For a while, the mod tools have been rightfully criticized on LynxChan. I have always put mods behind users and admins and it showed.
But now with 1.7 I looked into changing that. This version brings several improvements to moderation:
Better report queue
Now reports display the reported content, removing the need for mods to open the page to see what has been reported. But in some cases they won't even have to open the page, because now you have the option to automatically delete the reported content when you close it's report.
Along with that, two other lesser changes were made to the report queue; the link to visualize the post takes you to the moderation page and you can close multiple reports at once.
Reports are deleted when their reported content is deleted, removing cluster.
More moderation tools
Deletion by IP have been implement for board staff too, so they are able to deal with spam better without relying on the global staff.
Narrow range ips have been implemented, allowing for range bans to use 3/4 of the ip instead of 1/2, giving moderation more control over range bans.
Moderation quality of life
To make bans easier, now ban duration defaults to 5 years and global staff are not required to use the captcha for applying bans anymore.
Integration with the stopforumstam.org database filters a good portion of spam before it is even posted.
Bans no longer require an explicit expiration date, now you indicate a duration in days, months, days, hours and minutes, using any combination of units.
But not only moderation tools have been improved. A number of details have been changed for users too:
Links to download files with their original name now use the "download" property of the link tag, allowing them to just click on the link to download it and save bandwidth if they had already opened the file.
Extensions have been re-introduced to files.
Deletion now tells the user how many threads and posts have been deleted instead of just giving back a success message.
Ids have their background colored.
New threads only give a response after their page have been created, eliminating the 404 after creating a thread.
Added a thread creation form to the catalog.
TOR posting settings have been changed, allowing site admins to require only TOR users to use the block bypass while allowing them to post files.
And some general improvements were made to site administration features:
Added a setting that control the maximum length of posted messages.
Board owners can turn their boards into textboards.
Now its possible to tell the engine to use ffmpeg to generate gif thumbnails for improved performance at the cost of quality.
Flags now have a class added to it when they are location flags, allowing custom board css to make specific changes to specific location flags.
Added a feature that allows to configure how long ips are stored on the posts.
HTML generation optimized with individual HTML caches.
Captchas no longer require a temporary file written to disk.
Temporary directory is now created automatically if possible.
This update will enter beta on October first and will be released 45 days later.

I don't intend to have an active chan.
This site is only so people can see the engine and I will shut it down once the engine is widespread.
