/ still needs to be made on /ameta/.
Or what about that one dope who kept trying to force threads on the Alita remake? Maybe the same shitter? At least the mods dealt with that.
Do the meidos even go there and read anything seriously?
>bunker should be removed from the rules
I'm still shocked it is there and the April debacle even happened. Radio threads get posted site wide occasionally which is repulsive.
>Do the meidos even go there and read anything seriously?
Yes, they are actually quite respondent and helpful to /a/ posters making requests. The meidos put my shinobu donut banner on /a/ after I made a thread on /ameta/ asking
Then are they saying anything about this current deluge of shit we're being beset with on full/a/?
So far not to my knowledge. They left up that shitpost olympics thread the other day and eventually had to delete it, after initially keeping it up.
In other news, the Fire Punch thread on 8/a/ is about to slide off the catalog after nearly nine months. Just an interesting tidbit.
Fire Punch was a horrible manga, though it was fun seeing anon's reactions.

I just saw that animebytes is accepting new applications. I don't know if it is going to be worth the trouble to get into it since I already have a really high ratio of 0.82. But it seems like there is no point in doing when there are public tracker available, that have had all the series that I wanted. They also don't accept VPN's either so it seems like using nyaa is a better alternative than going through all that work for animebytes.
It's usually a good idea to have as many options as possible. I sent my application anyways even though I know I won't use it as intensively as other people might.
I might as well just send one then, but waiting for it to open up again will be a hassle. But I doubt I will get in, though I hope I can at least send in an application. for it.
I've heard conflicting things about the VPN; they won't even let you submit an application if you're on a VPN and that you have to use clearnet everytime you're on the site but you can seed/leech with a VPN. I submitted an application just find with my VPN on but apparently some have ran into issues so I don't understand exactly what's going on. Might as well try your luck.
Okay, but if there are only 10 submissions at a time is the best way to send one in just clicking refresh over and over and over until the submission screen pop's up?
I pre-wrote my answers and did exactly that. I'm sure there are thing out they that could alert you to a change on the page but I'm not savvy enough.
>got into animebytes
>tfw account got blocked for lack of use and I forgot the username
I don't even know the questions so I will just have rely on my typing skills, and I don't know how to do that either so I will just keep refreshing and I don't want to use the new firefox so I can't use any of the good add-on's for that sort of thing.
That really sucks anon, I hope you find your username written down somewhere and you can get back in.

They added a few more, I think, but this should give you a good starting point.
I never write shit down though.
It seems the questions haven't changed much since I applied. I don't remember 7 and 8, but maybe it's just my memory being shit.
Anyway, I just pretty much answered "I like animay and nip music, like X and Y. I plan on seeding stuff for as long as I keep it on my HD." and got accepted.
Just say you'll seed and name a couple shows and bands and you should be good.
You should use a password manager.
Looks like they merged all the definition questions into one.
Thanks for this anon, I will just plan out my response while I wait.
>i never write stuff down
That is bad practice if you are doing something like signing up for a private torrent site anon.
Do you think it is safe to say I saw animebytes mentioned on 8/a/ or should I just say I saw it while browsing through places to torrent anime, because both are true. Sorry if this is a shitty question.
I just said imageboard for that question.
I doubt they would care, though I don't know what they might think of 8chan. I said I saw it on most of the anime related sites I use, even though the only one I use is /a/. I just figured they might like to see that I use plenty of sites.
>writing stuff down
For some reason I'm paranoid of that stuff. I did write my encryption key, back when I had it, but I used kana and Cyrillic and roman letters, as well as kanji for every two numbers.
Keepassx is great and I won't let a bad word be said about it.

Thanks, I just said "I found out about AnimeBytes through an Imageboard that discusses anime and other Japanese forms of media." Also I why did you use that level of security for writing something down. The point is that it is harder for people to get a hold of since it is physically on your person and not in a digital format that can be easily replicated. Now that I have the answers it is time to stake out animebytes to try to submit my form.
>he doesn't use apple password manager

I did it /a/, I sent my submission. The definition questions were separated and there was a question about the client you used, but other than that it was all according to >>410804 chart. Thanks for the help anons. Now I am gonna watch some anime until I get a response.
Make sure to check your email and the site tomorrow, I just got my response after about a day.
I will check my email probably every hour until I go to sleep.
Good luck. I just got my acceptance through! Seems like using VPN is ok since I applied under VPN and everything went well.
They don't want you to browse the site on a VPN unless you let them know, according to their rules though they don't care if you torrent on a VPN though thank goodness.
I just sent them a PM, as per the rules, to make sure using a VPN is ok. If they say no shit will be hard as everything I do on this computer is under a VPN.
I believe you can torrent on a VPN, but you just aren't able to sign up under one.
If anyone is interested, this is the type of question's that I was asked when signing up.
I signed up under one fine. Maybe I should have just kept my mouth shut.
>get accepted into AB
Is AB down for anyone else right now?
It happened for a short time for me when I just got it, but as of right now everything seems to be up and running.
I've just been accepted have also been reminded of my old distain for forums.
Mine went through as well.
I just made one post so I could get some points to try to even out my ratio, since none of the stuff I am seeding has any leechers, which I find to be the main problem with private trackers. Though that isn't a bad thing since people are always seeding, but it is hard to keep up a good ratio if you are new.
I vague remember finishing season 1 of that show. It was pretty entertaining. Did it get a season 2 and is it worth watching?
S1 was cute 12 year old relationships between Hanabi and Takao. S2 is the same, but it expands on Hiyama being best boy and protecting Aoi's smile with some double date scenes in some episode. In essence they're the same, but I though the relationship between Hiyama and Aoi in S2 was more interesting to watch and follow than the main couple in S1. In both seasons the Shinbun club and Cocoa are still up to their antics.
I still found the story more engaging than the usual shoujo drama.
I tried to make myself connectable so that I'd get leechers connecting to me, but no dice following the guide. I think it's because I have an odd setup—instead of a wireless card in my computer, I tether my phone, reconnecting the phone every time I turn on the computer.
>tether my phone
I did that once, and I still got seeders, but that was on nyaa. Your best bet would be to download and seed torrents that seem like they will be popular right as they come out, so that when people come to download them you are able to seed it.
I downloaded the Made in Abyss batch because I wanted to play the long game. I'll try what you said as well.
It is probably worth a try, though I haven't gotten many seeders yet, your best bet to get a good ratio would be to make your own torrents and upload them.
wasnt this supposted to be a muscle girl thread? c-can we please have some more. i like muscle girls…
Muscles are not the same as immortality. Living alone in a forest will make you strong but nothing like Yuugi's appearance. Or MoF Marisa
I agree that I wouldn't consider Mokou a muscle girl, Yuugi on the other hand, very much so.
She might be toned, but I wouldn't call her a muscle girl. Though toned also looks good.
If there is a god please let me die by getting my head crushed between the thighs of an Oni.
