The Official Meta Thread
Discuss here everything about the site, the software, the staff, etc.

Firstly, yes board creation is open but don't go crazy. I Will disable it at ~20 boards and allow exceptions beyond that for boards I find personally interesting or boards that need a bunker. When it comes to managing your board, I'll repeat what I said in another thread:
>Follow site rules, keep the content legal, don't skirt the line.
If you lack the time and staff to manage board, don't start one. Global moderation here works to keep the site running and out of trouble, not to run your board for you.
There has been some new activity since

It does have a duration but it doesn't really make it clear that its a video.
I think its possible to add a "play button" type overlay to videos with CSS alone, or maybe I should add a 🔊 icon next to the file information.

Yeah as long as the image container has something that identifies it as a video, it's easy to add stuff on top with ::after. I think there's some esoteric way to read the filename extension with CSS too but I don't remember how it works.
Looks like this website already has a dataset for it, so if I made a custom style for a jschan website it would be just this:
language: css
.post-file-src[data-type="video"]::after {
	content: "▶";
	display: inline-block;

Works great, and i can add some javascript to hide it when the video is expanded.
Mind if i add it to jschan?

No! This CSS style™ is ©me, I'll license it to you for $799

Jokes aside, go ahead, the reason I post these is just in case they'll be useful to someone else.

Stephen Lynx is a cunt.
Hope you manage to make this software better so I don't have to deal with the trannycoder and his butt plug addons.

OK just added this, you should definitely refresh/clear cache to get the latest scripts and css. I made it use a normal html dropdown so it should open in whatever the native UI for that is in your browser, so not so hard to click the options on mobile either :) There is still a big with the appearance on firefox mobile I have noticed, working on fixing that.
Alongside this came the setting icon in the top right (for users with scripts). It just has themes there right now but I will add more things to it eventually.

Idea: we should price-match Lynxchan + 16chan in the short run, and NPFchan + Lainchan + OpenIB in the long run.
It's called AIDS.
>some disease?
probably a yeast (Candida) infection. if you brush your teeth daily, u aren't likely ever going to get it.
Could someone list all the bugs from Lynxchan just for the keks?

Can we have an open discussion about these abusive assholes and how to keep their slimy paws off the webring?

I know there are 3 sites listed in your blacklist here, are there other known sites these tranny assholes are also running? There appears to be a shill post on floridachan. Is this one of their sites too?

*webring, not wearing
Spacechan is comfy and actually active. Which only very few altchans can say.
Replies: >>389 >>420
why do you think whether you are 'comfy' is important in this matter. the slimy fuck is evil.
Replies: >>390
Because me being comfy is the most important thing, anything else is irrelevant.
Replies: >>420
Getting fucked by the admins negates any sort of "comfy" you feel.

For those crazy enough to try installing jschan, you can get some help directly from me here.
Also there is no database update scripts yet, so you will have to pay attention to this thread and be careful before making updates that change databse schema.

The full error was 'Cannot find module 'bcrypt' by the way, which is weird because I did run 'apt-get install bcrypt' beforehand and verified bcrypt was installed.
My imageboard I will use for testing:

Glad you got it working. Downgrading works because they provide prebuilt binaries for older versions so you don't need all the dependencies to build from source.

Yeah damn I forgot that. I will put the fix alongside an update soon when I cleanup the gulpfile a bit.

Alright cool.
How do I rebuild after git pulling an update?
Replies: >>419
1. Goto your jschan folder
2. git pull
3. (sometimes) If there are new options in the example config files, you will have to update your config files to include them.
4. gulp
5. pm2 reload all
Then pages will rebuild next time you visit them.

gulp updates everything like css, scripts, images, removes the html and json files, etc. If you only want to update specific things, you can use different tasks:

I figured out why GIFs had a noticeable delay when processing. Issue has been fixed and gifs should process as fast as any other file again.
good news thanks
Replies: >>213
It was actually kind of funny why. Basically GraphicsMagick was being really slow to "identify" the image. Identify gets information like the size, resolution, format, color, etc. For GIFs it was doing an identify on every frame so it would take normal image identify time * number of frames. I previously changed this with thumbnailing because it tries to do the same thing (makes a thumbnail of every frame) but it never occured to me that identify would have the same problem. Thankfully the GM wrapper I am using makes it easy, I literally just changed the filename to have an array index on it like filename.gif[0] which means to just take the first frame.

Nice work. Good thing it was such a simple fix tbh.

Just testing the upload progress script. When you make a post the "New thread" or "New reply" button will show a percentage of upload. For posts without files it usually just skips right to 100, but its pretty useful when uploading files.

Also when posting in a thread, the page wont refresh when you post, it will show up the same way other posts arrive live (through the websocket) and scroll down and highlight your post.

This applies for users with javascript enabled. Everything works how it did as usual for noscript users,

Fun fact: Starfish actually do this; cut them into pieces and they will regenerate a new starfish from each piece.

You sure that's the original bro?

Kek. It's a long-standing meme that someone edits his stuff to include a star of david to imply the kikes were behind w/e the comic was lampooning. for example, cloudflare in this case would have (((BIG))) one. that's 'the original'. Ben himself plays along with it when he used to dump a new one on /pol/.
Replies: >>210
Hehe, went over my head. I have seen some edits and the pieces from triggered journalism interns but seems like Ben doesn't care too much. The star of david is already implied in most cases so im not surprised about him playing along.

Hey there, so I noticed that I was clicking the wrong items to lock and pin threads. I was actually locking and bumplocking the threads instead. I only realized it afterwards. Looking at the layout I understand why I was confused.

Just applied some changes and rebuilt all pages to fix the action footer on them all. It looks the same for me between brave and firefox now so hopefully it is the same in other browsers.
Basically brave for some reason doesnt support display:flex in the expanding details tag so I had to nest another div. 

You might want to clear cache or ctrl+f5 (force refresh) to make sure you get the updated css

It will refresh the necessary pages now when you change the settings, and instead there is a ratelimit on changing board settings.
