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.

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.

I'm not the BO. Maybe you should contact him in case the spammer comes back.

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
just go back to cuckchan for that ebin PPH

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?

Can the current /hikki/ BO be ousted like the previous /a/ and /tech/ boad owners were? He's going full retard and 90% of the board's discussion is meta due to his shitty rules.

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

How many times do we need to say this? Thread creation gets locked when the board reaches a certain TPH threshold to prevent spam. Lurk more you fucking retard
Replies: >>3031
It's been locked for 12 hours already you dumb faggot.
>heh, don't you know about our braindead solution to spam!
No, because only retards would use something like this.
Replies: >>3033
It appears that a threshold of 7 is way too low. We've been getting complaints about locked thread creation for quite a while now as it's getting activated even during normal times. I'm increasing it to a more lax number, but still low enough to protect older threads in the case of catalog spam.

Can mods see if the OP here is using Tor? Because if that's the case then he's a schizophrenic mini-modding autist that makes threads like this in basically every meta board on the webring. He should not be encouraged and preferably have all his posts removed when recognized.
He is pretty recognizable from posting pics he finds in /gg/ at 8moe, btw. Like he's doing right now.

Please make an even worse captcha, thanks.

>imprecise and shit
Your IQ is shit. I have never failed a captcha again after seeing the first 10 or 20.

Why would a bot want to send reports? Nobody's going to see it except one or two moderators. If you want to overwhelm the server (DDOS) then it doesn't matter what you spam on.

The real reason is probably because this is once again something that developers just don't bother to think about and make better. You just need to be able to ban someone who sends bogus reports, mass-manage reports (e.g. dismiss all reports by an IP), and a way to toggle captcha on the report form in case someone starts harrassing admins with spam reports.

I don't think you know what IQ is you dumb faggot. There's nothing "IQ" taxing in having to match an image. But if your image-matching captcha is utter shit and designed by an equally retarded faggot, no amount of IQ will make it work better. Now promptly kill yourself.
