I brought this issue up in the /v/ gamergate thread and was told to repost it here.  For reference, I'm >>>/v/26109.

To summarize, I wanted to know why minor shitposting was deleted in the gamergate thread even though other threads (like the first FPS general) had much more and much worse periods of shitposting/calling OP a faggot at the start.

The reply I got from Seagull (presumably; no capcode) was >>>/v/26199, which claimed that deleting bitching about the threads was not preferential treatment because these threads are allowed under the rules - even if the rules literally refer to them as "special" threads, and no other threads get scrubbed like that.  Yes, I'm aware that the rules put ""special"" in quotations, which somewhat diminishes the strength of the word, but the fact remains that they are exceptions to rules like "effortless threads will be met with ridicule."

Seagull said to take the issue up with the BO, so here we are.  I'm sure that the reply will be "stay mad faggot these threads are BASED and always allowed!" but I'm just going through the proper channels.

And before anyone tells me that this shouldn't come as a surprise, it's not the presence of gamergate threads that I'm specifically taking issue with (although I do maintain they are worthless and attract all kinds of non-vidya attention whores).  My point is that if

Please fix the word filter. Every time I try posting something longer than three sentences I see the magic words "word filter auto ban" and I have to weigh trying to read seagull's mind to find out which innocuous word was used to annoy him this week against closing the tab and doing something productive with my day.

Seagull is innocent, It was a rather generous hash filter I had set to curb some spam yesterday, though I'm not sure why it was set to "autoban" rather than just "block post" since I'm fairly certain that's the setting I had on. I lifted the ban already.
For future reference, it would help if you described what exactly you tried to post and then also appealed to the ban through the appeal form when this sort of shit happens, so we can narrow it down and lift the ban quicker.

These need to fuck off from the wordfilter list:
These are actual English words, except for LOL which at least has a conventional usage that isn't cancer.

I've said it a dozen times, and I'll say it once more: there are NO word filters on /v/ outside of spam links and hashes of illegal shit like CP. When filters are added it's a short term measure to curb persistent spam and are removed as soon as it's over. With that said, "based", "literally", and "lol" were never filtered so I'm going to join the other anon in asking: the fuck are you on about?

Do note that like in this scenario >>4558, if it looks like you can't post no matter what you type, it might be a problem with the file you're trying to upload.

Do you consider zzz your home? Why do you stay here and not another place on the webring?
How many other boards on the webring do you regularly visit?
If you use tor, why come here at all instead of a tor only imageboard?
Do you think there are "better" chans for specific boards?
In terms of users/admin, what would you say is the differences between zzz, and say anoncafe?

They may contain interesting or useful information. And someone may revive them.
>that prevent people from making new threads
What?? Nothing prevents you from making new threads, and thus sliding old ones. So, a good solution would be to allow much more threads, so that each thread has enough time before being sled for people to archive it or revive it if it is interesting/useful enough.
Though another good solution would be to have automatic archives, like there are several ones for cuckchan.

>They may contain interesting or useful information
Nobody's going to re-read shitty old threads like that as if they're some treasure trove of valuable information, and it would be much more interesting to read and participate in a new thread than an old one where the discussion has already run it's course.

You can't make a new thread because it'll be deemed a duplicate. Posting in a 2 month old thread will get significantly less discussion than a new thread, it doesn't benefit anyone.

The long awaited server migration is finally ready, I will outline the details here.

What's happening?
I am moving zzzchan to a new application server. This new server is better, cheaper, and has a 100% working jschan installation ready to go.

What has to be done?
I will have to take the site down for a bit in order to rsync files and a mongo backup into the new server. These will slot right in once the transfer is done. From there all I need to do is edit the site's DNS. I don't expect this process to take more than hour if everything goes well. The .onion service will be dormant through the whole process and switched over after the clearnet site is confirmed working on the new server. 

When is this happening?
Current date is this tuesday evening but I've been sick since saturday. Watch the global announcements for any delays.

