Bugs you found, and changes I made

Just thought I'd create this thread where you can post any bugs or problems with the site you encounter. And also for me to post any big changes I made.

I will look into adding this functionality to the code. I will have to do some experimenting on how to best implement it as I never used the watchlist myself. But making it so the selected threads gets on top of board pages and overboard is not a bad idea, just have to find a way to make it work in a good way.

Not pissing me off due to below resons.
Fucking lost an hours worth of carefully crafted words.
There's two different view points.
One is in the trees the other is the extremely wide forest.
This place is built on an honor systems, because of trust.
At the moment everything is fine. And it's ONLY fine.
The whole place is democracy based (without someone akin to Atlas) so it takes forever for anything is occur based on policy and rules.
Those rules are a mere formality that everyone is on the same page and is honoring everyone else and is respecting the trust by everybody.
Discipline means jack except in extremes, and due to the speed and amount of users. Which is a large amount /mlpol/ vets. Losing someone on a site of this size hurts enough to be felt.

You're both antagonizing eachother and it's basically fixed with talking, friendship, and some shitposting. Mostly the first two.
So you're in a deadlock because he doesn't know what's going on and has heard jack and seen nothing done on the policy page for the honor contract shit.
Nothing's happening 'cause on the day to day staff wise nothing is and has happened.
The perspectives have to be flipped so a proactive approach would be more valuable.

This could have been resolved years ago, simply by making the words in the policy page true. Whether means amending the policy OR adhering to it IDGAF. And no, 'Nah' isnt an acceptable response.

It is for me, as I do my duties regularly and I do not cause trouble to my fellow poners.

The reason why is that there is zero reason not to change the policy page.
So yes it is 'useless' but that's with any given value. Changing it seems like a watse of time and if it is What the fuck is all the fuss about? Like dude it's three lines at most to reflect the new current situation. I understand throwing of invaders, but if it's useless give me a break.

I have been trying to look for a better oekaki tool, but been unsuccessful in my searches, but been a while since I last looked. I will do a new search and test out the ones I find; could be that a new search will yield something that is usable, or that I will concede and sit down and try to make something. But making one from scratch is less likely as it probably will take a bit more work than desired, and would result in less paint tools than the current one has.
Not sure what you mean regarding implanting a diceroll into a paint tool.

im thinking that perhaps it would work by you placing a dice roll on the regular post box and then being able to tie the results of that roll to a "stamp"(more like placeholder) that you can place on the oekaki, and when you make the post it rolls and places the result both on the oekaki and the text post itself
also being able to quote text from posts and even dice rolls from others in the oekaki might be nice.

4chan's /i/ uses https://github.com/desuwa/tegaki it has:
drawing size from 1x1 to 9999x9999(or at least that is what 4chan allows)
replay animation
50% 100% 200% 400% 800% 1600% zooms
3 pages of colors(no more, not even custom input)
brush size from 1 to 64 pixels
opacity from 0 to 100
add layer, remove layer, merge layers, move layer up, move layer down
25 layer limit, numbers start at 1, not 0(you might want to change that)
new image button that asks width and height of the new pic
open image button that allows you to open images and draw on them
export button that allows you to save the image directly without posting and then saving the result
undo button(also doable with ctrl+z), redo button(also doable with ctrl+y)
close button, finish button
pressure control of size and/or opacity option
preserve alpha option
pencil, pen, airbrush, bucket, tone, pipette, blur, eraser
indicator of it recording the replay

you currently have https://github.com/websanova/wPaint which has:
undo button, redo button, clear button
rectangle and elipse tools(tegaki does not have this)
line and pencil
text imput(tegaki CERTAINLY does not have this)
eraser, bucket
bucket color picker, stroke with selector from 1 to 10, color picker for everything else
if you are to tweak one of them, id go with tweaking tegaki by adding the few tools from wPaint that tegaki lacks.

[diceroll]what im saying by that post is that you should add negative dices, see exotic weapon part of pic, although even is there where no system that utilized negative rolls, having it would be a really neat feature of the system making it capable to go to a minimum of -1999998... i think[/diceroll]

