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

also enable http2 and cache validation

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.

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 :)

Default names changed to "Snigga" for now. I'd like to get some suggestions on what else we could do. (I'll make them cycle randomly)

Some suggestions from posters so far:
