You planning to add this to the webring BO?
I'm planning to. We'll add a link to the webring, and notify whoever is in charge of adding boards to the ring soon.
Not really sure how that stuff works. Try #8/a/ on Rizon.
Please tell me what happened to kindchan.org
Any reason as to why? Money issues? Or did it go deeper?
He did briefly mention having some kind of stress related condition caused by having to moderate the board. The board was only getting one post a day at that time so I find it hard to believe. Personally I think it was just general disappointment in the kindchan project.
I thought we had webms and mp4s enabled!?!TEST
If anyone wants to make any banners just post them in this thread and we will put them to use <3 our preferred size is 300px x 100px
Is this site going to join the webring?
I read somewhere that it was invite only and this board hasn't been invited to my knowledge.
Oh, that's too bad if it's not going to be on there. It needs more exposure. A lot of people don't seem comfortable with posting on 8kun.
Can't really blame them. Maybe affiliating with another small board is in order.
That's definitely true.
>>47>general disappointment in the kindchan project
Because lack of activity? That's to be expected if you create a new website but hardly tell anyone anywhere about it.>>137>>359
You just need to ask other members to add your website since there's no automatic process for doing it. It's not a secret club, all you need to do is ask and they'll add you.
I don't necessarily recommend it though, the webring is plagued by highly autistic and malicious people who keep going around spamming and DDoSing and generally trying to stir shit and turn people against each other.
I worry that if this place joins the webring, it could be in the same situation as /comfy/. Also I'm not a robot, dangit.
Late.city could be a good other board.
>>408>own webring with specific boards that compliment our own like late.city
Be careful if you end up doing that, I remember julay or smug saying that if some other member that they follow adds a new website, that website will get shown for them too. So if late.city adds kind.moe it may automatically get propagated to other parts of the webring. I'm not entirely sure how it works though. They'd have to somehow create a separate webring listing.
I was thinking they could just put a link to /kind/ somewhere and we would have a link to them somewhere.
I have a couple obsure boards in mind if you decide to go through with it.
I will do it. What boards did you have in mind? I was considering /otter/ and /cute/.
What happened with /comfy/ that was so bad?
I never noticed anything other than an overzealous poster from /fascist/ or two.
nah, he's not just from there, he shitposts everywhere and pretends it's not only one guy. he's also a proxyhopper which is why /cow/ has huge numbers. in /v/ related boards is obsession with mark, on /k/ is muttspamming and fedposting (he was known as krautspammer back then, it seems 8moe also has the same issue), and on other boards is more obsession with mark too.
He also tries to rewrite what happened with cow/v/ when Tengu took over and spergs hard over good ol Billy Herrington. You can know it's him because he uses the same files over and over. and he may behind some history rewriting on ED as well, after the place was shutdown a lot of stuff from 8chan's article was different and obsessed with gamergate as well.
it makes 4chan bearable, from the webring I only use the nichest boards now. and I don't like taking this topic out because everytime I spoke against this behaviour somewhere, the board was tainted with him swarming in. I don't want to stop browsing /kind/ because I dared to speak about this, but I'll do if /kind/ is not /kind/ anymore
I hate what happened to 8ch's community after its death.
We are but weeds set a drift through this internet hellscape by the last dying breath of our once great board.
Why not just list friendly boards under the posting portion of the page. Like we used to have on the original board, where we listed /cute/ and others who were good friends to /kind/.>>421
Look at that, someone else had the same idea.
How do we make friends?
I don't think that feature is included in this IB software.
Then we should do our utmost best to preserve what we have right now.
Can /comfy/ be your friend? We are linking to you already.
It would be nice if I could post from tor, maybe with a required captcha to avoid abuse like some other image boards do it.
No /kind/ doesn't actually have a hit list.
but why can't we be friends?
I did it. you might have to refresh to see it.
I, too, am disappointed.
How easy is it to set up an imageboard?
Easier than making friends the conventional way.
Whats wrong with the one you're on right now
The one I'd like to make would be something less comfy. I'd allow posters that are rude and unkind as long as they can vent and say what they truly feel.
But at the same time the work of deleting cp and worrying about it scares me.
