Settings resetting problem
0 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: 1340408288417.jpg]
For some reason my custom setting keep reverting back to the default settings randomly. Sometimes it happens within 2 minutes of manually changing my settings, other times I can open and close my browser a few times before they are reverted back to the default. It's like Chinese water-torture, but with 4chan.
I'm not sure if its my browser or my computer, but whatever the issue is, I would like it resolved.
Pic related, its how I feel about the problem
Feature suggestion for /int/
3 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: concealflag.png]
I have a suggestion about a new feature to add on /int/, and in my opinion it would greatly increase this board's global quality. Note that this applies to /sp/ and generally any board that is bound to have flags enabled in the future.
The idea is very simple: flags should be concealed by default, but you can reveal it by typing something in the email field (or whatever method you think should be more appropriate). It would greatly improve /int/ overall for the following reason;
Most discussions on /int/ are heavily biased because people can't help but take the poster's nationality into account when arguing. This leads to literal ad hominem (i.e. "I'll disregard your comment because you come from X"), baseless flaming ("Fuck off, X faggot"), etc. I have observed the most blatant example of this kind of behavior recently: a Greek poster started a thread about "which country is the worst shithole" and almost every reply was "Greece". Now you may think the thread was fairly low-quality (and I agree with you) but I happened to be on my phone and for some reason flags aren't display when I post from it, so I decided to start the same thread, using the fact that my nationality is hidden when I post from my phone. Needless to say, the answers were extremely varied.
This shows that people are bound to be biased when they see other people's nationalities and this is extremely harmful for a quality discussion (that is, without the same shit-flinging that goes on since the board's creation).
Of course I can't deny the usefulness of flags on an international board; hence the option to display them on demand, when it becomes relevant or useful to the discussion. For instance, if someone asks for advice in Spanish, it only makes sense that the guys trying to correct the OP would reveal their flags if they are Spanish or Latinos. It also removes the problem of impersonation, since people can always reveal their flags when honesty is needed to carry on a conversation further.
Too much religion shitposting on /pol/

Now now, don't roll your eyes, it's not like I'm creating yet another thread on how a post on /pol/ hurt my precious fragile feelings and how it should be shut down because of it
Instead, I'm here to complain about a actuall problem with /pol/: All the shitposting about religion.
No, I'm not talking about /pol/'s weird obsecion with Jews and Muslims. I'm not even saying that threads that have religious undertones in them SHOULD be deleted. What I am saying is that threads that are basically
>ATHEISM THREAD WE STONGK EVERYONE ELSE SHIT COME AT ME
>CHRISTIAN THREAD DO YOU BELEIVE IN JESUS IF NOT YOU NIGGAS GOIN TO HELL PROVE ME WRONG
and so on and so forth that always get 200 replies ommited, click to view, are not actually /pol/ related.
I mean, they arn't even shitposting things like
in a thread about, say, libya or syria or whatever, they are just treating /pol/ like it's /jews/ or /religion/ or something
WHAT I PROPOSE TO MAKE /pol/ SLIGHTLY BETTER:
Decree threads soley about Religion (i.e no actual politics is in the thread) go to /s4s/, /b/ and /x/
Threads that are actually about politics that accoured because of a religious thing can stay on /pol/
Threads going HAPPENING and posters putting ITS THE KIKES/NIGGERS can stay in /pol/ provided they arn't stupid enough to spam the shit everywhere, in which case it should be cleaned up at a janitors discretion (i.e when they feel like it)
Red pill threads can stay if they actually have talking points and sources to discuss (i.e they don't go /x/)
Note: this thread is for complaining about the influx of religion spam threads and shitposting. I'm not going to go over any other problem /pol/ may have. I support /pol/'s right to have different opinions than mine over religion, but I don't support the 50+ threads shitposting about belief systems when there isn't actually any need for them.
