Requesting Boards Anonymous Board owner 09/01/2019 (Sun) 02:54:24 No.3 [Reply] [Last]
Self-service board creation is disabled. Anon.cafe doesn't grant boards to anyone who asks, but perhaps we'd like to host your board. Broadly, we'll consider boards that aren't duplicated elsewhere on the webring but we weigh up a variety of factors. Being comfy is a plus! But, in the end it comes down to our private decision. Please review the Global Rules before you request a board. Please also be certain that you are willing to carry out the duties of a board owner. Boards whose owners do not log in for more than two weeks will be marked inactive and put up for claim. Boards that remain dead for an extended period and/or demonstrate a failure to thrive may be deleted. If you'd like to run a board on anon.cafe, please create an account and then post in this thread with: >The username you created >Board URL (e.g. /meta/) >Board name >Board topic >Would you like the board marked SFW (i.e. no explicit or other adult-only content, even behind spoilers)? >Is your board brand new, or a re-creation of a board from the past? >Do you have posters already eager to post on your new board, or are you hoping to attract them after it is created? If the latter, where do you expect to draw them from? >Does your board substantially duplicate or overlap with any other board on the webring? If so, what is so different about your board that you want to make another one? Please specify if you are requesting a board for use as a "bunker", which is a board that will remain inactive and only be used in case your main board hosted elsewhere becomes unavailable. We request that bunker boards remain delisted from the board list and top boards so that we do not pollute the webring with many inactive duplicates of boards. To delist your board, go to Board Management > Settings, check the "Don't index on top boards and board list" box, and click Save. Delisted boards can still be read and posted on, so you can still distribute your new bunker's address to your anons. If your main board becomes inaccessible or you want to turn your bunker into your main board, feel free to relist it by unchecking the aforementioned "Don't index on top boards and board list" box and clicking Save. Please note that because delisted boards can still be posted on, their owners are still expected to log in regularly and clear them of spam or rule-breaking content and that delisted boards whose owners do not log in for some time will still go up for claim as normal. If you keep your bunker clear of spam and rule-breaking content, it will remain unlocked so that posts can be made at any time. If spam or rule-breaking content accumulates, the board will be administratively locked and will only be unlocked by request. By the time we see an unlock request and act on it, your anons may already have been unable to use the bunker for some time. A tidy bunker is a ready bunker.

Are the /christmas/ guys here? Anonymous 12/03/2022 (Sat) 18:14:33 No.15957 [Reply]
Title. Are the guys that organized the crossover event from last year here? I'd like to help moderating and organizing stuff this year. If not, is the board open to be claimed?

This is the second thread in which you post about things you notice that are wrong that aren't "it's slow". If something is fixed or changed, it'll be posted here. Previous thread: >>18

Is it me or the site is pretty slow lately ?
/christian/ is yet again taken over and moderated by antichrist tranny kikes and weabpedos
>>15945 Chobistu is pretty retarded. He even got rid of his only vol in favor of actual discord trannies.
So if I disable names on my board, does that mean I can't use my mod tag either? So the only way I can use my mod tag is to enable names, make the posts I need to with my mod tag, then disable names again?

Dolphin poster Anonymous 12/07/2019 (Sat) 20:21:16 No.223 [Reply]
I think he has become a site-wide problem right now, so I thought I'd bring attention to it here. Can he be permanently banned from all boards whenever he appears? Although he appeared in /r9k/, he's begun to spam /otter/ and other parts of the webring.

For those that aren't aware, he:
>Posted links to CP on /r9k/
>Defended the above post
>Continually evades bans
>Avatarfags with a plush dolphin
>Is currently spamming /r9k/ and /otter/

A robot has made archives of most of his posts (first ones missing unfortunately):

Pic related sums him up. You can see the dolphin plushie near the computer screen, the /pol/ shit he regularly posts, and his interest in computing. He has also started posting about sharks too, along with a shark plush toy.

>20 unique users have posted in the past 24 hours. Seriously, this place needs some more users. It's painfully slow. Other major sites on the webring get several hundred easily. What can we do about this? We have the boards. We have the content. What are we missing?