To be honest that sounds like it would just be another /b/.
It would be for feels
Oh so more like /r9k/
I became a degenerate neet who spent every waking moment of his life reading visual novels and manga. I completely forgot about /kind/. I was even beginning to recover from the years of brutal trauma inflicted on my poor mind by half a decade of deleting brownpills and CP spam. It was great. >how are you doing?
I'm running on 2 hours of sleep but you made me feel better thanks.
It wouldn't be polite to say. Case in point:>>742>>748
They disappeared so suddenly it is only normal to be concerned with what happened to them.
I know I'm only kidding. I asked someone who knew him for much longer than I did and they haven't seen him either. Though I have a feeling they still visit.
Hi, BO. The time of this IB isn't syncronized where I am. Is it possible to solve this, please?
I have my top man looking into this.>>802
That's very sweet, but I can't take any credit for that. The /kind/ developer is the one who brought /kind/ back.>>788>defending us from the brown pills and the no good 3d loli
Now this I can take credit for. No one is better than me at completing mindless/repetitive tasks at all hours of the day.
Since this is the only board in the website, have you considered adding in a bib bombastic link to it in the front page?
To be honest, it would be ideal if clicking on the cat redirected to the index.
Yeah, I like the cat idea. I'll add it to the list. Honestly, development has slowed down in recent days, but it should pick back up again after Thursday. So stay tuned.
>>762>I was even beginning to recover from the years of brutal trauma inflicted on my poor mind by half a decade of deleting brownpills and CP spam.
You must be pretty psychologically strong to have put up with that. There are some gore images I wish I'd never seen, but the idea of even seeing cheese pizza horrifies me.
>>828>I'll add it to the list.
Okay the cat logo is now a link. He was able to do it fast than I thought.
Is anyone else having this issue with time being incorrect on posts?
Yeah. In my case, post time is roughly 5 hours ahead.
Yeah, but I don't really mind.
Central European Time, but post shows 2 hours earlier. As>>848
said, it's not that important to me either.
/kind/ and https://smuglo.li/cute/
are now friends. /cute/ is a personal favorite of mine, and a great resource for 2D posters. I'd like to make more friends so please recommend a few if you can.
Sorry if I'm putting this in the wrong thread and being a bother. Would it be cool if we had a language learning thread, or would that not be very relevant for this board? I assume that not everyone that posts here is a native English speaker and that some of us are trying to learn other languages, so maybe we could use that thread to help each other learn languages and provide learning resources.
This place seems pretty nice, it's quite new eh?
Do you guys just have the one board? Would you ever consider branching out into more? I get that when the community's small it makes sense to keep everything in one place though, so I am conflicted.
Yeah this site is new but /kind/ was an 8chan board for about 5 years before this.>Would you ever consider branching out into more?
This board is way too slow for that.
Would you consider adding grimchan.xyz? I already got affirmation on their end.
Grimchan admin here, this place seems pretty nice. Didn't know anything about the old board so idk how it compares to that but it's nice.
I added them. Thanks for helping out, friend.>>946
Your site is nice too. I was actually checking it out earlier this week. I'm glad we can be friends.>>947
It was, but I doubled it just now.
And I just added you guys as well.
added a catalog link to the top of all pages. also changed stuff in the boardlinks bar so it looks a bit cleaner. and MP3s can be posted now if you feel so inclined :3
>>991>added a catalog link to the top of all pages
It's nice, I like it.
Weird link placement choice, tho.>changed stuff in the boardlinks bar so it looks a bit cleaner
I think it looks good.
What kind of stream?
That would be determined by popular vote.
You're right, silly me. Bet you're also already frens with https://late.city/late/
and the frens of https://grimchan.xyz/friends.html
Would you be interested in frens on the fediverse? You'd need to register a username, though.
Somebody else already suggested that /late/ should become our friend in their meta thread, but the post didn't get any attention. I'll try emailing their admin. We're friends with grimchan too. >fediverse
I thought about advertising there as a last resort. I don't use any un-anon sites so I don't know if making friends
is something they do or if they'd be interested in an imageboard.>>1402
Me too. I couldn't find a page for friends or anything even though grimchan links to them. Maybe /kind/ could be their first.
