We now run LynxChan version 2.2.14. Fixes from the latest version of PenumbraLynx have also been merged to our frontend.
IP address retention is a topic of great interest to privacy-conscious posters. By default, LynxChan retains IP addresses for all posts and uses it to display IP hashes to non-root users until those posts age out or are deleted. There is presently no way I know of to turn off this behavior or force storage of hashed IPs only (feel free to request this from LynxChan upstream), but Anon.cafe's instance will now purge a post's IP address information after the post is three days old. Unfortunately, this means that such posts will no longer display IP hashes to owners or volunteers. This should be long enough to assist volunteer and janitorial duties while still allowing posters peace of mind. Note that backups taken will still contain the unexpired IP address information that was in the database at that point in time, so the information will technically be retained until such time as the backup sets automatically age out and are deleted.
The about page has been updated with board creation and donation information.
The issue where spoilers are visible on front page post snippets (and other formatting marks are visible as plain text) was refused upstream as an "edge case", see https://gitgud.io/LynxChan/LynxChan/issues/25
