>>446502 There's actually a few! >>446503 >1998 The Japanese version of Sonic Adventure was released December 23, 1998. >>446505 Finally some macro for you heterofags! >>446509 Looks like Brosnan got to Tails >>446513 >That is one lucky house. It seriously looks like the house is enjoying it >One of these days I should watch that movie again. It's pretty good, it's even got my waifu Joanna Lumley in it! >>446517 Bigger is better? I've got no idea >>446522 lmao >>446531 You'd think planet-sized would be too big, even for macrofags >>446532 >Goddamn I wanna jiggle Tails' belly. Konductor no! >>446533 Damn! >>446541 Ha! >>446545 Those tits are literally bigger than the Acorn Kingdom >>446554 Shame, I kinda wanted to see where the story would go
https://desuarchive.org/co/thread/133932070/#133947857 >I had no idea you liked Gadget, he’s such a cutie! Could've sworn I told you that already? If I didn't, now you know, bud. He's really a cutie with capital C. It's just that he strikes just perfectly on the impression of an awkward shy sweet nerd, which is the kind of twinks I like myself to pair along large blokes. He's always my go-to pairing mate for Rotor, and the more I ponder of them, the more I find they might really fit with each other like a glove.
>You know what they say, it’s better where it’s wetter! Clever! And yes, that single one panel really evoked a lot, particularly signaling Rotor as a dom top talking cocky to a dom top. Makes me wish even more the comic wouldn't have been cancelled. If I may, how would you write around their dynamic, based or not the little we have seen?
>Another convert! I enjoyed them always actually, but nonetheless you could say that, hehe! Out of curiosity, on another note, did you always liked Tundra too? Nonetheless, I missed you too, man. Having another Sonic fanatic bud talking about sweet gay ships is something of huge appreciation. Rotor loves you!
>>446481 (hopefully this imageboard supports cross-thread replying) If they have been deleting your posts too and others' , in spite none had been me, that's grounds to deduce as safe they aren't targeting on me in specific, but anybody and looking for the incredulous excuses to hide their utter contempt for us and the Unofficial Ride, I think. I took a vacation off these threads myself willingly in hopes it would lessen the rate of mass dictatorship banishment, though that didn't seem to do one tiny difference. I never could imagine I would somehow traumatize a certain janny in /co/ Sonic threads to the incredible effect over simply enjoying to post a mere mascot cartoon walrus character, and yet here we are. Their fault if they are that emotionally immature.
Sorry to hear that, Konductor. Great to see you doing well and fine!
>>446593 We keep missing each other! The jannys must be getting faster at deleting your posts >It's just that he strikes just perfectly on the impression of an awkward shy sweet nerd, which is the kind of twinks I like myself to pair along large blokes That's why I like him too, he's awkward, yet energetic and determined! >If I may, how would you write around their dynamic, based or not the little we have seen? Yeah, we were robbed of some great potential interactions, also wanted to see more of Spike the Porcupine. I'd write them very casually and comfortably. No sexuality hangups, just two guys who hit it off as friends/allies and over the course of a few missions/interactions get progressively more flirty and start dating. They both strike me as guys with a clear idea of what they want out of a relationship and zero tolerance for drama. They're both pretty cocky (lol) so I see them being verse in the bedroom, and mostly centered on lewd wrestling. >Tundra I think he's great, since he's like a cross between Gendo from NGE and that digimon with the tusks. I like him more as a member of the Archie shitty dads club and as someone for Rotor to overcome than as someone I actually find attractive. I missed you too! It's not often enough I get to talk to someone who likes Sonic boys too
>>446595 Oh, and in case anyone wants the video version of the ending >>446594 Yeah, they've even deleted images featuring Rotor that were part of comics posted by the conductor. Between Rotor and Sally, they're mega ass-blasted. I think they're genuinely jealous of how popular The Ride threads are, and how long they've been going on for >>446598 >sweet tentation lmao >>446601 Since I've been re-reading all the old threads, I'm convinced the anon who kept complaining about these threads (since his shitty ones kept getting deleted) has ascended to janny status. While we got stuff deleted before, it was mostly one of the mods not being happy with Sally (you'd think they'd read the rules and see that it's only lewd anthro stuff that's banned outside of trash). That, and the bullshit really ramped up after the janny positions were advertised. Also think it's the same guy trying to get the threads deleted. It's almost always lewd Tails stuff that gets posted, mostly with Rouge.
>got banned from all boards because of "replying to off-topic threads" >doesn't state what post or what thread caused it, just insta-ban I'm fully convinced that all 4chan mods are retarded animals that need to be killed for the good of the site.
>>446668 >every board is off-topic threads now >mods have an excuse to ban anyone who engages in actual discussion nowadays free of charge >don't ban the actual rule-violators or spammers Why are they like this.
>>446667 >replying to off-topic threads I didn't even know that was possible. I just thought those threads got nuked and the only person that got in trouble was OP. Now I know. But it does sound like someone had it out for you and bullshitted a reason.
>>446670 I didn't know it was possible either - the only experience I've ever had with something remotely close to that was as you said; them nuking a thread and then OP getting hit with a ban. That you can get banned entirely at random for replying to the "wrong thread" is utterly insane.
Thankfully, it's only a one day ban but it sets a truly horrific precedent for the entire site.
>>446667 They'll get you for anything, that's why I've been behaving myself and rarely posting non-comic images >>446669 They say absolute power corrupts absolutely, but I don't think that's true. It's small amounts of power given to people who otherwise have no agency. The retired couple on the HOA board, the low-level wageslave at the DMV, and of course the NEET 4chan janny or mod. None of these people have any power or respect in their own lives so they rule their little fiefdoms like they're Emperor Nero
Now that we finally have inline image expansion working, I thought I'd mention the website here too. It was a lot of effort getting this to work since I'm not a web developer, but I'm really pleased with how it turned out. Keep in mind we only have images for January up to the 28th on there. Getting the css to work was a hassle too but I think it matches the main site nicely now. There's still more tweaking to do, but it's finally possible to read the comics on the website!
