Mods/admin said a rules page was coming when the site came back but it hasn't happened yet. Most who were on the various old boards are just assuming the old rules are in play.
What were the old rules?
Shouldn't reinstating those be a priority? Not having a clearly stated 18+ policy on a porn server is risky to say the least.
It'd be good to have clear rules for boards that don't have any currently either, like this one right now.
Looking at the Chiri threads you linked and the rules Big Guy posted on the discord, it doesn't seem like rules are a high priority for Rexxar. In fact from the way he writes them himself, it looks like he doesn't even want to deal with them at all. It'll probably have to be on the users and the mods to make any of it happen.
The 18+ policy has always been like pulling teeth here. There was no policy on it until Chiri mentioned it in 2016 and now it's gone again. On the discord, it wasn't considered a priority at all and now that it's there, it has a passive-aggressive "it's not my responsibility" post attached to it.
It's never seemed like something that's been all that important to any admin that's run barachan, which really says a lot.
It's a shit excuse when it comes to the law. It's one thing to realize that people will lie about their age but another entirely to allow minors to be on an adult site. It's against the law for good reason.
It has nothing to do with the bigger picture though.
An 18+ notification has to do with the law. If it's not there, there's nothing to protect you if a complaint goes down. If you're not actively stating the age limit and enforcing it, you create an all ages site. The people in charge of the board could get in a lot of legal trouble and have no defense.
It's a terrible excuse because it puts the board and its users at risk, just because kids lie. By that logic, businesses shouldn't check IDs and dating apps shouldn't have an age limit.
Admin abandoned us and we might have one semiactive mod. This site is a walking corpse.
Do not expect it to keep up on its own; even if you post in this forum, it will no longer be a site of your choice.If that isn't enough, even if this was really modded like this, we don't really want to take any credit for it."I used several of their scripts in my own mods. I hope they all found their way to the mod, and don't mind having a modding site for them. It's only a matter of doing so, and putting it in a usable format.If you liked this, consider helping me out with another mod; this probably means helping with something in other realms as well, if one existed. Just let me know of the requests, and if you are interested in supporting me, I'd love to be able to pay it and be able to maintain quality.
Rexxar's never gonna do it. Does he even do anything around here besides shitting out the money for the servers?
he does on the discord if you @ him lol
there's like 5 people that keep him on speed dial whenever they want him to ban someone
Does he really ban people that easy?
My selfish ass….
So can we post hetero/bi content in alt again or no…or does no one even care what goes on over there lol? I just wanna be sure.
There's still trolling on the discord all the time.
One of the active people there called people from Mexico "venomous niggers" not too long ago.
I think you called someone a "nigger faggot" too.
For whatever reason Rexxar allows you guys to do it.
Someone on the discord got banned for posting straight porn.
I don't know if the board is any different though.
From this thread, it doesn't seem like people want any rules.
>Hence the recent pickup in activity here.
Trolls or not, I'm glad there's some activity again. Barachan's been pretty dead ever since it came back.
The rule should still be there. Just putting a warning up asking the user to confirm their age is enough to keep the site safe from a takedown.
Can you guys shut the fuck up about discord? Nobody cares about your vapid catfights. It's just annoying. The only people who care about who's right are the people involved in the retarded argument.
Exactly. Most of the people on barachan over the years have the opinion that minors are gonna come here anyway, so why bother? The main reason 18+ rules exist is to protect the people on the site. Refusing to add it shows how little the admin cares about the site and the users.
On top of that, even if it wasn't about protecting us legally, would you really be OK with a minor saving your nudes and interacting with you sexually?There's no reason not to have it.
Dude, you sound fucking crazy. Don't try to tank this thread too.
Seriously, if you're gonna go off-topic then fuck off. Nobody gives a fuck about that thread.
>it's a community
Not really. It's a chan, so most people are Anonymous. It's hard to say that's a community. Whatever happened on Discord isn't relevant here.
>YOU'RE A BIGOT!!!!!
