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.

board i meant.
How long does it take for you stupid retards to finally implement autoban upon selected words? Its like you don't even care if this place turns to 4chan or something. If you can't do your job properly then pull the plug already, I'm sick of your half ass shit.

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?

lmao, opinion immediately discarded. Kill yourself.
Would it be okay to make a /k/ here? The moderation on cafe/k/ has gotten ridiculously ironfisted, and I feel like we could do with a weapons board that has a more early 8/k/ tier moderation policy than anything the autists in cuck/k/ or cafe/k/ can apparently manage. Or is the interest in such a board too low?

>I can't read: the post
I would like a non-coofvid-obsessed /k/ as well.

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.

Where is the ban status page on zzzchan?
Replies: >>1111
there isn't one yet apparently, you can only see your ban if you get banned and try to post
Replies: >>1112 >>1113
b-bbbbbbut muh transparency!!
Replies: >>1114
Ban statuses for other anons aren't really that useful to see. The board logs show most of everything you need for moderation to be transparent.

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.

Hanging foreskin was not a mod, he was global staff along with other fags with a far more malevolent purpose and Julay died from their dishonesty and them effectively enforcing the same shit people left/didn't go to 8kun for.
Is there an /auto/ board or something like that in the webring ?

/auto/ as in /o/, cars? I just searched for it and it doesn't look like there is one.

It's time for plw to die and zzzchan will be its successor. With the lack of moderation and the abundance of shit stirrers, a lot of users are pissed and looking for an alternative. Fish, you need to create a /animu/ board here and regulate it better than the plw one. Then we will start with the smaller boards and eventually plw will die on its own and lolretard finally kills himself. Perfect plan

You say that as if /geimu/ currently claims the best vidya board in the webring. And I humbly accept that claim. 

zzzchan's /v/ and 8moe /v/ are so alike that either is a 'viable' alternative in the off-chance PLW perishes. I've been saying this for a long time and have yet to see any real counter-arguments, what exactly is the difference between the two besides who owns them?

Hi, still around here despite gaymu being the bestest of all?
>You say that as if /geimu/ currently claims the best vidya board in the webring. And I humbly accept that claim. 
Not even that anon but what that clearly meant is that the title is disputed as long as there are other vidya boards, I'm guessing you both forgot about /vg/, which by the way is surely a better board than yours.

Do you want to webring with Antares? Am aware of a few anons in /v/'s meta thread disapproving of the webring/julay drama. 

We mainly offer /misc/ which is an 'any topic' board without a predefined culture. The current topics on there are nature, literature, copyright law, current events, and web services. We're also have anons looking for more discussions on science and mathematics.

The board is generally the same anons that ran (and play on) the Xonotic servers in the AFPS threads starting 2016.

Seeing as how this is the second time I've managed to break things when updating the site, I feel it's best to set up some external ways to announce when things are going wrong.

Currently, i'm looking to have :
1. A twitter account, though I'd rather use anything else. please let me know if you know a better alternative.
2. Some sort of online calendar for announcing updates.

 jschan is technically beta software so things may just break at times despite my best efforts. The tentative plan going forward is to update on Tuesday morning every other week or so. If the site breaks within that window, I'm scrambling to fix it.

I'd like to apologize for not being as transparent as possible, and thank all of you for putting up with my fuckups as this is my first time as a sysadmin. Feel free to address any concerns you have below.

You can try the fediverse. It's decentralized FOSS social media and supports RSS. The major downside is having to find an instance that doesn't fediblock "the nazis" or some arbitrary topic.
pl.smuglo.li runs a pleroma instance for example, but you can choose a few others like friendi.ca.

oh come on anon, we all know people who get cancelled on fedi always end up with more of a reach than when they started. just look at alex gleason.
