Captcha Anonymous 2334[Reply]

Any odds of moving to a non-tracking captcha alternative that doesn't penalise VPN users? 8chan, despite being otherwise a spaghetti-coded mess, uses some other non-google alternative.

Or failing that making it necessary only for thread creation rather than posting in existing threads would be good.

Anonymous Admin 2335

I've been disabling Captcha periodically to see if we're still getting spam. So far it's going well. I might disable it altogether soon and only switch it back on when neeeded.

Anonymous 2336

Much as I dislike captcha disabling it outright is not a good idea unless you've got 24/7 moderation coverage and even then puts you at the mercy of even a single dedicated spammer with nothing better to do. Limiting it to only thread creation instead should be an option in tinyboard, a good middle ground even if you stick with google's tracking-and-ai-training 'free' captcha.

is that possible?


Cece the lizard Anonymous 1255[Reply]

Meet Cece the lizard - or the lizbian - crystal.cafe's answer to Pepe the frog.
Based on an article about a certain type of lizard that is female only.
feel free to make your own versions of her or even edit mine, anything's a contribution.
By the way - this does not snuff out the miner waitress mascot girl. She would be the wojak equivalent.

>no fun allowed
Good thing you seem to be in the minority here.

Pepe might be annoying but he's far from a dead meme. He and Wojak will probably be around forever at this point, go look at any board on 4chan and at least 1/3 of threads have either of those two characters as the OP.

Anonymous 2278

4chan is shit though. They they are just as embarrassing as reddit was in 2010 with all the rage comics, and they don't even realize.

Anon, I think you just started a 21st century enlightenment.

I petition the guberment to remove the name field to force anonymous posting

Anonymous Admin 2184

I've been considering that for a while now. Still considering.

Anonymous 2194

i don't think we should

Anonymous 2225

That would be alright. Another alternative would be a randomized name for each thread. Flower names, mineral names, and the like would be a cool theme to something like that.


Team Applications 2019 Anonymous Admin 2071[Reply]

Hello everyone!

I'm looking for users who would like to volunteer on the board.
I'm taking applications via email. Your first task is to avoid asking where to send your application. I'm sure you can figure it out.

In your email, please write a short introduction about yourself, including your age, what you want me to call you, how you found crystal.cafe, and what you like and dislike about it. If I like your application, I will approach you with a set of hypothetical scenarios for you to respond to.


Can help with raids, delete posts, and make modposts to warn users.
Can ban users, see post history, delete posts, and make modposts to warn users.

You will start as a Janitor and will later be promoted to Moderator if everything works out.
You can volunteer to only moderate specific boards.

Post too long. Click here to view the full text.
4 posts and 1 image reply omitted. Click reply to view.

Anonymous Admin 2094

Yes, moderation works fine on mobile.

I'll reach out to applicants this weekend.

Anonymous Admin 2127

I've added 2 new janitors and will continue to talk to more applicants in the next few days. For the time being, I'm the only one who can see IP and post history, but Janitors can help with raids and maleposting. Just an update for everyone who's curious!

Anonymous 2145

I hope you added people from different timezones to the team. There has been a raid for the last 3 hours and nothing was deleted yet. It's a small one but still.

Anonymous Admin 2154

We have pretty good coverage and the team deletes raids quickly, however there's a technical difficulty which means that if a thread OP gets deleted, it will take a few hours for the board page to refresh, unless I am online and can refresh the board manually. This doesn't count for individual comments in threads, but it's still a pain and one of the reasons I'm planning to move to a different platform with less archaic code.

Anonymous Admin 2220

Currently at 0 reports, is there an issue?


Anonymous 1983[Reply]

themes work for all boards expect b, it is stuck on dark crystal
is this intentional?
1 post omitted. Click reply to view.

Anonymous Admin 1989

Yes, just to match the new year fireworks in specific threads. I'll revert this on Monday.

Anonymous 2068

for some reason specifically page 5 of /b/ is stuck on dark crystal lol

Anonymous Admin 2069

Fixed, there was another iteration of the fireworks in a different new year thread that I forgot about.

Anonymous 2203

Did dark crystal change? It use to be very dark now it's lighter, I really preferred the old theme for dark crystal since light colors hurt my eyes, can it be added to the style options?

Anonymous Admin 2204

Yes, I added a background to make it fit in better with the other themes, but I can put the old style back up as well. Please give it 2-3 days.

Have you ever considered making an /all/ board?

Picture not related.

Anonymous Admin 2074

We will move to a different imageboard software in the future, though I can't give an ETA right now. This will include an /all/ board, following threads, and multiple file uploads among other features!

Anonymous 2082

good luck with that!

Anonymous 2123


sounds fake.

the board is fine as it is.


Anonymous 546[Reply]

You guys can be kind of mean. (Not the staff but many of the people who post here.) You're not going to have a totally new and comfy place on the internet to hang out if you keep bringing around the same bitter attitude you picked up from other imageboards.

Before you comment just think for a second, is what I'm posting helpful? Is it kind? Is it charitable? Is it respectful? Maybe you should reconsider what you have to say or how you're saying it if it's none of those things unless you want this place to be just like everywhere else online.

Reddit is a trash site for trash people.

Anonymous 1488

i like the site i just don't want the know it all posters from lolcow and 4chan to take over. example the person trying to police the snow board. like get real. stop trying to tell people how to feel. i like that i can post my opinion and a crazy mod doesn't delete it.

Anonymous 2153

>I'm starting to feel like c.c consists mostly of 4ch and lolcow users trying to make fun of this site. But when I get deeper into this "lol look at those losers on this other website", I see that it's a general trend. Everyone's "raiding" everybody now.
There is nothing wrong with disagreements. Hostility and low quality insults are what I'm having problems with.

>Everyone be nice. No mean things allowed" idea is just gonna kill the site

"Everyone is an adult. Act like one." Is what I had in mind.

Please see point 7.


Raids and such Anonymous Admin 377[Reply]

I wanted to avoid a thread as to not give them more attention, but it is easier to discuss in one spot instead of having scattered comments here and there.

As you've surely noticed, Robots and /b/tards are invading because they are pathetic and water is wet.

I have hidden the friend finder thread temporarily because it contains contact info that they are apparently trying to take advantage of. I am also hiding the selfpost thread, Insta thread, let me know if I missed anything.

I'm sorry for the inconvenience caused by the invasions over the last few days and staff and I are doing our best to keep crystal.cafe clean!

Will the friend finder thread be restored?

Anonymous Admin 1874

Unsurprisingly we tend to have issues with men using these threads to contact users. It can be restored, but I'm open to other suggestions as well.

Anonymous 2120

Personally I think it could be renewed with a new thread that had some clear warnings for people to use throwaway accounts and exercise caution. I don't think the risk of male contact could ever be fully avoided, but I think people are interested in connecting outside of the site, especially since the discord is going away, and I think the model of having people screen potential contacts themselves is a better model than the discord model of having a few people screen everyone (though it's still far from perfect).
