4chan Undergoing Major Revision, Getting Public API

timothy posted about a year and a half ago | from the waiting-on-the-verticals dept.

Open Source 166

AdmiralXyz writes "Even the darkest corners of the internet aren't immune to the Web 2.0 boom: BoingBoing reports that 4chan is working on the largest codebase update in its history. The new 4chan will include as standard the functionality of popular browser plugins for using the site, as well as a JSON API so- hooray?- anyone can have immediate access to the contents of 4chan for any purpose they like. This represents a significant update to the heretofore haphazard development process of 4chan, and opens up the possibility of third-party 4chan apps... though probably not on the App Store."

What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little fucker? Iâ(TM)ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and Iâ(TM)ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and Iâ(TM)m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. Youâ(TM)re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and thatâ(TM)s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your little miserable life off the face of the continent, you little fuck. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little âoecleverâ comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you could have held your fucking tongue. But you couldnâ(TM)t, you didnâ(TM)t, and now youâ(TM)re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. Youâ(TM)re fucking dead, kiddo.

I'll kick your ass faggot. You think you're tough? lets see how tough you are with a couple rounds from my .45 lodged in your skull. Kinda hard to talk shit when I've blown half your face off. You better watch yourself faggots, I work for the fucking CIA, if I want you dead, you are dead. Its that fucking simple. Watch your god damned fucking mouth. I have over 30 years military training, I would rip your spine out while raping your fucking mother up her dried up old skanky cunt. I would then proceed to bundle up what remains of your body and shove my 12 inch cock down your throat and skull fuck you till my cum oozes from every hole in your body. Watch your fucking back. I'm coming for you.

listen you cunt, i cant call you fat but i can definitely call you a cunt because you're being one.

you are a fucking pathetic little faggot bitch, and i want you to come to my house and spew the same bullshit you post in here to my face.

oh wait,i dont need to worry about you coming to my house because you would never do it. youll just continue to sit behind a fucking computer screen and act like fucking mike tyson to every guy you meet, when in reality you are a fat virgin neckbeard loser with cheeto dust in his beard and a pillow with a hole in it that you fuck every night

seriously, its so god damn pathetic to just watch people like you. like, i want to try to be angry at you, but honestly i just want to be your friend out of pity because i know you dont have any besides the friends on your wow account.

you should honestly just draft up a suicide note right now and continue adding to it every day little by little as the failures of your life pile up day after day and you wil finally have an entire book worth of your failures and can finally kill yourself and make your family and online friends happy.

of course, you would probably fuck it up and miss your brain stem so you have to shoot yourself in the head 2-3 times while in agony to go out like a wounded dog, or you will try to mix bleach and ammonia but the room will be a bit too ventilated so you weel literally feel the chlorine gas burning away the lining of your lungs and suffer in horrific, unfathomable agony for 5 minutes as you literally burn and melt from the inside out after you start vomiting up your own lungs and liquefied lung begins pouring out of your nose and you slowly suffocate to death.

You fucking tell ANYBODY on these forums what to do again, and you're going to find out the hard way what a fucking baseball bat to the side of the skull feels like. Think I'm fucking kidding? I have your IP, I know who you are, and Im more than willing to settle this argument face to fucking face. You call yourself "Hooligan"? We'll see who's the hooligan when one of us is lying face down in a pile of their own blood, shit, and piss. Try and order someone else on here around, and see what fucking happens to you.

you feel like punching me in the face? bring it on you faggot. I know multiple fighting styles, and I also carry a switchblade with me at all times. Something fucking tells me that you'd be better off keeping your arms down at your sides. If you can't fucking put "cause" and "effect" together in that pathetic brain of yours, I'll help you out here. You'll be standing face to face with me, and let me fucking tell you, it'll already be too fucking late to back down at that point. You might decide "well shit, I might as well stay true to my word and throw a fucking punch". This is where you will go wrong. I hope you don't have a job that requires two fucking hands, because you're going to be missing one after I'm done with you. I'll casually divert your fist off to the side, as you suddenly realize you may have gotten yourself into something you can't back up. You'll try to regroup and pull your arm back, but that wont be easy when I jab my spear-pointed Benchmade switchblade straight through the bone in your forearm, and proceed to rip your entire fucking forearm and hand off in one quick pull. At this point, you'll probably spend 2 seconds in shock. I say 2 seconds, because thats the amount of time you'll have before I reverse the knife in my hand, and uppercut it straight through your throat. You'll spend your last few seconds gurgling blood, and wondering where you went wrong. After that, I'll be forced to take care of any witnesses who happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Nothing a few quick choke slams can't fix, followed by a nice gentle slice across the jugular with the Benchmade.

