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

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.

Also, would be nice to have invidious embed support. https://invidious.io/ Invidious is an open source alternative front-end to YouTube. I think it needs to be done for each instance individually, take a look here and do it for at least the most popular ones : https://api.invidious.io/ As a personal request, add the FDN instance to : https://invidious.fdn.fr/ please, would be great.
>>15485 >>15901 Such features are provided by the LynxChan software itself. We cannot, without patching the software or creating a plugin ourselves, add support for additional embed formats.

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.
Dudder removed the webring because he's a tech illiterate that can't get it to work properly with sportschan (it was displaying pph updates as if years long gaps were between posts). It's also funny how uppity you're getting despite how sportschan is easily more active than any of the webring sites save maybe zzzchan. Petty faggot.

Hey, just had a banner idea Anonymous 09/15/2022 (Thu) 17:24:50 No.15888 [Reply]
I use it on my board and thought it would be a cool idea to have it site wide, each board editing the smoke part to add board name (or whatever wanted) resizing it and voila ! Anyway, feel free to use it or not. Just willing to pay an homage to anon.cafe.

/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

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.

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
