This is just a simple Knuckles and Rouge romance comic. It’s pretty amusing for various intentional and unintentional reasons. It’s also the only comic from this artist that isn’t focused on feet tickling and licking. Anyway, this is Knouge Comic!
>>451332 It's mostly him samefagging, but there are no doubt actual posters falling for it too. Really, the best way to deal with schizos is to either ignore them or trick them into making enough retarded posts in a vacuum then report them all so the mods are forced to delete them & ban them.
>>451379 Yeah, I was sure I'd be getting a warning for the Violet ones >>451380 Speaking of, they don't seem to be deleting plus links anymore. Let's hope things stay that way >>451382 No worries! I just sorted the images by size and then adjusted the quality slider until each came in under 4mb. Oh, and I'm up to page 6 of lettering that ABT redraw. Man, placing speech bubbles is way harder than it looks!
>>451383 >Man, placing speech bubbles is way harder than it looks! Boy isn't it? My one attempt at it on just one page turned out to be a much more difficult and time consuming exercise than I expected. And half the job was already done to begin with.
>>451381 Well I didn't get a warning, but this was deleted from the last thread >>451384 It's certainly made me realize I'll have to be a lot less wordy, and that I'll have to do the speech bubbles at the thumbnail stage. Or maybe just make everyone mute!
>>451387 I am not saying it would be out of place to talk about the lore it introduce, but it would be best to wait a couple of weeks or more so that all the shitposting get enough time to get digested before engaging.
Pretty sure only a mod can do that so either the janny has the mod on speed dial or it was the work of a mod that's been harassing us. And now they're saying that I'm the faker even though the thread is still archived on desuarchive. https://desuarchive.org/co/thread/139722571
>>451398 This dude is the saltiest schizo/janny I've ever encountered on an imageboard. The fact that he's been at this for years is hilarious as it is sad >>451399 I'm guessing it's a mod. Imagine sucking up to the mods for 2 years as a janny just to level up your do-it-for-free status.
>>451399 Yeah, sorry. I just assumed you were the schizo since it happened so quick and it coincided with him trying to spam the thread. But I'm not even surprised that it's our usual psycho mod/janny combo.
>>451400 Considering the state of /co/ and that we're the ones getting targeted is like an orphanage in Detroit getting closed down. >>451401 I just don't think about it. What happens happens. >>451402 No biggie.
>>451401 At least we'll always have here. Our special friend wouldn't dare post anywhere he doesn't have his janny powers >>451402 It was incredibly fast. I guess he was filling up the thread and waiting for that to happen >>451403 >Considering the state of /co/ and that we're the ones getting targeted is like an orphanage in Detroit getting closed down. Imagine if he put an ounce of the effort he puts into our threads into actually doing his job. 4chan's /co/ might stop looking like a crack house >I just don't think about it. What happens happens. Same. I just remove his posts from the archive and continue having fun in the threads >>451404 And that's why I post crossdressing Knuckles in non-maid outfits!
Thirstposter, just want to make sure that everything in the zips are in order. Not that I doubt you but I'll just be going through the folders as they're arranged. Also curious how the other series are arranged. Basically do I go on autopilot the entire time? Which is perfectly fine for me.
https://twitter.com/eltonpot/status/938155722742870018 Warning show tits and Vagoo, definitely NSFW and not something I could post on the main ride at all. Borderline /pco/, I hope this won't be trouble.
But look what I unearthed from the early days of the internet 2001, when everything was new.
Well it looks like we've got a heap of new anons in the Archie thread. We also got 1,500 visitors to the website and 15,000 page views! >>451413 Whoops, guess who slept through the thread? I guess spending the night lettering pages wasn't the best idea! Yeah, just go by the first numbers. I tried to keep the original numbering from the Thanks Ken Penders blog so we go decimal at some points. Have you got everything downloaded? >>451414 Wow, haven't seen that in a long time!
>>451427 Funny thing is if the mod allowed the links to here to stay in those threads, I could do a better job of getting people to visit her more often and maybe just give up on 4chan altogether. He'd finally get his wish.
I think I like the idea of a side Unofficial Thread at all times, only making a new one when the other is close to archiving. Any new comics should still be linked in the OP so it'll be easier for others to find.
>>451430 Yeah, the extra posters were from /sthg/ but we did get thousands of lurkers if the website's stats are anything to go by >>451431 That'd be nice. Let's hope our special friend doesn't get too shitty about it
>>451433 Yeah, usually they're up for around 30 hours and then are burned out for a few days. It's kinda interesting that we're technically torturing him just by having fun talking about a blue rat. Also, lol at them deleting the Chat Noir image, it wasn't even lewd!
>>451443 I suspect he'll be like this for weeks since we're storytiming Archie. He had a massive meltdown about people making threads for the second Sonic movie when it came out, to the point where he autosaged threads and got in trouble. I used to get off-topic warnings about posting links to the website a while back. Can't remember why he was salty about that though
>>451446 >>451447 There's a reason I've long since stopped mentioning Frontiers or Amy in the threads despite being a massive Sonamyfag and as someone who actually likes Frontiers. It's just not worth dealing with the turbo schizo.
Sad thing is you can't even mention anything even VAGUELY related to Frontiers without him having a meltdown. Sage? Has a massive fucking bitchfit over how she "ruined" Eggman if you do. The End? Spergs like a motherfucker. Kocos/Ancients? A meltdown almost as large as when he shits himself over Sage. Amy/Sonic/the Sonamy stuff? Thread will be completely and utterly derailed without any hope of recovery.
He's basically Ashfag 2.0., but unlike Ashfag who you can ignore and avoid so long as you don't mention one specific character, this faggot makes it so an entire topic of discourse is irradiated.
Also what it up with anything to do with Rotor getting deleted? Just because of that one anon that has him as his husbando? He seems pretty damn harmless but his posts are just instantly deleted by some janny. IMO I think his love of Rotor is kinda cute honestly.
>>451459 Not just that but anyone posts Rotor will get their image deleted. We've even had actual fancomic pages with him deleted. I even had pages deleted when I had my name on. The mod is just using it as an excuse to delete them for some reason. And Rotor-anon says he hasn't done anything to get his stuff deleted on sight. So I think it's only because he thirsts for Rotor and it makes the janny/mod uncomfortable.
