Tell me what features you want to see on a new, improved Opchan.

I already have a big ol' list, and the platforms we're considering already do some things, but I want to hear your wildest imageboard fantasies.

I'm not really going to be addressing whether or not they're feasible here, but I am reading everything.

The same goes for images. Inline expansion and mouse over preview/view. Basically how 4chan and 8chan do it.

I'd be happy with webm thumbnails. Also, this site seems to reset webm volume, whereas 4chan retains the volume you set the last webm at even if it was on another board or something.

Particularly useful when every single webm made in all of existence, regardless of content, is incredibly loud. For a webm of a quiet river stream gently trickling, I have to set it to 5% volume, turn windows volume to 5%, and then physically put the speakers to 5% so the house foundations don't crack and the house doesn't collapse in on me. Last time I forgot to turn it down before looking at a webm here I think the sound was loud enough to kill my neighbor's dog.

Aside from that I'm happy with OPchan as a website. Everything relating to the website itself has been awesome for me. Just keep it up I guess, I don't really want it to change drastically from what it is now.

Could you link to a site that uses that? I don't get how that would work with a post that links to more than one post.

This site has inline expansion. Click on the filename.
Mouse over play and mouse over view sound annoying, but I guess they could be turned on or off as settings.

We got a plan for that.

As for the message box, why not just scale it bigger?

On the other hand, the site could remember how the user resized the message box, so that it would retain that size on future page-views. How does that sound?

I Can't Post/Embed Videos
Under KusabaX's standard embedding code, you only had to paste a YouTube video's unique video code into the embed field to post it (e.g. "L6UhFkUo9xI"). Now, you will have to paste the entire URL into the embed field (e.g. "http://youtu.be/L6UhFkUo9xI").
>> No. 109088 ID: c9fe43

The proper way to do that is to have a little click and drag arrow in the response box, so you can resize it to whatever your heart desires.

8ch.net has it in the top right corner.

That's why it's an option to click on and off :P

Back in the day when I visited the 4chan /hr/ board, I wished the OpChan boards accommodated the large file sizes that HR allowed. Maximum file size allowed in /hr/ is 8192 KB.

Nice, that opens up a lot of new content to spam dmz with. Ever since 8chan's limits were raised to 8mb and then 12mb, there's been less and less available to post.

yeah kind of like when you want to post a reply or a new thread you'd be able to preview (see how it would look) before posting.

so if you're posting a reply it would give you a page of the entire thread up until that point with your post at the ens of it.

for a new thread it would give you a page with only your thread (one post).
>> No. 109171 ID: ea8f9f
That, LynxChan doesn't have. Each post has a "[Preview]" link in the post header, which takes you to a webpage consisting only of that post. It's not actually a way to preview a post before posting.

Honestly, that would be a nice feature.

Don't fix what ain't broke

I know you faggots want to make unneeded changes just "put your mark on things", but you all are not good with computing technology and you're likely to fuck up and do something retarded. Opchan is just fine as it is right now, the conservative thing to do is not make changes and fag it up for no good reason. Of course you queers won;t listen to me, but stay away from tinyboard & vichan platforms, the people who developed them are malicious bastards and the developed those warez specifically because they knew that more imagebaord admins are stupid with computarz (like you) and wouldn't recognize all of the built-in flaws, backdoor, etc.
If you want to be smart about imageboard programming write your own software. notice how stable 420chang has been through the years? rolling your own give you full control over everything, you know where all the wires & switches are because you built the system. sites on vichan and tinyboard haven't been lasting too long.

and the guy is almost completely silent.
Neither platform was given much consideration.

Like Jedi said, >>109153, we're focusing on LynxChan, which is under active development, and whose creator hangs out and shoots the shit with developers, site admins running his code, and regular Joe Blows on irc every day. He's put up with and answered my questions for well over a month, now.

And honestly, I'm not aware of much else in the imageboard software world that isn't developed specifically for one site.
>> No. 109179 ID: 13f512
I'm not sure why you all insist on making everything a metathread.

>Opchan is just fine as it is right now

I guess I'll chalk this up to ignorance or not listening to my updates... no it's not. The software is failing and broken more each day. We can't even run basic cleanup scripts anymore because they go nuts and delete active content. Internal statistics are completely broken. The code is a nightmare.

