The great Endchan reconstruction has now officially begun.

We're now in the middle of our 3rd year. We're still one admin down, Balrog has also been extremely busy and while I've tried to be responsive, I've been less and less. So basically we've been 2 half admins of the 3 we're supposed to have. And after some discussion with Balrog, we think we've made an error; We never trusted any one with any power. We never took any chances growing our site. And I think for this site to continue, we're going to need to take some chances and recruit some fresh blood.

We want to build a team of passionate community members to improve the site.

We're looking for:

- Javascript Developers
- HTML developers
- Linux (Devuan-based) system admins with experience with pm2, node and mongo
- Janitors
- Creators (artists, designers, memes, music, videos, etc)
- Community builders

Why you should apply:
- perserve Endchan
- improve our community and site
- learn something

How you apply:

We all need to get to know one another. Some sort of chat is probably best. I'm thinking our IRC room is the most accessible and least bothersome. So for now it's the #endchan room on Rizon (irc.rizon.net, links on the top bar).

We understand we're probably going to make mistakes but like stated we're going to need to take risks to take us to the next level to ensure Endchan is going to be an institution. We plan to watch new recruits like a hawk and take action as quickly as we can. I think the worst that can happen is that we lose all the content, so I'm going to be working on a new backup system.

Please reply with your comments, questions, feedback and I hope to see some new nicks in the IRC room.

>HTML developers
This implies CSS knowledge, doesn't it? Because anybody can type HTML <"code">.

not necessarily. HTML is related but you don't need to know CSS.

Whatever you guys do, please keep the original platform accessible to most older txt browsers please. I don't want to have to rely on a bunch of vulnerable JS just to access this website.

Anonymous 07/24/2018 (Tue) 23:12:45 [Preview] No.9480 del
what browsers are you talking about anon?

Anonymous 07/24/2018 (Tue) 23:25:17 [Preview] No.9482 del
Well, I should have said browsers that don't rely on advanced JS or HTML5 platforms rather than "text based" ones. As long as I can still use the captcha and post here with Noscript activated I won't mind. I just don't want any new fancy unnecessary bloatware on the servers like most mainstream sites have now days. Keep it old school like image boards are meant to be.

if IRC chat is ded how should we go about applying?
should we message someone?

I might interested in this. It would be nice to see Endchan not just survive but thrive, and become and actual alternative to other chans and for this more people needed.
However with this constant Internal Server Errors it will be extremely hard, it is very alienating. Can't you or Balrog just marry some rich old hag and maintain a good server from her money?

for the love of fuck odili-- if you listen to any advice i've tried to give you on running this site take heed of this:
take on your admins. take any of them on. so long as they're not the 3 unbearable retards. >we all know who i'm talking about. literally anyone but them. you will destroy your chances of ever having a site with any noteworthy population

I have developer skills with android, web design, artwork design, and am also an aspiring ethical hacker, and hip-hop artist. Here is some of my artwork and music attached.

I would love an opportunity to work for your forum. Thank you.

It takes 2 years of working experience and 2 years of backup before trusting anyone with admin powers. Obviously those who visits for a longer period of time will be better.

Currently we're a charity case for Sibyl LTD, which as far as I can tell (Miao is welcome to correct me here) is basically a few dudes selling VPSes out of multiple colo racks in the Netherlands (one of the less blatantly totalitarian EU countries that have good Internet infrastructure) and Switzerland. He temporarily moved operations to all Switzerland after the first Article 13 scare so if that piece of shit actually gets ratified he'll probably move them again.

As such our current bill is rather indeterminate. I don't know odili's domain situation that well but endchan.xyz is paid up for two more years unless the registrar increases their rates and otherwise sufficiently cheap that I can reasonably pay it out of pocket. Steady money on top might convince him to devote more resources to our VPS that would otherwise go to paying customers. Since the primary symptom of the 500 error spam is a huge increase in disk activity, switching to an SSD might further mitigate the problem until Odili finishes his real fix for example.

Failing that any additional money you give us could be used as a "rainy day fund" for, say, a temporary frontend proxy if someone decides to shit fury on us again. With the server situation more or less stable we're more or less in the same situation as bibanon wrt donations: more money is always useful for when shit hits the fan, but the things we need that money can't buy are technical help, low-key shilling and admins that we can trust. If you want to put a big donation down maybe we could post an ad on BountySource or similar for a program to unpack LynxChan databases, that would probably make the DB rebuild happen a lot earlier than it normally would. (Hey, does NTTech's self-serve ad service still allow ads from competitors? That might be a funny way to get some people to migrate. "Endchan! 100% Jim-free!")
