8chan is under attack Anonymous 492243[Last 50 Posts]

It appears that 8chan is being flooded in a denial of service attack. The site has been down over three hours now.

I wonder who is behind this?

8chan has been the only place where an effective counter defense against the cancer of the SJW has been mounted.

This is the work of those who were burned in Gamergate.

8chan has made a lot of enemies. But OP is right. Shit has hit the fan. Now it's just a matter of waiting out the shit storm and see what happened.

8chan has fucked itself, it's only turnabout.

It's a dumb, poorly directed mess. It will just keep lashing out at everyone and making more unnecessary enemies all while failing miserably to stem the tide of m-muh gamergate m-muh feminazis.

Both are equally shit.

8chan has progressed beyond just that now though, many persons have made entirely unrelated boards and i enjoy some of these while i couldnt care less about gaymergate
Also m00t fucked up /pol/ beyond repair on 4chan and a lot moved to 8chan, say anything you want about the stormfags but there are always useful links thrown around, /pone/ a shit tho

8chan should nerf the fuck out of board owners. You create a board you set a topic, that's it. No rules, no posting limits, no hugboxes, just the standard board-wide rules of generally relevant content and flooders getting banned. And don't fucking pick your mods based on whoever hits the "board create" button first, pick them based on who isn't going to fuck with users, and who's stuck around for a while. No applications allowed, invitation only.

if they did that then maybe they could avoid splintering the board communities into the "tolerate these bullying mods because everyone's already here" crowd and the "pick a channel with a weird name and drag everyone over there" crowd. which is exactly why 8chan was even created.

The whole raid was more the work of /b/. Someone from mlpchan allegedly stole /b/'s get which causes them to raid here but nobody gave a shit so the raid died. It was the work of a handful of retards.
Then some autist tried to get us on /pone/ to shill but in the thread he was clearly insulted and told off. Not that anyone cares because now mlpchan and 8chan are both being faggots.

I don't know who the original host was but hotwheels did complain about them before moving to 2chan. From what I know it was hotwheels who wanted to merge with 2chan to boost the reputation of 8chan. It was also a way to give halfchan the middle finger since Moot at a far earlier time wanted to work with 2chan. Apparently Hotwheels didn't even seek out 2chan, they came to him.

Unless there is some underlying butt-blasted drama I am unaware of MLPchan and 8chan should BOTH be supported. They are much better than /mlp/ IMO and have less asshole moderation.

Any place that allows me to post milkyway, porn, everlasting social drama, and make obscure claims out of thin air is ok in my book.

I don't even fully know wtf pol and gamergate are talking about sometimes but it's good for a read. If anything I laugh.

There is some drama occasionally. I think /b/ and mlpchan had a fight for like... one day or so that resulted in /b/ being tricked into ddosing the fbi, but I think it's all in good jest anyways.

Also, some folks on /pone/ like to report people for being from mlpchan from time to time. It never stops being funny, and I never stop throwing their reports into the trash.

Anonymous 492534

I agree with the last few posts. There should be a brotherhood sense between mlpchan and /pone/
Mlpchan showed its resolve in the face of attacks and and spam from 8chan which it did not deserve. Mlpchan is 'small but mighty'. They both created to get away from oppression; ponychan and 4chan.
8chan shills too hard at times but everyone had flaws.
My only criticism right now is that hw should have known the site would be bound to attract enemies and attacks; not having a backup plan already in place to shift the site to a backup network was a rookie mistake.

8chan isn't about cartoons. It's made a lot of enemies recently with that gaymergate stuff and a particularly rabid /pol/. Then there's a new raiding board which has ambiguous motives. IIRC the rent for an unlimited botnet attack was $500. That's nothing to a wealthy SJW or bored trustafarian looking for lulz. Of course, it might not be an aggrieved individual. It could be a Gawker funded attack. I expect /pol/ are already fermenting complicated conspiracy theories in which 8Chan has been silenced by jews, illuminati, commies and the government, mang.

If the DDoS is the work of an individual or an opposing group then we can be sure they will gloat about it sometime soon.

Hidden IP and Cloudfare, I guess. Hot wheels has been pretty naive (or casual) about security so far. m00t learned how to protect 4chan the hard way and HW needs to learn the same lessons quickly. I don't think he was ready for the huge increase in traffic he got since September and he certainly wasn't prepared for the shitstorms 8chan brewed up. In a year or two all this will a legend of teh interntz. Whether 8chan will still be around then remains to be seen.

We're not really sure. It claims to be 'old /b/' with 1337 anonymous lulz and epic wins. Some say it's a false-flag Tumblr infiltration board trying to discredit 8chan (as if that were necessary) by being as obnoxious as possible. The some who say this are all from /pol/, naturally. It certainly showed up with a ready made userbase but then it got temporarily shutdown by a casual spambot, so I tend to agree with the tinfoil milliners on /pol/.

