Bugs, Issues, and Changelog Anonymous Board owner 09/02/2019 (Mon) 15:52:13 No.18
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.
An /otter/poster noticed that thumbnails on multiple post images were running into one another; a CSS problem that has just been fixed.

A board requestor noticed that confirmation emails were not working, a server configuration problem that has just been fixed. The behavior wherein failures to send confirmation emails still sets the confirmation email standoff timer has been submitted as an issue upstream.

Attribution for geolocated flags has been added to the attributions page.
Could it be that the board user counter is somehow stuck?
I'm inclined to believe /cuckquean/ has more than 3 users.

Also, a [Return] button for threads would be nice.

That got me too at first. The return button is actually at the top right of the screen on this software. Pic related.

Just noticed spoilers don't get spoilered in the front page preview. Might be an issue for spoilers.
Also, I think /cafe/ should be a SFW board.
>>34
Thank you for reporting it. I noticed too. It has been submitted as an issue upstream.

I had the same thought about /cafe/. /cafe/ is a SFW board in spirit, but I also felt that people should be able to post nudity behind spoilers if their discussion happens to involve it. /cafe/'s rules will be amended to allow mild nudity behind spoilers but no explicit content. I feel this still harmonises with the spirit of the SFW global rule. We'll see how it goes.
Some minor tweaks have been made to the appearance of the front page.

We're trialling only showing SFW images on the front page. Feel free to post in >>21 if you have an opinion about this.

The issue mentioned in >>20 has been acknowledged but refused a fix upstream. Since it is minor and can be worked around, it will not be patched on this instance.
I've noticed links vch.moe boards (/tv/, /v/, /bmn/, /sw/) are not on the boardlist. Not really a bug, just an oversight.

Don't know if this is the place to post it but I dig using the overboard feature for slow imageboards. Sadly this site doesn't show up from which board is each thread on this feature, I'd like it if this was addressed. Thank you very much.
>>53
It's mostly obvious which threads are from where, but yes that would be good. Also to be able to filter boards.
>>53
That's a good idea, but it cannot be done by altering frontend templates and requires the backend LynxChan engine to be modified. We'll consider installing a suitable addon to do this if one is created and passes scrutiny.

>>56
>Also to be able to filter boards.
As above, LynxChan does not natively provide this capability. It does have the capability for a SFW overboard, which will be enabled shortly.
The SFW overboard has been enabled and is now visible next to the normal NSFW overboard. Boards shown i the board list that have been pulled in from the webring are now marked by lozenges (thanks to CSS based on Robi Pires's XanderLynx fork of PenumbraLynx).

I'm not gonna post here using my clear IP.

I’m posting using a VPN right now. Maybe your VPN is used enough by spammers that it’s on a blacklist. Most VPN services provide lots of different servers in many different countries, so maybe try switching your public IP that way?

After careful consideration, changes have been made to the anti-spam and Tor settings.

Posters whose IPs appear on the Stop Forum Spam list may still post, provided they pass a block bypass CAPTCHA first. This should ease life for those whose VPN services are used by abusers.

Those using Tor may now post files.

If either of these changes are abused - and they may be, despite the best intentions of those who intend to use them properly - then this will be reconsidered. But for now, we've judged that the benefit to posters outweighs the risk.
>>113
I agree with this, thanks.
On the homepage, image previews are oldest to newest from left to right, but post previews are from right to left.
Why is it done this way? It's not a big issue, but it's a bit confusing.
We now run LynxChan version 2.2.14. Fixes from the latest version of PenumbraLynx have also been merged to our frontend.

IP address retention is a topic of great interest to privacy-conscious posters. By default, LynxChan retains IP addresses for all posts and uses it to display IP hashes to non-root users until those posts age out or are deleted. There is presently no way I know of to turn off this behavior or force storage of hashed IPs only (feel free to request this from LynxChan upstream), but Anon.cafe's instance will now purge a post's IP address information after the post is three days old. Unfortunately, this means that such posts will no longer display IP hashes to owners or volunteers. This should be long enough to assist volunteer and janitorial duties while still allowing posters peace of mind. Note that backups taken will still contain the unexpired IP address information that was in the database at that point in time, so the information will technically be retained until such time as the backup sets automatically age out and are deleted.

The about page has been updated with board creation and donation information.

The issue where spoilers are visible on front page post snippets (and other formatting marks are visible as plain text) was refused upstream as an "edge case", see https://gitgud.io/LynxChan/LynxChan/issues/25

That feature has to be added upstream in LynxChan itself. We can add it to our list but it takes a lower priority to other things in the anon.cafe queue.

We’re back from a spot of downtime that happened at exactly the wrong moment. Thank you for your patience. The issue appears to be the same one that until recently was affecting Julay.world. We’re back online and will be watching things to see if we can’t stop it from happening again.

That we do not have an IRC channel, a Twitter, nor any other form of out-of-band communication except an email address is intentional, for now.
>>194
Can't you ask Robi for the script that plugs back the board in case of downtime?
>>194
>That we do not have an IRC channel, a Twitter, nor any other form of out-of-band communication except an email address is intentional, for now.
What luck. I was just about to make to make a post asking about any out-of-band channels for these situations. I'll trust there's a reason for you keeping outside communications email only.
Julay appears to be down at the moment
Whats with the lynxchan bunkers constantly shitting themselves? Especially Julay, it's like the site gets a 502 error once a week.
>>203
In julay there's something called MongoDB that seems to create hiccups, which I haven't seen here. There's also the fact that Robi was changing the interface of lynxchan so that could also be taken into account.
>>204
I wonder why he even uses something that causes this much trouble.
>>204
MondoDB is the database that lynxchan uses, this website should use it too. I highly doubt that the database is the problem since MongoDB is used all over the web. The problem is Lynxchan itself. It seems to get issues when there's a lot of traffic, one of the problems they had previously (and may still have) was that expired captchas weren't being deleted, so the server was filled up with them. That for example is completely 100% lynxchan's fault.

>>204
It's very difficult to change the database system, you'd have to do modifications to the lynxchan software. Julayworld's admin instead chose to start developing his own imageboard software, which he plans to replace lynxchan with.

Lynxchan is easy to set up and has a good amount of features, but it's pretty shitty on the inside.
>>207
>Julayworld's admin instead chose to start developing his own imageboard software, which he plans to replace lynxchan with
I'd be interested to see what he comes up with. All I really want from an imageboard (community and moderation aside), is for it to not go offline all the time, and to not look like a cheap chinese knockoff of an imageboard instead of the real thing. 4chan's native Futaba/Burichan and Yotsuba/Yotsuba B themes are so simple that I don't understand how some people manage to fuck it up so hard.
>>208
>Futaba/Burichan and Yotsuba/Yotsuba B themes are so simple that I don't understand how some people manage to fuck it up so hard
People always want to do something new, but ignoring color swaps like the Tomorrow theme, it's actually surprisingly hard to improve the yotsuba look and structure.
>>203
It's under attack anon if you haven't figured that out for yourself yet. You're not the one doing it are you?
>>207
>was that expired captchas weren't being deleted, so the server was filled up with them.
over 1.5 million captchas anon? c'mon i'm pretty sure you can figure this one out for yourself?
all this gaslighting at robi's expense should be obvs bait to you guys.

