>>7003 I hope they will add an option to filter by language but for now you could use the multiboard and add english speaking boards only
>>7004 Even then being able to filter out specific boards is more useful. I don't care what people are posting on /v/, I don't want to see /v/ threads on the overboard because I already actively use /v/ as an individual board. I want to use the overboard to discover threads on boards I don't use actively. Imageboards in general including lynxchan have terrible thread discovery. The only improvement on lyxnchan to thread discover is the side catalog, but it's essentially useless in its current form. It needs to also be an overboard. But I already bitched about this like 2 years ago and nothing has changed. Maybe in 6 years discovering niche threads will be viable and the activity of the site might increase 20%. More likely is that the site will be long dead.

8chan Rules Enforcement and Corner Case Rulings Compendium Anonymous Board owner 11/21/2021 (Sun) 23:49:51 Id: 0a02ed No. 4481 [Reply]
This is a locked thread for archiving the causes and outcomes of corner case rulings vis-a-vis the site's Global Rules. It may be cited as an explanation for rules and policies. The Global Rules page is the "what", this thread will archive the "why" and the "how" for specific instances.
13 posts and 1 image omitted.
Ruling14: Top Board rank manipulation. Intentionally using underhanded tactics such as hidden spam or unauthorized tools such as bots to artificially inflate a board's stats or otherwise manipulate the site's Top Board ranking system is a violation of Global Rules 3 and 4. Users found performing such actions will have their posts removed and may face sitewide bans, and Board Owners or moderators who participate in such activity may be subject to sanctions under Global Rule 3, up to and including possible loss of their board and/or User Account. >Why? Spam is spam and is always a Global matter, and it is also implicit in the site's design that the board ranking system should be fair, and return reasonably true numbers and a ranked list of boards determined by the popularity of those boards among the site's users. Allowing a user or Board Owner to "game the system" defeats the purpose of having ranked boards in the first place, diminishes one of the site's core features, cheats other boards and Board Owners out of their proper ranking spots and associated visibility, and leads to user confusion over which boards actually have more activity.
Edited last time by Acidadmin on 06/10/2022 (Fri) 16:58:03.
Ruling15: Doxing While the posting of public personal information is not explicitly forbidden by the Global Rules, we do put limitations on what can be posted or requested in order to prevent such activity from causing the site legal trouble. Additionally the doxing of site staff, board owners, and volunteers is prohibited as "harm to the site" under Global Rule 4. We broadly divide doxing into two categories: Hard dox and soft dox. Hard dox is forbidden sitewide under Global Rules 1 and 4, and includes the following types of materials: *Any personal information of someone under 18 years old *Medical records or other HIPAA-protected information *Driver's License information *Passport information *Social Security Numbers or their equivalents *Non-public financial information such as bank account numbers, crypto account numbers, or credit card information *Passwords *Unlisted, private phone numbers *Unlisted physical addresses *Personal identifying information of employers, friends, or family members who are not otherwise notable or public persons themselves *Any other personal material that was obviously acquired through an invasion of legal privacy rights

Board Owner Support and Migration Requests Codexx Root 12/13/2020 (Sun) 05:27:09 Id: abfacc No. 1651 [Reply] [Last]
This thread is for Board Owners to get support for running their boards. How do I create a board? First, you should see if the board you want to create already exists. Some boards may be marked abandoned, in which case you can put in a board claim. If the board doesn't exist, you can create one yourself. Create an account or log-in by visiting the lightning bolt symbol next to the CSS dropdown at the top of the page. Once there, make sure you have a verified e-mail address. Then, you can scroll to the bottom of the page and find the board creation section. Enter the URI, name, and a description. After you fill out the captcha and submit, you'll have your very own board. How do I claim an existing board? A board will be marked abandoned if the Board Owner has not logged in for a few weeks. Sometimes, this indicates they've gone missing. If the BO cannot be reached then we will hand the board over to a willing replacement. We recommend sending an e-mail to the administration address of 8moeadmin@protonmail.com. Please include your username on the site and the board you are requesting. How do I create custom CSS? There is an upload field on the board settings page for custom CSS. Upload your file there. Custom board assets such as background images, mascots, icons, music, etc should be posted in the appropriate thread on >>>/res/. This board is for board assets only. This way, you don't need to clutter your board with a pinned asset, or worry an uploaded image will fall off the site. How do I create custom JavaScript? This feature is currently disabled. Soon, you'll be able to request custom JS be activated for your board. You can leave that request here.

This is the official support thread for https://watch.8ch.moe/ What is this site? A place for anons to stream anything they'd like. You can stream any video you'd like, and users can join chat anonymously. Streams can also be embedded elsewhere for easy sharing. Chat is built around XMPP, so you can connect with any Jabber client. Streams are generic RTMP streams, so you can connect and view them directly. For example, you can watch a stream in VLC instead of on the website. What can't it do? So far, no emotes/images in the chat. This should be available soon. Theme support is poor. The site can have one global theme. User-selectable themes and channel-specific CSS coming soon. The site supports uploading videos and storing clips, but these features are currently disabled. If there's strong interest, I can make it available, but I'd need a way to pay for storage space. Why should I use this? The goal is to provide anons with an easy, convenient way to get a media stream. Other sites actively police uploads to enforce "community guidelines". It can be inconvenient to share some media as a result.

