2018-12-13: Provider mandated maintenance on the search server will begin 2018-12-14 UTC-0 09:30-10:30, and may require the search to be powered off from 03:00-15:00.
Year-end planned maintenance on the full image server to replace degraded parity drive is also suggested by the Tetrarchy for 12-28 to 1-06, TBA. Donations would still help in case of image storage failure and we still need a new scraper.
The server is stable, but the scraper is at its final limits due to crippling resource use and cloudflare limits, so /gif/ and /wsg/ images are paused. Let's solve this: help build a new scraper. More details here.
Ghostposting is under extreme vetting by new moderators to mitigate spam. Crackspamming or responding to any is a bannable offense.

Surrendering

Through out the Ages what has been the most common form of surrender during or to avoid combat. And what where the initial reaction when given the order to raise the white flag by soldiers, higher ups and the civilians alike?

Would be much apprichiated if you cited events and illustrations rather than just saying "Yeah, The Americans raised the butts of their rifles when surrendering during the civil war"

Other questions:
>What was their fate?
>How were they treated when the conflict was over?
>Would they be spared on the spot or just offed by their frustrated enemy?
