Site status update: https://bbw-chan.nl/gen/res/3663.html | Please split MAB uploads to less than 2GB: it's difficult for the machine spirit to archive content when restricted to 'free' bandwidth.

UPDATE 6/21: mining requirement has been removed.

See a link you want but it's expired? Check the array! Most content posted to the board gets saved to the array so it's available after it expires from MAB. People don't take kindly to asking for re-ups of files that are available on the array. For those not familiar with IRC, it's quite simple. Use the web client link under the news page link on the sidebar, choose a nickname (or use the default generated one), enter #FODarray as the channel name, then connect. Type FODHELP for a detailed explanation of all the commands available. No !, /, or # prefixes are required for any commands. You may post any issues or comments about the array here. Here's a visual guide to using the array, if you need a little more explanation: http://i.imgur.com/mjx76NZ.png

The array isn't really for chatting though, wanna chat with the community? BBW-Chan's IRC channel is #bbw-chan on irc.rizon.net.

If you don't have, and/or don't want to install a standalone IRC client, try these links:
https://kiwiirc.com
https://www.irccloud.com

If you don't know how to use IRC, try this tutorial:

At this point IRC is like still using AOL or ICQ, I get that's it's not completely self-explanatory. When you goto rizon's webchat, the only two fields you need to fill out are a nickname (feel free to just type nonsense, just don't use a short or common name, or you'll join, and instantly have your name changed by the server, this can confuse the array) and the channel fields (enter #fodarray in the channel field). You do not have to fill in the other two fields. After you've connected, the OP applies. Hope that helps. If you want to keep a permanent, only-for-you nickname once you get in, type "/msg NickServ help register" for information on how to do that.

I am aware of the issue with List B not be able to preview single files and I am working on it, however, you can still request uploads from it, and there are 00previews.zip in every folder with all the previews from the folder, so you can still get previews in bulk. When you report an issue, please be a little more specific in what exactly isn't working, what you were requesting, what you typed, etc. Just saying "it no worky" isn't very helpful for troubleshooting.

List B single previews should be working now. (except some m4v videos, my script can't preview those because of some weird ass codec issue).

How do you make a request from list B? For example FODUPLOADA/B#### pulls from list A. so does FODUPLOADA/A0958.

>>12
here's an example with FODUPLOADPAST:
1) in the #FODarray channel, enter the command FODUPLOADPAST
2) a new channel window called FODBuoy will appear in the channel tab. open it.
3) inside the FODBuoy window, you'll see that you have received a paste.ee weblink. click on the link to open the page cotaining the list of recently uploaded files.
attention: don't hesitate too long opening it, since there's a new version of the list being generated quite often. if the list doesn't open or it's empty, just start with step 1 again.

I'm acquanted and familiar with the FODarray, but I must ask: are there other arrays with different/other bbw videos? I've seen people on bbw-chan upload videos to MyAirBridge that aren't in the array, and some of my favorite bbw's aren't on either List A or B.

any updates on the array?

59d40 No.46

>>45
Not too much currently. I do have the beginnings of a complete rework, but it's nowhere near complete. The array continues to chug along, sometimes sputtering, sometimes crashing, but overall I'd say as it is, it's providing it's function quite well. That said, there are a few improvements I want to make to the current AutoHotKey script. It currently uses alot of it's processing time dynamically generating the lists, both database and past. I'm going to switch this to once a day generating these lists, and maintaining a static link. That way it can hand out the copious link requests without spending too much time thinking about it. I'm also going to improve the interaction with it, little quality of life things (like standardizing giving acknowledgement of a command vs. waiting until the command is finished for output). If you have any suggestions, let me know.

I've been steadily collecting and archiving content, but there are definitely things I miss. You guys post alot of content.

I hadn't really -planned- on this outage, but since it happened, I'm taking the time to do some real maintenance on the server like renaming files with special characters, setting scheduled reboots, better error handling, and putting in the place the beginnings of a better system. We should be back up by Sunday.

