[Suggestion] New Board: "Observations About This Website Being Dead" (29)

1 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2019-05-12 07:07 ID:lYWjQYeb

On a fairly regular basis, General receives posts claiming that 4-ch is dead or dying, or asking about how to prevent 4-ch from dying, or asking if anyone still posts. Seeing as it seems that the demand to discuss this topic is great enough, it would be nice to see this get it's own board. In fact, it may turn out to be the fastest board on 4-ch yet!
Preliminary calculations from the finest scientists over at the Elitist Superstructure suggest that an "Observations About This Website Being Dead" board would receive roughly 238% more posts than all the leading textboards combined! It would be practically criminal for 4-ch to not pursue such a wonderful opportunity for growth.

I must insist, for the good of our thriving community, that such a board is created immediately and that all "dead board" threads currently found on General be moved there with haste.

20 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2022-10-30 10:36 ID:EhlYyVWF

24 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2023-02-20 08:07 ID:gqVJ4thh

It’s not about looking at the boards. Sometimes someone just wants to see the top recently bumped threads across the whole site. Some boards are pretty quiet so the top posts can still be relatively less active. It’s just easier to have one webpage showing the hot threads in once place.

[Suggestions] [Feedback] New new management [Exciting!] (236)

BPS has passed the site on to me, as you might have seen. Please use this thread for...

  • reporting anything that seems to be broken
  • any feature requests or other suggestions you might have
  • feedback for my own (and others') proposals and ideas

I'm also going to use this thread as an update log, for convenience.

For anything else, you can reach me over IRC (on #4-ch) or .

Anyone else experienced new posts not showing up in the thread immediately? I sometimes post something, open the thread again (by clicking on it from thread list on board main page, the /l50 link), and it doesn't show the post I just made. It only shows up when I refresh the page I just opened. I thought it was a caching issue, but all headers seem to be present.

Oh, and by the way, check out this vid.

Also, <code>tag</code> removes whitespace at the beginning of the line, which makes it kinda useless.

Better Captcha (11)

1 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2022-11-20 21:38 ID:74NehOjG

Currently, if I open a bunch of boards the captcha will be the same in all of them. This allows me to make a bunch of posts with only one solution to the captcha. This seems problematic.

2 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2022-11-21 07:48 ID:Heaven

Why would you want to solve more captchas? Spam isn't an issue.
I just got a long word captcha I've had before, I started typing and autofill did the rest. Blessed.

3 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2022-11-21 15:56 ID:Heaven

I'm with >>1. While we're at it, any chance we could make the user experience more cumbersome? Maybe introduce a 10-second delay between actually sending the post after we hit the reply button, or have each reply have a 1/10 chance to randomly fail? Oh, and our captchas don't seem like they're benefitting some multinational corporation so that's obviously gotta change, shouldn't we be teaching self-driving cars or something?

4 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2022-11-21 16:18 ID:fK5gjGoC

Lol ok I get it, it’s not really a problem currently.

5 Name: ssz!!(Admin) : 2022-11-21 17:01 ID:AZdLx95z

It's a quirk of the software setup (independent kareha instances). Haven't seen anyone exploit it yet, and the current admin tools should be able to handle it.

6 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2022-11-21 17:45 ID:sMoJy4iY

Just out of curiosity, why does this occur? Are the captcha generated based on the current time or the poster's IP address or something? This quirk indicates they're only psuedo-random but how exactly are they generated?

7 Name: ssz!!(Admin) : 2022-11-21 18:44 ID:AZdLx95z

IIRC pseudorandom; since all the installs have the same password and cryptographic key the nth captcha for a new IP is going to be the same for all of them.

8 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2022-12-04 12:51 ID:dGDsittb

Wait, can you actually make the posts >>1? If I have multiple threads open, they show the same captcha, but after submitting one post, the other captchas become invalid and I have to refresh the page to get a new one before I can post

9 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2022-12-05 18:11 ID:7k5peNCB

Yes, I can make multiple posts.

A banner starring a fat, Japanese, 65 year-old hoarder typing away on a long dead BBS from his youth sounds way more appealing to 4-ch's general audience, than a /mu/core LaL_lain banner made by high-fructose corn sugar kids that spend their irl time away from the computer cutting themselves in the outhouse at python camp.

You certainly don't value your time if you waste your time blocking people or creating filter lists. The time you spend to block or create filters is a waste when you could simply get off the computer and do something more productive.
Blocking people will never work because there will always be someone you don't like. Filters will always have to be updated because people can get crafty and smart and bypass.
Now go back where ever you came from and never return.
