Floens made a comment 17 hours ago about his appeals and this is what it said:
"I have an update on the appeal. It was denied but they gave me some valuable feedback (or, the issue was just what I thought.)
See as requested in#124and added in22ace00I added in two new default boards and shuffled all of them so that /g/ wasn't always at the top. Clover requires hardcoding some boards because otherwise the board list is empty while Clover is waiting for the api response. This is only done when you launch Clover for the first time. So after that update instead of always having the following order: /g/, /v/, /a/, /co/, /int/, it randomized the order of these 7: /g/, /v/, /a/, /co/, /int/, /sp/, /tv/.
Clover automatically loads the first board in the board list on startup. Instead of always presenting /g/ first it presented one of these /g/, /v/, /a/, /co/, /int/, /sp/, /tv/ (because it was now shuffled). Now I did not put much thought in it, but /a/ isn't the most sfw board there is, even when it's a blue board. So there was a 1 in 7 change of /a/ winding up at the top of the board list and getting automatically loaded. And that was when the fun started. After uploading a new beta version this was probably the case and Clover got suspended. They denied my appeal with the following reason: "Your app depicts images of anime characters in sexually suggestive poses which is considered sexually explicit content." So /a/ was indeed the culprit.
Clover now has more safe boards as default and doesn't automatically add any boards anymore. /a/ and some other boards are now marked as a nsfw boards, so you won't even see a drop down for it."
"Now you could say that every browser or reddit app should also be banned from the Play Store because you can browse nsfw material with them. But the problem is that Clover presented /a/ without any searching for nsfw material. It's fine if you make the user search for nsfw material if they know the url/board code/subreddit name, but don't present it without any action.
Even Google Play recommends just uploading a new version with another package name and that's what I'm going to do. It's a shame that I can't update the 260k current users to the new version, but I hope the word will spread of the new package name. I'll give another update when I've uploaded it."
Based Floens. 2.0 looks and feels sick on my Moto G
I prefer board mode+ tomorrow theme
Also 2.1.2 fixed the issues with 2.0
No /g/ has always been the default board, the beta he uploaded had a randomizer for clean installs that chose one of 7 "sfw" boards, and /a/ isn't very sfw
When play store reviewed it, the die landed on /a/ and the lewd anime girls were too much for Google
If you want you can still blame /g/ because they are the ones that requested this change (since /g/ was default board they claimed it brought too many normies to this autistic playground)
/g/ could have also been the culprit if he never switched to /a/ since desktop threads (always on the front page, they're made before the old ones hit the bump limit) tend to fill with autistic morons that think "anime on an anime website" means "graphic lolicon videos"
>FOSStards will NEVER know what it feels like to use a decent chan client
/a/ here, you're welcome
without clover you guys will have less crossboarders
Nah. If you were here long enough you'd know 4chan as a whole is NSFW at all times and a board being blue does not mean that it is SFW or acceptable for those under 18. It only means that posting explicit porn is a bannable offense. Suggestive imagery and NSFW dialogue is posted all the time on pretty much all boards. Your employer will have enough material to justify firing you with based on the conversations that occur in the average thread alone.
Use common sense, anon. Just because 4chan says a board is SFW does not mean it's Safe to view on the job. SFW is merely a convenient way of saying "there are a few extra rules to follow here."
I mean shit, did you think the promotions meme was supposed to be a funny joke people told because they were happy to get fired? It's a shot at people stupid enough to be browsing 4chan at work in the first place.
You seen to think sfw still solely refers to it's literally translation
Things have changed, sfw is well understood on the internet to be pg13 content at worst
Literal loligagging is not considered sfw in any sense and is bannable on sfw boards
Yet still idiots in desktop threads and /a/ don't seem to understand that
Facebook isn't even safe for work solely because you are supposed to be working while at work, but it is still understood to be work safe
Is there a problem with saying "these sites are not for porn?"
I agree that the term nsfw is terrible, and even sites like /g/ should not be browsed on work, but right now the term nsfw means that it is filled with porn.
>/a/ was never default board
>you ruined everything /a/!
as if you retards are the one to talk , when this shit board along with /v/ gets spammed with nigger porn every now and then
Why should it be nsfw exactly?
Genuinely curious why would you think retard ass neckbeards spamming some lolis and muuuuh dick comments all day is valuable or interesting to read.