Not sure what I'll work on next. There's adding an expand all threads button, post previewing when you hover over a post link, indicating which posts were deleted, adding the over 300 smaller comics, and finishing off the awards page. So much to do! I wouldn't mind some with with the website but I get the impression cataloguing fancomics isn't that interesting to most people. I do appreciate how much the anons seem to be enjoying the website, it really is nice to see. That said, I think I'm making a lot of progress for a one-thirstposter operation!
We're over 20,000 visitors and 140,000 pageviews now, I was initially expecting maybe 10 or 20 visitors a day. I never thought it would get this popular, but I also never imagined I'd end up being the Internet's Sonic fancomic archivist. Still, someone has to do it!
If anyone wants to submit banners for the website, the dimensions are 1200x480, with only the top half visible on desktop (i.e., 1200x240). Lower resolutions are fine, just keep in mind the aspect ratio 5:2 for the full image and 5:1 for the top half.
Reread some classic Ride comics on the improved threads page: https://the-ride.neocities.org/threads
>>446730 Oh my! Also, Silver's looking pretty cute in that poncho.
>>446736 Thanks! Yeah, end of year's when everything mounts up for me too. Cool, looking forward to it! >I wish I was pulling your numbers! There's a reason I stickied your comic at the top of the page, gotta funnel those readers in! I really am surprised/horrified at the numbers, but it is good to know there's so many people interested in these fancomics.
>>446861 >One of these days that mod is going to get enough complaints to get demoted. This was deleted too. But I can't believe a mod would because... what's wrong with it? It can't just be the forbidden one merely existing in a corner, right?
>>446873 It's obvious that whoever is doing it doesn't give a fuck. They're just using whatever reason they can to delete stuff. It's an obvious gross misuse of power and the only way to stop them is to keep reporting and hopefully get someone over them to take action. I don't know how likely that is but it's better than nothing and constantly being at the mercy of them.
>>446875 It really is pathetic, imagine getting your dick in a twist over a walrus from a cartoon that finished 30 years ago. I've decided to write them another message. If it keeps happening, they're getting one for every Rotor that's deleted!
Tales of the Knights of King Maximillian #3 https://boards.4channel.org/co/thread/134531665 https://desuarchive.org/co/thread/134531665 Going to post the desu link as well because the original threads die in like a week anyway.
>>446938 Highly recommend https://www.4chan-x.net/ for a heap of quality of life improvements to 4chan. It'll also redirect expired 4chan links to desuarchive. I also use https://github.com/g-gundam/4chan-ghostpostmixer to read deleted posts. I'd miss half of what Rotorbro says otherwise!
>>446956 >check /co/ catalogue for rule violating threads >find 4 >of which 1 where the OP is the offender >and it and another have been up for 2+ days I didn't exhaustively search, I just checked OPs (one was titled Funbag Friday) and know that waifu threads are going to violate the rules within 20 responses. I posted links to those threads in the main thread so you can see what I mean on desu if I, somehow, get deleted for badmouthing the moderation, because I've been banned for doing so before on other boards. I doubt anyone doing it for free will be actively hunting and that even child porn can be unnoticed on red boards if (presumably) no-one hits the report button, but I do roll my eyes at the furry-adjacent persecution when soft but very unsafe for work porn has been up for days.
I'm not even someone who wants adult content on blue boards. I'd much rather it if /aco/ was actually used (it's a cesspit of reposts and shite taste for the most part, you can't discover anything "new" or "one of the greats you never knew existed" through it, then again literal children are the lifeblood of 4chan so what am I expecting I don't know), who even makes an edit thread to not find material to jack off to? I guess at the very least I can feel a high when I post something "risqué" in our threads that I drew, because admitting a character, with implied fur, has a female body, you're either going to get a kind mod who merely deletes it or a nasty one that outright bans you.
>>446952 No worries, you'll certainly need it now that the jannies are going on another rampage. I know what you mean, my workload's left me even more scatterbrained than usual. Hopefully things will clear up in the new year. Mentioned it in the other thread, but that's the Sonic and Friends comic up on the mega now. Really gald I took the time out to cleanup the jpeg compression, it looks so much better now >>446957 It's petty decisions like that that convinced me to keep the deleted posts in the website archives but highlight them in red. I don't think most users realize what gets deleted so it's a good way to show just how absurd things get. It's likely just one janny/mod that's got his dick in a twist about Sonic that's been camping the threads for years now. Interestingly, they never do anything about IDWkun, despite him shitting up almost every Sonic thread. Heaven forbid someone post a cartoon walrus though, that's going too far and must be purged!
>anon asking what was removed and responses to anon were all deleted Let's see... 1 thread I mentioned is now archived, the real person breast grab I explicitly highlighted is still there, the OP I said was just a basically naked cartoon woman is still there, the raven thread (with vore) is still there and the edit thread is still there... I don't expect anything to be done or my comment to be read because it was a response to someone asking about a deleted thing BUT OH BOY my eyes are rolling out of my head. >>446958 >but highlight them in red. I really do appreciate this on archives. It adds context to running discussions on 4chan when anons point it out indirectly and it helps to remind you who's really in control of a subreddit. Good on you. >they never do anything about IDWkun We've had some protection from spamming derailers before but IDWkun isn't like them, mostly thriving off (You)s and unless they're using one of their 3 Sally/Tangle images, it's just anons crying wolf to me. Even I've been called IDWkun for having a basic bitch opinion that I only sometimes write out in a troll/bait way because the Sonic fandom is genuinely autistic with genuinely bad taste with genuinely no concept of acknowledging or perhaps seeing flaws and /co/ doesn't filter out those people. I'd say no offence intended to anons who think the Sonic IP is top tier but if I've just slapped you I can't say no offence, so, I'm sorry for hurting your feelings.
