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.

Well, that is why I tried to move to Blacked dot moe in the first place, I should have probably been more drastic instead of giving people a choice in the first place
Sadly I went through all the trouble of finding a way to force a manual account creation for the other mods and they haven't shown up since

is anon.cafe down?
Replies: >>3545 >>3546
Both them and 16chan when I went to see what was going on. Anon.cafe reported 502 errors over the course of the day on the main link, side-link, and tor node. On their third link I got a "DNS Probe" error and it also wouldn't connect. Don't know if 16chan has fallbacks or not.

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.

AVIF has little to no use cases, and both stable Chromium and stable Firefox don't support JPEG XL yet.
>meme format
Clearly you don't know what you're talking about.
[Hide] (63KB, 352x570)
I've read the To do list of jschan, and it seems that AVIF support is already present. I tried to post one AVIF image, but I can't because of 504 errors.
Replies: >>3998
that list is old and not updated anymore, much more things were added
yes it does support whatever format you want, the admin just has to actually turn it server side on and your browser has to support it
This depends on support by dependencies like graphicsmagick and ffmpeg (and users browsers), not jschan itself.

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.

Any updates? Is a fix even planned? There was another victim: >>>/v/136046
I propose you either use 3 ' for bold (like smug) or follow JSchan defaults.
Can't post this file for some reason. 
I got it from a booru so it should be clean.
Thread watcher doesn't exists currently.

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?

So that's a no for the temp board?
I think /b/ is now subverted by the herdniggers and one of them managed to get a BO position, if you look on the catalog of the board, I'm sure you'll see why.
/his/ - Historical Discussion and Shitposting
>1. What will the focus of your board be?
Like the title says, historical discussions and shitposting, from ancient times on. 
>2. What will the rules be?
Aside from global rules, no drama posting (i.e., "hi John", "hi Eden" posting),  no schizo posting, and no spamming.
>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?
    If the rule break is minor, I'll let him off with a warning. If the issue is major, he gets banned. 
    >B. A spammer posts CP. What do you do?
   Immediate ban and deletion of the material. If he uses proxies or VPNs, rangeban those. 
    >C. A spammer has slid your catalog and all unpinned threads are gone. What do you do?
    Ideally, this would be prevented by limiting or locking thread creation until the spammer leaves. Otherwise, make the best of it and see if we can get threads restored.
>4. What time range(s) would you normally be able to keep an eye on the board?
Regular burger hours. 
>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?

some stupid fucking script kiddie was hitting the login endpoint a few hundred times per second from the onion

stop being a skid faggot.
15 replies and 6 files omitted. View the full thread

the temporary solution I've implemented is a separate .onion for moderators, who are the only people who would ever need to login in the first place. 
dos skids want the site unavailable. if they can't have that, wasting *human* time engineering overblown solutions and/or chasing circuits is a good alternative. 

since I've gotten involved, I'm also reviewing jschan's code to see if basic form validation can happen/is happening *before* expensive operations are incurred. 

the attack stopped roughly three hours after I shut his ass up.

What do you mean by bunkerized nginx? It sounds like adding a bunch of limits and restrictions which is generally the fastest way to unintentionally dos yourself.

I see the spammers come to demoralize and distract every time somebody reports obviously broken stuff.
this seems to be the case. for example, the thread watcher doesn't exist.

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
