Critique and Feedback thread Anonymous 02/07/2018 (Wed) 16:43:09 No. 19
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.
Judging by the lack of replies, I'm going to assume there aren't that many complaints about the moderation, but I know there's some stuff that ticks some people off.

You went on a bit of a ramble, but I get what you're saying. I actually discussed this with TSG, and basically he kind of agrees with you: everyone has different moderation methods so you kind of are rolling the dice on bans / deletions / locks. I guess that's an unfortunate side of effect of needing a team for site this big. But no one man could do it. So here we are.

No legit advertiser will touch us a with a 20 ft pole.

The lack of replies is because this thread has been a few times before and the result has always been the same: TGS comes in and yells at us for being mean on a Chan site and then locks the thread. He may or may not wonder shortly after why this site barely gets any donations.

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.
