Bugs, Issues, and Changelog, #2 Anonymous Board owner 10/21/2021 (Thu) 06:34:30 No.15218
This is the second thread in which you post about things you notice that are wrong that aren't "it's slow". If something is fixed or changed, it'll be posted here. Previous thread: >>18
>>15520 thankyou.
>>15520 One more question. are the posts of boards that have activated post id that does not have post id, are they BO or mods?
>>15522 On boards with post IDs enabled, those without an ID are either using the onion relay, or they are from before IDs were enabled since the feature does not reveal prior history to users.
I noticed that a specific node of mullvad VPN had been banned that I mentioned in the appeal but will not expand on further. I believe this to be a specific and targeted attack on that node but I have no proof on the matter. I have since changed to a new "standard node" for consistency, but I would still request that said node be unbanned in a few weeks' time since that is the node with the highest fidelity for me and the spammer should go away in due time justifying the node's unbanning.

>>15551 Anon I have regularly used that node to post on anon.cafe for the last six or seven months. As I said I have moved to a different node. That one was the best one for streams because of fidelity, however it's not as if it's a great loss if I have to use a different one.
>>15550 We don't publicly comment on particular bans, but we would like to thank you for wording your ban appeal so politely.

I don't know what happened, but I thought I should report it anyways just in case there's something I should check in the background that I don't know about. It sounds like a creepypasta but I don't know what the fuck happened. While typing out a response on /k/ earlier, my phone screen suddenly locked up and started glitching out, returning to a previous point in my typing. It let me finish typing the post and post it after a captcha, but it periodically would lock up and go back to that midway point when it first started glitching. After submitting my post I closed out of Brave and closed the tab containing /k/ upon reopening Brave. Then, randomly roughly 15 minutes later while reading a book in a different Brave tab, the screen locked up and displayed the /k/ thread again in the exact same place despite being on a different page. Even the URL changed to show anon.cafe even though I had closed the tab. I promptly killswitched my internet, disconnected from my VPN located in Sweden, and reconnected from a Slovakian node that I intend to also swap as soon as this post is posted. It could have been a cache/memory bug, but I have memory to spare and this incident legitimately has me spooked to the point where I don't want my VPN connected anywhere in Europe just in case. If there is anything I should check out in the event of it happening again, please inform me.
>>15619 We're not aware of any issues affecting our authoritative DNS entries, though it's possible that OpenDNS isn't faithfully forwarding our records for some reason. Very strange. >>15621 That's spooky, although it doesn't sound like anything that would come from Anon.cafe's site itself. Having a browser's tabs switch without user input would be some combination of user error, a fault in your browser software, or some fault/malicious activity in your phone itself.
The /k/ admin is being a fucking faggot again.
>>15624 lol he deleted my comment calling him a real peach too, hilarious. Guy needs to be reigned in. A simple question about what happened to 16chan, a board which has a /k/ as well, should not provoke such a womanly response from him. Do pray tell, is he Indian or Anglo, his FAFO rule is overly vague which seems like an Angloid thing to impose. Regardless low testosterone is in play there.
>>15625 i am a 16chan "oldfag" and saw those posts on cafe/k/ you're referencing while floating around shipwrecked. have to say i may not visit for long if that is the kind of moderation i can expect.
>>15624 I responded to you in the meta thread. I responded to you as anon at first suggesting to use the right thread and your response amounted to "lol can't be bothered" so why should I be bothered to let you run about treating the board like /b/ shitting where you eat? Besides, site owner already discussed this with you back in April (yes, your ban record goes back to April still, I don't hold that against anon until he acts like a cunt). >>15626 I'd take boomer fudds who get prissy over the word nigger over a rapefugee who can't learn to keep meta questions to the meta thread, QTDDTOT thread, or /k/anteen and out of the fucking Ukraine war thread. Bye, Felicia.
>>15625 I don't think I issued a single ban for the entire month of June (maybe May too) that wasn't for spam, so clearly the problem is (You).
>>15627 One petty, emotional response followed by another. >Bye, Felicia. Disgusting.

