Title: The Suggestion Box
Post by: Addie on June 24, 2014, 04:06:27 PM
Know of any software that might improve this board or chat? If there is enough demand later on (and we gain the technical expertise), we might rebuild the site using your suggestions. Suggest away!
Title: The Karma feature
Post by: Addie on June 24, 2014, 07:31:38 PM
No, I will not be turning on the Karma feature (it allows you to "rate" members). It's been abused far too much on other boards. :)

I've uploaded a ton of smileys  :D . If there are any you want to add, post them here. I'll add them if they display ok on a black screen. And let me know if the Post page loads too slowly. I may have too many animated smileys on it.

There's no immediate hurry for this one, but a "spoiler" tag would be neat.

Possible additional emoticons attached... though the list is pretty good as it is. Does it have the option to re-order or group the full list, to make it easier to find one?

Done. I've tried to order the list so they're grouped somewhat according to moods or categories, with the majority of the bigger animated ones being on the popup menu so the main Compose Message page loads faster.

Here's the new spoiler icon: :spoiler:

Thank you. That's awesome. Eee!

I was thinking of something like this for spoilers (http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/?mod=195) so it hides the text.

Done. You can now indicate a spoiler by typing it within tags like this:

Code: [Select]
This is a [spoiler]spoiler[/spoiler]
It will look like this:

This is a
(click to show/hide)

Hrm. The spoiler is coming out in black. [edit: This is a browser-specific problem. The spoiler text is visible in IE but not in Firefox. For Firefox you need to highlight the text to see it.]

Is it possible to add a summary box to the stories section, or a preview box.  Something the authors can put in to give a quick description of the story they are writing.  I could click on every story, but a short description always helps out

I'll second that suggestion (thanks, FS) and also request that we can also choose tags to give the reader an idea of the content of the story.

I agree, that would help greatly. It isn't as easy to do as I'd hoped, so I'm looking at my options.
Title: CHAT ROOM
Post by: ISO on June 28, 2014, 05:19:21 PM
I wonder if there is anyway to show who is in the chat room on the main screen. I see a lot of people going into the chat  room but just missing each other. On RD the chat room and who was in it , was always visible so you knew immediately if you wanted to join the convo.  On this site, you leave the site, and find that you just missed a few people or find later, that they just missed you. Or we could be a new chat room to embed here like the shoutbox I guess.

I'm still researching how to do that. I love how it appeared on RD's front page at the top. Unfortunately there isn't a good snippet of code anywhere for me to reverse-engineer. If anyone out there knows how to do it, hit me up. For now you can use the shoutbox for a chat room.

Some thoughts I've had:

The font is small and narrow and difficult to read. I make my posts in 11 or 12 point font but it would be more pleasant to have the default font size at at least 11. The small print is tiring to try and make out and makes me less enthusiastic to read what people have posted.

I don't want to have to log in anew every time. A "Stay logged in" option would be great.

When posting vids from youtube, the vids show up considerably smaller than what they would be in youtube. I don't know if that can be worked on or if it is inbuilt in the forum layout but it would be nicer to look at the vids in the same size as in youtube.

Glacialis, are you on a computer, a smartphone, or a tablet? I know the option to stay logged in "FOREVER" is one of the options on the sign-in screen on the computer. Just check that box.

Is anyone else having trouble with the font size? I usually increase my browser's font size with
Code: [Select]
{CNTRL} + {+}keys so I haven't had the problem. Let me know and maybe I can work on that.

I've been logging in from the upper right hand corner where there is no check box - now I know better. Thanks Addie.

Will the cntrl+ method increase the font size on only this site or on all sites I use at that time in various tabs until I cntrl- again? I'm happy with the text size on all other sites I use so it wouldn't be convenient to have to go back and forth in text size just to read Rape Cage.

I'm afraid it affects all windows you're using at the time. I'll look at the template here and see if I can increase the font. Is everyone having this problem, or is it browser-specific?

The fonts look good except for one place. When typing a post, the typing box shows the text considerably bigger than the usual font used on the site. At first it seemed to me that the font size increased here too but now I'm not sure anymore. Maybe it was always this big?

When you're looking at the board's topic page you should see a "NEW" gif (http://www.rapecage.com/forum/Themes/coalblack/images/english/new.gif) on threads that contain new posts. Click on that and it takes you to the place where you left off reading last. If that doesn't work for you, let me know as it may be a browser-specific problem. :)

So you've tried the Ignore Boards thingy and it isn't removing the board from your view?

I tested it and while it does hide the posts, it doesn't hide the board altogether. Maybe the best fix for this would be putting the Rage Cage (I assume that's the one you want to ignore? lol) in its own collapsible category.

ETA: I put the Rage Cage in its own collapsible category. See if that makes it better. :D

Some people prefer not to have their online status seen by others. I don't know why that is, since as soon as they post they de-lurk, but I left it as an option.

There's a karma system in SMF, but I chose not to enable it because I've seen it get used for evil far too often. But if everyone here wants to enable it for a while, since everyone here seems to know and like each other, I'm open to it. I'd just have to turn it off the moment I see it start getting abused.

I for one am dead set against a like button. On another forum where there is a like button it has been my feeling/experience that people just click the like button and skip replying to posts they like because clicking a button is easier/faster/more convenient. That leads to posters feeling ignored when no-one replies to their posts which leads to posters stopping to post which leads to silence.

Generally, if you like someone's post, say it. Clicking a like button really is not the same thing, or even comparable. Clicking a like button is like sending a two-word sms instead of an actual birthday card - cheap and impersonal. A click on a like button says "Yeah, I kinda dig your post but honestly not enough to spend 20 seconds to type three words and hit 'post'." If you don't like a post enough to reply with actual words then what is the value or amount of your like? Zero.

(The above is not directed personally at ViolateMeBaby. I'm utilizing the you-passive.)

No vote for Rep system from me. It encourages cliques, looking at previous places I've cunted onto.
Title: Re: The Suggestion Box
Post by: Glacialis on July 03, 2014, 08:51:39 PM
Also, another huge downside to the like button is that the person who's post is being liked will never even know it. Unless he or she keeps going back to check his/her old posts to see if anyone liked them. Who has time for that? So chances are that the gesture of liking a post will never reach the poster anyway. I just can't see the value of such a system.

Speaking up is the way to go. If one replies to a post one likes, the poster will learn of it when checking new replies to their posts.

And thank you for that. It's just a nice thing for privacy.

Some people don't like to be watched while reading the same lovely story 15 times. ;) Or maybe just don't want to be pm-ed by strangers and so on.

I get that. As an introvert, I completely get that. As a person who's thrilled to be seeing some people for the first time in a long while, it's a joy kill. But introversion should win. And I will eventually quit jumping up and down and squealing "Yay!" I don't know when, but eventually.