If you're going to write a new imageboard for us to use, better do it quick.

>Things are falling apart
>Let's use mongodb
I really do appreciate the work you guys put into this, and understand that all options are fucking shit...
But for your sake and sanity I hope that having a chan on mongodb is like walking through a minefield with very small feet.

A couple questions
1. Whats the timeline to make the jump?
2. Will threads be able to be moved over, or will we start fresh?
>> No. 109183 ID: 8c968b
Any way we can just have a simple but working image board? No need IMO to get all fancy with features and shit. Or just have whatever 4chan has currently. I dunno if there is any way to just copy the code as is and run it? I am not into computer shit.
>> No. 109184 ID: 13f512

I get that there are some mongodb concerns, however in this application I think we'll be alright, we're not exactly doing anything fancy.

1. Sometime this summer, depending on time. I am actually working with real developers (my gift to you, not opchan money) rather than trying to do it all ourselves. I think that will help ensure we get a solid product that won't shit the bed.

2. We will migrate all the existing threads. There will be some concurrency with a test instance, and any threads created on that will get nuked and replaced with opchan's current content.


That's actually the goal. When I say I have a list of features, we're mostly talking about front end stuff to get it closer to the current functionality so people aren't confused by anything, and addressing some long-standing requirements like webms and shit.

You can kind of copy websites but not really meaningfully without having access to the server. At least with this solution we're working with the guy who wrote the software so any issues we run into he can address directly.

Just so you know I have a plan. :)

Basically if we implemented everything according to these notional dates, at this point the changeover would happen mid-June.

That having been said, I anticipate moving all this back a bit to make absolutely sure we have everything set up the way it needs to be. Also I will be traveling and doing other shit in the middle of June, so figure at the very earliest late June, early July.

I don't want to rush anything for obvious reasons.

Facetious, mostly. I didn't really read the schedule. I'm more shocked that there is a schedule.

That's the kind of shit project managers on a construction project with subcontractors and drop dead dates. It's our shitty imageboard. Just do it. (But test it.)

Mind blown. However, this is OS-specific behavior. Windows is downloading the file to a temporary location on your machine, then uploading it to the post form from there. Other OSes don't seem to do this:

Additionally, having a File URL field is more intuitive, and having the server handle grabbing the file from its original source directly is more efficient.

That kind of thing would just add the selected markup to the message box, maybe surrounding selected text in it, I guess. Could be useful, but we're trending towards >>109172, again.

We have /n/ for that, and a conscious decision was made to not have animated thumbnails for animated gifs on this site, if I remember correctly. Considering some LynxChan config weirdness, we might be stuck with animated thumbnails on the new site.
>> No. 109220 ID: 13f512

I concur with >>109219, Bats. This is an imageboard after all. That kind of functionality sounds like something a browser add-on might address more comprehensively.

By way of update, we've selected and secured a new server which will be suitable for both testing and being the new production server. It is vastly superior to our current hardware and also cheaper. For now I am just paying for it, but obviously once we switch over you, the OPERATORs, will take on that financial burden. It's only $33 a month though so in theory it is sustainable forever with the current patreon income. (thanks patrons!)

If you glance back at the schedule you saw some tasks related to testing Lynxchan 1.8, so in addition to working on getting everything customized just right, we are also, for once, on the bleeding edge of imageboard technology.

Senseless has been working tirelessly on this, so make sure to thank him if you run into him on the interwebs. godverdomme, ihc, and a few other folks have also been very helpful as well as the lynxchan dev, StephenLynx.

What I could stand to see would be a "front page" setup thay is somewhere between what a chan does and what reddit does. While we don't have, and hopefully won't have, an upvote/downvote system, having a the title page show the five or so threads with the most recent activity from all boards would be nice. With the present traffic level, it'd be much more convenient to check in on the title page to see if there's been any new posts, rather than hitting /k/, then /g/, then /vg/ then /t/ and if I really hate myself /n/.

Threads shown on this title page could perhaps behave like stickies where they only show the OP and latest 2 replies. Would make it fairly compact and at-a-glance. Perhaps it could even remember users via a cookie or some such so you could specify which boards you want to see in this feed.

