Changelog and to-do

I've decided to publicize my changelog and to-do list for the site. I'll edit this pinned post rather than making new ones.

Stats & plans

Statistics Since it's been discussed recently, I thought I'd publish some stats from Cloudflare for the previous 30 days (though I don't plan to do this regularly). >20.83M requests A "request" isn't the same thing as a "visit" or a page loading, since each page makes multiple requests. A more accurate measure of usage would be: >336k visits, 1.25M page views as measured by Cloudflare. >2-3k unique visitors per day Indian IPs are dynamic so it's probably a little less than this, but not by much—the IPs are usually pretty consistent within 24 hours. >traffic from the US and Netherlands Mostly VPNs. >trends over time? By bandwidth, there's been a 66% increase since May; by visits, 88%; by page views, 82%. Most of the new traffic is probably from 4chan, Reddit, and perhaps old users rediscovering the site. Plans * Currently we only have 4 active jannies (including me) and all of them are grass-touchers so they aren't available at ungodly hours. This was the situation on all previous iterations of Inch—I think we're actually faster at removing things—but I still plan to hire more jannies from the Groomcord server. * I haven't abandoned the plans of improving the site's CSS, but all my attempts to restore the old CSS so far have ended in disaster because of incompatibilities, so I'll have to code some of it from scratch during my next holiday break. * We will definitely run out of server space at the current rate, so I plan to upgrade in the next couple months, though it'll cost more. * I have received a grand total of $0.00 in donations in the half year since I restarted Inch, despite having spent a few hundred dollars so far. I will add more payment methods soon, but I'm also considering adding unobtrusive advertisements.

Why was my thread deleted for no reason? it was the thread with the highest bump count on all of inch, and it is not even present in the archives. I need an archive of the full thread puranavid, and a reason for the deletion

How about you start reporting CP threads instead of just replying to them and then blaming us for not removing them? Thanks.

Serious post

I've seen a lot of pictures of women getting deleted seconds after they're posted many many times. It's a common occurance at this point and to expect a women's picture to disappear at anytime isn't surprising at all. But everytime there's CP links posted it ALWAYS stays up for atleast 90mins. Never have I seen any CP links being deleted within 30 minutes. And I'm active here all day. I report CPs multiple times right as they're posted but as >>2182 says I believe there's some janny who's deleting the reports so they don't reach the other jannies/admin. Or this could be a hub for rich pedophiles to "secretly" buy and sell CP. And these 90min intervals are already informed to the pedos in some other private forum.

Jaldi jaldi ek /x/ board banado janny

R: 5 / I: 1 / P: 3

I believe there's one (or more) janny who's a reddit insider who deletes all the reports before the other jannies see it. They make sure the other jannies don't see all the shit threads and baits being reported. They make sure all the garbage threads stay up, trying to make this a better and comfier place for the redditors. As I'm writing this it just hit me, who'd want to make this a better place for redditors other than puranavid herself? She wants all the inflow to make this website bigger to make money selling ads and narrarives. Puranavid if this isn't who you are then I'm asking you to weed out the insider. Go ahead and setup an investigating unit if you want to. But make sure you actually MakeInchGreatAgain.

Hey janny are you planning to promote this shithole on other forums with really smart people ? Most of the boards are pretty much dead and if you post you get half brained retarded replies

Idea to clean the boards

Add filter to every word possible and don't tell us which words have been filtered. None of the threads would make sense and most newfags will leave as it'll be too much work for them. But pretty sure puranachamar will not do it because he just wants more people flooding this board so he can eventually post ads and make ₹20 every day.

I'm here to ask for a reservation system. I want 20% of the posts in each board reserved for the SC/ST community and 10% for the OBC. This website strifle the SC/ST/OBC community by not responding to their threads. Even if they do the only reply they get are chamar, bhangi etc.

Board request

Make a request board like /r/, all suggestions/tools requests/torrent requests/information requests go there. Most legitimate requests are drowned out by the constant incel and chamargram posts, nufags have invaded the site. It'll be helpful to have a containment board, I have access to a lot of resources to fulfill requests and will do so if I get a place to look at all of them at 1 place(picrel).

Weird image bug

In the process of automatically pruning old files about an hour ago, an odd error was encountered and a few currently used files were deleted. I suspect it was caused by a race condition. If you see something like picrel, it wasn't deleted by a janny but was accidentally pruned. I really despise the buggy Lynxchan code and understand all your criticisms of it, but there's really no better alternative. Anyway, I have some ideas on how to prevent this error in the future. Edit: Yeah I figured out what the problem was, won't happen again.
