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,
-Admin

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.
>>776
/tv/ maybe but it would be open to movies too
>>776
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]
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.
>>735
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]
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
http://finalchan.net/e/res/1949.html
http://finalchan.net/e/res/1232.html
http://finalchan.net/e/res/800.html
http://finalchan.net/an/res/70.html

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.
>>767
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

https://github.com/fatchan/vichan/blob/master/js/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.

I think the question was, what data are you afraid of being intercepted? Your cat pictures?
It's just a suggestion anyway. You're running vichan software, IP's aren't hashed through admin login. I mean, if you're really okay with your admin password leaking at some point in time, it's not my business.
SSL/HTTPS support has been added finally!

When forced anonymity is enabled, it makes the default /sp/ name (Normie) into Anonymous.
you found the cheatcode. Now even normies can be anon.
This is an issue that I'll try to figure out how to fix in the near future. It shouldn't be too hard, but you never know since it's tinyboard.
