It's spam, just like the other single post threads with screencaps of posts about Tom Hiddleston.

I understand your concern. If we could make 1 post threads get pushed off and removed before threads with replies it would make it a non-issue.

I think tht would require new code though. Mentioned the idea to bps. No reply yet. For now maybe just try asking /tv/ to use a single thread?

fun fact: the top 3 sources of site activity are /dqn/ in general, the tom hiddleton general on /tv/ and alien spammers.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Suggestion/Bug fix: Closing tags at the end of a post (1)

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?

[Handheld] The mobile reader support and requests thread (73)

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.

70 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2016-06-20 12:58 ID:6wP2+QOe


This suggestion should be implemented. Using frames in 2016 really is quite silly. It should be trivial to use drop down boxes to navigate the different boards, and it would generally improve browsing on smartphones and tablets.

71 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2016-06-21 02:06 ID:Heaven

>Using frames in 2016 really is quite silly.

Give me a reason that isn't "well it's the standard".

72 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2016-06-21 10:32 ID:6wP2+QOe

Links open within the frame. That breaks functionality if attempting to open a YouTube link from a mobile device.

Frames scroll independently from each other. This makes navigation unnecessarily difficult for users on a device with lower screen resolutions.

Someone on the general board suggested this, and I thought it was a good idea.

5 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2016-05-25 00:57 ID:Heaven

Yes, but Kareha doesn't use a database, it uses flat text files.

That doesn't really scale well, does it? I know it's not likely we'll get that much more traffic, but it seems better to think about it now rather than regret it later.

You could write a script in python to scrape it though and add to maybe a mongodb or sqlite

12 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2016-06-02 06:33 ID:Heaven

For the imageboard? Sure wakaba isn't really all that great. For the textboards? Hell no, kareha cannot be beat especially with the few custom scripts 4-ch has.

>kareha cannot be beat


14 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2016-06-24 23:35 ID:Heaven

A flat database isn't bad for a bbs if it's separate files and formats. Karehas database is the html thread files, though.

Here's an idea for how 4Channel can become an NNTPChan frontend while still keeping images disabled (7)

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?

3 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2015-10-20 21:58 ID:Heaven

Clearly DQN should be more VIP Quality (33)

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!

30 Name: bps!!+u1+mB+S (Admin) : 2015-12-25 04:12 ID:miAJHmVv

Thanks for the feedback guys. According to >>18 the feature is more unpopular than it is popular, so I am inclined to hold back for now. At any rate, I think that >>23 closely matches my opinion on the matter.

My conclusions so far:

  1. if any of the two features are implemented, it would only be on DQN
  2. both soko and shuffle, if implemented, would only force to position 10 and randomly place between position 1 and 10, respectively. That is, it would not apply to the entire thread list.
  3. soko appears to be more open to abuse, by being repeatedly used to silence a particular thread. I don't particularly relish the necessity to police this, either.

31 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2015-12-26 00:54 ID:x62LSCuk

>soko appears to be more open to abuse, by being repeatedly used to silence a particular thread

I'm not sure if there's anything to silence on DQN

32 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2016-01-02 03:22 ID:Heaven

Since "Nuke DQN" is the most popular choice in that poll, maybe this would be a better idea: If someone posts on DQN with "nuke" in the link field, nuke the board.