3dchan.net is pretty interesting though I'm not sure how suitable it is as an affiliate.
>>1432>who are you
Doesn't matter. Couldn't prove who I am under scrutiny anyway. Trip codes aren't even foolproof. I saw them get cracked all the time on 8/b/. There is always going to be some need for trust.>>1433
Fairness is a spook.
>>1402>crt but it has the streamer setup filter
Yakui.moe will link to us if we do the same.>>1520
I think they just had rotating banner ads before.
We link to them now. Nice job. I like maids.>>1520
That looks so much better than just a bunch of links. /kind/ will have a html page like this in the future.
I really like that too short
Animu. I'm going to look it up and watch it again soon.
Do you want to be friends with /fascist/ on anon.cafe?
Are you lads still sore about the cup?
Yuichan.org is a nice board.
>>1695>The friends page has been improved.
looking good! was happy to learn about grimchan. that place is slow but not dead and by the looks of it there is good fun posting there. will try and be a kind ambassador and not bully them too hard about being canadian if i post on /int/ ;-)>Also, I'm still open to feedback
i like kind!>and suggestions.
take a moment to pat yourself on the back for all the work you put into the site. it is appreciated.
I increased the maximum post body length by 50%. I hope that's enough for you, if not just let me know. >>1710
You are too kind, friend. Grimchan is great, send them my regards.
Is that Mikoto? I can almost recognize the doujin.
>>1695>I'm still open to feedback and suggestions.
I always appreciate it when boards have an entry on the rules/help/faq/etc page outlining what markdown options are available. Sometimes there are subtle differences from site to site and I'm always reluctant to experiment with decorating a post for fear of messing up and making an eye sore. How does /kind/ feel about this?
Are you talking about text formatting? Like red text?
22chan.org is a nice board
I don't know about that.
An extremely bare bones FAQ has been implemented. Also several "new"
formats have been added.
I vehemently disagree.
Maybe the small text should use double dashes, it seems to be invoked by mistake often.
Thanks. Please don't hit the rat.
>>1979>I wouldn't just rush into something like that
If anything, my approach has been overly cautious up till now. I've been watching the webring and debating whether we should join or not for several months. We have protections against certain attacks in place and I'm here 20 hours a day to moderate. We can leave the webring whenever we feel like it. /kind/ isn't as fragile as some might think.>slow cannot = good
I want a good balance between comfiness and liveliness. We had something like that before. I don't see why we couldn't have it again.>crossover event
I'm going to start streaming movies soon. I would invite our friends, of course.
My server board is on the webring and yet it is more dead than here, I gave up on 8kun because the activity went into minus numbers (the board kept reverting so new posts wouldn't show up at all until one posts and then it just reverts to the same state as before, the next day)
I don't think the webring in and of itself is enough to boost activity, you'd have to go onto other boards on the webring and somehow encourage them to check out your board but a lot of posters don't care either way and many see board advertizing as bad
It might also not update to show your board/site on all the webring sites/boards lists and even if it does it might appear on the bottom or second page, there's no guarantees
I've noticed that about /server/ too. It's because the webring is based on a vicious circle where boards with a high PPH get almost all the exposure. I believe /kind/ would benefit from this because we occasionally have a high enough PPH to rival their top boards.>I gave up on 8kun
Honestly, its depressing. Sometimes I don't even want to check on 8/kind/. Such a shame.>boost activity
I think it would be worth it even if we only get one good friend out of it. There was a point on this board where almost every thread was made by just one guy. Without that one guy /kind/ would be much worse off.>you'd have to go onto other boards on the webring
I already have plans to do this if all else fails. There are ways to cover up for bad optics while advertising.>It might also not update to show your board/site
Are you sure about that? I've checked it many times so I've seen boards leave and join the webring without any problems. I've been in the /support/ thread and I haven't seen anyone complaining about this. Though, even if there was an issue like this it wouldn't bother me as long as we show up on the more active boards.
This is true for most imageboards, the way the lists of boards are displayed on most sites is based off activity and any new posters will just go into the most active boards thinking they must be good if they're that active. Its like with the japanese waiting lines, "if waiting in line is long it must be good" mentality.
