8ch Attention-Hungry Games 65

Last Round: >>90628

Archive of Past Rounds: https://mega.nz/#F!BA8V0KYD!eRw01c3zLKSa3wzSEHE00g (Updated to Round 40.)

Hello /sudo/. A long time ago, CodeMonkey wanted to try a Hunger Games event for advertising boards using the global announcement feature. I'm back after the holidays, and I'm ready to start 2019.

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). 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 http://brantsteele.net/hungergames/r.php?c=9y76DMs7 which is based off of http://brantsteele.net/hungergames/r.php?c=FlMMyAqW.

The Mansion code that I used once but regretted using afterwards is at http://brantsteele.net/hungergames/r.php?c=9nWM8wfc 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 >>>/clang/

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/ and /jp/ 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 board 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 likely start Monday somewhere between 9am and 11am ET

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.

Sunlight on Sunshine

About Sunshine

Earlier, Sunshine came to my attention again after the source code for it was posted on freech's /intb/ board (https://archive.is/6sPs7#selection-2161.0-2205.53). Since users were concerned about it, I investigated the Sunshine code and looked back through my logs to figure out exactly when it was created, why it was created, for what purpose, and exactly what it does.

When?

Sunshine was created on October 9, 2015.

Why?

On October 8, 2015, the 8chan Administrator (who, at the time, was Hotwheels) received an email from the American authorities, who were concerned about a post on 8chan threatening an attack against a school in the Houston area (http://archive.is/lVsJe). Because of their incompetence, the 8chan Admin received a scanned picture of a photocopy of a printed 8chan post (pic related). The post in the picture (dated October 1, 2015) indeed contained a threat against a school in the Houston area, but due to the bureaucracy of the authorities, it arrived approximately a week too late and the original post had already been deleted.

Purpose

Sunshine was created by Hotwheels on October 9, 2015 after we discussed a way to make sure kids didn't get killed. It was meant to help prevent potential school shootings in the future if the shooter(s) happened to post specific threats on 8chan (i.e., bomb threats, shootings, etc.). Sunshine was neither an imposition nor a request by third parties. The pros of Sunshine were believed to outweigh the cons.

What Does It Do?

Sunshine takes the IP address and message of a poster, pads it with a few bytes of junk data, encrypts it using a RSA pub key, then stores the encrypted data. This data remains in encrypted form with decryption only possible by Hotwheels. With the way it is set up, nobody will be able to read anything on the Sunshine database unless they get access to Hotwheels' laptop.

Sunshine Security

When creating Sunshine, Hotwheels used a 2048-bit RSA public/private key pair with the openssl_private_decrypt() and openssl_public_encrypt() functions. The public key was stored on the server as sunshine.pem and the private key was stored on Hotwheels' laptop offsite - precisely because Hotwheels thought 8chan could be hacked one day (it was and here we are). Hotwheels told me which folder the key was in on his laptop in case he ever suddenly died and I needed to use Sunshine.

When Was It Used?

8chan gets around half a dozen requests per year from the authorities, mostly because of threats. Usually the authorities are quick and the data is still on the boards. According to my records, Sunshine was successfully used exactly once to help the Australian authorities.

How Long Was Sunshine Active?

Sunshine ran from its inception until early 2016, a period of turmoil for 8chan. During the Great Posting Crisis, it was culled to gain performance and improve posting. Sunshine was re-enabled in September 2016 and remained active until April 1, 2017. Sunshine is now disabled and will remain disabled on 8chan.

The Way Forward

I will be open-sourcing 8chan again and Sunshine will be included as a commit with instructions for any future imageboard admins who might want to use it. I have since asked Hotwheels to destroy the Sunshine private key and, on April 4, 2017 at exactly 09:56am GMT, Hotwheels destroyed it, thus ensuring Sunshine can never be unencrypted.

Of course, I have chat logs and emails to back this up, which is why I am able to give you so many details on such short notice.

Now that this is out of the way, I have mod.php to fix, boards to restore, and a website to run.

Power Abuse and Snooping on /b/

Hello, the story in short:

1. The moderator known as Omlet uploads screenshots which show that he's stalking posters.

2. I create a thread* to ask him to either stop doing it or admit he's trolling. He does neither those things and in fact he admits collecting "dirt" on users. At one point he threatens to ban me for "spam".

