Clearly DQN should be more VIP Quality (29)

1 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2015-10-22 14:44 ID:KUUUWSTx

I have a few suggestions:

We should copy 2channel "soko" and "shuffle" commands.
Soko throws the thread down to the bottom.
Shuffle throws the thread in a random position.

Its genial!

20 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2015-11-17 20:17 ID:IgN+CLAY

I want more information: is this
just to the bottom of the page
Just to the bottom of the thread list
All the way down at the bottom of 'all threads'

I'm in favour of shuffle in any case!

21 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2015-11-18 19:13 ID:A/t+8LoP

I forgot. I could swear it was "all the way down at the bottom of 'all threads'".

22 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2015-11-21 13:43 ID:qGTXn7Tk

That's a bit extreme compared to sage. Down to the bottom of /index would make more sense, as it's still there to be seen if someone wants to rescue it, but one bump from an older thread or one new thread and it gets nudged out of sight.

Also, the bottom of all threads is a nice place to go to for some history. Randomly soko'd threads in the mix will ruin the feeling of being thrust several years into the past.

23 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2015-11-21 17:18 ID:Heaven

I feel the same way about shuffle, up til now people haven't really been able to mess up the thread order that much, and giving them the ability to randomly place threads at a new position in the full list seems like a huge step towards making threads undiscovered. I feel if these are implemented they should both be limited to the first page and not the whole thread index.

[Handheld] The mobile reader support and requests thread (62)

1 Name: Squeeks : 2007-10-20 20:56 ID:IxY8cNNA

On a brief initial trial, currently food and japanese boards have a "mobile" version, which is pretty much stripped down and designed for people with phones, PDA's and other handheld devices that can browse mobile XHTML content. Right now I've done what I can without more rigourous testing since I haven't the means to test this on my own phone.

So please post any problems or requests you have. Screenshots are very helpful even if you haven't got a problem, so I can see how it looks like over a variety of devices.

Things I already know about at this point:

  • You can't reply to threads, or make new ones. It's pretty much "read only".

  • Post numbers have embedded javascript, as well as the "delete" button, both of which don't work.

  • Text maybe somewhat too large, and there is no CSS/looks boring.

Post too long. Click to view the whole post or the thread page.

I would love to be able to see 4-ch's source code to try to make it more mobile. As of tonight I've decided to become active here again, and am slightly disappointed that i can still see my comments from over a year ago are on the requests front page thing. Is Squeeks still around?

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 /hobbies/

del /dqn/ just to see waht happens

5 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2015-09-14 19:23 ID:BgdDQ93x

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.

6 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2015-09-20 17:44 ID:BgdDQ93x

A-are you there bps?

7 Name: bps!!+u1+mB+S (Admin) : 2015-09-20 22:29 ID:HFJZMXob

This has been a controversial subject for a long time.

  1. I'm sympathetic to the idea of archiving all the existing threads which haven't been active for 6-12 months or so.
  2. Merging boards is a big move. I have been considering other ways to solve these problems of inactivity. Should they fail, then maybe we can try merging boards.

Stay tuned...

8 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2015-09-21 14:35 ID:BgdDQ93x

Thanks for the reply bps, good to hear you're considering it

9 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2015-09-21 18:20 ID:Heaven

12 months is pretty short. 3 or 4 years would be more reasonable.

10 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2015-09-23 16:01 ID:1sfG/nWz

I like the idea of merging /code/ with /tech/. And why does /tech/ say "Tech Support" in the frame anyway?

11 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2015-09-29 02:31 ID:Heaven

That's how it (inevitably) wound up being used.

12 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2015-09-29 03:44 ID:QjANyrky

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.

13 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2015-11-18 23:14 ID:+l6w5Gxb

The only problem with inactivity is that it tends to scare off new users

14 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2015-11-21 07:29 ID:Heaven

IIchan is dead, that thing that replaced it is pretty dead too.
I doubt drastic changes to the site will encourage consistent long term activity, that will only come with a resurgence in the interest in 2ch style bbs in English.
No way to fight the decline in interest really other than becoming tastemakers.

