I've noticed that IRC has been pretty dead as of late, while the activity on the boards has remained fairly constant. I feel like this is due to IRC quickly becoming a niche thing. My other imageboard Uboachan switched to Discord some years back and the chat has been explosively active ever since. So, I am wondering if anyone still prefers IRC, or if we ought to try moving to Discord and see how that works out. Thoughts?

Rizon would probably be the best bet, and they have several useful services including their own bouncer anyone can sign up for.


Any service that requires a phone number gets a hard no from me.


Haven't used Rizon for around 5 years or so now. Quality among a lot of channels had dropped before I left but it would definitely be a better entry point for those interested in trying out IRC who hasn't before. Their bouncer and cloaks are extremely easy to obtain and configure.

Same here. I don't even own a phone to give a number to these platforms even if I were to be willing to do so. Most won't even accept a temp number from various websites either. Discord's UI is attrocious in my opinion as well. I do like the matrix/element idea. While I haven't personally used it myself, it seems to be a better alternative to Discord.


I would warn, Rizon requires a working email in order to register your nick. I tried with 10minutemail but never received anything and gave up after 2 tries.

Plus there's a lot of un-comfy IBs that use rizon for their irc channel, which means you'd have to put up barriers to entry or else have lots of Ops monitoring the chat to put down raids.


>or else have lots of Ops monitoring the chat to put down raids
I've used Rizon frequently since ~2008 and have maybe seen one raid, and that was 10+ years ago. Raids are very uncommon, and if the channel is set to not appear in /whois will be even rarer.

Wasn't aware about needing a "proper" email to register, though. That's unfortunate for those who want privacy in that regard.

We need to get Sushichan into the spirit.

Hello Sushis,

We suffered a raid directed from another imageboard on 10/04/2021. It looks like many smaller imageboards were attacked, and the stated goal of the attack was to wipe out older imageboard culture. To this end, the attackers tried to make as many spam threads as possible in order to push legitimate content off of the last page, deleting it. The raid used bots and dozens of IP addresses in order to bypass our flood filters.

Thankfully, a board user joined the new Discord server and alerted us within less than an hour of the raid starting, and I was able to lock down the boards while the moderators removed the spam posts. However, it looks like the attack partially succeeded, because on our less active boards we still have posts going back to the start of the site reboot in 2016, but on the more active boards that were already full, such as /lounge/, we have many less pages and only a couple years worth of threads. Our threads were bumped around too, so a few older threads are now near the top of their boards.

This incident also showed me that my backup system had not been working correctly. It was reporting that the backups were being uploaded each week, but in fact I didn't have anything newer than May. I cancelled the managed backup service I had been paying for, and switched to a custom solution, which I finished implementing today before re-enabling posting on the boards.

It is likely that I could restore most of our older content using the May backups, but this will require splicing the boards using some custom code so that we don't lose any current content. I will look into doing this when I have time/energy. Alternatively I am considering just putting a snapshot of the site from May on a subdomain for people to view the old threads that were lost, and I will probably end up doing this first.

I have got captchas working correctly (as far as I can tell), so they will stay enabled for the time being. Please report any issues on the IRC or Discord chats, accessible from the "chat" link in the navigation menu. These chats are linked together, so it doesn't matter which one you use.

Warm Regards,

Thanks for the hard work!


>the new Discord server
>my backup system had not been working

The attackers didn't have to do anything to kill older imageboard culture. Job's already done.


I'd like to know too, did they have anything about their actual motivation sei/whoever?

Seems extremely unlikely considering the scales we're working with.


> the stated goal of the attack was to wipe out older imageboard culture



it's just trolling for the sake of trolling, doesn't really warrant discussion as to the why.

I am thinking of doing a Board Exchange Program with Uboachan. Is it a good idea? Here's how it would work:

A few of Uboachan's tamest boards where people are generally polite but there is currently almost no activity, namely the Dreams board, the Art/Oekaki board, and the Literature board, would be linked in Sushichan's menu, and clearly designated as being external boards. I am not sure whether I can work these into /kaitensushi/ easily, and I may not want to.

I am more hesitant to link Sushichan boards on Uboachan, but if I did, I would add Sushichan's Kitchen board, and possibly replace Uboachan's dead Japan board with a link to our Otaku board. (I would need to be convinced that this is a good idea.)

Please give me your thoughts in this thread.


