Any chance we can get webm support?
No need to thank me. I only changed a couple things to do this.
Really, I should be apologizing because I've been keeping to myself a lot of information. About my work situation and consequently my free time to work on this project.
If you want to know more, then feel free to ask.
Working on it. I passed out when I got home from work today, so not as much has gotten done as I'd like.
But just so you all are more in the loop, I am hammering the player into our test server as I type this (html page regen takes a shitload of time). It works... sort of. Some stuff isn't loading, which means back to scanning the templates again. Upgrades should be more smooth as I get used to this hamfisted shit and generally doing web dev again.
The preview image and click to load works fine. I have to say, this player is pretty neat the more I look at the features. Gawking aside, I think this will suit our needs, except I have yet to test it with mobile. So that still needs to be done.
Also, I'm going to be doing tests so that I don't see fucked up offsets, odd behaviors with referencing (hover links), and stuff.

Okay, shit works. Still need to fix a quick formatting issue, but it works.
Sorry for the delays for such a simple project. This isn't just another case of me being a lazy shit... which is a reasonable assessment. I'm not saying for you guys to stop hassling me. Hold me accountable for when I'm dragging my ass on something.
Personal projects have piling up and I've only started to get to them this past weekend. Sorry. I am working on it and I am getting better at managing my time and keeping people up to date.
Anyways, I'll toss the code on the main site for dimethylzinc once I sign everything in triplicates, wait in a line longer than the DMV gets, request approval from the other admins over the color of the bicycle shed we plan to use, and finally hold a congratulatory party for ourselves with a beef jerky flavored cake and protein shakes to wash it all down... then reject the code and write it from scratch, because NIH.
It's working and I just want the other admins and mods to take a look before I hand it off to the main site.
Here, have a nice image.
I hail from 8chan, and we have pic related.
Perhaps do something like it to appease both people who want webm with sound and people who don't.
I fugged the preview image setup somehow, but I fixed the floating and underhanging text issue.
I'm tempted to just deploy it and patch it later. :/
Image sampling works. I just need to put it all together like with the youtube image sampler.
So, do we want to have webms silenced on start or what?
How about some backlinks on posts?
no, plz no
I'm not very good with JS, but took a shot at adapting an old Greasemonkey script to do backlinks in here.
derp, forgot the @include.
You the man!!!! Any way this can get implemented?
Any particular reason why not?
Yes. I'll be testing this and webm support throughout the week. Sorry I didn't get to testing it today. I was a sloth yesterday and stayed way the fuck up late playing P4A story mode.
Feel free to call me a faggot, but if I were God-King of Opchan:
>Roll /pt/, /a/, and /vg/ into a /set/ - Sports and Entertainment board covering sports, fitness, and all forms of games both vidya and RL.
>Merge /st/ and /k/. I like the Strip Club board, but it and /k/ don't really seem like they get enough traffic (for a longass time now) to be two separate boards.
>Remove /pasta/ and relegate that to the Zone.
>Add a /diy/ board for do-it-yourself projects of all natures.
Thank you for reading.
>I'm inclined to open it up again (all news goes), including allowing minor personal insults (at the risk of still getting banned depending on the circumstances)
Based dictator please let it come true
I feel that it would help people get their anger out and actually clear the way for decent discussion, and if a thread becomes a shitfest then so be it.
/k/. And Im aware it isn't controlled by Opchan, but it was Opchanners who were OPs at the time. I had a friend who messaged me what was said later. Its not worth making a stink over, but it tells you who is an asshole and who isn't. I wouldn't have brought it up but to point out that I don't care about being banned from an area. Especially if it helps things, as in the case with /n/.
>I personally do not know how to do this, but have brought up the same suggestion multiple times in the past.
There's the base one that's located under "Statistics". It just states post totals and post counts over the last segment of time. I can get better self-hosted stuff if you want.
>I'm inclined to open it up again (all news goes), including allowing minor personal insults (at the risk of still getting banned depending on the circumstances).
Does that mean the mods can have a happy little ban party on /n/? plzplzplz?
