Welcome home. Quilt 08/13/2019 (Tue) 02:35:16 No. 1
It has been almost 5 years now. It feels weird to me that so much time has passed, but here we are.

An independent home for /late/ has been kicked around for years now, but it is only today that it became a reality. We owe it to Nax for much of making it happen, and Deadly, for being Deadly and funding the server.

Enjoy, sleepy anons

06/03/2020

We have a matrix instance available. You can sign up to our homeserver by going to https://riot.im/app/#/register selecting advanced and entering https://matrix.late.city. Alternatively just sign up for an account on https://riot.im/app/#/register like normal. Our community is at +home:late.city.
This link may also be useful: https://matrix.to/#/+home:late.city.

There are currently 6 channels federated between discord and matrix.

We hope to see you there!

https://discord.gg/3zYmeqP

We are reopening invites to our Discord server. Yes, discord is pozzed. I don't think anybody on our server has much love for them. Our server was started in the latter half of 2016 when discord had a better public image, and so far we lack an alternative with a feature set that we can transition to. Currently we hope that matrix and riot.im will mature into the alternative we need. When I or other members of staff have more time, we will set up mirroring and more seriously attempt to wean ourselves off discord.

Until then, I recommend using discord in your browser and using ublock, if not umatrix and other tools.

23/12/2019

We had an incident involving spam. We went back to a backup from the 20th. Hopefully this won't catch us off guard again. Odd that anyone would bother with spamming us.

The radio will be down for a few hours.
Do check it out later.

Now this is nice.
a nice, new comfy home. I like this a lot
Hey Quilt-san! Quilt-san!

Need any other supplies salvaged?
>>31
If you have some of the other threads archived, or any other material of interest, please send it to me. There are some threads that I think I will restore by hand today provided I have time.
>>37
Is the discord still active, it's been a while since I've been there.
>>70
Discord is active, but we will probably move to a matrix server over the next few weeks
I am glad to find you guys are still alive. Are we not revealing ourselves to other bunkers?
I’m so glad you all survived. Even better to see you’ve spun off into an independent instance. Will you be joining the smug/cafe/julay/vch webring?
>>122
Erischan is in there and I didn't even knew they existed, so I don't see any reason as to why this board couldn't be.
>>123
Please join please please!
>tfw even sportschan joined them
It's unbelievable, please do join
>>129
Apparently we're joining the webring soon(tm), not sure if nax/quilt/whoever has asked yet.

/late/ has been added to the ring.

>>130
Hey guys, a warm welcome to the webring.
(15.42 MB 1062x713 1566034240592.gif)
Didn't realize /late/ had a place already. Should've joined the webring earlier, but better /late/ than never.
Yay, /late/ is here. Nice to have you guys with us.

>>147
Fashionably /late/, of course!
Small complaint, but I'd like it if you changed the boards image with something /late/ related. A crescent moon, perhaps?
>>154
I was supposed to be working on that but I was stuck in bed all day, random flu got me. Sorry 'bout that.
Hello I see you still have the default thumbnail size
I remember a /late/ anon posted an ad for halloween on my board once, seems like a nice board
This board is top comfy
Let me give you a couple lynxchan words of advice
-global settings -> Overboard uri -> type "overboard"
-use filezilla to upload static pages (contact, global rules, about, links). Copy the templates and edit them with notepad++
-Upload logo using filezilla
It's been a while since I last browsed /late/. I'm happy to see it got its own bunker.
Hey sleepy brothers.
I come from anon.cafe and mle.party asking to be included in your webring rotation.
I'm home!

Also 200 get!
so glad this exists, thought I lost /late/ forever. Thanks to everybody who put the effort in
I remember 2 years ago the /late/ halloween movie night
I wish I had found /late/ prior to the webring. Someone posted a link in another board before it was added to the webring, and after following it, I've found that I really enjoy it here. There's something extra comfy about it.
(86.56 KB 1200x978 the forest of received images.jpg)
Glad to see this place is here.
damn I just remeberes the name for the site. I thought I might find a radio server like last time not a chan. glad to see /late/ is still kicking
hello
Good to see my /late/homeys, here. I started some of the horror games threads back on the old place.Wonder if death stranding is a good /late/ game.
Holy fuck I remember going on /late/ back in 2015. It's only now after I decided to host an imageboard for my city that I've found /late/s new home. I forgot how much I missed this place.
How do we make the old crew and new night owls aware of this place?
>>319
we have discussed this before on the dickcord
conclusion was that getting on the webring is exposition enough already, and most people know of this board
those that dont will hopefully find us through julay, going on 8kun is not an option, that place glows like reactor 4 of chernobyl power plant, blin
>>339
Is there an IRC for this board?
>>344
Unfortunately not. There has been on and off in the past, but activity has been limited, and the discord server has a lot of channels that are active, which is probably why they don't have a bot mirroring stuff.
>>349
>the discord server
uh oh, this isn't one of those tranny cult things in clever disguise, is it?
>>349
That's a shame. I would have loved an IRC with the people here, and I'd rather steer clear of Discord.
>>351
No tranny's afaik. It's the best server I've been on yet. Keep an eye out though, I'm pretty sure Quilt hates discord as much as you do, wouldn't be strange to see a chat mirror pop up.
>>358
Hey, you could bridge the Discord into Matrix. That would make everyone happy.
>>358
I'm not extremely opposed to discord, but I'd prefer not to use it if possible. If it's just shitposting and chilling with the lads I don't really see much harm, but it's not really secure either. Right now I'm just lurking a bit. I might check out the minerman server and then maybe the discord later.
>>339
Is the discord decent?
>>375
it is
there's no trannys or jannys so its all good
way more active too
>>539
Lol wtf is a janny
>>545
Janitor, it's basically a mod I guess?
>>545
Discount imageboard moderator. I heard the pay is pretty good though.

