Ron Watkins (Codemonkey of 8chan fame) is moving onto alien conspiracies, presumably because Q money is drying up and he senses a new grift which is actually a pretty established grift with a fair amount of competition.

>Tor is ending its support for version 2 (v2) Onion Services, and v2 onion sites have since been deprecated. If you're a site administrator, upgrade to a v3 onion service immediately. Learn more

What's this about? How many sites are going to be affected that aren't going to be updated because of absent devs?


old news, it means v2 addresses will stop working after oct 2021
although i think most of these websites are not controlled by "absent devs", or they would have been dead already


Tell me a single good reason to use tor? clearnet aside


Putting aside the kinds of content that can't be accessed on clearnet; If you were that concerned about anonymity then you wouldn't be using the sites that require it in the first place.


You can easily host a hidden service behind NAT.


zzzchan.xyz down following a security breach of ebin proportions. Turns out anyone with an account could take ownership any board and manage any post. The owner is having a panic attack while he tries and figures out how to deal with it.


isn't jschan owned by someone else


yeah so the breach probably affects him as well but he hasn't realized it yet


If you live in a nation that censors the internet, you can use it to visit blocked websites.


i mean, sturgeon or whoever runs Z isn't a jschan contributor. It seemed like he was mostly a community admin, not dev admin.


what version was zzzchan running on, there was a bug that allowed unauthorized users to basically get access to admin accounts but that was fixed months ago, or did the jschan dev fuck up again


Apparently this bug was found two months ago, but since zzzchan uses an outdated version of JSchan the attacker managed to exploit it.

Yes. JSchan (the software) is primarily developed by an Aussie who has a test site at fatchan.org. zzzchan.xyz is owned by a different person who used to be a mod on Fatchan and Zchan's /v/ before both sites went down for various motives.

It was 0.1.0 when I visited it for the last time. The current version is 0.1.4 according to fatchan.org

Youtuber vs Floyd Mayweather boxing match is going on, /sp/ has become the fastest board on 4chan.



/sp/ at 120 PPS
also at the beginning of the fight a commentator said something like "this is Tik Tok meets 4chan"


I don't think I understand the comparison...


4chan is the everyman, whereas tiktok are spoiled kids.

It appears that soyjak.party , the infamous imageboard that spams altchans to death, and is home to the people who browse 4/qa/ nowadays, got hacked.

The dragon vtuber is graduating and /vt/ is in flames.




Leaving the company, never streaming again after July 1st.


hmm, they can't do the same trick anymore after the kizuna ai fiasco...


sorry for living under a rock, but what happened to ai-chan?


the company secretly occasionally replaced the person behind kizuna ai to another person, but the personality difference was discovered by some viewers and they were very unhappy about it
the company's response was even more disappointing, seemed to let the original person to appear less and less
from my memory they even got a "mirror" kizuna ai to appear at the same time as "real" one, hinting that the original one will "graduate" soon, by that time they lost all credibility



The fuck does it mean to 'graduate' in vtuber? Are they just firing the employees? lol

I don't think he's been on the site for a couple years. 4chan is a passive investment while he actively generates money from his youtube casts and books.

Done posting on ota forever.

Admin edited my posts, filename, and changed the image I posted.

Then changed my post's password so I couldn't delete it.

This kind of shit is why Henri left and it's why I'm leaving. Incredibly petty and jealous admin.


Wait really what the heck?


4chan is down

I have not posted there for years. It's overtaken with /49k/, /b/, /GNFOS/ and all over kinds of 4chan like posters.


I have no problem with the posters.

No I'm done posting there just like henri.

You can see how the current speed of the board compares to normal by looking at the 'activity now' column - 2.5x speed is definitely exceptional.

Your best bet might be to try and contact someone in their IRC which I think was on freenode.

Predictable. The Siberian retard who owns the network? company? spawned a lot of sites and services (including a hosting service similar to Neocities, which definitively requires a lot of maintenance, more than an imageboard) in a short spawn of time just for the sake of it without thinking on long-term consequences.

/sp/ now has individual flags for the countries in Great Britain. Northern Ireland keeps the Union Jack.





why is that good


Imageboards should not be centralized, moreover one individual should not be owning a handful of them.


Ironic that you post on kissu, then.


Two is not a handful.


and 4 is? thats where you draw the line?


Any more than 2 is too many.


I did not know he owned more than one, what other board does Kissumin have?


4taba. The old owner had decided that they didn't want to continue working on it anymore and was going to let the site die. Vermin picked up the site and old domain and continued running the site. Not at all comparable to that guy, who swoops in and buys out sites and then threatens legal action on the basis of copyright infringement if others try to make a new site based on the old one.


File:d29d9c7fef1ec280770b74d8ba….png (687.7 KB,740x720)

Actually. Now that I think about it, maybe "that guy" was being upfront about his intentions all along. Kolyma was an old Soviet prison labor camp. Might as well have named his network "Treblinka" instead, because everything he touches is apparently not just doomed to indefinite confinement, but to death as well.


I got an email once from someone there asking to take the 4taba off my hands


can you name more than one instance that he bought a site or used legal action (gurochan)?

he didnt buy heyuri, by the way. didnt seize it either


how does this guy not realize how transparent he comes off with his constant damage control


think he was trying to sue the owner of 64chan too


ive never heard about that


i dont like that guy either but most of the stories told about him here have no substance...


>buy heyuri
I don't remember if it was the site, the domain or the trademark, but he bought something from Heyuri's other co-admin to keep the site for himself.

Yeah, he was even offering $1000 for info about 64ch's admin (Maki) mafia style, all because Maki DDoSed one of his sites.

He also wanted to buy Lolifox without success.


Heyuri's other co-admin is still the main developer for Heyuri. He sold the site to that guy because he no longer had the personal time required to moderate it. Not that it matters much now, considering the site died activity-wise.

me too kind of, but they list kissu.moe as a malicious site and this place censors his name so i have a feeling that it wont happen


best thing to do with a histrionic is a wordfilter


the amount of misinformation about him in this thread is stunning, there are never any sources, never anything to show for it, just speculation. its 1-2 guys running rounds trying to mess with peoples reputations for fun


don't try to social engineer your way into this site.




another common tactic, "everyone who disagrees with me is him". cool samefag by the way


File:1624577244893.png (15.05 KB,400x200)


i think your missing the point

its saying that calling a tiny group of websites a monopoly and "too big" is extremely ironic considering the circumstances of the imageboard meta


Nah, I get it. I just thought it would be funny to add that text.


His name is filtered because he's been posting in the thread with an IP that resolves to one of his websites trying to bait drama about himself and create an atmosphere as a tough guy imageboard personality.

Likewise we(cool or myself) will have to take more actions against drama if individuals(or perhaps a collective) continue to post an "us vs them" narrative about Kissu and other sites in a strange attempt to generate publicity and advertise rather than discuss imageboard events/happenings.


