8ch Attention-Hungry Games 24

Last Round: >>66174

Archive of Past Rounds:!BA8V0KYD!eRw01c3zLKSa3wzSEHE00g (Updated to Round 19)

Hello /sudo/. Some time ago, CodeMonkey wanted to try a Hunger Games event for advertising boards using the global announcement feature. Now that I made a thread on Thursday, I'm not as worried about not getting enough nominees as I was last thread. I may run this on Saturday night after all.

For the 8chan Attention-Hungry Games, any board with less than 300 users can nominate themselves to participate, with up to 48 boards being able to participate (or we can go to 24 or 36 if we don't get enough boards for some odd reason). These 48 or so boards compete on a Hunger Games simulator hosted on BrantSteele. The current code for the regular events as of this writing is at which is based off of

The Mansion code that I used once but regretted using afterwards is at from >>>/hungergames/17115

Anyway, the winner gets to be advertised as a global announcement for about a week.

As for the requirements for signing up:

1. No boards that promote raiding other 8chan boards.

2. Must have less than 300 active users at the start of the game.

3. Can't have won the hunger games in the past week. Last week's winner is >>>/fukemo/

4. Need to submit a SFW sentence that advertises their board that CodeMonkey can put in the global announcement. (NSFW boards are welcome to join, but the announcement should be SFW). Failure to do so will result in anons deciding your sentence via dubs, usually to your detriment. CodeMonkey will be the one to determine what is and what isn't SFW as he controls the global announcements.

5. It is recommended you post a picture with your nomination, and that picture should be square as it will be stretched otherwise. I will determine the gender of you tribute based on the picture. If I can't tell, I am defaulting to M. Also, MLP images will be ignored unless it came from a MLP board, if the BO approves of it, or from a certain image for /suicide/ until their BO says otherwise as they had that certain image before I added this part of the rule.

6. If a BO of a board does not want to participate, please don't nominate it. Board Owners, if you don't want to participate but someone nominated you, please let me know before the start of the round and I will remove it from the list. As of now, /miku/, /jp/, and /startrek/ have asked not to participate.

7. Nominate only 1 board per IP hash per post. For posts that nominate more than 1 board and an IP hash nominating multiple boards, I will take the first one and ignore the rest, and I will know if you are samefagging. For those with VPNs, note that someone may be using the same VPN as you when nominating, which means they may have the same IP Hash and I can't distinguish VPN users from normal ones.

8. Once a round concludes, please wait until the next thread is created before you nominate a board.

The next round will start

Saturday between 6pm and 8pm ET (if we get 48 nominations by Saturday morning)

I am aware that running this on Sunday night gets in the way of 8chanmania, so I guess I am willing to try Saturday night if we have enough nominations, even though it doesn't work as well for me. That being said, I don't want to put in filler if I can help it, so I may run this on Sunday if there are still empty slots by Saturday morning.

With that all being said, nominate your boards now and suggest some events for either code if you want (or even better, put your events into the mansion code since I won't mind people messing with that code. Just let me know if you do update it). Also, if I missed anything, let me know so I can correct the OP for next time.

Inquiring minds want to know.

Board Active User manipulation

Ron, you ought to take a look at this, and you should consider letting us know how Active Users are calculated, because the CIAniggers and script kiddies (looking at you, /leftypol/) clearly know already.

Hello devs. Where should I follow latest updates of OpenIB?

The GitHub repo hasn't been getting commits for months, but obviously as >>40654 shows there's a lot of fun going on here, alive and kicking.

I had been running my own imageboard instance for years, starting all the way from Tinyboard, vichan, infinity, infinity-next, then eventually OpenIB. Really hate seeing all of those becoming abandonware, so thanks and please keep up the great work!

UNDENIABLE TRUTH 8CHAN ADMINISTRATION IS LYING ABOUT WHAT IT RUNS ON ITS SERVERS deliberately removes parts of its codebase from the OpenIB software. I will list the removed functionality below. You can evaluate this yourself by visiting and downloading the archive posted by the hacker.

1. The Alacrity Daemon

The Alacrity-related code is removed from the public OpenIB release. The files associated with Alacrity are: inc/alacrity.php, inc/alacrity2.php, alacrity3.php. If you evaluate you will see that Alacrity is not publicized here. If we peek into inc/config.php.php from the hacked version, we can also see configuration related to Alacrity. Here are the configuration variables:

// Alacrity
$config['alacrity'] = array();
$config['alacrity']['enabled'] = false;
$config['alacrity']['host'] = '';
$config['alacrity']['port'] = 80;
$config['alacrity']['options'] = array();

2. Image deduplication

Image deduplication is not implemented on the open source version of OpenIB. If we look at the hacked version of config.php, we can clearly see:

// Image dedup. See inc/instance-config.php for how to enable it, more than one config option needs setting.
$config['image_deduplication'] = false;

This does not exist on the public OpenIB. See: It does not exist.

3. Various features and stuff that has not been implemented.

1. The Nerv Center is not public.

2. The oath implementation used for banners is not implemented. OpenIB does not give you a banner implementation at all (and neither did Infinity; czaks has to re-implement it). The files related to oath are oath.php, oath_authorize.php, and oath_whoami.php. Not to mention code related to it in the templates.

