Roadmap Comrade Board volunteer 01/16/2020 (Thu) 23:35:45 No. 3941 [Reply] [Last]
Please post features for the roadmap here. Off topic and completed features will be deleted. Duplicate posts will be removed. Volunteer demands get priority and order of execution depends on the usefulness the time cost and my personal motivation. Please be as complete as possibly in a feature request. Even shitty ms Paint illustrations of how you imagine it are greatly appreciated and usefull. Currently the dev team is focussing on gochan development. Your feature request will be implemented there if they are chosen. I only respond to reject or ask for clarifications on posts. If I do not respond consider your report accepted and on the to do list. This keeps the thread short and concise. Please note: New wordfilters/flags are not site features. Whining about your ban is not a site feature. If you ask about this your post will be remove. If you spam you will get a short ban from the gulag board. .t codemonkey admin

One thing I miss from 8/leftypol/ is that their was a sticky thread where people posted about books they were reading, and suggested books to people, and posted .pdfs files. Is their any plan to revive such a sticky thread? Quality has gone down sense fleeing 8chan and I think that is partially why?
>>7703 You can post books here >>>/leftypol/668788, the archived one is here >>>/leftypol/8537, or do you mean something else?
>>7785 do you remember the thread where pic related were from
>>7802 If you're talking about the /read/ing group thread, it's been bumped off /leftypol/. The successor of this thread is found on /edu/ here >>>/edu/4956 . A similar general discussion thread >>>/edu/3434

Official Thread For Discussion Of Moderator Votes Comrade 08/26/2019 (Mon) 02:58:59 No. 1928 [Reply] [Last]
Hello, this is a topic that is intended for feedback on matters currently up for vote among the mod staff for all users. I will also include this info on /leftypol/ in case it is missed but for all you gulag-watchers, here it is. Here are the matters currently up for vote;

FAST TRACK VOTE: It is proposed that the pinned reading list topic and the /NEW/ topic on leftypol should be merged into one FAQ pinned thread as was present on the old leftypol, since we are now out of the transitionary period, and to reduce the number of pinned threads. This new thread would give advice for new members and board conduct as well as the reading list. VOTING WILL CLOSE 4AM UTC 27/08

LONG VOTE: It is proposed that Bunkerchan should, ONCE TECHNICALLY POSSIBLE, create a ban list that is publicly viewable that includes the name of the moderator who issued the ban as well as the details of the post itself, so that users can hold their staff to account more effectively. Obviously, no identifying info or IPs should be publicly visible besides vol name. VOTING WILL CLOSE 4AM UTC 29/08

LONG VOTE: It is proposed that voting in this channel on issues which only affect one board (or not all boards) should be limited to only the staff members who administrate those board/s. If you think that all moderators of the site should vote on all proposals, please vote thumbs down to this proposal. VOTING WILL CLOSE IN 72 HOURS AT 3AM UTC 29/08

>>7047 No, that doesn't work either when it's meant as a verb >you can seethe all you want <you can cool & awesome all you want This kind of opposite-day filter is dumb in the first place. A better filter would retain some of the sense, while being ridiculous. Like the PMC -> "people of college" filter.
>>7310 cope harder raid fags
>>7406 I vote to fire whoever was janny when the raid thread was stickied. That was unprofessional, and it's the reason we're in this mess. I'm going back to twitter until this blows over.
>>7420 This isn't the thread for that and a false flag too but I have to mention there was never a raid thread (unless you count an announcement about /pol/ trying to raid us, which would be absurd).
>>7047 It just needs to be removed, because it's fucking retarded. What's even the point of filtering seeethe anyway? Why filter seeethe but not cope? It's just dumb and annoying.

PRIORITY 1 We need a more distinct style of css. I've seen people on twitter and elsewhere sharing screenshots of posts from /leftypol/ and because its yotsuba everyone assumes it comes from /pol/ or 4chan in general. We need a unique css that is not only readable but aesthetically distinct and LITERALLY remarkable. People have to remark on it and be told its /leftypol/ We're leaving notoriety aka free advertising on the table. Example included.
>>6967 colgate should be the default theme
>>6967 People can post their custom CSS here for /leftypol/ and we could add it if it's received well enough.

1) Hobby gets less than 1% the traffic that /leftypol/ does 2) The /IG/ thread ALONE has almost 5 times more activety as ALL OF the /hobby/ board. 3) This is not indicative of a lack of interest. A /games/ thread on /leftypol/ gets about 840 times the posts per hour that the most popular thread on /games/ does. It gets more than 10 times the PPH of the activity of all of /games/ over all of time.