>>446958 >Interestingly, they never do anything about IDWkun There's been stuff done in the past about him which is why he resorted to spamming when the IDW Ride threads were in autosage. The janitor may hate Sonic but they'll still get rid of the shitposting. Or at least someone does. I noticed a lot of those extremely large off topic posts about sexuality in real life were removed.
What's up /co/cksluts, after 10 thousand years I'm finally going to storytime a lewd ~after dark~ comic! It's The Lion and the Griffin, by the Duke of Anjou artist. While not that explicit, it is very very gay! Hopefully this link works: >>418513
>>446959 Yeah, I used to report that stuff when I saw it, but I rarely bother now. I wouldn't even mind the arbitrary decisions on what they delete if they'd just be a bit more transparent about it. You almost never see the mods post, and there's no direct way to interact with them. It just fosters distrust >Good on you. Thanks! >IDWkun Yeah, I think a lot of anons are quick to jump at shadows, myself included sometimes. >spoiler How dare you! Seriously though, we as fans really should have a thicker skin considering how long the franchise has been a laughingstock. Sonic will always be top tier to me, but that doesn't stop many of the games being objectively mediocre at best. There's always something I can have fun with in them, but I do wish we could get a game with the polish of a Nintendo title. I honestly don't mind people pointing out its flaws, although I do take exception to reviewers/internet personalities shitting on the franchise for a quick buck. >>446960 I'm just surprised he hasn't been permabanned yet. He switches ips almost every post but it's always the same keywords. I hate to say it, but I actually feel sorry for him now. Whether he's trying to troll or not, he's spent Barneyfag-levels of effort shitting on a dead comic that's not healthy >I noticed a lot of those extremely large off topic posts about sexuality in real life were removed. I was seriously surprised by how quickly it snowballed, even the Sonic with top scars comics didn't attract as much of a shitstorm. I was actually glad it got dealt with.
Ho ho ho my /co/ckslut hoes, it's time for the Christmas edition of ~after dark~! I know some of you have been very naughty this year so let me reach deep into my sack and pull out some suitably appropriate tales. Let's see if I've finally worked out cross-board posting after the konductor's helpful instructions: >>>/coq/418613 for the naughty homofags >>>/pco/460441 for the nice heterofags
>>447025 >>447027 There's a reason why I try not to break any rules. Because these deletions are being reported and it helps if someone looks at our threads and sees nothing is wrong and actually does something. Until then be on your best behavior and report any moderation abuse.
https://desuarchive.org/co/thread/134700718/#134712357 Hey Rotor-bro, good to see you posting again! Same about our twitchy hot-pocket overlords. If only they'd see the light and recognize twink and baraposting as the purest form of art! Yeah, I thought KrazyELF was a dude at first too. The amount of little details she gets right completely threw me off, she knows too many of our lewd secrets! I had no idea there were lady bara artists too. Not entirely my thing, but it's really well done! I'll have to look for the Werehog! >Looks like we and our belonging fandoms aren't so different, eh? I like to think so! I've gotta say the comfy comradely of bara art is just the best. Merry Christmas to you too, I hope you get all the naughty things you want too! Love ya!
>>447023 To be fair, that image is mega-hot. I had to tone down my response to that one a lot! >>447028 Same, there's dozens of images I used to post but I'm trying to be on my best behavior
>>447045 It has Sally with tits, so yes it's not safe. But other than that, it's not particularly edgy. >>447047 >Everything's there, lined up in a neat, fleshy row Smashing the dreams of anons who want to fist androids. Also this goes into far too much detail and I respect the artist's hustle. I could actually read a few sentences here and there instead of cringing at first sight.
>>447053 >Pixar Cars' Haven't seen that one but it does remind me of a greyish goop that was a virus for giving vehicles sapience. And each image of that one was worse than the last. >>447054 Images weren't loading for me but other websites were fine.
>>447044 Allow me to give my theory. The janitor that hates our threads on 4chan will use any excuse to delete posts. Rotor-anon is apparently a ban evader so anything with Rotor gets deleted, even if it's obviously not that anon. Then there's a shitposter posting porn of Tails and Rouge. Naturally those get deleted but now images with Tails and Rouge get deleted, even if they're not porn. Any chance to get a post deleted will get taken but the mod activity only ramps up when there's shitposting. I don't know how likely it is but I am starting to believe that a shitposter got mod status and is doing both because they hate Sonic. I also believe they got in trouble for mass deleting Sonic threads when trailers for Sonic 2 were coming out.
Since linking here's forbidden by the jannies, I was going to add a direct link in the header of the website as 'other board' since that's how most people refer to it. Happy for suggestions >>447039 It's updating again! >>447044 It's a 50/50 with Rouge. >>447045 I like muscular Sonic, but Shoggothnic's the only eldritch horror for me >>447047 Disturbingly detailed, but a commendable effort! >>447054 It's a little slow at times and sometimes takes a few goes to load images. I think most anons are used to 4chan's beefy servers (although it actually has far more downtime than plus).
>>447055 >>447057 There's something misconfigured on the server and I can't for the life of me find out what. Any call to httpd gets a massive amount of lag, even from ssh. Everything else seems to connect instantly.
