So it looks like Cox Cable (my ISP) currently blocks inbound port 80 but does not block for 443.
This basically means that going to http://tbpchan.net will not work nor will it 301 redirect to https://tbpchan.net.
So I have pointed the tbpchan.net to another web host which, in turn, redirects that URL to https://tbpchan.cz.
This is only a temporary solution - both thpchan.net & tbpchan.cz are the official website tbpchan so use either. Just be aware tbpchan.net redirects to https://tbpchan.cz for now.
I am currently working on server maintenance as the non-secure version of the website (e.g. http://tbpchan.net/) is currently not redirecting properly to the secure version of the website nor is it resolving at all.
You may see the site go down randomly but I'll try to keep that to a minimum.
Standby for updates and just use https://tbpchan.net/ for now.
We have moved over to a FreeBSD server with the latest version of Vichan!
It's rocking two Intel Xeon X5550 CPUs with 32gb of ram with some mirrored drives for redundancy.
I've switched over the XMPP server protocol to OpenFire since it's much easier to use and manage. Go register an account here:
After much fighting with the server…
We are now on NGINX!
It was a huge pain in the arse but I finally got this shite to work so be grateful you fags.
If you experience any problems, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
We have more domain names!
Since we have a .onion domain, we might as well have an OpenNIC domain as well. This is to make sure we aren't ever taken down by the thought police over at ICANN (or wherever) so shitpost away.
We now have a .onion domain!
This is for a multitude of reasons but I'm sure you can figure out as to why, especially lately.
The address is
so go ahead and shitpost freely from the privacy of 7 proxies; only thing is that if CP is posted, or links to sites that have CP, that content will be deleted and the tor service will be under a very careful watch and may be disabled completely if it gets too bad so don't fuck it up for others that use it that have a genuine privacy concern when it comes to free speech.
I have yet to find out how to change the ID of tor posters but it'll happen eventually - that ID will soon be changed to "00000" so keep a lookout.
We now have banner support!
When the time comes, I'll be setting up banner threads for people to supply us with more banners for each board.
Supported files are .png, .jpg/.jpeg, and .gif.
Current Max Filesize is 12mb with 20 files per post. Just to let you know.
You can now donate to keep this website alive!
The "DONATE" button is at the bottom of board pages since I don't know where else to put the stupid thing and it isn't annoyingly obvious.
VoIP Services are now available! TBP Industries has set up both a TeamSpeak server along with a Mumble sever! The TeamSpeak server is locked out at the moment but the Mumble server is open to all! Just connect to tbpchan.net and chat away!
Please note, however, that, since we are still running everything off of a Raspberry Pi 2, some problems could arise the more users we get to utilize the services available; once enough people start to use both the website and other services offered, we will switch to a far powerful server. The only reason TBP Industries uses a Pi to host everything is simply due to the small userbase and minimal power consumption.
The XMPP Secure Messaging Service is now live and open to any and all registrants! XMPP is a secure messaging service that can be used with a variety of software that can be completely encrypted end-to-end on nearly any operating system and hardware configuration. Feel free to register and use the TBPIndustries Communication Service.
TBPchan now officially supports mp4 files along with both webm/mp4 thumbnailing using ffmpeg binaries!
I've been working on this for damned months and I finally was able to find the culprit, which was $config['webm']['allow_audio'] = true; in instance-config.php, even though it isn't documented anywhere to be needed alongside $config['webm']['use_ffmpeg'] = true;.
Post away fellow tacticians!
Until I see fit, I'll just be running the website off of a Raspberry Pi 2 as it uses very little electricity since it's on all the time. When we get more users, I'll switch to either the laptop or to the full-on Xeon server.
Still working on MP4 support as well. FFmpeg isn't playing well, looking for alternatives or a workaround.
Welcome to TBPchan!
We here at TBPchan value free, and oftentimes offensive, speech. Feel free to post basically whatever you want as long as it is not any forms of CP and does not violate the DMCA of the US.
This board is constantly evolving and under my direct care; the server is very basic and I don't know what type of load that it can handle - everything here is basically untested.
I will be adding in MP4 support in the coming weeks, it's a pain in the ass.
If there are any requests for new boards then just make them in /r/ - there's a pinned thread for it. I'll pretty much add nearly any board that is requested but it's entirely up to TBPnet staff.
