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.

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.

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).

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

 No.74452

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.

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.

 No.74472

>>74468
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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

I'm not sure exactly how to feel.

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.

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:

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

>>77091
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.

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.

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.

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.)

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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)

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.

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.

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/.

Just quoting this because it's related to nanochan.

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.

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.

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.

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.

 No.83146

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.

>>4165
>>83145
>I don't know any specifics about it
See https://git.coom.tech/futalover69/how-to-use-the-eye (fixed URL to bypass filter -mod)

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

Embedding:
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.

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.

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

 No.83437

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

>>83433
There are 4 scripts and at least 3 methods:

Scripts:
– 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.

Methods:
– 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.
