I've migrated and fixed a bunch of shit along the way, but if anything is broken please use this thread to report it. I've locked the previous thread to focus new issues here.

Two known issues:
- Favicon didn't fly so good
- Need to set up a new tor socks5 proxy for webring

Both of these will be fixed shortly.

Not really a bug, but global rule 5 on the global rules page is incomplete.
>triple apostrophes was conflicting with italics' double apostrophes
Why did it work before then?
Whenever I hide a thread in the catalog, unless I immediately refresh the page after hiding it, it won't persist and will reappear if I refresh the catalog some time later. Ungoogled Chromium on ganoo+linoox.
Is any one else getting bad request errors for a post for 'word filtering'? No matter what I try to post I can't get past this error, and I am definitely positive that I am not using any of the words on a word-block list.

I think it's an error related to the ten thousand range bans in effect at the moment, because specific IP bans are too difficult for the modes

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?

I wish to take over moderation of /v/ and usher in the construction of the zzziggurat.
I need some form of contact with potential BOs, there's a bit of back and forth after the application.

Actually the /news/ guy did email me but then stopped responding before I could set him up on the board so that was that.

If >>3915 still wants /his/, he can have it he just needs to email me.

Requesting a /liberty/ board. /fascist/ has their own board but /liberty/ is still being left out in the cold.

>What will the focus of your board be?
Austro-libertarian discussion on politics and economics.
>What will the rules be?
Global rules apply. Keep discussion on-topic, purely economics and politics. Posts should be high-quality, shit is deleted. No namefagging.
>How would you handle the following hypothetical scenarios: 
>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? 
Delete it, move on.
>A spammer posts CP. What do you do?
Delete, permaban, and report to FBI.
>A spammer has slid your catalog and all unpinned threads are gone. What do you do?
Delete posts, permaban spammer. Attempt to recreate lost threads. Ask site admin for assistance in preventing this from happening again and for backups of lost threads.
>What time range(s) would you normally be able to keep an eye on the board?
Mornings and evenings on weekdays, all-day weekends. I need to sleep at night.

Who is the current owner of /k/? Is it only be kept as a bunker for now? cafe/k/ has become unusable from all the schizoposting and I'd like to use the one here, but from what I can tell it seems to only be in use as a bunker.

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?

This live posts feature is uber shit. If the connection is interrupted for any reason, it just goes into a "Error connecting" state and stays there. The old behavior was just to retry updating until it finally succeeded. I don't want to check all 30 open tabs every five minutes to check whether there are really no new posts or just this thing shat itself again and I have to press F5 to get updates.

It should be fixed in 0.11.0
Now I only have to wait 5 years until sturgeon updates his site again...
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.

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.

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.

TOR can no longer be banned outright, but exit nodes will not get special treatment. Use the .onion.

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

I know that rapeman is new, but is he really so new that he doesn't recognize obvious astroturfing and edenposting for what it is?  (I'd call it demoralization but that might imply it ever accomplishes anything.)

The "X nobody asked for" phrase gets posted literally every single time anyone suggests or tries to host a game night.
Game has been popular and proven to work?  Nobody asked for it; do something new.
Trying a new game?  Nobody asked for it; don't bother.
Game night was popular?  Nobody asked for it; that can't be true.

I've seen this happen for literal years on zzz/v/, and the consistency plus the autistic obsession with the exact same phrase every single time is strong evidence that it's eden.  These posts should always be deleted from any game night or game night-adjacent thread they're found in.

Yet when I reported it a few days ago, rapeman dismissed the reports with no explanation.  Why?

Pics 1 and 2 are the posts in question.  Pic 3 is another example I found in the previous game night organization thread.
If they were right then they wouldn’t be banned in the first place.

jschan (the imageboard software this site uses) is currently looking for help with creating language packs for the localisation feature: https://gitgud.io/fatchan/jschan/-/issues/396

If you can translate from English to another language and are willing to contribute, please post on that issue thread on gitgud or get in contact via some method in the jschan README. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Translating to languages other than the white man's is a big mistake and will earn you the worst type of users.
