#CHOO CHOO! HERE COMES THE FAILTRAIN! by Super_Buick - 07/02/10 @ 04:28 PM CEST
The Failtrain has returned! 7chan's very own dedicated, 24-slot, Team Fortress 2 server will be up all day, everyday! (Unless someone fucks something up or there's an update)
Our server is located at tf2.7chan.org:27015 and we look forward to seeing you faggots soon.
In addition, we now have a 15 slot Ventrilo server
The server costs approximately forty dollars a month, and we intend to run it through donations (this month has been paid for by /vg/).
You can donate here.
Any other concerns can be addressed in the official /vg/ thread, or in IRC at irc.7chan.org, #FAILTRAIN.
SEE YOU SOON, MAGGOTS.
#We're back! by Sazpaimon - 06/20/10 @ 02:14 PM CEST
Sorry for the extended downtime, the new server guys took their dear sweet time in setting up the new machine, but now we're officially back in business.
I never got a chance to make a backup more recent than 3/22, but honestly, we didn't lose much between that time, maybe 1 or 2 boards, but content-wise, April through June were pretty slow months, due to the server issues. Any boards lost because of this will be restored soon.
Anyway, welcome back 7chan!
#Mysterious happenings on /x/ by Cryomancer - 03/15/10 @ 09:22 PM CET
Somehow, it seems /x/ - Paranormal has become /x/ - Paranoid.
But what could this mean? It's simple. /x/ now caters to a wider variety of discussions regarding things beyond the everyday. We have opened up the vault doors to allow for subjects such as Conspiracies and Theology. /x/ standbys like the occult, aliens, cryptozoology, etc are of course still very much welcome and will likely remain the bulk of the board's content. This doesn't mean you should all rush to make 5000 threads about dreams and / or atheism though. You shouldn't do that ever, really. So don't. But do feel free to get your tinfoil on.
#What's the status on Arcadia? by Teffen - 02/02/10 @ 09:25 AM CET
My Minecraft server, Arcadia, was temporarily shutdown for several reasons. I've had little time to devote to the server and with real life responsibilities taking more of my attention I've decided to have a temporary downtime. The other reason is a declining interest which stems from our frequent users having obligations of their own.
As for now, preparing a new map is my next priority as well as setting up user permissions to improve anti-grief measures. Optimistically I would say that we should be up and running in the next week or so.
If you have the old server URL, you might catch some behind the scenes work.
