2.6 Changelog Codexx Root 08/02/2021 (Mon) 07:42:53 Id: 70ccc8 No. 3436 [Reply] [Last]
Changelog 2.6.0: Libertarian Edition Policy You may now request your board have custom JavaScript enabled. All custom JS must be non-obfuscated and compatible with the AGPLv3 license so both users and admins can check for malicious usage. You may not redirect users off-site, nor track them in any way. A number of pages have had their wording corrected. These pages have now been vetted by an attorney. "Wrong or Expired Captcha" should now occur less often. Style & Markdown CSS has been reworked. There should now be fewer files and a simpler hierarchy to traverse, along with less contradictory rules. This may break compatibility with some themes, but fixing them should be easier than making them. Please look at any of the site themes for an example of how to style a custom CSS file. Dice rolls now support adding and subtracting, and have had some bug fixes. Lain Theme Added Moe OS Theme Added Secret Themes Added Fixes Fixed some features not working correctly with replies added by WebSockets. Captchas should no longer reflow the page

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.

A Brief Reminder of Fallback Measures Acid Board owner 06/05/2021 (Sat) 04:38:27 Id: fc16f1 No. 3004 [Reply]
Greetings. With the recent drama passed, I have had some anons contacting me asking if there is a plan or plans on how the site would deal with any sort of major trouble or deplatforming event. Many of you who were here during the "Esther" era already know that we have multiple fallback setups, but it was suggested to me to make a post reminding the oldfags about them and informing the newfags that they exist. If 8moe should go down for a significant time (more than a couple hours) any reason, keep an eye on the site's Twitter and the meta boards of the other imageboard sites. We'll bring updates to the inevitable topics. >If the main domain should be deplatformed <Use the backup domain at https://8chan.se >If THAT somehow gets taken down, which is unlikely as its handled by the guys who handle TPB, we will spin up the https://8chan.cc domain from a Chinese "bulletproof" registrar. >If we lose Cloudflare, the most likely weakpoint in our current setup <We will switch over to the host's in house CDN for DDoS protection. The site will be down for a few hours to a day as the DNS records update, and we'll have to spend a day or two adjusting some settings. Not a big deal. >Its the end of the world and all the domains got yanked. <Access us via the .onion link and Tor Browser/Brave/Dissenter, or visit the proxies on Redchannit. We can spin up tor gateways on redchannit.net, .org, .com, and .xyz on short notice.

Redchannit / Project Crescent Isle 2.0 Acid Board owner 12/13/2020 (Sun) 06:51:12 Id: 012171 No. 1653 [Reply]
Original Thread Archive: https://archive.is/Y2T07 Welcome to the official Project Crescent Isle thread. This thread is only for Crescent Isle/Redchannit/Tor related issues including: >System updates >Bug reports >User feedback >Questions, comments, and technical support In the classic Dreamcast RPG Skies of Arcadia, the heroes are a band of Blue Rogue air pirates; swashbucking heroes pursued across the world by an evil empire. In the middle of the game the party discovers a tiny, uncharted island in the corner of the map and they turn it into a hidden fortress paradise. A base of operations, safely hidden from their enemies in a place called Crescent Isle. What is Crescent Isle? It is a clearnet portal to 8chan's tor server (.onion) created by combining a specially configured proxy server called Tor2Web with an HTTP Accelerator cache, all hosted on a dedicated server and with its own domain. What does it do? It allows anons to potentially post on any number of imageboard .onions from the clearnet, using any browser and viewing/posting from anywhere, without needing to use Tor Browser themselves. And they can do it almost as fast as using the site on the clearnet due to the aggressive dynamic caching system that front-loads things like thumbnails and CSS.

>>1699 This is the most niggerlicious idea I've ever seen. It doesn't provide shit for "security benefits" and you know it. Do you really think you're some god of decentralization and security because you made an ass backwards clearnet->tor bridge? All this does is make it easier for phoneniggers to post when the clearnet site goes down. It's a retarded and insubstantial PR stunt, only better than Bitchute's nonexistent P2P and whatever piece of shit Ron was hyping up on 8coon by the fact that it actually does exist.

