Lynx Upgrade

We are asking Anon's opinon again. This time about Lynxchan engine.
As you guys probably know, Endchan is running on a modified copy of an older version. We read several posts asking us for an update, so we are curious what advantages Anon sees in the newer ones, what features are better, what are missing now?


R: 263 / I: 40 / P: 1


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.


Here's the current list:

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.

block bypass disabled

For testing purposes block bypass is turned off for 24 hours.

We are doing this experiment to strengthen our ban system.
It is very likely that Tor posting will be not available during this period.
Anyone who fell into range ban accidentally, please report in on IRC, Discord or Twitter.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

R: 60 / I: 3 / P: 1

PSA: Block bypass has been enabled for some IPs

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.

Endchan Movie Corner

Came up on the apropos of the Christmas Special that we should hold a recurring "movie night", maybe on monthly basis. We just might do that.
The first occasion would be on the 8th of February (probably would be the 9th for Australians). One movie, and maybe two short videos, as an intro and outro, might be related to the movie itself, might not.

Right at this moment, I can't offer a more exact date, for all the timezones it is hard to plan. Was talk about 21:00 PST on the 8th which is 00:00 EST and 16:00 AET on the 9th. However this is too early for Europeans on Sunday. Maybe we could offer two streams with some gap between.
Also no titles yet.

So ideas, suggestions are welcomed.

Hello, people from Endchan. I don't care about this website at all. But i care about dogola retards. They are the scum of brazilian imageboards. A heavy police investigation operation is being set up and I just want to warn you so you don't have to worry afterwards. We have already archived the threads where they made threats to explode the Veja magazine and tried to tie the boy Pascarelli to the crimes they are committing. Regardless of your political position (which I don't care what it is) please delete these boards. Or I will have to forward the link to your website directly to the North American Secret Service. Dogolachan is not targeted by the police because of political opinions, but because they literally influenced two school shootings in Brazil. They also carried out a hacker attack in Cleveland that had a considerable impact in the USA.

Endchan Outages

Hello frens,

I know the spotty up-time over February was a bit shit, so I've come to share some details. We've had to change the way the .net site operates and service seems to be solid now. The infrastructure endchan uses didn't change, but some of the underlying hardware did.

From the client perspective, you would have received a TCP reset packet which manifested in your browser as a "connection refused". On the server side, this was caused by intermittent failures with iptables. Semi-randomly traffic wouldn't get redirected and the system responded with a refusal as result. This behavior (or lack of) could be temporarily resolved be restarting the networking stack entirely.

We've reworked the pipeline to remove the dependency on iptables all-together. It's not a true resolution, we believe the root of the issue may be within the implementation of the network stack provided by the virtualization platform.

Sorry about the interruptions, things should be stable now but if you're experiencing issues please let us know.

R: 37 / I: 8 / P: 3


We want to ask your input on a matter and with it keep you involved navigating the site since it's a community effort.
As probably you know it, another shooting happened, this time in Halle, Germany, and maybe in the future others will happen. Our question is: should we (as a community, the staff, BOs, volunteers and users) let users repost acquired footage of the acts, or share links to it?
To make it more clear: we didn't, don't and won't assist for committing crimes and helping the attackers, their - or presumably their - posts still won't be tolerated. We are talking about discussing the events and the free flow of information.
If it's possible post your reasoning what should be done.

Thank you!

A plan for cleaning up board bloat

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.


So, what do you guys think? picture unrelated

Flood detected

Hello, dear admin. Do you understand all the negative consequences of this flood detected shit?

I wondered about it for years, why anyone installs the Vichan engine which is a completely unusable piece of shit primarily for this flood detected reason.

Clarifying rule 2.

After talking to one of your admins, OdiliTime. They said I should make an operate post concerning rule 2 of the website.

Currently it says:
"2. suggestive audio-visual content of underage children. Loli ok."

