Inacio's post disappeared but it linked me to a banned post of a photo of 3 pigs and I'm assuming that's the post being referred to https://files.facepunch.com/forum/upload/58209/dedb0152-41cd-4c44-91df-9f1b22133bb8/Pig.PNG
uh so both of Inacio's posts are gone but honestly I don't get why that post deserves a ban its just a cheeky optical illusion that gave me a chuckle the first time I saw it, the most egregious thing about it is that it's been posted before
LMAO PICS v194 this is the fixed link, page 29
guess the intent matters but yeah, I got to admit it got me good. Still can't unsee the disgusting thing I was imagining.
sorry, i deleted it because sirius has already banned the guy (but he didn't see that i was asking for opinions here), and so i didn't want to put him on a spot. but yeah, since you reposted it i think that posts like that are not appropriate, and i'd ban it. the problem is that i can understand that some people will find that funny, which makes this really difficult. can we compromise and reach a minimum number of reports per post to make a post bannable? or something else? any suggestions?
Since humor is mostly subjective, even the most unfunniest thing can illicit a chuckle ironically or unironically to a select people. So weird/cursed/cute content usually is fine for me, since most of the time they overlap with some form of humor. With that in mind I think a lot of things are fair game to be posted in LMAO. I think if there's a general consensus that an image is just straight up unwanted or off-topic, like when users usually dumb bomb them instead of just a disagree (since a disagree is just usually playing along with the 'joke' of how bad something is) and maybe around 10 reports work. I guess anything that's already kind of banned in the forums in general should count, such as just straight up gore/cruelty and NSFW (just purely sexual with no punchline)/NSFL content are the strictest guideline I can think of. Overall it just seems to be in the nature of the thread. While it's definitely the most active thread FP has, I think it deserves to have lax rules just due to the nature of its comedic topic.
I don't find that particular image funny but instead of getting assblasted over it I'd just scroll past it and that's it Plus I find all the cursed food/images hilarious, at least they're original and not a variant of some meme being posted for the 20th time in a day
The pig thing had me shocked but laughing after figuring out what it is. Yet someone was banned for it. People post 9/11 jokes and I don't see them getting banned, so what the fuck, New Mods. Like how the fuck is this okay https://files.facepunch.com/forum/upload/1356/749b477a-fbfd-4739-a409-7397f62ee90e/image.png Or maybe Exhibit B https://files.facepunch.com/forum/upload/1356/c0160f81-17a4-4b51-b088-7528f47602f7/image.png This chain-shitpost-train. So where is the fairness ?
Can we at least somehow get mods the ability to delete posts so I don't have to see nasty ass shit like that

This is a scary thought as back on vB it was common as hell to see 5+ on a single post when it was something really bannable. The usual however was like 2 reports per post though, people were just fucking lazy and instead whined in the threads about it which just made it worse.
Oh jeez guess I overestimated how many people usually report especially nowadays But yeah that sounds good. I guess maybe 3+ reports and the post itself being dumbed to oblivion (or just generally with serious undesired reactions) and of course the mod's own discretion on top is a good way to go for anything that may be ban worthy in the thread.
The other issue that used to happen back when I was on the mod team is that we used to kinda fight over the reports (well a few of us), they'd come in and everyone would be a bit too eager on them so they'd get slammed before anymore reports came in. Then there were other times where there were things in the queue that just stayed there, forever. Either because it was hilarious (seriously some of the stuff that got reported was just, why are you reporting this lmao) or just no one wanted to touch it as it was essentially the effect of political suicide, whoever touched it was in for a bad backlash day and this happened a few times, which was pretty unfair to the mod who handled it. Can't say if this is a still a thing that happens but it wasn't exactly good, it had a tendency to lead to poor judgement at times (guilty as charged, I made some REALLY bad decisions due to rushing a report) and in the last case, let things stay for far too long when they shouldn't. Just my two cents from what I remember experiencing, a lot of judgement goes into moderating and sometimes its not as smooth riding as it should be.
Controversial reports should result in a Half-Life Deathmatch tourney, with the winner picking which mod who has to take responsibility. The mod then must directly challenge the reported user to a 1 on 1 showdown to determine if they should be banned or not. On a more serious note, I only really report blatant ones like spam or straight up flaming, but whenever a mod does come in, it almost feels like a delayed ban button during those times which feels weird. Also I don't know if it's still the case for Newpunch, but I remember it being a minimum of 2 reports before a report actually does pop up on the mod's feeds, which was my own reminder that maybe I should give the report button a go whenever there's something blatantly bannable.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but for a short while didn't there use to be a small stigma that you'd be banned or at least publicly "called out" for reporting somebody? I could swear I saw Hezzy do it a few times to people that reported Tudd posts.
only in special cases (or if your reports are REALLY REALLY bad)
I 100% agree the guy is being a douche but its not a call out. A call out would be 'get your ass in here asic so i can yell at you'. Dude just cracked a joke involving ASIC. Again its not on but its not really a call out, and like I said last page if its becoming too much a problem I'm happy to step in and help
so i can chat mad shit about you in threads you arent in and i wont get banned? i feel like if anyone other than asic had been mentioned in that post it would be a ban, but because asic disagrees with people (not saying he's right about said things) its perfectly ok to make callout posts about it
I'm not really sure if you're 100% serious. Call out he would be banned, flaming would be banned, being a loser and trying to be funny by putting the name of someone at the end of your post is just dumb. Third time I'll say, if this shit keeps happening and its a problem, I'm happy to deal with it. But in this particular case we've already all looked at it; we've also all assessed this guy is just being stupid by trying to be funny by naming ASIC and it did not work. The guy ended up looking stupid enough. Thats more than me banning him for a day or two will do at this given point. Going back and banning him for a day for 'call out' or 'flaming' isnt going to do anything except have people ask more questions as to why he was banned when it wasnt explicitly a call out or flaming
You probably meant the phrase, "people can say whatever they wish about him", figuratively. Although, in my experience it may have been more literal. They've actually have said much worse about me, back when I was there. And it was either ignored, or allowed. Speaking of my ban, I have to ask some questions about it later. That stuff they said to me is one of the strange things about it.
anyone notice anything FUNNY about this top bar https://files.facepunch.com/forum/upload/239831/8476d33f-ab19-410a-965f-81f8e8281bf6/Screen Shot 2019-02-07 at 11.16.36 PM.png one square corner one round
What browser are you using? It doesn't look like that for me on Firefox, Chrome, or Microsoft Edge.

Why Awfully Dark suddenly stopped working?
Works fine on my end, what does your custom CSS entry look like?
works fine on my machine my dude https://files.facepunch.com/forum/upload/326417/c368c07c-325d-4a00-9434-83f97551c016/image.png we have a thread for it too, btw, it's a better place to ask than here: Facepunch Awfully Dark II for the Facepunch Forums or even here: Facepunch Ricing Central
I think I banned maybe one or two people max, this is after we told people we would be cracking down on flippant reports and after I had PMed people warning them not to make flippant reports and explaining why the reports weren't great I've changed my position on this now we're on this new forum because the report queue has a weighting feature where users can be downvoted for shit reports, so their reports come last. I'm not sure if it works though.
