POST FORMATTING
Bus Stop uses an extended version of WakabaMark markup code for post formatting.
The basic features are as follows:
  • Surround text with * or _ to make it italic. _Like this_ or *like this*.
  • Surround text with ** or __ to make it bold.
  • Surround text with %% to make a spoiler
  • Make an unordered HTML list by beginning each line with *, or -. You can add line breaks in list entries by breaking the line and indenting the next line with one or more spaces.
  • Make ordered HTML lists by beginning the first line with "1."
  • Make quote sections by beginning each line with ">". Highlighting text and then clicking the post number will quote the selected text.
  • Make code sections by indenting each line by four spaces or one tab. Code sections get shown in a monospaced font, and are not otherwise formatted.
  • Make external links by just typing the URL you want to link to. Post references like >>0 can be created by clicking the post's number and are automatically turned into links. You can link posts from other boards like this >>>/test/#0. The first youtube link in the post gets embedded, unless the post has a file attachment.
If you want to make a large post with complex formatting you can test if everything looks right here.

Please fill the subject field with clearly defined topic when it's appropriate. It not only allows to browse this site like a regular image board by filtering the posts with the same subject, but also serves another purpose. Subjects have a longer lifetime than posts, it means that even when subject's thread is empty, it stays in the list for several days since the last post. In case this board is empty, this should help a new user or a person who hasn't visited the site for a long time to understand what kind of things were being discussed recently.

SJIS art can be displayed without any special formatting, as required proportional font is used on Bus Stop by default.
FILE UPLOAD
Bus Stop supports uploading of the following file types:
  • Images: jpg, png, gif.
  • Video: mp4, webm.
  • Audio: mp3
The maximum file size is 16MB.
EXIF data is stripped out from the images automatically.
OPTIONS
The board's look can be customized from the options menu, which is accessible by clicking [+] in the bottom right corner of the sidebar. Available options are as follows:
  • [theme]: switches the visual style of the site.
  • [Mona]: enables the Mona font. If your browser has problems with rendering it, turn it off to use a system font.
  • [⟳]: enables auto reloading of the page each 90 seconds.
  • [?]: controls visibility of the info post.
Options are stored in your browser's cookies, be sure to enable them, if you want to save your settings.
MISC
SUPPORTED BROWSERS
Bus Stop is designed for desktop platforms and was tested on recent versions of all major browsers.
Mobile platforms aren't officially supported, which means that submitted bugs that don't happen on the desktop will be ignored.
Luckily, Bus Stop works fine in webkit-based mobile browsers like Chrome. Mozilla browsers on mobile platforms have major problems with this board's layout, that currently aren't planned to be fixed.

CONTACT

Use this mail box, if you need to get a reply from Bus Stop's maintainer, although there is no guarantee, that it will be possible. If you only want to share some idea or suggest something, it will be better if you simply make a post on the board.

Good day, and welcome to Bus Stop - a small talk message board. Each post remains on the site for only a day, after which, it disappears. Registration is not required, and small media files can be uploaded along with each post.

If you find this place empty, it doesn't necessarily mean that it's completely abandoned. Feel free to make a post to start a discussion, perhaps someone will see it and reply!

Bus Stop is intended to be a stress free environment for talking with strangers. Try to keep a relaxed demeanor when posting, please don't say or upload anything that might ruin the other person's day.
I hope we meet again.

I got into privacy a few years ago, but over time I slipped out of all the "best practices" because they were just nuisances to others. I tried using the private messaging protocols like tox and signal, but I found almost no one used or wanted to use them. I encrypted my own mail on my server, but there was never any use for my PGP key in the actual messages because it's strictly for enthusiasts. I hosted my own email server, but it started dropping messages and I was kinda tired of needing to repeat my address to people because they were shocked out of their stupor because it wasn't simply @gmail.com and needed to actually start listening to get it right.

I did set up a home server, though, and I still use it daily. I have a few HDDs for local cloud storage (though anything important also gets uploaded to dropbox) between all devices, and I have Plex and Calibre running. so I can access my books and videos anywhere.

To be honest, your data is probably more protected.

I think your description of the real state of things is spot on, although to me it's more like a hobby rather than ideology and I'm more interested in trying small scale alternatives and supporting decentralization rather than encrypting everything.

Thanks, I didn't know about its server. I don't like video streaming so I'm interested in some other things besides web hosting and dropbox replacement you can use a private server for and building a personal library that is always available online sounds interesting.

That's a lot, I only have 2 days left, and I'm going to try using them to skip the office party in case we have one this year.
