late.city and mle.party redirect here and on the other bunkers, but I cannot seem to find them from here. What gives?
I see late.city from the boards page here, but on late.city boards page I only see it and julay.world
>>161 that's weird

Just wondering, what's this site gonna be when 8chan comes back? Will it still be used for anything?
10 posts and 4 images omitted.
What's going on there? Context?
I haven't been there in weeks, I was only basing my opinion on the anons there that were smearing 08chan, Endchan, vch.moe etc. for stupid reasons.
>wanting to go back
tbh I wouldn't get my hopes up about the future of 8Chan, even if it comes back up it'll probably get buttraped by Boomers and Idiots so yeah... I like it here better.
>>38 it's back but called different

Hey, I installed the webring on Floridachan.com but it doesn't seem to be working. All it does is write to spider_cache.txt, but none of the webring boards show up on the Boards page, and my webring.json page is not created. Any ideas?
Looks like a pretty nice board.
Maybe try asking on somewhere that isn't the slowest board of the webring? The smug support thread is here: https://smuglo.li/a/res/509523+50.html and Julay's meta board is here: https://julay.world/meta/ , they can probably help you more.

Right now all recently-posted images are shown on the front page whether they be onanistic or otter. I can make it so that images from SFW boards appear on the front page, but do we want that? Is it a good idea? I want to hear from different boards.
Good idea. I think it would certainly make the place more cafeesque, not having the first thing you see be a bunch of porn.
Yes. We'll try it out for now and see how we feel about it.
Another possibility, if it's easy to implement, is to auto-spoiler any image from NSFW boards in the front page, while on the boards themselves they may or may not be spoilered.

Sorry, mate, I'm the BO of /lang/, would you mind making my board SFW? Or, could you tell me how to make it so from my moderation panel?
Thanks in advance!
It's confusing, but on LynxChan-based imageboards only global admins can change SFW status. >>>/lang/ is now SFW.
Yeah, I noticed, cause there's an option for unlisting your board (which I've been told on Julay that functions like that) but it just doesn't seem right. Anyhow, thanks brother.

Hello, friends, 314chan installed the webring plugin and they'd like to be linked back from the rest of the webring. Could you add them to the list?
>>14808 >behind the great cuckflare wall. No thanks friend, they are clearly an (((enemy))) of mankind. If you support them, you probably are too.
Links to Your site on boards page send people to https://anon.cafe/314chan.org/* instead of https://314chan.org/* . It's either because BO added 2 314chan sites to webring.json or You forgot to prepend https:// to boards path.
>>14809 >(((enemy))) of mankind. If you support them, you probably are too. what did she mean by this?

Why is zzzchan's hidden service blacklisted from your webring.json?
8 posts and 1 image omitted.
Speaking of which why is otterchan not on the webring?
>>14754 Good question. They actually used to be part of Anoncafe not long ago.
>>14754 >>14767 I'd guess that the main reason is that their site software (wakaba + futaba + futallaby) hasn't had a webring component written for it. I also recall them actively deciding not to be part of the webring, but I can't remember where I saw that.
>>14770 The main reason is probably that being on the webring means association with shit stirring trannies