>replace Uboachan's dead Japan board with a link to our Otaku board. (I would need to be convinced that this is a good idea.)
I like this idea, especially on the merit that it might bring a bit more liveliness to the discussions over there. I've never used Uboachan but I can't imagine the users of a Yume Nikki imageboard are gonna be so unruly as to make /otaku/ unusable lol


Sounds like a good idea. I'd say there's a decent crossover in the kinds of people who use Sushi and Uboa and it would help bring more activity to both sites.


I'm not enthusiastic about the idea because we already have threads for discussing dreams and literature here and if I wanted to use uboachan I would already be posting there, but if you go ahead with it I would at least insist that sushi boards be linked on uboachan (otherwise it's not an exchange) and that uboa boards not be incorporated into /kaitensushi/.

This hopefully isn't a problem, but in the past there have been multiple attempts to unify imageboards into a single community. One such unification exists right now which is known as the "webring". Before this there was an attempt in 2018/19? that existed solely to datamine users, and for the past 1 1/2 years there's been one guy creating imageboards on a weekly basis to spam everywhere he can (I think its a person called Space_ but I'm not sure).
I don't trust any of it and its spread some low-quality posters much farther than they should be (People from 8chan in particular).

Please don't join any of this stuff if they ever come here trying to convince you.

Not to break comfy, but lainchan as a community has changed a lot since the 8chan shutdown. If this happens, might need to keep a closer eye on the site than you do now. Just a thought.


Thanks, this had crossed my mind but I wasn't sure since I don't visit there often.


Those web rings are shady and one of the main reasons I dont really browse image boards anymore.




not even lainchan webring?

Thought this would be a good place to post any issues users run into. The only one I have dealt with yet is that attempting to go to the catalog of any board returns a 404.
PS. Ty for bringing back this lovely place <3

hide nginx version plz, it's a security risk

strongly recommend that you block TLS 1.0, TLS 1.1, and also enable TLS 1.3 for future-proofing so that only TLS 1.2 and 1.3 are enabled
e.g. put "ssl_protocols TLSv1.2 TLSv1.3;" to your server block, then test with "nginx -t", then "systemctl reload nginx", then check your site's tls with that link

strongly recommend you make a robots.txt in your website root directory to tell search engine site crawlers (google bot, bing bot, yandex bot, baidu bot, etc.) to stop indexing media files so you no longer get DMCA complaints (or at least much less than before), as copyright troll bots scour through google images et al. regularly

also maybe consider setting "$config['always_noko'] = false;" to true in instance-config.php, i hate it when it takes me back to the board's index.html when posting a reply to a thread


on second thought the cron job needs to be every week, since certbot can only renew early within 30 days of expiry, this would be a problem for months with 31 days, so it should be checked once a week instead, e.g. 0 0 * * 0 /usr/bin/certbot renew –quiet (dash dash quiet)


made a mistake, you need nginx-ctl when doing it in cron, it needs to be:
0 0 * * 0 /usr/bin/certbot renew –nginx-ctl /usr/sbin/nginx –quiet

(dash dash for nginx-ctl and quet, not emdash)
and if you're not on root account make sure you edit crontab with sudo crontab -e and not just crontab -e

Would you ever consider making the music on the front page fade in? It's kind of startling to have it suddenly start

Hey I'm an old lurker from back when sushichan was new. What happened to the Tycho and Aphex Twin that used to play on the front page? Can it be considered to bring that back?


Oh it seems that some browsers don't allow it. Perhaps iframe element functions. I also see that the old flim.mp3 was commented out. Perhaps it can become an alt for certain browser types?


I change up the music every so often. I might put up an old tune for a while eventually.


Adding on this, does the music starts randomly or is it supposed to start every time you access the website? Of all the times I've visited it, the music only showed up like two times.


Huh, weird. I don't really know why it would do that, but it has been temperamental for me at times as well.

Would anyone be particularly upset if I stopped allowing loli content in /lewd/? I have started becoming paranoid about hosting such content since a while ago, and I am afraid to link the site to people I know. Please give your thoughts in the comments.

anyone against this is a goddamned pedophile and ive reported each and every one of you ITT complaining the the fbi


Hi Yuno, long time no see. Wanna make out?




I support a ceasing of loli content in /lewd/. I don't care for loli stuff most places, but lewding them just feels a bit too much.


i would be sad but i understand your concern so o guess its up to you.

Can you please allow/support mp4 containers too?

This is completely standard web-acceptable H.264 8bit yuv420p and AAC in an mp4 container.


Oh yeah, I can do that. Sorry I didn't see this thread for such a long time.
