does zeronet have a blocklist boner? i'm all for blocking spam and cp, but do people really need to be empowered to make blocklists against people they don't like?

the Prostasia Foundation is looking for someone who can translate their post on the latest UN clusterfuck from English to Chinese. maybe someone here is interested enough in this issue to lend a hand?
We are looking for a volunteer to translate this post into Chinese. We already have a volunteer for Japanese (thanks!). DM us if you can help.
i just was informed that twitter is banning loli/shota for real this time, and all the artists i've been following are pretty upset, flocking to mastadon.
The United Nations is asking for feedback on a new set of proposals for the international community to rally against child prostitution, the sale of children, and child pornography.
But a close look at their definition of child pornography reveals that this extends a little bit beyond that. Drawings, cartoons, written stories, sculptures, and other forms of fictional works are also tucked in under the guise of "child pornography".
A progressive new CSA (child sexual abuse) prevention organization, Prostasia Foundation, recently did an excellent writeup on this UN proposal.
With zero evidence that banning these things helps children, and with experts fearing that bans like this could put children in jeopardy, it is absolutely premature to implement such a ban until the necessary research has been conducted.
there is no evidence that banning fictitious works has any impact on reducing CSA (child sexual abuse). some experts believe that bans on the types of things these UN guidelines seek to ban will actually lead to a rise in CSA.
This will have chilling effects.
Most anime, which frequently features high school aged characters, will fall under fire for having "underage" characters depicted. Novels, comics, fanfiction, art, fanart, sculptures, and other creative works featuring characters that "appear underage" (aka under 18) will similarly be harmed by the implementation of these international guidelines.
Websites operating in countries that follow these UN guidelines may find themselves reluctant to support anime or artist communities, since their duty to police content will become even more strict. We have seen the chilling effects on speech that puritan policies such as this have (see: Reddit's harsh subreddit bans, Steam's removal of adult games featuring high school aged girls).
Although the UN's intentions are surely noble, equating artwork to child pornography is a farce which undermines the very concept of harm that CP creation and dissemination has on children, and a slap in the face to survivors of childhood sexual abuse, whose very real depictions of abuse and trauma continue to circulate throughout the internet.
Anyone who would like to join me in presenting opposition to parts of the UN's proposal can do so. They are accepting comments by email. Comments must be submitted by 31 March 2019.
If you are an active member in anime or artist communities, please help spread the word about this issue. Together, we can convey to the UN and the international community why this new attack on free speech will not be tolerated.
everyone should strive to be more active on thunderwave
i kind of want to make a new board on the millchan engine but for the life of me i barely spend any time on zeronet anymore...
Millchan Engine, Millchan redesgined as a merger site with each board as a hub.
with this model, you only download the boards you want to, and can easily block bad boards just as you could any other ZN site.
i'm looking forward to seeing this get populated with boards.
this is seriously the most annoying thing about zeronet. i already manually removed the directory but the site remains on zerohello.
when i originally tried using Millchan a long time ago, blacklisting a board did NOT have the advertised result of deleting thumbnails and images on the board.
today after trying it again, i find that blacklisting a board now does delete the files.
so i guess this means it's a lot less risky to use.
that was cool, i clicked like on someone's post, and it showed me as clicking like on three of his other posts at the same time
china is offering up to 600,000 yuan ($118,000) for good citizens who report pornographic and other illegal content, so they can take it down from the internet.
that seems to be what the hubbub was about. this is what goes into effect Dec 1st.
it seems that china has announced some new punishment against anyone reported to be involved in drawing or filming pornography, prompting many to start deleting art they've posted online
if people don't start uploading videos on KxoVid i'm going to be forced to upload some truly deplorable content to fill the void.
on my galleryhub, changed the tags "genre:lolicon" to "female:lolicon" to be consistent with loligod, pomfpomfmoe, and lolirape galleries. i think right now there is only one galleryhub out there now that uses "female:loli"
there's new users starting to trickle in from a new zerome hub called MoonHub. you should download the hub so you can see their posts in the "Everyone" tab.
bad idea: someone should make some kind of adventure game in zeronet where everyone is controlling and making decisions for the same game.
think: zeronet plays zork
or something like that.
i have a good number of zites in an offline zeronet data folder i use for testing things. it could have had a working version of the games site that the owner defaced.
unfortunately i hadn't visited it. i was unaware of it or didn't care about it so i don't have a backup. sorry!
if i wipe my index.html on one of my sites and sign and publish the changes, is that state sponsored censorship? does it mean tor has been compromised? is this a failure of the zeronet network?
there's two really good live chats on ZN that are seldom used.
if you want to know when someone's said something new you can subscribe to all new messages on your Hello page for either zite.
