Welcome to the latest Tox Thread.
We're seeing exciting developments in the field of Tox recently. Ranging from Stqism's work on the Muslim Messenger variant of Tox to NotSecure's efforts in creating uTox, a portable and lightweight Tox client that needs no toolkit.
As well as that, we've seen horror over the refusal of Irungentoo to accept certain patches into the uTox tree that alter gendered wording.
But there's always good and always bad news. Tox is going places!
Daily reminder that Tox can't even deal with their SJW problem.
Holy fuck. Is that the official Tox account?
Should not have fucking done that. You know that Tox is a big project, and this shit will get Tox bad PR for years.
What a fuckup. Whoever tweeted that from the official Tox twitter account needs to be kicked out.
I got my RouletteBot to work more consistently.
Probably still a few problems, but it seems to be email@example.com
Add the bot, message it your Tox ID, make a friend. Maybe.

Good job Tox. You now have a huge target on your back that you are never going to get rid of.
If Muslims want to make a better name for themselves they need to do it on their own merits, not piggy back riding on the merits of others.
Yeah, I fucked it up somehow.
The way I got it to work was by removinglibraries.append("toxav")
from PyTox's setup.py and rebuilding and instaling.
What if this shitstorm about "he" or whatever is just from an NSA employee shiptosting just to turn down Tox ?
It's bad enough you made a NSA honeypot to shill to Muslims but advocating troll censorship on /g is pretty queer tier.
Where is the big warning on your site that indicates this is an unaudited, non-peer reviewed implementation of NaCl and that caution should be exercised by anybody using it.
Libsodium is peer reviewed and audited. It's open source, so anyone can see what goes into it.
We won't put up any warnings. Tox is designed for use by everyone, not expert cryptologists.
Ugh. You will regret doing these things when you are judged before Allah, and believe me, you will be judged.
>when you are judged before Allah, and believe me, you will be judged.
Islam does not allow rape nor marriage of prepubescent children.
Muhammad did marry Aisha when she was 6. This was the custom at that time in Arabia. He waited till she was 9 before he had relations with her, as was acceptable at the time.
You westerners sure do love forcing your moral standards on the rest of the world! Unfortunately back in the 1800s, the age of consent in Delaware was 7, and nonexistent in many other countries. So you'll just have to deal with your own history before criticising us.
BTW, people in Arabia hit puberty earlier in those days, too.
Yes, but your software is not. I realize NaCl is trusted, but there are a thousand other 'gotchas' you have to know about even when using a trusted crypto library. I suggest you complete the Matasano Crypto Challenges.
Also trolling as a fundamentalist Muslim makes us believe you are a federal agent shill.
It's too early for us to go auditing Tox. We'd just have to do it again when we hit Beta and Release. We'll wait till we're ready for a release before auditing.
Until then, well, using Tox is at your own risk, but we're quite confident it'll be fine.
he's not asking for an audit
>Where is the big warning on your site that indicates this is an unaudited, non-peer reviewed implementation of NaCl and that caution should be exercised by anybody using it.
Then put a big warning like cryptocat does until you can be 100% confident. You'll look like a retard if Matthew D Green comes along and breaks your shit or the Syrian government arrests people using 'Muslim Messenger'.
"Cryptocat is not a magic bullet. Even though Cryptocat provides useful encryption, you should never trust any piece of software with your life, and Cryptocat is no exception."
Not putting a warning makes you look like federal authorities
I am sure he is the op of this thread, see how he did not post in the other one and when this created he started posting?
He should fuck off with this mudslime sjw shit
I do know C, though I'm not a programmer/code monkey.
If you look on github, you'll see I'm a top Tox contributor and I maintain the Tox Infrastructure including the CDN and Tox Open Internet Software Foundation
Tox needs stickers.
If you aren't familiar with them, they're a feature of Facebook and some other sites and apps. They're inline pictures, usually cartoon faces (now sometimes characters), expressing various emotions or doing various activities.
