I agree. We should use an image of someone promoting diversity and social justice in tech. There's nothing fresher than diversity.

I would suggest Coraline Ada Ehmke.

Unfortunately, SJWs destroying tech isn't something you can just ignore and hope it goes away. You might want to have nothing to do with them, but they want to have something to do with you, and the tech you love, whether you like it or not.

First they came for Github, and I did not speak out—
Because I did not use Github.

Then they came for Intel, and I did not speak out—
Because I used AMD.

Then they came for 4chan, and I did not speak out—
Because there were other chans to visit.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

Richard Stallman is a great programmer. He wrote GCC, and worked on at least three operating systems (ITS, Symbolics Lisp Machines, and GNU). In the case of the Lisp Machine OS, he maintained his own libre fork of the operating system, and independently wrote his own patches for every single feature and bug fix *the entire company* released.

He didn't "side with the SJW on Gamergate". He found an article about Gamergate, said that death threats are bad, gave a list of corruption in other areas of journalism, and complained about software freedom.

I'd say yes IFF 1) you exclude 8chan (broken) and 4chan (cucked) AND 2) you get a reciprocal link from them. This place has few enough users as it is. If you're going to potentially send traffic to other boards, then we should position ourselves to receive lol, position ourselves to receive what r u a fag? lol traffic in return.

I don't think that would leave any boards. Some of the boards worth linking to don't even have a sticky to send traffic back.

Do you have a problem with linking to boards that aren't about technology in general, like https://8ch.net/lv/ (besides that it's on 8chan)?

I don't, as long as it's the sort of thing that would appeal to the typical denizen of this board.

I guess I was being too restrictive in my earlier statement about requiring a reciprocal link. It just seems like a shame to not have an avenue for generating traffic when this place is so dead. You should do what you think is best. You can always make adjustments later.

Nah, it's not a bad idea, especially if you're aiming at a similar-sized audience elsewhere.

And if you're aiming bigger? It creates an incentive for them to interact with us ankle-biters, rather than it seeming like we're just shilling and leeching their traffic.

We should settle on rules now that there's more interest in Endchan.

In particular:
- Should tech support and other personal support threads be allowed? If not, should they go in a sticky? How strict should it be?
- Should desktop threads and other ricing threads be allowed?
- Should unspoilered NSFW be allowed?

The stickies were great, keep them.

I think they should be. Productivity and ergonomics are a huge part of technology and discussion the merits between desktop environments and shit is important. The only problem has been the attention faggots trying to get people to "like" their gaming machine. If you could have the first bit but not the second there would be no question in my mind but I still lean toward allowing them.

No.


If people move here, I will move my boards here too.

Not allowing desktop and other ricing threads would be like 8/tech/'s policy. Discussing desktop environments and ergonomics would be fine, but screenfetch and homescreen threads wouldn't.

I'm not a fan of them, but I think banning them is too arbitrary because you don't really get more than two at a time. I lean towards allowing them too but I'm ok with disallowing them if that's what people want.

Sticky, and do it per basis as I still think there are times when it is a much more broad problem that simple support. Are you able to merge certain topics into the support sticky? I would do that for ones that don't fit the criteria.

Yes. Allow these, it makes no sense to spread a community thin while it is trying to grow. If at some point the community grows big enough, split them, but not during it's infancy. During infancy you need more posts to keep people active.

No. This would be a big mistake IMO.

There's a 2:1 proportion of people in the poll who want unspoilered NSFW versus people who want spoilered NSFW.

I'm still leaning towards spoilered, because having them unspoilered when you're in public and want them spoilered is much more of a problem than having them spoilered when you want them unspoilered. Is that reasonable?

I'm generally against unspoilered NSFW because there's no reason for it to be on this board but I don't really care that much about it.
Ricing and support threads should be kept off the board, though. I really enjoy the board as it is now because it's free of all those cancerous generals, support and ricing threads. Instead, people come here to discuss technology topics that matter, like security and anonymity. I believe it should stay that way.

Cloudflare is a good example of how shitty the internet industry is becoming. Industrialisation of web services and web security is becoming more comprehensive. Further perpetuating the reliance on these web monsters. More and more content can be filtered based on a combination of user and supplier. We can plainly see it with major search providers now.