3. The board owner Dysnomia permanently bans me with reason "No u" (as seen in pic).

My perspective:

1. Omlet abuses his power to stalk on posters by keeping track of their ID's.

2. Dysnomia, known as a friend of Omlet's, apparently condones this power abuse and removes dissent.

3. The /b/ board has a power abuse problem and a violation of anonymity problem.

What I want:

1. I want my permaban removed, because I've done nothing wrong.

2. I want Omlet gone, because he is a stalker and a snoop.

3. I want Dysnomia gone, because he enables people like Omlet and Hex and condones their abuse of power.

I showed a lot of patience in that Omlet thread, giving him a lot of time to reconsider his actions and de-escalate the situation, only to be permabanned for it. These people abuse their power. As such they are not worthy of having that power.

Can't Manage Board through ONION service

I'm trying to manage my board through Tor Browser on TAILS but when I click the link for managing my board I just get en error that the page isn't redirecting properly.

Also when I try making a post using the onion service the system thinks I'm trying to upload a file even though I'm not and it won't let me post.

Invalid video files

Codemonkey-kun, may I ask what 8ch uses to validate files uploaded by users before either discarding or putting them on display?

I know there are general rules such as "MP4s can only contain 1x h.264 and 1x AAC bitstreams, WebMs can contain 1x VP8/VP9 and 1x Opus" but there seems to be something beyond that going on as of late.

Ever since ffmpeg 4.0 dropped on my distro I've been having a 50% chance of my fresh encodes getting accepted by 8chan for no discernible reason.

They all use the same encoder options and recommended structure but some get rejected and some don't, with little to no rhyme or reason behind that.

It seems to be limited to VP9 video bitstreams for the most part, though I've also seen it happen with h.264 encodes.

Sometimes re-encoding the Video at a different bitrate can fix the problem, sometimes waiting for a libvpx/libavcodec update then re-encoding with identical options gets the file accepted and sometimes nothing werks, not even switching resolutions and encoder profiles.

I suspected some fuckery on the part of libavcodec so I compiled libvpx for myself but it keeps happening, downgrading ffmpeg also didn't amount to much.

None of the discarded webms show any signs of corruption or standards deviation, they play with no issue in mpv, VLC and Firefox/Chrome.

Updates to 8ch itself also seem to have no effect whatsoever, the first webm this happened to is some six months old and it still gets discarded when I try to upload it.

What could be at the heart of this issue?

What is the point of 8chan?

"Make your own board!"

There's no point. Users congregate behind the same legacy boards that exist on ever chan. This is a totally useless feature. The non-legacy boards that do exist are largely just general threads reconstituted as boards. The only truly unique 8chan board to attract a large audience, /intl/, was specifically targeted by the site's ownership for destruction and taken away from its owner.

"A haven for free speech!"

Initially marketed as a haven for free speech, 8chan is now in many cases more moderated than either 4chan or reddit. The same cabal of powermods that exist on either of those places has developed on 8chan, due to the fact that board "owners" have total power combined with no oversight. In response they say "make your own board!" but as mentioned above, this is pointless due to legacy board squatting and disingenuous due to the hostile treatment towards actual dissident boards.

"Cutting edge image board technology!"

For whatever reason dudders decided that 8chan needed to be the cutting edge in image board technology. So he hired Joshue Moon of all people to do it for him. Nobody even wanted infinity next in the first place but he pushed it to the point that he lost his website. 8chan offers no innovation in this regard, and any attempts at innovating have ended in miserable failure.

So what are you left with? Well the only thing 8chan really has going for it is that you can post with a proxy, but many of the popular proxies are in effect permabanned and torposting disallowed due to the aforementioned absurdly overthetop moderation policies of the larger boards. So 8chan really has nothing going for it.

In the age of Trump, where the importance of access to social media conglomerates like Twitter and Facebook is of paramount importance in order to fully participate in civic discourse - the "make your own board!" refrain chimes increasingly hallow. The Mark's of 8chan ironically increasingly sound like Mark Zuckerberg - "make your own" being a mask for "shut up you don't deserve to speak". And if you can't speak on 8chan then…

…what's the point? It's an open question.

8ch Attention-Hungry Games 64

Last Round: >>90142

Archive of Past Rounds: https://mega.nz/#F!BA8V0KYD!eRw01c3zLKSa3wzSEHE00g (Updated to Round 40.)