>>208
>are so simple that I don't understand how some people manage to fuck it up so hard.
run a lot of imageboards yourself do you?
>>211
It's still Lynxchan's fault for not deleting them properly.
>>210
No, where did you get that idea?
>>214
I read that mongoDB was using up the ram in the server so it was possible that the script to delete them didn't work because of that.

That's curious. I'm on Tor and the only time the site gave me an error about an insecure connection was when their typo caused the SSL cert to be temporarily invalid.
>>245
Hello Anon. I am alive and have been watching over things all this time.

>>246
It is possible that your traffic is being intercepted and a dummy certificate used, you are on shared wifi that requires authentication through a captive portal, or something else. I have not seen any TLS or certificate errors except the recent expiration. Please do not ignore any warnings about invalid TLS connections. If you do see the warnings again, it might be a good idea to view the certificate presented to you (how to do this differs by browser) to see if that gives any clues
>>250
Glad to hear you're fine, thanks for the advice too. Could you make it so delisted boards don't have their posts appear on recent posts on the homepage and on the overboard? I appreciate it if its too big of a thing to ask for.

There seem to be a lot of broken/missing thumbnails and I have to hit refresh several times to make them show up.
>>500
They never show up for me, no matter how much I refresh.
Even worse, it's every image, not just most of them like in your image
>>545
Yep, the refreshing just breaks the CSS after a bit.
>>500
>>545
>>546
You're hitting the rate limiting that was put in as a pre-emptive measure against non-captcha request flooding. I've increased the limit a bit; you should no longer notice anything unless you try to load a few 500-image threads.

>>545
Refreshing more will actually exacerbate the problem, especially if your browser is not caching the thread's thumbnails.

>>546
Same for you. Constant refreshing will just be interpreted by the server as you trying to overload it, and it'll cut you off.
>>547
Hey, not sure if you use haproxy for that ratelimit or not, but you can solve the issue of too many requests breaking long threads by making the ratelimit per url path+IP instead of just IP. Of course that means an attacker could use a shotgun approach and attack many pages at once, so you should still have a ratelimit for IP or connection rate, but with a higher value. An example/haproxy config snippet below:

[code]
##### Track client by base32+src (Host header + URL path + src IP)
stick-table type binary len 8 size 100k expire 10s store http_req_rate(10s) #request rate over last 10 seconds
http-request track-sc0 base32+src
acl rate_abuse sc0_http_req_rate gt 50 #50 requests/10s (5 req/s) PER-PAGE
###### Deny if rate abuse
http-request deny deny_status 429 if rate_abuse

### Optional, some other ways to deny request instead of http-request deny
#http-request tarpit if rate_abuse
# will keep the connection busy but send no data until timeout,
# then respond with 500 server error to make bots think they took your site down.
# very effective against very dumb robots, moreso than http-request deny,
# but can force haproxy to keep an insane number of connections open while tarpitting,
# so make sure you also have a rule preventing too many concurrent connections per IP

#http-request silent-drop if rate_abuse
# similar to tarpit, but makes haproxy completely forget the connection without notifying the client.
# can handle even more traffic than tarpit, but may have issues with stateful firewalls not closing
# connections properly so beware.

I changed my password and now I can't login to my account anymore. Does this have to do with the spam or something?
Ongoing spam and DoS attacks from one of the attackers we’ve seen before. Nothing particularly exciting or different about this one except they’re paying more money to execute it.
>paying real money to put spam into a Kazakh hide carving exchange

As with many things of this type, enough money and autism is enough to temporarily force us offline. We’ve enabled captcha for all posts. Attacks on the captcha system as soon as we forced its use mean that sometimes a captcha may not appear immediately; please be patient.

Board owners, we advise limiting the number of threads created per hour to avoid slide attacks should the spammer decide to spend even more money lol and time lol on this.
>>10413
Stop offending me. I don't like how you are using the word autism to offend me.

You're going to attack no matter what so they may as well tell the truth about you, right?
After some downtime from the spammer attacking our captcha, we're back! We're now running LynxChan 2.3.6 with several add-ons to improve captcha generation and improve our resilience against the attacks we've seen up to now. Thank you to Stephen Lynx for back-porting this functionality to the 2.3 line of LynxChan. We're also running a slightly modified version of the XanderLynx front-end by Julay.world's Robi Pires. Please continue to complain when things break and we'll see what can be done. We'll continue to deal with these attacks if and when they recur. Enforced per-post captcha will remain on for the time being, which is a little bit of a pain but please bear with it for now.

When viewing threads with the overboard or the index some old posts (specifically OPs, though not all OPs) correctly append multipleUploads to the div class but break when opening the threads.

We're now on LynxChan 2.3.7 and no longer have enforced captcha for every post. The first time you post in a while or after a certain number of posts you'll have to fill in a captcha. Unindexed boards will no longer have their posts show up on the front page or overboard.

Beyond that, it's hard to fix or trace anything if we don't get information beyond "it's broke and I want it fixed". If we can't reproduce the problem we can't attack it. >>10564 LynxChan takes spam IPs from a widely-distributed blocklist. Your VPN's IP has probably ended up on it. You can still post if you solve the CAPTCHA when challenged. Do you not get prompted to get a block bypass? In the reply form, if you click the "More" arrow, you'll see an option titled either "Make sure I have a block bypass" or "Use bypass". Check that option and you should be challenged to solve, after which you'll have a block bypass and can post.
>>10543 Newer versions of LynxChan (like ours ha) limit the number of authenticated queries to make sure that the service can't be DoSed using backend functions or have accounts be bruteforced. Wait a couple of minutes and you should be able to put your admin actions through.

Hey owner guy I see you're indexed on the Jewgle Please add a rule to your robots.txt to not do so, it's the death of imageboards when they can be searched for and the first result is some CP spammer.
>>13259 >it's the death of imageboards when they can be searched for and the first result is some CP spammer Wouldn't a CP spammer be bad news regardless of whether Google indexes here? Why the worry over the Jewgle in particular and not Bing or DuckDuck or Altavista?
>>13259 Faggots like this is why I love modded search P2P search engines that ignore robots. >>13260 It makes no difference these days. Even if a site isn't indexed, references on related sites to that content will make it onto the search engine, so when someone searches "alternative imageboard list" or something in the future, you'll get posts from people on reddit that contains your site.
>>13260 Well, on a board that I used to own some boomer woman left her own email and personal info thinking it was a private forum after looking up unrelated shit from the Jewgle. You never know these days what kind of dumbasses may jeopardize your website. CP spammers exist, true, but they are a known threat. Protecting yourself from the unknown is more important. >>13269 >P2P search engines Like what?
>>13270 >Like what? Yacy. It works well, but its closed source and developed by Germans, so its by default not trustworthy when it comes to upholding freedom of speech.

I've been getting this: Secure Connection Failed An error occurred during a connection to anoncafe.org. PR_END_OF_FILE_ERROR on waterfox. I've only used that browser for the last two days, so I don't know since when that's a problem. Tor Browser works.
Video playback on this chan is slow and glitched out. I have never experienced this on any chan or website before this (running i7 quad core and plenty of ram). WTF?

