the mods here consistently stalk users across boards, across ip addresses and who knows how else. its offensive to call yourselves an anonymous site and then consistently abuse your endusers like this. you people are so fucking stupid that your software thinks that i'm posting a new image even though the pixels i'm posting have been sticked on this board for most of the decade. how you got the idea that your opinions about other people's posts carry any weight is unfathomable especially considering how constantly humdrum your own material is.
the users that post here anonymously wish to remain anonymous, you already have a dearth of posters here, why are you driving people away by forcing them to carry a persistent identity from board to board or in unrelated threads? is it because you're childish, vindictive assholes? one has to assume so, for one's own safety. gosh wow and tohno-chan never really became very popular, even years later your website isn't popular. who know how many decent otakus you've driven off with your creepy stalking.

Since the day I founded this site countless people have been telling me to nuke the feedback board. One after another they'd tell me it was nothing but trouble, a stressful to deal with den of bitterness and anger, of endless arguments and complaints where no one will ever be happy no matter how much you try to appease them.
>>6745 This is a perfect example of why I should have just listened to them and deleted the /fb/ board years ago.
On most sites out there the owners/admins don't really care what people say about the site. They might have forums or a hotline for users to vent on but they'll go mostly ignore while changes get put in place no one asked for. Remember when youtube let people vote on weather or not to implement the five star ratting to thumbs up and down? or when firefox quantum was rolled out and they asked firefox users if they were okay with all their extensions being broken? or when moot asked 4chan's opinion on pretty much any change to the site during his reign. I certainly don't. Facebook went on for years ignoring people's pleads to simply be able to delete their accounts, and even now it seems to have to message someone and wait 90 days for something as simple as that. I wanted users to have a voice, to know their opinions mattered and that I was listing and had their best interests in mind, only to get shit on for doing it.
Here I am making changes people directly asked for within days or hours of them asking for it, changes no one opposed. Then I get complaints about the format used to request those changes. The fuck difference does it make if someone requests something here or on our irc channel? That channel exists as a means for instant direct communication. If you don't like the IRC channel that's your own problem, not ours. It's not some exclusive club when you're invited and tell us to shove that invitation up our ass. Maybe you haven't noticed this board here? . Do you also complain about not being allowed to vote on political issues because it means getting off your ass and going to a voting booth? We're not plotting the future of the site in

They're all just hidden though, will they all stay that way or is that just until threads get moved?. /日本/ been removed seems pointless now that /ot/ was renamed from "otaku tangents" to "off-topic". How can Japanese be off-topic (in its intended board form, I assume to promote it) when it's the source of almost everything else meant for this site?

You have to develop taste for anime though, normal people may recognize they are attractive compared to something like cartoons for example but will never fall in love with them like they do with real women, also insulting is forbidden on may in general.

so in order to have a waifu you have to not only like anime but have good taste in it? you are dumb

Is talking about piracy (stealing stuff on the internet, also robbery on the high seas) forbidden?
Some posts on /vg/ were removed and I assumed it was for straying too far from a thread's topic but then I made a vaguely related funpost on /lol/ which also appears to be gone now.
I don't see anything about it in rules. Against US law maybe? But then there appears to be copyrighted stuff on /ddl/.
Please clarify.

If there's copyrighted material on /fb/, please report it. I don't have time to individually check each item there.

Piracy is against the rules due to violating US law.

Edit: I should clarify. Discussions of piracy is OK, but suggesting that users break the law (ie pirate copyrighted materials) is not OK, and providing links to pirated materials is not OK either.

This could be it. Rule of thumb is: Could this give Tohno extra work? If the answer is "yes" then don't do it.
>But then there appears to be copyrighted stuff on /ddl/.
Indeed, and that board is getting a hard look over the next few days.
>> No. 6622 [Edit]
I don't mind it as someone who sails the seas myself from time to time. I can't say the same for our mods however. That said It's one thing to take part in that stuff one's self, it's another to get a website involved in it. So while it's annoying as fug browsing sites where staff are anal about piracy and delete links to just about everything, I reluctantly understand why it's done. I don't believe there's any law saying you can't talk about piracy, but linking to or posting things that are copy written is unfortunately something we can't allow and yeah is covered under that US law rule.

