Doesn't seem like it, AFAIK it doesn't take anything other than the webring button plugin and that's it, it depends on the admin.
>>32737
You can go to one of the member sites and in the top bar a button should be linking to all the boards, even the ones nobody wants there like 8moe's.

I suppose it's a matter of talking to the admin here and asking the userbase because that's all it takes, for example the webring has 8moe which nobody likes outside their own site yet because they followed the rules for the implementation of plugin they are included... or at least they were forced to follow the correct rules as they modded the plugin to be included in all sites yet in their own they blacklisted certain webring places to avoid board competition.
There's a lot of drama as many hate each other so maybe it's not a wise move at the moment but certainly would give oxygen to the imageboard community.

Pay attention to the small details
>>>/operate/10610
https://endchan.net/operate/res/10610.html

When this first started it was run by malicious people who wanted to monetize the imageboards and destroy others that weren't participants in it. There's a few names that consistently pop up and have been slithering around for years at this point.
I've tried out some boards and I will say there is very high quality discussion within the webring, but at the same time there's a lot of shit as well. I think its not a bad idea for redundancy and having something resistant to de-platforming, but if it ever goes to shit from an influx of halfchanners and plebbitors, then good luck.

I personally wouldn't use it without Tor and JS fully disabled. This goes for all imageboards but these ones especially.

Yes, that happened but as far as i know that was another organization (the so-called Alternative Chan Federation), a would-be webring site entered to check them back in the day (August 2019) and leaked all the reunions seen as a warning. It was a tell tale about a cabal of dudes wanting to control most imageboards to subvert them but after the massive leak it practically fell apart, that's when the current webring idea appeared as even more loose and without interference from anyone, especially those involved there (supposedly, Spacechan was one of them) hence the discomfort between some userbase groups as practically it is so loose many agents they dislike appear on the list.
"Webring" at this point only means a tab that shows a list of "friendly" boards, ideas appeared around moderating what's good or bad but because that practically means someone taking such decisions the idea was kicked out and anybody who complies with the tab's plugin rules can go at it, even some boards with BOs who are suspected to have been part of those ACF reunions.
It is a risk but it is there.
>Isn't Mark one a BO/Admin of one of the sites?
Yes, he has been the most controversial aspect of the community along with some other loon, he was interested at first but discarded it as a bunch of dummies, tons of his userbase got away, begged for an existing board be given to him which was denied, vowed to be the enemy of the webring and now he is currently there while being caught campaigning to get users from other friendly boards.
BO and practically co-admin of 8moe which is a cheap illegitimate "reboot" of the old 8chan place without most of its original users hence the discomfort of most of the other sites in the webring. The other admin is almost a confirmed fed or fed associate, it glows to hell and back and nobody with balls goes there but it is the only one with free board creation, hence why many fall for its siren call (confirming many anons are indeed no-balls).
Many others have asked for them to be expelled for the same reason but because they complied with the plugin (forcefully because at first they didn't) they are allowed, even when their vast catalogue shits the entire tab.

Space_ (or is it _Space?) was shilling his board on here pretty aggressively back in 2019. Its when I wrote pic related (Yep, that's a false flag shitpost I wrote for lulz that people thought was space. He didn't write it but he might as well have). 100% believable he'd be involved in the gay subversion plan.

>It is a risk but it is there.
And all it takes to counter is anons being educated on the state of things. 8chan was pretty good in terms of anons creating infographics to outline Jim's bullshit. People should be using imageboards with top-security anyways.

>Mark
Dude's in cahoots with Jim and the others. I really find it unbelievable that more anons don't know about Sunshine and actual feds on the 8chan global mod team.

>Curious to know what that was back then
Considering how retarded they were to even come up with such an idea, I'd imagine it would probably be some twitter thing.

It was Spacecham and he/they had two other sites which i don't recall the names, Opencham maybe?
>And all it takes to counter is anons being educated on the state of things
Sadly anons, or most of them, have demonstrated since the fall of 8chan (and frankly since the Sunshine-/hebe/-/sp/ saga) that they do not care about being educated on the state of things, they rather ignore the problem and carry on without thinking, which i can somewhat understand in boards centered on escapism but in other places with more grounded discussion around politics or weapons that is unforgettable. This is perplexing taking into account many of them were 4chan exiles, but perhaps most of us/them have been dying out and being replaced by a newer wave which is oblivious.
>Dude's in cahoots with Jim and the others
Was, he has new bad friends now as bad as he or Jim were but his whole "being employed by Jim but not telling anyone" is, i think, past him. Now he probably sells the data to the feds directly with his peer instead of using an intermediary like Jimbo Boy.

WTF? Anybody can setup a new chan anytime, anywhere. You might as well try to control the dialup BBS's 30+ years ago. There were always news ones popping up all over the place, software getting forked, new codebases, running all kinds of different hardware. Even the motherfucking SPA couldn't stop the pirate scene.

Trick is when a new one comes up to spam it, demoralize its few users and when everything fails, post CP and report your own post to the site's ISP citing they are a ring of pervs.
If that also fails then just dox the owner and say the same thing, and every one of these has worked with a bunch of sites and boards.

Don't feel too bad for the dude. The fact the image is believable in the first place is what's important. Shows how much of a fag Space is. If some troll tried the same thing with Odilitime it would pretty quickly fail.

Best we can do then is just create infographics that any ol' retard on the boards can eat up. They're more appealing with big bold letters and pictures and are pretty damn easy to distribute too. I've done this with a few other sites.


Anonymous 03/06/2021 (Sat) 20:35:04 [Preview] No.32893 del
Apparently, it requires javascript to view. Ho hum.
Anyway, the concept of a webring comes up short on delivery for site owners just as its conceptual namesakes did in the 1990s. And, for the same reasons. It won't capture or captivate any more users than are gained from plain old shilling.
Shilling or no, I suspect most newbie users hear about an imageboard by word of mouth and come to it that way. Later, they gain the understanding of how to search out different sites on their own, without recourse to a webring. At best you get an occasional driveby from someone clicking in and having a look around, but there are still more efficient ways to find a specific imageboard to be interested in.
Participate? Seems harmless, but not useful either. I don't think Endchan should participate, but I don't object to such should the admins choose to.

It's real. Not fake at all. I was in the thread when it happened. Unless you are the sp--cechan mod

You mean that organization that's 100% real and even worked with with Robi from Julay world?

Don't get hung up on the hardware, it's just a random BBS pic. A text BBS doesn't need a fast ethernet card, so I don't know why they're using that, if that's what's plugged in there (a simple RS-232 adapter would suffice). Anyway you can run a 300-2400 baud dialup BBS if that's your thing. I had a video of some C64 running a real dialup BBS over old school modem, but I lost it, and I'm too lazy to go searching right now. Also yeah I don't mind telnet for playing MUDs and door games. I'm not sending my bank account over this.

Why not just "allow" new image boards to come up and have a chance to become communities or not on their own merits? Your tactics of knee-jerk spamming CP and reporting to ISPs makes you sound like some kind of little-napolean control freak fucktard. Why should being an asshole be the default action to take when it comes to anyone trying to put up a new board?

It's the american feds, it's their work to have everything under a single site to make things work easier when surveilling their citizens talking about special things.