Stickers are different from emoticons. With emoticons, you are bound to the unicode characters. Stickers are a deliberate step away from that. They're a separate thing, you have much more freedom. If you don't have a Facebook account, use someone else's and look at the stickers to get an idea of what I mean.
Stickers should have their own rules, like /me messages. A sticker should appear inline at a consistent size, and it would be cool if users could right click and add a new sticker to their collection. Stickers would be sent by clicking on the emoticon button, and selecting a different tab from the popup menu (again, look at Facebook's chat).
I think this would put Tox far ahead of the curve in current messengers, as opposed to just keeping up. Skype doesn't have stickers yet. But they are very very popular wherever they're implemented.
Facebook has a sticker market, where users can try free sticker packs and be encouraged to buy others. This is only feasible because of Facebook's restrictive nature. I think an open sticker ecosystem would be a flower bed for the creativity of the users, and would definitely be a big plus over Facebook's sticker implementation, which is the most well-known right now.
Something to think about. Keep up the incredible work, guys.
That reminds me of MSN Messenger a bit.
I think it's a pretty cool idea and I'll consult with the rest of the team on it. It might just make it into the Single Tox Standard's next release if we're lucky!
This is Tox, The Messenger for Everyone, not Tox, The Messenger For My Sekrit Autism Club XDD NOGIRLSALLOWED
Stupid faggot. Bitches. Love. Stickers.
>go back to facebook/skype
We're trying to draw people away from those messengers, fuckface.
Your users are going to get fucked because they will mistakenly believe this will 'respect their online privacy' when you have no proof that it actually does. They don't have to be "experts" to read a warning that this software shouldn't be used for activism or journalism in oppressive regimes like Bahrain, Syria or Yemen.
It is completely irresponsible to advertise Tox as a "secure messenger" if it has not gone through any outside audit or review. People like political dissidents depend on encryption software for their lives and you need to be more responsible in this matter.
"Expert cryptologists" wouldn't touch Tox with a ten foot pole in the first place.
You're not real.
This is what they look like on Facebook. The basket icon is to buy more. We're FOSS so people can get them all for free and even make their own and share them.
Exactly fucking this. Tox is not some sort of kewl yooniks klub 4 ganoo + gentu lusers only. It's for everyone.
It does work well enough. Otruta was used in the Ukrainian Revolution, and Otruta is a variant of Tox.
We don't need an audit to know it's secure. irungentoo is not just some random programmer, he is probably the fourth or fifth best in Quebec.
>be CIA in deep cover in NK
>need to get a message to my handler
>use tox because it says it's secure and there's no time for a face to face
>now I'm up for being eaten by dogs in front of the glorious leader tommorow
No, they are not. They are larger, they are not tied to the standard :) :D :( set, and everyone can make their own. They are not characters, they are images and treated as such. Just displayed inline.
Closer to Steam emoticons than anything, if that's what you mean
>They are larger, they are not tied to the standard :) :D :( set, and everyone can make their own. They are not characters, they are images and treated as such
That's EXACTLY what MSN could do.
Fuck off underage faggot
Holy shit kill yourself
Actual communist here, and I'm fucking ashamed of that woman even daring to use the same symbol I cherish so much.
One hint though, if Tox really wants to avoid the whole he/she pronoun debate, my suggestion is to rephrase the sentences to be impersonal/genderless instead of using "they".
In response to the criticism of notsecure I've seen here I've decided to take action on his abuses.
Tox got into the Google Summer of Code because of my hard work giving it a professional image, and notsecure's antics and stupid fight against social justice are ruining it.
I am pissed off that a student of ours getting paid for the privilege of working on the next Skype has abused my trust so badly.
Muslim Messenger is a special variant of Tox tailored for use by the Islamic community. I created it for use in Syria and other regimes that oppress their people, as well as to avoid Western surveillance under the guise of 'anti-Terrorism'.
As for me, I'm in charge of the Tox Infrastructure, including Tox CDN, Tox DNS, Tox Certification Authority, and the Tox Open Internet Software Foundation.