79128 No.52

>8038

Do you have any idea when the array might reopen?

f1cc9 No.53

We're back up, here's the list of changes:

Updated physical server with latest OS patches
Content has been equally split between the two lists to allow for smoother additions (about 200GB free on each list)
Buoy & Array now properly identify themselves as halfops, so you can be sure the FodArray / FodBuoy are the real deal
Buoy/Array now use vhost masking on top of VPN for dual-layer protection.
Buoy now generates expires-in-24-hours database lists once a day and on every reboot and posts them to the channel topic, no more foduploadlist as a result (this saves a ton on processing power)
Fodadd command disabled - I do not have the required time to check the logs often enough, people were just wasting time adding links to it :\
Fodhelp now sends one message with a paste.ee link instead of multiple messages rapid-fire
Foduploadpast/Fodpreviewpast now properly trim themselves, their use should not get slower the longer the array runs anymore
Preview dupe-checking will no longer look through a giant database of previews from the beginning of time, it now has a 72-hour trim like regular uploads
Removed a bunch of special charecters from files, should be less "Did not receive initial progress" errors. (Hopefully)
Restart procedure is better, and there is a hard restart everyday at 3AM CST / 1AM PST
Upload size limit of 500mb until we get more donations and to keep the queue at a brisk pace. This may be adjusted in a bit.
Lots of content from the last few weeks on the board added.
Combined preview zips have updated
Henceforth, there will be a maintenance window every Sunday at a random time if I need to bring it down to do maintenance.

I think this will be the last update to this "version" of the array.

I want to thank you for all your hard work. The Array is great, except for those pesky files over 500. I noticed too that there are a number of files with just numbers and such so you have no idea who the artist is. I think I am guilty of it, but is that due to the poster having those numbers for the vid files that uploaded? I think I know the answer and will make attempts to properly name them moving forward.

Thanks again.

I'm still working on dates, the trouble is, unless I change the file before I place it on the array (rename it, etc), it will retain it's original creation date, not the day it was added to the array. It's doable, but it's quite a bit of extra work.

Is there any way to just have the array automatically take a log of each new file added, say, in the last calendar month? The reason being that once you become a regular user of the array, its hard to know how to find new stuff amongst the thousands (thank you) of files there.

Also, an idea to increase donations: What if there were a raffle each month to donors over $5 each month? Say, you'd get $25 worth of a paid subscription/clips4sale, completely legit. If that incented more than 5 people each month to throw down, might be worth it…

Thanks for all the goods!

>>92
The issue right now is, every few months, MAB changes their site just enough (changing the tab order, changing the layout, changing what happens when you finish an upload) to screw up the bot. Then I have to take it down for a few days and re-code it to work with their new site changes. Every time this happens, I curse the current script and hate my life, because the script is a jumbled mess of spaghetti code that I've made more and more difficult to work on over the time I've been running the array. So just hold tight, it will be back up, and better.

Also, you might have noticed we experimented with different file limits over the weekend, first at 1200mb, then to 700mb, then to 1000mb. With files over 500mb, if a person makes a request, then leaves before it's finished, the script will error out because it has no one to send progress to and IRC disconnects the bot for not sending any messages for too long. It's complicated. Just bear with me.

File: 1491225155802.jpg (158.03 KB, 800x500, fanart-copy-14.jpg)

We're back up, list of changes:

Completely re-written IRC base code (previously used 2007 standards, now using 2016 standards)
Completely re-written script (redundancies removed, superfluous waits removed, GUI removed, CLI only)
Array is now event-driven (it does not waste double threads on checking for IRC messages and the queue)
Array now sends upload progress to a seperate debug channel as well as directly to the requestor. Previously, if a user requested a large upload, then quit before it was done, the array would continue trying to send upload progress to the non-connected user. Because IRC requires valid input on a regular basis, this would occasionly cause the array to be disconnected from the server. This should be resolved.
FODRANDOM can now pull from both lists, not just A.
Failures against list B (previews, reuploads, etc) should be resolved.
Size limit adjusted to 1000mb (expect 15+ minute upload times for these size files)
Array now properly accounts for the new mab condition of "Completing upload…" when it reaches 100%, and tells you estimated time remaining
Buoy now accepts commands from private messages (you do not have to type your commands in the main channel)
Admins are now recognized by hostname in addition to nickname
Buoy now properly updates it's database when it restarts
Manual refresh by admins no longer requires complete restart
Dates have arrived! These are based on last time modified, not when added to the array. I am at odds on whether to change every file as it enter the database so this reflects when it was added, not created.
Automated restart improved
Special charecters like ! and + no longer prevent uploads
Command structure loosened(both fodreup and fodreupload work, in addition to fodreprev and fodrepreview)

This is brand new code, expect bugs and crashes, but I guarantee you, it's much better now.

