If you've been paying attention to odili's twitter then you've noticed that we plan to do a "migration." We've sat on our broken database for too damn long and it's preventing the site from crawling out of the hole it's been stuck in since twenty-fucking-seventeen, so we're going to be starting from a clean database and importing stuff on a best-effort basis instead of praying that a hacked-together document extraction script will make everything all better.

You will keep your boards, accounts and banners. These should be the easiest things to dump by hand anyway.

The current plan is that around next week (June 15th) we'll be setting up a "new" instance of lynxchan and keeping the site you're using right now active. This is going to be a recent stable version of lynxchan, so it'll be faster and more stable than what you're using now even before taking into account the DB issues. Stay tuned for further details, but given the amount of archival-grade stuff floating around here I want to avoid the "surprise! that thread you bookmarked is gone" problem if at all possible. There will be advance warning.

Is this likely to lead to any improvements in the general look and feel of endchan? That's the biggest issue with using it right now. How open are you to making some changes in that regard? For example a better home page. I have plenty of suggestions that should be easy enough to impliment.

If by "improvements" you mean "kohlchan" then you're right because we're using kohlnumbra's frontend for the new site. Not that we can't bend it to our will later of course.

The big one is a better home page. Over on 8chan's /sudo/ there was a suggestion long ago to add board adverts:
>each BO could submit a paragraph describing their board and an image within certain limits (obviously going through a captcha to stop spam and maybe a limit of changing it once per month)
>adverts manually approved by global/site owner also for suitability (e.g. SFW only, actually descriptive)
>home page loads a few of these on each refresh just like how banners are loaded on boards currently
You can mess with weighting it by board's current traffic to avoid showing dedboards or ones that are already fast but that's just gravy. Shouldn't be too hard but it'll help smaller boards a ton.

On the boards page you could remove PPH, total posts and users as unnecessary information and organise it into 2-3 columns to show many more boards without excessive scrolling. This also helps smaller boards get some visibility. Obviously have the number of columns displayed change with window width which is easily done if you have even basic html/css competence. The goal should be to show as many boards as possible in as small an amount of space as possible.

[x] for hide thread/post is a bit vague, [-] makes more sense but that's really a personal thing. There's no easily visible button for report/global report, is that actually even an option?

Catalog could do with a report thread button and moving the hide thread button up to the end of the replies/images/posts line rather than at the bottom of the OP's content because it's hidden if you need to scroll. Also either force boards to add a missing image file, use a default one when one isn't selected or if the software doesn't support it add one because the catalog looks messy with threads without images.

In general just not deselecting files silently when a captcha fails. Short term just adding a visible reminder to the message you see when you fail a captcha saying 'remember to re-add your images if you had any' would be good because it's very easy to forget. Hiding the delete post box from the bottom of the page until someone actually presses the del button would neaten up the look of a the page immensely. Also for general neatness a margin after 'expand all images' at the top right of a thread is a tiny change but just makes the site feel less thrown together. Whem you resize the quick reply box the captcha stays locked to the left and nothing expands out after it. Adding just some plain background-coloured space after it sized to the window improves this optionally also centre the captcha. Use this extra space to add a reload button for the captcha to the quick reply window because that's missing.

Message too long. Click here to view full text.

Is there any way to check who's the board owner other than deletetion/ban log?
Was /AM/ given to someone that held it before or is it some new guy e.g. that one comedically challenged moron that kept whining about imaginary /librejp/ invasions and acted like a total know-it-all cunt despite entire board pretty much telling him to fuck off?
/AM/ was doing fine without a BO tbh.

Hi there.
Considering that this imageboard is under flow of refugees from lolifox.org - can you please remove restriction for max threads/hour or raise amount of max threads at least for some boards? Thematic, for example or userboards?
We need to create all threads from our old home and this restriction is too hard.

