Minor programming notes:
1 - added the ability to log in with various social media sites. All of them should only be looking for your email address and permission to use their services to log in. If you already have an account on MCS and want to take advantage of it, you have a couple options: A – log in with your MCS account and attach your social media account on your profile page or B – if you have the same email on both MCS and social account, just log in with the social one. it should be smart enough to automatically attach itself but YMMV.
2 – changed out the ad provider yet again. The previous one had popups, videos and paid 1/10 of the one prior to that, so I’m pretty interested in finding one to pay the server bills.
3 – speaking of paying the bills, I spend a good bit of my life curating the stuff that shows up here. Thinking of setting up a Patreon account, but that seems really fucking ausentacious, and I have no clue what the interest would be. obviously I would set a level for people to be MCS and to just remove all ads on the site completely at another.
Thoughts on these things? I thought I was going to be able to download and play some Destiny tonight, but an hour and a half later, I’m still only at 15% download, so I guess I can forget that.Site News on July 3rd, 2014 by tiki god | Report This Post | Add to favorites
I think we went a couple years without tagging anything, I’ve made it up to 2009 so far, with over 30,000 more posts to tag. I’m hoping to have this done by the 10 year anniversary, which is coming up pretty damn quick. That means I’ll need to tag about 70 posts a day, every day, until the anniversary.
not looking forward to that, but I think it can be done.Site News on June 30th, 2014 by tiki god | Report This Post | Add to favorites
MCS has joined Tumblr, guess it’s not a passing fad. Maybe one day we’ll post to Google Plus too?
Anyways, if you’re into that sort of thing, feel free to follow MCS on tumblr: myconfinedspace.tumblr.com/
In theory, all posts will go there, but this is the first one that I’ve manufactured since signing up and setting up the connection, so who know?Images, Site News on June 18th, 2014 by tiki god | Report This Post | Add to favorites

So I fixed the NSFW side of MCS, and apparently somehow managed to fucking delete images going back 4 years in the process.
Thank god I’ve done backups religiously, or else I’d be having a panic attack. It’s going to take a bit to get the backup restored, so until then, please enjoy these images from 2006.
Edited 6-15 9:50pm :
I’ve been able to restore the images posted by me in 2014. the user submitted stuff will be uploaded slowly over the next couple days, then I’ll restore the stuff from 2011-2013.
Edited 6-16 6:26pm:
Commenting on MCS+ posts has been re-enabled. Now I’m heading home, eating something and then working on restoring the rest of the images.
Edited 6-17 9am:
Finishing up the restoration now, looks like about 700,000 images in total were inadvertantly deleted, then restored, yay. Working on getting the audio ads removed from the site, anything else you want me to pay attention to?
Edited 6/17 9pm:
All clear, everything is back to normal, with some additional fixes. Now I get to work on integrating the cookies between the main site and the NSFW site. That should be fun.
I think I should run a back up first though . . .

If you notice that MCS is down, give it 30 seconds and try again.
if you’re on the nsfw subdomain it may take a wee bit longer than just 30 seconds, i’m rolling that all into a wordpress network, so yay progress?
Update: Turns out it takes longer than 30 seconds to back up 74,638 posts, 404,437 comments and over 145,912 images.
wow, that means that in about 15 days we’re going to hit 75,000 posts. fuck.
Update 2: I’m about 50% done with the upgrades, but I feel like shit tonight, might have a cold or something, ugh. Going to finish this all up after I get back from watching X-men tomorrow.Site News on April 17th, 2014 by tiki god | Report This Post | Add to favorites
Couple people have mentioned that they’re getting audio ads, which I’m unfortunately not seeing (hearing?) myself. If you can tell which ad block it’s coming from, let me know they all have a label above them.
EDIT: It’s the new ones, which is sorta what I figured, but people are pointing the finger in the right direction, which is awesome. Oh, what’s not awesome though? racist comments or bullshit image embeds that have nothing to do with the post that people are commenting on. I’m going to start deleting those as I see them and they piss me off.Site News on March 12th, 2014 by tiki god | Report This Post | Add to favorites
so hello there guys, how’s it going?
what’s been happening in your worlds?
I’m about to think about upgrading MCS’s server, though it’s certainly not required, the host I’m using is offering a 2x faster server for about 20 bucks less than I’m paying now. I think I’ll move to a wordpress Network style installation, which will lead to all sorts of fun options, including giving everyone the ability to register their own blogs.
thoughts on these possibilities?Site News on February 7th, 2014 by tiki god | Report This Post | Add to favorites
You likely have noticed that there’s some content from other sites showing up on MCS, I’m trying something out, the first phase of it didn’t work the way I wanted it to (the nsfw content that was feeding to another site of mine), but it’ll all be worksafe / interesting crap. you may see below where phase 2 went bonkers and imported like 10 posts instead of one, so yay for comic book wallpapers?Site News on December 24th, 2013 by tiki god | Report This Post | Add to favorites