I'm not sure if this is a function that is even possible with any of the code that is being looked at, but it's in my wishlist.

And no, not an active reddit user or anything, I just can see a possible benefit.

And I guess for everyone else, there are several features available in LynxChan that accomplish roughly this goal, and which we will be using. The front page will display the text from recent posts, along with recent images. There will be an /overboard/ board, displaying the most recently bumped threads from throughout the SFW boards. Additionally, users will be able to specify their own multiboard, displaying the most recently bumped threads from their selection of boards, by building the appropriate url. In your case, you could enter www.operatorchan.org/k+g+vg+t/ and have all the boards you care about on one page.

Too many specialized boards was a big problem, already. Post it in /t/.

Fewer boards.
When people come for the first time, they expect a dynamic community and hiding interesting posts between boards sections the community. I only interact with k, t and DMZ out of laziness, and only n and meet seem additionally necessary. You can replace trade with a sticky on t, and possibly same for meets. Also, a front page with curated, interesting threads would be a nice touch.
Also we need someone in charge to collectively hate, can we give opchan to Broseph or something? (I joke though)

As a potential workaround, it may be possible to set wordfilters for references to post numbers that will appear in the future.

For example, ">>130012

The site was dying without mods, and now it's dying with mods. I honestly wonder if the lack of mods drove away people who preferred some level of moderation, and now a lot of the people who are left are the ones who prefer a lack of moderation and are themselves being driven away by its presence.

OPchan has always been pretty namefag-heavy, and forced anonymity would tend to break the community atmosphere that we have. Would more people honestly flock here to be among fellow anons, when that's the experience they already get on the more major chans?

Operatorchan is currently in the "recovering from diaspora" stage, if it ever actually had one.

>> No. 110089 ID: 13f512

just email senseless or post about it here. That particular issue may not get fixed, usually there won't be a captcha, and even if there is the idea is people would get a block bypass
>> No. 110090 ID: bd9907
I would prefer that bug reports be placed in this thread, so that other posters can see and comment on them. Once posts are migrated, this thread will still exist on the new site, and discussion of bugs can continue.

I've discussed this bug with StephenLynx, the developer of LynxChan, and he is aware of it. With JavaScript enabled, file selection is handled in JavaScript, and this isn't submitted with the form, when the browser submits the form on an 'enter' event. I've added a front-end modification to the list I've developed to hopefully have the 'enter' event captured in JavaScript and handled properly.

Jedi, the block bypass isn't the panacea I thought it was. Block bypasses aren't tied to IP addresses, so some malicious person could obtain a block bypass and then copy the resulting cookie throughout a botnet, and the bots would be able to submit a combined hundred posts before needing a new one. It would be more effective with a lower post count restriction, but that might begin to become more onerous for Bat Guano or similar posters. That said, to StephenLynx's knowledge, there isn't a Directory Dumper program that works with LynxChan, so this may be a moot point.

In any case, I set the site up to always require answering a captcha to create a new thread.
>> No. 110213 ID: 4e024b
Hey guys! For the new site- is there going to be any countermeasures against, say, someone hacking mod or admin credentials and being able to see IP addresses? Maybe hashing the IPs by default? I think that would be a pretty useful and good feature 👍.
>> No. 110214 ID: bd9907
The LynxChan site has a setting so site staff below a given level only see hashed IPs. However, it can't be set so that no-one can see clear IPs. At least Root users, currently Jedi and I, will be able to see them. It currently is set so that anyone down to a Global Volunteer (moderator) can see them. Keep in mind that if someone compromises a Root user's account, they'll be able to change that setting.

The site also has a setting so poster IP information is stripped from posts after a given number of days. This is currently disabled.

LynxChan's poster ID feature, when turned on, is different from that used here. IDs for a given poster will change from thread to thread, so you can only tell which OPERATOR is which within the context of a single thread. The plan is to have an add-on written to again have site-wide poster IDs.

In general, settings have been selected to be similar to the setup of this site. However, none of that is set in stone, and we welcome feedback from members of the community on these issues.

Finally, the site is set up with SSL, though you have to enter https:// to go to the site securely. LynxChan does not have an option to redirect http requests to https, though that is another add-on we hope to have.

Possible way to attract users: Convince the leadership of a small country to restrict all internet traffic within their borders so that operatorchan.org is the only website they can access.

