This is a board for topics that don't fit on other boards, but that are still otaku/hobby related.

I'm out of the loop and I wanted to talk about this for a while. What's this "alt-chan alliance" thing and why is it bad?

Sounds made up.

This might've been something else, but I'm probably thinking of the right thing.

Last I heard it was a bunch of small imageboards ("chans" because they're retards) grouping up together to be more popular.
Back when 8chan was still down and people still had hopes about it being any good when it came back up, they tried to recruit some of the bunkers into their popularity club. One in particular, Julay World, leaks this, and then they get made fun of for their really big egos and dreams of POPULARITY.

In short, basically what you'd expect from guys calling themselves the alt-chan federation. Nothing you'd need to worry about, given that nobody is worrying about those splintered bunkers or 8chan's "future" (if you can call it that) anymore.

I think they're referring to basically the webring [1] formed by various imageboards after the 8chan fall. If you go to e.g. anon.cafe and click "boards" you'll see a bunch of other boards that are roughly independent, being on separate domains (and hosts I presume) but are linked together. Unsurprisingly they're all hot garbage.

Bunkers just referred to themselves as "the webring", if anything. I never heard the term "alt-chan federation" be used for any of them.
Although the whole webring thing comes with its own amusing drama, like the board owner of /v/ constantly being kicked out of it because the guy who owned /cow/ didn't like him.
You're right on the "every single board on it is shit" point though. Especially the ones on smuglo.li. They're somehow the most autistic imageboard out of any I've ever visited.

At risk of advertising autism, there is actually a website for the alt-chan federation it seems.

Is this something like Freenet, where you're hosting other people's (potentially illegal) shit?
>> No. 34498 [Edit]
>>34496
No, this is all on the public internet and there isn't anything illegal; it's just a bunch of imageboards all linking to each other.

Just a group of small (dead) imageboards who conspired to take down the remnants of 8chan and scoop up their users. It was an incredibly retarded plan that never would have worked and their plot was eventually exposed by the owner of Julay.world.

It was a thing centered around spacechan, getting jealous or scared or otherwise touchy about 420chan having the second highest popularity after 4skin. And so, seeing how 420 had quite a noticeable commited contingent of communists on its /pol/ (when it was there) or elsewhere, they wanted to have a distinct rival to all that.

So, spacechan did manage to actually muster a higher traffic /b/ than 420, naturally together with not having many other boards, in contrast to 420 where the users simply constantly ignored those boards and just posted on /high/ with grumbles that the other boards are to slow and shouldn't exist on "a board with only 50 users". But spacechan went to shit though, apparently due to one or two cohorts of "anallockman" flooding endless tranny pics, or some stuff very close, shortly after 420chan had axed its porn boards.

Oh yeah, 420 is of course is where the original transsexuality chan board, very ironically labelled /cd/, arose, until it tanked basically right upon the introduction of /lgbt/, which itself had some horrendously dramawhoring headcases, such as "Kayla".