>>349
>gen z shitheads would rather circlejerk in their fucking discord than post here
This is the cancer killing imageboards.
(2.06 MB 1920x1080 PorcoRosso6.png)
>>590
Nah, it's not Discord. We're just too old or too slow. Everything's real fast and ephemeral now, image boards make no sense anymore. You post a thing, someone sees it and they move on to the next.
>>564
But they're supposed to do it for free! My whole life is a lie!

I really like this site. Up, late at night, this my to go. It's such a nice place and I've never felt so comfortable reading a thread. No extremist shit, just people here, all drowsed out, waiting for a friend. I'm going to post here every night and do what I can keep this board from dying. This is to nice to lose.

If you're reading this do what you have to do to keep this a home. A genuine home. Stay comfy and stay tired.

Hi, buddy!

WE ARE THE ULTRA-COMF EXTREMIST TERROR GROUP, SLEEPY TIME! WE ARE NOW GOING TO GO AROUND SHOOTING RANDOM CIVILIANS WITH SOFT QUILTS AND PILLOWS! MWAHAHHAHHAHAHHAHA!

... oh wait, it's morning already? Aaah shit
Fuck deadly.
Quilt never should have given a stoner power.
Ban me from here too, bitch, i dont care. I've already added all of my friends from the server anyways.
As closing words, I'd like to say: fuck deadly.
I know back on 8chan /late/ and /comfy/ were once close boards, so I thought I'd just let anyone interested know that /comfy/ is back https://anon.cafe/comfy/
>>725
My joy is immeasurable and my night is so much better. Thanks, anon!
>>730
No problem, glad it was of some use.
Missed you guys, didn't know if I'd ever be back here. Hope you're all well.
>>820
We missed you too

Hey, sleepy bros, /icup/ here, we all wanted to invite you to join our friendly virtual sports competition!
Come have fun with us over at https://anon.cafe/icup/ if you want to!
And if you want to add your own team, we'd sure love to sign you up!
It's very nice that /late/ has a home all its own.
I feel like /late/ and /kind/ are sibling boards and I don't know where the latter went. They had a board on Julay and used that as a bunker to their own imageboard but I don't know the address or even if it's still alive.
>>868
Try kindchan.org.
>>838
Hey guys, what would you think about making a team together?
>t. /comfy/
>>884
/comfy/ has always been a close ally of /late/

I think in these trying times we should indeed ally
Who /panic/ when the site is down?

(286.58 KB 853x480 infinity cup committee.png)
As a heads up, there is one week left to submit your board's entry to the Infinity Cup! For your entry to be considered complete, we still need a full roster from your board. Since there's no thread here, I'll link you to /comfy/'s so you guys can link up: https://anon.cafe/comfy/res/830.html
(29.25 KB 702x702 latecomfy_logo.png)
Congratulations to the /late/ half of /late/ & /comfy/, your board is now officially entered into the 6th Infinity Cup, a competition dedicated to crowning the divegrass champion of the webring! The defending champion and host for this Cup is /kind/, who defeated /co/ in the final, via a nailbiting penalty shootout. We will be following a similar tournament structure this Cup, with a Group Stage, guaranteeing your board at least 3 games, and a final Knockout Stage to determine the sole champion. The tentative schedule for the tournament is as follows:

>July 31
Second Deadline, for tactics and Player Cards (explained below)
>August 1st
Draw Stream on the Infinity Cup Cytube, determining which teams your board will face in the Group Stage
>August 7th, 8th, 9th
First, second, and third Day of competition
>August 14th, 15th, 16th
Fourth, fifth, sixth day of competition, completion of Group Stage
>August 22nd
First day of Knockout Stage
>August 23rd
Final day of Knockout Stage, and the champion is crowned

So what's the deal with this second deadline? This is for the strategy your team will run during the games, and it's the alternative to live managing. It's a simple text document that the rigger follows during the game that outlines offensive and defensive tactics, as well as substitutes. As for Player Cards, these are the special abilities your players will carry into the game.