I know this sounds unfeasible, but bear with me:
Some people will get around it (around 10% in the first week, but around 30% by the end of the first month), but it's bound to drive up the traffic by a little bit. If the country has a population of 500K, and 300K use the internet, we get a long-term bump of 210K users.

I'm thinking that having the ability to click on a post's (poster's) ID and be directed to a View All Posts By <ID> page would be attractive.

Personally I think it's advantageous because if you implement this feature people can then very quickly have a list of everything a poster has said - that hasn't already expired, naturally. This I can, in my opinion, be a very useful and popular feature.

We're planning on sticking with LynxChan's thread-wise poster IDs, now. You'll be able to tell one OPERATOR apart from another within the context of a single thread, but the same OPERATOR will be assigned different poster IDs in different threads.

1. Expand that little Irc section to a full list of off site communities we can keep updated. We have a steam community and I'm sure plenty of us have consoles. I guess the Facebook group is still around.

2 Put up a high traffic trash board like /dmz/ that's easy to access. Last time this site had a good influx of traffic was 10 or so years ago when /k/ came here from other chan going down for a brief time. I like specialty areas, but we need a place with high activity and general banter. Basically this >>111337

Of course mobile friendly would help, but I suppose we can use the app.

Mostly, we need to encourage more posting, too much rules kills the board. I came here looking for info on the government shutdown. It's almost the happening that half of /k/ has talked about for a decade, nothing in news why isn't that the first thing I see?

Good ideas
>> No. 112767 ID: 9affbd

1. Enable catalog view.

2. Have a /WSG/ section.
-Sticky with educational webms that teach from how to start shooting all the way to advanced skills and long range.
-Another sticky listing board rules & etiquette.

3. Advertise.
-Get people to come here.
-Turn this into a refuge from 4chan's /k/
-Make shit lively
-Convince the mods to actively or routinely post new content, people will at least check in to see what's changed.

4. Once there are enough visitors, try tactical gear raffles in the PBE store to help raise money & keep site afloat financially.
-Say an item costs $150, Make 15 spots at $12/each. Once all the tickets are paid for, make a .webm of the drawing using a number randomizer or dice, something. That raffle would bring in $30. Eventually prizes get cooler.

Bring back the PBE store, but do it right this time.
-Maybe work with Ivan at the kommandostore or something.
-Talk Ivan into buying more awesome milsurp and sell it on his site... like those Marine Corps fleeces or the marpat packs. Or do that for the PBE store and raise some money.
-Let patchbros use a page on the PBE store to hock their wares. Someone makes an order, it goes to the patchmaker, payment handled through a payment system and the patchmaker gets his money once he sends proof of postage.

5. Find someone to do or post series regarding various weapon assemblies/disassemblies while explaining the functions and benefits behind each design on /st/.

6. Make a /meet/map
-Get someone to help make a map or an overlay for google maps/earth that shows public land where people can shoot, ranges, military museums, battlefields, etc.
-Set up a /meet/ calendar for events, keep it updated

7. Create a /diy/ board

This may be a stupid question, but aside from youtube, what other video hosting services could we embed on the new board?

Currently I see Dailymotion, Vimeo, and Liveleak. Could we include Bitchute, Full30, and/or other hosting sites? With youtube's faggotry towards censorship, freedom, and firearms, I don't think it's a bad idea to encourage other hosting services whenever possible.

The main thing I'd like to see is a mobile friendly /b/ /t/ /k/ dmz whatever type thing that keeps an active and largely unmoderated (minus illegal activity of course) thread rolling so we can see and engage in something that's continually active.

Not everything needs to be categorized, what we're missing a crap filled chan style thread that has any and everything from the latest shot in hoboken news to whatever other irrelevant bs we might want to discuss that day with other anons.

After that whatever, make it a social app with an opchan themed wiki or something.

This site offers 2 things, social banter for like minded people and a database of their combined knowledge and opinions. What it lacks is the /k/ type thread that brought many of us here nearly a decade ago when other chan was down.

Let's be real there's a community here of those us who have been on mIRC, meet, gaming community etc. Let that be what it is and then let us have our "anon" banter. I miss this place but I can also see posts I made on here 5 years ago...

