>This feels like theft.
Theoretically, it depends on what's in the contract. If you buy a business, you probably agreed that every asset belongs to you, including accounts.
In practice, the domains belong to the company because good luck going to court against a gambling company you sold your meme sites to.

>> No.44870242

I wonder if they would need to go to different courts depending on the domain TLD? for example the .fi would be under Finnish jurisdiction and the .com under American? I don't know, but wondering

seems to be a common problem with Sweden too, a bit of naive innocence

>> No.44870332

No. You can rent domains from a domain registrar like porkbun or namecheap. When a domain "belongs to you," it means you have the right to renew your rental every year. .com domains are not American, it's a generic top level domain originally meaning "commercial" and you can buy them from every registrar. Many Japanese websites use .com as well, while in some countries it's customary to use the country-specific domain (which would be .us in America). .fi is different, I think you can probably only rent those from Finnish registrars (there may be country-specific rules regarding these). But none of this changes the question of who the domains belong to. I have no idea where they would have to go to court for this, probably Finland but I don't know much about law.
A good domain name is very valuable, so it's a shame he lost them.

>> No.44870336

to be fair the online casino people IIRC are all Finns as well. The company being in Malta and Gibraltar is because in Finland private gambling stuff is illegal and state has the rights to it, so they do this thing where they move to Malta and as long as the servers are there they cant do anything. They are in the EU so the Finnish state restricting their citizens access to these legally Maltese online casinos would breach fundamental rights in the EU

>> No.44870355

and the site itself is under Maltese and Finnish jurisdiction. Breaking Finnish or Maltese laws there is no go.

>> No.44870366

>They are in the EU so the Finnish state restricting their citizens access to these legally Maltese online casinos would breach fundamental rights in the EU
No, blocking foreign gambling sites is common practice in the EU. I suppose these online casinos don't specifically target Finnish people, they are just operated by Finnish people in Malta. Just a couple EU citizens doing business in another EU country.

>> No.44870374

Speaking of domains, what ever happened to the original 2ch.net domain? Who owns that?

>> No.44870380

In fact, when you have a website, you don't want people where laws are problematic to access your site, so you can block them yourself. This is what 5ch used to do with EU countries because they are not going to dance around vague meme laws from meme countries they have no business in. I wish Yahoo unblocked Europe too.

>> No.44870388

Yahoo has EU blocked? why?

>> No.44870399

Hmm...I checked and the Finnish law doesnt prohibit playing in these online casinos so therefore they cannot do anything as long as its legally Maltese. I do know that sometimes websites that are based in some EU country but actually targeted for others do get the same treatmeant as they would be in Finland but I think this is case by case thing.
I think its the GDPR thing. Nips dont give a fuck

>> No.44870451

Yes. Chiebukuro too.
Because GDPR is so vague and restrictive it's practically impossible to comply with. When you're a big site that operates in Europe, you have an army of lawyers specializing in that shit, but such an investment is not justified for a Japanese site with practically zero useful EU users. It is pretty grim really, an amateur isn't really able to operate a site with confidence because the rules are very broad and strict.

>> No.44870583

Right, playing may be legal though you need to use a VPN if they're blocked and pay taxes if you generate profit.
At any rate, I don't think the guy will go to court with this company. This is why you have to account for all cases and ensure you're legally covered, especially when you do business with gambling companies.

>> No.44871636

it should be up to the EU to block the sites, not the sites having to block EU

The whole idea is absurd as this is not how laws work. When you're in another country, this shit doesn't actually apply to you, but they claim it does. So they practically bully sites into blocking the EU.

Scroll to post 110 on both to see that they have the same content on both sides, and then look at post 111.

>So if people just write a lot the thread can die/be locked before getting to limit?
That's the idea. It isn't closed like when you reach 1000 replies, but it should give you an error message when you try to post in it, I don't know how or when it gets cleared out. This is what the docs say anyway. There are threads with more than 512kb though, so I think it varies by board (the limit on aasaloon seems to be around 1mb) and/or has been changed. If you check the size of dat files on most boards, almost all of them will be less than 512kb, so I suppose they still do this.
I think it discourages meaningless AA and >> spam.
>maximum post size
Usually 2048 bytes, it's defined in the setting file. This gives you 1024 Japanese characters (2 bytes/char) or 2048 Latin characters (1 byte/char).

>> No.44956258

Yep, it's flat files. Gives you some ideas as to why it shits itself on the regular I guess.
Flat files are very fast to serve but when you write into them, there are just so many things that can go wrong I wouldn't bother. You can use a database like MySQL to store your master data (like Futaba-style scripts) so your system is durable and consistent, and you have a lot of options for caching, like you can generate flat files, or use another, faster database, or you can use slaves on multiple servers, etc., so that reads don't bog down your master.

If I were in a situation where there were multiple writers (posters) trying to write to the same physical file (or thread), I'd implement some kind of queue system to hold the posts while a separate writing process writes the posts one at a time. My concern would be to maintain high write throughput without having to worry about locking the file due to the possibility of multiple writing processes. (This is mostly for the benefit of fast threads).

Once you need to write into more than one file, it becomes non-trivial and you have to implement measures to avoid race conditions, and it may still get messed up if there's a power outage or something, so I would just use a database.
There are copies of read.cgi out there (it's in C), but I'm not what was written by who. Anyway, writes are hot handled by that but bbs.cgi (there's an old leak).

by using extremely long names with characters that occupy more than one space after they're encoded together with a tripcode, you could break the native expansion and threads.

I think the cult stuff is probably overblown, and Megalian ceased to be a coherent entity years ago, but it definitely seems like there was a deliberate effort to sneak pinches into a lot of the promo material. Less "esoteric scheme by sinister cultists" and more "crazy korean women doing a little trolling" imo.

if you really want to browse them (they are just porn), then make a thread about needing a gold account and you will get one. They are abundant and gifting gold accounts is common, they even introduced 10% tax on it (1 day of gold gets reduced by 10% when gifted) because some people have infinite gold accounts from previous events.

Getting free gold accounts is easy and thats the only reason why people arent aping out. You also get them the more you post.

the site used to have platinum accounts, infinite gold. This was removed and those who had bought platinum got lifetime amount of gold days. Then there are power users who get rewards by posting a lot.

the site admin before he closed his another board site northpole.fi, told to either make account or change their account name to similar one as in ylilauta. Those who did, got gold until 2025, as a tribute to keeping old board culture alive. The site admins job contract with ylilauta ends that year as well so it had a symbolic meaning as well, "these good lads deserve gold so they dont need to suffer from the stupid changes yet to come".

This also probably lead to them introducing the 10% tax, since people just had too much of them for free.
picrel, 24 h of a pin is 2160 gold days. Gold cost 69€ a year or 6.9€ a month.

So you can pin your thread to the top. The prices are high though and plenty of people just filter the pin by default.
