Current Software Status

NeXTCHAN is currently running Blazechan 0.11.0+git20180611.

I want a feature added!

https://gitgud.io/blazechan/blazechan/issues/new
Please remember that not all requests are doable and currently Blazechan has a backlog of feature requests already.
Update 2018-06-11: I currently only have time for very minor fixes and as such cannot do feature requests. Additionally, a major backend refactor is planned, therefore no feature requests will be done until that (expected August in the latest).

faggot mod triggered by this post
reason: VPN ban evasion

do you want your board flooded with CP followed by a report to the feds?
watch your mouth faggot. i own you.


lol White, not white. you need to capitalize that shit kike and show respect to your superiors. enjoy the video of Breton Tarrant's heroic purge shill hahah great post, I should give my fight for the White race now right? hahaha fuckin tard. your people will lose, its your destiny kike

>RAM

Simply the beginning, as I said, they will find something else and come back. Why should they stop? It is simply the truth, until they have something to lose, why should they stop, hmm? Gilad Atzmon described it best, the tribe operates on Pre-TSD. RAM could be completely harmless but it won't stop the kikes from dreaming up 1,000,000 things strong white men would like to do to them, and they will act again against RAM, based on that. Because it costs them nothing! Count on it.

>the law doesn't matter

stop being a black pilled little bitch. link related.
https://dailyarchives.org/index.php/reports/2502-judge-tosses-all-charges-in-white-nationalist-rioting-plot

who gives a shit about chans, they've served their purpose anyway. the genie is out of the bottle and Whites are starting to wake up; slowly but surely. just look at jewtube comments, its only going to get more mainstream. the overton window is shifting.

also, if shitposting, moderation, and taking a few hours a week to just spread redpills is "too tiresome" for you, then I hate to see how you would feel when your camped out on a hill for two weeks taking notes on an enemy position after your rations have been depleted for a few days and you are recycling your piss through the fabric of your pants for drinking water, should an actual internal type war break out

> we need to post alternatives and share them if we plan on having an easily accessible place to communicate and share ideas.

why not share websites through secure chats? between anons? use something like wire or riot.im


Oh, and regarding the law you mentioned, I do not believe anything on that front matters. They will simply continue to do whatever harms anyone of European origin; if it is through legal means, and it doesn't stick, they will simply do it again, and again, for it costs them nothing.


The problem is none of the uncompromised ones are secure against the sort of tactics they use now. If I were to share them everywhere, they'd be ruined within the month.

This could be a failure of not having a Hitler-equivalent in the admin position that can't be swayed by a kike's lies or tricked in some way, or perhaps he's too afraid to override someone in a lower position who is tricked, or the platform is too vulnerable to financial abuse tactics. Or mod burnout / churn. Or any number of things. It's all so tiresome.

Also, they are quite small and the culture would be harmed if not destroyed. Yet, they can be sought out by the determined. And some aren't even imageboards, since Hasbara has them pretty figured out by now. You need a place where you have accounts and bans stick, or you're just flooded by disruption shills and the people who reply to them who may or may not actually be the same shill. I warned about this very thing after With Open Gates blew up on 8/pol/ and it was blown off, then look what happened.

So no, idealistic hubris isn't our best bet at the moment.


64ddb4 here. I completely agree with everything you had to say except for the part about sharing non-compromised platforms. neinchan is pretty fucking lame to put it lightly. But we need to post alternatives and share them if we plan on having an easily accessible place to communicate and share ideas. They will all get infiltrated sooner or later; we just need sharp mods and opsec minded anons. glowniggers cant prosecute free speech and if the platform is anonymous, such as this one, then they will be too lazy to investigate anyway.
BTW, the ninth circuit actually did something right for a change last year when they ruled that an IP address alone is not enough to prosecute for a crime. They were probably just covering for their pedo buddies that ride the lolita express but i'm still happy with the ruling. remember this and use a vpn that does not keep logs.
https://web.archive.org/web/20190417150435/https://www.techspot.com/news/76190-us-court-appeals-ip-address-isnt-enough-identify.html

Neinchan is run by faggots who are too lazy to do any Opsec and thus use Discord, and they've herded so much discussion to it that the actual imageboard is pretty dead. Whenever this is pointed out to them they go "but muh voice chat", which of course is being recorded by ADL / Feds. 10/10 honeypot for the kind of brainlet that went to Charlottesville.