Man, not even 8chan's /b/ hates MLPchan. It's just that both Hotwheels and you guys' admin is a massive troll. Also, /b/ is fairly fed up with ponies because of a certain group of posters who refuse to move to /pone/, or to /7get/, or to really any other place that would accept them with open arms, or at worst with ambivalence.

It's not even the "original" /b/ ponyfag community. The original /b/ronyfags who started on /b/ (and other than the /co/ general, is the oldest ponyfag community on the internet) is mostly here in a general on /oat/ (/b/ & friends). They migrated and stopped the whole "hurr durr we gotta post on /b/ to annoy everyone and get attention which fuels us." That "original" community, lives on just fine and healthy. It's just about a dozen autists who refuse to go anywhere but a board that says "/b/" (whether that's 4chan or 8chan). It's a pitiful little shell of a community that tries to claim it's the original, when it's just using the name and making that original community look bad.

I didn't presume that they hate mlpchan now. But they did for a bit for a stupid reason. Thankfully resolved with mutual, if begrudging, respect earned in battle for mlpchan.

Dunno how many of us will stay, but I personally have found myself dropping in here from time to time. That said, if we really wanted to take power away from moot, we'd find a way to make /mlp/ make a complete exodus. Mind you, this would end up as something that most on /pone/ would simply NOT WANT, because it would mean we'd inherit a lot of the cancer that has formed on /mlp/ (most of the threads either involve Equestria girls, Cadence/generic shitposting, or general #8937425964359). Still, if /mlp/ was no longer the default place for discussion of the fandom, he might just drop quite a bit in the Alexa ranks...

The site "8chan.co" is never coming back.

Once a domain is hijacked, it is next to impossible to recover it. The squatter/troll will hold on it, change registrars, and Hotwheels be unable to recover it. Then the new owner will flip it for a profit most likely.

HW may start another site, maybe with all the same stuff, on a new domain, but that's the best he'll be able to do.

And with all this downtime, and with this big shutdown, all the momentum 8chan had is gone.

I'm not sure how anyone would tell who I am without my trip or anything. Jesus, this is a pain in the ass.

Anonymous 494368

Trips are allowed here for things like that.

Different anon.

Content creation, RPs, CYOAs, art, etc. Use a trip.

/anon/ isn't forced anon 494369

/anon/ isn't purely an anonymous board, it's just to distinguish it from the rest of the site. /anon/ is named after anonymous, 4chan style culture. The rest of the site is essentially Ponychan 2, electric boogaloo, where pretty much everyone has a name or trip.

I can post with a trip here? Shit. That's good to know.
We'll see what happens then. Or maybe mlpchan will think my threads are shit and chase me away, also fun.

It's back up at 8ch.net

Are 8chan and 8ch the same or two separate sites? I can't into computers and I'm so confused! Will my posts appear on both if I post on one? That seems to be the case since I've got both sites open.

Anonymous 494377

It's the same site, 8chan's domain was squatted by internetbs but if you followed https://4zip.pw/8chan.txt then it should redirect to the actual IP; same goes for 8ch.net

Anonymous 494378

Didn't the same thing happen to Moot?

He just changed the top level domain.

HW can just get 8chan.net or something.

Anonymous 494379

As you may have guessed, /baphomet/ is up and running. They've already set up an alternative site to conduct business in case the current domain comes under DDoS again.

This is going to be a long night and a good show!

Internet.bs is contractually obligated to provide the domain name 8chan.co to Hotwheels until 2017. He need only file a lawsuit.

the little midget cripple has crafted a ridiculous cult of personality around himself, which moronic manchildren have become enthralled with. he's tacitly and explictly encouraged even *more* attacks against the site, making it harder for people to use and enjoy the site. sacrificing the community's ability to do what it was meant for, for his own attention and personal 'glory' people give him for all this so-called 'based' action.

further, all the biggest boards on the site are pure straight up vomit. other than the small niche boards like tabletop gaming and such, it's all the same old 4chan bullshit; /b/, /v/, m-muh gamergate dumb shit. hurr durr muh gaming journalism ethics, wow such important, much worth.

Here we go again!

The DDoS has resumed against the new domain name.

The drama, like the ride, never ends.

Anonymous 494488

Can anyone summarize the drama a little?

I don't understand why the attack continues.

Hotwheels hasn't updated his twitter feed yet today.

Guess he's too busy dealing with this newest attack.

Still no news on the twitter feed.

Tried to get in after clearing my browser caches. At first, everything was working. Slow but working. Then after a couple of minutes of browsing, got the error 522 page.

It's a full on war between 8chan and whoever is paying to keep the site down.

Anonymous 494522

I wonder if catfood will make a comic about this.

Anonymous 494531

If this shit is going to be happening on a regular basis, we should probably just make a "8chan bunker general" or some shit. Although I'm pretty sure most of us are heading to weekend chan instead of here...

Good news, everyone!

We appear to be past the worst of the storm. 8chan is up and running.

I thought they used Emily with /pone/ instead of /mlp/ in her hat.
