I read her name as kayoka chan in a Pinterest photo and when I searched that name. Her stickers showed up in google images 🤷

The character's name is Nanase Kurumi, sticker made by joynet. Also has a sister, Nanase Konomi. The product pages call both characters "Menhera", which they're better known by than the full names on their profile.

Afaik, the term "menhera" is japanese slang for yami-kawaii which is some kind of fashion style meaning "sickly cute", not sure what's up with that. And I can't find where the name "kayako-chan" comes from, all the image results from searching that are from Pinterest so maybe the Pinterest users had the wrong name.

Another one of the mods told someone in Australia I think that they should take a 1 or 2 hour nap to not miss it...and that was earlier this morning. So either Jedi is full of shit, Jedi is not communicating with the other mods, or they aren't actually going to do anything. I cant find the comment with everything blowing up but If I find it I will link here.

Edit: Other people have linked the comment I was talking about below. If this isn't proof positive that Jedi is full of shit then I don't know what is.

EDIT 2: A few more hours per Mr. "one or two hours 5 fucking hours ago".

Shadowban means their comments don't appear when they post. The user doesn't realize this, unless they log out and see that their post is missing but still adds to the total comment count, or if someone else sees it (they'll usually get a notification of a reply but don't see any posts in their inbox).

He can't tell you what the posts said... That's literally what shadowbanning does.

It happens quite often, even in smaller subreddit communities. I don't know if it's an automatic behaviour by Reddit, or if it is an action taken by moderators.

Either way, it's inexcusable.

see more

It's not necessarily shadowbanning, comments removed by moderators will still count towards to the total number of comments in a thread but won't be shown to anyone but the user or the moderators. Comments that are deleted by user or removed by moderator will completely disappear unless if they have child comments; only removed comments that have children will show as "[removed]".

It could potentially be automoderator that's auto-removing comments, many subreddits have filters that require comments that trigger a flag (like containing profanity or comments from new users to prevent spam) to be manually approved by moderator. As of this comment, removeddit is only showing 1 removed comment for me, and it's showing as "[removed too quickly to be archived]" which means automoderator or a spam filter probably got to it.

Not gonna try it, but please tell me that deactivate button isnt one click like resigning from a subreddit is

Pretty sure that'll have no effect on front page/multis/all. Inside a sub they could eaither make whatever ad highlight color off-limits for posts or make the ad highlight color configurable and leave it up to mods.

2 points · 1 month ago · edited 1 month ago

If ads were different colors on different subs, that might confuse normal users. And making an entire color off-limits is pretty restrictive, if you blocked only the exact color then you could still use a shade similar to it, and if you block all similar shades then mods could no longer use an entire category of colors. If promoted posts were a mute shade, like a light gray-ish blue, I think that could probably work without restricting mod's color options.

Normal users are going to be confused by ads that look like content anyway.

8 points · 1 month ago · edited 1 month ago

The ads have always looked like content, they've just always been at the very top. But now that Reddit is doing their infinite scrolling thing, having ads only at the top no longer makes sense. If ads were different colors on different subreddits, I think that would be even more confusing. If a certain subreddit were to use a certain color for important posts or megathreads, and another subreddit uses a similar shade for ads, then a user that spends the majority of their time on the former subreddit visiting the latter subreddit would be attracted to looking at the ads first before any other post. On old Reddit promoted posts are always consistently at the top, likewise on new Reddit, ads would need to presented in a way that creates a consistent experience for users, while still being noticeably ads as to not be deceptive, while not restricting community styling options. So there's a balance that needs to be found.

Are the drafts encrypted any way?

If not it’s a bit of a misnomer to tell people that only they can access their drafts as some might assume local storage.

some might assume local storage

Not really, not everyone is familiar with technology enough to know about local storage and lots of websites like Gmail store drafts on your account. Personally I'd much rather prefer drafts to be on my account on not on local storage so I can access them from different devices. Encryption might be nice, but I'm not sure what the point would be since the final draft you actually post can't be encrypted.

No but most people are simple minded enough to assume that a draft is different from publishing and thing it would stay local.

I don’t mean to imply users will even know what local storage is as a technical matter.

If you tell people something is private, it should really be private.

see more
7 points · 2 months ago

On websites, "private" usually means in the context of other users. Other websites like dropbox and onedrive say that your stuff are "private". Marketing people typically say things are just "private" because technical concepts like "private except to company employees" tend to confuse people. You should always assume the company's employees can see all your stuff unless they explicitly say otherwise.

No but most people are simple minded enough to assume that a draft is different from publishing and think it would stay local.

