And yes, that's stretching it a bit, but thanks for the vote of confidence Hyde :)

kusma: why? I didn't say it - that strange Andromedar did. :)

gloom: I would print "seldom wrong" on a t-shirt and wear it the next time I had beers with hyde if I were you. And then pick arguments all the time.

kusma: so - apart from the clean t-shirt, what would be different from how it is now? :)

Just to give closure to my own ranting: Thanks for the apology, analogue -- like lug00ber said, coming back after 40 pages of vitriol and openly apologizing takes balls, so kudos for that.

Reading your message gave me a lot of relief, especially due to two things: a) you said you're ok with a db dump, you just don't want it on your own conscience, and b) your open reactions to pull requests on github. To me, both indicate you're open towards change, sharing responsibility and that you're neither trying to hog the pouet data nor decide on pouet's future alone.

As D.Fox stated, people (including me) are probably going to be a little careful around you for a while, but in my (possibly overly naïve) book the two things I mentioned above already go a long way.

in other news, why does www.pouet.net redirect to pouet.net now? you could at least use canonical tags instead...
in conclusion, i think the most valuable lesson we can all learn from this thread is that we need to be able to block images on a per-user basis to keep the bronies' disruption to a minimum. i'm guessing the easiest way at the moment is to block all of them and write a user script to show images posted by non-"blacklisted" users.

reed: This sounds like a better approach considering the noise/signal ratio of Pouet.

May I suggest the single most useful feature I ever coded for a forum?

Off topic. You could set your post to off topic, or the thread starter, or an admin. The thread starter and admin could change it after it was posted, the user could not (like "submit as off topic).

In view mode, it was only showed once for all users, so the post was visible, but with red background as to warn users for something off topic, when you had seen it once, it was collapsed in just one row, and if you clicked it it would be expanded, and click agan collapsed.

This actually worked. Very good. Nothing never needed to be deleted, but nothing was ever in the way of the real content.

Make it so?

Just create a GitHub account if you don't have one already, and post what you want and your image here. It's quite likely the developers won't check this thread for feature requests and it will get lost otherwise.
Offtopic is called "residue" here.
