PSA: Block bypass has been enabled for some IPs

I found where that spam full of random garbage is coming from. It doesn't have any discernable pattern so we can't use the autoban addon to remove it, but it's all coming from the same /24 range of IPs in Russia so we can just rangeban it. The problem is that Lynxchan currently only does /16 rangebans, which would result in substantial collateral damage. To counter this I'm enabling the block bypass function.

If you are rangebanned, you can use the block bypass function to solve a CAPTCHA and bypass the rangeban. This requires your browser to store a "bypass" cookie. No CAPTCHA will be required to post if your IP has not been subject to a rangeban. Block bypasses last for 24 hours or 50 posts.

I've already asked StephenLynx about adding a second, smaller rangeban level.

R: 220 / I: 34 / P: 1


What file types do we don't support that you would like us to add?

Making an official thread to keep on top of this better. Most of these are relatively easy to add.

I'm not quite sure why LynxChan has a filter on these. It maybe easy to start a list of what we don't want.

EDIT: This is now the /pol/ containment thread

Hi dear site owners,

We have a problem with /pol/. One of our newly appointed mods is apparently the "nigger spammer" who is using Tor to bump old threads. I am suspecting the BO and the mod to be either one and the same person using different VPN mod accounts or BO has hi-jacked the board to crash it by employing his friends or family members.

Right now i was banned for exposing the new mod to be the spammer himself in the board own meta thread. As you may understand /pol/ is a NS board which is targeted by so many groups of people.
While the new mod is creating dozens of "honey pot" threads old popular threads were slid and /pol/ is dying.
The board is dying and I don't know what we suppose to do.
Some posts and threads are deleted, I myself was banned in the meta thread. The mods are creating a chaos and they they use it to ban random people and lock and delete unwanted threads.

The BO himself has developed the tactic to let the mods do the job for him so he keeps his clean image. Once a mod has messed up the board far enough he simply replaces him (likely with the same guy by deleting the old mod account and creating a new one. Ocolette is owning the board for approximately 5 months now and it has become same bs as 8/pol/ were people are getting banned unfairly and for ridiculous reasons.

I have taken screenshots and archived all evidence. I'm ready to upload it if required.
People are now leaving /pol/ in big numbers and I ask you to help to save the board from Ocolette and his moderation.

2018 christmas special thread

Christmas is coming up fast and that means it's time to start picking out material for the Third Annual Endchan Christmas Special. For those of you who missed it last time, every year we stream Christmas movies, Christmas cartoons and whatever random shit we thought would be funny to celebrate the anniversary of the site. Post any cool shit you want to see streamed next month in this thread.

Working list so far:
>How the Grinch Stole Christmas
>He-Man christmas special
>dankey kong country christmas special
>other random christmas cartoons as we find them
>video game TASes that break the game in half
>MostOffensiveVideo Kwanzaa specials

I'm also thinking that we should do some kind of video game event after we run out of stuff to stream, so any ideas on that front (besides Doom of course) would be most welcome.

A plan for cleaning up board bloat

I've been considering changing the way endchan handles boards. I think it's obvious at this point that completely free board creation and completely soverign BOs doesn't really work; judging from 8chan you just get a massive graveyard of unused boards with none of the independence people were raving about back in 2014. Basically you get redchanit. On the other hand I think it's self-evident that letting users moderate themselves and have input on board creation is a good idea. I want to see what you guys think about it, but here's what I'm thinking of as a broad-strokes plan right now:

>1. Nuke all the zero-post boards so the site looks like less of a ghost town
>2. Start compiling a list of boards to keep
>3. Turn off board creation for normal accounts, set up a process for topic splitting (where there's enough traffic for a topic to justify its own board; think /tg/ splitting off of /b/ in the ancient days of 4chan) and refugees from other sites to get their own boards
>4. Add a "don't be a shit BO or you're getting ejected" clause to the global rules
>5. Delete the small and dead boards that didn't make the list from 2, giving plenty of warning so people can archive their favorite threads

I think that this way we'll get some of the promised benefits that the "redchanit" model was supposed to give imageboards (BOs that actually give a shit, a board list that reflects posting activity) and not the bullshit.


So, what do you guys think? picture unrelated

connections closed and ranged requests

There's an old unresolved problem with the onion frontend (at least): when downloading large files the server closes the connection after 10MB or so have been transferred, leaving the file truncated.

For certain kinds of files it's possible to workaround this bug by resuming the download at the position it was interrupted. The connection will get closed again after another 10MB or so. Repeat until the file is complete.

