I'll unsticky the other one. It's becoming a bit long and I kinda want to make a distinction that we have some new people now.
I think the /lit/ (and /dis/) char limit should ok now. I added some other features I saw asked, like a search, changed old links to point to .cx instead of .ch. I'll try to look into the Tor stuff, altho I'm not sure if we actually need a hidden service. (Feel free to argue why, though.)
Sorting seems kinda broken at the moment? On 3dcg, at least?
There's a few threads that were bumped yesterday above OP's thread which was bumped today
Well, the wordlimit is better now on /lit/ I had to cut my story in half and got triggered by flood protections trying to post the other half though. so… not perfect. but usable.
I'd also request the threads come back. And could you make the titles of the threads be in bigger font so it's easier to distinguish where one ends and the next begins?
Themes? It'd be great if this could be dark green, light green, same for blue, and then black or white, with the option for red letters.
So many other things that went through my mind, like archives and stories and mroe, bt most of all, I'm just so happy you're back <3
I have not been able to post on reddit for some strange reason, anyway I would like to Moderate for this site. My reddit name is CenobiteGuro, please send the invite/information there. Nice all my brothern >:)
Thinking about it some more, it might be just that the thread in question is too long to get bumped anymore?
I hope you can setup an onion site again eventually.
If you can't do that right now: Currently it's hard to make posts through Tor, you often get an error message that the IP is on rbl.efnet.org
I think that's probably a default blacklist in the forum software that includes most exit nodes for Tor. It would be great if you could get rid of that at least.
I tried to remove a reply to edit it a bit more, and now the post is at the top of /lit/, without the reply, but it's still in the thread itself
Could you make it so that posting won't boot you out of the thread?
Can you get rid of the spam that killed the last gurochan?
It stayed in the thread until I uploaded a new thing, then disappeared
Love "show last 50" posts replies. Makes things easier for me and the server in those 200+ image threads.
Giev inline/mouseover replies?
Im up on steam now and messaged StraitJacket or his friend, waiting for the interview:)
Trying to post in /lit/ I get "Table 'gc.report' doesn't exist"
The bump limit for a single thread seems to be the default one, and the old site gad it raised quite a bit - how about raising it here too?
Might be nice to get the old red hue of the original site. It's been that color since I started using Gurochan in 2007.
And if anyone has the logo saved for the landing page/sidebar.
This would be nice.
Having a list of topics at the top of categories again would be nice. It's hard to browse with so much between topic titles; And so few topics per page.
Update on posting in /lit/, I still get the error but things do post. Seems like there's a significant delay between posting something and having it actually show up.
Can't post anything bigger than 2 MB or so cause of the Error Code 1. Though I've seen on the other threads that people could post files up to 8 MB, so theoretically my file doesn't exceede the max file size. Any solutions?
How long before this gurochan looks like the other?
Im also on steam, I followed under the group as my name from reddit. Feel free to invite me as a friend.
>>8427>Though I've seen on the other threads that people could post files up to 8 MB, so theoretically my file doesn't exceede the max file size. >Any solutions?
The previous incarnation of gurochan had a way larger max file limit, so you'll just have to make do with smaller image sizes or wait until the current devs for this version of gurochan up the limit themselves.
Kancolle thread disappear?
women slaughtered like animals thread also deleted?
Its still in the catalogue.
no it's not?
You're right, its not.
Must've been lost during all the spamming attacks on the last version of gurochan.
Fire emblem thread also
Perhaps the spamming attacks is not relevant ?
I would say to get a tor backup too. Every time Gurochan would go down, We could remind people of the back up even though it was slower, it would provide stable access. It is worth investing in.
Pretty sure the default chan configuration automatically deletes old/too-long threads. A bunch of threads I remember seeing on here the first day it was up are no longer up.
will we be able to hide threads anytime soon?
For some reason my comments keep getting removed…
I've been using this wrong, forgive me this set up is still strange…
Just wanted to ask, but does the site still scrub your IP address from posts you've made after three days like the previous version of Gurochan? And could you guys bring back the FAQ? Might help new posters not make mistakes.
