What do you think? Should we make some?

2 Name: bps : 2014-03-06 13:43 ID:Heaven

Like /code/ has, or like /dqn/, or something else? Can you elaborate or give an example? I'm open to the idea if they look good and fit!

3 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2014-04-09 10:53 ID:5DtlCWfK

I can see 日本語 getting active again now that /lang/@world4ch is no longer in use. Maybe we can do a few banners for more popular boards or we can submit just a few examples ITT

4 Name: bps!!+u1+mB+S (Admin) : 2014-04-12 15:52 ID:Heaven

I'm glad to see /nihongo/ getting some use!

I think it is more suitable for the discussion for each board's banner to take place on the board itself (since perhaps the users won't otherwise see it, or maybe they don't even want one!).

I will start with /nihongo/ as a trial for what is a relatively active board on this site (ignoring DQN) and see how it goes. If it's successful then we'll move onto other boards and see if there's any interest.

As always, this process may take a while.

5 Name: bps!!+u1+mB+S (Admin) : 2014-04-12 16:12 ID:Heaven

Thread made: http://4-ch.net/nihongo/kareha.pl/1397319052/l50

I do fear that the recent activity was just a short burst, though...

6 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2014-04-23 18:19 ID:Q4SMeL22

The "Ask Questions" thread ported over from world4ch might drive in some of the old users once they become aware of its new location.

However, if you guys want to see Japanese posters back on /nihongo/ you should consider developing support for showing flags or at least text displaying the poster's location.

From those I've had the pleasure of discussing the important topic of Internet BBS posting with, knowing the nationality of other posters is one of their favorite features.

2ch portal update please? (14)

1 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2014-04-04 03:16 ID:5Ux6B65x

The 2 Channel — English Navigator page currently reads:

> ... Please send corrections, additions, requests, and the like to Squeeks. If you are requesting a new board addition, please give both the name and the section under which it is listed. A suggested translation or explanation is appreciated.

However, Squeeks is gone. Many board links are old. There are a few new boards as well. Do you need specific suggestions on this matter, or is it something you can accomplish on your own?

5 Name: bps!!+u1+mB+S (Admin) : 2014-04-13 18:24 ID:Heaven

I spent the afternoon working on it and all should be up to date now. Check it out: http://services.4-ch.net/2chportal/ (Make sure you properly reload the page, since frames can be weird. It has changed, trust me.)

For reference, the old version is now kept here: http://services.4-ch.net/2chportal/0.4

I've removed dead links, added the new boards, updated all the old links, and made a few style changes. I also did the necessary things to make it HTML5 compliant (except frames, which are apparently deprecated - I will fix this another time though).

The only outstanding problem is that some of the translations are still not 100% (surrounded by question marks, etc.). If anybody wants to contribute better translations I will happily add them. In the mean time I think it is fit for purpose. I might also ask a friend who knows Japanese to give some attention to it - we'll see.

I hope you are satisfied with it.

6 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2014-04-14 03:47 ID:5Ux6B65x

It's lovely, thank you for taking the time.

As for translations, so far I've noticed that ほのぼのnews+, in the news section, still says femalenews+, which is the title of a very old board, from perhaps 2006 or so. So it's probably not really an error of translation, but rather an old oversight that no one discovered.

Also, Liaisons is misspelled.

7 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2014-04-14 06:48 ID:5Ux6B65x

Some new boards you missed (unless they were added between the time you updated it and now!?!):

in the Entertainment category:

in the Manga, Books, etc. category:

What should it be? Google Translate suggests "Heartwarming News+"...

>>7
Actually they were there all along, just commented out with <!-- -->, which explains why my automated script didn't pick them up! I've uncommented them now so they should be visible.

Heartwarming News+ sounds good.

Thanks for all your hard work!

10 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2014-04-14 16:28 ID:5Ux6B65x

on second thought, under Liaisons, the word ほのぼの was translated as Pleasant. So if you care about being consistent, you could do Pleasant News+. But Heartwarming is nice too.

[User input] Please post your thoughts on these pressing matters (7)

1 Name: bps : 2014-03-06 14:11 ID:Heaven

If you have strong (or weak) opinions on any of the following things, I would like to hear what you think!