However, for fuck knows what reason, StephenLynx decided to use a whitelist for mime types allowed to be requested in ranges, so that workaround doesn't always work. He came to his senses at some point and dropped that nonsense, but Endchan still uses the whitelist.

So 2 issues:
1. The server closes connections after a few MB.
2. Remove the whitelist in src/be/engine/gridFsHandler.js.

Board Claim Procedure

Hi I sent an email to to claim a board >>/netsec/, but I haven't heard back regarding it. Is there a new contact procedure? If so where / how?



The contact page has no current email info. Is IRC the new way to contact? or Operate?

Also it would be nice to have a board claim request feature within the account space of Endchan itself. Like under Create Board, you could make a space for Claim Board. And this would check against its claimable status and submit a request to the administrator, or automatically reassign it under certain conditions.

Anyhow I'd like to claim >>/netsec/. Let me know if this is possible. Thanks.

The great Endchan reconstruction has now officially begun.

We're now in the middle of our 3rd year. We're still one admin down, Balrog has also been extremely busy and while I've tried to be responsive, I've been less and less. So basically we've been 2 half admins of the 3 we're supposed to have. And after some discussion with Balrog, we think we've made an error; We never trusted any one with any power. We never took any chances growing our site. And I think for this site to continue, we're going to need to take some chances and recruit some fresh blood.

We want to build a team of passionate community members to improve the site.

We're looking for:

- Javascript Developers
- HTML developers
- Linux (Devuan-based) system admins with experience with pm2, node and mongo
- Janitors
- Creators (artists, designers, memes, music, videos, etc)
- Community builders

Why you should apply:
- perserve Endchan
- improve our community and site
- learn something

How you apply:

We all need to get to know one another. Some sort of chat is probably best. I'm thinking our IRC room is the most accessible and least bothersome. So for now it's the #endchan room on Rizon (, links on the top bar).

We understand we're probably going to make mistakes but like stated we're going to need to take risks to take us to the next level to ensure Endchan is going to be an institution. We plan to watch new recruits like a hawk and take action as quickly as we can. I think the worst that can happen is that we lose all the content, so I'm going to be working on a new backup system.

Please reply with your comments, questions, feedback and I hope to see some new nicks in the IRC room.

USA and China with few billion dollars can bruteforce onion v2 address in days!
And any old non-curve cipher.
>.onion Address | 2^(5*length-1) / hashspeed
> Ebit E10 | 18,000,000 MH/s
>Radeon 6850 301.4
yep, ~59722 times faster on a bitcoin double SHA-256.
for 'unit' it should be 35832780 MH/s.
(AMD Radeon HD6850 600 MH/s on scallion)

Quick calculations:
With 1 MH/s you need 6996098493141 days.
With 35832780 MH/s you need 195243 days.
(For one unit with ~5500 price at start.)
With 5000 units and roughly ~27,2M $ you can do all job in 40 days.
But there is 25,000 machines!
And states and china definitely can make something for ciphers bruteforce.
With 25K machines you can brute full 16 symbol onion in 8 days.
I think, bruteforce any old non-curve ciphers in ~week for 180M $ worth it
and governments can pay even some billions for that (for complex goals).
600 billion $ for US and ~166 billion $ for china
'Bruteforce facility' very plausible thing.

Thats why v3 address longer and based on elliptic curve cipher.

Arguments For The Deletion of /pol/ and /news/

"Here we go again", one might say in their mind as they read the title of this post, reflecting on the many threads of the past that attempted the same task of eradicating /pol/, but I am confident in my ability to fight for my side. In many other imageboards, one can observe the influence of /pol/ and other politically oriented boards on the other boards of the website where content which is questionable by those who frequent /pol/ is posted. It is because of /pol/ that 4chan and 8chan gained coverage on many news websites and television channels as "alt-right" and "neo-nazi" websites with Pepe, a once harmless memetic being, turned into their mascot of hatred and deceit. Similar to the furfags of the past and present, they claim to be under attack and oppressed when presented with that which does not exist within their polticial beliefs, and calls anyone who refutes their points with facts and logical arguments as "shills" and "trolls". The world today is significantly different than the world of the past, and their attempts to bring forth an archaic and failed ideology to seize the present is a most futile attempt that only serves to represent their pathetic nature and blindness. As a quick recap, the points I have defined above shall be outlined here:

1)Those who frequent /pol/ often fail to assimilate within the cultures of other boards and apply their beliefs to places where they need not be present.
2)/pol/ has resulted in the influx of malicious users to 4chan and 8chan due to their actions being documented by the media.
3)Claim oppression when presented with ideas and facts that contradict their own.
4)Refer to those that present differing facts or argumentative refutations as "kikes" instead of dissecting and countering the argument if counterable.
5)Attempts to bring forth an archaic and hateful ideology that serves as a means separate different peoples and initiate war and conflict.