>>13331 the biggest issue is there is no support
The downtime that happened just now was an issue at our host’s end. We contacted them and they fixed it. Business as usual. We already have a fallback server so we’ll be looking into putting a status announcements page there shortly.
>>13342 >We already have a fallback server so we’ll be looking into putting a status announcements page there shortly. that's good news to hear, thanks Admin.

Are you guys able to accept BAT? I have a bunch of fun bucks from Brave ads and want to donate them to the website's upkeep.

I've just noticed that the aa tags don't seem to work - it wraps the text in <span class="aa"> tags, but there's nothing in anon.cafe's CSS that affects the .aa class as far as I could find. You can fix it with: [code].aa { font-family: IPAMonaPGothic, "IPA モナー Pゴシック", Monapo, Mona, "MS PGothic", "MS Pゴシック", submona; font-size: 12pt; line-height: 12pt; }[/code] and maybe adding https://github.com/pera/submona-web-font to the site, which is a lightweight public domain substitute for "MS PGothic" ("MS PGothic" is the traditional font for Japanese websites and Shift JIS art). Also while I'm here, you can fix the settings window width resize bug (where the CSS and JS textboxes go outside the settings window if you drag them out) by removing: [code]#watchedMenu, #settingsMenu { width: 500px; }[/code] and adding: [code]#watchedMenu, #settingsMenu { min-width: 300px; } .settingsContentPanel textarea { min-width: 300px; }[/code]
>>13469 Also, enabling code tags on the /meta/ board might be a good idea.
Hey lads, Julay fixed their webring entries about a month ago or so but the julay.world domain is still blacklisted. Can you get around to un-blacklisting it? Thanks.
To whoever keeps global reporting posts on /fascist/, please note that our Global Rules and the 2012 Criminal Code of Romania specifically mention threats of violence against specific individuals, which is to say "threatening an individual with the commission of an offense or of a prejudicial act against them or other individual, if this is of nature to cause a state of fear". Also, a board owner who posts about identifying you and banning you based on your IP hash is not doxxing you. Doxxing is specifically about posting the personally identifiable information of others. A salted IP hash cannot be used to identify you as a person and is not personally identifiable information. And no, their referring to 'nuking' your ability to post is not a threat of real-life violence against you. We don't like /fascist/'s glowposting any more than you do, but that doesn't mean that we take kindly to people attempting to spuriously enlist our global administration and volunteers against them.

Hello, owner of /loomis/ here One of my users lamented that the files in his posts keep getting deleted. Is there a data usage error or something?
>>13490 No, not at all. We can see large images and files zipping into the database. You're talking about >>>/loomis/804 right? A 10.46MB PNG shouldn't be causing problems. We can't see anything in our logs (thanks LynxChan), but if I had to guess, it might be the image's large pixel dimensions 11848x6152 somehow mucking up our thumbnailer. Perhaps they might try chopping the drawpile canvas into smaller parts e.g. quarters, and see if that works?
>>13491 >Perhaps they might try chopping the drawpile canvas into smaller parts e.g. quarters, and see if that works? I'll tell 'em, thanks buddy.
>>13238 it might be worth mentioning that fatpeople.lol got into trouble right after its Admin added fatchan domain. It seems that ~chan is "blacklisted" word. (sorry, I'm just worried) >>13488 it might be related, but someone (an outsider) is, apparently, trying to cause some kind of schism between /fascist/ and /comfy/
>>13488 Quick question that comes more out of a spirit of curiosity than anything else - if Anon Cafe bases a large percentage of its global rules on Romanian law, and justifies certain decisions in light of Romanian law, how is that Holocaust denial - something which appears to be illegal in Romania - is permitted to be posted on Anon Cafe?
>>13493 >it might be related, but someone (an outsider) is, apparently, trying to cause some kind of schism between /fascist/ and /comfy/ You mean the ""schism"" (which was really just five people yelling fuck off to political rabblerousers) that happened a few months ago and that no-one really cares about after the delisting? Ask the /comfy/ BO, I assume they can confirm this for you. This has nothing to do with /comfy/. It's an /islam/ poster mad that they keep getting raided by one edgy /fascist/. The /islam/ poster is a shit-stirrer who got mad after they got raided again earlier this week and they correctly pointed out that your board is not well liked by others, mostly due to being a liability (extremist political board) with a history of attracting crossboarders who unnecessarily bring up divisive politics, using /comfy/ as evidence. They're exaggerating but I wouldn't be surprised if your board was the reason /comfy/ is now delisted. Someone (false flag or edgy troll, who knows) then trolled the overboard (mostly /islam/) for two minutes after /fascist/ noticed the /islam/ post and got defensive because they weren't aware and understandably felt attacked. ( https://anon.cafe/.global/logs/islam/2020-08-12.html ) >inb4 didnu You didn't but someone on your board did start shit: https://anon.cafe/islam/res/1.html#45 (dated 16th July) https://anon.cafe/islam/res/1.html#72 (replies to one of the Tarrant posts from this troll https://anon.cafe/.global/logs/islam/2020-07-31.html )
>>13497 /islam/ deserves it given how they keep forcing their religion in threads on /fascist/
>>13496 Emergency promulgation not the same as law code tho. Are you the butthurt obsessive faggot who keeps submitting different global reports against /fascist/ that got mentioned in >>13488?
>>13498 Which would imply /fascist/ deserves it given how they keep forcing their ideology in threads on the rest of anon.cafe Trying to justify any of the raids isn't going to solve this problem, anon.
>>13499 I read the code that anon was referring to and it specifically mentions "in public". I doubt a public internet server really qualifies.
Hey there, after reading some of the troubles about that image in /loomis/, i had some questions about limits: - What's the official size limit? i have read 20 and 18 but i remember seeing an 20.3 upload or something around that. I mean i don't want more, just wanted to know and avoid shortening an image or webm if they are 20.1 or 21mb. - Are there actual resolution limits in images? I can try uploading some to know a certain limit. - Character limit is 5120, i remember another webring member having 32000+, is that a software issue or a size/server limit? - What's the image or post limit in a thread by default? the BO settings don't seem to mention them. Thanks.
>>13502 >What's the official size limit? 20MB. >Are there actual resolution limits in images? I can try uploading some to know a certain limit. No. When one of /loomis/'s drawpile canvases failed to upload consistently we suggested that one of the causes may have been its large resolution overwhelming imgmagick but the truth is that we don't really know because LynxChan isn't telling us and we've not tested exhaustively. >Character limit is 5120, i remember another webring member having 32000+, is that a software issue or a size/server limit? That's configured on our end. We chose this limit to help threads not become bloated, unloadable messes, and for other reasons. >What's the image or post limit in a thread by default? the BO settings don't seem to mention them. 500 posts before autosage. No configured reply limit per thread at the moment. 50 threads per board.
>>13505 >No configured reply limit per thread at the moment. There seems to be a 1000 reply limit by default.
>>13491 >We can't see anything in our logs (thanks LynxChan) * `verbose`(Boolean): if true, will activate all verbose modes. * `verboseApis`(Boolean): causes both the json api and the form api to print what is being both input and output. * `verboseCache`(Boolean): causes the cache handler to print reads and writes. * `verboseGridfs`(Boolean): causes the gridFsHandler to print information about it's operations. * `verboseQueue`(Boolean): causes the message queue to print information about it's operations. * `verboseMisc`(Boolean): causes any message being output outside of the other modes to be printed. * `verboseGenerator`(Boolean): causes the cache generator to print information about it's operations. you also can't read the manual
>>13508 Calm down; one doesn't keep all verbose modes on at all times because one normally expects failures or other exceptions to appear in a log even when verbose mode is not set. If our /loomis/ friends want to make available a copy of them problematic file for testing then we'd get somewhere, but until then we're not served by having the verbose modes vomiting into our logs at all times.
MP3 files suddenly stopped working. Says they're "not allowed" by the server.
The shit-stirring has been deleted. The IP that posted porn on the SFW board has been banned. /meta/ is not for petty snits.
Some downtime in the past few hours; there seem to have been some memory issues, possibly at our host's level. We'll be keeping an eye on things; please post here with times if you experience a period of downtime.
>>13584 I experienced downtime 4 days ago for at least 4 hours, then 2 days ago for at least half of the day and yesterday it kept going all the day. Today it seems to be continuing being down, i started using Tor a couple of days ago to see if it was my area and sure enough i could connect, with a german connection, but with a dutch one i could not. In some boards i'm seeing people commenting about them thinking Anon Cafe is not on the webring anymore because they cannot see it in webring button, also some /k/ users talking about their hard time accessing the site.
>>13587 Thank you for the information. If you notice further downtimes from your end it would be helpful if you could provide the times so we can correlate it against other observations. Sometimes, what looks like downtime is inter-provider issues or blocking. >sure enough i could connect, with a german connection, but with a dutch one i could not. That sounds like ISP-level or country-level blocking, which we cannot do very much about.
So how can we stop waves of spam from flooding our boards? /shelter/ /fascist/ /k/ Probably soon to be more.
>>13591 >/k/ I've noticed bot spam that is identical across many imageboards tends to land there. I'm not sure why, but non-political spam is easy to identify there. >/fascist/ Personally, I've almost only seen trolling. On that board, trolling is inevitable. They hate lots of people and lots of people hate them, just like most political sites. Do you mean the shitposting or something else? >/shelter/ I haven't seen any, unless you include trolling (including an attack spambot) as fallout from inter-site drama.
>>13592 Disregard this, I suck cocks. I haven't been here in a few days and checked the board. You're right.
>>13592 /fascist/ got the same bot spam as /k/, look at the logs and what the BO said in the QTDDTOT there https://anon.cafe/.global/logs/fascist/2020-09-08.html

