Build Back Better Robi Board owner 04/14/2024 (Sun) 11:33:40 No.1
Hey, it's been a while. I've been rather absent for, well, a couple years now, and I'm sorry for that. The short version is that I've had a lot of IRL shit to deal with and had to stay offline for a while. I've been quietly working on some changes for the past couple of months to clean up some old cruft and make Alogs, and the Webring as a whole a bit better to use. These changes haven't been rolled out yet, but include: 1. A new system to significantly reduce the risk of rogue janitors. This will allow us to open up janitor applications without having to worry about wasting time restoring the Alogs database. This will also allow us to promote well-behaved janitors to global moderation. Currently we have all timezones covered even with the limited moderation team we have, but it's much better to have redundancies. (This will be released a LynxChan addon and as Free Software so other LynxChan imageboard owners in the Webring can benefit from it.) 2. Potentially opening up board registration and claims again. I've recently been more financially and time-wise stable so combined with 1 we should be able to handle this. 3. Putting canary publishing on a monthly schedule, specifically the first Sunday of each month. I realized that the 3-month spacing between canaries make me forget about updating them (fucking hell, look at the last update date before the current one.) I've released this canary as a special one, but we'll have a regularly scheduled one afterwards. 4. Figuring out a better image storage solution, and also figuring out why our image database is massively inflated. With the amount of boards we have we shouldn't be storing 30+GB of data. I suspect a LynxChan bug, but I'm still looking into it. If we actually have that much legit data, I will work on getting more storage for us. 5. I've done some minor edits to the global rules: https://alogs.space/.static/pages/globalRules.html . It's only a few clarifications about what is and isn't allowed. The meta board is currently locked as I finish up the various outstanding issues I still have to deal with. Once we have better moderation I will open up discussion, I want to hear from you guys. If you have something to contact me about, you can let me know through the various channels: https://alogs.space/.static/pages/contact.html I recently cleaned up my inbox and should be able to respond to e-mails promptly now. Sorry for the e-mails that I've missed. Christ is Kang, Robi Pires