>he's been posting in the thread with an IP that resolves to one of his websites trying to bait drama about himself


File:emo-yotsuba-ph34r.gif (462 B,42x33)

gas the russians
imageboard wars now
consider copying/stealing Heyuri's Yotsuemoji system. It's the only thing I like of that site.


it was plainly obvious to me he's constantly astroturfing ITT but it's still nice to be vindicated like this

what a creepy schizo


Regardless, there are a lot of misinformation about him. Drama is inevitable when there are those dramaqueens claiming outright false information every time he is slightly related to the topic, at anywhere. I think once everything is made clear, there wouldn't be any reason to bring up drama either. They never show any proof at all.


not really a happening but posting is down on 4chan again. Interestingly the boards load fine for reading, but the home page (i.e. https://4chan.org/ ) doesn't load


just saw this too and this is the first place i tab over to to verify


According to 4stats the site has been broken for around two hours, and some boards (like /tg/, /qa/ and /vt/) are completely empty.
>the home page (i.e. https://4chan.org/ ) doesn't load
sys.4chan.org is down as well.


Here's hoping the site never gets fixed.


about 3 hours late with that hope



Better late than never?


Dev seems completely out of place on the new /qa/...


the happening threads are as close to old /qa/ as exists on 4chan


The 4chan Happening thread died long ago...


I'm surprised he even threw a pearl to the swine.


The author of the most accurate Super Famicom emulator has allegedly killed himself/themselves in a fit of depression following an unsuccessful attempt to bring down a Kiwifarms entry on him/them, prompting the twitter outrage mob to spam Cloudfare with requests to pull an 8gag on Kiwifarms and 4chan. This in spite the fact the latter had nothing to do with this and the former's entry being piss relevant in the grander scheme of things (compared to say, YandereDev). Regardless, a significant part of imageboardians celebrate the event of a supposed trannoid's demise (the guy wasn't full blown trans) and the twitter mob keep pushing for more internet regulation to avenge the death of one of their beloved comrades (there are archived /emugen/ posts in which the guy admits that trying to become part of the twitter clique has been a huge mistake in his life since he didn't really fit with their groupthink). All in all a great tragicomedic encapsulation of everything shitty with the modern web.


Could you not infuse buzzwords into news? Anyways, fuck kiwifarms. If I could trade it for LiveLeak, I would do it in an instant.


heh, the site's DoS'd into being offline and showing a statement page


It would be surprising if this'll be the thing to finally end it for good.

>Could you not infuse buzzwords into news?
Byuu/Near (Byuu is a cooler name, so I'll use it for the rest of my post), the creator of the most accurate SNES emulator allegedly killed himself over an old Kiwifarms thread about him. According to various sources, he tried to convince Josh to take down the page by offering him $10k, helping to work for him and even threatening him with the blame for making Byuu kill himself, something Josh rejected again and again. Twitter and similar shitholes have been doing DDoS attacks on Kiwifarms while blaming it and 4chan (even when it has nothing to do with this) for Byuu's death, Josh has uploaded the emails shared between him and Byuu to defend his point, while /v/ermin have mixed opinions on this (some celebrate because Byuu was a transgender furry or something like that, while others lament his death and/or condemn Kiwifarms for it).

Here's the original doc from one of Byuu's close friends narrating what happened: https://archive.ph/McXtE
Here's Josh's response: https://archive.is/qy7TT
And here are the emails between him and Byuu: https://archive.vn/2021.06.27-212420/https://kiwifarms.net/threads/byuu-byuu_nyan-setsunakun0.43056/page-14

I don't give a shit about the drama, I just hope this doesn't kill the development of Higan and bsnes since they're really cool projects.


Hope that doesn't die too, but kiwifarms can burn to the ground

Agreed. Fuck em.

It's ignorant to take social media out of the blame game.

Someone is autistic but has a need for socialization. He turned to social media for help.
It was a mistake, he thought he made some friends here by trying to fit in, but in reality he got the kind who would turn back on him because of his political views and being doxxed that was not his fault. And the kind of mobs who would use him as a weapon to advance their political agenda instead of genuinely helping him.
Hell, he could'ven't even known the existence of kiwifarms if not for his social media "friends" telling him.


KF doesn't deserve blame for making some guy kill himself, but it does deserve blame for being a community of losers who spend their time stalking other losers in order to feel better about their own miserable lives.


KF reminds me of PSAs about bullies being bullying victims paying it forward. They're losers putting down others to feel better about themselves.


You should refrain from generalizing a group just to fit your personal view.


Huh. Old news, but I just noticed that rbt.asia was merged into desuarchive.


I was wondering what was going on with RBT redirecting to desu, but I guess that makes sense now.


File:fe7169293a.png (104.63 KB,1243x685)

Kind of interesting, but during the peak of vtubers on /jp/, the board was faster than even /vt/ is now for a more sustained period. Probably due to the fact that a small portion of activity still remains on /jp/. But what I find most interesting is just how fast /jp/ not only lost activity, but that it leveled off at exactly the peak it hit before the board exploded.


File:furwheels.jpg (1.67 MB,1224x6946)

Hotwheels made a long post on Twitter about coming out... as a furry. In said post he narrates how seeing 8/fur/'s shota mascot made him realize he was a furry, how keeping it in the closet due to the fear of facing "harassment from the alt-right and kiwifarms" caused him psychological damage, how Byuu's death (scroll up on this thread if you don't know about this) made him come out, and how his fursona (a green fat racoon) represents his childhood trauma or something like that.


gay, cringe, and faggot all come to mind reading that
good for him but also no need to write a short story about it makes him look more insecure than “coming out as a furry” already does

For other imageboards.

File:4capimg2.png (3.13 KB,298x160)

New captcha API endpoint:

The return is JSON containing two PNG images in img and bg field encoded in base64. The challenge field goes to t-challenge and solution to t-response for posting request.

You slide the bottom image over the top image until some letters show.


idiots are being filtered en mass. i can only hope the post activity stays this low but i imagine people will get used to it soon.


File:1625509724838.jpg (266.18 KB,931x666)

The new captcha is already broken. Someone made a script to automatically get the correct slider position using the exploit in the pic.


is it really "broken" just by knowing the slider position, considering some users don't even need to use the slider after a successful post? this is not what an "exploit" means


This means bot posting must have been really out of hand for them to renege on the "google captcha is all we can afford" thing.

If people are smart (which they aren't) they'd want until the design is more finalized before posting stuff like this.

calle calle


Text-based captcha has already been shown broken years ago. You can find many articles by searching.
Even JDownloader has a built-in text captcha solver.

It's just a mater of time before a new design is broken.
By the way, spamming calle calle worked for old recaptcha.


I wonder how Google will take this. All things considered, 4chan is likely among their largest, if not the largest, single source of Captcha requests. Not that Google would want to belittle themselves by bowing to a Mongolian Yodeling forum, but it must account for quite a significant portion of Captcha (and by extension image, text, and audio) training data, I would think.


It's an OK captcha I think.

The thing is that there are a lot of variable positions and neural networks are subject to missinterpretting noise as signals. Not only does it have to run a lot to verify every position, a good implementation will have to be able to recognize what actually is a letter and what is garbage.


Maybe Google got around to charging 4chan money for the service. They said they were going to start charging money a while ago, which is why Cloudflare switched to hCaptcha.


It certainly makes it weaker.

People pointing this stuff out helps them fix it.

