Actually, endchan is fairly active and freech isn`t dead either.

16chan *was* successful while it was up, and Nextchan isn't that active but it does have some users. Also Endchan and Freech have Lynxchan

Heads up: 1.7.1 released.
It fixes a bug where when using board ip deletion it wouldn't pick the post ip, but the thread containing the post every single time.

So I decided to make it public here, since it could be a little destructive.

hey Lynx how do I get LynxChan to run on port 80 instead of 8080?

Cat 10/17/2016 (Mon) 20:46:21 Id: 15dc21 No. 349
Change it on the global settings.
Then you have to allow node to bind to port 80.
I talk about that using setcap on the readme.
>sudo setcap 'cap_net_bind_service=+ep' `which node`

Does LynxChan support Youtube embeding? João da Silva 09/16/2016 (Fri) 02:57:17 Id: 17f4c4 No. 322 [Reply]
>> Sérgio


Vichan has this feature, and I'm planning to install LynxChan soon.

StephenLynx##xS3ESC 09/16/2016 (Fri) 11:53:08 Id: 114f48 No. 323
That is a front-end feature.
Having to create a field on the posting form and then allowing only a single video per post is worse than the way 4chan does it, where the javascript simply creates buttons that opens the link with an embedded frame.

So I decided to leave that for front-ends to implement embedding instead of adding support for that on the back-end.

A couple years ago, I used to use a certain chan. It was the single biggest western chan at the time. And while I knew it wasn't perfect, I thought it was a place outside the corporate control of narrative. A place where bullshit was exposed, not propagated. Then one day, I found an article with some credibility about corruption on the media. I looked at the board's catalog, found nothing about said subject and created a thread linking the article. This board had a history of deep mistrust on the media and the people that usually reported on said media, so I thought other people would appreciate this piece of information. Instead I was immediately banned for 3 months.
At that point, I realized the tentacles of the people controlling narrative on the media could reach way, way further than I thought. I realized that when it comes to information exchange, society as a whole cannot afford to put all of it's eggs on a single basket. Because no matter what kind of basket it is, the people out there to control what people talk and think will always be able to find some way to control which eggs stay on the basket and which ones are buried and forgotten as if they never existed.
I stopped using that chan completely and started to diversify the chans I used. One of them managed to take many of other people moving away from the chan that banned me and at some point, the software it used could not cope with the stress it was being put under. That caused the owner of this new chan to look for alternatives and after looking at the existing software, I thought to myself "I can do better". I knew I could do something faster, easier to manage, more secure, more flexible. Something that would make everything else obsolete and take away this technical hurdle from people willing to run chans.
And so, LynxChan was born. And in just one year, with the help of talented and dedicated people on all areas, it managed to rise higher than I could ever ask for. Now people willing to run chans are not tied to archaic, crippled and unmaintained technology. Now they have something that can serve for any style of chan they want to have, that will handle any amount of work and that can be deployed without issues on a matter of minutes and can be customized in any way. All without sacrificing features.
This represents a huge addition to the chan ecosystem, one of the last shelters of free speech on an increasingly controlled and censored internet. If this ecosystem is to survive, its crucial it evolves and adapts to new scenarios and standards. There is a long road ahead but I am certain this project will become more successful as time goes on. I'd like to thank everyone that not only put their time and energy into helping development, but also people that trusted the software into their servers.

On a different topic, I am dropping support for versions 1.1 through 1.4. I know this is not the ideal way to do it, without a reasonable time window, but I feel 1.5 is the oldest relevant version by now and I really don't feel like maintaining the older ones. They will be moved to a legacy repository.
About future plans, I am thinking of focusing on usability for a while. I know that moderation tools are sub-par on this area. 1.6 implemented probably the last big feature overhaul, so there isn't much left to be done besides this kind of polish.

thank you for providing this! I got mine up and running. all the other offerings are written in php or some other shit language, and I intend to do extensive modifications so this works nicely.

may the name Stephen Lynx rise to great heights and bring as great gains

Just make sure to checkout addon development before going out of your way and making a fork.
With an addon its much easier to update the engine with its releases.

I don't wan't to run an actual chan with an actual community.
lynxhub.com is just a demo for people to see the engine in action.