>>447056 I have to agree. I was speculating here >>446603 that the shitposter had ascended to janny status, but maybe he's a mod now. Either way, Sonic lives rent-free in his head (also, he does it for free, hew hew). I know the little shitstain will take any excuse to nuke our threads so I rarely post images and don't post any ~after dark~ over there unless it's completely sfw. That said, he's definitely getting in trouble for the mass deletions. Sonic's extremely popular and the bean counters know how much traffic each thread gets, so hopefully we're too big to kill now. I get 500-2000 daily visitors on the website so there must be even more readers in our threads. >>447058 I wish I could offer some advice, but web stuff is way out of my area of expertise. I know my webdev guy uses nginx instead of httpd, but I don't remember his reasoning. Thanks for looking into it though, it really is a comfy site! >>447059 lmao >>447060 Janny is Amy confirmed
>>447061 I'm just hoping that they get in trouble again for these deletions. I also remember how Rotor-anon came by at the end of one thread and then the start of the next thread a shitposter spammed shit about him and those posts were immediately deleted.
As for that other semi-Sonic comic. I'm probably going to announce it in the other thread, make a new thread here, and just dump it all at some random time. And then any fools interested can read it.
>>447062 I might have to start sending in more feedback if it continues. FYI, here's the link I use: https://www.4channel.org/feedback >As for that other semi-Sonic comic. Probably for the best, there's a lot of ponies you'd have to censor >>447063 How frustrating. Best of luck with it!
So I've just been warned for posting "off topic" content in the other thread. I won't be directly linking the website anymore and will instead take that anon's suggestion and add an updates page. I assume linking it in the op is still fine, but who knows. Here's the offending post:
Website shilling time! I've added 14 new comics. Almost up to date with the main comics again! I've also got 12k/32k fanfics archived. Should only be a few more days until we have them all! Today's recommendations: Because it's cool to see my favorite lewd artist do something sfw: https://the-ride.neocities.org/comics/2022-12-03-sonic-unity/ For the archive-bro that pulled this lost comic out of the aether: https://the-ride.neocities.org/comics/2022-12-14-sonic-afterstory/ And because Grifone is the best character and should be in every comic: https://the-ride.neocities.org/comics/2022-12-12-tales-of-the-knights-of-king-maximillian/
>>447065 It's Super Legend Heroes from MSlash67-Production. It's in the mega if you want to read it aHR0cHM6Ly9tZWdhLm56L2ZvbGRlci9NbVlnaERCWiM4MDJrNEMzTFNGTU5iR2pJWDlXVVJB
>>447069 It won't last Shippers and OC inserts are natural enemies Like Companies and Shippers Or Artists and Shippers Or Twitter and Shippers Or Shippers and other Shippers Damn Shippers, they ruined Shipping
>>447071 At this point I'm 100% sure at the very least the mod hates our threads and will use any flimsy excuse to delete posts. 90% sure they hate Sonic in general or at least on /co/. 80% sure they tried to get rid of all Sonic threads on /co/ but got in trouble for it. 70% sure that they were previously a shitposter in our threads. 60% sure they still shitpost in our threads. 50% sure they are posting stuff with one IP and deleting it with their regular IP and using that trend to delete any non-offending images that is in line with it. And 100% reason to remember the name. I don't want to be a schizo with a tinfoil hat but paying attention to the behavior in the threads is making some theories seem true.
>>447070 No worries! I would've replied over there but didn't want to get banned >>447074 I have to agree, they're an ascended shitposter that can't handle the blue hedgehog. It's an unfortunate consequence of not paying for moderation, the only people willing to do it have too much free time on their hands but crave any sort of power. It looks like they were working extra hard today to ruin all Sonic discussion, I can see why you didn't link in the previous thread. Glad our threads continue to be comfy
>>447087 I thought it was my internet. Actually it's both... It's making it impossible to discuss the latest IDW issue! I feel bad for fans of the OCs. And fans of the Sega cast. Art's good though, if you're not reading the totally legal pages.
I need to do more stuff on this site. I have a sizable number of content that I can't post over on 4chan. >>447087 >>447088 Usually it happens late at night and early morning. In the middle of the day is different. >>447089 And I haven't even read it yet.
>>447089 At this point I don't know whats going on with IDW Is it the mandates? Is it the writing? Because scrapnik is amazing, mainline is just...a massive waste of time. I just don't get it, these are the same writers from Archie right? why is IDW so inferior then? Not to mention the next issue is OC shit. Regardless I'm tired of IDW I'm just not going to bother with it anymore, will read the rest of scrapnik of course.
>>447090 >And I haven't even read it yet. Wait until there are a few more issues beyond it or something. It's okay. I think I remember how Farnsworth would react: With my last breath I curse nothing happening! >>447091 >I just don't get it I don't either. I think they dropped a couple of plot threads too, probably by accident.
>>447030 That's the thing: they might as much be fragile sissies with steam of jealously stemming from their chinless mouths, prone to break their fragile self-esteem over us enjoying the finest masculinity and/or awkward nerd shy boys. Explain as much their on-going tyranny! But really now, don't worry about me. Just know I'm always lurking there and enjoying your presence there especially, thirsty bud. I mean it from heart, my man. I don't post much myself, out of procrastination, really. I made a resolution this year, that I will respond more often to buddies like you, the thread there and others, if it's any consolation.
>I'll have to look for the Werehog! Service yourself. I figured her art wouldn't be much up your cup of tea, no sweat, but I thought to mention it since you love Werehog. https://e621.net/posts?tags=hyaku_%28artist%29+werehog+
All this talk now makes me kind of wish I would commission this talented Krazy dudette on making a Rotor or two, though I never in my life ever paid an artist for art online before. Is it simple, or?
>I like to think so! Atta, my man! And (late) Merry Christmas!
>>446602 Late reply, but yes, with how hetero-dominated the fandom is, our senses get really cloudy to meet others in the same threshold. Discounting you, I only got one other friend to speak about good and comfy Sonic hunks generally. It's a huge pleasure to meet you! I mean it, really.
So you're liking baras thanks to me? That's what I call a good real Sonic fan. Oh, and hope you're having a lovely start for the new year, my bro.
