/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›

Are we deleting Kabel threads all of a sudden?

No? They tend to get autosaged. We love our Kabel but in all fairness it can clog up the board(s) when he is making his weird lewd shitposts multiple times a day. Furthermore, /oat/ is not generally supposed to be the lewder board. If Kabel wants to make an actual porn thread on /ef/ rather than just a lewd shitpost on /oat/ that wouldn't be an issue.

It is very rare that we outright delete a thread. Most threads that we feel were not or are no longer worth it get autosaged, locked and/or moved to /trash/ for the sake of transparency.

Moving to trash and locking are the same thing as deletion, you ask me. Never understood why you guys act as though it's different. Only change is that you leave the thread to clog the catalogue.
Incredibly unproductive.

If we outright delete a thread, then people will say "What got deleted?" and/or "Why did it get deleted?" or even possibly make claims that what the mods say about it afterwards is lies.

When we trash a thread, we are able to essentially "get rid of" it but allow everyone to still see it for a while so we can be like "You see? Look. Right here. This is why the thread was shit." And then people (in theory) can't make up any BS or take shit out of context and what not.

More or less.

Alternatively, you could move it to trash, and then delete it.
Then, you have a copy for that rather odd, and incredibly unlikely reason. All the while, not having the catalogue cluttered by useless threads.

Problem solved.

I mean, /trash/ is basically just a holding cell. It only has one page, so things fall off pretty quickly. Moving it to /trash/ and leaving it there for a bit allows for the thread to be saved if need be, and it also allows for users to see what's been removed, and make threads like this one to get an explanation of what happened, if they so desire.

Are we? Good.

That's not really the problem, though.

The problem is the locked "this thread had been moved" jazz.

Well, the point of that is so people know the thread has been moved, and where it has been moved to. You can still post in threads after that's done, albeit in their new location (In this case, /trash/). If that wasn't there, people wouldn't really have any way of knowing the thread had been moved if they weren't watching it or had it open in a tab.

Fair enough I guess.
I'd say you should delete them after a day or so, at least.
The original, I mean.

That's something that could be up for debate, though I'd argue that they tend to fall off the front page pretty fast anyhow.

>>14699
Yeah, it seems like a silly reason to me. I mean, most the time, it's incredibly arbitrary anyway, so, people're not really getting any kind of standard or expectation out of that.

But, whatever. at the very least, the original should be deleted after a day or so.
