Feedback #4: Bugs, Ideas and Feedback

Last issue established problems with Kissu's software and the need to expand into custom written user interfaces, moderation tools and customization of existing aspects.

As of this point kissu's experimental UI is in a beta state(all functionality planned out for the current revision, usable, but buggy and unstable).
The experimental UI's purpose is to bring a 4chanX like environment into kissu providing it with dynamic content that reacts to the user's needs and offers a more responsiveness to the board changes(notifications on site content and your own). A list of features will be set below in the next post.
What we have now is a server with read only permissions on the vichan database to create it's own API pages for the React front-end+server.
While it handles poorly on 800 post threads, this is likely due to poor optimization that I'll fix in the coming weeks. That being said, there is a huge improvement to viewing experience in music threads such as https://beta.kissu.moe/qa/thread/47339#qa-47339

Kissu was also targeted for the first time by script spammers with preexisting knowledge on the workings of Vichan, even going so far as to script spam my banner program with account generation. Though we managed not to cause any interruptions to people's activities on Kissu it required a lot of energy from the staff and required me to get a moderator in addition to Cool. This giving us 22 hour surveillance over the actions happening on the site.
I also felt that time was up for /megu/ which I was uncomfortable about. The new board /ec/ offers a more arguably cultured/artistic board devoted to cute and sexy image sharing.
In the future we will need more moderation tools and I think that the following 3 will put kissu into a state where it's in full control of it's own agenda.

The current three tools that I feel will help kissu and not be too hard to implement are:
- Perceptual hashing: http://blockhash.io/
This will target people's avatars and repetitive image spam. Cloudflare already provides this for child sexual abuse material(and even forwards offending IPs), but for our own purposes this is needed to put more stress on spammers obfuscating their images. In the very least, when combined with a captcha, their spam becomes less recognizable and more comedic when they have to put noise into it. Nonetheless, I think that it's worth pointing out that no captcha or spam gaurd is unsolvable and there needs to be other solutions.
- Archive Backups
The archive on kissu doesn't yet function as a backup because post information gets wiped when it gets knocked off of the pages. Though the archive isn't planned to be a feature of the experimental UI, it is still useful for moderation and restoration of the site after captcha breaking spam attacks.

Still, what if the spammer is completely automated, breaking the captcha, flooding every second, spamming every single thread on the site… then what?

A year ago I made the proxy scrapper program that searches pages for IPs and submits them into the ban table.
This is a solution that catches 1 or 2 ips every so often. But what if it needs to be expanded to eliminate large swaths of IPs and thuroughly deny access from any webserver proxy? Well, it might be worth considering how 4chan handles rangebans. A new function should be added to vichan whenever the system or mod bans an IP address that potentially eliminates subnets when a certain threshold of bans are hit. If the IP scrapper sees that a number of IPs are banned between it will make the decision that the subnet is unusable due to spam and automaticly issue a ban. Naturally this will cascade upwards to when a certain threshold is hit. This combined with filter rules for autobanning will create a system where script spammers are getting consistently shut out and maintain the speed of vichan which starts slowing down when the ban table hits 1000 entries.
In addition to this, it means that mods don't have to put in as much thought into combatting spam making it easier for these active users to contribute to the community and not police it.

-Real backups
Kissu needs an automated backup system. This is not complicated to do for the database, but images will take more effort. I could pay the server provider some money for this, but unless there is a crash, I'll find a manual system, or accept recommendations on this.

These will be done using Vichan since there will be way too much unnecessary wheel reinventing otherwise

Remove the #jp Banner

First of all (this should come as no surprise to some of you), #jp, an IRC channel that is hosted on the same IRC server as one of our #qa channels, is filled with what we would consider "undesirable" users who post "undesirable" content. If a high standard of quality is to be kept on this site, "undesirable" users must be kept from posting.
The banner system that has been introduced on kissu.moe allows users an opportunity to advertise locations on the internet to other kissu.moe users. A banner has been created for #jp by a user, and this banner is currently active on kissu.moe.
Regardless of how #jp could influence the quality of kissu.moe, it would be unfortunate for one of our users to enter the mental asylum that is #jp. The users there are beyond redemption and would only insult any naive users of the banner system. Consequently, such a negative experience with the banner system would dissuade further use of it, meaning less clicks on banners that do not lead to #jp.
Now, if a user were to engage in #jp acively, he may return to kissu.moe, spreading the "undesirable" content that may be found there. This lowers the site quality and may be difficult to deal with, as users returning from #jp often flavor their posts ever so slightly, as to make their removal unwarranted.
That is all I have to say on this issue, thank you and have a good day.

