Can you please ban the UNIX-Haters monkey. He doesn't post anything useful, and when he does reply he completely derails the thread.

When will we have a completely Torified 8chins? The pictures are and cancerous advertisements of course, are routed through clearnet and therefore harms the anonimity of the user. Assuming that was not intentional on the Jim's part, when will we have a proper onion imageboard?

you think this is bad? i got a 24hr ban for asking why an original xbox emulator doesnt exist... because thats tech support? yfr half the threads on this board are tech support if thats the case. whose gonna be the first to make a technology board that doesnt suck?

This is the part of your post that made it very clear it was tech support:

>i just found all my old games and i want to replay them!

You were asking it because you couldn't figure out how to play your video games.

7b4297 No.1504


ya dont say? na, i just love microsoft and i want to see more of thier junk emulated for the hell of it. obviously i was interested running old games, the point of the thread was still clearly the question of why nobody has done this, if there was a way to run these games, i would have probably found it on my own.

<inb4 but halo...

yeah i know i used halo in the post and a pc port for that specific example exists that i could pirate, but theres enough games that will be lost forever without this, and yeah xb360 emulation exists, but even with real hardware not all of og xbox games ran, and the ones that did, usually had problems.



these are perfectly fine tho? i dont want to see more people banned, i want to see you lighten up, this board is becoming closer to /b/ by the day, do you really need to be banning people who are genuinely interested in technology when the ratio of shitposts is continuously rising?

7b4297 No.1508



just zoomed in on that pic, xenia is the xbox 360 emulator so thats out of the question, and cxbx is a windows only program so it would have to be run thru wine and the chances its gonna run well are low.

why did you censor the tor thread

9c29c8 No.1499

It had an astonishing lack of discussion about technology

000000 No.1500


what about the part where people were discussing technology (tor, i assume, is a technology, right?)

9c29c8 No.1501


I saw only one post that was about Tor (the technology, not the project).

The rest was bickering about whether political correctness should be classified as fascism or communism, and whether the Frankfurt school is communism, and whether Jacob Appelbaum being a gay jewish anarchist justified accusing him of rape, and how awful the fugging SJW leftists are in general.

As in, country flags instead of the OS ones. I'm requesting IDs much more strongly though.

e7f6e9 No.1431

you can't do that because then it will show that there's only 10 people on /tech/ and that the rustfag argues with himself all day long to bump the rust thread as an advertisement.

894b46 No.1432


Alternatively, perhaps the Rustfag will cease bothering if he realizes he's spending all his time trying to convert the same 10 people.

ID's are only thread wide so technically there could more than ten anons.

They need some moderation in regards to obvious derailment (shitposters favourite will always be licenses) and spam or they will continue to die pretty fast. The shitposts are pretty obvious in their intent. Since we don't have IDs, I can't see if it's all the same guy, but the posts look all really similiar anyway.

I respond to "Are there any alternatives to pozzicuck firegay?" with

>get palemoon you retard

Check back later, it's gone!

fair enough there are six other firefox threads so that makes sense

I respond to "Can we have a windows debloat guide" with

>get devuan you retard

Check back later, it's gone! That was genuinely good advice for the insufferable "muh gaymes" OP.

Why is it gone?

Why is there some autismal do it for free sperglord cleaning up all the threads? Why not get rid of every other thread? They're all shit. Every one is shit. You don't get to be the arbiter of what is shit and what isn't.

I'm gonna go to a different board with blackjack and hookers. God damn hot pocketeers ruin everything

I think the other email thread is a good thread. I hadn't decided on an email client and was just going to go with "whatever's FLOSS" but in terms of providers it's convinced me to switch from a German one to perhaps something else.

>thread was low-quality in the first place

Fine, fuck those particular threads.

>Software recommendation goes in the tech support sticky

But this is supreme retardation. Tech support sticky is for 'your troubles'. I'm not in trouble if I just want to pick out a particular piece of software and need anon's opinion. The sticky is for very specific problems that can be answered concretely. This is why generals/advice generals exist. Make them loop and with /tech/'s PPH it will take a long while for even one to fill up.

>Are there any alternatives to pozzicuck firegay?

>Can we have a windows debloat guide

The original post of the thread needs to contribute something, else it should just go to the questions thread. Threads are for discussion,not answering questions or getting others to do all the work.

yo ring what do you put into the ban duration field to permaban someone?

and is there a better way to post as board volunteer other than writing ## Board Volunteer?

can you sticky threads so they dont replace the rules sticky and instead go at the end of all stickied threads?

thanks senpai

cd103d No.1464

>yo ring what do you put into the ban duration field to permaban someone?

You leave it empty, or you put "forever", but all bans are cleared periodically when the salt changes so there's no real difference between a permaban and a 30d ban.

>and is there a better way to post as board volunteer other than writing ## Board Volunteer?


>can you sticky threads so they dont replace the rules sticky and instead go at the end of all stickied threads?

Yes, by bumplocking them, stickying them, replying to the rules sticky, then deleting that reply. Deleting replies can debump threads as of recently, so it's possible that no longer works. In that case, remake the rules sticky. The bumplock is the key.

It might be better to e-mail me instead if if it's not about /tech/. Good luck with whatever board you're running.

000000 No.1465


don't know your mail

how do you stealth bumplock a thread? i.e. without the anchor appearing next to it?

cd103d No.1466



Visible bumplocks are a board setting, it can't be done per thread.

Hello, guy & ring, I really appreciate what you've done to help foster a thriving community but to be quite frank I sincerely believe you're understaffed. Once /g/ dies down a little do you think you could allow applications for new janitors? It doesn't matter who it is so long as they enforce the rules, and if they do a bad job (removing posts which aren't breaking the rules) then you can just remove them right? Thanks for the read.