>>447056 I had already spoke I do dodge bans, yeah. It would be unwise not to. It's hard to take the tyrannical moderation as serious, so one will forsake it all eventually and become indifferent to whatever unreasonable bans they enforce. It's a little bummer I and others, you included, are censored restlessly, but there's more to life than caring whatever does a singular petty "higher-up" grudge on over me, who knows why. You can tell I'm not supposed to be forbid at all, because my posts there aren't wiped off always. That's enough to hint potential power abuse.
> I don't know how likely it is but I am starting to believe that a shitposter got mod status and is doing both because they hate Sonic. I also believe they got in trouble for mass deleting Sonic threads when trailers for Sonic 2 were coming out. As they say, "bullshit, but I believe it". In any case, already enjoy this place here, as for once, I'm not being bap'd for liking to post my fave. character.
>>447062 Don't look at me. I'm just as much in the dark as you are. That was *the* "Archieschizo"... ? Regardless, I always mind my own business and let it wrap up itself. Often, this life hack works wonders.
>>447087 Massive raid apparently >>447091 The one-offs like Scrapnik Island consistently have better plot and writing. Maybe because they only get a few issues to tell a story and don't need to focus on the (always boring and too long) main plot. The trade paperback format's been a real plot de-compressor ever since reboot Archie. Just give us a satisfying amount of story in each issue! This whole "stay tuned for the next issue because we'll resolve some plot that should've happened this issue" really rubs me the wrong way. >>447095 Yeah, they're pretty thin-skinned considering they moderate for a site with a reputation like 4chan. No worries, post as much as you feel comfortable with. I'm actually a lot more shy and prone to procrastination IRL so I totally unerstand >Werehog Thanks, he's the ultimate in fluffy Sonic characters! >All this talk now makes me kind of wish I would commission this talented Krazy dudette on making a Rotor or two, though I never in my life ever paid an artist for art online before. Is it simple, or? KrazyELF's Russian, so you have to use some other site to pay her, but it's apprantly pretty straightforward and she's happy to walk people through the process. Also, her English has gotten really good now so that should make things easier. I've not commissioned anything myself yet (I can never think of anything), but I really should And a Happy New Year to you Rotor-bro! >>447096 Yeah, for a fanbase this close to the furry fandom it's surprisingly hetero-dominated and most of the homo stuff is dominated by fujos. It's a rare treat to talk to a fellow dude-appreciator! Yeah, I definitely blame you for corrupting me! I've been getting into the lighter bara, where the guys are buff but not mega muscular. Mostly it's the comfy interactions that are friendship first, lewdness second that I've really been enjoying. >As they say, "bullshit, but I believe it". In any case, already enjoy this place here, as for once, I'm not being bap'd for liking to post my fave. character. Yeah, it's way more comfy over here. I'm having to be increasingly careful over there since I got a warning for talking about the website (a website that's dedicated to comics, on a board about comics no less!). It's frustrating, but I'm going to keep posting regardless. >Archieschizo Yeah, people also call him IDWkun. He's the main one that shits up the threads, apparently because some SatAM fans made fun of him on a forum years ago. Many anons think he also posts as Pixy on Kiwifarms, but I never bothered looking into it. Hopefully he'll grow out of it or find another fandom to annoy (he also shits up the death battles threads, although I've never read them).
Looks like our pet jammy got upset and nuked a bunch of posts in the last thread. Even the konductor saying he'll be late is "off topic" now. Reposting my website and STCO update:
Decided to update the website early, check the update page for details. Technically, we just passed 99k views but the update is going out early. Oh, and I've got all the main STCO comics and about half the specials. The main ones I automated but the specials are unfortunately a manual process. Frustratingly, STPM/xmas2007 is a dead link so I'll have to rummage through the internet archive. The good news is Swirlything (my favorite non-lewd artist) has done a lot of work for this comic, you're all in for a treat!
And since I won't get in trouble for a direct link here: https://the-ride.neocities.org/updates/
>>447100 You have to dox yourself to become a 4chan janny so we know this is a grown man butt-blasted about a cartoon hedgehog. It's actually kinda sad. Hopefully the higher-ups will do something about his overreach, although I have my doubts. It did get me to update the faq on the website with instructions on how to restore deleted posts, so he's not entirely useless! https://the-ride.neocities.org/updates/2222-02-22/
>>447102 They learned their lesson after a bunch of people applied just to shit things up. You've got to email them a copy of your id so they know who you are. I think a photo of you holding your id too but it's been years since I read it. It makes sense from 4chan's perspective, but you have to wonder who would willingly do that
>>447099 >Even the konductor saying he'll be late is "off topic" now. Interesting. At least I didn't get a warning or anything. Things are getting so volatile, it's going to be a matter of time until someone else looks into it. Just hoping it doesn't make things worse for us.
>>447105 Hopefully they'll look into it, I imagine they keep a record of every post a janny deletes. I'm not too worried, these threads are within scope of the board, do decent numbers, and rarely devolve into shit flinging. Still, I'm going to be more careful with what I post. I'll save my archiving updates for here and won't be directly linking to the website. I probably won't reply to slightly off-topic posts anymore since they're using that as an excuse too. Hopefully things will calm down soon
That's all of STCO archived! I've included the pinups, thumbnails, and next issue pages for completeness but no need to use them. I've also put the specials in folders to preserve publication order. Some of the pages were over 2mb so I've shrunk them (but preserved the originals for those interested). There were also a few comics in the specials that don't show on the website but were implied by the filenames. I've included them too although they may have been revised for later issues. I also merged the "new to stc" images into chunks of 5, but kept the originals.
STPM 2007 is missing from the main site, but looking through the waybackmachine (https://web.archive.org/web/20080305003211/http://www.stconline.co.uk/back/XMAS2007/XMAS2007/controlzone.html) I was able to guess the image locations. Interestingly, those images took much longer to load, meaning they're not cached. We're probably the only people to have seen that comic in years!
