After some discussion, the overall vibe came to the conclusion to pause posting studio sets for some time. I will publish the remaining studio sets in the pending queue, but then let’s make space for other types of photos. The posting of studio sets is resumed in August.
Are you happy with that timeframe?
So, my dear studio set lovers. This weekend belongs to you.
I love you and let’s enjoy the last remaining studio sets in full length. I haven’t deleted anything this time.
This is what BoB looks like when I just publish what is pending.
So I thought about sharing my view when reviewing and publishing pending posts.
This is what the pending queue looks like, after one day since the last (huge) wave of publishing: Continue reading
My dear community,
we did it! BoB is running almost for two years now and it’s still alive! Given the time until such a site gets taken down when attempting to host it on the regular Internet, I’m proud that we’ve made it so far. (You know, somebody once announced a clone of BoB in the forums, and only a few days later, the domain already got parked.) Tor and its security and anonymity mechanisms really do work.
But BoB wouldn’t be BoB without all of you, so thank you so much for filling it with life, love and boys! The numbers speak for themself:
I’m leaving you with this special christmas present: The Tabuzone.
This is the most soothing and comprehensive PDF guide about child love ever created and my humble gratitude goes to its anonymous author. It’s written in german, but I hope you’ll find your way with the translation engines out there. Remember: Always use the Tor-Browser.
Blessings, and merry christmas!
One of our members approached me and told me that he has to fill out a survey and he can not access the site until that survey is answered. Puzzled and worried I quickly checked the integrity of the webserver’s files. However, they are ok.
Then a suspicion crossed my mind. There are these proxies on the Internet which allow you to access a hidden service like beautyboysj2sgq3.onion without the Tor Browser. And as it turns out, onion.rip is altering the content of the site and inserts malicious scripts and surveys. It looks like this:
Pay attention to the URL. It must look like in the screenshot below:
Don’t use these proxies, it puts your anonymity at risk!
Download and use the Tor Browser: https://www.torproject.org/ and access The Beauty of Boys directly via the Tor Browser.
Use the Tor Browser.
Use the Tor Browser.
Use the Tor Browser.
Everything else is insecure.
When I returned from my holidays, I was welcomed with broken BoB forums and messages. The issue was a corrupt table in the database. Since some tables are intertwined, I had to restore the whole database up to the point where the corruption took place. Since the database has grown quite large, the restore took several hours to complete.
This means we lost some posts, some new registered users and some comments. But we have our forums and messages back and working.
I’m sorry that this happened. It seems that after over a year, running a database on an encrypted harddrive has now caused some issues.
Thank you all for your patience and especially thank you Puer Amicus for standing in during my absence.
I am back, BoB is back – we are returning to normal operations.
There is nothing wrong with mentioning a beautiful body, a cute face or a gorgeous boy. But what you, Underten and Tiny little bill wrote, clearly steps over the line. We had the site shut down back in those early days because of “sexualizing comments”, you know.
If you wanna write how much you’d love to hold nice sweet little hairless cocks and swallow loads of cum, go somewhere else. This is a site for boylovers, not boylusterers.
All of Underten and Tiny little bill’s comments are now trashed and their accounts deleted.
As some users pointed out in the forums, the server is currently experiencing performance problems. Image uploads are slow or don’t work at all, sadly.
My apologies. I’m already investigating this with my hoster.
Give us some time.
It gets better. It probably got better. Tell me in the comments.
The last day of november you had to live without the beauty of boys. All the allocated bandwith has been exhausted. Achievement unlocked, you did it! 😉
New month, new bandwith. Everything is back to normal.
Keep in mind that this might happen again at the end of a month. I’ll migrate to a bigger server in the new year to match the higher bandwith requirements.
All outages and news related to the status of BoB will be published on this infosite: beautyofboys.info
Beauty of Boys will be offline for some hours on the coming thursday to friday.
I’m upgrading some hardware.
It seems that we have a bunch of new users here – cool!
Just a short recap on some topics:
Use the forum
I saw a couple of posts like the last one and I want to emphasize: please use the forum! This is the place dedicated for discussions, and your posts won’t have to be approved by me first. Blogposts are reserved for photos of boys, essays and news.
Use the Tor browser
It seems a new onion-gateway has opened its portals (onion.link), that may explain the rush of new visitors. Use the Tor browser (torproject.org) for maximum security and anonymity. No provider, no police force can see what you are visiting when you use the Tor browser. Also, such proxy gateways are likely to get shutdown or being forced to block The Beauty of Boys, as already seen with onion.to and others. BoB in the wild open Internet is long gone and .onion remains or last hidden bastion. Use Tor to keep access.
Don’t delete pictures of your published posts
Sometimes I see users “cleaning up” their media library. This is bad because your already published posts will be missing the photos! I do have backups, but restoring images means additional work for me.
Sascha, come back to us!
If you happen to be Sascha, the former master and administrator of the original Beauty of Boys, please contact me. We all want you back here, you did a fantastic job, maintained BoB like nobody can with all its fluff and competitions and changing themes and banners. I can provide the hosting and security, but it would be amazing if we had our beloved maintainer back!
