If you notice something wrong that isn't "it's slow", post about it here. If something is fixed or changed, it'll be posted here.
>>14212 some web servers have a timeout to close long-running connections, is your upload speed particularly slow?
>>14215 >upload speed It fluxes from 2.2 to 0.8mb usually.
>>14216 pretty slow, best to ask anon admin if there is a timeout

>>14197 Well, this is what happened. More to come or so it seems.
>>14218 Haha holy shit how the fuck can they talk about cakekike being the 8/v/ BO and then show cuckchan's /v/ board. Good to see the documentary has been researched.
>>14219 They obviously (((chose))) him for the role b/c he's an absolutely disgusting, repellent retard. It serves their basic optics. cuck/v is loaded with trannies & stronk, independynts as per the plan. That wouldn't serve their purposes. My guess is that eventually they'll call every one of them LE EBIL WHITE NAHDZEES regardless of cakefat very obviously being a jew.

>>14212 >>14215 I throttled my connection down to the speed of a 2G connection and uploaded >>14226 to test whether this was a timeout issue. It took 43.72 minutes to upload and still successfully posted. We'll try a couple of other attempts to reproduce the problem.

Testing timeout under other conditions.
>>14229 That was also a slowed-down upload made while the site's database was being backed up to a remote server. Whatever is causing the problems that >>14212 is experiencing, it doesn't seem to be slow upload. If their connection is unreliable or otherwise drops enough packets, that might explain why the connections seem to fail regularly.
>>14229 Kek, I enjoyed that one.
>>14221 Anon.cafe has been blocked by many ISPs for adult content too. Not that it really matters because who barebacks the internet these days?
>>14230 Okay. I seem to have narrowed it down. It's a combination of the cafe being slow (backup maybe) and some issues on my physical cable (seems like upstream SNR ratio is very poor in this entire area (my region) due to a node being down recently. Not sure why other sites weren't being affected. >video partially related
FIX IT
>>14241 Relax. They or their server vendor is obviously under attack r/n. The Anoncafe Admins have always been forthright with everyone thus far. Just be patient lad.

>>14241 We can't know what to fix if you don't use your words to tell us what's wrong. Everything's looking healthy to us. >>14242 We're not aware of any attacks in progress at the moment, unless you count somebody scraping all of our boards through our Tor endpoint as an attack.
>>14243 >unless you count somebody scraping all of our boards through our Tor endpoint as an attack. No not at all. If you look across the different boards, for the past 48hr+ a boatload of us have been receiving 'connection lost' type errors when posting. Double-posting has been common. I've generally been unable to post files most of the time.

>>14173 >>14172 >>14171 >>14170 After paying attention to download rates, I've determined that I can only download at 20kbps while on /k/. On /comfy/ and /meta/ I do not have this issue. When I specifically run speed tests while opening or uploading large files on any of the three boards I get a standard result of my ISP throttling to half speed, but half speed should be 10x that rate at 20mbps. That being said, I have found that I have latencies of about 25 seconds yes, seconds, not milliseconds on other anon.cafe boards, while I have latencies as high as 70-80 seconds while browsing or posting on /k/ specifically. That's extremely high. As a comparison with another webring board, when I browse Smug I have a latency of about 1-2 seconds on average. Obviously I expect Smug to be lower since they run American servers and I am in America, however I feel like 70-80 seconds (compared to the 25 seconds on any other board on the website) is extremely slow. In comparison, when I try to ping servers in Roma Italy or Helsinki Finland, I have latencies of about 2 seconds on average, as a baseline comparison. As a third comparison, I tested my latency over tor from a handful of relays, and found I had an average latency of about 2.5-3.5 seconds accessing /k/. This means it is faster to browse and upload/download files over tor than it is to browse /k/ on my bareback IP. So I suppose if it's not an issue on anon.cafe's end, that would implicitly mean I'm either being monitored by the feds while visiting anon.cafe/k, not that I really give a shit, or my ISP is specifically throttling anon.cafe/k specifically (which seems unlikely since they'd just throttle the whole website if they were going to throttle it). I would like to believe it is an issue on anon.cafe's end somehow obviously, but I am doubtful. Recent file uploads in case it might help with troubleshooting. https://anon.cafe/.media/7cdda1a75c1a0618d392026de8a2e4a87d6b0295401ba59d88d9cfa3b55b479d.mp4 https://anon.cafe/.media/f4a01c0fa0a160475e7d80074a5e9e1963bcfea7ecad3dbe1bd6117faa91331b.jpg

