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.

>>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

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.

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.