3. Several features taken directly from the changelog are not implemented on the public OpenIB. Here are a few examples:

>* Added Request board backup button to the Board Owner dashboard under Administration.

>* Implemented CAPTCHA check at 0% of file uploads.

>* Added a tripcode whitelist option for Board Owners.

>* Added antinecrobump functionality to deletions;

>* Added new super secure tripcodes.

>* Fixed [-] button in the catalog;

>* Fixed tile resizing bug in the catalog (Very Small, Medium and Large tiles were resized to Small after clicking on [Show All]).

Why are these things not public on OpenIB? You were queried about this long ago on the tracker ( to which you replied:

>We dont publish our anti-spam efforts.

>Doing so would be akin to keeping your poker cards face up and trying to bluff that you have a royal flush when you really just have a pair of Jacks.

Yet none of what I have mentioned is related to antispam functionality at all. These are all usability or convenience related features, that have no reason to be hidden.

So I ask again: Why are these things not public on OpenIB? 8chan isn't open source.

So now /b/ mods are openly encouraging anons to raid /pol/ with CP.

Can we please FINALLY do something permanent about /b/? The half-measures have not done anything but make it worse. If he kept his shit to his own board that would be fine with me, IDGAF. But this crosses a pretty significant line IMO.

Images keep disappearing

Why the fuck do images still keep disappearing? It's been 8 months since the hack, fix your site already.

Here's a recent example: >>>/kocsog/4155

The images was there a few days ago, here it is archived by the Wayback Machine:

And here's the archiving from today, which shows the 404, in case someone reposts it meanwhile:

I know that I can repost it somewhere else, I've spent hours finding the missing images and then hunting down copies that match the sha256 hash, sometimes without success. I wouldn't whine if this was missing since the hack, but now I have proof that this one disappeared recently. How? And why? Don't you think you should do something about it?

50 char report limit

Holy fuck, can you please disable this.

I used to get detailed reports on my board but now all I get are simple "guy is acting like a faggot" things which require me to look through the entire thread to see what's going on.

Who's fucking idea was this?

I am curious as to why a mod who has quit still has access to all the mod tools, still uses them to dox people, and why nobody seems to have a problem with this.

The state of /n/

I realise /sudo/ is not generally for board meta but /n/ is a board that gets special front page attention and should as a result maintain a minimum level of quality. Nothing is being done about this spam, give it to a new BO if you must.

/sudo/ feature request thread

The nerv center is cute, but please consider:

Bobber - prevent thread from being pruned/slid past end of catalog

Whitelist/Blacklist board option - approved posting IPs instead of only having a ban list

Have Mod actions return to mod.php/reports instead of index.html

I saw some other neat features requested month or two ago, but I can't find the archived threads, so anons please add them and use this as a general feature request thread

Imagetrips - An idea to reduce CP through public VPNs/proxies

I propose an image tripcode(imagetrip) system to reduce the posting of CP though VPNs. An image trip code works like a regular trip code with respect to how it is produced.

When a poster wants to make a post containing an image/video or embed through a public VPN/proxy, he enters his imagetrip password in a field allocated for the purpose and the system generates a trip. Then, the produced tripcode is checked against a Pre Approved list of tripcodes contained in a database table column. If the tripcode matches an entry in the database, the post goes through. Otherwise it doesn't.

Pre Approved list of image trip codes

Here I describe how the approved list of trip codes is produced. To get his trip code into the approved list, the user has to first register the tripcode for approval. Once submitted, the tripcode becomes usable only after a week of submission. During this week the user can only make text posts though public VPNs/proxies. Posts containing an image/video or embed are not allowed during this time.

After a week of submission, the trip code gets automatically approved and added to the database table of trial tripcodes. From hereon, that particlar imagetrip gets approved to post 50 images during the 2nd week, 100 images during the 3rd week, 200 images through the 4th week. After 4 weeks have passed, and if the posted has posted at least 100 images by this time, the trip code gets added to the table containing the Final approved list of tripcodes of the database. During any stage of the approval period or even after the trip code gets approved, if the poster posts an image that amounts to CP and gets banned for it, that trip code gets removed from the approved list and he has to start all over again.

Points I emphasise

1. Under this system making text posts through public VPNs/proxies will never be affected. You would never need any trip code ever to make text posts. This will work just as before.

2. The approval process is time dependent as well as number of posts dependent

3. Image trip codes are not displayed publicly or identifiable to global mods or Board owners or volunteers. The entire process takes place behind the scenes. If a user posts CP and gets banned for such his imagetripcode gets removed from the approved list automatically.

This protocol is intended to slow down and minimize the posting of CP through public VPNs/proxies. It will not completely stop it

Bugs report

I think it's a good idea to have a thread to report misc bugs in, that don't need a whole thread.

It may be good to sticky this too, so all users that have to report a bug can do it here instead of clogging up the index. Thoughts, CM?

hey maybe I am just retarded but if I want to make two boards under one mod account so I can see them both in mod php dashboard how do I do that, I tried just using the same name but it told me it was taken
