    out of the 2 other people that know about http://whatport80.net/ , there were some updates done not only to the software, but also to the server that it's on, potentially breaking a lot of shit. So one thing i'm asking for is for people to check it out to see that it's working ok, and if it isn't, I need to know so it can be fixed.

    And for anyone that's probably wondering why I wanted to bring that site back, i have a few reasons:
    1) I wanted to
    2) because I can
    3) because I can
    4) SFW port of ED can be done a lot better than what was there before
    5) because I can
    6) dongs

    If anyone is compelled to help, feel free to reg an account then and...help? idk
    Also random question for the hell of it

    Be careful with Special:passwordreset, sysops can change bureaucrat's passwords and get into their accounts. They may have fixed that by now but I remember on the old wiki OldDirtyBtard did it to Tfo and caused a ruckus.

    Also I want to help out but honestly I am too swamped with ED stuff right now to actually edit. I will do whatever linking/Advertising you would like though, you have full access to both of ED's sites for whatever you need to get the ball rolling. Who knows, maybe this WP80 could actually get some traffic unlike the other one lol.

    I gotta admit I do miss the theme though. She paid a Mexican $2000 (or maybe pesos idk) to make it, I shit you not.

    I am personally of the Belief that whatport80 was the whales test vehicle for oh shiternet and therefor is a cursed and vile thing that can never be clean.
    Maybe I'm stating the obvious but so what?

    I don't completely understand you, but WP80 came along before they had the idea of Ohi. While it was meant for profit, it was still awesome enough for us to mirror.

    I agree that WhatPort80 is a good idea to bring back, but I just looked at the mirror we have, and it looks like shit

    I always loved the goatse and tubgirl pages on whatport80. They described the images in so much depth.

    Anyway, NekoArc better get a good theme.

    yeah I can just enable it when it's needed. as for promotting it, we can talk about doing stuff when there's time, I'll see if i can bring back the wp80 template for ed when it's back.

    Shit, 2k for that design? I'm surprised

    Why the hell should we reconstruct WP80 is
    1.)Ediots and /b/tards alike are against SFW/polished/sanitized shit
    2.)WP80 was the public beta of OhShitternet
    3.)SFW shit is boring as hell
