LynxChan 1.8 Anonymous 12/06/2016 (Tue) 12:40:15 [Preview] No. 7535
What is LynxChan?
LynxChan is a chan engine developed with performance, efficiency and flexibility in mind. It powers several chans ( http://lynxhub.com/lynxchan/res/285.html ) and contains a number of community-created front-ends ( https://gitgud.io/LynxChan/LynxChan-ThirdPartyFrontEnds ).
It offers a number of features, including:
-File deduplication, saving bandwidth, disk space and allowing users to post files without uploading them.
-Overboard, aggregating posts from the whole site on a single place so users can browse more easily.
-Multi-board, allowing users to aggregate posts from only selected boards.
-Extensive anti-spam and anti-flood tools that aim to both impede and reduce damage without inconveniencing users.
-Add-on support, which enables features to be added without the need for a fork.
-Modular front-end and language pack allows for the site owner to customize it without having to change the actual software.

LynxChan 1.8 main addition is multi-lingual support.
This feature allows site owners to specify alternative language packs and front-ends and associate languages to them.
When an user visits the site, the engine seamlessly picks an available language from the user and serves content in that language.

This version brings some other minor features so far:
-More granular and specific verbose modes.
-A terminal command to perform a clean shutdown of the engine.
-A board setting that allows for a maximum age that threads are allowed to be bumped.
-Improved spammer and TOR ips storage.

This version will be released 03/17, LynxChan can be found at https://gitgud.io/LynxChan/LynxChan.

>any references to Babylon or Babel
Would you like your project to be identified with a tyrannical government in which the ruler was considered an all seeing god and whose subjects were stripped of all their freedoms and privacy?

Yeah, I'm getting suspicious that Lynxchan may be compromised (Whether or not endchan itself or Odi are is yet to be seen. However the .xyz domain name itself is owned by some shifty jews)

Oh fuck, it should've been babel.
I done fucked up :v
Good thing there isn't any mention on the actual project.
I just started trying to get catchy names for versions.

You can put the tinfoil down. It was just what came to my head when thinking of something that meant many languages on a single place.

I noticed that but never thought to criticize what may be good work for a little tower of babel. If it was like a dagger and the word Babylon in Algerian font then that would be suspicious.

If not for the context of the latest update I probably wouldn't be suspicious at all, but...
>"tor spammer" inundates the board
> this forces captcha for every post and (at least temporarily) a tor image posting ban
>/pol/ starts using brightly colored ID's at the same time
>Lynxchan updates to the "babylon" version in response to the tor spam

Anonymous 12/06/2016 (Tue) 17:28:16 [Preview] No. 7542 del
This update had nothing to do with that spam.
This feature and name has been planned for two months now and I set with the name Babylon ever since.

The only thing I did because of that spam was the anti-necrobumping feature, since there was no way to handle that. If a TOR user necrobumps, you couldn't do anything about it, since you couldn't ban the user.

Now, what /pol/ does is /pol/'s business. The global staff doesn't have a saying on that.

The global captcha was indeed a response from the global staff to the spam while they figured a way to handle it.

This is not a cool thing to do. This is a fucked up thing. There's a very sinister nuance to the story of Babel - it wasn't a fun-fun situation, the walls that were supposedly raised to protect the city from beasts of the field in fact were built in order to imprison the population. Yes it is oftentimes raised to present the imagery of conglomerating languages but that nuance is still present and by all means it is consciously used by the powers that be. It is wise to avoid employing imagery you don't fully understand so as not to get misunderstood.

Anyway you don't need a cryptic 2deep4u shit attached to each version of your soft. That whole practice is suspicious. It's too easy to put up covert information for those who understand while having the alibi of the cool factor. You're writing software, not poetry.

This is yet another suspicious thing that came out of endchan. As I've said if you people are indeed involved in this shit you'll keep making smug references thinking everyone around you is too dumb to get it. I don't know how many more occurrences like that I'll be able to reason out as pure coincidences.

Anonymous 12/06/2016 (Tue) 17:33:57 [Preview] No. 7544 del
A note about ID colors, I implemented that waaaay back in june.
I figured that without anything but the text, it was too hard to identify people at a glance, which is exactly the intention of ids.
It just happened that endchan upgraded to 1.7 (the first version to contain this change) around the time the spammer did his thing.

For one, I don't care about people's feelings. Be it cultural sensitivities, political correctness or bat shit insane paranoia.

I am 100% transparent and if you have any issues with the project, please, read through it's code and point it out.

This is why I'm still suspicious of the whole "sapphire" thing, even more so than Lynx. I can write up some to coincidences only because the norms of the software world are to use occultic names and this is just developers following the trend. or if you really want to get tinfoil, maybe it's not a deliberate conspiracy planned out by agencies but rather subconscious spiritual evil , of which most of the people doing it don't even know they are

and tbh, the Cheshire Cat persona Lynx uses is more suspicious than this alone.

