I demand an explanation of auto-bans. Why did talking about captchas cause me to be banned?
>>16051 Global autobans are issued if your post contains certain phrases that appear in spam, frequently posted rule-breaking content, or other such things. We never issue autobans on the basis of single words unless they're very unique criminal keywords or URL fragments, and we try to target phrases that a legitimate poster is very unlikely to use even by accident. However, there are a lot of phrases in our list and it's possible that we've targeted one that a legitimate poster happens to want to use. Just as the ban message says, if you get incorrectly hit by an autoban then please appeal the ban with an explanation of the sort of thing you were trying to post. When you appeal the ban, we can see the phrase that made it happen and adjust the list if necessary. We can't publish our ban list because that would just tell our spammers which parts of their posts to adjust. The point of autobans is to make the site more expensive and troublesome to spam, especially by forcing spammers to use tedious trial-and-error. Please note that some Board Owners might be running their own automatic moderation software that puppets an account they've elevated to board volunteer status. If you were autobanned from a particular board instead of globally, then this is probably what happened and you need to discuss it with the board staff in question.
>>16052 Based Anoncafe Admins are based.

Christian /meta/ Thread Deleting User Grievances Anonymous 12/11/2022 (Sun) 16:35:38 No.15995 [Reply]
As the Board Owner is not allowing the redress of legitimate grievances in the /christian/ meta thread over his decision to censor imageboard history and is making an active effort to make it seem as if everyone is in agreement with him, I am making a temporary thread on /meta/ for anons to express their disdain. Please keep talks about the other fag out of this thread as that is simply derailment. Thread that is to be deleted: https://web.archive.org/web/20221211155420/https://anon.cafe/christian/res/15244.html Pics related were censored within the designated place for discussing grievances. I've left my (You)s in for posterity. Had to use my phone because he had already deleted the posts in-thread before I could archive.

>>16033 Well have fun posting on mod cucked board, i hope you enjoy your posts getting deleted on the whim of Christianjanny. You can just make a rule not allow cucked porn and pedo shit on the /christian/ board.
>>16033 cuckquean is SO much better :^)
>lurk /christian/ pretty much once a year >first post in ages is to call the janny a moron Well, I guess I am now invested in lurking these threads to see what happens. Because honestly, I hope that idiot decides "to be fruitful", and ditches image boards in their entirety.

Dolphin poster Anonymous 12/07/2019 (Sat) 20:21:16 No.223 [Reply]
I think he has become a site-wide problem right now, so I thought I'd bring attention to it here. Can he be permanently banned from all boards whenever he appears? Although he appeared in /r9k/, he's begun to spam /otter/ and other parts of the webring.

For those that aren't aware, he:
>Posted links to CP on /r9k/
>Defended the above post
>Continually evades bans
>Avatarfags with a plush dolphin
>Is currently spamming /r9k/ and /otter/

A robot has made archives of most of his posts (first ones missing unfortunately):

Pic related sums him up. You can see the dolphin plushie near the computer screen, the /pol/ shit he regularly posts, and his interest in computing. He has also started posting about sharks too, along with a shark plush toy.

Why is fed-honeypot TOR allowed exactly? It's literally just pedo spammers who shit up boards and post links to pedo shit (I assume since I'm not clicking that shit)
>>15927 Privacy for legitimate posters, many of whom use Tor. The super-majority of CP link-spam we see comes from ordinary IP addresses.

(CANCELLED) Internet Radio on the Anon.cafe Broadcasting System Anonymous Board owner 10/03/2021 (Sun) 16:45:28 No.15187 [Reply]
Update: The ACBS has been shut down and is no longer available. 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?

>>15534 Nice work Anon, gratz.
Is this project still going on? 1. Which board(s) will you be streaming under? /ac/ 2. What sort of thing do you want to stream? Music and board announcements 3. How often do you think you'll stream, and for how long? Every a couple of months I suppose. Not very often, I'm planning to use the radio as a communication channel for my anons and maybe share the key with them if they want to stream more often. 4. What would you like your stream's mount URL to be? radio-acolita.m3u 5. What streamer username would you like? Streamanon 6. What email address may we send your credentials to, if and when approved? acolitosadmin@protonmail.com
>>15910 Done. Credentials have been sent to that email address.
Thanks, man
The ACBS is no longer available.

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.
Open file (10.76 KB 512x512 invidious.jpg)
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
