Community Announcements Anonymous Board owner 05/21/2020 (Thu) 16:31:32 No.13261 [Reply] [Last]
Sometimes boards do things and think that it would be nice for other boards to know about it. Every week - assuming there are events - we'll post upcoming events in the global announcement slot as smaller community announcements. If you'd like your event to be added to the rotation, post here with your: >Board >Event name >Event thread >Event date and time (please provide time in UTC at minimum plus whatever other timezones you'd like included) Board owners may suppress community announcements without also hiding all global announcements if they desire by using custom CSS to hide class "community-announcements-board-owners-feel-free-to-hide-this". I've taken the liberty of making /otter/'s Ottercine otter movie night the first event we announce. Good job, /otter/.

Regular streams are over for now. Another anon may use the channel in the future, but just giving a heads up.

Please remove 8chan.moe from your webring following list. Blacklist optional. Anonymous 05/12/2021 (Wed) 05:13:35 No.14384 [Reply] [Last]
As it stands, anon.cafe is the only site in the webring that is following 8chan.moe. Other sites have blacklisted the site in history for numerous reasons. This site is currently the only site in the entire webring that is following 8chan.moe. I'm here to convince you why you should stop doing that. 8chan.moe has been extremely unpopular amongst anons across the entire webring for numerous reasons. It's getting to a point that it is impossible to ignore the complaints. Please hear me out entirely. First is the fact that after many months and several lies, they have absolutely no interest in conforming to webring standards. They are one of the only sites in the webring that has failed to conform to fair practice in the webring by failing to fully implement the webring plugin. Very few sites have failed to do this, and the other sites are for the most part rather small. 8chan.moe however, is the largest site in the webring currently with the most activity, and they have failed to implement the webring after several months of being asked to. They have no interest in joining the webring properly. If you don't believe me and need proof, please read this thread: https://8chan.moe/site/res/1880.html Several months ago you blacklisted 8chan.moe from your site because they failed to properly implement the webring. They still haven't committed to fully and properly implementing the webring. When people complain, they ignore it. They have never been interested in properly implementing the webring. All they care about is that people from the webring get advertised to visit 8chan.moe and they have never had the good faith to enable the webring GUI on their site. It has been several months and they have not fixed it. They won't even respond to it anymore. The second biggest complaint is that they harbor Mark. Mark is known for bringing the press and other undesirables to anything he inhabits. The fear is that this could eventually infect the rest of the webring. However, without proper integration to the rest of the webring, this is honestly unlikely, but it is still a complaint that is raised. The third and most recent complaint is that 8chan.moe has begun to allow content that is not legal in the United States and is very likely not legal elsewhere. The United States is usually considered the pinnacle of free speech and even their limitations, such as the DOST test, are echoed around the rest of the world. This is what caused 8chan to be delisted on the only other site they were listed in the webring. Pic related. The fourth and final reason is just plainly that you cannot trust the word of Acid. He has made so many numerous promises to correctly implement the webring and even at the beginning he started the webring with some "peering agreement" thing which backfired at him. He decided to reverse that decision as soon as he became bombarded with webring users who complained at him. However, due to a lack of complaints about his extremely bad-faith nature and his flat-out lies about his intentions, his site has been allowed to be included in a substantial part of the webring for months now. It's time to remove his site from the webring and stop trusting him. My hope is that you will remove him from your following list which will remove him from the webring. I hope nobody in the future is ever suckered into adding back 8chan.moe. Thank you for reading this post.

