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

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.

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

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've been getting annoyed at all these threads with sentence long OPs. Especially the ones without images in the OP.

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 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.

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.

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?

No.

>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.

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.

Look here, you fucking nigger, what the fuck are you doing handing out bans for week old posts for the "crime" of not sucking the dick of linux? You do nothing about sagebombing and spamming of every non-linux thread but ban for WEEK OLD POSTS that aren't shill-tier dicksucking for linux? How the fuck did you get a moderator position anyway? You clearly don't belong on imageboards. Arbitrary bans are perfect for forums and reddit, fuck off back to where you came from.

058f62 No.1421

I didn't ban you for your opinion about Linux, because I didn't know your opinion about it, because all you posted was "kill yourself" ten times.

It's fine to post that. We're all rude here. But please put other things in your post as well, because when it's the only content of your post you're just using it as a downvote.

I banned you this late because I didn't spot your posts until yesterday. If this site had a way to give a warning I would have done that instead.

Please report sagebombing and spamming.

So you spend your day stalking week old threads to see if something triggers you and then you stalk the user's post history to see if he should be banned?

>implying I make threads on /linux/

The way moderation has changed since I last posted, making dank oekaki shitposting images combined with legitimate discussion in the text area would be considered "bannable" by your autism. And now you're banning tech news from

BRIAN FAGIOLI

Which was an often beloved topic for the humor of his name and often-stupid opinions and being able to have a laugh over technology topics amid a sea of "EVERYTHIGN NOT LINUX IS BOTNET STALLMAN SAYS".

https://sys.8ch.net/log.php?board=tech

You have more post deletions than /pol/ for fuck's sake. Meanwhile this is the shit you let slide.

>g-go to another b-board to talk about [any topic that isn't linux or stallmeme]

You have allowed the board for technology discussion to become nothing but a circlejerk over the autistic screechings of some obese communist slob and virtue signaling about how "non-proprietary" you are.


f51000 No.1341

>>1340

>>implying I make threads on /linux/

Okay, so which thread deletion did you complain about? You probably agree that it was ok to delete the example I gave, but that's not the only thread I deleted for that reason, so it would help if you were more specific.

I genuinely don't know which thread you think I deleted for the false reason of "advertising". Help me out here.

>Which was an often beloved topic for the humor of his name and often-stupid opinions and being able to have a laugh over technology topics amid a sea of "EVERYTHIGN NOT LINUX IS BOTNET STALLMAN SAYS".

Ten Fagioli threads at the same time is a bit much. It would be okay as an occasional thing but not when it floods the board and annoys lots of people.

I don't like the extremes of the board's GNU hivemindset either. I don't think Fagioli is the solution.

>Meanwhile this is the shit you let slide.

Not intentionally. Can you report stuff like that? I don't read everything on the board. I've deleted the posts from the first screenshot.

>making dank oekaki shitposting images combined with legitimate discussion in the text area would be considered "bannable" by your autism.

I don't think it would. I don't really like banning, and I generally don't ban much. The Fagioli threads are an exception because they just keep coming.
