Within 1 or 2 weeks I should start mass banning IPs from known proxies and TOR for outlander posts (as usual anonymous IDs can post regardless of their IP). For now, because spam is too great to handle even with the help of gmods, I'll be disabling outlander posts altogether until the IPs are mass banned.

Our memergetic levels are dangerously low. We used to make the most memes, but now we are running short on them. Unless 3 new good memes are created in this global thread, I'll have to turn chancluster offline for 24 hours.

It seems that /b/admin's account is gone. /b/admin if you are still around please correct me. Otherwise, we need a new /b/admin, please send an email to email@example.com if you want to apply, and also tell me how you would moderate off topic and on topic. Also, I can still use more global moderators (previous thread https://ccluster.com/global/thread/19714), and today I'll code a pagination system for the reports page so gmods can do their job better for now when I'm not around.
>>20398 >Can the global mods see IP addresses and anon IDs? No. Not even in the reports page. IP addresses not even I can see as far as it being associated with a post, because the IP becomes hashed (encrypted)
Those interested in becoming Global Moderators, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your registered username (not the anonID name). If you missed the previous thread, make sure to read: https://ccluster.com/global/thread/19535 For now, to prevent abuse since I don't have a log/report mismoderation system yet, gmods can only moderate posts made in the past 24 hours (that still have their user post history), and posts made by IPs or low post count anonymous IDs. I will prioritize gmods that are already board admins, or that I recognize as being people that have already been reporting a lot of stuff, but if you are interested in helping while staying true to this site's ideals make sure to contact me.
Here is my idea for Global Moderators. As usual, let me know of your feedback. I've spent a lot of time over the years thinking how to let other mods step in without power abuse becoming a problem. Now that I'm finally sitting down to code this, I'm realizing that that is pretty much impossible. At the same time, as the site grows, I won't be able to be solely responsible for moderating everything anymore as that would eventually be too time consuming. I already can't handle the spam as it is. So this is what I have in mind. I will have two classes of gMods: >Those that can delete and ban IPs and low post count anonymous IDs >Those that can ban high post count anonymous IDs To prevent abuse in both cases, I will make in the future that deleted threads or posts instead of completely disappearing, will instead show for a few minutes a notification of deletion, as well as a reminder that if you believe a moderator has erroneously deleted your post or image, you will be able to report that as well through a new button. I will also have the ability to undo the deletion. If gMods abuse their power, there will be a log for me to verify, and remove their gMod. And as long as they know people can easily report mismoderation through a button, it should be enough for them to restrain themselves and never abuse power in the first place because there will be consquences.

>How to make the perfect chan >Step 1, diconnect from the internet. >Step 2, set up chan fork on your local machine. >Step 3, argue with yourself about whether or not you're white. >Step 4, realise the other you is a kike-shill-goon-alphabetman. >Step 5, kill yourself, it's the only way.
Due to the large amount of spam, I will be creating a new feature to allow moderator help soon. I don't know what specifically at this point, as making sure moderator abuse does not happen is a priority. Also, if it turns out it will take too long to code it, I may simply disable outlander posting for the moment.

Welcome to the new form of masterchan.org - ccluster.com I have been thinking about rebranding us for about 2 years now. I believe our new name transmits our ideals better and it is also more mature. Our days of being a /pc/ gaming chan only were 5 years ago, and we have enough perks to differentiate ourselves from all the chans out there that I believe we are entitled to our own name, and to being our own thing as an original website. I'm distancing myself from the chan archetype, something I was never very strongly about other than having a basic image board format. Unfortunately, I could not improve our layout before the name change. There are still pages that look very ugly and broken, and the frontpage while it has a lot of added functionality it still looks the same. But you can now filter the frontpage to your likings, just bookmark it after you hit the customize button. Lastly, I need to address the legal troubles we've had in the past week. To sum it up, I've been in email contact with Dutch Law enforcement and the issue is that: >This includes child modeling which sexual posing and focus on genitals. We concluded that masterchan.org not only made such child modeling files available, but also... Since to my knowledge I was already moderating everything with sexual posing, and law enforcement has said otherwise, posting of child modelling can no longer be allowed here. I wasn't told exactly what images caused this problem, but it is my understanding that: [part 1/2]
