It seems that there is a desire for another chan exodus. Would the site owner consider hosting a /pol/ here?

I would ask for BO but I'm fine if there are other people considered as well

>1. Shitposting. Finalchan isn't really about that, it's a discussion-oriented imageboard, not shitpost-oriented. Most /pol/ boards tend to get flooded with shitposts. To which you might ask, why don't you delete the shitposts? That brings me to my next point.

>2. Opinions. Everyone's got them. If we delete something that we constitute as a "shitpost" — even if it is or isn't — it might influence backlash. Since the nature of the board is all about opinions, deleting a shitpost might still very well be someone else's legitimate opinion. Deleting someone's opinion is (usually) very poorly recieved and will be considered censorship. Now, we can say that we've not ever considered ourselves a "bastion of free-speech" like 8chan or Masterchan have, but that doesn't magically stop people from being angry. Even though we don't go out of our way to censor people's opinions, deleting something that very well can be considered an opinion (as well as a shitpost in our eyes, possibly) will cause backlash.

Shitposting is defined as any post without legitimate substance
Don't bother, there's already https://polchan.xyz
I don't think I've ever seen a legitimate political discussion on any /pol/ ever last more than a few post before turning into JEW SHILL NAZI DEGENERATE RACEWAR shitflinging. Even if this is your actual non ironic opinion, it's still shitposting, because youre not explaining your point, you don't even have a point, except that Jews/blacks/whoever is bad, and usually that kind of poster isn't going to listen to a reasoned argument anyway.
And if you try to mod that kind of discussion, those same users will immediately accuse the mods of either taking sides or being DEGENERATE SHILL JEWS themselves, and will find any evidence they can to prove it.

It's just a shitty shitty can of shit that brings out the shit inside people. Political "discussion" ruins family dinners, chans, and lunch at work, and for nothing anyway. Two sides scream at each other, and both go away thinking they are more right then they were before, and if they only just all took my simple one sided view point and did things the way I think it should be done the world would be perfect. It rarely changes anyone's minds enough to alter how they vote.

Also we don't have board owners. Boards are moded by a team to prevent any one person from imposing their will or opinions on a board.
I've got more ranting to do.
/pol/ posters are exactly as bad sjws.
They both judge peoples ideas based on their identities, they both need their safe spaces where no other ideologies are allowed, and they both gain strength from hating certain groups. Sjws and /pol/ both suffer from the echo chamber effect, and both encourage ridiculous points of view with no basis in reality. They both will target individuals and will ruin their lives regardless of the facts. Neither cares about any group but it's own.

/pol/ and Sjws are based on Muh feelings. There's no way to reason with either because their thoughts and beliefs aren't based on reason. "What I feel must be the truth, and I will search till I find the facts that support my feelings."
>/pol/ on finalchan

For what purpose? Any political discussion you want to have can be had on /r/, and any Nazi-LARPing you want to do can be done on /sp/. Fuck legacy boards.

when the fuck are you making an /int/ernational board? this will increase traffic/serious discussion as a whole for the site
2 posts omitted.
In the past, my experience with /int/ boards has been less than stellar. 4chan's /int/ is trash, 8chan's /int/ is very similar to 4chan's. 76chan's /int/ isn't trash, but it is riddled with shitposting.

If we do implement /int/, it won't allow shitposting. Since that'll be the case, it won't really increase traffic because most people go to /int/ to shitpost. I'm not saying the board idea won't be on /p/ in a few months, but I'm saying that it would be a vastly different /int/ than you probably have imagined.

The /int/ experience can be properly replicated by just including a country flag of your choice with every post you make.

Guy's probably got that 'tism in which things need to be in their properly labeled container.

Hold on, let me test somethin'.

Using a country flag should be bannable offense outside of /sp/

Russian posters really get abused the most.

can finalchan please consider using infinity next for a trial run? I want to play with it on a board that actually gets some traffic. It has become extremely stable recently. You can find an instance on https://16chan.nl

Btw, there's a migration script for vichan databases to lynxchan
The software that made all board owners global mods when added user owned boards?

LynxChan has been complete for a while.
Now it is just improving on what existed.
Thanks for the heads up, steve.
Whats wrong with this engine?

There have been a few posts asking about our privacy policies on Finalchan and here we will attempt to clarify some of them.

Finalchan does not share your data with any third parties. This doesn't mean your data isn't accessible to third parties. Finalchan allows the embedding of videos that are hosted on a number of other sites. Generally, a web browser will connect to those sites directly and in the process send information from your browser. This can be avoided with plugin/addons such as NoScript, PrivacyBadger, Disconnect, etc. and/or modifying your browsers configuration file.

The downside to these tools is that they may also hinder your experience of Finalchan. If you experience issues with streaming video, there is a very good chance that these addons are to blame. For instance, if you are using PrivacyBadger, it will block the sending of HTTP referrers to YouTube. The result is the video will inform you that YouTube does not allow playback on some sites. Disabling PrivacyBadger will play the video normally, but now your information is being sent to Google without the involvement of Finalchan. Many other tools block HTTP referrers, PrivacyBadger is only mentioned above as an example.

With the exception of embedded video, all other aspects of this website are locally hosted. Videos with the WebM file extension are locally hosted, and viewing them shares information with no entity. Themes, uploading, and some nice features use JavaScripts, which are also hosted by Finalchan. Allowing scripts from Finalchan will provide a better experience and will not result in privacy issues.

Finalchan utilizes analytic software to collect certain data about those who visit. This information includes your IP address, the browser version you were using when you visited the site, and the operating system you were running the browser from. We use this information to make decisions about enhancing the website, troubleshooting issues, and seeing which pages of the website are most accessed. The analytic software is hosted and maintained locally. We do not allow other sites or services access to this information.

