Someone on the general board suggested this, and I thought it was a good idea.

It has a post report feature

3 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2016-05-21 23:50 ID:Xl7DkcQP

This seems like it would be a pretty good idea if there were a way to transer posts.

Isn't transferring databases easy (although it takes long)?

5 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2016-05-25 00:57 ID:Heaven

Yes, but Kareha doesn't use a database, it uses flat text files.

6 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2016-05-25 12:06 ID:Ap9oCN2Q

This would be nice, Python is great.

7 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2016-05-27 18:30 ID:PqmacdgB

That doesn't really scale well, does it? I know it's not likely we'll get that much more traffic, but it seems better to think about it now rather than regret it later.

Meta talk about the Imageboard (16)

1 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2015-10-10 02:51 ID:qhL369M6

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

Why don't we make sage invisible like on Futaba Channel?

7 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2016-01-08 02:43 ID:K5XQw+Rh

Why was the flash thread (137) deleted? It was on page one and not the oldest living thread.

8 Name: bps!!+u1+mB+S (Admin) : 2016-01-11 03:01 ID:Pc6xxt3O

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.

What? You mean 4chan, right?

11 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2016-02-19 06:26 ID:rHXmgKVK

You should amend the channel4guide to talk about thread deletion on the imageboard and how not to make new threads without a clear topic.

Futaba channel has some pretty terrible ideas too, like post upvoting.

12 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2016-02-19 14:16 ID:Pmi/eN/9

Never have I seen upvotes on futaba, what boards are there upvoating? futaba's code hasn't been updated in over 10 years. Also, nijiura /img2/ has sage.

Are you joking?

15 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2016-04-24 05:21 ID:8/lQEWwU

It's internally updated. They added picture replies a few years ago, and they added a catalog mode in 2005 that isn't in the open source. Also, the "upvotes" are just a button that says "Yeah!" essentially, which prevents a bunch of retards from posting stuff like "QUOTED FOR TRUTH" or "I agree" like they mindlessly do on 4chan. I actually like the idea.

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:

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 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.

4 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2014-01-09 03:30 ID:Heaven

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

5 Name: bps : 2014-01-24 12:15 ID:Heaven

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.

I would like to do a server-wide update before sorting out SSL. I'll try and get it all done over the Christmas break. Meanwhile there might be website downtime.

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?

3 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2015-10-20 21:58 ID:Heaven

>>2 why not?

4 Name: bps!!+u1+mB+S (Admin) : 2015-10-28 02:52 ID:sVJJHA51

None of the non-Tor links in that post worked for me, so I don't really have any idea what you are talking about. Care to explain, and also answer >>2's question more robustly?

5 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2015-10-30 11:12 ID:KJs+FKId

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

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.

28 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2015-11-22 15:20 ID:Heaven

I don't know but I think >>27 is brain damage, considering it thinks >>15 had any intent of asking a question.

29 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2015-11-22 18:59 ID:Heaven

I'm sorry, that was not the answer we were looking for. For review, a question is something that ends in a question mark. For example, this is a question? Please try again another day.

30 Name: bps!!+u1+mB+S (Admin) : 2015-12-25 04:12 ID:miAJHmVv

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.