That's true, but Recaptcha was even more broken than text captchas due to the small number of possible solutions, allowing guessing attacks. At this point it's more of an IP blacklist than a captcha.


/biz/ in particular was filled with constant bot spam.


How strange that4chanX stopped working here at the same time 4chan changed its catcha (which doesn't load in 4chanX's quick reply window by the way). Right now the quick reply window is gone, hovering over reply numbers does nothing, and clicking on them reloads the entire page. I'm on the legacy/original mode, haven't tried the new UI yet.


The quick reply here isn't part of 4chan X.


4chanX updated, quick reply window works and I was able to post.


I wonder how 4chan handles spam overall. Yotsuba seems pretty dated, so probably poorly.


Yotsuba probably runs an ancient version of PHP and mootsl's spaghetti, but they have an active developer who is good at dealing with these things.


can you explain this because this makes no sense


Top portion is one position before correct, it always seems to have one pixel width lines that are either black or white. I'm guessing how it would work is just by checking for vertical lines, and adjusting the slider until there are no more vertical lines, thereby solving the captcha.


it isn't solving the captcha. it's just a slider that resolves the captcha. it's just an extra step, not an overall solution. and regardless, captchas are a filter not a full-stop and you'd be disingenuous to suggest this isn't a functional filter.


I disabled uBO on kissu and everything seemed to work again. I wonder exactly what did I bork this time.


Fix the problem and whatever, captcha "unsolved". Beats chess and for a multi-topic site that can't use knowledge captchas(captchouli) I think it's got something going for it.


File:Screenshot 2021-07-05 2318….png (88.7 KB,1362x496)

>you'd be disingenuous to suggest this isn't a functional filter.
How much of a difference has it actually made? I don't care enough to know what's typical of every board, but going based on historical trends on 4stats, nothing seems particularly slower than usual.


Someone on 4chan /g/ managed to OCR their new captcha at 80% accuracy using Calamari and 476 training images:


if it weren't an effective filter then there would be a lot more activity than normal. same activity is not a bad sign.


I really don't get why so many people seem upset about the new captcha. It's not even hard... I guess it goes to show how many people never had to deal with captcha v1.

I guess this is true.


In my case, it's less convenient than 4chanX's noscript captcha + keyboard mode where you only had to select 3 images by pressing their respective keys in less than a second. The new captcha forces me to leave my keyboard and use the mouse (or press Tab various times) to press on the "get captcha button, then makes me move to the keyboard and write the visible characters and press enter, assuming that I get a captcha without slider and I don't have to use my mouse to drag it. Not to mention that the site no longer lets you post "for free" during some minutes before making you solve a captcha, you now have to solve one for every post regardless of which board you are in.
Still much better than the regular Recaptcha, which could take entire minutes or even block you if you refused to suck Google's cock and let them shove trackers down your ass.


Genuinely, why do you still post on 4chan?


File:78789010_p0.jpg (281.48 KB,715x1000)

Nowadays I only use a couple of boards there and lurk a handful of other sites to complement them. 4/qa/'s happening thread and /cm/'s shota thread are the only recurring 4chan threads I post in while being a silent lurker elsewhere.


Honestly I'd spoiler the first one nowadays...

>What is that
an unreliable email provider. it's somewhat relevant to the thread since people use it a lot on imageboards and the owner used to post on /g/
>why is it blocked in my country
dunno, it's nothing menacing by itself but it's been used by drug dealers and to send death/bomb threats so there's that. the servers have been raided multiple times
>Is it good email service?
no but it's not bad for a burner email. I use that to register on shitty sites, to receive mailing lists, and to contact people on imageboards


File:firefox_4Yp7Ym2Fea.png (127.18 KB,1237x678)

Looking at the post totals it shows there's been a small drop. Whether it continues to drop or not is anyone's guess, but the captcha is a hell of a lot more annoying than recaptcha for those google treated nicely.

The captcha solver was updated to handle the slider.

It solves the slider like this:
>>Also is the slider a bruteforce search where you feed the image to the nn and settle on the most probable position?
>This was my initial attempt but there 50 possible offsets and solving 50 images takes about 35 seconds on my computer. So I just select the position of slider that minimizes the percentage of black pixels that have a non-black pixel below them.

4chan then changed the captcha a bit and the captcha solver's author started downloading new images to retrain on.


It's weird that 4chan loves branding its projects as being from 4chan. Even if they took audacity to new heights and made the best audio editor in the world, the name "sneedcity" has already killed it. It makes it look like a joke.


Just install an older version. Not exactly like much ever changes from version to version.

The point still stands. They named their software after a dumb fucking meme, destroying its marketability. Nobody's going to use a program called sneedcity for serious work.

really? my news feeds were spammed with it, two waves even. I'm not sure why it was big news, then disappeared for a month or more, then appeared again with twice the drama. Maybe the news writers that monitor imageboards were responsible for the second wave.

I mean, is this really a surprise to anyone.


It's strange to me that people are still so ignorant as to think that mods aren't active there on 4/qa/. Isn't that ban phrase (noo my heckin qa'arinoooo nooooo) itself one of those catchphrases that's now synonymous with that cesspit? I mean, there is a /qa/ board on Kissu (and our own happenings thread that is in reality the only happenings thread) because team 4chan decided they wanted a direct influence on the board itself. That is their board more than any other.
One day I hope people learn that 4chan mods are not reluctant heroes, but flawed cynical people that make questionable decisions.


>One day I hope people learn that 4chan mods are not reluctant heroes
Virtually no one thinks this. Sentiment for 4chan mods is extremely low across the site.

He's a bit infamous here because he has done not-so-subtle advertising and brought drama (either directly or indirectly) in various occasions. I personally think that all of his sites are irrelevant wastes of time and resources and that he should focus on one of them and get rid of the rest, but whatever, it keeps this thread busy during dead hours.

Not directly related to imageboards, but unlisted videos are used sometimes, so...
Youtube is changing unlisted videos and turning them into private videos unless people log in to change them back. I'm sure there's lots of older accounts that won't be signing in to revert them, so go back up any unlisted videos you have bookmarked. The comments made on them will be set hidden, too. Seems like a really stupid change, but I'm not a company with power rivaling several countries so what do I know?


Why can't google ever introduce good changes...?


They are good changes, for google.

Google knows what it's doing. They have one of the largest collections of data in the world, and they use it to find what will statistically make them the most money, even if everyone says they hate it.

I really loved the characters design


I've found that the CP spam has been documented by some unindexed forum, or a discord

It has come to our attention that Ganbatte is running a Paedophilia network of spambots.
The lead admin is called Patch is running bots from South Korea and Russia.
As a result some of the chans listed here are currently hosting pizza content posted by the bots and those that are infected are moved to the very bottom of the list until the content is either removed or the site gets seized by the authorities
I suggest you open these links in Tor Browser for the time being.


I would take this with a truly gargantuan grain of salt as the people involved in those places thrive on conflict and conspiracies and it's extremely difficult to find any solid information if it exists in the first place.
This seems like a good site list, however.