Rather than continuing to upload original files, let's do a little comparison:

Original Silver Rider Clip:
https://mab.to/WYbrSj7v2

Hand-braked same clip at 720p (original resolution):
https://mab.to/CJVAF7dWK

Original Carmen clip:
https://mab.to/RT7O4cjDz

Same clip 1080p handbraked:
https://mab.to/IItBIYxSp

Can you honestly tell a difference? If this is an OK conversion, I know everyone hates conversions, but I would be happy to convert the ridiculous size files so everyone can access them. I've been reluctant to do so, but let's be clear here: most of these huge videos do not have the length or detail to necessitate their massive files sizes. Plus, these converted versions are web-optimized, so you can play them as you download them (if you browser supports it). To be clear: if I do this, the original files will be deleted so there is space for new content.

>>115

Thanks for catching up. Look, I'm not trying to schnooker anyone here. Please understand I'm just one guy, with one bot, trying to serve as many people as possible. The limit is set for a technical reason. Concessions have to be made. Donations might help getting better internet, more enthusiasm for code upgrades, spending compute time handbraking, buying more storage, etc but it isn't going to magically fix the issue of files over 700mb making the queue clog up faster than a toilet after taco night. Would it make you all feel better if I replaced the block notice with just a standard "Sorry, files over 700mb are too much for the array to handle. Request a handbrake of this file." without any mention of donating? Is that what you really want? Because it seems like it is.

Honestly, everyone's 'tude about the file size limit confuses the hell out of me. Yeah, I have provided a free service for nearly 8 months 24/7, with access to thousands of dollars worth of content, but OH GOD NO SOME TYPE OF RESTRICTION BURN HIM! BURN HIM!

That shit gets old. If you think I'm being a dick about all this, don't use the service. No one forces you to eat at shitty restaurants. Same thing applies here. You don't like it, leave. You don't want to donate, don't. Simple as that. When it's free, I don't think you have ground to stand on as far as lodging complaints. If you donated and expected the limit to be removed entirely, that's also not something that's going to happen. I'm sorry if you were led to believe that.

Let's also remember that I am the site AND the array. If you donate, it will ALWAYS be spent on the site first. As people have said, so long as the site lives, that's what is important. If I'm ever faced with paying for the site or the array, the site wins every time.

x265 reduced, even smaller size, same original resolution, still web-optimized, but older netbooks probably won't have the processing power to decompress it. It doesn't look great, but the original file didn't either: extremely poor camera was used.

Not as the array is currently coded, no. The "database" is a very loose term for the lists it generates on the fly. There is not actually a database with a primary key for each file. The next version of the array may have primary keys.

Hey LtBarclay! I spent some time this weekend debugging the mab.to site and wrote a little CLI util called "mabload" allowing me to turn a link list from the array, like this:

https://mab.to/n1aOeH0Ko
https://mab.to/TJ7QVRC4D
https://mab.to/R8gOvSqCv


Into *direct* download links like these:
https://d5.myairbridge.com/packagev2/HDRLUMAB9F9T1X91/?dlid=WF0EZ70ABXDEXZYXUEA9LL
https://d3.myairbridge.com/packagev2/TMS8U9090YEU8INO/?dlid=771U4GVNFE81BHXB99KPSG
https://d3.myairbridge.com/packagev2/7I9LAHANNPC6CZGH/?dlid=4IVRBUCRUBTCKPOZZA5BTC


That way I've been taking your FODUPLOADPAST list, filtered out and copied the links from everything I wanted to have and was able to just run:
pbpaste | mabload | aria2c -x8 -s8 -i-

…and ~60 downloads queued at full 25MB/s from mab.to within one line.