  1. Probably some of you have noticed that DQN takes ages to fully load. This is because the old hit counter image (the frying pan thingy) has stopped working. Should I remove it altogether? Replace it with a new one? If so, what, and does it matter that the counter is reset? Maybe I could just put a fake one there as a sort of memorial, with some fake number? In any case the loading thing bothers me a lot.
  2. Is it time the default anonymous name on DQN is changed again? What would you like to see it changed to, if at all?
  3. Banners! Should we have a competition or something? Do you prefer things as they are? Please see this thread for more info: http://4-ch.net/req/kareha.pl/1393544046/
  4. Has anybody noticed any spam since the new year/change of server? Are you happy with the level of moderation (or lack thereof)?
  5. Any other thoughts/suggestions? Even super trivial ones.

I'll monitor this for a long time and act accordingly if people have any input.

2 Name: bps : 2014-03-29 12:53 ID:Heaven

A little progress:

  1. Removed the counter for now.
  2. It has been changed.

3 Name: bps : 2014-03-29 13:04 ID:Heaven

I also fixed some weird spacing in the footer of each board, since it has bothered me for years.

4 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2014-03-31 01:01 ID:4H2HqFPA

1. I'm glad you removed the counter. I think you should replace it with a fake one, with this guy inside the frying pan:
 _,,..,,,,_
./ ;' 3 `ヽーっ
l   ⊃ ⌒_つ
`'ー---‐'''''"

2. I'll post my opinions in the DQN thread!

3. We should collaboratively make a banner in true DQN fashion, like a song thread. Maybe I'll go start that thread now.

4. I don't visit anywhere else besides DQN, but /dqn/ seems to be pretty good right now.

5. The DQN archives are down (although still accessible via archive.org). Not sure if you can do anything about that. Also, thanks for all of your help!

5 Name: bps!!+u1+mB+S (Admin) : 2014-03-31 10:22 ID:Heaven

1. I tried for half an hour to do this but GIMP is terrible and I am terrible, so I failed. I would like to bring the counter back like that, though.
2-4. Good!
5. It should work as of a week ago. Let me know if there are still issues.

6 Name: Anonymous Gimp Wizard : 2014-04-06 16:16 ID:8HWQtS/P

>>5
I could probably make that. Can you link me to the old counter image? I couldn't find it with google.

7 Name: bps!!+u1+mB+S (Admin) : 2014-04-12 15:55 ID:Heaven

>>6
It's 8205 on http://ofuda.cc/sample.html if memory serves well.

I crossed out the bullet points linking people to /sexual/ rather than deleting them altogether, since it seems strange to remove all evidence of its existence. Also, do you think I should put an index page under /sexual/ saying "this board no longer exists", rather than just letting it throw a 404 error?

Is it possible to implement HTTPS for the brighter future? For example, these guys even offer a disgustingly free one: http://www.startssl.com/

It would be horrible if KGB, employer or some kind of international conspiracy discover that I read DQN all day. There are probably some other users who need this protection as well.

I notice that https://4-ch.net does work, but it loads a blank page and uses an outdated security certificate.

3 Name: bps : 2014-01-03 16:35 ID:Heaven

I will look into this, but if it's implemented it'd just be a self-signed certificate.

Don't self sign when there is either CACert or StartSSL.

I'm not keen on StartSSL because after a year you have to start paying, meaning we are back to square one. CACert looks promising - I will look into it.

[Handheld] The mobile reader support and requests thread (61)

1 Name: Squeeks : 2007-10-20 20:56 ID:IxY8cNNA

On a brief initial trial, currently food and japanese boards have a "mobile" version, which is pretty much stripped down and designed for people with phones, PDA's and other handheld devices that can browse mobile XHTML content. Right now I've done what I can without more rigourous testing since I haven't the means to test this on my own phone.

So please post any problems or requests you have. Screenshots are very helpful even if you haven't got a problem, so I can see how it looks like over a variety of devices.

Things I already know about at this point:

  • You can't reply to threads, or make new ones. It's pretty much "read only".

  • Post numbers have embedded javascript, as well as the "delete" button, both of which don't work.

  • Text maybe somewhat too large, and there is no CSS/looks boring.

Post too long. Click to view the whole post or the thread page.

What would people say to the idea of 4-ch merch? I've been wearing the organic fitted tee version of this one for a couple years by now, but why not open an official shop on some printing site like Zazzle, Spreadshirt and/or Cafepress to help pay for hosting bills?

Also, am I correct in my assumption that I don't need to ask permission before I print DQN-kun AA onto a shirt for myself? How about if I want to sell one with "http://4-ch.net/dqn/" printed on the front, and said AA on the back? Or DQN-kun bumper stickers? Do tanasinn.info and/or SAoVQ have any official merch outlets and/or plans to start them?
