Let's catch up LtBarclay##FuufeZ 09/03/2018 (Mon) 16:17:30 No. 312 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Hey guys. Been a bit. Let me fill you in on a few things. First off, about that new admin that was supposed to introduce himself... he went ghost. Hasn't said a word to me since paying for the new server. I don't know what spooked him (if I had to guess, it was lynxchan). So it looks like I'm back in charge for the time being.

About the site. Here are some recent changes that took place today:
Mobile support has been further improved. Dates / times removed from posts, catalog fits more posts horizonally, favorite boards only show on homepage / board list, logo hidden on all pages, few other little fixes.
"Last 50 posts" is back. It's basic, but it was requested, and the best I can do. I tried real hard to get "expand thread" working, but just couldn't.
Oekaki is back.
Contact / Feedback were merged into Meta.
/R/ random board has been added.
Side catalog now properly remembers it has been closed and remains closed until you open it again (finally).
Two proper themes have been added A StufferDB and a Mewch clone. If you are any good at css, I'm definitely looking for more!
Quick-reply box no longer opens off screen on mobile much more usable now.

I know there were alot of posts and threads about the new site and things kind of got lost in the shuffle. If you're still here with us and still have gripes / suggestions, post em here.

This so much, there was literally no reason to get rid of the date/timestamp on every post. It helps considering certain links expire in just a few days
>>334
Please can we have the date and time stamp back?
I like bbw

If you're talking about the tooltip that showed date/time from the catalog, yeah I was bothered when that was removed too.
Same with filename tooltips although clicking can give a roundabout way to see the whole filename in that case

Hey, how about a thread for quick suggestions. Mainly on how to better things from the previous bbw-chan. I'll go first: Working ability to hide threads!

Can users delete their own posts? I fucked up formatting for a post, thought I deleted it because even though it said I'm not allowed to delete posts the post vanished, made a replacement post, and now I've doubleposted on /bbwdraw/.
>>379
Normally you can if you catch it quick enough. Deleted it for you.
Please open a preview when a spoiler is clicked. And only then open the big image, if it's clicked again.
Most spoilers hold boring crap worthing no wait until the HD image is loaded (just to see it was a boring crap again).
How much server space we have? Is it possible to allow .zip upload, not single images? (Of course, those .zip must contain allowed file types only).

Site improvement thread LtBarclay##FuufeZ 08/06/2018 (Mon) 06:33:01 Id:7a70df No. 1 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
So here we are. It's a whole new world of nodejs and css. Things aren't quite the way the should be. Here's the deal explorers. We all need to pitch in and document / try to fix the issues with the front end for lynxchan.
Here's what's been identified so far:
RSS Feeds break with '&' in post titles: Developer notified
Post form was too big and shitty: combined elements, disabled always-on captcha. Now we just enable automatically if floods happen, and popular boards will early 404 threads that look like spam (not replied to, already deep into page depth).
Mobile support sucks: Yes. Using 'desktop view' on chrome mobile mitigates some of these issues but that's crap solution. Note that mewch.net currently has the best implementation of mobile support for lynxchan, but runs a lot of custom addons. I'm not sure we have the collective programming knowledge to come up with something like that, and I think some clever css will do. But I need help with that.
No post hover: We need someone to convert the old post-hover script we had for lynxchan, but this is coming (hopefully).
No boards on top: You can use the star next to a boards title to add it to the top bar... but we could also just put them up there by default I suppose.
Hashed file names: Yeah... sorry.
Actual other themes: This is low priority but when we have the engine running like we want, certainly it will be easy to get some creative minds together on this.
Thumbnail quality is poor: this should be fixed now

could we possibly get Date/Time k back? It REALLY helped w/ knowing when MAB & WeTransfer links were dead...
>>321
huh? I can see the date/time of your post....
>>326
...yeah, literally found out I could see em if I just rotated my smartphone after I made that post. lol
A thing: typing in "bbw-chan.nl" doesn't work as a URL.

You need to put the HTTPS in front of it, right now, and it treats the non-HTTPS as a 404 error. You might want to redirect that, somehow.

Report vs Global Report Anonymous 10/06/2018 (Sat) 03:21:10 Id:b7610e No. 335 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
What the hell is the difference between Report and Global Report? Do we need two buttons to report spam?

Also am I the only one finding those captchas damn near impossible to solve? (ATTENTION HUMANS: I AM ALSO A HUMAN, AND NOT A ROBOT)

The crazy thing is there's not even a captcha when posting, but we have to fill out a captcha when reporting botspam? How does that make sense? Can we not get ReCaptcha or some other system that can at least attempt to detect automatically if the thing on the other end is a human like me (as mentioned, I am a human)?

>wanting anything to do with Google
You really think the type of people in this community aren't just gonna quit and just focus on Pisscord, Tumbler, or a different Chan instead of staying and having to click on pics for a couple minutes until Google lets them make a single post and having to start it all over again the next thing they want to reply to even if it's just mere seconds from their last post? All they need to do is get more people on hand to handle clean up and start up the normal captcha when the bot starts back up.

