>OnionsNews is going to shut down operations on June 30th.
>This wasn't an easy decision to come to, and it's ultimately the culmination of a lot of factors, some which were in my control, and some that weren't. A large part boils down to critical maintenance to the site not properly being performed for a very long time. To pay back the mountain of technical debt we've built up, it would require relaunching the site from scratch.
What is the history behind this stupid word filter? Did someone get buttblasted?
Jannies got called that, got buttblasted, made the filter. Yes they are that pathetic
Wasn't it when Moot got cucked and making fun of?
literally this, it was in /mkg/ lmao, mods have soiboards
It was getting kind of crazy with people saying some variant of söy every other post at one point.
>soi is still censored on LULZ.org
It was pathetic at the time now it's just bizarre.
>we built the site off of Perl and heavy dependency on Apache 2.2
yeah I can see why they're killing the thing
If I were them I'd move it to FastCGI + Caddy.
No way they'd have to rewrite everything, just move to a new server, and do a bit of dev to fill in the gaps.
it seems like some kind of blog or leddit clone; you can write a narrow replacement for the important feature set in days (or a prototype thereof in hours), then can move on to implement the fluff later on, at your own pace, or just never
this is all an excuse to shut down a site that the owner is not really interested in anymore
>it seems like some kind of blog or leddit clone
good day zoomer, which vape juice are you rocking?
i'm probably older than you are, i just don't feel like virtue signalling when posting anonymously on LULZ
>wow guys i bet you don't know what /. is!!!
calling it a blog or leddit clone is the easiest way to convey the idea cross clearly
cope & seethe
>t. never ported anything to a new stack
Just modernizing the test suite might take multiple weeks or months.
why does a news website need all this bloat maintenance? isnt it just static pages anyway?

They played tech debt bingo and won.
good, it was just the same as the original except less users
rip oldfag shit. The shitposting was great and better alt to slashdot. I'm getting old and have less to live for day by day
