Please don't join any "federations" or "rings"This hopefully isn't a problem, but in the past there have been multiple attempts to unify imageboards into a single community. One such unification exists right now which is known as the "webring". Before this there was an attempt in 2018/19? that existed solely to datamine users, and for the past 1 1/2 years there's been one guy creating imageboards on a weekly basis to spam everywhere he can (I think its a person called Space_ but I'm not sure).
IRC vs DiscordI've noticed that IRC has been pretty dead as of late, while the activity on the boards has remained fairly constant. I feel like this is due to IRC quickly becoming a niche thing. My other imageboard Uboachan switched to Discord some years back and the chat has been explosively active ever since. So, I am wondering if anyone still prefers IRC, or if we ought to try moving to Discord and see how that works out. Thoughts?
About allowing loli content in /lewd/Would anyone be particularly upset if I stopped allowing loli content in /lewd/? I have started becoming paranoid about hosting such content since a while ago, and I am afraid to link the site to people I know. Please give your thoughts in the comments.
Janitor ApplicationsHello sushi rolls!
typosquatting attempt?There's a site called sushichan.org that I had stumbled upon. Weird site, says you were hacked or something. I checked the source code of the website to see if something was hidden inside it, like something that automatically downloads something to your browser, but nothing was really found.
Samachan.org users looking for a new homeUpdate: New /otaku/ board with landing sticky for Samachan users at >>>/otaku/
Sushi WorldWould anyone be interested in me hosting a copy of the Uboachan Dream World MUD specifically for sushichan users? We could call it Sushi World or something silly like that. If you haven't checked it out yet, it's a multiplayer text adventure engine I wrote over the past week where the users create all of the content with in-game commands. You can explore and make worlds with friends and it's probably also good for roleplaying.
Recent Downtime ExplanationThe hosting provider forced a reboot to patch over a critical CPU-level security vulnerability that was discovered recently affecting all operating systems. Our server did not survive the reboot. It's unknown whether I broke something or they did, since we hadn't rebooted in a long time.
Board CSSI really like the selection on the site and very much enjoy Rei/Zero, however every once in awhile I like to change it up. So rather then make requests for additional styles, could the function like 8chan where a Sushi can make their own custom CSS while browsing? If not then could I suggest 2nd image style for the board?
The laws of sushichanOne of the things that we could learn from 4chan and 8chan is that we need to cement our values into rules.
Uncomfy TopicsRecently there have been some threads on lounge that concern me. So, I have some questions for the community:
Should /kawaii/ be SFW?So, the rules have said since before I got here that bewbz were allowed on /kawaii/, but some users have brought up concerns that no NSFW content was on the board until recently and they actually preferred it that way, with NSFW content being restricted to /lewd/. /kawaii/ is currently the only board outside the hell/lewd category with NSFW content, and unlike those two shows in kaitensushi by default, which makes the whole recent posts section NSFW unless /kawaii/ is blocked.
[wildcard]Wildcard used to be just like the wildcard board on uboa. Topic changed every month. I suggest we bring it back (I mean, it's still there, and it's just sitting there unused and forever stuck in STEM), I also think it'll give us something to talk about and boost activity a little.
How do I run this thing?Hey there.
