If you notice something wrong that isn't "it's slow", post about it here. If something is fixed or changed, it'll be posted here.
>>14188 Seems like a personal problem

>>14189 >being this new That fat literal-cocksucker is everyone's problem. It's a mystery that the webring sites don't simply blacklist mark.fed.gov . Absolute reciprocation was never a requirement for the webring community. From the very beginning all site Admins were free to pick and choose who they would list. I assume smug were the faggots who let him in.
>>14191 I'm sorry you're having technical tissues. Have you tried turning it off and back on again?
>>18 Hello friends. I have no personal beef with 8chan or Mark, but I'd like it if you could consider temporarily dropping (and getting yourselves dropped) from 8chan's links on the webring. The reason being that Mark, 8/v/'s moderator, has been interviewed by HBO for an upcoming Cringementary about Qanon and left links to the new 8chan domain (not 8kun) in his bio as well as possibly parts of the interview itself. I'd prefer if the Cafe avoided the fallout from the swarm of journalists, triple letter agents and cuckchanners just because of one fatso's oopsies. Proof: https://8chan.moe/v/res/259671.html#q260047 https://archive.fo/vUuTX https://archive.ph/I6MyM However, understand that I don't believe that the actual 8chan owners (Acidman, codex) had anything to do with it, so consider it as a precautionary measure.
>>14193 This can be done easily by blocking access to webring.json from nginx. The only reason it hasn't been done yet that I know of is ignorance or malice.
>>14193 >oopsies You do realize 8moe is a fed controlled-op that glows like a thousand suns, right Anon? This wasn't a mistake. They intend to burn down every.single. imageboard site that's not under their thumb.
>>14195 I mean, it's not like there's hundreds of anonymous forums on the clearnet and even more so on onion links. The fat jew hasn't talked about the webring apparently, but the fact that his site may directly lead to this place is what worries me.

>>14193 >>14194 >>14195 >>14196 Our webring.json file will now return 404 until we learn enough to decide on a course of action. This will cause Anon.cafe to drop off other sites' webring listings. Our webring plugin is still functional and will continue to list other webring sites for the time being. Further information on this documentary situation would be appreciated.
>>14197 I suggest talking to Acid through their /site/ board.
>>13826 >purple not him but not everyone is native and most languages outside the romance languages don't have a word for purple, sometimes I accidentally call purple blue because of my native tongue.
>>14197 Alright fair enough. At least you've shown enough decency to pay some attention to this.
>>14197 Smug was talking about a way to blacklist specific websites and not be seen by them on /support/.

>>14193 But GGfag, isn't this proper journalism in gaming?!?!? On a serious note, if you read the /meta/ thread, he said he didn't namedrop .se, so you can request the admins temporarily take down (or better yet, dickroll) the .moe domain.
Open file (870.89 KB 1000x1360 black hole.png)
>>14202 That would require us to block the IP that a specific site uses to request the webring.json file, which isn't terribly reliable because sites like 8chan.moe may proxy their requests through intermediary servers with IPs different to those they list under their DNS, and those addresses may change anyway. We'll keep webring.json returning 404 until we see what effects the documentary's release have. I imagine the other site admins will coordinate their response (if any) in the "not-Discord" we declined to join. Hopefully the actual impact will be nil or net positive and we can go back to business as usual.
Can the staff see what's causing the issues on this thread? >>>/k/14116 My posts keep getting connection failed and then these show up 2-3 minutes later. No, my internet is fine.
>>14206 Had a look. We can rule out the usual thumbnailer abortion because your images aren't where aborted thumbnail images get abandoned. They haven't been registered in the media list either, even though the posts seem to have eventually gone through. The only thing I can think of on the server's end is that you tried to post at the precise moment when MongloidDB decided to try and swallow its own tongue. For what it's worth, the complaints about seeing "connection failed" messages only seem to be coming from your IP address. Other posts went through around the same time as yours without problem (not that this is a reliable indicator given our post rate). I know you've said that your Internet connection is fine, and I'm sure it is, but it's possible that your provider or one of their providers is munging your traffic to us somehow. If you still can't upload your images now, could you drop them on catbox.moe and post the links to them here? That will allow us to try and reproduce the problem, if it's image-related somehow.

>>14193 it's over,my days of shitposting is gone. What do I say to my parents? I was banking on the fact they can't read anything past road signs and basic instructions because they migrated from Europe but they could speak and understand English fine. My data is already encrypted so I could return when I find my own place. I am gonna look for /out/door hobbies I could do and a better job/look for more hours in the meantime because I just can't stay in my room all day anymore. FUCK YOU FUCK YOU FUCK YOU FUCK YOU.