Like all logical and sound arguments, these points will not be easily counteracted, and when read by the odilitime, shall result in the deletion of /pol/ by their discretion.

uptime drama continues

On June 28th, our hosting company started to migrate us to their Switzerland datacenter without notice, they estimated 5 days of downtime.
On June 29th, we were given some options. We could either stay down until monday and then moving everything ourselves over or wait a few couples and they would just copy what we have but we'd be given a new IP.
I opted for the few hours of down time, since we can change IPs quickly.
Late on the 29th, I asked how it was going, didn't get a response until the 30th that things were slow.
Late on the 30th, I asked about status, got an update on the 1st that the copy was done.
I was told we were back online but we weren't. I had to wait until late July 1st to get this resolved with their support.
Also the new server is a bit slow because they're still moving sites over to it.

At least we won't have the billing transfer issues on the 5th like we used to. Hopefully things will stay stable after all this nonsense.

files repetition in /pone/

Hi owners,
I have a certain petition to ask. In /pone/, we are having trouble to upload the same files but in different threads. Once one image is posted, the same one cannot be uploaded anywhere else and while there are a lot of images to post, it´s certainly annoying for some situations. The R9K message appears and the reply absolutely blocks the reply.

Could you adjust the archives and instead of blocking them globally in the board, just limit them for one thread so we can repeat them and not feel restricted all the time, especially after the image file fiasco?

Thank you if anyone can reply to this.

Things have been shit on the temporary servers we had to move to due to the lack of donations.
Sybil LTD ( ) has come to our rescue and offered us bigger VPS for free.

We've decided to simplify things and consolidate. We just finished this migration today, we had been working on it for a couple weeks now. We are now hosted in the EU on 4 core, 2.1ghz, 4gb of ram, 500gb SSD VPS

We now have a simpler config:
- no encrypted drives which means no need to wait for an admin to type in passwords for things to start automatically
- should have less power problems than our previous temporary servers
- no more frontend/backend servers, we now have one server and one server alone. This means:
- no more 5th of the month, bill isn't paid west frontend goes down
- no more Communication with Backend has gone down

We have removed i2p and eu access. We traded the EU VPS for this bigger one to run the entire site. Additionally, we're going to start forcing HTTPS. Also we're moving to block open proxies and botnets from posting.

We'll be upgrading LynxChan next.

LynxChan just completed it's third year and I must say, this project's past year was pretty good. More and more sites running it, including 2 more that migrated and have a considerable amount of traffic. 1.9 and 2.0 fixed it's oldest woes, eliminating slow build times entirely and making the cache much more robust.

Moving forward, I have realized that user-owned boards just didn't caught on. To this day, endchan is still the only LynxChan with relevant traffic that allows it. While I don't think it's worth doing a 180 on how settings and features work to change the focus of the engine, I am going to focus on improving features that benefit sites without user-owned boards. For this, I really encourage chan owners to bring me suggestions of areas that can use improvement for these sites.

I'd like to take this time to thank everyone who contributed this past year. Megamilk, for giving 1.8 and later versions a proper real-world testing. Odilitime for taking his time to test 2.0, which revealed a serious bug. And fapchan for giving a proper migration to be performed, it really helped to pave the way for future migrations.

I'd also like to remember past contributors such as lleaff for giving valuable insight on the very early stages of development, dunecoon for his work with front-ends and doke for designing the face of the project.

I had a development server breached that I had an old development copy of the Endchan database (without media).

All users are advised to change their passwords ASAP.

Development server was breached used an redis/ssh exploit. Redis was installed and usually ran as a user but recently doing some development work, I accidentally started it up as root to look something up and left it running. Redis then can write to your ssh keys and insert unwanted keys and allow root access. All files in /root and /home were removed and a note was left:

>Hi, please view here: for information on how to obtain your files!

Luckily I have bandwidth logs on that box and I can see there was nothing transferred out of the box. So my guess is they just deleted the files. The nature in which they left the machine leads me to believe this was an automated attack (plenty of other meaningful data directories were left alone).

