Requesting a Board

Currently board creation is not enabled for regular users. If you are willing to own and moderate a board do the following:

- Create a user account on the site.
- Reply to this thread with the following:
Board URI
Board name
What is the board about?
Your user account name

I don't really care much about what you want to do with your board so as long as it's legal you're gonna get the board. Boards which are dead* for more than 2 weeks are up for claims.
*dead means the BO is absent.

/x/ - dead since 17th of August
/hypno/ - dead since 17th of August
If you login to your BO account before someone else claims your board, it will be closed to claims.

Statement about recent downtime was down due to an imageboard software crash on 2019-10-30 between 03:30 UTC and 04:45 UTC.

What happened?
The database was filled with expired captchas. For some reason, the scheduled command to clear the expired captchas in the database was prevented from running. When Lynxchan crashed there were 1,051,459 captchas in the database.

How did this happen?
We are still investigating the cause. We're going to be monitoring the captcha counts in the database over the next couple of days to make sure that this doesn't re-occur. Currently the captcha counts are at normal levels.

Possible causes/speculation had to deal with an issue where MongoDB and subsequently Lynxchan would repeatedly crash due to MongoDB hogging almost all available system RAM. This could mean that the scheduled task that was meant to clear captchas may not have been triggered.
Of course it is also possible that a malicious attacker could've repeatedly requested captchas until the database was filled to the brim; however, our findings make this an unlikely case.
Lastly it is possible that an exploit exists in LynxChan to bypass limits on captcha generation.

Response to the incident
We are going to be closely monitoring the captcha expiration scheduling system to make sure it doesn't cause this sort of error again. Other than that, there doesn't seem to be any attack vector right now.

loli boards

Any one else unhappy with the loli board being created and now being a top board? I think it's going to attract the wrong sort of people here. /a/'s bunker already allows lolis as a form of gatekeeping and would be more suitable for people with those interests.

8ch had a huge problem with CP because it tolerated loli and "legal" child modeling pictures. I'm sure those people are also looking for a bunker to dump their stuff on and I'd rather it not be julay

Extending the Webrings functionality

I'd like to talk about adding some features to the webring or alternatively change some of the sites UI to encourage and enable more distributed posting.
I am not sure if the admins/devs are already working on something like that but my idea is that the webring could benefit from the ability to share threads between boards that are on different servers in order to A) keep boards lively even if there are different versions of them on the webring that would otherwise split the userbase B) further follow up on the decentralization the webring wants to offer by dublicating the thread over multiple servers and ensuring that it doesn't vanish if a particular Server gets knocked over.
To make it explicit: If I say create a Share Thread on Julay/v/ I could at thread creation decide(if enabled by BO) if I want to stripe this thread over to a selection of other instances of /v/ on say smug or

The major concern for most anons would most likely be moderation since a lot of boards, even though they share the same name tend to have at least somewhat different cultures and as such these features would need to expose to the BO and anons the possibility to hide threads and anons by server.
This would undoubtedly be some work but I think it would be worth it in order to deduplicate common threads while making them more active and making it more appealling to "vote with their feet".
A current example would be, that I think it would have helped if the /agdg/ and Space threads from vch had been synced accross the different servers and anons could have just switched to greener pastures instead of following the migrated threads to 8kunhabits and sticking with what you know is a strong factor even if the BO is shit

The much easierat least I think so alternative would be to make it easier to keep tabs on other boards activity but don't really know how that would be implemented since at least Julay tends to use the full screen pretty decently.

Official jula/v/ Meta Thread

Problems with Vichan and Lynxchan

I've seen lost of complaints from the administration here about Lynxchan's problems, but given the fact you guys still chose Lynxchan over one of the Vichan derivatives, I'm assuming Lynxchan's problems were still much easier to deal with than Vichan. And I'm curious as a layman user how the nightmare of imageboard maintenance works from the admin's perspective.
>How is Vichan a pain in the ass?
>Do the Vichan forks have anything good about them, or are they nothing but gold-glittered shit?

New css problems

1. Quoted posts change colour when clicked like standard links in html do.
2. Quick reply box is missing all fields but name.
3. Catalog is ugly.
4. Something seems a bit off about the font

Not necessarily a problem but could you make the boards page actually grow wider as the window gets wider instead of capping at a fixed size? That way we might actually be able to see a board's full description for once.

Revenue/Funding model thread

Since we can all daydream about expanding JulayWorld, maybe pitch some ideas?

