The official 8chan Twitter account tweeted a video featuring the new logo on Sunday. 8kun -- "kun" is a Japanese suffix used when speaking to teenage boys, while "chan" is for children -- is not online yet. Site admin Ron Watkins tweeted Sunday the site is being tested internally.
The site was registered with Toronto-based Tucows, one of the largest domain registrars in the world, on Sept. 7.
A spokesperson for Tucows said that this was the first the company had heard of this news and that "they're looking into it."
