Please remove Zeke's mod powers. He is not a mod anymore, and he should not be the one making these decisions.

This isn't the first time he's done this either. He has also locked a thread that was technically breaking no rules in the past that was headed towards an interesting direction, albeit dramatic. But it's not like anyone actually needed to be protected in that thread. In fact, I bet the person who was the reason it ended up locked was just f*cking around.

Satan, i've not 'taken away' anything.
He was hired for coding.
Being able to code for the site requires access to the server right now.
Access to the server means he can do whatever the fuck he wants anyway, with the mod tag only making any day to day things easier / quicker like moving threads or html posting to name a couple basic things.
Almost literally a formality.
He was handling reports because he wanted to, not because he was hired to do it or whatever, but because a user reported an issue and he wanted to fix it.
All I've done is ask him not to do that anymore, and not just because of this single instance but because this exact situation has happened before, only with less publicity.

To use mondo's gun squad analogy, it's like asking your demolitions expert to stop handling the sniper rifles because while being able to fire sticks of dynamite several kilometre's using one is quite impressive, it's not a good use for the sniper rifle or the dynamite.

Practical as in having the privileges that comes with the mod account.
Not a mod as in moderating. I think I made a bad job of separating the two.

Devil trips I guess.

Deleting might be too far, but i think it is time to rethink /meta/'s place on the site, and scale it back tremendously.

Posting on each board the relevant materials to each board works perfectly; see, the /dis/ deletion sticky...

it would be much better if we limited what /meta/ could be used for even further... namely, limiting it to only site wide changes and questions, while leaving individual and board related questions to the boards or individuals via private messaging or e-mail.

it seems to be a too little, too late measure, but it would help to scale back the negative atmosphere that meta has had on conversations... and maybe make for a more cooperative, inclusive feeling, rather than an exclusive one.

/meta/ shouldn't have a meta community. no "meta ponies" clique... and while we no longer have one, maybe this could be a bulwark against future encroachment. what do you think?

I think the last time /meta/ had a clique was like, a year and a half ago. And if we're talking the original clique, yeesh, we died out in like, spring of 2012. Sparkling Lime, Soldier, Hipster, Ion Sturm, that dude who always posted Gilda and answered technical questions... It was just people who wanted to help at any rate. If there was any secret Illuminati aspect to it, I have a feeling that had more to do with the secret identities, absent leadership, and lack of overall structure.

But yeah, whatevs, current administration seems to have things under control, as has been stated.

I didn't always post Gilda. It just happened more and more as I burnt out.

Unless there's another dude who also posted Gilda and answered technical questions, in which case, good on you, whoever you were.

And no, I'm not back.

The only thing that irks me sometimes is when site stuff gets moved to /meta/. Sometimes when something affects /oat/ or /oat/ users are questioning something, it's good to have that thread be allowed on /oat/. Feels like a way to stifle discussion by banishing it to another board sometimes.
But that's something that seems rarer nowadays so it's not a huge complaint.

Sorry if I've sounded skeptical, I once accidentally got into some trouble when a mod agreed to unban me without permission from the admin. He was really bad off after that and I never got to apologize to him.

WARNING: localstorage item 'settings.10' doesn't seem to be valid JSON.
>> No. 162450 ID: f0b862
settings.10 seems to record your post deletion password, which has become corrupt somehow.

resetting your password might fix it. Or deleting your local storage item if you know how to. I had a look at my item 'settings.10' and it was huge, all recording the same data. I deleted it since it seems to be taking excessive space. Not sure if this is intentional or not, I mean it seems excessive to sore the password for every single post one makes. It's not like there's much reason to change it often.

Shit is happening, let's hear /meta/'s opinion:


This thread may be used for discussion on how this would effect the boards, rather than the opinion of boards themselves, which is better served in the /chat/ thread.

Ponychan clocks are never actually accurate. You always have to set them manually. I should be -6, but I had to set it to -7, and now it's at -8.

If you have the 'force time correction' checkbox in Ponychan X marked, it should be handling your time zone offset for you. Ponychan's current setup makes these time zone issues far more difficult than they ever needed to be.

If you look at the sticky it doesn't look like anything is happening.

The Sweetie bot needs to be recharged or something.