Hello /sudo/. A long time ago, CodeMonkey wanted to try a Hunger Games event for advertising boards using the global announcement feature. Almost time for the holidays so I hope you all have a nice Christmas. I will NOT be around for the weekend after this upcoming one so this will be the last one for the year and then I will be back for 2019 due to my schedule being busy next week.

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). 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 http://brantsteele.net/hungergames/r.php?c=I84Z6LP3 which is based off of http://brantsteele.net/hungergames/r.php?c=FlMMyAqW.

The Mansion code that I used once but regretted using afterwards is at http://brantsteele.net/hungergames/r.php?c=9nWM8wfc 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 >>>/throat/

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/ and /jp/ 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 board 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 likely start Monday somewhere between 9am and 11am ET

I should definitely be around at this time as the only thing I have planned will occur in the evening.

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.

Individual Embedding

I've asked before, but it's apparently fallen off the board; so here we go again! I'd like the BO to be able to decide on individual embedding. For example: I run a SFW board, so I would like to keep youtube embeds, but disallow pornhub embeds. As it stands now, the choice is either all or none. Obviously, it's not a hugely important issue, but if it can be considered, that would be awesome. If you can't give individual for each allowed site, perhaps you could split between two SFW (youtube, vimeo, etc) and NSFW (redtube, pornhub, etc) options? Thanks!

Please remove annoying image collapse js

This code is fucking annoying:

//  scroll to thumb if not triggered by 'shrink all image'
if (e.target.className == 'full-image') {
scroll = true;
}

It executes whenever you collapse an image after expanding it. What it does is cause the page to scroll back up to the top of the post. This is very annoying if I am trying to view all the images in a post and I want to collapse an image before moving to the next because now I have to scroll back down.

I know this code is the culprit because I set a breakpoint on it, edited `scroll = true` to false, and it didn't scroll. Fucking fix this.

That file already exists

That file already exists

This is the most useless validation measure anywhere on this whole site, especially when it comes to popular reaction images. It's obviously in place to help conserve storage space, but it's easily circumvented by 1) modifying the image to change the hash or 2) adding another image to the upload since the hash is computed from the combination of all images rather than each image individually (really dumb, imo).

So… if you have the ability to identify an existing image, why not just reuse the reference to it? This would eliminate the need for the dupe image restriction altogether.

Client hangs when making new thread

JUST FUCK MY BRUCE UP

Gookmonkey, you need to do something about the long delay/indefinite hang that occurs after clicking the submit button to create a new thread. This is especially annoying for me when I am trying to go full Bruce. What happens is this:

>My client sends request to create thread

>Long wait ensues

>Thread actually ends up being created, but 8chan fails to immediately send the response back to my client

>My client sits and waits forever and often times out completely. In the early days, this would break my Bruce because, if the response doesn't return with the new thread ID, my Bruce dump loses context because it doesn't know what thread to post the rest of the Bruce segments. I later implemented a fix where I enter the thread ID manually to keep it from breaking. However…

>This still fucks up my Bruce because, while I am sitting here waiting for up to two minutes for the response, faggots come into the thread and start wrecking my Bruce tip with gay shit like nah and DENIED and nope not today. Even though the real objective is to go full Bruce before the mods can stop it, it really pisses me off when faggots make a mockery of the situation.

Please look into this issue and FIX IT so that, when you click the button to create the thread, it creates it INSTANTLY.

Could you please add a button to each page that enables a user to download all images in that thread in one go so that the user doesn't have to go through and manually right-click download each one?

same thing happened to cock.li mail some time ago. now it's 8chan.

they need to make it read-only to make a full copy of database with single timestamp, then to use it as evidence in court.

FOREIGN POLICE OWNS 8CH

FOREIGN POLICE IS OWNER/MOD OF ONE OF 8CHAN BOARDS

8ch.net/vichan/ is modded by Polish police forces, 24 hours per day, 7 days a week. Even during christmas. They remove everything what is against Polish law. But this is american website. Why they are allowed to do this? and why 8chan accepts mods that are literally police office? and not american police but foreign police?

I think it could even be against american law to give mod access to Polish police and have them enforce Polish law on american website. instead of american law. I am considering reporting this to american police.

The original /vichan/ board owner was Patryk Adamczyk, a Polish guy known for snitching and cooperating with police. He gave them mod accounts here and maybe even gave them owner account. Previously, he was a moderator on vichan.net imageboard and he did the same thing, he gave mod accounts to police.

