How do I... (things from 4chan) (111, permasaged)

1 Name: Anonymous 2005-09-02 15:50 ID:fbH+/o++ [Del]

I recently (ie. today) set up my own wakaba imageboard and I was wondering how to do some things. Now, I'm not sure if these things are 4chan only or if they can be done in any wakaba, since I've only seen them in 4chan, but here's what I want to know.

  1. How do I make a post as an admin/mod (like when a mod posts in 4chan, it shows the name in purple instead of green)?
  2. How do I sticky posts?
  3. And how do I add word filters?

Thanks in advance!

>No, the main issue is that it gets less visitors than is ideal.

That's because the 4chan image boards divert all the potential traffic, and honestly the crew is doing a poor job of bringing awareness to w4ch.

Start aggressively discouraging prolonged or in-depth discussions and debates, suggestion/help/poll threads, etc. on image boards.

Most users (myself included) are almost completely oblivious to the collapsed world4ch menu on 4chan's navigation bar. Have the links appear permanently as in Futaba (under a general category of "Discussion Boards") so that people are be much better aware of them. Look at how much traffic /dis/ generates simply because a direct link is available at the top.

Similarly, the links at the top and bottom of every image board page should include direct links to each world4ch board, instead of a general site link on the opposite side.

Merge the dis boards with their proper world4ch equivalents -- /sug/ with /opdis/, and /dis/ with /lounge/ and /vip/ -- so that they won't cannibalize w4ch's traffic.

It's really not too hard to think about.

>Most Kareha boards are very small.

Point taken, but how difficult can it be to set up mod_perl?

there's pretty convincing argument against stickies in today's /b/.

69 Name: Anonymous : 2006-06-23 11:39 ID:VvN4yDv9 [Del]

something that may work for pseudo-stickies on wakaba, at least, if you insist (suggested to my by a 4chan admin): screw with the database, set the last post time in the thread X amount of time in the future - that MIGHT work - i've not tried it.

70 Name: zro!YC1KvVdhpA : 2006-07-07 14:19 ID:4cJVWrtE [Del]

wait.. i dont get it.

if the admin wants to have stickies on his board (for whatever reason that might be) then why shouldn't he?*

just beacuse you dont like how stickes fuck up boards doesn't mean every admin out there does. you can just disable the script or simply ignore it and/or dont use it. isn't choise more important here?

The functionality of software is defined as much by what features it lacks as by what features it implements. Open-source programmers and advocates seldom grasp this, and like to promote "choice" at the expense of solid design.

The sad state of a lot of open-source software is in part a consequence of this.

I get what you mean, but that doesn't seem to be like a valid reason for discluding stickies. It's true that implementing the wrong features can be detrimental. I wouldn't want to buy a toaster that could also work as a car jack. It's potentially useful but will most likely never be; even if it were the same price as the regular toaster, I would probably just buy the regular toaster.

But then there are optional features that are useful as long as they don't get in the way when unwanted. Hence almost any stove can bake, fry, and broil. Maybe one doesn't ever fry, but the burners on the surface of the stove do not hinder your baking and broiling.

I think stickythreads falls into the latter category. I mean, you implemented funny-anonymous which is interesting but rarely used, right? How is that more useful to the functionality of Wakaba than stickying threads?

Personally I don't give a shit about stickies. When I'm on 4chan and I see a sticky thread, I'm usually turned off by the fact that the choice in subject matter seems rather arbitrary, and the implementation of the sticky is poor due to the fact that there's no pagination and sometimes several hundred comments to load, which takes a long damn time despite my 6megabits connection.

But that's the implementation and the usage. Maybe if 4chan used pagination and maybe stickied a thread that was actually interesting or funny to me for once, I'd have a better opinion of it. I don't find the concept itself to be worthless.

If you hate the concept of stickies that's fine. It's your damn script, and it's free. But come on. Admit you just won't implement it because you hate it, not because it's useless :)

An imageboard with sticky threads is more like a toaster with an "always burn crusts" feature.

75 Name: zro!YC1KvVdhpA : 2006-07-08 03:22 ID:4cJVWrtE [Del]

>>74 your input adds alot to this here conversation and is very convincing indeed.

but hey, maybe i like the "always burn crusts" feature, and clearly alot of other people with boards do but dont want to waste time on learning to code just to add it.

why not add an 'extra script download' page with the "tabu" scripts like sticky on the wakaba/kareha page? or a 'how to' page??
beacuse god forbid someone wants to have stickies on his own board.

alot of you who dont like stickies point towards 4chan.
/v/ has had extremely usefull stickies such as NDS friendcodes to Wii connection games etc.
how is that a bad thing? oh wait, it isn't.

choise > *

> NDS friendcodes to Wii connection games

You need to post images for that? Use a message board.

77 Name: zro!YC1KvVdhpA : 2006-07-08 06:18 ID:4cJVWrtE [Del]


i didn't mention anything about posting images.

78 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2006-07-08 06:30 ID:Heaven [Del]

>>76 got it right - I'd find stickied threads of NDS friendcodes incredibly annoying on an image board. Image boards aren't meant for long discussions of that nature. That's what you have discussion boards for. If you have lots of people posting their friendcodes anyway and want to do something about it, you can just put in a link to a friendcode thread in the rules section.

79 Name: zro!YC1KvVdhpA : 2006-07-08 10:02 ID:4cJVWrtE [Del]

please stop with the 'i dont like stickes' beacuse nobody really cares, and start to explain why this software shouldn't have a sticky code (right out of the box) and why it would be a bad thing for us, AND YOU, to have the choise of enabling or disabling stickies.

you are talking about choice at the expense of solid design, and by solid design you mean less features?
then why dont you disable the choise to change CSS/color schemes or disable the 'More Options' and make the software more "solid" in it's design.. go ahead.

and who is to judge what "solid design" is. you? me?
lol gestapo.