Isn't that the mentally unstable faggot who creates imageboards with little to no rules, spams links to them on every other known imageboard and then deletes them after two weeks because somebody pointed out this behavior in a thread? I heard in the past that he had a tendency for spamming CP on sites that "rivaled his", but I didn't know he was responsible for the spam with links to shady "CP packs" too.


For a moment there I thought this was about Hara Tetsuo, the king of Men (漢). That still sucks, though.


File:88772614_p0.jpg (1.83 MB,1325x1600)

Do you guys know that 4gag is completely infested with bots?
A lot of the posts (perhaps the majority) aren’t made by real people.
Maybe you already know this but I want to bring it up...
I’m only beginning to understand how bad things really are...

(Personally, I think the “resident schizos” on 4/qa/ aren’t real people either, they’re bots. How else can you explain the constant flood of utter garbage on the board? 24/7, 365 days a year?)


I mean it probably seems like it from all the posts, but I think that's more the average populace than bots...


I know personally that /biz/, /qa/, and /pol/ are horrific about it.
I'm sure plenty more have them as well.


How do you know this?


https://archive.is/7FdoW (https://blog.kolyma.org/fighting-spam/) is linked on the rentry.co site.

Do you think they were covering up, or at least protecting these sites under their hosting service intentionally, or do you think this post is sincere?


Constant verbatim posts, that are regularly posted and not pasta, but ones that seemingly feign discussion for whatever reason.


I don't know what content they had on their website initially. Beyond petty social engineering those guys don't do anything illegal. They're more interested their USSR roleplay. Idk where that site was even linked anyways.


its on rentry.co/chans - and dont they do hosting for the "ganbatte" people? that was my takeaway


Oh yeah, I know what you're talking about. You see them the most on boards that the mods don't care about.


what >>76761 says. I wouldn't focus on talking about speculation. No one likes these ads on their sites.

Most of the links on that page resolve to 4x13 and by extension sageru


That's true of basically every large open discussion platform, isn't it? I know Reddit in particular is especially bad because of how easy it is to make a bot that just finds popular posts of images/videos from a few months ago and reposts them verbatim. At least with a site like 4chan (or parts of it anyway) it is marginally more difficult for bots to blend in with discussion and there isn't much reason to set a bot up there unless you have a personal vendetta against a particular community.


>At least with a site like 4chan (or parts of it anyway) it is marginally more difficult for bots to blend in with discussion and there isn't much reason to set a bot up there unless you have a personal vendetta against a particular community
1. set up bot to fetch posts from archives
3. worked for accelspammer back in the day every time he didn't make it apparent that it was him




I agree.
There's a saying that goes something like "don't attribute to malice that which can be explained by incompetence". Similarly, I don't think a mass of stupid posts on 4chan is necessarily any sign of botting as much as it's a group of teenagers that are easily entertained, at least when it comes to most 4chan things. For boards like /biz/ or /pol/ with real life implications I can definitely see bots as being fairly common, and /b/ had struggled with bots making porn advertising threads for many years. But 4/qa/? I don't think you need bots to salt fields that are already barren. It's just another team 4chan moderation success story, no grand conspiracy of automation needed.


File:1625782069579.png (542.85 KB,935x955)

Around a month ago there was another vice article about 4chan, for some reason focused on /k/...

Read at your own peril.


I'm not sure exactly how to feel. It's certainly more nuanced than the typical, "hur 4chan bad racist ebil white young men", but it still tries to link it back to real world activist crap that's associated with /pol/, and not /k/. It's obviously written by someone who is a clear outsider, and it definitely shows. The fact that they actually bothered to consult someone who isn't a retard like the 8gag people is good I guess, but I think that came down more to sheer luck than being well-intentioned in covering /k/.

All I can really think to say in response to it is, "Okay?" I really don't get what they sought to do in covering /k/ at all.


I have a bad feeling that ota is dead forever this time.

I hope you're okay oatmeal. I know ota has probably been extra stressful to moderate this year, more than it has ever been before.


It went down for around a month this time last year too. Maybe there's something about this time of year that just came up for which otamin needs to take the site down?


I stumbled to ota a while ago at https://8chan.moe/ota/ and got curious but never looked deeply to it


That's not the ota he was talking about...


I wish someone with actual know-how would write about the problems with 4chan. It's a terrible website used by terrible people, but you need to have experience with it to know exactly why and how.


its greatly over exxagerated. Whining about it all day is whats really terrible


I know 4chan stinks because I've been using it for the better part of a decade. Don't you tell me what is and isn't exaggerated!


File:nanochan logo.png (79.19 KB,640x640)

Nanochan, a Tor-only imageboard, has been suffering from neglect from its administrators and mods. They seem to only check the site every few days, and the admin seems to check it even less.

They have left day to day management in the hands of a "trial volunteer" by the name "hikari". Trial volunteers have limited power; they are allowed to hide posts from the default view, but can't permanently delete them. Hikari is not a good moderator; he deletes posts because they disagree with his pro-pedophilia opinions, and he is wrongly convinced he can identify anonymous posters on a Tor-only board, claiming everyone who criticizes him is the "scat spammer."

Because the board was getting spammed regularly, one of the non-trial moderators changed the captcha to what is intended to be a harder version, in which the user has to compute the derivative of a polynomial to post. This significantly decreased the posting rate. The supposedly harder captcha is much easier to automate than the regular captcha, and because of poor design, there is a way to spam at a high rate without decoding the captcha image at all.

The change in captcha did not prevent spam, and as of right now the site is frozen, possibly due to a recent spam wave. If so, this would not the first time in recent history a spam wave has shut down the site. Attempting to post gives the following error:
>500: Internal Server Error
>cannot rollback - no transaction is active


I thought nanochan's hole claim to fame was the admin being insane. The mods being about the same seems like the site's in line with it's original objective.


Which one? I remember reading that there were two or 3 "nanochans" due to autistic mod fights.


I don’t think Congress knows how imageboards work. I wonder how slow /j/ is or if they even keep irc logs. I guess they have discord logs now maybe since the janitors have a server. Just not sure what they could even get from 4chan other than mods/jannies power tripping.


They want them to put forward evidence that they weren't involved with the QAnon capitol storming. If they can't provide some form of evidence they plan to take the site to court.

About time if you ask me


I know owning 4chan would be cool and all, but I don't at all like the precedents this threatens to set.


Governments are allowed to investigate businesses that operate in their country. The benefits of free speech don't apply if you try to overthrow the government that offers it to you.


Describing the events of January 6th as anything other than the capital police mishandling their opsec is disingenuous. To then say 4chan or any business is responsible for the government’s own failing is grasping for straws. The government anyways shouldn’t be able to do anything to 4chan as despite its failing it is probably the closest of any of the major social media sites to upholding the spirit and letter of the law in of section 230.


What is this revisionism. Imageboards that promote "free speech" have always been a centerstone of radicalism. It's about time the US get their shit together.


Are you thinking of the hapa supremacist guy? He was running an alternate nanochan on and off, but not currently.


Yeah, that's the one.
I didn't know there were many versions of the same thing. Seems like they're tied together by insanity


I think you are reading more into my post than what I am meaning. Also you misunderstand the principle of free speech. It necessitates the tolerance of what peers call radicals. If there isn't a tolerance for radicals and radicalization then there isn't free speech.


