The Current Plan

So you might have noticed to forum is fucking dead, well that's because I haven't linked it anywhere yet :kyoko-smug:. Except for a channel on the discord server, so if you are here it's because of that orcause I sent you a DM on twitter.

What I'm waiting for? Before I start posting it around, I want a few things finished
  1. Content: Like the Kyuotto's thread, I need to make several threads like those for the new users to see as an example of what they can do, also general interaction is useful
  2. Guides: Basically guides on how to use the forum, formating, how to archive, external image hosts, etc, because most of the audience probably never used a forum or they never used one in at least 10 years.
  3. We need a name for the forum, varishangout doesn't really make it apparent what this site is meant to be, any suggestions?
  4. Allow users to create accounts using twitter. But for that first we need a developer account, and it takes time for twitter to approve one.
  5. Possibly a new url?
  6. Properly organizing the subforums, as you can see I can't decide yet on how many sub forums we need, or for what, still thinking about that.
  7. A few other things I can't remember right now
And it takes time, especially the first two (because I have to do it mostly myself), ETA should be hopefully 7 days, but who knows.
When all of this is finished I will start actively shilling the website both on my twitter and the discord server. If the performance doesn't go to shit I will keep posting links to it every time I make a thread or somebody makes an interesting thread.
Unlike the other sites (like the imageboard) I have a lot of interest to get this forum going, this place serves as an archive and a source for the things I'm interested to talk about, also it's a way to hopefully combat censorship and cancer culture. My discord server originally was meant to be that, but since it's a chat it wasn't really too useful for it, anything important would get buried quickly and everyone kept talking over each other, so it wasn't good. Also it fucking sucks, I have to obey their stupid fucking rules and it's in constant threat of getting deleted, we already got a warning from discord staff because people were posting lewd lolis, fuck that bullshit.
In this place we have absolute freedom and nobody can fucking take this place from us. Also the forum software is by far superior to either discord or twitter, it just takes some time to get used to it.

I am really serious when I say I want to see this place alive, and I will do anything it takes to get that, even if that means going around DMing people to get them to join

If everything fails I will just keep autistically posting myself as a personal archive

Don't market this place in a way that'll just attract nothing but culture warriors. Even if they're /ourguy/s. It'd be nice if it's populated with people who aren't JUST interested in being twitter warrior autists.

It'd be cool if it was a place where we can just chill and like the degenerate shit we like without being harassed by random assholes. If anything, that should be the main draw of the forum. Nobody here would cancel you for posting shit like lolis or having spicy takes. Basically a safe community.

Particularly, I think convincing loli drawfags who got banned to start posting here and using it as a safe repository for their art would be awesome.

What actually is the main goal of the forum? I only joined because I saw Halo posting about it on the Pleroma. Is the main purpose just for it to be something adjacent to PULL, Kiwi/lolcow etc?

I mean, it's my twitter, can you actually expect anything but that? I guess I should try to market it in a more broad way.

There's no actual main goal, It's a forum for open discussion about anything without fearing the censorship or cancel culture of social media, additionally I use it as my base of operations for my weeb culture war, but it's not that.

Like the other posters on it, I'd love it if this forum was a place for lively discussion.
As for the name, I just came up with Loli Liberty Land, it sounds uninspired but I'm sure others will come up with better names.

I'll share it on my Minds account when you say it's okay to share it, so maybe other type of people will come in ✨

You can already do that, I'm only waiting to share on twitter because I want to have the "log in with twitter" thing, but I have to wait until twitter approves the developer account to get it to work.

This. I am happy to see the general environment going on here and would hate to see it become filled with brigading autists.

Everyone hates my loli crusade :uni-scare:

Fine, I will try to market is as some sort of anime community with free speech.
I dunno man, all these free-speech platforms burn in fire and get swallowed in dramas just like superman with skulls in MoS. This niche community is really great bro, let it stay this way

I would go on a crusade (loli or otherwise) but if it only involved actually doing something to put some sense into the japanese artists and creators. I mainly used the discord for reporting retards on twitter that harass artists (doesnt really matter as the the artists themselves either cave before the antis get banned or a thousand more pop up to take their place). Or I would mostly seethe regarding censorship.

Nope, don't do that. Come out and call it what it is. A cunnyden.

:cunny: is the ultimate form of free speech. As I have said and RagingGoldenEagle has once said. There should be a test on the Internet where if someone complains about loli porn, no matter if a site has it or not, they should be banned from the Internet.

I support your loli crusade. I mean it saves me the headache of going into twitter. I think a balanced approach is the correct way some "nice" discussion and some drama.

Yeah, pretty much. I'd prefer for this forum to be den for cunny-enthusiasts and fans like us.
offtop: I always wonder if Dankula had a free-speech platform would he allow lolis on his site tho:zt-think:

he said that he personally doesn't like them but still thinks they should be protected under freespeech
Unfortunately, he also lives in Scotland and has been targeted by his government in the past, so he likely can't play host or pay somebody to pay host to a website that allowed such content without risking his actual life. My mans had to endure a lot over a fucking pug raising its paw.

Also, it's not a 'loli crusade' it's a 'weeb jihad.' Get it right.
