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.

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.

Uncontrollable autism Anonymous 02/15/2022 (Tue) 20:08:20 Id:9549c6 No. 352 [Reply] [Last]
Wondering how this board would handle this kind of behavior of just unloading a stream of consciousness that nobody gives a shit about. For an example of what I'm talking about maybe some of you are familiar with a certain autistic retard known as Nigel on /mlpol/. Some unholy mixture of brit and low-functioning autism that thinks everyone must know what he's thinking at all time, never improves his behavior and gaslights with dismissive shit like how people ripping into him are just "haters" It's been said that his behavior has been well documented and even if he didn't use a flag ANY post by him is almost immediately recognized as Nigel because he is that much of an insufferable faggot. To be blunt, the vast majority of his posts are form of littering much a nigger dumping trash out the window on the street, but the mod team of /mlpol/ has decided to do nothing about him aside from small warnings and minor deletion of posts, despite this kind of pollution going on for years and many many complaints, no long term bans happen and no one gets time to breathe because he might use the entire site as a poo shits on the street, instead of where it belongs in the toilet. Now why am I bringing this up? /mlpol/ has a writingimprovement thread much like /mlp/ had a drawingimprovement thread but it's very obvious that everyone is incredibly put off by this autism and the quality of the thread, hell any thread he joins tanks since he made a stake in it. Just going by numbers here he makes up ONE THIRD of the posts in a 600post thread currently up with his dynamic IP and another third of the thread is probably just talking about how much of a faggot he is. Now to the point. While reading this dipshit's posts for years spew offtopic garbage like a sewage pipe on steroids nhnb didn't exist, but now that it does it made me think maybe people might have a better time away from it posting a writefag improvement thread on nhnb. However before I suggest people make the move I want to know what nhnb's stance would be. Would you let him shit up threads when he can't be contained only curtailed? https://mlpol.net/mlpol/299458 To get a glimpse, this is the writefag improvement thread and below are the IDs he used in the thread. Here's just a couple of his most recent posts but they generally all read like this, pushing what is 'on topic' to the point of breaking in half. --------- 35 f4e1903 1 15aea3f 1 fa03a49 6 184c306

>>360 Well I've given enough details and details for Nigel and the only thing would do from here is just see how it goes after talking. I was maybe going to let people know in the thread about trying it go on nhnb for a writefag center, but maybe that time has passed for now. Right now the thread on /mlppol/ is dead due to everyone vacating the autism fuming up the place, no surprise. >>366 No idea what the fuck are you talking about, barely worth a reply but here's a (You)
>>370 What did i do to you that made you mad at me?
>>370 >Right now the thread on /mlppol/ is dead due to everyone vacating the autism fuming up the place, no surprise. This is actually kind of a mischaracterization. Nigel still posts a lot of his autistic garbage in that thread and he's still annoying, but the thread itself is active. It's probably one of the more active threads on /mlpol/ at this point.
>>474 It's too soon to tell. But it seems like he has finally fucked off. Very proud of my role btw.
>>474 How about a little update then? Shit's fucking deserted. There's a grand total of two posters in the writefag thread. A sizable portion of that thread is just OP and Nigel going back and forth with unreadable walls of text. Hope it dies off soon.

