Polo Shitting Up Boards

ID:sRIsH+fT No.116097 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Why does no one do anything about this? All he does is bump his threads until they 404 so that he can promote his chats. And the saddest part is that I usually see girls in his chat to when I tell Polo to fuck off. Apparently they don't know that he records girls and then sells the footage.

Strict moderation

ID:KnU+Lcyf No.563749 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
"Moot killed 4chan months ago with over-moderation. It's just another no-fun-zone forum now."

I agree with this anon. 4chan has become just a mainstream YAY LETS ALL CUDDLE cute little forum except for /b/ (which is just shit now anyway). Instead of a place where people could post freely like they always have, 4chan is slowly turning into Gaia v2.0

The current mods are completely NOT in touch with what goes on on 4chan. on /sp/ we have people getting banned for memes that have lasted for years, people get banned for saying nigger outside of /b/ (come on, really, REALLY? Just think how ridiculous that is), there's rampant janitors who report/semi-ban people for trifles, or after an argument or whatever. Things are up to a mod's judgement, and that judgement is flawed.

I prefer the earlier days where people randomly would get banned for nonsensical reasons, it was hilarious, anyone could get axed for a laugh. It wasn't fair, but it wasn't fucking oppressive like the current moderation is. I'd rather get banned on a funny whim than because I "offended" someone by just saying whatever comes to mind, like people used to be able to on 4chan.

Dear moot there is no reason that pont reaction images should be banned on any other board more that there is a reason to ban anime images on a non anime boards. If you continue with this irrational behavior under the impression that mlp haters make up anything more than 5% of the 4chan userbase which couldn't give a fuck about reaction images and are not manchildren like /v/ and /b/ userbases, you will face serious consequences.

Signed, /mlp/

Why isn't there a must read sticky on /a/ that prevents shit like this?

Drop Cloudflare and CAPTCHA, institute JSON in AJAX and heuristic spam detection instead

ID:8nZ6WJW3 No.140951 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
Might I suggest 4chan drop cloudflare and replace it with AJAX and an assortment of security measures. Also please substitute a heuristic spam detection system instead of using CAPTCHA.

Cloudflare is not intended for a site such as 4chan because their boasted CDN only caches static content which on a site that purges content so rapidly only accounts for a fraction of the content, whereas the dynamic content comes directly from the server. On top of that, their algorithm for finding high-demand static content on the server is flawed which makes it point to 404'd files. Their CDN also disrupts the https connection due to this because a website is only secure as its weakest link. Their security can easily be replaced with a few security measures, and their optimization would better be implemented using JSON in an AJAX implementation. I believe this way the site would be a lot faster and more secure.

As for CAPTCHA, there are countless works explaining the downfall of CAPTCHA. A heuristic spam detection system is always better for security and for the user. A thousand things can be done such as adding the latest definitions of spam bots, timing inputs, and setting up bot traps.

I know replacing Cloudflare's security may seem like a daunting task, but given their track record for everything else, I don't trust their security. Besides, they aren't using magical security. They're using the same current security that's available to everyone.

Banned because you didn't know a url, word, or phrase was not allowed on 4chan.

ID:Rl1n+IPE No.258738 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
Is there a list of all these urls/words/phrases that will get you auto banned? If not why doesn't m00t make one! It's a bit retarded to get banned for posting a link or a certain word/phrase when you have no warning that said website or word/phase will result in a ban!

Visibility of moderation

ID:bqU3ZxiS No.105837 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
A topic that I see brought up from time to time is that which concerns more visible moderation. I have a few ideas that I think would help this cause, and give a better sense of what's allowed to be posted without putting up "rules stickies" on every board.

- Lock threads instead of deleting them
The issue with deleting threads outright is that it provides no visibility, many people might not even realise there was a thread there that got deleted and they'll make a similar thread later on. By leaving the thread visible but unable to be posted in, people will see that those topics are things that should not be posted. A brief lock reason in red text could be added next to the lock symbol (saying for example "off topic" or "not worksafe"). To prevent locked threads from cluttering the board, perhaps they could be moved to a dedicated page, placed as the last page in the list at the bottom with a trashbin icon instead of a page number. When it becomes full threads will fall off the bottom and be deleted as normal, like a sort of short archive of threads you shouldn't make. In the case of NSFW, the images would be deleted along with the thread lock. Obviously some threads should still be deleted outright (CP comes to mind)

Global rule 6 is completely subjective and silly.

ID:7mL9aUZz No.770091 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
>The quality of posts is extremely important to this community. Contributors are encouraged to provide high-quality images and informative comments.

This is such loose wording and basically equates to "any thing the mods/janitors don't like." I don't see the point of this rule other than making it easy for mods to just ban whoever they want for posting something they dislike. Who decides what "quality" is? It's completely subjective and ill defined.
