Lunachan has moved to http://getchan.net/luna/


/chat/ - Lunachan merger

Hello everyone! As you've noticed, Lunachan has been deader than the Town With No Name, and its original purpose of being a bunker for posters sick of Ponychan (and later, other chans) has kind of dissipated as the chans have spread out. That being said, there are talks of merging with a group of other chans merging together. Lunachan aside, for a long while, there was a lot of bickering and infighting, and since the bickering has pretty much died down, and since they were splinters already, they are going to be forming an "interchan" group, the USSC (Union of Soviet Socialist Channels, GETchan has a fetish for Communism)

That being said, there is discussion of Lunachan Joining the USSC, as /luna/. Since /luna/ (as far as I know at least) would be the only chan with ponies, /luna/ would basically be a cross between our /chat/ and /pony/. The USSC would have a global /site/ for issues in any of the subchans.

Thoughts? This isn't happening right this second, but I'll let everyone know when it's happening officially

Not that I really have anything against it, but Lunachan isn't really involved in the socialism aspect

No. 97026
Still here but still days pass with not thinking to look. The thing is, it's in a bit of a chicken and egg problem at the moment of "no posts, and therefore no reason to come and post"

Flutter thread fell over because for the most part it was carried by 2 of us, who got a bit tired of the influx of shitposters last year. I'm not sure what the other chans are like and if they're as "shitposty", which could make it worse. But then it could be argued that it's better than "noposty" maybe.

We also have a problem with spam - when I remember I put the mod hat on and clean up but admittedly remembering isn't so frequent when it's so quiet. We could really do with prevention, like CAPTCHAs or something. I know at least one who used to be very regular is too afraid to visit any more unless I log on and let them know it's safe first, since they saw some child erotica spam.

Not sure I like the idea of being just a pony section of a non-pony imageboard. I'd rather smaller pony related chans combine if anything like that happened.

Or, we have a concentrated posting and antispam drive and let everyone know and see if it can be revived.

It's understandable, I have Lunachan open in browser tabs, and especially when work is busy and I'm getting home late, I don't think to check (though I guess I could start checking at work during down time).

There have certainly been a bunch of "shitposters" and those are just annoying, and make you want to give up.

Remembering to moderate is definitely hard when it's quiet. The thing about those kinds of measures is that they can be frustrating, especially on mobile. If we could get the new reCAPTCHA that is just a checkbox, that would be very awesome.

Concentrated posting and antispam would be awesome. But you know, that might be tricky (mostly getting people posting again).
No. 97028
>>97027
It'd have to be a sort of campaign, I think, for a posting drive to work.

I'm thinking that the CAPTCHA would only have to be done once per device/browser than it sets a cookie and doesn't need it again.

I'd like Lunachan to stay its own independent site personally. That's just my opinion anyways.

awww, i'd really like lunachan to stay what it is.. i'd love for it to pick back up to the way it used to be (though acknowledge i don't help much by always dropping by but never posting anymore..) it's been dead though for sure.. but i'd really like if there were a way we could keep it alive as it is? would be sad to see it become just a single board on another site... that wouldn't really be lunachan to me..

For those of you who are concerned and wanting to keep Lunachan independent, if you look at the poll results and your GETchan thread, it's sounding like we might stay independent

Cool

It still really lies in your hands, it is your site after all, and we are a bit crap at keeping it alive. Can't say it's somewhere that would attract me personally though

Majority of votes are for it to stay individual. I'd say keep it that way.

However, in the end it's up to you. Do what you feel is best for the chan. I'll still support the decision, despite lack of participation on my end.

Funny how everyone crawls out of the woodwork at a time like t this :p
(Just teasing of course)
But for those of you who this applies to, especially the ones who it really applies to (Questing, Sunset, Vines, Omm) how did you find out about this?

>>97062
>>97071
With the way the site is, having lost its original purpose (the pchan drama has died down anyway), maybe this was inevitable
Not necessarily the merger, but dying anyway

That's probably what will happen, though considering the other sites purpose, they kind of at the very least put q link there anyway

Man there's no need for you to do this right now and make yourself feel bad for what you did. While I am disappointed that you did just leave I am ecstatic that you are here right now. We can put this behind us if you really wanted to. You know I never gave up that one day I'll see you again, yeah there were times I was felt sad wondering where you ran off to but there were also times where I felt happiness of just thinking of the fun times we had together.

Ha, take a guess what we just did.

Thank you for the apology I really do appreciate it. To be honest I don't even know where to begin. I could just ask where you have been but it seems wrong to just get right into that. I'm just surprised that you're here? I don't really know how to put it

Maybe, and MLP being a bandwagon is a bit "3 years ago" so the fandom's probably past peak pony popularity (but nowhere near dead yet, mind!) so things have settled down a bit. I still think it's a nice place to do a bit of "ponychan lite" though - the thing itself can be a bit full-on, and sometimes you want to make a couple of posts and come back later, as opposed to dumping 4 hours into a HAY thread.. so I do think it serves a purpose, when we remember to come here!