Was feeling that kissu was a bit slow these past couple days. However when I went to check my /all/ tab I keep open to track post counts it appears that the site is doing just as well as it usually is, only content is becoming more spread across the boards. It begs the question of how this look affects the site as a whole. So with that in mind I want to know what /b/'s opinions are on this matter. Is content being spread out a good or bad thing?

Personally I find it to be a mix of both since it has allowed for a more varied appeal for the site, but having some boards be not as fast may make it feel as though the site isn't as fast.

From my emails

Today, from approximately 21:12 to 21:39 UTC, a configuration error in our backbone network caused an outage for Internet properties that use Cloudflare. During this period we saw traffic drop by about 50% across our network. Because of the architecture of our backbone this outage didn’t affect the entire Cloudflare network and was localized only to certain geographies.

This service disruption was not the result of an attack. It was caused by a network configuration error which caused traffic across our backbone to be sent to a single router on our global network. This quickly overwhelmed that router and caused Cloudflare network locations connected to the backbone to fail. Other locations not connected to the backbone continued to operate normally.

We have posted an initial summary of this incident on the Cloudflare blog. We’ve already made a change to the backbone configuration to make sure that this cannot happen again.

We’re deeply sorry about how this disruption may have impacted your services. Our business is based on trust and transparency and we are committed to your success.

R:55 / I:9 (sticky)


This is the thread for discussing improvements, fixes, additions and development of oyasumi-chyuu, a site made to house /qa/'s collection of OPs and EDs. Up until now I've been working on it on my own, but it was always intended to become a place that the community can develop together. I haven't asked for any help on it because I wanted to learn how to do things on my own, but now that it has most of the main features that I wanted to add its a good time to open it up. If it seems like a very basic site, thats because it is. I'll make a github soon enough so everyone can look at the actual files and help improve them as needed, but if theres something that you think needs to change and you know how to do it, by all means please help.

Theres a number of fixes I want to work on now but for now I want to focus on the development of a scraper. Its been suggested that we make a scraper that will pull information about a given OP from a site like anidb.net. The scraper will put the information into the post form for the user, so all they really have to do it select the file to upload, select which OP it is and hit Go. This will both minimize the chance for errors and wrong or inaccurate information entered, and will make uploading a series of videos from the same show much simpler. Aside from this, its also been suggested to make a scraper that will collect more information about the song used in each OP itself )such as the song name, artist) and display that. There are a couple other sites that have information on the complete soundtrack from different shows so we can pull from there. Plus, if we pull from those sites, it gives us a more accurate number of how many OPs and EDs a series has so we can collect them all. I haven't looked too deeply into this, so if theres anybody out there with any experience or who knows how to do this your help would be greatly appreciated!

On Internet Politics

Recent discourse shows there is unease around politics. But there isn't a consensus of what politics are.
Let's say that typically politics is "the activities of the government, members of law-making organizations, or people who try to influence the way a country is governed" and the discussion of this is political discussion. The problem is that this doesn't cover everything that's been referred to as politics. Let's then say, working with the separation of the internet from the real world, that political discussion is the discussion of the current state of events in the real world, how the world should be and the ideas behind both. Things are considered political if they tie or lead into these.
That sounds way too broad and unhealthily rulefaggoty, doesn't it?
Well, it is. Let's put a clause in there: something is considered depoliticized, so not political, if in a community its presence does not lead to political discussion. This can be because it's taken as a joke, because nobody cares enough to spark the fire, because everyone agrees and it's common sense, or some other reason. With that clause, even though everything has a certain worldview, a certain ideology behind it, you can differentiate between conflictive and peaceful content. Calling someone a fag or a nigger, even though it's linked to RL conflict, is not political because it doesn't generate political discussion. If one day it did generate it, then it would be political. Things can likewise stop being political if the reasons for something causing political discussion go away.

But that's still too harsh, isn't it? Maybe. What about realism.
Certain threads invite comments about the state of the real world, whether because it's directly or tangentially related to the state of a medium or because of some other bullshit I can't think of. This can easily derail the thread into politics (or just kill fun without introducing politics), and it ends up being kinda shit. To elude such an end, the thread ought to be approached with a suspension of disbelief, unlike for example the mistake I made in >>>/qa/40946 where following >>/qa/40936 instead could've lead to more fun (the conclusion of the former is a barren earth, the latter's is alternate history scenarios), reign in the realistic 'tism to facilitate enjoyment. One must also be conscious of posting or replying to controversial ideas, else a spiral of butthurt be started. With that in consideration, things should in average be less political.

The issue isn't really the material or the people, it's the context around content eliciting a certain reaction from people.