>>13589 It's still down in taco land, the U.S. detects it as up but in both cases i can barely load it, pic related. In the Tor connections it's a mixed bag, Germany and now Austria access it easily but the Dutch one either does it just as well or doesn't. >what looks like downtime is inter-provider issues or blocking. Pretty bizarre from my end, one of the few good things in the land of the sahuaro is how nobody regulates the internet so blocking the cafe out of every site out there seems very strange. Good luck with those issues tho.
>>13594 >/fascist/ got the same bot spam as /k/ Recently, yes. That was clearly a targeted attack on this site reporting aspie comments. I was talking about casual ad spam from months ago that hits hundreds of imageboards.>>13594
>>13596 >That was clearly a targeted attack on this site reporting aspie comments. Maybe /fascist/ should have not banned a certain anon for having assburgers or using the integralist flag.
Posting here as >>13345 said so. Another blip of downtime, from around 17:55 - 18:05 BST Might have started earlier, hadn't refreshed the page I was on for a good half hour or so.
>>13598 Also, I'm only posting these as I'm assuming it'll be of some help, if you're aware of the blips and don't need someone reporting each one specifically please go ahead and tell me to fuck off.
>>13597 They didn't ban him for that they banned him for being a constant annoyance and stirring shit, that he has assburgers and uses the integralist flag is a component of that but not even close to the main reason.
Site's become impossible to use desu
>>13602 /cow/ has taken an interest in this place. First come the spam bots, then the DDOS, then the owner gets doxed.
>>13603 >then the owner gets doxed. Did he really?
>>13604 I actually misread that I think, I think you're saying that is the intended progression. By bad for being a tard.
>>13604 He will if the pattern holds up. Haven't you been paying attention to what happened to PLW and all the others? One by one webring sites are being deplatformed and their boards gobbled up by tvch. They're already being "helpful" and offering shelter to /k/. I forgot a couple of other steps in the pattern. There will be floods of child porn and then there will suddenly be helpful 'anons' offering to be janitors.
>>13606 Note all the janitors of /cow/ and tvch are the same people. Even the head admins are the same. Robi does the tech support for tvch and the main global vol is a guy known as Hanging_Flesh.

I have and i did but because i used extensively one of the boards in dire need, not because i wanted a position. Still, it is a solid fact this performance issue started the same day some boards/topics at ALog started migrating here. At this point either /cow/, the goons or the feds via outsourced shitpost farms are at fault, any clue must be taken into account to know what the admin should or should not do. >>13608 It seems that's against the interests of the west's lobbying institutes.
>>13589 >>13595 What the hell, now a lot of people are having trouble but today is the first time i can connect without problems.
>>13610 > today is the first time i can connect without problems. It's pretty spotty. I've been able to get a post in here and there every half hour or so. I expect it to go down again soon.
>>13609 >Sounds plausible but also sounds like some tengu propaganda, CP at /v/ was tengu's fault more than any kind of /cow/ agent. Starting to get sick of hearing about some fag that fucked up when he was bullied to be honest. Hanging_Flesh has been a major problem for a year now and killed three boards on julay long before that happened on /v/. The only difference is the damage was contained on slower boards and Robi was able to cover for him. The guy is a real problem and his name just keeps popping up everywhere. He was recently added as an admin on tvch right around the time logs were disabled. Every time anons point out what is clearly going on a thread gets flooded with accusations of them being the same three or four people. I'm sick of a handful of spergs ruining everything for everyone. I'm going to call out obvious subversion where ever I see it. The Dolphin tripfag has been a thorn in the side of the webring for a year now. You can watch Hanging_Flesh and all the other vols on tvch+julay holding casual conversations with him everyday on cytube if you care to go lurk it. All these people admit to using discord. This is unacceptable and the same problem with the janitors on cuckchan, 8kun, and many other places. If they want to be a big gay friend club no one should stop them but when they're actively deplatforming boards they don't control it's a problem for everyone. All tripfags should be bullied without mercy and punished for their crimes.
Thank you for your patience, everyone. We're seeing network activity that might suggest an upstream problem but haven't been able to decisively pin down the problem yet. During one of the outages we have been able to observe, we saw high levels of packet loss but our own server seemed to be purring along fine. We'll gather some more evidence and be in touch with our provider. We've seen several boards erupt with similar posts to the effect that anon.cafe might die and those boards should consider what to do in this case. We plan to keep anon.cafe very much alive, but if history has taught us anything it is that boards should always have a bunker and an evacuation plan. >>13598 >>13599 Thank you, Anon. This is very helpful. >>13602 What symptoms do you see? Does it simply not load? Does it load slowly? Does it load but you can't post? What happens when you do try to post, if so? >>13610 >now a lot of people are having trouble but today is the first time i can connect without problems. This is exactly the kind of mysterious symptom we can't explain. From our server's perspective, we're not seeing anything in the logs indicating starvation, restarts, crashes, and so on. That it's up for some and down for others is very strange. >>13611 So for you, it loads but you can't post?
>>13613 Glad to see that you really care about the cafe, this place and smug are all I use. Also it's nice to have site owner that doesn't just give up when problems come up. Wish you guys the best of luck to find the problem.
>>13613 >What symptoms do you see? For me, the only problems have been that it either takes a very long time to load, or my browser tries to load this site and it just times out after a minute or two and says that it can't connect. It was like this regardless of what I was using, phone, Tor or just regular browser.
>>13613 Update: We've been able to confirm that our server's upstream network interface is periodically experiencing bursts of packet loss ranging from moderate (experienced as the site being slow of choppy) to severe (where it's unusable) to total (when the site appears down). We've alerted our provider and are waiting to hear back from them.
>>13616 Not anyone who's posted ITT so far, but thanks for the update. I hope they're able to resolve it, lately it's felt like half the time I hit reply it doesn't go through (like literally just now lol), and threads I have open are constantly failing to auto-update. Speaking of which, is there any way you could make threads start auto-updating again once the site comes back online? Whenever the site goes offline, it will stop attempting to auto-update, and I have to manually hit refresh to get it going again.
>>13613 >>13616 Good luck Admin. I like Anoncafe quite a bit in general. Please do your best to keep it afloat.
>>13615 I've also been getting this over the last week or so but only for a few hours at a time and there was a period a few months ago where I couldn't load it at all for about three weeks.
>>13620 What is your problem? Can't you find something useful to do with your life? I can not believe anyone would devote themselves to doing this for free for over a year.
>>13621 Just let him seethe in silence
>>13616 A note that there also seems to be some issues connecting from a US Atlantic direction network. The host point that is causing issues when I test this end is/are nodes in DEUTCHLAND/Switzerland that keeps timing out. It may be worth it avoid nodes from the baltics and nordic states since they seem to be an issue (Telia Carrier). However, that will also make the site slower.
>>13620 Fuck off. That's not my real email.
Ban evasion. Original ban was for posting links to a directory of child pornography.
>>13620 That's the email of the guy who kept saying he had dolphins dox for sale.
>>13621 >>13624 >>13625 It is the email that the BO of /fascist/ uses to conduct board business. Just more shitstirring

