PSA: Block bypass has been enabled for some IPs Balrog Board volunteer 05/17/2016 (Tue) 14:23:15 [Preview] No. 4154 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
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.

This is the 5th time I tried upload a huge ass file on TOR,
and the captcha expires before it can finish uploading.
Is there a fucking way it can verify the captcha first,
then attempt or fail&report to upload the file?!?
This isn't blockBypass.js cookie, this is board-post captcha.js/captchaImage.

This shouldn't even be a bloody problem: You want to upload a file?
First checkbox you want to upload a file,
write your message,
click take me to upload.js,
and copy and past this key.

If should instantly fail if it detects a banned file type by just the header,
e.g. .exe, .elf, .out, etc., and reply back such, and link you back to your
thread.
I prefer the open window/tab method.

They need to change the 30 second captcha refresh mandate to at least 2 or 3 minutes. I think this would help, usually when it starts uploading as long as its the same captcha it will successfully post. Sometimes big files take more than 30 seconds to begin uploading and thats when it refreshes and fucks up the post.

1: the captcha expiration is configurable
2: the FE can pre-solve a captcha to make it last for one hour.
3: the FE can access the cookie that says when the captcha expires so users can have it to auto refresh or at least know when it expires.



FILE SUPPORT THREAD odilitime Board owner 01/23/2016 (Sat) 08:43:14 [Preview] No. 1017 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
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.

IF YOU ARE HAVING PROBLEMS, TEST HERE AND LET USE KNOW THE MIME TYPE YOU GET:

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.

I never once said JIDF and the CIA are out to get me. I have said on /pol/ that if any former CIA speak out against international jewry, that's a bonus for us. Shills have tried to depend on "the paranoia of anti-semites" by shrieking CIA about many public speakers revealing ZOG. They don't phase me. You still make shit up and think it helps, also claiming I'm G_C somehow. You're actually this retarded.

On 2.2 the json api features were merged into the form api and removed afterwards.
So not only the json input was removed, bu also the json output of the form api was remade. The refactoring is finished and penumbra has been adapted.

2.2 is scheduled to be released on march of 2019.

2018 christmas special thread Balrog Board owner 11/18/2018 (Sun) 01:36:41 [Preview] No. 10084 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
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
>Futurama

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.

Trading Places is not so much a "Christmas film" but it does take place around the Christmas holiday and I believe they do celebrate Christmas near the end of the film. It is a funny film too. Clip below:

A plan for cleaning up board bloat Balrog Board owner 08/23/2018 (Thu) 21:58:07 [Preview] No. 9674 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
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.

NONE OF THIS IS GUARANTEED TO HAPPEN. THIS IS JUST A TEST BALLOON AT THIS STAGE.

So, what do you guys think? picture unrelated

Would it be possible to have a compromise? How about privating all zero activity boards over deleting them outright. Keep the handful of boards who are active and still have new board creation, but make it a trial period and delete them or private them if they are abandoned. I understand the leeriness of scraping board creation but I also think that the admins need to be able to manage things and if endchan wants to grow it'll have to get a better image, looking like a wasteland isn't going to be good for the board either.

I haven't visited endchan in several months. Do to IRL stuff. It was a bit of a shock to see the site now. It'd be a shame to see this site go, especially with how bad 4chan is getting (yes, already is shit, but with the separation of the sfw and nsfw boards and how they are getting ready to sellout fully and become fully reddit) that could eventually effect 8chan as well. It'd be good keep this place up, as this is opportunity for growth in the future.

If you scroll to somewhere around the middle of the thread the game plan is to nuke the zero-post boards and the boards that have had absolutely nothing happen since 2015. Then maybe delete some of the dead-but-not-totally-dead boards. Maybe. Restricting board creation isn't on the roadmap right now because people in the thread put in some good points in favor of leaving it unrestricted. Need to get some more arguing in and maybe do a trial of the exodus-board idea (without actually restricting board creation) before deciding either way. Right now we're doing stage 1 of fixing our shit (fixing our broken ass DB, which is why the site is slow as shit while we export) and generally getting the site back in shape to get ready for the oncoming shitstorms.

Also I don't think lynxchan can really "do" locking down entire boards without an addon, but I suppose it's worth a shot. We could also just publish a dump of the affected boards if that's the course we end up taking.

OdiliTime is finally beginning the process of fixing the database so we can upgrade lynxchan, update our frontend and fix our fucking shit. The first step is exporting the database contents so we can put them back in an unfucked database, which is contesting access to the existing DB with lynxchan. That's where the 500s are coming from. Once the DB is unfucked and we're on a recent version of lynxchan 500s should be a thing of the past. Hang in there, baby.
