Is outing the submitter off the table? How about buying a name change?
 
2013-08-23 08:23:35 AM  
There should be prizes.
 
2013-08-23 08:35:14 AM  
I want to be able to zoom on the mobile edition.  My eyes aren't what they once were.
 
2013-08-23 08:52:40 AM  
What EvilEgg said, plus darker font on the greenlit tab when viewing on PC.

Also for same reason.
 
2013-08-23 09:10:19 AM  
I'm with EvilEgg on this as well.  The mobile app needs work.  I usually skip the app and browse Fark from my mobile browser so I can actually read the articles and comments.
 
2013-08-23 09:15:01 AM  
The mobile app ain't bad at all, considering the pieces of crap some sites have.  But yeah it could use a little tweaking.

I have also noticed some heavy moderation of threads that don't break any FarQ rules.  Why even have TFD if silly threads aren't allowed?
 
2013-08-23 09:17:32 AM  
Really?

A few loud a reasonable people have been crowing this (me included) but more transparent moderation would be nice. Also, boot one of admins who sucks out the fun like a starving hooker on welfare check day.

Aside from that, raise the GIF limit.

Move the automatic fourth link to the bottom of the page automatically.

antidisestablishmentarianism: Is outing the submitter off the table? How about buying a name change?


yes, its pointless. you out-the-subby people cant get it through your heads that the people who would be outed wont care and would in fact enjoy it.
 
2013-08-23 09:20:28 AM  
aside from the GIF thing, I think everything is reasonable.

The only other suggestion would be to ban rostit.

I think buying a name change is a great idea.

And if it doesn't matter if subby is outed, then they should sell that, too.

Kickin ass gettin paid.

All of this.

Why is this on this tab?
 
2013-08-23 09:27:33 AM  
Bigger image sizes.
 
2013-08-23 09:30:03 AM  
Gif sizes, definitely. Don't ban rostit.
Better moderation.

Fewer repeat greens, for crying out loud.

Whatever the engine/process is for assigning tags should be used to flag the potential repeats.
 
2013-08-23 09:32:30 AM  
Boobies links back on the greenlit page!!!
 
2013-08-23 09:35:45 AM  
Mobile fark - would be nice to be able to edit quotes.  The number of additional comments next to a thread would be fantastic too.
 
2013-08-23 09:38:51 AM

The ability to destroy people with my mind.

In a similar vein, anyone that says "I saw this on reddit already" should have something happen to their post.

Actually, that's a good idea.  Just change the filter so that any time someone posts the word "reddit," it changes it to "lemon party."

But for serious.

- The smartest and funniest voted comments should have a little tag next to them.
- Funniest and Smartest commenters for the month get free TF.
- A running tally in your profile that shows how many smart/funny votes you've received and links to threads you've won.
- TFer's get a widget on the side that highlights any responses they've received, new comments in threads they're watching and new threads that may interest them based on the tagging system or keywords they choose.
- Keyword filtering for headlines.  If you don't want to see num-num you don't have to see num-num.

As a liter it would be nice to at least be able to see the comments on my redlit submissions so that can see maybe why it was redlit.

Some of these are actually good ideas.

I'm thinking you might be able to, once it goes red.  Just check in your profile and click that link.  But for the most part, they go red and you never know why.  They don't click "Not funny enough"  "Not this again"  "Old Joke is Old" "No one gets that joke" buttons.  But I know for my submissions, they wan to.

That's a perfect idea.  It's already being done for NSFW headlines.  That way everyone gets the threads they want.

It would work better than ignoring headlines from specific users because (trust me on this) when something is annoying (num-num) there are usually like 18 people doing it.

Plus if you can ignore from specific users you could go in and toggle ignore off and on to figure out who submitted a thread. Which would be frowned upon.

Most redlit threads have zero comments and are bulk redded by the admin once they pic the ones they'd like to make green.

That, and then a Slashdot-style "read at +n and up" filter. It's like a thread-specific groupthink ignore list.

Not user avatars.  But you know how you can favorite someone with text and color?  I'd like to also be able to favorite someone with a picture that I choose.   It's my choice if I want to favorite you with a picture from your profile...or a dog...or some random fun picture that illustrates a Farker in my mind.

Therion: Editable quotes on mobile. Souls of wit are being overrun by walls of text.


Better quoting... Half the time, trying to quote just a portion of a post fails.

Oh, and if you quote something over some arbitrary limit, currently it truncates and ends with "..." However, the bottom of the quote is almost always what you're responding to. It should truncate  at the top of the quote. For example:

I_C_Weener: EmperorSled: ... my redlit submissions so that can see maybe why it was redlit.

I'm thinking you might be able to, once it goes red.  Just check in your profile and click that link.  But for the most part, they go red and you never know why.  They don't click "Not funny enough"  "Not this again"  "Old Joke is Old" "No one gets that joke" buttons.  But I know for my submissions, they wan to.

I just tried on the couple of mine that have comments on red lights and I get the normal not a total farker message.

I understand that. I do have some with comments though and I'm always curious what they are, that's all.