Why is fed-honeypot TOR allowed exactly? It's literally just pedo spammers who shit up boards and post links to pedo shit (I assume since I'm not clicking that shit)
>>15927 Privacy for legitimate posters, many of whom use Tor. The super-majority of CP link-spam we see comes from ordinary IP addresses.

Internet Radio on the Anon.cafe Broadcasting System Anonymous Board owner 10/03/2021 (Sun) 16:45:28 No.15187 [Reply]
We've overhauled Anon.cafe's Icecast server, named it the Anon.cafe Broadcasting System (ACBS), and are thinking about opening it up for use by boards. You can use audio streaming software (e.g. Mixxx) together with the ACBS to create Internet radio shows that others can tune into, well-known examples elsewhere on the webring being Smug/a/'s r/a/dio, PLW/animu/'s jazz streams, and so on. The ACBS's secure endpoint is at https://radio.anon.cafe and will show any playing streams together with links to begin listening to them. This page will only show streams that are active at that moment. If you consider yourself an anon of one of Anon.cafe's boards and would like to stream over the ACBS, you will need a streamer account. We're still working out the details of how we'll manage this, but at the moment we'd like streamers to have the blessing of the Board Owner whose board the stream is associated with to deter abuse. A Board Owner can bless multiple streamer accounts if they please. To get a streamer account, please figure out what kind of content you'd like to stream, discuss it on whatever board you'll be streaming it under, secure the blessing of the Board Owner, then post in this thread with answers to these questions: 1. Which board(s) will you be streaming under? 2. What sort of thing do you want to stream? 3. How often do you think you'll stream, and for how long? (This won't serve as a commitment or restriction, it's so that we can understand resource timing.) 4. What would you like your stream's mount URL to be? (For example, a stream mount URL of "pancakestream" will show up in the ACBS as /pancakestream and have a playlist URL of https://radio.anon.cafe/pancakestream.m3u ) 5. What streamer username would you like? 6. What email address may we send your credentials to, if and when approved? We'll confirm with the board owner(s) before issuing you a streamer account. Once you have a streamer account, you may use it at will.

>>15533 I found why, MIXXX shutsdown pulseaudio when using ALSA. https://manual.mixxx.org/2.1/en/chapters/preferences.html >Most modern GNU/Linux distributions use PulseAudio by default. When launched from a GUI menu entry or icon, Mixxx suspends PulseAudio while it is running so that Mixxx can use ALSA directly.
>>15534 Nice work Anon, gratz.
Is this project still going on? 1. Which board(s) will you be streaming under? /ac/ 2. What sort of thing do you want to stream? Music and board announcements 3. How often do you think you'll stream, and for how long? Every a couple of months I suppose. Not very often, I'm planning to use the radio as a communication channel for my anons and maybe share the key with them if they want to stream more often. 4. What would you like your stream's mount URL to be? radio-acolita.m3u 5. What streamer username would you like? Streamanon 6. What email address may we send your credentials to, if and when approved? acolitosadmin@protonmail.com
>>15910 Done. Credentials have been sent to that email address.
Thanks, man

File support requests Anonymous 09/19/2022 (Mon) 18:02:39 No.15899 [Reply]
Is it possible to add support for TXT files ? And maybe other text file format. I see you can upload PDF but it would be more convenient to share simple text files in some situations. Also I looked here and there and cannot find information of what type of files can be uploaded on anon.cafe.
There should be an option for Board Owners to add custom file extensions I believe it's called "custom MIME types" or something.
>>15902 Nope, it seems .txt files are not supported site wide. I may be wrong tho.
>>15899 MIME type "text/plain" is now allowed. This type covers ordinary human-readable files. If the server's 'file' command determines that a given text file is a different based on its contents, disallowed MIME type, then it will not be posted.
>>15902 That setting only allows board owners to whitelist a subset of file types that are allowed site-wide. The MIME types that are presently allowed on Anon.cafe are: >image/png >image/jpeg >image/gif >image/bmp >video/webm >audio/mpeg >video/mp4 >video/ogg >audio/ogg >application/ogg >audio/webm >application/pdf >audio/mp3 >audio/mp4 >application/x-shockwave-flash
