noot literally says there that we are getting WEBM and mp4 soon.

This will be addressed soon. I'll need to increase space on the server in anticipation and find a proxy close to Scandinavia for optimal bandwidth speed so it isn't buffer-city.

A lot of fixes has been applied this weekend. We're nearing a usable experience on standard vichan. This is the last major thing that needs to be addressed.

Oh and also some flags are wrong (if you see a Scandinavian flag it's 99% likely correct, but a few posters, whose IP addresses are in a block that have been reassigned from one ISP to another are experiencing incorrect flags. It's not a common occurrence, but it happens. I will need to parse the updated IP block data…)

Aaaand it's here! webm + mp4 is now supported.

because admin doesn't really seem to care about tinyboard forks for some reason. it's very easy to add backlinks in any of the popular forks like vichan(here) or openib, or even the original tinyboard. why backlinks and posthovering isn't enabled is confusing, because it takes two lines in the config files and are pretty much essential to imageboards.

perhaps noot should focus on improving what he has instead of starting from scratch, because evidently vichan is more than capable of high performance and styling:

Thanks. I started looking into NPFchan, but I caught the flu right at the start of this week.

There's so many things that need to be done. I'll get to all of them as soon as this clears up. I appreciate all the input.

For now:
>Thread refresh enabled
>Posthovering enabled
>banner.php script stolen from lainchan.org implemented (thanks!)

Clear your cache to see banners.

We're switching to a modified version of Lynxchan soon. I've modified the visuals so it's pretty nice to look at. However, I will make multiple themes you can choose from (dark/light mode).
With this come support for webms, multiple file uploads, all flags fixed. IDs will be easier to see, since they become like 4chan with a colored background.I can't wait to see what you'll think!

(HTTPS coming too on the new site)

Update: All boards will start from post ID 1. I'll keep a backup of this version, but save any thread/images you wish to keep, as this board will be replaced by something better. It has occured to be that it's not worth it to migrate.

why dont even enable any of the actual decent javascripts like quickreply and ajax posting?
auto-reload, etc?

a lot of them are really useful and it's braindead to enable

it takes 30 seconds to fix while you wait for some new board software

i dont even browse this place, but i've helped both vichan and openib so i feel ashamed for scandinavia seeing this lazy setup

2c773 No.47

also enable http2 and cache validation

how can you want 3chan or lynxchan over vichan lmao

they have no features and hog resources. just modify vichan instead.

I was long contemplating these 3 options:

>Start over, make a new imageboard software (a pointless exercise, reinventing a wheel that has been invented way too many times.)

>Start a new repo, make vichan improvements. This was my plan so far.
>Get new software, there's better imageboard software out there.

However a new opportunity has potentially presented itself. It looks like 3chan may be willing to share their private, closed-source version of Futallaby with us. I don't want to make any promises yet (I do not have access to any code at the moment), but if they do decide to share it with us, we could be seeing something very close to 4chan on here. I offered to help finish the software to make it suitable for open source release, and make it compatible with the 4chan API extension.

Exciting times! What do you think? Stick to vichan, or switch?

If we migrate to new software, I'll make sure to do it during late hours, and have all the prepwork done beforehand. For example, I do not intend on starting over completely, so I'll be engineering a piece of software that can convert the format of vichan posts into a format that is supported by Mitsuba (the software that powers 3chan).

You can see an example of the 3chan software in action over at https://3chan.co.

Default layout of it is imo terrible and changing it drastically seemed to be pain in the ass because of the way it does html manipulation, tho using kohlchan's fork of it and changing css to like it's here could be easy.


20f1a No.25

sounds nice noot, the current software is kinda off to the point of making the experience slightly worse.

Are the current servers in Canada expensive btw?

6f214 No.26

It's not too bad. It's my own private server that I have reformatted and repurposed for Nordchan, so there's plenty of power on it. I use it for running experiments that take a long time to finish.

That's why Nordchan is relatively fast. :)

It will get faster though, when we get the newer server.

With regards to software, stock vichan (our current software) is really not the best. I'll find a way to migrate all the current posts over to either lynxchan or somewhere else, and see if I can make transition over to lynxchan pain-free. I gotta evaluate if 3chan is gonna let us use theirs, they've been silent recently.

Maybe they're just busy :)

Add catalog on the top so you don't have to scroll down all the way everytime you want to access the catalog.

Also, add Tomorrow theme

I'll need to check how much of it can be retrofitted onto vichan, and how much needs a rewrite.

I'll take a look at the catalog button.

A general practitioner, you can specialize later through research papers and journals.
