The following is a transcript of kuz's State of the Sharty livestream on August 24th, 2022. Boldened text denotes a question posed, regular text denotes kuz's spoken words.
To be researched: Link the thread where the questions where being asked. Can (You) help us?
Whats the point of this stream again?
Okay. Well what's the point of this stream? Uh, it's because I, you know, I get a little tired when I'm typing out all the time and it's easier on my fingers if i just speak instead.
Thoughts on gemson?
Uh Gemson, you know, I think Gemson's really just he's he's such a controversial subject, well honey I like to keep those things to myself you know, Gemson he's not the kind of thing someone like me should be talking about.
Gemson, really, he's a classic. He's got to be, he's a, you know words can't describe him really but I got to say that if I was gonna put him on a scale i'd give him a strong ten. And I do like Belarus yeah.
Why was suggest wiped and deleted, when it could of just been deleted? Answer please kuzzz
/suggest/, the /suggest/ thing, it was, you know, i was just uh a little strung out that night and it all came so fast. /suggest/, really, I don't believe in meta boards in general. I think that we could just put it all in one. One little place. We don't need, I don't feel like we need that, a whole meta board. It just adds a bunch of trash, but, you know I've relented and I made a promise to everybody I said if you keep it in /suggest/, I won't cause any problems, so if we keep it in /suggest/, keep all the meta in /suggest/, I won't delete it. I shouldn't have renamed it. That was a bit embarrassing, but you know, we've moved on from that, haven't we?
Which do you prefer, Based, Keyed, Egged, Gem, ID, or Alkaline?
Do I prefer, based, keyed, egged, gem, ID? Keyed. I'm a big proponent of locked and keyed. It's always, uh, had a nice ring to me. Keyed. Someone once called me Keyed Kuz. That was lovely.
KUZ DO YOU THINK WE SHOULD ADVERTISE THE SHARTY IRL??
Yes I think we should advertise the 'party. I think it's uh, viral marketing.
KUUUUUUUZ! BAN RAPESON!
Ban Rapeson? No. Rapeson, I think he adds edge. You know what, that's what, that's what this site needs sometimes: Edge. If we water things down too much, it's not gonna be, it's not gonna have that suspense when you open the page, you never know what you can see. I can be wholesome, it could be disgusting. And Rapeson is part of that balance that we need.
Kuz do you like bejita or goku more
I don't know nothing about Bejita or Goku. I haven't watched anime in a long time, and I've never watched that stuff. It's beyond me.
Kuz, do you want the USSR back?
USSR? Well, same thing. That's something that I would keep to myself. USSR, there's good parts about it and there's bad parts. I think that, um, overall, I did appreciate parts of it. Yeah. USSR? Well, 50/50 maybe. I don't like, I'm not a communist, far from it, but everybody has a certain astrology for it.
kuz whats your goal for running all of these imageboards? do you seek fame?
What's your goal for running all these imageboards? Well just for fun really. I don't think you can get much fame out of it, nothing more than I've already got. I don't actually run that many. I host some, but this one is the only one I run actively. Even then I don't really do much with it. I don't fiddle with it that much. It's kind of just uh, you know I've always said it kinda feels like something I'd just, it's like owning rare art. You put it up on the wall and you look at it every once in a while, but you don't come back to it. You know I do come here quite a bit nowadays, but, it's not something that's really an active part of my life anymore.
Kuz are you nervous, why are you stuttering?
Why am I nervous? Well, I haven't made a lot of appearances in like, what, probably, I don't know, many years.
Oh am I too quiet? Hang on am I too quiet? How do I turn this thing up? Is this better?
What about Iron and rust?
Iron and rust? That's my stuff. I made that, I patented that stuff, and that stuff is tame compared to the stuff you see today, but you know I don't really, I don't really, I don't use Iron and Rust. I don't think I ever used them more than twice.
Kooz, PLEASE split /muv/ into /mu/ and /v/
Split /muv/, M U V, how do you guys say it? I've considered it a few times. I don't, I think it'd look better if we, uh, if we had /mu/ and /v/. /muv/, how do you guys say it "movie." That's kind of dumb.
That reminds me of the Minecraft server. You know that was, that was a mess. I have to fix that sometime or another. You know my problem was that I think someone joined in and loaded, like a million chunks and bricked my server. You know that was expensive to fix. Cost me 300 dollars and I haven't fixed it since. Remember that emergency I was on? 300 dollars to repair that shit.. man that was expensive
kuz why do you never call it the sharty
The sharty... I do call it that.. well.. yeah I do call it that. I called it that in my OP post, I dunno what your talking about
kuz what do you think of these god tier wojacks? (several yurijaks)
I think they are all trash is what I think. No offense though, i guess someone put effort into these. I guess the mymy jak is so bad its good actually
Why was 'p up for 6 hours?
Well let me tell you guys the truth.. we only have.. well at the time that was a problem.. we only had uh.. 1 mod and uh.. 3 janitors, and 1- 2 of them was inactive. and they was all in the same timezone, so we only had about 60% of the day covered.. i got alot of good applications.. thank you everyone that applied.. but basically 2 of the mods quit.. 1 was assasinated I think... and uh.. and that caused uh.. a substantial amount of problems with everything.. but im hopening that things start to return back to normal soon.. you- oh.. I forgot to turn the youtube chat on.. I hope you guys wasnt asking questions there cuz im only reading this thread.. I think that chats broken anyways.. yeah dont ask questions there.. i wont read all of that.. put it in the thread
How should we increase the userbase kuz?
Is that necessary.. isnt things already settled down? I mean, i think the site could grow and that would be good and stuff but uh.. things uh.. well the sites already pretty large isnt it? Well.. I do think we could reach a point where growth could start to be a negative.. you know.. some people expressed some worried about twitter people comin and trashin the place up but I dont think uh thats much of a problem and uh.. but uh.. I think.. I think what we've lost really is.. well.. we didnt lose much but if there was any place I think we should find people its /qa/.. or kwah.. i dont know how you guys say it.. i dont know how you say it, dont make fun of me, i always just say Q-A. I dont bother with those fancy pronunciations and such.. but I say thats where we should uh.. begin. You know /qa/ i guess most of them already migrated here but I think uh.. if we got all those characters back and put them on our /qa/ board.. might be good for the site but thats just my opinion. But you know.. im uh.. im.. im not doing anything on my own.. but i dont do stuff like that with the site. All my job is to keep the site free of things we dont want to see.. i dont actually involve myself in growing it or anything
What do you think about J?
laughs well I uh.. I dont have anything to say about J.. but well... well If i had to say one thing about J *laughs* is that.. he's lovely. Well I love talking to him, hes really a funny guy. I wont say anything about him, i wont interrupt his work. and yes his tripcode did get cracked recently.. but I wont say anything more about J.. he'll do what he needs to in his own time
In response to cheering and compliments
Thank you.. chuckles thank you very much..
IS POOP2 REAL? Poop2? Nah. I know that, I heard Soot was involved with something like that, but really, that could really be another fringe debunked alt-right conspiracy theory for all we know.
is ongezellig coal or gemmy?
'Zellig. Oh, 'Zellig's a gem. There's no argument about it, I know 'Zellig is a gem. I think we gotta make our own 'Zellig board. If you ask me, I'd make our own 'Zellig board. I don't ever, I don't get the hate. You know, 'Zellig is well made, and, is funny, and, there's some excellent 'Zellig 'jaks out there. I say we, we accept it. I say sharty culture, but you know I'm not the arbiter of that.
kuz is 'cado IAS
Uh 'Cado? 'Cado, he is, he is not a 'jak for sure, but he is sharty culture. Sharty Culture. He's not a jack, that's just a fact. He's not a 'jak, he doesn't fit any of the- he's not bald, he's not wearing glasses, he doesn't have stubble, and he doesn't open his mouth wide, so he's not a jak, but he gives a pass for sharty culture. And coin slotting newfags, that's just, newchuds, that's part of the experience here.