I've got identical versions written in Go and Rust (just for fun).
If you or anyone else, who's technically inclined, is interested: You can choose one of the 2 languages and I'll make it public asap and if I have some sparetime left I'll even help you improve the bridge by finally replacing the AutoHotkey shit (if you still use that) with proper API calls .

Converting the clips to hev (H265) just sucks. For now.

VLC is the only player that can play them on MacOS. But VLC has (since ages) a color management problem (not just on this computer): Videos have a red cast. They look sick.

Here’s a quick comp i just made. On the left the just d/led hev compressed clip in the VLC player, on the right the original Carmen clip as it should look like. The fact that Carmen’s original isn’t properly white-balanced should be ignored here,of course.

That is YOU getting disconnected. There are multiple reasons Rizon may disconnect you. Open proxy, malware, you rotated onto an ip that was previously banned, you disconnected / reconnected too many times, you were actually banned, you tried to use a registered nick, etc etc etc. Try on your phone connected to 3G/4G: if it works there, you know your home internet IP has an issue.

Feel free to purchase the original clips if you can't handle a tiny color difference. I'm honestly surprised you took the time to post this. Converting the clips saves us a ton of space, and makes the array upload faster. It's a win win. I don't think anyone gives two craps about color balance.

It’s fully understood why you want and need to compress the videos. But why push a technology (HEVC/H.265) that is causing lots of trouble? Beginning with all the people whose hardware isn’t fast enough for HEVC. While x264 is doing the job just fine. All the tube sites are using it, and they don’t want to burn bandwidth either.

For real, this difference is just "tiny"?

…And I also have to say that I too would actually prefer recompressed x264 versions of badly encoded videos right now. Some devices (especially mobile ones) just can't handle HEVC at all.
On the other hand I'm quite fine with the current -HB versions though, especially since this is an archive and we can expect to see an huge improvement in HEVC support on all platforms in the coming ~5 years alleviating the need of another video conversion for the new format then.
Apart from that: Could you please decrease the CRF by a notch or two? There is currently a ever so slightly quality loss going on for most videos.

ae1a9 No.171

>>168
the difference is not that tiny when we have a finite amount of space and converting them regularly means close to a 80% decrease in file size.

I admit I couldn't play them at first either, but it only took a new codec for them to work.

6652e No.172

>>168
Can we find out if this is a problem with the player, the encode settings or h265 itself?

I have converted a lot of my own videos to h265 using handbrake and a quality of around 20. I haven't noticed any change in colour on windows using vlc or media player classic home cinema. And I have directly compared several times.

Another anon replied:
>>14955
It's a problem with the VLC player - it displays every video with this red shade, irrespective of the involved video codec. Maybe it’s an issue with certain GPUs (i have a Radion R9), not sure. People who have this issue usually are getting told to disable hardware acceleration (in the VLC settings), but that didn’t cure the problem for me.

Take my money elsewhere? That's fuckin' rich, acting like this is a restaurant. Oh, you're not going to pay for your free porn? What a fucking shocker! The files aren't ruined: you're ruined by your selfish, thankless attitude. It's that kind of perspective that forces me to convert files to HEVC because no one ever donates enough for me to upgrade storage space on the array. We're still limited to 2 x 1TB raid, and guess what? We're constantly almost out of storage.

>>168
Alright, let's settle this once and for all. Here's a comparison of an original 264 vs compressed 265 on windows. There is a less than 0.07% color difference. An issue on Mac? Possibly. On a modern windows computer? Nope. Note the stats on mac users of this site. You'll forgive me if I don't shed a tear for 14% of our user base getting screwed over on color balance. And that's assuming all 14% use the array (they don't). Look, I'm sorry you picked a shitty computer with a shitty operating system. That sucks for you. How about running bootcamp, or a windows VM, so you can have the best of both worlds?