As for real alternatives, it isn't smart to post them where they can be found by plebs.

a lot of valid points have come up in this discussion. i cant please everyone and i shouldnt try to please everyone as someone else is already doing that anyways. instead i should just focus on the niche aspects that fill an overlooked void that this place kina did originally.
as for this place i think ill reopen the 8ch board to use as primary either tomorrow or later this week, this place will remain as a bunker. well be going back to the vanilla/sfw

>Mimicking 2d art styles in 3d.

It's doable, I'm just too inexperienced. You'll love this guy's work:

>I doubt most people make their own models whenever they make an animation.

Most just edit parts in because it's a pain in the ass. I do it the hard way since I like to hurt myself. Unfortunately, some parts are tougher to fix if you switch phases.

>Either that or maybe source film maker, the thing most people use, doesn’t support fur in animation.

You're definitely correct about it. 3D currently handles fur as a particle effect. It looks good in renders, but it performs terribly when you're doing games because the poly count increases from the hair strands. There are currently three ways that games handle it:
1. Creating a material and texturing it.
https://www.invidio.us/watch?v=sD1FzUc9x2c
2. Creating large strands of hair through quads, texturing it:
https://www.invidio.us/watch?v=6xBMcnx2Kkk
3. Using 3d shaders:
Maybe there could be a fur shader where it patches every area and ignores the "flesh vertex color". Similar to how Grass shaders work. Apparently, UE4 got the "Shave and a Haircut" plugin and they plan on releasing it for free.
https://www.unrealengine.com/en-US/programs/shave-and-a-haircut/shave-and-a-haircut-v9-6-for-maya

This is somethings that's been bothering me for a while. A lot of 3d furry artwork, as well as some 2d artwork that I see doesn't actually seem “furry” to me. With 2d art it makes sense to me. Not only does it seem like a bitch to draw detailed fur, but you can make art that looks good stylistically and indicate fur with good line-art. But with 3d artwork you can’t really do such a thing easily. And since most 3d artwork is more photo-realistic the stylistic choices don’t work well. Some artwork does try to fake the appearance of fur with the texturing but it comes off as flat (this also happens in 2d sometimes), while others just have fur-colored skin.
Is there something I’m missing in this? I’m not too involved with the furry fandom but I’ve started noticing this more, but the few times I check out a furry board I rarely hear people mentioning this. I’m also trying to get into art but I don’t know anything about drawing or 3d modeling. A couple of factors come to mind
1. Mimicking 2d art styles in 3d.
Most furry artwork is 2d and stylized, so most 3d artists try to recreate it. Similar to how a lot of people model 3d anime characters (which usually don’t work)
2. Hair is hard
Maybe many 3d models come from games, and they need to skip fur otherwise the computers couldn’t handle it. I doubt most people make their own models whenever they make an animation. Either that or maybe source film maker, the thing most people use, doesn’t support fur in animation.
3. People don't like the look.
Could be a case of uncanny valley, where art begins to look too realistic.

What do you guys think about this? Besides that, post 3d artwork that actually looks like it has fur I guess?
It’s beginning to worry me how much shit I overlook when I’m busy fapping in terms of quality. I’ve been busy looking for examples and it’s always amazing to me how shit porn looks when you are not horny.

Hopefully this doesn't double post.

>projects motivate me to learn fast if it done in behalf of the community

I definitely agree on that. It's just that making a whole game is a lot more involved than it seems at first, and when you're grinding the stuff that's beneath the surface for months or even years, internet people's preferences start to matter less. It works better for art requests because you can finish it within a day. Maybe some hypothetical group/community project that I've never seen work out before would stay interesting. ...or maybe they never work out because it doesn't.

But anyway if you're gauging opinions then I myself don't have big preferences in terms of theme or even genre as long as the game is fun or interesting. I'm not very fond of real life-based military stuff though (unless it involves fantasy elements ala Age of Mythology).

>a good alternative to 8gag?

there aren't too many right now that I can think of. This place isn't too bad because there are visitors but not many anons contributing content at the moment. I ahte to say it but neinchan is kind of the alt to 8gag right now. its obvious controlled op though. during Brenton Tarrent's heroic purge, mods were posting up the typical kike d&c by claiming it was a mossod op and the BT was a mossad operative. plus, they have google ads which is a big red flag as well as annual paid subscription passes.

> Are any zeronet chans worth checking out?

I haven't been on zeronet since last year after I found multiple bitcoin mining trojans on my system. but that does seem like decentralization will be the future due to an increasing censorship.
also, assuming your not a glownigger of sorts, why in the fuck are you posting an email?


