After reading a few new books, I've begun working on the 3rd or 4th major refactor of Ccluster's code. With this internal update, I'll make everything generally better to work with including the ability to auto-update anything we'd want. I'll continue working on new features after this update.
>>24309 The problem with that technology is that it's equivalent to give Microsoft data of the visitors of this chan. (Not Gad)
Due to a global moderator posting a screenshot which showed someone's anonID name, I've changed the behavior of the reports page. Previously, global moderators could see the name of those that reported a post (but never the name of people who made a post, to maintain user's privacy). Now, the anonID name does not show up anywhere at all.
>>24280 >why do I need to rebut anything? classic. i bet you're always number one on debate team. usually it is customary when new arguments are presented to rebut them. you know, like you blame the phantom pedo for the site's "downfall", i counter it is the constant spam that happens to be pedo-themed. this has happened for as long as i remember and i left because of it. do you see any pedos around here? nope. the spam is still here though. guess what spammers do? THEY SPAM!!!! the pedos you could at least ignore in their own threads, the spammers were and are in every thread.
I am trying to find or purchasea database of known proxies/TOR exit nodes/spammer IPs, that is regularly updated, to add them to our permabanned list so I can bring back IP posting. If you know of a reliable service, help is appreciated.
I will restore IP posting at a later date once we have more mods, using one of the proxyblock databases as well.
New changes: >Reporting someone will prevent them fro posting again until moderators review the report. If you have 50 posts /5 active days, being reported will not prevent you from posting >Reporting a post will make it disappear from the frontpage, from the board page, and from inside a thread. Basically everywhere. Right now trusted anonIDs don't have protection against their threads being hidden, but I will add that probably this week I wanted to make that reporting one post would make all posts by that user also hide from view. Very good against spam, unfortunately it also lets people identify legitimate user's sameposts, which is very bad for privacy and therefore could not be implemented. Regardless, everyone can act as a janitor now cleaning up the boards and preventing bots from further posting.
Mods r sleeping Post cawk
Starting next monday, I will dedicate at least 1 day a week to code ccluster, so we get back to steady updates. Sorry for the hiatus. I have realized that I won't be able to do what I once did in the past, that is, to alternate between working on my games exclusively for a while and then ccluster. My next goals are to: >Finish the report feature (trusted IDs will be able to report and hide posts from untrusted new IDs and so on) >Bring back IP posting and mass IP ban of known proxies (which doesnt prevent ID posting with banned ips) >Make the overall site look finished, with features such as customizing your board and hiring your own board helpers, so we can grow in users.
>>23892 I don't understand.
A bug in the system is allowing anon IDs with high post count (probably from donations) but 0 active days to post disrespecting cooldown times. This is why there is so much spam again. I will attempt to fix this tomorrow. Soon I also intend to code the feature that lets trusted IDs hide reported posts from everyone's view
>>23755 I remember that image
How is the first step of the new anti spam system holding up in your opinion? Soon I'll start coding the next steps. Check the past global threads for more information
I'll try to add some of the new moderation features in the following days, and I'll make a new global thread soon for us to discuss if spam is out of the way or not
