Quit lurking. Get posting.

Site Updates — by Circlepuller at 02/01/19 (Fri) 09:27:26

With it being cold as shit out, I've been stuck inside working on the site. As you can see, there's a new homepage design that isn't as fucking broken as the old one - you can actually navigate it on your phone. I'll be getting some work done on the JavaScript code for the site since it's getting rusty and gross.

Also, I've added two new boards for the testing tables:

>>>/au/
For people who take the Initial D anime too fucking seriously.

>>>/sp/
For the handegg manchildren. (My home teams suck, I'd like to inform everyone)

As with other boards on the testing table, don't expect these to be permanent boards without some form of validation. If there's a board you want to see on here, please suggest it in >>>/aw/

Trial Boards — by Circlepuller at 12/20/18 (Thu) 23:37:09

It's that time of year where nice things come to AwsumChan - new boards.

>>>/he/
A board for you fucking perverts to post big anime tiddy gfs since HentaiHaven (RIP) got ruined by furries and Tumblr got Yahoo'd.

>>>/ta/
I play competitive Yu-Gi-Oh (lul) so I figured this would be a board worth trying out for those who play card games or stuff like Dungeons and Dragons or Warhammer. Yes, Hearthstone is counted here.

>>>/vi/
The essential video games board. AwsumChan has almost always had a /vi/ but this iteration tried to cut the fat. Figures it'd happen alongside a tabletop games board.

If you wanna complain about your gifts, fuck off and die. Otherwise, enjoy!

We're Getting Old — by Circlepuller at 06/03/18 (Sun) 06:22:12

As of May 10, AwsumChan is now 8 years old. For something that started as a really shitty IB4F board, that's not bad at all I guess.

Also I'd like to note that behind the scenes, a lot of work is being done to the underlying Tinyboard (also known as vichan) software, and it seems to be working great. And no, we don't blindly break the site on every update.

[We make sure to see if you can still post on a locally-hosted demo]

Happy Thanksgiving you miserable quiet fucks

Welcome back, AwsumChan! — by Circlepuller at 10/26/17 (Thu) 19:08:00

After a hiatus that lasted far too long, AwsumChan has returned! I would like to apologize for the time it took me to get the site back up despite having the resources to do so, and I appreciate the dedication and patience that the community had - it surprises me you guys stuck around this long. I would also like to thank the vichan developers for keeping the (formerly) Tinyboard codebase updated. Without that, pushing some of the updated code would have been a lot more difficult, such as reCAPTCHA v2, which is necessary for spam prevention. reCAPTCHA v1 was ineffective and a repellent for a majority of the users when AwsumChan tried it years ago.

In addition to the changes to spam prevention, I've also forced SSL use on AwsumChan to keep up with the ever-increasing necessity for privacy and security. Previously, the site lacked any transport encryption and was fairly insecure in that respect.

I'd also like to mention our IRC channel, #awsumchan, is located on m.ircd.moe, port 6667 for non-SSL users, and port 6697 for SSL users who desire a little more security when they chat.

Finally, I'd like to note that the index of the site will be experiencing several changes in order to bring back the fancy board list that it used to have, even if we don't have that many boards at the moment.

Thanks for sticking around guys.
