Just thought I'd create this thread where you can post any bugs or problems with the site you encounter. And also for me to post any big changes I made.

Been a long time since I worked with NPFChan. The scrambled json can be turned off in setting and is not needed at all (unless you want it, but it was never fully hashed out and polished feature). The way NPFChan saved the archive was that it just saved the html files generated as I remember and copied the accompanying files (not sure what it kept in the database if anything except the thread info). It didn't do any alterations of the files (except fix the links in the html to the new locations) from what I remember. But to be fully frank I can't remember how I coded it all for the archive - part of the problem remembering is that there was a two tier archive system set up (that evolved over time). If you turn off the scrambling of json, and easiest next step is perhaps to creating a script that reads the json files one by one (in the archive) get the thread id from it and rename or save a copy with the correct thread id.

Can the Overboard get a clickable button at the bottom of the screen that loads the next page? Sometimes it doesn't register that I've scrolled down enough or completely.

Video Thumbnails

When you post a video webm, sometimes the thumbnail displays at a point within the middle of the video, instead of the beginning of the video. This is somewhat annoying, because it means that the thumbnail spoils punchlines and developments that ideally should be seen in order for the joke to work.

Is there any way to fix this?

>Damn i miss 8chan, i only used it a few times but. to me it represented something Great about the old internet.
It was one of the last havens for chan culture, I believe that with the end of the site it brought about a disarray among anons who have now resorted to the various alternate channels or simply moved on towards pursuing their own interests, etc.
Either way, the memories of h8 chin lives on and the ride never ends.

Blogpoast
OP back again.
I'm still getting used to the boards some.
I'd like to make it to a movie night for once. I'm usually on my gayme in the evenings, but I check /mlpol/ pretty much every day for new happenings, but I'm spending most of my lurking time over at 4chins.
So much garbage there. It takes time to sift through all the bullshit to find an actual decent thread there, and when I do it gets shitted on by around the 10th post/reply.
I'm not bitching about it so much as I am just reporting my observations tainted by my opinions.
I went to 8chins/pnd yesterday and it's become bullshit. Really not much to talk about from there.
I'm not a ponyfag, but I don't find it intolerable like some retards that refuse to visit this site.
I've also tried to shill ZeroNet on 4chins some.
You remember that, right?
After 8chinsnwent down, a bunch of folks went over to the 8chins ZeroNet site which some anon had set up already.
It's a p2p-type interwebs.
Accessing it through the Tor browser is a bit of a pain in the ass, so I started using Chrome browser with a VPN.
I should be okay, right?
I mean, I'm not fedposting or siegeposting, even on here, but I'm starting to feel like the Government is backing me (us) into a corner with vaccine mandates.
This is not right.
I mean, Klaus Schwab, Bill Gates, and company don't care about the average person, nor will they ever.
They want their big reset and I've pretty much blackpilled on all this.

Pls remember to sage in all fields.

Probably getting one of the private proxies that are outside the banned VPN ranges. Or set up our own VPN with a range that isn't banned yet. But sometimes if you funpost good enough the mods will let it pass.

Bump Limits
Anonymous
No.5974
5981 5987
Has anyone else had the feeling like the bump limits on this site are too high? They're much higher than those of other sites like /pol/ and /mlp/. On /mlpol/ threads stay up for years at a time, and I feel like it's broken the spirit of our old "no generals" policy. Maybe it would be healthier for discussion to have lower bump limits and simply have Anons make new threads when old ones hit their limit, to prevent stagnation.
I think they've been extended twice before since the start of this site on request by some Anons who were in certain long-standing threads, but i feel like that might have been detrimental in the long term.

I think it could be better to go back to smaller bump limits, though. I don't like this 1000+ post status quo. I feel a bit inclined to help reverse it because I feel partially responsible for causing it; requesting that my favorite threads just be extended because I was too lazy to make new ones. I've slowly come to realize that that may have been to the detriment of site quality.

I think we could at least reduce it. Maybe cap it at 500. That would still be more than either /pol/ or /mlp/.

I think it could be better to keep the same bump limits, though. I like this 600/700+ post status quo. I feel a bit inclined to help keep it because I feel partially responsible for conserve it; requesting that my favorite threads just be kept because I was too concerned not to make duplicated new ones. I've slowly come to realize that that may have been to the improvement of site quality.

We had normal bump limits for at least 2 and a half years, maybe three. The long bump limits are a new thing.

Hiding poster IDs and flags
Anonymous
No.5097
When you choose to hide poster IDs, does it also hide all flags? Pardon my asking here, but it seemed less obnoxious than making a test thread. I wanted to know because I had an idea to make a thread in which hiding flags would have been preferable.

Haven't found time yet. Been lots of IRL stuff going on at the moment, but I will try to get it done when I find some free time. Once I get to sit down and do the coding it should hopefully not take too long. It depends on how much I have to change the database and underlying code and functions fetching data from database. But to give an estimate I would not think it would take more than a day or two once I get the time to sit down and do the coding and testing.

Would an option be possible to randomize flags within a thread while keeping them consistent with each ID? So if you're assigned Australia randomly when you start posting you'll keep that flag when posting in that thread.

Should be possible but I would have to do a little thinking on how to assign flags and how to implement if implementing it. Have not thought about it or discussed if this is an option that is desired to implement, but I will add that idea to a list of potential options to look into.

Its probably a mix of won't and can't. I mean, for a savvy developer (all other criticisms aside, Pupper IS that) nothing is technically impossible. I mean there might be a way, depending on how many IPs you used and how many post-deletion PWs youve racked up but what you requested would be prohibitively labor intensive and really not serving any purpose other than satisfying you at a down moment.
No offense, but thats really not part of the underlying purpose of the site.
For one, that would remove threads and posts in discussions which would likely fracture and render difficult any later readings of what threads remained. No offense, but 'your feels' do not justify destroying site content.
For two, the only time I can recall staff requestedly removing content is when it accidentally contained doxx or illegal materal; and when I say that, there was an artfag once who requested all his posts/OC be wiped cuz reasons, and the general reception was 'sorry u feel that way but no, lul'. Hope you feel better though

It's alright. No offense taken. I know I've been a dramafag, bordering on sadcow, ever since I started using this site. I guess I felt guilty over the years for providing so little insight or entertainment in exchange for dumping blogposts and drama on people. Not even just here, but Discord, Ponytown, 4mulp, 8mulp...you guys aren't paid enough to be my therapist, so I'll do my best not to burden you with it from now on. Pic related to that though.

Egh. Anyway, I understand I can't just banish the past. It just means that I have to make something good of it or let it fade into obscurity.
>how many IPs you used
Uhhhhh. Let's see. Dad's, grandpa's, mom's, two different phone plans, a broadband plan, at least three dozen separate public wifi sources, my current workplace...all spread out over CA, OR, and NC from 2017 to today. Plus I've phoneposted, laptop-posted, and desktop-posted. So. Yeah. It would be a really convoluted hunt to find every post mentioning homeless life or life in Cali/NC.

Thanks again for responding, Ninjas.