Muslimmessenger is a joke and does not exist.
This poster >>43020765 isn't real, see wiki.tox.im/4chan. It's a persistent troll. Stqism is in IRC right now and you can talk to the real him if you want on webchat.freenode.net and joining #tox-dev.
Stqism is not a SJW, he's the one who went on an anti-SJW spergrage on Twitter. Stqism is second under irungentoo and he runs servers and shit.
That post is all bullshit.
>Irungentoo wanted to create a shitstorm by insulting women and minorities. Stqism is a Muslim, so he responded by adding a parrallell 'Muslim Messenger Mode' to the Tox code and building an identical infrastructure based around that.
>He managed to control everything by saying that he needed to have it under his 'UNG Linux Foundation' so that Tox could avoid being sued by Skype.
so it's just an inside joke?
this is a troll thread, created by either an ausfag neo-nazi or an italian piece of shit, or maybe some other fag, but those are the only two I can think of that would be this dedicated.

Newsflash: 'Muslimmessenger' does not exist.
Stqism is not a tox dev
this is a big troll
Muslim Messenger is named specifically as it's designed for the Arabic and Persian languages, and includes extra security features.
On another note:
We've got another Tox parody for you!
Check out http://tox.im/sti for our take on our favourite troll, savetheinternet
But as you are a muslim, you are a person who subscribes to a certain institution called religion that dictates a world view that is governed by an idea that there exists a deity called Allah. A deity that created all, knows all and is everywhere. The problem comes in when there are thousands of different competing institutions in this world with completely differing versions about how all came to be. Some of these religions include a deity, some don't, some even have several deities and one even says that the world came from a birds egg.
Now, you claim that you know that the religion which you represent has all the things correct and insist that the rest of the religions are plain bullshit. If you don’t claim that Islam is the only right religion, why the fuck are you a muslim in the first place? If you claim that you are able to grasp the literally infinite amount of information that our world contains and decipher from the sum of it that Allah is the right answer, you simply are delirious because it’s clearly impossible for a human being to acquire even a fraction of this information floating around during one lifetime.
If you claim that you simply subscribe to your belief system out of gut feeling or something similar, you really haven’t thought things through because everyone that has, clearly understands the fact that it’s impossible to verify which religion is right, so why waste your time on locking yourself into one specifically? And if you feel like it’s something that should be believed in any way without much logical reasoning, you are just good old plain stupid.
So as you are a muslim, it doesn’t mean you are crazy, but it means that you are either stupid or delirious, why do you think we should listen to anything that you have to say in any subject in the first place?
So you take the stupid route I suppose... I understand. Have you ever contemplated the fact that The world is much shittier place because people like you exist. People who have a locked down set of rules about life, people who are not capable of intaking logic and reason to ponder about the choices they have made along the way in life. do you really think that it's sane for a person to take an irrefutable stance behind a given set of rules and notions because they are written in a book? You think it's completely reasonable to base your whole life in a story told in a book? I bet that harry potter and shit like that are just as legit in this matter, but probably just use way less scare tactics in order to convince the reader.
Have you read the bible for example? How about the torah, talmud, tripitaka, aqdas, books of scientology, kalevala and the return of the jedi? I bet you have not red all these books and I bet that if you do, you will convert your self to those religions as well.
If you are a person who believes in the possibility that one religion can have the truth, then why the fuck do you give your self such shitty odds with only believing in one religion? That is absolutely retarded in every possible aspect. Step up your game and get on reading mayne, you can't be sure which heaven is the right one.
People who refuse to use tox/work on tox because of something like "pronouns" would be of no help anyway. Allowing such a topic to even be given consideration is taking time away from the real goal.
Do not let this SJW bullshit become entangled with tox, it kills everything it touches.
So, I made a simple bot that works kind of like omegle.
All you have to do is add it, send it your Tox ID, and it will put you in a queue.
If there are two people in the queue, it will match them together and send them each other's Tox ID.
You can add it at:firstname.lastname@example.org
status changes based on state
removes offline people from the queue