Your webring plugin doesn't seem to be working and I can't figure out why.

I just changed the bump-limit on by board from 500 to 750, but the bumplocked thread from when the limit was 500 does not change. Unfortunately there is no option under my tools that allows me to un-bumplock threads. Is there a way to do this at all?
>>13662 I've noticed the same phenomenon affecting newly-uploaded banners on 8moe. Seems like it's affecting multiple LynxChan sites. Acid and I narrowed it down to a problem caused by adblockers, but we're unsure why it only affects new banners. I'm going to bring it up with Stephen when he's online tomorrow and see if there's anything that can be done in LynxChan to mitigate. For now, try whitelisting anon.cafe in your adblocker and see if that fixes it for you.
>>13662 >>13664 Following-up: Stephen put in a request with EasyList and they've removed a filter, so this should be fixed once they push an update.
>>13665 They did right away, all users have to do is to clear their adblock cache.

>>13767 Works for me on Tor. If you're using Quick Reply on boards that have per-post captcha enabled, you need to click to open the "> More" section to the left of the reply button to see the per-post captcha. Nasty little UI detail, but that's how you do it.
Anon.cafe is going into maintenance mode shortly so that we can do the necessary things to restore /k/ without making the situation worse. Posting will be disabled sitewide for the duration. Apologies for the inconvenience.
>>13769 We're out of maintenance and /k/ has been restored. Please expect a little more disruption in the coming days as we work on other things in the background. As always, please ensure your boards know their fallback routes and bunkers if they have them.
>>13771 Can we leave the webring please?
>>13772 Explain, please.
>>13773 Glad to see the weapons board back, but whos the current owner of it?
>>13774 User "activeshooter", who was the original Board Owner. Please refer to >>>/k/ for further inquiries about /k/ operations, leadership, volunteers, et cetera.
>>13773 I've written a short poem about it here >>>/shelter/2820 but to elaborate more, it always seems to let in shady characters to try and mess with our stuff. It's evident the webring has just turned into a stinking heap and while having had its positives, some people are clearly just after fame and recognition and will take any opportunity to "make a name for themselves". If anything I think it would be better to implement a system of "board friendship" like /kind/ are using already.
>>13776 That was a nice poem. We accept your proposal as having been made in good faith. We'll consider the matter further once we have space for contemplation. At the moment, we consider this an incident that arose from boards within Anon.cafe rather than being a matter between webring members or due to the existence of the webring itself.

Anon.cafe will be going into maintenance mode shortly from 2020-12-12 1200 UTC+0 for upgrade work. Posting will be temporarily disabled sitewide during this time. Apologies for the short notice.
>>13783 Huh? Upgrades?
>>13783 Alright, we're back. It turns out that everything runs the slowest it possibly can right when you need it to be speedy. >>13784 Yeah. Upgrades. We're now on LynxChan 2.4.10 and the DoS exploit that we were hit with a few times over the past few days should now be mitigated. Board owners and volunteers, you will notice that your settings page has changed. Ordinary posters shouldn't notice anything much different. One new feature in 2.4 is being able to ban and delete by block bypass ID. This means that, for example, board staff can now distinguish between different Tor users. Note that all a Tor user need do to shake this off is reset their session and get a new block bypass, so please don't expect banning by block bypass ID to be a panacea. We have the option of allowing board volunteers to change board settings. At the moment only board owners can change board settings, but if we globally enable the option we can allow volunteers to do so as well. This would mean, for example, that volunteers could enable their board's per-post captcha or lower thread limits in the event of a spam or sliding attack. What do we think - shall we enable this option, or leave only Board Owners able to change board settings?
>>13785 One more thing: If your board uses custom CSS, you might want to check to make sure it hasn't broken. If you see something broken on a board with custom CSS, use the drop-down menu at the top to switch back to Yotsuba B or Tomorrow and ask the board owner to fix their CSS. If you see anything else that's broken, please post about it here with details (what's wrong, what's it doing, how would someone else make it do the same thing, what do you think it should do, screenshots, etc.).
My CSS has to be changed slightly since image URLs have changed. However I get the "Board not found" error when I try to update CSS. I remember this as a Lynxchan bug but I don't remember how it's resolved. Does admin have to change a setting?
I noticed something strange going on, ever since the maintenance downtime every time i check the webring button some 8chan.moe boards appear, how do i fix this error?
>>13786 I found that some CSS lines with the "!important" tag in the global theme are now in their full intended effect and override any changes made with a custom CSS. This for example conflicts with the post/report button text color. There must be a way to add some line to act over it from the custom theme but i didn't find any, at least as an amateur. >ask the board owner to fix their CSS The admin controls the global.css so here i am :^) Also for some boards that use images hosted here as background elements, i think all links changed so updating said URL directions should be enough.
>>13785 >What do we think - shall we enable this option, or leave only Board Owners able to change board settings? Not if that also means they can enable early-404s as well. That would be a disaster for a slow-moving board if it were used -- either intentionally or inadvertently. Otherwise, if the two aren't necessarily linked together then I think it would be good to allow vols to manage things better during an explicit attack against a board. >t. /robowaifu/
>>13789 This. I wonder how they are being listed on the webring in the first place. They are plainly enemies of us all.
>>13794 Broadly speaking Zzzchan by nature of its guests is also an "enemy" for spamming 2 webring sites and hosting one that caused some mayhem in the same 2 sites too, along with the Animu vs. Smuglo.li debate. I do not know the criteria for the webring button plug but it certainly isn't an association of friendly board runners, at this point Endchan being included is not farfetched either in terms of consistency.