Looks like there's enough here for at least a week of threads aHR0cHM6Ly9tZWdhLm56L2ZvbGRlci9NbVlnaERCWiM4MDJrNEMzTFNGTU5iR2pJWDlXVVJB
>>447112 Oh yes, that's why I didn't saw it on the other thread after seeing it on DA. It's dangerous to post that there. Good thing I was too busy to post it myself or I might have got myself in trouble.
Bad news about that lewd comic "The Adventures of Femboy Rouge" I was going to storytime. I was trying to find a higher resolution copy and the only official copies are behind a paywall. Personally I only storytime comics that the artists release freely so we'll have to skip that one >>447112 It's a shame they don't draw the guys as curvy. It's frankly discriminatory! >>447114 This Sally's just far too powerful to post over there >>447116 lmao
Were IDW #53 & #54 not storytimed? Paying to access is ludicrously expensive. I mean jesus titty christ is this normal for US prints and digital prints? I know it's not printed on toilet paper but seriously?
>>447123 >Weirdly the trade paperbacks are cheaper than buying the I'm confused, do you mean the collections/volumes? Because they seem to be only barely more expensive... and twice as expensive as something I can grab from a publisher over here. Also I thought image related was fanart and whenever anons posted the Vanilla/Cream part it was from a porn series. Whisper/Tangle on that are faaaar more of an item than you actually get in the stories, it almost makes it comical for how they're depicted there.
>>447124 >Also I thought image related was fanart and whenever anons posted the Vanilla/Cream part it was from a porn series. Whisper/Tangle on that are faaaar more of an item than you actually get in the stories, it almost makes it comical for how they're depicted there. That's just ABT being ABT. Based coomer artist spicing things up.
Updated the website again. I've added more comics and sped up the thread loading: https://the-ride.neocities.org/updates/2023-01-07/ >>447124 Yeah, trade paperbacks are the general term for the collected volumes. It's an odd name now that I think of it. I guess it depends on your region, but for a while there the digital editions were more expensive than the physical ones. >>447126 Adam Based Thomas!
>>447131 I say keep posting. As long as part of your post is about something on topic there's no reason to remove it. So the janitor is being petty and is outright breaking rules. I say report them and even provide that as proof. Sooner or later they'll get in trouble for this.
It turns out it's very quick to add single threads to the website once they archive so I'll be doing that from now on (unless I forget or get busy). One day I'll have the comics backlog cleared and then it'll be clear sailing! >>447137 Yeah, probably not but there's not much else to do. The staff are just way too hands off (assuming they actually exist)
>>447160 Everyone knows Tails is too hot for /co/! Speaking of hot, here's a new piece from the artist that does Eclipse. Spoilering because while not nude, it is steamy. They actually just made a few lewd comics available so looks like we'll be doing another hetero ~after dark~ soon! https://www.deviantart.com/tierafoxglove
>>447179 >>447180 Whatever the case is, if more people are catching on then there's a better chance that another mod/janitor will notice and do something. Call it wishful thinking but now /sthg/ is wising up. And thanks for the screencap, I don't have the patience to go through /sthg/ to find out what's going on.
>>447182 >Whatever the case is, if more people are catching on then there's a better chance that another mod/janitor will notice and do something.
There's a 0% chance either way. 4chan gets such a huge influx of people that the janitors can mistreat anyone as much as they want. As long as the boards aren't full of CP/spam/off-topic threads, they are doing their job well.
>>447179 Well now we know. It's embarrassing enough spending all day shitting up Sonic threads, but having to clean it up for free too? Sad! >>447188 It was deleted because I mentioned updating the website again (which I'll continue to do, stay mad janny!). That and someone posted a busty Vanilla after it, which probably attracted him >>447189 Oh he mad!
Jannie is having a schizo attack he doesn't know what to do now since everyone on /sthg/ found out hes the retard who keep spamming Tangle shit and hes also the one who keep spamming archie fans must die crap.
>>447191 The Archieschizo is immunized against all dangers: one may call him a samefag, schizo ,IDWkun, Pixy, it all runs off him like water off a raincoat. But call him a Janny and you will be astonished at how he recoils, how injured he is, how he suddenly shrinks back:"I've been found out."
>>447205 4chan saves a personal identifier in a cookie that will mark all of your posts, when a ban happens it hits both your IP and that identifier. So yeah, you need to clear your cookie (it's just one field, and it's the only field in the cookie).
Be mindful to only delete the cookie and not the localstorage data, so you can keep all your settings. Also there's a plugin called Cookiebro which allows you to delete cookies (and not localstorage) from given domains whenever you close the browser. Very useful.
>>447201 Users can't mass-delete their own posts, so IDWkun saying he could do that means he's a janitor. It's a bit tricky to untangle, since IDWkun often replies to himself, but these are likely him: >Nobody here gives a shit about sally. Fuck off back to /co/ >No this place was perfectly fine without this newtag sallycuck >And Ive been posting in this general for 4 years to your few months. Nobody has ever acted like you. until late this year. Sally is shit and irrelevant and spamming wont change anything. >And you just said you've posted in this general for a couple of months so you're a damn newfag to this place you shameless samefagger
This anon worked it out: >What the fuck are you talking about? Did you just out yourself as a janny?
There's a distinct saltiness to his style, and a clear lack of irl social interaction since he probably doesn't get out much. He accuses lots of people of samefagging (despite doing it himself) since there can't possibly be more than one person that likes Sally, let alone disagrees with him. Sad!
>>447208 This. I use 4chan-X so I can just nuke my entire cache instead of tracking down the cookie. As for getting a new IP, I'd just say you're having trouble connecting to some sites and rebooting the router should fix it.
