  14.  
  15. --- Intro
  16. Greetings. I have spent the past few weeks working hard on stabilizing 8chan
  17. and improving site performance. There are still a few bugs, but quality of life
  18. is improving overall. My real name is Ron, I go by the handle "Code Monkey"
  19. and you can contact me here:
  20.  
  21.     ron <at> 2ch <dot> net
  22.     twitter.com/codemonkeyz
  23.     8ch.net/sudo
  24.  
  25. --- About me
  26. Im an avid poster on /v/, /tech/, /fit/, and I used to be the board owner of
  27. /p/ for a time. I do devops for 2ch and help as a community liaison and admin
  28. there. My favorite programming language is haskell, but I am also proficient
  29. in perl, c, bash, python, etc. Ive been involved in online communities basically
  30. my whole life. Was active on AOL in the mid 90s, then heat.net, vnboards, 4chan,
  31. icq, 8chan, etc. Played online Quake, TM2, TF1, AC, DAOC, EQ, WOW, etc. I
  32. studied chinese literature in school and am fluent in chinese now.  
  33. I am for building the wall.
  34.  
  35. --- Whats going on?
  36. Fred is stepping down as administrator of 8chan and I will be replacing him.
  37.  
  38. --- Why?
  39. It was a unanimous decision between Fred, Jim, and Ron. Fred will still be
  40. working on the site doing technical work like adding new features, fixing bugs,
  41. maintaining codebase, etc. He has not left the organization and you can still
  42. reach out to him through his usual methods of contact.
  43.  
  44. --- Whats next then?
  45. I will now be the main point of contact for community issues.
  46.  
  47. My priorities as admin are:
  48.     * Continue to stabilize the site
  49.     * Improve user experience
  50.     * Promote free speech
  51.     * Hands off approach to moderation
  52.     * Provide more transparency and easier communication
  53.  
  54. What I wont be doing:
  55.     * Banning vpn access
  56.     * Banning onion service access [it is broken currently, but will be fixed]
  57.     * Banning 2d anime/manga cartoon porn of any kind
  58.     * Involving myself in board affairs
  59.  
  60. --- Meritocracy
  61. 8chan is a meritocracy. Boards need to stand and fall on their own. I will not
  62. be interfering in the work of volunteers on the board level. The only rule I
  63. will be enforcing is the global rule found here:
  64.   [ https://8ch.net/faq.html ]
  65.  
  66. --- Whats your stance on CP and photos of children?
  67. I will not tolerate CP. Boards owners should enforce all six criteria stated in
  68. this document:
  69.   [ https://8ch.net/dost.html ]
  70.  
  71. If a board owner is found to not be enforcing the six criteria in this document,
  72. they will be subject to removal and replaced through the claims process.
  73.  
  74. Just to clarify:
  75.   Photos of children in lewd poses, regardless of level of clothing, are to be
  76.   considered CP. These children are being exploited and we will not tolerate
  77.   such content. If you feel that you cannot abide by this rule, then please
  78.   migrate to masterchan et alia.
  79.  
  80. --- Claims
  81. I will be opening up claims again. The new claims email is:
  82.   [ claim@8ch.net ]
  83.  
  84. Please follow the rules on this page:
  85.   [ https://8ch.net/claim.html ]
  86.  
  87. Any claim email sent to the previous claims address will not be answered.
  88. If you have previously made a claim to the old address, then please make a
  89. claim to the new address.
  90.  
  91. If you can provide proof that a board owner is not enforcing the 6 criteria
  92. provided in the dost.html document and you want to claim their board, please
  93. send the proof and claim request and the board will be handed to you. Proof
  94. needs to be hard evidence that they are intentionally not enforcing dost.
  95.  
  96. --- TOR
  97. Do not use tor exit nodes to post on 8chan. They are considered compromised
  98. by cloudflare's captcha. Unfortunately we need cloudflare for the non-tor
  99. traffic, so we cant disable it just for tor. However, we do provide an onion
  100. service for posting:
  101.   [ http://oxwugzccvk3dk6tj.onion ]
  102.  
  103. The 8chan onion service is not compromised, but it is currently broken. We are
  104. in the process of fixing it. Please wait, it will be back soon.
  105.  
  106. --- Transparency
  107. I will begin posting transparency reports, picking up where the previous one
  108. left off.
  109.  
  110. --- Canary
  111. 8chan's warrant canary has not expired and is being monitored by the EFF at
  112.   [ https://canarywatch.org/8chan/ ]
  113.  
  114. --- Open source concerns
  115. 8chan will be returning to full open source compliance in the next few weeks.
  116. I am still not sure if I will be forking the current repository, taking it
  117. over, or if Fredrick will be undeprecating his. These details are to be
  118. announced.
  119.  
  120. --- Call for volunteers
  121. If you are interested in volunteering for a position, please email me with
  122. information relevant to that position.
  123.   [ volunteer@8ch.net ]
  124.  
  125. --- Questions?
  126. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me.
  127.   [ 8ch.net/sudo ]