I think you are overestimating the intelligence of the average end user. If one saves a draft on one device and then use the application on another device and not see their drafts they might probably get angry and yell at you saying, "where is my draft?! Did you delete my drafts?!?!"

I like it, I understand memcached isn’t very secure, what is redis and how would you recommend to structure a database in order to handle sessions?

I understand memcached isn’t very secure

memcached can be secured if you change the port from the default and lock it down to only ip addresses you trust using iptables or an equivalent tool.

what is redis

Like memcached, Redis is a key-value store for caching. Here's a good SO answer on the difference between redis and memcached. If you can use Redis over memcached, you should go with Redis.

how would you recommend to structure a database in order to handle sessions?

Check out this link: https://secure.php.net/manual/en/function.session-set-save-handler.php and also take a look at the User Contributed Notes section which has some examples on how to setup the database and the SessionHandlerInterface implementation.

At minimum, you'd want the table to have:

column type comment
session_id varchar(255) this is the session token id which'll be put in the cookie
session_expires int, bigint, or datetime depending on your preference and the database you're using when the session would expire
session_data text the session data (all the values stored to $_SESSION) would be serialized and stored here

How would you suggest keeping session alive after browser is closed (if a user checks a "Remember me"-like checkbox when logging in. When they return to the website after a restart, they'll be signed in. Like Google, Reddit and Youtube etc works.)?

What I've done so far is to make PHP use a DB instead of files in a similar way as suggested above to save session information. Should I just set the session lifetime and cookie lifetime to the same values (like 7 days for example) and "be done with it" (I'm assuming this should work unless I've missed something) or is this bad practice for security reasons (or other reasons for that matter). Because if I'm not mistaken, the cookie will be kept by the browser for those seven days and it will contain the session id. The server will also not remove the session id until the lifetime is up. So unless I've misunderstood something, this should continue to work and keep the user signed-in?

Is this a good idea or would you suggest a completely different method?

Also, on a separate note, what function is used to generate the session id that is stored in the cookie and DB (if I don't manually set one myself with session_id())? I tried looking in the PHP manual but couldn't find it. (I found session.hash_function but I'm not sure that's what I'm looking for and it seems to have been removed in 7.1.0 and I currently use 7.2.5. Also if that function is in fact the hash function used, from where does it get it's input, which I suppose should be randomly generated right?)

Should I just set the session lifetime and cookie lifetime to the same values (like 7 days for example) and "be done with it"

That's generally how it's done: if "remember me" is checked you set the lifetime to a number of seconds since the epoch, otherwise set it to 0 for the session to expire when the browser closes. Make sure session.cookie_lifetime and session.gc_maxlifetime (the global max lifetimes) are properly set, and session_set_cookie_params() should be called with the client-specific lifetime before calling session_start(). session_set_cookie_params needs to be called upon every request so that lifetime "countdown" be reset whenever a "remember me" user accesses the site again.

Because if I'm not mistaken, the cookie will be kept by the browser for those seven days and it will contain the session id. The server will also not remove the session id until the lifetime is up.

Yes, the cookie and session id would be kept in the client's browser and your database for 7 days, which is fine. Just make sure you're using HTTPS and have session.cookie_secure enabled to make sure cookies are served securely, and also make sure you're regenerating the session id whenever you login or logout.

Having these session IDs lying around can be potential security risks (like everything else stored in your database) if your database is compromised or if a particular client gets compromised by self-XSS, malware, or something; which is why some websites like Reddit have account activity pages that show all active sessions for your account; and some websites send you an email whenever they detect a login. If you think your database might be compromised, you'd want to log off all affected users by deleting the relevant rows in your sessions table.

Also, on a separate note, what function is used to generate the session id that is stored in the cookie and DB

It's session_create_id. There's also session_regenerate_id, it can do some extra stuff, but it's basically a shortcut for session_id(session_create_id()).

You left out the part where you said "Man I hope you get shot by a white cop someday" in reply to that person. Regardless of the situation or context, it's not appropriate to advocate suicide or wish death upon someone in r/aww.

it would be appropriate if the other person were attempting homicide, and since blacks commit homicide at a disproportionate rate it's a somehwat justified assumption.

Here's an ELI5: reddit's most important database for storing comments sometimes does a hiccup because it sucks. And lots of stuff depend on that database, so when it hiccups it affects everything else. And that causes you to see error pages on Reddit such as 500 Internal Server Error or 503 Service Unavailable (which is what he means by 5xx). And alienth is doing a thing to make the database no longer suck.