What if something goes wrong?
The current, soon to be old appserver will be at the ready to switch back to. Again global announcements will be used to announce if I have to switch back. I only see potential issues with updating DNS but thats only because its the only untested part of the process

What's changing with the switch?

Captcha got worse after the update.
Before it was reasonably effortlessly solvable on the first try unless you got a very offset row or a very distorted chess.
Now for each chess figure you might as well guess if it's filled or not, especially for queens and bishops.

Hey admin, I'm thinking of migrating to jschan and want to know what your thoughts on it are. (I can't test it out on my tiny server because of a dependency not supporting the hardware)
Especially things like administration and moderation tool. What is good, and what is missing?

Add an I2P address pls.

I2P doesn't have some of the vulnerabilities of Tor (see Dread DDoS) and has better, more reliable performance for hidden services. Oh and it supports torrenting. In fact it's integrated to default I2P client, so unlike on Tor, fun is allowed. Finally, unlike Tor, it does not rely on centralized directory authorities. The network is truly decentralized. It makes for a different set of pros and cons. If nothing else, it's good for hedging your bets with Tor, but generally, I2P is just better for hidden service use. That's what it was designed for. Meanwhile Tor is first and foremost a proxy system to clearnet.
For website hosting, you can use i2pd which is a more performant C++ implementation without the bells and whistles.

Some chans that already have I2P support:

Quick note for pic related: You should use the HTTP proxy instead of the SOCKS proxy since the HTTP proxy masks your browser user agent to be MYOB/6.66 (AN/ON) while the SOCKS proxy doesn't mask your browser user agent.

Here is a short tutorial on how to create an i2pd HTTP tunnel: https://i2pd.readthedocs.io/en/latest/tutorials/http/

You don't need to open the httpd port for I2P traffic on your firewall. There isn't any nginx example for this, but I have a simple static site example for OpenBSD httpd:
language: json
server "zmjdpytveh2mp6krdnlniupxnv2cgacmffhznbxvgypl63tjchfa.b32.i2p" {
        listen on * port 8080
        root "/htdocs/examplesite"
        no log

server "example.i2p" {
        listen on * port 8080

Also both pics are years old and outdated, I just post it because of nep
install i2pd-qt. Is a lot easier to setup and it comes with qt interface for i2p configuration.

Turns out you can leave out the "example.i2p" block from your webserver config since those kinds of addresses are simply base64 aliases to the B32 address.

The OpenBSD config would look like this now:
language: json
server "zmjdpytveh2mp6krdnlniupxnv2cgacmffhznbxvgypl63tjchfa.b32.i2p" {
        listen on * port 8080

How difficult would it be to set up a streaming platform to run alongside this site? 8ch has one but a lot of people don't like that site for various reasons. They use OSP and it seems to work most of the time, and seems to be fairly easy to set up. Between BMN and the increasing number of streamers on /v/ there seems to be a good amount of people that would use it. Is the current server strong enough to handle the load?

the site i stream with has not updated to this new system, do you have any alternatives that I could use instead?
Replies: >>4072
The instance I'm currently using has disabled registrations, so you can search for an instance here instead (adjust filters):
Check the peertube version of each instance before registering, you can view it on the about page or similar. Any version >=4.2 is golden.
[Hide] (84.3KB, 640x480)
Mr. Fish, I have disposable income and I am willing to offer you payment in BTC if you were to rent another VPS and host OSP on it so us streamfags can break away from cakejew's clutches and be totally independent. Peertube instances are a crapshoot, their web player is garbage, and streaming to them is less than stable. Streaming to 8ch.moe is much more stable by comparison and simply just works, but since nobody here trusts the site (for valid reasons) I am wary at best of using it for anything.
According to OBS, it's minimum requirements are a dual-core CPU, 4GB of RAM, and a 3500mbps upstream bitrate. Having double those specs (quad-core CPU, 8GB RAM, 5TB monthly transfer, and speeds of 40gbps in/5gpbs out) runs about $60 monthly with my VPS provider and should be roughly the same across the board.
Again, I am willing to give you free money to host a streaming service. Please reply to this if you are interested and where I could contact you for further discussion.
