nuke all boards under News, no one uses them
there's a lot of threads that should be on /tech/ but were made in /code/ cause no-one uses /tech/
what was the point of having both /net/ and /iaa/ again
del /dqn/ just to see waht happens
I like the separation of romance and other personal issues.
Inactive threads should be fucking archived. Not necessarily old threads, but inactive threads.
I'm not sure about the time, 6 months? or is that too fast
Agreed. Perhaps we should rather make it a year, but the antique threads are what makes 4-ch give off that dead vibe. If a thread hasn't been replied to for a year, then I don't see the problem with archiving it and having whoever wants to discuss that topic again make a new thread.
A-are you there bps?
This has been a controversial subject for a long time.
Thanks for the reply bps, good to hear you're considering it
12 months is pretty short. 3 or 4 years would be more reasonable.
I like the idea of merging /code/ with /tech/. And why does /tech/ say "Tech Support" in the frame anyway?
That's how it (inevitably) wound up being used.
My fear is that removing/merging the boards would just make the site 'feel' smaller and even more uncomfortable in the long run. Without posters, even one board will seem slow. Even DQN.
Sadly, the only solution is advertising somewhere OTHER than 4chan. The only thing they have to offer any more are replies about how this place, surprise, isn't 4chan.
I don't mind the museum atmosphere, not posting sometimes can be a virtue.
If you spot something that needs moderator attention, post about it here.
Specify the exact thread and post number(s) if possible.
It's always the same spammer, 18.104.22.168 from .jp, and banning doesn't work anymore.
I have to delete all his spams manually.
bps, where are you?
title speaks for itself!
I fixed everything now, and answered your other request too!
That guy shouldn't be able to spam us anymore.
this isn't really a moderation request but could someone please fix the formatting in http://4-ch.net/net/kareha.pl/1442763088/1,3
This isn't really worthy of deletion.
It seems everytime I bring up a big problem, 4-ch'ers think it's a good time to go ahead and blurt out all the little problems, so on Monday I get some time off work. So that means, I'll have some time to fix minor things, etc. So, list for me, in as much detail necessary all the things that are broken, missing, not working, changes etc and I'll try to get them all done on Monday. I might also look at taking down the site for a while, upgrading all the boards to the latest copy of Kareha etc.
And please, don't shit this thread up, I will be liberal in deleting posts that are blatantly offtopic or stupid.
Captcha is being a whore on /dqn/
Disregard that one (i made that post,) it's working now.
Like this: <a href="http://wakaba.c3.cx/sup/kareha.pl/1439382507/" />
With formatting set to HTML obviously
I didn't know that you can just type out the link
If you have strong (or weak) opinions on any of the following things, I would like to hear what you think!
I'll monitor this for a long time and act accordingly if people have any input.
Hi again guys. I want to ask your opinion on a new feature:
For each post, how about putting at the bottom of it (or at the end of the line with name, date, ID, etc.) a list of posts that quote it? For example if >>2 and >>3 quote >>1, then underneath >>1 there would be something like: Replies: >>2, >>3.
Let me know what you think!
I find both suggestions sound. Make it so.
I'm not particularly fussed either way about the listing replies thing, but the hovering to show posts sounds like an excellent idea.
why was >>/2 deleted but not >>/3 (>>/2 was deleted after >>/3 was posted IIRC)
were all posts from that IP mass-deleted without the mod seeing the thread?
or do I remember wrong?
I've an idea: add 'VORUDEMOTO' to the spam filter
We just got an imageboard without any warning
Oh, and for transparency I wish to describe the two methods by which somebody might get banned:
A ban results in the IP address being blocked from making posts on the entirety of the website.
And, I have removed the ban from the guy that emailed me today at 20.31 CET.
Okay, here's the reasoning: I know that a lot of users over here consider themselves otaku or hikkikomori. I'm not here to discuss if this is justified or not, it has been done many times already on almost every thread on the subject.
No, here's my point: take a look at the "hobbies" board. Take a look at the "personnal issues" board. The first one is cluttered by "weeaboo" threads that are often quite redundant, and the second with "halp I'm hikki" threads, that are also quite redundant. Well, why not, after all, it's the way the community is composed right now I guess.
But there is a problem; I really think this community isn't FULL of otaku and hikkikomori. Well, I am not one. And a lot of people can get sick of trying to access a board, only to see the frontpage full of threads about otaku. So it can either discourage people of contributing, and could also drive some nice and interesting people out instead of drawing them in, because they will think "oh, that's an otaku-filled BBS" instead of "oh, that's an anonymous BBS". When I see a thread starting with "hello fellow otaku" in the "hobbies" section, it makes me cringe; this makes the assumption that everyone browsing the page is an otaku.