>>451446 I try to effortpost about the comic to get things back on topic but some anons will just not shut up about it. It's a shame since there's a lot about Frontiers I want to compare with the comics >>451452 Yeah, I missed the thread but was still able to post in the end >>451459 Some /co/ janny/mod has a hateboner for Rotor-bro. It's ostensibly for "ban evasion" but he's always able to post on the other boards without issue. It's as the Conductor said, either his love for the walrus makes the janny uncomfortable, or Rotor-bro's unintentionally done something to wound their ego. I always respond to Rotor-bro, even though it sometimes gets my posts deleted. I never get any warnings for it though, since I'm not breaking any rules >>451461 That's our salty mod for you, no fun allowed means no fun allowed! One of the reasons I respond to multiple posts at the same time is so I can smuggle slightly off topic content past our special friend. I also try and relate it back to Sonic, and mention 'comics' and 'cartoons.' It doesn't always work though
>>451461 You can appeal? This is a perfect time to go over everything the mod has been doing and posting links to examples of stuff getting unfairly removed. You can point out how the ban is excessive as well. You should definitely go all out but be professional about it.
>>451461 >>451463 Seconding this. If you could also mention these threads got deleted, that'd be great: https://boards.4channel.org/co/thread/139784839 https://boards.4channel.org/co/thread/139784899 >>451464 Two threads did
>>451467 Just got a temporary block for both /co/ AND all boards. He is 100% defending IDWkun/Pixy - hell, the fact he immediately identified what the overall issue was before telling us "lul, you have another thread" speaks volumes.
We are never getting rid of this schizo janny. Not until ABIB fucks off and dies, or someone else on the staff removes him.
>>451461 Both GR8 and all the board-slecific rules are just excuses that the staff can use to slap you with lengthy bans for any arbitrary reason that suits them. I'm most likely going to be eating two bans for calling them out in the Ride thread just now.
Funny thing is, since I spend most of my time in the weeks now at a campus with its own network their bans won't even fucking matter long-term - I won't be able to follow the storytimes or image dumps (since the place refuses to open images in most cases) but I can post just fine.
>>451469 The fact that 4chan has become a place where free speech is suppressed almost on the level of Spacebattles or SV is fucking depressing. This is what happens when powertripping tyrants are allowed to run wild with nobody to keep them in check.
At this point, even fucking Tumblr is less cancerous now.
>>451469 I lived, bitch! >>451470 That's so odd. A least you can read the archived threads on the ride website >>451471 It's a fucking dump and I've given up on posting there (aside from our threads of course, there's no way I'm letting them win)
>>451471 >>451472 There was a Tumblr post that really resonated with me - it was basically just stating that we should absolutely stop pussyfooting around or trying to 'sanitize' our dialogue when dealing with shitty people or shitty opinions. It was basically saying "we should absolutely bring back telling these people to fuck off or kill themselves for having terrible takes online instead of trying to be nice to even the scummiest of people" and was throwing shade at all the bullshit where you literally can't say any no-no words to anyone anymore without being permabanned from almost all platforms.
And it hit me that if this exact same post were made on 4chan today to call out our staff, the jannies, and all of the schizos they're implicitly defending with their inaction, it would be banned faster than you could blink. That's when it truly hit me that 4chan was irreversibly fucked when fucking Tumblr was advocating for more free speech than we ever have in two decades.
I will say that we would be better off just being here. But like I said before, the turnout just isn't there. Unless we get a whole lot of lurkers that I'm not aware of. I just pay attention to the posts we get.
>>451475 People are content with their normal and won't readily change - I should know, I'm like that a lot IRL and even though I'm aware of it, it's still difficult to break. I didn't even start out liking coming here, but I think repeat bans over bullshit forcing me to start posting here instead actually helped break me from the belief that I need to use 4chan as my primary means of interacting with these threads.
So unless something similar happens to most of the others, these threads will always remain very slow and empty compared to the 4chan ones.
So many deleted posts today. At least we can read them on the website, which is one of the reasons I made it in the first place. Can't moderate independent websites! >>451473 It can't be saved without firm leadership that's involved with the community and that's never going to happen. I totally agree about gatekeeping. We need to just tell people they're not welcome if they're going to be distruptive >>451475 I'd rather post here, but I'll stick around for any threads on 4chan. I've given up posting in non-ride threads though >>451476 If he is IDWkun, then someone needs to contact the mods on IRC when he's asleep. He never deletes posts between 4am and 9am
>>451477 It's a shame. I have tabs for both 4chan and here open at all times. I have the Sonic threads pinned on 4chan and check to see if there are new posts here often. The best thing about this place is the freedom (within reason). So wonderful being able to post comics and not worry about someone deleting them for nearly no reason. >>451478 I know what I want to do but I need to figure out when I can do it. New thread but do I wait until the old thread hits bump limit or even longer until it just about archives.
>>451477 I get banned relatively often (but not today, eat shit janny!) so I'm used to interacting here. I used to think 4chan was the best place to interact anonymously with people but it's becoming increasingly not worth it. I don't even recognize 4chan anymore, and you're here forever only works if the 4chan you knew still exists. Honestly, the lack of anything for the 20th anniversary really drove that point home for me. >>451479 They're making up the rules as they go along so it's hard to advise. I say start the next storytime in the current thread, and then move onto a new thread once it gets near page 10. Ultimately, they can't go much further than they already are, so if we can adapt to this, we win. We just passed 190k posts in these threads, which is 190k losses for our special friend
>>451480 When that thread hits page 10 I'm going to redo today's Archie comics. If it survives then I'll continue posting new Archie pages. I can manage doing a continuous Archie thread and keep going until it hits bump limit. But again my concern is when I make a new thread because the old one hits bump limit, do I just keep waiting until it hits page 10? Or do I keep posting in the old thread right up until it hits page 10 and then start a new thread?
>>451483 The only clear cut solution is start an Archie thread, let it die, then not make another thread until it's time for the next one. If people want to talk about Sonic then they'll have to come here. I just don't think many people will. Also, hard to link to here for those that want to know because those get deleted.
