U-18Chan Does Not Condone Nazi Ideology by U-18Chan Staff - 18/04/17 @ 23:02PM
In light of recent events I thought it would be worth stating that here at U-18Chan we do not condone Nazi ideology nor is our goal to spread the hatred and prejudice associated. While our name does come from a German U-boat from WWI. As stated in our FAQ section the 'pawstika' seen around the site is the adopted symbol of the Aurorafurries, the group who created this site. U-18Chan is not based on any political or moral basis. Our staff all have their own perspective of these types of things.

U-18Chan was born like many *Chan websites from the first English speaking Imageboard 4Chan and has used Kusaba X in the past to run the site. The U-18Chan community came from an older community of the Aurorafurries which came from AuroraChan in 2006.

In early 2006 a community formed around the newly created /fur/ board on AuroraChan of furries drifting over from 4Chan's /b/. The /fur/ board was used to co-ordinate raids on /b/ so fellow furries were drawn to AuroraChan's /fur/ from /b/ raids. As the community on /fur/ grew and developed its own alias, the Aurorafurries, a Xat chat room was created by Serpentor (a moderator on /fur/) to better co-ordinate raids. From here all current U-18Chan administrators met. Although AuroraChan was the base of operations for the Aurorafurries the limitation of a single board and frequent deletions of collections led to the need for a separate website.
The first attempt for a separate website failed shortly after its creation so the Aurorafurries turned to Image Board 4 Free, a website that used to allow users to create their own *Chan websites for free off custom ImageBoard software, where an AuroraChan furry Filthy had previously set up a board. Jay, the previous owner of U-18Chan, joined Filthy in creating the new Chan. They named it FilthySlothChan, a portmanteau of their usernames (one of Jay's aliases was AlienSloth Man). The website consisted of four boards: /fur/ - Furries, /c/ - Comics, /s/ - Sexy Beautiful Women, and /lo/ - Lounge; today three of those boards still exist: /fur/, /c/ and /lo/ although they have since been joined by many other boards. With multiple boards for furries compared to AuroraChan's one, users had slowly been moving across to FilthySlothChan so Jay suggested to Filthy that they approach Serpentor about making FilthySlothChan the new new official home of the Aurorafurries. While the IB4F site had been growing in popularity its regular 4Chan raids had on several occasions required it to change it's name (changing the site's name changed its URL) to avoid DDoS attacks from slowing all of IB4F and possibly having their site deleted by IB4F's owner, Infinitus. When the site became the home of the Aurorafurries it was called U-18Chan, as a joke about submarines because the site was hiding from 4Chan retaliative attacks. Sometime after the userbase moved across the /fur/ board on AuroraChan was deleted.

Over time with growing popularity and a dedicated site on IB4F U-18Chan acquired its own domain which it still uses today. Unfortunately, with many other chans on IB4F dodging DDoS attacks and others hosting such dubious content as to warrant police attention, IB4F went down first on Tuesday 7th July 2009 after Bunkerchan brought the site offline for two days then legal problems took it offline for months. After a failed reboot of IB4F, U-18Chan was forced to move to a VPS and a fresh install of Kusaba X instead of the previously used custom IB4F software. Performance issues caused by a high volume of traffic moved U-18Chan to a dedicated machine but with problems persisting and the server reaching the point of crashing permanently Jay contacted Infinitus, who had helped previously, who gave Jay the IB4F software. On July 28th 2011 U-18Chan starting running IB4F which it has been running off since.



U18-Chan Bugtracker and Feature Requests by Foxxer - 17/02/17 @ 17:43PM
There is a new place to see U18-Chan Bugs and Feature Requests and this thread for requesting changes/fixes to the system.
https://u18chan.com/d/topic/1223291

Only staff can actually make new tickets on the tracker. All tickets are considered requests/ideas until actually implemented so don't assume that if a ticket is made it will automatically be what will happen. Large changes will likely end up being broken into parts with their discussions in /d at our discretion.
Updated FAQ and User Guide by Foxxer - 30/01/17 @ 02:01AM
I have updated the site FAQ to better reflect current rules.

I have also created the first draft of the U-18Chan User Guide that will help inform what posts belongs where.

Online~ by U-18Chan Staff - 24/09/12 @ 23:26PM

Hello fellow furs, we are back online!



What happened?!?


Unfortunately due to a "power surge" at our old datacenter our whole server was killed drives and all. I attempted for weeks to work with the company to recover our data off those disks however, they were no help and claimed they were unable to insert the hard drives into another machine so I could rip the data off them. While it is my personal belief that the company is covering up for a screw up on their side we have no way to prove that.

What about all the content?


Sadly we did not have any offsite backups available at the time of the incident to restore from BUT~ It looks like most the content is available however, at this point it will be a manual process to re-upload it all. I would like to ask all of you to help us with this huge task of restoring our content. We know this will be a long process but I believe we can do it with some help.

How will this be prevented in the future?


We have moved to a new datacenter on hardware we own instead of renting. This way we have full say and control over the server and the drives in it. We are also implementing a 3rd party cloud storage service to be used for offsite backups of our content.

Thank you all for your patients and assistance with rebuilding content.
