Alright /toy/ soldiers, fall in! This thread is for any complaints, queries, or suggestions you may have about the board.

If you want any of your own photos (can be of anything, as long as it's /toy/ related) to be made into banners, post them here. If anyone wants to go above and beyond, there's the option for custom flags and spoiler.

RULES AREN'T SET IN PLACE - I'M OPEN TO CHANGES TO BETTER SUIT THE COMMUNITY

It's good to be back BO! I'm so glad you decided to return.

Two of these are actually by me, so I hope other anons will add something.

>I stupidly didn't save them, sorry!
It's alright, no one thought 8chan gonna fully die, I tried look at archive.org but there was nothing. I say it maybe for the best to have completely fresh start.

I actually quite like this board more than the old 8chan one, the only issue is there no archives and it need to be done manually (through archive.org) but it's understandable since it's small site and doesn't have big budget.

Once again, I'll try to convince some decent anons from cuckchan to come here and it will be much easier this time since this site doesn't come with the heavy luggage of 8chan and as far as I know cuckchan have yet made the webring/bunker boards into spam.
Reminder, 8kun is currently still up & posting is working for the moment. /toy/ isn't back up there yet though. Might wanna get on that.
>>92
>Might wanna get on that.
Mark, pls. Go back to your Qoomers.
>>93
The QBoomers stay in their areas. I just want the rest of the actual 8chan to come back.

>>94
8chan is dead for good, 8kun is nothing but hollow shell of what 8chan it was.

Turns out the email I sent to get the board ported over wasn't received because they'd changed the domain name without me realising, and I couldn't leave you guys after all.
> I say it maybe for the best to have completely fresh start.
I agree with you, but I'm just sad because they were photos that anons themselves took, some even back from 2013.
>I actually quite like this board more than the old 8chan one, the only issue is there no archives and it need to be done manually (through archive.org) but it's understandable since it's small site and doesn't have big budget
Looks like we're staying here, unless the guys that run this pull the plug when 8kun is completely up and running.
>Once again, I'll try to convince some decent anons from cuckchan to come here
Thanks again anon, I'll also help where I can.

>>92
My migration email was lost but many boards have yet to be migrated. 8kun hasn't migrated a new board in about a week now. From the consensus here I think we're staying here, and I'd rather be here. We don't need the heavy name of 8chan/kun attached to us when we are just a small board for toy discussion

>>96
Gonna have to agree with you here
>>96
It's literally just 8chan under a new name. The little disclaimer can also be disabled completely.
>>127
Your lies don't work on us, Mark >>56
>>128
Oh no. An agreement not to do crime. How awful.
>>129
>ignores the DMCA BS
Your passive-aggressive attitude doesn't do you any favors, Mark
>>129
>>133
Alright guys, cool it please.
I am not sure if the report system is broke, but >>142 is still up despite being low quality kitbag question.
>>148
Is it really against the rules? I don't quite understand how it is low quality, as the poster seems to be on topic.
>I am not sure if the report system is broke
It works fine but I'm not online constantly so I can't act upon your reports immediately.
>>150
>how it is low quality, as the poster seems to be on topic
You know what a kitbag question means? It's a dumb question with clearly obvious answer and I'm not talking about rhetorical question.

The poster is notorious spammer from cuckchan who is obsessive about Jasmine and midriff
https://archive.nyafuu.org/toy/search/text/jasmine/
https://archive.nyafuu.org/toy/search/text/midriff/
>>151
I was only vaguely aware of Jasmine-anon, so I didn't recognise the posting style. Thanks for highlighting it, I've deleted the offending post.
>>155
Thanks BO!

As for the state of the board, user wise, while it's not dead I think things are still far from being stable. Maybe we could discuss how to bring more anons through email exchange (I will sent you link to chat there)?
>>159
I know, I've been a bit slow on advertising because I set up a meta thread to see what people want. I've implemented what I could onto the rules, but there was a divide when it came to statues. I've updated the rules so low quality posts and e-celeb drama aren't allowed, both of which seemed to be a consensus on the meta thread.

Could you (or anyone else reading this) give me your opinion on the rules? I'm still wondering about NSFW toys (i.e Minase Shizue) if they should be allowed but must be spoilered? Statues allowed too but kept in a collectors thread?

>because I set up a meta thread to see what people want
Oh, you cheeky BO...even, I had no idea it was meant for our board so I doubt the cuckchanners themselves will know (they probably think the mods and jannies their will actually listen to their complains ROFL).

>I've updated the rules so low quality posts and e-celeb drama aren't allowed
That's great and I definitely support it, in fact it was already sort of implanted during the last days of 8chan and even here.