Here's an idea for how 4Channel can become an NNTPChan frontend while still keeping images disabled (5)

1 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2015-10-18 19:09 ID:KJs+FKId

We get the users of other NNTPChan frontends to tag images that are necessary for the understanding of the post. A link to the image will be put before the text of the post if it's tagged. It will not be shown if it isn't tagged.

2 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2015-10-20 01:33 ID:Heaven

Why do we want to become a NNTPChan frontend again?

Write me a list of things broken and wrong with the site. (82)

1 Name: Squeeks 2006-02-09 17:49 ID:RQUdcHCi

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.

[User input] Please post your thoughts on these pressing matters (24)

1 Name: bps : 2014-03-06 14:11 ID:Heaven

If you have strong (or weak) opinions on any of the following things, I would like to hear what you think!

  1. Probably some of you have noticed that DQN takes ages to fully load. This is because the old hit counter image (the frying pan thingy) has stopped working. Should I remove it altogether? Replace it with a new one? If so, what, and does it matter that the counter is reset? Maybe I could just put a fake one there as a sort of memorial, with some fake number? In any case the loading thing bothers me a lot.
  2. Is it time the default anonymous name on DQN is changed again? What would you like to see it changed to, if at all?
  3. Banners! Should we have a competition or something? Do you prefer things as they are? Please see this thread for more info:
  4. Has anybody noticed any spam since the new year/change of server? Are you happy with the level of moderation (or lack thereof)?
  5. Any other thoughts/suggestions? Even super trivial ones.

I'll monitor this for a long time and act accordingly if people have any input.

16 Name: bps!!+u1+mB+S (Admin) : 2015-08-25 13:16 ID:ZrTMoPi3

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.

Another cool thing I have wanted to do for a while is this hover-preview of posts that you get on some imageboards. If I hover over a link >>1, then I get a pop-up box next to the link showing the actual post >>1. This requires JavaScript so I understand that it might not be so popular. But it might make navigation a bit more natural, since when you click a post link, it will take you to a new page showing only that post. I think this behaviour is a bit outdated (although I don't intend to change it).

Let me know what you think!

17 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2015-08-25 13:31 ID:nUVZXXoy

I find both suggestions sound. Make it so.

18 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2015-09-03 22:47 ID:gEhvz6k8

I'm not particularly fussed either way about the listing replies thing, but the hovering to show posts sounds like an excellent idea.

19 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2015-09-07 07:18 ID:Heaven

maybe you could have that behavior optional so that people who don't want javascript are not forced to have it.

20 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2015-09-14 15:44 ID:MUf0rqEB

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?

21 Name: bps!!+u1+mB+S (Admin) : 2015-09-20 22:25 ID:YMYSNTFr

If JavaScript is disabled, then the board would function as it does now.

There is no way to mass-delete everything from a single IP, as far as I know.

It's just an experiment. I don't know if it will last. Do you think it should be removed?

Bans and appeals (3)

1 Name: bps!!+u1+mB+S (Admin) : 2015-09-21 21:06 ID:9fayH87y

It was pointed out to me here that Channel4 has not been enforcing any of the bans actually made by moderators or by the system. That is, at least since the transfer of servers almost two years ago. Yesterday I fixed this by enforcing the existing bans, but it is possible that some people have now been wrongly prevented from posting.

If you have been wrongfully banned, please email and I will see that your ban is lifted. Already in 1 day I have received an email regarding this.

If you have any suggestions and so on, please feel free to post them here. I guess you can also appeal your ban here, but maybe you don't want to make your IP address public.

2 Name: bps!!+u1+mB+S (Admin) : 2015-09-21 21:09 ID:9fayH87y

Oh, and for transparency I wish to describe the two methods by which somebody might get banned:

  1. An administrator (me) or moderator has banned you. This is usually due to spam.
  2. The system has banned you. This is because there is activity coming from your IP address consistent with a spambot or malicious WWW-crawler.

A ban results in the IP address being blocked from making posts on the entirety of the website.

3 Name: bps!!+u1+mB+S (Admin) : 2015-09-21 21:12 ID:9fayH87y

And, I have removed the ban from the guy that emailed me today at 20.31 CET.
