Data stored on the server

About server storage

Data is stored in an SQLite3 database. The database schema is available on GitHub.

The data is stored on the same server that serves web requests. The server is located in Sydney, Australia.

Data you publish for public viewing

Data that you directly provide to the website for the purposes of publishing may be stored permanently and copies may be sent to anyone or anything that requests it. This data will only be stored when you click the button to submit it, it will never be collected or stored automatically.

Here is a list of all data that falls into this category:

  • a paste, viewable on the pastes section
  • an image, viewable on the images section
  • a link to an external site, viewable on the links section
  • a list of defeated bosses in Hollow Knight Godmaster, viewable on the Godmaster section
  • a bingo card, viewable on the Egg Central section, made up of:
    • the title you provide
    • the link to its image
    • its tags
    • the locations of its clickable tiles

Other data you personally provide

Data that you provide to the website for the purpose of the website's operation may be stored permanently. This data will not be intentionally shared with anyone or anything.

Here is a list of all data that falls into this category:

  • details about your account:
    • its username
    • a hash of its password
    • a randomly-generated salt for the password
    • a list of tokens used by your browser to stay logged in between visits
  • a list of account tokens, used to stay logged in to this website between visits
  • a list of channel subscriptions on CloudTube

Data silently collected

When you request any resource from this website (for example, a page, a font, an image, or an API endpoint) the requested URL (without query string parameters), current time, and the internal method used to handle the request is logged to the console. The console is limited to 1000 lines, and data sent there is never written to disk. The console is erased whenever the server machine restarts.

Sample console output:

[ ] [095800] Using file directly for /fonts/bariol.ttf (read)
[ ] [095802] Using routeHandler /api/bingo/([0-9]+) to respond to /api/bingo/17
[ ] [100031] Using pageHandler /cloudtube/subscriptions (cloudtube/subscriptions.html) to respond to /cloudtube/subscriptions
[ ] [100031] HitAcc: 8 items updated in Hits
[ ] [100031] HitAcc: 1 items updated in DomainHits
[!] [100032] Couldn't handle request for /apple-touch-icon-120x120-precomposed.png

As well as being logged to console, the requested URL (without query string) is stored in the site's database and its hit count is incremented by one. The database table only stores the number of hits each resource has received. No information about individual requests is stored here, not even the time at which a request was made. This accumulated hit count is stored forever. You can see the first few rows of this database table here: /api/hits

A similar database table holds the number of hits each domain has received. Here is a static selection of rows from the table:


This website does not store visitor user-agent strings or IP addresses and does not use fingerprinting, advertisements, or tracking of any form.