>>13789 >>13794 It looks like 8moe decided to run the webring plugin; Smugloli and Zzzchan's webring.json files show that they've added 8moe as a direct peer (in "following"). Since they picked up 8moe as a peer, they report it to all the rest of the webring peers (including Anoncafe), who then treat 8moe as a peer (in the "known" field of webring.json) and list their boards unless individual sites choose to blacklist 8moe. The webring system by default trusts inclusion by one site as inclusion by all. 8moe's webring.json file at https://8chan.moe/boards.js shows that they directly peer with Smug and Zzzchan, but they aren't picking up and peering with Smug and Zzzchan's peers like they should (their "known" field is empty) and they're only listed Smug and Zzzchan's boards which isn't normal. It's possible that they've written their own version of the webring plugin that - either deliberately or by accident - doesn't implement full peer discovery. If it was accidental then maybe they'll get around to fixing it. If it was deliberate you can expect that they will make their usual smokescreen excuses for not fulfilling their end of the webring bargain. The thing to do in either case would be to blacklist them until they fix their shit.
>>13796 They have always treated the webring with bad blood so i believe it's fully deliberate, but i'm surprised PLW isn't one of the enablers taking into account they were beneficiaries of Mark back in the real 8chan, Smug supporting them is indeed an interesting choice. Anon.Cafe's decision to be neutral in all these wars for the pro of comfiness is a wise choice but there comes a point where we will end up in a side even if by inertia, the next time some drama happens i think some people might have to take some decisions. Also surprised Zzz went ahead and made some boards in direct competition instead of being niche alternatives.
>>13796 >>13797 I went and checked their meta board and sure enough it was deliberate. Take a look at https://8chan.moe/site/res/1650.html#1668 and see for yourself. They claim it's "the sake of [their] logs and for simplicity", which doesn't really make sense.
>>13798 >Like Acid said, I strapped a few bugfixes to the same addon Julay and Cafe use, but it's clear it was written with a limited board list in mind. So they didn't even write their own, just "fixed" the peer discovery. Jesus.
>>13790 Sorry about that. Which lines in global.css would you like to have their !important tags removed?
>>13796 >>13798 It's been our policy since the webring's early days to only peer with those who properly implement the webring. We've blacklisted vch and julay.world in the past when their webring behavior became non-compliant, and restored peering when they fixed it. Accordingly we'll restore peering with 8chan.moe when they fix their webring plugin to work as it should, just as we would any other good-faith peer. >>13799 >I strapped a few bugfixes to the same addon Julay and Cafe use That's very kind of them. We checked the plugin's repository merge requests at https://gitlab.com/alogware/LynxChanAddon-Webring/-/merge_requests but it doesn't look like they've submitted a patch with their fixes yet. We contributed a small fix we made last year so we look forward to their doing the same soon.

>>13801 "Color" in the global.css: 43 compartment has an "!important" tag that overrides text color in some instances, mainly the buttons, that one i think is the only crucial example (in dark themed boards) at least from what i saw. I could be wrong but i would dare to say that any of those tags are not necessary, they stay the same unless a custom CSS demands it and it that case it's fully on the respective board owner to see if it works, they are 8 in total. Also i tried to update the theme to at least show the background image but it seems i get stuck with the same error >>13803 >>13788 are suffering: When trying to upload the CSS file in the new interface an error happens which informs us that the board itself doesn't exist. I recall this new interface looks or is the same one from when i had the board at Julay, so maybe they know how to fix that. Thank you for your time, too.
>>13796 >The thing to do in either case would be to blacklist them . FTFY. Mark's blatant, long-term, and goodcop-badcop samefagging with the obvious intention of gaslighting and spreading FUD and D&C makes him an enemy much worse than anything zzzchan has ever done across the webring thus far. He is plainly the enemy of the webring, bent only on corrupting and destroying it, then scooping up as many innocents set adrift by his own actions. And Acidman while sketchy on his own account, is obviously at the very least colluding in all that behavior. Do not allow 8moe anywhere near the webring, ever.
>>13802 >It's been our policy since the webring's early days to only peer with those who properly implement the webring. Then you may consider blacklisting these as well for their improper/broken implementation: fch.bet late.city sportschan.org prolikewoah.com

>>13806 Those sites are just broken. None of them deliberately modified the working webring plugin to ignore peer discovery like blacked.moe did. >>13802 >We contributed a small fix we made last year so we look forward to their doing the same soon. They won't do it because they're lying about the bugfixes. They just crippled the webring plugin which works perfectly well here, on alogspace, and other webring sites that actually run worth half a damn.

>>13816 >Called out fucking hard Where? One sperg and a couple Tor users started screaming at the sky about how it's all intentional, man, and also completely disregarded a couple of posts about what was actually happening on the back end. There's zero proof to support your claim that they intentionally decided not to display the other sites that displayed them.
>>13817 Can you read? People complained about them not implementing the webring properly and they said that their crawling was broken so they had to manually add sites. All the sites were posted and only one site got added from the list (anon.cafe) because of some "peering agreement" shit. A considerable spergout later and after getting their first blacklist they backtracked. Don't dickride blacked, it's fucking cringe.
>>13817 Proof's in their behavior. >claimed that the webring plugin was broken and had to be "fixed" even though it works here, on Julay, etc. >the "fix" coincidentally happened to disable their displaying anyone who they didn't have a "peering agreement" with (lol) >got called out >got blacklisted for gay crimes >backpedaled like crazy >uh actually "peering agreement" means something else uh I didn't mean it uh >but it's uh fixed now uh that's lucky This from a site whose higher-ups were already known for their FUD and dishonest behavior especially on the subject of the webring. >b-but you can't prove anything! Of course we can't prove it beyond all doubt without access to their server and being able to see the changes they made to the plugin's code. But we can see that if things were actually the way they claim they were then they would have acted differently. You can easily look at any other webring member's json file and copy-paste a list of sites as a temporary measure like >>13818 says, no need for gay peering agreements and politixxx.
>>13819 For the record I don't claim they intentionally broke the plugin, I don't know if newer versions of lynxnigger or if their shitty frontend somehow broke it, but they completely ignored trying to manually add everyone from the webring until they got blasted for it
>>13820 Even if it was an accident, they sure leaned into it. Look at the post in >>13798 image. >Currently we're agreeing to peer anyone who peers us back who also predominantly hosts 8chan bunkers. They "agree" to "peer anyone who peers us back". That sure sounds deliberate. If they'd wanted to do it properly but it was broken they'd have said something like "our peering is currently broken but we're trying to fix it, please hold on". When they were shown the list of peers they'd have said something like "thanks, we've added those as temporary direct peers while we work on fixing everything". But did they? No. They set gay conditions on peering and when they were called out for it they backpedalled. How do you miscommunicate so hard that you stumble from "it's broken, sorry" into "WE ONLY FOLLOW FOR FOLLOWBACKS AND IF YOU ARE OF THE 8CHAN RACE"?
>>13821 If they wanted to screw around with the webring they probably wouldn't have announced it was a betatest or fixed their plugin like a day later and made up excuses instead. I have no horse in this race but the paranoia on all sides gets tiresome. If their shit works then I say let them in according to the rules and policies of the site.
>>13822 Nobody accused them of screwing around with the webring's operation, everybody accused them of trying to weasel out of peer discovery and replace it with gay "peering agreements" with their own conditions, because that is exactly what they did. Then when they backpedaled they were accused of backpedaling. It's not paranoia, it's just calling out what's right there.