You know what we’ve never done?
A game of the year voting. Here’s how to take part:
Check out The tag “Game of the Year 2013” and see if the game you want to nominate is there. if it is, rate it. if it’s not, submit it with the tag of “Game Of The Year 2013″. When I see it, I’ll have it publish the moment I see it.
Right now, all that’s there is a game that I’ve never played, so……
A week or so after the end of the year, I’ll grab the highest rated game of the year.

Hi guys! I’m
having a wedding this weekend, gettin married today! just as we’re about to run out of posts on MCS, as a gift to me, would you be a dear and upload some images?
I need at least one volunteer image admin, someone to take the dropboxed images and rename them something that makes sense, rather than “tumblr_pron_111.png”, same with the funny / humorous stuff.
You’ll need to know how to use / operate / install:
- Google Images plugins
It’ll help bunches if you’ve been a member of the site for a while, or can present a compelling argument for choosing you.
Edit: I have someone working on it now, if they dont’ work out, I’ll go down the list…
that being said, if you have dropbox installed, you should share a folder with firstname.lastname@example.org and as you drop images in there we’ll move them into the anoniqueue….Site News on September 3rd, 2013 by tiki god | Report This Post | Add to favorites
Anonymous upload are in the sidebar now, you can even view all the ones that are pending. It’s nearly instantaneous, so if you uploaded something and don’t see it on the link, something got borked.
Author pages now show all posts that you’ve ever submitted, even if they got rejected. This does not include the NSFW content, as that’s deleted outright. It also includes content that’s been submitted but not published yet, which is pretty cool if I say so myself.
Also, I’ve added an Author profile image in the title bar of each post, so it’s a little more clear who has written that particular post. I plan on having an RSS feed for each user’s posts too, that’ll be up soon.
Squared theme isn’t working the way I want it to, which is to show ALL images in a post all at once. Also, the searching / tags / category pages are broken, so I need to fix those as well.
In the forums, I’m keeping a running tally of what I had to eat for lunch, it’s pretty interesting stuff.
Any other suggestions or comments on the site?Site News on September 2nd, 2013 by tiki god | Report This Post | Add to favorites
there is a new way to upload images to MCS, you’ll see it in the side bar and on the submit image page. You can upload up to 100 images at a time, and it’s a simple drag and drop operation.
Next, I’m going to make it so rejected posts show up on your own author page.
And then I’m going to make it so you can submit images via email.
what what, wasabi in the butt!
I need your help in testing this out though, please try it out and let me know how it goes. Images submitted through this new system won’t have your name attached to them, but will be “submitted” by tikibot.Site News on August 13th, 2013 by tiki god | Report This Post | Add to favorites
going to be flying into nashville late tonight and will be there all day tomorrow. What kind of trouble can I get into in that city?
Today, I had three interviews, an epic 8 hour meeting, a few drinks, a nice salmon dinner and then came back to my room to surf the internets. Did not get into any trouble, and now I have a 4AM flight to catch, so I’m going to head to bed, yay?Site News on August 12th, 2013 by tiki god | Report This Post | Add to favorites
you’ll notice there’s a new template available to use. It’s not really ready for prime time, but it’s there for you to see what it looks like.
Also, thinking of making stickers to mail to people. it’d be like $.25 per sticker to make and then like $.50 to mail the stupid thing, anyone interested?
I’d do two designs, one with just “M[c]S” on it and the other with one of those nifty logos that someone thought up for the site.
So, interested? Thoughts on the additional layout?