Here is a list of proofs we have that Polish police is fully controlling /vichan/ :

-they are online 24/7, even during christmas. their reaction time in removal of content illegal in Polish law is 5-30 seconds. it's not even one person, they have entire team there in the office, and they work in shifts. When one officer goes to home, another one is there to replace him.

-they always log to mod accounts with Tor so 8chan won't see that they connect from IP's that belong to Polish police forces.

-they made a following wordfilter (you can test it)

8ch/vichan jest monitorowane przez dyżurnet 24/7 => 8ch/vichan jest monitorowane pod kątem zachowań homoseksualnych przez NOP i ONR 24/7

that means in english:

8ch/vichan is monitored by Dyżurnet 24/7 => 8ch/vichan is monitored for homosexual behaviours by NOP & ONR 24/7

Dyżurnet = name of unit of Polish police that monitors internet 24 hours 7 days a week for illegal content (in Polish law). https://dyzurnet.pl/en/

-when one /vichan/ user wrote post about suicide, they instantly contacted with 8ch and demanded her IP address

http://oxwugzccvk3dk6tj.onion/transparency.html

>8chan received and ignored one (1) request from foreign (non-US) authorities - the Polish Department of Recognition of the Office for Combating Cybercrime of the Police Headquarters requested "all data (IP address, email, telephone number, first name and last name) allowing to identify" the creator of a thread on /vichan/;

-they track user posts, try to connect posts with stylometry and even show it publicly. It starts from here: http://oxwugzccvk3dk6tj.onion/vichan/res/1104.html#18435

isn't 8chan designed to be anonymous? but they track users and make "accounts" of them in their police files.

-when we got tired of their actions and censorship, we made a polish board on another chan. if link to this chan is posted it is manually removed within 2-20 seconds, even if link is hidden in image. no matter what time of day it is, they remove it within few seconds, even from images. you can try it yourself. post something like this: https://lolifox.org/poland/ or try to hide link by other means.

-they also seem to be owners or mods of /rzabczan/

/rzabczan/ and /vichan/ have same wordfilters and similar mod actions

Polish police owns every Polish board on 8chan. it is american website. I want american law and american free speech, not polish soviet censorship. I demand foreign Police to be removed from boards on this chan. Remove them from mods or nuke the boards.

Or is 8chan one big police site, where american boards are managed by american police, polish board by polish police, etc. ?

If you want to stop the site from bleeding users like it's currently doing, claim the boards from 4chan, the so called 'legacy' boards.

Users go there because they're the boards they know and thus it ends up having the most people. And despite being the most active boards it's still claimed by random faggots who run it as their personal playgrounds.

And don't give me shit about 'just make your own board', we've all time and again seen new boards split, fail, and have the people just leave the site.

The worst board on this site

I'm voting for /v/, it's the most cancerous place on this whole website.

It went from a board which was like a mix of /k/ and /a/ with some user moderation and unlimited dubs where everyone pushed for freedom to a tyranical no fun shithole full of autistic weeaboos, shit taste cuckchanners and where shitposters roam free and nobody checks gets.

Worse yet, it's userbase defends the vols and the board as vemehently as 50% of them defend Nintendo, including the literal kike BO Mark which also deletes any criticism or negative remark against Nintendo

Do you feel like there is an even worse board?

If so, which one and why?

Preserve Transparency for Thumbnails

PNGs containing transparent pixels generate thumbnails where the transparency is replaced by a solid color. This is not noticeable on boards where the CSS background matches the solid image color, but, in boards like /cow/ that have a dark greay background, it is very noticeable and detracts from the board's aesthetic appeal. Pic related shows two versions: The image on the left is the thumbnail where the transparency has been replaced by a solid color. The right is what you see when you click/expand the image which shows the differenct between transparency and no transparency. Please fix this so that my Bruce dumps look more immersive.

Improve 8chan's APIs

I like to do extravagant modifications with userscripts, but I feel bad using the current json files because they're way bigger and slower than needed. There's things that I can't do smoothly because of that.

TL;DR: Let me request for the time when a board was last posted in, and when the settings were last modified. Do a small tweak to threads.json or add a similar file.

