Can janitors and mods easily see our IP addresses?
As in, to janitors we are not anonymous, they can remember our IP and put a face to us, they can see past all our bullshit, our lies, our bad sides and ugly sides?
Can this janitor use this information to easily doxx us?
I just want to know if you only use the information of your users for legal purposes?
Filter tripcodes for everybody
7 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: url.png]
Here's a suggestion to dealing with shitposting tripfag ban evaders. We all know that hell banning is impossible on this site, but filtering is not. So why not, if they have a tripcode, just filter them for everybody on the site? We all know banning them isn't going to work, so this is an alternate solution. Sure, when they find out, they'll just get another tripcode, but this will delay them greatly, and not to mention that it will aggravate them when they try to post something and find out nobody responds. Filtering by yourself doesn't work, since the effect on the thread is noticeable even when you do have it on.
I'd like some moderator input on this and if this can be done. You mods must know what problems some certain users are causing currently.
The worst of /b/

Somehow I can't stop going to /b/. I know we don't expect /b/ to be anything except shit, but I'm going to gripe anyway.
You know what the worst two things on /b/ are?
- Fap roll threads. What the fuck? There is always multiple threads of this up at all times. Why? Why do people need someone to decide their masturbation material for them? Just how much of a drooling retard do you have to be to participate in this shit?
- XX names my pipe/bong. When did this become a thing? Who the fuck names their drug paraphernalia anyway? Do they tell their friends what their piece's name is? "THIS IS MY PIPE, ITS NAME IS BARRY THE BUMRAPER, HURRRR!" I absolutely cannot fathom why you would do this.
I know I'm an idiot for getting worked up about this, but the banality of it all is just so maddening. I wish moot would come and string up a few people who post these threads.
Sorry for posting this pointless twaddle, I just had to vent.
Question and proposition about name/trip users on /v/
10 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: 1.png]
Good day /q/.
If it wont be a problem, I would like to ask about two things.
First is that on /v/, from last ~4 years, I was posting with filled name and email field. I was not using tripcode in any form, yet I was leaving one of my actual emails, as it allowed, in some cases, to continue to answer question, or provide links to materials after thread died. I must admit that I was always trying to keep the conversation on video games, being nice and positive towards other users. Sometimes it resulted in rather negative approach from some users, where in some cases they started using the same name and email in thread. However, such activities rarely lasted for longer than thread or two, as I assume, they never really wanted to act really mean.
Around week ago, however, one of such persons adopted tripcode with my using name and email and announced that Im "impostor". It wouldnt be a problem, if not that he still continue to do this after such a long time, posting under my email. I know that name without tripcode is "unprotected", just like any other text typed here, but email - actual and active - doesnt belong to him and when I started to receive invitation to sites like fab.com, it becomes annoying and actually little scary.
I dont actually know, what should I do in such case, so I decided to ask here, as the board most suitable to deal with such problems, related to site nature.
Another thing I would like to ask about, is the possibility of adding "anonymizer" of some kind to site functions, since we already have filter and similar features implanted. Since on /v/ such negative approach towards name/trip users occurs even when said users are actually having related discussion, I think it would give option to not filter, but hide their names/codes, thus satisfying both sides. I dont know, if such idea came before and if it was rejected, so if what I suggest is wrong, please, tell me.
Thank you very much for time, replies and help towards this matter.
Please take Kamen rider out of /m/

I know this will be ignored because of the annoying /pol/ arguments, but can we make a separate rider board other than /m/? Maybe /kmr/
I was going to /m/ for years on end, back when sandwich man and bel air stuff started up, and about 2 or 3 years ago /m/ has been lambasted with Kamen Rider and sequel threads non-fucking stop for 24 hours.
You go there and 3 of the topics on the front page are always Rider related, even though the show is about doing martial art tricks in rubber suits and offers little more entrainment than a Dr. Who episode of '75.
They're were taking over the board, I left. I wanted back since /v/ is nothing but /b/ with marketers anymore, but when I did I find it's infested top to bottom with kamen rider shit.
Take them the fuck off /m/. I guy in a robot suit that looks like a bug man is not space ship or giant fighting robot related. FORCE THEM ON TO ANOTHER BOARD!
Native extension and image hover - why does the expanded image appear on the far right?
3 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: image hover.png]
When browsing with the native 4chan extension and using the image hover feature, the expanded images appear at the extreme right edge of the screen. With a standard 1920x1080 monitor, this means that there's about 12 inches of separation between the focus of the thread (text and thumbnails), and many expanded images. This means that your eyes have to move, drawing your attention away from the text momentarily, and, after realizing that the image sucked anyway (or for whatever reason you stop looking at it), you must refocus on the text, trying to figure out where you stopped reading. Just like when you lift your eyes from reading a book and then try to pick up where you left off (assuming you didn't place your thumb on the last line read), this can be a mentally tiring task.
Can we get images to hover over the cursor instead?

Can we please have a sticky on /g/?
If we did, it would stem the flow of the same question every month like these:
Asking the same questions. Maybe we could throw in some recommended builds for budget, A programming FAQ, a Linux FAQ, a privacy FAQ, a ricing FAQ, suggested programs FAQ. I get that all this would require way too much work and its much better to go by a per-user basis but maybe we can at least answer the simplest questions to stimulate more conversation.