Could we get any admin reply at all to the stuff that had been asked recently? I'm a bit worried about the radio silence that's been going on pretty much since the day after the site went up :/
Hey, I'm one of the moderators here.
I'll let everyone know what you've been saying here. More than one person wants to know "When it will look like the old gurochan." I'm doing some simple work myself right now to make the site a bit prettier. I'll try and match that old pink look as I work.
I'm talking to the devs also about getting the thread table to return to the top of boards, the organized list of recent threads that used to dawn every board on gurochan. From speaking to them, it seems like it won't be very difficult but the other devs are busy people so they need to find some time to take care of it.
There are other things that were stated in this thread I don't understand to well, I'll point the devs at this thread and mention that people are having problems with file size limits, spam protections on lit threads, and are curious about IP safety.
Thanks for guroing. If you want something you better ask, cause we're listening.
Thanks for the reply
is the catalog updating very slowly or not updating? i made a new thread in 3dcg but it doesn't show up. the thread exists at https://www.gurochan.cx/3dcg/res/26020.html
it's just no in the catalog. maybe i have to wait more than about 10 minutes?
Many posts seem to take a while before they are visible from outside the thread. The last post i made immediately showed up in the thread but took about an hour to be visible anywhere else. That's probably the reason why there are so many double posts.
Can you remove the age limit on literature threads? They shouldn't be taking up much space, and we've lost too many good stories that way.
The character limit in /rp/ should be larger. Some people (like myself) do occasionally make pretty long posts; especially in "kill the above" threads.
Apparently the markup for text formatting is at least partially different from how it used to be. Can we either get the most recent one from the old gurochan back, or a primer on how it works now? (On that note, if possible the FAQ on the front page should return, and hold precisely that info among others.) Also please do remove the age/post limit in /lit/, my huge writing thread isn't bumping anymore, but I'd quite like to keep it.
Also deleting of posts seems to be seriously delayed or strange. A bit ago I posted a story in my thread only for the formatting to be messed up, but me deleting it only came through a few minutes later - after I'd written a comment to it, and now that comment can't seem to be deleted.
Update, looks like deletion does straight-up *not* work, until you make another comment, at which point whatever you previously set to delete will disappear. (And it was like 8 hours inbetween, with me restarting the PC in the meantime, so I highly doubt it was just on my end)
Welcome back Gurochan.
Since nobody asked this yet. Is this gurochan official or just a board somebody made to replace it since .ch is down?
HEY HUGE ISSUE, THREADS ARE STILL AUTOMATICALLY BEING DELETED.
If it's a space issue that's understandable, but it can be very frustrating and it seems like we will loose a lot of content this way.
If possible it would be nice if we could then (after this is fixed) restore some of the content that has since been age deleted.
Yes, it's "official" as it gets, under new management, and hopefully up for the long run.>>8507
Do you know what threads were deleted? Would help so this can be fixed, thanks.
new management? what about enclaved and ryona? they good?
Well, after browsing through /g/ catalog. I noticed old and long standing thread such as "Western Comic Guro" is gone.
Plus, in it's place there are at least two dozens blank threads with Chinese fonts on it. Are those a temp placeholder?
This post worked when it was originally posted, now it doesn't.>>61964
I am pretty sure that this chan has the default settings enabled vis-a-vis auto saging threads (e.g. preventing bumping) and deleting them.
Same here - trying to post to 'Lit' is getting 'gc.report' does not exist.
Any word on what's up with that?
The thread is still posted. I saw that too when I posted my story, it's up about 8 hours later.
They're just too busy to be able to take care of it anymore.
The "gc.report" problem should be fixed now. It was some hidden database triggers from the old stuff.
There's still some caching issues causing posts not showing up sometimes, but we're looking into that.
I don't think the threads themselves are deleted, just that they were hidden. But either way, the bump limit and page limit have been effectively removed.
When you open a thread, instead of the thread name showing up on the tab name, it's the contents of the first post that show up - might want to change it back to thread names?
