I think >>2256 and >>2261 just accepted the risks.
There is a screenshot of my error.

Thanks for reporting this. I have expanded the certificate to include
, both of which should now redirect here properly

While I was on the VPS, I went ahead and made some adjustments to the Nginx configuration as well, namely enabling Gzip compression.

Things should load a bit faster now. ^_^

I think the financial situation of this site should be more transparent. There should be multiple balances (eg. server, domain) and maybe some extra tiers, for stickers for example.


I agree. The current financial situation that Arisu is under is not stable, and it would be much better to have a steady income for the site than by asking for donations right before a payment is due.

Personally, I would be a fan of merchandise and/or a Patreon-like system being set up for the site.


Yea. I'd buy an arisuchan poster/cap/tshirt.


I think a donation bar with current holdings, would be more than enough, we don't need to know every little detail.

These are reasonable requests/suggestions, but they are no longer necessary as I should now be able to cover all of our expenses indefinitely.

I appreciate all that the community has done for me and the site over the years, but now, after years of chronic distress and chaos, it seems that the tide has turned and things are finally looking up for me…

…and I hope that I will be able to give back to the community more than I have ever taken.

In the short-term that means no longer requiring any assistance with financing the site after this most recent domain renewal, but in the medium to long-term that means finally having the opportunity to give the community the care and attention it deserves, which I had always wanted to from the very beginning, but have been unable to due to my own relentless personal issues.

Direct donations are no longer available as I am taking full responsibility for all of arisuchan's future expenses (incl. domain, hosting, stickers, and other merchandise)…

…but referrals (found below) continue to be appreciated. ^_^

Are we safe now?


I wanted to yes probably but when you whois the domain you get :
[Created on] 2017/06/21
[Expires on] 2019/06/30
So I don't know.


>Are we safe now?
Yes, we are safe. In fact, we may even be able to print another batch of arisuchan stickers in the very near future. Thank you so much to everyone who has donated! ^_^


Would be honored if you'd try to print the design in >>2397


>Direct donations are no longer available as I am taking full responsibility for all of arisuchan's future expenses (incl. domain, hosting, stickers, and other merchandise)…

I am fortunate to have recently acquired a well paying, long-term contract so donations are no longer necessary to finance the site.

>Would be honored if you'd try to print the design in >>2397

We have recently received donations in excess of the cost of the domain name registration so I have earmarked all of the surplus for printing/shipping another batch of stickers in the near future. So I would be more than happy to print your new design!

Thank you for making it, Alice. I'll keep you posted!

I only came across this not too long ago and I've been wondering how old it is. Because it doesn't seem to be affected by brewing soykaf or anything like that right now and thats why I really like this place

I don't hate lain but I don't post there or even lurk. I wish them the best of luck despite there poor post quality.



im also gay


>Some staff, and users, got fed up with Appleman
That's kind of an oversimplification. After kalyx, certain remaining staff and a handful of long time users (along with Seph, who had been added to staff shortly before kalyx sold the site in order to stave off homelessness for a few more months) noticed that Appleman had a drastically different approach to community engagement (which was completely hands-off and non-personal to the point of cringe, just look at lainchan's frontpage to this day), they petitioned Appleman a list of demands in the lainchan Mumble what they thought he should be doing to maintain the site's culture moving forward. He told everyone in the channel that their suggestions would be taken into consideration, but gave no clear indication that they actually would; his tone of voice was very dismissive and it was clear to everyone (especially Seph) that nothing would be done.

The idea of creating a splinter site had been thrown around before, but kalyx wasn't really interested in the idea out of concern for the community's wellbeing. He started lainchan while homeless, and wasn't about to start another under similar circumstances. Some of the remaining staff were actually open to the idea, but weren't interested in creating an explicitly lain-themed splinter site either. Seph on the other hand, was, and surprised everyone by launching out of nowhere and invited kalyx and former staff admin and moderator positions on what was now technically her new imageboard. This new relationship wouldn't last the summer, and kalyx alongside former staff were removed from their new positions due to perceived inactivity and replaced by an entirely new influx of people with which Seph had been in touch with independently of them and now's once fledgling userbase.

We are happy to announce the official launch of

What is
arisuchan is an anonymous imageboard where artists, programmers, tech enthusiasts, outsiders, and the paranoid and disillusioned meet to discuss cyberpunk literature and culture, privacy and security, science and technology, art and design, drugs and dreams, and personal experiences. Our goal is to provide a venue for new ideas to emerge as we explore the strange territories of the present and the near-future.