Now, motherfucker, you sure you want to go through with that punch?

Next time you think about saying something like that to me I want you to remember one thing. I know the guy that created google maps and I can locate you in the time it took me to type this.Don't want anymore problems....didn't think so faggots. You have any idea what gorilla warfare is.?

I was mongling some cocks late one night
When my eyes beheld an awesome sight
All the tripfags' cocks began to rise
And suddenly, to my surprise

They did the mash
They did the 4chan mash
The 4chan mash
It was an internet smash
They did the mash
It caught on in a flash
They did the mash
They did the 4chan mash

Leonidas!

From thermopylae where i fought so well
To my restaurant in the depths of hell
This is SPARTAAAAAAAA! I cried to my men
But the Persians all formed up and then

They did the mash
They did the 4chan mash
The 4chan mash
It was an internet smash
They did the mash
It caught on in a flash
They did the mash
They did the 4chan mash

Raptor Jesus!

The Admins were dropping' bans
They party had just been vanned
The guests included Slowpoke,
Magic- and Rabbit-chans.

Pedobear!

The scene was rockin' when some loli came in
I wanted to commit a deadly sin
They party van had just arrived
But, though i was sure they weren't here to jive,

They did the mash
They did the 4chan mash
The 4chan mash
It was an internet smash
They did the mash
It caught on in a flash
They did the mash
They did the 4chan mash

Moot!

THEN OUT FROM THE SHADOWS, MOOT'S VOICE DID RING
SEEMS HE WAS TROUBLED BY JUST ONE THING
AS THE TROLLS AND GAIAFAGS QUICKLY MADE TRACKS
"B&!", HE PROCLAIMED, "GET OUT OF HERE, SNACKS!"

SNACKS... DID THE MASH
HE DID THE 4CHAN MASH
THE 4CHAN MASH
IT WAS AN INTERNET SMASH
HE DID THE MASH
IT CAUGHT ON IN A FLASH
HE DID THE MASH

I agree. I think this article should be removed, since some other article is clearly blocked from being published due to its presence. Worse still, approximately 762k of disk space and a mind numbing 3 million bits of data have been absurdly wasted on this catastrophe of a submission. My eyes are bleeding just imagining the horror. What were the editors thinking? Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go comment on some more interesting article on a real tech web site (like Kuro5hin), before recompiling my kernel.

Re:Uh oh... (2)

Nobody mentioned /g/, here.

While /g/ used to be good even just a couple years ago, it went considerably downhill due to lack of moderation.
Hopefully the new moderation that is incoming will fix it.
I miss the good programming threads and esoteric hardware designs and discussion. (they still happen, just rarer)

Sadly on 4chan, "board culture" took over the actual damn separate boards. Of course, the same even happens on here occasionally, such as actual stories being posted in idle and the other way too.
When one board gets crap, a whole bunch of users move to some other board and post off-topic crap and generally crap all over the boards.
Then there are the board wars which are getting worse by the year.

Harder moderation can't come sooner.

I think the point of the summary is that even the seedier side of the internet sees itself benefiting from new technology. That has policy implications (Faux News Headline: Is web 2.0 really just a way to hide Child Porn from police?

They were pretty much forced to go the JSON API route. Every power user of 4chan (which is pretty everybody) uses the 4chan x extension, that pounds the servers for thread updates (it downloads the complete page and parses it every 10 seconds (default is 30, but most change it to 10 for doing well in troll chess)).

We need a rethink (2)

shiftless (410350) | about a year and a half ago | (#41281887)

It's interesting to see the evolution of forums and chat as we continue into the Internet Age. As forums get larger and larger and number of messages posted increases, it quickly exposes the flaws of the current paradigm. We need a rethink of forum/chat systems. The old PHPBB/SMF/VBulletin deal is inadequate and does not scale. Slashdot has some of the right ideas, but I don't think it's the holy grail either.

