Use this thread to report any issues you find while using the site. We currently have 2 known issues: 


1. Real-time post updates are not working. I still need to work out how to get websockets to go through the proxy properly. you will see the error switch back to timed refresh after a few seconds, so auto update is still semi-working.
2. Geoip flags are all inheriting the proxy server's location. I've already solved this issue with post IDs so I have a rough idea of what I need to do to fix this, but it is not high priority.

I also fully expect shenanigans immediately after launch, so if anything happens I will be working to fix it as fast as I can. Your help here is appreciated.

zzzchan is running on older version of jschan, so I doubt it's a problem with it. More likely that it's server again.

Hello and welcome to zzzchan! I will be using this thread to explain how this site is set up and answer the initial wave of questions. Thread creation on /meta/ will be locked initially, I will explain how this will be handled going forward below.

Now, to answer some initial questions:

>Who the fuck are you? Who are the other mods?
I am sturgeon, I was a mod back on fat/v/ and later z/v/. fat/v/ was my first role as a moderator in any capacity. I'm happy to say that Pasta and seagull have also stuck around and will be managing /v/. r9k's BO will also be back.

>Nice namefagging
I intend to only use my name & role tag when posting something relevant to my role or the site. 

>Why have you set this up?
Because zchan was doing fairly well before the admin pulled the plug without warning. I'd been considering making my own IB since fat died but once zchan went down I decided I had to make the effort. 

>Will you abandon this after x amount of time?
I've gone through the effort of setting all this up after losing 2 previous boards. I'm doing this because I want it to, and I plan to keep this place running as long as I can.

This thread is for handling boards from other sites that wish to migrate here/have been orphaned if public thread creation is locked on /meta/. If public thread creation is open you are free to make a dedicated thread here, otherwise I will make one for you.

The rules for migration are : 
- All Migrating/orphaned boards will be considered outside of the application cycle and should contact me at the same email address listed below.
- I will require proof that you are/were the BO/mod on another imageboard, or that the moderation team for the board in question has fallen apart.
- You must agree to follow all global rules for this site.
- You must agree to actively moderate the new board.
- If accepted, you must notify anons on the old board if it still exists. I do not mind If zzzchan is used as a bunker until a migration can be coordinated/ anons are comfortable making the switch. The new board will be unlisted in this type of scenario and will not be announced util ready.

Feel free to ping me at [email protected] in case of a happening. I'll come right here.

One day you'll understand the point of decentralization.
Why cant user allowed to post image without uploading image. For instance, just fetch the image from the server itself should save a lot of effort rather than uploading an image file.

EDIT 9/17: APPLICATIONS ARE NOW OPEN FOREVER. FEEL FREE TO SUBMIT ONE AT ANY TIME.
I will leave the rest of the post intact, please ignore the special stipulations.

Hello and welcome to the fist round of BO applications for zzzchan. I will outline the application process below, along with some special stipulations for this first round.

To apply for a board, you must submit your answers to the following questions: 

1. What will the focus of your board be?
2. What will the rules be?
3. How would you handle the following hypothetical scenarios:
    A. A user who is only breaking the rules of your board has a substantial post history that is perfectly fine up until the single instance you are reviewing. What do you do?
    B. A spammer posts CP. What do you do?
    C. A spammer has slid your catalog and all unpinned threads are gone. What do you do?
4. What time range(s) would you normally be able to keep an eye on the board?
5. If your board becomes active enough, do you agree to look for one or more vol(s) to help you? Do you know anyone already?

How many times are you faggots going to cry wolf?
The average PPD of 4/pol/ alone is above 150000, the average PPD of the entire webring is not even 1% of that: if there was an invasion of any particular site, no matter how half-assed, it would drown native posts by orders of magnitude.
But you faggots with your faggy siege mentality have an insatiable need for invincible enemies and hopeless fights, so you just can't stop making up this shit and then falling for it.

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

If you weren't a newfag you'd know that the fatman icon is something that Sturgeon has tried repeatedly to replace.  He's said that icon literally isn't anywhere on the server and that the files all point to the starry Z icon, but the fatman takes priority for some reason that nobody can figure out.

Recently this trailer was posted to blacked.moe. After it was posted cakekike came out admitting that he is going to be in this documentary as well. Right now the trailer is sitting at 1.2 million views after 4 days of being released. Based on the trailer it almost exclusively is featuring content from 8chan/8kun and seems much more focused on imageboards than Qnigger bullshit itself. In all likelihood the documentary will namedrop the webring or sites within the webring. It is very possible that it could gain enough traction to trigger an influx of cancer. Time to clench your assholes while you still can and brace for impact. Also there's some hilarious embarrassing clips of Ron in here give it a watch, what a fucking autist this hapa is.

2/21 update 
Configs are evidently not perfect yet, I'm digging to see what exactly happened and will try to make the failover actually work as intended.

Apologies for the downtime everyone, I will outline what exactly happened (at least as much as I can) here along with my plans to prevent it from ever happening again.

1. The proxy host fucking died
This is why there was downtime at all, but n0t why that downtime was such an issue. As much as having an eastern European host that doesn't care benefits a site like, at the end of the day its still run by the cock.li guys ##it's not cockbox##. The following points will outline why I could not mitigate this and how I plan to in the future.

2. I only had one proxy
I kept putting off setting up a second proxy. There's no other explanation, I kept putting it off and eventually forgot. This paired with the not-so-reliable nature of the single proxies host was enough to fuck the site. I will be setting up a second, cheap proxy that will function more as a fall back with it's own subdomain. Balancing an array like previously is a huge pain, and often broke. I've reviewed a few different hosts that will probably not cuck out like the last ones did, and a $5 vps with them will be perfectly serviceable. 

And for the dumbest, most bullyable mistake:
3: I didn't backup my fucking proxy configs
All of the nginx config files used for the proxies have changed substantially each time I have had to make server changes, and I didn't back shit up when I set up the current one. This left me unable to rapidly set up a dirt cheap vps to work as a stop-gap in the meantime regardless of their TOS. ##We'd be off it before they could handle any reports anyway##

Stop ignoring this.

If you're gonna be against calling 8moe shit because you're against board wars or whatever, at least you could delete boards literally made to promote drama and infighting like zzz/tg/. 
Proof of zzz/tg/ BO being a sperg:
>>>/tg/55
Literally has the same writing style and arguments as https://smuglo.li/tg/res/17543.html#18981

We've literally given him all the time and space to say whatever he could want about smugloli and prove that the meidos were influencing /tg/, but he hasn't said anything but FUD like some sort of shill.

I don't care too much about zzz/tg/ taking up HDD space since it's dead, but it would be hilarious if the board was deleted because the BO was such a fag.  It'd be a cleaner end than the state of undeath his board has existed in since he made it.

The zzz/tg/ BO is also likely Eden, since (as someone mentioned in the smug thread you're linking to), PLW/geimu/ had an advertisement on the index for zzz/tg/ when the latter was first made.  It wouldn't make sense for a video game board to promote a traditional game board on a different webring site unless there was a connection behind the scenes.

and that's without mentioning the fact he has a bone to pick with the meidos much like the "anon" on the meta thread on smug/tg/ and the "anon" BO of zzz/tg/, very coinkydink.