Who are we?
arisuchan is a joint effort on behalf of the, systemspace, and communities, and our staff includes former administrators, moderators, and members of each of these groups. We are united by our passion for cyberpunk culture and literature and we are building a community that encompasses our shared interests and experiences, exemplifying the overlap between our distinctive boards.

Why are we here? was in crisis. Our site activity was no longer self-sustaining and the number of visitors and posts was trending downward. This situation left vulnerable to collapse. Our ability to grow and thrive as a community was inherently limited by our association with lainchan and all of the drama surrounding it. In light of this we decided it was in the best interest of the community to change our name and try and build something new.

Sharing a name with another board was inherently political. As long as we continued calling ourselves lainchan, we could never fully realize our potential. We want to be what Lainchan should have been but couldn’t be.

We chose arisuchan because it allows us to remain attached to the Serial Experiments Lain universe and Lain-oriented sites and services. At the same time, it allows us to explore the inspiration for Arisu's name, Alice in Cyberland, which itself was inspired by Alice in Wonderland. The story of Alice in Wonderland plays with logic and dreams, altered states of consciousness, abstract imagery and psychoactive substances; these are all concepts explored in cyberpunk media, and there are many direct references to Alice in Wonderland in works in the genre.

The point is not to make the board about Arisu, just as applechan wasn’t necessarily about Lain. By naming our board after a supporting character in Serial Experiments Lain, we choose a namPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

I don't get why all of you glitterboys are so concerned with activity. It's a discussion board. If you have something to say, you can make a thread and most of the time you'll get some good responses. That's good enough. If you don't have anything interesting to say, and you just want to use the internet as a substitute for real life social interaction, you're just an unproductive addict. A place for sucking each other's dicks and "memeing" has no value what so ever.


God I fucking hate glitterboys like yourself. These overly "realistic" and edgy opinions make me cringe unbearably much, how does wanting an active chat make someone an unproductive addict? Some people just want to talk to the people from the same community without having to come up with a thread name and waiting. You don't like the idea? Feel free to fuck off.


Craving innane, 24/7 chit-chat doesn't make you unproductive. Unproductive people tend to want that. Internet people aren't your friends. Discord "conversations" almost never have any substance. It's a digital "hangout place".


Internet friends may not be as valuable as IRL, I agree with that completely, but I don't understand what's wrong with having a convo without much substance, does every talk you are engaged in have to be deeply philosophical? What's wrong with it being a "digital hangout place"? I don't understand your point.


Real life chit-chat is limited by how much time you see each other. Innane conversation is good in small doses with acquaintances, and hopefully as a warm up for "real conversation" when you're with friends. On the internet, there's no time limit. People can spend hours on it, they can spend their whole weekend. They can get addicted to the oxytocin and need it just to feel normal. Always got to be logged on. Always got to see what's up. Always got to catch the stream. It eventually becomes a replacement because it's so much easier than everything else. The same problem goes for social media. Spending hours of time acting like a retard with strangers isn't something I can accept as the new norm.

Sometimes images do not show up after they were posted, like these two:
I don't remember what the former was but the latter was this one (the full image, not the sample):
Can you look into it?


This happened to me in the last couple of days too but I assumed it was because the file was too big or something (longish gif).


Does anyone know how to reproduce this problem? If you would like, please test your hypothesis on the test board >>>/b/.


Go on the gelbooru link, click original image, save it and post it.


was this issue ever fixed?
in the past i've tried uploading some bigger files to boards like /art/ and i kept thinking i was dropping my files, but it was clear that arisuchan just wasn't uploading them.

Alice, why do you hate me ?


I didnt even aknowledge your existence in the first place, how can I hate you already?

I have to browse arisuchan from an environment where my ability to use a NAVI is limited but can receive practically unlimited incoming SMS, if someone would manage thread or board RSS support then it would be possible to get an SMS instead of shooting the soykaf waiting for activity on threads.

please consider this humble request



thank you


Is there any reason why it's not in the <head>?

Yes this would be great feature a hidden service :)


Get an onion server!


.onion server would be nice


Any news regarding the implementation of a hidden service?



There is no ETA at the moment but yes it has been discuss recently. I've talked to Seph about it there is simply other priority right now that she need to fix before engaging in a project like this.