>>170
If playing on mobile is a concern, then size is a concern. With files nowadays averaging almost 1gb, you could have, what, 40 videos saved to your device before it's full? Even then, what kind of 4k screen are you running where you can even tell the difference in quality on a mobile device? Still, I'll consider modifying the CRF if the size difference is minor. I'm really sorry if converting to 265 locks slow/old machines out of playing the files but, come on. This codec has been around a long time. If you can't play these files, guess what? With all the money you saved downloading from the array instead of purchasing content, maybe consider an upgrade?

As a side note, this app (android) can use either hardware or software HEVC decoding, so unless your devices is 3+ years old and limited by a dual-core processor, you should be able to easily play the files on android devices.

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.neulion.divxmobile2016

IOS? No clue, who gives a fuck. Much like desktop operating systems being ruled by windows, android is the mobile OS king. I frankly don't give a shit if people's ipads/iphones can't play these files. If you have the money for one of those devices, you have the money to own a device capable of playing HEVC files, enough said.

FYI you big mouthed little evangelist: A music producer, a DJ, a videographer or a graphics person quite likely has a differing view on operating systems/hardware. A very rational one.

Git gud. I'm using a 5K for my PC. h265 decoding on my iPhone 6+ is fine as well but not supported on my older iPad.
And you can see the difference in quality on e.g. flat surfaces where your h265 version will look slightly more soft/blurry. Do you want me to upload screens as a proof or do you want to take a look for yourself?
I'd say you should drop the CRF a bit (by maybe 2 for a start?) since those files are meant as an archive.
I'm sure you will be fine with a h265 size increase of maybe 10% since that will make sure that no quality loss is going on while still being far far smaller than the original MPEG4/h264 versions.

> Look, I'm sorry you picked a shitty computer with a shitty operating system.


I'd be careful with that attitude since a large part of the actually professional IT crowd is using exactly such machines.
An actually correct guess would be for instance that they are using nVidia GPUs. For a long time their drivers adjusted the colors of videos.
It could thus be the case that the red-ish version is actually the correct one while the gray-ish ones are due to nVidia adjusting the color space to 16-235 (from the full 0-255).

Listen… I can understand why you're angry but you don't do yourself a favor if you concentrate on the critics in a way where you take the criticism personally. Just view this as a personal hobby project and be done with it. No need to insult others. :)

Minor correction: I planned to donate the server for the array long ago, but I don't have enough time yet to figure something out that my IP adress stays hidden from you and your IRC bot (since the bot would connect to my server and control it).

Here's also a preview of the "mabload" tool I mentioned: https://mab.to/SO3O116VG

It contains precompiled binaries for Windows x64 since I guess that's what you're using. You can find the correct one in the "target/release" subfolder.
Obviously you can't trust me that I didn't put a virus in there and virustotal.com doesn't always work right.
So I included the source code as well for you to compile it for yourself if you want to.
But first and foremost it was a tool for myself so… w/e.

It's a very primitive tool for now and contains a ton of errors and unchecked corner cases (mab's API is weird). But it works. Kinda.
It reads a newline seperated list of https://mab.to/**** formatted links from stdin and prints the direct download links to stdout.
For those who don't know what that means, but do know what a terminal is: You have to pipe in newline seperated links into that program and newline seperated links will be spewed out of it which in turn can be redirected elsewhere.
Here, I'll demonstrate:

You can use it like this in PowerShell to convert a single link for instance:
echo 'https://mab.to/SO3O116VG' | .\mabload.exe

Or multiple links in a hypothetical urls.txt file (with one link on each line of text!):
cat .\urls.txt | .\mabload.exe > direct_urls.txt

Or if you have Bash for Windows and aria2 or something installed (apt install aria2) you can be the cool kid on street and do:
cat urls.txt | mabload.exe | aria2c -x8 -s8 -i-

…and be amazed how everything is downloading itself automatically.
Those "stupid" MacOS users can use the full *NIX power of course unlike those WSL clowns and don't need to fiddle around as much.

Alright, look, I'll admit I went a little off the deep end. I have an irrational hatred for Apple products. All I've ever seen are elitist pricks who assume higher price means better performance and are perfectly fine charging their mice upside down and having a dongle daisy chain hanging off their laptops.

