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.

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

There's something with with a ban on /k/: >>>/k/38904 I was posting bareback, so it's not just two anons on the same VPN node, and I'm the only one on my local network. Some metaposter in a thread I never opened got banned, and I'm getting blocked by the ban too. Supposedly it should only apply to the captcha bypass ID, but evidently that's not working properly.
>>15840 >Tied to the captcha bypass ID The two posts were under the exact same post history with the exact same bypass ID when a range ban was issued, if that assists in identifying the alleged problem.
>>15841 >were under the exact same post history For what it's worth, my public ID, as opposed to the back-end one, from the connection caught by the ban has stayed the same through the entire current Ukraine thread (6a95cc), and there have been no posts I can see with that ID that are not mine. Likewise in the ww3g thread.
>>15842 Yes, that was the one the original ban was issued based on (why it was an 8 hour ban instead of the default 3 day ban usually used). I usually screencap but this was a rare exception where I was phone-moderating so I failed to do so. Intent is to swap from ASN bans to 1/2 octet bans where the alleged issue should not arise again. Should it do so, email me.
>>15843 >the original ... 8 hour ban Wait, so the week long one wasn't the only one "I" got? The most recent post I made, and the only one I made today, was >>>/k/38883 and nothing after that until I saw the week long ban message (the first anon.cafe ban message I've seen, hence my confusion over its format). That was less than 8 hours ago, so I'm not sure where the 8 hour ban fits in.

Can webring sites that do not link back to the webring be removed? Anonymous 08/06/2022 (Sat) 15:49:45 No.15839 [Reply]
For instance sportschan or whatever removed all webring support. If so they can fuck right off and enjoy their death without free advertisement.

/christian/ is ruined Anonymous 07/26/2022 (Tue) 04:17:08 No.15642 [Reply] [Last]
Other anons will be able back up these claims, but /christian/ has been ruined by the vol known as AntichristHater, whose sins include the following and make him unfit to be the moderator of a Christian imageboard: >being a coomer >>>/christian/13972 https://archive.ph/kBUFQ >being a zionist >>>/christian/14478 https://archive.ph/2XClu >swearing (multiple instances) >>>/christian/14627 https://archive.ph/ElbtJ >hypocrisy >>>/christian/14626 https://archive.ph/ElbtJ

>>15833 he deleted his post after i called him on it i'll keep his buffoonish excuses here so everyone can see the kind of person in charge of the board
>>15834 have you reported him to the mods yet? he should be removed at this point for still making excuses for antichristhater
>>15835 they seem to not like people making global reports. i dont mind waiting for them to respond, if they seem to be ignoring it i guess i'll try and get their attention since this is serious and involves the guy promoting terrorism, with the BO being complicit.
>>15836 yeah, BO's shouldnt be allowed to just sit by and watch

Deleting Boards Anonymous Board owner 05/02/2020 (Sat) 09:49:50 No.10741 [Reply]
This thread is for boards that are going to be deleted. All boards up for deletion will be given a minimum of seven days notification before it happens to allow them to be evacuated. It's not fun to cull boards, but it is necessary for the health of Anon.cafe and the health of the webring. There are no set criteria for deletion, but factors that make a board more likely to be deleted include long inactivity (if that board is not a bunker) with no signs of revival, a long-absent owner (if that board is not a bunker), very low post count/indications of stillbirth, and other factors that indicate the board has likely calcified and is unlikely to revive. Well-maintained, unindexed bunkers will not be deleted unless their community appears to have disappeared entirely. As of now - Saturday May 02, 2020 at 0935 - the following boards have been selected for deletion: >>>/girltalk/ >>>/lovelive/ >>>/mh/ >>>/psyid/ >>>/int/ >>>/nofap/ Boards at risk of being considered stillborn include: >>>/hentaiclub/ Boards that have had no activity but are presently exempt from being considered stillborn because of Julay.world's circumstances include: >>>/icup/

>>15548 so mod power abuse is welcomed? Ok noted, this is how you lose anons.
>>15544 >>15549 There's some other /k/ boards around if users ever want to migrate. That's another option
>>15631 If anon wants them linked in the sticky I'd be more than happy to add them since having multiple places to discuss things is better than one.
>>15633 >If anon wants them linked in the sticky I'd be more than happy to add them since having multiple places to discuss things is better than one. There's /k/ and /2k/ from Endchan but the boards have been somewhat inactive for a while https://endchan.gg/2k/ https://endchan.gg/k/ I was going to recommende zzzchan's /k/ board, but it looks like it's already in the sticky

In which place I can host an inter-webring project? Anonymous 05/14/2022 (Sat) 18:27:43 No.15556 [Reply]
Hello. I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask so excuse me in advance if not. What I want to create is a webring for imageboard streaming projects (videogames, movies, podcasts, etc.), I have some knowledge regarding html, css and javascript so I suppose It shouldn't be hard to host a webpage with different affiliated streaming projects, but I would like to brainstorm ideas with other anons.
5 posts omitted.
>>15563 Apologies for my misunderstanding Anon, no you can't.
>>15563 >>15564 /server/ BO here, I think it would be neat if you could stream directly like that, but as far as I know you can only embed vids from youtube or similar. Maybe you could stream from youtube but then you'd have to contend with youtube's rules and limitations. If we had another site from which we could embed vids/streams which had more similar freedom of speech that we have on most imageboards, then it might work better

>>15561 I think I wasn't clear enough. What I want to do is something like pic related. A website with banners, descriptions, links and other useful information about the different anonymous streaming projects around the internet, so they can share viewers and community members. Something like this: https://districts.neocities.org/ But for imageboard projects instead of neocities websites. A imageboard for streaming only could be cool, nevertheless I don't have neither the money not the knowledge to create something like that, at least for now. >>15566 I've been working on a livestreaming project with other two guys during the last two years and we built this website: https://ghostscreen.neocities.org/ What we do is we stream to a livestreaming host (we used to use angelthump but now we use 8chan TV), we put the player on our website and next to the player we put an embed thread that we use as chat, like this: https://ghostscreen.neocities.org/canales/ghost.html It's quite confortable. The only problem is that some imageboards doesn't allow embedding their threads, anoncafe one example of this, but I'm confident if you discuss this idea with anoncafe's admin they will allow embedding. If you are still interested on this idea, I can show you how I built my website, I can even share my source code and even give you a space and a channel. It depends on you.
>>15566 Cytube with cockfile mp4s works fine. Gikopoi is used by Smug sometimes. There's the ABS and there was a webring media calendar back in the day. Maybe I'm just confused about what anon can't do on /server/. Random anon chiming in.

>>15556 Fatchan here, I put together http://stream.loki/ recently. Available over lokinet only https://lokinet.org (onion network kinda like tor, but way faster). It's a simple streaming setup with very little backend, mostly a few bash scripts and nginx for RTMP ingest. It can show viewer count and has a chat which connects to IRC on the side. Right now a music radio runs 24/7, anime runs occasionally, and ptchan.org admin has done a few streams with OBS. I may also do the occasional jschan development stream. If you have a fun idea you can ask for a stream key. I will keep slots limited for now because I don't want to blow through all my bandwidth.
