S2 Finished. Fixing up the code for new stuff later
— by verniy at 12/24/18 (Mon) 09:53:26
S2 goals have been finished.
The site software now has some good tools against spammers and ban evaders that can be used to lock out people from the site if they use proxies, VPNs or Tor. A few other mod tools as well.
On the cosmetic side, the CSS(kissu.css) is being worked on and optimized to cause less of a slowdown on browsers. The site code needs to be refactored and the github cleaned up a little. User experience needslots of improving. Things like the catalog need to be fixed up and the main posting behavior needs additions(such as the update box like 4chan has).
Other than that, the site is looking great. No complaints and as far as I can tell current features seem to be appreciated by current members.
S2 Site Code done

For all intents and purposes, the S2 objectives of adding new things to the site is done. I'm just fixing bugs and refactoring/organizing the code. Really all that needs to be done is more style and placement of certain elements. This videoplayer buisness is mostly a stand alone project that will run on the server, but it isn't actually part of the imageboard itself.