huh, the [diceroll][/diceroll] can't be inputted manually, neat anticheat
and by my newer tests it seems your system isn't happy displaying 0 as a result of 0 dices and also not that euphoric to show negative values, which in my opinion ought to be inputted as [-1d1] and shown as *dice pic*[-1d1 = -1]... perhaps in blue(000088)?
mainly due to the positive=red, negative=blue that magnets have, and the following quite likely will be read as dumb, but could you make it so that either/and a [0d*any number here*(with perhaps a + or -999999)] or a result of 0 has the color 008800?
im mainly saying this because if + is 880000 and - is 000088 that leaves 008800 unused, and that slightly bothers me, but its completely fine if you don't... and to sound greedy on top of dumb(although im quite certain that i have gone WELL beyond the line of what is palatable to request with the following), how about a completely random dice? as in random +/- dice amount, dice digit and +/-0 to 999999 with the rainbow shift of >>6180 as it's color? as for the syntax, how about [rdr&r](which could stand for RainbowDashRoll) and the obvious variants of [rd1&1], [1dr&1], [1d1&r], [rdr&1], [rd1&r], [1dr&r])?, the "&" is to randomize the addition or subtraction since [rdr+r] or [rdr-r] might be wanted, and to be fancy the 6 variants that aren't [rdr&r] could have color shifts based on the other mane 6(+spike?),
and the other 47 variants(iv'e counted them and put them out in a diagram, im sorry) could have color shifts based on other ponies(perhaps 7 of them to the filly gang+little league????)
here is the full unique random dice combination diagram, again sorry for letting my stupidity flow
[rdr&r], [rd1&1], [1dr&1], [1d1&r], [rdr&1], [rd1&r], [1dr&r]
[rdr+r], [rd1+1], [1dr+1], [1d1+r], [rdr+1], [rd1+r], [1dr+r]
[rdr-r], [rd1-1], [1dr-1], [1d1-r], [rdr-1], [rd1-r], [1dr-r]
[+rdr&r], [+rd1&1], , , [+rdr&1], [+rd1&r]
[-rdr&r], [-rd1&1], [-1dr&1], [-1d1&r], [-rdr&1], [-rd1&r], [-1dr&r]
[+rdr+r], [+rd1+1], , , [+rdr+1], [+rd1+r]
[+rdr-r], [+rd1-1], , , [+rdr-1], [+rd1-r]
[-rdr+r], [-rd1+1], [-1dr+1], [-1d1+r], [-rdr+1], [-rd1+r], [-1dr+r]
[-rdr-r], [-rd1-1], [-1dr-1], [-1d1-r], [-rdr-1], [-rd1-r], [-1dr-r]
the 9 "missing" are because it's as unnecessary to mark a regular number of dices as positive as it is to add the random dice, if i'm honest, but i might as well request.

Yep I see there is a bug in the dice system when it comes to displaying negative results, and that a dice roll of zero dices should not be performed. I'll look into the other portions regarding dicerolls you mention, but have to read it more thoroughly.
Thanks for doing the testing and finding the bug. I will fix and update the code so negative dice rolls also shows up.

>and that a dice roll of zero dices should not be performed
i think it should, but it should always spit zero... or perhaps to give it utility, it could spit out some random phrases based on taking the 0 as a one(so only one phrase) and taking the dn+/-N as variables(which could be "r", [0dr&r], etc etc...) and -0 could be sad/gloomy/negative phrases, this also jives well with my request of making it (008800)green, since you know:
>green
this could in turn be taken as a more useful(?) version of the fortune option of 4chan's /s4s/, although me mentioning that might have just made the idea look to you as a "definitely hard pass, if anything perhaps(P.E.R.H.A.P.S) the always 0, but no random phrases, we want zero to none spammadge, thank you very much"
or just to be silly: 0d/-0d(regardless of the other parameters on the roll)= 0 and -0 respectively, and 00d/-00d is the phrase thing(which i might add, both the green color and 0/00 thing would put them in line with an american roulette in terms of aesthetic)
ALSO: i saw that over at 8chan.moe they don't have an oekaki tool, and so after making the request here(>>6231 its me) i made an as poorly written as >>6231 request on there(https://8chan.moe/site/res/134.html#3194)
then later i wrote https://8chan.moe/site/res/134.html#q3213 a more thorough version of >>6235, you might want to check it
for among the things i requested over there is for the moe devmod to get in contact with you so that you can work together on the oekaki tool instead of ether of you having to do it by themselves, that being said he will be occupied with the 2.6 update for a while, so you should talk to him and see when he is available
oh and according to both the 8moe devmod and wolfram alpha 1d0 should give 0 as the answer(https://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=1+0+face+dice+roll+chance), currently does [1d0 = 1] that being said wolfram doesn't give me anything for 0d(says the number of dice should be a positive integer), i'd still say the result should be zero though because you are rolling zero sided nothing(which only different from a zero sided something by the fact that is nothing, it is still 0 sided)
[16d0 = 16] [1d1+1 = 2] [2d1 = 2] and a few tests i did on moe but not here
...and a few more things that just came to my mind:
could you add the shift JIS art font and the [aa][/aa] selector?(either with the Mona or MS PGothic(MS Pゴシック) fonts(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mona_(font))), and remember that the line height should be 1.1 on the css for the [aa] rule(at least that is how 8moe has it configured)
a selector [wolf][/wolf] that applies the wolfentsein font to the text with the color 4D5D53(Feldgrau) to be the counterpart of the [doom][/doom] text they have over at 8moe?, and i must say that i would not be opposed to doomtext here as well(i don't lean one way or another for the [moe][/moe] sparkle effect they have there, i mean i don't dislike it but i also wont insist on it being added here)
another selector that changes the text color to 6a1de2 AND shrinks it by the same amount as red text(what you call heading on the help menu) grows it, so reg=1.0em, redtext=1.1em and tinytext=0.9em?(its something 8kun has that here doesn't and since i suggested it on 8kun during the loli fiasco as small text, i see no problem requesting this of you) and id say [t][/t] for tiny text is a good selector
testing (((echoes))) and ///slope\\\(like ((())) but for chinese), and i must say, since you can change the color of the text here, how about also changing the color of its background?(like what those selectors do, at least on 8moe)
testing LaTeX support \LaTeX $$\LaTeX$$ [$]\LaTeX[/$] (i personally think that [$]...[/$] should be the way to go to implement it)
and i think you should link to here trough the ponerpics header(like you do from here to there), although i freely admit that this might be my dumbest request yet
thanks again for your time.
