Ok, it's that time again. Server bill is due and SnakeDude isn't around. Please consider donating if you like what we're doing. Details are available here:

http://endchan.xyz/.static/donations.html

We need $200 for the next 3 months. We have about $50 in donations from our last drive, so we need to raise $150 way before the 1st (so there's time to transfer the money around).

Any feedback is welcome.

It's the most wonderful time of the year
With the kids jingle belling
And everyone telling you be of good cheer
It's the most wonderful time of the year

It's the hap-happiest season of all
With those holiday greetings and gay happy meetings
When friends come to call
It's the hap-happiest season of all

There'll be parties for hosting
Marshmallows for toasting
And caroling out in the snow
There'll be scary ghost stories
And tales of the glories of
Christmases long, long ago

It's the most wonderful time of the year
There'll be much mistltoeing
And hearts will be glowing
When love ones are near
It's the most wonderful time of the year

There'll be parties for hosting
Marshmallows for toasting
And caroling out in the snow
There'll be scary ghost stories
And tales of the glories of
Christmases long, long ago

It's the most wonderful time of the year
There'll be much mistltoeing
And hearts will be glowing
When love ones are near
It's the most wonderful time
Yes the most wonderful time
Oh the most wonderful time
Of the year

Hypothetically, what would happen if everyone just didn't give a shit and doesn't donate?

With Snake failing the support us on this bill, honestly Balrog and I need to talk. We'll need to downsize and move the site. Even our old server group is having problems raising donations.

I think it's less about the money and more about the value we're bringing. If there are too many other places/technologies that support free speech and we're not serving a purpose then we won't get any donations and it's clearly a sign that we're not what the community wants or needs now.

>>4901
He does show up but he doesn't seem to stick around to talk, been afk the last couple times I've tried to engage him. Plus I've been on IRC less and less.

tbh I just found out that the city my uni is located at has the only two buttcoin machines on the entire island I live on. Apparently the dude who bought them is pushing small businesses super hard to adopt bitcoin payments in that city.

If I can be bothered hunting one down and figuring out how it works, I might contribute some.

Remember that you can also buy bitcoins from people in person with https://localbitcoins.com/ which may be more convenient if you live in a cosmopolitan area.

Well, that sucks.

I was introduced to Endchan while looking for a bunker during the Infinity Next transition fiasco. Endchan had the best features, with the best look and feel of the options I considered. I liked it so much I made a play to get the userbase of one board to permanently migrate, but no joy.

I've seen dialup BBSes, the first commercial online services, Usenet groups, all sorts of forums, and many an image board bite the digital dust. You can hold your heads up high as you've done better than most. If you can keep this place running with reduced infrastructure please do so.

If I may ask here, what happens now with InfinityNow/LynxChan?

Also, have you considered taking on another partner? Splitting the cost three ways @ $200 per quarter might be doable.

Having to deal with random people is the main reason I never got into bitcoin previously.

I'd much rather Just walk into a shop, feed cash into a machine and then walk out than meet with some random guy on the streets.

with 16chan dead, I'm more motivated than ever to help keep this alive. We'll figure something out.

>16chan is dead

I heard that not more than an hour ago.

That is not a cause for celebration. It is not an opportunity, either. I do think it is, for Endchan, an important milepost. The future of the chanscape remains murky, but wheresoever we are heading you must to do your utmost to carry Endchan past this historic point with the infrastructure at hand.

For my own self, I think it's time I took the plunge into the world of BTC.

Not to badger you, but could we have an update on the situation as it stands now?

Well depending on one's persuasion on Josh's role in 8chan's death, that may not exactly be true.


>It is not an opportunity either.

Did you not just read >>4907 ?

> If there are too many other places/technologies that support free speech and we're not serving a purpose then we won't get any donations and it's clearly a sign that we're not what the community wants or needs now.

or to be more concise,

>If we're not getting any donations, it's a sign that we're not what the community wants.

This is our opportunity to grow our community to accommodate the server's costs.

There are other 'Snakes' out there more than willing to help out.

We need to take advantage of this chance to save endchan.

Josh is even guiding the 16chan anons to this place in the announcement.

>Well depending ...

Understood, but I was speaking only in terms of what Endchan needs to do now. Opinions on Josh aside, his failure was useful in exposing 8chan as another psychotic commercial fantasy, instead of the libertarian paradise it was presented as.

>If there are too many other places/technologies ...

Speaking generally, the logic of this makes sense. Zero-sum game and all that. However, my feeling is 16chan was such a tiny sliver of activity that its demise will have zero impact on Endchan's viability. We need dozens of tertiary imageboards to poof out of existence before Endchan could be guaranteed a significant bump.

Outside of 4chan or reddit collapsing, singular failure elsewhere is not the key to our survival.

>If we're not getting any donations, it's a sign that we're not what the community wants.

Endchan's admin team, like any other board runner, have their faces turned to the skies in anticipation of a rainbow of hope. Even so, a statement like this shows they have their feet firmly planted on the ground. That itself is worthy of some support.

Agreed.

>Not to badger you, but could we have an update on the situation as it stands now?

After almost 2 weeks without a donation, I think we just got a ~$115 donation(s?), that would put us $36 short of the goal. It's all on our donations page: http://endchan.xyz/.static/donations.html

>>4925
Very honored he did that.

>>4927
More places for anonymous and/or free speech is best for all. Thanks for the kind words. (I need to watch Fear and Loathing again, it's been too long.)

Is $200 really that much to shell out of your collective two pockets? I'd donate, but you fucked up good with the whole /am/ drama, befriending czaks, selling an alt-domain to Hotwheels and joking about him taking over when it wasn't even April 1st. You didn't listen to your most active and loyal userbase which is /AM/ MULTIPLE times, and now you're begging us for money? I'd add using Lynxchan and the fact that Stephen is a huge, arrogant autist, but since Josh quit the game there's no help to using Lynxchan. That I can forgive, but the monopoly is still unhealthy.

I'll consider voluntarily paying for this supposedly free service next year, maybe, when you've fixed your rulecuck streak and hired more autists to be gvols.

In his defense it's been several months since last fuckup and he did change his approach to some of the most pressing matters since the fuckups themselves. I don't know what's the status of cooperation with Czaks ruda kurwa z wykopu though.

>You didn't listen to your most active and loyal userbase which is /AM/ MULTIPLE times
Seen that point previously, I asked for it to be elaborated on, didn't happen, maybe this time it will. Not saying nothing like that happened but multiple is a vague term and my memory needs a refresher.

Yes, it's next on the list. For threads that is. We can't do much on a user basis unless IDs are enabled I believe otherwise we'd have to expose an non-anonymous identifier.

Thank you as well.

I still believe this marks a significant historical point in western chan history. Carrying Endchan through this point is important. The future can take care of itself, for now I'll take what I can get.