>>14245 Ah right, it's at the point now where files over 500kb won't even upload to /k/ any more for me.
>>14245 >>14246 >I would like to believe it is an issue on anon.cafe's end somehow obviously, but I am doubtful. Given what you've posted, we agree with you. >I've determined that I can only download at 20kbps while on /k/. On /comfy/ and /meta/ I do not have this issue. That's definitely abnormal. The slowest we've ever seen it over a congested VPN link is 200kB/s (around 204800kb/s). Testing from here shows no difference in speed between downloading files from /k/ and downloading files from any other board. >I have latencies of about 25 seconds yes, seconds, not milliseconds on other anon.cafe boards, while I have latencies as high as 70-80 seconds while browsing or posting on /k/ specifically. That's even more abnormal. For comparison, we get about 300ms ping latency over a congested VPN link. When you say "latencies", what exactly do you mean? Ping? Time from HTTP request to first response packet? Time from HTTP request to last response packet? For comparison, we see HTTP waiting times (request to first response packet) on the base board document request of about 600ms over VPN, with no difference between boards. (We consider this slow and are going to be changing some things behind the scenes to try and speed things up.) We get about 1000ms when doing the same over Tor (with Tor running through VPN connection). >it's at the point now where files over 500kb won't even upload to /k/ any more for me. We're seeing files coming through from others without issue, many of sizes much greater than that. >So I suppose if it's not an issue on anon.cafe's end, that would implicitly mean I'm either being monitored by the feds while visiting anon.cafe/k, not that I really give a shit, or my ISP is specifically throttling anon.cafe/k specifically (which seems unlikely since they'd just throttle the whole website if they were going to throttle it). Monitoring an individual's traffic in a way that creates delays of that magnitude would be quite incompetent. This is not to say your traffic isn't being inspected, just that if it is it's being done by the signals desk of the Keystone Cops. I assume you've tested this repeatedly to be sure that the differences in timing between boards are not coincidence. HTTPS requests conceal the requested path, so unless your HTTPS stream is being decrypted then there should be no way for a listener to know which board you are requesting. You might consider thoroughly comparing the HTTPS certificate fingerprint you get when accessing the https://anon.cafe address via Tor and via the link you suspect is being monitored. (We see SHA-256 17 D0 A7 9D 74 E8 F6 E5 F1 69 0F 89 84 BE 16 5E 66 3E 05 64 43 86 FF 2F 37 9C D0 55 53 2B 6D 72; future readers note that this changes with each Let's Encrypt renewal so don't freak out if it's different for you after some time.) If the fingerprint you get when hitting the HTTPS endpoint (not onion endpoint) via Tor is different from that you see with the normal method, then your HTTPS traffic is being MITM'd. If it's the same then you might still be getting MITM'd, but not using spoofed certificates, or you might be getting MITM'd so hard that onion routing itself has been compromised and turned against you. It's also possible that one of the networks between you and Anon.cafe is throttling traffic to our IP, our subnet, our ASN, or something else.
>>14247 I'm not very good with computers, so please excuse me. >Latencies I believe I'm referring to ping since it's in the 100-300ms range for other websites (even less for major ones) which seems normal for a ping, but ridiculously high for anon.cafe. I tried to ignore page load timers since those can be affected by outside factors. The HTML/web page of anon.cafe loads in the short 100-300ms ranges, it's just the media part that seems to refuse to load period. That's the joy of using an app to check since I don't know how to ping anything except IPs, so maybe I'm doing something wrong. As you mentioned, I've been testing this a few times at different points in the day to make sure it's not a fluke. >SHA256 fingerprint While I can locate this through tor (and it matches to the one you posted), I seem to be unable to locate this through my browser (I'm a pleb and use Chrome, right now that seems like an unrelated issue though). The SHA-1 certificates match though from accessing through a standard browser and accessing through tor: 026bccf4da2f9479ab3d3e833a6ebb8780498202 026bccf4da2f9479ab3d3e833a6ebb8780498202 This also matches up to my phone browser over 4G which does give me the SHA-256 fingerprint that's the same as yours, just as a control to make sure. I'm not sure if it matters but the R3 SHA-1 cert is: 48504e974c0dac5b5cd476c8202274b24c8c7172 And both are under the DST Root CA X3 certificate. That's how it's supposed to be, right? >It's also possible that one of the networks between you and Anon.cafe is throttling traffic to our IP, our subnet, our ASN, or something else. I'm starting to wonder since it makes no sense that tor accesses it just fine and my phone does fairly well with accessing it over 4G, but my bareback IP over my ISP can't without running into issues. Is there any step I could take for that like changing which DNS I go through that might help?
>>14248 Oh wow. I changed my DNS anyways from "use default" to using Jewgle's DNS and now it has a latency of 0.25 seconds and my speeds are no longer being throttled either. I swear to Christ I had this issue on my old computer that was using Jewgle's DNS servers though.
>>14249 Google saves the day again.
>>14247 >just that if it is it's being done by the signals desk of the Keystone Cops. Kekd. It's pretty obvious that the current USSA 'Administrations' insistence on loading up their intelligence agencies with mentally-deranged trannys, stronk, independynts, and Black and Brown Bodies means they are going to have a lot of basic, fundamental, competency issues. I would guess a similar thing is going on r/n in the EU, but the Bolsheviks are by far the worst at violating privacy. Actually, we can consider this a real blessing whenever White men abandon these agencies -- hopefully in droves. It certainly affords better protections for the average Joe Anon out there -- and even for the normalniggers too. >>14250 Heh, what could possibly (((go wrong)))?
>>14249 >dns change Please tell me you weren't using ISP default DNS.
>>14252 It's a new computer (only been using it for a month or so) and I completely spaced out on changing my DNS.
Captcha is always refusing after typing a post unless I reload the page. When I reload the page, it gives me captchas I've already solved (but they still work). Connected to wifi, if that matters.

