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.

Is it the little animated live post dot that's causing you issues or have you blocked that as well?
The onion https can't be reached unless you manually delete the s. I have https everywhere and it's extremely annoying I have to do this every time.

Look at the address bar when you're on the homepage. It ends with /index.html. That exact url needs to be your bookmark. Trying to go to the url in the Welcome message is the cause, It forces https when redirecting to the url with /index.html appended. This has been known for a year or two and there hasn't been an attempt to fix the redirect or even simply change the Welcome message.

this is still a (small) problem.

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.

Speaking of BO applications, Tengu has called it quits with /pol/ >>>/japan/10814
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?

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.

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?

[Hide] (5.1MB, 853x480, 01:42)
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 sturgeonf[email protected] in case of a happening. I'll come right here.

Yeah, I saw that there were two different Codexx posters, moron, which is why I said to email him, as both used the same address which was real would very quickly become apparent as soon as the poster I was talking to, did so.

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.

Reported all this shit hours ago and it's still up.
The site will eat your post if you refresh the page. Please make this not happen. Its so annoying you accidentally go back a page or refresh and your whole post is gone.
add ruffle to the site so that we can play swf files.

Would it be hard to increase the thread limit? I've seen imageboards with, like, 200 pages or something

A single remaining pedonigger is singlehandedly killing blackedchan with naught but a 5 dollar VPN and some thumbnails he grabbed from Kohlchan. Expect a migration of turds directly from Mark's Jewcy anus within the next week, if not day.

Behold the new front page mascot and cute tank dork of the Zzzigger alliance that always should have been.
Is especially popular among the /b/ and /k/ crowd. So it's settled then.
....No I was serious, it's not fair that halfchan has Sachiko and 8Moe has the Jewcy Mark Mann.

Nah I just use private tabs in Librewolf because cookies spook me, I'm not intentionally doing that. It really is that easy. Non the less you have my word that half the posts on this thread are from other anons genuinely engaged in the conversation.
