What file types do we don't support that you would like us to add?

Making an official thread to keep on top of this better. Most of these are relatively easy to add.

I'm not quite sure why LynxChan has a filter on these. It maybe easy to start a list of what we don't want.


Here's the current list:

EDIT: This is now the /pol/ containment thread

Hi dear site owners,

We have a problem with /pol/. One of our newly appointed mods is apparently the "nigger spammer" who is using Tor to bump old threads. I am suspecting the BO and the mod to be either one and the same person using different VPN mod accounts or BO has hi-jacked the board to crash it by employing his friends or family members.

Right now i was banned for exposing the new mod to be the spammer himself in the board own meta thread. As you may understand /pol/ is a NS board which is targeted by so many groups of people.
While the new mod is creating dozens of "honey pot" threads old popular threads were slid and /pol/ is dying.
The board is dying and I don't know what we suppose to do.
Some posts and threads are deleted, I myself was banned in the meta thread. The mods are creating a chaos and they they use it to ban random people and lock and delete unwanted threads.

The BO himself has developed the tactic to let the mods do the job for him so he keeps his clean image. Once a mod has messed up the board far enough he simply replaces him (likely with the same guy by deleting the old mod account and creating a new one. Ocolette is owning the board for approximately 5 months now and it has become same bs as 8/pol/ were people are getting banned unfairly and for ridiculous reasons.

I have taken screenshots and archived all evidence. I'm ready to upload it if required.
People are now leaving /pol/ in big numbers and I ask you to help to save the board from Ocolette and his moderation.

Shills have tried to depend on "the paranoia of anti-semites" by shrieking CIA about many public speakers revealing ZOG. They don't phase me.

PSA: Block bypass has been enabled for some IPs Balrog Board volunteer 05/17/2016 (Tue) 14:23:15 [Preview] No. 4154 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
I found where that spam full of random garbage is coming from. It doesn't have any discernable pattern so we can't use the autoban addon to remove it, but it's all coming from the same /24 range of IPs in Russia so we can just rangeban it. The problem is that Lynxchan currently only does /16 rangebans, which would result in substantial collateral damage. To counter this I'm enabling the block bypass function.

If you are rangebanned, you can use the block bypass function to solve a CAPTCHA and bypass the rangeban. This requires your browser to store a "bypass" cookie. No CAPTCHA will be required to post if your IP has not been subject to a rangeban. Block bypasses last for 24 hours or 50 posts.

I've already asked StephenLynx about adding a second, smaller rangeban level.

OK, thanks for the info. I do routinely wipe my browser cache/history, I guess I forgot to do that before I came back here. Likely could have been a news site or some video streaming site that had a bunch of scripts trying to follow me around.

This is the 5th time I tried upload a huge ass file on TOR,
and the captcha expires before it can finish uploading.
Is there a fucking way it can verify the captcha first,
then attempt or fail&report to upload the file?!?
This isn't blockBypass.js cookie, this is board-post captcha.js/captchaImage.

This shouldn't even be a bloody problem: You want to upload a file?
First checkbox you want to upload a file,
write your message,
click take me to upload.js,
and copy and past this key.

If should instantly fail if it detects a banned file type by just the header,
e.g. .exe, .elf, .out, etc., and reply back such, and link you back to your
I prefer the open window/tab method.

They need to change the 30 second captcha refresh mandate to at least 2 or 3 minutes. I think this would help, usually when it starts uploading as long as its the same captcha it will successfully post. Sometimes big files take more than 30 seconds to begin uploading and thats when it refreshes and fucks up the post.

connections closed and ranged requests Anonymous 09/01/2018 (Sat) 20:29:24 [Preview] No. 9787 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
There's an old unresolved problem with the onion frontend (at least): when downloading large files the server closes the connection after 10MB or so have been transferred, leaving the file truncated.

For certain kinds of files it's possible to workaround this bug by resuming the download at the position it was interrupted. The connection will get closed again after another 10MB or so. Repeat until the file is complete.

