2018-10-04: Search server active for recent posts, rebuilding for older posts. RebeccaBlackTech restored after host's storage had a 2nd SAN hiccup on 9/24. No damage, but we need to import posts from the a contingency scraper. Many thanks to our new tetrarchy of sysadmins who worked to fix this complex service after the loss of the original admin. More info later. Donations would still help in case of image storage failure and we still need a new scraper.
The server is stable, but the scraper is at its final limits due to crippling resource use and cloudflare limits, so /gif/ and /wsg/ images are paused. Let's solve this: help build a new scraper. More details here.

Secret Santa 2018 - Registration

No.10002561 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Hello Gulls! December is looming ever closer which means it is time for Secret Santa!

Yes, its early.. We are opening it earlier again this year for a couple of reasons, mostly due to the amount of people who order gifts online as it gives enough time for things to arrive before the due shipment dates, but also in hopes it gives people enough prep time to send things on time as well.

If you have not joined a Secret Santa event before:
> Fill out the form linked in this thread
> Your details will be sorted into groups and you will be matched with others with similar interests
> You are allocated names, and details of your match who you buy gifts for according to your allocated price range
> Christmas comes around - a gift arrives at your door!


The link to the form is:
QMo9TFd4PE5dOnKA2


The rules are practically exactly the same as last year and have been copied over and slightly adjusted. Please read them here:
https://docs.google.com/document/d/16LJX1HRw9tsGnPCooQD3Rk9MbLvwFaAMw27XAsgn8AQ/edit?usp=sharing


The deadline for sign-up this year is October 14th. This gives you 2 weeks to join!
The deadline for sending gifts out will be December 15th.


Thank you all for your feedback in the previous thread, we have tried to consider most of it and adjust the event accordingly. If you have any questions or need to know if you are on the Whitelist, please email me or HelperGull. Of course, if you are still interested in helping - please also send one of us an email.

Thank you, and I hope you can all join this years event!

Halloween is coming!

What are you going to dress up as this Halloween?

Pic is me, I dressed as a Lich last year. I'm thinking of doing it again, but I'm also thinking of other concepts that are a little more classic-horror. Haven't started on anything yet, which is a problem! I am especially nervous about the makeup job; my face was originally just caked in smudged eyeshadow, and then I met a wandering makeup artist who corrected it and made me look appropriately villainous. I'd prefer to have full control over the process but I don't think I have enough time to figure it all out...

I love going out to bars on Halloween and getting to be spooky and cool. I wish costume parties happened more often during the year, but at least we get like a whole week at the end of October!

I'm a huge fan of all things horror so feel free to recommend or discuss anything that gives you ~spooky~ artistic inspiration. I love new things and old things alike!

! nanchatte thread !

A new nanchatte thread!

Last thread: >>9959760

>Nanchatte is a trend of adults wearing school uniforms as a way to recapture their youth or enjoy experiences/fashion they didn't get as a student. Can also be worn as a general fashion style after school hours by current students who don't have fashionable uniforms at their schools.

-------------------------------------------------

A few questions!

Considering that it is becoming chillier, let us discuss how to properly dress for the changes in weather!

>How do you keep warm, aside from wearing a coat and perhaps a scarf? Do you wear tights, have tricks to rock the bare-legged look without freezing to death, or are you simply a yeti and resistant to the cold?
>Do you have any inspo of coordinating raincoats in a cute way with your outfits? Perhaps rainboots?

I am also interested in the community aspect of nanchatte.

>Do you have any friends or acquaintances you wear nanchatte with? Is there a community where you live, or one you have joined online?
>How would you go about creating a local, most likely small, nanchatte community?

>Any Western inspiration suitable for nanchatte? Mayhaps recent cops?

And lastly, I'm very interested:
>What made you like and start wearing nanchatte?


Don't be afraid to share your own outfits, fun stories and inspiration ~

(I'm sorry if I did this incorrectly. I have never made a thread like this before, but really would like to see a nanchatte thread. Please correct me in the format and content, so I can improve ! I really would like to learn : ))
