Emergency bunker for foreign language communities? Anonymous 02/25/2022 (Fri) 18:14:24 Id:89c364 No. 371
Just saw this thread on /mlp/, looks like a brony community from China is being taken out for one reason or another. https://boards.4channel.org/mlp/thread/38267127 Some anons there have suggested this place being a potential spot to move to, along with some of the potential challenges that may bring. Could be either as simple as allowing foreign language threads and/or a general on the /fim/ board, or as elaborate as creating a foreign language board. Any thoughts on this?

Welp I literally just made this thread but in the interest of not clogging up the catalog with dups I deleted it. So I will repost
>>373 Apologies for my poor timing, friend. You did a far better job than I did with the OP.

>>374 Yeah it's fine, I figured that people would prefer something smaller for an OP. Unrelated to nhnb, but this could be a good time to test drive this new archiver that /pol/ just made before Chinanons site implodes. https://archive.4plebs.org/pol/thread/362672169 >Link Deposit is a tool to organize links into deposits that have a permanent URL and anyone can view them. >It is a website, but behaves like an app on modern browsers, so people don't need to download from App Stores >It happens automatically as you load the page and it can't be removed by App Store guidelines. >Link Deposit supports scanning and generating QR codes, which can help facilitate sharing links. >Instead of saving pastebins in a text file each time you want to post some info on 4chan, you can make a deposit instead and share that permanent URL as text or in QR code format. Note this is NOT crypto related what so ever and has nothing to do with ChainLink just because it has 'Link' in the name.
>>371 While they are of course welcome to post here in English, posting other languages presents a rather large problem. That being that since I can't read it, I can't realistically moderate it (nor would staff). >a general on the /fim/ board While I probably wouldn't mind a thread about foreign communities, the thread itself would still need to be at least majority English. >>375 I'd say start submitting links to the wayback archive as well if you're looking to preserve. https://web.archive.org/save/ Also, is the site still accessible? I tried the link on /mlp/ and it doesn't seem to want to load for me.

>>376 Still accessible through a mirror, not the original. But I'm not sure if the link will paste right with chinese symbols in it. https://nimingban.org/f/%E7%BE%8E%E6%BC%AB Try this then follow the arrows for drop down choices till you get to their /co/ https://nimingban.org/ As for the language, both sides of the fandom know how to use googletranslate and there's browser extensions to autotranslate which /mlp/ and chinanons have used to communicate before. Though they suggest DeepL instead for a better translation
>>377 Seems I am unable to connect from my home ISP. I did manage to somewhat gain access to the site though. >As for the language, both sides of the fandom know how to use googletranslate and there's browser extensions to autotranslate which /mlp/ and chinanons have used to communicate before. Though they suggest DeepL instead for a better translation I'm still not wholly convinced of the effectiveness of autotranslate. There are also some other considerations as well, but let me think on it for a bit and ask other staff what they think.
Alright, after some discussion I think that we'll give it a try. We'll allow one /int/ thread on >>>/fim/ for languages other than English. Some things to note: >The OP should be in English >Most non-English posting should be contained within >We recommend including screenshots of links to non-English destinations >This is very much an experimental sort of thing >All rules are still expected to be followed