Every time I read this I am confused as to what it means, as I know that in most parts of the WWW "loli" typically includes sexually explicit depictions of children; including drawings of a pornographic nature. And not just "cute" drawings of children (of which aren't suggestive in nature)

I was told that "illegal loli"; that which is depictions of children are engaging in sexual acts or presented in a sexual manner are removed.

The wording is poor, and might draw pedos to you platform if they, like me, don't understand the limited definition of "loli" that is used.

I recommend a stricter definition.
The rule should, in my opinion, read something like this... so as to clearly be in accordance of federal law (linked below if you have questions)

"2. suggestive audio-visual content of underage children. SFW loli is ok."

Links to the DOJ, for your reference.

R: 1 / I: 0 / P: 9


Delete it. Not even shitposting.

I can't imagine any other imageboards that are as good as this one. It takes the user-created boards idea and merges it with a clean responsive administrative side and a unique userbase.

Now that 8chan fell, the (literal, i'll get to this later) retards from /pol/ have come here to shit up all of the major boards. If you look to the left of this post, you will see the pinned /pol/ containment thread from over two fucking years ago. The word Nigger has unironically been used on multiple major boards. Why?
Their existence jeopardizes the existence of all of the other boards. /b/, /tech/, /librejp/, /yuri/, /ausneets/, and others. It is not a question of if a terrorist post will happen, but when, and whether it is genuine or by some troll, it is going to have a negative effect, for this website, and for its users.
Balrog/Odilitime, when shit hits the fan, Gov is coming for you guys as the site owners. You can bet they're going to try hard to intimidate you to hand over the website data, if they don't just get a warrant/subpoena for it. You saw what happened to 8chan, and its reputation due to these events:
>"A site for right-wing domestic terrorists to congregate and plot their shootings, cheer each other on, and upload their blood-thirsty manifestos about The Great Replacement, a “venomous refuge” of “extremist hate.”" -MSM
And it is likely the same will be said about endchan if this doesn't stop.
/pol/ doesn't care about this website, it is another bunker for them to use. They believe that they are changing the world, uncovering corruption, and fighting the evils of the government when they can barely unite into a sizable force.
Tell me, is trolling CNN and stealing flags an effective method of influence? Barely anyone takes them seriously. Nothing more than armchair political scientists and blindly hateful people.

Getting back in the game

If you've been paying attention to odili's twitter then you've noticed that we plan to do a "migration." We've sat on our broken database for too damn long and it's preventing the site from crawling out of the hole it's been stuck in since twenty-fucking-seventeen, so we're going to be starting from a clean database and importing stuff on a best-effort basis instead of praying that a hacked-together document extraction script will make everything all better.

You will keep your boards, accounts and banners. These should be the easiest things to dump by hand anyway.

The current plan is that around next week (June 15th) we'll be setting up a "new" instance of lynxchan and keeping the site you're using right now active. This is going to be a recent stable version of lynxchan, so it'll be faster and more stable than what you're using now even before taking into account the DB issues. Stay tuned for further details, but given the amount of archival-grade stuff floating around here I want to avoid the "surprise! that thread you bookmarked is gone" problem if at all possible. There will be advance warning.

We need to create all threads from our old home and this restriction is too hard.

2018 christmas special thread

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

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.

2nd Birthday

Today Endchan is 2 years old.

Sorry feeling a bit down atm but I wanted to say something to commemorate this event. This isn't quite what I'd normally write for an event like this but it'll do. I had actually considered using this landmark to officially quit but I just can't. I love this community too much to put them in someone else's hands. I've put too much work in and fought too many battles to call it quits now. But it's been really hard being the only active admin, doing all the sysadmin and coding. This really is a labor of love.

- We've had success with am, ggrevolt, tech, pol, librejp, news and sp
- We've had our domains taken away and we've gotten our main back
- Several attacks and we're still standing
- We've implemented a lot of features

- We've made mistakes and hopefully we've proved that we've learned from them.
- Running a site like this is a never ending job that can feel thankless especially when dealing with haters
- Our HTML/CSS could use improvement. It says something that each of our major boards override the default CSS.