4chan doesn't have "free speech" in the sense that you are allowed by mods to organize illegal events such as this. Sure it allows people to stew in radicalism but saying that's specific to imageboards is wholly disingenuous since even on other big platforms, facebook especially, this occurs. Saying the US gets its "shit together" is asking them in regards to this is asking for them to address a problem of independent people hosting websites and not giant corporations that will adhere to strict laws. I don't want that.


Free speech is destroyed by radicals and requires regulation. Strict adherence to free speech by nature destroys itself.

Mods on 4chan don't delete events that are on the grey area of legality. Various events have worked to promote the agenda of individuals who go against the idea of freedom. It's about time the US gets their shit together and fucks up any platform that promotes damages to the free world.


Who does the regulation? Free speech is promoted by the existence so many diverse view points such that no one view has the power to overwhelm the others. Any sort of regulation will automatically give the regulator a controlling power over all other views. One of the core objectives of free speech is to prevent might makes right scenarios where the only way someone can show the validity of there idea is by physically fighting over it instead of verbally talking about it. The only form of radicals or beliefs that destroy free speech are the forms that promote restriction or regulation.


File:[Commie] Bishounen Tanteid….jpg (343.38 KB,1920x1080)

In the name of such virtuous causes such as "saving the children" or "opposing radicalization" you get reform that further restricts general individual freedoms to combat a fringe population. In terms of internet censorship this usually means making the web more centralized and hard for individuals to stand up on. Especially with the recent pushes for section 230 reform that would inevitably end up with websites being more unmanageable for individuals leading to more control and activity flowing towards corporations.

Personally I find them despicable, but they are damn effective in tricking fools to be persuaded into giving the government/corporations more control over their lives.


Discord does keep logs of everything including images and voice chat. I guess they could check for any talk about the event in regards to deletions and such, but it will be a test to see how long 4chan keeps the IP information. Although, there's certainly people stupid enough to share images of themselves there so who knows.


Regulation exists no matter how hard you wish that it doesn't exist. Regulation is the very nature of society. If a religious society is allowed to bring up people to value the church more than expression of free religion then the church controls speech of those people. If a country promotes nationalism then the country decides what speech is.

Free speech exists in the Western world at the benevolence of democratic governments. If you let another force control it it's gone.

Opposing radicalism is intrinsic to protecting free speech. If a group of people are allowed to discuss together "hypothetical" means to overthrow a democratic government then they need to be regulated because they threaten the existence of free speech.

Section 230 doesn't exist in many countries yet they still promote free expression. However for some reason in the US it shelters some of the worst sites that no one wants around.


I didn't say opposing radicalism was wrong, but that it's a convenient justification for abuses of personal privacy.


You're acting like 4/pol/ and other boards were involved in the unplanned boomer touristic visit to the capitol in any way. The most they did was spam threads about the event, then spam threads about how much it sucked and how retarded everyone involved were. Nothing was coordinated there (they're too paranoid and stupid to do anything), individuals calling for action were disregarded as "glowniggers" and sometimes deleted. The most 4chan got "involved" was a thread on /k/ about a fat fuck wearing patches sold on an online "/k/ommando store" that isn't related to 4chan in any way.


Regulation of speech always existing is not a reason to not oppose increasing it and it does not say anything about if regulation is harmful to the principle free speech
You may think otherwise but I believe to the point of saying I know regulation of speech is antithetical to the principle of free speech. A Free society doesn't decide what speech is; it lets each individual member decide what their speech is and further each individual member allows other members to decide what their speech is. The only interaction a government can have in regards to free speech is through the regulation/restriction of it. There is of course no functional difference between regulating or restricting free speech.


then you are an ally of totalitarianism is the last thing i have to say.

It's not a bad article. But it and the other articles on the site seem to mainly be a Very Serious effort to investigate why them 4channers are such right wing hitler nazis. The article approaches things from that direction and mostly seems to be interested in the history of 4chan/b/ only to the extent that it can answer that question. Yawn to that. In any case thanks for sharing


I guess it makes sense when you look at their 'about' section:

>Open Intelligence Lab or OILab is an Amsterdam-based collective of interdisciplinary scholars scrutinising online political subcultures on the fringe and lesser-researched corners of the Web.
...OILab follows the provocation that data is the new oil in order to make sense of new political currents in the digital sphere.

Heh. That's quite a strained analogy for the OIL in their name. I guess we're destined to only see papers on memes and politics in regards to imageboards. Maybe it's better this way.


Update: The "hikari" volunteer went on a massive deletion rampage. It was reverted, and his privileges were suspended. Shortly afterwards, somebody started posting child pornography, which has yet to be deleted due to the lack of active moderators.

On the technical side, the side goes down about 1 in every 3 days. It is down right now. One of the users made a text only bunker at:


Why does Nanochan have so much drama involving mods?


Tor and any form of centralization don't work together. Having a mod team will always fail and admins can't be anything more than developers. Trying to treat an onion site as a clearnet site is disaster in progress or leaning heavily on the honor system.


Lack of supervision from the admin, plus most of his mod team losing interest.

>Tor and any form of centralization don't work together
Can you elaborate on why?


policing content is impossible and the people who endorse tor won't let the admin get a good idea about the people's personality leading to bad actors or misaligned team chemistry


It seems like a traditional "staff loses interest" thing to me and that's not limited to TOR. The problem is that the result of that situation is magnified by TOR just like it is with anonymous imageboards over forums with account systems.
Keeping a TOR imageboard clean sounds like a tremendous amount of work.


The sort of people who use both TOR and imageboards are not exactly the most stable. And I'm saying this as someone who is in that bracket (don't worry vermin, I don't use it on kissu)

New update on the nanochan situation. After a period of frequent downtime and anarchy, someone escalated the child pornography posting to hurtcore material. This pissed off hoshi, the last remaining moderator who had been somewhat active, enough for him to become active again and clean up the board. Hoshi also removed a large number of orphaned files which were eating up disk space despite not being referenced in any posts. This seems to have improved the stability of the site, with it no longer going down one day in every three. Hoshi made a post (pic related) declaring himself de facto quasi admin in endofunctor's absense and seeking input on changes to the site.

Become an avatarfag or tripfag and spam CP on his sites.


Looks like he reinstated hikari, so any hope of him governing the site well is pretty much out the window.


did this place even have anything going for it besides it being tor-only (which I personally don't really see as a good thing given what kind of people tor posting generally attracts)


There have been some interesting technology threads, although they were often focused on what some would see as paranoia.
Regarding the site itself, it has actually working moderation transparency (Kissu and nanochan are pretty much the only imageboards that do this correctly), and I think the way you can download the database so that anyone can make a clone of the site if the original goes down is nice.


>I think the way you can download the database so that anyone can make a clone of the site if the original goes down is nice.
wasn't there some 8gag or webring controversy over this? I thought I heard some site had scraped boards and then postured itself as an alternative in an attempt to capture the userbase from the site they were scraping from or something.


I've posted about nanochan bunkers using its database in the past, but I don't recall them being touted as an alternative to the original. The closest thing I can think of to what you describe was when Watkins seized Hiroyuki's 2channel and Hiroyuki made a clone by scraping the original.