>16chan crybabies who have no respect for other communities leave anon.cafe and smug again Comfy.
>>15628 No the problem is you putting your gay little redtext edits in my posts and outright deleting others. Dilate
>>15636 >Gay little redtext edits I don't edit other posters' posts, my dude. Period. If you are referring to ban messages, then how new are you? >And outright deleting others There's a time and place for ban messages and a time and place for deleting egregious posts to make a point and not allow shit-stirrers to drag others into a conflict. >Dilate Grow up instead of losing your shit over a warning ban. If I actually wanted you gone I'd ASN permaban your ass like I do to spammers.
>be me >leave for two days because posters were mad i didn't do my job >board improves in less than one day >day two, board is still improving >get bored after gay orgy so decided to come back >post my nudes for all to see >not clean up all the bait and slide threads scattered around the board >go get food(semen) >come back to see a bunch of niggers (hot) fucking me all over the place Im left with two options in this case, either leave dicks alone and discontinue to allow nigger dick to exist in my ass or just ban everybody i suspect of being a homophobe. Consider this a warning. if you have a gripe with my sexuality then bring it to my attention in a constructive way otherwise deal with the consequences of your poor decisions.
Please clean up /islam/, it's full of CP links
There's something with with a ban on /k/: >>>/k/38904 I was posting bareback, so it's not just two anons on the same VPN node, and I'm the only one on my local network. Some metaposter in a thread I never opened got banned, and I'm getting blocked by the ban too. Supposedly it should only apply to the captcha bypass ID, but evidently that's not working properly.
>>15840 >Tied to the captcha bypass ID The two posts were under the exact same post history with the exact same bypass ID when a range ban was issued, if that assists in identifying the alleged problem.
>>15841 >were under the exact same post history For what it's worth, my public ID, as opposed to the back-end one, from the connection caught by the ban has stayed the same through the entire current Ukraine thread (6a95cc), and there have been no posts I can see with that ID that are not mine. Likewise in the ww3g thread.
>>15842 Yes, that was the one the original ban was issued based on (why it was an 8 hour ban instead of the default 3 day ban usually used). I usually screencap but this was a rare exception where I was phone-moderating so I failed to do so. Intent is to swap from ASN bans to 1/2 octet bans where the alleged issue should not arise again. Should it do so, email me.
>>15843 >the original ... 8 hour ban Wait, so the week long one wasn't the only one "I" got? The most recent post I made, and the only one I made today, was >>>/k/38883 and nothing after that until I saw the week long ban message (the first anon.cafe ban message I've seen, hence my confusion over its format). That was less than 8 hours ago, so I'm not sure where the 8 hour ban fits in.
Is there a way to stop the CP poster from spamming every single board?
Is there anything the Global Mods to help the BO of /christian/. A certain schizo is spamming /christian/ with CP, death threats and general advocacy of real-life violence.
>>15851 The spammer in question leaves nothing that our countermeasures can presently use to identify them. Afraid that for now it's a matter of deleting and banning them when they show up, as always. Please continue to globally report CP spam and other global rule-breaking posts as usual. >>15856 We delete global rule-breaking posts if and when we spot them, but we can't read every post on Anon.cafe and we’re not a substitute for a board’s owner and volunteers. Please submit global reports for posts that break the global rules, and encourage your Board Owner and volunteers to be vigilant as well.
Jannies sitting idly by while /Christian/ gets raided.... again

When clicking on Board Rules (below the New Reply field) while you're in a thread you've got a 404 not found page instead of viewing the board rules.
>>15872 Confirmed; we can reproduce the problem. It happens because the board rule link points to rules.html at the same level as the current page, which in a thread includes res/, where the rules page isn't. Thank you for reporting. The fix would be to change that link in the template so that it points to /boardname/rules.html. Unfortunately, a quick look at LynxChan's templating docs suggests that we can't do that because that template's only access to the board name seems to be through a template item that generates HTML for a hidden input field. Why not include the hidden input field in the template itself and only substitute in the board name, given it's the part of the final page's markup that actually changes, rather than having LynxChan itself generate more HTML somewhere else and drop it into the HTML template? Only StephenLynx can say for sure. Apologies; can't fix.>>15872
I am a board owner, and I am unable to bumplock a post anymore, or un-bumplock existing locked posts. Is this a known issue? This feature is useful for ordering sticky posts.
>>15874 LynxChan doesn't provide the means for threads to be manually bumplocked or un-bumplocked. You can only use moderation tools to lock threads, pin them, or make them cyclic.
>>15868 >implying that's not what the /christian/ board owners and jannies want abandon ship, bro
Noticing something in the webring interface. The name of my board (L'entremonde) is spelled L'Entremonde. Is this something that can be fixed ? For the moment as a fallback mesure I juste renamed it Entremonde.
>>15218 Why is there yet another influx of retards raiding the webring rendering all the boards unusable? Board Staff needs to crack down on that weaponized autism shit.
This isn't a bug, or an issue on my end, just something interesting. When I post on /k/ my flag is Belgian for some reason. not using a vpn/proxy/tor. I am just barebacking it.
>>15885 I forgot to ask my question how this site getting the flags? clearly isn't from my IP
>>15883 This behavior comes from the Xanderlynx frontend by Robi Pires, so any fix would have to come from or be submitted upstream. We presently haven't the time to do that ourselves, but please feel free to let us know if a fix comes from elsewhere. >>15885 >>15886 Location flags do come from IP, as provided by the GeoLite2 database by MaxMind, which LynxChan downloads and then locally looks up. Which IP addresses correspond to which locations changes as different IP blocks get traded, reassigned, and so on, so the database needs to be updated regularly. However, MaxMind changed things so that the GeoLite2 database can only be downloaded if you have an account with them, and they do not permit account registration from VPNs, Tor, or using anonymous email providers, so we can't safely register an account. As such, our IP-to-location data is quite old, so it will probably give inaccurate flags some of the time. If someone to provides us a MaxMind GeoLite2 download key that we can use, then the data could be updated. Nobody was using flags until now, so the issue hasn't come up.
>>15627 ib are about free speech, you are antithetical to that. Remove the block bypass btw, shouldnt have to do 2 rekiketchas just to post.
>>15883 If somebody encounter this problem here's a workaround : Use [code]U+2019 ’ RIGHT SINGLE QUOTATION MARK[/code] in place of [code]U+0027 ' APOSTROPHE[/code] in board's name.

>>15891 Could you please enable [code] markdown on /meta/ as it's a board used to talk about technical issues and anon are more likely to share code snippets here. Just a suggestion.
There are two CP spam posts on /k/, please remove those
how often is /k/ backed up
