Are we truly anonymous?

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.
Change /gd/ to /dm/

I like /gd/, I think so far it's going great, but I feel like restricting it (in name at least) to Graphic Design is holding it back. Already I feel like at least maybe ~10% of the threads are about web development (if not more) and designers are generally multi-faceted dudes who know about more than simple graphic design. A lot of designers will know front/back-end web, video, animation, 3D etc. on top of standard print design and there's a wealth of knowledge out there waiting to be shared if you can give it the forum.
I know we already have /3/ and I think the members of that community are happy to be left to their own devices but I propose turning /gd/ into /dm/ - Digital Media, a place where we can discuss all things related to digital design.
Is there any chance of this happening? What was the rationale behind creating /gd/ in the first place? Was there a reason it was limited to Graphic Design?
Threads visible on multiple boards

I just thought of something that would be interesting. What if when you posted a thread it gave you an option to make the thread you're posting visible on up to 3 different boards so if the content of your thread is odd and could go on 2-3 different boards, you have that option? Like, for say, if I wanted to post a thread about Tony Hawk Underground 2 on /v/, I could also make that thread visible on /asp/. Or if I wanted to make a thread about movies based off books, I could make the thread visible on /lit/ and /tv/?
/fit/ is pretty much bodybuilding.com forums 2.0

I know /fit/ has never been completely fitness-centric, but if you went there now, you wouldn't even think it's the fitness board. Basically, after morons from bodybuilding.com started coming over, the place just gets worse and worse by the fucking day. I just checked the front page, and there was not a single thread about physical fitness. Here's how I describe it-
10% "that feel"
25% le epic may mays
30% bodybuildig/body rate
20% height threads/nutrition/DNP/roids/etc
Whenever I want to actually discuss fitness and weightlifting, my posts are either ignored or bombarded with "LOL SS", "U mad?", or other retarded shit. You get more discussion about bodybuilders wiping their ass than you do about actual fitness or weightlifting. I posted a pic of Suleymanoglu a while back (he's a Turkish weightlifter who's really short), and a bunch of assclowns were saying "LOL MANLET" and talking about how bodybuilders get all the girls.
Will the mods either do something (like saying the bodybuilding threads are ok, but it's not a bodybuilding board) or rename it to bodybuilding misc 2.0?