>>6972 >their streams break chat site-wide even when they're offline The chat daemon has been responsible for 90% of the site's instability from the beginning. The error 500 pages, the site hanging and not loading after reboots, etc, are almost entirely the chat daemon. I have a solution for that but am waiting for the site upgrade. I've been pricing things out for it all day. The server has been upgrade. It now has 8 (shared) threads, and if that isn't enough, I'm willing to try 4 dedicated threads. I'm hesitant to commit to 8 dedicated threads but as a temporary measure it might be ideal.
I went and spoke to the host of that kinoplex out of anger but apparently he genuinely didnt know he's causing issues and will find another solution if there is no way for him to use 8tv due to his high activity crashing the stream. Didnt even argue or anything, he apologized constantly and was completely unaware Now I feel like a dick lol

Effective immediately, /b/ has been reassigned under Global Rule 3. While the administration wanted to allow Silvia to retain control in order to coordinate a migration to a new site, this retention of the board was conditional on several factors, including a renewed effort to moderate rulebreaking content. These obligations have been left unmet on his end, including several days with zero moderator activity, a lack of moderation regarding certain posters who have egregiously broken global rules and evaded bans for same, and overall a seemingly concerted effort to "poison the well" and render the board unusable. As a result the adminstrative threshold for activity has been met and the issue is now considered closed, and based on the multiple chances given to fix the board's problems and the failures to follow through this decision may not be appealed. The screencaps included detail the posting of one user in particular, who was globally permabanned for creating global rule-breaking content exclusively to post on /b/, enjoying a conversation with Silvia himself earlier this morning. While ban evasion is likely quite common as we are an anonymous imageboard, Silvia chose to continue allowing him to post with the same name, even reverting bans and restoring deleted content in order to annoy global moderators, as seen in the second image. When confronted in private over the first user, a promise was made by Silvia to keep that user off the board, and that promise has not been upheld. It is worth mentioning that if the rulebreaking users such as this one had been properly banned and an effort made to at least appear to be upholding our rules, the recent rule changes that affected the /cat/ thread would not have been necessary. Allowing users to immediately continue posting under the same name makes the site look as if it does not enforce its own rules, and the host or authorities will not stick around to see the context.

I swear I used to be able to click the OP post text from the catalog and be able to scroll through it on this site. Pic related shows how you can do this on 8kun right now. Maybe you were never able to do this here and I am just confusing the two boards, but it would be nice to be able to preview the post.

Translation Thread Codexx Root 07/26/2022 (Tue) 18:26:51 Id: 434679 No. 6418 [Reply]
The purpose of this thread is to provide resources for translating the website's frontend and to provide coordination between contributors as well as developers and site staff. How does translating work? There is an English master file in the frontend that provides words and phrases used all over the site. Pages can be adapted to pull phrases from this file. To translate to another language, you take this file as a template and translate the English sentences on the right side. You must leave the left side alone, since these are identifiers. The current version of the English language pack can be found in the Master branch on our git repository: https://gitgud.io/8chan/Aleph/-/blob/master/languages/eng.json This file will be updated as more of the site is upgraded to handle translations. How do I submit my translations? Download the file linked above and edit some sentences to be in a language of your choosing. Then, upload that file in this thread with a brief explanation of what you changed. It's okay if you only do a few lines; any effort helps. The English language pack is a moving target right now, but don't let that deter you! Just use the most up-to-date version you can. Some discrepancies will cause minor display issues, but they should be easy to identify and fix. If you have any questions or require any support, please make a post detailing your problem and I will be happy to assist.

>>6602 >The name is determined by the ISO 639-3 Ah effectively. I was sure there was some norms and fr was the normative name. My bad.
>>6603 I don't get it either, and my first instinct was to name it that way, but the language headers sent by the browser use that so it keeps things consistent for debugging. I'm assuming it's derived from the English name for the home country. It's certainly not how I would name them, but a standard is a standard.
>>6583 >some translation management system as Transifex, Weblate (this can be installed on your own server) or TranslateWiki. Another option could be Crowdin (apparently it's free for open source projects).

Only solve one captcha Anonymous 08/25/2022 (Thu) 14:28:21 Id: e3bad1 No. 6606 [Reply]
If I solve a board's captcha, it should also solve the site captcha. I hate solving a captcha only for another one to pop up. It's pointless. There should be only one to solve. I understand that some boards have a per-post captcha. That would not be affected, but solving one of those would also solve the site captcha.

Beyond the bullshit, it could be useful in certain cases. In this chan it wouldn't make much sense (I think), but if you manage a chan and it runs on a VPS with space limitations, then it would be necessary to save every MB you can. One way to achieve this would be with some option to indicate in which format by default to save the images that come from the clipboard (png, jpg or webp), perhaps along with an explanation of the pros and cons of each. >>6723 >Imageboards thrive on the ability to use lossless, artifact-free formats But that does not mean that it can be used for everything indiscriminately.

Clicking on an image expands it. Clicking it again collapses it. That is the expected behavior, so all good. However, if you click the same image again, it not only expands it, but also scrolls it to top of screen. It should not scroll to top of screen.
It's this code in thumbs.js: var expanded = link.getElementsByClassName('imgExpanded')[0]; if (expanded) { thumb.style.display = 'none'; expanded.style.display = ''; thumbs.scrollToPost(link); //THIS IS THE CODE; REMOVE THIS } else { var expanded is undefined on the first click, so it skips the condition that scrolls to the post. On the second click, it returns an element reference, so goes into the condition.