Man, you're awesome at convincing people to do work for you, aren't you?

81 Name: EleoChan!EhVtXXdTd6 : 2006-07-08 10:39 ID:Q/iXCgMp [Del]

So do you feel that the separation between discussion boards and imageboards hasn't at all converged over time?

I understand your philosophy on keeping things pure and simple, but at the same time the users have fashioned temporary-discussion boards out of imageboards, that seems to be what they want, regardless of the intended purpose :(

82 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2006-07-08 10:56 ID:Heaven [Del]


I think that if you want a combination, you should run Kareha with images enabled, which is a much better solution overall. Running a Futaba-style board as a discussion board is nothing new, that idea's been around since 4chan's /q/ years ago, and it wasn't a good idea then and it's not a good idea now.

83 Name: zro!YC1KvVdhpA : 2006-07-08 13:46 ID:4cJVWrtE [Del]

>Man, you're awesome at convincing people to do work for you, aren't you?

my hero.

dont get me wrong, i would gladly code this myself if i knew how to do it.
now.. can you please explain why it would be such a bad choise to add this feature into wakaba? beacuse i dont see any problem with it except that you dont like it.

84 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2006-07-08 14:30 ID:Heaven [Del]

No, I don't think I will. Because I already have, in this thread, and because I don't think talking to someone who's calling me a nazi will really benefit me in any way whatsoever.

So run along now, kid.

85 Name: zro!YC1KvVdhpA : 2006-07-08 16:40 ID:4cJVWrtE [Del]

i callws myself a gestapo.. not you :)

>So run along now, kid.

not only did you just show your immaturity by expressing yourself in that way, but also that you are an elitiist who likes to talk down on people younger than yourself. im 20+ but that has nothing to do with you not answering my simple question. and if you dont want to answer you could just re-direct me to a page that has the code or something.

>benefit me in any way whatsoever.

good luck with that. :/

86 Name: !WAHa.06x36 : 2006-07-08 16:43 ID:Heaven [Del]

Then act it, please, and learn some basic politeness and tact, OK? I was being comparatively nice because I figured you were a kid and didn't know any better.

If you tried acting like this, screaming at and insulting the developers and demanding they explain themselves to you, on anybody else's support board, you'd find yourself banned and all your posts deleted pretty damn quick. Around here, we're easy-going.

Now, have a nice day, and please don't post again.

you have issues man.. i said you had a great support board wtf is wrong with you? didn't you notice the smily?

insult? please do point me to the reply where i insult you or any other member of this board and i will gladly apologize and leave.

but please dont ban me, i want to use this board for the help. D:

Sigh. Away with this abortion of a thread.

If somebody really wants to discuss stickies again, start a new fresh thread that is not so filled up with idiocy.

but wht the boy didn't kno is that the girl only asked him those questions so she could hear him say it one last time, and she only broke up w/him because she knew she only had 3 more weeks to live, and thought it would cause him less pain and give him time to get over her before she died.


the boy is found dead with a gun in his hand..with a note in the other...

THE NOTE SAID:i told her i would take a
bullet for her....just like she said she would die for me...

re-post this within 10 min as : "awww this made me cry"

To the causal observer, they rather be able to look at funny image macros and porn while discussing things then with REAL discussion on a message board.

It's just the way things became.

103 Name: Swenky!xi8/JKFwzo : 2009-06-02 23:07 ID:+rvaOfSR [Del]

Well, since I'm here I might as well put my opinion into this old-as-fuck thread.

First off, regarding OP.

# How do I make a post as an admin/mod (like when a mod posts in 4chan, it shows the name in purple instead of green)?

Stylesheets motherfucker, google 'em.

# How do I sticky posts?

Sticky posts are not really worth implementing, about 90% of the time (bullshit estimated statistic) they are just a re-statement of the rules. If your users don't at least skim over the guidelines, they shouldn't be posting in the first place.

However, this feature can be nice to have when a good epic thread comes along that users generally agree is epic (this is a nice feature for boards with less traffic.)

# And how do I add word filters?

This is mentioned way earlier in the thread.
Regarding whether word filters are useful or not, I would have to say that they can be, so long as they aren't being used to do things like force memes. Example: wordfilters used on common grammatical omissions from words (such as turning youre into you're.) Example 2: have words that are spammed turn into funny things (such as turning "DESU DESU DESU" into "I HAVE NOTHING TO CONTRIBUTE AND I AM A GIGANTIC FAGGOT.")

> Regarding moderation practices

Have specific bans times for offences, but warn that the mods are assholes. Have a nice spamlist and implement a report feature, tell users how it works and warn them that they will get permab& if they abuse.

Also, visible moderation is hilarious.

>Regarding discussion of permasage on certain users

While they can proxy past it, most newfags wouldnt be able to figure out one that is cookie-based, thus making it both funny and useful.

>FINALLY - regarding software

PHP - based boards lack security due to PHP and the type of programmers that follow
PERL - based imageboards work one fuckton of a lot better with databases, as well as being less exploitable

kusabaX > Serissa

I personally like the base wakaba, although I find it only lacking of multi-board moderation.

573chan's wakaba mod is nice.

> Conclusion

People on messageboards argue too much:

  • Glance over the rules
  • Fap/Draw/Save/Chat
  • Don't be butthurt over trolls (cmo'n, it's not like they know your name or anything)
  • Learn when to sage
  • Stop your fucking complaining
  • Tolerate gore
  • LRN 2 WEB 1.0 (LOL IRC)

... Goodnight internet!
... Thank you internet!
... Fuck you internet.
... Fuck you!