However, for fuck knows what reason, StephenLynx decided to use a whitelist for mime types allowed to be requested in ranges, so that workaround doesn't always work. He came to his senses at some point and dropped that nonsense, but Endchan still uses the whitelist.

So 2 issues:
1. The server closes connections after a few MB.
2. Remove the whitelist in src/be/engine/gridFsHandler.js.

Why the fuck not? Any normal http server would allow ranged requests regardless of mime type because it's completely irrelevant. Do explain because it makes no sense.

Yes, we're aware of this and trying to find a fix. When I started investigating I found out the hard way that it affects uploads too. The problem is that according to startpage nobody else has ever had this problem with a hidden service ever, and every layer between lynxchan and tor is showing all clear, or rather is configured to treat Tor traffic and non-Tor traffic identically. It's weird.

Board Claim Procedure Endwall 10/14/2018 (Sun) 23:35:09 [Preview] No. 9993 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Hi I sent an email to triangles@openmailbox.org to claim a board >>/netsec/, but I haven't heard back regarding it. Is there a new contact procedure? If so where / how?



The contact page has no current email info. Is IRC the new way to contact? or Operate?

Also it would be nice to have a board claim request feature within the account space of Endchan itself. Like under Create Board, you could make a space for Claim Board. And this would check against its claimable status and submit a request to the administrator, or automatically reassign it under certain conditions.

Anyhow I'd like to claim >>/netsec/. Let me know if this is possible. Thanks.

A plan for cleaning up board bloat Balrog Board owner 08/23/2018 (Thu) 21:58:07 [Preview] No. 9674 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
I've been considering changing the way endchan handles boards. I think it's obvious at this point that completely free board creation and completely soverign BOs doesn't really work; judging from 8chan you just get a massive graveyard of unused boards with none of the independence people were raving about back in 2014. Basically you get redchanit. On the other hand I think it's self-evident that letting users moderate themselves and have input on board creation is a good idea. I want to see what you guys think about it, but here's what I'm thinking of as a broad-strokes plan right now:

>1. Nuke all the zero-post boards so the site looks like less of a ghost town
>2. Start compiling a list of boards to keep
>3. Turn off board creation for normal accounts, set up a process for topic splitting (where there's enough traffic for a topic to justify its own board; think /tg/ splitting off of /b/ in the ancient days of 4chan) and refugees from other sites to get their own boards
>4. Add a "don't be a shit BO or you're getting ejected" clause to the global rules
>5. Delete the small and dead boards that didn't make the list from 2, giving plenty of warning so people can archive their favorite threads

I think that this way we'll get some of the promised benefits that the "redchanit" model was supposed to give imageboards (BOs that actually give a shit, a board list that reflects posting activity) and not the bullshit.


So, what do you guys think? picture unrelated

I never called for anyone to be banned. I have always been the one responding to others calling for /news/ and /pol/ users to be banned. /news/ & /pol/ have never hurt anyone. No one should be banned unless they deliberately spam or wreck boards and that decision should be left up to the BOs of each board.

1) Post the email, I want to see if I can arrange a diplomatic email: This is also historic and news worthy
2) For now, post in Russian that you are "getting a lawyer" and CC Russian lawyers on twitter.
3) If you haven't read the >>>/n/156 : Russia has actually banned VPNs & TOR: legally you cannot recommend the address. You can do a canary like post although: "This image is soo cool! [contains the addresses]
4) For now reply with "While we are getting a lawyer, we are seeking advice on what our best options are for our international users whose these bodies of works are legal to, and belong to those owners on those countries."

This might get international headlines if you seekout the correct people.

You can. Actually, services that help to avoid ban are forbidden, i.e. they need to implement bans too otherwise they will be banned. But you can recommend anything. Just don't write that this helps to avoid bans openly to be safe.

>This might get international headlines

Oh mate, they literally banned large amount of AWS and Google servers, multiple subnets of large hosting providers etc. For some time Twitch and Steam didn't work for example, and multiple large sites like Github and so.

No one would even care about some unknown board.

And the Russian government wants lolicon to be removed, though I don't think the Russian government cares at all about child pornography or lolicon, they just want to ban Endchan.
