You're browsing the imageboards in the morning and find a discussion, so you take a sip of your federally approved Gaming Water while pinching your mustache and write a quick reply. You hit the reply button, feeling content about partaking in some kind of social interaction which the current design of society so deprives you of, and BAM. Fucking DENIED, you're send into a concentration camp and put into shackles, and told to complete a fucking captcha and inject the ID cookie back into your wrist before you're allowed to continue living normally again.

Does the bypass captcha serve any practical purpose? We seem to have been fine without it all this time. Smug has never used it to my knowledge and they haven't had any problems even though supposedly there's a lot of people who hate them and thus would target the website, and it's boards are among the top boards so you'd imagine it would be a target for bots. Even if it curbs the occasional bot advertisement (which it never did in 8chan), is it really worth making everyone's lives more annoying just for that?

Retard proof mini-game captchas are the superior method. We need tom to create more, especially a clock based one, then have it randomly choose which captcha you get every time so it's always a fresh experience.

As fun as minigames are, JS-only captchas are mega garbage.

I'm basically just calling the chess captcha a mini-game. And I don't think the chess captcha requires JS.
Replies: >>2368
Oh, I was thinking of actual minigames you'd have to complete. And yeah, the chess captcha needs no js.

tor users should have separate IDs, based on bypass. there is also a tor-specific flag. You need to send the x-country-code 'TOR' header and it will work as intended
Replies: >>2321
Why discriminate against tor users?
What value is there in knowing if someone is using tor?
Replies: >>2314 >>2321
There isn't value in knowing someone is using tor. There is value in tor users being indistinguishable from each other. The entire point of the tor browser bundle is that one client is indistinguishable from the next. There is value in giving tor users a unique captcha based ID, but there is also value in them sharing an ID and being properly anonymous.

I would prefer the latter, but I understand the former from a moderation perspective. And it obviously makes conversations a little less confusing. It sort of boils down to the same discussion about ID's vs no ID's. I don't think there is a right answer for everyone.
Replies: >>2321
Yes, thats the header I'm trying to pass through. Looking to get it working tonight.

I belive the captcha token would be the only identifier and there would be nothing preventing tor users from getting a new one any time. This would only let us hand out bans/purge by token without accidentally all tor users without actually compromising security. They'd have to trace you thru the tor network, raid you and seize your box, and find a token you can purge at any time on it to link you to posts made here. Not a likely scenario.

This is more about making the only real attack vector, manual spam, that much harder.

I'm creating this thread since the same once from >>>/v/ got deleted 2 months ago on the same day and I wanted to suggest an edit to /v/ rules.

Ban and delete GooberGate threads from zzz/v/. They are useless circlejerk threads and mark/v/ already has those threads anyways, so it wouldn't hurt. It might improve the quality of /v/.

No it isn't active, its sub 100 users on a good day and sub 50 on a bad and half of them are faggots. You will not, and cannot, hit the critical mass of users required to foster spontaneous and self sufficient conversation as the board is just a handful of people talking to each other because at some point they will run out of things to say.

I can go on halfchan right now and make a thread about an obscure game and it will get 100 posts before it dies. Here it would get one post as it sinks to the bottom of the catalog in about 2 months time give or take. The only threads that get attention are drama ones and those that mention 8cake, yet these same users who are so quick to complain or bitch are no where to be found posting in the rest of the board.

As you all know, we've been on cloudflare's "I'm under attack mode" for the last several days due to a spammer. This has gotten annoying for everyone and I am ready to pull the trigger on implementing recaptcha until a better solution can be implemented, which Tom is currently working on. This is not something I enjoy doing. Using any google service is an absolute last resort and I would be switching to whatever Tom cooks up asap. That said:

If enough of you are fine with how things are now and don't mind skipping recaptcha I won't add it

So I want to hear from you. Do I add recaptcha and we deal with it for a few days or do we just wait for something better?

Please evict the biznnel pedoniggers that have been recently shitting up this site. After all there are global rules against their pedoshit. I'm not sure why they aren't being enforced.

They'll never fuck off from /b/. They infest every /b/ they touch like a fucking cancer except cuckchan, but we all know why they avoid cuckchan entirely, the same reason ziggers avoid cuckchan.

I think it's time to get rid of those D&C (((Discord))) goons once and for all. Recently, the (((herdniggers))) have been shitting up various sites even harder including /monster/, Nanochan, and zzz/b/. To make those subhumans fuck off forever, I propose for Sturgeon to recruit more global vols and change global rule #2 to be more vague so suspected (((herdspeak))) that is detected can be deleted alongside borderline images. An example of the global rule #2 change proposal is
>Don't post pedo shit (obviously, retard)
Just be careful on who is being recruited as a gvol. A good start would be to send recruitment email offers to whoever owns a board before /a/ was created on zzzchan, asking a few questions like what timezone and active times. Sturg can choose whoever to email at his own discretion.
>inb4 fears of getting called a big rulecuck and bleeding anons
(((They))) already whine about zzzchan rulecucks not allowing any nude 3DPD children anyways. Losing (((herdniggers))) won't be a big deal anyways. Nothing of value will be lost. If the mods keep allowing (((herdniggers))) to stir up shit, then this site will meet a horrible end.

In short, global mods have to stop being pussies and evict the (((

Any chance you could enable .swf file uploads so we can have good ol' flash threads? Cakechan has that.
Replies: >>2091
That's not up to Sturgeon. Tom needs to give us .swf support
Replies: >>2092
There is a config option in JSchan to allow custom file MIME types somewhere. I'm sure sturg could enable .swf support himself.
