Hey guys, I want to raise a little attention on a problem that, at least on my computer, is pretty prevalent.
Every time I make a post and see a spelling mistake or something similar, I press the percentage button to cancel the post being made.
Now, it may be due to my shitty internet connection, but the feature never seems to work. I mean, it says the post was discarded, but when I update the thread I find it was put up anyway.
Does anyone else have this problem?

I vote we allow edit on /oat/. It's on /pony/ and it's good for this type of thing.

/oat/ has too many arguments. I vote no


File: 1395339520981.png (283.69 KB, 786x1239, dashie44.png)

But it always comes with a line that says "XX editted this post on YY" so it won't hurt your arguing. In fact, it will give you something new to argue about!

Mature content on /oat/ BatBane!FXDOOMLlfE 13376[View][Last 50 Posts]

/oat/ is no stranger to mature topics, I was wondering about the staffs current position on the idea of letting /oat/ have the same abilities when it comes to posting mature content on /oat/ as other boards such as /anon/ having to tag any thread made that will host those kinds of pictures and direct likes so they may be hidden to the posters who have not opted in to viewing them.

Do you think at some point soon or in the future you will change the rules to allow this to take place?

What do you mean "make one"? Like, make a fork of Tinyboard? Or is there some sort of plugin API?

just a couple things pls Anonymous 13578[View]

/r/ing new sticky on /anon/ to enlighten new users about Mature-tagging/mature threads.

I've seen a good few people start porn threads without the tag and not even know how to find the mature threads.

Also it would be cool if the thread watcher limit was bumped up.

Add trigger warning field/checkbox Anonymous 13529[View]

Seems like people on here talk about politics, rape, doctors, and any other assortment of triggering things. Would it be possible to add a #trigger tag that users can filter out, similar to the mature content tag?

Showcase or "theme" threads Skybrook!8MDcALmdno 13521[View]

Where do themed showcase threads go? Like "giraffes" or "ovi" or "tea parties". I'd put them in /art/ but I'm worried a lot of up and coming new content won't end up in there, just because the artist doesn't visit this board. That means we'd have to go elsewhere, to certain terrible places on the net in order to even see the stuff we want to. But maybe that's not the case? Is it O.K. to post pictures by someone else in /art/ just to showcase them? Or does it just go in /anon/?

>Where do themed showcase threads go?
There is /pic/ for this purpose, but now it's practically dead.
Yeah, I would do it in /art/, it's a good place for that (unless your theme is related to some fetish - then obviously go to /anon/)

>Is it O.K. to post pictures by someone else in /art/ just to showcase them?

I don't see why not, especially if those pictures are done well.

>new content won't end up in there, just because the artist doesn't visit this board.

That's true - fandom is dying, content creators are burning out, every image board is getting even slower, bronies are too lazy to learn how draw and pic related.
If you want place with many people then visit http://derpiboo.ru/
It's not THAT terrible, and a lot of people use it already.

!!Fluttershy 13559

If you're showcasing other people's work or looking for new pictures /oat/ would be the best choice, unless like >>13525 said it's nsfw then /anon/ would be best.

If it's your work you could post it in /art/ if you like, but know that it's a very slow board. You may not get a response.

/pic/ has been more or less retired as it wasn't used much.

Macil!/5s/Techmk ## Admin 13205

I'm a cypherpunk and privacy advocate. Widespread encryption is one of the best ways to help counter surveillance of many forms. Lots of people spend a lot of time here, talk a lot, and say private things anonymously on occasion, which I find to be more than enough reason to embrace encryption. Also I'd rather not have it be that tripcodes and moderator credentials could be easily stolen when people use wifi.

The only times I've ever seen internet connections that couldn't use HTTPS were connections through an insecurely misconfigured wifi paywall, or connections that were being man-in-the-middle-attacked by an attacker who couldn't get sslstrip to work right. It's not common and usually there's something wrong going on that really should have attention brought to it, so I'm not eager to hide the symptoms and give in to possible attackers by allowing things to work insecurely. If you truly must deal with an internet connection that blocks HTTPS, then there are tunneling solutions that you should look into rather than using sites over insecure protocols instead.

As a minor sidenote, there are performance benefits when HTTPS is used in browsers that support SPDY, including Firefox and Chrome, which is a nice added bonus.

Ah, found the culprit. Apparently one of the mods embedded a script via raw HTML posting, and once it hit the 2nd page, the script attempted to call it through ajax to make up for the mature threads and thus blanked the page. This can be fixed by one of the mods by removing the script tag in the screencapped thread.

this board is for non-srs topics and all that. just for people who just play around and make lighthearted jokes and dont take themselves too serious

all guns and political (or whatever) boring stuff can remain in /oat/ like it does

it'll be all, FUN, FUN, FUN!

What the fuck did you just fucking say about chan culture, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit about muh culture over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.

/general/ board? Anonymous 13242[View]

As anyone who regularly browses /anon/ knows, we have a FUCKTON of "general" threads. Let me paint a picture:

We have recurring separate generals for all of the following: Scat, piss, farts, diapers, and "ass worship".

Then there's milky, fluffy, unbirthing, satyrs, general clop (basically massive porn dumps without a specific topic).

I don't have a problem with generals, there are some I actually write for, but I feel like they really clog up /anon/ and it would make more sense for them to have their own board.

And not only that, but some of them probably scare off newcomers, which would be a good thing if we were /mlp/, but we're not, and we need more traffic, at least a little more.

If we moved all the generals to a new, specific board, I think discussion about things such as music, video games, movies/TV, the actual show, etc. would thrive on /anon/.

And generals from /oat/ would be welcome too, such as tulpa threads or /b/ and friends.

Do you think this is a good/bad idea?

Hey, there are two threads I reported on /anon/ like yesterday because they are basically generals that some newfag made before the previous ones had gotten anywhere near the bump limit, and they need to be locked/deleted. It's been days. Can you do something about it? Here are the threads that need to go:

Alright, so, my apologies if this has already been addressed, or if nobody cares.
I'm an archivist for one of the roleplay canons on /rp/. However, for some time I haven't been able to properly save some of the older threads, because the thumbnails are mysteriously missing.
Upon rightclick -> reload image, it just flickers and continues to not be there. Furthermore, rightclick -> view image leads to a 404 page.
What is the problem here? Can it be fixed? Can I help to do so? If not, when can I expect it will be fixed?