Also, while all the threads from the catalog can be accessed now (lit has 92 pages now O.o) I don't think the threads that have been deleted are back? Can't find the Fire Emblem one, at least
Is it possible for someone to make gurochan.ch redirect to .cx so people who didn't know the site moved can return? I didn't know the site was back for a very long time.
It would be great if it would be possible to post with Tor without having to change identities countless times until I find one that is not blocked by the blacklist.
Agree on the Tor problem, it's getting ridiculous. I had to change my exit node more than 20 times to find one that wasn't blacklisted. I know some artists are only posting through Tor, if that isn't possible this is a huge issue.
Thread that disappears when migrating to the new site
Fire Emblem Guro
girls and women in eternal slumber (old)
Combat Gore (old)
Again about the Tor problems: I think all you need to do in the forum software is find the line with rbl.efnet.org in it and get rid of it, that should enable posting from all Tor exit nodes again.
Ideally yea, but part of the old site going down was they let the domain expire and some squatters snatched it. Trying to get it back if possible.
The Tor ban should be lifted now. We'll see what happens.
Old threads on scat section are still missing. I can't find the one about MuMu Factory game.
Creating new thread at /g/Western Comics. But only managed to post 4 uploads until I hit the bump. It said "Flood Detected. Post Deleted".
So, apparently we can't freely uploading pictures as much as heart content like the old days anymore. Is that true?
Spam protection, I guess. gurochan.ch had a serious problem with spam during its last few months.
Admin, I have a question.
Is there any way to edit a thread? Just want to add one or two more sentences in the post.
Threads disappearing is concerning to me, especially ones that were actively being posted in like the livestock one. I like to archive topics when they're at the bottom of the bump order yet I thought those would be safe since the last topic's last post was in 2017 and these were still posted in 2018. What exactly is the purge time and what is the post limit before autosage?
The explosives thread seems to have also disappeared
Could we get a guide on how text formatting works?
I'm noticing that threads don't seem to be bumping when I post anymore. It used to be that when I posted something in my artwork thread it would be placed at the top of page 1 under the fantastic pinned Pixiv keywords thread. Now it leaves the thread at the same position on page 3, which probably means that newly posted material isn't being bumped?.
Hmmm I see that, it says you last posted on Dec 17, which obviously isn't the case at all. Hopefully this can be fixed as soon as possible, thanks.
Glad to see the site is back.
Yea I think there is some missing content.
I know it's a big ask, but if at some point one of the admins is bored it would be awesome if they could go back and restore some of the lost threads by hand from the backup/image they used to remake this site in the first place. I suspect they may have been deleted automatically by the auto sager, but it should be possible to restore them.
It's nice to see a new gurochan! Is this site going to be more reliable? Is it still in the process of being fine-tuned?
It doesn't seem like /lit/ and /dis/ are quite setup properly, because they still seem to expect to be image boards. Is there some way to get a concise list of thread subjects without having to scroll through the content of every post?
I see the catalog view which is a step in the right direction, but it's still obviously focused on the images, which doesn't make sense since it's almost always "File Deleted". It just feels like browsing the text boards is strangely awkward.
Am I missing some feature of this new site, or is this a feature that is planned for the future? Or is this just nit picking? Should we expect little issues like this to be ironed out soon, or should we just be grateful to have a working site?
After an accidental post, I've noticed that If I create a new thread, it gets bumped to the top… so it seems to just be my artwork thread that this is happening to? Is it possible to get all the information in my current thread copy pasted by admins into a new one? I could probably make a fresh thread… but it'll take forever to reupload all the material, and I'd love to keep all the old replies, and not bump unnessecarily. As it stands, its not good if my thread isn't making it to page one when I add a new artwork to it.
I just tried to post a story in Literature
Ultra Short stories (100 words or less)
That subforum doesn't really work for several reasons:
1. The thread wasn't bumped despite the new post and is still only accessible through the "catalog"
2. If you click on it, it defaults to the "Last 50 posts" view
3. Instead of the last 50 posts, it displays the first 50 posts, so the latest post isn't displayed.
(when I posted, it had exactly 50 post. my new post didn't show up, i ended up posting 3 times)
this isn't really useable with large threads like that.