>Could you (or anyone else reading this) give me your opinion on the rules?
As of now, I think current rules are fine. Limiting what can be discussed here, can only cause harm since the board is already small and almost empty as it is.

I think it's too early to change the rules to fit the whims of cuckchanners that won't even bother to come here. This why I said I want to discuss with you about advertising in detail somewhere else, we need to try to think out of box.
OI BO
8kun toy is now back up?
Have you claimed it?
Are you planning to?
i personally have mixed feelings about 8kun.
But just so you know
>>236
Yeah, I claimed it. I've archived all the threads, locked the board, and left a message showing any lost soldiers where we are now.

I've edited the banners, so these are the current ones.
>>240
And this is the last of them. If anyone wants any of their toy photos made into banners (all of these are photos that soldiers have taken themselves), just post them here and I can add them.

Entered us in Julay's attention hungry games - /toy/ made it to night 4 but we died after trying to climb a tree. I've entered us in the 2nd attention hungry games: https://julay.world/meta/res/2841.html

>>274
Good job BO!
I hope luck will be with us this time.
>>277
Hopefully, but if we don't we can always re-enter. Even just entering is a good way to advertise and it's always a cool way to interact with loads of other users across the webring.
>>319
There's a reason that the webring as a whole has decided to leave 8kun and move forward with the webring instead. Julay is even working on its own imageboard software, and even the bigger legacy boards are remaining on the webring. Remaining on the webring isn't for paranoid hermits, but for anyone with half a brain. Jim, Ron, and Mark have personally killed 8chan and have the indecency to present the stillborn abomination that is 8kun to us and try to make us use it.
>Why would you even care about a legal disclaimer that's there to prevent future takedowns? It's a toy board. You're not posting anything wrong in the first place. It's literally a legal issue.
You're completely right in that it doesn't affect /toy/, but it represents the state the site is in. The fact that Jim sunk so low as to bend over backwards to the US government and retool the site to their needs is a fucking joke. Disclaimer on every post? Ridiculous and unneeded. Read-only mode that can be forced upon any board just because Congress and the alphabet soup agencies doesn't like what's being posted? A complete sellout of the very core of what made 8chan. 8kun has been up for months, but what has it achieved? Jim has altered the site for the needs of the Q LARP and Ron has spent more time on making pointless features (susucoin archiving) rather than bringing the site back to life. Why is the site even broken? It shouldn't be at all because its supposed to be the same website but with a different name, so why is it barely functional and lacking all the boards?

I want you to list all the advantages for /toy/ to relocate to 8kun, because I can't see any. The advantages for staying on the webring are:
-Ability to stay on a secure platform that cannot be taken down (saving the hassle of having to relocate back and forth between boards)
-Ability to stay on a working platform
-No censorship
-Recruiting/Advertising is easier now that we don't have the baggage of 8kun and /pol/
-The webring has a future while 8kun will only ever be a containment for the Qtards
-Nobody can fuck the webring up from the inside
Is 40k modeling and painting autism allowed here? /tg/ boards are gay as fuck and filled with trannychasers and reddit.
>>329
did you try smug/tg/ already?
>>330
I hate nepfag and his entire coterie of dick slurping catamites. Fuck smug and fuck any board that wants to be involved with them.

Nepfag is a tranny felating nigger.
Cleaned up the thread a bit as it was starting to get off-topic. I'll re-state what I've said before and this won't change - /toy/ is staying here and will never go to 8kun. The advantages for staying on the webring are:
-Ability to stay on a secure platform that cannot be taken down (saving the hassle of having to relocate back and forth between boards)
-Ability to stay on a working platform
-No censorship
-Recruiting/Advertising is easier now that we don't have the baggage of 8kun and /pol/
-The webring has a future while 8kun will only ever be a containment for the Qtards
-Nobody can fuck the webring up from the inside

As for recent changes I've implemented, I was wondering what you guys thought:
-Enforced soldierymous
-A N O N is filtered to change to soldier
I was also wondering about thoughts on the CSS. Keep it how it is now? Or change it to a different style?
>>392
Anyone got any thoughts on this?

We finally won the Julay Hunger Games! Not many highlights as we stayed away from the other boards for the majority of the game.

YES!
And we have also killed the Nigsocs, NOICE

>>414
I think it's all good. I don't see a reason to be the only board here with different look, and I'm fond of the unique turquoise scheme.
>>428
Cool, thanks for the input. I was wondering whether or not to switch to Yotsuba B or try something completely different.