Also, it keeps saying that "flood detected", when i'm trying to create thread, if not about too much threads/hour for board.
Idk why. Maybe because i tried to create that thread with same text many time(but i wasn't successful even once yet).

This. BO can change certain restrictions. OP claim a board for yourself. I'm not sure about the process but if you claim it, but you don't get response, post here.

>>10361
I don't want to halt your enthusiasm but you can count on a few mysterious errors here. Most notable Connection failure when you post, or 500 error anytime else.
Endchan uses a server that was offered for free and we aren't on the top of the list when it comes to resources, also we're kinda running on a corrupted database, which might or might not will have an effect later. Nevertheless, if you want your stuff to be preserved 100% you might wanna backup it regularly.



PSA: Block bypass has been enabled for some IPs Balrog Board volunteer 05/17/2016 (Tue) 14:23:15 [Preview] No. 4154 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
I found where that spam full of random garbage is coming from. It doesn't have any discernable pattern so we can't use the autoban addon to remove it, but it's all coming from the same /24 range of IPs in Russia so we can just rangeban it. The problem is that Lynxchan currently only does /16 rangebans, which would result in substantial collateral damage. To counter this I'm enabling the block bypass function.

If you are rangebanned, you can use the block bypass function to solve a CAPTCHA and bypass the rangeban. This requires your browser to store a "bypass" cookie. No CAPTCHA will be required to post if your IP has not been subject to a rangeban. Block bypasses last for 24 hours or 50 posts.

I've already asked StephenLynx about adding a second, smaller rangeban level.

1: the captcha expiration is configurable
2: the FE can pre-solve a captcha to make it last for one hour.
3: the FE can access the cookie that says when the captcha expires so users can have it to auto refresh or at least know when it expires.

>What's the opinion of /librejp/
I think its a board that came from librechan after that site died. Remember people saying librechan was a pedo site that was somehow adjacent to masterchan another infamous pedo-den.
That explains why they might have thought it would have been acceptable to post that. Maybe the language barrier is why they chose librechan from whatever 2ch they came from thinking it was for freedom of speech.
I think they deleted the thread so that's good. Might want to translate posts with links in them to make sure they are not sharing it using another language to hide behind. I doubt they are doing that except its odd they just made that thread out of nowhere.

It wasn't. The pedospammer spammed there constantly and the admin never deleted anything. It had a /jb board but nothing close to even what 8ch had.

I know you wanna misrepresent but let's just correct some shit. Librechan did push the envelope of what's cp and not under dost this is how the site died. Librejp did have threads with this kinda content back on librechan.

As far as if it had stuff that was more or less illegal than 8chins pedo threads isn't even really debatable it was the 8chan pedo community migrating to librechan alot of the content was the same.

The site wasnt setup to be just for pedos and neither was masterchan.they both were supposed to be free speech protecting communities.but pedos are what the majority of the community did end up being and jp who migrated there during a site problem.


Explicit content of kids like candydoll was legal for an extremely long time only being made illegal relatively recently in japan. So since it's something that was legal in their country and the chan that they were at before this one of course they dont see an issue with it.

Any site that makes its goal to protect free speech to the highest degree will attract controversial elements it's a given.
>The pedospammer
There isnt some single guy out there spamming cp on altchans theres like a little handful of them.8 /b/ still gets cp spammed from time to time the same users who had a pedo thread there for like a year. That's the main group of cp spammers that and masterchan or as its know now clusters little clique. It's not organized it's a little group of shit posting pedos who hang out a few places.

And yes librechan had a pedo community.its weird how people just make up shit about altchans like some singular pedo spammer to create their little narrative

it's stupid because by your same argument (300x5=1500, i.e. maximal amount of attachments per posts) the result will be a thread with all attachments at the front followed by text-only replies
nobody wants that, the thread will be abandoned and a new one created
the same outcome (phasing out of threads) can be achieved by simply reducing the maximum amount of replies, and if that is not desired, the maximum amount of attachment per post can be reduced instead
