I throttle bandwidth usage, not requests. It's limited to 50K/s for OmnomIRC and an additional 250K/s for Omnimaga.

Ah ok so that might explain it, right?
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Actually, OmnomIRC stopped updating because it gets confused when you click tabs really fast.

Oh ok. I wonder if that could be fixed? Sometimes we click the wrong tab or just want to check if new activity occured. :P

Darn... I hope those mods won't give too much hassle. X.x

I remember trying many and having to restore from backups because they would wreck the site. X.x

Btw I like the new quick reply style. It reminds me of Facebook but isn't too slow.


EDIT: Btw code tags select all option still works fine for me. It's Copy to clipboard that doesn't. I think clipboard should be removed altogether. People are able to just CTRL+C. It's much faster and even selecting copy through right-click isn't much slower than clicking a Flash link.

EDIT 2: OK here's a detailled opinion from me about those mods below:
Adds a ban button in posts, useful for spambots* (Installed)
Another bot tool* (Installed)
Yes, as long as they won't make it harder for legit members to register, especially if those mods relies on a third-party server that often goes down. Example: When we used RECAPTCHA, nobody could register when RECAPTCHA was down (which happened often).
Posts
Highlights in posts
Only if every bug reported in the mod comments are fixed. Also it uses GLOW apparently, which only works in IE6.

Post box resizer
Not sure if really necessary, although I guess it could be handy for some people.
Reason for edit mod
Yes but do not force people to give an edit reason. By the way there was a mod that stored previous post edits like Wikipedia does, which could be handy if the edit feature was abused, but it was SMF 2.0-only and apparently took considerable amounts of database space.
Topic Starter Mod (Shows OP by adding a blurb under their name
Good idea I guess, but make it not too intrusive.
Topic Prefixes
As long as it doesn't allow people to post color/bold/resized text in their topics and cannot be abused so a new member posts stuff like [[ABSOLUTELY FUCKING URGENT!!!]*****=====HEEEEEEEEEEELLLLLLLLLLLLPPPPPP!!!!!!!!!!!======*****, I am ok with that. It would definitively be good if it allows help topics to be marked as solved.
Topic Descriptions
Yes. I always wished we had that, like on the old board. It can help giving more clues what a topic is about.
THE DISEMVOWELER!
No please. Let's not add such stupid mod and let's moderate seriously. It might even give Omni a reputation of trolling their new members.
Remove MOVED topics from feeds
Yes as long as it doesn't remove all MOVED redirects from the forums too, so new members won't think their topic got deleted because they can no longer find it. Also make the OmnomIRC post notifier so it doesn't notify of MOVED links or at least make it so it says a topic was moved.
Quote Helper
That sounds too gimmicky IMHO. In the end it might cause more problems than it's worth and make the quote option fancier than needed, making it harder to use. If you add this, make sure it's possible to use Quote normally by default.

Instant quick reply Installed for Omni v5 theme
Yes, seems to work fine so far too. You should maybe add it to the other themes too.

Social likes
Facebook like button OR This one
Google+ +1
No. We already have social mods installed. We don't need a second FB like button. Maybe a Google Plus button could be added, though, since the AddThis mod we got seems to lack one

Code blocks
Line numbers in code blocks* (Working on updating)
Select all and copy code for code blocks* (Installed)
For the first, no if it's gonna get included in Clipboard. It's gonna make pasting code for use in program ridiculously hard. Otherwise, then go ahead. For the 2nd mod I would just disable copy to clipboard. People can just click select all then manually CTRL+C or right-click/copy.

Misc
Clean times
No, just plain useless and most people are used to reading time in digits. It's too Gimmicky IMHO.
Translator* This mod is for 2.0+, I'ma look for a mod that'll work on our current forums.
Not if it's gonna slow the site down. Also TI-BANK had this installed back in 2005 and you have no idea how terrible the translations were... not to mention it translated the entire site. If it's just a small button in posts that lets you translate from there, then fine.
Donation mod* This one is really ugly code-wise, and it's broken. I'm not going to dig through it to fix it.
No. We already have a Donation mod installed (see front page). It's built-in Ez-Portal. We don't need a second one.

All the mods I'm planning on installing are currently installed and available for the Omnimaga v5 theme. They will be available for the other themes soon.

Woo, we have a lot of mods.

I just realized that Moved topics get Re-Moved with this mod... >.<

Weird they're still intact for me ??? (on the forum, that is)

Or do you mean when you move a topic, it moves back to its original location? O.O

For some reason the "Reason for edit" doesn't show in SSL, nor is the instant quick reply instant (still refreshes the page) :\

The AJAX appears to not work in SSL. I'm not sure if it's something I can fix.

It's either requesting http:// statically on the requests, or something just doesn't like SSL.

You haven't seen 84+ OS 2.71 MP and Pokémon Red 84+SE when both topics got posted. :P