A knowledge archive is great, so is the weird community thing, but we also need that dynamic ever changing thread that's continually relevant for the day, but not for 2010, and if it's accessible by phone all the better.

Site works perfectly as it is without javascript.

Please don't FUCK US OVER by switching to something that requires javascript to post.

Also, be careful not to fuck over us Tor users; some chan software attempts to block Tor users by default.

Vichan software is nice, runs on PHP.


Best VPN? They're all dogshit.

Use Tor. I won't even touch and of the chans without Tor these days; too many CIAniggers.

Oh and to quote one Wilhuff Tarkin:

"I maintain that the effectiveness of the Star Destroyer stems from not only its massive firepower, but from its
size. When [mouthbreathing right brainers] look at a Star Destroyer and then compare it to the craft which might be mustered to attack it, they have a tendency to dismiss such a notion as suicidal rather than approach the problem tactically."

Got a new chan software and a way to port all the content on the existing site over?
>> No. 113680 ID: f09940
Opchan didn't die, it was murdered. By circlejerks from IRC and Discord bringing their nepotism to the boards. By the admins halfassing absolutely every fucking thing. By moderation having a laff while parasites like Clio settled in and systematically "cancelled" old guard posters that made half of the content because they thought the flame wars were funny. By the site inexplicably drifting Liberal or "everyone is dumb but me" "neutral" during the runup to the election five years ago.

If anyone who ran this place gave one tenth of a fuck about it or any of the people who used it, it would still be plenty busy. And the only reason there is "no way" to adapt the old content to new software is because the bitches whose job it was to make it happen had no will to find one.
>> No. 113691 ID: ee79a5

What "canceled" the old guard was not Clio, but the blatantly obvious Russian shills shitting up every thread, and the tone shift that came with it. Seriously this place took a turn that made stormfront seem palatable in the lead up to 2016. The discord definitely slipped even further and just concentrated the degenerates.

The fact that you think this place turned *more* liberal in the runup is astounding.

Yeah, 2016 made people believe that all Chans were WN territory.

Instead of shitposters, I just wanna shitpost about guns and warfare. I don't care if you're as black as the ace of spades or white as the driven snow. Keep you new world IDPOL the fuck away from me.

Except you are wrong. I remember seeing threads with people drooling over rhodie gear and yelling about niggers as far back as 2011. I tried to search the archives to find people ranting about it, and how "/k/ is getting taken over by stormniggers." The truth is, its always been this way. You can't just blame election tourists, pic related is as far back as I can get the archives to take me. 2014 isn't as far as I would like, but it goes well before your 2016 "invasion date" narrative.

The truth is, there will be and has always been a split like this in the community, going farther back than /k/ or 4chan itself. Its two unwilling archetypes that will always hate each-other, but are forced together as a pair.
>> No. 113761 ID: 7a5d59
But thats not overt racismus, thats just some dude who wants to grab an SKS and go inna woods.

I remember the Rhodie posting and the occaisional "I hate nignogs" posts but I a) don't remember it being as bad as this, and b)they never got the attn. they do now.

The OPchan I remember was fairly Libertarian on everything.
>> No. 113763 ID: f0ece9
There is no such thing as "racism." It's a made-up nonsense word coined by Leon Trotsky, a Communist Jew, used to silence working-class Whites whenever we try to speak inconvenient truths.

One of those truths is that human beings are naturally, instinctively, tribal and territorial. We instinctively have preference for our family and people who are like us. It is grotesque to pretend otherwise. A race is merely an extended family. These are our best and noblest instincts.

The people who want to disarm us are the same people who see South Africa as a model. We didn't start this war. It was brought to us, and shutting up and bowing our heads meekly isn't going to make them go away. Hoping they'd get bored and fixate on another target is what got us here.

This is why firearms ownership by Whites is inherently political, just as every attempt to disarm us and make us helpless before the mobs of stunted little brown IQ-55 mystery-meat invaders and colonists (((they))) have brought in to replace us is inherently political.

I get it. You just wanted to grill. You're about sixty years too late on that.

We're not voting our way out of this, not here, and even less so in the UK.

If you don't like politics in your firearms discussion, maybe Tumblr or Reddit would be more your speed. Good luck with that.
