Board Owner Support and Migration Requests Codexx Root 12/13/2020 (Sun) 05:27:09 Id:abfacc No. 1651
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. I am moving my board in from another website. How can I request a migration? We're happy to move or archive boards from other websites at the board owner's request. Please contact me directly at codexx@cock.li with the name of your board on this site, a link to the board on another site, and some kind of proof you are the board owner. Generally, a screenshot of your board management page or a capcoded post on the board to be imported is sufficient. Currently we offer imports for boards on Vichan and LynxChan websites. JSChan support will arrive in the near future. What rules do I need to enforce on my board? Just the global rules, which are minimal and mostly consist of deleting illegal content. If your board is marked as Safe for Work (SFW), you will need to spoiler any images that show genitalia, scat, guro, etc. Globals will only police global rules on your board. You're welcome to add more rules on top of this, but you and your volunteers are responsible for enforcing them. How do I label my board as "Safe For Work"? Leave a request in this thread for a board to be marked as such, or send us an e-mail from your verified address. Your board must be reasonably about SFW content, and NSFW content must be spoilered so it does not show on the front page or overboard. We may label boards SFW or NSFW at our own discretion based on the average content on the board. If you would like its designation changed specifically, then please notify us of your preference. Why was captcha enabled on my board? If you set an automated captcha threshold in board settings, then captchas will be enabled on your board once a set number of posts/threads per hour limit is hit. The setting will not undo itself; you need to manually turn the captcha back off again each time. Still, we recommend setting a PPH captcha limit a bit above your usual peak PPH; this helps limit spam attacks. What if my question wasn't answered here? Reply with your question and we will try to answer as quickly as possible.
>>2752 It shouldn't be doing that. I will look into it.
how do i embed audio to autoplay on loop without a visible player? sankyu
>>2779 Also how do I add a custom font? Is there any documentation about this anywhere?
>>2779 You'd need custom JavaScript for that, and autoplay is... weird. We have some stock JS for playing music, but it has a visible player. >>2781 I believe the following would work: @font-face { font-family: fontType src: url(/.media/12345.woff); } Assuming it uploaded to >>>/res/. If it didn't, upload a copy of the font elsewhere so I can adjust the MIME list.

requesting custom.js pl0x User Name: Davey >>>/404/ when it becomes available:^)
>>2873 I've noted your request. Expect custom JS to be re-enabled when the 2.6 update drops. We're working on it. Should be done soon.

>>2874 ok, great! its nothing major. just want to torture myself with Dollchan™ one more time and then settle with my youtube_embed.js i got off of Rodent a few years ago on balkanchan. Thank!
Today 3 threads got 1 post each. I'm so happy
PPH makes my already small board look smaller 6 days a week. Can we have an additional column that shows post per week? I'm proud with having 2 per weeks.
What are the exact conditions for boards to become abandoned? Gahoole completely disavowed 8moe by unlinking it from tvch and banning people that disagree with him on that decision. /tv/ on here is completely dead, and yet it still seems like he owns it. Would it be possible for me to become its new owner?
>>2918 Is there any point to a /tv/ board? We already have >>>/vhs/ and that barely has traffic itself.
>>2919 I want to bring new life into it. I'd rather have /tv/ than /vhs/ because legacy boards will almost always attract more attention.
>>2919 Also, I'm sure I can steal at least a few posters from tvch. Gahoole is a shit owner so it shouldn't be too hard to get a least the ones that put in some effort rather than the absolute garbage shitposters.

