This is where all the bitching and """constructive""" criticism goes. In all seriousness, suggestions are appreciated, we want to make this place better. We encourage respectfulness, but all on-topic posts are allowed.

New news entry on the homepage about /s/.


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

Hello again, Grimchan! Chan Roast sends warm regards to your imageboard. Don't worry Anons, we have permission from the site admin this time!
We don't mean to shill too hard, nor do we mean any harm to your board. We are merely a small, comfy hole-in-the-wall imageboard looking for some exposure.

The cafe's always open, Anon, so feel free to drop in.

Freshly roasted, just for you. :)



Can confirm they asked us ahead and we're cool with it.


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

Questions That Don’t Deserve Their Own Thread.
I’ll start: while the rules say that all boards are NSFW, porn dumps and obscene content will be deleted.
Could you clarify what constitutes a porn dump, and clarify what obscene content is? “Obscene content” is awfully vague, and “porn dump” is somewhat vague as well. I know porn threads will get yeeted as they should, but I’m curious to know what the cutoff limit is. Like two posts in a row? A post of 5 pr0n pics?

We need to find more cool things for Admin to implement considering that he listens to us!


He always has, nerdlingers.


thank you!

For those wondering, I'm still working on that purpletext feature and I am stumped. I placed that js someone linked in the javascript folder and enabled it, and it doesn't work for me for some reason. I have been trying to do it via CSS instead without any luck either, I'll keep looking into it thoug.


Do you have the purpletext code on hand? It might be something to do with how it's meant for a few specific 4chan boards as opposed to Grimchan.

Thank you so much mate! That'll help the site for sure.


Got 4, I'll try to find interesting things to stick them to.


Thank you so so much!

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.


- V8ch CSS is kill, no more glitchy themes
- Allow OP to post without an image
- Added support for .txt file extension
- Added purpletext JS to the js folder, though have yet to get it to function properly
- Forked w1cca CSS and began work on colour variant
- Added News entry on the homepage
- Saged Stickied threads
- Removed Janitor application info from Stickies (applications are now closed)
- Added Sea.CSS (note this theme is in beta, it's not very good right now, but won't cause any issues like V8 did)


- Enabled Miku.css
- Modified CSS with gif
- Added modified theme to dropdown list
- Modified w1cca.css, added a solarized variant (may have to refresh to see the change)


- Added team disclaimer in mod page

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.

Is there a way to view Grimchan's posting stats? I'm curious to see the average # of posts this chan gets.


I don't have it enabled but I can certainly look into it.


It's not something I'd be able to enable myself without illu, our other admin's help. And his computer is borked. I'll keep trying to look into this though, no promises I can get it going.

In other news, how would you guys feel about a textboard? If there's interest I'd do it, a lot of smaller places are implementing them.


I'm not so sure if a textboard is necessary for Grimchan. I mean, it might cater to a few select people, but most of us seem fine with every board allowing images.


Alright, works for me.

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"?

Are you going to take submissions for banners here? I could try to create some for it if they ever open up.

my adobe subscription expired and i cant use photoshop anymore. any recommendations for banner-making? im not a huge fan of using GIMP for gifs.


the base ones I made were done in inkscape, it's like adobe illustrator. As someone who took a class in illustrator I would say inkscape is better.

Possible banner?


by the power invested in me, I now declare this a banner.