KUZ WHY DO YOU BAN DOT SPAMMER CHAD LMAO
Why did you ban dot. I haven't banned anyone here. Oh, that? I haven't banned anyone, I'm not doing anything. I gave all the janitors all the work. You gotta be following the rules. I don't want to be scrolling down and see something I don't want to see.
Kuz, if there is a sharty meetup would you come?
If there was a sharty meetup? I don't know. I don't think I'd, I don't think that's safe. There's some people out there that don't like me.
Kuz what is your favorite variant?
Okay guys, remember guys, this is supposed to be somewhat meta, so you need to be complaining too a little bit, and I'll help you with that. I'll talk about it. My favorite variant, is a hard one. You know this is gonna be controversial, but I, is got to be the 'son. It's got to be the 'son, I mean, Nojak compares to his little fame and influence. When the 'son walks on the stage, everyone shuts up, and they look at him. So, it might be the 'son, it might be wholesomejak, I don't really know. But again, these are just my personal opinions, it's not facts or anything.
KUUUUZ CHECK YOUR TWITTER DMS
Twitter DMs? Okay-
Why did you ban spadesons
Ban spadesons. You know, banning spadesons was a hard thing to do. Because, you know, it was a hard thing to do. I thought it was just getting out of hand, and once I started seeing actual, you know, real life stuff being put up there, it didn't feel like, it was just kinda gross. You know, we have /b/ for a reason, you can put it there. You know, Spadesons, though, they're a tough case. I'm still mourning over that, really.
0:43:46 Have you ever drew a gem? Can you draw?
Embarrassing confession, but I've only ever drawn a couple 'jaks in my whole life, and most of them are pretty coal, I'm not a good artist really. You know clearly I have some abilities, in the entertainment field, but drawing isn't one of them, you know I'm pretty bad at 'jaks in general. I just, when I try it, it looks erm... too crispy, for a 'jak. Does that make sense? It looks too crispy. I don't know what the right settings are, but I use PAINT.NET, so, maybe it's my fault idk.
Good morning, folks. Alright. I spilled it. How did I? I'll turn on chat. I'll turn on chat. It's still five minutes till, technically, but, you know. How's the quality? I'll turn on chat. I'll turn on chat. Alright, everybody. Oh, no, I guess. Okay. Well, things are still a little low, but... You know, viewers is a bit low because I... This is kind of a short notice thing. There was a plan about two hours ago. Alright, I'll start answering the questions now. I'll start from the beginning. Oh, shit. Oh, Mr. Pan. One of seven folks. Okay. Okay. Well, what's the point of this stream? It's because I... You know, I get a little tired when I'm typing out all the time. It's easier on my fingers if I just speak instead. Jimson. You know, I think Jimson's really just... He's such a controversial subject. Well, honey, I like to keep those things to myself, you know. Jimson, he's not the kind of thing someone like me should be talking about. Jimson, really... He's a classic. He's got to be... He's... You know, words can't describe him, really. But I've got to say that if I was going to put him on a scale, I'd give him a strong ten. And I do like Belarus, yeah. Suggest. The Suggest thing. It was... You know, I was just... I was a little strung out that night. It all came so fast. Suggest, really. I don't believe in metaphors in general. I think that we could have just put it all in one... One little place. We don't need... I don't feel like we need that. You know, a whole meta board. It just adds a bunch of trash, but... You know, I've relented. And I made a promise with everybody. I said, if you keep it on Suggest, I won't cause any problems for that. So if we keep it on Suggest, keep all the meta on Suggest, I won't delete it. I shouldn't have renamed it. Yeah, that was a bit embarrassing, but... You know, we've moved on from that, haven't we? Do I prefer based, keyed, egged, gem, might be... Keyed. I'm a big proponent of locked and keyed. It's always... It had a nice ring to it to me. Keyed. Someone wants to call me Keyed Kuz. That was lovely. Yes, I think we should advertise the party in real life. I think it's... Viral marketing. I don't know what that's called. Ban Raperson. No. Raperson, I think he's... He's a... He's a... He's a... He's a... He's a... He adds edge. You know what? That's what... That's what I think this site needs sometimes. Edge. If we water things down too much, it's not gonna be... It's not gonna have that suspense when you open the page. You never know what you're gonna see. It could be wholesome. It could be disgusting. And the Raperson is part of that balance that we need. I don't know nothing about... Vegeta or Goku. I haven't watched anime in a long time. And I never watched that stuff. That's beyond me. USSR. Well, same thing. That's something I would keep to myself. USSR. There's good parts about it and there's bad parts. But I think that... Overall, I did appreciate a lot of parts of it. Yeah. Hang on. USSR. Well... 50-50 maybe. I'm not a communist, far from it. But everybody has a certain nostalgia for it. What's your goal for running all these image boards? Well, just kind of for fun, really. I don't think you can get much fame out of it. Nothing more than I've already got. I don't actually run that many. I host them, but this is the only one I really run actively. Even then, I don't really do much about it with it. I don't fiddle with it that much either. It's kind of just... You know what? I always say it kind of like that. It's like owning rare art. You put it up on the wall and you look at it once in a while, but you don't come back to it. You know, I do come here quite a bit nowadays, but it's not something that's really an active part of my life anymore. Why am I nervous? Well, I haven't made a live appearance in... What? Probably... I don't know. Many years. Oh, am I too quiet? Oh, hang on. Am I too quiet? How do I turn this thing up? Am I just better? Am I just better? Iron and rust? That's my stuff. I made that. I pioneered that. And that stuff was tame compared to what you see today. But, you know, I don't really... I don't use iron and rust. I don't think I ever use it more than twice. Split move? And mu-v? How do you guys say that? I've considered it a few times. I think it'd look better if we had mu and v. I guess you could say mu-v. That's kind of dumb. Oh yeah, that reminds me of the Minecraft server. That was a mess. I ought to fix that sometime though. You know, my problem was that I think someone joined in and loaded like a million chunks and bricked my server. You know, that was expensive to fix. Cost me $300 and I haven't fixed it since. Remember that emergency I went on? That was it. $300 to repair that shit. Man, that was expensive. That was quite a bit of work too. Somehow... I don't even know what happened, but that was a mess. The shardy. I do call that. Well, yeah, I did call that on my OP post. I don't know what you're talking about. What do I think of these god-tier warjacks? I think they're all trash, that's what I think. No offense though. Someone put everything in these. I guess the my-my-jack is so bad, it's good actually. Why was P up for six hours? Well, that's because... Let me give you guys some truth. We only have... Well, at the time... At the time, that was the problem. We only had one mod and three generators. And two of them was inactive. And they all were in the same time zone. So we had about 60% of the day covered. So we had about 60% of the day covered. 40% uncovered. I recently hired some generators. I got a lot of good applications. Thank you everyone that applied. But basically, two of the old mods quit. One was assassinated, I think. And that caused a substantial amount of problems with everything. But I'm hoping that things start to return back to normal soon. Oh, wait, I forgot to turn off the camera. You... Oh, wait, I forgot to turn the livestream chat on. I hope you guys weren't asking questions there. Because I'm only reading this thread. I think the chat's broken anyways. Yeah, don't ask questions in the chat. I'm not reading all that. Put it on the thread. How should we increase the user base? Is that necessary? Anything's already sold down. I mean, I think the site could grow and that'd be good and stuff. But things is... I mean, the site's pretty large already, isn't it? And, well... I do think that we could reach a point where growth could start to be negative. But at the moment, I don't think we're close to that. You know, some people have expressed some worries about Twitter people coming in and trashing the place up. But I don't think that's much of a problem. But I think... I think what we've lost really is... Well, we didn't lose much. But if there was any place I think we should get new people, I think it'd be through QA. Or QA, I guess. I don't know how you guys say it. I don't know how you say it. Don't make fun of me. But I always just say QA. I don't bother with all the fancy pronunciations. But I say that's where we should... Where we'd begin. You know, QA... I guess most of them already migrated here. But I think if we got all those characters back, put them on our QA board, it might be