flags not showing up Bernd 11/25/2018 (Sun) 21:09:34 [Preview] No. 20752
Basically title, I can see it when I click to [preview] though.

Just refresh the page, then should correct the balls.
Endchan had a bumpy road this year, had to be migrated for a few times, lack of funding prevents the owners and admins to run it on a good server. This means hiccups in the operation of the site. We built a Taoist level of patience because frankly, nowhere else to go.

Bernd 11/25/2018 (Sun) 21:29:51 [Preview] No.20755 del
If you get 500 Internal Server Error also try to refresh. Sometimes it go away promptly.
In the past few months the site was DDoS'd as well. Check the home page (link should be in top left corner), other access options are listed there, just scroll down.

Bernd 11/25/2018 (Sun) 21:43:11 [Preview] No.20756 del
the thing is the page is keep loading, it never stops in the main page so refreshing dont help. as for in threads even when I refresh I cant see the flags. I'll try with other browsers, maybe it's just my mozilla being retardeda.

Bernd 11/25/2018 (Sun) 21:55:59 [Preview] No.20757 del
Firefox should work fine, I use Palemoon and I don't have such problem with the flags (I've other problems on Palemoon), or when it occurs I just reload. An hour ago the site was fucking slow tho - with many 500 errors - now runs fast for me. If the problem lasts for you, we'll let them know on /operate/.
Board dynamics goes liek this. Usually there's little posting in the evenings, very little posting in the mornings. During the day most of us work, so yeah. And frankly, we are 'bout 9 people (most of us don't post daily however), maybe a Tor-poster once in a while. I'll hope you decide to stay we need a little traffic and new blood, sometimes it feels we discussed everything. Twice.

Open developer tools and look on network tab and console for errors. This may give some insight.

Ctrl-shift-i in firefox for example.

Actually, I just looked into code and looks like images are loaded from imgur, and default flags (hosted on endchan) are hidden by css. But at overboard original defaults are shown.

So, it is you and imgur I guess. Try to open direct links:

Bernd 11/25/2018 (Sun) 22:11:54 [Preview] No.20763 del
I cant open the links unless it's like 0imgur.com

Bernd 11/25/2018 (Sun) 22:18:36 [Preview] No.20764 del

So it is directrly imgur-related, because it is blocked in Turkey.

I see some solutions in internet, mostly as browser extension that can redirect links to some proxy-like site (like that 0imgur). You may also use some addon for custom css where balls will be replaced with images from another host.

Or board owner may change CSS and move images from imgur (but where? and do this really worth it?).

Bernd 11/26/2018 (Mon) 06:12:22 [Preview] No.20775 del
I wonder if the balls could be stored on site. I can gather the balls from imgur, would be a tedious job, but still. Post some music and while I listen it I can dl the balls and put them in a tarball and featherball to upload here so BO could more easily access it. Then he could upload it here if possible (I'm thinking how banners work like this).
In the past year I also picked up CSS so I can edit stylesheets. If I knew the path of storage I could update our custom CSS.

Bernd 11/26/2018 (Mon) 07:47:23 [Preview] No.20777 del
(221.72 KB 800x3475 balls.png)

You don't need to, although you can and need to listen to music of course, because it is often good for relaxing.

I've downloaded them all with simple script from css (maybe BO already has them, but whatever). Files are named by css rule from custom.css (United States of 'Murica' broke my regex first). I also noticed that Aruba in css is broken, it has not direct link to imgur png, but link to imgur html page.

But there is the question where to host them (or host them somewhere at all). I don't know if endchan provides access to file uploads for board owners, I guess no. Another idea is to put files into css as "data-uri", but then css will be ~1mb size (although browsers cache them).

If data-uri is ok for everyone, I can easily make that css from this later. I also will post script of course, because it isn't good to trust anonymous person in internet, especially when browsers are prone to be broken with all this modern css shit.

Bernd 11/26/2018 (Mon) 15:21:27 [Preview] No.20781 del
Theoretically the image could be posted somewhere here (or uploaded as a banner or custom flag or whatever) then deleted. Since all files get put in the database and they are not immediately purged, the link will remain working (until it is finally purged, don't know the timelength but it may be months or forever, there are images whose posts were deleted more than 3 months ago and are still alive; example: /.media/b21d5bfef1c4770e435c17763a58fb4b-imagejpeg.jpg)
To do this it would probably be less tedious to make it a single image with each flag as a tile and then use the appropriate offset in the css (there are tools to automate this too).

How about asking on /operate/ if they can host the balls as well?
Also I tempted the inquire Slovenia if he would let us use the balls with hats he drew. That would add some unique flavor for the board.