If you could briefly refresh my memory, then I'd be happy to concede this point, but until then, I still believe that /IG/ is a legitimate sample for analysis. >based on a faulty calc >OK LOL Can you demonstrate the error in calculation? I am legitimately interesting in what would have to be changed in order to get a more legitimate result. >yet you ignore that /hobby/ has lost threads to /anime/, /tech/, /edu/ and /games/ I don't think I was aware. Can you tell me how many threads we're talking about here? Then we can adjust the calculations accordingly and get more accurate results. That's in my interest as well, you know. Also, would you be more willing to results that treat treats all smaller boards as just one board? That's about as much in your favour as I could think such calcs could be. >and threads get deleted or posts removed. As far as I can tell this doesn't lower the tally of total posts. A deleted post still counts towards this. Even if this was true, even more stuff is removed from leftypol which has a steady stream of /pol/-raiders. >given that people still have various hobby, games and anime threads in leftypol with posts that include those who refuse to use anime and hobby because it's allowed on leftypol, meaning that because moderation is unenforced, people refuse to use basic rules.

>>7859 Now, don't forget to hand me the data-sets you consider fair-game, because I really genuinely wanna look at that.
No. General threads are fucking cancer and always degenerate into cuckchan-style chatrooms where posts can get deleted within an hour because the thread cycles so fast.
>>7875 And what's bad about that? You can always just go to the slower boards for threads that cycle less fast.
>>7863 I'm too tired to address most of this but >Can you tell me how many threads we're talking about here? Then we can adjust the calculations accordingly and get more accurate results /games/ and /anime/ were created roughly 4 months after /hobby/. All games and anime threads were moved there, and all /tech/ content went back to /tech/ which was revived. This is easily 1/4 of all posts on /hobby/ at the time. Threads like Dragon Ball Z and Naruto h8 thread, the Berserk thread and Jojo's Bizarre adventure as well as Communist Anime Thread were some that I remember being moved to /anime/. /games/ got the 'old vidya' thread, the 'last of us 2' thread the Persona 5 thread, the Freespace thread, the Outer Worlds thread the Disco Elysium thread, the 'leftypol gaming' and 'deus ex' among others. While some of these have shown activity since then. the leftypol gaming thread has remained fairly stagnant with 374 posts from /hobby/. /tech/ recieved the fewest number of posts, mostly made up of dozens of of small threads, rather than a dozen or so medium-sized threads in /anime/ or /games/. I can't tell you the exact numbers because I'm not a mod. >as one board Sure. People who use /hobby/ also tend to use /anime/ and /games/ so go ahead. >lower the tally of total posts But it does lower PPH, unique IPs and the posts in X and Y thread. For example, when some threads were moved to /hobby/ a lot of them had the 'request to move to hobby' posts removed pre-emptively, the same applying to threads moved from /hobby/ to /anime/ or /games/ >>7864 I would, but I'm not a mod, and don't have access to anything outside of some of the public logs, which you can view as well.

