I have a paper I really, really, really, need to get done tonight. I find I’m procrastinating and that the BBS has become a very effective tool for that. Can I please be banned until this time tomorrow? Whaddaya say, @Falcor ? Hungry? Feeling like flexing the banmuscles?
Can’t you find something offensive you can do that would justify a 24hr ban?
(But not so bad you get a 250 year one)
Violet Blue is my homegirl.
I too lack self-discipline in this regard.
@codinghorror: how feasible would it be to add a “self-ban” feature where users could voluntarily block themselves for a set amount of time?
Ooh, can we have badges?
You’ll go blind!
(or grow hair on your clicky-finger)
24 hours, your wish is my command. Don’t say I never did anything for you.
How did that taste?
If you use Chrome, you could try StayFocusd in lieu of a ban. (I’ve also got a paper due tomorrow, so I should probably remove myself this site for the next day or so). Possible suitably mild offences:
- Impersonating a level 3 commenter
- Posting ASCII pictures
- Derailing a 4 day old thread
This may need some calibration, since admitting trollery warrants a 274 year ban. We want exactly one day.
I installed something like that once. I just started using a different browser while the plugin was blocking where I wanted to go.
Yeah, I just use my phone.
Thank you. You are a scholar and a not-so-gentledragon.
Be sure to check the setting “Prevent access to options for this block set at times when these sites are blocked.”
I literally was just adjusting my settings on the thing. I too, must recommend it.
Guys if any of you are Mac users you all need some bloody SelfControl.
Different browsers won’t work, even uninstalling the app won’t work. Unfortunately I don’t think it comes in Android, iOS or Windows…
