Make the youtube link parser better - support the mobile and shortened link styles.

autoreplace all Trump tweet embeds with "I am the worst possible type of douchebag and I cordially invite you to punch me until I die"

Oh for a more innocent time when people who rolled their damn eyes were worst possible type of douchebag.

This isn't a feature request, but it seems insane to me that there is no rolling thread about dating.

there is on 77, on ILE there's the OK Cupid thread that gets bumped occasionally and you could probably use for that purpose

president of deluded fruitcakes anonymous (silby), Thursday, 10 October 2019 17:48 (four months ago) link

that probably wouldn't be considered public info

Mario Meatwagon (Moodles), Thursday, 10 October 2019 17:53 (four months ago) link

do we have any, or a good/appropriate/agreed-upon, system for dealing with old-ass threads/posts where you said kinda dumb and offensive shit (or shit that could be taken out of context even) and are now, ten years later, vaguely anxious that someone could connect the dots and eventually link it back to you? like is it appropriate to ask mods to replace individual posts with "This post has been deleted by request of its poster" or sth? asking for a friend

xp - are you friends with the kickstarter bro who started the thread about how gross it was that fat people have sex?

sarahell, Thursday, 10 October 2019 18:31 (four months ago) link

what? no ew

weird ilx but sb (Doctor Casino), Thursday, 10 October 2019 18:39 (four months ago) link

i can't out the friend in question but to my knowledge he has only ever posted under a handle that rhymes with "Lock door; bus Eno"

weird ilx but sb (Doctor Casino), Thursday, 10 October 2019 18:41 (four months ago) link

NU ilx is built on the ashes, misfortunes and bad posting of old ilx. To remove the past is to remove the present imo.

Le Bateau Ivre, Thursday, 10 October 2019 19:00 (four months ago) link

i dig that, i just like, occasionally wake up at night in a cold sweat for fear that my academic career might someday be derailed because of some post in 2006 where I was trying out being a combative internet zingbro or w/e

weird ilx but sb (Doctor Casino), Thursday, 10 October 2019 19:01 (four months ago) link

We've all been there iirc

(idk you could maybe ask a mod nicely and it will probably be removed and no-one will ever find it missing anyway?)

Le Bateau Ivre, Thursday, 10 October 2019 19:13 (four months ago) link

do you list "Doctor Casino" on your cv?

sarahell, Thursday, 10 October 2019 19:16 (four months ago) link

Doctor Casino isn't your real name?! FP'd.

Le Bateau Ivre, Thursday, 10 October 2019 19:17 (four months ago) link

are you even a doctor?

sarahell, Thursday, 10 October 2019 19:17 (four months ago) link

I'm muckraking through the Doctor's old posts now and... There's not a lot of doctorly advice there, I have to say

Le Bateau Ivre, Thursday, 10 October 2019 19:19 (four months ago) link

What about whether or not you should hit or stay on 13?

pplains, Thursday, 10 October 2019 19:23 (four months ago) link

i thought this was the friends w/babies thread for a second and got confused by pplains' post

sarahell, Thursday, 10 October 2019 19:25 (four months ago) link

Did you think it was a corporal punishment post or ... worse?

pplains, Thursday, 10 October 2019 19:36 (four months ago) link

haha i do not list this on my CV but it's not that hard to make the connection, i was using this handle for a lot of things back in the mid-00s. sigh.

some drunk evening i'll pin down the 3 or 4 sad awful posts i have in mind and plead my case to a mod, thanks y'all!

weird ilx but sb (Doctor Casino), Friday, 11 October 2019 14:52 (four months ago) link

nah Doc whatever posts you fear being found will be needles in the haystack of your REM posts over years

and that is how it should be, forever and ever amen

at least nobody is associating your government name with a r4ce w4r

every time the 77 invite request thread gets bumped I wish there was a way to remove all my posts from the depression/anxiety thread. I’m ridiculous, obv.

one month passes...

an auto-sic function that strips

and similar from URLs

Swilling Ambergris, Esq. (silby), Tuesday, 10 December 2019 20:58 (two months ago) link

It could be coded into the website, but as a user (who c&p's urls on here) you can do your part:


Le Bateau Ivre, Tuesday, 10 December 2019 21:00 (two months ago) link

well I always delete that shit manually, I just want to make it easier for others

Swilling Ambergris, Esq. (silby), Tuesday, 10 December 2019 21:34 (two months ago) link

Can someone specify all the cruft that should be removed? Is there a handy list somewhere?

stet, Tuesday, 10 December 2019 21:54 (two months ago) link

i am against this, i don't want sic to lose the sisyphean meaning of his existence, i must imagine him happy

j., Wednesday, 11 December 2019 00:34 (two months ago) link

how about a grimly content free conservative troll who couches all his posts in fluffy ambiguity and classic lit references to try and make himself sound cleverer than he is. and repeat for a decade.

calzino, Friday, 20 December 2019 00:36 (two months ago) link

i know this is going to seem awful at first but hear me out:

optional notifications for zing. possible options:

- hourly top 5 threads by number of new posts ("or some permutation of that" applies to all of these basically)
- daily top 5 new threads created within the last 24 hours
- when a bookmark that hasn't been posted on in at least a hour gets a new post (conditional there to prevent people's phones from buzzing their pants off when a thread gets a ton of posts all day)

others probably better ideas than that, but those were the first few that came to mind.

some of these might be useful stats/resources on too

But guess what? Nobody gives a toot!😂 (Karl Malone), Saturday, 28 December 2019 22:09 (one month ago) link

the one notification feature i’ve always wanted is the ability to @ somebody. sometimes a thread really needs someone.

Li'l Brexit (Tracer Hand), Saturday, 28 December 2019 22:20 (one month ago) link

I like the idea but it seems like it could be abused unless integrated with block system?

$300 isn't cool. You know what's a cool? $800 dollars.

But guess what? Nobody gives a toot!😂 (Karl Malone), Saturday, 28 December 2019 22:40 (one month ago) link

is there a way to message a user through the zing app? I couldn't find a way the other day, and it would/could be useful for FAP organizing?

sarahell, Saturday, 28 December 2019 23:24 (one month ago) link

@ing someone could serve that function (somehow). like maybe an @ creates a new link on a special bookmark page, linking through to the post where you were @ed.

in bookmarks tab, the ability to order/prioritize

A better YouTube link parser is needed (see my multiple posts on the I Think You Should Leave thread for examples), especially for mobile.

DJI, Tuesday, 4 February 2020 21:04 (two weeks ago) link

that's a weird-ass format of link you found there, but will add it to the list

stet, Thursday, 6 February 2020 01:48 (two weeks ago) link

Yeah they seem to sprinkle the "" string in all over the URL depending on how you share it.
