Eurochan.org is an anonymous discussion forum in image-board style with focus on Continental Europe and the UK. Our goal is to give people space for self-expression and self-determination without revealing their identity. This means that our users do not need to register an account before participating in the community and we do not collect personal information in connection with these activities. However, posters can append a name to their posts, with a unique hash identifier known as a tripcode. The conversation on eurochan.org is therefore a great opportunity to learn a foreign language and culture in a fun and informal environment. So feel free to jump right in and start participating!
Global rules apply to all boards unless otherwise noted.
Remember: The use of eurochan.org is a privilege, not a right. The eurochan.org moderation team reserves the right to revoke access and remove content for any reason without notice.
-How do I start posting?
You start by choosing a board to post in. The board /b/-random is the usual starting point. After choosing a board, you can either post or comment on a post.
-Why e.g. German-board has shorthand address /de and Kosovo-board /xk?
This is not a random choice or a fantasy name. The board paths are named according to the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2. For more information, see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ISO_3166-1_alpha-2
-Do I have to post an image to start a thread/topic?
To start a new thread/topic, you must post an image. When replying to a thread, no attachment is required.
-How can I find an image to start a thread?
Anywhere on the internet, it can be from your camera or images you find online via an image search (like google). Just find an image that is related to your topic as much as possible. If you are not able to, note that the image is not related (i.e. Picture unrelated).
-What is sage?
"Sage" comes from the Japanese verb sageru (下げる) which means "to lower". Using sage allows a user to reply to a topic without bumping it to the top. A user would sage a topic when he or she doesn't like what was posted, so it then adds to the amount of posts the topic has, allowing it to be pruned from the board more quickly without bumping the topic back to the first page of the board. To sage a thread, simply enter "sage" in the options field.
-Why won’t my thread bump?
Depending on the board all threads have a set bump limit, and when this limit is reached a thread will no longer bump to the top of the board. This ensures that new content is fresh, ongoing and encourages people to continue ongoing threads that may be deleted by creating a new thread and redirecting people to another thread.
-What is a Meme?
Memes can be idioms, simple words, image macros, simple pictures, catchphrases, in some cases personifications (like i.e. OS-tan's). Some memes are site-wide and can be used in all boards/cases/specifications, others are specific to each board.
-What is a tripcode?
A tripcode is a way of authentication that does not require registration. Technically, a tripcode is the hashed result of a password that allows one's identity to be recognized without storing data on the server. We use the following schema for our implementation of the tripcode-login: trip-name#trip-password. After post submission the trip-name part will be temporary stored as a plain text, and the trip-password part is first hashed with the SHA-2 algorithm and then translated into base62 representation with Fisher–Yates shuffle plus secret crypto-salt. After that action, the result of password translation will be reduced into 10 characters string and merged with trip-name part to somewhat like trip-name!2GckUrubFg and saved into DB as plain text. The name-part of a tripcode-login can be between 1 and 30 alphanumeric characters long. The password-part must be between 10 and 100 characters long, i.e: tripman#pass$3ZsnFYtjC5. Important note: the same password will always hash to the same result, be sure that your password is unique and is not already taken by another user. A human friendly password shorter than 20 characters is generally not suitable for this form of authentication! What is Hash Function? What is SHA-2? What is base62? What is Fisher–Yates shuffle? What is Crypto-Salt?
Let your creativity go wild. Make informative, creative, even funny replies and topics. The beauty of imageboards is that it’s what YOU make of it. Imageboards are communites where corrobation, contribution and nameless expression thrive.
