At some point you have to wonder whether to pull the plug on a website that can't be accessed for more than half the time.

The great Endchan reconstruction has now officially begun.

We're now in the middle of our 3rd year. We're still one admin down, Balrog has also been extremely busy and while I've tried to be responsive, I've been less and less. So basically we've been 2 half admins of the 3 we're supposed to have. And after some discussion with Balrog, we think we've made an error; We never trusted any one with any power. We never took any chances growing our site. And I think for this site to continue, we're going to need to take some chances and recruit some fresh blood.

We want to build a team of passionate community members to improve the site.

We're looking for:

- Javascript Developers
- HTML developers
- Linux (Devuan-based) system admins with experience with pm2, node and mongo
- Janitors
- Creators (artists, designers, memes, music, videos, etc)
- Community builders

Why you should apply:
- perserve Endchan

Currently we're a charity case for Sibyl LTD, which as far as I can tell (Miao is welcome to correct me here) is basically a few dudes selling VPSes out of multiple colo racks in the Netherlands (one of the less blatantly totalitarian EU countries that have good Internet infrastructure) and Switzerland. He temporarily moved operations to all Switzerland after the first Article 13 scare so if that piece of shit actually gets ratified he'll probably move them again.

As such our current bill is rather indeterminate. I don't know odili's domain situation that well but endchan.xyz is paid up for two more years unless the registrar increases their rates and otherwise sufficiently cheap that I can reasonably pay it out of pocket. Steady money on top might convince him to devote more resources to our VPS that would otherwise go to paying customers. Since the primary symptom of the 500 error spam is a huge increase in disk activity, switching to an SSD might further mitigate the problem until Odili finishes his real fix for example.

Failing that any additional money you give us could be used as a "rainy day fund" for, say, a temporary frontend proxy if someone decides to shit fury on us again. With the server situation more or less stable we're more or less in the same situation as bibanon wrt donations: more money is always useful for when shit hits the fan, but the things we need that money can't buy are technical help, low-key shilling and admins that we can trust. If you want to put a big donation down maybe we could post an ad on BountySource or similar for a program to unpack LynxChan databases, that would probably make the DB rebuild happen a lot earlier than it normally would. (Hey, does NTTech's self-serve ad service still allow ads from competitors? That might be a funny way to get some people to migrate. "Endchan! 100% Jim-free!")

I need to know the following
NON-JS users: do you prefer animated GIFs thumbs or static thumbs?

The only way I can make it configureable for NON-JS would to be to require a log in for setting storage and I don't think any one wants to have to log in to get their settings. Also let me know if I'm wrong on that too.

Which is really strange because we only has 2 spinning rusts on the original server. I guess it's double the read even though it takes a hit on the write speed. But you think posting a message would need write speed not read... But it's lynxchan nothing surprised me about how it performs. I'll try working on updating the software since I don't have to worry about user traffic now, we can return to our original state of a dead board with no users.

I would not be surprised a "free" VPN service blocks sites like this. As they say, "nothing is really free" so beware of those "free" VPNs as they might be honeypots set up by some alphabet agency.

My private VPN service is cheap as fuck and I have not been blocked once, I can shut it on or off when I desire, or change my IP any time I choose. No logging policies and military grade end-to-end encryption included with the private VPN service. Well worth the measly cash spent.

THIS. The same tranny spammer began wrecking /b/ recently, after trying to wreck /news/ and a few other boards too. This spammer is an asshole, he is not funny, he deliberately wrecks boards and sabotages any conversation likely because he's too autistic to create a conversation himself. If you dare trigger the spammer, he'll spam dicks all over the thread. If you try holding a debate, same fiasco will likely unfold. If you speak your mind and he even thinks you are criticizing him, he'll spam more dicks. If you try to counter or report his spam, he'll just spam more and more until his proxy IP ranges are banned. Its not funny, there is nothing humorous about being such a spastic lunatic.

I just saw him spamming /AM/ the other day. Did report it to their BO. I don't know why he is so obsessed with male genitalia - perhaps he really is just gay - but he just likes posting sick pics and ruining threads. Also, the guy actually claims he works for an intel agency who is "monitoring" us. So he could be crazy or perhaps he is some kind of JTRIG psyop trying to destroy his alleged "enemies" while leaching off the very taxpayers he seems to hate. Either way, sad.



Arguments For The Deletion of /pol/ and /news/ Anonymous 06/20/2018 (Wed) 05:07:05 [Preview] No. 9341 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
"Here we go again", one might say in their mind as they read the title of this post, reflecting on the many threads of the past that attempted the same task of eradicating /pol/, but I am confident in my ability to fight for my side. In many other imageboards, one can observe the influence of /pol/ and other politically oriented boards on the other boards of the website where content which is questionable by those who frequent /pol/ is posted. It is because of /pol/ that 4chan and 8chan gained coverage on many news websites and television channels as "alt-right" and "neo-nazi" websites with Pepe, a once harmless memetic being, turned into their mascot of hatred and deceit. Similar to the furfags of the past and present, they claim to be under attack and oppressed when presented with that which does not exist within their polticial beliefs, and calls anyone who refutes their points with facts and logical arguments as "shills" and "trolls". The world today is significantly different than the world of the past, and their attempts to bring forth an archaic and failed ideology to seize the present is a most futile attempt that only serves to represent their pathetic nature and blindness. As a quick recap, the points I have defined above shall be outlined here:

1)Those who frequent /pol/ often fail to assimilate within the cultures of other boards and apply their beliefs to places where they need not be present.
2)/pol/ has resulted in the influx of malicious users to 4chan and 8chan due to their actions being documented by the media.
3)Claim oppression when presented with ideas and facts that contradict their own.
4)Refer to those that present differing facts or argumentative refutations as "kikes" instead of dissecting and countering the argument if counterable.
5)Attempts to bring forth an archaic and hateful ideology that serves as a means separate different peoples and initiate war and conflict.