ITT: Others brightly chime in with awesome ideas of how to innovate in forums, only to have their ideas shamelessly stolen err borrowed by err..someone who then goes on to make millions of bucks from it. Or just creates something fucking awesome and gives it away free to mankind....THEN people just hand him $20s all day long on the street cause he's so awesome. (Right...) I dunno exactly what the future holds, ladies and gentlemen, but when thinking minds come together I know we can figure out what the future should look like, then implement it. So let's hear it.

My suggestion is do whatever these guys [ycombinator.com] have done to keep eternal September at bay as long as possible.

ITT: Others brightly chime in with awesome ideas of how to innovate in forums

As far as Slashdot, disallowing AC posts might help raise the level of discussion. Maybe remove the karma cap and make the number publicly available maybe beside the user name. Since the community is large and healthy, disallow new users from posting for at least 3 days to stop some of the hit and run trolling. Something else that could be tried is maybe make a person lose some karma points everytime they post. That way people would more likely post things they think will get modded up rather than "me too" type stuff. Last but not least, how about bringing on the mighty "hell ban"? When a user trolls and trolls until his karma gets terrible, instead of just starting off his posts at -1 from then on, you bring in the hell ban. From the posters perspective, he is posting as normal and he can see his posts like he always could. But from the perspective of everybody else, his posts never actually appear. What happens is the poster eventually seeing that nobody is feeding his trolling, moves on or starts another account hopefully with a better attitude.

Re:We need a rethink (0)

Anonymous Coward | about a year and a half ago | (#41283109)

I've got about 50 sleeper accounts stored in my MS Access database, ready for trolling. If karma is ever a problem, you can just scroll to the bottom of the page, find something that looks good, and post it at the top to steal mod points. If there were a jail implemented, I'd just use proxies (the proxy detector is actually bullshit; it's piss easy to find a working proxy).

But why can't you guys just stop because these kids have feelings and they aren't even biologically ready to even engage in sexual activities nor understand it. These kids can't enjoy it, why do you think the organizations such as the FBI are so eager to stop it? It's all in your head and it's just a sick fantasy. Why not make a change today and put an end to CP? because even if it's just 1 person that will possibly make 1 kid happier. I'm not talking about 13+ really because everynewt gingrich knows some of them are actually ready and that goes down to society which I'm not going to discuss. Stop the suffering, stop CP!! You know it's wrong! Inb4 pedofag makes fail attempt at justifying pedophilia

Oh for fuck's sake. You're a.....SURVIVOR???? Oh you poor, poor little lamb.

  I don't know what nonsense you've been fed, but it's time for a wake up call. A person who lives through a plane crash is a survivor. Walked out of the twin towers? Survivor. Ship went down but you made it to shore? Survivor.

Whatever you experienced did not kill everyone in the room but you, so stop with your drama queen bullshit, turn off Dr. Phil and grow the fuck up. I swear to fuck, this world is nothing but god damn victims and they're the biggest bunch of pussies on the planet.

There are already third party 4chan apps like the 4chan browser extensions, 4chan mass image downloaders... I don't understand exactly what new doors the API changes are opening up. If anything, these changes will probably cause problems for 4chan. I was under the impression the whole reason that site had such a big community was it's simplicity.

Re:Ehhhh.... (0)

Anonymous Coward | about a year and a half ago | (#41281869)

The current third party apps are bringing problems to 4chan, continuously scraping the site has been hard on the server. By releasing a good API, they hope to reduce the stress on the server by quite a bit.

Re:Ehhhh.... (0)

Anonymous Coward | about a year and a half ago | (#41281907)

Moot himself has said that about 1.5% of 4chan's userbase actually uses the userscript extensions. He should just take the money he gets from selling personal information to the FBI and buy more Mac Minis for his server cluster.

Web 2.0 denotes websites where the content is posted by the users, not the owners. 4chan (an image board) has always been Web 2.0.

Re:Hold onto your butts (0)

Anonymous Coward | about a year and a half ago | (#41282013)

This will change exactly no things. People will complain about the change, there will still be apps, people will still shitpost, and the world will keep on spinning.

