OVERTEXT and Textboard Culture Discussion Board

This board is mainly meant for discussion about THE OVERTEXT (http://xiongnu.org/overtext), but it is also an ad-hoc board for discussion of so-called "Textboard Culture" and both the communities and textboard superstructure, both Eastern and Western, such as they are.

Questions to the curator of THE OVERTEXT, as well as any suggestions, bug reports, dead board notifications, death threats, et cetera go here.
Please try not to shit the place up too much.

almost done with multich

Overtext, are you still alive?

Launch URL will be //0chan.vip . Still need to finish the tagging engine.

  • Added Vampiros.ml.
  • Added 0chan.vip, part of the multich platform. The concept of a federated, decentralized textboard with a tagging system that truncates the multiplicity of boards makes categorization of this site difficult in our more traditional paradigms, yet it's sufficiently close to "textboard culture" (or whatever "textboard culture" may mean at this point) to warrant inclusion in the OVERTEXT. If and when multich takes off, adding every known node of the federated multich network to the OVERTEXT would be things cumbersome and redundant, not to mention that it would also defeat multich's purpose. So, for the time being, and considering it's a "single link" (which, for classic textboard sites, is synonymous with "single board"), 0chan.vip is the OVERTEXT's de facto entry point for the multich network until the technology continues to develop. After that, who knows...
  • Happy new year!

  • Laziest Spring cleaning you'll ever see. Several boards have been marked as defunct.
  • Fixed Bienvenido a Internet's links after their triumphal return, remaining as the prime latinamerican textboard community.
  • goatfinger.gf's links removed permanently due to their links now pointing to third party spam malware. Rest in peace.
  • I am now available via e-mail if so needed. Who knows, I might even pay more attention to it than here. Check the Index for mroe info.

You need to update 4-ch's board list. They recently removed some boards.

20 Name: OVERTEXT!!c3/PBg6X : 2021-03-29 19:01 ID:5hyn9/NU [Del]

  • Added Ayashii.net, an Ayashii World clone, and Gurochan's /dis/, both part of (or affiliated to?) the kolyma.org network.
  • 4-ch has pruned some of its boards recently and its section has been modified as such.

Gurochan's /dis/ is, as you can imagine, part of the larger Gurochan website which, in turn, seems nucleated with two other Guro-adjacent sites. If you don't know what Guro is, then either you're too young to have stumbled into this place or I'm too old to maintain it...

  • arcturus.su's Mahjong board is back, but posting capabilities remain broken.
  • Added ganbatte.vip.
  • Added kolyma.org's /news/.

Ok this was a mistake. I took the site offline. Admin/mods can delete this thread. Thank you and goodbye.

@admin: Please also delete my Decemberchan and Text Paradise shills from the Ayashii Channel BBS. Thanks.

What's up folks,
I've compiled a list of textboard sites in a .json format.
Am I missing any?

lainchan (lainchan.org), desuchan (desuchan.net), samachan (samachan.org) are the ones that I know. to be honest you should write a crawler to make an automatic list instead of doing it manually because there are far too many image/textboards

4 Name: iblist : 2021-01-26 14:02 ID:0Jtzcp5h [Del]

Updated it.

Admin-kun! Add 0chan.vip to your list! (1)

1 Name: Anonymous : 2020-12-19 18:10 ID:yWXruwuR [Del]

0chan.vip is the flagship instance of Multichan, a decentralized, tag-based textboard. Another server in the multichan network is http://bbs.4x13.net ; threads made on 0chan and posted to 4x13 and vice versa; comments to 0chan's threads made on 4x13 are copied back to 0chan.

Please use this thread to announce the appearance of a new textboard in the digital sea, or its disappearance from it. It can be a board you found or one you made yourself - yes, this means you can also use this thread to advertise your textboard.

I'll try to do my best in passing by often so as to update the Overtext catalog accordingly.

CBVla seems to have lost its domain, and Goatfinger is dead again.

Samachan has died. Its community has migrated to Sushichan.

Thank you for letting me know. I'll add it right away.

And it died horribly 'cause they used RAID0 and kept all their backups on the same drives as the actual server for the site and did all their development on the server with no external copies of the software and it all crashed and burned LOL

at least they fixed it quickly, only took a day or two
