Change the landing page (7)

1 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2016-10-16 07:36 ID:qy8lzq8V

The landing page currently looks like that of a parked domain. This undoubtedly results in a lot of bounces. Therefore, I would to suggest that the landing page be changed, perhaps to something similar to what 4chan has. That kind of landing page is a lot more functional and clearer.

It has links on the top, a random stock image at the centre, it looks like a parked domain page. The layout should be changed, or atleast immediately redirect to and put the links on the scrolling bar outside of the iFrame.

I think we should replace it with images of mittens or mitten shaped objects.

Lets face it bepis, 4-ch is dying. Why don't we try and advertise the site on multiple other websites, or if worse comes to worse.. Make a 4chan ad, shudders.

Suggestion/Bug fix: Closing tags at the end of a post (10)

1 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2016-07-10 14:46 ID:l/mUSP3d

Currently, DQN has a couple of nippleheads leaving their markup tags open, rendering the rest of the page unreadable. How about having the board close the tags at the end of each post automatically?

Page that shows all the new posts across boards (6)

1 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2016-10-08 19:25 ID:guDj7zjc

This could be helpful for moderation as well.

I haven't written much Perl, but I could probably try to hack something together. The program could easily cache the posts to reduce load.

I assume that all the 4-ch boards are independent flat file databases, and that is probably the cause of many of the performance issues the site experiences. It's not like the site is broken, it works fine, but it still makes me want to re-architect things so that boards load faster in general

but I digress. I think that the page that shows all new posts across boards could easily be done client-side without any server development effort as well. I'm thinking of putting together a user script that attempts it.

what does everyone think of something like this?

2 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2016-10-09 07:02 ID:zSkkf7Ut

It sounds interesting, but I probably wouldn't use it too often. I'm usually alerted to new posts from boards that interest me from my rss reader.

Maybe other people would derive more use from it.

Are you joking?

15 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2016-04-24 05:21 ID:8/lQEWwU

It's internally updated. They added picture replies a few years ago, and they added a catalog mode in 2005 that isn't in the open source. Also, the "upvotes" are just a button that says "Yeah!" essentially, which prevents a bunch of retards from posting stuff like "QUOTED FOR TRUTH" or "I agree" like they mindlessly do on 4chan. I actually like the idea.

16 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2016-04-26 11:45 ID:Heaven

20 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2016-08-28 19:49 ID:ePbjEmw1

Can the deletion order be changed to bump instead of deleting older threads when someone makes a bunch of new ones with tumblr screenshots because they don't get how it works it deletes least bumped threads rather than front page ones that are just old and active?

There should be an etiquette page. (3)

1 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2016-09-08 23:57 ID:Rc/ApLoA

Tumblr blog dqnquality has been linking back to us and getting new users, and while most people are vehemently against new blood, I just think an etiquette page will suffice.

2 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2016-09-09 12:46 ID:3wi1jIRT

There is already an etiquette page.
It has been here for years.

3 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2016-09-10 09:50 ID:Rc/ApLoA

This is really more of a tutorial than an etiquette page though. It covers writing a good title, and what sage does but it doesn't include why you'd want to sage a thread or when to and when not to use a name.

1 Name: 🔰!ESpeoN/nPA : 2011-04-14 14:32 ID:zAPdWXcp

Is it possible to implement HTTPS for the brighter future? For example, these guys even offer a disgustingly free one:

It would be horrible if KGB, employer or some kind of international conspiracy discover that I read DQN all day. There are probably some other users who need this protection as well.

Don't self sign when there is either CACert or StartSSL.

5 Name: bps : 2014-01-24 12:15 ID:Heaven

I'm not keen on StartSSL because after a year you have to start paying, meaning we are back to square one. CACert looks promising - I will look into it.