So something like /ic/? You want to do practice stuff like gesture drawings, studies, and composition? I can give the resources, but a lot of people aren't motivated to do it. It's pretty tricky to handle because you have to give advice in a way where people become motivated to continue learning.


I'm no expert on original content, but at least from what I've seen, the "Best" OC are the ones that have the "YOLO look at what I can do!" attention grabbing, shocking, and humorous value to it. What also helped that it looked simple and easy to make so anyone could spend 30 minutes in their favorite image manipulation program and get instant results. Like the simple photoshop mock-up that was done into a comic about how Red Anon went into disguise and fucked some furfag's fursona. There are also some other photos that I see get tossed around similar in nature about the fursona being upset that humans were being photoshopped into her commissions. It doesn't have to be that, it could just be simple nonsense. In short, I believe the best original content is easy to make Yolo swag that appeals to the audience.
Now, the kind of original content I see that doesn't get very much reaction is usually just plain art in general. I think the issue with it is that there is a high barrier to entry to even get started, like a month of practice without giving up, buying a tablet, and low return on investment if you don't immediately sell out to start drawing tons of commissions. This is all compounded by the general learned self helplessness that more people now than ever in history seem to have.
I think the best approach to this is having an art thread (not an OC thread) that accomplishes these thing: it can sell to the people as to why they might want to get good at drawing, it assists people who actually do want to get good at drawing, and it contains art that people want to see (as opposed to being a personal art blog where a handful of artists just continually post generic drawings that most observers could care less about).
I think this can be applied to the vast majority of threads where people produce and post their content. A place where it is easy for people to see what they want and their goal of producing what they want is within easy reach because it is effectively demonstrated that reaching that goal can be accomplished.
In the real world, I offer the example are the Pietenpol Air Camper and Caterham 7 variants. They are very simple vehicles that anybody who is good at following instructions can make for very little cost and effort (in terms of airplanes or cars of course) and can easily be personalized to meet their own preferences. Among hobbyist, they are very popular choices.


I tried all of the engines and I have a surface-level knowledge about them since I made a few prototypes. I'm really itching to apply my math and coding skills along with art. I think that projects motivate me to learn fast if it done in behalf of the community since it's more focused, but I'll follow your advice and make my own project.

I get what you're talking about, but I think OC just brings discussion in general. Clean OC is definitely a bonus as more people share that type of content.


I would just like to express my observations on boards and porn for a moment. I personally haven't seen quality discussion come from any board that is driven primarily by eroticism. Most of these places are infested with the lowest common denominator who is incapable of providing any discussion outside of repeating their "My miscegenation fetish is better than your miscegenation fetish," mantra. Could it possibly be because their self induced porn addiction effectively lowered their own cognitive abilities? Even the most "vanilla" board has difficulty with discussion outside of, "What monstergirl do you want to get raped by?" and can be easily provoked into rage by simply bringing up very specific anime characters with a non-orthodox nose because "We only masturbate to the correct noses," or how abnormal amounts of skin pigmentation is directly correlated to fried chicken consumption.
Unfortunately these penile pleasure seeking mouth breathers make up the majority population and are dead weight to the goal of serious discussion. They might make an excellent source of IPs for short term growth and an artificial appearance of a large and active board, but once the novelty wears off, their fleeting attention spans will send them to their next novel source of images to masturbate to demanded by the coolidge effect. They are not good for long term sustainability and are not a good source of quality anything. By attempting to give these people what they want, you are setting yourself up to fail by trying to compete in what is simply an oversaturated market.
A complete ban on porn will definitely drive these worthless addicts away. It would also give you an instant monopoly on boards where discussion can actually come first. All things considered, you don't really have that much to loose if you decided to run this board the way you actually want it.

Dead board? If so, could someone recommend me a good alternative to 8gag? Are any zeronet chans worth checking out? I appreciate any suggestions. bepisipeb@mail.com

>what boards did you run and how long have you ran them

Moderating mostly meant setting the rules/stickies and deleting spam, so it's not like I feel more 'qualified' about anything than anyone else. I made both /boards/ and /art/ in the early days of 8chan and "ran" the latter for a year or two. Claimed /agdg/ at some point but lost interest and gave it away not too long after. Currently holding onto a board more dead than this because the previous BO disappeared.


im not really worried tbh only retards will take it at face value and do zero investigation.

most of our ideas or goals id say line up 85% so there really isnt much else to discuss. what boards did you run and how long have you ran them? i ask because if true then youre better qualified to talk since we both have similar goals and experience in moderating.