I think this was mentioned before, but is there any way to remove the time out limit for logging in.  I always forget to click the 'login' link and click the box to stay logged in.  it's not a huge deal, just annoying

I'll look to see if there is. I usually stay logged in forever but I've gotten used to it during development.

ETA: I can't turn off that feature but I can modify its length. I added a few zeroes to the cookie times so that should keep you logged in longer. If you remember to click "stay logged in forever" once that should solve the problem.

As yo the gifts we can do that - find a JPEG of something you'd like to give as a gift and PM it or put it on their wall. You can use the img tag on wall posts even though I don't think there's an editing toolbar. This is more versatile than the pre-selected gifts you see in some sites and shows the person you thought about it a bit.

No, member boards were like a secondary board, the main boards here are board info, discussion, rage cage, stories, role plays, pics.. etc... the secondary boards are the boards contained within each board. They put their member board under
"entertainment" and some posters that Post a lot would have their own tertiary boards within that board, like "Surrenders sanctuary" "Jasmine jewels" etc...

I think they would also show up in recent post searches, but not sure. And also not sure if the respective members policed their on boards or not. I was never very active there to know.
Title: Re: The Suggestion Box
Post by: Alec Durbervilles on July 26, 2014, 09:52:06 AM
Hi everyone. We set up our member boards as child boards so that they wouldn't fill up our main forum page. We will give one to anyone who asks for it and yes, posts there do show up in the post count but Addie can make it so that they don't. It's just a setting in Admin under Boards. You can make the owner of the board a Board Moderator so that he or she can police it better or not if you don't want to accumulate a large group of Board Moderators. Our list of Board Moderators was getting long and I had to alter the permissions and create back office boards for Admin and Global Mods only because it was getting difficult to make staff decisions with so much input. I think at one time we had 26 Board Moderators.

Something interesting that you can do (we had one member who asked for it but then never used it) is create special membergroups that can see a particular Member board that is invisible to everyone else (except Admin, who sees everything). So if someone wants to form an invitation-only club you can create a Membergroup and Member Board to go along with it where everyone can post photos they don't want anyone else to see or they can write comments that no one but the club can read.

Addie, you should come visit us. You're always welcome and you can borrow (steal)  :) anything you see. And Surrender - you should also check back in and keep your member board current. I rank them by how many posts are in them and yours is sinking below "inferior" boards (but don't tell anyone I said that).
Title: Re: The Suggestion Box
Post by: RayPistonprowl on July 26, 2014, 02:52:13 PM
Addie, I can probably do it. It's just adding custom child boards under the main boards, right?

Those who want their own child boards, pipe up and I'll work on it.

Hi again, Alec! Thanks for the offer. I may take you up on that when I get more time. It's nice to have a fellow SMF user to trade ideas with, though I'm still thinking vBulletin (what RD ran on) may be better for us in the long run. It depends on if there's enough demand for it in the future. I think it would be easier on me since I'm not a programmer.

Private groups sound interesting, but I've also heard how they were abused on RD. If there's demand for that, we may try it.

Surrender2U, I'll put your new forum under Pics. If you want anything else, Ray & I should have you covered. We'll add some moderators soon who may also be able to do this stuff.

Addie, if you and Ray are going to switch software, you'd better do it soon. The longer you wait and the bigger your database gets, the harder it will be to switch without losing everything and having to start from scratch. At least, that's my impression, though I'm admittedly the less tech savvy of the two admins at 64 Shades. When we moved from our free web host to our current one over a year ago, nothing was transferred except what I manually copied and moved. Maybe it's easier if you don't change web hosts.

Done. New members now need 25 posts to see The Inner Wanktum. I realise not everyone likes to post to the forum, they may be more of a chatter like me, but I think 25 is enough effort for them to earn this wee reward. ;) They can get 25 posts just by playing games or postwhoring a la Frodo or Fallen Saint.

Without wanting to spoil people's fun...

For the sake of those who aren't involved in the jokes, but who just want to orientate themselves on the board, might it be possible to limit the number of times people can change their ID? Perhaps once a month might be a compromise.

I can remove the ability to change names altogether, but there's no control to simply change the number of times someone can change it. I think if I do that it will revert everyone back to whatever name they signed up as. For instance Addie might end up as Admin again.

I also want everyone to understand that no-one can duplicate your name exactly. There will always be subtle differences in the troll names. I know this can be used for evil, but I don't believe anyone here would stoop to that. It appears to be a bit of good-natured ribbing. I was polishing the floor with my back when Ingy trolled as you (very obviously, btw). I dearly wish I'd saved some of it so you could have a laugh at it as well.

If you and Vee are truly bothered, I'll ask everyone to stop. Let me know.

Register me as a fun hater but I think this nick roulette/trolling/impersonating/whatever is annoying and confusing. It's difficult enough to try to keep up with who's who without people changing nicks all the time for a bit of fun.

Not to mention that I imagine it might be pretty damned insulting to get impersonated against one's will. Before impersonating someone it would be good form to at least ask permission first because not everyone will get or appreciate the joke.

Besides, don't overestimate human intelligence Ray. If I see someone posting as Ray Pistonprowl I'll assume it's you Ray - space or no space. And what Ray Pistonprowl will say will affect my impression of you Ray. To you it may not matter but some people wouldn't like that happening to them.

Inside jokes are best kept as inside jokes and under control. It's not amusing when it's taken overboard and everybody, the whole board, also the people not in on the joke, get it force shoved in their face.

I rather know who's who than see a bunch of random nicks flying around.

I was as guilty as everyone of going nuts with the name changes (sorry) and I would tend to agree the feature should be removed. Would moderators and/or admins still have the ability to change people's nicks if requested, such as someone worried about stalking or having a minor identity crisis? In short, people who don't want to impersonate people.

Re: the trolling

I signed on here last night just for a quick look and saw in the Chat Room panel "Orlando Bloom" and "Justin Bieber". Laughing, I signed into chat just in time to see "Orlando" punching "Justin". Right, so a few clever twats here sorted out how to troll by temporarily changing their "Display Name" on the forum itself! I joined in on it as well. The problem is that it also changed our names on the forum, thus disorientating others who were not in on the original joke and making them uncomfortable, which I can also understand.

The short of it is that I've disabled "Display Names" now. It was fun whilst it lasted, but though our intentions were good it did have some unintended consequences, and I think it's sorted now. If it isn't, let me know.
Title: Re: The Suggestion Box
Post by: Alec Durbervilles on August 04, 2014, 05:29:46 PM
Ray (and others, of course),

If you disable name changes altogether and someone really needs to change his name, he can always open a new membership and you can "attribute" all his old posts to the new name. That way, someone won't feel like he's having to start over if he does need to get a new name. The only downside I can think of is that his "member since" date will change. That can't be fixed.

If you need help finding the "attribute post" function, let me know and I'll send you some notes. It's hard to find and every time I do it, I have to dig deeply to find it.