- We're planning to upgrade to LynxChan 1.9 in January

Special thanks to the few active globals we have.

Here's to 2 more years!

connections closed and ranged requests

There's an old unresolved problem with the onion frontend (at least): when downloading large files the server closes the connection after 10MB or so have been transferred, leaving the file truncated.

For certain kinds of files it's possible to workaround this bug by resuming the download at the position it was interrupted. The connection will get closed again after another 10MB or so. Repeat until the file is complete.

However, for fuck knows what reason, StephenLynx decided to use a whitelist for mime types allowed to be requested in ranges, so that workaround doesn't always work. He came to his senses at some point and dropped that nonsense, but Endchan still uses the whitelist.

So 2 issues:
1. The server closes connections after a few MB.
2. Remove the whitelist in src/be/engine/gridFsHandler.js.

Vox Populi, Vox Dei

The issue of the Russian ban of Endchan was discussed on the affected boards: /rus/, /librejp/ and /kc/.

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
- improve our community and site
- learn something

How you apply:

We all need to get to know one another. Some sort of chat is probably best. I'm thinking our IRC room is the most accessible and least bothersome. So for now it's the #endchan room on Rizon (, links on the top bar).

We understand we're probably going to make mistakes but like stated we're going to need to take risks to take us to the next level to ensure Endchan is going to be an institution. We plan to watch new recruits like a hawk and take action as quickly as we can. I think the worst that can happen is that we lose all the content, so I'm going to be working on a new backup system.

Please reply with your comments, questions, feedback and I hope to see some new nicks in the IRC room.

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.

Arguments For The Deletion of /pol/ and /news/

"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.

uptime drama continues

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.

R: 12 / I: 4 / P: 13

Things have been shit on the temporary servers we had to move to due to the lack of donations.
Sybil LTD ( ) 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.

Dear Odilitime,

Some jerk just set up a bot on /meme/ and the bot keeps uploading disgusting pictures. This effects the whole image section on the front page. We would like endchan to block these kind of malicious bots, could you please enforce the CAPTCHA for all posts? This would stop this bot in its tracks.

Thank you.

R: 14 / I: 2 / P: 13

Please Help!

Odilitime, I have been having problems with this site since the last 12 hours.

First off, when I tried accessing this site in the morning I got the "502 Bad Gateway nginx" error.

Later on, I was able to access this site. Now my replies are not loading correctly and it seems I can no longer load images or media files either.

This leaves me in a massive rut! When I reply I get the "connection failed" popup, but eventually the reply will show up, if I am lucky. If I try to send another reply it freezes but will post double or triple replies, depending on the number of attempts.


Proof, see image here:

/tech/ thread restoration/archive?

There's a thread that had some useful information for something I'm working on but it has apparently vanished. Strangely, the thread is not in the logs as having been deleted, so did it just fall off due to being really old? It is my fault for not archiving, but I only just came across it about a week ago. Going through the logs it looks like /tech/ cleaned a bunch of shit on June 26, but this particular thread isn't listed anywhere as having been purged.

The globalists are shutting down Tor access to endchan on PURPOSE! The globalists are scum!

R: 29 / I: 4 / P: 14

I had a development server breached that I had an old development copy of the Endchan database (without media).

All users are advised to change their passwords ASAP.

Development server was breached used an redis/ssh exploit. Redis was installed and usually ran as a user but recently doing some development work, I accidentally started it up as root to look something up and left it running. Redis then can write to your ssh keys and insert unwanted keys and allow root access. All files in /root and /home were removed and a note was left:

>Hi, please view here: for information on how to obtain your files!

Luckily I have bandwidth logs on that box and I can see there was nothing transferred out of the box. So my guess is they just deleted the files. The nature in which they left the machine leads me to believe this was an automated attack (plenty of other meaningful data directories were left alone).

The copy of Endchan's data is left untouched on this development server. However the dump that was used to transfer the copy was still likely in the /root directory that was deleted. I will get the date of the data copy as soon as I can do some data recovery on that machine, I estimated the copy to be an early 2016 Q2 dump. This server is now offline.