>>447119 More bad news, it looks like the lewd comics by the Eclipse artist are subscription only. I guess gallery-dl can download them anyway, but I won't be posting them until the artist makes them freely available. They're seriously top tier though, highly recommend checking them out >>447212 I'm just gonna assume this is exactly what happens in the horse show. At least Spike's eyes are inside his head again!
I mentioned in the latest update to the website that I'd found the missing page from My Friends Next Door. Is it worth re-storytiming the whole thing or should I just do the first chapter and link to the archive?
>>447222 You know, I think I have been in several argument with him, on unrelated topic, in other threads. Will go full bad faith, keep ignoring arguments and once the thread reach bump limit, will stop replying until the thread is about to prune to make one last round of his bad faith argument, so he can feel like he has the last word, like a coward.
>>447224 I've done the same. It's only now that I'm realizing just how many of the arguments I've had have been with him. I remember an anon mentioned that he was also shitting up death battle threads so he's clearly spending an unhealthy amount of time on 4chan. That would track since he's almost certainly a janny now
>>447225 Essentially there is no IDWkun person that hates Sally. It's just one of the roles some guy with lots of sockpuppets made up. Some post gore and Archie/Sally hate spam, some post pro-Archie stuff for him to meltdown over, and some muddy the waters accusing other posters of being him. The guy behind IDWkun may be neutral to or even like Sally. Another anon (https://arch.b4k.co/vg/thread/414557942/#414563647) suspects he's been the anti-Shadow spammer since 2020 and I'm inclined to agree. He's been spamming /sthg/ more than usual lately, but got upset when some anons accused him of being a bot so it's important to him that anons think it's someone with a personal grudge against Sally.
The goal is to get anons up in a frenzy accusing each other of being IDWkun every time there's a slight disagreement. Posted some Sally art? Clearly you're the Sally-schizo. Criticized Sally in any way or posted the wrong Tangle image? Clearly you're IDWkun. No one takes the bait and responds to him? He'll just respond as an outraged anon to shit up the thread. This way, he hopes no comfy discussion can ever take place in Sonic treads. As to why he does it, it's probably the only way he can get people to interact with him. He definitely likes all the attention too.
>>447227 At least Silver's having fun! >>447229 He certainly hates Rotor-bro, which is a shame because he could learn a lot from Rotor-bro's friendly and laid-back posting style. Why anyone would stay up for days at a time spamming nonsense and gore to get attention on an imageboard I'll never know
>>447230 >Why anyone would stay up for days at a time spamming nonsense and gore to get attention on an imageboard I'll never know Attention. Almost always attention. The things people do on the internet for some acknowledgement, good or bad, is insane. It's the same reason why you see people making comments like "first" and "like if you see this in [current year]." The less attention someone gets in real life, the more desperate they are for it online.
And that's the missing pages up in the mega! Posting here too since the janny's been deleting my posts again. It's nice to know I have a fan that reads all my posts so closely for perceived infractions! >>447231 First! Seriously though, it's pretty sad. Dude was spamming gore for over 24 hours on /sthg/, that's just unhealthy
>>447231 >The less attention someone gets in real life, the more desperate they are for it online. Some of us don't fall to the lows of commenting "first". Besides, it doesn't get you nearly as many (You)s as Original Content or beating thirstposter to the punch. >>447235 I still find that Silver adventure's art so admirably bizarre. >"""amateur"""/slapped together style >errors all over the place >a lot of hard angles and broken hands
>it all looks good Must be a lot of work to make it look this "bad".
I really want to learn how to use gallery-dl but the executable doesn't seem to work for me or I'm doing it wrong and the command line program doesn't start up. I think I'll need to download something else or something. This is turning into one of those things where I keep ramming my head into it until I figure it out but many, many hours will pass in the process.
>>447244 Yeah, it's a lot easier on Linux or Mac, especially if you spend a lot of time using the terminal/command line. I'll put together a tutorial for it with a focus on Windows. I've been meaning to write some for the website and that's a good place to start
>>447248 Yeah, there's a reason I say "be sure to check the fancomics for updates!" now. IDWjanny really doesn't like anyone doing anything constructive when it comes to Sonic. I even got a post deleted because I mentioned uploading the comics to the mega. I actually put that update out early so I wouldn't forget.
>>447248 As long as they keep it to just warnings and short bans, you can't appeal it and bring it up with someone else. This is why leaving feedback is all that can be done. It may not do anything but if there's a chance of it happening then I'd do it.
>>447254 >>447255 It's because we have a janny that pays extra special attention to our threads since he's dedicated his (for lack of a better word) life to hating a blue cartoon hedgehog. The hilarious part is the website's still pulling in 500-1000 visitors a day so it's not like he's accomplishing anything. For now, we're still allowed the link in the OP, we just can't reference it. The Conductor had to take the Plus link out though, which is a shame (and why I made it more prominent on the website)
>>447257 No worries, it really is a comfy place to post and it's a shame more websites aren't like this. I actually took a lot of cues from here by trying to make it a straightforward site with a design that focuses on the content
>>447254 >meanwhile on /co/.png I started using the filter * so I don't have to know those exist, instead just what I've whitelisted. And it helps my sanity to not see yet another haha what if Toph had boobs thread, and not seeing Batman telling me to draw. >>447255 Anarchic authoritarianism. >>447257 *uses ur bandwidth*
>>447258 Thank you for those high words of praise, although I'm a bit puzzled as to which part of the site you mean. It's missing a third of the features it should have, and half the features I want it to have (twice that if I count the backend). Basic things like the mobile menu were only added in the last few months; the mobile part of the design still feels unfinished.
glad you think it feels comfy, that's basically one of the design goals.
