There is no ID, just following text "Internal server error. Your ip was recognized as a known spammer" One range appears to be fully blacklisted with few more individual ip from other ranges.

Endchan Movie Corner Anonymous Global volunteer 01/26/2020 (Sun) 20:04 [Preview] No. 10923 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Came up on the apropos of the Christmas Special that we should hold a recurring "movie night", maybe on monthly basis. We just might do that.
The first occasion would be on the 8th of February (probably would be the 9th for Australians). One movie, and maybe two short videos, as an intro and outro, might be related to the movie itself, might not.

Right at this moment, I can't offer a more exact date, for all the timezones it is hard to plan. Was talk about 21:00 PST on the 8th which is 00:00 EST and 16:00 AET on the 9th. However this is too early for Europeans on Sunday. Maybe we could offer two streams with some gap between.
Also no titles yet.

So ideas, suggestions are welcomed.

Is there a way to post code without getting it fucked up by tags or colors? Just display the text as it was posted without any modifications or interpretation by the chan software.

The code tags do not prevent this.

the /dump/ board is vandalized, fix it please Anonymous 01/26/2024 (Fri) 16:26 [Preview] No. 19011 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
I would like to make use of the already existing /dump/ board
But the last owner purposely vandalized it with custom css, by making the input form unusable

The common input fields, like subject, name, mail, comment, etc, have a custom css making them display: none;
It's possible to circumvent that vandalism by browser direct css editing, but that doeasn't change the board is currently vandalized

My test attempt which confirmed the input form still works but it's vandalized by css

Can any admin or site moderator clear the css vandalism? And remove the previous person responsible for the vandalism?
There are also some leftovers of porn spam vandalism, in addition to the css vandalism, could the porn spam be removed too by a site mod?

On a side note, I wouldn't mind taking ownership of that board myself, but I'm still waiting for the confirmation email to validate my account, which isn't coming at all

(113.93 KB 870x425 op image spoiler bug.png)
I've reuploaded the custom spoiler image just in case (images stored in the database getting broken wasn't new), but the bug is still present on /dump/

Currently on /dump/:
-posts inside threads can be spoilered perfectly fine
example of regular post getting spoilered by mod-action: >>>/dump/1188
-op images instead remain unspoilered after action
example of op image not getting spoilered by mod-action: >>>/dump/1184 <- pictured, the site gives the notice that the image has been spoilered, but nothing really happens, and the image remains unspoilered

I've noticed the different layouts of your screenshots, makes me think this may be a browser compatibility issue, but it's strange, the spoilering of op images did work before, so it shouldn't be a browser compatibility issue, since nothing changed on my side in that regard.
I'll test the spoilering with a different browser just to be sure

Anonymous Admin 02/14/2024 (Wed) 19:32 [Preview] No.19117 del
We figured out spoilering is reserved for board staff, so that's not an error.
I don't think it's browser dependent.
What is the situation with spoilers now?
Do you have JS turned off?

Anonymous 02/14/2024 (Wed) 21:04 [Preview] No.19118 del
>What is the situation with spoilers now?
Nothing has changed for the better yet, OP images still can't be spoilered
>Do you have JS turned off?
I've tried to spoiler OP images both with and without JS, same result: I get a message that the image has been spoilered, but it's a false message as it remains unspoilered
I've also given a try with a different browser but it was a failure there too

If it's neither the browser, and neither the presence or absence of JS, what else could it be the reason? What other board specific settings are there which relate to spoilers?
Something has changed between 02/10/2024 and 02/06/2024 leading to this bug,
could it be a third party dependency inside the spoilering function which got updated by the third party library and which introduced some kind of incompatibility?
(i'm totally trying to guess, as i've no clue how the spoiler funcion is coded)

Anonymous 02/14/2024 (Wed) 22:58 [Preview] No.19119 del
Are you spoiling from "Moderate Thread" or somewhere else?

Anonymous 02/15/2024 (Thu) 12:48 [Preview] No.19123 del
The sequence of actions I do to spoiler an image are:
1) open the thread
2) click on "Moderate Thread", to enable the moderation actions
3) select the checkbox of the post to spoiler, in this case the OP post
4) click on the "Spoil files" button, from the actions panel at the page bottom (this action doesn't seem to require the captcha)
Then I get the "Files spoilered" confirmation message, then nothing happens
This same operation did work previously, these OP images were spoilered manually >>>/dump/432 >>>/dump/818 now it no longer works

Out of curiosity, there exist other places from where it's possible to spoiler, aside the "Moderate Thread" viewmode?

posters without id Anonymous 02/10/2024 (Sat) 01:36 [Preview] No. 19088 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Sometimes some posters don't have an id inside boards where every poster has ids
and it also appears that in the moderation pages those id-less posters have no informations, unlike other posters who do, so those id-less posters are immune to some moderation actions

is it a feature for some posters to be id-less?
or is it a bug?
regardless if it's a bug or not, this is a weakness in the moderation tools, is there any way to resolve this?

Anonymous 02/10/2024 (Sat) 01:47 [Preview] No.19089 del
Here two examples of id-less posters in a board with ids enabled

to be more specific, every post, when looked at in the moderation mode, has an hash of the ip address
the id-less posts lack any hashed ip, they are basically ip-less, so it's impossible to ban them

this isn't the first time i've seen these odd information-lacking posts on boards, they stand out pretty much usually, but i can't find more examples at the moment

is this an expected behaviour for the site? or what could be causing this occurrence?

Anonymous 02/10/2024 (Sat) 03:33 [Preview] No.19090 del
Posters using tor and posting through the onion domain will not have ids or IP hashes.

Anonymous 02/10/2024 (Sat) 08:56 [Preview] No.19091 del
You can disable posting from Tor in the board settings.

Anonymous Admin 02/10/2024 (Sat) 10:19 [Preview] No.19092 del
As posters noted above those are users posting via Tor or Lokinet. They don't get IDs or IP hashes, they are all count as 1 poster (on the whole site) and they aren't included the number of posters on the board page.
BOs can disallow the use of Tor on their board, that option was included in case of certain attacks. I encourage you not to choose using it, unless it's absolutely necessary.

When you try to post you get a ban alert. There should be an input field and it says "Write your appeal". Write it down normally what's happened, why you shouldn't be banned. Write it short. Then send it. Your ban might be lifted or might not.

Keep in mind that imageboard content were intended to be ephemeral, and while small chans (including Endchan) can keep data for a long time, they aren't safe storage places. Tho perhaps safer than the fashionable normie cloud storage...
We don't really touch even abandoned boards, because we know users expect their stuff to be here when (if) they return.

Anonymous 02/01/2024 (Thu) 12:08 [Preview] No.19062 del
So looking at this in an empirical way,
the current record for file retention is: 6 years
(from 2024 to 2018)

And that time is currently limited to 6 years only because of site bugs/errors and not because of any site policy

yep, it's a stretch to rely on imageboards for archiving, pure archives have better file duration, bigger archiving space, and better organizing tools, but also less public visibility, and often also stricter content policies actively removing content
it's a trade off, as for many things

>We don't really touch even abandoned boards, because we know users expect their stuff to be here when (if) they return.
That's something which is always nice to see, as it's becoming rarer to find online old sites and ancient messages from people even decades ago, internet has become a place focusing only on the now, with no past nor future
