hi! Anonymous 11/13/2019 (Wed) 00:01:43 No. 942 [Reply] [Last]
Hi! can you pls say how to make the create a new thread link instead of showing the default forum? That is awesome how you did that, i wonder if i could incorporate it into my board. If you have paypal i could donate to you for helping.
1 post omitted.
no the [Start New Thread] feature like 4chan and npfchan has. Users have to click on it for the posting form to show. Can anyoneone pls tell the code to incorporate that into my own board?
i love the new thread and hide links, on top of the posting form, its like 4chan or npfchan. I will pay anything you want if you gtell me how to incorporate it into my own board.

ALSO-- its very nice how you posted for ppl how to install lynxchan in your article. I use a ssl key instead of a password, so your tutorial did not work. Here is the code that Joe from Mewch.net posted a few years back, it works fine.

0) sudo apt install sendmail
0.1) sudo sendmailconfig

1) apt-get update && apt-get upgrade && apt-get dist-upgrade

2) curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_10.x | sudo bash -

3) apt-get install -y nodejs

4)apt-get install unzip curl ffmpeg imagemagick

Message too long. Click here to view full text.

Your FE is the best ive ever seen, and its the only one i ever seen that has the link to show the posting form. It is also awesome in other areas too. Would you be willing to sell me the entire FE so i can use it on my board?
Disregard pls, i got it! I didnt know you had the fe on git. I will donate to you.
>>942 Hi there, send me an email, we can get in contact and I can walk you through how to do the button if you're interested. Short answer: Javascript.

1. Can you give us the ability to embed vids?

2. Could you also put in an option where instead of uploading a file, one could just put in the link of an image location and the image would be uploaded instead? 4chon.net did this.
1 post omitted.
I would totally second all of that.

Think of the Tories btw. ;-)

Ah, is it safe to upload a picture? What metadata is visible about the picture we upload?
Where can we access the feature list?
If you read the source code, lynxchan uses exiftool, which is a command line tool to remove exif data. That's as far as it goes, I think. Everything else should be intact, so nothing personal like what OS you're using, location, time, or camera data.
please please please give us access to the features list so we can give you our opinions before you spend time and effort implementing them!

Will we ever get the ability to make our own boards?
8 posts and 1 image omitted.
Im all for freedom, not anarchy
Just request a board and if others are into it will be made. Im not opposed to anons requesting boards and having power to mod own board though, if some anon is well versed in subject and very interested it might make sense for them to run it, with BOss and/or global mods to set ground rules
Don't do it. We don't need pedo and leftypol boards popping up.
Not going to happen
>Imblying that the dead boards where why 8chan is kill
I just want /bmw/ or /32/ and /fringe/

For the record xchan is (pretty much) kill, everything but the shitposting & meta boards got deleted. /x/ or /fringe/ would be great.

it has been multiple days since board has responded
board owner*

also what happened to the cute girl on the home page
I assume you are referring to questions in the AMA thread?
I know BO has been busy, but I'm shocked he hasn't made himself more available for Anons amusement
She hasn't gone away, just taking a break. This is our third time in little over a month with new mascot. BO is just keeping things fresh it seems

How does 16chan bring in users? Do you have any tips for advertising one's website?
16chan got lucky IMO, It was shortly after 8 was shut down, 4cuck started to really go to shit (as in shittier than it was before) Then the weekend of the Pewds vs ADL event, BO (and a few other BO's from loose nit group of boards) came up with a Top Kek larp of a fake DM between PDP and ADL. They posted a thread it on 4cuck that went viral that night(possibly other sites, I witness the thread and posts on 4cuck myself) and every one that saw it followed link here to see if it was legit. Anyone, with half a clue, knew it was larp, but a really good one IMO

>In short 16chan got very lucky launching during multiple converging happenings.

I dont have then numbers myself but I suspect that that first week and a half the site gain a lot of loyal posters and lurkers.
For the next week or two BO had a very small, very slow, comfy board and put a lot of time in, tweaking bugs, and responding directly to Anons questions and suggestions. You could probably find a lot of BO replies in threads that managed to make reply count limits to be auto-archived. I think most of us started to feel like we knew BO, about as well as you can ever know, an online friend.

To my knowledge BO never again Advertised or Shilled 16chan himself nor did he ever suggest to Anons here. Many Anons did however start threads with discussions on how to do this ourselves. Most Anons, rightly so perhaps, opposed the idea. They feared advertising 16 would only lead to getting on the radar of shills and shitposters from 4cuck and the like, they were right of course. I'v recently seen the board slow down a little but seems new anons like your self keep showing up quite regularly. I assume anons still quietly pass the info around but in a more discrete one on one way, perhaps some of those Anons actually go outside sometimes and have frens IRL

While your here, why not tell us how you found us?>>876

When I post in a thread I have to reload the page to see my post. Not even clicking refresh helps. Anyone else experiencing this issue?
4 posts omitted.

Seems using "Post a Reply" works fine, but "Quick Reply" is still bugged
