I'm only getting the MySQL errors when I post a REPLY. That's why I'm creating this new post instead of just replying to my first thread. Any ideas, admins/mods? Am I the only one suffering from this? Now that I recall, it's only ever happened with replies... And it's happened in more than one location, so it can't be my connection either.
I'm actually around daily, I just skip over the majority subject matter sometimes. I think I've become desensitized to creepy things.
I'm good. I've been looking into rebooting the Phalanx project which got sidetracked awhile back but there's not really room for any new social network-type sites. Thinking of just tying it into accounts for my indie games to give it relevance.
Have bits and pieces of unfinished game projects. Did the Ludum Dare last month. Finished 304 overall out of 900 or something. Really buggy game. Still read /x/ every now and then. Semi-disgruntled with world politics. Other than that, not much.

A silly question, perhaps, but is there a way we can delete our own threads? I've checked my Recent Posts and Recent Uploads, and >>18969 doesn't show up for me to delete. If it's not possible for me to delete it myself, is there a mod around who could delete it for me?

Sorry dude, didn't see this post before now. Yeah, I wanted to try and focus attention on the blog instead of here, since constantly bumping the thread would likely make me seem more than a little egotistic.
How do you delete your own threads? I've checked both Recent Posts and Recent Uploads, and it didn't give me the option of deleting the original post in my most recent thread - not that I want to delete it, I'm just curious as to how to do it for future reference.
I double checked the code and apparently, something was happening to the ownership where it was setting threads to unowned. It should be corrected for new threads, but I don't know how long it's been doing that. Let us know what thread it is through a support ticket and it'll be deleted.

Hi guys, I wanted to give you a heads up on stuff we're doing on the side, independent of Sanctuary, but in the future, hopefully finding a way to merge the two. We will migrate posts if the response is positive from you guys.
Phalanx (or Phalan+ as a joke) is my team's version of AnonPlus or Anon+, a project which initially started as one group's response to Google banning all people suspected of being Anonymous. Unfortunately that group fell apart and couldn't get anything done, so several rogue groups have stepped up to pick up the slack, mine included. You may see several AnonPlus appearing in the near future, but I'm only here to talk about ours.
It's part blog/part social network/part trended topics/part anonymous imageboard. We'd like to look for a way for you to monetize your work as well, whether it's coming up with a way for you to put up ads on your page, or allowing you to add sponsored campaigns or integrating feeds from other services.
We're starting to recognize the value in ownership and giving people credit for their work, which is why we're no longer developing Bastion software and moving forward with an overhaul in...

1) After Google removed several accounts on Google+ belonging to Anons, there were plans to start their own Anon+. I went to the organizing spots seeing if I could offer any help and just found them all in disarray.
The main team split up, many more groups claimed to be starting a site, but no concrete progress was made. Just too many ideas stacking that made the ultimate goal unachievable. The official 'idea' of the Anon+ platform idea is supposed to be a p2p application, much like torrents, accessed through onion servers etc... etc... All technology oriented, but no solutions that were accessible or user oriented.
In actual answer to the question... We're primarily trying to create a platform of communication that allows people to share information without the requirement of compromising their real identities. We're not trying to pander to ego, so much as we are placing emphasis on sharing dialogue. In other social networks, you have to know people to reach them, and they're just as censored as you are using their real names. Your notes (alarming/comforting/shocking) won't reach beyond people that don't have the courage to post it on their own...
I would either keep the mask symbol on the upper left -or- the united nation of anon on the bottom right.. I would remove the "we are legion" tagline and just let the name "Phalanx" be an oblique reference to it..
Once again, only suggestions :-)
Glad to read you guys but some thoughts in the anonymous (as in, without identity, not the group) aspect of your system.
I still havent been able to create my account, winch is a shame since i already tought of like.,..15-18 posts i want to make.
So now i had an idea, how about a new feature on the site? you can either log in your account and post freely, or post withount an account and the thread will need to be aproved by some mod before it is posted? this way people with dinamic ips and new users wont be excluded from making new threads, winch i believe will increase the number of users and posters.
I dont understand much about programming, so i dunno how hard it is to code what im suggesting, just tought it was a good idea and decided to share.

Is there a list of Banned Words that /sanc/ uses anywhere? I was just trying to post a new thread, but was given the error "Banned word used" - I've reread the thing I was going to post, and I honestly can't see a single offensive or iffy word in the text at all. Is there a way I can check the current list of banned words so I can edit my text as necessary? Cheers in advance.
Just noticed that our passwords are stored in our cookies, unencrypted. You might want to do something about that, just in case the site gets compromised or something. Obviously, encrypting them doesn't do too much, but it at least protects us from hackers that can't be assed to generate/download 500+ GB rainbow tables.
I suppose we could take it one step further in the next iteration of Bastion and change that up. We should also be destroying the cookies on logout for people on public computers, now that I think about it.
Right now, it's only unencrypted client-side in the cookies, so unless someone installs a virus designed to grab it from your computer, they won't find it on our database without backwards engineering scrambled values, or hijacking the whole site and injecting script to grab it from anyone who logs in.
We don't store the actual password here at least or really anything else of value, but I agree that the above case is an avoidable scenario. Hopefully you guys don't use the same e-mail/passwords as you do on other sites. I recommend you change it now, if you do.

Bastion 6 was the effort of a lifetime. We transported this system for use in Guild sites like FFXIV (Bastion 4) and Guild Wars 2 (Bastion 5) sites and gained so many new features that really added to the experience. At the same time, we stripped away some things, but brought most of them back for Bastion 6. Sanctuary is a special community and the generic rules don't apply.
From this point on, all updates are modular, so we won't have to do a massive overhaul ever again. I'm sure there's still a long ways to go with this site as we work towards finalizing everything to Bastion 6 Final, but here it is for you guys to use.
Here it is:
- Democratic moderation. That means 5 people flag a post for approval or block and it disappears. Registered users moderate unregistered users.
- Rewards are more generous. You get rewards for posting, for replying, you get rewards for moderating. These rewards will be usable in the new store (closed for re-balancing).
- Groups: We killed Mad Laboratory. 95% of projects were lost causes, so we decided that people were either in or out and if you could rally them into your...
Hey, it's not my wiki, you can do what you want with it. I'm just an anon with an opinion.
I think that the Wyoming Incident should be in there along with Slenderman. Those are musts because they were made up on SA as part of games or contests. Those two at least are not legit urban legends and don't have a whole lot of good creepypasta associated with them.
What I think the wiki really needs is a good comprehensive library of creepypasta. ED has a pretty big collection in text format so that might be a good place to start.