Here's a personal experience: an executive at my company sees someone using outlook on their ipad. He gets all hot and bothered that this lady looks like she stepped right out of startrek and he's lugging around some MASSIVE, UGLY, TERRIBLE, OLD Dell E7270. So without going through the approved procurement process, he goes out, buys an ipad and a keyboard case and a mouse.

Comes back to the office, and demands we replace his laptop with it. He says he wants to hook it up to his dual monitor display and use the ipad as a third screen, and that he wants to use this sweet, buttonless mouse with it. He couldn't understand when we explained to him, sorry sir: Apple doesn't let you use mice on ipads, there's no ipad dock that exists that can utilize dual monitors, and to boot, our encryption and asset management software doesn't work on them.

Maybe, just maybe, there was a time when things "exclusive" to the IOS ecosystem were desirable, but I've always felt it's the walled-in OS alternative for people who aren't smart enough to use linux but want to be "different". There's nothing compelling about the UI, their specs, or anything anymore. I will say their phones are decent. Everything else, wtf.

It's also true I don't take criticism and complaining very well. I spend at least a third of my free time maintaining the site, archiving content, fixing code problems… and there are certainly days when I regret it. On top of that (pity party) I've had horrible debilitating back pain for 5-ish years and I am aware I'm on a hair trigger most of the time. It's just become my default behavior because the pain is 24/7 and I'm, on a good day, always moderately frustrated about it.

So there are some days that I'm desperate to see some of those "hey thanks barclay, this is really sweet" posts but all I seem to see are people with problems they want solved.

So I apologize. It's been a rough few months.

2/3 of it explains the program for people who wouldn't understand a purely technical description, so of course it's long.

I'm not sure if I can help you with writing the code for the bridge right now, since I'm really busy.
How would I contact you for that anyways? Is there anything that doesn't require me to create wasted accounts on dubious sites?
Alternatively you could also just set up a IRC bouncer finally.

>>188
Thanks! It truly only becomes useful currently if you know how to use your terminal correctly.
You should get familar with PowerShell or even better "Bash on Windows" if possible to use it in it's current state.

I plan on automating all of that away though by adding the necessary code to download the files themselves as well instead of printing out the links.
The correct choice would be for me to write a jDownloader plugin though since that would be result in a much more versatile solution.
But then again I wouldn't have any fun writing the code in Rust… Hmm…

So wait, let me just wrap my head around this. You had the wherewithal to read the explanation, understand it enough to make upload requests, but, when it came to the part where it said "enter the channel, click the lists from the topic" you thought to yourself "screw that, I'm going to TYPE OUT the database link from the explanation (since I can't copy and paste it), and use THAT link."

Nah, I'm not buying it. No one is that stupid. That's going out of your way to troll me. Bravo.

What do you mean by that? Are you implying that the image should read "the median person"?
If so it's quite correct, but still makes you sound like a smartass, since everyone already knew what was meant by the more common and preferable word "average".
The intelligence of humanity follows very closely the normal distribution though, which means that median and average are identical anyways, so uh… yeah…

If you're referring to IQ scores, that's meaningless since IQ is carefully designed to follow a normal distribution. For example, at https://magoosh.com/mat/miller-analogies-test-raw-score-percentile/ you can see how MAT raw scores are heavily adjusted to produce a normal distribution. It's similar for the other IQ tests. The point is that the claim in the image won't be true for the intuitive concept of "average intelligence".

By the way I'm just going out of my way to troll Barclay (not the guy asking for help).

looking back at this and other threads, there might be a few other factors involved. sometimes it seems, whatever you do, there's always someone trying to pull your nerves.

Take a bow son! You explained the situation well. It got to the last tether for me when someone was like "aww forh tha lawve of gawwd itsa neeeeeww boberry set, sum 1 betta go buy it we need it nowww"
Its as if the internet had ust reduced everyones common courtesy and common sense.

I have one idea that might work. As much as the arrsy is easy to use and there are some lazy people, if we could streamline it as much as we can, we might be able to attract more regular traffic, and reaching the server payment would be more… accessible, perhaps.

