Back in 2015, when I first “joined” Tor, I came across a site called The Dark Lair, via one of the many link lists. Its Tor URL is http://vrimutd6so6a565x.onion. It seemed like a rather friendly place, so I joined. At present, it looks like this:
The Dark Lair’s creator is a dark web denizen named Garnech the Prime; I’ve run into him on some of the social networks too. His site has several main features: The Board, which is like a newsfeed; a list of links, which no good Tor site should be without; The Enigma, which is a cryptographic puzzle; The Gallery, which is a group of photos; and Pages, which caters to various interests (e.g. Cybertron, Techno, and “Spices”).
Anyhow, the site isn’t all that “complicated”; it’s just a place for people to socialize and share ideas anonymously. I like it better than the ones that copy Facebook’s format, because I had initially ventured onto Tor looking for something different than Facebook. I didn’t really know what to expect.
Well Garnech, I love how the site looks, and keep up the great work! Perhaps one day I’ll even solve The Enigma.
