Site Hosting

The site is currently hosted on a OpenVZ server in Charlotte, USA.
- 1G RAM+1G Swap
- 2 core Xeon CPU
- 45GB SSD (34GB used)
- 1Gbit uplink

Support NeXTCHAN For a Better Server

The current server will not be able to host everything we plan to introduce (IPFS archival, PIXIV/Mastodon integration, Matrix...). Please help support NeXTCHAN through donations.
Requirements for target:
- $20/mo for better server
- $15 for domain transfer to US registrar
- $15/yr for domain renewal
- Any extras are appreciated, and will be used for ads on other sites/chans and unexpected costs

Current Software Status

NeXTCHAN is currently running Blazechan 0.11.0+git20180611.

I want a feature added!

Please remember that not all requests are doable and currently Blazechan has a backlog of feature requests already.
Update 2018-06-11: I currently only have time for very minor fixes and as such cannot do feature requests. Additionally, a major backend refactor is planned, therefore no feature requests will be done until that (expected August in the latest).

oh, yeah, that's been one of the main suggestions, at the very least a dark-theme option

here's what I have so far, aside from specific mobile-posting things

-remove automatic ">" when quoting
-board index updating
-tripcodes don't stick
-"view last 50 posts" option
-cross-thread post previews
-ID highlighting (when clicking)
-youtube embedding
-(You)s or nametags
-custom themes, or a dark-theme option
-fix .png transparency for thumbnails
-add banner specifications (size, dimensions, number)

creating new threads seem to cause an error, but it actually turns out fine
just refresh the page after the error to see your thread pop up in the catalog
deleting duplicate threads you made will delete all of your past threads that are the same, so be careful about that

This has been fixed.


When can we use this site?

you can use it now, but it's still in heavy development
we also need to find a way to deal with spam

When are you going to institute better anti-spam protocols?

The captcha should be entered only once. Are you entering it multiple times for multiple posts?
The 'you cannot post too often' is probably because you entered the captcha wrong and Blazechan didn't delete the cache entry wrt to you posting. I'll fix that up in a minute.

>Allow users to refresh the captcha

I might do it, but that might prove troublesome because it can be used to abuse the captcha. I might add a burst limit to it, though.


Is the captcha hard to understand, or is it slow? What's wrong with it? I'll be glad to help you on your issues.


while we wait for a captcha implementation, can you install a sort of "you can't post too often" delay like 4chan? that could help with spam

i'll be using this thread to contain the spam

my idea didn't seem to work, i'll look for another way to mitigate spam

forgot tripcode