#1: Advertisements
This is the model 8chan tried to run on and partially succeded.
Pros: Easy money if the advertisers don't mind outr platform
Cons 1: AdBlockers and intrusive advertisements
Cons 2: Advertisement boycotts and PayPal/Stripe Bans

#2: Cryptocurrency Miners in webpage
This one is applied to The Pirate Bay and others
Pros: Not as intrusive as one may think (if one has the resources)
Cons 1: Can break computers and mobile that have low coputer power
Cons 2: Cryptocurrency fluctuations means funding is not stable

#3: Pay-To-Play Imageboard Features
Maybe people can pay for more cache (page/thread count) or more file cache
Pros: Has ample demand once JulayWorld grows out
Cons 1: Current "slow" boards will have to restrict page/thread counts
Cons 2: Having file cache limits stops people from sharing files

Slate brought in the trolls.

A week ago Slate published an article mentioning and since then many boards have been showing the same small group of people using the same tactics to try and disrupt the top boards.

Slate's article made people outside of the webring notice we existed. Neinchan seems to be one of the places who are migrating here after discovering the tranny discord stuff going on. If they're legit users or angry trannies trying to disrupt things I can't say.

Could the global mods try supporting the BOs and userbase against these disruptive elements? Julay is not big enough to be able to shout them down and ignore them. A handful of dedicated trolls can fuck a slow board and some BOs have been on /meta/ asking for tools to help deal with them.

Can anyone drop me some info regarding the state of imageboard culture right now? I took a break from imageboards long before pigchan went down, and now my head is pretty rattled over all of these new imageboards cropping up, especially after reading the thread about how there are these autistic collective groups being ran by retarded goyscord circlejerks. And what is this this "webring" thing? I've only been on tor chans over the last few months and all of this shit is quite confusing. Usually I just shut the fuck up and lurk but I think considering the nature of the state of things these questions are little more justified. Almost every board I've visited seems pretty shit, but at least here seems to be ran by somewhat competent people given they are allowing board creation while still being cautious of the glow niggers.

Also thanks very much for enabling tor posting and having a site that's functional without niggerscript.

When I was 18... 18 years old, I saw for the first time in my life... I saw an image of clarity. I saw a comic strip... a three panel comic strip that, though simple as it seemed, changed me... changed my being, changed who I am... Made me who I am...
Enlightened me...
The strip, Garfield, the comic strip was new... no more than maybe a month and a half since inception, since... since coming into existence... and there it was before me in print, I saw it... a comic strip... What was it called?
The story here is of a man, a plain man. He is Jon, but he is more than that... I will get to this later, but first let us say that he's Jon, a plain man.
And then there is a cat... Garfield.
This is the nature of the world, here. When I see the world, the politics, the future, the... the satellites in space, and... the people who put them there...
You can look at everything as a man and a cat... two beings, in harmony and at war...
So, this strip I saw; this man, Jon, and the cat, Garfield, you see...
Yes... hmm...
It is about everything. This... little comic is, oh, lo and behold... not so little anymore.
So yes, when I was 18, I saw this comic... and it hit me all at once, its power. I clipped it, and every day, I looked at it, and I said "Okay... let me look at this here. What is this doing to me? Why is this so powerful?"
Jon Arbuckle, he sits here, legs crossed... comfortable in his home, and he reads his newspaper... The news of the world, perhaps... and then he extends his fingers lightly, delicately... he taps his fingers on an end table, and he feels for something...
What is it? It is something he needs, but it is not there.
And then he looks up, slightly cockeyed, and he thinks... His newspaper's in his lap now, and he thinks this...
Now where could my pipe be?
This... I always come to this, because I was a young man... I'm older now, and I still don't have the secrets, the answers, so this question still rings true, Jon looks up and he thinks...
Now where could my pipe be?
And then it happens... You see it, you see... it's almost like divine intervention, suddenly it is there, and it overpowers you...
A cat is smoking a pipe.
It is the man's pipe, it's Jon's pipe, but the cat... this cat, Garfield, is smoking the pipe... and from afar, and someplace near, but not clear... near but not clear... The man calls out... Jon calls out, he is shocked. "Garfield!" he shouts.
Garfield. The cat's name.
But, let's take a step back... let us examine this from all sides, all perspectives... and when I first came across this comic strip, I was at my father's house... a newspaper had arrived, and I picked it up for him, and brought it inside.
I organized its sections for him and then, yes, the comic strip section fell out from somewhere in the middle, and landed on the kitchen floor... I picked up the paper pages and saw, up somewhere near the top of this strip... just like Jon, I was wearing an aquamarine shirt.
So I thought, "Ah, interesting. I'll have to see this later."

