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 email (TBA).

why not change the links to
it doesn't block foreign IPs like 5ch and scrapes content from it anyway

Allow Tor posters (3)

1 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2020-11-12 14:37 ID:yMrP8BNP

I use tor browser as my main browser and having to switch to post is a pain in the ass.
I understand that allowing to posters usually leads to spam, but I doubt we would have more spam than we already have. Since there is no /img/ board there won't be any illegal material posted(ignoring links, that is.)
Lainchan allows tor posters and as far as I can see it doesn't have that bad of a problem with spam.

2 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2020-11-12 21:56 ID:rnJSPUTd

Feels like there hasn't been much spam for a while actually. I think there was mainly one persistent human spammer who got a new job.

I also doubt most spammers use Tor. I approve of this suggestion.

3 Name: ssz!8KKxaxpAFg (Admin) : 2020-11-14 22:24 ID:rq/J+/EI

I've re-enabled it. TOR requests are logged separately so I'll be able to tell if it's being abused, but I'm just going to give it a try and see how it goes for now.
There really has been remarkably little spam. Hopefully it stays that way! ( ゚ ヮ゚)

[Suggestion]New default name on dqn (27)

There's been waxing and waning interest in it for a while, but we've had the shii face for almost 2,000 days, isn't it truly time for something fresh? If there's a couple decent suggestions we could make a strawpoll and change it to the winner, or something.

thank you for this, new admin. it was weird how this thread was completely ignored for its entire lifespan up until now. made it seem like no one gave a single shit about the site and the only part of it that's really alive, even if basic antispam tasks somehow got done (possibly thanks to you when you were a mod)

hoping more consequential improvements are possible as well!

overboard (2)

1 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2020-09-22 15:03 ID:+7kxcmLD

how about having an overboard to see the latest posts in all boards on the same page? 4-ch would benefit from it.

2 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2020-09-23 23:41 ID:vf9A1L+y

Not sure how practical it would be to implement, considering the shittiness of Kareha and the potential lack of unretarded developers, but it would certainly make the site feel less dead at times. Maybe it's possible to go the lazy route and just display the rss feed contents for all boards on one nice looking page.

[Handheld] The mobile reader support and requests thread (75)

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.

70 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2016-06-20 12:58 ID:6wP2+QOe


This suggestion should be implemented. Using frames in 2016 really is quite silly. It should be trivial to use drop down boxes to navigate the different boards, and it would generally improve browsing on smartphones and tablets.

71 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2016-06-21 02:06 ID:Heaven

>Using frames in 2016 really is quite silly.

Give me a reason that isn't "well it's the standard".

72 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2016-06-21 10:32 ID:6wP2+QOe

Links open within the frame. That breaks functionality if attempting to open a YouTube link from a mobile device.

Frames scroll independently from each other. This makes navigation unnecessarily difficult for users on a device with lower screen resolutions.

Seconded, this applies to >>683,685,709 as well. I guess I've made an exception for the stuff in /general/; I've left some of the threads permasaged for now, please let me know if I should un-permasage any of them (or any other threads for that matter).

This website has been completely destroyed apart from DQN. (23)

1 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2017-03-25 19:57 ID:MNSJvuOj

Ever since the faggoty Harambeposter has been bumping up old threads nobody wants to post in, it destroys semi-active boards and turns them into wastelands. This entire fucking website has been destroyed by this annoying poster.

At this point, I don't see why all boards shouldn't just be deleted and have only 2 or 3 boards up.

I also second this notion. I feel like there's barely any reason to leave most of the boards open with spam and "shitposts" drowning out all potential discussion.

18 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2018-04-14 12:54 ID:9+k3LvMs

if you're going on closing boards, why not just have two boards General and Images (and maybe DQN) or something? Pretty much all the other boards are dead as fuck.

19 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2018-04-16 00:46 ID:LtflwRl/

I think Lifestyle and World categories should be archived. Maaaaybe Personal. The other categories have a handful of dead boards. Sports, Literature, Music, and TV could probably safely put to read only access.

Ultimately though, I don't think it matters. Just clean up the spam links ``KUDASAI''

20 Post deleted.

21 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2018-07-07 07:32 ID:TUwQ5u8h

Putting in some support for this while I'm here.

We aren't 2-ch, we simply don't have the userbase to keep a million narrow topic boards active. I feel like someone viewing the front page for the first time probably wouldn't know which board is the "main" one of this site. So what happens to a lot of new visitors, they either look at /general/ first and see that it gets like 3 posts a month, or they look at a strictly topical board like /anime/ or /food/ and see that the last non-spam post is from 2013, then write off the whole site as dead and never come back.

I'd suggest archiving every category but general and then removing them from the sidebar and just adding a link to the archive directory in their place. Inactive but important with respect to site culture boards, like /ascii/ or /nihongo/, could be left on the sidebar but put into read-only mode or something idk.

22 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2018-07-07 07:33 ID:TUwQ5u8h

It would also hugely reduce the workload of our one moderator to not have to monitor a bunch of otherwise dead boards for the occasional japanese dating spam.
