Time to close up shop, guys. Short FAQ.Is this about money?
Nope, the site costs about $30 a month and I can easily handle that, especially with the donation drives which have traditionally covered 1/2 to 3/4 of the cost.Why is the site being shuttered then?
Because it's simply not being used. We average a little over two posts a day and have been in a steady decline for years, and we dropped off a cliff after the introduction of discord.When is it closing down exactly?
In a little under two months from now to give everyone enough time to realize what's going on. The exact date is September 12, 2017.Where can I go to talk to my friends?
Well, really by now you should probably have them on steam or skype or whatever. But if you really wanna be one of the cool kids, you can join the official /ef/ discord server, which will be run by Radiance as it has been. You can join it here: https://discord.gg/0tbON7hNgjORWNLc
Anyways, that's it. I've no grand speeches or anything but thanks for the memories, weirdos.
>>394193>AJ#2033 should work, just got an invite from Kurt
Yeh, I thought it'd appear on the list of people from my groups, but when I used the add function it worked as intended.
My bad.>>394428>ponychan's 2edgy4u
You sure you from /ef/?
And sure Mikie. Give it a shot.
i want you guys to give a opinion first
i am thinking about renaming /chat/ to /ef/ because its pretty much the same
>>394530> renaming /chat/ to /ef/
Another option would be to symlink /ef/ to /chat/. I dunno how easy that would be in Tinyboard though.
you mean the total of this group of like 5 people?
Like I said:
> I dunno how things are now
But it wouldn't be the first time an idea like that has caused a handful of people to make a huge fuss.
yeah, i hear ya
it's just an idea
alternatively i can give you guys a board on your own
with your own mods, rules, etc
i appreciate your input, whelp
my thoughts exactly >>394551
i really do care… i consider these places to be home. i know used to be a rapid shitposter
but, even with that. i still love our communities
would you be down to moderate it again?
i am not sure who the mods here are
but they can supplement you too
i wont touch it unless it's spam or something
eitherway, it's up to you
you can still ban pipes
which lets be honest here
Oh no doubt, especially when he does that whole spiel about not caring about it. It's great.
If no one else wants to then it's fine by me.
sounds good to me>>394566
fair, i have come to a solution then.
eh, if it dies it dies
having as a board is nothing stressful or anything
if it doesnt work then it can be deleted
i mean, i get the domain has a stigma attached to it
but at this point, all that is old news.
but what if youre actually zamoonda
I have nothing sarcastic to say.
>adding an /ef/ to ponychan
I guess you can type whatever letters you want into the name of a new board over there, and nobody will stop you.
It would be fairly easy to keep thing running here if people wanted us to do so, I would in fact encourage people to express that sooner than later if that is what they want, but I am not seeing it.
Trying to prolong it on ponychan misses the point of this closure I think. Honestly, dragging it past this point on a different site can only serve to kill the identity this site had.
My concern is that at worst, you'll end up with, same letters, different site, 90% different user base, with lots of ponychan spaz kids, and it's just some unrecognizable unlovable zombie of our community.
Other possibility: it doesn't get too polluted with ponychanners, and an even smaller fragment of this community lives on there, posting once or twice a week, and it's worse inactivity than we already have here.
Are you literally high level improbability: Good ending, somehow everyone is happy and it reunites efchan's userbase and there's activity and we are magically back in 2012.
I care more about the group of people than the concept of the board. Cirklejerk mentality but oh well. Don't expect me to post there.
get outta my house spazzo
You shouldn't bully your imouto like that!
buddy im just trying to help
