I have just migrated the local database into jsonstore.io so everything will work again. Sorry for the delay! Feel free to leave any other feedback and bug reports!

Is it just me, or is this no longer working?

Vandesm14 (2254)

@AdCharity I'm working on a fix. I tried migrating the database from repl.it to jsonstore.io as repl.it doesn't support local databases. Its broken right now, but it'll be fixed and actually work soon.

@Vandesm14 Cool! I saw it working earlier so I was a bit concerned.

Out of curiosity, how do bans work? Is it a IP ban, or something else?

Vandesm14 (2254)

@TaylorLiang Bans are IP-based, but right now they're broken due to repl.it not allowing the real IP from showing though (it reports temporary proxy IP).

@Vandesm14 Oh. Using my school Chromebooks might have a problem, as for some reason they have the same ip

Vandesm14 (2254)

@TaylorLiang That's because all of the devices are routed though a router, which uses it's IP as all of the device's IP's.

Have you thought about a slightly-modified Markdown, or maybe some BBcode-style markup for styling posts? Other than that, great work.

Vandesm14 (2254)

@trg5503 Thanks! I will put markdown on the list! Of course, a limited markdown so posts won't be able to spam large headings. Although, I could use a view post page to view the actual content of the post and have a snippet of the plaintext/content of the post in the list view. Thanks for your feedback!

Suggestion: Confirm if the user wants to report the post, and if they say yes, send a report and hide the post from them

Vandesm14 (2254)

@TaylorLiang Sounds like an easy task. I can do that.

Vandesm14 (2254)

Update: Official moderation system is out! I can now delete posts and ban users. If you feel a post is profane or inappropriate, just click the report button.

Vandesm14 (2254)

Update: There is now upvoting and downvoting. This did require me to reset the DB though (sorry about that).

@Vandesm14 there seems to be a lot of purges now

Vandesm14 (2254)

@TaylorLiang I'm just cleaning up the profane and inappropriate posts.
(I'm working on a better reporting system)

@Vandesm14 I noticed that there is now DB encrypting. Im wondering what that is.

Vandesm14 (2254)

@TaylorLiang I'm encrypting the database so bans, posts, and ip's aren't seen publicly by anyone viewing the repl.
I'm working on a fix right now because the site's down due to a database error.

i find the lack of marquee support offensive 3:< (definitely not the user named master marquee)

Vandesm14 (2254)

@mwilki7 It would be nice, yes, but I'm escaping HTML so it's not possible with the current setup.