The copy of Endchan's data is left untouched on this development server. However the dump that was used to transfer the copy was still likely in the /root directory that was deleted. I will get the date of the data copy as soon as I can do some data recovery on that machine, I estimated the copy to be an early 2016 Q2 dump. This server is now offline.

At Endchan, we want to be as transparent as we possibly can and even though we do not believe anything was leaked, we cannot rule out nothing happen with 100%. And even if we could be certain that nothing was at risk, we still want to report anything of this nature to our users.

I fucked up, I'm sorry for any troubles this may and has caused any of you.

Please let us know any questions you may have.

I messed up during the migration. While waiting for the final database copy, I thought I'd upgrade/patch some servers, unfortunately I upgraded the box I was copying from. And I rebooted it without thinking about it. Now I manage around 20 servers that run hundreds of containers, so keeping track of everything isn't as easy as if I just had a couple. Also in my day job I get paid to professional move websites all the time. I make good money doing it, so I'm not a complete newb but I have no accounting for how I made such egregious error. I had a plan and just made a mistake.

Last year when we got the dedicated server, we built state of the art encryption into it. To the normal internet it looks like a website (unlike anything like Endchan) but with a special certificate our frontend server have, it runs the Endchan site. We split the drive into 3 sections, the camouflage (fake site / web server and relay), the app (lynxchan, megud, other site utilities), and the database. Then we encrypted the app and data drives. I held the keys to app, and Balrog the keys to data. We did have the foresight to give a back up of these password to other people just incase one of us got hit by a bus. Well Balrog and his backup StephenLynx both failed to find the correct password from a year ago.

So the two events combined means we can't access the latest copy of the Endchan data. So where does that leave us, well we had a full copy from 4/19 that we were syncing with the live data during the migration time. When it stop copying, it left the database in an inconsistent state. The mongo repair tool has done a great job recovering what you see;

we have most of posts but are missing a lot of database files (a great example of why you never store images in a database; we should only be missing the new files from last week on).

I fucked up, Balrog fucked up, and StephenLynx doesn't even remember us giving him the password. If just one of 4 events had gone another direction, we would not have been here.

I proposed throwing in the towel. My recent battles with pedospammers has not been fun but Balrog put it well: "we're still one of the only imageboards worth a damn and people need us goddamn it"

I considering just running the board with no content, even thought about switch imageboard software. Balrog said we should take it to a vote and let you guys decide. But to be honest we recovered more than I was expecting and the lynxchan repair process (rebuilding HTML files) is still running (going to take a long time on these older servers).

To be clear why we migrated, our donations levels were so low, we could no longer afford that server. Our previous server was awesome, a full year of uptime (Another reason why we never needed these passwords because the machine never went down).

In retrospect our set up was probably more complex than needed but it was just an attempt to help secure you're guys data the best we could. Our new drives are no longer encrypted.

Another chapter in Endchan long lists of fuck ups but we're here and can't say we did try to do our best. (Why is there two new topic buttons...)

I do like the site. But you could be doing better updating/bug fixing. This site has really good potential seriously. Does the hosting cost this much cause of the massive file size?

Migrating From Mewch to Enchan

Hello I don't know if this is the correct place to post.

I am migrating from after they disabled board creation.

I require a few changes to be able to migrate successfully:

1. I need to be able to disable file upload and canvas on my board. I want my board text-only.
2. I have hundreds of flags to upload and multiple boards to migrate. I would like the flag uploader dialog to be modified so I can drag an entire folder of flags onto it and it uploads all the flags, with each flag name defaulting to the filename of the flag minus the extension.
3. I need board pages.

That is all. If you can add these things I will be able to successfully migrate to my new home,

Not absolutely necessary but I'd also like a way to restrict my board to tor-posting only for anonymity purposes. If everyone using my board is forced to use tor it becomes harder to tell us all apart than if some people are on VPN, some on proxies, some on bare IPs, etc.

If this is the wrong place to post then tell me where to post about this.

Front Page Image Problem

Normally I do not condone censorship. However it has come to my attention spammers are posting very disgusting, repulsive images on certain boards and it comes up on the front page for all to see. Some of which is illegal, such as CP and animal cruelty.

I am politely suggesting that front page images should exclude a few boards such as /loli/ and /zoo/ and /pone/. The boards would still exist, but would not be able to tarnish the reputation of this website or disgust the average user.

