In what ways is anon cafe better than other imageboards according to you?
26 posts and 4 images omitted.
>>14345 Honestly it isn't. Just find sites that have boards you're interested in, and if there's nothing there that interests you, move on.
>>14347 >Less boards >>14348 >Few boards >>14352 >there are not many boards >>14356 >relatively small number of boards >>14366 >few number of boards It amazes me how many people are saying literally the same shit and this site has the most boards of any IB in the webring at the time of posting this. The only other thing people are posting is "it's comfy" which is subjective anyway.
>>14422 Well it is also true that anons here are usually less prone to show their jaded feelings, hence being more open or "friendly". This makes for an interesting phenomenon, many anons here are indeed actually tender meat in search of a decent imageboard while others are clearly couple decades-old internet lurkers who have escaped many places and just are chilling around trying to have something similar to the golden days. It is interesting because when shit has hit the fan it is the latter than show, once again, what a normal anon looks like in the post-2014 exodus days, the others have no choice than to lurk and understand and by that i mean the passive, classic imageboard education like there used to be long, long time ago. It is also true anon.cafe has more boards than any other, i don't know where people think we have few but it does show users need to check the webring/boards tabs; and to be fair despite their low/no activity the vast majority of boards here have strong topics and themes, other than a couple of very niche ones that could easily fit in other ones, by that i mean there's not a lot of filler ones.

>>14435 Yeah it's smaller than 8kun and 4chan and 8moe and 9whatever and some others, most of them being ones that have open board creation, but most IBs floating around the web have about the same or less boards than this. Anon.cafe is actually pretty decent size in terms of board count.

Can raise the wordfilter limit please?
This and kindly make [code] tags bypass wordfilters.
>>14290 The wordfilter limit has been raised from 20 to 40 per board. >>14381 Not possible, as far as I'm aware. You'll need to request this from LynxChan's project directly, or write an addon that will do it.

Thoughts on adding an oled theme?
I wouldn't mind but isn't Tomorrow dark enough for you?

How is it that anon.cafe is relatively faster to load compared to other imageboards?
Is it?
>>14339 Yes. But I do not know if this is just a me-thing. This is why I am asking to see if others have had the same experience.
>>14340 it is a you thing
>>14341 Very well.

Tripcodes Anonymous 04/21/2021 (Wed) 17:57:38 No.14298 [Reply]
Is it possible to use super secure tripcodes here? I.e tripcodes made with three pound symbols? (###)
3 posts omitted.
because if you're a namefag at least other people can have fun at your expense, as a tripfag you're just annoying, and 99% of times there is no real need to do it in the first place
Describe how a super secure tripcode is more secure than a secure tripcode. Also no and never will be.
>>14308 Point taken. I do not know.
Same thing, OP. It wouldn't change anything even if the three ### system was added. Frankly, it is unecessary and redunant. And lastly, almost nobody uses tripcodes... It's a rare sight to see someone use tripcodes.

Infinity Cup poll Anonymous 04/22/2021 (Thu) 19:29:30 No.14313 [Reply]
Hey guys, /icup/ here with a question on how we're going to handle the next iteration of the Infinity Cup ( https://anon.cafe/icup/ ) We're trying to poll whether certain boards are interested in playing in the cup, or if there's some specific team that you'd like to see play. If you want to, please answer or add your own answer to the poll in https://poal.me/6x3j1u

Cool beans
I don't know whether to laugh or cry that one autist exploded the PPH for the whole imageboard

Why doesn’t anon.cafe have ID on every post like on other IBs?
It's up to BOs to enable or disable it.
>>14296 So there are boards on anon.cafe that have IDs enabled?
>>14300 I see... Thank you, Anon.

Considering Fatchan's jschan Anonymous 05/02/2020 (Sat) 09:14:24 No.10737 [Reply]
LynxChan had its advantages, but during the short time that Fatchan was up I saw some things I really liked. It also seems to have garnered good reviews from those anons who posted on it. The questions I'm now asking are: >Is jschan suitable for use yet? jschan's repository README contains a warning that it isn't production-ready. Development is likely to be wilder, upgrades rockier, and behavioral edges less well-understood. I recall that Fatchan also had its share of attacks and the countermeasures seemed to strike a nice balance between being effective and preserving anon quality of life. >How expensive is jschan to run? By "expensive" I mean how CPU intensive, how memory-intensive, and how disk-intensive is it compared to LynxChan? Only someone with experience running both would be able to comment, but we can hope such a person exists. >What options exist to migrate content from LynxChan to jschan? A supported migration path is essential; direct database-to-database transfer would be ideal. Has anyone else migrated content from a LynxChan instance to a jschan instance and if so, how did it go? >Will jschan continue to be developed and for how long? Tom has said that he plans to keep actively developing jschan but given his recent force-feeding of blackpills I'd like to know his thoughts on how long he'll be committing to the software as its maintainer. Open-source projects can in theory be taken over if the original maintainer abandons them but this transition only sometimes goes well. I also see no pull requests having been made on jschan so I don't know how Tom runs his ship compared to, say, Stephen Lynx. >What do our board owners think of switching to jschan? Our board owners love their custom CSS; switching over to jschan is likely to mean they need to adjust their CSS yet again in a more radical way than a normal LynxChan upgrade.

>>14263 Banners are still set to a hard 300:100, though I mentioned this to Tom and he said he'd remove the limit, but it hasn't happened yet. I can't think of anything else to show, but if you think of something I'll screenshot it for you. I can only show what is allowed for a BO. Not a mod anywhere, nor an admin. Hope this information is useful.
>>14264 They aren't.

How to join your webring ? Anonymous 03/09/2021 (Tue) 18:23:38 No.14183 [Reply]
Hi ! I'm working on a board website and I would like to know how to join the webring. I use websites that are part of the webring including anon.cafe quite often and would love to see my website in it.
(Disclaimer: I am not a dev or admin) Hi! It will help to know what imageboard software you are using (e.g. vichan, lynxchan, other, custom). Some of them have pre-made webring code which would make it easier.
>>14183 To join the webring, you must do three things: >Have your site serve a compatible webring.json file that is kept up to date. >Have your site consume other sites' webring.json files (using both the 'following' and 'known' fields) and present their board data properly and in full. >Convince one of the sites already in the webring to add you to their following list. If you run LynxChan, jschan, or a Vichan derivative then existing webring plugins are available that will do the first two things for you. LynxChan-compatible one is available from https://gitlab.com/alogware/LynxChanAddon-Webring, the Vichan-derived one is available from https://gitlab.com/Tenicu/infinityaddon-webring and I don't know where the jschan-compatible one is from. The two aforementioned repos also document the webring.json schema.
I use lynxchan so that should be great. I’ll tell you when the site is finished
