So many, I had to pick one. I'll reply with the fix here, that work?

Balrog just decrypted StephenLynx autism documentation and updated our theme so that the ban system should now be fixed.

Please make ban length variable. Users on /pol/ are reporting that it is fixed to 5 years and the mod claims that it is unchangeable.

If you don't want end/pol/ to get the same reputation as 8/pol/ for retarded bans, this needs to be fixed ASAP.

we're working on it. It is a high priority. Something broken between 1.6 and 1.7 and figuring it out hasn't been easy.

If I wrote 8chan migration for InfinityNow Anonymous 01/11/2017 (Wed) 02:10:40 [Preview] No. 5549 [Reply]
To OdiliTime and SnakeDude:

Would you be open to the idea of allowing endchan board owners to rip and migrate 8chan threads and their replies to their endchan board?

The purpose of this would be to allow less active 8chan board communities that don't want to start fresh to migrate here as seamlessly as possible.

It's an ambitious project that I'd like to try writing for your website, but I don't want to spend weeks on this only to be told that you have zero interest in allowing something like this to be implemented on your website in the first place, even if the code meets your performance and security expectations and very cleanly migrates data to the MongoDB. I need to know if you'd be open to this if I ever manage to get it at a finished, thoroughly tested state.

I'm leaving the technical details out for now in this OP to be keep this post short and to the point.
3 posts omitted.

how does the exported data look like?

would it make sense to write script that manually migrates post by simple http(s) requests to endchan's board one by one?


Anonymous 01/11/2017 (Wed) 05:32:32 [Preview] No. 5554 del
just my 2c, but i doubt they would want to make this an official feature of endchan and place it on account.js moderator page for everyone to use due to feature bloat and liability reasons. Frankly your code would be for a very special case and they seem to be keen on keeping the codebase as lean as possible.

on the other hand, i do think it would be very nice of them if they were to allow this as an "unofficial" option where 8chan board owners can privately request the endchan staff to migrate their 8chan board's threads to the corresponding endchan board by sending them the ripped data (name, date, post #, files, etc.)

so i do think it would be a neat option, and you should still write your board ripping program that rips and formats the relevant data from the static html mod pages and then write the migration script so that data can be migrated to infinitynow/lynxchan. but don't expect this kind of thing to ever become an official feature, it just seems to me a very special case that would have to be something endchan staff does manually, if they're even willing. also, i don't know how much 8chan's codebase is changing, but it could potentially be a nightmare to maintain this ripper+migrator since 8chan is not open source and you don't always know what changes behind the scenes.

Well look at these, probably could be converted to using the 4chan JSON API instead of using mysql to read infinity
https://gitgud.io/stephenlynx/VichanMigration/
https://github.com/SpaceDustTeapot/infinity2lynx

Definitely some ethical issues with steal content.

Then the question of does this really solve what you're trying to do. And I would say no. If you don't have a big enough user base or the will to set up shop new, you're not likely just to move cause of the content has been copied.

but I'm open to the idea and discussion about it.

>>5554
Yea, I think it would have to be a supervised process like claims. You'd send a request, we'd process it and then that's that.

I maintain 8archive, the 4chan API is superstable, it's not a big deal to maintain at all.

For the record, in the earliest phase when the goal was to onboard the non-shit people from 8chan as quickly and smoothly as possible before Next dropped and scattered everyone, I had considered some kind of scraping setup to help content-dump-centric boards (e.g. /pdf/) get back up to speed. That sort of fell by the wayside when the plan to give 8chan BOs first dibs on their boards on endchan (again, to try and skip the period of anarchy post-Next) was met with a resounding "fuck you" and the exodus died.

While I would normally be at least a bit concerned about the ethics of scraping boards wholesale, in my opinion 8chan has decayed to the point where the staff is beyond any consideration of ethics or mercy. Fuck Watkins and everything he touches, any questions of ethics lie with the community of the board to be scraped.

The real issue with scraping (and transferring 8chan boards to endchan intact as a prerequisite) would be global staff picking winners and losers and giving 8chan communities a head start. Again, I tried that (the only boards that actually got to take advantage were /tg/ and /monster/, since I went to them first to provide a low-cancer vanguard; they've still kept endchan as their primary bunker) and the immediate reaction over here was "fuck 8gaggers, let them come here on their own and rise or fall on their own merits." So it would really be up to the community here to decide if it's worth it. If it's decided to be a good idea it would be like the early plan.

After some thought, if the community created the content, it's likely their content. Unless 8chan has some really shitty legal rules.



Capcodes for BOs? Anonymous 01/11/2017 (Wed) 20:21:44 [Preview] No. 5556 [Reply]
1) Can BOs use capcodes?
2) How is this done, moderation manual doesn't mention it

I like how you can make a custom stream of posts by adding "/<board1>+<board2>+...".
Is it possible to implement the reverse for the overboard?
eg. "/overboard-<board1>-<board2>-...".
This could also help dealing with spam and flooding.

Has been brought up many times. The short answer is no. StephenLynx fucked up his caching scheme and It'll take major redevelopment to fix.

News Restructure Suggestion Anonymous 01/09/2017 (Mon) 17:59:59 [Preview] No. 5531 [Reply]
No one really posts on /news/ and the front page news section doesn't really receive posts.

As a solution next to the "spoiler" check box add "Newsy?" and have the post also appear in /news/

News is subjective but I think this could be fun to actually start seeing random eventful topics appear there.

How exactly did you get Tor / i2p support up and running? Would you mind sharing some basic instructions?

Asking for a friend.

Thanks in Advance.


odilitime Board owner 01/05/2017 (Thu) 10:59:53 [Preview] No. 5515 del
We actually had some help ourselves. Tor seemed to be easier to set up than i2p. And we're currently on the java i2p, we do plan to move to the new c++ i2p daemon (i2pd).

Tor instructions:
This is a bit windows focused but the concepts are the same.
http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/create-hidden-service-tor-site-set-anonymous-website-server/
I think this is a good one:
https://www.torproject.org/docs/tor-hidden-service.html.en

I2P uses similar concepts but with the Java daemon you have to configure it through a web interface, so I had to do some really funky port forwarding to get into it. Much easier if you have console access to the server

Again a little on the windows side but like I said before, most of the config is done from a web browser for this.
https://linuxsecurityblog.com/2015/04/20/setting-up-a-darknet-website-with-i2p-on-ubuntu/

Believe it or not the best place to ask about this stuff is NNTPChan, that's where all the crypto guys are.


odilitime Board owner 01/05/2017 (Thu) 11:01:56 [Preview] No. 5517 del
There's also special configuration if you're using lynxchan. There's a dedicated tor port that bypasses the tor IP look up.

Thank you so much for all the helpful info!
My bud got both Tor support and I2P support up and running on his *chan.

BTW, What's that port? I'm looking into starting my own imageboard soon enough, and I'd like to have as many anonymous methods of posting as possible!

Again, I cannot thank you enough.

It's a config option, torPort https://gitgud.io/LynxChan/LynxChan/blob/master/src/be/Readme.md
doesn't seem to be a default so it's different for everyone.