Seriously, it doesn't have to be like this. What I'm proposing is not intended to be a form of ghettoisation, but rather a commonplace for people to discuss this lifestyle (I suppose it would go under that category), be it an issue to them or not, to give the other boards a little room to breathe. I also know the flux of posters will also decrease, and maybe the boards will move a little slower in the other sections as well, but I believe this would be short-term. So in short:
I don't think it would work. You'll end up having to be picky and choosy about everything.
A lot of the people in the self proclaimed "hikkikomori" threads aren't necessarily otaku, just like all hikkikomori aren't otaku in Japan. Also, it's important and sensible for "otaku" with personal issues to discuss them with more than just otaku.
Looking at /hobbies/, I would say maybe half the threads are "otaku" related, and they're clearly obvious. I dunno, maybe it would make sense to split it if there were a whole lot of people posting with both otaku, and non-otaku stuff, but right now it wouldn't.
Isn't this what IAA already is?
Well looking at /hobbies/ right now we can see for the first ten threads:
1: trip to london or japan (14) -- japan in the title
2: [Looking for Group] With our powers combined... Otakings! [Garage Sales] (35) -- self-explanatory
3: Weeaboo... they just want to be Japanese, or any Asian is okay? (44) -- self-explanatory
4: Smoking (11) -- non-otaku
5: Hair Styles (25) -- quest for the jrocker hairstyle
6: Is anyone good with designing paper crafts, paper goods etc? (6) -- non-otaku, at least not directly
7: Please help! I don't want to be an otaku anymore! (91) -- self-explanatory
8: [Anime] Mobile Suit Models!!! [Otaku] (36) -- self-explanatory
9: OCD (12) -- self-explanatory
10: evolving otaku (14) -- self-explanatory
Now, I must say I agree with you on the fact that people having "hikkikomori" issues aren't necessarily otaku (note, I'm using the western meaning of the term here), but sincerely - the simple fact that they use "hikkikomory" and not "social reject", "recluse", or whatever... that gives a lot. But I agree, these people need input from other kind of people than your average otaku/channer. So why not, maybe we can keep them in /personal/.
Hobbyists = Otaku
People who think Otaku = ANIME MANIAC are not real otaku.
That case is clear I guess.
We already have a wota board.
Me as wota, I am around "Hobbies" alot.
Yeah, but most people think otaku = extreme weeaboo.
And I know that this board is based of a japanese BBS, and I do enjoy a lot of japanese things, but it pisses me off that everything over here revolves around japan, y'know?
It'd possibly help if there were eastern and western-flavored boards, I know a lot of people scream WEEABOO! every time someone who likes the eastern flavor posts about it...
One drawback, of course, would be that people would probably disregard it and post about Japanese things on the western discussion boards and get WEEABOO! shouted at them in all caps anyway, and people who aren't hardcore fans of the east might stand out on the eastern boards and create complaints like, "This is OTAKU BOARD, u dont have a lunchbox its a BENTO BOX DX"...
I admit I like certain Japanese things, some anime, and this style of message board, but it does get old after a while, feeling unable to escape AnimeJapaneseFantasyland stuff anywhere I look on here.
A good first step would be to merge the anime and manga boards into anime/manga, and we could call that board "Otaku".
And what's exactly the 「western flavor?」
What is 「the east,」 japan? And what is japan, animei and manga?
Dumb every way you look at it.
The idea of 「Wannabe japanese」 and the term 「otaku」 have been taken too seriously, given way too much attention.
Better, I think, would be to cut off this shit and bury anime and manga into more general animation and 「story drawings」 boards. I suppose most wouldnt want to see shit about superhero comics, but it could just say thats not allowed.
Is it possible to implement HTTPS for the brighter future? For example, these guys even offer a disgustingly free one: http://www.startssl.com/
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.
Any updates on this, Squeaks?
I notice that https://4-ch.net does work, but it loads a blank page and uses an outdated security certificate.
I will look into this, but if it's implemented it'd just be a self-signed certificate.
Don't self sign when there is either CACert or StartSSL.
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.
https://letsencrypt.org/ will be launching in september. any chance of progress on this when that happens? it's completely free, and unlike cacert, will be trusted by default by browsers.
There's a lot of overlap with current boards and there always will be, the only solution is to be able to make a thread on multiple boards, using Unix hardlinks.
We need to delete all of the old posts on every board. Everyone is bumping old threads made in 2005 and this means new discussion and threads don't happen, and the ancient atmosphere keeps newcomers away. So if all the posts were deleted, that would be very nice, we could start anew, and fresh.
yeah, maybe archiving threads made before 2015 would be cool
i want my post deleted please,
i cant seem to delete it, so im asking you.
