In a rather "random" turn of events (please laugh at that pun, I beg of you), I decided to add a new trial board to the site. If it is well received and has steady content, I will keep it around.
After a bit of downtime, we were able to get IDs enabled on /b/. Special thanks to illu for putting up with the absolute batshit craziness the server was giving us for whatever reason. Now you guys can roll for kot ID
According to the bill for the domain, Grimchan was founded 1 year ago. We've gone through a lot. Grimchan started as a hobby project of mine, where I hoped someone might get some enjoyment out of the place. We've gone down twice thanks to external circumstances, but, despite the name, Grimchan never stayed dead for long.
I want to thank all the users of this website for making it the place it is today. Many of you are new, a couple of you are old, but you're all equally appreciated to me, as well as the rest of the mod team. This place has grown into something I am incredibly proud of, and the kind words I have received make me incredibly honoured to have founded this place.
Here's to another year.
The annual Grimchan census is now online over on /reap/. It will be available to complete until midnight of April 11th. I really encourage users to do so, it's rather short and will help make this place better.
Thank you for the help.
In an attempt to give people a break from constant shitposts, /s/ is basically a board where you talk about whatever the hell you want in a more serious tone. Tell people your troubles, what's going on in your life, or your interests/hobbies!
Shitposting isn't against the rules or anything, I just discourage it because it'd be nice to have a more serious board. But if you must shitpost feel free.
Thanks again for coming along for the ride.
Grimchan refuses to die, ironically enough. Welcome all to the third iteration of this stubborn site. This time we actually backed everything up.
For those wondering, we got a strange email from our VPS saying they were shutting down, without context or reason. We had just enough time to save all your terrible posts and get ourselves a well-fought refund. Now we're going with a more local server setup that's been going strong for quite a while; we're much less worried about random shutdowns now.
As for the site, once again some minor changes–mostly to boards–will be rolled out soon. Thanks everyone for patiently waiting, it's appreciated. Here's to Grimchan 3.0!
A couple changes were made to boards today.
The /m/ board was removed, as it was essentially dead. If anyone's that crazy about having an /m/, feel free to make a general on /b/.
A new board was added, /z/. Someone suggested a board that changes every so often and I liked the idea. You can suggest your board ideas in the sticky, and tomorrow I'll make a poll.
Hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving, and thanks for stopping by.
Well everyone (all ~3 of you), we're back! After losing both the server (thanks Alpharacks) and the backups, Grimchan is back on the web. It's been a hard few months, but this place isn't ready to die just yet.
We're overhauling things a little bit. Expect some new boards and a design overhaul in regards to static pages. The w1cca CSS (thanks again, illu) is not going anywhere anytime soon, though.
I'd just like to thank all the people who made this place possible, again. Without the help of dddudeman, this server would still be a mess. And thanks to illu, this place doesn't look like complete ass, nor is it held together with duct tape.
I'd just like to say that I'm glad to have this place back. I missed it beyond words. I hope I can be a part of something even better than the first iteration. So grab your swanky whiskey glasses, pour your favourite single malt, and let's have a toast to Grimchan 2.0!
