those of you that are regulars around these parts may have noticed that things have been some what broken as of late. Those same people may notice that there are several functions of the site that are currently not working correctly.
edited to say: Things should be working as required now, see below for notes. this post will auto destruct in 24 hours.
For this, I apologize. I am endeavoring to fix this shit, but it may take a little while.
Features broken, in order that I shall try to fix:
hotlinking – right now all off site loading of images is disabled. – fixed, we now have a img.myconfinedspace.com server that’s handling all off site image loading.
drop down comments – going to rethink how this is done – fixed. MCS+ members see this only
comment karma – going to rethink this as well. - fixed. sorta. didn’t do anything other than fix all the other broken shit and this magically started to work again.
post ratings – meh. one day – fixed, apparently the last site code update fubar’d the mcs+ if/else statements, so I fixed them.
It’s been much too long since we’ve done a theme day, so here we go:
Post something that you made, either you drew it, you paid someone else to draw it, or you photographed it or whatever.
If you have not done ANY of those, please feel free to take a picture of your refrigerator contents and post thoses. All posts will be posted on March 1st, 2010.
edited to say: if you made it yourself, please say so in the post. say “hey I made this” or “hey I commissioned this masterful statue of my erect body part”
super edited to say: theme day is going gang buster, but it’s raping my poor server, so I’ve disabled a few things, notably the submission engine. for those of you that got your posts in, good on you, for those of you that didn’t, whoops.Images, Site News on February 12th, 2010 by tiki god | Report This Post | Add to favorites

It’s not every day that I post original content on MCS, but here it is.Â The guy that’s in charge of art/story/layout/everything over at FUZZNUTS posted that he wanted to do some commission pieces, and this is the result of $10 well invested.
Think you have a better idea?Â Go over there and commission some pieces.Â anything that comes from that will be instaposted to the front page.Â I’m thinking about going to other webcomics and seeing if I can get some commissioned pieces, that would be fucking sweet, right.Site News on February 8th, 2010 by tiki god | Report This Post | Add to favorites
Combined with a recent influx of StumbleUpon users hitting MCS and the normal Monday morning traffic that we get around these part, you may notice a few more “500 errors” tomorrow.Â I’m working with my host to get things a little more locked down around these here parts. If you’re interested in such things, you can see traffic stats here : www.sitemeter.com/?a=stats&s=s40myconfinedspace&r=12

for those of you that are on twitter, I setup an account for just new image notifications.Â This is separate from the twitter account that I have for myself and will only tell you when there’s a new picture on the site:

so I bit the bullet and have prepurchased Star Trek Online, which is due to drop any day now.Â Anyone else interested in playing this game?Â would be nice if we could set up our own little guilde/etc in game.Â Please note that I’m not looking for a bunch of tards to play with, and fully expect adult behavior, even from the less than adult people.

hey guys, a quick note, I’ve reformatted theÂ ‘Top Ten‘ page so that all the results are cached, so the page should be much much faster then that previous version.Â The daily stats are cached by the hour, and all the others are cached once a day.
Also, it’s been in the 20′s this whole week.Â wtf guys, I live in Florida, not Michigan.
Should MCS have it’s own twitter feed that notifies you when there’s a new image?Site News on January 1st, 2010 by tiki god | Report This Post | Add to favorites
Hello everyone!Â Hope you all had a safe and enjoyable new years, I would like to tell you that I love and appreciate all of you.Â Over the last few years, you’ve given me a lot, and I hope you’ve enjoyed your time here.Â I have a few things to note:
1 – My new years resolution is to no longer drink alone.Â I know it sounds sad, but I’ve been doing it for the last 10 years, and I’m finally to the point that it’s a problem.Â so, cold turkey, tiki’s gone sober.Â unless I’m with other people that are drinking
2 – images are now 700 pixels wide.Â in all the years past images were 500 pixels wide, but from the stats that I’ve been seeing over the last 6 months indicate that the vast majority of visitors to MCS can support the larger image size.
3 – I’m going to be much much more stringent about the image upload guidelines.Â primarily, posts that aren’t labeled properly and posts that are just stupid will be declined.Â sorry to those of you that enjoy airplanes or dick girls.
So how did you spend your New Years Eve?Site News on January 1st, 2010 by tiki god | Report This Post | Add to favorites

I hope everyone had a safe and happy new year celebration, to signigfy the new year, MCS is now moving from 500 pixel images to 700 pixel images.Â it’s not a huge jump, but it’ll make things look bigger to you!
so what did you do for your new year eve party?Â I stayed at home and pet my fish.Site News, Video on December 18th, 2009 by tiki god | Report This Post | Add to favorites

1 – Comment rating is now members only.Â you don’t have to be MCS+, but you do need to be logged in.Â this is because of performance issues only.
2 – most importantly, I LOVE YOU GUYS.Â all of you.Â even the racist stupid pieces of shit that inspire hatred and ignorance.Â you’re all a part of MCS and I love you guys.Â continue to do what you do, just don’t be dicks about it.
3 – I hate vodka, but that’s all I have tonight.Â last night I tried to drink a cup of it with the normal ratio of alcohol / water that I do with whiskey, and I ended up puking for an hour straight, so tonight, I’m trying it at 1/2 strength.Â ugh.
4 – I need more whiskey.Â I’ll touch on this later.Â Oh hey, you know what I haven’t done in forever?Â Links to internet-d!Â You should join all the cool people over there that are talking about serious issues, like:

It’s amazing what I can do when I don’t drink.
Next up: Removing adverts in the forums for MCS+ users, adding UID in the forums, bringing internet forum karma from the forums to the main site, and being awesome.
Did I miss anything? Can I do anything for you?Â How’s your night going?
I have an idea on how to fix the comment rating/replying/subscriptions issue, but it requires that :
1) I have 100% attention on it
2) Comment be disabled for about 30 minutes
both of these require that I be:

also, two changes to mcs, from here on out, only mcs+ peeps can rate images.Â yep.Â also, the slider advert on the images for non mcs+ peeps is gone.Â that shit made MCS a grand total of $20 over the last 4 months that we’ve been testing it, and frankly that’s just not enough for the amount of distraction is was causing.
also: did you know that MCS had over 2 million pageviews last month?Â Sounds like a lot, but this time last year (during the 2008 elections) we actually hit over 3million in a single month.Â Madness, amirite?Site News on November 26th, 2009 by tiki god | Report This Post | Add to favorites

Just went through like 30 posts that were recently submitted, and fuck you whoever is uploading images that are CLEARLY NSFW but using the safe for work form.Â NAKED DEMONS ARE NSFW.Â Women getting drilled by 10 guys at once?Â NSFW.Â A man with 2 penises?Â yep, nsfw.
Christ people, it’s not hard to figure out what’s NSFW and what isn’t.Â it’s not like your going to get less views if it’s in the NSFW section.