Ironically the only people shitting up /a/ and posting 90% of nsfw content come from /a/
notice how its always lolicon doujins, hentai games or picture and JAV.
Those porn threads you speak about, those are made by ruggarell.
Another /a/ fag.
No matter how you look at it /a/ is always the problem all this because of incompetent mods allowing lewdfagging everywhere.
Its now basically alright to do so and object once you'll have that one obnoxious faggot to repeat the 1000th hello ledit ebin maymay
the point is you shouldn't expect to not see any cocks even if you are on a "sfw" board.
Anyone here can post, there's no validation to check the post content before it's made.
I don't see how being on a blue board makes you feel safe from all content that's NSFW, when just earlier today /v/ had a nigger porn thread that was still alive after 200 replies.
Have you even seen what kind of OP pictures /hgg/ sometimes has? It's the same shit you people complain about when mentioning "/a/ lewdposting".
Not to mention that you people are complaining about google removing something off the playstore, but at the same time keep saying "use fdroid or github"
Fdroid people and Google play people are 2 different sets of people
Also there is no validation for Facebook before it's posted either and posting lewd content on Facebook is also bannable
No, but if Facebook was a relatively new thing and the first thing that the first reviewer saw is cp then you could expect it to be taken down by Google as well
And who would Facebook be mad at? The one fucker who wasn't following the rules and lewdposting
And /a/ is that hive of villainy that should just be napalmed
>set /g/ to default board
>reviewer decides to check out app
>nigger porn thread with 200+ replies, no mods in sight
>google takes it down
just remove /a/, who gives a fuck, I'm certainly not that retarded to not know how to add boards myself
>shitting up /v/
as if you need help with that,
there was no reason to change the order to randomization, it makes absolutely no difference since you can edit the boards yourself, so it's basically valid for the first run
Problem seems that mods are ok with it.
Shitposters and spammer will always be here.
Lewdposting is alright for everyone even though there is a containment board for it.
When I go to /v/ to talk about a game in particular I don't want to see none of these douchebags posting about their dick status, or how aroused they are.
Virgins need to shut up.
I've never understood this about 4chanx fags and specially-designed-mobile-client browsers. What functionality do you need on 4chan that the browser does not support?
Plus you can use CSS on the base site which makes it infinitely better in every context.
>there's people trying to blame /a/ without a hint of irony
>Your app depicts images of anime characters in sexually suggestive poses which is considered sexually explicit content."
>sexually suggestive poses
The real problem is our walled garden robot overlord soccer mom computer god. Fuck Google.
Well for one, on threads that are image/webm based like on porn boards, I just click 1 image and I can swipe left and right to browse the images quickly, that by itself is infinitely better than browser.
I can download all images in 1 press, I can share the images with my wife with 2 presses, it keeps all of my threads pinned nicely in a way I can see them all when I want to without having to scroll through multiple tabs
I even can get notifications when someone responds directly
It makes the experience significantly better
What makes me mad is that there was a whole thread on reddit about this. What the fuck? Why does reddit care? This is our issue, not theirs, can't they just fuck off to their latest Bernie Sanders circlejerk?
I want reddit to fuck off and die in their own ditch.
so uh what android app do i use to browse 4chin now?
>Clover requires hardcoding some boards because otherwise the board list is empty while Clover is waiting for the api response.
Bullshit. Idiots who are scared of seeing an empty list and/or don't know how to configure the default board list on their own should not be allowed to use the internet. It's an IQ test to filter out retards. A default list just enables low-effort shitposters.
Google is doing 4chan a favor banning the app. Hiroyuki should ban Clover from here until Floens gets rid of the default board list.
>Even Google Play recommends just uploading a new version with another package name and that's what I'm going to do. It's a shame that I can't update the 260k current users to the new version, but I hope the word will spread of the new package name. I'll give another update when I've uploaded it."
Does that mean the new Clover won't be called Clover anymore?
but anon, we need Clover to be as user friendly as the reddit apps, to attract more people!
yea and then he'll need to ask for the removal of the Fdroid repo and add a new one there too
>include /pol/ in default boards list
>offend all Jews at the Google play store
>get burned at the stake for intolerance
Did you even read the thread? I bet you failed the reading comp part of your ACT