1. Allow me to find out when the board was last posted in, if I can request for this one bit of information, I will not have to keep loading catalog.json or something huge like that over and over. It's especially troublesome if I want to keep track of many small boards that don't update often, it's a huge waste of bandwidth and processing power. For example for /improve/'s you'll have to keep re-loading and processing over half a million character's worth of JSON for several days even though nobody has posted anything the whole time, and that's just 1 board. I literally just need 1 integer for a given board, I can then compare against that value and request catalog.json ONLY if something new has actually been posted. Bonus points if it's possible to request these values for multiple boards in one go.

2. Similarly, allow me to check when the settings on a board were last changed. Stuff like posting limits and other options are a huge pain to extract from the HTML (and I think you can't even get the bump limit from it), I'd much rather load the settings.json, store it in localstorage and keep referencing that, and re-load it if it has been updated. I wouldn't mind if this value was bundled with the last post time.

3. Not as important as the other two, but it would be nice to have a file that's optimized for auto-updating the catalog. In other words it needs to contain only the information that actually changes: threads' last modification time and reply/image counts, and thread number of course. threads.json is very close but not quite there, and the last modification date doesn't change if the thread is bumplocked, which is silly because it's correctly positioned in the array anyway so I don't see any benefit to locking the modification date on it. There's no need to load everything in the universe every 10 seconds, you can load catalog.json or whatever when you detect a new thread.

Why doesn't 8chan have an active meta board?

This site claims to promote transparency and yet it provides no dedicated avenue for the discussion of its operation and direction. Almost every major board, being heavily rulecucked, bans all meta discussion - leaving no place on the site to do it.

8chan should add a global meta board, otherwise it just seems as if this site is run at the behest of the unaccountable, all-powerful supermods who run the major boards.

Josh would never have tolerated this…

Board claim/loss confirmation

So, /arda/'s probably former BO here.

I can't access the BO account. I am aware I hadn't logged on for a while, so if it was claimed, it was likely legitimate. I just can't be entirely sure. So I was wondering if someone in the globals could perhaps confirm if there was any successful claim during the last 2 weeks or so.

Vimeo embeds not working properly

Pic related was the code I could see in the inspector. If I replace manually

with this:

<iframe style="float:left;margin: 10px 20px" type="text/html" width="360" height="270" src="https://player.vimeo.com/video/66333178?color=ffffff" webkitallowfullscreen="" mozallowfullscreen="" allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0"></iframe>

then it works.

The video ID appears on the embed code, as seen on this:

data-params="&66333178&"

but it isn't being inserted in the player for some reason.

Additionally, there's no thumbnail displayed, the vimeo logo is shown instead.

Generate thumbnail of pasted clipboard image

I suggest generating a small thumbnail of any images we paste into a post from clipboard. This way, we know what's being pasted without having to first paste into Paint or elsewhere. You could display the thumbnail in that blank, gray area just to the left of where it says ''ClipboardImage.ext".

In fact, while you're at it, why not just generate thumbnails for all images, even those added through the traditional browse method?

8ch Attention-Hungry Games 63

Last Round: >>89729

Archive of Past Rounds: https://mega.nz/#F!BA8V0KYD!eRw01c3zLKSa3wzSEHE00g (Updated to Round 40.)

Hello /sudo/. A long time ago, CodeMonkey wanted to try a Hunger Games event for advertising boards using the global announcement feature. Sorry for this being late, I was rather busy Thursday and was sick as fuck yesterday. I considered not doing it this week because of being sick among other things, but I'm here now and feeling a bit better so I'll do it.

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). 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 http://brantsteele.net/hungergames/r.php?c=zjqWBnst which is based off of http://brantsteele.net/hungergames/r.php?c=FlMMyAqW.

The Mansion code that I used once but regretted using afterwards is at http://brantsteele.net/hungergames/r.php?c=9nWM8wfc 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 >>>/eris/

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/ and /jp/ 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 board 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 likely start Monday somewhere between 9am and 11am ET

Mandatory overtime is a thing this weekend. If I wasn't fucking lied to about being able to dodge it via working overtime over the week, I would have been able to not work tonight and I wouldn't be this livid. I guess that's yet another asshole I won't trust at work.

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.

Privacy policy

1) Why is it a PDF (https://media.8ch.net/privacy.pdf)? HTML is better and would make it readable on mobile.

2) It's irrelevant if US law does not require sites to have a privacy policy. You clearly receive and process personal data of EU users and thus need to publicly state how you use and handle that data to comply with the GDPR. Brazil and Mexico also have GDPR-like laws.

With all this in mind, the privacy policy is clearly in need of a significant update so please consider this feedback.