good for the site. But that's just my opinion. And I'm not doing anything on my own to raise the site. I leave things the way they are. All my job is to keep the site free of stuff I don't like to see. You know, I don't actually involve myself in growing it or anything. What do I think about Jay? How do I... I have no comment. I don't have anything to say about Jay. Okay, well, you know, if I had to say one thing about Jay, I'd say is... He's lovely. I love talking to Jay. He's a really funny guy. But I won't say anything more about him. You know, I'm not going to end up at his work. And yes, his trip code did get cracked pretty recently. But I'm not going to say anything more about Jay. He'll do what he needs to in his own time. Thank you. Thank you. Poop 2? No. I know that her suit was involved or something like that. But really, that could just be another fringe. Debunked. All right. Conspiracy theory for all we know. Zellig. Oh, Zellig's a gem. There's no argument about it. Zellig is a gem. I think we ought to make our own Zellig board. If you asked me, I'd make our own Zellig board. I don't ever... I don't get the hate. You know, Zellig is well made. And it's funny. And there's some excellent Zellig jacks out there. I say we ought to accept it. I say it's sordid culture. But you know, I'm not the arbiter of that. Oh, wow, wow. I'm really hard behind. Kado. Kado, he is not a jack, that's for sure. But he is sordid culture. Sordid culture. He's not a jack. That's just a fact. He's not a jack. He doesn't fit any of that. He's not bald. He doesn't wear glasses. He doesn't have stubble. He doesn't open his mouth wide. So he's not a jack. But he is a... He gives a pass because he's sordid culture. And coins starting new fags. That's just... That's new chuds. That's just part of the experience here. Why did you ban the... I haven't banned anyone here. Oh. Oh, are there? No, I haven't banned anyone this set. I'm not doing anything. I gave all the janitors the work for that. You better be following the rules. You better be following the rules. I don't want to scroll down and see something I don't want to see. If there was a sort of meetup? I don't know. I don't think I... I don't think that's safe. There's some people out there that don't like me. Favorite variant. Okay, guys. Remember, this is supposed to be somewhat meta. So you need to be complaining too a little bit. And I'll help you with that. We can talk about it. But my favorite variant... That's a hard one. You know, this is going to be controversial, but I... It's got to be The Sun. It's got to be The Sun. I mean, no Jack compares to his level of fame and influence. When The Sun walks on the stage, everyone shuts up and they look at him. So it might be The Sun. It might be Wholesome Jack. I don't really know. But again, these are just my personal opinions. It's not going to affect anything. Twitter DMs. Banned Spacesomes. You know, banning Spacesomes was a hard thing to do. Because, you know, it was a hard thing to do. I thought it was just getting out of hand. And once I started seeing actual, you know, real life stuff being put up there, it didn't feel like it, you know... It didn't... It was just kind of gross. You know, we have B for a reason. You can put it there. Spacesomes though, they're a tough case. I'm still mulling over that, really. You know what? Have I ever drew a Jim? Embarrassing confession, but I've only drawn a couple of Jacks in my whole life. And most of them are pretty cold. I'm not a good artist, really. You know, I have some, clearly I have some abilities in the entertainment field. But drawing isn't one of them. You know, I'm pretty bad at Jacks in general. You know, I just... When I try it, it looks too crispy for Jack. Does that make sense? It looks too crispy. I don't know what the right settings are, but I use Paint.net. So, maybe that's my fault. I don't know. Text formatting thing. Is there supposed to be a difference between those two pictures? Because I don't see any. My music tastes... Maybe. Yeah, it is WebM. Well, I mean, yeah, the board is a little useless. But I don't see the point in moving it. It's not hurting anyone, is it? Status of the archive. Well, the archive, that's something I want to talk about for a bit. What was that? Hello, dog. Okay, archive. That's something I want to talk about. You know, the Italian guy. He was a bit of a loose can, but basically I found him again. Actually, he found me. And he's like, you need to fire Subba, or I'm not coming back. I said, I'm not going to be held ransom. You come back, I'll forgive you, and you can work on it, or we can go away. And he thought about it for a bit, but he relented, and now he's working on the archive with me. I won't say a specific release date, but I'd like to be able to release it sometime. This month, maybe. Maybe, you know, before September. 6 August. There's more songs, right? Yeah, okay. Before August, yeah. And well, we're going to release it in a beta, really. And it won't have all the features, but we're going to release it in a beta so the archive can start right away. And we can get to that. We can start upgrading as time goes on. And you know, really, I'm always looking for PHP developers, so if you're interested in helping, just let me know. I'll find you. How can I donate to keep the site going? Well, you know, I'm not in the position to take donations, really. Not at this point anymore. I've been doing what I've been doing for a while. I'm not strapped for cash much, but you know, I was kind of thinking... I was kind of thinking about... You know, I have never done anything like this, but you know, something with the plushies, those wholesome Jack plushies. I was trying to... Well, first I tried to see if I could get my wife to knit some and sell them or something like that, but it's hard to scale up that way. But I'm still looking at it. So maybe a way of donation could just be to buy one of the Jack plushies. Hold on one second. Alright, I'm back. Sobot? Real woman? I think they're non-binary. And I would prefer if you didn't mispronounce them. I'm just kidding. You know what? I think Sobot's a normal person. They're a lovely person, really. I've had good experience with them. They're not anything weird. Sojak wiki? Oh yeah, Angelino. Angelino, he's good. I like what Angelino's been doing with the wiki. I think that we've had an awful problem with people vandalizing that thing for years. How long has it been? A year? Well, I think that it's in good hands, Charlie. And I think my article specifically... Well, I mean, what can I say? I'll keep my opinions about that to myself. I know conflicts of interest here. Am I still too small? Am I still too quiet? A cop in a VTuber channel? That reminds me, I was gonna... You know what? This isn't really related to the shardy whatsoever. But I've actually been planning to do a shardy... I mean, a Kolyma VTuber kind of thing. I believe that that's something I've always been good at. Mass promotion. And if I could get my hands on some VTubers... I've even considered... Well, I won't say that. But I've considered a lot of people. And I believe it's one of my skillsets. And I could make some fair money off it. You know, if I ever... If it was cheap, maybe I'd even make a SoyJack VTuber. But, you know, I don't know. Angelina? I already answered that, never mind. Disable emails? Why would I do that? They're such a lovely thing to have. It shows everyone you say it's a threat. That's how you publicly say, this thread sucks. That was a good idea. I don't think... I don't think I should take them off. The buttons? You know, I didn't understand why everyone disliked the buttons. I thought they were pretty. You know, I thought they were pretty. But, you know, I removed them after a while. Not because of widespread dislike. Just because, for some reason... That's all people use. Like monkeys, when you give them a banana, they do nothing. But sell them that banana all day. That's how it felt like. It felt like giving a monkey a computer. All they're doing is press the same few buttons over and over again. We didn't have a good thread for hours. So I removed the buttons so people would stop pressing them. But, you know, I was thinking about maybe adding them back. Just a jam and a cold button. But still, it's kind of pointless. You know, it's just a gimmick. I was just asking somehow, you know. My opinion on jackbox rates? Jackbox? You know, honey, I wouldn't say anything about that in public. Because there are some people who would be pretty mad at me. So I just keep that to myself. But Pixel Planet, I say that it's a disaster. It's what happened to it. It's been abandoned. And it seems like no one's really keeping that shit up anymore. I say we should make a return to Pixel Planet. You know, keep that stuff up again. Yeah, maybe it wasn't so hard. But I don't know how, I don't know much about knitting or sewing or whatever. So I don't know how quality it'd be. And you know, he didn't ban Edward. You know, Edward's a good friend of mine. Mr. Foltz. We don't talk about him though. We don't talk about that. Oh, Edward the user. Ah, what an embarrassment. You know what? He deserved it. That's what I have to say. What is my honest opinion on trainees and Discord? Well, you know, I