this is the /christian/ BO! i have been wondering about the possibility of increasing the number of pages per board one of my anons has told me that on lynxchan it is possible to have as many as 20 pages per board i am not knowledgeable enough in these matters to be sure if this is true or not or what the logistical problems could be but if it is possible it would help my board bigly as over the past few months the activity here has increased
>>15524 Increasing the global page limit would increase the total disk space we need to rent from our host. Any donation shortfall comes directly from our pockets, which in practice means that we pay for everything ourselves. As such, we're afraid that we're not considering an increase to the global page limit at this time. It is true that LynxChan allows the maximum number of board pages to be set to a higher value, but LynxChan is not the limiting factor for Anon.cafe. We limit the number of pages per board because that determines the total average amount of disk space required to host each of them. Increasing the maximum number of pages per board also increases the total space that each board consumes on our host, which in turn requires us to rent more disk space. This applies to all boards on the site; we have to plan our space not only for popular boards like /christian/ and /k/, but also for smaller boards that consume space slowly, as well as bunkers that may unpredictably activate and begin quickly consuming space as their users try to migrate content to them. Thank you for your understanding, as well as that of your posters.
>>15530 NTA, but thanks for the explanation Admin. How much is the add'l disk spaces costs? How does anyone donate to help cover your costs? BTW, do you have any official, specified, approach for bunkers laid out to present their content to you for replication over in case they ever do need to migrate here? I mean, is there an official way stipulated to automatically populate a bunker as needed?
>>15530 Post a monero address, and maybe people will send some :^)
>>15531 >>15532 We accept Bitcoin and Monero donations. Our addresses are listed at https://anon.cafe/.static/pages/about.html

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.

Message too long. Click here to view full text.

>>15187 >You can use audio streaming software (e.g. Mixxx) I started to use Mixxx to stream jazz, and every time I do, I can't watch/hear any other sound/video source in my computer while I'm streaming, anyone know why? And how to stop Mixxx from muting everything? Also, when playing songs that has moonrunes on its namefile, it doesn't show them on the stream for some strange reason.
>>15434 >What if we invited them to the webring itself? If you knew them you probably wouldn't say this. At least they reserve it to themselves, they did use 8ch for almost a year back in the day and few noticed it, but they are quite impish and are very obvious when they step outside their boards.
>>15525 Sound card limitation or the format you're using for mixxx. Try messing around with the sound API and query devices under sound hardware in your preferences. Also play around with songs/test them when changing those settings since some sound APIs will allow for sound mixing, but will reduce sound quality in order to do so.
>>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.

Adding Rumble Embed Support Anonymous 02/24/2022 (Thu) 04:59:27 No.15485 [Reply]
Is it possible to add embed support for Rumble? They are emerging as a free speech alternative to youtube and have been growing in popularity since about November.
>>15485 Never heard of it. Where are Rumble links being posted?
>>15486 I've been posting them to PLW and intend to post them more often to /k/ when given a choice between them and youtube. They are quickly taking off as a jewtube alternative after a few prominent figures like Joe Rogan promoted them. Right now a lot of emerging youtube personalities are getting more views on rumble than they are on youtube.

In what ways is anon cafe better than other imageboards according to you?
35 posts and 13 images omitted.
This one is comfy
>>14345 Well, it's uhhh You see, umm uhhh It's just good okay?!
>>14345 I find its' small user base to be an attractive factor, as I have always browsed 4chan, 8chan/8kun and so on. So it's nice to just chill. The boards on this chan are also mostly within the, sort of semantic field of /comfy/ so. I just like to use stuff that's different. And this seems pretty nice

Why is zzzchan's hidden service blacklisted from your webring.json?
11 posts and 1 image omitted.
>>14770 The main reason is probably that being on the webring means association with shit stirring trannies
>>14772 Niche topic boards really have very little to gain by joining the webring, I recall that /otter/ only ever had one or two anons trickle in and leave again while it was on anon.cafe.
I'm going to put my question here because I don't want to open a new thread. Which board from the webring aside fron 8moe and this board are allowing board creation by their users?
Open file (98.30 KB 1024x768 white people.jpg)
>>15274 You meant sites? First of all markchan.moe is not part of the webring. Secondly, and answering your question - none. That train is long gone, the big traditional imageboard formula is dead because it's so easily susceptible to jewish takedowns as was seen with 8chan. The webring is a decentralized congregation of smaller sites with tighter board control made to combat the hebrew menace.