"Whisperings From..." is difficult to categorize, I know, so I put in BDSM. Not the best fit.

First thing is, I hate the way reputation is done. I think the negative side should be removed. I noticed a few members with negative scores and I think that is bad, they might take offense and/or never post again. And quite honestly, mine has gone down and I'm a little po'd about it.

Second - I think the child board in the picture area is probably a bad idea since it's very hidden. Can you make a whole separate section for member boards, just like 64? That was sorta what I was going for. If it can't be done, I'll just make a thread under pictures.  Not a problem at all. :)

Hi Surrender,

I've turned off Karma (the +/- thing). I don't yet know how to make it work so that you can add but not subtract. Right now my test version of the site is having trouble so I don't want to tweak anything and upload it to find that it broke the live site! :uhoh:

I've made a separate section called Member Boards now, and moved your thread into it. Let me know if there's anything special you want there. For instance, do you want members to have a minimum post count, say 25, in order to view your forum as we do with the Inner Wanktum?

Can you maybe clone the English user-interface translation file, if such there be, and just change a couple terms in it and then switch to using that?

Thanks for the idea, Ingenue. When my local copy of the site is working properly again I may try a few tweaks.

Because I am a very strange writer, I was wondering if we could add some other categories? Besides rape and BDSM, perhaps we could add "poetry" and/or "miscellaneous ramblings"?

"Whisperings From..." is difficult to categorize, I know, so I put in BDSM. Not the best fit.

No rush; just wondering.

Thanks!

I've created an "Our Creative Sides" Category with "Poetry" and "Miscellaneous Ramblings" for starters. Let me know which stories you want moved. I'm also going to begin assigning moderators soon so you can moderate your own forum.
Title: Re: The Suggestion Box
Post by: caughtbymoonlight on August 06, 2014, 02:14:22 PM
Fabulous ideas!

I think "Whisperings From..." and "Eaten" could go into Poetry, even if Whisperings does not follow traditional poetic form.

Sign me up to moderate something or other. Where ever you need a little hand. :D

Thank you a bazillion for this. :D

Dude. I don't know how to program a popup like the chat box has yet. The chat loads every damned emote every time it's refreshed as it is (CTRL+F5 if you want to see) so it would take forever to load if I copied all the emotes into there. Phpfreechat does not make this easy! :( If there are particular ones you can't live without, let me know and I'll try to put them in there.

I don't think this has happened yet, I may be wrong, but I wanted to get my policy request in...

When the OP of a thread (person who started a thread) later requests the thread to be deleted, but other people have already replied to the thread and meaningful conversation has been had, I would like to ask that the policy be not to delete the thread. The OP is capable of retroactively blanking their posts but has no right to remove other people's posts except by politely asking them. (It's different if the posts are infringing but in that case they'd be already covered by other rules.)

Yes, of course I am talking about a particular case here but I didn't link to it because I do not want this to turn into a discussion of the member in question.

Also I'd like to register my approval of how the board currently works with regard to deleting posts, which is that you can edit but not delete. This is important in case a member deletes their posts and makes another member's replies look out of context, potentially causing serious trouble.

Thanks very much for your input, Ingy. I plan to keep the policy of allowing you lot to edit but not to delete. As you said, it's probably the fairest way to handle it.

I don't think Addie or I have deleted any threads that had replies yet, have we? We deleted a few where the OP clearly indicated we should, but I don't think any were first posts.

I'm verifying that when i looked at your profile as a guest (whilst logged out & caches all cleared), it definitely showed me your profile pics and wall messages. But as Hodor, I can't see all that on your profile. There is a ghost in the machine. Bloody software!

Mina (& Addie), I just changed the Guest Permissions so that they cannot view profiles at all. That should correct this problem. Albums marked Private should now only show to Buddies & Administrators, if you've got that option marked. Addie, I couldn't find anything with a Google search on the SMF Ultimate Profile that shows that this is an official bug, so I wonder if it isn't just something we cocked up?

EDIT: The only mod I found out there that would do this wasn't working, probably because of the "Ultimate Profile" mod we already have. And I don't think I'm near advanced enough that I can create an edit button there yet, so it's on the list of stuff to slave over when I have more time!

I think an 'Intro/Celebration' sub section under the Board Info might be a good idea. Move the Introduction thread and any other threads that are intros or celebration ones there. Maybe create a Birthday thread there but people still can create ones for members? We could offer congrats on a host of stuff in there, like for rep milestones, maybe hit you guys at 100(a few of you are over that already) or for 500, stuff like that. I remember RD having one and I think it was used some.

IMHO, it's pretty easy to SPAM your way to 25, but SPAMMING to 100 gets you noticed and stopped.

Just my uninformed guess...
Title: Re: The Suggestion Box
Post by: Ingenue on June 15, 2015, 04:36:46 PM
I can confirm some members raised concerns that the minimum was too low, because as RRH says, it's easy to spam your way to 25. Someone with mischief in mind could do that easily within a couple hours and then have access to members' photos. The limit is now raised to a higher number.

Addie has split the wife pics threads so those still only require 25 posts to view, because those are a specific fetish and the members who like wife-sharing have so far tended not to post much elsewhere. Needless to say, we're still watchful with those so nobody posts revenge porn or anything illegal.

When you're newly joined and horny, sometimes you just don't want to talk about anything but your particular fetish. I get that. It's so exciting to find people who are into this scary thing you're into and for awhile you maybe see them as simple providers of fap fodder. Anyone else?

Some folks who start out like that will calm down after awhile, contribute more generally and get to know folks, perhaps discover new kinks too; those are the ones who generally stick around.

Some of the women thought they noticed a pattern where some n00bs got their 25 posts and then never posted again, so the women thought the n00bs might have been getting their 25 just so they could perv on the Inner Wanktum. These ladies thought the bar should be higher and suggested 100, so I took their suggestion. Sorry, bjc! You know the saying: POST MOAR!  XD

Have you ever thought about having an 'extreme' discussion section? I think this was brought up before. If there was an extreme section, is this something where we could talk about anything or are we still limited? (ex. beastiality - just an example, I'm not into that).

Addie may have a different answer but it's my understanding that we can't include any stuff on our site that might be against the laws of the country where our server is located or we could risk our host terminating us ( eg paedophilia, bestiality, etc ). So no, we can't just create a free-for-all section, even if it's private and not seen by search engines, cos all it would take to shut us down is someone with a chip on their shoulder gaining access and tattling to our host.

Perhaps an Extreme section would still be a good idea that would section off some of the stuff that might put off the casual viewer ( like blood n guts, CBT, extreme insertions or what have you ). Feel free to flesh out suggestions?