So I SEEM to have somehow avoided eating a double fucking whammy of a ban courtesy of ABIB and IDWkun - as in, both temporary blocks were revoked before they could conclude so it apparently didn't go through. Meaning either another upper-ranking mod like ABIB intervened and told him and our schizo to stop being utter nonces, or ABIB realized how obvious it would make his involvement seem if a bunch of people simultaneously got banned after calling him and IDWkun out + him literally showing he's aware of our situation by directly acknowledging our multiple threads, so he pulled out from banning us.
Either way, I'm counting this as a win.
>>451476 The one silver lining is that ABIB gives up extremely easily to active resistance, so it's entirely possible that he might give up on defending him if enough people complain and take it up with the staff about his bullshit. Unlikely, but still.
>>451482 Yeah, this is a tricky one. It's easy enough to fill up an Archie thread and start a new thread a few hours later, but then we're back in the same position we were in today. My suggestion is we have one thread up all the time, and when one archives, we do a single issue in the new thread but do the full storytime at the usual time. I could potentially make a new thread if you're not around, but I'd restorytime the last issue you did so you can still do the proper storytime
>Error: You are temporarily blocked from posting for violating /co/ 1 - Off-Topic, Comics/Cartoons Only. This block will expire in 5 minutes. Well, I guess it was bound to happen. I wonder what will happen next.
>>451484 If I want to talk about Sonic I'll jdut go on /v/ and start a new "AI Sonics" thread then post abominations for however long it takes me to get it out of my system or get new inspiration. That or make a powerlevel thread and watch the posts roll in.
>>451484 We could do that, but I'd rather we had a 24/7 presence there since that annoys him so much. I'd obviously prefer to talk here though >>451486 Yeah, I got two temporary blocks, but no one banned me. I guess there was too much scrutiny >>451488 I hope so too, but it's just a symptom of the larger organizational rot within 4chan. Ultimately site culture (and long-term viability!) is defined by the approach to moderation >>451489 We could, but then we'd be playing into their games
I'm actually bothered by that anon that keeps siding with the mods like we're spamming. >hey, maybe you shouldn't breathe so much, just hold your breath because the mod doesn't like you taking in oxygen
>>451490 EST. I did the calculations here >>450897 based on 4chan time. Looks like it's actually 5am to 9am, but he's usually in bed by 1am >>451491 Welcome to the club! >>451494 It's all so they can force us to post in /sthg/ instead of having comfy threads >>451495 That's probably the one thing that genuinely annoyed me today. I expect this attitude from our special friend, but not from fellow anons
>>451494 >>451497 Yeah, if we're being completely honest with ourselves here. These trheads we've been having have been low key a general already sorta. but they are literally better than sthg by infinity. You guys make the threads so good.
>>451499 I was also kind of hoping I was maybe speaking to another mod that was pretending to be anon and giving them reasons for what I'm doing and why the mod abuse isn't necessary and makes things worse. One thing I've noticed is that when the mod goes crazy, he stops for some time and then comes back later. Like does it burn them out or they take some time off and then come back to do it again?
>>451506 Personal grudge against Sonic. When Sonic 2 first got its teaser, all threads for it on /co/ were deleted. In /sthg/ there was a mod that made a post saying that talk about the movie would be deleted and the anons there laughed at him and told him to fuck off and continued posting whatever they wanted. I think it's the same mod and there's some stuff where they outed themselves on /sthg/ when they were posting as anon. It's believed to be IDWkun because he hates Archie and has tried to fuck with threads constantly.
>>451501 I did have my suspicions, which is why I just gave him a (you) >>451502 I have a databse of all of our threads so I can make the archives for the website. It was then just a matter of finding any deletions over 30 minutes (those can only be from jannies) and plotting the deletion time. Some might be legitimate deletions from other mods/jannies, but there's a definite pattern. >>451503 Thanks! >>451504 I suspect there's a mod hierarchy and someone tells him to knock it off for a bit. They're massively understaffed so they can't really drop any of the mods unless they really misbehave >>451505 He's been at it for a long time, and while he still slips up, he has been trying to improve his tactics >>451506 It's just one guy who has a hateboner for our threads for whatever reason. He's perfectly fine with IDW threads being a cesspool >>451507 >implying a new one will be out anytime soon Seriously though, I hope not
>>451509 I don't get to say it often, but good job /sthg/ for telling him to fuck off. They may be schizos, but they're better than our special friend could ever hope to be >>451512 The schizo will never post here since this site has actual moderation that even drops in to chat with us >>451513 Let's see how long it stays up!
>>451512 Someone already did. I don't want to invite trouble here but we've talked to the admin here who does pop in sometimes. They're cool. If there's trouble and it's reported then it would likely get dealt with.
Not entirely related to his current convo but I just noticed there's still super old archie sonic threads in the catalog. I wonder if they can be archived on a site like TP's one to see them incase they go.
>>451519 Yeah, if you archived them. that would be nice and there's something I heard. Apprently Ian said something about scourge fucking fiona on sonic's bed here lmao on this site and im wondering if thats true.
>>451519 That there's someone actively snooping around Ride threads just deleting things for no reason is just fucking strange to me. Do they have nothing else to do? Go like do actual janitor work instead of whatever this is.
>>451522 We're on thread 10 here and despite all the talk about moderation there's a lot of comics posted here that can't be posted on 4chan. But yeah it's slow here. I still post stuff from time to time. You can also post videos with sound. This place has a lot of perks.
>>451520 I'll look into it then! >>451521 Potential new strategy, find a recent post on co with a link to Plus and use that instead. You can find the most recent non-deleted post on desu: https://desuarchive.org/co/search/text/https%3A%2F%2Fboards.plus4chan.org/deleted/not-deleted/ >>451523 He's obsessed with our threads
Might as well start posting new pages of fan comics in here for the foreseeable future if the mod/janny combo doesn't like two Sonic threads at the same time on the entirety of /co/ for the whatever in-their-own-head reasons.
>>451510 >He's perfectly fine with IDW threads being a cesspool I still can't get over the fact the fucking asshole was fine with drawn CP staying up on that latest IDW thread for like a solid 1-2 hours, but God forbid the Conductor posts a page of a comic with Rotor in it.