Advertising a server. Anonymous 08/06/2023 (Sun) 02:51:35 Id:2ac105 No. 574 [Reply] [Last]
I want to advertise /mlp/'s gmod server here to see if there's anyone interested on it. I'm not sure if this is permitted in the rules so I apologize if I'm breaking any.
6 posts omitted.
>>580 >Or maybe this site has enough players for that Depends on the level of interest really. There are lots of lurkers who don't post much so the site isn't as small as it seems sometimes. If I decided to host it it would be vanilla 1.2.1 because I prefer older versions and I am super familiar with that one. Pluggins and shit just bloat the game and feel clunky. No rules except no hacking, but I don't know how well I could really enforce that. I think people here are nice enough to get along for the most part, and some griefing trolling and rivalry adds spice to the game as far as I see it. If someone straight up logged in with a nuker or something I would have backups. I wouldn't mention the server outside of the NHNB thread and would hope others respect that to keep it small and tight knit, randoms from other sites would start shit have no investment and be too much trouble the way I would host it. I know not everyone who would end up joining will see this post but a show of hands would be good for me to consider if it's worth it. Even just a few players is enough; server hosting is very cheap and this would be quite low maintnenece.
>>581 Or rather a show of hooves
>>581 Sounds good, I'd even help if I can. I mentioned /mlp/ because since this is my first time using this site I thought that it didn't have too many users and I saw people talk about bringing anons from /mlp/ to make this site more active, but it's nice to see that it could be done only with NHNB users. And of course people would have to discuss what would be better (for example some anons prefer a different version than the one you want to use, mods, etc)
>>583 I'd host anything from the alpha vesions to 1.6.2 Where I draw the line is that they changed flower placement so that it's not in the center of the block and made roses into poppies. They also gimped the oceans and caves in that version which makes the world less fun to explore. If we did 1.6.2 it would have the advantage that there are horses for one thing. There would also be more options for technical builds with hoppers, droppers, comparators, and daylight sensors. If we did 1.2.1 we would get a unique world generation that is my personal favorite where the forests look different than any other version because of a bug. I also know a lot of fun glitches for that version like breaking bedrock, duplicating sand and using it to make belt machines which opens up redstone in interesting ways, and cosetically altering blocks to get otherwise unatainable varients. If we did Beta 1.7 we could potentially move the spawn point to the far lands, although the gimick of those wears off after a while and they are a very unwelcoming place.
>>586 Sounds good, I'd suggest to use Nostalgic Tweaks if people don't mid mods. It's a mod that brings a lot of mechanics from old minecraft releases (beta, alpha and even some post release mechanics). I'd also put it with other mods for old world generation or even mods like Mine Little Pony, but that sounds good too.

Spam-B-Gone Anonymous 12/23/2021 (Thu) 05:27:40 Id:fed218 No. 313 [Reply] [Last]
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.

>>399 >I have noticed that the spam bots only go to certain threads, and I think they choose that based on some kind of algorithm. It's probably all automated, seems like once it selects a thread it will always return to it in the future. >Wouldn't it be possible to make a trap thread for the bots that tics off all of the algorithm's thread finding sense and autodeletes all new posts in it? Unlikely. Who really knows what metric it goes by. Likely just whatever comes up in it's search. I will say that the spam situation is a lot better these days. There are times now that we even go multiple days without a single spam post. There has been a slight uptick over the past couple days, they probably got in a new batch of IPs, but once they blow through those we'll likely be back to seeing less and less of them.
>>433 What for?
What's next, you will post actual Rule 0 to illustrate your point, you fucking moron?
>>432 >>433 Why would you want a delay if it's something to be removed? Anyway, you could probably look into https://gitgud.io/LynxChan/LynxChanAddon-AutoBan as a starting point. Be aware that this addon was designed for Lynxchan 2.0 so it may need some updating to work with newer versions.

can we get a bigger file size limit? maybe 15MB?
>>471 It's a balance between file size and number of files. Overall I am happy with the current limits. 4mb for >>>/fim/ and >>>/qa/, 6mb for >>>/clop/. If you are looking to share larger files I would highly recommend smutty.horse.
>>476 The webm thread would be the only ones using a bigger file size limit, and using smutty.horse for most of the files would undoubtedly kill the threads
>>477 Most video files are poorly optimized and could be compressed a lot without a perceptible difference in quality. It's too bad there is no easy to use open source software for making them smaller.
>>478 I typically use the following ffmpeg options to make webms: ffmpeg -i "in.mp4" -c:v libvpx-vp9 -vbr on -crf 25 -b:v 0 "out.webm" Can add -an if you need to strip the audio and increase the crf if you need a smaller file at the expense of quality.