I brought back the Straight / Bi thread, and it welcomes Bi stuff too…http://boards.barachan.org/alt/res/5740.html
It's only labeled the Straight Thread out of continuity, but you can think of it as the Straight / Bi thread. I almost called it the Straight Bara thread, but then there would've been this whole debate on what is bara and what's not. Just look at the previous threads to find out. Also, if you think the thread should be a little different, then let me know since it's only been a few hours.
He's got issues man, Idk. lol He does this a lot.>>1272
Nice! I don't know exactly why it happened that way off the board, but it's cool that it's still open here.
As long as I have a thread to share and find more stuff it's fine as is. Thank you :3
Also you put in a lot of work here, were you previously a mod on one of the older boards or are just a passionate fan?
Anyone else notice the bumping in /ptr as well?
I don't personally mind it, but I would think that staff would have done something about it seeing as like 50% of comments are just bumps
Still nothing going on with the rules. I hope whoever ends up owning the boards next is more competent than Tanz or Rexxar. I don't get why an 18+ rule wouldn't be their first priority. "No CP" isn't an 18+ rule.
Thanks, I appreciate it!
>were you previously a mod on one of the older boards or are just a passionate fan?>or are just a passionate fan?>passionate
Anon, I… might have a problem. ;P
Speaking of rules, is anyone here currently in the UK? I'm wondering how those new laws are affecting you now. They said that spanking, bondage, restraint, and even consensual verbal abuse or whatever cannot be produced by any artist. But they also had that credit-card age check thing. Does anyone here have experience with that?
The UK sucks at law lol
Depending on where the boards are hosted, I don't think that'd have to be a concern. Even for people that visit from the UK.
I just noticed a big troll thread on 3D got deleted but no one from the team has commented here about the rules.
I don't know if it's even worth it to be honest. This place is so slow that you can see threads from a year ago on page 6. It's only a matter of time until it's dead again.
Damn, you're still so salty about getting kicked from the Discord that even now you're trying to impersonate me? How pathetic is that…
On the actual subject, I agree that the rules on here aren't really made easily visible to everyone, and in practice it's mostly just one guy (Rexxar, the space owner) taking out problem stuff when it gets brought to his attention. The assumption I think is that this is a fairly tight-knit community who should know what the rules are, but clearly there is some room for improvement.
wtf is going on lol
Can you guys just fuck off? This is the second time this 2B shit has polluted the thread.
Then again, I really don't see the rules changing anytime soon. It honestly feels like a huge waste of time. Apparently we're just supposed to assume it's 18+ because someone said it some time some where or something. No wonder shit is such a mess around here when it takes days for shit to get moderated and the dude in charge doesn't even care to comment on our feedback.
Discord culture is filled with cringy ERPing kids and self-righteous pricks like you. I prefer chan culture any day of the week. If the Discord is so active, then please, do us all a favor and stay there.
So, to be clear, the guy in >>1257 , >>1264 , >>1267 , >>1269 , >>1288 and >>1290 isn't me, the 2B who's been posting on /dis/, it's some dude impersonating me, likely one of the guys who got banned from the Discord a while back. My literal first post on this thread has been >>1289
, the rest is some random weirdo who's succeeded in clowning you both. If you're mad at "2B" polluting the thread, just watch out for the guy without a tripcode and tell him to piss off.
That I can completely agree with, there isn't really an excuse not to put up clear rules and gatekeep minors from sexual spaces like these, and the lack of that backfired. We could talk endlessly about what could've been done better (and a LOT could have been done better), but at this point what has happened has happened and won't change; the best we can do is hopefully get Rexxar to agree on a basic ruleset, including explicitly excluding minors from the space, and post it on the front page of the board.
this board has been a shitshow from day one (and so have most of the patreon-era iterations) and this thread is just concrete proof of that
If he hasn't said anything about it in the nearly 3 weeks the thread has been active, then I don't have very high hopes. What else is going on around here? He's had to have seen it.>>1295
Tell me about it. The users are divided over barring minors from an adult community and would rather dwell on some retarded trans thread, and then you have an admin that only shows up to moderate when he feels like it.
I'd like to see a rule that any OP automatically gains mod status JUST for their OWN created threads
That would be very entertaining
3 weeks to the dot.
