This thread is probably unnecessary but I feel like it's the only way to notify the owner about a lot of recurring glitches. Local TV has been broken for about a week and a half. This happens often but it's usually fixed quickly. Why does this keep happening?

His mail adress is floating around here somewhere, also I think he's on the IRC sometimes or at least people there can give you the adress there.

I don't think a meta thread is that bad of an idea. But I could delete the thread after we fixed this issue if you want.

To be fair, I only drop by every other day to delete advertisements/spam and I haven't touched the TV page in years. It seems to be working for me, though. What kind of troubles are you having?
Other issues can be posted in this thread or you can reach me at saovq@gmail.com.

Image related. It might be browser related

I knew the English txtboard community was close but I didn't know the owner of SAOVQ was also the person that maintained Post Office

I wish I could delete posts, I'm drowsy and took a screenshot forgetting we were on a txtboard. But yeah, basically the video gets substituted with a black screen and a link for each video

That sounds like the YouTube embed isn't working. I was only able to reproduce it by disabling javascript. Could you check that that the embed isn't blocked by any of your extensions (adblock, ublock etc.)?

Hi! I got the same error and it's a mixed content security violation, you need to fix your js code to return https youtube link inside iframe when the Local TV page is loaded over https. Right now youtube embeds only works there with http, at least in modern Chromium based browsers.
8 Name: !Capey7gV1s : 2020-07-10 23:07
Ah, you're right! Thank you for the clear explanation. I also made sure that fonts are loaded over https now.

Why hasn't the racist spammer been banned yet? Are we being raided or something?

It happens to small boards sometimes. /tea/ occasionally got guys that would spam it with frogs and other things until they got bored because they got no response.
13 Name: !Capey7gV1s : 2020-11-03 08:40
It takes me two clicks to ban the person and delete all the posts they ever made, but they find it necessary to keep changing their IP address and return. I agree with the tactic of ignoring them and waiting until they get bored.

to keep changing their IP address and return
If they get new addresses by resetting the router, you can ban the whole ip ranges, usually only the last digit changes. If it's VPN users, making a premoderation system for them is very effective - there's online services that can tell you if an IP address is a proxy node, personally I use iphub.info
Both methods aren't very hard to implement, if your software doesn't support it already and they only affect a tiny fraction of normal posters(those who use VPN for different purposes).

Looks manual, consider they reply to people.
Sad, I don't understand why people do stuff like this.

Ask /tea/anon. Happens occasionally, must not care that much for automated spamming.
24 Name: Anonymous : 2020-11-05 17:35
Would it be too much work to put a wordfilter in for these sort of things?
This is getting sad.

I agree with the tactic of ignoring them and waiting until they get bored.
Problem with that is that even if the person doing it stops, there is a chance you will have copycats doing it and if it doesn't stop, it eventually becomes board culture.

board culture
The problem is this.
27 Name: !Capey7gV1s : 2020-11-05 22:19
I put a wordfilter in place. Hopefully it helps.
28 Name: Anonymous : 2020-11-06 16:12

I think you should also filter all non-ASCII characters. The spammer is using unicode as a loophole.
29 Name: Anonymous : 2020-11-06 22:44
>>28
Extended ASCII.
30 Name: Paperplane : 2020-12-17 09:24
I think we got an update. I can now reply to threads from the index page! Or I am dumb and never noticed this before.

that's not new
32 Name: !Capey7gV1s : 2021-02-08 13:11
I added some more aggressive range-bans and new wordfilters. We'll see how effective they prove to be.

Thank you for being responsible even on a very unpopular board.

We appreciate the effort! It was so disheartening seeing the board in the state it was yesterday
35 Name: Anonymous : 2021-02-14 22:53
Wait, did any older threads get deleted? Or what is →/read/1575002036/46 talking about?

If there are I guess there were threads made by someone coincidentally using the same VPN as the spammer.
37 Name: Anonymous : 2021-02-17 18:39
Feels odd a place like this even attracts spammers.
38 Name: Anonymous : 2021-02-18 22:51

Most spammers don't look for a place specifically, but just go through links until they find a site which they can reply on

WHERE IS MY SOURCE CODE
40 Name: Anonymous : 2021-03-14 21:34

It is (was?) github, but I'm not sure the repo.
41 Name: Anonymous : 2021-03-18 18:11
I think I'm one of the few people that actually uses the newspaper, so I thought I'd casually mention this:
Looks like even if our spammy friend is getting filtered from the main post office threads, his posts still appear in the "latest post" feature of the newspaper.
42 Name: Anonymous : 2021-04-03 21:26
I really like this place, is there anything I can do as a user to help with the spam problem?
43 Name: Anonymous : 2021-04-04 03:59
capey make me an admin
I have no life and I check this place like ten times a day so the glowing Afro-American spammer won't stand a chance
44 Name: Anonymous : 2021-04-05 01:59

You already failed the interview and outed your self as a newfren. Capey is really eutistic and doesn't take admins but only eutistic enough to check this place anymore then 50 times a day.
45 Name: Anonymous : 2021-05-17 21:02
Capey looks like the cp spammer is resorting to the photoboard now