>I actually took a lot of cues from here by trying to make it a straightforward site with a design that focuses on the content The design is mostly inherited from the previous developer (secret of secret.graphics). I just rounded it up and modernized it, and added a responsive viewpont so on desktop resolutions it looks closer to a traditional imageboard. If you view the site in tablet resolution, it's closer to to the original design. I want to make this selectable at some point.
>>447263 I stopped when our dear friend removed the last one I posted. I assume they would reason that it's porn. They wouldn't be right but it is the artist's obvious fetish. >>447264 That is a shame but it is based off of the reboot design.
>>447260 It's a lot of little things, like posts highlighting when you quote them, but mostly it's that the interface keeps out of the way of the content and that there's no unnecessary columns and banners like you'd see on reddit. Actually, your pulldown menu in the mobile view gave me the idea to add one to my thread archives.
I get what you mean about things feeling unfinished, there always seems to be more things to do when it comes to websites. From a user's perspective this site does feel feature complete at least
>glad you think it feels comfy, that's basically one of the design goals. Everyone memes the small web as an escape from the modern web, but I'd much rather have the comfy web!
Looking at the wayback machine, I can see what you mean. Personally, I think it looks better now, although I did like the narrower maximum text width of the old version.
>>447261 I don't get the appeal either, but it was fun seeing them posted. >>447264 That should be illegal! >>447266 There's something really charming about those 3D images, even if they're almost all weird (but sfw) fetishes. I'll have to post some of the ones I found sometime
>>447267 >mostly it's that the interface keeps out of the way of the content and that there's no unnecessary columns and banners like you'd see on reddit I think this is true for most imageboards. Other social media sites have to rely on collecting user data and making money out of ads, so they have to show a lot of crap to encourage viral growth. You don't have that baggage on an anonymous imageboard.
>your pulldown menu in the mobile view gave me the idea to add one to my thread archives. Not sure I see what you mean. And by the way, your size has a crazy amount of work in it, it's much more dedicated than what I expected. Anything I can do to make it easier for you to crawl threads?
>I get what you mean about things feeling unfinished, there always seems to be more things to do when it comes to websites. From a user's perspective this site does feel feature complete at least That's just the curse of knowing how to make sites. You always get a new idea to implement. There are still things like an options menu, thread watcher, etc which are missing, and that's not counting my own ideas.
>I did like the narrower maximum text width of the old version. It does look more readable (too wide columns make the text hard to follow, I know of that problem), but I had to make it a bit wider to fill the space on tablets. Actually if I increase the font size, it's a lot more readable. I thought I did that, but it must have been reverted at some point.
>>447274 >I think this is true for most imageboards. Now that I think of it, that's probably why I prefer imageboards.
>Not sure I see what you mean. And by the way, your size has a crazy amount of work in it, it's much more dedicated than what I expected. Anything I can do to make it easier for you to crawl threads? I meant the header that drops down in mobile view when you scroll up, but hides when you scroll down. It's a nice way to keep the functionality without clutter. Thanks! It's been a lot of work since I don't have a webdev background. The whole thing's automated with scripts I run locally to generate the comic pages based on a Google spreadsheet so it's not as much work as it seems. Thanks for the offer, but your site's already much easier to crawl than desuarchive. They use so many nested divs just to store a post it's maddening.
>That's just the curse of knowing how to make sites. You always get a new idea to implement. >There are still things like an options menu, thread watcher, etc which are missing, and that's not counting my own ideas. Those sound great! I've never used a thread watcher before, but after a brief play with the 4chanX one, it's pretty useful.
>Actually if I increase the font size, it's a lot more readable. I thought I did that, but it must have been reverted at some point. That would look nice. I've accidentally reverted things a heap, but fortunately the anons let me know when I break something major.
>>447279 I guess we can add Antoine to the list of too hot for /co/. At least he has Sally, Rotor and Tails to keep him company.
https://desuarchive.org/co/thread/135017372/#135028358 So the lawsuit against DeviantArt got me worried about us losing even more comics so I've scraped all of the threads for DA links. I've found 649 unique DA accounts and am archiving them now. I actually archive all the art accounts on the website, but I don't want to miss the ones we haven't covered. I'll be running the non-DA accounts (twitter, tumblr, etc) next. So far I've got over 1TB of Sonic art stored. It's not hoarding though, I can stop anytime I want!
>>447281 >I meant the header that drops down in mobile view when you scroll up, but hides when you scroll down. That's kind of a standard thing on mobile, the browsers also do it. I really only had to copy over code I wrote for elsewhere.
>Thanks for the offer, but your site's already much easier to crawl than desuarchive. They use so many nested divs just to store a post it's maddening. Yeah, it seems the first post is all out of whack. Don't they have an API where you could get a json of the post data? They also have the image in as the first element, which forces the post info to align to the right of the image. That's pretty neat, it makes things more compact.
>I've never used a thread watcher before, but after a brief play with the 4chanX one, it's pretty useful. It's a standard feature in vanilla 4chan, you just have to turn it on under options. I can't add one here yet because it would be dependent on a couple of other missing things, and the backend has been neglected for so long that it breaks on newer PHP versions.
>I've accidentally reverted things a heap, but fortunately the anons let me know when I break something major. I don't get nearly as much feedback as I like. I keep worrying if it's because we have so few users, or if because things are working fine already. The only feature request I got in the past years was the thread updater.
>>447279 Muh You's are all gone. Here's the jpeg from my recycling folder. It has errors I didn't notice before making the webm and would obviously look more on style if the artist did it as they know how to do their fluffy stuff. >>447281 >So far I've got over 1TB of Sonic art stored. It's not hoarding though, I can stop anytime I want! Nicole shouldn't have given you that 50TB drive, it's feeding your habits. >>447282 I've seen Pinkie Pie do more fucked up things to dead bodies by just logging into FA and seeing the Recent Submissions page.
