Okay some seriousness now: There's a field called "desu", in which you're supposed to write "desu".

It's like a captcha that is always the same. This is an intentionally primitive solution against spammers, for various reasons. It can be very effective if the spammers are dumb. If they are reading this, they aren't dumb, so there's no point in hiding details! Yay!


  • Type "desu" in the field that says "desu". That's all
  • If you have javascript and cookies enabled, you might not need to enter it at all!
  • If you use noko or sage, you don't have to enter it at all!
  • Leave suggestions and angry comments in this thread
  • If you can't post at all for some reason, get on irc and we'll try to help. Unless you hit a timezone in which the devs are sleeping (by "the devs" i mean just myself).

Way to go, dx!
It ALWAYS needs more Desu!

Thank you, based mods! Let's put a toast and hope for way less spam on Desuchan in the future!

Nice going, devs. Looks like the issue is solved!

What sorcery is this?
More desu AND no spam, all in one fell swoop?
This must be the best idea I've ever seen.

I dig it. Yesterday I was getting server errors but now everything seems better. Hopefully this will keep spambots away

>> No.1866   [Delete]   [Edit]

I think bots have gotten past the filter on the loli board. Either that or users are posting CP

>> No.1871   [Delete]   [Edit]

It isn't about blocking everything, we just wanted to block the drive-bys.

Anything you see posted now is specifically designed for us OR human.

What happened to 'Desu'? I only see 'Boku'

>> No.1876   [Delete]   [Edit]

they seem to alternate. i see both.

>> No.1877   [Delete]   [Edit]

just an idea. how about removing the "http:" from the href in img tags?
leaving just "//desuchan.net/rest-of-url" makes ssl users automatically go to "https://desuchan.net/rest-of-url" and non-ssl users get the same old url

>> No.1878   [Delete]   [Edit]


Huh. I've only been able to get "boku" since a day or two after the Captcha was created

>> No.1879   [Delete]   [Edit]

maybe there's a name change plan. bokuchan.net

>> No.1881   [Delete]   [Edit]

NOT gonna happen. You can put desu boku noko or sage in the field, they all work.

>> No.1882   [Delete]   [Edit]

maybe the new name will be nokochan.net then

I don't think the captcha is helping the CP. You don't need to use the captcha actually..

>> No.1899   [Delete]   [Edit]

Like I said earlier. It isn't about blocking everything, we just wanted to block the drive-bys. You notice we have no more "uggs boots", "LV bags" or "air jordan shoes" shit.
Those were bots.

The CP you see now is all done by humans. Specifically like one or two dudes.
And they are kinda smart, it's annoying.

>> No.1905   [Delete]   [Edit]

So there's some cp (or at least, spam that looks like cp) on the top of a few boards. Why aren't we pulling those down?

>> No.1906   [Delete]   [Edit]

Do we need more mods? I could help if that's the case.

>> No.1907   [Delete]   [Edit]


>> No.1908   [Delete]   [Edit]


>> No.1919   [Delete]   [Edit]

So, ugh, spambots are back being smarter? There's been some CP advertising on some boards posted recently.

Guys im still lurking all the damn time, I can be mod now?

Literally only wanna be a mod to delete cp
(doing the exact same thing on another chan)

Are these guys using similar urls for all these links? auto ban+delete anyone using these urls?

I'm tired of having to delete my cache every time I get on desuchan, and tired of having to forewarn non chan people I send to /md/ to pick up the current tales "OH hey there might be CP!"
It gets really awkward when I run into people who don't know what cp is

>> No.1943   [Delete]   [Edit]

get the hell on IRC, poke weedy about it. Oh, and you should really be in IRC as much as possible, because reasons.

Don't think I don't know exactly what "reasons" cacheram

...and I've been busy with college and work but I've got a couple weeks off here, so I should have a lot more time to hop online

>> No.1945   [Delete]   [Edit]

Oh on a sidenote, just realized, this same person/bot is cp bombing lainchan too, I wonder how many others are getting hit with this or if anyone has a solution

>> No.1948   [Delete]   [Edit]

site devs are working on a solution. The finished product will be ready soon™. Pic related.

>> No.1949   [Delete]   [Edit]

Is irchighway down? I can't connect

>> No.1998   [Delete]   [Edit]

Wasn't there an archive for Desu? Or was that for one of the other chans? (Aurora or Ubuoa).

>> No.2007   [Delete]   [Edit]

Yeah there is.