>>451527 Wow, you certainly wouldn't see me getting banned for that! Tries to post something. Oh for fuck's sake! >>451529 I've been waiting for one to finish so I can post it. It's really good for heterofag smut >>451531 Same. Not like I have a choice now anyway!
>>451539 Fun fact: IDWkun used to spam bench tails and actual gore in our threads, which is why I've had to write code delete some posts from the archive before they go up on the website >>451540 Exactly. I only ever get short bans since anything over 3 days means you can appeal. >>451541 F. Sorry to hear that Konductor. I'd do he next one myself if I wasn't already banned. I could do the Thursday and Friday if you want >>451543 Want to try the IRC?
Just a reminder that Ride threads, back in the good days of /v/, were fucking sacrosanct and anyone who complained about them or tried to report them was rightfully told to fuck off or were the ones banned themselves.
>>451548 >Fun fact: IDWkun used to spam bench tails and actual gore in our threads, which is why I've had to write code delete some posts from the archive before they go up on the website What is it with powertripping mods on every website and having an endless stream of CP, gore and gross hentai to spam at their targets? Is there some fucking supplier website akin to an IRL teacher's supplies stores that I'm not aware of?
>>451551 The sorts of people who become moderators are the most likely to have truly depraved stuff stored on their hard drives for whatever ungodly reason. I have never figured out why - but I guess that's just what happens when you think you're an untouchable god-king over the lesser plebians of the internet.
>>451553 Yes. I have always done my best to dance around issues and not straight out call out moderation but when the anon was able to interact with mods and they were asking for examples, I had to take the opportunity to post examples and then they got deleted and I got banned for it. Ain't that some shit?
Note the massive fucking gap between the temporary blocks being revoked wnd the bans being issued. This paired with the one anon who got 6 whole days but could appeal, and it's likely that ABIB and IDWkun intended to give out even longer bans but had to massively backpedal so as to not get the rest of the staff hot on their ass - which is why they took so long giving these ones.
>>451550 I've never used it, but there's a link here: https://www.4channel.org/faq#banappeal >>451551 They trade it amongst themselves and other degenerates. Unfortunately where there's demand, supply will always show up >>451554 It really is disgraceful
>>451551 You need to remember that no sane person would moderate for free, why do you think websites such as leddit are so fucking bad that if you say wrongthink you get instabanned? Same reason here. You need to be terminally online, anyone normal likes touching grass. These retards do not. they legit have no life and the only dopamine they get is when they inact their shitty little power fantasies upon people.
>>451557 >https://www.4channel.org/faq#banappeal I... don't think I'm doing it right. >>451559 At this rate it's going to happen that way anyway. There have been times where all Sonic threads were deleted. We even got someone that complained about it happening and then that post got deleted.
>>451559 Yeah part of me really has that fear. Like, we're obviously not the ones doing anything wrong, but the ones with the mod/janny powers are the ones who ultimately have the final say in the matter.
Honestly the effort to have all the Sonic stuff "contained" into a singular thread makes me think they want the Ride to become a general so they can nuke it off /co/.
>>451549 No anon you don't get it, 4chan is only for COOL stuff like guns, gritty games, ecchi anime and being a Republican. It's only supposed to be for complaining about the latest AAA game having a "they/them" option in the character creator, spamming completely unrelated slurs at those who disagree with you, and for making fun of people if they share custom content and they aren't good at it yet.
Any earnest, polite fun must be shot out the back like a rabid dog.
>>451565 >Honestly the effort to have all the Sonic stuff "contained" into a singular thread makes me think they want the Ride to become a general so they can nuke it off /co/. That's exactly what they want. Though given IDWkun's blatant biases towards IDW threads, that will obviously never happ3n. For no other reason than him being self-defeating.
>>451569 Could you imagine it becomes the next /mlp/
>>451572 I think? But I think it's also contrarianism, there's been legistations getting passed that disrupted or are threatening to disrupt some of the generators, as well as more public outrage as more prominent creatives are getting shafted by certain generators, not just literally-who book cover artists and whatnot.
>>451572 Microsoft got the rights to show off the new DALL-E3 image generator through their Bing search engine, so anons are making pictures with it in droves. Mostly because it's one of the better ones out right now, making actually pretty cool pictures if you give it the right prompt. Hell people are even making ecchi smut with it with sneaky prompts, be it human or anthro. It's probably its golden hour at the minute before MS decide to utterly gimp it and make it super boring just like with what happened to ChatGPT after that got way too popular
>>451590 I didn't want to do that or else it might torpedo any chance at getting some kind of an agreement. I'll just go ahead with a constant Archie thread. I'll have a few days to think about how I want to do it.
>>451589 Damn. Thanks for trying at least. I guess that confirms they don't care about moderation outside of their own interests, or that this guy is in cahoots with our special friend. I might write up an effortpost on all the shit we've had to deal with over the next few days. I'll share it around on pastebin for feedback
Oh, and do you want me to run a thread once I'm unbanned? I could finally do that Birdstone comic!
>>451593 Well I did threaten to post it if you ever got banned again, and I'm a degenerate of my word! I'll just go through the main Birdstone comic since I'll only have 2 threads. That way if you get banned again, we can do the even longer spinoff!
>>451589 >"Sonic threads shouldn't clutter the board" >Two threads on the entirety of /co/ is "cluttering" the board Yeah this is just malicious. They just personally don't like Sonic media so they're creating arbitrary rules to keep it off /co/ or at list minimize it. Just literal powertripping.
The workaround is constant Archie threads. One hits bump limit then another is made. I have two things I need to figure out. 1. When to start a new one. I've mentioned many times I need to figure that out. 2. What to start a new thread with. If I post more comics at 7pm EST everyday, what do I post for new threads not at that time?
The alternative is make an Archie thread, it dies, and then if anyone wants to discuss Sonic they'd have to come here. Then the next day make another Archie thread.
>>451589 >>451590 I think they consider Sonic toeing the line because he's really a video game character. So they probably think "If we allow Sonic, why don't we just allow every cartoon and comic media of video games all over the board". Technically, that isn't rule-breaking at all because of the media basically still being /co/-related, but I can see someone going "No" towards it.
