Backend: - Image 404 default - Restructure log page - Color tags for text - Enhanced editing - Webhook to Discord for updates -- #quest-discussion -- 3 hr cooldown - Push notifications for watcher and in-thread - Anonpone style landing page that leads to individual quest indexes - Individual quest index that builds automatically from OP name and subject -- Individual threads treated as chapters with the option for QMs to name them with the subject via a "This is the quest name: This is the chapter name" format. -- Come up with a way for user generated synopsis to work mechanically without accounts. Maybe just use their first post wholesale? -- Include various ques stats on the index - Figure out how tagging should work.

Adding image-editing functionality for both Moderators and Posters would be good functionality. Could potentially give the poster's image editing feature the same restrictions to prevent abuse if that's a concern, but authors could potentially want to come back and change images they've posted to make corrections. Having to pester mods to make image changes could be a problem, but that's up to you to decide.
reportWatcher.init = function() { if(localStorage.reportCounter){ watcher.watcherAlertCounter = ocalStorage.reportCounter; } ocalStorage

One of my readers said that it would be nice if the reply interface could somehow also appear at the bottom of the screen to facilitate proper responses to quest text without having to scroll up and down away from the text. Don't know how doable that is, however.
>>179 Does he not know about the quick reply interface?

I'd love to see some casual collaborative storytelling here actually. I'm having ideas for threads that aren't typical cyoas, you've given me hope again damn you. Might want to establish a feel for what genres are and aren't the idea of this site, though that will happen organically, my guess is you're gonna not want that. Look how much I'm already spreading furry trash around, disgusting. I'd be willing to be a janny if its anonymous actually, I can be impartial and drama shielded that way.
>>1 Considering that I’m the community leader/lead moderator/etc., I’ll preface this by saying that this is just my personal take, and that official site policy may change or evolve over time. With that said, my attitude towards this question is to be fairly open-minded about what kinds of collaborative content we support or allow. (To that end, perhaps you could elaborate on what kinds of atypical ideas you have in mind?) It might be helpful to give you some idea of my own background with this stuff. My experience with quests/cyoas/etc. centers almost exclusively around tgchan/questden, so those are the types of quests with which I’m the most familiar: heavily narrative, character-focused collaborative storytelling, where the audience collectively controls one character or a group of specific characters. So that’s a specific type of content I’m personally interested in nurturing on this site, but if there’s demand for other types of collaborative content then I’m inclined to be welcoming towards it, within reason. All that being said, I suppose content that is drastically different from your garden-variety quest/cyoa might be better off in /chat/ (at least to start) until we can make a determination as to whether it belongs in /quest/ (or, if the situation warrants, in a board of its own if it proves to be wildly popular — but also don’t count on that.) >willing to be a janny For the time being I intend to keep the moderation team small, until the site userbase grows enough to justify bringing on more people to manage things. Once that time comes, I’ll probably be up for doing interviews for mod positions. >furry trash Oh, there’s going to be plenty of that regardless. My own quests are often furry with at least a touch of smuttiness (if not more), so in my eyes furry and nsfw content are quite welcome. (That being said, I intend on being equally welcoming to non-furry, sfw, etc.)
>>>3 Personally, I'd like to see a good mix of a few different ideas! Collaborative story telling is cool, but being a mechanics kinda guy that likes seeing people take a system and toy around with it, I'd like to play with things where people take a character from a blank slate and eventually toy around with the tools given to them to make their character grow in crazy ways. If they've got the intuition to help carry it along! All in all, I'd be willing to volunteer as a janny of sorts!

To fix: -Posts don't become wider when expanding images, leading to single-column text wrapping. Happens in all themes. Uncertain it's fixable with css alone.
Screenshot 2021-07-12 13:34:20.png
-Set emojis' to .postIcon { object-fit: scale-down; max-width:64px; max-height:64px; width:64px; height:64px; } To preserve aspect ratio. AND reserve the space so it doesn't break formatting. Best of both worlds without creating useless divs baby.
>>126 Done.