InstantIB.LynxChan + Onion: An Imageboard Host Builder Anonymous Board owner 04/30/2020 (Thu) 17:08:36 No.10678 [Reply] [Last]
UPDATE: instantib.lynxchan version 2.4.10 released. I'm releasing a modified version of Anon.cafe's build and maintenance tooling. It is an Ansible role that turns a CentOS 7 server into a LynxChan 2.4.10 host with an nginx reverse proxy in front to handle HTTPS termination and traffic limiting. It is very configurable and includes variable documentation as well as a tutorial to help those unfamiliar with Ansible get up to speed. It's my hope that this will help Anon spin up new imageboards without having to struggle against many of their software's peculiarities and tedium. I've also added a role that will set up Tor hidden services; it permits either hands-off management of the hidden service private key or storage of the hidden service private key in an encrypted Ansible Vault. InstantIB.LynxChan is at https://gitgud.io/Skyline/instantib.lynxchan InstantIB.Onion is at https://gitgud.io/Skyline/instantib.onion The role bundles and builds several pieces of software not available in CentOS repositories (e.g. ExifTool to strip EXIF from images and FFmpeg to generate better thumbnails), may optionally create a special user that can pull remote MongoDB database dumps from elsewhere, ensures that both MongoDB and LynxChan will restart on failure, detects and handles necessary service restarts/reloads, may install and configure the webring/alternate captcha/native image generation addons if desired, supports proper multi-device favicons, provides enhanced TLS security by default, optionally generates strong custom Diffie-Hellman (DH) key-exchange parameters for extra security, allows optional IP range blocking at the network firewall, configures Security-Enhanced Linux to work gracefully with MongoDB, and allows optional use of the notoriously obtuse Sendmail to relay email from LynxChan to an external mail host. If you have some basic GNU/Linux literacy and follow the tutorial then read the documentation carefully, you will be able to use this to spin up and maintain a LynxChan imageboard of your own. You can override and adjust the variables and then re-run your playbook to gracefully detect and adjust only what needs to be adjusted on your server. The role is presently in alpha; although I use it with full confidence on anon.cafe, it is possible that it might not work for some combination of options I've never tried, or I've broken it while adding the latest enhancements for genpop use. I recommend that you try it out thoroughly against a virtual machine before using it on any kind of production instance. Be careful and methodical. Future tutorials will include the Paranoid Admin's Imageboard Hosting Primer, in which I will briefly explain the different privacy and security trade-offs you can make as an imageboard admin for yourself and your users, making payments and taking donations without compromising your identity, understanding how to maintain OPSEC+COMSEC+FINSEC in such a way that a single breach will not be your undoing, how all this might be done in practice, and more. To those who do not have the literacy this tooling assumes and would prefer something a little more intensively hand-holding, more will come. I nevertheless encourage you to muddle your way through with a VM, a CentOS 7 netinst ISO, and a search engine - if nothing else, you will come out knowing a little more than you came in with.

>>14030 Thanks the XSEC info is appreciated Admin.
>>14159 Two of the biggest reasons people don't use blacked.moe is because it's ran by retarded namefag attentionwhores. Basically the entire existence of zzzchan can be credited entirely to the fact that Acid and Mark have no respect for anonymity. Blacked.moe didn't become popular because everyone wanted to flood into a site where they knew the admins. If you think that's what happened then you clearly weren't around when the site was completely fucking dead and everyone chose to use fatchan instead. Blacked.moe got popular because the alternatives kept going down. There is value in stability. But stability doesn't require that you abandon any and all sense of anonymity while you post your face and information about your favorite forms of sexual degeneracy for all the world to see on pozzed social media platforms.
>>14166 >Blacked.moe got popular because the alternatives kept going down. Likely due in no small measure due to mark.gov's """backer's""" gayops.
A possible host for anons low on cash https://services.kolyma.org/hosting
I found this infograph on either of webrings /tech/ board. How much of it is applicable towards creating own imageboard?

I really like this site and its userbase, but it is unbearably slow -- by that, I mean it loads slowly. It took about 5 minutes for this page to come up. I browse other sites while I wait, so I know it's not my internet connection. Is there any plan to fix this? It's unusable.
Really? It works just fine for me.
>>14623 My internet is pretty garbage. Limited to about 120k down on a good day and ping times sometimes up into the 5second+ range. This place still loads almost as fast as anything else, and certainly not anything like 5 minutes. Maybe it's sourcing something off site that for whatever reasons takes forever over your ISP? Maybe somebody could suggest an easy program or plugin that could instrument what exactly is taking forever to load. I'm lazy so I just pick through tcpdump output to start with a general idea of what might be out of place.
>>14623 Works fine for me - most pages load in under a second. Maybe your ISP or their upstream provider is throttling the part of the Internet where this site lives?

3chan's bid Anonymous 05/13/2021 (Thu) 23:00:53 No.14517 [Reply]
https://boards.3chan.co/b/thread/16482 The guys over at 3chan seems to be interested in joining the webring, but the plugin is not compatible with their version. Is there an alternate one that could connect them to it?

>>14547 >using a third party communication system is a better way to get in contact with the users of your imageboard than posting in the imageboard >you need a third party communication system on top of a website that's literally a platform for communication Only literal, unironical brainwashing would make someone think this way.