>>451594 Good news, there's even more Birdstone spinoff content! >>451598 1. I say wait to page 9 or 10 at first, and then try going earlier 2. Maybe post a single issue, or just the first story? >>451600 It's not canceled, it's just evolving into a more resilient form
>>451463 As tempting as it is, I think the mod might perceive mentioning those janny's missaction as abuse of the appeal system and I should restrain myself to focus solely on my personal... >>451464 >>451466 WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK? Alright, I will mention this this is fucking too far. Hope it reach someone who has decided to give at least half a fuck.
I wonder if the janny is using your mention of your Sonic and the Freedom Fighter comic as a break of the the "no promotion" rule. that would be BS, but I'd see him being able to get away with that explanation. Either that or he see the Archie thread as thread spamming, regardless of the many thread with similar topic existing oat the same time...
>>451600 /sthg/ actually liked keeping comic things contained in /co/, even if they did storytime IDW issues when they were released. If we headed there and started storytiming Archie because of this they would bitch out to 4chan admins almost immediately.
>>451601 Conductor is correct, the actual answer is that these people care not for whether or not Sonic counts as /co/, they're just shitting up threads because of some incredibly dumb personal vendetta.
But in all seriousness, I'd argue Sonic is much more /co/ than he is /v/ at this point. The franchise is defined by it's multimedia outreach. Many fans of the series are those who grew up with the comics/shows first and the games second.
The franchise had enough momentum in the comics space that it netted a second line of comics once they got nuked from its original publisher of choice. It's had not one, not two, not three but six cartoons so far. It's got two movies with the third one in production.
Talk to kids and teens in your life that sport Sonic merch and most will tell you in their own way that their introduction to the franchise was something like the movies or Sonic Boom or Prime.
And, obviously, the fandom aspect. There's games and ROM hacks, sure, but the bulk of the media the fandom produces is in the form of art, fancomics, fanfics and animated videos/shorts.
The least we could do in the next thread is try keeping the posts that have "metadrama" separate from the ones that show the comic panels, so that the schizo hopefully doesnt delete pages from the storytime.
Also if anyone else wants to do it, post the desuarchive link to the previous issues as an answer to the OP. You know, to the anons that might have missed the storytime. Dont have to say anything more, just let the anons see for themselves what happened.
>>451609 That was a one time thing. I always sidestep stuff like that while posting. I only did that one time because an anon was talking to mods asking for examples and I wanted to get that done while posting. Turns out nothing happened, the posts were deleted, and I got banned for it.
https://desuarchive.org/co/thread/139777837#p139785088 Here's the link to the start of the Archie issues in the Unofficial Thread because the two times I tried to make an Archie thread were deleted because this thread was still up.
>>451611 Because the Archie thread dies before the night is over. So either there's around a 16 hour period with no Sonic storytime threads or another Archie thread has to be made right after that. And that's tricky because what do I start that thread with?
>>451611 Because if they force only one Sonic thread to be up, any troll like the one we know of, can make a "discussion" thread about Sonic comics just to block the storytime from happening.
>>451612 Maybe we could hijack any troll Sonic threads that are up and storytime in them. The schizo might somehow manage to delete the posts for being "offtopic" to the discussion, but I honestly dont think he has that power. He would have used this on the countless times there was a discussion of archie in other threads.
>>451589 >two threads are "cluttering the board" Yeah, the other anons are right - this is targeted maliciousness. ABIB even personally 'oversees' /v/, so he fucking KNOWS what ACTUAL spam looks like. He just doesn't give a shit unless it's to sperg at something that personally offends him, and Sonic is definitely that.
>>451606 Yeah, this is one of the few things that if someone mentioned it to /sthg/ and specifically mentioned that the likes of ABIB are involved, they'd 100% side with us on this and immediately start maliciously fucking with the staff until they give in. I'd say somebody here (who isn't banned) should mention it to them solely to piss off ABIB, IDWkun, and their fellow cocksuckers.
>>451611 Because once he manages to consolidate us to one thread, he can then either 1) delete our threads at will the second any other schizo makes a troll thread that's "older" than ours, meaning we'd have to wait God knows how long for the shitpost thread to die before we could make a new Ride thread or 2) he can Nuke us off the board entirely with the justification that "Ride threads are a Sonic general" - which is blatantly false, but so long as ABIB is backing him up, it will go through.
>>451614 >The schizo might somehow manage to delete the posts for being "offtopic" to the discussion, but I honestly dont think he has that power. I know for a fact that jannies and/or mods can do this - they've deleted posts that spam either previously done Sonic fancomics in our threads before or literal Sonic porn, so if either ABIB or our special friend wanted, they could view our posts as "spamming" or "offtopic" to have us banned. It's not worth it, and even less to have our threads associated with the types of schizos brought over from there.
The best option is unironically to have someone make /sthg/ aware that ABIB and his pet janny are intentionally sabotaging the Archie Ride after having left it alone for years. They hate the staff on principle FAR more than they do us, and will almost assuredly make shit absolutely miserable for them if need be.
I already have a good idea what to do. It'll be different but it'll cover a lot of bases. I would like to be a little risky to test something but aside from that it should be fine. We'll see on Saturday.
>>451591 It's ABIB, Conductor. He always had no intention of actually giving you a proper answer - he was always stringing you on and expecting you to kowtow to blatant moderator tyranny. He always does this shit and it's why all of /v/ that isn't sucking up to him for shitpost reasons wants him dead.
>>451591 >>451619 I'll also add that ABIB is a massive Nintendofag with blatant biases and has broken board and overall site rules multiple times before as it suits him, and gets away with it due to being part of the staff. He hates Project Moon threads and tried to delete them under the grounds of them not being a "cultural phenomenon like Smash", was insta-deleting XIV threads since 2015, and more. He genuinely does not believe the site should be used for any thing other than Nintendo discussion and shitposting.
It's absolutely possible he has a full on culture/tribe war mentality regarding Sonic having been a rival to Nintendo's biggest IP back in the day and has a chip on his shoulder about it having constant threads because of that. He's that mentally ill.