0Play Game Center:
simply click "Following" at the top right.
supports requires the PeerMessage plugin, which means it features actual real-time chat and you don't need to wait 30 seconds to send a new message.
click the dropdown menu at the top right, and go to settings. where it says "Notifications in ZeroHello-Feed", you can set it to subscribe to "All Messages"
never miss a conversation again!
i have no idea how many years it will be before loki-net (clearnet) is developed enough to actually bother using. but the names they give their releases are too good to not follow the project.
lokinet 0.0.3 - something something traffic shape
LokiNET 0.2.1 (probably not backdoored edition)
LokiNET 0.3.0 (i can't believe it's not i2p)
i hope this has a bright future full of endless silly release titles.
i wish zeromail knew when you've recieved a message. i don't need a preview of its contents, which obviously have to be decrypted. a simple "You've got mail!" would be enough. it probably isn't possible with zeromail as it currently exists.
you know what else is really cool? sakana.bit
it's a frontend for ZeroMe modeled after Mastadon.
the extended circle view is great. it shows not only posts of the people you follow, but the people they follow too. so it opens the network up a little bit, a nice middle ground between "Followed users" and "Everyone". i just used it to follow someone i hadn't noticed before among the tide of all the global posts.
so KxoVid is pretty neat. a while back people were aching for "Youtube on ZeroNet". although we've had KopyKate for a while, i feel that KxoVid already outshines it. all it's really lacking is videos to watch.
for the time being it only accepts the new KxoID, so you'll want to go over to his site, set up the PeerMessage plugin, and register one.
when you upload a video, you choose which hub the data is uploaded to. all of the current hubs are structured as different categories (eg. News/Politics, Animation, Documentaries, etc). any user who clicks on one of those hubs will recieve a list of all the videos uploaded to it, which will be useful for finding new vids.
there appears to be a feature that allows you to create playlists on your channel. i don't think any other video site on ZN has this.
the design needs worked on, and there's no video thumbnails yet, although i believe @Krixano: is working on both of these things. all in all, this appears to be a worthy successor to KopyKate, and it'll be cool to watch it grow.
i just uploaded a video on KxoVid
it's 42mb, and since i'm using tor it miiiight take a bit of time for it to start downloading for you.
thanks to the good fellow who helps seed these cute anime girl pics on ZeroMe! here's the cutest girl, btw.
my favorite unresolved bug on ZN is the one that causes some of styromaniac's (and notably, ONLY styromaniac's) ZeroTalk comments to automatically be upvoted by a random selection of 4-8 users. it's as though he was hardcoded to be a real popular dude.
today is caturday so here is chen licking a popcicle
if you include a link to a known bitcoin miner in a post on any zeronet site, it will cause people's antivirus to flip out on them. the only downside is the AV will probably delete the file with all of your posts you made on that site so you're effectively muted.
if you design a zite which will not function without access to resources from the www you have entirely missed the point of a distributed network and i will probably not seed it and will probably actively discourage its use.
i've never seen an animated gif here so this is a test to see if it works
clicking links on New Zeronet Sites usually isn't a good use of one's time but every once in a while the link takes you to something good that you didn't know about.
zite idea: a zite with which users can develop and publish twine stories, and where other users can play these published stories.
the user would type up their twine story on the zite (bonus points if the stories are saved on the zite and encrypted so only the author can view and edit the story while it is still a WIP).
once they finish, they can hit "publish" to have their completed twine featured on the zite. users visiting the zite can play these twine games.
there are probably feasibility or security concerns with this since the zite is effectively hosting user submitted .html documents. there might be additional feasibility concerns if twine authors wanted their stories to have graphics or sound.
I started a ZeroUp clone. This will pretty much be for 2d erotic content. It doesn't have to be lolis, but it needs to be 2d. I've uploaded a couple h-games so far.