Im not trying to be a doomsayer but our current political and economical structure encourages these trends..

Welp. Endchan /tech/ is over. MikeeUSA is shitting all over the front page with impunity, there's an irrelevant Trump thread that doesn't belong on /tech/, and I just saw "hurr systemd" thread #932,562,413. This one, I'm pretty sure, is just a copy of one from Lainchan. The phrasing of the questions is the same.

I've deleted the Trump thread (for not being technology) and the systemd thread (for being a duplicate).

I don't have a real solution for MikeeUSA in the GRSecurity thread. He's using Tor, so I can't ban him, and I know from experience that deleting his posts just makes him post more. Infinity has a few tools that helped deal with it, but Lynxchan doesn't have them (and most of the moderation tools that it does have are painful).

I use a simple rule of thumb for deciding whether a thread is relevant to /tech/.

If the topic of a thread is likely to lead to discussion of technology, it's relevant.

Your thread failed that. It led to discussion about Trump, and a little discussion about the TPP. Any discussion about technology was coincidential. I remember that someone mentioned technology in your 8chan thread, but that was in response to a metapost about /v/.

Are you the same person who complained about ""censorship"" before? The same person, in fact, who asked for an *anti-harassment system* on 16chan?

I use to get that issue back in the day on just normal Firefox.

I think back then, I had to install ffmpeg but it might not be the same issue you have.

TP~* is a mysterious individual, who comes and goes as he pleases. From my observation he comes on every few days and posts in many threads and then leaves again.

I think he'll come back, but maybe he got sick of this place or the feds rolled up on his house and found his little boy stash. That's what I would like to believe for the time being.

It does not comply with the idea behind allowing tor. One spammer ruins it for everyone and even makes a name for himself because of being able to post files anyways, Its kind of an outrage because if you have Firefox forks or whatever properly configured. The block bypass will not work with a properly configured browser. you get a login page with the captcha that is not for the block bypass. I think it is a redirection thing. Either way it is really annoying.

You can also post files using TOR here. The setting that controls that was changed from 1.6 to 1.7 and for a while it wasn't allowed.

And can you show me a single site that uses quarantine for something like this? Having people to clear every single post from tor is extremely impractical, might as well block tor posters entirely.

What if the user could enable all images to be spoilered if they are at work/class/outdoors or keep them unspoiled for at home. Additionally, when posting there could be an option to let spoiler anons know if the image is graphic. This could change the color of the spoiler or something to that effect.

Just a thought to give more options for the sake of compromise. Since an image can be questionable without being graphic.

I was looking at Ubuntu Budgie but there was not UI scaling option. Unity seems to have the best scaling and the GUI is all over the place. Icons are too small so I make them bigger but the text underneath is still tiny. Modal dialogs scale oddly. I compare this to running Ubuntu on my desktop(1080p).

Red team, blue team, left, right. You're proud of yourself for not swallowing the MSM narrative, but you don't realize that you've just swallowed another, equally braindead narrative. From where you're standing, you're a man.

From where I'm standing, you're an ape.

Which one?

You seem to be extremly narcissic. That's not suprising that you clearly insult me of ape. I guess everyone are apes, and you're the man, isn't it? You're understanding the big scheme, and everyone else are just retards around you?
You're a good modern. Perfectly in your time.

>Ever see that episode of Rick and Morty where the Devil gives Rick a microscope that, if he used it, would have lowered his IQ to idiot-level?

About /news/, /news/ is just a news aggregator, (trying) doing the job of selecting the most interesting news from the massive news flow. You can't do shit without these aggregators. Again, i'm talking about here, not 8ch.

Whew, nice recovery! I'm familiar with the traditional use of sage stemming from Japanese imageboard culture. I'm also familiar with the concept of trying to rationalize an embarrassing gaffe by lying about your motivation or attributing misunderstanding to the other party.

What a low-stakes thing to come back and lie about several days later, though. You are truly a sad specimen.

