Welcome to /sw/ Stormtrooper 09/30/2019 (Mon) 03:13:34 No.1
The board for discussing all things Star Wars!

This thread serves as a simple introduction.


• Here are some essentials to getting started on the board and integrating into the community.

1: Check out the board's CyTube channel for streams and live chats (feel free to edit the playlist if you're registered on the site): https://cytu.be/r/star-wars

2: We are currently working on starting our own alternative to Wookieepedia. Once its up, a link to it will be posted here.

3: Don't be afraid to ask for info, sauce or links about SW comics, books, games, etc. We're always happy to share.

4: Learn some freaking Huttese, you scocha kungs.

5: Fair warning. Diehard Disneyfags and Namefags can and will be mocked by the locals.

6: Always check the catalog.

7: Credits are accepted, but truguts are preferred.

The Rules:

• The rules here are simple, we live by and follow the rules and laws of Hutt Space. Which means we barely follow any real rules here unless its illegal or stupid. Just don't post CP, don't samefag, don't spam, don't do anything that will attract glowniggers, and keep shit on topic as I don't like banning or deleting shit, unless its necessary, like spam, cp, brownpill shit and raids. Off-topic shit will not be deleted either, but it will be anchored (unless its scifi-related and in relation to us), so just make a Meta general for that kind of shit.

May the Force be with you, troopers.

Hey BO, I made a custom CSS if you want to use it: https://pastebin.com/FC7Sq9Tx
>>2787 That looks like cancer.
>>2788 If it looks like shit at least explain why and how to improve it
>>2788 Really? I like it.
>>2787 Comfy. Can you import the logo font? Would be cool if that replaced redtext.
>>2843 Wouldn't that require Robi to install the font on the site itself?
>>2844 You can ask robi in IRC, but you should be able to import fonts from other servers by using [code]@import url();[/code]. Don't ask me how. I don't really know much about CSS, but I know for a fact that you can do this.
>>2787 I like it well enough, seems comfy and if anybody doesn't like it they could just disable board CSS.
Black and yellow is okay on its own, but it doesn't go well with the preset colors of the site. Greentext looks ugly next to yellow text. Just go with all white regular text because that's how old websites were and it's comfy.
I like the yellow and black, the background looks cool and the text has good contrast and is comfortable to read. However the red can be difficult to read, particularly in filenames; you may want to tweak brightness. Green is fine for reading but doesn't fit right into the color scheme. Quotes don't necessarily have to be green.
>>2846 Huh, so that aurebesh font idea that's been discussed for the last year or two might be doable after all.

>>2787 can you test replacing the yellow and red with the combo in pic related the light blue is easy on the eyes and it looks like the intro you get with every star wars film. Could work?
>>2889 could work well with greentext too iconic colors
Now that this site is going down what's our next Echo Base? There's a set date and time to think so it can be an orderly transition.
>>2929 first thing to do is grab everything or at least make a back up. I'd do it myself but I got a stupid ass data cap and slow internet
>>2861 >>2876 >>2880 >>2889 >>2890 Ok, I could sort out the CSS to fit.Sorry I haven't responded so quickly. Aurebesh font is interesting but how would that work? Would it appear in aurebesh but work like a spoiler so when you hover over it it reveals the latin alphabet? Or straight up aurebesh so learning it would be required? As for the site going down, do you have any plans? anon.cafe may be a good place, but I don't know if they'd take the board as they don't seem to have many resources.
>>2931 anon.cafe sounds viable, at first glance I don't see any issue there. If not there's 9chan, /starwars/ already exists there as a tiny board though I don't know who is is that runs it, if necessary we can make another board.
>>2931 >Would it appear in aurebesh but work like a spoiler so when you hover over it it reveals the latin alphabet? I was thinking it'd just outright replace the font with aurebesh, but if you can get that other way to work- then I don't see why not. >>2932 There's also the option of self-hosting, but again- that's probably not gonna happen any sooner than the baobab holonet wiki.
>>1 Just a heads-up: the old board is back on 8kunt- archive everything you possibly can
>>2937 how do we do that?
>>2940 nvm. I figured out a way, https://web.archive.org/web/20200501215629/https://8kun.top/sw/index.html all 25 pages. Images however need a scraper or something.
>>2940 archive.is/archive.today seems to be the preferred method these days. Archive.org works, but it has serious issues (eg, being able to remove all archives of a domain name by fucking with the robots.txt)
I want to sincerely apologise for fucking the CSS up and doing a half-assed job. This is by no means a complete job, but it should look a lot better than what we have now.
>>3173 >Greentext <Pinktext (((Brackets)))
>>3174 Shit forgot bg it's not spam robi
Here's what it looks like. https://pastebin.com/TRY6h426
>>3173 >>3175 Looks much more polished, I like it.
>>3181 Thanks. I need to try and find Robi in IRC and see if he would be willing to install 2 fonts so anons could shitpost in Aurebesh and redtext would be in the logo font (pic #1 >>3173)
>>3182 >install 2 fonts so anons could shitpost in Aurebesh Fuck yes
wait, so is this reborn julay?
>>3176 Its not working right anymore. The stars and logo are gone.
Okay so the board isn't lost then? I thought Julay was gone for ever lol
so I was doing some thinking drinking, and wondering if it would be possible to import shit from the old 8chan/8kun /sw/ board somehow?
>>3345 Why? This board is year old already.
I took a break during all the disruption. I should get back into regular posting.
You are welcome (and wanted!) on acidkike's 8chan. Won't link or spam or shill it but as an SWfag who primarily posts on their /v/ I miss having you guys nearby.
>>3681 Mark killed /sw/ because the board was migrating elsewhere. Why should /sw/ get back in bed with him?
>>3688 Mark nuked /sw/ by accident because he's a fat fingered Jew and got the timing of that retarded migration wrong. He is not an admin on the new site in any way and is just a BO.
>>3681 Fuck off mark. No one is going on your dead shithole when webring has all the boards and can accommodate everyone. Kys.
>>3681 Go away, (((you))).

>>1 Free speech is a fucking joke. Quality discussion and non-retarded users are desirable, not shitty posts made by pleb-tier faggots who shit on even Lucas' Star Wars because they're ideologues. Hail Palpatine.
>>4287 free speech allows for small-scale deplatforming, ie banning people for faggotry or disruption. only large-scale deplatforming (our enemies' strategy) is a violation of free speech.