To unsubscribe from a topic:
http://wiki.simplemachines.org/smf/Notifications#Unsubscribing_from_a_Topic_or_Board
Quote from: SMF website
On the Notifications page, you will be presented with a list of every topic and board you have subscribed to. To unsubscribe from topics or boards, check the boxes for the respective topics and boards and then click on Unsubscribe.

To quickly unsubscribe from a topic or a board which you are currently viewing, you may select the Unnotify button which is located above and below the topic display or the message index of a board

Let me know if that's no longer true. But I just set "Notify" on this thread and I see the "Unnotify" option so apparently it works. :)

Btw to see the list of threads you're subscribed to, go to
Profile > Modify Profile > Notifications

then you can select which threads you want to "Unnotify".
Title: Re: The Suggestion Box
Post by: Ingenue on August 16, 2015, 03:01:00 PM
The problem is, the notifications function doesn't cover threads you get "New replies" updates for merely because you've posted in them.
Title: Re: The Suggestion Box
Post by: RayPistonprowl on August 16, 2015, 03:09:10 PM
@Ingenue can you post the steps I need to do in order to get that result? I've honestly not used that feature so I don't know how it works yet. I know how to click the "Notify" button but that's about all.
Title: Re: The Suggestion Box
Post by: Ingenue on August 16, 2015, 03:19:59 PM
When I log in, the first thing I check after messages and notifications is "Show new replies to your posts (http://www.rapecage.com/forum/index.php?action=unreadreplies)". Any thread I've posted in, if it has new replies I haven't read, is listed there.

I think that's the same feature Red and HP also meant?
Title: Re: The Suggestion Box
Post by: RayPistonprowl on August 16, 2015, 03:28:51 PM
Ingy, @Addie can correct me if I'm wrong but I believe the "Show new replies to your posts" is entirely separate from the "Notifications" feature and isn't affected by your "Notifications" preferences. It just does what it says on the tin and shows you every thread you've posted in that has gotten new replies.
Title: Re: The Suggestion Box
Post by: Ingenue on August 16, 2015, 03:33:34 PM
Exactly so. So, it's that feature that it would be awesome if you could turn off particular... unwanted threads, without being so antisocial as to go back and remove your posts.

(This feature is also why I never post in things like the forced impregnation thread, so I don't have to deal with replies to that crossing my dashboard.)
Title: Re: The Suggestion Box
Post by: RayPistonprowl on August 16, 2015, 03:47:54 PM
I'm not sure SMF has any feature or mod for handling that particular issue, Ingy. :shrug: But I don't tend to use the "Show New Replies To Your Posts" feature so I never encountered this before. ( I just thumb through threads that show new posts, which is essentially the same - and there are many boards I just leave unread altogether as they're not an interest of mine - I could just mark them 'Read' but I can't be arsed )

We do have an Ignore Boards mod, but it doesn't permit you to ignore individual threads. (Profile > Modify Profile > Ignore Boards Options) I think that overrides the New Posts issue in the 'Show New Replies To Your Posts' but it probably wouldn't change the Notifications feature, which you'd have to change by using Unnotify.

For whatever it's worth, I read the How to subscribe/unsubscribe threads (http://www.rapecage.com/forum/index.php/topic,1121.0.html) thread. When I went to my own profile notifications to see if I could unnotify a thread, my profile said "You aren't receiving notifications on any boards right now." - so I couldn't unnotify. I checked out the other way it suggested, too. I think when it talks about getting notifications on topics, it's talking about an umbrella notification for a larger subsection, like Rape Fantasy Stories, opposed to specific threads, such as Extreme Insertables. It would be super cool if we could figure out how to unnotify specific threads, but I'm thinking it may not be entirely possible. Thank you, @RayPistonprowl for looking into this and trying!  :x

Unnotify works with threads, not boards themselves. Ignore Boards works on boards. So I think Ray has it right, and there's nothing more I can do without some programming knowledge.  :shrug: Sorry! Ingy probably has your best suggestion: if you don't want the thread popping up in the "Show New Replies To Your Posts", then you have to abstain from posting in that thread! :facepalm:

Thanks, francesco, but SMF does give us an automatic way to prune those. I simply haven't used it yet because our forum is still relatively small. I'm also trying to respect that many people may sign up to read but are timid about posting (the number of people who actively post here is comparatively quite small!).

Actually, RD was more in three categories; a small group (about 20 or so) regular posters who were generally on every day or were at least active in the chatroom, a larger group of occasional posters (three to four times a week) and then the vast majority were lurkers or signed up and then never returned.

Sounds like we're essentially the same, then. Plus you guys seem to have scattered to the four winds a lot after RD went down so suddenly, so a lot of people may have found homes elsewhere in the interim.

i was in the "occasional poster" group on RC, I think we have a very large percentage of the then "regular" that kept in contact otherwise in the interim, and sorta migrated as a group from forum to forum (sorry for the herbivore metaphor  :D )  but i don't see any of the "occasional" i used to interact with

When RD went down I shepherded a wee band of regs round looking for a new home. But as I tried out other Rape Fantasy sites I found why RD had been so popular - the competition was rather crap. A number of women who tried competitors reported back that they were harassed by and had their private information abused by admins and moderators on those boards. Worse, when they reported the infractions to the site owners, the owners still thought they were in high school apparently and shrugged it off because their 'friends' would never lie! :rolleyes: Too often I got the impression that these sites were just vanity projects for wannabe insta-doms to swing their dicks round and lord 'power' over the plebs.

It's on the list. That will require a mod for a new theme that I'll then have to customize, and I think most everything on the SMF site is now outdated. If I can't find something then I'll have to make it from scratch, and that will be a real chore. I'm open to suggestions.

Could there ever possibly be a bookmark option? If you're reading a long story or trying to keep up with a roleplay that's progressing faster than you can read, you can put a bookmark in it? Then under the Profile Info section on your profile page there could be a "Show Bookmarks" link. I want to say RD had something like that, but I hear they wrote a lot of their own codes. Maybe a bookmark is impossible. Just wondering. :)

@Addie Yes darling, I know you're buried, but one day when you've got time is it possible to tart up the Profiles page to include a section for Stories like EssenceofRed has done with the Interests section of her profile? http://www.rapecage.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=10

I think that's brilliant and gives interested readers a way to find all of an author's stories in one place. It would be good for Roleplays as well. Perhaps we could just replace the video/media section since that bit appears outdated and few know how to use it.

...that bit appears outdated and few know how to use it.

I resemble that remark.

I second the whole re-purpose of that section. I've already followed @EssenceofRed  in her method of listing story links on her page. A worthwhile approach, but built in would be better still.

I was wondering about a sub-forum on the board just for contest entries. A place to aggregate.

Quote
Note: Power Grab Ahead.

If I had broader Mod abilities that encompassed the whole Stories Area I could clone the entries and paste them into the sub... with a section for each cycle... color coding titles would be cool so I could highlight the winner for that cycle but a simple [Winner] prefix to the title would work as well...

Probably too much to ask for the forum creation power and restructure abilities.  :whistle:

Could there ever possibly be a bookmark option? If you're reading a long story or trying to keep up with a roleplay that's progressing faster than you can read, you can put a bookmark in it? Then under the Profile Info section on your profile page there could be a "Show Bookmarks" link. I want to say RD had something like that, but I hear they wrote a lot of their own codes. Maybe a bookmark is impossible. Just wondering. :)

@Addie  perhaps something like these? They're all old but perhaps they could be adapted?
http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?action=search;basic_search=bookmark (http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?action=search;basic_search=bookmark)

I tried one of them and broke the forum a few times. It worked ok on my test server so I'll need to find what's different and fix that first. I'll have to get back to this.

@Addie Could we get some clarification from our host on what constitutes bestiality? We've some writers who want to know where the grey areas are. I know both characters must be fully human or fully animal at the time they shag, so there's no interspecies shagging, but what about a story where a girl is part-puppy but her Master is fully human? What about a dragon raping an elf?

Post by: Red Right Hand on April 25, 2016, 06:35:23 PM
In my experience it hinges on Fantasy.... Not "me and that bull mastiff shagging is my fantasy," but an identifiable Fantasy Realm being written about. That let's in Dragon, Ogre, Goblin porn, etc.

How is a girl part-puppy?  :shocked:  The creation of another "world" that identifiably makes it "not real" seems to be the key.

I've edged around this issue a couple of times. Once through manipulation of narrative shenanigans and once by using a dream within an identifiably Fantastic Realm.

Of course, Our Host would be the final arbiter.
Title: Re: The Suggestion Box
Post by: Addie on April 26, 2016, 10:41:10 PM
@RayPistonprowl The short answer is both critters need to be either fully human or fully non-human to "legally" fuck. I think they gray areas are when something like an elf is so human that nobody sees a problem with them fucking a human. I'll check with our host and get back to you.

Just to add to it.

Theres more of a grey area here though... At what point does a humanoid non-human become enough non-human for it to get against the rules? Fantasy (as in setting not fetish) is rife with just about every human animal hybrid type species, and their is half breeds of said species running around. Does turning a woman into a cat-woman by adding a pair of cat ears and tail into her description. At what point is she too far non-human to screw a human.... or too human to be screwed by something obviously not human. Not to mention things that utterly confusing such as Centaur, and Fauns.
The defining feature for me has always been intelligence.

Secondly given the current exception. If the current exception is to be more clearly understood:
The way I understood this originally was that Human & Werewolf was okay, and a Werewolf & Wolf was okay.But from the discussions currently it seems only Werewolf & Werewolf or Wolf & Wolf are okay and the moment something has fur it is not okay for a human. Does my new interpretation below more clearly reflect the actual state of the rules or am I in error again?


One "bestiality" exception that we will permit involves participants who are BOTH fully animal or BOTH partly animal (as with werewolves), or are so at the time the sex takes place. The key is to avoid sexual interactions between full humans and full animals.

@DickBiggers I believe Addie asked the programmer and he said he refused to add such a feature cos system messages make the program too busy and heavy and taxing on the server or sommat. He wanted to keep it lightweight. Sorry, no plans to change that!

5. Perhaps tweak the old TOpic Descriptions mod (http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=3012 -- it's been updated for 2.0.11 so maybe they fixed the problem with saving to the database?) and put that in Stories section? Perhaps we can tweak a special the Custom Form mod? http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=1279

The only thing with the ratings though @RayPistonprowl is how many members are actually rating stories they've read? That makes for a very small margin (I think) of rated stories at all, let alone ones that are rated highly...

Also, agree 100% on better functionality of the search and being able to search for tags if possible....

@RayPistonprowl The free version of Fanfics can certainly be tweaked, but though it has "Likes", it doesn't have a proper ratings system and you can only search on the story summary and not the story itself. SMF's own search function doesn't work on stories submitted in that system, which have their own search function. The likes can't be sorted in any way.

There is a paid version ($50) of Fanfics (http://www.kaerowebs.com/index.php?action=products;id=2) that includes ratings, but there's no online demo that shows ratings in action so I don't know if you can sort stories by rating. I do like that you can view all stories and their descriptions on a single page so you can browse for stuff that interests you. The paid version also has its own Tags system. Let me know if you want me to risk $50 to see if this could work for us, but keep in mind that we'll then have two Stories forums (old & new) and that could get confusing. I doubt we could convince all writers to move their stuff over to the Fanfics system, as it would involve resubmitting all of it. The other question is SEO and how search engines would find the Stories. When I get more time I will try to write the developer and see if any of this is workable.

Thanks, @Addie . I see the Bookmarks thingy got added, that's good.

I'd really like to see the Stories section not become a totally separate section like Fanfics if that's the way it's going to be organised in two separate sections. Ideally I'd simply like there to be a (1) sortable ratings column and (2) A description section so people can read what the stories are about before committing, perhaps see the tags there.

I've a few more requests and will try to list them separately so you can tick them off.

If we had a subforum for authors and RPers to put their bibliography up that would help with this angle. It's really up to each writer to supply the synopsis. That was in my list of suggested experiments. I'm not sure there is any better way to do this. If the synopsis appears with each thread title in forum view it will cut down on the number of threads showing on page 1 or make page 1 a long scroll... And lead to an inconsistent look as some authors might choose to not fill in that field.

@RayPistonprowl No such mod currently exists, sorry. If people suspect someone of being the same person as another account, they can ask and we can manually investigate the IPs. You can do that here within SMF without doing a database query. Just look at Profile > Profile Info > Track User. I did a manual scan and found a couple more dupes. I sent out messages to the remaining few who share terrestrial IP's and will send you info on any I find a need to ban.

@Addie I know I'm a demanding bastard of late but I'm trying to write this shit down whilst I'm thinking of it. :facepalm:

Are we getting targeted for spam again? Can you investigate? Our visitors jumped from 40-odd per day to 70 today. Unless we got promoted somewhere without our knowledge, I've no idea why our visitor # would jump like that. I don't see a bunch of banned IPs in the error log so I don't know where all this traffic is coming from.

EDIT: wtf is SeznamBot ?? I'm calling spammer.
I've investigated the rest, and it's just the usual spammers and ghost referrers from netbynet.ru, poneytelecom.eu, corbina.ru, etc. They're blocked. All the search engine stuff (Google, Bing, Baidu, Yandex, Seznambot) are legit. Since we tweaked our analytics and this is a dynamic site, we have a lot of stuff getting constantly indexed.

@Addie should we really expect that bloody many spiders? Right now our stats are;
26 Guests, 14 Users (3 Buddies, 15 Spiders)

There are more spiders than users! :faint: Something seems off.

SUGGESTION:

Get rid of Lobby in the chatrooms.

Right now, it seems like no one ever uses the other rooms unless someone complains in Lobby about an RP developing, which sometimes feels like the RPers are being banished for daring to be sexual on a sex-themed web chat site.

And when there are different interpretations of what's going on, or people just don't listen to the complaints (or perhaps, an RPer has a complainer on Ignore for whatever reason) then this can lead to unpleasantness.

While Lobby may be intended as a "launching off" point from where people go to other rooms, that's not the way chat is working right now. Everyone just stays in Lobby and does chat, discussion, RP and whatnot all at once and that seems to be leading to awkwardness for both sides.

It'd be much better if, when you log into chat, you're invited to choose which room you want to enter so if you're after discussion, you choose a discussion room and if you're more likely to want to flirt or RP, then you go to one of those rooms. It's a definite drawback that you can't easily be in multiple rooms in new chat like you could with old chat (although on desktop it's possible to have multiple browser tabs for each room you want to be in)

Maybe everyone would all congregate in a discussion room again, and this idea wouldn't solve the problems that seem to be endemic in Lobby, but I feel like it's worth a try.

Post by: Addie on September 09, 2016, 10:49:44 PM
Sorry, Kitty, we won't be getting rid of the Lobby. I did post a clarification in the Rules on how we expect people to handle roleplays in the Lobby though: http://www.rapecage.com/forum/index.php/topic,8.msg129424.html#msg129424

Nobody is trying to make roleplayers feel rejected or unsexy or anything else. Don't take it personally. The Lobby is good for rubbing elbows and flirting, but once you start rubbing more than elbows :naughty: use some discretion and respect the room!

I agree this sucks. The code for the chat room is a bit more complex than I know how to work with yet, so I can't yet make the changes to allow for people to be in multiple rooms at the same time easily. Some of you know the workaround of opening multiple browser tabs.

The Lobby is just a starting place for everyone. Once you find a play partner, you can use the PM system, or you can invite multiple people to one of the two Group Roleplay Rooms. If those are full, you can use the old chat room.
Title: Re: The Suggestion Box
Post by: kittyumbrass on September 09, 2016, 11:24:35 PM
Sorry, but Lobby is the only place to be because nobody goes anywhere else unless they are already RPing and until something is done to change that it will remain a source of contention. No one wants to leave Lobby because that's where the people are.

The rule DOES make me feel rejected and unsexy. I don't really care what people are trying to achieve, that's what has been achieved. I understand why a rule is needed, and people have to find a way to rub along, but I feel like the rule is used as a great big hammer.

I don't have any sense of what one person thinks is flirting and another thinks has crossed the line, so I feel like I'm stuck. I dare not flirt because I'm afraid people will object. To get from "flirting" to "RPing" there needs to be some crossover space where it gets worked out if it's something to take elsewhere or if it's not, and if (as you put it) more things than elbows are getting rubbed, and that that's supposed to lead to an actual scene. That takes time to figure out and it seems some people think that shouldn't happen in Lobby either. When people say "stop RPing in Main" when I haven't even started RPing then how the heck am I supposed to find a play partner in the first place?

I just feel cut dead. I don't feel safe getting flirty in chat :(

If "The Lobby is just a starting place for everyone" then the rooms labelled for discussion (the "Rape Room" and the "BDSM Room") should be in use for that purpose by people who don't want to be bothered by RPs, surely?

I've tried to stick to the rule since New Chat came in but I'm really unhappy with trying to reconcile what feels like two impossible criteria, and sometimes it just seems impossible to please everyone.

I did wonder if the 6th room (Caged Vixens?) might be intended as a flirt-and-negotiate room, but again, if no one knows that's what it's for and no one ever goes there, how are the flirty people to know that's the safe place for them? Whatever. I think I just won't go in Lobby any more.

Ack, I've made my case. I've had my say. Whatever happens happens. I'm just too tired out by it all now.

@kittyumbrass , again, please don't take it personally if someone decides they're not in the mood to watch others get their sexytimes on. The Lobby is meant for flirting. This is a sex site. But you don't always know who's feeling jealous that day, or who just wants to talk about unsexy general stuff, or whatever. Just listen to the room. They'll let you know when it's getting uncomfortable.

(And you're always sexy to me. :* )
Title: Re: The Suggestion Box
Post by: kittyumbrass on September 09, 2016, 11:51:00 PM
I don't think I take anything personally.

I'm fine with people deciding that they don't want to watch. My problem isn't with them but with the way the current set-up means sexytimes get shoved to one side and treated as The Problem.

As for "just listen to the room" - that's pretty much the problem! a. I'm just not very good at that, though I try hard to do better and be aware of others; b. often the room seems to be pushy (I don't know, maybe because I miss other cues?); c. sometimes if they're uncomfortable at a point that to me feels like random flirting, then I can't take anything elsewhere because to me nothing has started yet!

And it's point c. that has had me frustrated over and over again since New Chat came in, and that's why I finally let it all out tonight. As I say, I feel like I can't even flirt without people saying it makes them uncomfortable. So to me, the Lobby is not meant for flirting but it's the only place to flirt because it's the only place where people are around (unless they're already RPing in which case, I'd only be interrupting them). Which brings me back to why I think Lobby is causing the problem.

I accept that I'm not going to convince anyone, but I just want people to accept that my feelings are valid too and that this isn't good for everyone.

@kittyumbrass I know we have some exceptionally intelligent but socially quirky people here, Asperger's and autistic scale etc., and you may be among that group. It's tricky and stressful for some people to read social cues. If that's you, try not to get too bogged down in minutiae of exactly where that line between flirting and roleplaying is. Just listen to people. If they're rude about it, send 'em my way and I'll have a talk with them, but take care not to let your own fears and insecurities make you feel worse than they intend. Just invite anyone who wants to watch over to a new room, maybe tell them how to do the multiple rooms workaround, and don't let one or two people get you down.

I've been trying to figure out how to put a list of rooms on the front page so you can enter them directly and bypass the Lobby altogether, but for now, the Lobby is simply the main jumping off point for everyone.

Well, it is me. The trouble is, if I don't know where the line is, then I don't feel able to do either.

I don't know what they intend! What I know is that they want me to stop, presumably because I make them uncomfortable, and they want me to go somewhere else if I want to carry on.

Quote
Just invite anyone who wants to watch over to a new room, maybe tell them how to do the multiple rooms workaround, and don't let one or two people get you down.

I do that whenever there's anything actually happening and an RP is ready to go! But if I'm just flirting and nothing's happening yet, then I can't do that because there's nothing to move into the new room! At that stage I don't even know if the other person wants an RP - I might not even know if I want one! When flirts get shut down because someone else thinks it's an RP or it's just a bit too spicy for their tastes, I feel bad for making people uncomfortable, and resentful because I can't get anything going in the first place, and whatever might have got going is just quashed entirely. It makes Lobby feel unsafe.