think people should just keep themselves. The trainees, I've met a few good ones. But overall, I feel sorry for them. Really, I do. I feel sorry for them. It's sad. And I wish I could do something to help them. Because it's such a sad thing that I have to go through every day. You know, waking up and feeling lost or stuck. I wish I could help them. Really, I did. But you know, many of them are combative. So I have never tried. And Discord. I understand the hate about Discord. But I use it anyways. Yeah, I did it. You know, I opened up something like that recently. But Discord, it's just a communication platform. It has a bad rep because there's a lot of bad people on there. But it is ultimately just a platform for communication. So if you feel good with people, you're going to get a good server. That being said, there's no plans for a Soyjack.Party Discord server. That's not something I'm interested in. I don't think it'd be good for anyone. No rules experiment. Well, you know, people were saying I was being censoring and stuff. People were saying that I was, you know, harsh and stuff like that. But I was getting sick of it. They were saying I was, you know, I said I was an erratic. Erratic, really. So I was just, you know, I thought we should just let them have a taste of the opposite. You know, no one liked it. Well, some people liked it. But, you know, ultimately, I feel like we struck a good balance. I held a Q&A thread and I talked to people. We found a good balance between no rules and too many rules. Now I think everyone's happy. Am I wrong? Everyone happy? I think, you know, I'm willing to tweak them some. The Minecraft server. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I guess. I guess it might be back up. No promises at all. Two more weeks. Two more weeks. You know, do I see any way QA comes back? No, I don't. I don't think that would be in our best interest, all things considered. You know, QA comes back. I'd say a substantial portion of the site migrates back there. The site could either go through a new golden age or it could go through a dark age. I don't know what would happen. But, you know, when something's broken, don't fix it. When something isn't broken, don't fix it. That's what I'm saying. If something isn't broken, don't fix it. QA, being dead is fine. It's good for us. That's how I see it. But to answer your question more exactly, no, I don't want to think that's going to happen. I have, well, never mind. I can't say that. But I've been informed, you could say, that it's not going to come back. It's permanent. So I won't reveal my sources, though. You know, a Soy Jack mug, that'd be something that's more plausible. I could probably pull that off, couldn't I? What is that? 1.19. You know what? The only reason I play Minecraft today is because those caves. Didn't they add something like that? It made the caves better. Have I ever drink spoke? Listen to me. Listen right here. You might not believe this, but I never had any soda whatsoever. I have never put my lips on a Coca-Cola bottle or a Sprite bottle or Pepsi or anything like that. You don't believe me? That's fine. But I swear to you, I never did. Never in my life. Trust me. Soy Jack mug. Yeah, I'd say it depends. When it comes to selling merch. Well... For the shorty. Will people buy it? That's the question I have. Will people buy it? Played TF2 before? I've played a little bit. My actual political views? No. That's not the place for this. Not time and place. You know what? It's always worked out. As long as you don't let anyone crazy get in power. We haven't been doing a good job at letting that happen. You will be happy about the rules. Because I made them. How could you not be happy about the rules? What do you have to complain about? I don't know. I don't know. I don't know. I don't know. November 3rd. I guess I should plan something for that. You know, I had a few April Fool's ideas in my head. I was thinking about some... I don't want to spoil them though. How long have I been jacking? I don't know. I don't know. I don't know. I don't know. I don't know. How long have I been jacking? Well, it depends on what you mean. The first time I ever posted a soy jack is probably 2018. The first time I ever really jacked someone. That sounds weird. First time I ever soy coated someone. Probably late 2019. And then 2020. I got into the whole thing as a whole. It started off with me. I'd log in on the 4cuck IRC server. And I'd quote with ASCII jacks. I'd quote them out of there. I could get in a few before I got banned. But that's how it started off. Back in October 2020. That's when I first started. And I've been doing it on and off since then. Your jacks? Well, they can be gems and they can be cool. Just like cobson. Do I still talk to Soot? I haven't talked to Soot in a long time. Soot, he's going through some rough things right now. For his privacy, I won't be saying a thing about it. But he's very busy. I think his life's on the upturn in general. But he's had a rough especially week. Luckily, I think he'll be able to have a nice life with all that money I gave him. I mean, surely. What was his name? I forgot the number. It's actually been quite a bit and I've been busy. But hopefully he spent it on something worthwhile. Yeah, some people say that. Maybe one day I'll touch my lips with some soda. But I don't see the point now. What if I get addicted? I'll be fat. I've always been known for my physique. Yeah, no, I don't love transgenders at all. Just like I don't love a schizophrenic man. I pity them. You could say that. That's not a Freudian slip. That's just a... That's just a play on words, you see. Oh, fuck, I accidentally... No, no, no, no. I accidentally clicked on the wrong thing. Is that the real dancer? Come on, Janice, get in here. That looks bad. Don't trust it. Janice, come on. Get in here. I see something I shouldn't. Good Jenny. Good Jenny. Okay, anyways. Yes, I'm away from Russia. But I'm thinking about leaving where I am now. I'd like to live in Cyprus. Anyone ever heard of Cyprus? North Cyprus. And you know, it's an unfortunate coincidence that Goth happens to live there. But I was planning to move there long before he was. So, you know, fun there. I see him in the street. I'll let him know what you guys think. You know. Hopefully he doesn't mind the broken nose. I don't think I'm going to be alive in 50 years. Well, it looks like I've answered quite a few. What time is it? Oh, it's only 9.30? This has only been going on for 30 minutes? Jesus. Okay. I don't speak Greek, no. I speak a little Turkish. Yeah, I do. I do speak a little. My best friend is Turkish. Lee Bate. You know what? I miss Lee. I miss Lee really bad. He was a source of a lot of fun. A lot of laughs. Lee... I don't even know if Lee's real, to be honest. I don't know much about it. But I don't really think he's real. Political threads on soy? I think they ought to be moved. That's what I think. Well, you know what? It's a difficult line to cross. Because politics is what people want to talk about all day. You know, if it's just blatantly, completely unrelated to everything, I say move it to Paul. But if it has a jack somewhere in the OP, or if it's just, you know, if it's tangentially related to shardic culture whatsoever, I still let it stay. I try not to move stuff around too much, but sometimes it's just so bad you have to. You don't have any choice. Bad. No, of course not. I'm a humble boy. Let's see. No, I'm not autistic. I mean, I say you gotta be a little messed up in the head to run this site, but no, I don't think I'm autistic. Do I sound autistic? I heard you can tell people's voices sometimes, but I don't really think that's the case here. Let's see. How many people are on right now? What is this? Oh, 30? That was pretty good, actually. You know, I think this should have been... I think that the stream was a little unplanned. You know, I just figured out this thing like four or five hours ago, but if I had, you know... Maybe next time. You know, if I ever did this again. Next time I'd probably give it like two days of pre-warning, and I wouldn't do it at nine o'clock. Nine o'clock is kind of late, but I didn't want those noises outside. What was that called? Cicadas. Yeah. It was out earlier and it was getting pretty annoying, so I just postponed it nine o'clock so you guys wouldn't get annoyed pretty loud. But, you know, I would like some Europeans in here asking me some questions. Let's see. Side tube movie nights. I've never been in one of those. I don't watch movies much. I haven't been in cinema in a while. I don't have the patience to sit down like that. Not anymore. My tension span is still a little low. I'm working on it though. Weird that I just don't think there's any movies worth watching. The last movie I watched was... Um... I don't even remember the last one I watched. It's been a while though. Don't buy any altcoins. Listen here. Don't buy any. None of them is worth your time. If you're going to buy anything, buy bitcoin, I guess. I wouldn't recommend that. It's too volatile. Buy it. I mean, it depends on what you're trying to do. If you're just trying to gamble, go ahead. Buy an altcoin. If you want investment, buy bitcoin. If you just want to store your money, buy... I don't know. Gold