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 .

does 僕はホモで、僕のちんこ小さいです sound correct, for any of the japanese experts on here?

It's incredibly easy to write a conditional in perl that fills a certain field if found blank. If ssz could write the sjis function I doubt an empty text field would be hard.

Although it is a bit juvenile. Reminds me of old 420chan.

/img/ was invaded and they wont't leave. It's damn obvious who's been on this site and who's a tourist. 2hu memes, lainposting, modern anime and instagram memes. I swear to God the only way to keep these fucking cunts out is to make this site invite only. Most *chons just get swallowed in meme cancer and the admins throw the site away before the site has even turned 1 year old. But 4-ch has history. IB hoppers plaguing these grounds and dumping their memes into it like it's a toxic wastedump or an indonesian crackwhore is nothing short of sickening.

Since the imageboard is back have you considered switching to weabot? I'm not a programmer so I don't know how good it actually is but it allows for both imageboards and textboards and has a few useful features that whatever version of Kareha we're currently using doesn't.

Disregard what I said. I just entered 4-ch on my mobile phone and the postform is too large for it to fit. It doesn't depend on CSS, as I just switched from Tanasinn to others and nothing changed.

Just lazily slap a responsive width:100%; to the postform, ssz.

Nevermind, postforms use tables... It'll still work but the textarea is too small.

Some feedback on the Guide pages, though I don't know how many new users actually read them, let alone discover this website in the first place:

It might not hurt to explain what the "DQN" board is on the intro page (https://4-ch.net/guide/view/introduction). Something like "The mysteriously titled 'DQN' is an anything-goes board for comedy threads and casual social chatter in the vein of the famous 2channel board News4VIP. Its name comes from 'dokyun', a 2channel meme meaning approximately 'dumbass.'"

When I click on "Joining in" on https://4-ch.net/guide/view/introduction within the main page frame, my browser (latest Firefox) throws the console error "Blocked loading mixed active content “http://4-ch.net/guide/view/participate”."

https://4-ch.net/guide/view/participate links to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sage_%28Internet%29 which doesn't exist.

https://4-ch.net/guide/view/history is kinda boring. It could mention that 4-ch was part of the iichan/wakachan network before it died, and possibly say something about the IAA board. (I'm not sure whether it was actually deliberate, but since IAA was never linked to from iichan, I got the impression it was originally a 'secret hangout' for elite 4-ch posters, which seems an interesting footnote at least.) Not sure any of the other removed boards are worth mentioning.

Also, possibly deliberate and not really a major issue, but Requests is linked twice on the sidebar, once at the top under General and once at the bottom.

Fixed the http image and pointed the sage link to wiktionary. As for the introduction/history pages, I almost like how bare they are, but a rewrite might be in order for the future (at least something mentioning IIchan).
It might be interesting to have someone who was actually there for the very start of the site to verify some of the info, though (are any of those still around?).

Any posts with text art formatting already show up in submona font on mobile, but how about making the entire boards of DQN and AA Bar use submona on mobile too? They use AA font everywhere on desktop anyways.
It'll help view character threads and posts that should have been made with text art formatting but weren't.

If possible I'd like a non-Google search bar of some kind.

186 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2022-02-08 07:46 ID:Heaven

>>184
I think the idea behind keeping it is from the fact that it has been there since the middle of 2007, though not in the years before that. Back then Google wasn't as soulless (or at least not well known to be), it was just a basic search engine and it allowed some static Web 1.0 sites or DOS prone sites to get a search bar too by pushing the work onto Google.

>>185
This is a better idea than outright removal. Not only is the google search bar http which makes the search input public for pretty much every ISP you're routed through, it's also routed through google which is sad given the state of affairs in that company and how much data they collect.
If the search bar remains as is I'd like to at least request switching it from http to https so my browser doesn't alert me about how insecure it is, the google logo alone is enough of a reminder. Switching the form action url from http to https is enough, I tested it.

Bug: Going to Hades resets your theme on other boards, most likely I am guessing it saves it as your new theme on visit instead of just showing a temporary theme on that board, and then when you go back to another board that doesn't have the Hades theme it reverts to default.

Replace the /iaa/ banner with a cropped hikkikomori picture circa early 2000s. Either that or a cropped screenshot of an actual dial-up BBS from the 90s. Something classier than western drawn animu vaporwave plox.

This thing, which I vaguely remember having posted before, but can't find again.

Modern software does most (all?) of these out of the box, but at the end of the day anything other than Wakaba would feel wrong. Expanded file support (mp3, webm) might not be out of the question though.

For that matter, I'm thinking of bringing the page limit back down to 15 or so; not sure why I removed it in the first place. Any objections?

Any change that makes me feel more pressured for time isn't a change I'm going to welcome. I like it when threads stay alive for years.

Give me 2 weeks, there was a thread for one artist, I need to save that one.

No, make an actual file uploader, with zip and such. Just a list of files, with a "upload new one" form at the top. Copy japs with their web 1.0 approach. Main use of /img/ and /uploader/ should be hosting for the rest of text boards, and not their own things.