Bernd 11/26/2018 (Mon) 18:41:27 [Preview] No.20793 del
yeah I have no tools to upload balls somewhere in BO panel or something, in current system they need to be hosted on external site
if we host them somewhere on endchan they'll get purged eventually or will probably have problems working properly given how often site has hiccups

Do you guys have any objection against data-uri solution?

It will be like that for each ball:

background-image: url(data:image/png;base64,iVBORw0KGgoAAAANSUhEUgAAABgAAAARCAYAAADHeGwwAAAABmJLR0QA/wD/AP+gvaeTAAAACXBIWXMAAA7EAAAOxAGVKw4bAAAA0klEQVQ4y7VUOxaCMBDc4aXCi1DiDeQ2HMnbYGknpbV3kHYsYjA/Nz4M2+XNspOdmQCSohUAtYEkNNwUh3fjep4e12yPRmLUW3vDRUROz1u6gdefI0IsUUmSUsUkTc3huRlN0tGNiTRuS5ISb6xhgQexobm6HI5FbGr7wHjzg6YCIDT5fc5iHr6a/C01cj8H0vkxHZb5E9+2Dz5zGEmsBKUHt8FsSyAijG9Qq4ZlzqSocsFKxX2GAzZFWvz+JvFTVMuLJEXxE98qGbz8u4e2+8/uBQx1hTp1mSepAAAAAElFTkSuQmCC)

At least it looks better than hosting images in posts.

Yes, it is embedded into the styleshit. The pointing URL's are replaced with those strings.

So this is "interesting". Since you asked, I was about to say that's probably the best solution and go ahead because even though the file will end up >1MB, most browsers will cache it, and those that don't still only need to download a tiny fraction of that (<100K) since the css transfer should be compressed. But then I try to verify that and see that while the "static" css are in fact sent compressed, the custom.css is not. That should be fixed in the board software.
So >1MB css each visit is not nice, but I personally know how to override it locally and since I only post once ina blue moon is really up to you to decide I just thought about mentioning it

Bernd 11/27/2018 (Tue) 00:20:21 [Preview] No.20810 del
It is base64 of file contents embedded in stylesheet. Browsers can open them in URLs too, you may try to paste this into url bar:


Yes, that's sad that they don't compress it. I guess the reason is that custom.css is the customized thing for each board that resides in database or somewhere like this, so they serve it with specific code.

Main downside of data-uri is that there are all countryballs in css, but only few balls actually required to display average page. Most of balls are never used. Although nowadays it is not really matter because few images on page already kill all size optimizations of css, and endchan is imageboard full of images.

Bernd 11/27/2018 (Tue) 00:35:01 [Preview] No.20811 del
So, here is the css and python script used to create it. I've did only country part of css, but I guess it would be easy to use it. I also had error in previous archive - USA file has extra quote at the end, it must be 'Murica, not 'Murica'.

(both files need to be stripped from .txt extesion because endchan doesn't allow to uploading these files in original form)

CSS is made by script, but I guess some images need update, and this script helps to generate css after these updates.

python balls.py --dir /path/to/balls/directory --css /path/to/custom.css
(--css is optional)

What does it do:
1) If css is supplied, it tries to download images from imgur that missing from balls directory. I.e. you have dir/Hungary.png and dir/Vatican.png, but css contains ball for Venezuela, so that ball will be downloaded as dir/Venezuela.png. Name for ball is taken from css rule "title" param.

2) It goes over images in dir, gets their content in base64, dimensions, format and name.

3) It generates css using data from 2, sorted alphabetically.

Why so much work? It allows to download images once (or use older archive), then replace countryball images, add new and remove old, then regenerate css part. You just need to pass --dir /path/to/balls/dir/ to script and it will generate new css from files (country name will be taken from filename).

Script requires python 3 and pillow library (PIL alternative, for images). I hope it may be helpful for those who want to add or edit existing balls etc (for example, adding hats). There is no proper error checking, and it may have bugs, sorry.

I see that some images are already bad, like Uganda, Nigeria and Mali (they are too big). Maybe using png optimizer or something may help, but it is already late here.

That's ok.

Actually, it isn't so easy to prevent browsers from doing this. Property word-wrap/overflow-wrap often doesn't work as intended, and forcing wrapping over letters also has some problems by itself (it starts wrapping on letters even when it can wrap over words). Meanwhile, browser and standard authors add more new shiny animations and shit.

