Requesting Boards Anonymous Board owner 09/01/2019 (Sun) 02:54:24 No.3 [Reply] [Last]
Self-service board creation is disabled. Anon.cafe doesn't grant boards to anyone who asks, but perhaps we'd like to host your board. Broadly, we'll consider boards that aren't duplicated elsewhere on the webring but we weigh up a variety of factors. Being comfy is a plus! But, in the end it comes down to our private decision. Please review the Global Rules before you request a board. Please also be certain that you are willing to carry out the duties of a board owner. Boards whose owners do not log in for more than two weeks will be marked inactive and put up for claim. Boards that remain dead for an extended period and/or demonstrate a failure to thrive may be deleted. If you'd like to run a board on anon.cafe, please create an account and then post in this thread with: >The username you created >Board URL (e.g. /meta/) >Board name >Board topic >Would you like the board marked SFW (i.e. no explicit or other adult-only content, even behind spoilers)? >Is your board brand new, or a re-creation of a board from the past? >Do you have posters already eager to post on your new board, or are you hoping to attract them after it is created? If the latter, where do you expect to draw them from? >Does your board substantially duplicate or overlap with any other board on the webring? If so, what is so different about your board that you want to make another one? Please specify if you are requesting a board for use as a "bunker", which is a board that will remain inactive and only be used in case your main board hosted elsewhere becomes unavailable. We request that bunker boards remain delisted from the board list and top boards so that we do not pollute the webring with many inactive duplicates of boards. To delist your board, go to Board Management > Settings, check the "Don't index on top boards and board list" box, and click Save. Delisted boards can still be read and posted on, so you can still distribute your new bunker's address to your anons. If your main board becomes inaccessible or you want to turn your bunker into your main board, feel free to relist it by unchecking the aforementioned "Don't index on top boards and board list" box and clicking Save. Please note that because delisted boards can still be posted on, their owners are still expected to log in regularly and clear them of spam or rule-breaking content and that delisted boards whose owners do not log in for some time will still go up for claim as normal. If you keep your bunker clear of spam and rule-breaking content, it will remain unlocked so that posts can be made at any time. If spam or rule-breaking content accumulates, the board will be administratively locked and will only be unlocked by request. By the time we see an unlock request and act on it, your anons may already have been unable to use the bunker for some time. A tidy bunker is a ready bunker.

Internet Radio on the Anon.cafe Broadcasting System Anonymous Board owner 10/03/2021 (Sun) 16:45:28 No.15187 [Reply]
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? We'll confirm with the board owner(s) before issuing you a streamer account. Once you have a streamer account, you may use it at will.

>>15533 I found why, MIXXX shutsdown pulseaudio when using ALSA. https://manual.mixxx.org/2.1/en/chapters/preferences.html >Most modern GNU/Linux distributions use PulseAudio by default. When launched from a GUI menu entry or icon, Mixxx suspends PulseAudio while it is running so that Mixxx can use ALSA directly.
>>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

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.

Community Announcements Anonymous Board owner 05/21/2020 (Thu) 16:31:32 No.13261 [Reply] [Last]
Sometimes boards do things and think that it would be nice for other boards to know about it. Every week - assuming there are events - we'll post upcoming events in the global announcement slot as smaller community announcements. If you'd like your event to be added to the rotation, post here with your: >Board >Event name >Event thread >Event date and time (please provide time in UTC at minimum plus whatever other timezones you'd like included) Board owners may suppress community announcements without also hiding all global announcements if they desire by using custom CSS to hide class "community-announcements-board-owners-feel-free-to-hide-this". I've taken the liberty of making /otter/'s Ottercine otter movie night the first event we announce. Good job, /otter/.

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