I'm getting reports from multiple people that file uploads are broken for certain files. I need your help to debug it. The problem seems to be related mostly to threads/images that were restored from backups when some boards were slid by spam bots. When these files were imported from backups they were still marked as orphans so they were purged when orphan files were deleted to save disk space.

Known bunkers/bunker map general.

List of all known bunkers for anons that might be looking for other boards.

Updated Anon Map:

Anon's General Location:

>Issues with each bunker

Endchan - run by snakes that fucked with 8ch and friends with Cripple in the past,. Also the same dumbasses that thought putting /pol/ servers in France and Germany was a good idea. WILL REMOVE was snitched to VICE. Any board with its sole location on endchan will be removed

vch - /v/'s bunker put together with tape and staples at the last moment. The management there advises everyone to use a vpn or TOR

zeronet - made by goobers a year back without much thought put into it but are now forced to use it. A shitton of technical problems due to its unstable peer-to-peer nature. Make sure you have a lot of protection and read any available guides before going darknet.

smugloli - /a/'s place, their house, their rules.

chen2 - sort of like livechan but caters more towards /b/, spam issues

spacechan - AVOID, WILL REMOVE they snitched endchan to VICE. Any board with its sole location on spacechan will be removed

Meguca - Goon shithole, mass spammed in the past, avoid if possible

lynxhub - BLOCKS TOR USERS, VPN's FUCKED, NO HTTPS YOU'RE ON YOUR OWN, not enough credibility yet

>Misc. Board Groups - zeronet
>/v/ - vch, zeronet
>/tech/ - zerochan, smugloli, nanochan, bitboard ?
>/ita/ - IRC, and generally multiple bunkers

Hi all
I am going to be creating a brand new /rule34/ board to replace the original and I am taking over from the traitor Troskc.

only this time /rule34/ will be allied with /acc/ and this board will be more friendly then the last one. loli content western is allowed. and also any aged cartoons are allowed.

This board will not tolerate any spam nor from sage whom bully's me and also I am going to be running the board from now on and the request threads we just need some loyal artists loyal to me.

Second we will not allow any speedy05 bullshit or anything.

I am taking over from troskc the traitor whom ruined my life in the last one. the request threads everyone will participate. and character threads etc is allowed.

I will be running /rule34/ and be allied with /acc/ which is Exton from now on to work together. any anon bullies ranting about me or spaming will be blocked or reported.

So also can I have a /rule34/ board.

Bunker stream general

To celebrate /strek/, /k/, /hgg/, /x/ and all the other boards that have came here during the troubles I'm going to start hosting streams in the hopes that anons from all the boards can come together for comfy chat. Since today it's short notice I'm just going to stream a movie I planned on streaming for the anons on /cow/ after our next regular restream.

In an hour (6:30 UTC) I will be streaming Falling Down on the usual cytube channel. You won't need to install any userscripts to join as we have our own streaming server here. For future streams I'd like for each board to suggest content so anons can learn about each other's home board culture. I thought Falling Down was a good choice for today because some anons on /cow/ haven't seen it and it seems appropriate for what's gone on over the last week.

I know it was short notice today but I hope anons from every board will be able to attend. Here is the link to the channel I'll be streaming on today.

Voting for the name for A-log bunker

The time has come, guntlemen.
Vote for your favorite name for this imageboard. You can vote once per ID. Your latest vote overwrites your previous vote. I obviously can't control if someone proxy spams a vote, so if you see something getting spammed just spam harder lmao

Final runners:
>Romechan/SPQRchan (specify)

These are picked as they were the most requested ones, but you're free to vote free-form. Should something else get majority vote, it will get picked.

The Voting System
- For this run of votes, the top 3 voted names are selected. This run continues until 1AM EST/5AM UTC. (in progress)
- Afterwards a second run of votes happen for 12 hours in which you will list the remaining names in order of preference.
- After 12 hours (1PM EST/5PM UTC tomorrow) the vote is tallied. If a name wins the majority, it will be declared the official winner. If there is no majority, the least preferred candidate is disqualified and people choose between the 2 remaining candidates in another 12 hour interval, which will decide the winner.
Hopefully that's clear.

Minor things that could be fixed.

Having a working watchlist for once is great but one minor annoyance: it'll actually show the new post icon when you were the one who most recently posted in a thread. Not a huge issue by any means but please fix it.

Please change the catalog button from a grid icon to text saying catalog or something. Make it an option setting if needed. Ditto the arrow for 'go back to board'. Alternatively have an icon and text like there is for home, boards etc. Also we need a clickable catalog text below the board's name and tagline or whatever you call it (so under 'I have a problem...' on this board).
