So, heres what we are going to do
- Fix the sloppy CSS (thanks kuz)
- Restore *almost* all of heyuris&world9ch' features
- remove the shitty features that no one liked
- Institute a ban on Russian IP adresses. Sorry, but it had to be done. Aprox. 2,000 Russian IP adresses, presumably 9channers, lurk this site, without posting, and it puts incredible strain on the Servers. If you wish to be unblocked (meaning you will contribute), please email me --> email@example.com - IPs which have contributed will remain unblocked, and VPN's will be unblocked (not unbanned).
front page redodone! let us know what you think
- fix broken links, outddated information, and update the rules.
- (attempt) to spread the word about
- post numbers
- frames, but better. and toggleable
- migrate the old threads to the new software (guess im gonna do it manually. thanks again kuz)
- pet my cat
- you do like cats, right?
EDIT: old boards can be accessed by putting /old/ before their dirname. like, img.sh.net/old/b/

October Updates — by kuz @ 11:45PM EDT October 7th, 2020.
Some boards are going — Yes, you heard it. We are going to be doing away with some boards. In the end, /a/, /b/, /q/, and /r/ are staying. All other boards will be archived and removed from the index. I have made this decision due to the fact that most of them recieved little to no usage on a daily basis. I later found that I wasnt bothered at all by this, SH only looks to serve a few purposes, and those few purposes cant be served with just those 4 boards.
Post Migration — I will be working tonight to move the posts to a new software that is hopefully less disliked. Theres not much more to say to this. I have wrote previously about the problems that I hope to eleiminate here. It seems that bringing back every feature Heyuri had is a new addition to my list. Seeing as though that seems to be a very common point made in many /q/ threads.
Visual Updates — We now have both a redesigned front page and frames. Enjoy.
Temporary Withdrawal — Well, I suppose theres really only 1 way to put this, and that is that I am a bit tired. I have been working pretty much nonstop on trying to revive Heyuri ever since it collapsed. This is my 3rd try, and while its my most successful so far, its also very time consuming. In light of this, I had been presented with 2 options; 1) Exhaust myself to the point that SH no longer becomes fun. or 2) Take a break to recover, recoup, and prepare for the coming months. In the meanwhile, I have created 3 branches for the 9ch Central Group, and 3 Anonymous Moderators to oversee them. Normally, I would be the head overseer for everything operating under KolymaNET, but due to the circumstances, the Moderation Branch, News Branch, and the 9CA have all been put in a temporary holding state with the 3 Anonymous Moderators at their heads.
This doesnt necessarily mean I'm quitting, however it might be a while until I resume my work in a full capacity. I have a gigantic list of things I have to do and it seems as if it only gets bigger day by day. Please, reserve your complaints to /q/. I understand that some things arent the same as they were in Heyuri, but keep in mind that we are months behind compared to Heyuri. Rome wasnt built in a day, and neither was heyuri. SH is no exception. It will be a substantially long time until we operate in the same capacity Heyuri did. I hope that you can all understand and bear with me through these struggling early days.
You can help out in many ways. If you are a PHP developer, contact me and I will discuss details with you. If you have alot of spare time and devotion, consider becoming a moderator, or, if you just want to help out by doing something little, you can spread the word about SH, and help keep users coming to the site. Thanks for your support,

● New software(???)
I have recieved several complaints about various 'features' (they arent bugs i swear), such as post numbers resetting on every new thread (thanks kareha, and roman for not fixing this for image_mode), no inline-expansion, and improper style formatting for posts. There are several ways i can fix this.
- spending hours upon hours trying to re-do kareha.pl to fix these issues
- migrate to ktaba.php (everythings in russian)
- find some other IB software that is less shit.
However, upon attempting any of these resolves except #1, i am met with the problem of post compatability — i.e., not being able to migrate the old threads to the new board. With our current script being in pl, moving it to another software (like ktaba) would be impossible. Unless i wanted to painstakingly re-create each thread and its replies.
● Front page
im tired as i write this... so ill make it short. do you like this?