I wasn't talking about nanochan in particular, I just thought I had heard some other site in the webring or 8gag splinter sites doing that.


>Kissu and nanochan are pretty much the only imageboards that do this correctly
I'm a dork, what are they doing right that other sites are doing wrong?

8chan.moe has a tool to "import" boards from other sites into it (and any other Lynxchan-based site), but I don't remember any controversy caused by it.


He's talking about, at least in kissu's case, how you can see every mod deleted post on /trans/.

I wouldn't say other sites are in the "wrong" though, as personally I couldn't care less about something like that as it really doesn't impact my experience one way or the other but I guess it's something that placates some people.


> it has actually working moderation transparency (Kissu and nanochan are pretty much the only imageboards that do this correctly)
what does meguca do wrong?


I could live without it, but it's a plus. It's probably most useful for newcomers who want to see if the way a board is moderated is agreeable to them. As for doing it wrong, a lot of sites have a version of this where they log only the reason for the deletion and not the post itself, which is typically useless because of mods with an overly broad definition of "spam." (An exception is that if the mod has a policy of not deleting anything, you can check that the log is empty. But I don't think that's good moderation.)


Good point, I should include meguca based sites in the list of sites "doing it right." And there are probably others I haven't thought of.


Spin-off wojakniggers raided 1chan and all of its threads are gone.


sushigirl too


Didn't even know you could still post on 1chan. most of the time those sites give you an error or the post never goes through.

If the owner or anyone else doesn't have a backup then who cares. The site has been around forever and if no one bothered to preserve it then they have themselves to blame for it disappearing.


In the future I highly suggest not feeding antisocial kids the notoriety they crave, least of all those borne of team 4chan's malice.



*their streamer's twitch profits leaked.


Everyone is focused on the streamer profits, but does this mean there's going to be proprietary code released that will help other websites do streaming? Could be quite a boon to people wanting to get away from Amazon and Google.
And add some nico text scrolling while you're at it.


it's twitch source code and streamer revenue if i'm reading it right


Not how it works. You can't just lift the code unless it comes out that Twitch used GPL code or licensed code that requires downstream edits to retain the same license for usage and redistribution.


text scrolling is already a thing if a streamer decides to enable it

The /g/ thread was moved to /bant/ which presumably was done to kill the link on external sites. The thread was also deleted on /bant/. As a side effect its archived /g/ form on warosu is screwed up, which you can tell by the lack of dozens of ghost spam ads.
This is the /bant/ archive page on its best (in my opinion) archiving site: https://archive.nyafuu.org/bant/thread/13578558/

I recommend not visiting archived.moe without ad-blockers and/or selectively blocking javascript. Here is the archived.moe page of the /g/ thread: https://archived.moe/g/thread/83691438

Great (but old) news for Desuchan. It's still not online today, but the backup exists and it will be brought back at some point.


I remember 1chan being so easy going that in 2017 during my strong imageboard curiousity phase I managed to access their moderation/board panel with hardly any trouble. They must have simply not cared.


There's multiple? I'm only familiar with the train one.


Oh, then you are thinking about the right one. Sorry for the mistake.

In addition to 1chan.net, which is what we're talking about, there's also 1chan.us. It's a general purpose imageboard that's noteworthy for 1. requiring registration before posting (although you can still be anon if you want) and 2. using tags instead of boards. It's been literally unusable since 2017, and kind of had a crap community anyway.

Nothing terribly interesting, but warosu is no longer archiving new posts of /g/ and /tg/. Another sign of the times as /vt/ dwarfs every other board archived on warosu combined, so a choice was made.


Looks like there's a new (text only) archive on the block with 2005-08 content from that one archive.org guy's dump a couple years ago.


soyjak[.]party is the 4th largest english imageboard


I refuse to believe this, particularly because it is non-organic activity.


what do you mean by this?


It is "active", but it's activity is without substance since there is nothing resembling discussion. To consider it the largest anything is farcical.


4chan has very little substance, but we all consider it the largest 4chan imageboard.


4chan is the largest 4chan yes.


How do you know it? What are the other 3?



I think he means lots of bots and manual spamming. You wouldn't have called those old intl and related boards huge and active because they had hundreds or thousands of spam posts a day, would you?
Besides that, you then have to gauge the content of the posts and how the board is being used. Most people exclude places like hima, meguca or doushio when talking about activity because the posting format is a rapid-fire chat room atmosphere where a full sentence can be rare to find. It's an apple and oranges comparison towards more traditional places with multiple threads focused on different subjects.
I don't think I could compare it against other imageboards for these reasons.


4chan can at least have substance


based on what?


posts per day. whatever your guys' opinions are on "what counts", objectively speaking, its the 4th largest.


So what are the other 3?


why doesnt someone make a list based off averaged-out PPD over the course of a year~?


Don't know and don't care to find it. You're the one who brought it up.


Chill out. I didnt bring it up. Stop being so uptight and rude


Sorry. Didn't mean to come off like that. I just mean I searched for it and couldn't find it and I literally don't care to search anymore.


are you excluding sites? from a glance these seem faster or similar to soyjak[.]:



Someone from Heyuri made a [Incomplete/WIP] timeline of anonymous bulletin boards


He should have left some form of contact.
I would like to give information about Brazilian imageboards.


Weird that they classified a bunch of imageboards as BBSs. I wonder why they did that or if that was just a mistake since it looks like there's two Western BBS categories for some reason.


Imageboards are BBS's..


I don't know what an IP/admin page thingie is supposed to mean...


Kind of a lame metric if you ask me. Spam aside, it doesn't account for posts per user. A small imageboard used by schizos who post all day every day is going to have more posts per day than a larger one with a more chilled-out community.

there influence has no limits


i'm glad there's a harapan thread up


newfag to kissu here. How familiar are you guys with that guy? Apparently this site is on his list of banned chans, and he's got some sort of a bounty linked whenever you type "kissu" on sites owned by his network. I ask this because he's being a megasperg on 4-ch and some other sites. What are the deets on this mysterious figger?


File:buttons.jpg (35.47 KB,601x601)

"That guy" did some weird form of advertising where he posted about himself in the happening thread here, people got annoyed and posted about some things he allegedly did, argued about it, and he hasn't been here since after claiming to be wrongfully portrayed. People though Heyuri was novel, and that's the extent of the influence outside of the occasional post in this thread. No one cares, and I doubt he does either.


>No one cares, and I doubt he does either.
Quite the contrary, he seems to care, a lot. He cares so much that he's obviously samefagging in several threads, that all started with him advertising his rinky dink network. I wouldn't even care enough to ask about him if it wasn't for the fact that he's invading several small spaces I enjoy posting on, with his shady imageboard "business". I've seen his type of personality in other people before. I've seen him raid in action, in a server that has nothing to do with imageboards, and used alts and did it several times. Then when this shit comes back to haunt him, he acts like it's all slanderous lies evil people are telling.


Well, at any rate, if he has any illusions of grandeur, his reach doesn't extend here. Kissu has pretty good spam mitigation and competent, active moderation.