Like all logical and sound arguments, these points will not be easily counteracted, and when read by the odilitime, shall result in the deletion of /pol/ by their discretion.

The whole "alt-right" threat is all inside your head. No one on /news/ or /pol/ even labels themselves as such. You should really lurk around more and just read what it is we actually discuss and talk about for a change.

The only reason nationalism is rising in the first place is because your failed leftist garbage ideologies that have been imposed over the last 4 or 5 decades have fucked the hard working class more than ever before. Your 'diversity' obsessions create rampant crime waves in our streets. Your disarmament policies against citizenry prevent good people from defending themselves and their loved ones. Your whole educational system is one big fucking joke, a bankster racket that brainwashes the youth and shackles them into mass student loan debt. Most of the proposed leftist 'solutions' only increase the power and debt insolvency of an already out-of-control, corrupt and incompetent government. Every country that installs your "single payer health care systems" SUCKS, creates massive backlogs and waiting periods and lacks fundamental services for those in critical conditions. You know nothing about economics 101 or fiscal responsibility. You leftists don't seem to understand that it is the producers and workers of society that fund the government via taxes, thus the bigger the government the more insolvent it becomes and more burdensome for the average taxpayer in the long-term. You openly call for censorship of everything you don't understand or get triggered by (see OP). You believe everything your told without questioning anything and lack critical thinking - and those who do are just labeled "conspiracy theorists" as was the case since the 60s after the JFK assassination (and unlike you snowflakes today JFK was a real man of integrity, a liberal who actually stood up to globalist elitist snobs and the privileged class you THINK AND WISH to be part of, but are not)!

I understand your view, but the fact is; They’ve obeyed the rules and hence they’re allowed to have their own board. Plus /pol/ and /news/ are containment boards, if you were to shut down their board they would just discuss their political views elsewhere.

On June 28th, our hosting company started to migrate us to their Switzerland datacenter without notice, they estimated 5 days of downtime.
On June 29th, we were given some options. We could either stay down until monday and then moving everything ourselves over or wait a few couples and they would just copy what we have but we'd be given a new IP.
I opted for the few hours of down time, since we can change IPs quickly.
Late on the 29th, I asked how it was going, didn't get a response until the 30th that things were slow.
Late on the 30th, I asked about status, got an update on the 1st that the copy was done.
I was told we were back online but we weren't. I had to wait until late July 1st to get this resolved with their support.
Also the new server is a bit slow because they're still moving sites over to it.

At least we won't have the billing transfer issues on the 5th like we used to. Hopefully things will stay stable after all this nonsense.

MongoDB shat its pants in a way that Lynxchan couldn't recover from, probably because it stepped in a document that didn't exist because it wasn't salvaged from the encryption clusterfuck. It didn't get caught immediately because both of us have day jobs. The 500 errors are probably related, since I've checked the server while the site is in 500 and it usually happens when mongod is eating obscene amounts of CPU time. (Of course it could also be 500ing because mongod is a hog and we're running on a hybrid VPS, so large operations take longer than lynxchan's database timeout and trick lynxchan into retrying with a new DB connection.)

To keep this shit from continuing we need to copy the valid documents (your boards, posts, accounts, and media) from our old broken database to a fresh database that doesn't have huge fucking holes in it. This would require experimentation to find how to do it without copying the same broken references over and would almost certainly require more downtime while the copy happens, so we haven't been able to do it yet. We will do it, though, because we hate this shit too.

Things have been shit on the temporary servers we had to move to due to the lack of donations.
Sybil LTD ( http://sybil.li?ref=endchan ) has come to our rescue and offered us bigger VPS for free.

We've decided to simplify things and consolidate. We just finished this migration today, we had been working on it for a couple weeks now. We are now hosted in the EU on 4 core, 2.1ghz, 4gb of ram, 500gb SSD VPS

We now have a simpler config:
- no encrypted drives which means no need to wait for an admin to type in passwords for things to start automatically
- should have less power problems than our previous temporary servers
- no more frontend/backend servers, we now have one server and one server alone. This means:
- no more 5th of the month, bill isn't paid west frontend goes down
- no more Communication with Backend has gone down

We have removed i2p and eu access. We traded the EU VPS for this bigger one to run the entire site. Additionally, we're going to start forcing HTTPS. Also we're moving to block open proxies and botnets from posting.

We'll be upgrading LynxChan next.

because the eu frontend got upgraded and turned into the main endchan server as well as we got rid of the frontend/backend mess.

i2p was removed because I don't think it ever worked right nor did we have the support or tools to test it correctly.

It's close to free. We are going to basically give all the donations (after registrar, ssl (yes we pay for non-letsencrypt .xyz cert) and other costs) to the hosting company and they give us what we need.
