Why are so many movie stars cultists?

I mean, scientology is a collection of them, but even Gwyneth Paltrow has her own snake-oil company that also has its own culty scam seminars

Because stardom makes their lives hell. They can't do as much as go down to the groceries without people flocking over them. Cults are a place where that doesn't matter, and it gives them a sense of belonging too, so when the join they feel a level of appretiation they do not feel elsewhere.

It is one place where they can go to and meet people without stardom being a problem.

That, or they are just scammers who know that people go to cults for that reason, and they try to take advantage of that.

So I recently discovered this site. First of all I appreciate that this place is fully functional without JS. I would like to know if the board software is available. I would love to use it in my site. How does this site control spam though?

I definitely think those are fair points, I just think in most cases JS should be a bonus enhancer rather then a requirement. On some sites that can't be done, but forums and imageboards rarely have a need to require JS just to load and post (captcha being the biggest exception I can think of)

On a fundamental level, an imageboard (or any social network site for that matter) does not need it, yes, and I do make it a point to get every site I work on done with bare minimum javascript. But on a practical level, the site needs it really badly, to make things simpler and faster for the users. People don't sit in front of the monitor pressing F5 F5 F5 when waiting for replies; they expect their phone to ping to notify them of a new reply. That's just how it is now.

Regardless of that, I want the new design to retain every function of the current one, there must be no regressions. And that means there's still some work left to be done.

Tumblr raw images are no longer accessible. You're now stuck with shitty 1280px downscales.

As much as I am happy about tumblr tanking, what alternative is there for NSFW art?
- deviantart only allows nudity, not porno
- pixiv requires censoring (for at least the title pic), they have no RSS feeds
- twitter compresses the shit out of all image files, uses random unidentifiable filenames, and most people flood it with reposts - it's not a gallery/blog, is what I'm saying.
- newsgrounds allows porno but not loli. no RSS

I think most people just forgot about this site. The site being semi-broken for a few years probably didn't help, and neither does the fact that most people browse from mobiles (we don't have a mobile layout yet).

It's interesting though, I've been checking the archives lately, and a lot of people who are normally on tumblr were posting here. Some bigger webcomic artists too.

I think it was the design change that killed the site, then the fact that 4chan added /aco/ (which is an incredibly shit board, but because it is on 4chan, it sucks away traffic from everywhere else).

plus4chan will close enter read-only mode 1/1/2018 is on double-secret probation


No excuses, no speeches, announcement only, final destination.

[email protected]

I have been approached by someone who is not only going to fix the code, but will also help me handle at least some of the day-to-day administration. This is pro bono so I don't have a date for when it will be complete, but at that time we will do a soft-relaunch with the updated software. Until that time, +4 will remain open unless/till we get a nastyspam, and then it will go read-only either for a short time or until improvements are complete.

/tek/ thread time!

Ever since I gave Tiki advice on getting a new desktop, I've been wanting to share my experience with how my own build went, and I figure I ought to do that already.

I think I got a pretty solid design here: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/ZWHvRB
Portability since I want to lug it between my parent's houses, decent in most areas of performance, very solid power supply, damage resistant motherboard. Unfortunately I hadn't ordered anything online before, and asked my mom for help. After some confusion with credit cards, we ended up going with a different case, this one to be exact: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/silverstone-case-sstps07b