Why should the owner allow pictures of naked children and crushed animal penises to be flaunted on the main page?

2nd Birthday

Today Endchan is 2 years old.

Sorry feeling a bit down atm but I wanted to say something to commemorate this event. This isn't quite what I'd normally write for an event like this but it'll do. I had actually considered using this landmark to officially quit but I just can't. I love this community too much to put them in someone else's hands. I've put too much work in and fought too many battles to call it quits now. But it's been really hard being the only active admin, doing all the sysadmin and coding. This really is a labor of love.

- We've had success with am, ggrevolt, tech, pol, librejp, news and sp
- We've had our domains taken away and we've gotten our main back
- Several attacks and we're still standing
- We've implemented a lot of features

- We've made mistakes and hopefully we've proved that we've learned from them.
- Running a site like this is a never ending job that can feel thankless especially when dealing with haters
- Our HTML/CSS could use improvement. It says something that each of our major boards override the default CSS.

- We're planning to upgrade to LynxChan 1.9 in January

Special thanks to the few active globals we have.

Here's to 2 more years!

Text To Speech

For those blind individuals who frequent this website

The lack of a text to speech feature is evidence of discrimination against blind individuals and this will result in the reputation of this website being degraded!

Under the checkbox of a post, you could include a small speaker icon, that when pressed, will state all of the text contained within a post using the voice of the observers choosing. Did I forget to mention? It would also be a good idea to include different voices, a female voice, a male voice, and your robotic voice, or even a custom voice uploaded by the user with a sound file for each phonetic vowel, so the website can piece the vowels together to form coherent statements.

/news/ content is controlled by its BO. Therefore Odili, you're in a way forcing one persons content on the entire site. This is retarded.

>B-but the BO promised to let all sorts of n-news!

Please. We all know every person, no matter how hard they try, will be biased.

Instead it would be smarter to let users customize their home page and choose which board(s) appear there.

Since I'm a tor user I probably won't be able to customize my home page, so once again the default home page shouldn't feature /news/ or any other board for that matter.

Also you're stupid.

Stolen Board

What the fuck, Admins? Why did my board get stolen? I rightfully claimed it after the old BO abandoned it. I thought this site was supposed to be better than 8chan? Balrog had no right to take it from me, I hadn't abused my admin powers, hell, I didn't even have time to. All I did was make some cosmetic changes as a joke and make a thread showing the change in ownership.

Balrog Even admits he went around site policy to do this, with some BS excuse about "fucking" with users, even though I did nothing beyond what I already said. I didn't realize I had to run MY board the way someone who didn't even fucking want it anymore wants it to be run.

And I've tried emailing Odili about this before making a thread, since he was the one who gave me the board, but he seems to be ignoring me.

Since odilitime went ahead and globalbanned the niggerspammer on /pol/ for sending so many requests he started to DoS the site database, I'm changing global rule 3 to reflect that.

The new rule 3 is: No spamming; no flooding that compromises normal operation of the site.

Or in other words, don't send your spambots here, and don't shitpost so hard you break the goddamn site for everybody. Unless you're actively trying to do this because an anon hurt your feelings or something this change should mean absolutely nothing to you.

how to stop the cp spam

Some ideas to help stop or at least slow down the cp spam. If you could implement a way to ban the urls that are getting posted from getting posted again. 4chan, 420chan a lot of chans spitout a ban for certain links automatically, since these are cp links there should be no qualms about doing that if it can be done. Also, if there's a way to autoban the images that get posted. Now the bots will adapt past this but these two steps would really help. Anyone else got some ideas?

R: 45 / I: 60 / P: 15

Hi odili here some serious questions: Are IP's stored in any form or will they get deleted after some months? What about banned IP's? Do you look into the non-hashed IP's of people including guys you don't like from political or any other aspect (for example me)?

I can remember some weeks ago there was some range ban applied on /pol/ and I could see the range of the IP's I use to post on /pol/. It popped in the error message and I was able asked to blockbypass it as if I was using Tor. It happened when I spammed ocoletts /pol/. Coincidentally oclolette also talked about IP range bans in the meta exact the same time when the error message occurred. Does it means he contacted you and you tried to ban IP ranges on demand of a BO? Do you value a BO over users just because of his status? What is your relation to ocolette?

Do you have any logs like 8chan (where its logged what picture you clicked and how long you looked at it until you minimize it, etc)? It does not really matter if you delete the logs later on but are there any logs?
Are there any logs/profiles related to accounts and tags?