Well, you've ran into the name filter so you know part of it already. The general idea around here was that it seemed to be a whole bunch of manufactured drama without any coherent connections to anything. I don't have any hard feelings towards him or his users.
I agree with the other guy that heyuri seems very nice.


ayy, I finished that mission two days ago


This post is just a lie. Not only do I not own a discord account or have participated in a raids, you seem to have completely bought into the falsehood that I think imageboards are a business. I dont, nor have i ever claimed such a thing. I dont advertise "my network" really, the 4-ch thread was relevant to the topic, and I deliberately avoided posting links to the software I designed that was being discussed. You havent "seen me" anywhere, just because someone puts on a username "that guy" doesnt mean its me.

This whole situation has made me quite annoyed recently, especially when people make spam posts or raids in my name. I have absolutely 0 interest in committing raids, because as you can see here, they just come right back and harm my reputation.

Something about my "incorrect" way of speaking and my small amount of knowledge about the ettiquites of a foreign board just makes me seem more annoying than im trying. None of this helps when made compacted by a person whos associated in this site.. who self-proclaimed goal is to "drive me off the internet"

My message must keep getting lost during my convey-point to others. If I can find someone who is more PC and who has a better grasp of the english language, and one who does not have a poor reputation, than I would hope they can take my place and become face for many awesome softwares and services that are planned.

I never made a post where "its me", but this is an appropritate time. This thread has been pissed on .. Sorry...

File:qa.jpg (280.02 KB,2560x778)

It also has 3 threads left.


This /qa/ thing and some discussion about it made me think that hiro must be the only one permitted to delete boards and his lack of presence is leading to some minor issues. I think it's too early to say /qa/ will be deleted, but its current state now joins /qb/ the April Fool's board and /asp/ the alternative sports board that had turned into a wrestling shitposting board.
For those who may be unaware, /qa/ was frozen back in 2017 for a few weeks. People assumed it was deleted for good, but it came back. However, I feel I should stress that hiro was a pretty regular poster on it until late 2019 so it's possible he was the one that solely decided it should stay.


yeah, I just noticed that. it's like mods are trying to say "these two threads (not counting the sticky) are the only ones that aren't complete shit" lol
I hope /qa/ comes back as a meta board and soyjak is banned. soyquoting is textbook shitposting, which is breaking a global rule, and should be banned on all boards save a few like [s4s].


leave [s4s] alone, they already lost their brackets, haven't they gone through enough?

After nanochan declining to the point where most of its traffic was from a single /pol/ RPer talking to himself, the admin suddenly showed up:


Who could have forseen that curating a board to be a cesspool of spam would result in this? Whatever occured was as much the staffs fault as it was the shitposters.


why does 4chan not support mp4 video?
it's older and more widely supported than webm


mp4 is bloated as hell, so much space for so littyle. May have been other reasons, I think that was the main one.


The difference isn't as big as you make it sound. And if some paternal instinct of video quality is the reason why is there no vp9 support?
4chan has file size limit so I don't see why rapeape or moot cares if people want to upload shorter x264 videos with same size.


i don't know if that's their reasoning but aside from the supposedly higher efficiency (vp8 isn't that much better than h264, and vp9 and AV1 still aren't allowed for some reason) there's the fact that the webm container is far more stricter when it comes to what kind of things you can put in it, meanwhile you can encode 10bit h264 mp4 videos which most browsers will have trouble with (I can't play them in firefox for example)


Since /qa/ was put on hold the soijak shitposting has gone down 95%. Some boards are far more tolerable since you don't risk someone posting those disgusting images as much.


vp8 isn't better than h264 at all, it's basically a copy of h264 with the stuff they thought patent holders could win a lawsuit over removed


*on a technical level, at least. In general Google's VP8 encoder is more likely to degenerate into blockiness than a good H264 encoder at the same filesize. Being supposedly patent-free may be an advantage, but that's all up to courts and lawyers. Some places just don't recognize software patents.


1 week since 4/qa/ was frozen. Still frozen


3 more to go if repeat.


Still no confirmation from anything credible, but some websites like 4chan itself are pretty sure that Lowtax has died.
I don't follow all the gossip and drama stuff, but I remember laughing a lot at his articles 20 years ago, and of course some kid from there made some imageboard at some point.


I never used SA even once personally. Didn't like forums that much even back when they were the norm, nor IRC. Imageboards were my destiny.


4chan's global news post is credible. Has 4chan staff ever lied?


all the bux in the world couldn't save him.........


Many people who knew him considered his issues with domestic violence. His departure from SA was marred by court cases. Wonder if death will lead him to ruin or people will just remember him as a popular forum owner.

The title of the board hasn't changed after 2 weeks. Guess it will remain forever as the 2D/Random board, even if it's frozen.


It's been that way even after everyone here left anyways. 4chanX dev probably never gonna change it because it's not important to begin with.

Another update on nanochan. Since >>80033 things seemed to have improved a little, probably due to endofunctor, the admin, showing interest in the site again, reducing the possibility of it being down for long periods. Endofunctor has made a few minor improvements to the site.

The /pol/ schizo mentioned in >>80033 started leaking out of /pol/ and posting on other boards. This appears to have gotten the attention of the mods who have started deleting most of his threads on /pol/.

Most recently endofunctor has made a post proposing changes in how the site is moderated, in the hope of improving the site's quality.

Not really news but it's funny seeing those soyjak faggots get raided by smug anime girls.



nice post


/jp/-tan is such a strange thing. /jp/ isolationist people hated it and indeed it's associated with people outside of the board, but as a character I think it's a pretty good design. It's most strongly associated with [s4s] which didn't exist at the time of the character's creation, but my theory of its association is the nijuira-seeking people of /jp/ that moved to the board so many years ago.


The 10 million post was a soyjak


I agree with the oddity around it. But /jp/ itself doesn't really exist anymore so who could really care what people give it as a mascot.


>it's associated with people outside of the board
I would have thought all board-tans were created by the users of said board, is that not the case?


I think that design was created in /v/ or /a/. I'm not sure how far back that design goes but I think there were different earlier designs. I think the closest thing to a board-tan that was indeed created in /jp/ was meido.


There was also other websites for the whole 4chan house thing, and the artists were definitely not anons.


she was designed by old /v/ drawfag. three angled blue or something like this

4chan's really starting to crack down on the soyjak kids, to the point where they're doling out permanent bans for posting it on certain boards. I'm actually surprised how proactive they're being about it.

Tohnochan seems to be more active than I remember it being even a few years ago.


anyone have copy or summary? seems to be deleted now


Summarized from memory:
OP was about developer issues with the site
Admin made a post saying something along the lines of 'I don't even give a shit anymore, if you want an archive do it yourself' in response to a large loss of thumbnails from server issues.
Some people asked if database dumps would be coming, but since /dev/ is gone I doubt it. Site will just go idle and not fix issues in the future.

Hopefully it was archived on something, but it's unlikely that anyone with effort still uses 4chan's archives.

As promised, endofunctor has locked nanochan's /pol/ board and removed it from the board list. He has also written new rules guidelines for the site.