>Alright, I think I can handle that
Perfect. The page explaining Team Strategies and how to select them is here: http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Team_Strategies And the page for Player Cards that does the same is here: http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Player_Cards You can send your strategies and player cards to me (SKF@8chan.co or SKF@cock.li) until July 31st, which gives me ample time to actually put them into the game. If you have any trouble with this as well, reach out. I've tried to make those two pages as accessible as possible, but I know there's still going to be issues for those putting it together.

>I want to help but not do that
Not a problem. Most teams don't have their roster pages filled out, and it's likely yours is one of them. Head to the wiki and fill in your team's roster page with images and brief profiles on your players. It really helps the commentators with their shitposts in-game. (Exemplar roster pages: http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki//ita//Roster http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki//loomis//Roster http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki//otter//Roster) We're always looking for 3D models of players on teams, so if you happen to know how to use Blender or have access to MMDs or similar 3D models, pass them along and we'll work on getting them into PES. We're also opening up submissions for adboards for this Cup, the field advertisements the scroll through during play. To submit them, simply post in your respective thread on /icup/, the only requirement is that the images be scaleable to 512x64, as that's the dimensions that PES needs for them to work. And as always, there's also room for any OC you guys want to put together for the tournament.

what happened? not sure is it me, or the yesterday and few hours ago I'm getting 502 Bad Gateway on /late/

not that it's a problem now, as everything works fine now.
>>1120
It wasn't just you. It's good that it's back now, but spotty uptime isn't a good sign.

Anyone know if the Matrix server is still up, I'm struggling to connect to it.
>>1143
New discord link would be nice too. Discord shut my account down and is asking for my phone number, had to make a new one.
>>1142
Disclaimer: I am a rep for another team, also a /comfy/ native.
I like it! If no-one else made a post I would have suggested something very similar. Thank you, Anon.
Possession Game and Short Pass are not only a great combination, they are also characteristically comfortable as well. Same with flexible structure and a large defense.
I can't say all-out defense and aggressive defending match our theme, but those are the tactics I am using so I think it's alright ;)
I'll link this post over on /comfy/ for awareness.
>>1144
If you don't mind paying for things, there are websites that you can pay $0.50 (bitcoin is fine) for a real (non-VoIP) phone verification on major sites. A couple of them are known to give free trials too.
t. VPN user, popular sites always ask for numbers.
Hey I can’t get onto anon.cafe but it’s probably just my connection
>>1155
Problem's on your end.
>>1156
Also there was another site like this for some other board called like /happy/ or something? I forgot it’s name and it’s on the Advertising thread on /comfy/
Posting files has been broken for a couple days. I get an error:

>Blank parameter: boardUri, the parameter is not present.

I'm not into webdev at all, so this is a mystery to me.

>>1166
Maybe you're thinking of /kind/? I know they have one at anon.cafe.
>>1166
>>1180
Its kind.moe
>>1185
I came from there. Nice to see you guys know about it too.
>>1180
I'm having this problem too! I want to make a new thread but that's the same error I'm getting, and I've tried from 2 different browsers on this computer and my phone.
Now some glowinthedark bot is spamming generic doomer WAAAAH garbage everywhere and the admin seems to be awol.
>>1180
>>1217

same here. or will get a "Connection Failed" message

>>1250
was wondering about that too. all the sentences are, strangely, incomplete
>>1255
It's interesting to infer what this sort of attack is meant to accomplish. There's the shitty, depressing music, mentioning the MSM's favorite spree-shooter, baiting people into IRL interaction. The bot even samefagged to fish for information about what we're doing off-site.
>>1256
Time will tell until then we just wait for the admin to come.
The likelihood of the board being attacked would probably be lessened if it wasn't part of the webring anymore. Kind.moe would want to link here and vice versa if not for that.
Test stream today, just for fun 2 CDT 3 EDT 19:00 UTC https://cytu.be/r/8cup
The Quick Reply box on mobile won't let you scroll to see the captcha.
Just a reminder you have less than a week to finish up tactics and player cards. If you are having any difficulties or are worried no one will step up, leave a post here or in your thread on /icup/. I have an anon on standby willing to put something together for teams who need help. If you're a team who has participated in a previous Cup and you have not explicitly let me know you're sticking with your strats from last time, do so ASAP, as it cuts down on the work I'll have to do in the week after the Draw Stream. If you've already done so, kick back, take it easy and wait for the draw stream. Draw Stream is August 1st, 2PM PDT, 4PM CDT, 5PM EDT, 21:00 UTC. Mark that calendar.

As well, we're still accepting adboards for use during the tournament, visit the dedicated adboard thread on /icup/ and post them there.

Because I think imageposting is still wonky here.

Not only does late still exist, but I come here and see a banner I made years ago? Nice!
