So, what is next in development? >The same way I improved the site code, I want to improve the database code (the software that actually stores posts, user accounts and so on). It is a very small task in comparison to the time it took me changing the site code, but I want to read a few programming books so give me 2 months at most to get this done, as real life obligations sometimes take a lot of my time. If not, I may get it done in some 2 to 3 weeks. >After that, I think the next step is to invest into board owner tools. We need to have a sense of community to grow, and if board owners cannot properly manage their boards that gets in the way of that. They need to be able to add moderators, moderate the moderators, and so on. >Next, I need to add a proper moderation system where global mods are publicly accountable for what they do, and so unfairly banned users or posts can be restored as if nothing happened. >Then, we need to improve the visuals of what we already have, some areas of the site are very raw, and I need to bring back things that were already working (filtering the frontpage, auto update, donating posts) What do you think? Also, if someone wants to create a discord server for us, I will add its link to the header.

I did implement a new ad today on old threads and the explore page (the side vertical one) If all elements in the page have loaded (202, 304 status or 307) I have no idea what could be causing this, especially if javascript is disabled. Guess it is some issue with the ad blocker

>A Canadian sex toy manufacturer has agreed to hand over $4 million to settle a privacy lawsuit after it was discovered its “smart vibrator,” the We-Vibe 4 Plus, secretly collected highly sensitive personal data, right down to the date and time the device was used. >The lawsuit — filed in the U.S. in September 2016 — alleged We-Vibe manufacturer Standard Innovation designed its app to collect and record intimate and sensitive data on use of the vibrator, including the date and time of each use as well as vibration settings (like “pulse,” “peak” and “cha cha cha”). The We-Vibe requires users to download the app, called We-Connect, so users and their partners to control the Bluetooth-equipped vibrator’s settings remotely. http://globalnews.ca/news/3308543/we-vibe-privacy-lawsuit-settlement/

Devuan considers enacting Code of Conduct. Devuan, the once devil-may-care total fork of Debian, once linked to virulent internet sexism and gamer-gate affiliated image forums by Debian Developer Russel Coker, has mulled the option of enacting a Code of Conduct when one of its female members was insulted: > https://botbot.me/freenode/devuan/2016-05-25/?page=2 >jaromil today i was scrolling through http://geekfeminism.wikia.com/wiki/Timeline_of_... >golinux Well, I tried but couldn't find anybody.