>>>/bbwdraw/26805
There was never a rule against posting loli outside /bbwalt/; the only thing that's stuck there is the general. The reason why it was never quarantined beyond that is because there's so many that you never really know from Japan having a huge habit of making tiny women and voluptuous lolis and as for the threads; there's been dozens of them since the general being locked away that only really get art for its main characters that a lot of people don't realize are 15 and under.

You wanna prevent something like this, make a rule against single character threads for everyone; they're always about someone that already has a thread for its series.

Oekaki app no longer works Anonymous 08/20/2018 (Mon) 20:51:11 Id:4040e7 No. 259 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Hello,

I do not normally post much on here, so forgive me if I am in the wrong section.

I would like to draw in the oekaki board, but the app isn't working anymore. Is it being replaced?

I am not sure if Shii painter is still around... If the current one is getting replaced, may we get one with an eye dropper tool?

Thank you.
We'll be working on getting that back.

Thread Hiding Anonymous 07/03/2018 (Tue) 23:11:26 No. 16 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
When thread hiding was first introduced, I was all like, "great, now I can go to /bbwalt/ and see the fetishes that arouse me while easily skipping the ones that disgust me, or hide chubby threads on /bbw/ since I'm a supersize-or-go-home man", but shortly thereafter I realized that hiding threads is *completely useless*.

Why? Because the thread will be unhidden the very next time you visit. I don't even use private browsing mode to come here, and I come here at least every few days. It still forgets whatever threads I've hidden.

Please, whoever is going to run this place from now on, can you try to fix things so that hidden threads stay hidden? This has to be something that can be put in the cookie, right?
Is this fixed with lynxchan?
>>475
Yep, press the circle X button.

Critique and Feedback thread Anonymous 02/07/2018 (Wed) 16:43:09 No. 19 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Mods I'm sure people would be more inclined to donate something if you listened to your community a little more. From what I've seen in previous threads on /booty, anyone saying something remotely negative is essentially playing with dice as to whether or not they will be banned, regardless of whether it is an opinion or not.

Also some added transparency would be nice, like why are some threads bumplocked and others aren't? And what happened to the AKU thread? Personally I think each board would benefit from some kind of meta thread, but that's up to you I suppose. I'm not even sure how you will take this honest bit of critique, but I hope that you will at least read it and see if you find something you agree with instead of just dismissing it solely on the grounds that it is a critique. It's purpose is to help, not to defame, or attack. I sincerely hope you take this critique, and the critique of others into consideration, as I expect you cannot hope to have the respect and money of the people whom you seldom listen to and respect, if that is indeed the case anyway.

I hope that other's can also express their opinions within this thread, and also discuss their personal opinions and beliefs upon how the site is run themselves, and under what conditions they would consider donating.

If nothing else, you could see who would be interested in advertising on this site, similar to other image boards which are not donation run.

I'm very unhappy with the moderation for a number of reasons that I can't put to appropriate words right now due to being sleepy af.

In short though:
>Stop using the "this isn't 4chan" excuse and own up to the way that people tend to behave here, rather than trying to suppress it, because this is an imageboard, and the majority of the community is from 4chan/8chan, and always has been. If you wanted a reddit hugbox, you could've just as easily remade the site as a subreddit and had that kind of community. None of this is to say that people should be irredeemable pricks at all times, but you seem to have unrealistic expectations of the community here, and you need to rein those in and accept the reality.

>Stop enabling people acting like turbocunts on either side of an argument. That means not favoring literal autistic manchildren like TheDarkMaster, or the anons overreacting to his posts or insulting him, either; they're both contributing to derailing threads, so fucking ban them both and let them sit on the sidelines until they learn to behave. Use ban messages and make this crystal clear when you do it.


>Stop with the aggressive enforcement of "if you don't like it, hide it." Everyone knows to hide threads they're not interested in, but expecting people to hide every post, every image, and every thread they dislike is completely unrealistic. Someone's going to complain, especially if shitposters are bombarding threads with low quality trash or frequently posting new threads rather than bumping their old ones


>Don't clog up the front page of a board with multiple stickies. Compile them all into one sticky, or a sticky with 1-2 replies so that they're all fully visible.


I probably have a lot more shit to complain about, but those are the big things that immediately come to mind. I'm really not looking for an argument here, or a rebuttal in the form of "UM, NO SWEETIE, WE KNOW BEST," but as a former moderator from old bbw-chan I thought my two cents might be worth something. I only really post on or pay attention to /bbwalt/ and /bbwdraw/ though, to be fair.
Is there a reason why you can't post the same pic in other threads? I feel like there's no need for such restriction.
>>447
Because no one wants to see the same pic all over the place.
Any chance of going back to unix filenames? Hashes drive my shit up the wall.
>>472
Nope, sorry, that's just baked into lynxchan.
