Dear tech team,
Can you guys make it possible to attach .mobi files?


Can .webm’s finally be uploaded on the site?

Last time I tried that it didn’t work, so I had to convert it to a .png instead.


Do you mean .webp?


NTA but probably.

Also IMO .webp is shit


OGG support when


Hey could we add .jxl support? It's supported by default on librewolf, and I think the only reason chrome is holding off on it is because it competes with .webp, but chrome still supports it via about:flags.

We could make some absurdly storage efficient memes with it, like sub-kilobyte file sizes, and even double digit byte sizes.


you're not going to get that kind of performance with general image compression usage. while neat the kind of features on display here scream "difficult to parse" and therefore "security/DoS risk". fun that inercia ran a jxl compo tho


I'm not sure it's a good idea to at the moment.
The reason we only added webp for thumbnails is because all the common-enough browsers and forks worked fine. Only issue was apparently one guy whose browser version did support it but his setup was broken. We didn't add support for uploading them, because they're still considered an annoying non-default format on many operating systems. Well, unless that's changed in the past year. I haven't kept up with formats/compatibility for a while so I'm open to counterpoints.
Until .jxl and av1 formats get more mainstream support, I don't think it's wise to allow either of them to be uploaded. Especially if Chrome doesn't support them (out of the box). The average griller user shouldn't be expected to dig into their most-common-in-the-world browser just to make images show up.

I don't see why not. I'll try and add this when I get home.

also for those who can't see the images there are converted version on demozoo: https://demozoo.org/parties/4406/#competition_17507




Heads up for codemonkey and admin vols
Matrix 2.0 go vroom


Let the music be free


Could we have some means of adding alt-text to images? Perhaps a tick next to the spoiler tick to preserve the description part of the metadata, and use that to give images alt-text?


Interesting This vid is filtered from the Deutsche thread why?

Even trying to link >>>/leftypol/1386982 in thread fails


I can tell you it has nothing to do with the german thread. No one cares about that thread, not even me.


When posts are merged into another thread the links still point to the previous one.

The RSS feed for the overboard seems to be broken, all the links point to /leftypol/, even if they're on other boards like /siberia/. So 404 since there's no threads on /leftypol/ with that number.

Works fine for board specific feeds tho, just the overboards are having this issue.


>the board supports RSS
how did I not know this? this is amazing




File: 1683536733614.png (7.46 KB, 128x128, Feed-icon.png)

to add to the RSS thing, there should be appropriate <meta> tags to allow RSS readers to automagically find the feeds. this is perhaps more an issue to bring up upstream. also an RSS icon somewhere would be nice, but again this also probably belongs upstream


finally, I see that the feeds list threads in the order they were created rather than bump order. it might be nice if there were feeds for the latter, so that threads with new posts are shown as new


Devs this guy was making a tool for hashing spam and comparing across sites or something. You should check it out:


random question, do we have enough ban evading that doing browser fingerprinting to try to catch them automatically would be valuable ?



an IP + browser fingerprint gets you someone's identity. I hope anons here are switching user agents and/or using VPN/TOR.


it would be easily evaded, plus privacy invasion like fingerprinting would decimate the remaining userbase.


Given chrome is starting to lose a lot of users over the Web Environmente integrity and Manifest 3 thing, I'm wondering how complex the process of adding .jxl would be. Like would it just be adding it to a list? The only Firefox I can think of that doesn't have the config rn is vanilla stable, which is huge, but many forks just enable it be default now, so things are looking good on that front.

Huh, guess we'll be fine then. Or does the site use both somehow?

cloudflare is for DDoS protection and redundancy. why they would choose a host with cloudflare is beyond me.


leftypol.org does use Cloudflare, check the HTTP headers returned
>server: cloudflare
>cf-cache-status: …
>report-to: …
also see https://developers.cloudflare.com/ssl/reference/certificate-authorities/#universal-ssl and https://developers.cloudflare.com/ssl/edge-certificates/universal-ssl/
>By default, Cloudflare issues — and renews — free, unshared, publicly trusted SSL certificates to all domains added to and activated on Cloudflare.
>Universal certificates issued by Let’s Encrypt or Google Trust Services have a 90 day validity period.
this means that Cloudflare is MITM-ing everything you do here, you should use the Onion Service which ofc doesn't use Cloudflare


>the Onion Service which ofc doesn't use Cloudflare
Was it removed at some point. I remember getting cloudflared on the onion during a /pol/ raid two years ago.


Say /tech/ dev team, would it possible for the site to be able to run flash? I know that browsers do not support it any more and its "outdated" and shit, but a lot of older materials are primarily .swf files which I can neither upload, nor open functionally on the site which is unfortunate given the myriad of old school content flash files may have.


I honestly loathe cloudflare because it makes the site slow as fuck, and makes using it on low wifi or in poor areas very hard, since it loads forever, then the captcha doesn't read. It's like 2010s 8chan post captcha all over again.

Not sure if this is a mod question or a /tech/ question so I'm reposting it in both
Say mods, why are so many of the image files and video files in >>>/leftypol_archive/ and dead or gone? Like they're not deleted by mods, they just no longer exist. There's so many .webms that are non functional it's not even funny and the number of threads missing all of the images in them is annoying as hell. It's Desuarchive's filedeaths all over again.

Just as an example https://leftypol.org/leftypol_archive/res/489758.html has all images dead. Why and how? Or the /edu/ checkpoint thread


has yt-dlp been replaced?
Why do I get "[download] Got error: HTTP Error 403: Forbidden. Retrying fragment 01 (1/10)…" all the time for youtube videos now?


This is for technical issues with leftypol.org, for your question try >>1280 or maybe >>18877. By the way, it works on my machine.


Sorry, thought I was in the QTDDTOT




isn't /sfw/ just supposed to filter spoilered threads? /siberia/ doesn't seem to be showing up at all on there.


/sfw/ lists all the safe-for-work boards, which afaik is all boards except /siberia/


archive.is is down for me with this nginx garbage replacing it in all browsers except Tor. Can someone give me an assist here?


Keep getting errors when I try to post only for the post to post just fine after refreshing the page, even though I opened te page like a minute before posting. I can't even tell what the objective problem is


I think I know what you're talking about. Sometimes it happens. Unfortunately, debugging that would be a pain in the ass and unlikely to produce anything of value. Are you using a VPN? If so, try clearing your cookies and switching IP.


So is there a reason why I can't embed certian youtube links? like for example I cant embed this


But I can embed this one


But they both go and go to the same video, this first one I coped off of YouTube's share feature and the second one I just directly copied from the browser.

I can't answer this but the ?si=U42ECuZj_eus4Z82 part is used for tracking, you should always remove it. Ideally the software still should accept it, idk why it won't.


Vichan uses a regex string for processing it, in a rush right now so can't find it in the repo for you, but it will only accept a certain list of YouTube URL formats. It's shitware, through and through.


Can you stop banning Tor users because of some chinlet derailing the thread? Holy macaronie.