Actually, since the 4chan inline extension is optional, the entire site is doing way more to be user-friendly than literally any other website ever. That said, people are actually _welcoming_ the change, if you've seen those threads on /q/. What's that, the most fickle userbase on the Internet is welcoming change? Must be good (at least, in comparison to what was there previously). Once Chris can decide on something optional to offer to users and starts taking people's money, the two banner ads might go away too.

Who are you kidding, moron?

Most of the people who visit both those sites most likely already pass 4chan or are the types of people that would make better posters than all you idiots who even think summer exists when moot has already stated countless times that there is no increase in posting numbers during summers or any major changes of per-IP access per hour.

I wish all of YOU would leave and go back to wherever you came from so 4chan can be good again.

App Store (1)

mr100percent (57156) | about a year and a half ago | (#41281885)

though probably not on the App Store.

Actually, Apple has allowed many forum reader and commenting apps on the App Store. Alien Blue is considered the best app for reading Reddit, arguably using the touchscreen is way better than browsing on a PC/Mac.

Re:App Store (2, Informative)

Anonymous Coward | about a year and a half ago | (#41281959)

There WAS a 4chan app on iOS, but it was removed for having access to NSFW materials. Simultaneously, there are at least 3 competing ones on Android. And Windows Phone doesn't have any apps.

Re:App Store (0)

Er, reddit has NSFW content too. Any idea why it was not banned?

4chan != /b/ (5, Insightful)

dontbemad (2683011) | about a year and a half ago | (#41281897)

"Even the darkest corners of the internet" Why is that entire site synonymous with a single one of its numerous channels? And even dumber still, I would expect at least a decent number of slashdotters to understand the concept of user-generated content. Yes, 4chan has seen child porn, racial biggotry, and graphic images posted before, and it probably will again. For that matter, facebook has seen them, youtube has seen them, and numerous other sites where users can submit content without peer review have as well. The "omg 4chan so evil" hype created by the mainstream media and spearheaded by faux news is long over. Stop drawing undue attention to the site, stop creating FUD over absolutely nothing new, and stop sounding like children on a site designed to inform the more intelligent masses on the internet.

Re:4chan != /b/ (0)

Anonymous Coward | about a year and a half ago | (#41282005)

Even modern /b/ is fairly tame. It's more like /soc/, while /v/ is /b/ 2.0, /a/ is /v/ 2.0, and /g/ is /a/ 2.0.

Fucking Investment Banker (formerly known as I am a proud, law abiding investment banker and pedophile!tripcode!tripcode2, but he dropped that part after he started spamming CP and talking about his trips to Cambodia), is responsible for getting 95% the Tor exit nodes banned, single-handedly. What a dick.

4Chan can update it's codebase, but I still cannot post Unicode chars or have a decent editing box on /.. The mobile version breaks on me standard android browser more often than not, and no matter what I do, carriage returns have to be manually input as HTML. Really fun on a touchscreen keyboard.

Public's View of 4chan (1)

Anonymous Coward | about a year and a half ago | (#41282495)

Is as silly as tech illiterate people's view of the internet. If you think Joe Sixpack's view of the internet being anyone who uses a computer being some insane hacker, why do you think the same of 4chan? While /b/ may be a large board, there are many other boards out there that do not partake in anything highly illegal every waking moment. If you venture onto any other board than /b/ you'll find that just about everyone despises the board for the name it brings us.

Re:Public's View of 4chan (1)

Sarten-X (1102295) | about a year and a half ago | (#41282961)

And the Roman Catholic church is still thought to be full of pedophiles, even though it's only a few priests who actually are, and all government officials are accused of being corrupt, even though most are making an honest effort to do their jobs right.

All groups become stereotypes, based on whatever the most well-known characteristic of the group is at the time. It's a human mechanism for simplifying the complexities of a diverse society. 4chan, at least, has an administrator who could clean up or close /b/, but chooses not to. Moot chooses freedom over reputation, and by accepting that and using the other parts of 4chan, you are accepting that you are a part of the 4chan group. That means that you accept the stereotype will be applied to you.

This is not to suggest that people should not use the better parts of 4chan willingly, but merely to point out that they should understand what they're getting in to. Similarly, political candidates know they will be accused of corruption, and Catholic priests expect to face fears of pedophilia.
