1. This box is fully transparent.
2. Board-specific backgrounds don't appear on /*/ posts, with the exception of /emo/.
3. Posting password is doesn't save and so posts can't be deleted as a user (may be a user-side issue).
4. Mod buttons have gone.

Whenever I switch boards it asks me to save a password which looks quite long, it's been happening for a month or so but looks like you might be aware of this.

Other lads have already posted all the bugs I experience, but just adding that I experience them too. Using Firefox on both desktop and mobile.

The password thing appears unique to desktop, fairly sure I've been able to delete posts alright from my phone.

Firefox, I assume it's the latest version and Windows 10.
The actual password might mean something to you, it carries on and then has what I believe is a password (A collection of letters and numbers)

Thanks. We haven't actually changed any of the code with the site for a little while (at least not during the time this broke), so I'm still working on the assumption its a browser/security change.

Use uBlock Origin, you silly sausage. ABP is slower, less effective and allows advertisers to pay to circumvent the blocking.

Sometimes I click on a thread and it doesn't show the last 10-15 posts. Even if I click the "last 50 posts" it still doesn't show those last dozen or so posts. It does this on both my phone and my PC (Chrome on both).

It'll be related to how the site is cached in your browser, but refreshing the page fixes it (on my machine) and it only occurs if I've opened the same thread like that before.

I think I have fixes for (3) and (4) now. Just trying to figure out how to roll them out.

One interesting bug I never knew was there - you couldn't actually ever change your posting password. Fixing that too, and making it so that you can actually see it - will help with multiple devices.

That's a very difficult thing to do modm8 - (and yes, I am commenting on a deleted post, because we can both see them).

I am thinking deeply about the ban process though, because as you khow, we have a database of about 10 years+ of bans (comprising precisely 10582 bans) and some of those are starting to get in the way of real people.

I might publish some graphs one day - the early days, where we were open to a lot more countries, had a lot more bans. There are plenty of bans you don't see because of spam/faggotry but I would estimate the rate at less than one per day now.

Over the whole period, that's about right - but as I said, it has slowed down a lot in recent years as we got more selective about which countries could post.

Our birthday is about now. I will dig out the exact date. I registered the domain name quite a while before we launched, and you'll all remember the shenanigans from last month around that anniversary. So it's probably about now-ish.

Oh I definitely know the bans are much more sporadic than they used to be, I bet we were on 5 or 6 bans a day at least during the most populated years. I feel like now the bans are the occasional visitor not understanding how to conduct himself, and that one other lad, you know the one.


I think there is evidence of a birthdate sequestered on the site still.

When you upload a pic and take one with the camera instead of choosing a pre-formatted image, brian borks the aspect ratio. I'm assuming it just doesn't preserve the aspect ratio of an image taken for the purpose of uploading rather than taken first and chosen from your gallery.

We really have to fix this bug. Everyone uses star but (even if I say so myself) some boards look much better in native mode.

Also x 10 - in the past couple of days I have considered the idea of stopping moderators from accidentally banning each other. I used to find it highly amusing that I could get banned (regularly) from my own site, but I can see that not everybody feels the same.

I was just having a teary because I assumed he knew me better than that and it broke my streak mate, I'd have probably banned me too. I'm over it now honest.

I've often thought the report page could have inline preview of the sentry entries related to that IP rather than a background window popping up so you can get a better idea of what is going on, as sometimes people will report a post just because they disagree with it rather than because it's against the rules and on further inspection that poster is an otherwise pretty good contributor or a mod.

Having the option to just click 1 day or Spam instead of typing in 86400 seconds or Spam every time would make the site easier to moderate on a tablet, if you're dabbling with the mod tools.

If anything it just proves that we're not paying enough attention to be playing favourites, and that's a good thing for a community.

This does explain some of the slightly left-field accusations that have been made recently; if a mod has been over-tracking posts. Maybe look at /sentry/ less often, it's fairer if we only use it when we have to, puts us all on a more even keel.

I usually check sentry after a report if I can't discern why I should be banning it at face value and only for that IP (which is, I assume, it's purpose) but I don't use it otherwise. What accusations are you referring to, btw?

It seems like something worth stamping down on, especially if people are trying to use sentry to dox each other or out Americans and Nepal lads as used to happen back in the day, but if that has happened to anyone recently it's slipped through the cracks.