Don't try to play it out like it's about someone's fewings, political sensibilities or a goddamn delusion. Fly a banner of the enemy long enough and you leave no option to understand it otherwise. Don't pick up and use what you don't understand.

See if it was a videogame reference that happened to be occult-derived I wouldn't be suspicious at all. Even if it was just "babel" alone I wouldn't because of popular culture pushing the meme with languages.


Also, I could be wrong, but Lynx has admitted to being involved with Freech and/or Freech irc, so I wouldn't trust him one bit.

I don't think /intl/freech is behind everything bad that happens with with chans, and I also have noticed the recent trend of Imkampfy and 8gaggers accusing anything that isn't Trump worship as being "/intl/" and using it as a wedge.

However, I'm well aware that /intl/ and Freech are involved with their own subversion of imageboards. And here you are literally saying

He is. Freech runs on Lynxchan and he gives tech support.

What's wrong with that, though? Have you looked at the place? It's just a shitposting site, not an organized effort to destroy other sites.

Anonymous 12/06/2016 (Tue) 18:01:01 [Preview] No. 7555 del
Some of them eventually started doing fucking around, in my estimation for shits and giggles. What I asked for is a proof of agenda with ties to the occult because that's the insinuation when calling up babel to the equation (and that was the sort of accusation I recalled in the post).

I could be wrong, but there's Freech which is as you say mostly a shitposting site that does lowbrow raids on /pol/ (they were responsible for some of the pretending to be "CTR" just to bait), but there's also Freech IRC which seems to be a much more sinister cabal that tries to get members as mods on a lot of boards, and is often insinuated as being run by old-time SA Goons. I witnessed firsthand what happened to 8/r9k/ and one of the mods was confirmed a member of Freech irc. Freech has this whole "must destroy all imageboards and mods in the name of muh content" attitude and also a pseudo-kabbalistic "heh pill" cult that at least claims to have seeded the kek meme to subvert /pol/.

Anonymous 12/06/2016 (Tue) 18:13:59 [Preview] No. 7558 del
I'll say this: endchan is still a great board because of its everyday userbase and small population. But this will always be in spite of some suspicious coincidences going on. At least the majority of the userbase isn't subverted to the same degree as 8ch. And though it seems many of the mods are still on the whole "alt-right trump worship twitter" train , they have yet to turn this place into another 8gag and silence opposition. So I'm willing to believe they're mostly naive bandwagoners who don't get it's controlled opposition yet.

>Warning: Block bypasses require cookies to work
I liked endchan for ability to work without cookies. Now technically it's just like 8chan.
Captcha, any kind of it, should not require JS or cookies. Why not put "block bypass" captcha as usual captcha (that had cookieless version working) or even make longer captcha combining captcha enabled by board owner and block bypass one (useable without cookies too)?

Ability for mod to unnecrobump thread would be nice too. Just use latest nonsaging message creation date to resort threads when post is removed.

Anonymous 12/06/2016 (Tue) 20:32:24 [Preview] No. 7571 del
Block bypass ALWAYS required cookies.

There is no direct relation to block bypass and no-cookie captcha. You can fill the block bypass with either captcha (with or without cookies), but the block bypass itself does require cookies.

There is no other way to prevent spam from a tor user without requiring a captcha every single time he posts.

It is either require TOR users to enable cookies so they can use the block bypass or require the whole user base to input a captcha when they post.

What prevents showing/not showing captcha on posting form for Tor user like there's board setting being toggled by owner for usual captcha? What prevents accepting cookieless captcha for "bypass" page to accept single post? I don't care about keeping data about bypass for multiple posts. Just don't discard form input (shittiest thing website may do to user) and let me enter one captcha for one post.

The pages are not dynamic. Either the captcha is shown to everyone or to no one.

>What prevents accepting cookieless captcha for "bypass" page to accept single post?
Nothing, is not the captcha for bypasses that require cookies, is the bypass itself that requires cookies.

I don't discount the possibility of subverted mods, but at the same time there are faggots like you taking advantage of suspicion to attack the entire userbase of endchan.

well, not a surprise, suspected that (and it's ok)

>I don't get it, can you explain it further?
Static thread page with posting form, no captcha displayed. Form POSTs to /replyThread.js. What happens to text if it is not embedded into another form in reply page or saved at server? Discarded. Please don't rely on certain browser's ability to store form data. In replyThread.js, if user presented valid bypass cookie or is not subject to captcha check, just store form data as thread reply, put your "post added" in response and do your redirect to thread. If user have to fill captcha ("banned" IP and no cookie), put form data in replyThread.js response page as another form that features captcha. Storing post temporarily in DB and presenting only captcha text plus hidden form field with reference to stored post is fine too. Is that simple enough to implement?

Let's say you did block excess repeating words, and I bypassed them by typing in random letters. How to block this? If your post contained random characters which which did not constitute words, block the post.
