The Recruitment Infographic.
This article refers to the *chan raids. For other uses, see Valentine's Day

On the 14th of February, 2016, 4:00pm EST, a couple of anons from /b/, /pol/ and various other 4chan and 8chan boards went together to attack the unholy bastion of evil known as Tumblr and wreak havoc for teh lulz. However it didn't actually start on the 14th, Operation Valentine had a bit of prep-work behind it to ensure that newfags wouldn't fuck it up. A few anons from the start decided to team up (including people from a few former operations, with varying successes behind them) and proceeded to recruit plethoras of users from 4chan in order to build up a personal army.

Somewhere along the line a tumblr spy (Yes they have those for some reason?) infiltrated and never did anything else other then reveal the raid, but failed miserably (like the faggot he was) at everything past that, only getting 10 reblogs several days before the raid.

Until the 13th it was all recruiting, but then the planning stage came, and, with at the very least 100 anons, they finally set their decision into stone and decided to mix up a timebomb raid with normal posting. Everybody would follow each other and reblog each other just to artificially inflate the number of posts, even though nobody ever came anywhere close to reblogging every post, the supposed amount of posts should have amounted up to 500,000 (it didn't) and it was very clearly visible everywhere on the most visited tags and a few fandoms.

There was also a video of a user from /k/ before the raid.


Whether the raid was a success or not is up for debate, but the images stayed in the top of a few tags for a day or two and clearly grabbed the attention of at least 2,000 tumblrinas based on one tweet that had a decent 4,000 likes/reblogs. Either way, it did give the conductors of the raid a decent amount of lulz, the tumblr moderators were so incompetent that the accounts didn't even get banned until a day or so after the raid was over. An anon from the raid decided it would be fun to leave a Valentine's Day card at the end of the raid, but nothing really ever happened.

Spare Information

  • The raid was conducted on 4:00P.M EST and lasted for at least two hours.
  • When I say that the raid being successful is "up for debate," I mean it didn't exactly have a long lasting impact like some of the larger 4chan-tumblr raids.
  • 500,000 is just the maximum amount of posts/reblogs that would have been made if possible.
  • The raid didn't get much recognition on 4chan because the Nazi mods were total faggots and made any kind of discussion about it really hard.
  • It was more successful then the likes of Operation Timebomb, but it didn't quite achieve the scale of the Independence Day Invasion or Operation Overlord.
