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.

Since I can't reply to the locked pinned thread about chans whom use lynxchan, I'll create this thread to inform you that mewch.net/ (https://mewch.net/b/) uses lynxchan.

Just dropping some front-end / back-end feature suggestions I'd love to see.

Reports should be easily accessible by janitors, moderators, and administrators. Why not have a JavaScript widget similar to 4chan's thread watcher? It allows for janitors, moderators, etc to quickly and easily address reports inline.

Ban requests: On large-scale imageboards, where we can hope LynxChan to be eventually destroyed, you'll eventually need to hire janitors that you can't really trust. For this, I propose a ban requesting system that janitors can use to request for a user to be banned based on a post that they made. This BR would be sent over to the moderators and displayed in-line in the widget.

Viewing reports: Allocate reports to a catalog
Reports could be displayed in a catalog. Many imageboard users are used to using a catalog interface to view posts, so putting reports in a catalog would make the moderation experience more comfortable for new moderators.

Archive: In-line archive that expires after a set period of time. Like 4chan's internal archives.

Restorable deletes: Don't trust janitors to permanently delete content; hide it from the users and only allow the moderators to permanently delete them. Prevents abuse by untrusted rogue janitors. Perhaps make this a configurable option, so for example a role of root could only permanently delete content.

Live-posting: Like meguca, odilitime has already started working on this with his project called megud.

I took these ideas out of multiple imageboard softwares that exist, hopefully they will all eventually exist in a single imageboard software.

You should checkout penumbralynx.

The pop up with info and shortcuts seens interesting. But I really don't dig working on front-end features.

About the features:

>Ban requests
Interesting, but I wouln't make a separate feature.
I would instead make reports made by janitors to be displayed with some kind of highlight.

>Viewing reports
In newer versions the post is already displayed in it's preview form, which is more complete than the catalog form.
I'm yet to hear feedback from the new format, though.

>Archive
Already done and removed. Not much purpose and didn't play well with the file deduplication.

Oh, that's cool. I'm not really competent enough to do any front-end development, otherwise I'd start working on this myself.

Penumberalynx is pretty nice but I'm not fond of the cyber theme that comes with it. I'm looking for something that looks like a standard Yotsuba B / Tomorrow board but has the features that vichan does.

Sounds like pretty much the same thing. I like this.


>Already done and removed. Not much purpose and didn't play well with the file deduplication.

I mean, it's only useful on semi-fast imageboards or imageboards that want their content to stay around in an archived state for a short period of time. It could also serve as a decent anti-spam measure.

Thats just a matter of changing the css.

>There's not a way to insert your own custom css, nor is there a way to set custom javascript.
That's the point of the modular front-end. You just modify it the way you want without having to change any code on the engine.

I'm currently using lainchan but was wondering if lynx is worth using it. Would It be an easy migration if I choose to? Have you ever used a tinyboard fork before and switch to lynx? Is it worth it?

Cat 08/20/2017 (Sun) 16:35:15 Id: e5a592 No. 467
Yeah, space worked on a vichan> lynxchan migration.
And yes, its worth it.
Lynxchan performs better and has more features.
Not to mention documentation.
Come to #lynxchan and talk to space.



Feature Suggestion: Something similar to vichan's filtering system Cat 08/03/2017 (Thu) 20:50:01 Id: f2b10c No. 462 [Reply]
In vichan, you could do something like this to globally block a known spammer.
[code]
// $config['filters'][] = array(
// 'condition' => array(
// 'name' => '/^surgeon$/',
// 'body' => '/regards,\s+(the )?surgeon$/i',
// 'OP' => false
// ),
// 'action' => 'ban',
// 'add_note' => true,
// 'expires' => 60 * 60 * 3, // 3 hours
// 'reason' => 'Go away, spammer.'
// );
[/code]

Having a feature like this for lynxchan would be extremely helpful for banning/blocking spambots. Do you think you could implement something like this for lynxchan?

Cat 08/04/2017 (Fri) 02:24:25 Id: 94d373 No. 463
Its already done.
LynxChan integrates the stopforumspam.com and updates hourly the list of banned ips.

Cat 08/04/2017 (Fri) 15:10:39 Id: f2b10c No. 464
>>463
No, this is a filter that is based on words. For example, you could make it automatically ban the word "pineapple" for a set period of time, or forever.

Ah, I get it.
I already wrote an addon for that, but there wasn't much interest.

There's a problem with your CSS making the border around a posts, that is shown by hovering over any linked post, uneditable.

Any reason for banning >>>/pol/264? That was a very /pol/ related thread and Zionist memes are a real thing. I say the ban was uncalled for and the topic should be allowed. Endchan got over 200 posts on the topic, all with fruitful discussion about memes, their purposes, and agents used to create them or spam them (like outing Ben Garrison as a Zionist shill).

Reposting reply here just for good measure:

>>>/pol/267
>I DO NOT want this site to grow
That's too bad, but I understand if you don't wish to deal with potential legal issues.

Do you know of any okay /pol/ or /new/ type boards? Endchan is run by a pedophile admin and its /pol/ board by a pedo-supporting mod (Ocelotte), my opinion is they might down the line try to use it to entrap lurkers and posters on false child pornography charges and get certain users of a certain political persuasion to do many years behind bars. Plus all of the ethnic D&C that is tolerated and subliminally encouraged (like anti-Irish and anti-Scottish disinfo). For all I know Ocelotte could even be the "potato nigger spammer", or at least one of them.

Both 8chans I wouldn't touch with a ten-foot pole. .net is owned by the FBI and .pl is owned by a Polish jew who also supports pedophilia yet cooperates with EU law enforcement. 4chan needless to say is dead and is a Zionist CIA/KGB/Mossad bot post factory with very, very few legitimate users anymore. 32chan has repeatedly gone down and erased its boards, and now its current /pol/ board is run by a "freecher" who has pretty much said upfront in a thread that he is not trustworthy and will backstab you.

So, with that said, any good imageboards you might know of? I have a lot of topics I wish to discuss about the manipulation of the world, from why Zionists are pushing bacon consumption in the MSM and within the hipster community, to why are almost all major tech companies headquartered in the Bay Area when it's a tax hellhole (and SF is the spy capital of the world, ahead of London and Tel Aviv in terms of hidden cameras and microphones per square mile and per 1000 people), to Zionist internet memes and their purpose (a la this thread), to what really may happen after death and what has been hidden from us due to Abrahamic religions, as well as to expose psyops that are being played out on various websites and imageboards.