or something. But don't take financial advice from me. I didn't get here because I was smart. It was just dumb luck. Oh, my scroll wheel is loud. Damn it. I thought I pulled out my old stuff, so I was hoping it was quiet. You know, maybe I need to try moving this thing. You know, I'm not used to this big-ass microphone right in my face. Last time I was doing something live, they put something on my shirt. This little clip on my shirt. I didn't have to speak into a microphone. Didn't have to hold anything up. You know, I recently just got back from the gym. I had an intensive workout, and my arms are so sore I couldn't even reach my cup this morning out of the cupboard. I'm still in pain. I had to get in the daily to come reach stuff for me. Heh. Piracy? Well, if you're pirating from other people, that's good, but don't pirate my stuff. Yeah, well, as much as I think it's a gym, I've never watched a single second of Zellig in my life. I've never turned that shit on. Excuse my language. I never turn it on. Just because, really, is it in English or what? I don't know Dutch. Not much. No, I can't code whatsoever. I tried to a long time ago. I tried to get into it, but I couldn't manage with that. And really, I've just, I've been better at management. You know, coding's just not my thing. But speaking of coding, if you're a PHP developer, let me know and I'll hook you up with something good. You can make thousands. I'll give you a kiss on the forehead. Sure. There you go. Suit? How tall is he? You know, the NSS hasn't really had a chance much to talk about suit. The NSS hasn't had much of a chance to, you know, to get on to suit and such. But I think he's, you know, and I don't know if he's okay with me revealing this, but he's, I think, just over 5'10", approaching 5'11". He didn't look that big, is what I'm saying. But I was able to measure it, they were able to measure it, and I say he's not 6' quite yet, but he's growing. TND? Well, TND. You know, I have several black friends. You know, my best friend, he's brown. But I've never let my personal stuff interfere with what I allow on the site, so I say go for it. Go ahead. Do you like cats? Yeah. I have a cat. I wonder if she's in here. You in here. I would call her name, but here's the little thing. My cat's names, those are state secrets. I'm not even joking. I can't reveal that stuff. You know why? It's because I use them in my passwords. If I told the public what my cat's name was, I'd be putting myself in it. A serious security risk. So, I haven't That's private information. And I can't call her right now, but I do have a cat. Yeah. It's cool you jacked up data mining. Yeah, that's real. You're on it right now. This site, you know, I was thinking about petitioning the What's that thing called? What's it called? Like the Internet Association or something. Making a gemjack.jimmy I wasn't even joking about that. It costs $4,000 to make a new domain. I'm not wasting money on that stuff. I guess we're stuck with party. SoyFag.party is not going to become a real thing. Not in the foreseeable future. If we can crowdfund $4,000, I promise you, I will make gemjack.jimmy a real site. Or whatever else. We can have a vote on it. So it's not a manlet. No, it's not. He's a growing boy. Wait, hang on. Don't tell me you think 5 foot 10 is small. No, I know. Don't tell me you think it's small. That's not the manlet, is it? Shit. All right, anyways. All right, anyways. What is this? Vape? What is this? 5 foot 10, that can't be a manlet. No, that can't be a manlet. I'm doomed. I mean, no, no. My height is a secret too, though. Seriously. Countries I visit. Let me think about that. I'm going to miss Russia. Obviously. Ukraine. Belarus. Poland. Several times. UK. That's 5. USA. Turkey. Cyprus. China. There's more. Bulgaria. I went there for a vacation once. Summer's there. It's real nice. That's 10 so far. Let's see. Kazakhstan, of course. I've been there a few times. There's probably a few more. I'd say that's a good start. You know, I'm a traveling man, I guess. I'd like to travel some more. Whenever time permits. You know, taking care of everything is a full-time job here. Oh. Man, what the hell is that? Poland? I like Poland. You know, a lot of bad things come out of that place. A lot of them has affected me, personally. Poland, it's a mixed bag, I guess. How has this only been going on for 42 minutes? Jesus. You guys, ask me some questions about the site. You know? Because that was the point of this thing. I've got some lovely questions, but I'm not here every day. So if you're here, you can ask some questions about the site. And I'll try to... We can talk it out. That's what the whole thing was about. By the way, is this straight? No. By the way, is this stream quality good? You know, this microphone, I don't know about it. It looks a little funny. It's a bit phallic, if I may say so myself. I'm kind of uncomfortable having my mouth this close to it. So I'm hoping that this uncomfortable experience is worth it for everyone else here. Oh, I... You can go down a rabbit hole over there. Hahaha. I'd like to visit Ireland. Uh, Ukraine? Ukraine's a lovely place. I met a girl there once. That's all the only good thing I have to say about it, really. I mean, it's kind of like Russia, but poor and smellier. And that's all I have to say about that, really. Oh, the Jennys. They got a new band system, courtesy of me. And basically, now it looks like the cuck. So let me show you a picture, if I can. Well, never mind, that's a bunch of work. Basically, now there are these buttons on the band page, and instead of having to type out the band reason, they get to press a button. And that button will put in the rule. And it makes it more professional. I've never been a fan of those silly, personified sarcastic, sassy bands that alt-chan people are used to giving out. I think it's unprofessional, and I think it's rude, frankly. Well, I think this thing is better. Now, of course, they can still add a specified band reason if they want to, but I've told them not to, unless it's important. I hope you guys approve that change. I think it's, really, I think it's an improvement. Hash filter, I'd like to put that in. Maybe before the end of the month. Orange texting? Yeah, I could add that. I mean, maybe. You know, orange texting, that's controversial, because where I'm from, that's called pink texting. That's called pink texting, yeah. It's pink. And pink's one of my favorite colors, really. I just like pink. But, you know, maybe I could add pink and orange text, I don't know. It depends on what happens. On the current amount of Janie's amounts? Well, I got some, well, hang on, let's see, there's a couple, and there's a few more on the way. I got some really good applications on my recent run. And if you applied and still haven't heard back from me yet, make sure you check your spam folder and if that didn't work still, you need to come on the IRC and I can talk to you. And we can set it up that way. No, I'm not, I'm not really that, I wouldn't say I'm a nationalist, no. You know, Russia, I gave them, it's a very one-sided thing, really. I gave them a lot and I never got very much back out of it. I paid taxes for years and years, but never so much as a drop of money back for all that I contributed to that country. And then they had the balls to mess with me the way they did. So, I'm not really a nationalist. I do love Russia, though. I love, you know, the people. And, well, of course I love Moscow. Well, yeah. But I wouldn't say I'm a nationalist, no. New boards? What do you guys think about the boards, really? I tried to shut some of them down when I first came into power, but that was a little unpopular, but I don't know really what the public thinks about all that. I added G. You know, Sobot didn't tell me to add G. I added that because I wanted to. I added that on my own accord. And X was dead. There was no point in it. In fact, all it served was to get some spam. So I think G's good. You know, I think that there's a lot of smart people here. Technologicals, technologists, whatever you call them. And I think G, you know, once people get over the shock of it and stop shitposting there, excuse me, then maybe you can have some good use. You know what I thought would be good is a desktop thread? I think we could get some real gems out of there. I've always been curious what kind of desktops you guys have. A desktop really says a lot about a person, in my opinion. It says a lot about a person. Kimura? You know, Azumanga I watched that 10 years ago. 15 years ago, maybe. It was been a long time. You know, I watched it just a few years after it came out originally. And well, it's not my thing. Well, I think the characters are pretty in such, but I don't get slice of life anime, really. I don't get how someone sits down and watches that. But really, it's just a matter of being bored out of my mind. I mean, it's just some girl's school life. I don't see where the suspense is. There's no interest, there's no building. Everything kind of feels the same to me, so I never got a slice of life. I never got an anime in general, really. I haven't watched it in a long time. Shadowbands? Hell, that would be useful, wouldn't it? I could just send you off my back. I got 30 applicants