>custom.css is the customized thing for each board that resides in database or somewhere like this, so they serve it with specific code.
Yea, but I think it's just an oversight. There's already code in place for storing and serving compressed data out of the database but it's not used for the custom.css. I looked quickly at the upstream version and it doesn't seem like this bug is fixed there either
So it's not 1MB then? All the better

That clipping there is caused by the

Yes, I was wrong, maybe it is Aruba downloaded as html page or so and became large part of it. Or I was sleepy, don't know how this happened, sorry.

>>do not ddos poor imgur
>that's a bit of an exaggeration

I have bad experience with mass parsing of search engines and other services (did it at work), so now I'm afraid of banning. Of course imgur wouldn't care, but I don't like bans.

So, if someone want, he may remove that sleep line.

I think those balls should be covered which frequents this place. For Polish I have an idea and for Danish I thought a knitted hat like picrel would fit. Or rather to Skandis as it would be the matter of changing colors. Also thought about Viking helmets so whatever our poster wishes. For Hungary I'm undecided, might go with the memes, might go with this Gárda hat or something similar "fog-cutter". I've no idea for Swiss and Brazil - the old Hue icon should go, me thinks. Ameriga can stay for now, I liek the fatball, but still would be better if it would get a ball that fit into the theme here.

All right. I'm not satisfied with the Hungaryballs, black hats just aren't really visible, not to mention the stache. I'll come up with something. But it seems all necessary balls are covered, so here's the plan:
1. tell me what Bernd would prefer, if no suggestion will be written, I choose one for that particular ball
2. rename properly the files chosen and put among the others, then with the python script made by Russian Bernd (thank you!) create the CSS by tomorrow evening, what then I post so BO could use it to update the board's CSS
3. From now on I'll work on drawing the other balls as many as I can (in sensible order), so finally there will be most with hats (all the sensible ones), and create the CSS for them as well, so sometimes in the future could be updated again
4. ???

For me Swiss helmet looks better than apple for aesthetic reasons, they both are good though. American MAGA hat is very interesting, looks fresh compared to old dull cowboy hat, so I'd vote for it (this is imageboard and 2018 after all).

Can't decide about Brasil or Hungary. For Denmark, maybe helmet is better, if other Scandinavians would have hats (someone must be a viking). For Taiwan third one is too stereotypical and also looks like Vietnam or so.

I don't really have serious arguments against any ball here, because they all are ok.

Here's two more for Hungary. The betyát hat is in lighter colors a little, the hussar has a csákó (shako) which I didn't want to overcomplicate with ornaments cannot be seen anyway. For now that seems to be the best option.

I made the original css, ripped and uploaded the balls to imgur. I left comments next to the countries I couldn't find balls for, there were 9 in total.
Bouvet Island, Cocos Island, Falkland Islands , French Southern Territories, Gibraltar, Heart Island and McDonald Islands, Saint Helena, Saint Martin, United States Minor Outlying Islands. I always planned on finding balls for them in the future but never got around to it.

Also, can someone explain to me how the base64 works? If we fully optimise the pngs to reduce size, does that shorten the base64 strings? I think I can crush these balls by about 10-30% in file size with optipng. <optipng -o 9 ./*.png

>I made the original css, ripped and uploaded the balls to imgur.
Good job.
>I always planned on finding balls for them
Easier would be to draw them.
>how the base64 works?
Image files contain a code for the computer to display as images. Raster and vector graphics do that differently but that does not matter. I think with base64 this code is translated into another what represents the graphics in a file which isn't an image but for example a CSS and which from the browser can read what to display. In our case, I guess probably there's more to it.
>If we fully optimise the pngs to reduce size, does that shorten the base64 strings?
It does seem so. I do that already. Images mentioned above (like Nigeria) were larger and their string were longer. In GIMP I tried to save them with compression but didn't help. Then I noticed they have different color scheme (something RGB-blablabla instead of RGB-default or something) and I changed it, saved with compression and that did the trick.
If you open up the different txt files posted ITT you can search those balls and compare the two. Now all are fairly short.
>I gave them the ball of their greater territory
That's fine. I doubt we're gonna have posters from those places anyway. And even from a bunch of real countries. I'm not sure Endchan would locate them properly.

Bernd 12/08/2018 (Sat) 06:15:10 [Preview] No.21093 del
As the name says it's an encoding in base or radix 64.
in base 2 each digit encodes 1 bit (or 1/8 of a byte)
in base 64 each digit encodes 6 bits (or 3/4 of a byte)
the long strings in the css file are the images themselves where each sequence of 3 bytes is represented by a corresponding sequence of 4 digits of the base 64 alphabet
all digits of that alphabet are in ascii which in pretty much all text encodings take up 1 byte per character
so by encoding in base 64 the size is increased by 1/3 but in exchange you gain the ability to embed it inside file formats which don't support raw binary contents, such as css
