Upgraded to LynxChan (Finally!) Anonymous Board owner 05/03/2018 (Thu) 20:35:19 No. 2233 [Reply]
The imageboard's server has been upgraded to LynxChan. This means a variety of things, including more support, more security, more stability, more security, and higher performance, among other things. For a more a extensive list, see http://lynxhub.com.

I do intend to finish up the CSS (theme, look/feel of the site). Right now it's a little choppy but it will only improve with time. If there's a particular feature that you miss or a thing you see broken that you wonder if can be fixed, just let me know.

If you're wondering why this upgrade was needed, vichan (the software we were using previously) is abandoned, and has been abandoned for some time now. It also has its share of bugs, technical problems, etc. While it was stable and provided a good base, in time we would be in a bad spot, as vichan is currently broken on PHP 7.2 (and possibly 7.1, I haven't tested). I figured it would be better to upgrade ahead of time. Ultimately, Warpath and kingADVRC decided to move to this software. All images should be in their appropriate places, and no content should be missing from the vichan installation. I hope that this software well preserves the many years of content and history that this website has stored.

Best regards,
fapchan administration.

Having issues posting images for the past few nights.

Also, what's the chances of us upgrading to the latest version of Lynxchan?
Also overboard seems to be broken. I'll check board settings just to be sure.

Fapchan App Instructions deysu Board owner 05/06/2018 (Sun) 00:26:26 No. 2248 [Reply]
A little convoluted but you only have to go through the ordeal once:

So here's how you can get a pretty decent app that'll work with Fapchan. It's Android only, sadly. But maybe we'll have better mobile support in the future.

The first thing you need to do is enable the installation of unsigned APKs. Google forces this on you because they don't want you to run applications from outside of their play store. In the case of Apple, they don't even give you the option to run unsigned software, and completely lock you into their ecosystem. This guide will show you how to enable the installation of unsigned APKs (Android Applications) https://yourbusiness.azcentral.com/install-unsigned-android-app-9807.html

After doing that, follow these instructions to learn how to install the app.

1) Install Dashchan ( https://github.com/Mishiranu/Dashchan-Extensions/raw/master/update/package/Dashchan.apk )
2) Install the Endchan extension (https://github.com/Mishiranu/Dashchan-Extensions/raw/master/update/package/DashchanEndchan.apk ) We do this because Endchan also uses LynxChan, so if we change the domain name in the settings we can use Fapchan or any other LynxChan based imageboard we want. Very useful.
3) Open Preferences
4) Open Forum
5) Set a default starting board, doesn't matter what it is.
6) Scroll down and set the domain name as fapchan.org.
7) Close the application and restart it.
8) After restarting the application, open preferences again.
9) Untick "Use catalog"

Gathering feedback for 2.3 Stephen Lynx 05/25/2019 (Sat) 13:25:35 No. 2272 [Reply]
Recently kohlchan decided to migrate to lynxchan and along it there was a series of features implemented on an addon for them. I'm looking for feedback from long time admins and mods regarding the integration of certain features from this addon into the core engine. You can contact me ither through e-mail, irc, or as last resort through my site.
Oh my god, that site is absolutely amazing. I would want whatever they have in the core site. I cannot express how amazing kohlchan looks. Perhaps the best LynxChan instance out there.

I have developed a new chan engine a while ago and I would like to ask if you have any interest in using it for your chan.

It offers features such as:
File deduplication
Multi-lingual support
User owned boards
Json api
Modular front-end
Addon support

Not only that, but it performs better than any other engine and is fully documented.

You can see a list of sites running it over here:
Really cool features, I'd only like to have an style similar to Futaba one. Currently I use TinyIB with few modifications: http://simplechan.ml/
bump :^)

Traffic/overall activity? Anonymous 11/03/2016 (Thu) 00:42:29 No. 2155 [Reply]
To the devs,
How much traffic have you seen across all the site over the past year or so? Which boards are most active/dead?

I feel like this website has been pretty dead for a while now which is sad because I used to be able to find a lot of content here.
(28.73 KB 480x640 best costume ever.jpg)
It appears mostly dead now ever since the shitspam we got a while back that forced us to activate captcha for a while. It forced a lot of good content into oblivion on boards that used to be very populated and discouraged users to post because everyone hates captcha.

The only user-active boards left appear to be /babby/, /girly/, /h/, and /hypno/, but /gp/ and /s/ still see the common fapfile spam that keeps itself neatly contained in their respective stickies. The thought of repopulating these boards with what I have personally saved has crossed y mind. I suppose time restraints and laziness are to blame for it not already being done.

The current state of the boards saddens me as well. Perhaps this thread will invigorate some activity, or it will fall on dead eyes.

image not realated but funny as tits.
To revive this old thread I'd like to say that things are much the same. By far the most active board seems to be /girly/ nowadays, not sure about the other boards.

I'm glad in a way that the filesharing stickies are still active and populated. I don't think that person is a bot either, because he still posts even after we switched software twice.

I have hopes to revive the site by doing the following:

1) Make mobileposting a priority
I've already figured out a way to get Dashchan working with the site. Though the setup process can be a lot easier, and that's something I'll look into.

2) Posting content regularly and contributing more to the website
There is a lot of content that I can contribute. Currently fapchan has 33 boards, and maybe we can consolidate a few of them. Up to kingADVRC if he wants to do that. We have stable thread moving now, though.

3) Looking into potential partnerships with other imageboards, advertising, and making the site look appealing.
As the site grows we can potentially establish partnerships with existing imageboards and help each others boards grow with advertising. I already looked into a partnership with an imageboard viewing application, but sadly that partnership was turned down due to Fapchan's content. If you have a website and you want to partner up, contact me at deysu [at] mewch [d0t] ru and lets chat. Or just post in this thread.
