It's time to put the BL in BLock­Chain*

Here at BobaBoard, NFT stands for Not Fucking Those. As the official "Chaotic Good Fandom Hub", we always aim to set our love for The Once-ler aside and carefully weigh the externalities of our choices.

This is why we've decided to go back to the basics: an external credit card payment processor and a SQL database are all we need to bring you the very first ship marketplace. Oh, and of course, a copy of AO3's Selective Data Dump for Fan Statisticians.

Look, the blockchain being ~evil~ is not a good reason to pass on a great joke. If putting ships on an actual blockchain was morally viable, they'd already be there.

I see the NFT parody isn't lost on you.

Buy a Once-ler dakimakura *coffs* I mean. Hire help for web development tasks. Bring BobaBoard to the masses quicker. Buy more Peach Oolong tea to keep me hydrated while coding.

Absolutely nothing.

No reason. I'm sure you don't mind if that other person ends up owning your OTP. We're all reasonable people here, and we don't care about petty things like who spent money on a meaningless certificate issued by a joke website.

My only absolutely, 100%, I-stake-my-computer-science-degree-on-it guarantee is that your data and payment info are indeed secure. All I store is a handy reference to Stripe's transaction details.

But are the pictures of your favorite characters on the selection screen actually of them? Is your certificate going to be for sure delivered and not lost to the ether because of an error? Is it impossible for a very dedicated person to set up a script to automatically buy everything wholesale for $1? Boy, I sure hope so.

If you encounter any problem, don't hesitate to contact me.

I am so glad you asked! BobaBoard is an upcoming social network/community building tool/open source project created first and foremost for a very specific corner of the web.

As its philosophy doc says: "BobaBoard aims to create a social space to experience transformative fandom with friends, sitting at the cross between older, more-anonymous web-spaces and modern social networks".