>>14207 I have been getting this issue for a while now but assumed it was just on my end. Trying to attatch more than 1 image usually results in "connection failed" though sometimes the text will post but the files aren't attatched. Also when the text-only posts go through I can't delete them because they aren't recognised as posts I made (i.e. no (you)s)
>>14253 Remember to set a fallback! >>14272 >Also when the text-only posts go through I can't delete them because they aren't recognised as posts I made (i.e. no (you)s) I'm noticing no default post password in the password field, Javascript on, but was able to delete. Do you have special settings like no cookies? I've had attachment issues usually with large files and slow internet, but it's probably a different issue to yours. >>14251 wrong board schizo
>>14274 >wrong board schizo Apparently you both haven't a good sense of context recognition, and also don't understand what the term 'meta' actually means. You might want to work on those, friend.
>>14274 >wrong board schizo Nah, wrong website. We don't even have a board for that nonsense any more.
>>14276 So, which part of being consciously awake to a threat to your entire lifestyle, very likely potentially lethal to your own life and that of your family is 'nonsense' friend? I suppose you would send children out to play in the middle of the Interstate highway b/c lol traffic deaths nonsense? Marxism has shoved more souls into the hole than any other single evil in history. These far left coups and regimes always follow the same playbook -- namely, the one in your news today. This issue isn't some vague delusion by cultitsts, it's an immediate threat in all our faces daily in the West. You wouldn't perhaps be some kind of astroturfing glownigger, now would you?