About thread creation

I believe thread creation to be one of the greatest deciding factors of how active a (random) board is. Just for example, take a look at kissu when it's most active (aside from meta shittery), it's always on days in which threads are made that keep the board fresh and the people within it engaged in a multitude of varying topics. So many are content with replying to content when it's created, yet by comparison very few are comfortable with creating threads of their own. What does kissu think of this predicament? I'm not saying that people should step up thread creation to the point of making stuff which is just taking a toll on themselves, that seems to backfire, but how do you inspire the masses to raise their voices on that which they want to talk about?

4/qa/ review

There used to be a time in which I'd use kissu, yet still check 4/qa/ wondering if everyone really had left. I'd see some threads that indicated there was a soul on there I may be able to still connect with who still hadn't made the move away. That time is long gone now and I can't remember the last time I even had the urge to look at the board until today. I've got to say it was a completely foreign sight, akin to how I'd view /bant/ back in the days when 4/qa/ was thriving (/bant/ was better but that matters not). A board that seemed to be "alive" in some technical sense of the word while completely unappealing or devoid of what made it good to begin with. I went into the singular familiar thread, The Happenings Thread, only to see that it was not even a shadow of its former self. Rather it seemed to have transformed into some frankenstein's monster that now resembles more a typical general on that accursed site. I'm not too sure what to conclude this with, as these ramblings are a mere result of my curiosity getting the better of me to check on the place I used to call home. If there was any takeaway I'd say this, that it sure made me glad for this place's existence.

Feedback #3: Bugs, Ideas and Feedback

The site's core features are still good, but the battle against bugs is never ending.
Joining the bugs now is poor design decisions and maintenance of Vichan over the decade that has left it in a poor state and even making some bugs impossible to fix. An example of this is the 0-NF database design (where all file information is put into an SQL column) makes it impossible to cleanly fix a bug where the home page runs out of images when people post lots of .mp4 files.

In no particular order:
- Database needs to be put into a more normalized format for easier bug fixes and maintenance
- After PHP7.4 related issues the Twig1.x template engine should be ripped out and replaced with a Twig3.x version
- API page generation will be less strenuous on servers and allow for clearer code. Exceptions might be on the installer and mod pages which will continue to use legacy page generation… but maybe they won't
- Dumping YouTube IFRAME elements into the page is slow for users and forces a lot of unescicary JavaScript on them. YouTube videos need to be thumbnailed.
- API page generation will simplify this issue.
- There's a lot of "kind of but not really OOP design" all dumped into a functions file or spread out hap-haphazardly. The design is already pretty close to being OOP, so might as well just take it all the way.
- Making modifications such that the kissu-board is usable for others
After these changes the software can't really be called Vichan anymore because even if some functions still exist, the core has been completely altered.

The overboard is a fantastic concept

It solves the problem people have with /qa/ threads dying too fast, and the issue people have with not feeling that they can create as many threads as they can. /jp/ created threads only bump off /jp/ threads, which are more dumb and people don't care as much about or think will fit all that well or meet the quality standard of /qa/. While on the other hand threads that are made on /qa/ aren't killed off as fast. This was an issue that people had brought up for a while, suggesting all sorts of fixes like half-bumps or semi-stickies for the better threads, but unintentionally they were solved by the inclusion of a secondary board and overboard. Limiting the potential harm that people suggested a second board would cause is also a plus.

What are your thoughts on the use and benefits of the overboard, and secondary boards in general if you will. Personally I believe that the secondary boards are a great addition that futureproof the site from running into issues.

That is to say, I do not think the current space for images in /jp/ is optimal for >>3415 .
Naturally, people will use images to express themselves, or because it's fun, or for whatever reason. That's the norm in imageboards and there's no basis to believe people will behave differently if able to post images in /jp/, whichever the set limit.
I believe the linked thread shows an instance where lowering the max amount of image replies was/would be harmful to the creativity V seeks, that the mindset of treating image replies as precious is not there and that there's no reason for it to be there. Withholding usual image replies for the sake of this rarer funpost is not a good bet, and people will continue to do what's statistically more fun (this is a very awkward line). So lowering or increasing the maximum amount of image replies relative to the population is not conductive to a different dynamic, it will either be as in /qa/ but gimped, or it will be no different in practice except for the lack of image dumping. In my experience, I've seen less emoticons and text art in /jp/ since image replies were enabled, that's something I think can be lost because of images filling their role.

I think the options /jp/ has for a dynamic different from /qa/'s are to either restrict image posting to the OP or permit each poster a certain amount of images per thread (at this point, I'd say just one) instead of limiting everyone based on the thread's total images. The latter might probably also amount to a dynamic identical to /qa/, so I'm not sure about it.

