Site Update Log

2019-08-22

- The "cost" for downloading the original image for a page with the "download original" link when the image limit reset function is used has been adjusted to match the cost of including it in an archive. This is because people were using scripts to download full galleries with this link instead of using the archivers, which causes a lot more strain on the servers.


2019-08-06

- We have switched in a new primary web cluster for parts of the site. This was a planned upgrade, but should alleviate the high number of 503s during peak load seen the last few days. Note that this was somewhat of a rushed implementation due to that fact, so let me know if you spot any weirdness.


2019-05-27

- Thumbnails are now loaded in a different way when managing galleries, which should prevent any issues where they weren't loading.


2019-04-13

- Untaggable tags that aren't slaved to a taggable master are no longer suggested in the tag watching interface.


2019-04-04

- Fixed the "next page" arrow in favorite list views.

- A software update had some seemingly undocumented changes to default timeout values which may have caused uploads to fail excessively. These should now be set to saner values. Let me know if you still experience errors with this.


2019-04-03

New UI revision update:

- Added a "Minimal+" display mode that includes flagged tags.

- Redesigned the way preview thumbnails work in Compact and Minimal display mode. Rating, posted date, category and page count are now displayed below the thumbnail, similar to the new Thumbnail mode. (The way it was done previously would hide some information; moving the popup elsewhere as some have suggested would just hide some other information, like parts of the title.)

- If a requested page from a search result has no unfiltered gallery matches within the allowed range span, it will now indicate this specifically instead of giving the generic "No hits found" error message.

- Having a keyword match too many tags no longer fails the search entirely, but rather skips tag searching for that keyword.

- Switched from a custom onclick handler to HTML5-supported nesting of divs inside anchor tags for list views. This should fix various interaction issues.

- Flagged tags and favorite notes in thumbnail mode was moved to between the thumbnail and information pane, and the latter should now actually always be fixed at the bottom. Let me know if this is better or worse.

- Added a "Viewport Override" setting to My Settings that allows you to override whatever scaling your mobile device happens to apply to the site. Setting it to a low value (like 740) makes elements as large as possible. Setting it to a high value (like 1400) gives you the max number of columns per row in thumbnail mode at 100% scaling. (While the site will provide the override header regardless of what you browse the site with, only mobile browsers will use it.)

- Corrected some lingering pagination issues where an extra (empty) page might be added when filtering was involved.

- Fixed weird flexbox behavior when selecting favorite galleries in thumbnail mode.

- Fixed broken layout in Compact/Minimal modes with narrow screens when ads are enabled.

- Fixed an issue where spaces in usernames were replaced with + in some contexts.

- Fixed some vertical alignment issues in list and compact mode, especially when favorite notes were involved.

- Added two data attributes "data-new" and "data-expunged" on the gallery list table rows/divs for custom styling purposes.

- Various minor layout tweaks and fixes.


2019-03-23

- Rating is now a hybrid search to avoid few results per page when searching 5+ ratings.

- Added an additional check to prevent stale gallery list caching issues.


2019-03-21

- Gallery tagging actions will now flush the gallery's listing cache, which should make tags show up and become available for filtering immediately.

- Removed a CSS rule that prevented certain touch actions (including hold to open in new tab) on Webkit (iOS/iPhone/iPad).


2019-03-20

- Added a thumbnail scaling option under My Settings. This can be used to scale thumbnails on the Thumbnail and Extended gallery views between 75% and 150%.

- Toned down some of the category button colors on dark backgrounds.

- Gallery info now lines up per row in thumbnail mode.

- Minor CSS layout tweaks.

- Fixed an issue that prevented new users from creating BCH addresses since yesterday's update.

- Switched over to cashaddr for BCH. If you have an old wallet that does not support it yet, you can use this tool to convert the new wallet address to the old format. Old addresses will still be credited.

- Fixed a broken accessibility rule.

Thanks to hzqr and various anons for some of the CSS improvements.


2019-03-19

- Large feature/UI update. Full patch notes here.


2018-07-31

- Autotagger will now place p:original on doujinshi galleries that do not have any parody or character tags.


2018-03-06

- H@H schedules can now only be used to set a lower max throttle speed. If you were previously using it to change the hourly bandwidth limit, please update your schedule to use the throttle instead. For older schedules, the limit will still be respected for the next week or so.


