Happy Holidays!
Uboachan Dream World MUD is back up. The issue stems from DennisMUD not being able to update its SSL cert without being restarted manually. A fix will be investigated, see GitHub Issue #115.

Could a mod please remove the hardcore CP posted on NSFW, and make sure it doesn't happen again? thanks

Hey, even I have to sleep sometime >_>


the bots come every other day and there is no real way to stop it. If there is a spam post it's banned/deleted as soon as someone sees it, but until then, it stays.

There's about 4-5 members of staff checking the boards, and deleting things to the best of our ability. I wish it was possible to blanket filter this somehow, but that's gonna stay in my dreams.

A pure mod doesnt need to sleep and its always happy to serve us uboafats.

It's 80% of what I do when modding, is remove the irritating porn spam bots. I'm pretty certain that tinyboard/vichan supports captchas, but it's something that'd drive you guys nuts to have to deal with. It's sort of the tradeoff. If more people are okay with captchas to get rid of the bots, we can enable it.


We get CP spam pretty frequently now. The software has anti-spam countermeasures but since Tinyboard and its offshoots are fairly popular software now those countermeasures have probably been figured out and coded around by whatever douchenozzle writes all the imageboard spambots.


Captcha isn't bad choice, how can some people hate using their brain 2 seconds? What's the difference? This imageboard is for adults anyway.

It essentially decreases a person's efficiency in terms of shitposting. It's really bad.


Ubuu is slow, I'm sure the shitposting/content ratio won't suffer too much because of captcha.


aa, I'm usually pretty good with catching those, but I never go on the nsfw board…
captcha sounds good to me


I'm really not too fond of captcha and such, I often get it wrong and then have to start over…


If that's the price for stopping the CP flood.. captcha now, please. People like >>1989 will simply have to deal.

new free


nice b8 m8 i logged in just for you


The same spam was on 4chan and they have captcha.


I'm not sure it's worth a captcha, honestly. The spam is really slow. 4chan only added a captcha after the great spam flood that completely filled every board, including /b/. (And that was an intentional attack.)

I'd rather not enable captchas but I'm not terribly against it if it's what everyone wants.


Honestly, this place is already so slow, captcha would just make it slower, it seems like an overkill solution, although if there aren't any better solutions…


I don't think a solution is needed. We can just delete CP when we find it.

I just deleted another flood, and actually, at the rate this is going, I might have to kinda seriously leave. I just kinda made the connection that every time I delete the spam, I'm uh, technically getting CP on my computer history. I always wipe my history afterwards, but I dunno. I'm going to college to become an elementary school teacher, this site might be becoming a liability for me. I'm not asking you to implement captcha for my sake, but it definitely would make things less risky


You can report any cp to the feds if you want.
Then if they look at your computer history, they'll see that you saw it and immediately reported it. I report it every once and a while just in case >_>

I'm pretty sure Booger doesn't want to be involved either, she's here to moderate not to be a paladin of justice in the middle of a CP investigation.
If anything, it would be Admin's job, or just put the captcha thing on and /thread

Nice trips btw -1 because no Cirno.


Alright, I'm convinced. It looks like this could be a legitimate problem for a lot of people. I'll work on enabling the captcha.

we are safe now

Oh good, impossible to type characters and random people's house numbers! Joy!


shit, not Google's reCAPTCHA
is there no other captcha option? I don't like contributing to google's surveillance botnet

To my knowledge, it's just this one. There's always suggesting alternatives to be integrated into vichan.

To those who are frustrated by this change, here's a little insight from a staff member:

More than half of the bans issued on this site are to illegal content posted by spambots. The IPs are so varied that we can't reasonably blanket ban (which has proven to be flaky at best in the past) without catching users in the middle of it.

If there's illegal content on the site and no moderators are around to remove it, it could stay on the site too long. If it were to get reported to authorities or the server's host, it could potentially have the site taken down.

As it is, the captchas are five digits at most and somewhat blurry. I've sat here and refreshed the captcha dozens of times and they're all numbers, all simple. One number of a few batches were unreadable. One was literally a giant three.

I understand it can be frustrating, but we're not given many other choices. We have a thread over here >>2002 for feedback and if you have any alternative methods we could employ, we're all ears.


They're still getting through. Time for plan B. Captchas will be dropped.


The Bots know how to get past Google's captcha?

oh fuck

I am the button of my report,
HTML is my <body>, and Javascript is my blood
I have reported over a thousand CP/spam
Unknown to tripfags, nor known to IRCs
Have withstood hard candy to report many posts
Yet, those hands will never hold a loli
So as I pray, Unlimited Report Works