Disregard this post at will, it is silly.

Improvements to /all/

This is a summary of alterations.

- Index monitor script will work with /all/ in the same way it works with other boards
- Ability to post new threads from /all/ after specifying the target board

This will allow you to treat kissu like a single board site while also categorizing your threads into separate boards. This is kind of like the tag system on flash boards applied to conventional threads. As a result so called misstaggings might result in and require the establishment of some basic guidelines for board use that can clarify when a thread will be moved or not.

In the future the current kissu home page will have it's fake overboard functionality removed and act as a "hybrid booru+4chan style homepage" showing popular threads and standard vichan search feature(kissu.moe/search.php) in a booru layout. No quick post sumary but hovering over popular threads will show the last 5 posts, maybe like in "4chanx catalog" or maybe the "current kissu home page reply list". So adjustments to this may be important to you.

If there's anything else you would like to see added to /all/ then go for it.

Stupid Meta (Blog) Thread

As time has gone on, especially recently, I've found myself posting less and less on Kissu. This has been for several reasons: end of the honeymoon phase, gradual user interest shift, moderation which is increasingly incongruent with my own views, and new users. Naturally, each of those bears elaboration. Simply as a matter of course, I've started to post less as a consequence of my honeymoon phase with the site ending. Granted, that was some months ago. Nevertheless, during that phase of my posting, I regularly made in excess of 20-30 posts a day (this was around the time of Kissu having ~200 posts per day in late December). After that, I began to make original threads semi-regularly. At some point, however, the extent of my making new threads diminished significantly to where I was only remaking the blog thread and such. Likewise, over time, the bulk of my posts shifted to the blog thread as well. Perhaps influencing my posting has also been the very gradual shift in posting behavior due to increased thread turnover; previously, Kissu was more biased towards longer threads with some level of discussion as opposed to one-off threads that net less than a dozen replies. That's my suspicion, at least – I don't really have anything concrete to back that up other than a general feel that /qa/ has been much faster in board turnover despite relatively stable post counts. As for the more contentious and abstract, Verm's handling of and opinions on certain matters of community and moderation have increasingly rubbed me the wrong way. I'd be remiss to say that I could point to concrete examples, however. For one, there's no permanent archive, so it's fairly hard to conjure up specific examples on that front alone. Generally, though, among the smattering of meta threads, I've found myself disagreeing with Verm's viewpoints. Admittedly, this could be down to the fact that Verm has a particularly verbose and meandering manner of writing which makes it somewhat difficult to glean what he's trying to say. On the other hand, he possesses a certain brash honesty – which in some respects is worthy of praise – that's entirely contrary to his own stated goals. Nevertheless, when he makes comments such as >>>/poll/179 and >>>/poll/185, I can't help but view these statements negatively. Much less significant, though something which has bugged me for some time that I figure I might as well mention, is the fact that Verm has an reprehensible tendency to dismiss entire walls of text based on a single sentence, or otherwise reply saying that he's not going to reply. Anyways… The matter of new users has bugged me for some time now. Firstly, on the front of advertising, I firmly disagree with the frankly lazy method of borderline spam "Come post here" posts on other imageboards; I'm resolutely on the side of any and all advertising being on the basis of word of mouth. Secondly, I very much disagree with the notion of needing advertising in the first place. As for new users themselves: at best, they've been quite noticeable; at worst, their posting style is obnoxious and/or reaction seeking. Generally, their presence annoys me. I wouldn't fault them for not knowing what GNFOS or ota is, but having to bear witness to repeated over-done reactions or outright posting things that are "non /qa/" is quite tiresome. Is it really so hard to take it easy? /qa/ is pretty conflict averse, so I figure I'm but one of a select few to feel this way – at least, openly so.

So… That about sums up my feelings. I don't really have any policy prescriptions or anything like that. I just figured I'd mention how I've begun to feel increasingly alienated from posting and from the site in general. All in all, Kissu has been feeling more like a waste of time than anything meaningful recently. That's part of the reason why I decided to delete my banners on a whim – there's no point, especially not when I haven't been enjoying posting.

Rules section of the welcome message updated to be a bit more clear on why things get moved or autosaged. There's still no strict behavior rules, but these are the guidelines to clarify why something is acted on.

> Illegal/Gross = moderation,

> 3D outside of /spg/ = move/delete,
> breaking board guidelines = move/delete/autosage.
> This is not a comprehensive list of actions but a clarification on some of them.
> /trans/ is our trashcan.