>>14207 >file issue I'm beginning to think this is a FEC issue with my ISP, because it seems that uploading large files (>10mb) seems to cause a lot of the connection failed errors. Could the cafe try uploading something near the file limit themselves? If it's failing from your end then it's most likely an issue serverside, otherwise I think it might be the ISP being retarded. I'm also getting a strange issue where when I click reply to the capcha I'm getting mutiple answer boxes for the captcha to fill in. >pic related
>>14212 some web servers have a timeout to close long-running connections, is your upload speed particularly slow?
>>14215 >upload speed It fluxes from 2.2 to 0.8mb usually.
>>14216 pretty slow, best to ask anon admin if there is a timeout

>>14197 Well, this is what happened. More to come or so it seems.
>>14218 Haha holy shit how the fuck can they talk about cakekike being the 8/v/ BO and then show cuckchan's /v/ board. Good to see the documentary has been researched.
>>14219 They obviously (((chose))) him for the role b/c he's an absolutely disgusting, repellent retard. It serves their basic optics. cuck/v is loaded with trannies & stronk, independynts as per the plan. That wouldn't serve their purposes. My guess is that eventually they'll call every one of them LE EBIL WHITE NAHDZEES regardless of cakefat very obviously being a jew.

Testing timeout under other conditions.
>>14229 That was also a slowed-down upload made while the site's database was being backed up to a remote server. Whatever is causing the problems that >>14212 is experiencing, it doesn't seem to be slow upload. If their connection is unreliable or otherwise drops enough packets, that might explain why the connections seem to fail regularly.
>>14229 Kek, I enjoyed that one.
>>14221 Anon.cafe has been blocked by many ISPs for adult content too. Not that it really matters because who barebacks the internet these days?
>>14230 Okay. I seem to have narrowed it down. It's a combination of the cafe being slow (backup maybe) and some issues on my physical cable (seems like upstream SNR ratio is very poor in this entire area (my region) due to a node being down recently. Not sure why other sites weren't being affected. >video partially related
FIX IT
>>14241 Relax. They or their server vendor is obviously under attack r/n. The Anoncafe Admins have always been forthright with everyone thus far. Just be patient lad.

>>14241 We can't know what to fix if you don't use your words to tell us what's wrong. Everything's looking healthy to us. >>14242 We're not aware of any attacks in progress at the moment, unless you count somebody scraping all of our boards through our Tor endpoint as an attack.
>>14243 >unless you count somebody scraping all of our boards through our Tor endpoint as an attack. No not at all. If you look across the different boards, for the past 48hr+ a boatload of us have been receiving 'connection lost' type errors when posting. Double-posting has been common. I've generally been unable to post files most of the time.

>>14173 >>14172 >>14171 >>14170 After paying attention to download rates, I've determined that I can only download at 20kbps while on /k/. On /comfy/ and /meta/ I do not have this issue. When I specifically run speed tests while opening or uploading large files on any of the three boards I get a standard result of my ISP throttling to half speed, but half speed should be 10x that rate at 20mbps. That being said, I have found that I have latencies of about 25 seconds yes, seconds, not milliseconds on other anon.cafe boards, while I have latencies as high as 70-80 seconds while browsing or posting on /k/ specifically. That's extremely high. As a comparison with another webring board, when I browse Smug I have a latency of about 1-2 seconds on average. Obviously I expect Smug to be lower since they run American servers and I am in America, however I feel like 70-80 seconds (compared to the 25 seconds on any other board on the website) is extremely slow. In comparison, when I try to ping servers in Roma Italy or Helsinki Finland, I have latencies of about 2 seconds on average, as a baseline comparison. As a third comparison, I tested my latency over tor from a handful of relays, and found I had an average latency of about 2.5-3.5 seconds accessing /k/. This means it is faster to browse and upload/download files over tor than it is to browse /k/ on my bareback IP. So I suppose if it's not an issue on anon.cafe's end, that would implicitly mean I'm either being monitored by the feds while visiting anon.cafe/k, not that I really give a shit, or my ISP is specifically throttling anon.cafe/k specifically (which seems unlikely since they'd just throttle the whole website if they were going to throttle it). I would like to believe it is an issue on anon.cafe's end somehow obviously, but I am doubtful. Recent file uploads in case it might help with troubleshooting. https://anon.cafe/.media/7cdda1a75c1a0618d392026de8a2e4a87d6b0295401ba59d88d9cfa3b55b479d.mp4 https://anon.cafe/.media/f4a01c0fa0a160475e7d80074a5e9e1963bcfea7ecad3dbe1bd6117faa91331b.jpg

