    Hi friendos,

    Nya.is is now owned by Josh - the founder of Kitsu/Hummingbird.

    When I closed off uploads, he sent me an email expressing interest in keeping the service going; After some conversation with him, I felt that I could trust him with taking over the service as he seems to have similar values to my own; and have sold it to him.

    What I concluded while talking to him:
    • He'll continue to respect users privacy.
    • He wants to make a service that everyone will continue to enjoy, without cluttering the site with advertisements.
    • He seems pretty okay.

    The files and domains will be transferred to him within the next couple of days, and once that is done; I will no longer have any control of the site. It's sort of saddening to hand over my child; but it's definitely better than closing off the service; and it feels good to hand it over to someone as capable as Josh and I look forward to seeing where he takes it.

    Feel free to post any questions or concerns below.

    Hey all - Josh here. I'm really excited for the future of Nya.is! Our goal is to continue improving on the experience that we've all come to enjoy with Nya, myself included. Happy to answer any questions / concerns that you guys may have for me personally.

    Hey, welcome new owner! We are so eager to see this service brought back to life! Oh, and feel free to message anyone with the cute red heart on their name. I'll be seeing you every once a while to see how things are going! <3!

    Calm down, Fukuchi. He is not going to declare anything less than a service reopening, isn't? I don't know about Kitsu, either.

    There is no need to be scared or worry about, Lewds. He is our savior, and we all shall treat him equally.

    Niicee. It's really nice to see nya.is would continue running. Can't wait to use it again. :D

    Definitely the better outcome. It would have been a shame to see Nya(~) go...

    Anywho, looking forward to uploading even more dank memers and nudes


    Goodluck, @Josh !

    Glad to see it'll still be in the hands of someone capable, and motivated towards the service. Was really sad to hear it'd be shutting down, and even more sad when my back up was Imgur. Thanks for running the service for so long, and thank you Josh for taking over and keeping it going.

    I see why you are a bit sad to hand it over, I would be as well :/
    it says a lot about your character that you are willing to do so though,
    really great that you want to keep nya alive for everyone :)

    thank you

    quite unfortunate

    Down for more than 3 days yet.... This will be a lot of work to put files in another server... :( Well, I feel I cannot do nothing to preserve this giant file server online, isn't?

    Very sad.

    just keep bumping this post until he eventually deals with it https://kitsu.io/posts/8782069

    the one he linked as it's on Josh's site Kitsu.

    He seems to be posting on his page https://kitsu.io/users/Josh

    I have spoken to Josh, and he has decided to close the service down after receiving reports of child pornography being uploaded to the service.

    He spoke to his lawyers and they told him that he could be held accountable for it due to the unmoderated nature of Nya enabling the mis-use of the service.

    I'm currently in the process of getting him to transfer the domain(s) back to me, so I can put up a notice.

    Might be good (yet time consuming) to moderate pics before allowing them to be uploaded, like booru sites. Those uploading that garbage could probably do it again.

    how are you going to prevent the same from happening while you run it thus you being accountable? Also, since when can you be held accountable for people mis-using your websites? wouldn't imgur and the like be destroyed by trolls by now?
  • Red 07-26-2017, 10:33 PM
    Hm yes what a pickle. Hope it works out.

    Perhaps if there was an option to let users report illegal content?
