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.

Is there a way to unban TOR while keeping that spamming faggot away? Having to use clear IP to post sucks.

There's two things that annoy me: if i click a huge image, scroll down, and then click to close it, it doesn't scroll back to the top of the image where i started, and if i make a reply and hit index it scrolls me right to my post on the page.

Why do posts that exceed the filesize limit still get through but without the files?
Is that intentional or a bug?

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.

>wow, dumb faggot doesn't understand the point of not having 1 site that can be taken down for good

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?

The reason /a/ is DOA is because it's just /animu/ with trivially modified rules and people already have /animu/ for that. I don't even know what shit /japan/ is supposed to be but it's not an anime/manga board.

It unambiously is an anime/manga board (it's /jp/). Considering that you're not posting anime/manga threads on the inhouse /jp/, what do you expect to do on /jam/ that you're not doing right now, delete the few meta posts on your wasteland of a board?

Any attempt to organize will be met by fed and ddos and other bs the admins won't want to deal with. You'll have to settle for passive aggressive comments in unrelated threads and posting in onion sites people only check monthly. They won't let another Trump happen. The internet is being sanitized and you are unwelcome in the nwo. You want to have free speech? It's going to look like speakeasies from the prohibition.
So what you're saying is that zzzchan is already compromised? Cuckflare is forced here so I'm not surprised. How do you explain 8moe's ability to have a /pol/?

Instead of going full /a/-tier on your moderation in this meta board for meta threads, why not make a /pol/ board? Or are you still too scared to do it?

Replies: >>3274

If one board is a honeypot then the whole imageboard would be. So either Sturg admits this website is a honeypot or he mans up, stops avoiding the question as you can see with here >>3272
or he kills himself and passes the website on to someone who can actually administrate and won't force everyone on cuckflare.

The problem where you get the same captcha over and over seems to be caused by caching. Since the captcha image is loaded from a generic url (/captcha) it loads the result that was cached previously. You can fix it by using "/captcha?unique_number" instead of "/captcha" as the URL (where unique_number can be anything as long as it's different, for example current time).