Some volunteers could be renaming the files and ordering them into a well organised fashion. Requests for new content could be strictly to one section of the site with lists of whats needeed without any bumpfags fucking it up.

It would be such a shame to waste so much of a good system with better potential, i just wish some idiots would remind themselves about common sense and manners, ffs.

Prob very off-topic but I'm just getting into this programming lark and was wondering… how is the array built? I assume there's a database and something that takes messages as inputs but I'm very curious as to the architecture behind it. Really cool build for a real world problem and such a shame that I can't show it off. If you're out there, you're much appreciated mate.

Why is it that the stuffer31 videos aren't sorted by model? I've uploaded some of them to mab myself, and I know I labeled them when I did so.
Also, I found a ChubbyGirlVideo video in the stuffer31 folder, how would I report something being in the wrong folder?

I'll admit I haven't been completely forthcoming with information about the array shutting down. I am very torn about what to do with it. I'll try and get my thoughts together soon.

>>217
Once I make the current code a little more pretty/resilient, it will be released. Until then, the array runs on AutoIT with an IRC UDF back-end. There are plenty of examples, and although AutoIt will get you laughed out of programmer circles, for projects like this, it's ideal for it's simplicity.

>>218
100% honest here: most of the stuffer31 chicks are too small for my taste and I have no idea who they are because their names aren't on the file or in the video itself. If someone wanted to go through them all and correctly rename them, I'll certainly go back and get them sorted.

394fe No.220

>>219
Ok, I'll see if I can sort through them sometime. In the meantime, the videos in line B6053, B6054, B6055, B6056, B6057, B6058, as well as B6061 are not Stuffer31 videos but from ChubbyGirlVideos. Except for B6061, most are in the ChubbyGirlVideos folder already, so you have some duplicates. Idk if it's more convenient for you if I use line numbers or names, so I'll say that the videos are titled video 59.mp4, video 69.mp4, etc., and Stuffer31\WIN_20151030_13_56_41_Pro.mp4.mp4

More than likely, yes. i may work out some kind of system where the array will automatically come online if the balance of it's mining pool goes over a certain amount and shuts off when the balance is low, we'll see.

how much would you need to not shut it down

f1746 No.231

>>230
Here''s the deal. I always envisioned that if the array was popular enough, enough individual users would come together and support it enough to pay its monthly costs. As we've seen through the failure of the faucet system, the link shortener system, and the mining system, this isn't the case: the best we can hope for is direct donations from a very small amount of dedicated / supportive users.

With that said, there's also the issue of me kind of wanting the array to die. It takes alot of effort to run, and to be frank, its ruined the chan. Threads get shitted up with people arguing about asking for reups, and less content is posted overall as people get their fix not from new posts, but from interacting with the array.

So here's an unlikely to happen compromise I'll agree to. If we receive 1 years worth of operating costs for the array ($20 x 12 = $240 or 0.1 bitcoin) by the array's 1 year birthday (7/25), I will pledge to keep the array online for another year, 24/7 like it has been. These donations MUST come with a message stating the donation is SPECIFICALLY for the array, not the site. So either include it in the transaction itself, or post to this thread with your donation amount and state it was for the array.

If we don't make it I will still bring the array online periodically for weekends / holidays / etc, but it will no longer be 24/7.

0787f No.232

No argument here, although I'm curious: why didn't the mining system work?

3622e No.233

I kind of like the holiday or occasional weekend/etc idea. It'll probably get clogged by a bit of a backlog, but I mostly only ever used the array rarely to grab a stash of models I liked. Having it up 24/7 seems pretty niche.

d3a06 No.234

>>233
Agree with this. An alternative would be to make mining required during all other times that aren't week-end/holidays but that'd only work if there's enough revenue generated by the small amount of people who would comply with the mine to use requirement to make it cost effective

8c10b No.235

>>232
Lots of reasons I think. One being the wide spectrum of devices being used on the array, the other being the array was already technical, when you add something like mining on top most people just throw up their hands.

Thread has been de-stickied and saged, and the array is offline until further notice.
