So, upon further investigation, it turns out that the spam bots are using countermeasures to thwart the less intensive anti-spam measures we could use. Unfortunately this means that there is no easy solution. Currently I can see three possible remedies.

1) Use captchas. (Once-a-day captchas are a feature that is specific to 8chan and I don't know if we can implement them.)

2) Use an automated spam-detection service like Akismet. The con here is that we'd have to share every post's content with Akismet's servers in order to check it for spam, including the user's IP address.

3) Hire a ridiculous number of Janitors and try to manage them all.

Word/phrase filters are impossible because the bots are too smart. Any comments or alternative suggestions are welcome.

Yeah the spam still happens several times a week, up to once a day. But, it hasn't been a problem since Jove made the IRC bot. Every time someone makes a post on the boards, the bot gives us a summary right away in the moderation channel. The spam posts are pretty obvious, and we have someone watching just about all the time, so we usually catch and stop new waves in their tracks in a couple minutes or less nowadays before anyone is likely to see them. For the most part it's put the issue to rest, though it would be great if the spambot would go away for good.

As a simpler solution to an IRC bot (I spoke to you on IRC about spamming like a week ago), I enabled the RSS theme on my board and installed an RSS client on my PC to show new posts.

Word filters are pretty useless since the bots adjust. Good thing is that they always post a generic message, so I can tell when a post is probably a spambot, click the rss popup and immediately D+B.

Yes using the name field and trip codes, features clearly provided by any given imageboard, thus intended for use, as well people posting original content, is definitely not what imageboards are about.

They probably just wants to be recognized for their work an opinions because she knows people here want more of them. Cosplaying is exactly what people like for instance, Booger or Morgan, come here to do, because it's the only place Yume Nikki cosplayers can successfully congregate. So what if they want the attention they get for it in the one place they can get recognized for their work?

You're probably just jealous and honestly they're just seeking attention for their art, you're just seeking attention for the sake of it. If you don't like it lurk on another part of the site.

Cosplaying is a thing and people enjoy it, walk into any anime con and see.

As stated above, /h/ will be completely annihilated. I will also be cleaning out some hidden boards you've never heard of that existed at various times for long-past purposes, because having less boards speeds up some functions of the software and makes the moderation interface way less messy for the staff. Don't worry, most of the for-fun hidden boards will stay where they are.

A full site backup was made yesterday, so if anyone wants a copy of something after I've deleted it they can email me. The board restructuring will begin in just a few hours now. If you have any game-changing suggestions make them quick.

I said in the news post that we're going to be merging and restructuring boards, and that we'd be getting user input during this process.

Here is a first draft plan for the new board list. Please read and comment. (We will also have a process for moving threads from annexed boards to the relevant new boards.)

First Category:
/yn/ - yn general
/c/ - characters
/fg/ - fangames
/cos/ - cosplay/conventions
/yume/ - dreams

Second Category:
/o/ - oekaki/art
/co/ - comics/cartoons
/lit/ - lit

That could work.

 No.2720

Merging all the characters’ boards to /c/ might be for the best. I never understood why those characters had each their own board, it was probably just a matter of time till they had to be merged. Though I like /2kki/ and /flow/, merging them with /fg/ might be for the better also. Don’t know how that will go. /2/ and /comp/ were cool, sad to see them go. Won’t miss /h/, it was only good for laughs and cringes. Sadly /t/ had lost its path a long time ago. /n/ was a literal neoplasm to uboachan these past years, varying a lot between malignant and benign, and it had the annoying habit of having a ton of threads more fitting in other boards posted there under the pretext that op being a neet made them belong in /n/, and so aiding to the more fitting boards’ slow deaths. It was like ubo’s own neet cage. Maybe changing it into the new /hikki/ might turn it into something better. /uboa/ doesn’t appear on that list, I assume it will merge with /c/ too. Will /2/’s content now be posted in /co/?

Overall, I think I agree with these changes. Touching /2kki/, /flow/, /2/, and /comp/ leave me a bit restless, but ubo does need some change so I won’t mind as much sacrificing these boards for the good of the site.

>>2699
>For example, it may be possible to merge /co/, /lit/, and /media/ into one board called something like /entertainment/ or /media/. Maybe original stories could become part of /o/.
I’m not sure if that would be a good idea. It would probably create such a huge mess of different unrelated content.

 No.2799

>>2720
We're mostly already in agreement here, though merging /2/ and /co/ instead of letting /2/ just die is actually a great idea and might reinvigorate the board by combining these concepts.

 No.2800

>>2799
Other than in comparison and contrast, do fans of Western animation/comics and Eastern animation/comics mix? Maybe an artist would say so, but how often do you hear of the two being blended other than "Let's force an anime style into this show because it's trendy" or "Yeah I liked that cartoon but they did it better in this anime".

 No.2802

>>2800
Neither of the boards have much activity on their own, so it could be worth a shot. But I'm about to make the second draft thread, so we can continue discussion there.

Happy belated New Year Uboachan! And also, happy belated Birthday!

It may not look like much yet, but the staff have been busy devising new ways to make Uboachan great again this year. This has included subtle changes to the board rules, and reenvisioning of the policies by which the moderation staff operate. And behind the scenes, we've been working on bugfixes and new software to help us battle the rising tides of CP spam. Some shitty pedo won't be the death of us, and neither will negativity or bad vibes. We're stepping up our game in the background to clean this place up.

First off, the wordings of the rules have been altered to reflect a major change in the goals of the moderation staff. We're going to be tougher on shitposting this year. Let this be a warning: destructive posters and poisonous sentiments will be leeched from Uboachan like venom from a wound. If you are a total dickwad, you will first be warned generously to clean up your act, and then you will be banned. Let's all take this opportunity to be awesome and helpful people – the kind of people who build up a community rather than tearing it down. We could use some community-building right about now.

The CP spam remains a problem this year, but we've got people working behind the scenes to make the spammer's job harder. Every new countermeasure we develop incites an almost immediate change in the way the bot operates to nullify that countermeasure. We are being watched, so we're going to watch right back. Please welcome Jove, our new Janitor and Countermeasures Developer, who has been writing us software to help the board and the staff do their jobs more quickly and efficiently. Among these new developments is a bot that notifies the staff of new posts and suspected floods. We'll also be hiring additional Janitors to help us out! If you'd like to help us keep Uboachan clean of spam, shoot me an email at seisatsu@uboachan.net and tell me why you would be a valuable addition to the team.

And last on the docket, we've got way too many boards! It's not my fault, I didn't do it, it was like this when I got here. :(

We're finally going to be working on merging and restructuring boards. Don't worry, the staff will be accepting requests to move threads from retired boards to their new and consolidated replacements so that good content isn't buried and lost. And of course, we will be relying on input from the userbase during this process to ensure that ePost too long. Click here to view the full text.