for the Janitor positions, and I accepted a few of those. Emotes? You know, all of my other board sites, this site, they have emotes. They have emotes, yeah. Yeah, I do enjoy talking to the SWAT team. It's been nice talking. Lovely, everybody. It was very lovely today. There's less trash here than I expected, really. Art? You know, I promised Art a little while ago. I should deliver on that, but it's been a while. Art. You know, I want to show you guys something, but I can't because I know something is going to go mess it up. There's a software I've been thinking about putting up on here for the art board. It's not just another board, you know? It'd be its own software. Let me show you. Let me show you a screenshot. I'll see if I can put it up on stream. And I'm not going to show you where this is from because I know you guys are going to go trash it up, so just wait a second. Yeah, that's good right here. Let me just add this on here and see what happens. Oh, man. Add image. So, you guys, go ahead and check the stream. I'm going to add an image so you guys can see what I'm talking about. This is the board I was considering. See that? This is the board I was considering. See this right here? Let me expand it for everybody. See that? This is called a Podi board, I think. Podi Okake, something like that. And it's well, it works pretty well. And it lets you draw some pretty fantastic stuff. I've seen it. And that's what I was considering for the art board, but maybe I won't. Maybe I won't just add it like that. I can make a normal board. You guys tell me what you think here. Toad posters. They're annoying, really. They kind of get on my skin sometimes. I gave them leniency and they take it too far. But if you behave, I'll let you run as you were. Really, I just think people have been taking things too seriously here. What? Oh yeah. There was a desktop thread. But that thing was on Soi. And it was nothing about desktops. And I think someone posted some CP in it too. Comprehensive playpen. You know what? I'm going to be honest. I don't think that's real. I don't really think it happened. I think it's forced. I don't really think the playpen happened. I don't know about it. I know how to do HTML and CSS. The actual code that makes stuff turn around in circles. I don't know much about that. I haven't done that myself. I'm going to take the image off now. I think you guys get the point. Shit, I removed the wrong image. Damn it. Don't worry. I got this figured out. Anyways, I have not much of a program on my side. Yeah, there we go. This thing's back now. Yeah, we're in Europe because that's off-street. Everyone's welcome to come around. I didn't make G to make people work for me. I promise. I think Bant's a bad board. It's full of bad people. No, there's nothing wrong. The servers are hosted in Russia. That's because I have stuff in Russia. There's no worry about stuff being shut down. Not that I know of. I've never had problems like that in the past. The site's pretty tame, really. Compared to some other stuff I've dealt with. I don't think that's a worry. It's never happened in the past. I don't see why it's going to happen now. It hasn't happened in a while, at least. My favorite food? My favorite food is saffron risotto. Ever heard of that? You can go look it up on Google. Saffron risotto. It was lovely. My wife made it for me exactly two months ago. That was on my birthday. It was really good. It's a bit of work, though. I'd say a second of that is banana pudding. Those are my two favorites. Favorite website? Well, I think that's hard to say, really. I've had a lot of good ones over the years. I don't think I could just pick one and say it's my best. It's like you're asking me to say which child I like the most. Cloudflare. I never said I'd take off Cloudflare, you hear me? I never said that. I said I'd take off the protection. The checks that Supe had on. Those were annoying. I did do that. I only turned it on during DDoS attacks. I never said I'd take off Cloudflare entirely. Because if we do that, the site's going to give them down every day. Well, as for Bant, I just think that it's like you took every worst part of QA and every worst part of Reddit. R slash 4cuck. You put it all in one. Really, it's just a place where mentally ill people gather. I don't use 4cuck, really. I think the place is just too far gone. There's a lot of mentally ill people there. I don't really like them that much. Oh, hang on one second. Yes, thank you. Thank you, honey. Alright, thank you. Well, I have some cookies now. I have some cookies, but I'm not going to eat them. Not yet. It's rude to eat in the stream. I mean, rude to eat in front of people. These are some soft cookies. It looks like I need to let them cool a bit. Anyways. Yes. Banana pudding. Kuzbanana. That's a gem. Oh, Kuznachik. That's a gem too. That's a gem right there. I'm sick of that. The biggest threat to the shorty? I'd say... Well, what do you guys think? What do you guys think is the biggest threat? I'd say it's... Well, it depends on what you mean. To the sites, you know, itself. The physical servers. I'd say the biggest threat is attacks. DDoS attacks. But, you know, if you mean more metaphorically. I'd say... Really, I'd say politics. You know, I don't want the site to become just another battleground between the left and the right. You know, Soyjack posters really, I think, have always been kind of in the middle. You know, not even in the middle, but outside of it. Like, you're not on the left or the right usually. You're on the outside of the whole thing. And you're making fun of both. Quoting them. When they seize, you quote them. And that's what I feel about it. It seems lately there's been, you know, a lot of people coming in here. Well, you know, they've been... They've been seriously arguing about politics. I might start making that a bigger thing. You know, I might start... Moving some of the worst stuff to poll. But, you know, they're welcome here. But ultimately, the site's not about that stuff. That's just what I think, really. That's not a promise or anything. Kiwi Farms. Well, you know what I have to say about Kiwi Farms? I have nothing good to say about them. I think they're a bunch of no good pieces of trash. And they're all hateful and rude. And you know, Moon... I think he's a... I think he's just, you know... Well, he's just a bunch of trash. And he's a bunch of trash. And he's a bunch of trash. And he's a bunch of trash. And he's a bunch of trash. And he's just, you know... Well, he's just a bad person. You know, and I... I shouldn't be getting into that now, but... I shouldn't be getting into that now, but... Really, I have never had a good experience with them. But, you know... I know how to deal with them. The reason that these cows exist is because they keep giving them attention day after day. You know, I've been doing this stuff for a while. I know how to keep trolls at bay. I know how to keep trolls at bay. They want attention. They want a mentally ill person's attention. They're just going to keep coming back day after day. But if you just ignore them, silence them, kick them out, they'll eventually stop. I've gotten many, many schizos to get out of here. I've gotten many, many schizos to get out of here. By giving them a silent treatment, effectively. And if keffolds or whoever that guy is... And if keffolds or whoever that guy is... If he would just leave them alone, If he would just leave them alone, stop talking about them, they'd go away. But, you know, internet drama is fun. But I don't like to involve myself in it. I keep myself out of drama. I keep my name out of stuff. I don't want to be anything like Moon or... I don't want to be anything like Moon or... I don't want to be anything like Moon or... What's his name? Watkins. I don't like how involved they are. I like to just keep things at bay. I like to let the sites run on their own. I don't like to take sides in things. I just let things go on. I'm not a troll, really. I've never been into that stuff. Not for a while. Not since I was a teenager, at least. I could change off CloudFlare. I could go to DDoS Card. But they're pretty expensive. I don't see the problem with CloudFlare, really. There's nothing... I mean, you're not putting your credit card details in here, are there? I mean, there's no point... There's no point in turning off CloudFlare. It's just going to be a negative. It doesn't data mine you anything. Because you're not putting any data in here, are you? Tuxeler. I never used it before. I never used it before. So what? So what? I don't get the whole... I don't get the fanfare about them. I don't get the whole... I don't get the fanfare about them. Because, you know... Because, you know... Really, it's just... So what? It doesn't really have much of an influence on anything. It doesn't really have much of an influence on anything. And, you know... There's nothing... No, it's just... It's just dumb, really, the whole thing. But we made a board for you people. You can go over there, can't you? I already said my favorite I already said my favorite Soy Jack variant was... I already said my favorite Soy Jack variant was... a tie between the Sun and Holston Jack. Average age of the user to the site. Average age of the user to the