I see there're a chat and a chat thread. Are they the same thing?
I don't like this user interface.
Try another one. There are three of them. If you prefer less white space between ui
elements, you can enable the compact theme in the settings.
No if you use /ui3/
How do I attach an image?
Upload it to imgur.com
, then right-click the image and select
"Copy Image Link" to get

Also images from twitter are supported and thumbnails from some video hosting sites (check the

All of my settings are lost after restarting Tor Browser. It's inconvenient to restore
them manually every time. Is there an easier way?

This board is full of shitposts. Will you clean it?
No unless they break the rules. It's hard to define objectively what "shitpost" means.
You can set your own filters in the settings to hide posts you don't like
(it's not supported in /ui3/
however you can write your
own userscript and implement it.) E.g. you can hide all posts that include some offensive words.
To write your own filters, you have to know (at least to some degree) how to write regular
expressions. Also, if you're the OP of a thread, you can hide any post in it.
Can I delete/edit my post? Can I delete my thread?
I don't know anything about programming, can I discuss something else here?
Yes unless it breaks the rules.
I'd like to write my own client. Is there any api?
Will you drop any user interface in the future?
No, all of them will continue to exist. However, /ui2/
most likely won't
get new features.
Which software this board uses?
It uses its own software (GPLv3 License.) Backend is written in Rust. Frontend is written
How old is this board/chat?
It exists since 2015-03-13.
Will it be suddenly closed like many other boards?
No, I don't have any plans to close it and I'm not going to suddenly change my mind.
Even if there's no any activity for a very long period of time, I won't close it.
