/site/ - Site Issues

The board for discussing site related issues, questions, concerns, and suggestions.
Name?

This field is optional. You can choose any name you want, or you can post anonymously by leaving this field empty.

Tripcodes are a way to identify yourself between posts without having to register with the site. To use a tripcode, enter your name as ‹name›#‹key›.You can choose anything you want as the key—it is private and will never be shown to other posters or stored on the server. For example:

Rarity#bestpony → Rarity!.4PK7yxdII

If you want a tripcode containing specific words, you can download a program designed to search for tripcodes, such as Tripcode Explorer.

Email?

Entering an e-mail is optional.

There are also code words you can enter here which perform certain actions when you submit your post.

  • sage — lets you post without bumping a thread.
  • nonoko — uses the original post behavior to redirect to the board index.

These can be used at the same time as an e-mail address by typing ‹email›#‹action›.

You can also use Skype names in place of an e-mail. The notation is the same as a link to a username on skype itself, which is skype:‹username›

Hello Chewy +Element Of Fortitude+!!Twilight Sparkle ## ModCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 13615Locked[View][Last 50 Posts]

I am a mod now.

My primary goal is to help combat spam. I am going to try my best to not intervene in actual site discussion unless it is absolutely necessary, aside from enforcing the rules and what not.

Uhh...that's it, I guess. If you have questions (about me as a mod), feel free to ask.

webms and Firefox AnonymousCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 13429[View]

With the latest version of Firefox, it is no longer possible to close expanded webms by clicking on them without right-clicking the expanded webm first then disable the controls.
I suggest implementing a close button as shown in pic in order to allow users to close the expanded webm with ease.

Firefox did a fantastic job at breaking support for this feature. It turns out that the update where you can click on the screen to pause the video prevents any click events from triggering. I ended up completely rewriting the inline image expansion script -- something I'm not entirely disappointed that I had to deal with. The old script was Tinyboard legacy code mixed with some of the oldest JavaScript work done for the site, so I'm glad it's gone now.

I had Zeke test the new script before deployment and he didn't find any issues either, so it should be working now.

AnonymousCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 13537

Can confirm. Whatever they changed in Firefox 59 that also disallowed you to minimize webms by clicking within the padding of the image doesn't break the new implementation either.

So it also works on the beta version of Firefox. Thanks a bunch of the fix

This fix seems to have introduced a new issue for me in Pale Moon. When I close an audio webm now, the audio continues to play, and if I open the webm again, a new instance of the audio starts.

How hard would it be to leave a visual indicator on a thread that's hit bumplimit, preferably one that appears when the autorefresh happens? I have no idea if this is even feasible but it'd sure help us lurking serialfags realize the action's moved to a fresh thread. Pic unrelated.

Actually I just realized that this concept would be problematic considering the way the bump behavior changes beyond the 250+ limit. Nothing actually gets bumplocked anymore except by mod intervention; all threads beyond the 250 limit just get bump-throttled in intervals of around 7-14 hours. I guess some alt text behind an icon would be a good place to explain the behavior maybe? I have to think things through better. I might set this request aside for now.

Now that i have your attention with this image, i'd like to address /site/'s standards.

Or rather, it's current lack thereof.

/site is, and i quote: "The board for discussing site related issues, questions, concerns, and suggestions."

There is discussion, but there is also a lot of ad hominem attacks and uncivil behaviour in general being thrown around.

Towards the end of /meta/'s life, we tried board-only bans for people who couldn't keep themselves civil while discussing things.

Going forward, i'm going to start issuing /site/-only bans for people who: Use ad hominem arguments, do not contribute to the discussion at hand or do so in a belligerent manner.

Concerning "Ban Evasion" and Visibility of Bans NoonimCountry code: ponychan.png, country type: customflag, valid: 13301[View]

So, a few days ago, I made the unfortunate discovery that, as it happens, the way bans are done on this site are unfortunately out of date. It is very easy to be banned, and never realize it, or to be banned and believe it to be revoked, only to get a massive increase on your ban for "evasion" that was never intended.

Now, a part of this issue could be solved by following a certain aspect of the "Site Staff Standards", but I'll leave that for another thread. Instead, I'd like to explore options to prevent these types of events in the future.
As it currently stands, the average user cannot be reasonably expected to abide a ban, when they may well not even know it exists, leaving off issues of assumed revoked bans. And, I can certainly say, getting banned for "evasion" and then worse having the lot remain despite explaining the ordeal to the administration breeds a helluva lot of animosity. I'd make the argument that it is not a healthy standard for a community.

So; how do we fix this?
It seems to me there's a few options, though unfortunately most would probably require some development.
The first, method'd be adopting a 8chan-esque "ban list", showing public bans and their duration, as well as, I believe, bans that've been revoked. Issues with this are, of course, that the bans are public. Might not be ideal, depending on your stake there.
Still leaves the issue with difficulty noticing the ban in the first place, but, at least, after you've noticed it you have a place to check. A "ban page" would also be a nice addition, as it seems currently, the only way to see the ban page is to attempt to make a post.

Another option is to link bans to names, as well. This'd be an optional addition, in most situations, I'd say, so you could obviously avoid it when made by a imitator, or an anon. This'd give you the application regardless of IP, which'd avoid issues for those of us with dynamic or multiple devices.

Another, probably shit option, is accounts. Bonus points for giving people a way to directly contact, but it's also a bit of a hassle, and goes against our usual imageboard standards.

Thumbnails in #mature threads now have a border around them, and a background that appears in transparent images. That Lyra picture is supposed to be just Lyra on top of transparency, nothing else.

I don't think there's any reason to make them look different from non-#mature threads...

But anyway, since I suspect this is an accidental change that happened because of the new Spoiler and NSFW images, allow me to take the opportunity to say that I really like the new ones.

Delete /trash/ed threads instead of effectively duplicating the offending content.
The "discussion" never picks up in /trash/, and the locked thread may still subtly agitate posters on the board it existed on.

Sometimes this happens with really bad threads. I often leave linked ones there so they don't ask "why is my thread deleted?". It's helpful.

I think deleting them is a bad idea because it's better to have them there so people understand why they were trashed and what the context was for stuff if they missed it. anyone who doesn't want to see it can just hide it. I guarantee you if mods just started outright deleting threads lots of people would start bitching, but when you leave the thread visible it lets the mods be like, "look, son, THIS is why your thread is shit, this isn't something shady."
