Now that the Mods are no longer even pretending to care about cartoon kiddie porn
can the name of the site be changed to n0nce.com? Then us old-school, non-paedo regulars can set up a new b3ta that isn't overrun with teenage wannabe child rapists.

Your question engine is fucked. It's asked a bunch of friendless autistic virgins to tell stories about stag nights.

Navigation buttons (next/prev) for QotW threads/answers

Do that and I'll be so happy I'll let you finger my dog*

redesign frontpage to allow 600px wide images
400px is a bit tiny these days when even the smallest of monitors and laptops has at least a 1024px wide screen res (and I remember when 400px it was a huge improvement over what we had before).

And while we're at it, why not start a month-long compo to allow users to redesign the FP themselves to spec? I'll be happy to code it for free (HTML, CSS, Javascript and some PHP).

can you reduce timeouts to such an extent that everyone who's on less than 10Gbps will get timeout errors and will have to refresh each page five or six times to get it to load
this will increase your pageviews and thus your income

true, it'll infuriate the users and make the site totally unusable, but who cares about the plebby uneducated users, the pageviews count above all else

Increase GIF Sizes
Can you up the size of GIFs to something like 1-2Mb?

400Kb is a bit small for GIFs nowadays, especially as screen resolutions are constantly increasing and the vast majority of people have broadband now

Regarding ignore functions
Thanks to users 84237 & the Hellish Hedgehog for clearing up my misunderstandings about ignore.

It strikes me there is only one very obvious flaw with Ignore 2.0 - that it is subject to circumvention. In my opinion to make the system perfect, although 'logging out to view all comments' is something that can never be prevented for obvious reasons, the authentication system when a user re-logs in to reply to a post by a commenter who has blocked him/her CAN be improved - the system should reject the attempted reply.

It could be done relatively simply by simply referring to the parent post for every submitted post and checking the parent poster did not have the poster on ignore, or vice-versa

In order not to stifle the possibility of debate this should only be applied to 'parent posts' - iE prevent anyone who is blocked from directly replying to the blocker's posts, but dont prevent them replying to others' replies to those posts

I believe this is necessary and disagree with some analysis of the 'troll issue' as I can see a qualitative difference between comments on QOTWs of 2 years ago or more and those of today, with recently significantly stepped-up irrelevant criticism, posting of deliberately hurtful remarks, and undermining of anonymity. I joined this site after reading the historic QOTWs and wanting to be part of the society that created them. I have no desire to be part of a society based on the art of upsetting people.

Particularly with relation to a handful of users the principle purpose of their presence seems to be to post potentially hurtful remarks about other users. We've established the lack of moderatorial willpower to tackle this issue directly - give us the tools to tackle it properly ourselves.
