Bugs, Issues, and Changelog Anonymous Board owner 09/02/2019 (Mon) 15:52:13 No.18
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.
>>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.
>>14277 >>14280 >Signs and symptoms of autism: obsessive focus on a single topic
>>14280 See >>14281 The issue was even resolved before you had a chance to derail the thread. Also >>14266 is still occurring when connected to the website over wifi.
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.
>>14344 >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 can confirm multiple cases of this during the past 4 hours.
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.
>>14850 Not him. So, that's the trick is it? I wonder what changes have been made to the Lynxchan code here that keeps fucking up the captcha? It's not happening like this on other sites in the webring, but it's happened to me several times just today here on Anon.
Where did the option to archive threads go?
nvm found it
>>14850 >>14851 Pretty sure both are broken rn on your first post if your ASN is different >enter captcha >click post >same captcha pops up again >fill in and click post >incorrect captcha >enter captcha again to successfully post. I don't have cookies enabled but if someone wishes they can try
Can you allow uploading .ogg files too?
Does the cafe refuse to post non latin titled files? Testing: The file is:新世紀エヴァVANゲリオン.mp4 size: 5,478 kb

I'm trying to upload a mp4 in /k/, but I can't, even if I put text in the post, it gets posted, but only the text.

Testing upload of an ogg audio file.
>>14367 >>14848 >>14850 >>14851 We cannot reproduce the problem. Both main and quick reply CAPTCHA work for us on multiple browsers. Please provide more detail on your environment so we can reproduce the issue. Note that if the board has per-post captcha active and you don't have a block bypass when you post, you will be challenged first for a block bypass and then your post's CAPTCHA will be rejected (since you already solved it to get your block bypass) and you'll have to solve the new post CAPTCHA. This is not a bug, but rather something LynxChan does normally because... well, you know the rest. We're note sure if the behavior has changed in newer versions of LynxChan. >>14923 We were allowing .ogg file upload, both audio/ogg and video/ogg, but it turns out that the file command identifies ogg audio as application/ogg. We've added application/ogg to the whitelist and confirmed upload of ogg audio works now. >>14995 >>15000 Thank you for properly reporting the issue. It turns out that ffmpeg had forgotten where its libraries were for some reason, and when the thumbnailer fails, LynxChan just goes ahead and posts the rest of the content without any link to the file. We've fixed ffmpeg and confirmed that mp4 thumbnailing works again, so video can again be posted.
>>15007 Great! Thanks.
>>15007 Thanks for at least responding Admin. The CAPTCHA issue seems to have changed back to normal now. But for at least 3 weeks it was a very persistent issue here on Anoncafe, but I wasn't noticing it on other Lynxchan sites. I use your hidden service from Arch Linux and Brave browser (currently Version 1.25.68). BTW, failure to post via the QR box, with the confirmed-correct captcha, just happened again attempting this post the first time. Trying a second time... I can't speak to the file uploading issues, but you only have to look over the overboard to see it was a common complaint across several boards, so it likely wasn't anything board-specific. Care to let us know what version of the software you're using here on this site BTW? From nuJulay's header it seems there's a newer version out (and a bunch of problems with it from my own user's perspective). While you're on the line, are you ever going to consider implementing a warrant canary of some sort here?
>>15009 We have tested on Tor Browser (which uses Firefox as its base), the Chromium derivatives, WebKit browsers, various mobile browsers, etc. > BTW, failure to post via the QR box, with the confirmed-correct captcha, just happened again attempting this post the first time. Trying a second time... This does not provide sufficient detail to let us know exactly what you see going wrong and when. This description of it "failing" the first time but not the second suggests that you are encountering the behavior we described above: >Note that if the board has per-post captcha active and you don't have a block bypass when you post, you will be challenged first for a block bypass and then your post's CAPTCHA will be rejected (since you already solved it to get your block bypass) and you'll have to solve the new post CAPTCHA. This is not a bug, but rather something LynxChan does normally because... well, you know the rest. We're note sure if the behavior has changed in newer versions of LynxChan. Until we receive a sufficiently detailed description of what is experienced, when, and how, there's nothing we can do. >you only have to look over the overboard to see it was a common complaint across several boards, so it likely wasn't anything board-specific. Yes. We did not think it was board-specific, but rather was a problem with the server's copy of ffmpeg, as we describe above. >Care to let us know what version of the software you're using here on this site BTW? You can always see the LynxChan version number in use by looking at the bottom of the site's front page. >While you're on the line, are you ever going to consider implementing a warrant canary of some sort here? No, we are not. Warrant canaries are useful only in certain legal systems and operational circumstances, and only serve to provide a false sense of security otherwise. If you are worried about such things, you should assume that all of Anon.cafe's traffic is being monitored and traced in real time. Anon.cafe and all other webring sites are slow enough that it is trivial to connect any given post to any given source IP by traffic monitoring and timing alone. Assume that our server is compromised and we're run by whatever spook house scares you the most.
>>15007 >video is fixed ok testing same video again. >Per post captcha enabled. Do we have a method of telling if this is enabled or not as a poster and not as a janny/BO/admin?
>>14848 Having the same issue except with the report button. Maybe mods should look into it. One board >comfy has some content that needs to be looked into
We are now back in business and have upgraded to LynxChan 2.5.9. Our frontend, as ever, tracks the kind upstream work of Alogspace's Robi Pires. Although we weren't able to reproduce the issues with the CAPTCHA (or even properly understand what was being reported), we're hopeful that this new version might shake out the mystery problems. If you spot any problems with the new version or frontend, please report them here with screenshots that clearly shows what you think should not be happening, and the steps you took that lead you to the thing that you think should not be happening.
>>15012 >One board >comfy has some content that needs to be looked into Does it.
>>15007 >so video can again be posted. Thanks, everything is working
>>15014 Not right now at least >>15012 >Captchas are exactly 6 (112 if no cookies) characters long. It's not letting me report. /retro/ got hit by spam now
>>15016 >reporting I just tested it and I think GLOBAL reports are broken, board reports still go through.

>>15017 Global reports seem to be coming through. What did you see that suggested that the report didn't go through?
>>15018 For me I keep getting an "invalid captcha error when reporting them. It seems that it returns a failed captcha but is still sending the report. Per chance is the block bypass equirement for this board enabled?
>>15018 Can confirm it's working now. Thank you for that

Hallo there, i wanted to mention that in the board /x/ a meta thread i made to post some of the assets, like the board's logo PNG image, disappeared. Early in the board's life some other threads and posts also puffed out in thin air and while i joked at some point that the board was haunted, there really is some sketchy things going on. Might be some memory problems or something? because i can now confirm 100% it's not users deleting their own posts or images not loading, the threads and posts i made are simply not there anymore.