>Because of him, there are now allegations that this place is big on schizophrenia and tupla threads

Wasn't really my intention, though it's also not my intention to sugarcoat my words when raging at shit that annoys me on imageboards.

Also, I feel kind of sorry for unleashing years worth of pent up mad about this topic at you guys. There's an internal conflict in me where part of me doesn't want to cause harm to this board and still holds hope that it might be(come) a nice place to visit sometimes, but there's another part that thinks good fucking riddance because you can get the same content from /fur/ now except with a lot more activity so nothing's really lost even if this place dies.

>if enough people want to move back we can

I'm not really asking for that. I'd have preferred the board to stay in 8ch until a solid place was found, but since it's already here it's probably kinda redundant to go back. I would be willing to accept this website if it at least worked correctly on my main browser.

>i recall like one nay sayer

Probably me. Other than not being able to post (which I suspected there would be some kind of a workaround for or maybe the server was just acting up by chance) I wasn't completely opposed to this whole thing because I thought it would be the same board in a different website. But instead the website turns out to have more problems than just posting, successfully posting immediately revealed yet another thing that's broken about it (ID doesn't appear on loaded posts), board-based IDs are enabled, the rules have become lenient to the point it's barely different from /fur/, then I run into a muscle fetish thread right off the bat and there's effectively nothing else here, and then subsequently get reminded that /furry/ is still being squatted by some discord tranny who has no interest of actually making use of the board so if I want my own the only option is to make furry board #9001 from scratch and start actively shilling it. It's the kind of moment where you slap your monitor off the desk and go "fuck this fuck you fuck everything I'm done with the internet".

>when i banned porn and scrubbed it from the board a while ago people complained

I wouldn't personally care. I literally would not give a single solitary shit for the reasons I've already mentioned; there's porn in almost literally every single furry community, including 1 in 4chan and 2 8chan. Meanwhile there's 0 furry boards in any active imageboard that isn't filled with porn. Porn is the worst kind of degenerative instant gratification that inspires and motivates nothing besides desiring for more of it, demanding for it to be allowed in literally every community is an admission that you have 0 self restraint as far as I'm concerned.

>the more fetishes i have to specify and manage the more the place just turns into a personal fap folder for a very specific audience.

There's 3 problems I have with this. First you're implying that this board is going to largely contain material to jack off to, as opposed to topics of discussion and interesting content and material to be appreciated in some way (which by the way is already defined as the mission statement of /fur/ https://8ch.net/fur/res/25183.html but due to having "relaxed" rules for the sake of more activity fails to accomplish it). Second you're implying that this board needs to be for everyone. The vast majority of furries are gay degenerates who masturbate to weird fetishes all day and obsess over it to the point to paying literal thousands of dollars to get their OC into a digital porn picture that they have no creative control over, either you accept that or you accept being a very niche board. And thirdly you're implying that it's difficult to specify extreme fetishes, and 3 meter tall meat barrels with horsecocks that squeeze comparatively tiny people inbetween their muscles is vanilla enough.

>the loose rules in act right now are just mainly to reduce anxiety about what is and isnt allowed to be posted

That's good in theory until someone starts filling the board with weird fetishes because it's allowed, which already happened as far as I'm concerned.

>people expect me to do everything for them

I've been the BO on a couple slightly active boards before and that's true. Even if you tell people to request anything and basically let them run the board, they don't really tell you anything. Though I'm telling you exactly what I want, and you're telling me "no", which to be fair is your prerogative, but it's also my prerogative to spew around my angry afterwards. I know what I want is unusual and /fukemo/ isn't even really a "no porn" board, but I have a good reason for wanting it, and it's that a porn board already exists, it's called every furry board.

>Godot, Unity, or UE4?

If you're asking this question then you're not going to make a game from here out. If you want to get into gamedev more then Godot is mostly a meme but could in theory be used for basic games, Unity is the easiest and not that bad if you know what you're doing (it has a bad reputation mostly because 99% of people don't), UE4 has the highest maximum potential but is mostly suited for big 3D games with fancy graphics and is in most cases overkill for indies. /agdg/ may suggest making your own engine and while it's not as hard as it sounds, you need to really love programming and have low technical standards for your game.

>Which genre/setting

You should make what interests you personally, otherwise you'll run out of motivation to work on it. Also I'd recommend thinking of the game first, separated from furries. If you think too hard about the theme first it becomes hard to make a good game around it.



Why give this fagtron the time of day? Because of him, there are now allegations that this place is big on schizophrenia and tupla threads. Now no one will want to come here because he wanted to be a fucking victim attention whore.


why no 4chan?
