We could do that in an automated fashion, where all previous commenters get emailed once a new comment is posted?

Works, just make sure there's an easy way to unsubscribe.

This would be nice to ensure consistency when it gets fetched elsewhere as well. Right now, unless you're very quick to edit, your original title will be fetched by AnimeTosho.

Being able to subscribe to a torrent that isn't yours might also be good, for people who comment and forget to check back to see if there was a response.

Announcements / Re: Authorised torrents and trusted users

Would it be possible to support scene-style group tags as well as Anime-style?

My releases use scene naming (e.g. Tamako.Market.S01.720p-Hi10p.BluRay.AAC2.0.x264-CTR), where the "-CTR" indicates the group tag. I'm assuming this probably won't be picked up by your default parser if it's looking for [AnimeGroup] tags.

Suggestions / Re: Sorting suggestion
« on: May 16, 2017, 07:58:28 pm »
Lack of sorting options does seem to be the most common complaint I hear about Anidex so far. Even a quick rudimentary solution would be better than nothing. I think sorting and some basic form of trusted uploaders system would be the two biggest steps toward new user friendliness.

I'd want an irc address bbcode, a clickable one. Or an automation like TT has or nyaa had.

Already possible, but not really needed. Your irc channel is already linked on the torrent page. But if you still want to add it to the description, just do this:

Code: [Select]
[url=irc://]#[email protected][/url]

For example
Code: [Select]
[url=irc://]#[email protected][/url]

Not possible, because URL codes aren't implemented. Just doublechecked to be sure. When they do work, then yeah, you can just write your own irc url (assuming it doesn't prepend "HTTP". by the way holo, don't do this, mmkay?)

Suggestions / Re: Change tracker from HTTP to HTTPS
« on: May 15, 2017, 07:49:53 pm »
HTTPS isn't commonly used for trackers because of the increased overhead and how many clients it breaks. A lot of private trackers tried to introduce HTTPS over the last 6 months or so following WCD's demise and almost immediately reverted it or added an option for users to still use HTTP because most of their seedboxes immediately failed to connect.

I'd introduce it as an option but not require it.

Bugs / Group-ID is breaking, variable size check
« on: May 15, 2017, 07:40:17 pm »
See this group as an example:

Code: [Select]
Array ( [group_id] => 128 ) string(1) "0"
gonna need to account for your quickly increasing number of groups here.

edit: or maybe this is just debug code that's being run on the live site? oh dear.

Bugs / Re: Members can like their own posts
« on: May 15, 2017, 07:39:27 pm »
That is true. Hmm, well I would say it would be easy? While I know nothing much about web code, wouldn't it be possible to have the "like" function for that user disabled/greyed out? And if statement if you like. If logged on users name = submitter or groups name then no like

As Lenmaer said, anyone can just proxy in and like themselves. Or just logout and like from their own IP (system doesn't check for this). Or just use their phone on a cell network for another IP. All sorts of ways.

It's not really solvable, because this is a public tracker. If you restrict likes to only logged in users, I fully expect them to go virtually unused because most public users are lazy as hell or untrusting of an account system. Conversely, if it's available for anyone to use, it will likely be abused a ton. Not that it has so far, it seems, but it's still there.

This was true on Nyaa as well, but I don't know if it's really worth going after. It's pretty much impossible to prevent if someone wants to give them self a like.

Suggestions / Page Titles
« on: May 13, 2017, 12:42:32 am »
not sure if bug report or suggestion, but anyway:

Pages need proper titles. At the moment most pages render the title simply as "Anidex - Other", with the exception of certain root pages (i.e. Anidex - Groups).

I would also recommend that the order be reversed once proper titles are implemented for the drilldown pages. Best practice in page titles is to have the name of the site last in the title, and content in increasing order of specificity first. For example,

Name of Article -> A. V. Club
Section of site (Forums) -> Kametsu
Specific page (Snatch history) -> BroadcasTheNet
Specific page (System) -> Sonarr

Anidex currently has this reversed, (Anidex -> Section of site (Groups)), which means that as tabs shrink in size less useful information is displayed (i.e. the site is identified twice, by the favicon and by the page title), and specific tab information is left out leading to masses of tabs just named "Anidex - ..."

Also important (I know it's been brought up, but just to reiterate) would be a spoiler tag function, or some other function to hide text. Media info pastes are a wonderful resource but they quickly and dramatically expand vertical space, so having some way to hide them would be good.

A full mediainfo parser like you see on AB or other sites would be awesome too, but just any sort of hide function would be a good starter (and also useful for being able to post, you know, spoilers).

Suggestions / Commenting wishlist
« on: May 11, 2017, 10:52:24 pm »
I know comments aren't enabled yet but wanted to put together a quick wishlist for features I'd like to see once they do appear:
  • Subscription/notification system: Either email notifications or just a page where you can easily see which of your torrents have new comments so you can respond.
  • Limited markup support: Give commenters some markup, but not much. No need for them to have anything fancy (basic formatting like bold/italic/underline/URL is probably sufficient. you don't want people posting in all sorts of stupid colors).
  • Avatars: figured this is already going to be integrated since Anidex supports avatars in profiles by default, but just wanted to make sure it gets into comments.
  • Threaded commenting: This one is debatable, but I'd like to see threaded commenting so you can reply to specific comments more directly as opposed to 5-6 comments down in the case of a popular release. If this can't be implemented, some sort of direct mentioning system might also work (i.e. @username). Some way to address users directly.

this is just a starter list obviously, more ideas always welcome.
