Please direct matters of board moderation policy, board aesthetics such as banners/flags, and similar inquiries to this thread. Otherwise I might not see them. This can also be used as a catch-all thread for off-topic posts.
Board Culture & OC Raffle
I don't have anything to use the announcement area for, so I'm going to use it for a monthly prize. OC is the lifeblood of imageboards, so I would like to encourage it in a constructive way. Anon* may submit a sentence or quote to be entered into a raffle and turned into an announcement limit of about 100 characters or one sentence, whichever is larger
. Raffle entries are not free:
In order to be entered into the raffle, anon must either submit a banner or a piece of OC with a moderate amount of effort put in (no stick figures, video-ripped gifs/webms, or generic memes that take 2 minutes to make if you choose OC instead of banners).
*Limit of one submission per anon per month. First raffle will be held October 1st.
We are currently looking for banners!
If there is a girl or image you would like to see in a banner, /l/ is looking for banners. I'll be making a couple at a time, but they will mostly be generic.
>How do I make gifs?
Either by adjusting frame-by-frame in an image editor, or by cheating at about 70% quality: https://ezgif.com/
The only real restriction is 500kb, but please maintain a roughly 3:1 aspect ratio (300x100 - 600x200) to keep them consistent. I've included a minimum and maximum sized Nene Seal in the banners for now for comparison.
We are currently discussing flags!
I'm think I want to experiment with custom flags. I'm thinking of doing them as a 28x28 and allowing any liver (really their face or a symbolic representation) or corporate symbol (Hololive, Nijisanji, Phase-Connect, VOMs, etc.) as a flag. If anons are opposed to custom flags, the next month or so is the time to say so.
We do not need moderators at this time!
The board is small enough that I'm not worried about it. If you are interested in moderating, obviously say something to that effect because it lets me know you are interested and I can add you to an email list or something to notify you if I ever am recruiting, but it is best not to introduce more points of failure into a system if it's not necessary.
HOW BANS WORK:
Bans will average 16 hours for those without a criminal record. This is enough time to force anon to sleep on his actions and cool his head without impacting his posting ability the following day. An additional 4 hours will be added for each additional offense in the last 90 days to account for VPNs. Ban lengths are cumulative. After 90 days your criminal record is expunged. All "permabans" issued on /l/ shall last 90 days.
>Anon banned for some reason
>Anon is a good boy for 88 days
>Anon is banned for something else
>Anon gets a 20 hour ban. He must go a full 90 days without a ban or he will get a 24 hour ban next time.
Anon may dispute his ban to have it expunged from his record without fear of retaliation in this thread so long as he follows the rules while arguing his case. I make mistakes too, so don't assume it was in bad faith if I issued one.
Warnings do not count against anon.