2018-02-19

- Corrected some buggy behavior when editing gallery comments, as well as some buggy interaction with posting and editing comments.


2018-02-17

- Due to a large increase in the "Asia peak" over the last few months, we've had to re-enable the peak image limiter. This will reduce the image load quota for the Asia region between 1430 and 1830 UTC. People with any donation star or any of the "more pages" perks will not see a change.


2018-02-10

- Added limited sessionless settings support, which restores the ability to switch to thumbnail mode without being logged in, as well as toggling H@H on lofi.


2018-02-09

- Server-side profiles and profile switching was added. Details here.


2018-01-23

- Corrected a very rare issue where some archiver links would not work correctly.


2018-01-01

- Free archiver quotas were changed from being displayed in MB/day to GB/week, since they have been on a one-week sliding window for some time.

- The star quotas were increased by a factor of 10/7 (about 42%) across the board, solely to make the numbers prettier.

Update: The maintenance has been completed, and everything should be back up.

----

On January 20th (tomorrow as of this writing), starting at around 08:00 UTC, various things will be shut down for maintenance in order to switch over to a new set of database servers. The downtime for most things is expected to be fairly short, but as this is fairly complex, I'm setting a two hour maintenance window in case it hits any snags.

The forums, HV, and various gallery functionality will be unavailable during the switchover.

Galleries itself should remain partially available in read-only mode, and the tracker as well as the wiki should not be affected.

Gallery uploading will be disabled about half an hour before the actual maintenance, and if any uploads are still pending when the maintenance starts, they will be aborted.

2021-01-12

- The bitcoin nodes (both BTC and BCH) have been switched over to new servers. As part of this, wallet addresses created before May 2020 are no longer monitored, so if you accidentally reuse them, you will have to contact me. (The wallet address displayed on the donation page will always be current and valid.)

Additionally, the following people were boosted one or more ranks due to MVP Nominations. This mechanism was first introduced in 2019, where select staffers have been able to nominate people who contribute in ways outside of what can be measured by the toplists. Each nomination adds 1 point. People who were nominated but already qualified for the top one are not listed, and any excess points are not added.

As is customary in E-Hentai tradition, we always hand out a little something to our loyal members and contributors this time of year. Everyone who has reached the Member status on the forums should now have received a few trinkets of appreciation, namely:

50 Hath
1x Annoying Gun (unique trophy)
3x Stocking Stuffers (trophy)

In a repeat from the last twelve years, everyone who makes a post in this thread can also participate in the E-Hentai Yuletide Lottery. To participate, make a post in this thread containing the phrase YOU'RE BREATHTAKING somewhere in your post.

Make sure to enter before 23:59:59 (Midnight) UTC, December 31st.

As usual, The Yuletide Lottery Drawings will be done by the PHP Mersenne-Twister Random Number Generator. The winner will be announced on the 1st of January.

And to everyone, have a Happy Holidays, a Merry Christmas, a Festive Festivus, or a wonderful whatever other winter celebration you happen to observe, unless Covid cancelled it, in which case, welcome to the club I guess.

As many of you know - and I have received a LOT of questions about it - Maximum_Joe, one of our most senior staffers, has been AWOL since this summer. Internet relations being what they are, we hadn't able to contact him to confirm if he was okay or whether he was coming back or not. Of course, these things happen on a site that's been around since 1999 (originally) or 2005 (this incarnation) - people leave for various personal real-life reasons all the time, only to suddenly come back years later going "oh hey this place is still here".

Unfortunately, that isn't happening this time. I have just received word from Joe's brother that he has passed away, and that he wanted us to know.

According to him, it doesn't seem to be any foul play, nor was there any proof he did it himself. I don't have any further details.

Joe has been a member of this site for almost a decade, and while he was not the oldest active staff member, he was arguably the most senior in terms of activity and contributions. The countless hours he has devoted to everything from tagging to gallery cleanup to forum moderation to wiki editing, as well as generally managing and directing a lot of the minute details about those things, have been much appreciated by those who have been paying attention.

It is a big hole to fill, and he will be sorely missed, both personally as a friend, and as a staff member for this site.

We will be migrating various frontend services to a set of shiny new servers* over the next several days. This post will be updated as the various stuff is moved.

If you encounter any new issues after the moves, please post about it here.


