All things considered, a pretty large update! I've got more to talk about, but check back past the break for that.
As I've stressed before, time and again, this site exists for the community, so if you've got some ideas, post them below, and let us hear about it!
On the business side of things, I'm working on drafting a "longer-term" plan, hopefully ready to present something this week, or early next week, which lays down a specific "here's what we are going to do" plan, and then let you guys think it over, poke it with a stick, then call me an idiot, and have me do it again; as far as running a site, its been a pretty successful model thus far :-)
Expect one or two more "meta" posts in the next few days, and until then, let me know your thoughts below
For Fuck Sake, now this site will have regular and Unicode smilies in ever other fucking post.
Give it a god damned rest already.
Not the devs, the lol-tards.
And I thought implementing Unicode was a good idea, 'til I read this page. At least they're not replaced with those gawd-awful fucking emoji images. Or worse, animated fucking emoji. Although with image blocking, one can safely and easily remove those.
Yes, I'm in a bad mood. Yes, it's fucking late and I can barely keep my eyes open. Yes, I'm pissed off.
If we start seeing large amounts of UTF-8 spamming across the site, we'll take preventive measures (likely limiting the use of non-ASCII to logged in users with some karma). Until then though, as long as it stays contained to this post, I'm not hugely concerned.
If we hand out more mod points, we can mod down abusers into oblivion. Drop the lower end down to -2 so we have a special place for UTF8 art spammers :).