Excuse me, you've been mistaken for someone else and they may need glasses. See, the "nigger spammer" is anti-/pol/, not anti-/news/. News was made by Trump fanatic and 8cucks' Jim's buddy Red Pill Dropper. The nigger spammer slides Jim Watkins posts off with necro-bump keyboard spamming because he owns 8. They're in league with each other. I think one of our users burst a blood vessel or something, trying to keep this all together. Either that or it's Unknown, because he is the nigger spammer and he simultaneously accuses others of doing the very thing he does. Anyway, carry on.

This thread is quite obscure and I am uncertain if this post will be viewed by another human.

I am tired of this endless bullshit! I am tired of politics constantly leaking into this board, I am tired of every thread being related to damn security in one way or another, I am tired of idiots leaking into this medium and causing it to cease being entertaining and insightful for the genuinely savvy users, and I am tired of constantly running from corporations and agencies that want to oppress me and take my data, fuck this.

/tech/ has ceased being a medium for discussing genuine software and hardware and has basically become a medium for hiding from corporations and agencies and constantly being paranoid that every fucking electronic device around you wants you dead, it gets old after a while, and you end up using hardware and software which is absolutely useless for daily activities. BUT HEY! This software/hardware protects your freedom, so you should install it!

I want to discuss motherboards, I want to discuss soldering and other techniques for building simple electronics, I want to discuss interesting software applications for performing calculations or visualizing data plugged into it, I want to discuss signal interception using old television satellite dishes, I want to discuss physics and mathematics that pertains to technology, I want to discuss internal compression engines and transmissions (Because this type of shit actually pertains to /tech/).

But I know this is all a dream, imageboards are filled with faggots and individuals who are interested in these types of topics are highly rare, and on rare imageboards such as this, the only people you will find are those who are here because they care only about their privacy and that is all.

There should definitely be more threads about hardware and other branches of engineering. Ironically, even though I am EE student no one in my class is particularly interested in field they study. Drinking and partying comes before everything, it's very tiresome to be surrounded by such people and I have no one to talk with, so I often loose will to do anything. I am also not very fond of forums, since attaching name to your every post is uncomfortable in some situations and I also find forum format more confusing than image board format of discussion. So by all means start a engineering/hacking/lab/whatever thread so that we may discuss about soldering, electronics, mechanics, physics and other things that are different from usual privacy and free software talk.

Hello guys, I'm the new BO here. Pretty much nothing would change except ring becoming BV. If you have any urgent questions, contact me at betamax(AT)memeware(DOT)net but I'll very occasionally drop by at #endchan on Rizon.

Want some new custom flags, banners, css? Post some here and I'll test it out in a test board (if it needs testing) while you guys can discuss among yourselves which flags, banners, or css you guys prefer. Do you want to advertise /tech/ in /news/ about there being a new BO? Fine by me, though I won't do it, neither would /tech/ be held responsible for any irresponsible posts. See some spam? Report it. Do you want to shill this board in IRC? Do it yourself, but it's all on you. I am nothing but a nail to the bulletin board hanging on a wall. Nothing really changes from my end fundamentally, but the posts made on here can and it's really up to you guys to maintain it in making good OC and good threads.

Here's my horribly edited image in 500x200 https://endchan.xyz/tech/banners/1512721036457

Here's the deal, if you can make 15 10 good banners in the same size while optimizing at least 5 existing banners, I'll consider it. For uniformity's sake, I suggest you all to make it have the omega logo and something tech related. How big do you want it to be? I genuinely don't care for phoneposters though, some banners look great when they're not puny. If you don't like 500x200, suggest a image resolution that isn't puny and isn't wider than 4:1.

I think this is the best that can be done with existing banners. Truth be told, new stuff needs to get made. I did some apng banners for /cyber if you might be interested in some of those?

Tested my moderating powers on your duplicate post. Also, see my edited post >>11866 and I'm not sure if /cyber/'s BO is okay with that, whoever it is. If I get their consent, sure. If not, no. If no reply, no. It's on you to ask though, it's none of my business.

no, they are the wrong size. I am asking if you want animated banners or not. I can make a few but it's not zero effort and I don't want to go ahead and make them just for you to say you don't want animated banners. Also the content is wrong, I would use more /tech related clips.