2020-11-11

- Thumbnails and static content has been (mostly) migrated.

The primary thumbnail servers now have a lot more capacity and all storage is now local, which means they no longer have to fetch any content from backend servers. This simplifies things a lot, and also improves performance.

Full IPv6 support has also been added for this.


2020-11-12

- Redirected all the remaining thumbnail server dependencies.

- Restored failover functionality for the bits that haven't had it since last summer.


2020-11-16

- The RPC/API frontends and failovers have been swapped over. (These are used for AJAX/inline loading requests.)


2020-11-17

- The main EH frontends and failovers have been swapped over.

This completes the migration from the old frontends, but there are still a couple of other services (archiving and the tracker) that will be moved.


2020-11-19

- The new archive servers have gone live.

The new archivers have both HTTPS and IPv6 support, and also have an order of a magnitude more bandwidth available.

Note that previously generated archives will still be served from the old servers for some time.

(While the available bandwidth is much larger, it is also shared with the rest of the frontend services in the new setup, so we may add a restriction that free downloads are not available around the peak traffic hours (at least during weekends) - this is however not currently active.)


2020-11-23

- The new tracker servers are now live.

The new trackers also add IPv6 support both on the network as well as on the tracker software itself, and should (hopefully) comply with the spec in BEP7.

(Update: There were some issues with stats gathering after the update due to some changes in default behavior in new versions of underlying software, this should be fixed now.)

This completes the deployment of the new frontends, at least for now.


2020-11-29

- The old archiver servers have now been fully phased out.


* For the technically minded, there are four new physical servers that run 12 VMs each, with the following specs:

Dual Xeon Gold 5118
192 GB RAM
6 TB SSD storage
36TB HDD storage
10 Gbps uplinks

We have received a head's up from Let’s Encrypt about an upcoming compatibility issue that will affect and possibly prevent visitors using older versions of Android from loading images through H@H after January 2021.

Starting January 11, 2021, Let’s Encrypt will be changing their certificates in such a way that Android users running versions 7.1 and earlier will encounter a warning when they try to visit a site using a TLS certificate from Let’s Encrypt. Simply, this is because those older versions of Android have not been updated since 2016 and do not trust the root certificate that Let’s Encrypt will begin using beginning January 11, 2021. The sites will still be HTTPS, despite the warning, as the certificates are trusted by every major browser.

If you wish to view galleries on older versions of Android after this date, you will likely need to download a browser with a separate updated cert store, such as the the Firefox Mobile Browser.

Note that we will not be making any changes on our end to maintain compatibility with older versions of Android.

Update: Apparently they found a workaround for this, so it will still work for the time being.

This is specifically about Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Bitcoin (BTC) is not affected.

Roughly one week from now, next Sunday on 2020-11-15 at around 1200 UTC, the BCH network will undergo a network upgrade ("hard fork"). Long story short, the upgrade is contentious and may or may not cause a permanent split between what used to be the most prevalent node software (Bitcoin ABC) and the other major node implementations like Bitcoin Cash Node (BCHN) and Bitcoin Unlimited. The reason for this is that the former is trying to use its established position to impose a "miner tax" (IFP) on the network, which will be enforced only by that particular node software, while the other implementations will not care if it is paid or not. As such, a permanent fork will occur unless a majority of miners agree to pay the tax regardless of what node they are running.

We will be following the longest valid chain, as defined by BCHN. If the majority hashrate rejects the IFP and there is a viable minority fork, meaning a separate "ABC Coin" is created, this will not be supported. This means that similar to BSV, as it lacks replay protection, it will not be accepted, credited or refunded neither automatically nor manually, no exceptions. As such, please take care when making BCH donations after that time.

Due to the consequent reorg risk, on the morning of November 15th, BCH will be changed to require 100 confirmations until further notice. We may also suspend BCH spending if trading is halted on the exchanges we use to fetch price data. As such, we recommend that you finish sending any transactions and spend any existing balance before this time.


2020-11-15

- As previously announced, the number of required confirmations for BCH has been temporarily increased to 100.

Update: The fork did take place, but seems stable, as the BCHN side has almost the entirety of the hashrate. The confirmation requirement was therefore dropped to 10.


2020-11-19

- The number of required confirmations was reduced back to two, and everything is considered "back to normal".
