In this sticky, we will try to create a mini-FAQ of sorts to answer commonly asked questions. The post/topic order may change as we delete/update posts.
The OPERATORchan Global Rules
These rules apply on all boards. Some boards may have additional rules, or allow more discretion when posting.
The OPERATORchan FAQ
This FAQ goes more in-depth than what we'll cover here. Go here for information on the basics of *chans such as tripcodes or other features.
The current OPERATORchan staff is as follows:
We are currently looking for proficient PHP coders to help keep OPchan running. If you're interested in joining our team, get in touch!
There are four main methods of getting in touch with a staff member.
If you want to bring a post to a staff member's attention, use the Report field. Mark a post with the checkbox, and then scroll to the bottom-right of the page. Enter a reason in the Report field and then click "Report". Use this function for reporting rule violations, spam, improperly placed threads, archive-worthy posts, etc. Don't bitch about a post if you haven't reported it.
/sug/ - Suggestions
If you have an improvement idea for the board, or want to discuss something together with other users regarding the site, post a thread in /sug/. We will do our best to respond in timely fashion.
IRC - Internet Relay Chat
We consider #/k/ on Rizon our home. You will almost always find a staff member or two there, so if you have a question, ban appeal, rule clarification or other gripe, feel free to contact us there. You can use Mibbit, a web-based IRC client, to access the channel:
If you need to contact an administrator with a personal/private/sensitive matter, you can also email us. Try firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Here's the deal with the embeds. At first, we used KusabaX's standard video embedding code. However, this sometimes slowed boards to a crawl because of the loading times. We therefore implemented a solution that only loads videos if you click on individual thumbnails.
I Can't Watch Videos, The Thumbnails Go White and Restart If I Click
Now, a few people are having issues with the embedded videos/thumbnails. These folks are predominantly using Google Chrome, which uses a built-in Flash player called PepperFlash. This is what's causing the issues for the vast majority of people. To fix the issue on Chrome, navigate to "chrome://plugins/". There, Ctrl+F for any entries containing "PepperFlash", "PepFlash" or similar. Then, deactivate those plugins. Restart your browser, and go to Adobe's website and download their standalone Flash player. Install it, and restart your browser again. You should now be able to watch embedded videos.
I Can't Post/Embed Videos
This may have been miscommunicated at some point. Under KusabaX's standard embedding code, you only had to paste a YouTube video's unique video code into the embed field to post it (e.g. "L6UhFkUo9xI"). Now, you will have to paste the entire URL into the embed field (e.g. "http://youtu.be/L6UhFkUo9xI").
