    May 19, 2017 I am the Vageater

    It came to my attention while browsing this magnificent site, that threads currently have a cool 'filter' to them in a sense. I'm referring to that lovely heart shaped button that sorts posts in the thread from most liked to least liked posts. Now honestly, it's one of the greatest systems to be implemented in the 21st century, but a thought occurred to me...

    Why stop there?

    What if you were browsing a thread related to a news article/life event extremely important to you, so you want to make sure you get every update? Well currently you can, but it's painful because inconsiderate ass holes flood these types of threads with things like "my thoughts and prayers are with the victims"

    This is where my big idea comes in... what if we had a media only filter next to the 'best posts' filter? Th way this filter would work is basically it will only show posts that contain some variation of a link/image/gif/video. Filtering out all the unnecessary "this is so tragic!" posts, for example.

    The news article/life event scenario is just an example where such a hacker mod would come in handy. In the time it's taken me to type up this post though, I've realized another time where this would be handy. The s80 members picture thread. It's essentially a "picture" thread, but there's a lot of roasting going on and adding this mod would triple as a safe space for the virgins, whilst making it easier to navigate the thread and finding images of posters to then dox them.

    @Help 3.0 is coming out soon and this is an opportunity you do not want to miss out on. PM me and I'll happily sell the rights for this idea to you guys for a small one time fee of a hundred bucks, so that you may implement it in time for 3.0.

    This is a really good idea. It could also be useful in a long artist chat thread to easily find YouTube videos etc.

    May 19, 2017 let the martyrs stretch

    thats a dope idea somethin like a feed of just embed codes, maybe there'd be a way to add a like little [UPDATE] tag so when someone's posting something related to the developing topic it sends a notification
    {8(1D%AYS(F27Q9OSU(68H1.jpg

    edit: just to clarify, i meant in like a news situation where something might be posted in the form of a quote or just plain text copy and pasted from a news site that might not have a way to trigger the Embed view thing, sort of add a new little update tag so that you don't need to actually post a video or social media embed to actually have it interact with the filter. that'd be super useful for big events like Cornell's death yesterday or the New York car crash, or even things like sports/elections/highly anticipated albums or whatever

    May 19, 2017 Pray for Kanye

    I was thinking the same, but i came up with the idea of bookmarks. Like when you are late, havent browsed sxn80 for like a week, and then you see a 200 pages Kanye West thread regarding new album. It would be cool to let OP or mod add bookmarks to it, like Album announcment: page 1, cover released: page 15, album leaked: page 68, album out now: page 85 etc. So you can keep up with the discussion you are interested in, like when youd like to read ppls first reactions to songs (these are hilarious sometimes) or quickly find somebody to DM asking for the link to the leak

  19. I'm so sorry I blew you off about that proposition. I didn't mean to ignore you.

    I've been thinking it over, I don't really feel the desire to code much anymore, nobody uses my site plus I'm not really a wiz at making plugins, just at designing sites. Thank you for the opportunity though.