site. No more than 20, I'd say. Yes, I do go to the gym. Yes, I do go to the gym. I went to the gym once today. I went there on Monday. And I worked out so hard and my arms are still sore, I said that. And... Yeah, I'm still very sore about that. I need to rest for two days and go back. I'm a little thin. But I'd like to walk up a bit. Do I have any memories from USR? No. What I was like, three? I was like three, that thing went away. Programs, I don't do any... I'm not regimented or anything. I never believed in trainers and such. I just go over there and I start lifting heavy stuff and moving around. Before I know it, I'm sore and sweaty and I head back home. Next morning, I feel better. After that, I got a little bigger. That's all there is to it, really. People make too much of a big deal out of it. Early 2022. Well, I mean... I guess you got me a little there. That was just... It was just... What is it called? Entertainment. There was a lot of trolling. There for the people, the people there for me. Rule 10 and 9. Let me see what those are. I forgot the rules. Let me see what's 10 and 9. No, I like both of those rules. You was a B-sick. Why the hell are you here? Get the hell out of here. You've been annoying. You come back and apologize. Maybe I'll feel better. Oh, that's a nice setup right there. That's a nice setup. How many people are watching the stream right now? I can't really check. My computer's pretty laggy right now. Hey, looks like you have the same microphone as me a little bit. Except mine has a cover on it. And I don't have that faggy... What is that thing? LSD? RGB? Oh, it's good night. Yeah, people of all ages are on the site. There's no limit here. I don't see the point of instituting some arbitrary rule about age. I can't enforce it. Okay. Okay. Okay. Okay. Well, folks, you guys have any more questions? Okay. There was something I was going to bring up. Oh. Oh, yeah. I was thinking about... Hey, how many people are on here? What is it? 27? That's kind of low. I say we could get into the low hundreds. If I had planned this better. You know, we've got to get the Europeans and plan a better time. I might do this again on Christmas. A Christmas state-of-the-art address. That'd be wonderful. Maybe I'll sing a song there. Religious? Yeah. Yes, I'd say so, yeah. You know, MLP and FUR, those was never boards. But you know what was KR and Holo? Those was boards. I should have those back. I heard that the site died the day Suit took those off and there's never a cover since. So maybe I had them back. What do you guys think? No, I wouldn't give it back to Suit. But if Suit came up to me and he wanted to work on the site, he wanted to be a moderator, I'd say yes. Did you guys know Lowlkick? He was a moderator. He came up here for a bit. Lowlkick? Yeah, he came up to me and apologized. Well, basically, he said he regretted some of what he did. It was immature. There was a lot of confusion. I forgave him and I said, well, if you do this, as I said, and just enforce the rules, then I'll let you back on. And he said, alright. He worked with me for a bit. There was a couple other Suit-era janitors that I hired back. Because we need some experience, trusted people. And all of them did well. You know, it wasn't the people that was wrong. It was the mismanagement. It was Suit wasn't watching them very well. A thread watcher. That'd be nice, yeah. I'll consider it. Suit. Come on, Suit. Well, what do you guys think about you know, I've always been a fan of techsports. I was thinking about adding one of those. You know, maybe one or two. Serve some purpose. Well, the thing is, you can't play Jack very well on a techsport. We could do ASCII Jacks and the like. I don't know. It was a dumb idea. You know, I've always liked techsports. If I could put my Go software on a high usage site, like The Party, it'd be pleasurable. How'd you know I was going to buy that? I mean, it's not like I had that plan or anything. I was considering. You know, Jim, I think he's a fool, really. He's quite dumb. He's mismanaged a lot of stuff. Well, Jim, I think he's just a bad admin all around. Apparently, he loses $10,000 a month on Ekran. So I would have considered buying it up and fixing it up. You know, I did that before with a site called GuruChan. It used to be in the trash, but I fixed it up, I bought it, and I got some good mods on it. Really, the site just turned around in just a few months. And I really feel like I could do the same thing with Ekran if I had my hands on it. But I don't really think he's interested in selling. But if you want to ask on my behalf, if he's open, I'll consider it. Yeltsin Yeltsin Well, I think that I think he didn't do his job very well. But I don't know I don't think it's wise for me to disrespect him. You know, is he even alive anymore or what? Yeltsin Oh, 5channel. You know, I'd definitely buy a 5channel if I could. 5channel is a lovely website, I'd buy it. By the way, I would. Well, folks, it's getting a little late. You know, really, I I did this because I thought there were some things we needed to discuss. Some, you know, private things. You know, meta things. Well, well, it looks like there really wasn't that much. Hmm. I don't know what 12channel is. Isn't that a 700? Whoa, I didn't realize the step was that big. 800 players, almost. Sobot, yeah, Sobot's a lovely mod. It's been doing good work for me. I don't really like to have them public. I don't really like to have them public. I don't really like to have them public. I don't really like to have them public. But, you know, a lot of, I'd say about 95% of the bans and deletions that are attributed to him are not from him at all. Some of them are from me. If I bought 5channel, I'd turn that thing around and make it good again. That's what I say about it. And 8kun's community I'd put a tamper on some of it, but you know, that's the whole thing about it. It's really just about politics. I'd buy it for the money, really. And turn it around. But at its current state, no. It's a bit trashy. It just needs to have a nice I think it needs a makeover, really. And I've done that a few times. And I'll answer 15 maybe 15 more questions or so. So you guys better put some good ones in. I'm only answering good questions. It's getting late. One last question. What are you going to do? I don't really think that's a problem. Really, I don't think that's happening. It seems to be exaggerating to me. I don't really think anyone's hiding anything anywhere. But if they are, you report it. And show some proof. And I'm sure we'll get to it. That's actually happening. No, I don't know any Japanese. I don't I don't know Turkish very much well. Well, I know a little bit. But I don't have enough to run a Turkish site. But I want to anyways. I think that Well, that's actually confidential. But there may be a new Turkish site coming out soon. I don't know. Well. Anyways. Let's see. Buying 4cuck? I never buy 4cuck. I think it's stupid. Well, I'll never say never. But I don't really think that's something I'm interested in. People who mention shitcore friends every 10 seconds. I think they're annoying as hell. People way overplay how big sobot is. As part of the team. It's a bit annoying really. Making new boards? I don't know. I don't know what you guys think about the new boards. Yeah, I don't know. I don't know if that's something people want or not. I wouldn't know what that would be like. Yeah, okay. I know like yes or no. That's it. Oh, I'd buy crystal that cafe. I'd buy that the cafe. I'd buy it for sure. You know, well, just to keep the rules just I'd probably just adopt a some female colleagues and I don't know, maybe it'd be good. Women are an untapped resource as far as users go in image boards. The problem now is that I think every user of the cafe is seriously mentally ill. But you can say that for most image boards. Oh, yeah, short of UI. I've been considering doing a whole rework of the HTML CSS thing. Well, I think that it could do with an overdue, but we'll see about that. I'd like to redo the mobile view and I'd like to fix some visual bugs here and there. And make everything look a little nicer. But I don't know. Any advice for starting an image board? I have one piece of advice. I have one piece of advice for starting an image board. Don't. There's too many of them. Don't do it. But if you do, when it gets successful and it starts getting big, you know where to find me. Okay, five more questions or so. Okay, five more questions or so. Okay, five more questions or so. Wow, I got twelve subscribers. Really think it's popping off now. Okay, I'll answer some more questions. Just a few more. You guys start putting them in. I'm gonna have a cookie here. You guys write your questions and I'll answer some of them. I'll wrap this up. Favorite color? Favorite color? I said it was pink. Pink's my favorite color. I said it was pink. Pink's my favorite color. That or maybe That or maybe teal. Dark teal. My plans for My plans for future of the party? I just want to see it grow I just want to see it grow and I want to see it stay the same way it's been, which is good. I want to see its influence grow. I think really the site's massively influential. I think really the site's massively influential. Whether people realize it or