Sometimes I think we should do some sort of drive to attract new users to the site.
Then I remember 4-ch's small userbase is what makes it great.
It definitaly should have more traffic though. BBS' are pretty cool and I think there are more people out there who would participate in a community like this... But they simply don't know about it, that's the problem.
funny how people have thought this for 8 years and nothing has changed for 8 years. the only new people who come to sites like these are people bored enough to read a list of textboards/imageboards on a wiki.
there have got to be like, less than 20 people who regularly use textboards. less than 10? they're probably all talking to each other on all these different websites without realizing it. insanity.
I miss iichan :<
I was going to say they can't be that anemic in number but then I started thinking it's probably not very far from the truth.
It's at least 30 people, though most of them only stop by maybe once a week. Maybe more, but I don't think many are active. Try checking some of the textboard related IRC channels, or the SAoVQ discord. There's a surprisingly large number of people.
The lack of activity isn't because of lack of people, but because all of those people don't post very often, and the boards they do post on are just the bigger ones like DQN or SAoVQ. I expect most people check the boards for posts worth replying to, see nothing new, and leave again. Try making some high quality threads in places where they will be seen, you'll quickly see a spike in activity as people finally have something new to reply to.