Our downtime earlier today was the usual hypervisor problem. Our provider has indicated that they don't consider the problem to be on their end, so we'll be restarting when we see a hang. Because the machine has to be hard-reset at the hypervisor level, there's little we can do to automate this. Apologies to all affected.
/lego/ has recently decided to allow NSFW material, and so has been marked NSFW.
Anon.cafe now has a fallback file that explains what you should do if the site is subject to attacks, and provides a way for you to verify whether messages you see are legit or not. Please save the file to your computer now: https://anon.cafe/special_static/anoncafe_fallback.txt
We're back from another spot of downtime. This time our provider's frontend panel was also unavailable, suggesting a general problem at our provider's level.

Earlier today I made a post outlining consequences I would be putting into place to deter markets from funding DDoS attacks against each other, as the potential to scale and completely kill every node on the network is a very real potential outcome. Now everything is down and I have no idea if this has sped up the process of this occurring or if it is even an attack at all, all I know is, this is big. >The attack basically overloads the authority nodes by sucking up all their bandwidth so the authority nodes can’t communicate between themselves to vote and make a consensus. This fundamentally breaks the network if it goes on too long. This isn’t so new. Like a lot of the Tor attack issues which get exploited in this way there is a closed issue on it. https://consensus-health.torproject.org shows that some authority nodes have come back on line for voting, but there's no indication as to whether the attack has truly ended or will reoccur. >v2 addresses are still functional They're also being removed later this year.

Two issues: - I just made two posts on my board with nothing in the name field, but my name and role signature appeared both times. I looked in my account settings, but there does not seem to be a control option for this. I know I've posted without my name and signature before even while logged in. - The Tomorrow theme (which I'm using via the dropdown menu at the top of the page) is broken on the board settings page. I thought the fields were broken, but it turns out they were just displaying black text on an extremely dark grey background. This should be changed to white text in every field.

Now that we are properly back, an explanation of the recent spot of downtime seems a good idea. Short version: It had nothing to do with Anon.cafe; the ASN in which our VPS resides got hit by a nasty blocklist that asks ISPs to pay them for delisting. In our provider's words: "The cause stems from "anti-spam" RBL UCEPROTECT blacklisting port scanners, which has caused quite a fuss at one of our datacenters. Our understanding is that any internet-wide scan, including for Minecraft servers, is enough to be listed in UCEPROTECT." Unfortunately, email blocklists also tend to be mis-used for general traffic blocking purposes, so our DC's upstream networks suddenly blocked about half the provider's servers - including Anon.cafe's. If a data centre finds any of their IP prefixes listed in UCEPROTECT, the German man who runs the list demands a ransom fee to delist them in less than seven days. You can read more about UCEPROTECT's practices at https://blog.sucuri.net/2021/02/uceprotect-when-rbls-go-bad.html. About two weeks ago, UCEPROTECT "changed" their policy to be more aggressive, and the number of ASNs they listed subsequently increased from 28 to 843 - a 2910% increase. Our provider speculated that this was a cynical attempt to milk ISPs for delisting money. Our new Pleroma account is live at https://freespeechextremist.com/anoncafe and in future we'll use it for announcements during situations like these. Apologies for the disruption.

Not sure if this is the right thread for it, but I wasn't sure that the question warranted its own thread. What is the website's official stance on loli images? The rules say that CP isn't allowed (which makes sense) and provocative pictures of real children aren't allowed (which makes sense), and that images created with a strong resemblance to real children aren't allowed, such as 3D models (which I also feel makes sense). However, the particular issue of 2D cartoon characters like the average anime loli is not addressed. I'm not clamoring for a loli board or anything; I was just curious about that particular topic since it's usually a sticking point for many anons.
>>13963 >However, the particular issue of 2D cartoon characters like the average anime loli is not addressed. Frankly I don't care but I can say people post those pretty much innocent pictures on 4chan all the time. If even cuckchan allows it I don't see why we shouldn't. I'd say suggestive is where the line is drawn. But since literal glownigger jewish pedophiles like "esther aronowitz" post pedo shit in an attempt to false flag boards to censor free speech I can see why it's not a good idea.
>>13963 >>13964 I'm not a regular user here, so my opinion should be taken skeptically. >Loli may refer to: >Lolita (term), meaning a "precociously seductive young girl" >Lolicon, a Japanese term for an attraction to young girls, or associated media. Loli has a specifically sexual connotation. Regular anime depictions of kids does not constitute loli. With that in mind, I think that anyone who looks at loli, or even uses the word loli, should kill themselves. Sexualizing children is wrong, and no amount of mental gymnastics will change that. "but it's not real" it's realistic enough to be obvious they depict children, and it's realistic enough to excite perverts. "but cuckchan allows it" does mean it's good? why would you want to do anything cuckchan does? Any image depicting sexualized children, no matter how unrealistic or poorly rendered it is, should be ground for ban not only from imageboards but from existence itself.

In the case of /x/ i think loli content doesn't affect anything at all but if the BO wants to ban it i guess it will not affect in anything the content he probably wants to be posted there, it certainly is odd but nothing wrong with it. That's my opinion, i can also add the majority of anon.cafe lurkers are not phased by loli either, they might not post it but are not offended by it, in fact as a personal opinion i can say someone getting offended over it can be classified as a different breed of anon, particularly one of a newer genesis than the rest of us, in short a newfag or someone who was not made with the same tools and materials as some of us.

>>13976 >But on every single board regardless of category? Yes, and you're a triple faggot if you genuinely can't see it. Posting unrelated bullshit in a post image is a time-honored tradition that goes back to the earliest days of any image board on any continent.

I'd agree with you if loli hadn't always been a canary in the coal mine for image boards and retarded BOs/mods who power trip their boards to death. Not every board should feel obligated to cater to everyone, but the /x/ BO is going way too far here. >in fact as a personal opinion i can say someone getting offended over it can be classified as a different breed of anon, particularly one of a newer genesis than the rest of us, in short a newfag or someone who was not made with the same tools and materials as some of us I agree with that, which is why I'm pressing the issue although I never expected it to get this much traction. There isn't any good reason for banning it, since even if the servers are hosted in a country where such things are illegal the owner can always find different service providers. I know zzzchan's servers are somewhere in Eastern Europe and the providers don't give a fuck what's hosted on them as long as it isn't CP.
>>13979 It might be because it's still seen as a fringe taste of certain urban tribes, particularly what some may call as jap lovers or "nerds" in a very general term, they try to shame or poke fun at such posters without realizing they are in company of plenty of users who see them as natives rather than weird foreigners. Some boards do dislike it publicly, like TVch, but i can bet good money most of them don't mean it completely seriously as most of the posts there are shitposts of ironic nature, if we took them with face value we could say they are Bernie-friendly donut-store maniacs with an interracial porn CK-tier affinity who, somehow, belittle anime fans for not watching shows with real people in it. Sadly some other boards think they are actually posting seriously, which deserves the mockery for not understanding such obvious humorous nature.

