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.

The original BO lounge thread was merged with the banner thread because the topic devolved into banner ideas, so this thread will be the new BO and Volunteer lounge. Shitpost about your board and users here.
Can I still view Unlinked file? Chosing those options lead to different urls https://8chan.moe/unlinkSingle.js?boardUri= (board and threadID) =index=4 https://8chan.moe/unlinkSingle.js?boardUri= (board and threadID) =1&delete=1 so I assume these options is different. It is possible for BO to see an unlinked file?
>>2029 Unlinking a file just removes it from a post. However, if that is the only place on the site the file is hosted, it may be purged from the site entirely pretty soon after. I'm not 100% certain on unlink and delete. I believe that, globally, it can instantly remove an image, but I'm not sure if the behavior changes for BOs.
I'm BO of /ai/. It looks like 1 thread in my place is locked from bumping https://8chan.moe/ai/res/7.html#100 This is the post, I make sure sage is off. I don't use bump lock either. https://8chan.moe/ai/ index view, the thread is unbumped
>>2038 Playing around with it. It's not updating the thread's bump date in the database, despite everything working right. It's late, so I'll continue investigating tomorrow evening. Also, I tripped your PPH captcha. You'll need to manually disable it.
>>2039 Me again. I get it now I set the "non-cyclic thread bump limit" for 3 months that's why.
>>2039 > PPH captcha. You'll need to manually disable it. Just to be sure, you refer to Captcha mode, right?
>>2046 Oh, that makes sense. I forgot that was an option. Seems to be rarely used. >>2047 Yes. If either of the "Enable captcha for..." options (above tags, below thread limits) are set, and the number of posts/threads meets or exceeds the limit, then Captcha Mode will automatically be set to either Threads Only or All Posts depending on which one tripped. It will not unset itself, you must manually reset the captcha mode to None. When we update the settings layout, we'll add a warning. But it surprised a few BOs in the past when they hit a high PPH and expected it to unset itself after some time.
>>2048 > expected it to unset itself after some time I see the full picture now. Got it.

I got 2 stories related to this Smug /a/ was so infested with vtubers and people complaining about it that they went to their support Board to complain. So they make a vtuber board. Smug /a/ is fast in weird place, I don’t trust BO of this site vtuber board >>2056 >being slower than smug/a/? It was 2015/6 in 4chan/vg/. One morning (in 4chan timezone) a rogue mod delete all but 2 threads in /vg/. Dunno if he stop because a higher mod find out or it was on purpose. The 2 that doesn’t get deleted are the de facto meta thread filled with crossboarder and a dead game thread, both are my home threads.
>>2064 > I don’t trust BO of this site vtuber board Why not?
>>2064 I should've arranged my post better >>2055 I clicked when he only made 2 posts and I couldn't make a new thread. he's at 62 replies now. >>2056 I don't understand how you guess "Couldn't take being slower than smug/a/?" just from those 2 posts >>2066 Last month I check when it was newly created. The way the board is handled is like Smug, it is more like containment board. "here's your board, don't care what happen there as long as you don't post in /a/" as oppose to made by someone who care about it. That was 4 weeks ago. I check it now and nothing changes.
Is there a way to enable custom flags without location flags showing if one isn't selected?
>>2077 After talking to Stephen and playing around with it a bit, I think you do the following: >upload custom flag in Manage Flags page >set Location Flags to Disabled The behavior seems to be: >Disabled No location flags. >Enabled Location flags given by default, but custom flag will override. Users can select a checkbox to not show location, however. >Mandatory Users cannot opt out of location. Custom may override.

>>2078 Thanks, that worked.
How many posts do cycling threads hold and can the number be changed and when will it be possible to change the number.
>>2090 As far as I know, cyclic threads cap at the global bump limit. Currently, that's 600. It doesn't look like there's a way to change that. Boards with smaller bump limits do not have smaller cyclic threads. There's certainly no way to make it larger.
>>2092 how ridiculous, who wants to keep opening a thread with 600 posts in it.
>>2094 That's how cyclic has always worked. I can see about modifying it so you can reduce the number of posts in cyclics, but it will probably always be tied to the autosage limit.
What happened to my banners? Its like they all got resized to a forced, unreasonably small resolution.
>>2109 Add the following to your board's CSS: #bannerImage {height: unset !important} The new CSS prevents reflow, but you can set any height you want (or none).
How i can activate dice rolling in my board? Or The dice option isn't available for The moment?

