The forum formerly known as 8chan has been relaunched under the new name '8kun.'




The website was pulled down in August after the El Paso, Texas mass shooter posted his manifesto on the site.




Two other mass shooters also used the website to distribute their manifestos.




The relaunched site has already faced bugs and technical difficulties but has also already served as a platform to foment the conspiracy QAnon community.




The first day the 8kun was up, a user purporting to be 'Q' posted, which made waves among Q-devotees.

8chan — the anonymous forum known for its associations with numerous mass shootings — is back online after being pulled down in August, but now it's going by a new name: 8kun.
The site appears to be nearly identical to what it was previously, but notably, there is no /pol/ board (yet) — typically the subforum where shootings were encouraged and manifestos posted. Ron Watkins, the son of 8chan owner and operator Jim Watkins, said on Twitter that boards (subforums) are still being migrated from 8chan to 8kun.
The perpetrators of the El Paso, Texas; Christchurch, New Zealand; and Poway, California massacres all posted their manifestos to the site before going on to collectively murder 76 people. Shooters were often encouraged and applauded on the forum, despite efforts from moderators to pull down shooting content.