not, I've seen stuff come out in the party and then a week later I see it in a viral tweet with 40,000 views, 40,000 likes. And people forward stuff on the Daily Jet telegram channel all the time. There was this one guy, his name was Brett Walterish someone. He made a tweet about that image. Some image from the party had my face on it surrounded by jacks. I said thanks to this guy who created the story jacks. It got like 600 likes and then deleted it for some reason. And then you go in the replies and there's people talking about the party and how they visit. So really I think the site's influence is a lot bigger than people realize. And I'd like to keep expanding that. Really I just want to see the site grow and continue as it was. But I don't really, if you're talking about plans as far as technical stuff goes and anything new or new boards, I don't really have anything on the back burner now. There's some people here maybe didn't catch in the beginning. I said that we're working on releasing the archive finally. Me and the Italian got back together and we're working on that. No promises but I'd like to see it released sometime this month hopefully. And of course I have a few technical changes I'd like here and there. I'd like to fix some bugs. But ultimately growth. Stable, normal growth. Drama free growth. That's what I want. I want to keep myself uninvolved really. Let's see. Yeah, I don't think we need Well, yeah I don't think we need any. What image boards would I not buy? I wouldn't buy anything small. And I wouldn't buy Fetch Chan. I wouldn't buy There's a couple I wouldn't buy. Oh no. Oh no. What the hell is that? Oh man. Keep this stuff out of my face. That's gross. I don't think we can make it the largest. That's a bit of a lofty aspiration. Was that the right lofty aspiration? I don't think that's possible for a while. But we could certainly get up there. Oh, I'd buy the watch. I'd buy the watch, yeah. You know, I copied some other things. Well, I considered it for the site. Well, you guys won't get it. Oh, we're almost to a thousand? Well, I might as well keep this going until a thousand posts. We're only like sixty away from there. I don't know. Nersed on soy. I say just keep it to a minimum. Too much is not good. I see there's I don't know. What the hell? The search is getting so big I can't even open it. I haven't opened the rest of the board in a while. Let's see what's going on. Yeah, it looks like everything is normal. You know, I don't think I'm going to make any public appearances for a while. I'm thinking about going on a long trip away. Maybe so much as six months. I just need to find some well, I mean, I need to train some good people to start watching the site, watching everything while I'm gone. Well, I was just thinking about going away for a bit. I think there's a lot of things happening right now and we kind of just need to let them cool down. You know, things are just getting a little crazy in the past few months. Why I didn't move the ability to see the mods? Because well, I wanted to keep the mods anonymous. I just don't want to have them, you know, front and center. People attribute personas to them and it just creates trauma. It's not necessary. The janitors and moderators of the site are anonymous. And I don't have any plans to do that. Well, as much as I could, really. Going away. What do I mean by that? Well, I meant that I need to step back there, I think. I think that I'm not interested in being the center of attention, really. Except for when I have these individual moments. And I really think that the site's best when I'm when everyone stepped back a little bit as far as the public personas go. Whenever I'm not or the moderation or the meta is not the center of discussion of sites has the best quality then. So, you know what? And there's other reasons too, but I was thinking about just taking a break for a while. Stepping back and letting things happen by themselves. You know, come back with new experiences. Come back as a, you know, like I learned some things now. There's so much stuff floating around about me and I think people just need to slow down a little bit. I'm getting a little tired. Well, yeah. My fifth and final... Well, you know, it's hard to just put things down sometimes. You know, once you get started, it's hard to stop. Going away from the whole internet, really. You know, if she was around, I'd pick up my cat and let you guys see her. But yeah, I think I've understood quite a bit. Well, let's see. I think I'm going to just take a long break for a while. You know, maybe when I come back, it'll be something big. That's what I've been thinking about for a while. You know, and the people asking me to see my face, I don't have a webcam right now. But I was thinking about doing a photo shoot recently. You know, get some better updated pictures. I've been considering that. Well, this is private, but I was thinking about, you know, dyeing my hair black, really. But that's really off topic. I don't need to do that. You know, and then maybe a photo shoot with my sister. She's a photographer. I don't know. I was considering it. And, you know, I could just take a few pictures here. People would have something new to post. Maybe even make a new Jack out of it. I don't know. But maybe when I come back, I'll have had those. Don't hold me to it, though. When I take a break, I don't know. A little bit of travel and a little bit of rest. You know how much I work? I work 16 hours a day on the site sometimes. Especially since I got this one. It's just a lot of work. So, you know, I think when I once I train the new genders, I'll probably be heading out. Everybody, it's really been a lovely talk with all of you. You've all been great. And I'm getting pretty tired here. So, you know, I've laid out a few of my plans. And I'm hoping that someone was listening here. And maybe I'll see you in the next one. Bye! Making notes, because there's a lot of people there's a lot of people here who missed the stream. Let me say this again. I planned this badly. I only put out like two hours of notice and then I did it at a bad time. So the viewership here could have been a lot higher. And I said, I think next Christmas I'll make come back then and do one of these. But yeah, I don't want to do this too often. I don't want to talk to the people too often. I know it throws the board in a flurry and gets people too excited. But yeah, Christmas maybe. I was thinking about that. Oh yeah, photoshoot. I'll do it, I think. You know, there's no time frame. Because when I'm going on vacation I don't like to hold myself to anything. I just like to take the time and step back. There's just a whole lot of stuff that I have to manage every day. But I probably would do a photoshoot. You know, nothing weird. Something tasteful. I have a lot of clothes and really my taste and fashion have matured a bit in recent times. Well, I got a nice suit recently. Maybe some of those. It was brown and checkered kind of thing. Nothing tacky though. I really do have a good taste though. I was told never mind. But you know, perhaps I would sometime. My opinion of furries? Same thing I have about same thing I have about transgenders. I just think I just pity them a little bit. By working on the site, I mean moderating it mostly. But I want to take a step back from that and put it in the hands of genders once I get them trusted. And for everyone who's missing suit, listen to me. This is one of the final things I'll be saying. For everyone who says they're missing suit, I'm thinking about finding them and doing a well, I'm thinking about finding them and convincing them to do a Q&A. I know people have been missing them. Suit, he's a classic. He had a lot of things wrong. A lot of people thought that. But I think I would definitely consider finding a suit and putting him in the spotlight that everyone talked to him. It's been a while. People want to know what was going on in his life. And I'm not the person who's going to be breaking that to everyone. I think it's suit needs to be delivering that himself. So anyways, it's been a lovely time, folks. It was a good Q&A, I think. But it looks like all the good people went to bed, so everybody, thank you. It was really lovely having you all here. I just wanted to talk to everybody about some changes to the site, potential edits and things. What was it? You know, basically, what is it? State of the story. So, you know, I think I've had my, I've got my message across. The stream is ending pretty soon. Well, if you have any goodbye messages, that was the time to post them. I'm going to eat this cookie. Well, yeah, it was very good to have you all here. I hope this seemed a little counterproductive, actually. Overall, it was something good. I hope you guys enjoyed it. I didn't do it. But I don't, you know, really, I think that I work best in the, you know, without the public attention and such that stuff. And I know there's a lot of people who get distracted by it, you know, for obvious reasons. So, anyways, good night everybody. It was very nice. It was very lovely to have you all here. So, you know, as a final thing, I'd say yeah, I'll announce it better next time. You know, as a final thing, I just wanted to say that Cobson, he'll always be a Gem.
