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.

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.

My leaving was not a false flag, I gave up the board willingly due to personal reasons.
I’ve moved quite a long distance (different time zone) and have a lot more to do now, so I cannot effectively moderate or own a board. g_c is doing a great job

You seem to be confused. I wasn't saying your leaving was a false flag. This OP is a false flag from May of last year, shit talking /pol/ with typical D&C.

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.

Site supplied in OP gives no results. Tried on several browsers. Upload finishes and site acts as if nothing was uploaded in the first place. I tried looking around for some downloadable tools for checking MIME but I couldn't find anything (weirdly enough there were sceenshots of some tools around but couldn't land on any site with programs themselves).
I've uploaded the smallest (9 MB) of the .zips here so maybe you can use that for troubleshooting.

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

if your not gonna fix this shit you might as well shut endchan down this place has become barely usable at this point. if your going to fix the site there needs to be some sort of timetable even a rough one. i get that running the site isnt easy, but theres no fucking point if it dosent work.

Really just close the site if you can't keep it working. Stringing people along forever is retarded. There's lots of working Chan's for your users to redistribute to if your not gonna fix this shit.Quit wasting everyone's time and get your shit together or fold it up and quit.

yea, things were getting really bad. We've complained enough to the free host, that they've upgraded our server (however that came with 32 hours unexpected unscheduled downtime). They said if we were a paying customer we would have like 6 month credit due to all the problems we've had with them. So they've really been awesome about the whole thing.

I think the 500 are when the disks were too busy to process everything and nodes communication to nginx would time out.

Hopefully we have our shit together now.

That's the dns, not the VPN, unless the VPN has blocked us, but this site performs no such blocking. Try using the VPN with dnscrypt.

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.

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.

files repetition in /pone/ #Kmu0lY 07/02/2018 (Mon) 21:42:49 [Preview] No. 9443 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Hi owners,
I have a certain petition to ask. In /pone/, we are having trouble to upload the same files but in different threads. Once one image is posted, the same one cannot be uploaded anywhere else and while there are a lot of images to post, it´s certainly annoying for some situations. The R9K message appears and the reply absolutely blocks the reply.

Could you adjust the archives and instead of blocking them globally in the board, just limit them for one thread so we can repeat them and not feel restricted all the time, especially after the image file fiasco?

Thank you if anyone can reply to this.

odilitime Board volunteer 07/05/2018 (Thu) 23:31:06 [Preview] No.9447 del
R9K is either off or no. It's a limitation of the board software. I'll forward your request to StephenLynx

>It's a limitation of the board software. I'll forward your request to StephenLynx
yeah,I knew it was a setting from the board itself. The thing is that it limited globally the same image and ut was pretty annoying and random at times. We had to edit them a bit in order to post them again.
I have tested it with this image for 3 different threads in the board and the R9K notification doesn't seem to appear nor interrupt the same archive or picture. Feel free to delete those test posts I have made, I will send a report anyway.

Thanks for the change.

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.
