I probably should have made this earlier, but this is the thread for requesting bug fixes and things that you would like to see implemented. As they are requested, I will add them to the list in the OP, and a rough percentage showing how complete that bugfix or feature is completed.

For starters, I fixed the Youtube embed thumbnails being stretched strangely, and it only took one letter to fix it!

Bug fixes
Youtube thumbnail stretching - 100%
Youtube thumbnail title - 100%>
Fix links in spoilers still showing when not hovering - 100% - you may have to do a hard-refresh (Shift-F5 or Shift-Refresh button click) for it to apply
Fix Return/Entire thread/Last 50 posts links overlapping with the quick reply and toggle post form links - 0%

Add a seperate interface for mobile browsers - 0%

Well I just looked at it myself, and for the Name box, it only says Zeke, so it must be broken (unless it works for someone else)

External version: 2.39
Native version: 2.13

After over three months worth of coding power and countless hours of rewriting code almost entirely from the ground up, it is an honor for me to present you guys with Ponychan X version 2. Its over 6000 lines long, yet faster than ever, free from any unnecessary frameworks. This will also serve as the support thread for the nightly builds that require installation, as they work their way into neutral builds to be updated to the site itself.

1) Like before, install a GM-based extension, if don't already have one, for your browser.
Chrome []Firefox []SeaMonkey []Opera []Safari []

2) Install Ponychan X []

So, just asking again if we can make the "holiday themes" and all that optional rather than forced on /oat/. Be nice, pls mods. Pls.

If you look at the sticky it doesn't look like anything is happening.

The Sweetie bot needs to be recharged or something.

Thank you so much for posting the code; unfortunately it's not working with the modernized 4chan but that'll do it too, since it's easy to rewrite-- I will definitely do so later.

I was asking if there is a Colgate CSS for 4chan. (´・ω・`)

Sometimes if the message is too small, the window doesn't recognize it as a new message. Generally if it has an image or a second line of text it's A-OKAY, but otherwise you might get hornswaggled.

Since we pretty much have a window that this occurs, isn't there a way we can have a few three letter acronym agencies monitor traffic for a bit? As exciting as potential felony charges are because of cached files.

Yes, I assume that ever since /gala/ was made we've been close to storage capacity, or at least that's the only big increase for a while that I can imagine - we are definitely using more than we did in our peak days at any rate because of it. In fact, I seem to remember all boards used to have up to 18 pages, I assume that's why the standard has been chopped down to 12.

I doubt webms alone will put us at 100% capacity, else a fuckload extra measures would have been taken. assuming we aren't using dedicated servers we can likely go over that for a short while before getting warnings. But webms will increase the usage by tens of megabytes (my bet, off-season 50~ MB a month, on-season 90-150 MB), which might not seem a lot to you, but if say, we only have three or four hundred megabytes left, that's a lot, since the server always needs extra space for certain operations that may need to cache data.

A bit late, but the reason you need to embed it instead of uploading is because our servers already use a lot of disk space and bandwidth

Can we get the episode initials feature updated for season 4? I'm not asking for them to be added week by week,'s been months since the season ended and none of them are added.

And while I'm here...I had an idea for the episode initials which aren't tagged because they're also commonly used to mean other things (like PC, SaYS, MD). Maybe there could be way to "force" them to tag as episode titles, like by putting a * in front of it or something. But really, just adding season 4 for now will be fine.

Sure. Some of those puns, I swear…

I changed the common abbreviations I noticed to only tag if they're capitalized the right way – says, SaYS, SAYS. Should be good enough for now.

Let's play "spot the malformed HTML"!

Hint: You should perform truncation BEFORE sanitization, not after.

The most obvious one was the "<span"
>> No. 162172
Actually, the OP's pic has it wrapping because of the white-space, so that "<span" is actually complete. But if I were to go off of that in the image, than we are missing the last bit of that sentence. The '&' should actually be &quot; I believe.

So he's talking about the fact that the board.php script (or one of the many other referenced php scripts within that script), performs sanitation before truncation, therefore, a " mark will become &quot;, but the character count was too high because of that, therefore &quot; got cut to just &.

Hi mods! i have just a little request, concerning /chat/. Now, i've petitioned to have the board renamed a few times, and it has been changed a few times, but somehow, it keeps on sneaking back to "obligatory off-topic board."

It's currently Chattanooga, but again, the "obligatory off-topic board" has reappeared. If it is okay, i would like to formally petition for the board names to remain consistent; lots of things are okay to have fun with, but let us not joke about with our infrastructure.

i would like to request the name be changed to "Conversation lounge" or something of that sort. If that's not feasible, that's okay too. i know /chat/ doesn't get many posts, but i still feel like at least it should be given a fair shake.

It was a lead up to /oat/stanbul, which also doesn't make any sense. Discovering this half way through, I decided to not change /oat/.

Also interesting to note that Fen changed /oat/'s subtitle at the same time he changed /chat/'s, and not a single person has commented on it.

/oat/ has enough going on below the titles so people simply don't notice them. :^)