>>451621 Oh, and he was removing Snootgame/Goodbye Volcano High threads over on /v/ when it just released. Keep in mind that this is a game created by someone who used to post on /v/ and made updates about their progress.
He has always hated the purpose of this site, and has always hated the posters on it for not discussing what he believes should be the sole topic of discussion. He was never going to hear us out from the moment he came in defending IDWkun fucking us over.
>>451532 "No new thread until the previous one has reach bump limit/pruned" is really a new rule, though, as there was never an issue with making a new unofficial one when the previous one was still kicking.
Can’t believe some of you actually retarded enough to suggest /sthg/ to help us. Don’t do that shit man. We shouldn’t be that desperate and I hope none of you actually brought up this situation to them or I’ll fucking punch your throats
>>451574 > moderators are the most likely to have truly depraved stuff stored Keep it about how the existence of a fan-comics dedicated thread shouldn't prevent the making of an Archie Sonic story-time thread.
>>451625 Wait, "Janitor" is the official term used by the moderation of the board, right? It would really be a downer if the reason the appeal was thrown away was because that term was considered "offensive".
Hey, remember Sonic Epilogue? Well it turns out there is an ending of sorts, in AMV form! You could watch it on YouTube in 4k, but that one has replacement music. The original was timed to fit Numb by Linkin Park. Since it's one of my favorite songs, I've decided to recreate the original, enjoy!
https://the-ride.neocities.org/comics/2022-04-26-sonic-epilogue/ Sonic Epilogue [4K] https://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/470962
>>451634 >Hey, remember Sonic Epilogue? Wow, that take me back >Well it turns out there is an ending of sorts, It barely had a beginning... >The original was timed to fit Numb by Linkin Park. Since it's one of my favorite songs, I've decided to recreate the original, enjoy! That's the most 00's thing I have seen in a while and I loved it. Thanks for finding it.
Is this really all that's known of the Robotnik family tree? Of course there are the other "kids" but I have been curious about Maria's parents and any other humans in here. And Archie has others like Snively, Hope, Colin, and maybe some others.
>>451636 The way that line was drawn bothered me so I moved it a little. Anyway, this lineage will always make me wonder about the age-gap between the related parents of Maria and Robotnik.
Also, My head-canon is that Robotnik also had a sister who married some guy who already had a son from a previous marriage and that son is Snivelli, hence how Robotnik ended up being his uncle by alliance/adoption.
Thirstposter, I have sent you an email. >>451637 In the Archie comics, Colin is Snively's father and Robotnik's brother. He gets turned into a metal statue and is destroyed when Robotropolis gets nuked.
>>451635 No worries! I figure now's an important time to be posting rare and cool stuff >>451636 That's it unfortunately. Eggman does mention that his family spent more time fussing over Maria than him, which made him jealous. That does place him in his mid-50s >>451639 Being Robotnik's main chew-toy would prematurely age anyone >>451638 Responded! Viva La Résistance! >>451641 I had a look and I'm glad to see they're pissed about it too. Frankly they're next on the chopping block
So here's the thing with doing Archie Ride threads here. The file limit is 350 and that includes images and videos. So we would do one thread every other night. By the time we finish, most of this board would be for just that. Also my usual concerns about thread activity being low. >>451644 >What the fuck is going on with them? I was hesitant to talk about ian yesterday during a discussion on him because I was afraid of them randomly banning me again >Wait... So I wasnt the only one who got banned for 13 fucking days just because I was making edgy jokes about ian flynn in a thread? >Jannies need to be replaced with new staff, cuz holy hell they basically banned nearly everyone so far I hear. Or they're hardcore Ian supporters >That's likely the case, his connections run deep in the fandom after all. >Flynney Boy can't handle jokes on the internet This fandom is doomed What? They think it's because of Ian shitposting? Maybe I'm missing something but I don't see much discussion about the threads being deleted because two threads at the same time is considered "clutter." Also there's a lot of post deletions there as well and bans. This whole thing blew up bigger than I was expecting.
>>451653 It was because they were spamming “(kill/hang/maim/strangle) Ian Flynn” over and over again. They were death threats. I also remember posts being deleted the same way when /sthg/ spammed stuff about Lange (Sonic Utopia dev) a few years ago, although, they weren't threats. They were shitting on Ian normally when the Frontiers DLC came out and nothing was deleted and nobody was banned.
>>451657 The whole situation is basically fucked regardless. ABIB is a Nintendo cultist and Pixy fucking despises Archie Sonic, and ABIB will have Pixy's back because he creates further division and chaos within the Sonic fandom on the site.
>>451661 Thing is, that for all his dogged persistence in fucking people over, enough resistance can and will get ABIB to give up. The Project Moon threads won their freedom from moderator tyranny just by the sheer number of threads they made per day and their absolute refusal to budge even an inch when ABIB kept trying to force them off the site. He has no real way to get rid of Sonic threads and he knows it - he's mostly just hoping that in letting Pixy fuck us over, he can get us to drop the Ride or that we won't incite other Sonic fans across the site to start lashing out against the staff.
I certainly have no clue how he intends to stop threads about the Knuckles show coming this month from being made without going full scorched earth on everything.
>>451655 Understandable. It took me a while but I got used to it. For example I had trouble with the threads as they are on the board where you expand the entire thread and have to scroll up but once I noticed that going into the thread by clicking on "No." next to the post # I got into the thread and that made things much better. The rest was just adjusting to the changes. >>451656 >>451657 To think they completely missed the point and are blaming Ian is so hilariously /sthg/. And more making death threats? Might as well burn down your house and blame that on Ian too. >>451661 Yeah there's no solution but to play by their rules to the best of our abilities. I think I have a solution so we'll see if it works starting Saturday.
>>451662 But on the other hand, the Sonic fandom IS divided, and while ABIB truly has no way to get rid of Sonic as a whole on the site, Pixy's hatred for Archie Sonic and media he considers adjacent to it will likely be the only parts of Sonic that will suffer on 4chan, and there are other sects of Sonic fans who will either be indifferent or be happy with it.