It doesn't feel right to make a negative thread, but in my opinion the banner mentioning sageru #jp and the hima banner linking to a toad should be removed. How do other people feel about these?

hima had spammed the banner system with frogs and the "loli" one linking to the toad is a remnant of that time. hima's overall opinion of kissu and /qa/ has been negative so I think both groups are served well by this removal.

As for the #jp one. Well, #jp is a cesspit that's worse than the worst of gnfos combined with the worst of mero and pol and r9k. Its home to the person or people that spent so much time trashing 4/qa/ when we were still over there. It is unfathomable to me to link to there from kissu. It's questionable why this person made an ad for #jp and not #qa, but I'll leave it there.

Someone might mention that /what/ seems similar to #jp or gnfos and such and I didn't mention removing their banner. There's still some good people there trying to enjoy themselves. Whatmin does delete the spam and worst posts on his site occasionally and unlike the other places they have an overall friendly relationship with kissu.

I'll try to figure out something to link to and how to make animated stuff. I don't want to remove things without replacing them with something better, if other people agree with me on them being a bad idea.

Ok, so I think I actually thought of a good way to implement the /blog/ board idea without just splitting things up while leaving the problem unchanged. How about for the blog board it functions as a kind of like ban.kissu.moe, or an IRC, but each post looks like a thread post. Then you limit the max amount of posts that can be on the board at a time to 10 or 15, so that people will come to see it as more a place for more fleeting thoughts than in-depth discussion. That way you can preserve a place for people to post their benign blogs, and then in general people will gravitate towards turning more interesting ideas into threads

What are you doing reading this?

I understand that many do not have the money to throw around and if that's the case you should save instead and not worry about me. I don't think anyone expects this to make much money but you can't know without trying and I've got nothing to do with my money anyways so might as well toss it into kissu in the hopes of a ROI.
Kissu is not really a controversial site(when you hide megu anyways…) so it might have a better chance at monetization than 8 and 4chan. Some blogs make living money on a less interesting product model. The weakness of course here is number of users which puts a large financial burden on anyone participating.

What you're contributing towards is me putting more time into all of the gross or complicated stuff you don't want to do like advertising, managing, and building features onto the site. Money will be the means to secure the quality of my labour. If you want to look at what you're buying look at all the extras I've added to vichan that help make this place more suited to posting. I can still do more as 4taba has features that could be adopted, but if I get a corprate job many new parts of the site will probably never be added.

One step at a time, but if we hit 1.1kUSD/mo i should be able to live with side gigs. Moving somewhere cheap would help. Right now we are at 0.005kUSD/mo.

Is there a way to unhide threads or posts? Sometimes when I try to minimize videos I accidentally hide the post instead, and I've done it to a few threads now. I don't see any way to undo this.

If if there's no way to do it I think it should be added as a site feature.

The records show kissu has in it's ranks 2 meta boards(poll, b), 2 2D boards(megu, jp) and 3 random boards(spg, qa, trans).

it runs a video synchronization program, a captcha service, various web scrappers and an IRC bot. Additional parties possess things such as 2 IRC channels, a steam chat, a Booru and a anime openings archive.

It's reported that it makes a dollar a day and gets viewed ~40,000 times a month. It has no relationships with other imageboards though it does have possitive relations with /what/, a heritage from 4chan and an unclear connection with 4taba.

it's also reported that the admin is not to be trusted and is occasionally called a "vermin". Further details are unclear. I must lurk more.

Captchouli Nominations!

As you've probably noticed, Kissu supports a neat CAPTCHA named "Captchouli" that uses booru tags to supply image sources and the correct answer. While we did get some suggestions when it was tested out back then, it wasn't very thorough and didn't last very long. So here's the thread to rectify that!
The most common choice is of course character names, but you can also do things like hamburger, pink_flower or pout.
Suggest tags!

Remind me later to grab the CSS info off of that filters thread I used to post on 4/qa/!

Here's the CSS I've used for a long time but recently edited a tiny portion. I'm attempting to get the "first-letter" bit to work on posts that start with a quotelink, but I can't seem to make any headway.

"Take it easy" is the mintboard.org motto, for example, that's how laid back it is there. Show up if you want to have a good time. Another good reason to show up is if you want to hang out with friends.

Feedback #2: Kissu Entertainment Levels

At this point Kissu has gotten all the core features I think are needed to be successful.
This leaves issues of User Interface and Stylesheets.

Please post in here any improvements to the way things are currently done.
Whatever I believe is a new feature will be dismissed, but if something will improve your posting experience put it in here. I don't want to alter the basic operation of the site and moderation however as I don't want kissu to be in eternal beta.

As before bugs take priority over improvements, but I think it's still too soon to be thinking about optimizations. More important though is building up a site culture so that there's a greater reason for people to post here.
