Issues are mostly allowed to be worked out between the users, with moderator interaction coming in when necessary, if I understand.

That's not happening. I don't know why, but this is always how it's been, more or less, and from what I know, I don't see that trend changing anytime soon. And hey, when the moderators intervened with my legitimate issues, it was lazily dealt with, painting me and my stalker with a broad brush, and I had to yell at the admin for a little while to get taken even remotely seriously.

I don't like dealing with jerks, and the mods just won't. I'm not going to put in the effort to try and hassle everyone, all the way up to the top, to get issues of common sense dealt with without it being done lazily and without me being insulted (and apologized to later). This has happened multiple times now. I love you guys to death, but this is not one of your strong suits. Friends of mine and I have had many conversations with the administrator about this topic, and the issue keeps occurring.

So can someone please add a blocking feature to the website?

Which I appreciate. I'm just concerned you've got the spine of a cheese string.
As much as I want this, I think you should scrap the project on the spot if you personally believe it's wrong.

It's not that I believe that it's wrong, and I don't have the spine of a cheese string. I offered to do this out of my own compassion, and I was never asked to do so personally. Check the top of the thread :P
It's not so much that I think it's wrong. I don't think it's wrong. I think there are many better ways to go about doing what needs to be done, and I personally don't like filters, but I won't withhold the work that I've already done simply because my own personal beliefs go against what I'm doing.
It's not as if this is a major issue. It's not like I'll do something like fuck over the environment for money, just because. I wouldn't do that, I fight for my own beliefs. This just isn't worth fighting against. Especially when there's such an overwhelming want for one.

That doesn't mean you've got to be the one to do it. I don't know how you can say you don't think it's wrong, and then that your personal beliefs go against what you're doing. It means the same thing.
I swear I'm not arguing just to argue, but you've got a really screwed up moral sense. It's genuinely concerning, and bizarre.

when I say personal beliefs, I mean something more along the lines of I would never use it myself.
If I were normal, and could think straight, I'd probably say that I was neutral on the subject of a filter.
Mind you, I haven't slept in 56 or so hours, so anything I say is kinda…thoughtless.

I have a moral code, I swear, it's just more along the lines of pleasing others, rather than myself.

You advocate people ignoring other people when things can't get solved. This is no different. People are going to get ignored whether or not you have a filter. A filter is just a way to make things easier for everyone. If a user not involved doesn't want to hear it, he doesn't have to. And in addition, this makes it so that people can't snipe at each other, an no mistakes can be made in people ignoring each others' posts, mistakes that wind up making people angry or more annoyed.

It dissolves a lot of tension. And really, if someone is going to filter another person, they were never going to talk to them anyway. Not in a way that wouldn't be absolutely agonizing or unpleasant for all involved.

>It dissolves a lot of tension.

Sure, until people realize that they can start some drama by announcing it every time they filter someone.

A person's moral beliefs shouldn't be a reason for them not to do something. Some of the sweetest happiness a person can feel is just in the act of making other's happy.

"A person's moral beliefs shouldn't be a reason for them not to do something"
That's the only reason to do or not do anything. "I should make others happy" is a belief itself, but when it goes against everything else you believe it goes from noble to crazy.

I think you may be taking the circumstances out of context. This isn't Legendary deciding to fight for something he doesn't believe in for the sake of preserving human happiness ala Joe Biden not taking a stance against gay marriage, he's building a script to allow people on MlPchan to block people who they believe to be a threat to their fun on the website. Hardly anything morally difficult to answer.

Most boards have a filter. PONYCHAN has a filter. There are still plenty of anons, and hardly anyone uses it. This is a thing that will be seldom used unless this place has earned its reputation of being filled with dicks.

>ponychan has a filter.
To be fair, it has a third-party extension that has a filter as a part of it. It's hard to say how many people use the extension, since the vast majority of any site rarely if ever visits a site-issues board or wants to download and use such extensions, let alone how many have and use it and make use of the filter they downloaded. I can tell you that just by this thread it seems there's only even call for one by two or three people, so by and large 99% of people here seem to have no trouble dealing with each other 99% of the time. But if another user is willing to put in the work to create this to help those handful of people out, I see no reason to object and let them do what they want. It will have almost no impact on anyone else at all, and will help those few individuals who want it.

The /b/read already has a fortress mentality of sorts, a filter would just make it even harder for new posters to get engaged.

Project development is on hold until further notice.
the only person I would even remotely consider a friend, for grade five and six, hung himself on Friday. At my school. He doesn't even go to my school. I will not be online anywhere. Please do not try to contact me if you see me on Skype. This isn't a problem I'd like for you guys to have to deal with.

The day this filter is implemented is the day half the site leaves. All a filter will do is cause drama , I am sincerely begging you not to implement it. Everyone will use it on anons.

Legendary!!VhZ4lFrash 6503

>>6502
I feel the same way, but at the same time, I know that anonthony will not let it come to that, so I trust that if there is massive backlash, it will be removed.

Anonymous 6504

>>6503
Or better yet just dont implement it at all. The amount of people who dont want it far outweigh the number of people who do , and if this is implemented it will take months to remove if there is backlash just because of how the process of feedback works. Oh btw are you on skype?

marisa kirisame!LWitchfcEo 6505

i doubt half the site is going to leave, because i doubt many people are going to download it. as for the people that are going to use it heavily, all they're really going to find is how crappy an already not very fast board is when half of its users are invisible

Every other imageboard on earth has filters either on them or available as userscripts/addons/extensions. Even if you didn't know it, everywhere else you've ever been has had one people could use.

Therefore, you have no point.

BatBane 6512

Half the site wont jump ship because of this, at most a few people will and that is because nobody wanted to talk to them in the first place and got mass ignored, although my personal opinion is that there are to few posters on the site for people to have the ability to quickly just wall each other off it wont cause a site ending tragedy.

Legendary!!VhZ4lFrash 6642

because the nature of the filter has been changed from an on site addition to a JS extension, I've been a bit lost as it how to do everything, as well as school kind of eating my time. I'm terribly sorry for making you all wait so long, and if I don't have it completely finished and working by this friday, I'm going to just hand the code over to macil so that he can get it out the damn door. I really am sorry for making you guys wait 7 weeks for this, that was really crappy of me :c

It's not like anyone can jump ship to efchan. I heard that one time they permabanned a new user for absolutely nothing, sounds a bit far fetched though so it's probably just one of those wild rumours.

efchan doesnt just randomly ban users without reason, unless the new mod they added is just that terrible. i doubt it though

Who Remmy?

Apparently he had the same IPs as a previous poster named frost and was banned for it. Never really saw how he was frost but i'm still a little confused over that ordeal.

That was awhile ago and the one who was banning was BB.

Nah Muck you leather head.

maybe you and I should settle this right here in the ring?

Legendary!!VhZ4lFrash 6842

delicious delicious bit of code :3

function filter(type, value) {
if (type == "email") {
return $(".email[href='mailto:"+value+"']").parents(".post").hide();
}

return $("."+type+":contains("+value+")").parents(".post").hide();
}

If I were to input this into the console, it would look something like this

filter("trip", "!!VhZ4lFrash")

(aftercopy pasting that first bit in, that is)

there is much more finished, I just don't have it on me right this second, I'll have it later today, at which point I will hand it over to macil, and a UI will be applied to it, and all will be good.
the part of code that you aren't seeing is what handles being able to remove filters

Legendary!!VhZ4lFrash 6856

Mac has the code(s)
here it is for you guys.