>>13981 >I'd agree with you if loli hadn't always been a canary in the coal mine for image boards I kinda agree with that statement but back in the day the canary was /hebe/ and borderline teen porn, you try to bring either of those and many will scream in pain. I don't mind those but here in anon.cafe there's actually a rule based on the hosting country's law that disallows that, yet in a board hosted in a non-romanian country i wouldn't defend an admin who bans obvious adult actresses larping as grown teens. That was the real canary, borderline enough for many to question it but always the rule set to know if a site was getting glowed and/or if the owner was an outsider. In recent years many users didn't actually grow seeing such a site so i can expect in a near future other users not allowing loli either as some countries have banned it, but anyways here i would say the closest to a canary is loli, sure enough, yet if a BO doesn't want it he is in his rights just as we are to not use his board as other internal places allows us loli posting. I repeat i find odd he wanted that but i guess it's just as odd as /britfeel/ not wanting an outsider 'aving some fun banter and calling them sheep shaggin' arabs who drink carbonated piss from their mum's penis. >providers don't give a fuck what's hosted on them as long as it isn't CP. Anon.cafe servers are hosted in an eastern european country, Romania, and their laws clearly specify not even 3D render porn of people who look underage, if they caught you watching some video of a 18yo adult actress who looks 15 they can easily sentence you if they want to, watching a raw 2000's era render of some Warcraft monster impaling some teen can also be grounds to give you forced community service to go and paint the houses of some shitassed gypsies in the outskirts. I also said they can change service providers easily but after going through it myself once in an unrelated venture i can say the less you think about the hosting and the servers along with possibly transporting them to another site, the better, because i think those and the technical glitches in the site are the major time drains, the more time an admin can actually use his own site for fun the more will be the possibility of him maintaining the place. An admin that spends most of the time fixing a site will very likely kill it even if the users beg him not to. >>13983 >He actually thinks TVch are 20 Louis CK clones talking to each other about the joys of letting some gangbangers gangbang your wife and kill every white male while posting detailed analysis about how Justice League - Director's Cut will be a groundbreaking piece of media. lmao'ing at yer leif m80

I'm talking about the internet as a whole, man. The people who claim loli is a harmful poison of the mind are, without fail, either literal pedophiles or sex pests or some other kind of of lowlife. It's not like I enjoy lolicon myself or anything, but it's a victimless "crime" and shouldn't be prohibited unless the servers are hosted in an extremely strict country (and in that case, I think the servers should be moved). >watching a raw 2000's era render of some Warcraft monster impaling some teen can also be grounds to give you forced community service to go and paint the houses of some shitassed gypsies in the outskirts.

What an awful country. >the less you think about the hosting and the servers along with possibly transporting them to another site, the better I sympathize with that - I'm a programmer myself - but the fact remains that having an arbitrary ban on certain types of reaction images is not good for the community of an image board. >the BO can do what he wants I agree with that, but he should ensure that his views and actions align with the views and desires of his prospective user base. If the BO has such a stick up his ass that he won't allow any nudity of any kind whatsoever, even under a spoiler, then the discomfort will be too great for people to post. I truly think that he doesn't understand the subject matter of /x/ and all the weirdo sex freaks it attracts if he thinks that such a ban won't harm his board. >>13987 Like clockwork.
>>13988 No he said unrelated stuff >>>/x/81 I guess loli is unrelated
I think the BO of /x/ should just return to Cuckchan, either that or he should set up a subreddit for others of his ilk.
>>13988 >I'm talking about the internet as a whole, man Then i agree all the way >back in the days of 2015? Back in my days at least, 2007, /b/ and some other boards were not shy to post the classical jailbait pictures even if the topic wasn't related at all. A real canary talk was made in 8chan when Jim banned the local version of /hebe/, and while they did tiptoe the line with actual pictures of teens, none were under-dressed or anything making it a weird venture to be fair but they did eat ice cream suggestively. I can find such sweet eating pictures and even videos in any social sharing site so the fact it was banned for that while other boards posted dubious porn webms was damning to be true. It proved to be correct as we later saw it. >That blows. What an awful country. Doesn't mean it will happen but if they want they have all the legal ways to pull it out. >having an arbitrary ban on certain types of reaction images is not good for the community of an image board. Yeah, i agree too hence why i am in favor of long-winded rule explanations to leave no shadow of a doubt but that must be done by the BO, the admins really don't have no say in that and honestly the matter here is inside the jurisdiction of what the BO can do, doesn't mean all the boards will abide by his will, it's just house rules of his. >he should ensure that his views and actions align with the views and desires of his prospective user base In my opinion only the most basic of moderation should be done in newly-made boards, that is delete spam and post about banners, CSS and such. He already went and done goofed it with those rules in terms of an anon's confidence in going to his shack but i think in due time the userbase can soften a man's views on something, especially when he's not against it personally, he just doesn't want seeing it My problem with him is not his loli posture but the fact a /x/ board is SFW, almost by definition it will definitely not be SFW in half of the topics it will touch, namely the nudism in fringe/gnostic talks, the satanism in occult threads, the gore in serial killer threads, the alien pictures which surprisingly a high number of people consider it a very serious phobia (IIRC from the old /x/ days it was the most common fear many anons had) so one would say someone visiting /x/ is already expecting to see shit that will question his feelings. >all the weirdo sex freaks it attracts I don't recall it being that pervasive but in that case i do think his ruling makes sense, i rather talk about something trying to find an objective truth or fact than finding the erotic meaning (as in aesthetic values rather than horny state of being) of some strange topic. If that ruling halts almost every succubus and injecting semen inside an egg thread then isn't that a good thing, loli matter excluding?
>>13963 >What is the website's official stance on loli images? The rules say that CP isn't allowed (which makes sense) and provocative pictures of real children aren't allowed (which makes sense), and that images created with a strong resemblance to real children aren't allowed, such as 3D models (which I also feel makes sense). However, the particular issue of 2D cartoon characters like the average anime loli is not addressed. See >>7 which states: >Regarding the global rules, we asked a few hosts with servers in Romania about the anime-style loli matter and they responded that “cartoon” (I.e. 2D) loli was not considered child pornography under their policies. So one might naturally conclude that 2D is not included under the Romanian law unless it “credibly simulates” a juvenile or has been produced as a derivative work of actual abuse material. We couldn’t find any clarification beyond that. Naturally if we receive takedown notices from Romanian law enforcement then we have to comply. Regarding purely textual stories, we don’t know, but it seems a great stretch to call a story a “credible simulation”.
>>13991 >>13992 BO clarifies >>>/x/92 According to root admin, sfw means no “explicit content” even behind a spoiler. Is this correct?
>>13993 >sfw means no “explicit content” even behind a spoiler. Is this correct? The Global Rules state: >Do not post adult content on SFW boards >If a board owner has marked a board "SFW" (Safe For Work) then you must not post pornography or other explicit adult-only content to that board. Posting pornography or other explicit adult-only content on to a SFW board, even if done as a spoiler, is still posting it.

>>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.

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.

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.
