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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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 now only 98 days remaining until my self imposed deadline, with just 3000 left to tag, I’ll need to do 30.612 posts per day to be done in time.
So close. going to take the weekend off from tagging though, I just bought an xbox one. add me if you’d like: tgiokdi I think I’m mostly going to be playing around in the MC Collection.Site News on June 29th, 2015 by tiki god | Report This Post | Add to favorites
With 102 days remaining, there are 4000 posts left to tag, which means I’ll need to do at least 39.216 posts per day to be done in time. On my off time, I’m working on the MCS Plus transition, but I need your help! navigate your sweet ass over to mcs plus and click on the submit link, it’s not less confusing and should be easier for you to process. Just click on MCS+ in the header.
There’s still a couple things for me to do over there though, primarily change the way the posts/images are displayed, then add in some code to cross post just images or entire posts over to the main sites.
Please note, anything you post on PLUS will be shown on that site immediately and makes it eligible to be posted to www or nsfw.Site News on June 25th, 2015 by tiki god | Report This Post | Add to favorites
Sekindo has informed me that MCS has been removed from their advertising platform, which is a shame, as they were actually pretty responsive to problems. That leaves only project wonderful, SwitchAds and SocialRealty, none of which are performing all too well and (other than PW) don’t respond to issues very quickly. PW is actually pretty wonderful, except there’s no revenue there anymore.
So, I’m going to work on something else to keep the servers warm. First step: MCS+ is getting a complete overhaul of what it is and what it does and who can do what it is when done. The first step is to change the link in the header from the old mcs+ page to the newer subdomain that’s going to function as a wildwest that permits literally anything to be posted.
Eventually that subdomain is going to look a fair bit different, but for now I want to figure out the posting situation, then figure out how to repost images from PLUS to WWW
Those of you with MCS+, could you please login and try to post to mcs+? Report back here. Don’t use the submission engine, use the wordpress new post, and be sure you’re on plus.myconfinedspace.com

There are 129 days remaining until my deadline, and with only 7,000 posts left, I’ll need to do 54.264 posts per day to be done in time. There was literally nothing interesting in this last 1,000 posts that I tagged. It was mind numbing and stupid, but now I’m 1,000 posts closer to zero.
Besides doing this I’ve been playing through Dead Island, which was one heck of a game, I ended up really enjoying it, except for that stupid end battle. that was dumb.

With only 158 days remaining till my deadline, there are now only 9,000 posts left to tag. This means I’ll need to do on average 56.962 posts per day to get the project done in time. I’m on track to have it completed, but ugh. so many posts left, my mind is going numb.
Just got to early 2011 when Egypt was self immolating and the Arab Spring was kicking off. What a crazy time! This is also when Casemods permanently left the site to parts unknown, though I still see him from time to time on Steam playing the same games he’s always played.
Speaking of 2011 though, this is also around the time that the MCS chat room was set up, which is an IRC channel that me and one other person idle in all day long. If you’re working in a call center like yours truly, feel free to add the channel, I drop links in there to humorous things well before they show up in MCS, and you’ll get to hear my latest complaints about the socio-economic ruins of our various countries (yay!).Site News on April 29th, 2015 by tiki god | Report This Post | Add to favorites

Tags: Advertisements, NeSFW
MCS is teaming up with a new site that’s got some relatively interesting content, it’s obviously NSFW, so if you click on it, you’re going to see porn. They’re essentially exactly like the Humble Bundle, but with porn instead of video games/ebooks. I’ll be posting their ads to the front page because that’s where the primarily traffic is, so if it doesn’t interest you, please just keep scrolling, if it does interest you, MCS gets a tiny kick back and they donate the majority of the proceeds to charities of different flavors. This month’s is supporting The National Coalition for Sexual Freedom. Click the more tag below to see the full ad:

Take a picture of what you drink and submit it, tag it “MCS Alcohol“.
Points for anyone that gets a picture of a beautiful woman with the drink.
edit: you guy suck at either drinking or taking pictures. where are the pictures gorram it
edit2: something changed around here, let me know if you see anything obviously broken.
Edit 3: Turns out that the new template I spent a couple hours on doesn’t work at ALL without JS enabled on the site, which is friggin rediculous. I’ve abandonded my plans to use that theme at all, so I’m pretty sure it’s rotten to the core. I’m going to focus on just modifying the existing theme to be responsive. Don’t worry though, I won’t be doing this on a live site though.

Just a few short 7 months ago there were 30,922 untagged posts on mcs, I’ve reduced that number down to 15,755.
here’s some brief stats on this personal project of mine:
There are 232 days remaining until my goal of getting these done by the 10 year anniversary of MCS, which means I’ll need to do 67.909 posts per day to be done in time.

You should see the admin bar along the top of the site if you’re logged in, I had disabled it a long while ago because it was just useless fluff that didn’t so anything, but now it has a comment reply notification, so you’ll get a visual heads up that someone has replied to one of your posts or comments.