Like >>6621 said I've been considering axing /ddl/ for a bit now. The board seems to only be used by 1-2 people who upload PDFs of books and as far as I can guess they don't seem to use the rest of the site much if at all. I've gotten a few CDs about content on that board over the years too. Usually I'd delete whatever file I get messaged about on the spot, but since no one uses the board for weeb shit it felt pointless to keep it and risk more problems. I was however convinced to just purge the books instead of the board. So I figure we'll give those guys till the end of the month to gather there stuff and find somewhere else to host it.

Is there any reason this site is not made HTTPS? It is safe to assume at this point that nobody gives a damn about privacy on the internet but plain HTTP has other downsides too, like browsers mark it "insecure" and lower search engine rankings. So I'm just wondering if it's because it didn't occur to anybody yet or is it technical reasons maybe?

It would appear that even beyond HTTPS tohno-chan has quite a few technical issues. For one, it runs on Kusaba X, which is quite prone to spam. Although you may have modified it with preventative measures, and you may take regular backups. As far as that goes, I am unaware.

You seem to be using FTP to manage the uploading and management of your software, rather than a version control system like Git or Subversion. For keeping track of mistakes you make, upgrading software, and other things, this will make your life harder (Not that Kusaba X has been updated in quite a while anyway...)

In regards to Kusaba X, it is very old software, and PHP7+ and even recent versions of PHP5 are incompatible with it. Eventually the operating system that the server runs on will stop being updated - Naturally you would want to upgrade to the newest version, to ensure that your server is exploit free and secure. But you will find that you cannot do so because your operating system doesn't have such an old version of PHP in its repositories. This will lead to you either migrating software (something that I highly recommend doing) or you will be left behind on (eventually, very) insecure software. Kusaba X has many private exploits of varying degree; a good example of a public one was developed by savetheinternet: You can view it here:

This particular exploit can reverse a Kusaba X poster-ID into ~221 possible IP addresses. With some more filtering, we could very likely find a poster's regular IP address using this. Another exploit is apparently SQL injection, which lead to a site that will not be named getting all of its IP addresses dumped.

KusabaX is called KushitbaX in administrator circles for a reason.

If you decide to upgrade the software and hopefully your operating system (I'm sure it's quite old) I can suggest to the administrator vichan, which is slowly dying in development but it's much more modern and is PHP7 compatible, or LynxChan which is in active development but the frontend (what the user sees) is... somewhat ugly. The developer of LynxChan may be willing to work with you on that, though.

I'm aware of the php update issue, and that it could mean the death of this site.
I actually did try out LynxChan and yeah had help from it's devs, but found it to be a needlessly convoluted pain in the ass to even get running, and like you said it was butt ugly with a horrible mod panel. I don't think I've messed around with vichan though, that might be something worth looking into. I'm no programmer and offered to compensate people for their help but that obviously hasn't gotten me anywhere. If I could I'd let this place go the way of SpaceJam and remain unchanged for decades, but I doubt that'll fly with a site like this.

I vaguely recall something like that, but I think we might still be out of date all the same.
>> No. 6612 [Edit]
I could help you move to vichan sometime if you want... It's still maintained so it should be somewhat stable for the foreseeable future, and it's PHP7 compatible. There is also a script you can use to move from Kusaba X to it. I've used it before, and it works well enough. The most difficult thing to actually port would be the stylesheets and the frontpage.

Upgrading the PHP version is not the same as upgrading the PHP software which powers the site. The PHP version is basically an interpreter for instructions, you need the latest version of the instructors to work on the latest version of the interpreter. The instructions of Kusaba X are very old.
>> No. 6616 [Edit]
So yeah, we're on PHP 5.6 at the moment. Word is we might not be forced to update till 2019. I'm not necessarily opposed to overhauling the site, but it does seem redundant. The same people who complain about KusabaX would likely complain about whatever we switch to anyway.

I am also surprised stuff like that is regularly tolerated there. I think we all have aspects to our lives that are more on the normal side, but it's common curtesy to not bring ithem up in unwelcome settings. It doesn't surprise me that some of the users here are not socially aware enough to know that they're making other people uncomfortable by doing so though.

I really dislike the IRC in general.

I get a lot of people here are depressed and bitter but I completely avoid the IRC now just because of these people.