Why is it that when I type the direct 8chan URL directory like https://8chan.moe/b or https://8chan.moe/v I get 404 errors but if I go to the 8chan homepage and then click on the link for /b/ or /v/ or whatever board I wish to see, it works fine?
Because they've sacrificed usability in an attempt to avoid the site being taken down as anyone linking to a specific page to showcase why it needs to be deplatformed will just result in a 404. Just like with Jim this site prioritizes keeping the site up at the expense of anything else, it's motto might as well be "avoid infamy".
>>3391 You should have no trouble accessing /v/ and most other boards directly. Eventually, the block should become less restrictive.
>>3392 good one

Site Meta Update Acid Board owner 05/12/2021 (Wed) 05:38:29 Id: 196953 No. 2514 [Reply] [Last]
SITE META UPDATE 5-12-2021 Well this has been a fun week. I had one of these coming down the pipe anyway since we're over a month from the last one, and considering the current headaches this seems like as good a time as any. Before I go over the usual boring stuff I'll get straight to the issue of the day: /hebe/, their content on /b/ and elsewhere on the site, free speech, and the recent waves of spam. In short, our position is this: Pedos have a right to free speech, but do not have a right to possess or share unlawful content especially on our site. Global Rule 2 has always been quite strong, in my opinion and gave the staff and BOs some leeway to use common sense when removing material or banning users who post borderline material. Leeway is good. Good faith is also good. It means when we doubt what you post, it gets removed but you don't get banned, we don't assume you're a pedo, and nothing else comes of it as long as you don't repost it. Users have a little freedom to make honest mistakes, because the law in this area is murky, grey, and largely untested (yet must be followed.) So we do the best we can. Unfortunately this leeway has been translated into ambiguity about the content allowed under Global 2, which allowed for the rise of /hebe/, the appearance of their target audience, and outsiders from places as varied as /tvch/, /cow/, anonib, and "CIA Triad Security LLC" some of whom have proceeded to cause problems sitewide on both that board and the global level for going on three days. Much of this drama is manufactured in my opinion, and our concern level is low but we owe our anons and board owners a clear response. Please direct your attention to the new, much more specific Global Rule 2. This now hard-codifies what our base restrictions are and have been, but names the particulars. BOs are free to take a harsher stance if they so choose, but these will be the guidelines for global enforcement going forward. That said: We will not be deleting or removing /hebe/ so long as they operate in accordance with the rules. If they wish to have a board purely for discussion of their preferred interests, it is not our place to judge them for that or deny them provided they are in accordance with the Global Rules and the law. Free speech means free speech. Linking or making available unlawful material is already itself unlawful, and is covered fully by Global Rule 1 already. The rest of the site meta stuff Very little to report, honestly. We have received no warrants or court orders since the last update, the hosts and server are doing well, we took on the nice little community at /hisparol/ who have made themselves at home and the site has experienced two months of steady growth. Codexx is working on further improvements for Lynxchan 2.6, and I have a server OS upgrade scheduled for sometime next month that will probably cause a day of downtime, which we will announce well in advance. If anything comes to mind that I forgot, I'll edit it into this OP. As usual this will be merged into the meta sticky after a week of visibility. Onward and upward.

>>3239 >just clean my site up janny No man. Like I don't like looking at child porn. Okay? And I am not going to keep doing it just to keep you out of jail.
>>3240 It's not child porn. Quit crying.
<Stupid text rule is gone <Something else retarded takes its place >All depictions of fictitious characters are 18+ years of age regardless of any contradicting textual description(s). AyyyLMAO. Literally fucking no one, not the law or consumers of the content, actually believes authors when they say "all characters 18", even if you are the creator, and beyond that you're not the creator, retard. Adding a statement like this is implies you have some level of authorial control over the content on this site. Not only is that patently false, since the content is user generated or taken from creators entirely outside this site, THIS IMPLIES YOU'RE A PUBLISHER/CREATOR OF THE CONTENT, NOT A PLATFORM. I strongly suggest you remove this entire sentence immediately. You still haven't fixed the line that implies conflating lolicon and pedophilia is a global ban, even though it isn't.

When typing it into the URL bar it brings up a 404 page. This doesn't happen when clicking on a link from elsewhere on the site (only works when there is a referrer header?). And the 404 page is different to the one shown when you go to a board that doesn't exist. Pic related.
