Captchas didn't work. Sticking to janitors while we try to think of something else.

So, yeah. It has come to this. Sorry everyone.

Even after adding multiple new janitors, getting one or more CP spam posts per day was just, still too much. It limits who will even be willing to visit my imageboards in a possibly traumatic way, and having it appear so often puts me at legal risk.

Even being desensitized from dealing with this so long, some of the more recent images were especially disturbing to me. I'd rather force my users to fill out a captcha than force my users and janitors to look at this shit all the time. I got it working and it's gonna be here to stay until I can think of something better.

I realize that Google's solution is not the best solution, but it's what ships with Vichan. At least one user reported that reCAPTCHA blocks their entire ISP, but they were able to get around that by enabling the uBlock Origin browser extension, strangely enough. If I can get the software updated there is an alternate provider, but there are issues with that such that it is going to end up being a major surgery I have to set aside some hours for.

I have the captcha set at the lowest difficulty setting for now. If you are having trouble posting regardless, you can report it to me at seisatsu@uboachan.net, though I can't guarantee I can do anything.

I'm sorry again that I had to do this, and I hope it doesn't significantly impact the experience for most people.

It's all good. It's an acceptable solution to something that has to be done right now. Regardless of who dev'ed the solution in the end.
I don't really know any other alternatives to this so I imagine if someone knows another solution they may post it here.

>some of the more recent images were especially disturbing to me

Yeah. I don't want this thread to talk too much about it, but I do think the rougher pics being pushed have sinister implication about that kind of market. I don't come here anymore, but I assume the same bots also wanders on the other chans I visit on the regular. I can only imagine the same stuff is being thrown around here.



Ah. I meant to change it to "not as often". It sounds like i abandoned this chan otherwise lol.

Also it seems to bug out as i'm writing this. It was already checked on reload after posting my last reply. now the checkbox is ticked off and outlined in red. Unable to re-check it. Had to reload the page.

My bad for doublepost! Worth in the end.

Well, at least is something

if it stops the spam, i'm more than okay with this. Those images were rough to try to avoid when regularly browsing


This has been happening for years now on other imageboards and even textboards. People have noticed the same images and links are spammed on the same sites usually on the same day. I've heard from janny on another site that they think the spam isn't automated but is being posted manually in many instances from IPs in 3rd world countries. Makes you wonder who and why?

Like I mentioned in the other thread, I sincerely think it's an organization that despises chan culture for some reason. I won't speculate on the motives here as this isn't a politics board. But it really really sucks and we need to do everything we can to keep our culture alive.


oh my god thank you so fucking much


Better than nothing, thank god

Not an anime captcha with Yume Nikki characters I've been suggestion earlier, but it's definitely better than having no captcha at all. As long as it will stop the spam and make the spammer's lives harder.


I think you need to make the captcha stronger the cp bots are still getting in

Never fucking mind lol.

Holy shit they might not be bots after all


How depressing.

I'd rather have buttman instead of this shit, at least he could be somewhat funny at times. This shit is flat out disgusting.


lmao this is immediately dated


Wellll lol


yep they just keep striking

We are never going to be free of the nonce bots


Sei there's a thread on lainchain about this exact problem right now. A few webmasters and mods are talking about it there, maybe get in touch and try to find a solution together? One suggestion was a custom captcha to prevent bots that know how to get past google's and other common captchas.
I don't remember the altchan, but I've seen a touhou captcha before, Maybe we could make a Yumme Nikki themed one?


I love how I forgot the link, soz for the 2nd post so soon.


Aged like fine wine for sure…

Feel free to call me cynical but I doubt anything great will come out of that unless somebody picks it up for real and starts working on some sort of an accountable public system.

Cheap US / EU proxies and VPNs that bypass many traditional detection methods are common even amongst the stupidiest of spammers.


>I doubt anything great will come out of that unless somebody picks it up for real and starts working on some sort of an accountable public system.
I imagine it would be pretty hard since we are talking about dealing with illegal content.
But, 77346 over on the thread on Lainchan has a solution worth trying if Sei has a GPU to spare to try it out.

Well, he seems to have made a comeback. Dear butt man, if you are still here, do you play any vidyas? Might be fun to network outside of this parasocial relationship we have going over here.


buttman is just a knockoff barneyfag.


okay I feel a bit like a newfag here as I’ve never heard of this. who or what was barneyfag. that sounds incredible.



you are cynical
