It is time for a new /b/admin. We've had a few of them in the past. Some doxxed themselves and I let them go, some just didn't work out, and I'm not sure what happened to the very last one. If the discord admin is someone who enjoys something like 4chan's old /b/, I would give the board to him, since he seems like someone that cares and puts work into things, given what he did with our discord. If he is not interested, I will give it to a random pun anon and let's hope he does a good job. And if there are people who strongly want to /b/admin even if discord admin wants as well, I can do some sort of lottery to see who wins. What I can't do right now is have multiple mods for /b/ at this moment, it would not work well due to a lack of mod audit tool. In the past, I kinda tried letting badmins sort their own rules, and just asked to try and make something that rewards creativity, but I felt the rules were always messy and not objective. So this time I'm handing down the rules I feel work well with an official /b/ board, and ask that the admin respects it: >1) On topic threads are for creative content. Someone saying something that wasn't said before, someone asking users to post cows on fish chan, people making their own variations of some image. Anything that is creative or inspires people to be creative. As philosoraptor says, it can't be called random if it is always the same threads and reposts. >2) Anything else is off topic. Political discussions, talking about people (especially if in romantic or sexual manner), waifus, personal blog posts, requests. This is to ensure we never end like 4chan's /b/, which was once the main board now has become a boring place for posting porn.

>>25855 >You don't get it dood. We're all waiting until you either die or give up and fuck off. No one wants to be associated with a site with your low tier posting. Again with the "It's not me - it's the jews!" shit. Nobody's buying your narrative, dumbass. We all know that you're just a lazy bum who didn't post shit before I got here, and still won't post shit if I'd leave. Stop being an insult to whites. > just remove /pol/ from the official board list >You didn't need to post a whole paragraph to just request this. >We all know what (((your))) assignment is here, kike shill. I can just picture you at the grave of /pol/ going "NOOO!!! Not /pol/! I had so many quality posts to post! I would make it beautiful, but the jews ruined it for me! I'm not a lazy slob - it's the jews!".

>A Canadian sex toy manufacturer has agreed to hand over $4 million to settle a privacy lawsuit after it was discovered its “smart vibrator,” the We-Vibe 4 Plus, secretly collected highly sensitive personal data, right down to the date and time the device was used. >The lawsuit — filed in the U.S. in September 2016 — alleged We-Vibe manufacturer Standard Innovation designed its app to collect and record intimate and sensitive data on use of the vibrator, including the date and time of each use as well as vibration settings (like “pulse,” “peak” and “cha cha cha”). The We-Vibe requires users to download the app, called We-Connect, so users and their partners to control the Bluetooth-equipped vibrator’s settings remotely. http://globalnews.ca/news/3308543/we-vibe-privacy-lawsuit-settlement/

Devuan considers enacting Code of Conduct.
