On a former chan, when raided or when something would go completely FUBAR on a board, we would go into emergency mode. This would include raining horse cocks in java script, a flashing background that would cause seizures, and music https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0A13GCXIB-4 replace with this pic obviously.

>Raining horse cocks in javascript
>Flashing background that would cause seizures
>Play music

It seems like this would just give the raiders attention and make posting hard for everyone else. Raids aren't really an issue; we can just ban the raiders and delete their posts. We can do it pretty quickly imo, so raids shouldn't disturb the actual users that much.

Is there something wrong with the flag system?
I just flew from my college in Colorado my parents' house in Florida, and now both my phone and my laptop have been displaying leaf flags.
I'm not exactly tech-savvy, but is there anything I can do to fix this?

I don't know how moderation works or how feasible any of this is, just a few uninformed suggestions.

-mods receive report notifications on their phones (could get annoying)
-mods click something once to activate banhammer, click thread/post to immediately remove and ban the poster
-create forbidden posts, so if some huge wall of text is being copy-pasted you can add it to a list of posts that result in an autoban
-shadowbanning, where you're banned but you have no idea because you're the only one that sees your posts. Seems like it would be hard to implement on a chan, and I wouldn't want them stealing our gets, but it's devious as fuck

What if mods just stickied any thread that they deemed genuine as soon as they see it? Or rather gave it some new invisible quality that makes it so it won't 404 in the face of anything but another protected thread. Then if we got raided in the wee hours of the morn by three autists, with forty proxies each, and EVERY staff member happened to be asleep, they still wouldn't be able to do shit besides kill their own threads and maybe one or two threads that were never approved.

We do not have a desire to permanently ban people if it can be helped. This is because one shitpost does not a lifetime of exile deserve, having said that, bans will be issued for breaking the rules we as a community agreed to. manipulation of polls, misrepresentation, and other shilling will not be tolerated. We allow Tor exit nodes so that you can feel safe visiting what could be considered a website with controversial content. The occasional shill attack and spam is just a consequence thereof, and will be dealt with by staff if necessary. This was a staff wide decision; however please know your shitposts will not get you permabanned. We the staff are counting on you to adhere to rule 10.

We will also be expanding into new boards, please note this is not a division of the people who make up this glorious website, merely the addition of designated board for certain topics, like porn. Cross board posting will never be a bannable offense, please do not report people for posting off topic, it's the shills we need to look for.

Speaking of staff we are now taking janitor applications at mlpolowner@gmail.com, please submit a short resume including any mod experience. We're also looking for anyone with experience with php and JavaScript, to help build this website

- add an edit function to posts
- increase the visible postcount of pinned threads to 5
- make pinned threads that gets posted in move like normal threads
- increase the amount of visible threads per page to 10 or 15
- readd the move to top and move to bottom arrows
- autopin genuine threads to make them raidproof
- add a picture only captcha for new threads/posts
- create an official site discord or similar chat software
- add additional optional flags (for instance for political allignment)
- add an autoban feature to pictures of people who have been banned in case of reposting
- make the archive easier to reach or perhaps just turn it into a board

As for the editing of posts, it could present an issue with people who are shitposting and then editing their posts, in my opinion.

Increasing the visible amounts of posts for stickies may or may not be possible. I'll link a developer to this thread.

>make pinned threads that get posted in move like normal threads

I think this already happens, I'll try it out. I don't think we'll ever get more than 3 stickies, so personally I don't think that this is very useful.

>increase the amount of visible threads per page to 10 or 15

I'll link a developer.

>readd the move to top or bottom arrows

You could just press the "home" or "end" keys on your keyboard

>create an official discord or similar chat software

My views on IRCs and Discords for chats are as follows: It simply fragments the userbase. Any post made on Discord or IRC is a post that could be made here on the image board. If we have a lot of users one day, I'd be up for it. That decision lies in the administrators though, I have no say in anything of this.