>>14245 Ah right, it's at the point now where files over 500kb won't even upload to /k/ any more for me.
>>14245 >>14246 >I would like to believe it is an issue on anon.cafe's end somehow obviously, but I am doubtful. Given what you've posted, we agree with you. >I've determined that I can only download at 20kbps while on /k/. On /comfy/ and /meta/ I do not have this issue. That's definitely abnormal. The slowest we've ever seen it over a congested VPN link is 200kB/s (around 204800kb/s). Testing from here shows no difference in speed between downloading files from /k/ and downloading files from any other board. >I have latencies of about 25 seconds yes, seconds, not milliseconds on other anon.cafe boards, while I have latencies as high as 70-80 seconds while browsing or posting on /k/ specifically. That's even more abnormal. For comparison, we get about 300ms ping latency over a congested VPN link. When you say "latencies", what exactly do you mean? Ping? Time from HTTP request to first response packet? Time from HTTP request to last response packet? For comparison, we see HTTP waiting times (request to first response packet) on the base board document request of about 600ms over VPN, with no difference between boards. (We consider this slow and are going to be changing some things behind the scenes to try and speed things up.) We get about 1000ms when doing the same over Tor (with Tor running through VPN connection). >it's at the point now where files over 500kb won't even upload to /k/ any more for me. We're seeing files coming through from others without issue, many of sizes much greater than that. >So I suppose if it's not an issue on anon.cafe's end, that would implicitly mean I'm either being monitored by the feds while visiting anon.cafe/k, not that I really give a shit, or my ISP is specifically throttling anon.cafe/k specifically (which seems unlikely since they'd just throttle the whole website if they were going to throttle it). Monitoring an individual's traffic in a way that creates delays of that magnitude would be quite incompetent. This is not to say your traffic isn't being inspected, just that if it is it's being done by the signals desk of the Keystone Cops. I assume you've tested this repeatedly to be sure that the differences in timing between boards are not coincidence. HTTPS requests conceal the requested path, so unless your HTTPS stream is being decrypted then there should be no way for a listener to know which board you are requesting. You might consider thoroughly comparing the HTTPS certificate fingerprint you get when accessing the https://anon.cafe address via Tor and via the link you suspect is being monitored. (We see SHA-256 17 D0 A7 9D 74 E8 F6 E5 F1 69 0F 89 84 BE 16 5E 66 3E 05 64 43 86 FF 2F 37 9C D0 55 53 2B 6D 72; future readers note that this changes with each Let's Encrypt renewal so don't freak out if it's different for you after some time.) If the fingerprint you get when hitting the HTTPS endpoint (not onion endpoint) via Tor is different from that you see with the normal method, then your HTTPS traffic is being MITM'd. If it's the same then you might still be getting MITM'd, but not using spoofed certificates, or you might be getting MITM'd so hard that onion routing itself has been compromised and turned against you. It's also possible that one of the networks between you and Anon.cafe is throttling traffic to our IP, our subnet, our ASN, or something else.
>>14247 I'm not very good with computers, so please excuse me. >Latencies I believe I'm referring to ping since it's in the 100-300ms range for other websites (even less for major ones) which seems normal for a ping, but ridiculously high for anon.cafe. I tried to ignore page load timers since those can be affected by outside factors. The HTML/web page of anon.cafe loads in the short 100-300ms ranges, it's just the media part that seems to refuse to load period. That's the joy of using an app to check since I don't know how to ping anything except IPs, so maybe I'm doing something wrong. As you mentioned, I've been testing this a few times at different points in the day to make sure it's not a fluke. >SHA256 fingerprint While I can locate this through tor (and it matches to the one you posted), I seem to be unable to locate this through my browser (I'm a pleb and use Chrome, right now that seems like an unrelated issue though). The SHA-1 certificates match though from accessing through a standard browser and accessing through tor: 026bccf4da2f9479ab3d3e833a6ebb8780498202 026bccf4da2f9479ab3d3e833a6ebb8780498202 This also matches up to my phone browser over 4G which does give me the SHA-256 fingerprint that's the same as yours, just as a control to make sure. I'm not sure if it matters but the R3 SHA-1 cert is: 48504e974c0dac5b5cd476c8202274b24c8c7172 And both are under the DST Root CA X3 certificate. That's how it's supposed to be, right? >It's also possible that one of the networks between you and Anon.cafe is throttling traffic to our IP, our subnet, our ASN, or something else. I'm starting to wonder since it makes no sense that tor accesses it just fine and my phone does fairly well with accessing it over 4G, but my bareback IP over my ISP can't without running into issues. Is there any step I could take for that like changing which DNS I go through that might help?
>>14248 Oh wow. I changed my DNS anyways from "use default" to using Jewgle's DNS and now it has a latency of 0.25 seconds and my speeds are no longer being throttled either. I swear to Christ I had this issue on my old computer that was using Jewgle's DNS servers though.
>>14249 Google saves the day again.
>>14247 >just that if it is it's being done by the signals desk of the Keystone Cops. Kekd. It's pretty obvious that the current USSA 'Administrations' insistence on loading up their intelligence agencies with mentally-deranged trannys, stronk, independynts, and Black and Brown Bodies means they are going to have a lot of basic, fundamental, competency issues. I would guess a similar thing is going on r/n in the EU, but the Bolsheviks are by far the worst at violating privacy. Actually, we can consider this a real blessing whenever White men abandon these agencies -- hopefully in droves. It certainly affords better protections for the average Joe Anon out there -- and even for the normalniggers too. >>14250 Heh, what could possibly (((go wrong)))?
>>14249 >dns change Please tell me you weren't using ISP default DNS.
>>14252 It's a new computer (only been using it for a month or so) and I completely spaced out on changing my DNS.
