So, just a couple more ideas for FP, now that I have time. Just because I want FP to be more user friendly and attract more users. Swearing, this is a big one. We see it in our pictures all the time, we type similar looking words in our comments already, having actual swearing in our comments would be no different.
Our uploading abilities are horrible, so many of our pictures get rejected. Maybe if they were an automatic upload kind of situation things would be better. We'd have more content to look at, content that's chosen by the users. Sure, this would make the "new upload" section more crowded and lead to more reposts, but it would also lead to more new pictures. To avoid it becoming an unusable clusterfvck (see? That looks ridiculous, at least let us use whatever words we want), the main section of this app could be the "top today" section. We already have a "top today" section, so that wouldn't be too much of a change. It would let the users decide what pictures (part 1)
@ archiethesailor, It would let the users decide what pictures get seen by the majority of the community and what pictures aren't. Take for example the "cash me ousside" meme. I personally like it, but most users on here don't. Everyone ends up seeing it and other unpopular memes with the way we're set up. Someone might mention trolls uploading inappropriate pictures, so that brings me to my last idea.
Mods. Stuckpixel could select a few of the more well known users (of course, I'm not one, so this isn't a power grab), and have them moderate the pictures on this app. Of course, they won't be able to be everywhere, so give other users the ability to flag inappropriate pictures to be seen and judged by the mods. If users flag improperly, they can have their flagging abilities revoked. If users upload too much inappropriate content, they can have their uploading abilities revoked, not just based off of their profile, but based off of their IP. And if moderators prove to be corrupt (p2
@ archiethesailor, And if moderators prove to be corrupt, they can be replaced by Stuckpixel with other users.
I just want to say this again, I'm only talking about this because I want to see FP grow and become more popular instead of risking it dying quietly.
@ archiethesailor, I hate to say this, but you have way too much confidence on stuckpixel. I'm no programmer, and I can't do the computers very well, but what you're describing seems pretty complicated for someone who can't even keep from reposting despite the massive outcry not to.
@ archiethesailor, Other than that, stellar ideas, snd I'd love to sign you petition or something.
@ archiethesailor, I don't upload any pictures so I can't comment on that. I also think the swearing ban is a little silly, but if there is really someone out there who says " Hey this place is funny and I like the community but I can't swear so I am not coming back", I think they have issues of their own
@Mkb617, I always I had to misspell my swears... that's pretty dumb. It's not like swapping a letter is fooling anyone.
@AGreasedMonkey, or you could pick a different word? I am not against swearing but what I am saying is if that is what would make someone choose to stay away from a site they would otherwise enjoy.....
@Mkb617, I'm a mechanic, and we swear a lot to deal with stuff that goes wrong. Dome times "gosh darn it" just doesn't quite cover it. Like when you get the wrong inner tie rod for a truck that needs to be done in half an hour... I don't see anything wrong with cussing. Cussing at people is a little different though. I do agree for the most part. That's a dumb reason to leave.
@Mkb617, Honestly, it's more of a thing of principal. I don't swear often, but not being able to just seems bad.
@ archiethesailor, I don't swear around kids or the elderly, but that's about it. If an adjective is really that bar to you, you've got it pretty good.
@AGreasedMonkey, I'm sorry, maybe it's because I'm tired, but I'm not really sure what you're saying there.
@ archiethesailor, that's because I'm still drunk & not saying it well. Cuss words are just adjectives. It's dumb to let them offend you.
@AGreasedMonkey, Oh, sorry, I wasn't trying to say they offend me, I said it seems kind of bad that we can't use them on here, even though I don't normally swear.
@ archiethesailor, I doubt anyone would notice much anyway if you did.
@AGreasedMonkey, They probably wouldn't at most times, but I still prefer to rarely do it. I did do it once at work as a joke, because people have commented before on how rarely I do it. I was counting money with my boss, dropped something, it broke, and I just said "fvck" (still feels stupid to type it that way). Made my boss laugh, he said it was a mix between how little I reacted and the fact that he's never heard me talk like that.
