At least thrice a day the whole tor node gets banned because someone triggered a mod on the ukraine-russia thread. There's so many generals it would be useful to implement thread-specific bans.

The tor node shouldn't be disabled for anything less than a cp raid, and even then it shouldn't be down for more than an hour or so.

Text colors are made for the dark theme but when you hover over tiles in the catalog, they turn light blue. Greentext and links in particular become unreadable.
This is the case for Dark, Dark Red (the default theme), Dark Solarized, and Dark Spooky.
Pictured: Dark Red vs LainchanJP (likely the intended behavior)

OP that little bit of power is the most influence the mods will ever have, taking it away from them would just be cruel.

Before the split is was well known that Zer0 paid the server costs out of his own pocket, however I don't recall the mods ever stating who has been paying for the servers since August.

Do all the mods contribute a small amount or does one mod cover the whole cost? Whatever the answer, I think the users have a right to know this information.

they answered this before somewhere, one mod mostly pays for it but the team chips in where they can. there is no plans for any kind of monetization of the site anytime soon and they'd sooner ask users for donations if funding ever becomes an issue, but it hasn't yet.

Why can't I edit my post if I made a grammatical mistake. Nothing is worse then writing a effort post rereading it and seeing a grammatical mistake that undermines your argument. I understand that the individual is responsible for upkeeping their grammar but some of us are challenged in these aspects, even if it's just a typos not seen. So basically what stops this site from letting anons to edit their post?

 No.19565

>>19562
to prevent bad faith editing?

 No.19566

you can delete it and make it again

 No.19567

I would be in favor of an option (or even enforced) preview button like slashcode has, but I don't care enough to spend time on it. Actual editing after posting, I'm against. You say it, you stick by it. I don't rly care abt ur grammar, and I do care abt ppl editing their posts after they get called out on wrongness. If there ever is an edit button, there should also be a "see previous versions" button next to a label that shows edit times.

 No.19573

Proofread your posts if that bothers you. Hell, type them in a word processor first so it will catch errors.

 No.19574

>>19562
If editing was a thing it should only be allowed before someone has replied to your post, once someone has replied to the post it should be unchangeable. Besides people can already delete their own posts.

This is insanity. Why are we allowing meme extensions on our site? Especially if they are a capitalist scheme??!?!?!?!

Legit pic extensions are:
>png, jpg, jpeg, gif, bmp
and p. much that's it.

Mind you, this site is not yet compatible (to my knowledge) with
>.apng
which is the open-source alternative to .gif.

So yeah, whenever I click on a fucking .jfif file my browser (chrome) automatically downloads it instead of enlarging that shit like a regular pic.

Kek this was literally the reason for being of the board. A good chunk of the community was people getting mass purged from Reddit, like when some subreddit banned cat girls or whatever. Many other such cases.

I know many things about the board you do not know. For instance, could you tell me about the action front?

this is a demonstration that I have been here a while because I know this and you don’t

4chan has a system where unofficially all bans last 3 days. I have only posted one shit post and my most recent ban was like 3 weeks. I'm concerned I will get banned for a shot ton of time and not be able to use the site when I accidentally do something mods don't like. 3 days should be enough if it is enough for 4chan and mods here are liberal with bans.

Bans that last over three days are pointless anyway while posting with proxies and tor is enabled. Nobody is going to abide by a six week ban when literally 10 seconds of effort can avoid said ban. On 4chan it's different because you have to reset your router each time, which is an inconvenience as we all know. Also I have no idea why the mods even bother with permabans, most other chans with a tor node don't issue permabans at all because of the futility of it all.

By now, personally, I must have accumulated a few years worth of bans on VPNs, but it doesn't matter to me because I only use each IP once anyway. Unless you're an idfag like Bee and leninhat, it's impossible for the mods to enforce a ban and tbh it's kinda funny to watch them try to do it.
OP I agree with your point in principle, but I don't think bans are that big of a deal at all. If the mods really wanted to discourage rule breaking posts they could either hire more janitors or block posting with proxies and tor.

 No.19455

Yeah, my main IP is perpetually banned it seems, the ban seems to renew itself automatically unless I pissed off a Jannie that hard that they do it manually each time, but now I'm relegated to phone posting to be able to post on this site.

 No.19457

how do you expect jannies to maintain a stiffy with such low ban durations? it's already getting hard to rub one out since users stopped complaining so much.

 No.19458

Moderation time permitting I think even lower ban durations might sometimes be worthwhile. A ban of an hour or two isn't even worth the effort of resetting your router on a board as slow as /leftypol/, but still serves as a bit of an annoyance if you've already got a message typed up and ready to post. If you've been banned for moderate idiocy and just need to be gently reminded to be less of an idiot in the future, that's about the right level to target.

But of course it depends on the reason for the ban in question.

 No.19493

>>19452
You are right in the sense that if anything the small number of people responsible for 90% of disruption, bait, flooding the place with shit, etc. are not banned hard enough. Improvement would not necessarily require more organic robots (there could be technical solutions) but it could help.