>>2920 Yeah but /tv/ is liable to attract the sort of people who post on /tv/ and no one wants that.
>>2921 >Also, I'm sure I can steal at least a few posters from tvch. Gahoole is a shit owner so it shouldn't be too hard to get a least the ones that put in some effort rather than the absolute garbage shitposters. Well you can try but it seems like you're playing with fire. You need to have some firm rules to stop retardation.
>>2923 >You need to have some firm rules to stop retardation. obviously
>>2905 I think PPW is too much. I say counting PPD instead of PPH would make the site look less dead. >>2918 >What are the exact conditions for boards to become abandoned? Board owner not logging in more than two weeks (or a month, I don't remember).
Would a gore board be allowed? Asking this because you guys seems pretty rulecucked lately.
>>2945 With the exception of animal abuse vids that now have a holy shit Federal law against them, I don't see why not.
>>2956 >animal abuse Doesn't that law only apply if you make profit off of it?
>It shall be unlawful for any person to knowingly sell, market, advertise, exchange, or distribute an animal crush video in, or using a means or facility of, interstate or foreign commerce. >the term “animal crush video” means any photograph, motion-picture film, video or digital recording, or electronic image that— >(A) depicts animal crushing; and >(B) is obscene; and
>>2964 >the term “animal crush video” means >>(A) depicts animal crushing lol, what does that even mean
>>2967 an animal crushed what could possibly be confusing there
>>2967 >>2968 I forgot to include the definition >the term “animal crushing” means actual conduct in which one or more living non-human mammals, birds, reptiles, or amphibians is purposely crushed, burned, drowned, suffocated, impaled, or otherwise subjected to serious bodily injury See https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/48
>>2968 'member when /b/ posted guro, loli, br torture, snuff, niglets and everyone was fine, but the moment someone posted cat being kicked, thread went apeshit? I love those times
>>2979 >purposely So you can't distribute that but it's okay with humans? What kind of retarded logic is that?
>>2989 First reason that comes to mind is we don't really keep tabs on the lives of most animals. A wild squirrel or your own domestic cat, you can kill it pretty much any way you want and no one will ever look into it. With a human, people are going to look into what happened to them. So, that in mind, you could suppose gore will influenc emore people to want to do it. Animal abuse is something anyone with passing whimsy could try out, and do it a TON with no consequence. Since hurting humans is hard to get away with, whimsy is probably not going to make it happen. If it does happen, they aren't getting away with it nearly as easily. This is the only perspective that makes sense to me. It's a preventative measure, trying to stop would-be crime that is otherwise hard to find out about. Think of that what you will.
>>2989 As I understand it it only applies to commercial distribution and the only cases I can find are people who produced crush videos. It also has to be 'Obscene', but not sure whatever that exactly means.
If someone breaks global rules on my board, i.e. posting "media depicting the sexual abuse of real children", how should I deal with that? Should I just ban them from my board and delete the media, or globally report them and delete the media to make sure a global mod globally bans them? Is there any way to spoiler individual images instead of all images in a reply? Is there any way to move a reply to a thread to a different thread, similar to thread merging?
>>3072 I've always just done "delete post and media" and ban with reason "cp" or similar. It makes the most sense to me.
>>3072 >If someone breaks global rules on my board, i.e. posting "media depicting the sexual abuse of real children", how should I deal with that? Should I just ban them from my board and delete the media, or globally report them and delete the media to make sure a global mod globally bans them? Ban them on your board and submit both local and global reports if they appear to be posting on other boards as well. >Is there any way to spoiler individual images instead of all images in a reply? No. >Is there any way to move a reply to a thread to a different thread, similar to thread merging? No.
>>3072 >Is there any way to move a reply to a thread to a different thread, This thread itself is a big example of no. >>3075 >submit both local and global reports if they appear to be posting on other boards I don't have this problem but shouldn't we global report on the first instance regardless?
>>3072 >>3075 >>3089 For now, just remove what you can as soon as you see it and hand out bans as appropriate. Once the 2.6 update lands, there will be a new recommended set of steps. No ability to move posts between threads at the moment, just to merge threads.
>>1651 I would like to claim /zoo/, as it is abandoned and the previous BO claimed it for the purpose of preventing anyone from actually using it and has left file uploading disabled. I'd use a burner email for privacy purposes, but cock.li is refusing new registration and I don't feel like looking elsewhere. Account name is Cloaca. Can the administration also "confirm" my email, since I used a made up one?
>>3105 Also, there's a typo on the login page for unconfirmed e-mails. >Your e-mail haven't been confirmed yet.
