An update:

In the meantime, the rendezvous point is the thread posted near the top of this page.

Hoppe-sama.xyz has collapsed. Julay has collapsed. I am no longer the BO or King of /monarchy/, but I should note that the endchan site is still active if need be.

However, we seem to have created a strange alliance for now, but the fascists have created a bunker here for the hoppe-sama folks: https://anon.cafe/fascist/res/131.html . Anyone from hoppe-sama, meet up over in that thread.

Current King, you have my actual address. If you see this message, please contact me.

Julay is back up, we're good again and back at Julay.

It appears that julay has gone down. Backup is in endchan in the meantime.

Welp, a ton of boards just came back online again. It looks like we're still hanging out in julay.world for the most part, though. Things are looking up.

Godspeed,

And I'm glad I planned ahead, because it looks like the overchan board went down.

To those of you who have stuck it through on this journey so far, you're a trooper. To those who haven't, you're probably more intelligent than I am. I don't like to give private details, but I don't consider myself that much of a tech guy, so trying to figure out where to go to have a home for this has been difficult. I'm also pretty burnt out too.

If I do have to make another bunker after this one, it'll probably be a random thread on spacechan. That's about the only other place I know of that's left.

Godspeed,

Alright. I've been able to catch up and we now have at least two instances of the board bunkers in two different places that are currently active. Go to the overchan if you're sick of moving around every two days, but for now I'll personally be at the julay.world link.

I usually try to keep my content janitorial, but some of this does pertain to the board's future. In other words, I'm wondering where would be a good place to stay after all of this smoke clears down a little, so I hope nobody minds if I go over some of the latest news and share my thoughts.

It's been confirmed that the earliest return date for 8chan is September 5th, the date of the Congressional hearing. However, personally, given the investigations currently going on I do not believe that 8chan is going to be coming back. As the EFF predicted, I would not be surprised if entrapment+SESTA/FOSTA were used to bring down 8chan entirely.

Given this, I think there is a reasonable chance that 8chan will not return. Even if it does, there will be numerous issues. At the very least it will be DDOSed to hell and back. If it doesn't, then given the attention thrown at it, it will become even more of a shill and honeypot site that will eventually be taken down by using entrapment+SESTA/FOSTA, DMCA, or some derivative of Article 13 brought over to the U.S.. That latter one is important, because the conclusion there is that I don't see how long-term these sites will be able to stay around. I don't know what to do in the longrun. I started up a NNTP board, but I guys I do not know what the hell I'm doing. There's a lot of activity on 08chan via Zeronet, but I'm having a lot of difficulty in ascertaining whether some of stuff I've been reading about what's possible/what logs are kept/etc. are true or not.

In short, I'd like to stay with the Onion network because that seems tried and tested, I've lost a lot of trust in 8chan, and if Endchan's reopening goes well, I might consider just moving there.

Godspeed,

For those worried about having moderation (or don't trust NNTP), I found another place to set up a bunker in case both 8chan and Endchan aren't coming back. As mentioned above, it is at https://julay.world/monarchy . I'm able to give it proper banners, and will be trying to do so today.

Got some contact informing me NNTPchan has different nodes, donchanow? The link above reflects a node that is still online. We still have a bunker now.

In this past week: NNTPchan is down, vichan is down, Lynxchan is down. 8chan looks like it will be out until at least September 5th. Endchan is down for 'maintenance.' Options are slim. I'll keep moving bunkers if any of you still listening here have the energy for it. Things seem pretty shit right now, and my paranoid brain is convinced that something is trying to systematically shut down all the chans. As of now, the only remaining chans on the entire net that I know of are:

I don't know where to set up. I don't know where to go at this point. If anyone still reading this has any thoughts, let me know. At the latest, wait until September 5th. That's when 8chan's Congressional hearing is going to go down, and with it, probably everything.

Godspeed,

Endchan is getting a new frontend. What a time to do that. In the meantime, I'm trying to find a decent clearnet site to bunker in in case you're (understandably) afraid of NNTPchan, and you want to wait until that comes around. If anyone has I2P or Zeronet sites they're looking at, let me know and I'll put it to the growing "webring" at the top of this page. I understand NNTPchan is a somewhat seedy place to hold up, but one of the few onion chans I could still find and whose link still works according to Hidden Wiki.

Welp, it appears Endchan is going down too. I don't know what happened to them. If anyone knows, please let me know. Hell, if any of you are still reading this, please let me know. In trying to find yet another place to host the forum, and thinking how things have panned out the past couple weeks, I've decided to put the forum I'm trying to find some completely dark web place to host the forum now, since it appears that almost every uncompromised chan out there is getting shut down. For now, I made a monarchism thread on NNTP. This is the best I can do for now.

Godspeed,

It appears that Endchan's clearnet domain has changed due to DDOS attacks. Also, 8chan is still down and given some recent rumors about the site owner, I doubt it's coming back up soon.

I'm moving posting to the Endchan link above. I will leave this active in case both Endchan AND 8chan are simultaneously down, giving us a means to communicate where to move to next. Until then, I'm working on migrating as much of the content I was able to save over there. I hope to see the survivors swing by.

Godspeed,

~King

I have edited the above to include an exile bunker for us to post in. Also, consider it the new site in case 8chan really does go down forever. I have just made it, I have not included any of the content from the old forum site yet.

Godspeed,

Did I happen to do any of this in time that any of you are following this bunker? Well, I hope that might be the case, at least. I've heard some reports that BitMitigate were deplatformed, and there's some sort of holding pattern going on. I'm having difficulty verifying anything that's really going on right now. I'm going to assume the worst the same way that I assumed the worst when I made this txti. To that end, I'm working on an alternative bunker/colony that we can use if that happens. When it's up, I'll post it here.

Godspeed,

Well, it looks like 8chan was brought down. I hope as many of you as possible were able to see this link in my rush as I tried to get this set up. According to https://twitter.com/CodeMonkeyZ their DNS and DDOS services are being moved over to BitMitigate as of a few hours ago. For me, both the main 8chan site and the onion services are down. FWIW, the last time I asked for a board archive of /monarchy/ (which is only useful if 8chan is brought back up again) was on 1/21 of this year; and before things went down, I tried to manually save as many of the images as I could. We'll see how things shape up by the end of the day. I'll be back later in the day. If you have any news or thoughts to report to me, please do so at acemous at 8chan dot co (which is the official contact of the board, if any of you bothered to read the rules page).

Godspeed,

In case you haven't heard, Cloudfare (which hosts 8chan?) has decided to pull DDOS protections for 8chan. I'm not sure whether this will extend to hosting as well. Given some recent shootings in the U.S., there seems to be a likelihood that all of 8chan will go down. For now, per https://twitter.com/CodeMonkeyZ/status/1158202303096094720 there's going to be some downtime as new services are shuffled around. I'm going to wait and hope that things can still be resolved, but it looks like it will take some time and things may be dead for a couple days because of that. In the meantime, I would suggest you copy, download, and save any board OC, text, imagery, posts, threads, etc. that you find meaningful; because any time there has been a board movement a lot of content gets lost. /monarchy/ does have some of its content archived, because I sent in a request to do so, but that was some time ago, and even then I would expect it to be extremely volatile given the quick pace of events in the last 24 hours. Remember that 8chan does have an onion service as well, so it's likely that even if the main site and domain go down that activity made be able to continue there.

Tl;dr:
