Quick! Let's get a list of quick fixes for Buddy!

Petite has a journal going here with things that have already been done/suggested.

Good call chipoleta!

Oh no what happened to the big thread we had ready for Buddy's return?

Rewrite the Rules of Conduct. Make it harder for Mods to selectively enforce the rules.

My outlook on your life.

if you accidentally click the numbers button you have to scroll all the way to the bottom to close it

Holy sh*t Buddy lives!

And maybe the numbers should be updated anyway because they're really outdated. They mention several users who haven't been here in forever, not to mention the Bush and hanging chad jokes...

But whoa, the 'online' symbols are working, the 'who's online' page seems to be fixed, and the birthdays are back!

So my main request:
Bring back all my old friends. It's so lonely here now.

Hm also I just posted something in the Newbies forum trying to welcome people but it doesn't appear when I go there.

YT knows you aren't a Newb...

This site desperately needs new members. We're running on fumes here.
2 months ago - Friday 3/29/19 - 10:29:06 PM EST (GMT-5)
Also, as a past web developer, I'd be happy to volunteer my services for free if Buddy needs help.

When clicking the NEW button to enter a thread, if there's an image posted on that page, it jumps to that instead of the latest post.

Also, the 900 character per post limit sometimes seems way too low. At least for the first post in a thread. I usually have to split journals into 3 or 4 posts, and then I have to respond to the people who replied after only reading my first 1 or 2 messages.... And I get it. If everyone was posting 3000+ characters at a time I'd be skimming a lot more messages, or just ctrl+f searching for 'Hael' and then ignoring the rest, but I feel like at least the first post in a thread could stand to be increased in character limite to at least 2000...

Also is it just me, or when you try embed an image from another site, does it always give you errors until you remove the 's' from 'https'? I assume this is because YT is one of the dwindling minority of websites that hasn't switched over the the much faster and much more secure 'https' protocol? But even if he doesn't want to do that, he could still make it automatically try dropping the s when the image fails to load.

Oh and to attract more young people I recommend adding the ability to make animated avatars of ourselves, to use emojis, and to add hashtags to every post. Then I recommend removing all of those features and never bringing them back.

And I think the idea has been suggested in the past for a feature that would let people block individual user's posts from showing up in their threads, or in any other thread they visit, and their threads from showing up on the forum pages.

And more importantly to block those users from seeing your own posts and threads, not just from posting in them. I can't see myself using it personally. (Except maybe to block all the mods and then I'll be able to do whatever I want! And then I'll block everyone else but me and I'll be all alone with the only person whose opinion really matters to me). But I have known several users here who were either driven away or went into hiding and stopped posting publicly because of harassment from particular users.

I actually just learned this week that you apparently can't block mods from PMing you. All this time, I thought we were working on an honor code basis with that unwritten rule.

The https thing is annoying, I agree. It does seem like a pretty easy/simple fix.

Not many sites are still http these days. Upgrading to https gives you a huge boost in speed as well as much better security.

OH also please let us upload multiple images at once. Ideally something like what whatsapp does where you can upload multiple pictures and add a caption to each and one of them is your dick except maybe not that last part.

Someone tried to block you?

...or were you trying to block a mod?
2 months ago - Friday 4/5/19 - 11:16:19 AM EST (GMT-5)
I actually just got curious about it myself. We have a rule that says "do not block Modbot" and I wondered how that could ever possibly be enforced (it's never come up). So I logged into an alter and tried to block myself and it didn't work.
