/q/ is a place where the 4chan community can discuss the site amongst themselves and with moderators, developers, and the administrator (me).
I plan to hold regular Q&A sessions and try to clarify rules, solicit feedback, etc. We haven't had a board like this in quite some time (with the exception of >>>/img/
which still exists but is more or less unused), so we're still trying to get a better idea of how it should work. Super-oldfags will remember our IRC townhalls from 2004-2005, /q/, and /sug/. Those proved to be extremely productive and we're hoping this will be the same.
Any criticism should be constructive and related to 4chan. Do not attack other users. Spamming of any kind is not allowed, nor is trolling.
<span style="color: red; font-weight: bold; font-size: 110%;">Unless we are explicitly accepting board suggestions in a stickied thread, board requests will be ignored.
Do not request bans for users, these will also be ignored and removed. If a user is breaking a rule, <em>report their posts</em>. If a user is a known ban evader, <em>report their posts</em>.[/spoiler]
A few things:
-You must write a subject to start a thread.
-Post timers are high to discourage spam/one user creating a ton of threads.
-Forced anonymous and display ID are on.
-When saging, you will receive an ID instead of Heaven. sage will also not appear in the e-mail field.
-You don't need to post an image to start a thread.
-Threads that have received a reply/answer from a moderator or the administrator may be locked.
-We're using the ROBOT9000 script to block duplicate posts. (We will probably clear mutes/hashes from the DB regularly so this doesn't become annoying, but we want to encourage people write well thought out posts.)
