Red! I'm so happy to see you back!

AFAIK Kraus will be taking over, but in case he can't for whatever reason I'm willing to. At any rate, regardless of who manages OSC in the future it's good to know there are a number of people willing to provide labor and financial support.

It is 30 of May, what has been decided?

Yeah, I'm also wondering what's going on. I talked to Kraus the other day and it sounds like everything is good to go on his end.

Well its 10PM here on the East Coast of the USA...
Guess I'll start prepping for the worst if it is to come.

Here is a link to a Discord server I made, "Ostan Refugee Camp", for us to gather in if need be.

Hopefully things have somehow been sorted out behind the scenes.

God speed.

Er, what time zone is the server in anyway? I assumed it would be the end of the day in central european time zone, but I don't know.

I figured that as well but I guess we are walking zombies for the time being atm?

For whatever reason the link is rejecting you.
just add me on discord and I'll throw you in the server

For the close call right now, i'll move it to some reserved space, it's not a permanent solution but it allows to not renew useless stuff and to have more time to think about it.


I'm curious about the details too, but I assume this is why OSC is still live.

Well its good that we didn't die off without anything happening.
Hopefully everything will be figured out in time before something happens for the non permanent solution.

i honestly wouldn't mind slipping a £20 here and there
i don't know if it means anything, though

it comes to my attention that some of the inactivity here might be due to us not speaking much outside of this forum anymore. idk about most of you, but the only person from here i talk to regularly is Pent. might be because the conversation ran dry, but i digress. (with that, me apologizing for not being here for the conversation feels dumb since it doesn't affect anything. work and life got in the way. it's been a shit week and a semi-busy month. my hours are dropping, though, so we'll see if i can manage to get more of a presence back here again. what ever happened to Nej?)

@Red: you're back yaaaaaais

@Amazon: Kraus, I realize you're an Amazon partner, but that sounded like a giant infomercial. Regardless, the service sounds nice, but we should weigh other options. The flexibility is nice, but we might be able to get cheaper, and if there's even the potential to pitch a fit about porn, we might have a problem, since there are national and international cases on the books regarding hentai depicting teenagers or those appearing underage, regardless of the character's ACTUAL age or the age of consent in the country of origin.

If we have additional time, perhaps we should all research this further and investigate which countries are more secure for webhosting and which are cheapest, while considering the options each host provides.

Also, it's not ideal, but if we go this route rather than having one of the members let the site shack up with them, I mentioned earlier in the thread that hosting the images on a booru' and the wiki on Wikia, and attaching the links here is also an option and may cut down on site size.


@Crowdfunding: If this becomes a thing, I will promote the hell out of it on every platform I can.
@Advertising: We used to have ads here, when I first started. 'Internet/Otaku History' or not, the only advertisers I see us getting are either knockoff retail or porn. :\

Also noting that I will throw money at the problem (as much as I can manage) until it goes away, once we figure out what's going on.

I'm also guilty of letting life get in the way of my online friendships. Hopefully with summer here I'll be able to maintain a better online presence. :(

it's funny how much it can get in the way. this entire time i just assumed none of you wanted to talk to me. xD;