At Endchan, we want to be as transparent as we possibly can and even though we do not believe anything was leaked, we cannot rule out nothing happen with 100%. And even if we could be certain that nothing was at risk, we still want to report anything of this nature to our users.

I fucked up, I'm sorry for any troubles this may and has caused any of you.

Please let us know any questions you may have.

R: 144 / I: 40 / P: 14


I messed up during the migration. While waiting for the final database copy, I thought I'd upgrade/patch some servers, unfortunately I upgraded the box I was copying from. And I rebooted it without thinking about it. Now I manage around 20 servers that run hundreds of containers, so keeping track of everything isn't as easy as if I just had a couple. Also in my day job I get paid to professional move websites all the time. I make good money doing it, so I'm not a complete newb but I have no accounting for how I made such egregious error. I had a plan and just made a mistake.

Last year when we got the dedicated server, we built state of the art encryption into it. To the normal internet it looks like a website (unlike anything like Endchan) but with a special certificate our frontend server have, it runs the Endchan site. We split the drive into 3 sections, the camouflage (fake site / web server and relay), the app (lynxchan, megud, other site utilities), and the database. Then we encrypted the app and data drives. I held the keys to app, and Balrog the keys to data. We did have the foresight to give a back up of these password to other people just incase one of us got hit by a bus. Well Balrog and his backup StephenLynx both failed to find the correct password from a year ago.

So the two events combined means we can't access the latest copy of the Endchan data. So where does that leave us, well we had a full copy from 4/19 that we were syncing with the live data during the migration time. When it stop copying, it left the database in an inconsistent state. The mongo repair tool has done a great job recovering what you see;

we have most of posts but are missing a lot of database files (a great example of why you never store images in a database; we should only be missing the new files from last week on).

I fucked up, Balrog fucked up, and StephenLynx doesn't even remember us giving him the password. If just one of 4 events had gone another direction, we would not have been here.

I proposed throwing in the towel. My recent battles with pedospammers has not been fun but Balrog put it well: "we're still one of the only imageboards worth a damn and people need us goddamn it"

I considering just running the board with no content, even thought about switch imageboard software. Balrog said we should take it to a vote and let you guys decide. But to be honest we recovered more than I was expecting and the lynxchan repair process (rebuilding HTML files) is still running (going to take a long time on these older servers).

To be clear why we migrated, our donations levels were so low, we could no longer afford that server. Our previous server was awesome, a full year of uptime (Another reason why we never needed these passwords because the machine never went down).

In retrospect our set up was probably more complex than needed but it was just an attempt to help secure you're guys data the best we could. Our new drives are no longer encrypted.

Another chapter in Endchan long lists of fuck ups but we're here and can't say we did try to do our best. (Why is there two new topic buttons...)

EDIT: fix more grammar errors. Damn I was tired last night.

I do like the site. But you could be doing better updating/bug fixing. This site has really good potential seriously. Does the hosting cost this much cause of the massive file size? You could go down to 50 to 100 mbs and it'd still be huge. Very little communication about this so far, just tell us about whats up tbh.

Migrating From Mewch to Enchan

Hello I don't know if this is the correct place to post.

I am migrating from after they disabled board creation.

I require a few changes to be able to migrate successfully:

1. I need to be able to disable file upload and canvas on my board. I want my board text-only.
2. I have hundreds of flags to upload and multiple boards to migrate. I would like the flag uploader dialog to be modified so I can drag an entire folder of flags onto it and it uploads all the flags, with each flag name defaulting to the filename of the flag minus the extension.
3. I need board pages.

That is all. If you can add these things I will be able to successfully migrate to my new home,

Not absolutely necessary but I'd also like a way to restrict my board to tor-posting only for anonymity purposes. If everyone using my board is forced to use tor it becomes harder to tell us all apart than if some people are on VPN, some on proxies, some on bare IPs, etc.

If this is the wrong place to post then tell me where to post about this.
