Hi, I'm Austin. Here are a few ideas I've had for improving the site and its content. If you like them vote up, if you don't vote down. Either way, add to this list in the comments.
- Automatic dupe check. If 4chan can do this with all of its submissions, I think lolbrary can afford the CPU power to do this, and if nothing else, just do a check within the last month of content to save CPU.
- Hide negative-trending submissions on the "Fresh" page. I'd say once a submission has a score of -25, it should be hidden. Have the server check these scores every minute or so. Also create an option to unhide them (you know, for people who like shitty content).
That's it for what I think are absolute necessities. This last one could just be considered and debated.
- User classes. Users who have an average submission-rating of 100 or higher can be given a little star next to their name / submission and maybe even filters for only super-users' content.
I'll add more as I think about it. Thanks for the website, it's one of my favorites!
