It has been a few months since I've done a news post so let's get started.
The following boards have been deleted to downsize 3chan:
Both of these boards were trial boards voted on by the community.
/a/ has won another poll so please post on it this time.
/z/ - ZOMG!!1 is looking for a new mod to rule it, so if you've ever wanted to rule your own imageboard send an email to admin at 3chan dot co
And lastly expect minor changes to the software. We are working on big things behind the scenes.
Something that I didn't want to do this time around was add too many boards for such a small site which is why almost all the new boards are trial boards, some of you might've seen this coming.
The anime board
/a/ has failed the trial and has been deleted.
Now onto some really exciting news! /z/ is now open to applications again, if your interested in ruling over /z/ being able to do almost anything you'd like to it then go apply. More information here!
And lastly I've had some free time to implement a few new features to 3chan:
Merry Christmas! because its nicer to get something you actually want the top two highest voted boards in the poll have been added.
Trying to get this site back up and running took a lot longer than I expected... anyway,
We have been hard at work trying to rewrite the entire site, how it looks and what information is shown and also get our once """functional""" software to a place where it can be used publicly. I've made tons of improvements to the software over how it was especially on the admin side.
We have also implemented a brand new experimental feature which is emotes! This is something that I wanted to try out back when I was originally hosting 3chan but I never got around to it.
Some of you might have noticed that the site has been reset this is for two major reasons.
1. The site needs a fresh start.
2. The old database was a mess and also incompatible with the version that I'm using now.
And finally the amount of boards that we had has also been cut down.
/pol/ has not returned since it technically falls under interests and on top of that since /i/ is not a dedicated "Politically Incorrect" board discussion should hopefully be less one sided.
Due to an increase in activity I have brought back one of the archived boards (
3chan has also gotten it's first trial board (
/pol/), thank you to everyone who voted in the poll.
I have decided to archive most of the boards on 3chan to bring the site closer together.
In the future when the site is more active I will hold polls to decide what board(s) are brought back, or even a new board entirely.
Also sorry for the lack of news, all I'm going to say is that a big update is on its way.
As usual general bug fixes have been implemented with some bug fixes coming soon.
I have created a new board
/pig/ for the users of Pigchan to move to, I have also made rebuilt and ported the piggy pink theme from pigchan.
3chan is now on github for those who are interested in supporting the project: https://github.com/Yushe/3chan
Today is 3chan's 1st birthday! only a few months ago 3chan was just a private testing site for imageboard software and now it is a fully public site.
I have decided to add a board dedicated to site discussion so (You) the users have a voice.
Anyway what is new so far? /3/ is a new board for site discussion,
/co/ has been renamed to /m/ to host not just Comics & Cartoons but it now has Comics, Cartoons, TV and Movies to make the area of discussion more broad. I am also planning on adding a music board ( /mu/).
I have introduced a new board to 3chan
/www/ it is a board for internet culture, I will be also using it for public testing of the new version of 3chan's software.
I recommend you to test it out on:
It took a while but we are finally back and with a new and improved imgboard script.
3chan now has more features some of which I'm still trying to fix, so I hope you enjoy all the new features that 3chan has now.