Blocking Chinese IPs is one of the first things you learn in website adminstration 101 Anonymous 10/19/2020 (Mon) 20:55:19 No. 7884 [Reply] [Last]
How politically correct and/or incompetent do you have to be to not block all Chinese IPs which you've admitted are the main botnets in the DDoS attack? Literally nobody from China posts here other than proxies and VPNs located in China. 4chan and 2chan blocked all Chinese IPs (except Hong Kong) many years ago for DDoS reasons too. https://mattwilcox.net/web-development/unexpected-ddos-blocking-china-with-ipset-and-iptables >My logs showed requests for services and URLs that had nothing to do with my server, including an awful lot of BitTorrent URLs. Checking the geolocation of the requesting IPs showed they were all inside China. As Craig's post covered – it looks a lot like there's a mis-configuration with China's state controlled firewall, and people's normal traffic is sometimes being sent to entirely the wrong servers. Almost 27Mb/s out is roughly 95 times greater than normal for that server – close to two orders of magnitude increase, and I didn't like that – I could imagine this getting worse rapidly. >As Craig discusses, there's really no option but to block everyone from China. Unfortunately for me, I wasn't using ipfw as a firewall so I couldn't follow his advice. Having finally figured out how to do this I thought I'd write a step-by-step guide assuming you've not got a firewall already set up. https://www.sitepoint.com/how-to-block-entire-countries-from-accessing-website/ >Here is a screenshot of Awstats telling me that China is responsible for the second-largest volume of traffic to a certain web forum I manage. This is just for January 2015. >I also happen to know that 99% of all brute force user password hack attempts are from Chinese IP addresses. Approximately 50 to 100 brute force attempts at ‘guessing’ the passwords to legitimate user names comes from Chinese IP addresses every day on this site. >The difference between 1.9 million pages and 134,000 pages is pretty large, and 1.86GB of bandwidth is not the end of the world. But when I know that 99% of it is bogus, bots, brute force hacks, vulnerability scanners, and web crawlers, then why wouldn’t I just block China from accessing my site? https://www.reddit.com/r/sysadmin/comments/6ldngf/do_you_block_all_chinese_ip_addresses/ >We block China, Russia and Ukraine from our main websites. The majority of attempted attacks were identified as coming from those countries. Also crawlers from those countries like Yandex and Sogu were hitting us hundreds of thousands of times per day or more - not obeying robots.txt most of the time and just costing us a bunch of money for nearly zero return traffic. It was an easy decision to make. >It's a low effort, ham-fisted way of mitigating security threats. It's not very effective, but it does cut down on log spam. >By blocking Russia and China we eliminated over 99% of our failed authentication attempts. That seems effective to me. >I gotta say, the majority of hack attempt on our WHM server are from China still >Eh, of the top 10 IPs attempting brute force SSH in my logs currently, China is two and Russia is one of them. I feel like it does remove some of the spam, but not nearly as much as you'd think anymore.

>>7815 What people on imageboards think doesn't matter. Look at Cuba, who allows christianity to go on, and the DPRK whose biggest religion is cheondogyo, and China who has moved away from state atheism over the past decades. Those important countries have all determined that autistically fighting religion isn't worth it - that should be the regular communist opinion.

Can we talk about how counter-intuitive the set-up of bunkerchan is? Anonymous 10/16/2020 (Fri) 20:15:54 No. 7719 [Reply] [Last]
Guys, something needs to change. After /trash/ was yeeted from the board for arbitrary and unwise reasons, /IG/ basically turned into /trash/ because all other boards are dead and noone want's to post there. Hell /IG/ turned into /mu/ for a little while because /hobby/ is fucking dead and noone wants to post there. Don't believe me? Look at the fucking thread. This board needs generals where people can actually except to get some responses and feedback on the stuff they do. >People can just go to other boards Yeah but they don't, cuz they're dead. Look at how /IG/ turned into /mu/, that's how much of a hassle it is to post on other boards, let alone dead boards. >Those generals would take up space What, valuable space taken up by threads such as: CORN MAN BAD-thread, which rightly would belong on /GET/ or whereever trash went? >>1003375 Why explore space-thread, which one easily could argue belongs on /edu/

>>7857 1) There is more than 1 poster 2) >only slow at night so it's not a problem That wasn't the fucking point. The point is that activity and PPH is inaccurate and depends on time and subject (and numerous other details) >we made the rules for the community to serve Actually we made rules that were agreed upon by the community, and the community should stick to them. Moreover that is an utter fallacy, because the point is that activity is low at night., this has nothing to do with "muh thread getting responses" since your argument was disregarding time utterly. Nobody is going to be responding either way, so the point is nil.
>>7858 >Moreover that is an utter fallacy, because the point is that activity is low at night., this has nothing to do with "muh thread getting responses" since your argument was disregarding time utterly. Okay, the reason I am disregarding the time of day reletive to the US is that' if you don't you are doing to get results that are american-centric and only takes American needs and voices into account. This is the reason I have calculated average PPH, because internationalist perspectives and inclusiveness matters on social platforms and ought matter even more so on leftist ones. >That wasn't the fucking point. The point is that activity and PPH is inaccurate and depends on time and subject (and numerous other details) Okay, then tell me a way in which we may measure the kind of activity that goes on at the smaller boards and I'll happily try to measure that for you. Would you be more happy with an experiment where only certain hours of the day are considered, and not just for single threads, but for the entire board. Would that produce a result that in your mind would be more reliable to you? If not, then what would? Unless you're saying that comparative statistical analysis is completely invalid and you don't care about it, because then your beliefs as to how the chan is supposed to function is not based on anything I can prove or disprove. >Actually we made rules that were agreed upon by the community, and the community should stick to them.
