I highly recommend using cloudflare's csam scanning tool to stop illegal images from appearing on your site. It also helps to block proxies as well. I think as an imageboard community we can stop this shit but we need to start taking measures to put an end to it. If you want to step away from your board for awhile don't leave posting open. It will get spammed. Just put it in read only until you come back.

And yes, I'm posting this on all the imageboards I find. No I'm not a bot.

Hi a fellow federal agent,
Please go suck your pennes. While the tool might be useful for actually removing CSAM, it makes your site reliant on Cloudflare which can be possibly DDoSed / held for ransom + you are giving all the glowies OP.

This reads straight out of a mobster movie where the gangsters go to a local establishment that's opened recently and go "Ya got yaself a pretty-lookin' shop here. Real nice job with the curtains. Ya know, there's been a lot of broken windows happenin' around these parts ya see? Would be a real shame if some punks came in here and threw rocks at your windows every week. You should try to get rock-proof windows sometime soon, ya know. There's this guy I know, real friendly, he can get them for ya in no time, I can get them for ya at a discount too! Only 20% of your profits a week, capisce? Heeeey better than gettin' them windows broken all the time!"

it's not like it really makes a difference or anything, but is there any reason the audio on the main page comes from an embedded youtube video rather than just an uploaded file? i guess it works either way

I've been slipping over this thread now for months somehow.

I'm pretty sure the referer thing is an issue with Vichan itself, but there may be a setting I haven't noticed.

Also, it sounds like people do want me to change the song so I'll try to figure something out since I guess it's tradition.

Unfortunately I can't find any option that would disable the referer stuff. I don't know what the other sites did.

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,
~Seisatsu

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.

 No.960

>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

 No.961

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.

 No.965

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/.

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?

Strong oppose from me. Discord exists solely to be a spyware platform. To even sign up in the first place Discord demands an E-Mail, phone number, and your birthday (you can lie but still, why?). From what I've seen all it does is create unnecessary drama, and a division between the main site and the Discord will inevitably happen.
IRC unfortunately isn't accessible to new users, but its way more flexible and user-friendly (not spyware). Matrix/Element would honestly be a good choice considering its FOSS that has multiple security/privacy measures in place and is reasonably "modern".

I didn’t write anything before because I didn’t think Seisatsu-sama would do it, but I’ll post my disagreement with the idea even if it’s too late.
Calling the Uboachan Discord ‘explosively active’ is an understatement. It has more than one thousand members apparently, while Uboachan itself only gets a few posts per day. It’s clear that whatever flow of traffic there is between Uboachan and the Uboachan Discord server, it’s a one-way street, which is something I think many of us have seen before, because Discord is an outright competitor to imageboards in a way that IRC never was. The Sushichan server will become its own community, will inevitably attract people who don’t use Sushigirl at all, and it will almost certainly have the same one-way flow of traffic, so why even promote it here?
Not to mention that Discord has a terrible privacy policy and reserves the right to share your data with third parties at any time.

 No.964

>>963
I have a few thoughts here.

Uboachan was not much (if at all) faster before the Discord was made, and the two communities have almost no interest in each other. They are separate things. Very few discord users use the boards and vice versa. Almost all of the Discord users came from outside the Imageboard community.

Currently the Sushigirl Discord has one channel mapped to the IRC channel, and 4 users (plus the staff). The Uboachan Discord server is a massive community with dozens of channels, and I have no such plans for the Sushigirl server. If I make a large Discord server, there is large potential for a dumpster fire to happen, and then I need a ton of staff, and I really don't want to deal with that. Uboachan's Discord is enough to handle.

I think the biggest concern you've brought up here is privacy and I'd like to see if anyone else is worried about that. Using IRC will prevent Discord from collecting any info other than your text though.

One of my biggest incentives for making the Discord server was a total lack of decent IRC support on mobile. All of the apps suck, and I am not sitting in front of a computer all day like I used to. I needed something with good mobile support to keep in contact with my moderation staff, so the moderation channel was bridged a while back, and then I bridged the main channel yesterday.

Another incentive for me was that I have to use special software on IRC just to be able to see what happened when I was not signed in, and that ultimately makes it a bad platform for keeping in touch with my moderators.

Anyway if anyone else has objections I would like to hear them, and it's possible I could roll back this change, but mostly I did it so people can chat from their cell phones and I am currently only planning to have the one channel.

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.

hide nginx version plz, it's a security risk
>tecmint.com/hide-nginx-server-version-in-linux/

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
>www.cdn77.com/tls-test/result?domain=https%3A%2F%2Fsushigirl.us
>libre-software.net/tls-nginx/
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
read:

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

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)
