because BPS added it with no prior warnings. Like a UFO crashing in your backyard andsomehow nobody noticed.

What the fuck, I don't even know. Since it wasn't my doing, it must be a bug in wakaba. Unfortunately I can't figure out what the problem is right now. Sadly all of the files were also removed from the /src directory.

I'm not happy about this at all. Please accept my apologies. I will try and identify the problem.

[SSL][HTTPS]I'd love to access 4-ch.net securely.[Encryption][Using 4-ch at work] (11)

1 Name: 🔰!ESpeoN/nPA : 2011-04-14 14:32 ID:zAPdWXcp

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.

Any updates on this, Squeaks?

I notice that https://4-ch.net does work, but it loads a blank page and uses an outdated security certificate.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

Here's an idea for how 4Channel can become an NNTPChan frontend while still keeping images disabled (6)

1 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2015-10-18 19:09 ID:KJs+FKId

We get the users of other NNTPChan frontends to tag images that are necessary for the understanding of the post. A link to the image will be put before the text of the post if it's tagged. It will not be shown if it isn't tagged.

2 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2015-10-20 01:33 ID:Heaven

Why do we want to become a NNTPChan frontend again?

Use a service like http://onion.link or https://onion.to

Clearly DQN should be more VIP Quality (32)

1 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2015-10-22 14:44 ID:KUUUWSTx

I have a few suggestions:

We should copy 2channel "soko" and "shuffle" commands.
Soko throws the thread down to the bottom.
Shuffle throws the thread in a random position.

Its genial!

23 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2015-11-21 17:18 ID:Heaven

>>22
I feel the same way about shuffle, up til now people haven't really been able to mess up the thread order that much, and giving them the ability to randomly place threads at a new position in the full list seems like a huge step towards making threads undiscovered. I feel if these are implemented they should both be limited to the first page and not the whole thread index.

Thanks for the feedback guys. According to >>18 the feature is more unpopular than it is popular, so I am inclined to hold back for now. At any rate, I think that >>23 closely matches my opinion on the matter.

My conclusions so far:

  1. if any of the two features are implemented, it would only be on DQN
  2. both soko and shuffle, if implemented, would only force to position 10 and randomly place between position 1 and 10, respectively. That is, it would not apply to the entire thread list.
  3. soko appears to be more open to abuse, by being repeatedly used to silence a particular thread. I don't particularly relish the necessity to police this, either.

31 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2015-12-26 00:54 ID:x62LSCuk

>soko appears to be more open to abuse, by being repeatedly used to silence a particular thread

I'm not sure if there's anything to silence on DQN

32 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2016-01-02 03:22 ID:Heaven

Since "Nuke DQN" is the most popular choice in that poll, maybe this would be a better idea: If someone posts on DQN with "nuke" in the link field, nuke the board.

Write me a list of things broken and wrong with the site. (84)

1 Name: Squeeks 2006-02-09 17:49 ID:RQUdcHCi

It seems everytime I bring up a big problem, 4-ch'ers think it's a good time to go ahead and blurt out all the little problems, so on Monday I get some time off work. So that means, I'll have some time to fix minor things, etc. So, list for me, in as much detail necessary all the things that are broken, missing, not working, changes etc and I'll try to get them all done on Monday. I might also look at taking down the site for a while, upgrading all the boards to the latest copy of Kareha etc.

And please, don't shit this thread up, I will be liberal in deleting posts that are blatantly offtopic or stupid.

[Handheld] The mobile reader support and requests thread (62)

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.

This has been a controversial subject for a long time.

  1. I'm sympathetic to the idea of archiving all the existing threads which haven't been active for 6-12 months or so.
  2. Merging boards is a big move. I have been considering other ways to solve these problems of inactivity. Should they fail, then maybe we can try merging boards.

Stay tuned...

12 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2015-09-29 03:44 ID:QjANyrky

My fear is that removing/merging the boards would just make the site 'feel' smaller and even more uncomfortable in the long run. Without posters, even one board will seem slow. Even DQN.

Sadly, the only solution is advertising somewhere OTHER than 4chan. The only thing they have to offer any more are replies about how this place, surprise, isn't 4chan.

I don't mind the museum atmosphere, not posting sometimes can be a virtue.

IIchan is dead, that thing that replaced it is pretty dead too.
I doubt drastic changes to the site will encourage consistent long term activity, that will only come with a resurgence in the interest in 2ch style bbs in English.
No way to fight the decline in interest really other than becoming tastemakers.