For reference, the previous rules:


Nothing changed, cancer is still there.
What a disappointment, not that I expected much. Nanochan is dead, let it go.

who is this ¨V¨ guy I keep seeing is he like a virgin lol


not after all those nights with the /qa/ boys theyre not


this is the list as it is
the other list went to shit for some reason


A guy on 3chan posted a big text archive torrent from 2004-2009 4chan, but it might majorly overlap with the dump from the archive.org guy that was already converted into that sage.moe site. The "new" bits would be the beginning and end, naturally.


wish I could be happy about this but I'm much more distraught over losing yuki.la's images; few others seem to have what that admin possessed.


I miss my home


So, /qa/ died and the happening+meta threads population haven't migrated anywhere?


4chan happenings threads migrated to /trash/


Didn't know that, nice


There's imageboard/internet meta on kissu and other imageboards now and then, but for specifically something on 4chan I don't think it went anywhere. It wasn't on /qa/ the past few years either, just contained in the happenings thread.
Maybe you could use archives to search for active threads since they're always scraping. It would work for boards like /v/ since "v" isn't a word people use, but you're screwed with boards like /a/. Maybe do a search for OPs only with "4chan" for more general discussion?
As for the /trash/ happenings thread, it was good for a couple days, a return to proper form in fact. But, then it got linked and it's actually worse than it was on /qa/.


Nanochan seems to have been recovering a little. Also the admin finally removed hikari after he blatantly ignored the instructions in >>80676.

Hello, Nyanonymous.
I know you're here and I need answers to some of the things you did last year. Why did you disappear from nanochan after you went on a mass deletion spree with the reason "chemo" and deleted everything related to a specific controversial topic related to children?
What does "chemo" even mean?

Please don't come back to nanochan. You can reply to me here.

t. cancerous avatarfag from nanochan who tried to start a failed anime club there and you helped running the cytube stream where we saw Madoka and Haruhi together


Total outsider here. I used nanochan like 4 times, strictly to look at and curate Nazi content. Nothing of substance ever cropped up on the board, It was out of the way and not worth opening up Tor each time I felt like checking it, and the only good thread was a thread about OpenBSD and device security (its probably gone by now, RIP). I found several websites that linked to CP hosts or aggregators, and it generally seemed like the portal to the same deep web anyone would lurch it in with at first glance. Just another waste of time for the terminally online.


This was fun. There were many complaints of not being able to see anything or remove them.

/qa/ still has the christmas theme and music


cant flippin believe the weeb mafia won


wtf I love that guy now


Usually a post needs to be made after a CSS change is made for it to go through, and of course people can't post on it. I'll have to wait until 4chan next crashes or it gets refreshed for whatever reason.


I got to see dozens of CP threads be spammed on their main board (/soy/) a couple of times, but only because somebody on 4/qa/ and /trash/ alerted me of them. The spam lasted between 30 minutes and one hour on average. However, some days ago I saw single threads be up for 8 hours, so it's possible these were the cause of the party's deplatforming.

Happens fairly often, specially on sticky threads on blue boards.


only the very most quality boards would get an extra helping of fun.


the soy spinoff is back and soot confirmed it was down because of a cp report, supposedly it was this guy from 4/g/


This made me chuckle a bit although is a frogposter.


There's a script spreading on 4chan named Third Eye that allows people to share images to other script users based on a booru filename, which is itself based on its md5 hash. I don't know any specifics about it, but if you want to look at it, /g/'s /cumg/ general is its origin.


I have known this for a while and they also made some scripts to embed music and videos in image files. This ura image concept is pretty interesting but I refrained myself from mentioning it because too many posters were pissed off by the name of the general.

MD5 link:
When you enter a thread it will search for filenames containing a booru MD5 hash, if it founds a compatible MD5 hash from the filename it replaces the posted image with the images taken from that MD5 hash.
A MD5 link will only affect it's filename, thus preserving the original size of an image. If downloaded it will download just the original image, but with MD5 name

The script will Embed a file onto another, so in the end you will have an image with another embedded image.
A Embedded file Will affect it's total size, because you are adding it to the original image. If downloaded you will download the original image with the added file, meaning you now downloaded two files together. But you can post it later, and will show that extra embedded file.
Only PEE and Media Embedder have embedding. Cunnysoft's Third eye does not have this feature, and you will not be able to see these embedded files while using Cunnysoft's third eye.


It's back

4chan had it's four billionth post recently.

4chan must be amazing if it can get stats like that!

Soy spinoff got deleted again for cp, now one of the news channels about soyjaks is saying that the host deleted all the data and the owner, soot, is restoring from a 5 month old backup


>one of the news channels about soyjaks
Why do you need more than one channel about this garbage? In fact, why do you need a single channel for it?


Ironic when half the posts in this general are about that kind of garbage...


its up


What's up?


Supposedly this was broken by 4chan dev shortly after --and perhaps because of-- people posting files with embedded cp in it. Maybe that 4chan github page thing with desuwa has something listed in it? I don't know programming so maybe it's not listed at all.
Also their general on /g/ was purged.

My dick after seeing you.


4chan has had filters against crude forms of steganography -- such as appending a file to an image or putting a file in a large auxiliary chunk -- for some time now. Before the filters, appended files were occasionally used to distribute CP, but more often used to distribute books or music. Although against 4chan's rules, you can still post hidden content using slightly more sophisticated forms of steganography, such as the classic method of changing the last bit of every pixel.

As for the eye thing, it's not embedding files in the image, but just putting an MD5 hash in the filename. In order to use that to distribute CP, someone would have to be hosting the CP in a well-known location searchable by MD5 hash. If you posted CP to the boorus, it would be deleted and the hash banned. So there's little reason to block it, and if 4chan did block it anyway, it would be very obnoxious, because there are lots of files posted with their hash as the filename.


there are two scripts, one is what you mention, the other actually embeds things


File:ackchyually.png (20.78 KB,700x700)

There are 4 scripts and at least 3 methods:

– Third Eye: the original who introduced the MD5 method. Never supported any embedding method.
– PNGExtraEmbed/PEE/lolipiss: the one who introduced embedding and became the most popular of the bunch, also the most bloated.
– Media Embedder: like PEE but written in pure Javascript. Supports the same things as the other two.
– mrq's fork of Third Eye: added support for catbox embedding after regular embedding was blocked.

– MD5 linking: works by replacing a normal image's filename with the MD5 of a file hosted in a list of boorus booru, then downloading the external file and displaying it next to the "native" one. All scripts support this method.
– File embedding: There were different methods for each format. Only PEE and Media Embedder support this method.
–– PNG embedding: works by appending the file in the last IDAT chunk. Metadata information is stored in a tEXt chunk.
–– WEBM embedding: the file is embedded in a SimpleTag tag, with a TagName of C00M and a TagBinary that contains the file content.
–– GIF: the embedded data is contained in an application extension chunk, usually right after the NETSCAPE extension.
–– JPG: not supported because 4chan re-encodes files in that format to stripe out their metadata.
– Catbox embedding: similar to regular embedding, but instead of whole files there's only links to catbox.moe embedded, decreasing the "host" file's size by a lot and making it harder to be detected by 4chan's filters. Only PEE and mrq's fork of Third Eye support these methods.