>>451650 Same. The good news is I'll be doing a the Birdstone comic once my ban expires. I'll post here once I've started >>451652 That really does suck. I can't even imagine what it'd be like to have so much obsessive hate for a single poster that you ban all walruses from the site >>451653 I'd be fine doing it here, but I wouldn't want to colonize the board with Sonic threads. Also, I go into withdrawals if I can't post yes_hahaha_yes.png every few days >What? They think it's because of Ian shitposting? It's a separate incident. Someone made a shitpost about hanging Ian and half their thread's posters got banned. Some of them (wrongly) assumed that our threads got deleted because he worked on Archie and has some sort of backchannel connection to the mods >>451657 >>451661 At least we know ABIB's the mod IDWkun sucks up to now >>451662 That's good to know. Honestly them trying to kick us off has only made me want to stick around >I certainly have no clue how he intends to stop threads about the Knuckles show coming this month from being made without going full scorched earth on everything. I can't wait! >>451664 He can't stay awake 24/7, so if he wants all mention of Archie gone he'll have to enlist more mods and jannies to his cause
Okay question, who is Pixy? I've seen some people mention they've been banned from most non-anon Sonic fandom spaces. The name rings a bell but all that I can find when I look them up is someone who works on that Freedom Planet game, and I seriously doubt that's the same person.
>>451670 >>451671 He's some delirious schizo that /sthg/ found out was the guy always raving across multiple boards about "Richmunk", calling people "diaperfags" for the merest mention of Archie or them using the term Mobians, and was the same guy who obsesses over IDW and praises it as being "actual canon" unlike "Fartchie". Then they dug even deeper and found out that he's a supreme autist who got himself banned from literally all of the Sonic discussion forums that aren't 4chan-related. https://arch.b4k.co/vg/search/text/Pixy%20Sonic/
Oh, and he's also from Kiwifarms. Make of that what you will.
>>451672 Anon, he's not just a rando. He literally outed himself not just as a janny on 4chan, but also as being a turbo schizo from kiwifarms who did the exact same autistic shit hating on Archie like he does now - and said schizo meltdowns are what led to every Sonic-adjacent forum banning the shit out of him until he fell into our laps.
If he was just a rando, it would be easy to ignore but he's done this for years. https://desuarchive.org/co/search/text/Archieshit/ https://desuarchive.org/co/search/text/Fartchie/ https://desuarchive.org/co/search/text/Diaperfags/page/2/ https://desuarchive.org/co/search/text/Richmunk/
>>451674 I said this before and I’ll say this again. You know those pics and spam of insults using diapsrfag, Archie whatever, etc that using tangle pics or whatever. Well I found out at least that person who also happens to take up that shitposting was a previous rider who decided he just didn’t like Archie sonic. It’s fine to not like it but it seems he just decided to be Malicious about it for whatever reason. Found out about this shit because that dumbass doesn’t change his files
>>451673 >>451674 >KiwiFarms faggot God fucking damn it, every single time it's always one of those motherfuckers. Hands down the worst site tourists come from. They're so shameless about the way they've brought most of the blue boards to shit, too.
>>451671 Older Amy is doing things to me. Also is her and Sonic's daughter a preemie or something? She's fucking tiny!
>>451681 Have you seen real world hoglets, anon? They're absolutely tiny - you could squeeze one between your fingers if its early enough and lacking developed spines. This is actually one of those things fanart gets consistently right when it comes to the sizes of baby hedgehogs or echidnas.
Also, Aurora probably seems smaller because Boomverse Mobians are lanky giants.
>>451678 He also seems to have mindbroksn himself obsessing over Richmunk, himself a super schizo with some truly disgusting habits. Seems to be pretty common with schizos basically creating other schizos in some form of incestuous ouroboros.
>>451684 What was really fucking funny for me one time is seeing him go between the schizo mode and “regular “ posting in a thread one time. I even called him out on this and he never replied lol. Again, I think that guy just went off the deep end with the hate to shitpost and even false flag sometimes. But also I ant to let you know too that not everyone who does that is the same person in just the case I’ve mentioned I actually know
>>451666 Honestly, that'd be perfect. We could have a thread for general discussion and then threads just for comics >>451667 It's simply too sexy for him to handle >>451668 Same. I mostly got into it because I'd heard it actually gave a backstory to Knuckles and even gave him his own series >>451671 Aww, they look so cute dressed up >>451673 >Knux in a dog suit Well I guess one more fetish can't hurt! >Kiwifarms I'm not 100% convinced he's from there since his poststyle seems different. I haven't done a thorough look though, and he does like to sockpuppet >>451676 I agree! >>451684 And to think I've been planning on storytiming his movie pitch storyboards! It is pretty funny to think IDWkun's got the hots for Kuta >>451687 It's good to see they kept up the rivalry
Sonic and the Freedom Fighters Note: Eggman created Breezie, a robot that looked like a normal hedgehog, to seduce Sonic. It failed and Breezie was abandoned because she was deemed no longer useful. But the idea of a robot that doesn’t look like one is something Eggman didn’t consider further possibilities for. Breezie will. But what to call robot mobians…
>>451275 There's actually some fancomic stuff that has come out lately that should be posted somewhere. With the rest of Archie Sonic Forever's backup story done, here's the entire 8 page story. This is Network Not Found!
https://www.archiesonicforever.com >>451695 Yeah, that sounds way too silly and lame!
>>451693 The problem with SatAM and Archie isn't those two pieces of media in and of themselves (for the most part), it's the rabid fanbase they acquired that dominated English-speaking fandom spaces in the 2000's and early 2010's.
Take Sally for example. How many people actually hate just her as a character, and how many people hate her due to overexposure from the fandom or because they've seen one too many annoying fans of her bash other female characters of the franchise?
>>451701 >>451698 Damn, shores really decided to make bunnies boobies really big in the art. Also, I saw on their Twitter, they apparently also decided that Matilda had autism and actually did research to writer her, not kidding on that and kind of neat they did the research for that.
