DDOS?

I think someone is trying to DDOS Allchans?? The front end was fast still since its usually 100% cached by cloudflare and 0 downtime from it, but the back end slow.. using 400% CPU. Flipping “I’m under attack” on in cloudflare fixed it instantly… so everyone will have to deal with the verification for a bit!

I was going in to make some updates, but I guess I’ll wait a few more days for things to settle.

neoChan – Dead

neoCafe is an imageboard/textboard website created by vulkr. It’s goal is to emulate the old style of early 2000s imageboards & textboards. What makes it unique is not only the community, but the features is presents via the imageboard software, Kokonotsuba. They have a regular /b/ board but also the /coffeehouse/ board which is a textboard that allows for file-sharing.

Marked Dead 3-26-2024 – hosting issues. site will likely still exist but not as an image board.

AiChan – Dead

This one is a little different so I’m making a post on it. It is more of a proof of concept, testing kind of site. AiChan is running off wordpress instead of typical image board software. With some modification using only off the shelf plugins, it has been setup with front end anonymous posting and anon commenting. I would say some of the benefits to using wordpress is that:
1. Easy to install for noobs
2. Can easily force post moderation before posts go live to prevent spam.
3. Email notification of a new post/comment to help with moderation
4. Lots of options for optimization – easy to use a CDN for images

AiChan is running on a $10/mo VPS.
The following plugins are needed:
– Elementor Pro for the posts block with pagination. (There are tons of alternatives with posts blocks and pagination – most are not free)
– USP Pro – this is a paid plugin but allows the front end posting form. The free version will allow for 1 form, but multiple boards requires Pro
– Akismet – filters comment spam
– DCO Comment Attachment – allows images to be added in post comments
Optional:
– Display Featured Image In Post List – helps with moderation – allows you to see image when approving posts in the wordpress backend.
– Autoremove Attachments – when a post is deleted, it will clean up the images from the media library.
– Advanced Comment Form – lets you remove some of the irrelevant text on the comment form
– WPMail SMTP – allows email notification of new posts/comments
– EWWW Image Optimizer – creates webp versions of pictures and hosts them on a CDN
– Astra Theme works well to pick a template/starting point

Site removed 2-11-24 – up for 2 months and only 1 non-spam post.. nice…

Dead Board Removals

Someone did my job for me and submitted a bunch of dead board resports. I knew about some of them but usually let them linger for a bit in case they come back. Anyway.. these are gone:

WAPCHAN – 404 – this one is back.
Sidson.city – cloudflare time out
83channal – forwards to aggressive spam
Epitto – ssl error and switching to http does the same aggressive spam forwarding as 83channel
Finalchan – connection timeout
Christ-chan – connection timeout
Red Channel – Illegal content, site removed

Kind.moe – loads to a blank white page
