Chat is here... sort of!
It's been way too long since the site has had a chat and after some Internal Discussion™ I've decided to set up a public chat again using the old 2016 client and a reimplemented sock chat server to hold us off till the proper chat is ready! You can find it at sockchat.flashii.net. It's not really a first class citizen experience yet, but when has it ever been?
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
Don't link/embed images directly from sites like imageboards like 4chan or social media like Twitter, reupload the images to imgur or other sites intended for hosting user content. Social media and imageboards often have hotlink protection preventing embeds or direct links from working, either that or in one particular case embedding a shock image instead. Especially this last one puts you in danger because you'll be held accountable for it from this news post onward.
If you've tried to access the site between 17:00 and 20:00 UTC today you were probably met with error page. This happened because the MySQL Database server that stores all the data had been corrupted. All data has been restored to how it was at 2019-04-30 0:00 UTC, so certain posts may have gone lost.
Suggestions for the Chat
Hey, everyone! Just a heads up that malloc and I are taking feature suggestions for the upcoming chat. You can find the thread here.
And so the 6th year begins
It counts right, even with the intermissions? I wanted to do something big this year but wasn't able to get around to it because of a school project, perhaps next year. I posted a bunch of historic screenshots with a little comment on each of them in celebration on the forum. Let's go many more years!