IP addresses are used only for blocking troublemakers from the website. They are not aggregated, compiled, or sold to any other service.

We hope that this clarifies some of questions you may have. If there are any other, please feel free to use this board to pose them. Your concerns are of the utmost importance to us, especially regarding privacy. Also read the Rules page (there is a link at the top of every board) for further information.

Thank you,

I'll tell you an even scarier thing than this guy (>>469) did: your ISP knows literally everything you do, whether a site you establish a socket to logs anything for any kind of time period or not. And the ruthless kinds of suits, the kind that arranges you a lover nest with Bubba, deal with ISPs when they need something, not with sites. So either you go full paranoid and make opsec your religion, or you relax and let the gubmint put its cock inside you.
As far as jewtube goes, use an anonymiser to jewgle-fu what you want using the Video tab. Then copy the link without going there.

Now paste it into youtube-dl or 4kdownloader and voila! And if you don't care about size, keepvid and icyvideo. Their site takes the hit, not you!

There should be a board thats specifically for Tv shows, movies, and other forms of film.
/tv/ maybe but it would be open to movies too
Why not just /m/ for any media (tv,cartoon,music,etc) its more simple and universal, so not too many (dead)boards

Changes to board suggestion/creation system Anonymous 05/25/2016 (Wed) 00:22:11 No. 701 [Reply] [Last]
So after a year of being on the same system, we've thought of something new to add to our current system. The changes won't be added until June 1st. That gives you guys exactly one week to give feedback and such.

We've taken inspiration from 7chan's /777/ and Uboachan's /wild/, and the idea is to have a new board called Probationary Period, or /p/. This board is going to be an addition to our current system. If you want to request a board, post a thread on /r/. If it gets enough attention, we'll do a trial run on /p/. That will run for a month, and depending on how active it is on /p/, it may be created into it's own board.

Little note though, we won't run it for 30 days, but for a month. So if it's February, it'll run for 28 days, if it's in May it'll run for 31 days. This is so that way we don't get super confused with how long it's been.

This new addition will allow us to try out more boards easily, as the reason why we didn't want to try out boards before, was due to the fact that if a board didn't do well, we'd have to delete it. Where with this idea, we just clear the board and restart. This allows us to be lazy and not have to fuck with the site configuration every time we want to add a board :^)

We already have two ideas lined up (possibly three):
/pd/ - Political Discussion. This board would be moderated, and shitposting would not be tolerated.
/wa/ - Wallpapers and Art. This board would be a haven for wallpapers, all types of digital art. Unsure if music or movies would be posted here. Leave feedback for this, and suggest a better name if possible.
/an/ - Anime (??)

This thread will be the only exception to our pre-existing system, as we will be accepting board discussions in this thread if they are liked. On June 1st though, this thread will be locked.

I understand this is a long post, so I'll try to tl;dr:

New changes to board system starting on June 1st 2016. New board /p/ will act as a trial board for board ideas. Trials run for one month (not 30 days, but one month). If trial goes well, board is officially added. Core system will remain intact, board suggestions should still be a thread on /r/. Exception to this rule applies to this thread only, board suggestions are being accepted in this thread. This thread will be locked on June 1st.
13 posts omitted.
>more anime
Can it be just foreign entertainment? Even if anime is basically all that ends up on there at least I can have some chance of variation.
The changes will be happening in 53 minutes, and this thread will be locked. The first board idea will be:

/m/ - Media

More details about this board will be on /p/ when it's finished.
I should note that /m/ is the new idea for /wa/
Last minute change, the new board name will be "Proving Ground" instead of "Probationary Period". The board url will be the same though.
Tomorrow, the new /p/ test board will be:

/co/ - Comics and Cartoons

We also have a small thing going on the IRC for a Finalchan Comic Club. There are some very loose ideas, such as the book, but nothing else. The group will be ironing out some details, so be sure to check out /p/ in the coming days.

Say that one of the /p/ boards doesn't make it, would it be possible to move the existing threads to /r/? Or are they just deleted?
We do move them to /r/. This has been the case for /pd/, and will be the case for the future.
Sweet,thanks for letting me know

Post File Sizes Anonymous 09/08/2016 (Thu) 23:23:42 No. 764 [Reply] [Last]
Hello, the FAQ under "What are the file limits?" states that I am allowed to have five 10mb files per post. In practice I am only allowed to post files that have a sum < 20mb.
Example: I attempt to post three webms with sizes: 8mb, 6mb, 7mb. These have a sum of 21mb.

After the files are done uploading, I receive a message that says the server took to long to respond, and the post isn't posted.

Is this a bug or intentional?

It is likely you were uploading while we were getting DDoS'd, or one of your videos was longer than the allowed time frame…

most likely though, the server hiccup'd. Did you try uploading them one at a time ? At least that way we know if it's a specific video that is causing the issue.

I'm the OP of

This problem has been around since the beginning, and I never bothered to report it. Every time this error occurred (which happened in every thread I created) was solved by lowering the sum of the files below 20mb. This is why in those threads I constantly change from 2-5 webms per post.
you are one of my favorite posters. thanks for hanging out.
I'm really not sure what the issue here is. We'll look into this, as it's a pretty big issue. (It's probably a PHP setting that's set too low).

Take my update on youtube.js


It's the same as vichan except it allows videos to be popped out and dragged around so you can browse a board with the video still visible.

The original with ugly text buttons from 8chan is here: http://8ch.net/js/youtube.js
Thanks! We might update it to that soon.
Mind if I use this code?
