Banner Suggestions Anonymous 08/22/2019 (Thu) 22:28:49 No. 2 [Reply]
Feel free to suggest images for banners here, I can crop them into something nice so just go nuts.

If you want to make one yourself the size limit is 200kb and 300x100 is the prefered size but not required.

Suggestions can be global or board specific.

Site Disruption and Future Anonymous Board owner 02/17/2022 (Thu) 06:24:27 No. 256 [Reply]
The old webserver exploded. No idea why, but the backups were fine and the instance itself was working so it was easy enough to salvage config files and other things. It's sort of a good thing, it finally motivated me to upgrade the backend from the now 2-year-outdated version it was on. New backend should be much better, and much more memory efficient. Some things are of course broken, for now the frontpage images are broken and captchas as well (though regular users won't notice that last one). This all brings up a question. I just took 2 days off work to spin up a new environment and get dependencies in order. That's a lot of money to invest into this project that, to date, has already cost me a fair amount. I never expected any returns, but at the same time I don't think I still have such a huge drive to preserve that anonymous thread culture I was such a fan of that I can justify such large expenditures. So what do I do to make this worthwhile, other than offlining and ruining everyone's fun and wasting my own time? I might add a donation link to help pay for hosting and other bills.

I'd be ok with a donation link. While the site doesn't see as much use as it used to I think it's a cool project

I highly recommend using cloudflare's csam scanning tool to stop illegal images from appearing on your site. It also helps to block proxies as well. I think as an imageboard community we can stop this shit but we need to start taking measures to put an end to it. If you want to step away from your board for awhile don't leave posting open. It will get spammed. Just put it in read only until you come back. And yes, I'm posting this on all the imageboards I find. No I'm not a bot.

No way, dude.

CSAM spam Anonymous 07/31/2022 (Sun) 16:04:56 No. 282 [Reply]
How do we stop subhumans and bots from spamming this board with illegal shit?
Maybe some sort of captcha. Are there any open-source ones?
Blocking Tor exit nodes and blacklisting certain regions known for malicious traffic (e.g. parts of Russia) might help as well
>>284 What would happen to innocent Russians from those regions, then?
>>285 While I agree that blanket bans are generally a shitty solution, this sort of abuse has to be cracked down on hard. If left unchecked, it may become a real threat to this site's continued existence and the safety of its users.

The Webring wants YOU Anonymous 04/28/2020 (Tue) 17:53:12 No. 187 [Reply]
Hey there, furry lads,
I was wondering if you guys were any interested in joining the Webring, which is a federated system of imageboards, think of it as a group of sister boards helping each other out in times of need and advertising each other's website (but to anonymous imageboard posters). It would really help with our lack of certain boards that you yourself already host. Lemme know if you're interested and if you are, consider browsing anon.cafe or fatchan.org to join the project.
Thank you for your time.

I am not sure if this a serious post or not, but I'll give some shitty counter-points:
>anons over there might despise anything having still connection with 4chan (in your case - /trash/ furry general threads backup) I didn't lurked 4cuckchan for a long of time (thanks to webring mentality), but some general threads were alright, including /xen/.
>although there's already /furry/ board, but it's mostly bumped by and is full of <buc< shit nowadays
>anons on the various IBs of webring hates each other for many of reasons that includes, but not limited to IB Admin allowing to host certain fetish board
>webring needs to be updated if new IB joins, and it's seems to even possible for one IB admin to "blacklist" other IB from showing up in their board list, although it's supposed to happen if said other IB is being shady
>there's no separate entity/site but maybe I didn't lurked good enough to check current webring without board blacklisting, only through related IBs. This causing conspiracy about IBs fighting for webring control, thus creating pic related. On positive note, however - anon.cafe hosts /shelter/ for anyone in the webring.
>if boards creation is allowed, it's either 8moe cancer (unrestricted-sh board creation - spams webring + defeats the point) or "please make an account and fill the form and we'll say if we want this kind board or not" while not tipping on what content they look for, don't mind or will refuse. Oh boy, I sure like to create useless accounts.

Yes, I am aware of necroposting.
This sounds like a good idea, if it doesn't bring drama here or propels this IB into their drama.

Is it just me or? Anonymous 02/07/2021 (Sun) 22:12:55 No. 217 [Reply]
Is all of the code for this site just line for line bunkerchan's code?
This site runs off the same backend, called LynxChan. Both Bunkerchan and FurChan seem to use derivatives of the same frontend, called PenumbraLynx.

Bunkerchan's frontend seems more similar to the base PenumbraLynx distro, while FurChan has a few modifications to things like post outlines, post content being removed when the quick reply is exited, etc.

They are essentially the same though, outside a few cosmetic differences.