Posting a custom CSS I made based on a theme from a dead site.
>>2195 Fixed an error with selected posts.
>>2048 > Captcha Mode will automatically be set to either Threads Only or All Posts I say this is a great anti-spam filter for BO without any volunteer. Please consider keeping this behavior as option if dev team find how to fix it.
I just created a new board (>>>/c/) that is supposed to be SFW, however, i can't find a way on the management page to mark the board as SFW. Any help?
>>2287 I just took care of that for you. When you're logged in as BO, at the bottom of every page on your board (index, catalog or individual thread) you'll see a few options. The SFW tickbox is in Moderate Board instead of Board Management. I'll mention that to the guys.
>>2288 Thanks for that. Just one thing, the "Moderate Board" option seems to be only available for global staff. Clicking on it returns a 500 error even on my own boards.

>>2293 Sometimes the e-mails have issues going through. Our current proxy configuration isn't great and sometimes it eats them. The once-per-day limit doesn't help. Usually they arrive after 30 minutes, but since it's been two days and you haven't received it I'd like to ask that you e-mail me (codexx at cock dot li) from the address you want to verify. Be sure to mention your account name. I will mark it as validated. >/uri/ or uri Any time you need to input a board URI, exclude the slashes. So creating /site/ would be done by just typing in 'site'.
All boards marked as *Abandoned* that haven't had a single post in the last three months should be deleted to free URIs and space on the board list. Change my mind. >>2294 X-D
>>2296 Sent an e-mail with the info you requested to the address you gave, obviously with at and dot replaced >(codexx at cock dot li) Let me know if you didn't get it, or need more info

/sm/'s BO here, I'd like to hear your opinions on >>>/sm/5017.
>>2322 It is an improvement for visibility and readability. The inconsistency would bother me, though. Swapping the colors globally would help keep things internally consistent, but it would then be swapped for us relative to every other site that uses a Yotsuba theme. That said, I'd be interested to see how a global swap of those two colors for highlights looks.

How do I allow javascript upload in my board? I tried these but I still can't.
If you spoilered an image as BO, how do you 'un-spoiler' it again?
Question for the admins. What's your official stance on 3DCG loli/shota porn? Every porn board has a different rule about it: /loli/ and /tot/ only allow material with an anime/cartoon style (although currently there isn't a 3DCG thread), /delicious/ rules state the same but actually allow more realistic 3DCG porn of characters from games and mods, /sm/ has a strange rule where realistic works are allowed if they have an obvious fantasy element (like known fictional characters, monsters or weird physical bodies), and /ss/ changes the rule every day (yesterday it was no 3DCG at all, and today is the same as /sm/'s). Is there a global definition on "how realistic is too realistic for the site" regarding 3DCG works that all boards can follow? Here are each boards' respective 3DCG threads so you can see the kind of content allowed on each board: >>>/delicious/184 >>>/sm/4965 >>>/ss/147 >>2325 You can't as far I know. Save them as .txt instead and tell others to change the filename.
>>2332 >Save them as .txt Okay, I will wait 1 more week in case our site got sudden update. >Every porn board has a different rule about it >mfw my board rule on that is simply no het but even that is shaky if it enter gender bender territory
>>2331 I don't think you can. And there's certainly no option to spoiler files individually. Both are on my wishlist, though. To some extent, I think the engine assumes a spoilered file won't have a thumbnail. It might, but there's a chance it couldn't. >>2332 We want to allow as much content as possible. Once you get into 3DCG, it becomes a much dicier legal area. If it looks realistic such that it looks real at first glance then it can't stay and US law treats that are identical to child porn. If it's cartoony and obviously not real then it's safe. If it depicts a real child in a 3D medium, it's my understanding that this is also illegal. Where's the line in the middle? Really hard to say. If you stick to cartoons then expect to be safe. If you push the line further and further towards realism, there's going to be a point where globals will start responding to it. At the end of the day, none of us want to study CP to determine if it's a 3D render or not.
>>2341 Welp, this certainly doesn't solve my doubts about exactly what is considered "too realistic" for the admins. There's 3DCG porn of original characters that actually try to look realistic but fail due to the lack of ability of the modeler, extremely realistic and detailed porn of fictional characters (like Sarah from TLoU), and a mix of both (fictional characters with "underage" OC). It's a complex subject that needs clear limits.
>>2342 >It's a complex subject that needs clear limits. It's hard to place clear limits on a complex subject. Don't depict real people or use them as a basis for the model. Most other content will be fine. Very few artists can produce photorealistic renders. Anything that is cartoonish or fantastical will be fine.
>>2342 If you use common sense in what you post, we'll use common sense in cutting you slack with things that might be over that blurry line by deleting them without a ban. Like it or not, the law is subjective in this matter. So we have to be subjective as well. We just want to do it without being a pain in everyone's ass, if we can.

>>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.

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.

>>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?
