One year of LynxChan StephenLynx##8HkpNt 05/15/2016 (Sun) 13:52:03 [Preview] No. 3974 [Reply]
A couple years ago, I used to use a certain chan. It was the single biggest western chan at the time. And while I knew it wasn't perfect, I thought it was a place outside the corporate control of narrative. A place where bullshit was exposed, not propagated. Then one day, I found an article with some credibility about corruption on the media. I looked at the board's catalog, found nothing about said subject and created a thread linking the article. This board had a history of deep mistrust on the media and the people that usually reported on said media, so I thought other people would appreciate this piece of information. Instead I was immediately banned for 3 months.
At that point, I realized the tentacles of the people controlling narrative on the media could reach way, way further than I thought. I realized that when it comes to information exchange, society as a whole cannot afford to put all of it's eggs on a single basket. Because no matter what kind of basket it is, the people out there to control what people talk and think will always be able to find some way to control which eggs stay on the basket and which ones are buried and forgotten as if they never existed.
I stopped using that chan completely and started to diversify the chans I used. One of them managed to take many of other people moving away from the chan that banned me and at some point, the software it used could not cope with the stress it was being put under. That caused the owner of this new chan to look for alternatives and after looking at the existing software, I thought to myself "I can do better". I knew I could do something faster, easier to manage, more secure, more flexible. Something that would make everything else obsolete and take away this technical hurdle from people willing to run chans.
And so, LynxChan was born. And in just one year, with the help of talented and dedicated people on all areas, it managed to rise higher than I could ever ask for. Now people willing to run chans are not tied to archaic, crippled and unmaintained technology. Now they have something that can serve for any style of chan they want to have, that will handle any amount of work and that can be deployed without issues on a matter of minutes and can be customized in any way. All without sacrificing features.
This represents a huge addition to the chan ecosystem, one of the last shelters of free speech on an increasingly controlled and censored internet. If this ecosystem is to survive, its crucial it evolves and adapts to new scenarios and standards. There is a long road ahead but I am certain this project will become more successful as time goes on. I'd like to thank everyone that not only put their time and energy into helping development, but also people that trusted the software into their servers.

On a different topic, I am dropping support for versions 1.1 through 1.4. I know this is not the ideal way to do it, without a reasonable window, but I feel 1.5 is the oldest relevant version by now and I really don't feel like maintaining the older ones. They will be moved to a legacy repository.
About future plans, I am thinking of focusing on usability for a while. I know that moderation tools are sub-par on this area. 1.6 implemented probably the last big feature overhaul, so there isn't much left to be done besides this kind of polish.

Ironically, national socialism is closer to communism than /pol/tards would like to think. Free software is not communist. If anything, it's a free market thing - everyone can do whatever they want with the source code and programmers can be hired to make modifications and the most needed, most efficient and the most cost effective software wins.

Add bullet list in markdown? Anonymous 04/26/2016 (Tue) 05:43:13 [Preview] No. 3628 [Reply]
Bullet list is one of the best ways to simplify explanation in topics:
http://web.archive.org/web/20160426052043/https://www.nngroup.com/articles/how-users-read-on-the-web/

What about we add bullet lists to the markdown?

Example:
- First topic
- Second topic
- Third topic

If the bullet list was applied to the above, he would automatically indent to 8 tab stops (the standard), and change the "-" to the bullet symbol:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bullet_(typography)

The only problem I see here is that bullet is not us-ascii. So could use asterisk ("*") instead.

Other idea wold be to wrap text when it reach 60 characters per line. According to some research, the best readability is around 60cpl:

Why do you even comment? The functions is based on markdown style (lightweight markup lang). If you don't want people saying it's markdown, care to put some other specific name?

Also, this is irrelevent. The proposal here is:
- Add Bullet lists
- Add [quote] tag
- Wrap text on 60cpl

The 'developers' seem to have just given up of /operate/.

No. I think this would mess with the normal text too much. Also I'm not a fan of markdown. Stephen was right not to implement the whole thing.

How? How can a simple [quote] tag "mess" with text?
Shit, if you don't want to implement, fine, just give a better response and not more stupidity.

handel has gone too far Anonymous 04/21/2016 (Thu) 18:09:35 [Preview] No. 3366 [Reply]
I have purposefully avoided posting memes that i make oc of because he hate the oathbreaker I get it. I receive a comment about a month ago that this person wished I had made my own threads. I was hesitant to do so because before handel had locked a thread that had over 200 replies because it was "nonsense". Fine.I had provided ample source material in the conspiracy thread including the complete version of a rare book. something that I would see as an act of virtue. He locks it for the claim that i was just talking to myself and not replying to skeptics. This was when not as many people browsed /pol/ so there was few people posting, I would have responded if there where comments
I decide to make a continuation of a thread that Had been banned on 8/pol/ and again it is locked here. The thread should be unlocked at the least and This can not go unchallenged