Right now upload capabilities are limited to a whitelist. If you want on the whitelist, just send me a message. You can reply here or ZeroMail me.
a single fucking comma, that's all my issue was. i didn't even put it there.
one of these days i will learn how important it is to read logs and look for error messages instead of trying the same thing over and over again and wondering why it doesn't work
i dont think i have any problems with that content.json file.
the reason i ask is because there is also a file called data/users/content.json, and i am experiencing problems with it.
after i clone a zite i get a content.json file that references their zite's address. naturally i would want to change it to reflect my new zite.
can anyone tell me what this is? is it a hash of the private key used to sign? a map of the stars? the key to achieving true happiness?
there are reports that pixiv has begun quietly unlisting loli works
more people should use vanity bitcoin addresses for their sites

wtf everyone and their uncle has a 0share clone now
it appears a lot of search engines were relying on the bit.surf zeronet proxy to acquire new zite listings but that proxy is no longer operational and those search engines no longer accumulate new zites. tsk tsk, depending on non-permanent, censorable resources outside of zeronet was not the way to go.
it's definitely more sensible and futureproof to pull new zites from listings such as 0list, ZeroSites, etcetera. but I suppose the downside is after you die your service will keep adding links which might violate your TOS. but is having an uncensored search engine such a bad thing?
I'm not actually sure what it takes to get listed on a few of the other search engines though, apart from directly contacting the owner, if the site is even still operational.
anyone who doesn't want to put up with my posts can block me and nobody needs to know
there is a 0gallery hub i hadn't seen before called LolirapeGallery. as its name implies it contains loli rape hmanga. i dont really like violent things but for those that do, give it a click.
its a couple months old but doesn't have many peers. no english, i'm afraid.
i checked out millchan again to see if anything has changed. it took very little time before my client downloaded a CP thumbnail (possession of child pornography) by mousing over one of the recent posts. once this file is downloaded, it is ready on your client to seed to other users (distribution of child pornography).
i visited the post in question so i could mute the user. a window popped up informing me that when i mute the user, all his files that have been downloaded will be deleted. after muting the user, i confirmed that the thumbnails were NOT deleted, despite what i had been told, and they had to be tracked down and removed on my filesystem manually.
i have no way of knowing if there are others that i missed without a full manual audit of all image files stored in millchan's subdirectories.
i am definitely not impressed. this is not a well designed system...
so, if i want to share good wholesome christian manga, should i do that on the same site or do i have to make a whole new one? it seems a number of people have my galleryhub blocked for being a porn site even though they have to deliberately opt in to see r18 galleries. although it IS my own fault for branding it as a site dedicated to r18 content...
added a doujin to my gallery hub, "Sonomama, Mitete (Just keep watching)". it's about a cute girl who likes being watched by others!
don't forget to make an announcement post on:
being blocked is kind of like being noticed by your senpai. now that blocklists are popular again i can't wait to be put on one.
everyone's afraid of accidentally seeing pictures of naked people, but i've seen pictures of naked people on the internet my entire life and i just scroll past it
that feel when you're pretty sure you're unwanted human refuse with no place or purpose in this world, but you decide to check your messages before passing out in bed anyway, and a notable figure from a well respected institution who you messaged once years ago (who has no rhyme or reason to remember you) is asking you for a little help with a project their department is putting together that could help save or improve people's lives, and now you're not really sure what to think
on one hand it feels good to be wanted, but on the other hand it doesn't feel good to have your world views challenged
when someone tells me im unfit to be a dad
i dont know what i am supposed to do when my chest starts burning really hot and i feel this intense need to have some kind of human intimacy in my life. usually i just wait it out and then it passes and is replaced with intense feelings about ending my existence. i also just wait that out because i dont know what else to do. but i dont really think there's anything to be done about either one except carrying the second one out.
are there any ZeroMail clones that provide notifications in ZeroHello when you receive mail? perhaps this might be something @nofish would have interest in implementing?
i want to upload music but i don't know what "genre" it is. a lot of music i listen to doesn't adhere to a strict genre, and i don't listen to music on a per-genre basis so i feel incredibly ignorant when it comes to describing or identifying genres of music. i can just go by the metadata but half of the time i think it's wrong or at least misleading.
if zite owners want to be notified of bad things being uploaded to their site, they might consider putting their contact info on the front page or otherwise making it apparently who the owner is...
some days i feel the urge to grace zerome with copious amounts of lewd 2d imagery but i can never bring myself to do it so here's a cute girl in a yukata eating cotton candy on a stick
ZeroVoat got some kind of an update. It now loads a script from some place called "ckeditor.com," but I don't come to ZeroNet to access ".com" websites so I will probably disregard ZeroVoat entirely now.
added Gomennasai's "That Girl is an Urban Legend" to nekololi's GalleryHub.
come for the hentai, stay for the great story, and forget you were supposed to fap to it. it's over 200mb so if you're tight on hdd space be warned.
i've added Quzilax - Love is Blind to my GalleryHub
