I’ve officially retired and shut down the older server after monitoring it’s bandwidth for a while.  Let me know if you see anything wonky, I’m going to be cancelling that contract in 48 hours unless I see something urgent that needs to be addressed.

You should now be able to submit posts again!

Hey guys!  I think I’ve got it all figured out and have edited things in a manner that would let YOU the USER submit posts!

Just click on this link and you should be able to add posts.  Let me know if you have any issues!

Also, how’s the server move treated you?  How as you weekend?  I went to a new Brewery here in Tallahassee, and while I hated everything he had on tap, I had a great time!

Welcome to the new server!

Welcome to the new server. Everything you say here will survive until the end of time itself!

 

Or at least until the day I forget to pay the server bills, LOL!

 

I’m going to stickie to this post until I see that most of the traffic on the old server has decreased.

 

While we wait for that, answer this question : what kind of industry do you work in?

me I’m a data analyst and it’s awesome.

This is a monthly message to help keep MCS afloat!

Over the past 10 years, what began as a personal image blog has turned into viable community of many contributors with new posts going up every hour, every day. I’d like to dedicate more time to the MCS community, as well as expand the reach of MCS, and I think the best way to do that is Patreon.

In order to do this, I’ve created a page at Patreon.  Right now the list of benefits is pretty light, basically just giving out MCS+ again (yay!).  I’d like to add more and would like your help in suggesting what you’d like to see in our community.

I’m sure all you people eat food, drink beer or do whatever it is you do with Poutine.

Take some pictures, Find some pictures, submit them.  The topic is : Pizza, Poutine Or Beer.

Don’t feel like making a post? you can email them to mcs-image@tikiwebgroup.com   This is something new that I’m trying, not sure how it’s going to work out.  In a perfect world I’d know how to get images from a simple text too, so you could just text them to me, but google voice doesn’t support image attachments for some stupid reason.

The software that MCS runs on actually supports posting by email, but I’ve never been able to get it to work the way I’d like it to, bleh.

    Quick programming note: I’ve added a couple small things to the top of the side bar:

    • Top Commentators – is only on the front page, and it shows you show’s the most talkative on the site
    • Unread Posts – shows only if you’re logged in, and will show you the last 10 posts that you haven’t clicked on, so get to clickin!

    On an unrelated but interesting note, the top 10 page on nsfw.myconfinedspace.com was hosed in a couple ways.  I think I got them all fixed, go check out the top nsfw images if you’re of the mind to.

     

    Anything else around here that’s broke as fuck that I can fix?

    I’ve completely moved the sign in form from the sidebar to the top of the page, it’s nicer up there and makes more sense in the long run.

    In addition to this, I’ve added two links to the header bar: Favorites and “My author page” which will show you all sorts of fun stats.

    Interesting note : if you’re not logged in, it’ll show you a random person’s Author page, which is interesting.

    I’ve made the new post submission system live, if you’re unable to access it, have questions, or just want to be noticed, please comment below.

    FAQ:

    Q: How do I access the new submission system?
    A: click on “Add Content” link in the header link bar.  Please note that it’s all the way over to the left, immediately after the “home” link.

    Q: WTF is this, I can’t figure it out
    A: This is the default wordpress post editor, only MCS Plus members have been able to access it in the past, but now everyone’s going to be able to submit content that way. Write the obvious title and post content, then just drag and drop all the images you want to the post edit screen. Add some tags if you’d like, select a category, then hit submit. Tiki will come along eventually and see if the content is worthy of the front page and will post it over if it is, or mark it to be left where it is.

    Q: What is the average air speed of an unladen swallow?
    A: About 15km/h

    Q: What’s next?
    A: formatting of the plus side of MCS: recent images, recent blog posts. A return of the forums.

    Q: What can I post?
    A: Anything, videos, images, SFW content, NSFW content, forum posts, blog posts, movie reviews, whatever you want to post! If it’s worthy, it will be promoted to the front page of the site.

    What the holy fuck is going on in France?

    653421

    10/21/2005, I was bored at work and decided to start a blog on blogger, (it’s still out there too!), then about 6 months later I got pissed that blogger didn’t support tags or categories so I tried out a couple other blogging systems and landed with wordpress.  Fast forward to today and there’s been so much that’s happened since then:

    • 91,788 Posts
    • 165,189 Image Attachements
    • 418,323 Approved Comments
    • over 100,000,000 Page Views

    I’ve loved working on this site and have really enjoyed everything that it’s taught me. I’d like to think there’s a huge community of people out there that are still actively visiting and not commenting, but if I’m being truthful, the traffic and commenting on the site has been on a steady decline for a fair bit of time, it was right around when I finally got everything stable and didn’t have any significant downtime. Even with less traffic though, there’s still a good community here and I love each and every one of you!

    So that being said, let’s talk about what my vision was, what it morphed into and what it’s going to change into in a relatively short time period:

    When I first started: Shit son, I wanted to make me some money! That worked until the site was kicked out of Google’s Adsense program because of America’s Shame of the Female Body. We showed one too many boobs, nipples or butts and got kicked to the curb and the site’s struggled to pay for itself every god damn month. I have something in action that’s going to solve this, but that’s going to have to be vague and unspoken of until it actually goes through. End result though will be the removal of all third party ads and only loading ads that I’ve created myself for my own sites. Originally I was going to be the only one making posts and adding images and I was only adding like 4-5 a day.