Like I say, I don't expect any changes out of this any more, I just want to feel like people accept that these feelings are valid.

@kittyumbrass I've been in a few sex chat rooms in my time and it was common for everyone to start in a lobby and then filter off to private messages or rooms as their flirting turned more serious. If the uncomfortable person didn't want to see any flirting at all then they're in for an uphill battle since that's rather the default on a sex site! But in general the lobby should be inclusive so if you're doing something that not everyone can enjoy, take it where all participants are cool with it. Nobody's saying your feelings aren't valid. :hug:
Title: Re: The Suggestion Box
Post by: kittyumbrass on September 10, 2016, 10:46:34 AM
I guess I'm used to places where in general that was not the case. And it has frustrated me every time I've gone to spaces where that happened. I hate it!

I'm used to spaces that don't have a "lobby" but people go into whichever rooms suit them and the mix they want to have. Some rooms are chat only and others are RP only and some are a mix of the two, and those are where flirting properly happens.

But, the point that I'm making is that if it's just flirting then there isn't anything to take elsewhere, it just kills it dead. I've felt shut down so often for doing what has always seemed acceptable flirting elsewhere :shrug: So it feels like it's impossible to get something spontaneous here without risking upsetting people.

And, I feel like I'm being told to change how I feel to "fit in". So, I do feel like my feelings are being dismissed rather than being accepted for what they are. I get that my ideas for changing things to make it easier are either not feasible right now, or just not accepted. So I just want it to be understood that right now, the situation is not comfortable for me. And it doesn't seem possible to make it comfortable for everyone.
Title: Re: The Suggestion Box
Post by: Carlosdevil on September 10, 2016, 10:58:15 AM
I'm really not sure what the issue is here and maybe I'm just dense or perhaps someone could explain this better to me. So far as I know, there is nothing wrong with the chat rooms that have been set up for RPs and such. There is also Private Messaging and Whispers available for those who want to RP privately. Why does an RP have to take place in the main Lobby? Certainly if there's nobody around or at least if there is nobody active in the Lobby and two people want to go for it, there is no objection but if there are people who would prefer chatting in the Lobby, why is it such an effort to take your RP into a different venue? There are all sorts of options for that.

As far as I know, nobody has ever discouraged flirting in the Lobby. At any given time, there's a ton of it going on, some of it fairly graphic in nature. If anyone complains about flirting in the Lobby, I would imagine that someone (likely an Admin or Mod who was complained to) would probably remind them gently that they are in a sexually-oriented site and that flirting is a part of the overall attraction of RC in general. In any case, I flirt like a mutha in the Lobby and have never had anyone express any discomfort with it. I've also had tons of RPs in the lobby; they've almost all been conducted  via Whisper or through Private Chat. I've never felt this inconvenient or unwieldly. Once in a great while I'll do something in the room, but that is generally when something of a group nature is going on in the Lobby. When others come in, I have no problem moving a group play into another room.

I guess maybe I see this as the price of being part of RC. I have no desire to make people uncomfortable, so I try as much as possible to accommodate them. Maybe this is just me being totally oblivious (and my apologies if I am; this isn't meant to be a put-down of anybody) but I honestly don't understand what the big deal is.
Title: Re: The Suggestion Box
Post by: southernbelle on September 10, 2016, 11:55:11 AM
Just my opinion:

I spend a lot of my time in chat because I enjoy real time conversations. I have no idea what inspired this conversation nor do I know all the parties involved. With all that said here it goes.

There is such a thin line between playful flirting and an actual roleplay. People have different opinions on where that line is. I have seen @kittyumbrass flirting kinda playful playing versus her actual roleplays. They are very different. I have had the pleasure of watching in another room when it does develop into a roleplay. When that happens she does in fact move it to another room. Then she invites all who want to continue to watch. I'm not sure of anyone else.

Now I won't deny others have played in the main lobby. When this happens I just "advert my eyes" else where or I talk around them. As long as I've been here people have chased each other around chat, spanked each other, and hell even one evening we had a virtual pillow fight. Maybe I'm just not seeing what the problem is here. To me... This place is a sex site, so I expect to see sex :shrug:.

I do understand there needs to be rules and that there are also other rooms available for such things. Here lately I have stayed out of chat a lot because more and more it seems others are offended by someone's else's kink. Honestly, that is what makes this place great. So many people, so many different kinks and they are all in one place. I've learned that if something happens, or said, I don't like... I just look away. No one forces me to watch.

Like I said, maybe I just don't understand the problem. :hug: to kitty though cause someone should never feel scared to share themselves here.

@kittyumbrass , I'm operating here on drugs for pain and not enough sleep, so forgive my general fuckwittiness. We need a catch-all room for people to mix in. Do you want a Rape Room to be the default maybe, and encourage flirting AND roleplay in there and then let people who do NOT want that to filter off into a side lobby? Is that the suggestion?

Everyone give me feedback. :popcorn:

I'm guilty of crossing the flirt/RP line plenty in chat, but it's extremely rare when I actually proceed to a real RP that needs its own room. I suppose it's still flirting up to that point. Honestly the reason I don't RP in public has mainly to do with past experience elsewhere when I had lots of play partners and they'd get jealous of each other, so it was best to assume nobody wanted to see my dick unless in private!

If maybe the "rooms" panel could show automagically whenever you enter chat, coupled with restyling one or more of the room options as "here's a cool place to roleplay without interruptions, yay!" that might all drive home the idea that there ARE separate rooms, which I think may part of the difficulty for people who don't notice that.

Then even if the visitor chooses to go to the lobby/general chat area to begin with, they'll hopefully remember the other rooms exist if they start up a hawt scene.

@Addie I didn't see this in the Chat Room admin panel before, but maybe this will help you? Under "Admin CP: Rooms" there's a line up top saying "In this section you can manage your list of chat rooms: create, edit, empty and delete rooms, set hidden rooms and set group permissions to see and enter hidden rooms. The first room in the list is a public room and cannot be deleted. Deleting a chat room will delete all the messages in it. Rooms can be accessed directly with URL like index.php?room=x where x is the ID of the room." Can't that be used to do Links from the front page directly to the Rooms? :idea: :idea: :idea:

As well, under the Chat "Settings" I changed this option ("When users enter the chat they load a list of rooms instead of room #1.") to "YES" but the Rooms list is not yet showing up when I enter the chat. What could I be doign wrong?
Title: Re: The Suggestion Box
Post by: kittyumbrass on September 10, 2016, 03:52:17 PM
I don't like the idea of it being a side-lobby, but maybe yes, a "flirt bar" lobby and a "serious,keep your hands to yourself" bar/lobby parallel?

