I had a nice thread started and suddenly I can't post anything. Clicking the "Reply" button takes me to a blank page with the url www.operatorchan.org/board.php and nothing happens. I've tried restarting my browser and clearing my cache.
Tested with a pic via File URL successfully, could you tell me what browser you are using?

what image? what URL?
I must know more about that peculiar vehicle.
Looks like a tatra with woodgas generator.
I have a suggestion. How about a /n2/ where the rules of /n/ are less strict?
And after >>/t/46512
I think it would be cool to have a /OPER/ (or what ever would be better) section for 'Operator of the week/day', but not pertaining to just military, how about news stories private citizens defending themselves? If you say no I won't be disappointed at all, it was just a thought that popped in my head.
Just stopping in to support an "operator of the week" stickied thread or section or whatever.
yeah, I don't think it warrants its own board, but a sticky would be cool
A sticky would be good.
What about a /n2/ then? With the current rules of /n/ there is a lot of news stories in /t/ when they used to be all in /n/ and I feel that this takes away from the true purpose of /t/ of just a 'general talk' thread instead of talk and news in the same thread.
We're trying to prevent board sprawl. We already have a lot of boards, some of which don't get a lot of traffic. Adding boards isn't really something we want to do at random (consider the time it took to re-introduce /stem/), and adding /n2/ would not only circumvent what we tried to achieve with the new rules in /n/, but also essentially create a second /dmz/ (which gets too much traffic as it is, this is another point we certainly have an eye on).
tl;dr "no" to the /n2/ suggestion, but thank you for bringing it up.
Can you tell me more about the "Operator of the week thread" idea? I'm not quite following it. Is it something like http://www.badassoftheweek.com/ ?
OK thanks, basically its like 'badass of the week' but our own version with not just military or paramilitary OPERATORs, but also private citizens who defend themselves from what could be considered and OPFOR.
So if there is an article that says 'store owner stops 3 basketball Americans in robbery and leads police to arrest' it would go in there. But if it says 'armed thug scared away because of dumb reason' it might not be eligible. I'm sure a good system for eligible articles can be devised.
>3. All posted articles must have national/international relevance. No more "two grannies shot in hoboken". This will be enforced at mod discretion.
What do you consider nationally/internationally relevant?
I want to abide by the new rules this line seems a little vague to me.
Alright thank you for the clarification.
That is not to say smaller stories are altogether verboten, but they have to have a much broader relevance than was previously allowed. We're trying to move to a smaller quantity of threads with higher quality.
This is a story that spans continents. Why was it locked?
Because the geographical span of the story does not make it nationally or internationally relevant.
>Look at your article you would like to post. Would it fit into the front page section, the local news section or the "weird news" section of a large news-paper.
>If it would be front page news, go ahead. If not, post at your own risk.
criticizing jews is not permitted
Increase post limit in /dmz/ from 500 to 800 or 1000.
/dmz/ isn't your old /s/, serv. opchan isn't a porn site. more porn is not a reason to change board settings.
Could have fooled me what with all the porn threads and the stickied boob thread (exempting it from said post limit)
Yes, because one thread is so easy to confuse with 15 pages worth of porn.
Denied for lack of tangible benefits. Locking thread to prevent catfight.
Auto-update on threads. nuf' said.
I don't think most boards move fast enough to warrant the work of implementing it. Wouldn't mind having it though.
Essentially this, it'd be a nice to have feature, but until we get more code-monkeys, convenience additions are far in the backseat.
So, theres 15 pages allocated to each board, labelled 0-14. The bottom of /t/ has links for pages 0-15. The last link just 404s, since that refers to the 16th page, which doesnt exist. Pretty basic and out of the way off-by-one error, I think it should be a simple fix, but I dont reckon its bothering anyone if it persists. Just thought to point that out.
All pages 0 - 15 work fine for me.
Just tested it, it works fine for me now. Weird.
Polite sage for no content.
Can we do something about certain tripfags (Kebab, Clio) derailing threads to have their own little shitfests?
Yea, report it as it happens.
Did we lose operatorchan.org email or something? I have been trying to log into my opchan email through google for months now and it just tells me, "This email does not exist"
You should be able to use the normal gmail login screen too. Works fine.
It won't work for me for some reason through the regular google screen.
But thanks for that link serv.
Log out of any other Google accounts and try again. Since my University went with Gmail, I sometimes have issues if I try to log in to both my personal and university accounts.
Worked. Thank you.
with respect to the new sticky in /n/, does that mean i can continue to call people i don't like "nigger" for the reset of this year?
/n/igger, yes, for a few more hours.
The thing with /n/ is that it attracts a group of people who are only on it to shitpost and troll.
I have a question about the sticky, it says all titles must be
This is the first time in my life I've ever heard this word, can I have some clarification?
(esp. of something written or spoken) Briefly and clearly expressed
In the archived threads, is there a way to keep the in-thread links to other posts?
Right now all of them break when the thread is archived
no. There isn't.
To clarify, because my response may have seemed abrupt.
There is likely some coding that can be done to make that happen, but it's very, very low on the list of priorities.
There certainly is a way, but we don't have any coders with enough spare time to implement it.