>>14277 stop derailing the bugs, issues, and changelog thread with hyperreality politics. there are literally dozens of imageboards for you to post about that in.
>Attribution for geolocated flags has been added to the attributions page. Do any boards use this yet? >>14278 This.
>>14278 I didn't begin this conversation, the site Admin did, and in context, to legitimate concerns about bad guys (aka glowniggers, leftists, et al) attacking the site. As with any conversation it both developed from there, and as common, has multiple viewpoints. >>14247 One can easily argue that whining and ridiculing an honest evaluation of a potential answer to what appears to many of us as an attack on the site is the actual derailing. Stop being a faggot about it and provide a better answer then. It's well known the Communist usurpers currently running the USSA regime have both greatly expanded the intelligence and other agencies' budgets and charged them with running to the ground all dem ebil White nahdzee hives. For example, every single imageboard ever (excepting trannychan ofc, and maybe one or two others). 2 + 2 still equal 4, regardless of how often we may be told it equals 5. If it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, if it waddles like a duck -- then it's a glownigger duck.
>>14279 Yep, >>>/lang/ ! >>14280 >Admin started it Admin said an attack that delays your connection like that would be comically incompetent, therefore it's very unlikely that their issue was caused by feds and was probably something else instead. Then you wrote an off-topic rant about the white man, communists, transgenders, feminists and jews. That is called derailing. Go do that on a 'politically incorrect' board. >Stop being a faggot about it and provide a better answer then. No need to. Admin already gave a sane response. It didn't quack, it didn't waddle, and it didn't look like a glownigger. Stop being a Stormfag and go back to 4chan.

Entering the captcha fails for me the first time and a second window with the identical captcha pops up and fails even though its identical. I also tried it on a phone I don't phonepost but I needed to see if it was a net issue,. pls no bully and I cannot post from a phone at all, is this intended behavior? Also, would the admin clarify what their stance on this proposed EU ruling is? https://apnews.com/article/f9ee6c0fdb1f4cdcb02780115d935671 https://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/EN/ALL/?uri=CELEX:32017L0541 https://www.europarl.europa.eu/news/en/press-room/20210422IPR02621/new-rules-adopted-for-quick-and-smooth-removal-of-terrorist-content-online >The new regulation will target content such as texts, images, sound recordings or videos, including live transmissions, that incite, solicit or contribute to terrorist offences, provide instructions for such offences or solicit people to participate in a terrorist group. In line with the definitions of offences included in the Directive on combating terrorism, it will also cover material that provides guidance on how to make and use explosives, firearms and other weapons for terrorist purposes. >Terrorist content must be removed within one hour >Hosting service providers will have to remove or disable access to flagged terrorist content in all member states within one hour of receiving a removal order from the competent authority. Member states will adopt rules on penalties, the degree of which will take into account the nature of the breach and the size of company responsible. >Protection of educational, artistic, research and journalistic material >Content uploaded for educational, journalistic, artistic or research purposes, or used for awareness-raising purposes, will not be considered terrorist content under these new rules. >No general obligation to monitor or filter content >Internet platforms will not have a general obligation to monitor or filter content. However, when competent national authorities have established a hosting service provider is exposed to terrorist content, the company will have to take specific measures to prevent its propagation. [...] >The Regulation will enter into force on the twentieth day following publication in the Official Journal. It will start applying 12 months after its entry into force.
>>14344 >Also, would the admin clarify what their stance on this proposed EU ruling is? There is no stance to take; we comply with Romanian law, including whatever it eventually becomes in response to this Directive. That said, the directive imposes no general obligation to monitor or filter content, and only to automatically prevent its propagation if national authorities have determined the platform is "exposed" to it. Exactly what this will mean is up to Romanian authorities in adopting the directive, so we shall have to see exactly what the law becomes.

I've been trying to post. This captcha says "4b887b" doesn't it? So why is it incorrect?
>>14848 The quick reply captcha has been broken for weeks, you can only use the one in the replying box at the top of the page.

Where did the option to archive threads go?
nvm found it