Also, could we please have the catalog in list form displayed at the top like old gurochan had? Thanks :-)
Now I can't even post in my own thread. /g/western comics.
It always return to error page "Your Post look automated. It will be deleted".
Just tried to do an entirely manual image dump in the /f/Dickless mk4 thread. I've got all of about 2mbit bandwidth upstream and I've typed some short descriptions to go with each pic. But now I'm running into "this looks automated, post discarded errors" when I try to add any further images or even text comments to the thread, about 3-4 files short of the set.
Sounds like the detector is rigged up a little too sensitive, could the mods have a poke around its internals and slacken it off a bit? Assuming I can even post *this*, of course…
* "Your request looks automated: post discarded" errors
And yeah, it's still happening now even though i've left that board and have made a couple of posts here. How long is my IP going to be locked before I can finish my dump?
The third thread of SFM animations by OP has disappeared. As I'm pretty sure other threads did.
Wouldn't it be possible to remove bump limit?
Older bigger threads are not bumping and that is not good. especially in the 3d and artwork boards because nobody will see updates.
Trying to post a picture in my own art thread today gets me the "your post looks automated" message. Yesterday, I posted two pictures of a 19-picture set, and on the third, I got flood detected.
We could stand to ease up on the spam and bot protections, I think.
Hey people, :) I went on reddit and a few higher ups saw my message about all the stuff you all are going through. They seem to be doing something about it based on the replies. Please feel free to slip on over to reddit (on that comment) and tell any problems you all have been facing along with making sure people know gurochan is up and running (want to make sure everyone knows). Also be sure to upvote the post so more people see it. Be wonderful brothern.
I think you should also put some kind of disclaimer on the front page, something like "This site is full of birds carrying cans in their claws and therefore can not be seen by people suffering from cholesterolemia". Jokes aside, I know that the name Gurochan should be enough to incute fear and awe into most people, but don't let some asshole to play innocent with us!
Or at the very least an FAQ and rules page that explain how gurochan works.
I'm not familiar with the fine minutiae of reddit. Could you please give us a URL?
Also never mind thread disappearing, I could swear I've seen at least one thread which had more recent images added to it but has now been cropped back to just two… there might be a good reason behind it but it seems suspicious.
(/fur/ penectomy & castration fwiw)
I think we need a search function here - especially to help find old threads
dude there is a search box above the first thread on each board, probably the only improvement (other than stability) this gc has over the old one
Anyway it's also possible to use google to search a single board eg "site:https://www.gurochan.cx/3dcg/
Sorry for the late response, we are registered under "Guro". That is the singular thread. Once you go there you should see on the riht hand corner some old Gurochan web adresses or new ones. You should also see pinned to the top, a discussion thread. Pop on over there and express how you really feel. >:)
Quite a number of artists who use this board to upload original work complain that their threads are not bumping.
Can you remove the bump limit please? Especially in sections with lots of original work being posted such as
we have ongoing works/threads/series that are being pushed back despite being worked on.
I think we should keep the bump limit on /g/, simply because having a single thread with 1000+ images/replies will take forever to load, and would just keep the site static.
maybe - but definitely increase it on /art because I know that not being able to update my original thread is annoying me greatly.
somewhat worrying load time for the mainpage just now, and other pages seem sticky… how's your bandwidth and anti-DDoS protection doing?
It is no longer a problem because you can just load last 50 posts.
I love this new platform is fast and oldskol! But some threads were lost, 4 example the old Necksnap thread from Gore&Death and a few others i can't rem right now, are they lost forever? Can you try 2 restore them pls? And some discussion threads seem 2 be missing!
Please remove the huge chunk of spam posts from /lit/. It's massively inflated the size of the board/catalog and frankly it's just irritating.
There's still a massive chunk of left over spam on /g/ too.
There is more spam on /lit/ than there is content on /g/.
