    I'm surprised you were able to get it up so fast. Just a few hours is all it took you. Great job, man... err.. woman.. whateva. ;)

    p.s Post on your RDFRN account and let some of the others know, as they may not have seen your previous post. I posted on SlashNet #totse about it.
    The following users say it would be alright if the author of this post didn't die in a fire!

    I can dig it. It's a nice, clean look. There's a few additional subforums I'd like to see but I'm sure those will come with time.

    Yep, nice job on getting it up so fast. Did you happen to have a vB license lying around?

    Also, I've been thinking this over today - what are the safeguards against this place disappearing?

    How's the site financially wise? It's probably cheap to run now and there's no point in thinking about future problems at the moment though.

    What about hosting security and your own security? Looks like site's hosted by ramnode in the US and there's some other info. Are we ok in this department? There's no questionable content and I sure as hell hope we won't get any, but I'm a bit spooked by how the last 3 sites were shutdown.

    If there's no fucking over members or their content for no good reason, there won't be a shutdown. Trust me on that.

    I have to wonder. If I had any faith left, it would go to Lanny, but I have to wonder, even if you do everything right, can it really work? Or should we be trying to find some kind of distributed/darknet platform?

    I reduced the char requirement to 1 a little while ago, it wouldn't let me choose zero, presumably because shitty programming using falsy coercion but w/e, if you really want to make a fully blank post I'm sure you can find the keycode.

    Yep, nice job on getting it up so fast. Did you happen to have a vB license lying around?

    Also, I've been thinking this over today - what are the safeguards against this place disappearing?

    No vB license on hand, downloaded a cracked version. May throw the money at jelsoft at some point but we'll see.

    As for safeguards, that's a good question, I've been thinking about the same issue. So the first thing worth saying is that I'm happy to give the site to someone else, no matter how much of a clusterfuck it is, if I decide I can't take it anymore. That doesn't offer much protection in the case of blackmailing though. I don't think I've done anything that anyone knows about that can be used to blackmail me (I've made peace with the genderfaking thing coming to light, full DGAF mode) but it's something worth considering. I've thought about distributing copies of the database at regular intervals. Passwords should be hashed securely (but it wouldn't surprise me if it was some pussy ass crypto like SHA-1, need to dig into the code) but there doesn't seem to be a way to get around PMs being made public without a BIG code change and all the caveats that come with pbkdf. I'm totally open to ideas here though, I'm willing to do whatever it takes to make a clean transition feasible (ala deadmans triggers that won't let me back out in a blackmail situation) that doesn't compromise user security in the now.

    How's the site financially wise? It's probably cheap to run now and there's no point in thinking about future problems at the moment though.

    Hosting cost is $10 a month at the moment plus $7 a year for the domain or whatever. Will probably bump the hosting fairly soon but the cost is so low I have no need nor desire to defray costs via advertising or anything else.

    What about hosting security and your own security? Looks like site's hosted by ramnode in the US and there's some other info. Are we ok in this department? There's no questionable content and I sure as hell hope we won't get any, but I'm a bit spooked by how the last 3 sites were shutdown.

    Yeah, going with ramnode because they're the best of the low end that I've found but they are american and DMCA compliant. Might think about moving hosting offshore if it's necessary, we'll see how it goes. Latency to Romania is kind of a pain in the ass and I'm ultimately located in the US either way so no level of opsec I'm going to put out will make US-illegal content feasible but I'm willing fight a suit if I think it's possible (based on caselaw) to win and if it comes down to something like torrents where a host ignoring US LE complaints will make it go away then I'd be willing to make the move.

    Also my whois is a funny mix of actual info and made up stuff. Again, I'm not particularly worried about being doxxed, I assume what I post here will eventually be made public anyway.

    Sounds pretty good. I was toying around with the idea of setting up a hidden service running no js - that would not only make things safer but also bring back the sweet web 1.0 days. On the other hand, it could attract some sick fucks.

    I can't imagine what kind of illegal content people could post here, apart from stupid porn or something, but hopefully it won't come to that. A quick search based on the whois revealed you're a real estate agent in Texas.

    Btw, if you ever need a pair of hands to help out on the backend side of things, lemme know.

    Well, that will leave you and your butt-buddies Rocklin and Idio more time to go fuck over whatever member accounts you haven't already shat on over at RDFRN. I'm sure there's still a few left over there to get your dick hard at least a few more times. Oh, and don't let the door hit your dumb ass on the way out.

    Fanglekai's leaving gives me that same feeling that I imagine people get from the doctor telling them that their cancer is in remission.

    Because, make no mistake, those guys were nothing but a cancer to this community.

    Me? I am more like the spongiform encephalopathy of this community.

    I meant to include this in my post above, but fuck it.

    Isn't it a bad thing to admit that this forum software is cracked? Anyone who wants to hurt your forum can just report it to vbulletin. Wouldn't put it past fanglekai or one of those other guys to do just that.
