Is there anyway to look at posts that have been deleted from Admin view?

THE SOLUTION TO THE SPAMMING QUESTION Cat 11/27/2017 (Mon) 05:42:18 Id: 1796cc [Preview] No. 483 [Reply]
Idea: Registration system. You may think it sounds basic, but it offers a heck of lot of ways to deal with spamming.

For one, it means one can't just pop open a script to flood your site anymore. It adds another layer of authenticity. They need to create a script which can get them multiple e-mail accounts - we can also ratelimit those registrations. More details below.

Generally, the registration system should not exist for the purpose of identifiability on the boards. A tripcode already fulfills this purpose. Although, using a LynxChan extension, we could easily add support for certain flair similar to 4chan.org's since4pass feature, but that is for another thread. The registration system should serve as an anti-spam mechanism.

The registration system should work like this:
-On the frontend, a notice for users that they require an account is displayed if the registration system is turned on. They are forwarded to login.html and told to register or login. They register, verify their email, and then they login.

Now here is where we get into even more security:
-The administrator should be able to restrict what e-mails can be used for registration. We could limit them to cock.li, gmail.com, yahoo.com, protonmail,ch, and protonmail.com. If any of these domains become troublesome, they can be omitted.
-The registration should be restricted by the StopForumSpam database, just as with MyBB.
-Registrations should be able to be ratelimited. If the maximum daily registrations have been exceeded, tell the user. Staff should be able to make these user accounts as they already can do via the Global Management panel.
-Not really required: One can also turn on a mode where all registrations need to be approved by an administrator or moderator. Also known as the "vBulletin hell"

Let me know your thoughts and if this is something that sounds appealing to (You)

You already can't. There is both mandatory global captcha and mandatory block bypass. Sites get spammed because they fail to RTFM and turn on settings to prevent spam.

All in all, I really dislike the idea of making the engine to behave like a forum with accounts and such. And its completely unnecessary. At best one could make it so users are exempt from filling captchas, like the 4chan pass for the sake of convenience.

But I really fell like this would give a bad rep to the software, by attaching e-mails to posting at all.

It's an alternative to needing to have captcha enabled constantly, as with the block bypass. You can make your registered users lives a lot more pleasant by not requiring them to fill out a captcha constantly. Someone starts spamming? Then you turn the registration off, and the posting experience remains the same for everyone currently registered. Plus you can manually let people in. It's another way to prevent spam, without the need for captcha.

>But I really fell like this would give a bad rep to the software, by attaching e-mails to posting at all.
It shouldn't; People who choose not to use instances which decide to take this approach to combating spam only need to use another instance. It's comparable to saying "I hate vichan... It makes me use a tripcode to post!" [Because the rules of the website require you to do so]

It doesn't behave like a forum either, it only adds a registration system and a new set of permissions. If it behaved like a forum, you would have things like persistent post count, world-readable post history, a reputation system, persistent nicknames forced, not an option. This takes only one thing from forums: Requirement for registration. Everything else is in the hands of the instance.

emails aren't needed for registering, you're a dumbass; make a forum instead

IPFS caching ability
1. auto-uploading all files coming into blazechan, to IPFS
2. create IPFS hash search bar for finding files in an IPFS-sharing board
3. A "delete option" for removing file and IPFS hash caused by DMCA takedowns and CP

Possible expansions: sub-channels in a board
Please do not use Slack (Discord 8.8/10, not perfect)

I will absolutely not add integration with any external system.

As to react and other bullshit framework, those are just front-end implementations. They have no relation at all to the engine.

I have no idea what you meant by
>But instead https://lynxhub.com/tech/tpg
Is it catalog search? Because that's a front-end feature and penumbralynx already have it.

>But instead http://lynxhub.com/tech+g+prog
There is already multi-board and it works exactly like that. Endchan have it enabled.

>Ebook, torrent and other file sharing (for /pol/ and /tech/)
Sites can already allow any mimetype they want.

>GET checker display board (for /sp/)
>In-post commands for games like parliament simulator

May I suggest implementing a feature? I would like to see how long ago a post was made when hovering the cursor over the date the post. This can be done on infinity and is a feature i enjoy.

I wasn't sure where to post suggestions so I'll just leave this here. Lynx is great; thanks.

That's a front-end feature.
Notice that if you disable js it doesn`t work on 8ch.

LynxChan 1.9 is about to enter beta and introduces a very important feature: JIT caching.

JIT caching is caching pages once they are requested, instead of caching when their content is changed.

This feature should allow for not only a significant reduced CPU usage but also for a more responsive experience for users.

Other from that, this version will also add a few features:
File search on media management
Maintenance images
Ability to restart the unix socket from a GUI
Subject editing
Board locking
Better global board moderation
SSL can be made mandatory
Mass bans directly from ips

No, the software known as "LynxChan" does not work.


It is objectively bad not because it was made by a Brazilian, but because it was written in Node.js


I have been the Administrator and Owner of "32Chan" for a year now, and I have only used "LynxChan" as the main software. I can guarantee you that it does not work.


It is garbage to be quite honest with you. The file names are an eyesore and you cant forget that it's written in Node.js, one of the worst languages to use when writing image board software unlike PHP.