When the boards are displayed only up top/bottom of the site in alphabetical order or some other grouping than activity then it may be different. But its also just that most seem to follow others line of thinking to the point they wont think for themselves, which also leads to the typical groupthink. They see some board they've known by name previously then they will more likely go to that board than a new and better alternative unless the moderation makes them unable to post on the known name board. This is not always bad, but can be bad at times when no new alternatives are considered.
Like with 8kun, even if it be falling apart maybe some users still persist in using it and wont consider alternatives until 8kun is totally unreachable.
I haven't checked 8/kind/ in a long time, I only check on here now because the 8kun site has huge issues. Linking to it is often flagged as "unsafe" it sometimes doesn't work to post or update pages, it keeps reverting and it has the disclaimers on every post (unless disabled for viewing by the native users)
I'm not sure what the best way to boost activity is other than being constantly active and having some links to ones boards available to those who might be interested in it. 4chan was really slow to begin with. I wonder how those more popular boards picked up all that activity to begin with..
/server/ did get mentioned on other boards on the webring but more as a curiousity, I guess there's always a lot more lurkers than there are posters. Sometimes they might not know what to post. Is this allowed? Would this be a good idea? And so on…
I've read before that some site owners had issues with getting displayed on the webring but it probably varies, you might not have much issues there, just know that there's a chance it might be some trouble.
I think it helps to have someone to bounce ideas off of sometimes.
I largely agree with what you're saying. The best way to boost activity depends on the board. For /kind/ I'm going to build it up slowly. If there are any problems with /kind/ not showing up in the webring I'll pester /support/ until it's fixed. >someone to bounce ideas off of
That's exactly what this thread is about.
Cool. I'll never understandi being kind on an imageboard but I'm glad you guys didn't just vanish into the ether when the Guntstream pedophile cabal destroyed julay. Stay cool.
I think even imageboard users have a kind side to them, so /kind/ is here for them to express it. Good luck with fighting the pedos.
You don't need to understand to be kind.
It feels nice being kind.
It's kind to be kind.
Admin, can you enable the ImgOps reverse image search link next to every image?
sure, just did it :3
we had a slight outage but everything is up and running again. sorry for the inconvenience everyone!!
How is the webring today? Are there still many new additions that die from spam and DDoS by bad actors?
Admin, please add the [Last 50 Posts] link to threads for those of us with weaker machines.
I've always wanted to use a retrofitted TAM.
It merely appears as one - for it takes the form of the most usable interface for the user it chooses. This sacred relic is divine technology bestowed by the Wired itself - its workings are of such a higher order of techno-sorcery that we are left stumped by its inner workings.
All we know is that it works.
I wasn't kidding when I said we needed this.
woah even her feet are blushing
I'm glad you bumped the thread.
Your last 50 posts thing is there now.>>3343
I'm not sure that is even possible on vichan, but it is being looked into.>>3361
I know a few phone posters. They haven't complained to me about loading /kind/ yet.
Is there any plan for the future for when even boards like this potentially get shut down? I'm worried.
I found this extension that looks like it could be useful, but we'd still need a .crypto domain:https://unstoppabledomains.com/extension
I hope you guys are right.
it's fixed now! sorry everyone :3
I'm getting an error on mobile where it won't allow me to post.
What does the error say? I haven't had issues mobile posting.
I hate to say it, but I think the board needs a captcha.
It wouldn't change anything. The pedo doing this is doing it manually.
At least the mods are quick about it
Nothing seems broken to me.
The appropriate authorities have been given full awareness on the scope and magnitude of this matter. The problem will be solved within an amount of time.
Works again, thank you.
What happened to the rant thread? I saw that someone posted some longer posts to which someone made a very mean reply, but now all the new posts are gone and it is locked? Wouldn't it have been enough to just delete the mean post?
It's probably my fault.
The poster you're referring to made a request for their posts to be deleted. The thread is locked to let things cool off. In the end my goal is just peace on the board.
worry not friend, you didnt do anything with malicious intent
Would you consider affiliating with 8chan.moe's /pure/? If yes, they'll need to be asked next.
