Welcome to the official board suggestion thread! Suggest your ideas for boards here. If you see a suggestion you like, give that post a (you). If there's enough interest, we'll make a trial board.

That was almost a year ago though, wasn't it?


You guys should close your SSH port since it is currently open to anyone, also i would recommend hardening your Ubuntu installation you run this website on,


We have other measures in place when it comes to SSH, we've got that covered. Thanks though.


Is this the hacker known as 4chan?


By the way, while I appreciate the security testing, I think it'd be much more appropriate if you contacted us from some of the other places mentioned on the site rather than making a post out in the open. You know, in case of sensitive info. Still appreciate the concern regardless.

I thought he was busy stealing flags


Gimmie an art board, and I'll post. As long as I dont need a name and shit.



Nah anon ofc not. We usually do generals in /b/ and then if there's enough interest we make it a board




Kinda self explanatory but add support for .mp3, .wav, and .ogg files.

I just added some local analytics at the request of Unity. The software is Matomo, if you have JS disabled it will not track you whatsoever. Your IPs are anonymized, and we really can't see much info besides what country you're from and what page you visit. We just did this to see how the site is growing.

Will you use this data to showcase that Canadians degrade the quality of any and all boards they happen to touch?


we don't manipulate data to tell lies here, sorry

In an effort to keep better track of changes made to the site, and things that still need to be done, this thread will be about updates and whatnot. It's more for me than anything but I am assuming others might be interested to see what's going on too.

I'm going to give a quick rundown of the survey's results and how I plan to address some of the various issues that were raised.

I'll be addressing the answers to each question in replies below.

Thank you to all who completed the survey.

>If you could change one thing…
Once again, all serious responses are about traffic. And once again, that's on users to share the place with others they think might like it. So if you want more traffic, create more traffic, get people posting.

>IRC channel
Mostly No/Maybe.

Due to all the Nos and Maybes, we will not be creating an IRC. Users may do so if they wish but I will not be doing it. In the meantime we have a Telegram listed in the top links and a Discord for /bant/ users is listed on /b/ (though this is not officially linked to Grimchan).

Yet again a little surprised, but oh well.

Wow, that is a lot of maybes.

Based on this, I'll be opening mod slots.

>Other suggestions
Quite a few of these, so I'll address some of them directly.

>Being too democratic may attract normies

Normies don't often use imageboards. And the term is arbitrary, who am I to bar certain people based off a blanket term like that? The site being as democratic as it is has allowed a community to form.

>Affiliate with other quality boards

We're working on this, actually! Check out our Friends page in the board links. We always try to create good relationships with other sites, and are happy to add more to the list.

>Seems to be going just fine right now, there's a good community there and I hope it stays that way.

Same here! I'm glad the place is to people's liking, as they're the ones who shaped it. I had no set plan for how the site would turn out.


Wasn't 1 the response for "Heavily agree"?

Oekaki doesn't work.
It just appears as a blank space.
Madmind pls fix


Oekaki is just enabled by default as an option but I haven't set it up yet. I'm looking into this right now.

This is where I'll give reasoning behind major moderation issues that are relevant to the community.


In regards to this strange lolcow business;

I made it clear I won't ban users/delete their posts unless that user breaks rules explicity. You guys were bitching about some namefag and at the time he didn't do anything. He eventually was in a gray area and was warned. In response he spammed blatantly and was permabanned.

A bunch of you internet detectives decided to then go ahead and start spamming an image across the boards and pushing some strange lolcow business that was derailing actual discussion. This constitutes spam under rule 2. The offenders have been warned and if they take this beyond a containment thread then they will not get a second warning.

I highly suggest reading the rules before posting. I do hope you all understand the response, I feel it's justified, if not then your questions/comments are encouraged.


Yeah AOF is a right insufferable cunt, I called that ban hours before it actually happened.
You did good by permabanning him since he’s notorious on 4chan’s /bant/, /jp/, and to a lesser extent /qa/ boards. What you saw from him today was just a taste of what those three boards had to deal with until /jp/ dealt with it rather decisively by rangebanning UK from the board - which made the native Brits hate him even more after all the regular spam he did in Sakuya and Cirno threads with his low quality gore “OC”. Last I checked it was still in effect, but it was necessary because he’d ban evade, likely with a phone. But at least his home WiFi is static IP since he had to serve a month-long ban before on /bant/.

Keep an eye out for him though, I don’t think we’ve seen the last of him, and ofc I’ll tag him as AOF in my reports if I see him on this site again.

As for the other lolcow business, evidently I missed it.


Well thank you for your diligence in looking out for him anon. I would not have banned him if he hadn't spammed blatantly after being warned about it. In terms of the lolcow thing, a few people were pushing some image related to barney and calling him out as some sort of lolcow, and that barney image kept getting posted and derailing threads whenever it was. So the offenders got warns and nothing's happened since, so it should be fine.

All in all the lesson to be learned here (aside from read the rules) is that I'm not gonna ban people just for being shitty posters, you gotta break a rule.


aw damn, i guess i’ll never achieve my goal of becoming the worst poster here too.


Draw your own conclusions from this.



I will not delist the ACA because none of that drama is at all relevant to Grimchan. We are an inclusive imageboard and are happy to work with other websites who help us out regardless of our feelings on said websites.

We'd rather not be involved in fights/drama but instead we're creating friendships with whatever imageboards/coalitions we can.


Alright, I'd like to update this a bit. I'll try to be as straightforward as humanly possible with you guys about the situation.

Grimchan generally has a policy to be friendly with everyone. We're just a comfy little corner of the internet, not meant for drama. Even after asking everyone I can and going over the linked thread I have no intention of taking sides.

Now, that means no bias to either parties. So I did remove the link and left the discord. I have no bad blood with any members of the ACA, but also don't want to delve into the dumb /cow/ crap. We are staying 100% neutral.

Anyway, I made a personal promise in response to this that Grimchan will not join any sort of formal imageboard coalitions from now on, simply out of the fact they attract drama (warranted or otherwise).

So there. Hopefully that answers everything. If not I'll happily answer whatever anyone's wondering about.


I am pleasantly surprised by your reasonable response.


He's definitely way more level-headed than SaveTheInternet was.


didn't that dude constantly troll/dox/harass people all the time
