/hm/ needs better janitors/mods who will actually delete the shitty threads
>>581683 (this asspie only starting posting on /hm/ when you assigned a regular janitor/mod
to monitor over /hm/ a few weeks ago...I believe one of the janitors is involved with constantly
making these threads with this guys pics everyday of the week)
>>579950 (threads like this always show up on /hm/ and never get deleted despite there being
assigned janitors and mods, wtf?)
>>580880 (what this guy is doing is illegal, he poses as a girl on webcam and gets straight guys to get naked and jerk off for him, he belongs on the sexual offender registry along with other criminals IMO)
>>576218 (124 posts , 12 images ...this is typical of a /hm/ thread...all discussion no photos of handsome men posted. HM is suppose to be a image board right? Yet threads like this are allowed to last for weeks on end.)
Also child porn, jailbait, and underage twinks are constantly posted and left for hours on end on /hm/...
This is suppose to be /handsome men/, anyone who posts "twinks" should be automatically banned.
Do a better job at assigning janitors/mods m00t. Even better create an automatic system that allows threads which get enough votes against it to be voted off for deletion.
/s/ should be the model that /hm/ follows...yet you have allowed /hm/ to become a trainwreck!
non-Ascii-text error screen

This screen is very frustrating.
Why not just *tell me* where the non-ascii text is? Even sanitizing my post automatically, or replacing non-ascii charachters with "???", would be better than stonewalling me with a vague error message.
I mean, I'm ahead of the curve in that I happen to have an idea what characters are and are not ascii, and I *still* struggle to edit my posts after I see this message. I can only imagine how someone a little less computer-literate might feel (and you don't have to be a granny to not know what ascii encoding does and does not encompasses)
Basically, if I've typed 2000 characters and am then presented with this error, there's a good chance I will fruitlessly scan my post with frustration for a while before scrapping the whole thing. *those* are the kind of posts this bad error handling is pruning from the site - legit content.
Obviously some sort of real-time or retrospective highlighting would be ideal, but even appending the error message with the offending characters (or even a list of frequently used non-ascii characters) for people to CTRL-F would circumvent this problem.
As a bare minimum, the post *must* already be pre-parsed if I'm seeing this error in the first place, so even just propagate and append to the error message that first non-ascii character encountered - couldn't be easier to implement.
I would welcome any discussion around this issue as it's a big peeve of mine.
Why is /pol/ So Fucking Retarded?

Is it because you finally figured out that the stormfucks run that bitch and there's no point attempting to reason with a bunch of loose anus-ed mongrels, who shit into eachothers mouths, then fuck their shitty mouths with their cocks, thus getting tons of feces installed into their urethras?
I think so. Remember to look out for the same tired rhetoric ("naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews"). The same key phrases ("Anti-racist is a codeword for anti-White", "Africa for the Africans, Asia for the Asians, White countries for everybody"). The same bullshit about "white genocide". It's all in their talking points (http://mantra.awardspace.us/). And remember, they try to act like they are one of us:
>"Know your target audience and wrap our message around what appeals to them. Young adults want to talk about education fees and housing prices, Teens want to talk about music, Old people want to talk about pensions, etc. Try to connect with the people using their language/colloquialisms e.g. "Dude" "Mate" "Bloke" "Howdy" "Yeah" "Lol" "Rofl".
They also police /q/, swarming upon every thread that mentions /pol/ or stormfront, usually filling it up with shitty infographics and derailing it into tons of shitposting about Jews, Liberals, Gays etc... No, this is not a raid, as they've been here for quite some time. Now they spread their shit all over other boards. Don't fall into their trap. The best thing to do when you see a stormfuck thread is to SAGE, REPORT AND HIDE.
REMEMBER THE TRUTH!
Global Rule #13

So, a quick question about Global Rule #13.
What is the primary purpose of not allowing avataring and signing, yet there is such thing as tripcodes? Even so, why is it allowed on certain boards? Don't really care, either way, but just wanted to know the thought process behind it. Especially making the tripcode part.
