General to do list mys_elf Board owner 06/29/2021 (Tue) 19:33:43 Id:965149 No. 5 [Reply] [Last]
A list of things that I will (probably) do at some point or another. In no strict order: >Add support to Clover/possibly Kuroba I have absolutely no experience with Android development, so if (you) do it would be nice if you let me know in thread. Might have some questions for you. In general I am looking at modifying a copy of the vichan code to do this. Both vichan and Lynxchan use .json APIs, so hopefully that shouldn't be too difficult to convert. Since Lynxchan doesn't return an index.json, probably won't get the non-catalog view to work perfectly right. Main problem I foresee is with captcha as that's likely going to take a bit more to figure out. The site should only require captcha if it gets a certain number of PPH, but it is important for the app to support it. Have only just started poking around with things, so development is still early yet on this. >Improve the gallery view >Investigate the possibility of catalog mode in the overboard >Add warn/ban reason editable dropdown >Possibly integrate >>114 >(you)s on backlinks >Thread stats in page -Addon needed, IP count will be in 2.8.x at the least.

Tools and scripts mys_elf Board owner 06/29/2021 (Tue) 02:17:18 Id:2dfb77 No. 4 [Reply] [Last]
Some tools and scripts that pertain to the site. >(you) persist userscript. https://gitgud.io/mys_elf/nhnb-you-persist For when you don't like to store browser data but would like to preserve your (you)s. Not totally happy with the operation of it, but it works well enough for now. Will update at some point in the future. >Private Boards addon https://gitgud.io/mys_elf/Private-Boards An addon to require login on certain boards. >PenMod https://gitgud.io/mys_elf/PenMod The frontend for this site. Uncreative name included. >Lynxscripts https://gitgud.io/mys_elf/lynxscripts A couple of scripts contained here. archiveLimiter.py can prune the archive to a set number of threads. fileLimiter.py will prune the oldest images first to keep disk space usage within a set amount. Useful when operating on limited disk space. autoLynx.sh is a shell script to automatically set up a Lynxchan instance. Useful for setting up a testing environment.

Just came across this: https://gitgud.io/Codexx/channel_changer Appears to be a chan scraper supporting multiple softwares (including LynxChan) with the ability to import into your own LynxChan instance. I haven't tried it yet but it sure looks cool.

Spam-B-Gone Anonymous 12/23/2021 (Thu) 05:27:40 Id:fed218 No. 313 [Reply]
Just a quick thought regarding the regular spam/ad bots... Since they all seem to be Chinese, wouldn't it just be practical to rangeban that region for now? I kind of doubt that we have any genuine regular Chinese visitors that would be affected at the moment, considering how obscure this place still is. Of course, that's just me assuming these are actually coming from China. For all I know it could be US based spam, or India, or somewhere in Europe or any other place.

>>316 Death to chinkbots!
>>316 >rangeban enables captcha This is a really elegant initial solution, I like it. It will be interesting to see how much that cuts down on the spam over the next month or so. I agree that it's very nice to not have any captcha to post. It'll probably become necessary at some point if this sites popularity ever happens to take off, but until then it's good to keep the captcha-free luxury rolling as long as possible.

On a different note, just noticed that I'm glowing ^:) ID: fed218
Another observation and potential suggestion. I've noticed nearly all of the spambots include a lot of junk in the name and subject fields. What about something like this? If the combined total amount of characters in the name and subject fields exceeds a set number, like 20, captcha is required.
>>337 I haven't really noticed anything that could be used to consistently identify the spambot, and adding a captcha like that would likely not be super straightforward. I will say that the more aggressive rangebans we've been doing do seem to be making a noticeable difference. I think as long as we keep it up, things will continue to improve.

Saging Anonymous 11/08/2021 (Mon) 18:17:49 Id:d80928 No. 308 [Reply]
How do you sage on this image board? Can you sage at all? If you do does it always show that you saged? There's times when a discussion is going on but it's not relevant to the threads OP so I want to sage.
>>308 Type "sage" in the email field.
>>308 Saging is gay and so are you.

>>305 Looks like it was just a warn: https://nhnb.org/.global/logs/fim/2021-10-26.html The staff member just forgot to change the default ban text.

>>306 So he posted anthro, what a fag. I tried searching the logs before making this thread but opened the ones on the footer which aren't very descriptive. https://nhnb.org/.global/logs/.global/2021-10-26.html The board specific ones are kind of hidden away, the icon doesn't even appear inside threads, only in the index and catalog.

Am I allowed to love Starlight? Anonymous 08/13/2021 (Fri) 02:10:06 Id:2670ed No. 158 [Reply] [Last]
I'm a bit of an anachronistic sort. My favorite season is the first. My favorite episode is Cutie Mark Chronicles. My waifu is Glim Glam. I am not one of the spammy shiteaters. In fact 4cuck has me on a 60 day for trashing barbie. I love pony for horses and nothing else.

>>164 To this day I’ve gotten permabanned three times on 4chan, twice was criticizing janitors and moderators or putting out information that calls them out. Another time was for posting pony on /v/ back in 2018. Mods are fags.

/mlp/‘s alt site thread was debating this so I thought I’d bring it straight to the jannies to finally answer. Clearly Sunset is banned even in her cameo from The Last Problem but are the Sirens from Shadow Play that the Pillars fight banned as well?

The Shimmernigger literally cried to his general on 4chan over this argument. And they say EQG fans arent complete cancer.
>>255 Kek
>>255 They said they don't care though, because Shimfag is so much of a faggot even they cannot sand him.
I've said I don't personally mind pony Sunset, but I see the wisdom in a blanket ban as the barbiefags attempt a nose under the tent strategy.
Hoh missed this shitfest You made the right call board owner
