So this is how 8chan dies? Anonymous 09/27/2019 (Fri) 12:08:38 [Preview] No. 10675
Based off of Hotwheels recent tweets it looks like 8chan is a dead issue.

Odilitime? Balrog? Any comments?

It would be nice to see what other owner/operators have to say about this epic.

With all due caution given the source of the information. HW may be misinterpreting, being overly hopeful of 8chan's demise.
Might be better to hold off until there is an official announcement.

According to them, Ron is planning a replacement.

Ron did tweet about a "Project Odin" which I'm assuming is referring to the new imageboard, and would definitely account for the multiple missed deadlines in getting the goddamned thing back up. Pandering to Q circlejerkers will backfire, though. One of 8ch's biggest boards they might have been, but they're not enough to have an adequately-sized website without it being a hole-in-the-wall like 8ch used to be before /pol/ and /v/ migrations.

There's trust issues now as well; people DO NOT want Hotwheels associated with 8ch after what he did with it in the final months of his ownership of it. Suddenly after months of on-and-off complaining about what 8ch had become he's associated with the new project and very excited about it, making sure to be one of the first to tweet about 8ch being dead and never coming back? Get fuckin' real, Fred, people trust you as far as they can throw you.

According to Hotwheels, who is the only one saying anything. I don't have any particular reason to assume Hotwheels is lying. That said, with all his previous spiel of how he is not associated with the ownership and operation of 8chan, plus his constant calls for 8chan's demise, I can't understand why people are taking what he says now like an official spokesman.

We may be getting the gist of the matter, but I suspect there are a few big surprises in store as well.

It's all speculation at this point. I don't care about a chan/forum/image-board (or whatever the hell kind of system they're planning) dedicated to Qanon. I would like to know what happens to all the other boards and communities 8chan hosted. Are they planning to dump them all? Just the controversial ones?

Anyway, it would be nice to hear from our own admin guys. They do have good insights on these matters, even if it is only Enchan-centric. I understand though if they want to hold off on any commentary for a few more days given the lack of anything officially announced. It's too easy to fall into speculation with only one source crowing away.

Yea, I saw that last night and stopped what I was working on to get as some info.

8chan with the infinity was a great brand. I kind of felt the community helped refine it. I wish they would continue with it. Their enemies can smell weakness and it seems like they're not standing up here but I really don't know the problems they face.

Just like they renamed 2ch, they'll rename 8ch. I hope and think they'll launch with the same software and look.

If you look at Sushicoin, I wouldn't put much faith into Odin.

Yea, Hotwheels is the one communicating right now, CodeMonkey/8chan have gone silent in a time IMHO, they should be talking and communicating.

I really like CodeMonkey and I think he has some good ideas but with Hotwheels being the one sharing information, it's kind of hard not to be biased.

I just want things to go back to normal for 8chan.

>Are they planning to dump them all
Assuming the cripple is involved, at the very least /pol/ is going to be gone (or, quite possibly, turned into /leftypol/ by the admin's iron fist).
At the very least I'm not going to be on any site run by that guy. He sold out the imageboard community for goodboy points with the MSM.

Phatwheels has gone all in on being all out. According to him the reason for the meeting was so they could secure permission for using (or not using) his name on the new site. The software license for some part of the Infinity blob apparently requires mentioning his name.
Knowing Fred's hostility to 8chan, and his potential hostility to anything else associated with it, Jim's crew appear to be—surprise, surprise—just being polite. Or, maybe, they merely want to silence a noisy critic by offering him a way to disassociate from the new venture with a licensing exception. Or, it's all just free publicity signifying nothing. Etcetera.
Wait and see.

Are you guys really going to give them another chance?
Are you really lining up to be screwed again?

I would personally try to avoid anything associated with them

Only in it for /tg/, I hope there's a home for them on Odin. 8ch was the first time /tg/ felt like /tg/ since the mid-late 2000s, 4chan's /tg/ is and probably always will be an uninspired dumpster-fire ever since mods decided they had to stick their fingers in its pie.

I'd assume it's the traditional games board correct? Things like Warhammer 40k and normal discussions about it?

If so, maybe try making a board here and get other users to follow you here. Lots of good boards migrated here already.

>Totally not transgender. Right? Guys?
Well, /tg/ did involve wanting to be the little girl, in a certain sense, once upon a time.

Endchan's original version of /tg/ is an object lesson in how not to do it. Once, a long long time ago, the board was, and was quite slow and struggling. It puttered along as most Endchan boards did around that time. There wasn't much for the BO to do in this situation, so things drifted along. Someone else stepped up to the plate as BO and knew the situation would not resolve itself without extreme changes. So they took over. Step one was obvious, WE MUST HAVE A BOARD JUST LIKE ALL THE REST! So, they added rules, rules, rules, and more rules. The boards user base gasped and fell flat. Oh. Maybe we need just cut one rule and keep the rest?

Endchan /tg/ went tits up and never recovered.

Presumably, you don't have a preexisting group willing to make this their port of call. That means you need to grow the user base completely from scratch. So allow me to crank up the old Victrola and play my broken record posted on many an occasion across many another site.