>>451707 Now for some story summaries for the next issue. Sounds like it's going to be packed. >Here's the cover for our next issue! >Archie Sonic Forever ends the Mecha Sally saga with a bang. >In "At All Costs Part Two", Lien-Da's plans lead to an explosive end, and the Death Egg's greatest asset is the key to Sally's rescue -- but will she come back the same as she left? >In "Segfault Crash", Bunnie's role in a grand scheme comes to light, and her relationship with her uncle Beau will never be the same again. >In "Forgotten Tether", Gae-Na makes a deal with the devil -- and he's allied with an unexpected, familiar face. >And in "Snooping As Usual", the Secret Freedom Fighters investigate Geoffrey St. John's strange behavior, and Elias discovers a long-buried secret about himself. >>451706 >Damn, shores really decided to make bunnies boobies really big in the art. Not to mention Nicole's body. Gotta love it when artists give the girls some meat.
>>451708 Pretty cool to see echidna stuff. And man, I can’t wait for both fan comics to finally move past the naugus/mecha sally stuff I want to see something new! > Not to mention Nicole's body. Gotta love it when artists give the girls some meat Tru dat
>>451275 Chaos in Order Page 15-21 https://www.deviantart.com/maxsmonsters This series has been updating and I didn't even notice. This is the one where Shadow was sent to another world by Eggman. Now he needs to find a way back. Page 1-12 https://desuarchive.org/co/thread/137139203/#137139383 Page 13-14 https://desuarchive.org/co/thread/137486456/#137495275 >>451709 >Pretty cool to see echidna stuff. And man, I can’t wait for both fan comics to finally move past the naugus/mecha sally stuff I want to see something new! Some fresh Archie fan content will be very welcomed. ASO will probably wrap up Naugus in the next issue, Retold just got Sally back but she's still Mecha, Heroes Come Back may not come back, and I'm not sure what else has been trying to resolve those plot points.
>>451691 They were failures for the same reason, Kuta was involved and he loves starting drama >>451692 We may have our differences but they should know they'll be the last remaining place to discuss Sonic on 4chan. I'd rather stay here, but I'm going to keep posting comics on principle now >>451694 Cool that you're keeping her a robot. You could call them Robokens or Morristonians after the robots in Boom I kid, I kid >>451702 >I bet he uses margarine out of spite. Cursed >>451707 Oh mah stars! >>451708 Very nice! >>451710 Oh shit, I love this one! >>451712 >This comic gives me the vibe of an artist that likes Sonic but also wants to do their own original story so just put a character in one. We've covered a few of those now >>451713 Jerk-dow best-dow >>451716 No talking about the Maekawa Master Plan in front of Shadow!
>>451721 >>Favorite game? S3&K for 2D, SA2 for 3D. Special mention to Black Knight for the best plot >>LEAST favorite game? Lost World. I actually enjoyed the 3DS version though >>Favorite character(s)? Sonic and Knuckles >>LEAST favorite character(s)? Komi-Ko. She knows why! Seriously though, I guess the Zeti, but I'm more indifferent to them than anything >>Favorite show? OVA, or Boom if it needs to be a TV show >>Favorite official comic? Archie, but Fleetway's a close second
Might be no threads on /co/ right now but it's nice to know that you all are still here, at least the ones that came around.
>>451721 >Favorite game? Sonic 3 & Knuckles >Least favorite game? Sonic Blast >Favorite character(s)? The Chaotix >Least favorite character(s)? I don't particularly have one, though I'm not that much of a fan of Marine cause she's annoying >Favorite show? Probably a toss up between the OVA and AoStH >Favorite official comic? Overall, I guess Archie. It has the largest spectrum of vibes and was pretty entertaining
>>451732 Well I'm exhausted. I have no idea how you do it. Off to nap now >>451733 lmao, it knows you read the threads! Also, there's over a thousand of them, so there's a good chance at least one will show up
>>451668 I like a lot of the very unconventional characters introduced in the comics with fun species choices or just very charming yet still stylistically fitting designs and the fact that the game/show characters despite some spotty writing periods before 160 and very rarely after, can get great moments to shine such as with Sonic Universe arcs or Eggman getting an unambiguous victory over Sonic in the Egg Beater
>>451653 At that rate, you could get your own entire board to spare +4 /co/. Maybe even move the existing threads there, problem is that there's no function for moving threads, and if I move them manually the backlinks would get permanently broken. I suppose I should start working on that.
>>451655 >It’s just easier I'd argue that posting here is easier due to lack of captcha, but for image dumps the duplicate rule is indeed an issue.
>and admittedly I just don’t like this layout for the site What don't you like about it? I'm always open for feedback, but no one is giving me any.
>>451663 >you expand the entire thread and have to scroll up but once I noticed that going into the thread by clicking on "No." next to the post # I got into the thread and that made things much better.
Basic navigation should work the same here as it is on regular 4chan, including the part where you can click on the "No." for the post link, or the postnumber to open quick reply. The only difference is that we have inline backlinks, which on 4chan is optional.
>>451746 That would be amazing! If it's too much trouble I wouldn't mind starting over on a new board with new threads. Then I wouldn't mind doing more storytimes here. I do feel like I haven't done enough to get more people to frequent here but 4chan moderation is doing a good job helping that as well. I would try to promote this board over there whenever I can to further incentivize people to stick around here.
Being able to post the same image in different threads is fine if possible for those that want to post reaction images. Even if it's limited to just one post of the same image per thread.
I don't know if you can do anything about it but I will say that images load slower when expanding compared to 4chan is. I can work towards reducing file sizes but I'm not sure if there's a way to make it faster on your end.
>>451748 Again, if you can give me specific examples, I can look into if they can be implemented.
>>451749 No promises, but I'll look into it. More than a few things are needed to get it done in an optimal way. I'd like to move the existing threads there too, it would be better to give you your own fiefdom instead of having +4 /co/ be exclusively your threads. /tnt/ was made for the same reason.
Image duplicate rules can be either once per board, once per thread, once every 15 minutes per board, once every 15 minutes per thread (no limit if you post it in different threads), or no limit whatsoever. Problem is, our hosting space is limited, and the way the board handles images is extremely inefficient and wastes a lot of space. If I set it to no limit, I'll have to set either lower image sizes, or have the board do auto pruning. Except that the board software can't do pruning, and it's not easy to implement in a way that can't be abused.
>images load slower when expanding compared to 4chan is Do you mean transfer speed or initial wait before transfer starts? I can't do much about transfer speed unless someone helps to bankroll the site.