Glad to know posting porn for minors isn't a concern in the slightest.
dunno about entertainment but it sure would help a lot keeping your own threads clean of all the non-topic bullshit people just love to leave. freedom of speech is a very good and needed thing, but it's not equal to leaving bullshit everywhere as you please
The 2B impersonator posts have been deleted.
Anyway, we're sorry for the lack of rules up to this point. We will have a new rules page up soon.
What about that tripfag though? I don't trust any of them.
Thanks man. Great to hear it'll be up soon.
Old board wouldn't allow all these private trade threads in RS. Honestly I don't think that's for the right sub, or even the right board.
I'm so fucking glad someone brought it up, it's really douche-y when we're looking for something and someone comes into the thread like HAHA I have it but you have to have what I want if you want it :)))
Either way, I'd like if a rule on trading posts were made/enforced. They're almost never successful, and pretty annoying to look at
I don't see a problem with private trading at all.
If you want to make sure that your request gets 100% fulfilled, you trade.
But a separate section just for trading or similar stuff would be advisable sure>>1452>>1453
That is annoying to read, wonder if any of those posted E-mails ever receive anything?
Hijacking a request and plastering "I got this, you don't" shouldn't be allowed
I think there should be a general rule on how to correctly request stuff, eg simply posting a picture and a text saying "want this" is NOT the way to go
And requests that obviously won't go anywhere should get deleted to make space
Doesn't like what you see in the mirror? do, re, mi
Honest question, no malice intended:
What's going on with /mon/? Mods wrote that it's locked but there's still new posts going up
It seems to be a problem with vichan's code (the image board software we're using).
We would appreciate it if you guys didn't post there, though. Thanks.
Why delete /mon/? It works well and those threads don't really fit /2D or /fur because they look too weird. I remember /etc and /gray were great because those threads didn't pollute the other boards with aliens, beasts, and whatever. Rexxar said he removed them to help us find images better, but /2D and /fur will be more crammed now and you have to use the catalog more often. They had a nice medium speed that's better than 4chan or u18, but more threads will be pushed out sooner because of more monster threads.
When I go to /2D I expect normal humans, and when someone goes to /fur they want normal furries. The /mon threads were for the weird and strange, not /alt but close, just like /etc and /gray. I hope Rexxar isn't trying to make this site more popular, because being less popular attracts fewer spammers and trolls, and mostly everyone here is pretty nice and comfortable. Is there any way we can change his mind?
I agree. Characters like Skeletor, Thanos, X-Men Beast do not equal "furries". Also, that board is seriously active because there's like 8,000 new furry pieces released every day. The monster stuff is going to get buried quickly.
Why are Orcs, Cyclops, Gorons, Trolls and whatever in /fur, and Pumpkinheads, Jiren, Ganon, and Lobo in /2D. How does that make sense? Just bring /mon back and hire more mods or janitors if needed. Ask for volunteers.
My posts keep getting deleted
Any update on a rules? Maybe just get Bara Archiver to post a thread and sticky it on the home page, each sub or just as a rules page?
Someone reposted my picture over at /rs here… >>>/rs/8545
For anyone curious, the rules were posted as their own page.
This quote is pretty funny, "Breaking any of the Strict Rules will result in me personally coming to your house, putting my dick in your face while you sleep, and then perma-banning you off the board. So don't do it."
The front page had news and updates…
The older version had a frame to the left with links, which could include simple rules and can be closed.
2015 seems so long ago but just as I thought shit has been the same for years so thanks! Now could 1 mod take 2mins to copy/paste one of those to the front page or it's own page for new users who don't know how this has worked for years? Or tell us there are no rules. Just be clear.
>>Still nothing going on with the rules. I hope whoever ends up owning the boards next is more competent than Tanz or Rexxar.
Considering the spam I feel like we'll probably be without a board again soon but I'd be glad to be proven wrong.
You're welcome! :)
The new page could include news, a FAQ, and some tips for posting, like getting larger Twitter pics, saving from archived threads, or even formatting codes. It'll take time since there's probably only one mod here, not including Rexxar who's very busy at the Discord channel. The Discord updates faster and probably has more users, giving more work there.