1. Get an activist BO willing to do all this stupid shit from the start.
1a. They need to understand pacing. Some activity on the board every two to three days is all that is needed from them.
2. Rules: "Follow the global rules." Period. That. Is. It.
2a. You will never compete with "all the rules all the time" versions of /tg/ everywhere else.
2b. If the board is set for SFW, ignore it. Don't mention it, don't offer to spoiler content, don't do anything with that at all. If people bitch about it ignore them. If the site administration bitches about it, tell them to reset the fucking thing back to NSFW where it belongs.
2c. This means you are going to see some elf tits, quests, romancing the cutebold quests, and an occasional XCom Viper cosplaying nurse femdom fan-fiction. That's if you are lucky. If you are not lucky, ALL you will get are people whining for more rules. Ignore them. Press on. Allow the board culture to create and sustain itself.
2d. In summation, real neckbeards will devote an entire weekend gaining encyclopedic knowledge of "The Longest Day" (c. 1980, Avalon Hill) so as to spend four hours on Monday playing one turn. No one willing to build up the board will stick around with more than one rule.
2e. Real neckbeards need something to bitch about. A lack of rules will keep them ecstatic for years.
3. Speaking of traditional wargames, invite people to participate in a let's play of one. That means a thread devoted to a "live" run. Something simple that can be grasped in all of five minutes, or during play itself. Allow me to suggest "Amoeba Wars" (c. 1981, Avalon Hill). You could run it as a sort of quest, with the board as a whole yelling what each player is to do in turn.
4. XCom livestream. The. Original. XCom.
4a. Use a board thread devoted to player lists, suggestions, commentary, etc.
4b. Considering the generous Endchan filesize restrictions you should be able to upload livestream recordings right here to /tg/. Fuck Youtube.
5. Run some other simple, easy to understand livestream games.
6. /tg/ will die without drawing a more general community of Endchan users. Once a week, harass all the other boards to participate in something on /tg/.
7. Likewise, harass Odilitime and Balrog to participate. If you can drag them in once a month for six months /tg/ will take off with or without their further participation.
8. Drag some artists in from wherever you can. However you can.
8a. This isn't optional. You need artists. I'm not sure how to motivate them, but I'm certain how to unmotivate them. You know, rules?
8b. I did warn you to expect elf tits, yes?
8c. A kobold is fine too.

Phatwheels fans, and people with a grudge against Jim are the ones doing the fucking. He's just the front man. For myself, a big piece of the puzzle missing in all this is why is he so motivated to help coordinate and cheer them on. I've heard word Jim is rather sharp in his business practices, but this seems personal.

I saw a purported IRC conversation between him and Steven Lynx recently. My first impression was the conversation never happened. Someone simply wanted to make Fred look like a complete lolcowing nutter. Rereading this along with Fred's twitter feed makes it seem plausible. Fred appeared to be fishing around for more allies, and Stephen Lynx was just being as casual as possible, while striving to slowly back away from the crazy.

At least Moot had the good sense to walk away and stay walked ever after. So did Josh, for that matter.

There's a certain chan user who thrives on all this nonsense. I'm not one of them. May be boring for some, but I'm much happier with the low key drama free style of Odilitime and Balrog.

Recent interview given by Fredrick Brennan: https://invidio.us/watch?v=lFKAE1R-Aos

This is not a transcript. These are my notes on what I picked up from the interview. Please be aware, while I may have made errors in interpreting what was said, the opinions expressed in the notes are not my own. I was trying to summarize, not advocate.

There were five basic questions covered, but the interviewer skipped around a bit.

1. Why did Fred release the doxes?
2. What is Fred's stance on 8chan?
3. What is Fred's stance on Jim?
4. What is Fred's stance on Q?
5. And what about Susucoin?

---Start notes---
Fred fully understands there are degrees of doxing, but if it's already public, it's not doxing. Everything he posted that people are crying foul about is already public information.

Fred stated clearly he is totally in opposition to Jim and 8chan.

Also, Fred does not believe the assertions of who Q claims to be.

Why is he in opposition? 8chan has run its course. The mass shootings were an obvious problem and there was a potential for more due to 8chan. Jim thinks these attacks are all the fault of the deep state, not 8chan. Fred does not believe there is any deep state connection with the attacks. Q was unrelated to all this, it was all about the neo-nazi associated 8chan boards. Fred is not doing this against Q. He is merely trying to stop more attacks.

Fred believes Q is simply a LARPer. Nothing more.

About the susucoin thing. Fred admits to being a pessimist generally, and was down on this whole coin scheme. His major problem was susucoin adds nothing new that other long established cryptocoin systems already offer.

Fred's primary problem with Jim was he was so shady with anything involving money. This shadiness is why Fred quit 8chan.

Fred thinks project Odin is another crypto project scheme like susucoin. Ron has apparently given up on susucoin.

Cryptocoin systems are no longer the playground of amateurs. It's too late into the game. If Ron and Jim are serious about developing a new cryptocoin based system it has to involve real computer science and financial experts being paid real money, and not just Ron flying by the seat of his pants. If Ron is developing it exclusively on his own, then project Odin is just another of Jim's scams.

Assume the deep state exists, and has a problem with Q. If so, the deep state commands more than enough resources to have already done what Fred is doing to stop Jim and 8chan. There is no deep state trying to strike down Q involved here. It's all Fred.
---End notes---

And there you have it.

Now, site meta discussion boards tend to attract a ton of trolling and insanity. While this is not directly Endchan related, it touches on some subjects that any image-board may face. We did once hold a discussion here on /operate/ involving the fate of 16chan and InfinityNext, way back when. Odilitime and Balrog allowed that one to run its course. I thank them for their indulgence, and hope we may find some lessons for us all in this latest of off site debacles.
