The other thread ( http://nanochangkn3dxfkr5prfw76hiq3qpjyzr44m4zxbwub5f4kditlufid.onion/pico/meta/7
) is full of memes, incorrect information and lies, ITT I am gonna tell you the real history of nanochan, unfiltered and from an impartial perspective.
If you are a newfag you HAVE to read this, note: if you joined after hakase was already gone you ARE a newfag.

The beginning of the end
>End of October 2018 ~ 2018-10-28:
>End of October 2018 ~ Subsequent days:
more gets revealed of the reasons of hakase for creating nanochan it seems that he created it cause he was unhappy with 8chan /pol/ lenient moderation, but even though his focus was on making a polics board since /pol/ users were skeptic of Tor, few users from /pol/ migrate while instead lot come from /tech/ attracted by the minimal design, it was originally shilled at mewch so maybe someone from there too.
>Begin of November 2018:
nanochan gets spammed heavily with automated spam, many methods of captcha gets studied, proposed and tested, like proof of work algorithms and text captcha, but in the end hakase capitulates and nanochan gets shut down, all seems lost.
>Middle of November 2018:
hakase gets nanochan back online, the spammer comes back, at some point umarufag was added as a gvol, finally the spammer gives up, slowly hakase adds many new features like many new types of files supported, overboard, floating postbox, etc.
>From end of November 2018 to begin of March 2019:
nanochan flourishes activity is decent, quality is high, spirits are high, a new chan is born and it quickly becomes the best in the darknet and one of the best for quality discussion, the Hapase meme is born based on the fact that hakase first used "37564N" as a username like Noriko did and it sounded funny lol, at some point umarufag gets bullied into resigning his mod position, at some point another mod gets added from /pol/ but then he gets purged, the logo competition happens asukafag proposes a modified logo after the competition is over lol but hakase ignores him ( http://nanochanqzaytwlydykbg5nxkgyjxk3zsrctxuoxdmbx5jbh2ydyprid.onion/meta/1018#post1627
) coincidentally that same refused logo will become the official nanochang logo(possibly invalidates the hakasuka theory), sakamoto, endofunctor and Nyanonymous comes from this period although they did not have any identity at the time.
The golden age of the avatarfag quartet
>From begin of March 2019 to being of May 2019:
during this period suddenly a sharp increment in avatarfaggotry happens, if before umarufag was the only avatarfag on the site now there are 4, umarufag, asukafag, starfag, lainfag, some people start hating their guts, others hates them less, regardless it is a fact that most of the time(with the exception of umarufag) they engaged in some interesting discussion and often effortposted, of these new avatarfag asukafag becomes instantly infamous cause of his hapa propaganda, thread derail, frequent attacks of other posters and admission of being the HAPAS ARE SUPERIOR TO WHITES
spammer that caused so many boards to impose restrictions on Tor users, yet his knowledge of technology and OpenBSD gives him some cred at first, some people ask for his removal but hakase does nothing and once even removes a anti-hapa thread, hakase also creates /o/ and /k/ at some point, starfag and lainfag comes from this period.
>From begin of May 2019 to third week of May 2019:
hakase starts showing signs that he is not happy with the direction the site is taking, it is unknown what exactly what going through his head, it unknown if it was related to the hapa spam, but for sure it was in the air that something was going to happen, hakase makes a t
