This is not the first time I've had this problem with link bans either.
For example, several months back on /b/ someone asked for sauce on an Alia Janine pic. I found an xnxx link to the video for the pic because I knew exactly how to find it. I got banned without warning. The next day I post an xvideos link and it works just fine (not to mention, they're virtually the same site because they've merged).
The main problem I have with this is that it's confusing, and I can't just go look at a list of what misc. shit you've decided to take issue with. If I could just ctrl+f through a list to find out which links you don't want posted then that would be okay, but you don't give me that. You just ban me for 24 hours without warning and I get to browse through all my favorite boards looking at all these threads I want to contribute to because after years of being fine, you've suddenly gone and decided to add earthcam to the list of banned URL's.
It's your site, Moot. Ban whatever you want, but can I just get a list on what it's going to be?

The current way threads are displayed is backwards and inefficient, it should be replaced with a format like catalog. People will be able to more easily ignore spam, have a way to sort threads, be able to see all threads easily, and help threads not get buried on faster boards.
There really is no advantages to the current system over catalog other than because it's been that way. Moot already stole most of the features in 4chan X and added them into standard 4chan, even though he said he wouldn't so it's obvious this will happen eventually. It's better to have it happen sooner rather than later though.
Why was I banned for something I did not do?

Hello /q/, I have been permabanned from /v/ for allegedly making a general. I claim that I did not, there was a Borderlands 2 thread on /v/ that was getting shat up but there were still others, including myself, discussing the game.
After the thread was 404'd, I made a BL2 thread to continue the discussion, the thread was shat up within a half hour and I was perma'd for "making a general". I claim that I did NOT make a general, I've seen threads on /v/ fairly often that get shat up and continued. Like the Neptunia threads, there was also a DBZ thread that was allowed to continue.
So I ask you: Why did I get perma'd for a first time offense like this? Yes I've appealed for my ban, and as you can see it was denied, I have tried contacting mods on the IRC and I haven't gotten any response from them over the course of 6 to 8 hour waiting periods.

Does anyone else think more boards should have recommendation stickies?
I think it would help, as I ocassionally see threads on certain boards where a new user asks for some entry level stuff, and promptly gets told off, this would work better for both parties, and would allow more to the point discussion.
I understand some boards may not have such an easy time with recommendations.(/v/ comes to mind) But even /v/ has a few games they can agree on as being worthwhile, and I'm sure it would speed up a lot of discussion as well.
more recommendation stickies please
Is /co/ the next /tg/?

Remember when moot said that his new initiatives to recruit janitors and mods wouldn't result overmoderation?
I can't even post on /co/ anymore. Constant two or three day bans for absolutely no apparent reason. The new policy that ban reasons have to be as vague and unhelpful as humanly possible is working well too, a stroke of genius there. There is absolutely no way these are legitimate bans from actually breaking rules, clearly some loser has a boner for hitting the ban button.
Where the fuck are you finding these assholes to mod your site, moot? Are you literally recruiting the most banhappy sycophants you can find straight from SomethingAwful and just not supervising them to make sure they're actually doing their jobs and not banning random posts they don't like? Are you even *capable* of supervising them? Is the functionality even built into the site to see which specific post they ban people for, or do you just see the same insulting bullshit ban reasons we see? I can't be the only one having problems with this. This is the worst I have ever seen this site.
PLEASE PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR FUCKING MODS, MOOT
