July 11, 2018

Moved to KiwiFarms as our new primary host. Big thanks to Null. Everyone should update their bookmarks and spread the word. Not only does this protect us from takedowns (that lack serious legal basis), it enables us to create a dynamic site with features like voting. All non-Kiwi mirrors may be deprecated, and should be considered legacy.

July 6, 2018

VIP feature is running, but I haven’t surfaced it yet until it’s refined. Due to the total number of posts I will likely need to start generating single large posts per VIP/Moderator/Verified user instead of individual pages with a list.

July 5, 2018

  • BUGFIX: More robust red text parsing, backfilled data.

  • Surface and archive threads with lots of bans (generate heatmap in plotly?)
  • Merge all post tables into one, add type flags (enabling both redtext+reason fields on all posts, reducing data duplication)
  • Graph ban length
  • Improve site CSS theme