Side note: Back when SwissGuy and I wrote the roadmap for the re-launch during/after the Taclink split fiasco, we originally considered just making two boards: /k/ for guns, war, gear, vehicles etc, and /t/ for *all* the rest: talk, porn, suggestions, news, etc.
We eventually scrapped the idea because we eventually figured it'd just end up being a copy of 4chan's /k/ and /b/, and it seemed pointless to duplicate an already successful board, the whole point of OPchan being a somewhat larger space to discuss more detailed stuff on appropriately detailed boards.
A good way to combat slowness would be to make people feel more involved. Give them a pat on the back to thank them for their hard work. Also make sure everyone clearly understands what we're trying to do with this board and buys into it.
For the love of God, would a mod archive the discussion where we talk about AKs and it morphs into a Warhammer pissing contest?
Thanks for consideration.
Still waiting for feedback
Could we have actually usable catalog? Current one is basicly unusable.
If we're going to have it as an option, it will work.
I can't give you a timeframe right now but it is on the list.
Some kind of search function might be more useable than a catalog
This place moves too damn slow for a catalog to make sense
If you need to search opchan just google "site:operatorchan.org dicks" and it should work alright.
Can this fucking stop please?
There's a clear procedure for deleting threads so this kind of abuse doesn't happen.
Thanks for giving us a glance. I'm guessing you're relatively new, or you've been lurking here occasionally and spend most of your time on 8chan or 4chan /k/. Either way, please rest assured myself and the rest of the staff don't have a personal vendetta with anyone in the userbase, and that goes for the couple of regulars who don't namefag and stick to their unique postIDs too. That you were the one who posted both was indeed a factor in my decision, as we've had previous issues with guys like Broseph spamming junk pieces to the point where he needed to be contained in his own thread. On the other hand, there's been talk of bringing that sort of thing back as well, which might actually work since Broseph hasn't posted here anymore.
Usually I'm willing to overlook people starting new newsthreads by pasting links and article text without a serious attempt at initiating discussion, but on top of that, the two threads you started pertaining to some of Obama's executive orders and the buyback hijinks both came from blog posts rather than primary news sources. The buyback one wouldn't really have passed muster for national relevance, as usually it has to pertain to a recent event that goes beyond local. Not that it really matters, but if I'm not mistaken the buyback blogpost was really just someone on 4chan making those pipe guns and the police ended up refusing to pay for them anyway. Hardly a national trend.
When it comes to deleting threads, it's not on the basis of disagreeing with the subject matter. JonNathe and others who've had threads locked or deleted can attest to that, and there's been many frustrations voiced with how /n/ is run. I'd guess more people have spoken up about it than the rest of opchan. I'd say the procedure for outright deletion only in the case of spam or illegal content isn't really set in stone, either. That said, mod locking and admin relocating certainly would have been an option. Of course, being that it's after the fact you're welcome to go ahead repost your links in /t/ or /dmz/ too.
All of your grievances in this situation serves to highlight the point that they aren't inevitably going to translate to the future of moderation here. The opportunity for change is one of the driving points of the /t/ sticky that you felt the need to crosspost into. I suggest you take a break from here and come back when the new crew is in place and have shaken things up a bit.
But if you're already put off enough to permanently resolve your time to another website, that's also great, and I don't mean that in a derisive way. Quite a few people here split their time between multiple places. It's been emphasized in the past that we don't buy into interboard drama/rivalry.
shouldn't this banner have the boltface instead of the chan leaves?
There should be a banner on the subject of shooting owls. I can't art, else I would do it.
Please make something out of these.
Is there a mobile version of the site? Or any app where you can select the *chans?
I think there used to be an app for it (since OPchan uses Kusaba X), but I don't remember the name. Maybe someone else does?
Can I be a mod? Just to delete the pronz spamming as I always seem to be on when it happens?
Sorry to keep you waiting for a reply.
There'll be some changes to the admin & mod team at the end of the year.
Send me your email so we can contact you when needed.
Dang, am I fired?
>Dang, am I fired?
Sooner or later, time will tell.