    What it turned into: Lots of people wanted to add pictures and it was easiest to just give everyone accounts and let them post them and I would approve them. It worked well until one of the image submission engines I was using got a bit too complicated and old and is now pretty much just a broken piece of shit that’s a security and convenience hassle. It’s impossible to move images/posts from the SFW side to the NSFW side and there’s always someone posting the wrong shit to the wrong side. The site isn’t making money, there’s god damn popup ads on mobile and I’m having to either delete quality submissions on both sfw/nsfw or post them and hope no one wonders why there’s some political cartoon wedged between a topless blonde and a topless brunett getting railed by a octopus.

    What I’m working on (still?): plus.myconfinedpspace.com it’s going to have the image submissions, blog posts, forum entries, and everyone/anyone can post whatever the fuck they want to. Want to post a movie review? Awesome, go for it. Want to post a picture series of you and your wife trying out adult toys? Go for it! Want to just dump 100,000 images of ponies? bob’s your uncle. Obviously there’s going to have to be some things done to keep it a relatively sane area, but it’s going to be a mix of sfw and nsfw content that will then be moderated out to the two different parts of the site.

    1. Forums
    2. Blog Posts
    3. Image Gallery

    What’s the hold up?  The custom code it’s going to take to move images and shit from plus to other places.  I have it for the most part, but there’s still a couple niggling issues that are keeping me up at night.  Here’s where I have to give some mad props to Trello, without their system of task management with checklists and board I think I would have gone insane with what I’m trying to do with this.  With their help, I can actually see what’s on my plate and what it’s going to take to get it done.

    God I love you guys, here’s to 10 more years of #blessed MCS time!

    I’ve turned off the front page NSFW notifier, last couple of weeks the NSFW side of MCS has been getting more traffic than the SFW side, so by this point I’m sure everyone knows there’s naked ladies and where to find them.

    In other news, I’m about half way done with revamping the image/post submission system, you can see my hard throbbing work over at plus.myconfinedspace.com

    I realize it’s in the middle of the summer and half of you are too busy getting drunk and getting fucked, but grab some funny pictures or something and post them to MCS!  There’s currently three different ways to submit content, and it’s totally confusing to read, but easy to understand:

    1. Main Site wordpress editor (mcs+ users only!)
    2. Main Site submission engine (everyone!)
    3. MCS+ wordpress editor (everyone sorta!) don’t use this, it’s not cross posting yet

    I’m still testing the Plus.Myconfinedspace.com stuff, there’s a fair bit of shitty code that everyone can see still, but everyone should be able to create posts and images there.  Right now it’s a quasi crossposter, in that it’ll cross post a single image and none of the post’s actually content, so that’s shitty.

    Anyways: images, post them!

    Just hit the 1,000 mark today, which is great, cause instead of having the couple months I thought I would have, a confluence of events has conspired to make the deadline be this Sunday, as in 4 days from now.  The main factor?  I’m moving to a dev position in my day job, which is awesome, but it means i’m not going to have any time to work on side projects while I’m at the office.

    I’ll still be working on new features on the weekends, so those plans are still out there.

    The title is incorrect actually, as it seems like only 1-2% of reddit is still dark.  This is a clear indication of what happens to a popular site when the owners don’t take heed to the user’s concerns, something that I’ve struggled with on my own sites, and I’m only a single guy working on a site, and not a group of people with corporate overlords like Reddit.  My day job is in one of those massive corporations, so I appreciate how difficult it can get consensus on new features and how to implement them, and can really appreciate how slow that wheel of progress can turn.  On the flip side, running MCS has shown me how quickly people can blow the fuck up when a singular person like me changes something major on the site (drop down comments, ratings, mcs+, et al) so I think I’m able to see both sides of this argument, and I’m also seeing additional motivation to get some more work done on this site to make things….better.

    1. First step of course is to get the rest of these damn posts tagged.  considering I started with about 30,000 posts to tag, I’m feeling pretty good to be approaching 3,000 today.
    2. Next step is to fix the image submission and posting on mcs+.  I’ve always wanted the front page to be my own posts with posts that I’ve enjoyed from other people, the struggle has always been with how appropriate the content is and how impossible/difficult it is to get it from the sfw site to the NSFW site if someone happened to post something that had a vague hint of a female nipple (male nipples are just fine though).  We had the forums for a fair long while but the software that I was using was less than perfect and was letting all sorts of spam and virus links onto the site, and since it was being under utilized it was taken down.  I still feel there’s a slight need for that though, so that’s going to be part of the MCS+ side of things.
    3. Revenue for MCS is a difficult thing to get my head around.  Google Adsense has banned us for a while, and in the nearly 10 years the site has been up, they were the only ones that actually paid enough to make it work the time and effort, along with the reliability of not having ads with autoplay videos or viruses.  I’ve been emboldened by sites like Metafilter or news sites that have people pay for access or the ability to comment.  Back when I first introduced MCS+ it was $25 for a lifetime membership, then I kinda dropped that after 5-6 months of no purchases.  I’m not sure how it’s really going to look in the future, but that’s something that I feel strongly about: removing all ads and letting the community support the site, either through something like Patreon or purchasing monthly subscriptions for content / posting abilities, somewhere in the realms of 1-2 dollars a month at most.

    There are 3,000 posts left to tag