Maybe it wouldn't work the way I hope it would. It's just, I'm used to servers where you connect and get a list of rooms, with descriptions, and the descriptions say what the rules are: e.g. "no RPing in-channel" or "high-protocol, s-types kneel and beg entry" or "RP room; entry is consent" or "chat and RP encouraged" so people automatically filter to what balance and rules work for them, and it's fairly clear what's okay and you know where to go for what level of flirt vs chat. (Edit to add: the thing with the rooms box to come up straight away would help, though still needs people not to follow the single group crowd. As things stand,people see 1 or 2 people in a different room, they assume RP)

I'm okay really, but this Lobby system does not work well for me and I feel it's better to have stated that openly and the reasons why. I accept we have to find some compromise or balance between all the competing needs and ways of being. I'd like something easier for me but I will find a way to cope.

Hmm... Ok for example. Someone once told me in a private message that they didn't like the idea of foxgirls. The idea of a tail creeper them out and they would prefer if I did not mention mine. :shrug:

Another was triggered by the word "spank". I understand that this word was a trigger for that person but it is also a common phrase around here unfortunately. Everybody is always spanking someone in chat. It is just small things like that.

I watched as a room of people made comments because someone said they were interested in incest play. Mind you the person had already left but my point is this. Why can people not just overlook the things don't like. I do it all the time.

I'm not a big gaming person so when chat fires up on a game topic or tech stuff I just don't get involved. When this ma y many people get to together in one place there will always be differences of opinions. I just don't understand why people just can't ignore the things that they don't want to see. :shrug:

I don't know but maybe the above suggested about a socialize room and a flirt room can be established. However I will say this for the mobile users. It is hard to navigate from room to room on a mobile phone. The private chats are hard. Which is why I don't do it.

@MemphisMWM We've disabled the other themes as we have customised this board to work best with a single theme. I suppose we could enable other themes but I think you'll miss some of the functionality if we do that. Perhaps the other admin @Addie can tell me if that's possible?

Thanks.  I don't want to put anyone to any trouble.  I will get used to it.

Does RU run on SMF? That isn't standard with SMF. If it's a mod, I've not found it yet. Would be fair to have such a mod though, since this software already enables people to stalk you by seeing when you last logged in! @randomgirl

Let me see if I can find a mod like that then. :-? I don't know if Addie knows how to write such a thing if it doesn't already exist though.

@randomgirl Ooh. I just thought of something. We use the Ultimate Profile mod, which replaces SMF's standard profile page. Is RU using the standard profile page or the Ultimate Profile page? If it's the standard, Addie should be able to copy the code from the original and paste it into the Ultimate Profile page. Let us know? @Addie

@randomgirl Go to your profile page there and let me know if it looks like your profile page here? The standard page looks more like this (different theme, but same content):

@RayPistonprowl @Ingenue If you can find the mod, maybe I can locate the relevant code and put it on the Ultimate Profile we use. It isn't standard.

@RayPistonprowl @MemphisMWM Sorry, this theme is the only one ready for primetime. I disabled the others since I haven't finished editing them. It's a bigger project than one would think! :facepalm:

@RayPistonprowl  you are more like the 10 minute comic relief in a horror film who sadly dies gruesomely, which is kinda funny to the audience, too soon.

@Addie Is there a way to make the Rage Cage text RED in the link tree up top? I'd like a better way for people to tell when they've walked into that forum. Is there a way to make ONLY the Rage Cage appear in RED or is that above your head? Since Ignore Boards is an old mod I don't think it completely blocks threads from there so they continue to show up in "replies to your posts" and "most recent messages", so we need some way for people to know when they've blundered in there.

Studies have shown that when people are hungry, thirsty and sleep deprived, they are generally more grumpy. So I vote that whenever people try to click on rage cage a pop up comes up saying "don't go in, you dumbfuck if you are hungry, angry, and/ or sleepy. So fuck off you fucking monkey, till you are in a good mood"

:P :exit: :hide:

@Addie
The Yahoo Messenger icon is no longer showing on our profiles or posts. Probably has to do with Yahoo largely binning that service. Can you replace the icon with something else?

@Addie Was reading that Baidu (China) and Yandex (Russia) spiders are usually wastes of bandwidth that eat up resources and provide few quality user referrals and may in fact enable more spammers. Can we block those spiders?

And more spammers are getting through. Can we ensure all SMF software is updated? Hopefully it's more secure.

This is an idea I bring from seeing it in another kinky chat/community site that I deny visiting or enjoying :uhoh:

One of the chatrooms there runs a weekly "sub auction" (which sometimes gets inverted as a "Dom raffle").

The way it works is that there's an auctioneer, at the start every bidder has a pot of 20 tokens to bid with. Prior to the auction, subs/bottoms contact the auctioneer to volunteer as "lots", with info about gender preference, turn-ons, limits, and duration of contract (i.e. sold just for the night, or for the whole week, or other number of days). On that site there's a usually a limit of 5 lots per auction (on a first come first sold basis).

Bidding is as normal, if more than one buyer bids the maximum 20, then the winner is chosen at random.

I couldn't help thinking that a lot of people here would enjoy a Rapemeat Auction of the same type and it might be a regular way of getting more people in Chat (and also getting more chat RPs going - or maybe even sparking some board/email RPs based on the theme)

(I am also tickled by the idea of having a "rapist raffle" every so often where our esteemed Rapists volunteer to be lots and the victim-types buy raffle tickets, to be randomly chosen as their target!)

I would certainly be willing to organise this and play auctioneer (at least for the first few times, to get things rolling - I utterly deny wanting to be sold at the auction myself at some point!) if there's sufficient interest. Just need a little advice how best to advertise it on this site to get people aware and up for it?

Spoiler Tags

I would of sworn they were working earlier, but for whatever reason when I look back at my ideas thread, they don't seem to be working anymore.

They are quite helpful, for hiding unnecessary details, unless someone is specifically interested in looking deeper. Such as in Roleplay ideas.

Suggestion: we have more than 1000 usernames taken by people who have registered and never posted, now that you are getting four or five new members a day, choosing unused usernames is gonna be harder and harder... maybe you should prune some down

Thanks, @francesco165 We purge members who have never logged in every few months. We haven't however deleted people who haven't posted at all or in a long time. We may start doing that.

I also like this suggestion, but care needs to be taken.  We have several chat room regulars who hardly post at all if not ever.  Don't want to catch them in the inactive net.

I also know some people log in once in a blue moon only to read. (Although I suppose they don't need an account to read.) Still, I think this could get touchy.

Aye @DickBiggers , we'll ensure the purges are based not on posts but on last login.

I would suggest something like 0 post AND more than six months from last connection

Also, "escaping the purge" could be as easy as posting one game replay... if you advertise said purge in chat also, it would take anyone 5 second to post once and be done  :shrug:

@RayPistonprowl I probably won't beat you to it. I'm pretty buried right now. I'm still checking messages, but unless you specifically tell me I need to do something, I'm going to be letting you do the admin-level stuff for now.
