    That doesn't work in the shoutbox. It forces the filter on it with no bypass and it does it sloppily.

    I love our video sharing threads. And we must keep them... But they really stress out everyone's PCs with the high number of posts per page we have. They struggle to load all the videos on a page. Could we possibly change the forum's default number of posts per page... perhaps to 15 like it used...

    When we did the switch, we were not told blogs wouldn't survive so most people did not save their blogs. The only record of most of them is in the old archives saved from the move. When I asked about this immediately when the blogs were announced to not be coming back, after the move was done, I...

    I'm sure it's possible. However the current infractions thread was made in the first place because the mods were ignoring and brushing under the rug any infraction complaints that were taken privately. Usually not even bothering to respond. Or if they do, all they ever said was "our decision...

    But should it be all on them? I want people to have... you know... personal lives too. Being a mod is stressful. We can't pile too much on too few people. More mods would help. Oh.. very important, what I just said, we need to recognize that mods are human beings too with their own feelings. I...

    Going on what I said, the criticism of mods is absolutely essential. It is very, VERY easy to be tempted by the power. Being constantly open to criticism is an effective buffer against that temptation. Accountability means that the idea of abusing the powers is less tempting because it won't be...

    I want to follow this line of thought. Proxy offense is not okay. If you think someone someone said to someone else is offensive, you've got no right to tell that person they should be offended. Everyone needs to understand that. We like to believe negative things about other people. If you...

    Not punishing people left and right doesn't mean the mods are not doing their jobs. Far from it. Punishment should be the absolute last resort. The worst chapters in ZD history have been caused by mods being too quick to punish, too eager to be excessively politically correct. Every single time...

    The force ignore I have in place seems to be working same as it always has. Only problem is that the "Show Ignored Content" button is still available. For forced ignore cases like mine, stalking, that button should be made inaccessible, which is doable with a simple line of CSS code to hide that...

    There is the awards idea that I had. It's not all that should be done but that idea needs to be looked at again. It got quiet. It's in the wiki forum.

    I understand that this merger attitude was very popular with the forum staff for years but I have constantly argued against the whole time. It makes things much more difficult to track and moderate. It makes the resulting bigger section appear to have more activity even though overall activity...

    Wow... yeah. I just got done saying this was before Garo's time and you got here a year after him. And later for mod. Of course you didn't notice this when you were in there. It was done and gone way before then. It just got a little more gone on the forum switch, but even before then it was...

    What part of "defy authority" was hard to understand? That is absolutely not a reason that is just going to be announced as the reason. "Yeah, this act here is going to be banned because we feel it defies our authority." Don't be silly. Instead it'd be an excuse such as the rather ridiculous...

    Those are kind of old. Held over from before on the old forum software where it wasn't optional to have a censor. Swearing wasn't really an issue because it was all censored. So... Some of the staff around then choose to view trying to anyway as defying their authority and that was the real...

    I dunno. The only positive thing you can get out of it is served by the like system. We removed the reputation system in the first place because it was getting very, very badly abused. People were giving constant negative reputation to people they simply didn't like, negative rep for disagreeing...

    I spent a few minutes looking and I couldn't find any. Looked through the entire User's and Profiles list manually, 234 addons in it, and still didn't see anything. So if it is something we really wanted it could still be done but we'd have to do it ourselves and that is not easy. You'd have to...

    I'm not entirely sure that this will be doable on XenForo. Even having an optional censor was one of the reasons why we switched to it. So it's not a common feature and there isn't much being looked into for expanding it further than that. I even tried looking for browser addons to do it as...

    I don't think something on the forum would necessarily work. Some of the people involved have a habit of saying different things in public that contradict things they've said in a more private setting. And a lot of this has to do with some very personal stuff that tends to bring people shame in...

    I kind of lost interest in this particular discussion at the moment because I have a huge headache from everything before. and I don't really know what to do about staff, but I thought I'd just point out that this is what the wiki does. The "rank" above admin there is bureaucrat and we decided...

    A while ago I had, via-skype, suggested splitting up this particular section of the forum we're talking in now, Forum Suggestions and Feedback forum, with an official suggestions subforum, with the base forum being for the "feedback" part of it. Each suggestion would have its own short thread...

    A change in staff? Absolutely not. Everyone on staff now is great. But I can't disagree that it could benefit from getting some new staff to replace those who retired. The current staff have their own lives and it'd can't be left to just them forever, it's unfair and too much to retain long term...

    Say's it's a legit suggestion when it's nothing more than even more nonsensical trolling. You're right, it's not gonna happen. Not agreeing on what constitutes an "obvious problem" doesn't mean that the staff doesn't genuinely care. The staff members that left felt there were "genuine" problems...
