Created by Hawtwheels (seen above) in 2013, 8chan rose to popularity over the last few months with the rise of GamerGate and major bans on 4chan's /v/ board that discussed the movement. Of course, wanting a place for clop and to further piss off /v/irgins, the pony fandom soon made the board /pone/ and began filling it with porn, awful memes, fetishes, shitposting, and more porn. However tonight it seems that the fun is over.
Luckily there may be hope for those still wishing to get back on 8chan. First off, Hawtwheels is crippled and therefore a wizard. Second, there's also a text document specifying how to get on again. For convenience we've also pasted that document below.
Synopsis of 8chan's status: The 8chan servers are ONLINE. We are not under attack. 8chan's domain name was stolen. It is currently owned by internet.bs for now. YOU CAN STILL ACCESS 8CHAN IN THE MEANTIME! Here's how to do it: Go to: C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc Open the "hosts" file with notepad Add the following lines to that file: 126.96.36.199 8chan.co 188.8.131.52 media.8chan.co
Congratulations, you now have 8chan. If this doesn't work, delete 'System32' and restart your computer to reboot. For mac/linux type this into a terminal, enter your password when prompted: echo "echo 184.108.40.206 8chan.co >> /etc/hosts" | sudo bash echo "echo 220.127.116.11 media.8chan.co >> /etc/hosts" | sudo bash
8chan and Hawtwheels, we hope everything gets sorted out. If not, best of luck to you and your future endeavors.
