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.

R: 10 / I: 0 / P: 3

The problem with Indiachan is the mudslime soy-jannies that we have. They're basically trolls. They delete all the best threads; they raid and spam Indiachan just for the fun of it and so that they can justify tighter, more pro-Muzzie measures, and they're probably glowies who are logging all of our IPs too.

Name a FEW ADVANTAGES any IMAGEBOARD has over a TRADITIONAL PLAIN THREADED FORUM like MyBB / Xenforo / Vbulletin style forums

you know besides wanting threads to disappear ( again i dont know why you would want that in the first place, you could always get rid of low effort bs threads in traditional forums too ) & little else, whats the advantage of an imageboard really? . you could stylize a traditional forum & tile the threads too so that they look attractive & easily identifiable (vs boring threads) . perhaps i missing something thats right infront of my eyes. then what it is it? is it just a zoomer / millenial preference?

Ten-hour site outage

R: 9 / I: 0 / P: 7

Multiple feature requests

I have some suggestions to make this website better than the shithole it currently is- 1. add a very tough captcha(something similar to what has) for all new posts, and add the current one for every reply. hopefully, this will prevent raids and drive low quality posters away, the current captchas are tok easy 2. add an option for imgops and archiving for every thread and reply. the imgops option works by using reverse search website for images, and the archive button works by redirecting the user to 3. enforce a pay to remove captcha pass, and keep it cheap to meet hosting costs. you can also look into captcha services which pay for traffic. 4. disband the Groomcord server, and move to something more privacy friendly like ssl secured irc or signal. 5. hire more jannies, and ENFORCE quality control. delete all low quality reddit posts 6. shill this website on places with an intelligent userbase, to get people to contribute

On the raid

This is the first time that Indiachan got seriously raided (not just a few Finns making better-quality posts than the average Indiachan user), and most boards were hit pretty badly. Fortunately two jannies were online and able to end the raid after a couple hours. . It seems to have been conducted not only by Americans but by Hindi-speaking Indians using VPNs, based on the involved users' post histories. . Since these things will happen more often as the chan continues to grow, I've taken / will be taking a couple steps this week to prevent raids from being as destructive: 1. The CAPTCHA mode has now been set to difficult. 2. r9k for posts (not files) has now been enforced across all boards. 3. This weekend I plan to upgrade to a paid detection service and prevent all posting from VPNs. Before you guys start complaining—they technically weren't supposed to be allowed this whole time, and it was only from a desire to save money that I didn't upgrade from the very beginning. You will continue to be able to view the site passively from VPNs or Tor. 4. Currently when a thread is bumped off the catalog, it is automatically deleted forever and there's no functionality to restore it. I plan to modify the engine this weekend to send these threads into a trash bin from which they can potentially be restored up to 3 days after deletion, so that such threads aren't lost in a raid like this.
