externally using webring Anonymous 12/01/2019 (Sun) 09:51:34 No.200 [Reply]
Hi moderator-san.
I wanted to access the webring not from an existing image board but my own computer. I tried to create an html page with webring.js but couldn't success. -button events are not coming-
How can i do it?
I don't have the answer to your particular question anon. However, I'm writing an imageboard porter software and I had thought about solving this very thing before. Julay and Smug are the two Admins who devised it in the first place, and the json format they use is publicly available on the repos. It's what I'm going to use if I move forward with the idea.

The JSON data is at: <https://julay.world/addon.js/webring>. I'm that dolphin autist btw.

I would like to add my site heyuri.cf to the webring, but I don't run lynxchan or vichan. I don't mind implementing it myself but I would love to read something or have a good starting point to help me with it.
Try asking on julay.world/meta
There's more traffic there so you may get an answer.

Typo in the config files caused the web server to not use the automatically-renewed cert. Just goes to show you can cover all the other bases but still miss something.

>people still posted
Hope they checked the thumbprint against their own records.

The fuck is that? Am I being detained?

How to add https://gitlab.com/alogware/LynxChanAddon-Webring

1,Clone this repository to src/be/addons/webring

2,Configure the SITE_URL, WEBRING_SITES and SITE_LOGOS variables at the top of index.js

3,Configure blacklist.txt
4,Add webring to the addons list on LynxChan global settings

After adding the name Webring to "Addons", after restarting LynxChan, Webring did not appear. What is wrong?
Normal when visiting wwww.com/webring.json.

How to add the following content?

"name": "Imageboard", // The imageboard's name.
"url": "https://image.board", // The imageboard's base URL.
"endpoint": "https://image.board/webring.json", // The current endpoint.

// An array of logos you want to be shown for other imageboards' users
// on the webring. Should be a .png or .gif with a maximum size of 300KB.
"logo": [

"following": [ // A list of imageboards that this imageboard is directly following.
"known": [
// A list of imageboards this imageboard pairs with, but doesn't necessarily
// follow directly.
"blacklist": [ // A list of domains that this imageboard will not pair with.

"boards": [
"uri": "a", // The URI of the board.
"title": "Anime & Manga", // The board name/title.
"subtitle": "Discussion about japanese shit", // The board subtitle/description. Optional.
"path": "https://image.board/a/", // The absolute path for the board.

"postsPerHour": 23, // The amount of posts made in the last hour. Optional.
"totalPosts": 1000, // The total amount of posts on the board. Optional.
"uniqueUsers": 20 // The total amount of unique ISPs as reported by the imageboard software. Optional.

"tags": ["a", "b", "c"], // An array of string tags for the board.
"lastPostTimestamp": "1970-01-01T00:00:00Z" // An ISO 8601 specifying the date and time of the newest post on the board.
// ...
Since you're using Lynxchan, you can also contact the creator/maintainer of the Lynxchan version of the webring addon, Julay's administration, on #julayworld on Rizon's IRC. Or the support thread on the meta board of JulayWorld.
To which site are you trying to install the webring?

Site Performance Anonymous Board owner 09/01/2019 (Sun) 03:23:57 No.4 [Reply]
If you have observations about the site's performance and speed from your connection, please post it here. The server has been sized for our initial needs but if need be it can be expanded. Please only complain about the speed if it is slow compared to other sites you visit, so we won't have a false positive from your own connection speed.

Oh yeah. Nice choice of icons. They look pretty comfy.
Oh I'm dumb. logos and logo not icon(s)
>They won't until robi fixes the add-on to list the icons under the icon key instead of icons. Only smug's implementation is correct.
Had a feeling that would be the case. Fixed it here and submitted the one-character merge upstream.

>You mean the pop-up with the logos? I don't think he's published that yet.
It looks like he's published the webring alterations now. There still seem to be some rough edges. We'll adapt it for our own PenumbraLynx fork in due course.

Thank you.
Everything is buttery smooth here on my end. Wish there was a dark theme tho'
The overboard doesn't have a banner, it would look nicer if it had one.

I added flags for the posters to choose from, but I can't seem to enable them? The option to pick a flag when posting isn't showing up.
Which board?

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

Just wondering, what's this site gonna be when 8chan comes back? Will it still be used for anything?

nothing new there
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.

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.

In regards to the coming migration:

Email me on sharedsecrethelp@tuta.io and I'll find your shared secret by using sents emails from the claims email address. Please use the same email you used to send the request to claims@8ch.net. I'll look through sent emails to find yours.

Alternatively look through your email addresses for claims@8ch.net and then email admin@8kun.net. This makes the process much smoother.
Explain yourself. Why would board owners not simply have the same password? This smells like fraud.
It probably is, the slimy little motherfucker.
Just go directly to Ron.
