They sent a message to all BOs about it, and there are some (I think new) little text banners here and there saying the TOR link on the main page and so on. My guess is relations with their host aren't super great, and with all the other deplatforming going on, they are just waiting for the email now. Sounds like the situation sucks.
I don't browse here any more either other than /hydrus/, and I should have moved a while ago, I was just putting it off.
Although, funnily enough, having said I would 'lock' the board, I then couldn't find that option in the admin panel. I'll have another look today once I am caught up with the main threads, but if you just can't do that, I'll make a sticky with an announced deletion date. Making an archive of the Q&A thread is probably worthwhile.
I am not sure. I considered trying for 8chan.moe or somewhere in the webring, since that is where I browse these days personally, and they are opening up board creation in more places. But I think I'll just sit at endchan for now. It is a nice quiet corner. I have never been a comfortable board owner, and never good about running and checking a board for spam etc…, so I'd probably be happier just being a janny on a board run by others, which is how the hydrus discord works, although I wouldn't want to ask people to do hotpocket work unless they are keen.
Yeah, jumping around has been frustrating. My feeling is we will get another wave of hosts setting new rules over the next 1-3 months and taking out wrongthink and then things will settle again. If you are comfortable in a more normie-friendly experience, the discord is at https://discord.gg/wPHPCUZ
The plan to move to Endchan as primary board has changed.
Codexx here on 8chan.moe kindly offered to host me on /t/, so I will now be maintaining a Hydrus Network General thread there.
