I visit this website about twice annually out of curiosity.

I've never really known what to do here because it seems like there's no one here.

We should have less boards. The only board that gets any traffic, any how, is DQN.

if only rapidly slowing down imageboards like 7chan would listen to this advice aswell.

We can bring this entire website down to 2-3 boards.

I like the other boards though. Even though it's not used often, I like the idea of having a "Romance" or "Personal Issues" board.

>We can bring this entire website down to 2-3 boards.

Terrible idea. Terrible, terrible idea. Just in general.

Imagine how this place would be if DQN was the only board. (So what if it is....- You catch my drift.)

Bummer at the absolute snails pace the last several years though.
I'll try posting more.

>>15
I understand what you mean, but what if we (and by "we", I of course mean squeaks or shii or whoever runs this forum now) merge the boards whose topics overlap each other. For example, what distinguishes net culture from Internet addicts? And what distinguishes the content on Internet addicts with that of general. Food and fashion make more sense being topics or running threads on the very inactive hobbies board, which pretty much consists of, "I need a new hobby". I get the Japanese board, but do we really need a Nordic board separate from languages?

If we didn't have a separate Nordic board, those dirty swedes might start interfering and mucking around with the rest of us.

18 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2015-03-17 04:50 ID:Mq3n4JMk

The only problem with the separate boards is I'm too lazy to check them all to look for new posts. So I tend to avoid the ones i'm less interested in. Sorry all you News boards.

In the near future I shall make a global feed for new posts made across the entire site. Possibly I will allow the option to filter out certain boards (in particular DQN, since it is the most active). If people are sufficiently aware of this new feature (new? shock!), it may begin to address the problem you are describing.

In terms of removing boards, I really have to side with >>15 on this one. I do not know if this is simply out of nostalgia, stubbornness, or whatever, but it is a very strong feeling. Having said that, I really want to hear all arguments to the contrary.

22 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2015-05-02 04:24 ID:NzGOQYqo

>>21 I know how you feel, based out of nostalgia, but at the moment there are too many boards. For example, Anime and Manga can easily be put together. I can't say whether any of the users of /manga/ use /anime/ as well, but I'd imagine that they do. One of the biggest things it seems in getting more people on boards and on the site is to make it seem like there is more discussion going on. The last post on Manga was in march, and the last post on anime was today, by me. Romance and Personal could easily be merged into one board, so could Tech Support and Programming, Politics and Debate (they go hand in hand), Fashion, Food and Hobbies could just be merged into a Daily Life board. I think that textboards never really got their fair shot in the west, but I've always loved the concept, I used to post on world2ch a LONG time ago but moved to imageboards. Now that imageboards are completely un-saveable, I think that textboards are a good possibility. That's just me, however.

Other chans already have a romance and personal issues board.

It's called /r9k/

24 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2015-05-04 18:54 ID:sI0/GJA+

>>23
/r9k/ always revolves around not having a gf and self-loathing.
Have you seen the Personal Issues board? It's nothing like the /r9k/'s I've seen before.

>>22
I don't think all of those boards should be merged. but I do agree with manga & anime being together. Currently, it feels like its splitting content thats very similar.

>>21
cool. I do check my rss reader a lot more than I do this site.

26 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2015-05-05 04:16 ID:uUZrEGRG

Yeah, /r9k/ is fantastic, though, if you ignore all the >tfw no gf stuff.

Personal Issues is nothing like that. No self loathing, but also no good OC.

Uh, way off track here guys..... just noting that.

I still stand by my original position of basically not changing the site in any way. It's lasted thus long.

What we need is less posters. More moderators. Mark my words.

34 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2015-06-13 14:25 ID:uUZrEGRG

>>33
I disagree about the posters/moderators.
I would love to have a mainstream English textboard like Japan has. 8chan/4chan are cancerous because at it's core are "le maymays" and they never breed any meaningful discussion, especially 8chan. A popular general-purpose discussion textboard would coexist with reddit and forums, and get rid of comment sections on blogs and news sites and such.
So I actually think this place needs to be shilled hard.

Searching for 「anonymous discussion forum」 on startpage (which partially gets its results from google), wakaba.c3.cx/shii/shiichan appears on page 3. And nothing more except a 4chan mention up to 10.

I don't know, maybe if we shilled the results hard..

Also, if we got whoever runs 4chan now to put a link to 4-ch, that would send more ppl this way. Not an advertisement and not paid, but a link.

I imagine they don't like the idea of of textboards or other sites, though.

Another way would be to contact some mainstream news outlet and propose them to make an article about textboards and 4-ch like a sort of english 2ch.

49 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2015-09-07 18:06 ID:nF6MCbc8

>>48
Has a major news outlet even mentioned 2ch? The only ones I can find are some Japanese sites and fucking Kotaku, so I doubt our chances of getting publicity like that are very high.

And even if a major news site did do a story on 2ch, they'd probably decry it and all of it's spinoffs as sites for pedophile-rapist-murderers because they're dumb as fuck and need pageviews.

/polpol/ and /32/ are some of the better boards on 8chan (I'm slightly suspicious of the moderation of /polpol/ though)
maybe we could subtly advertise there by mentioning 4-ch in a discussion (this is how /32/ is advertised)

57 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2015-09-10 11:26 ID:lrwiBx6b

Casually mentioning it on slow 8ch/4chan boards might work. On /qa/, one of the less populated boards on 4chan, I usually mention it in "Post what other sites you frequent?" Threads. I've also posted it on /txt/ on 8ch.

59 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2015-09-11 04:04 ID:yjV6i855

Why advertise it? It's not like that ever endures. They'll visit for the novelty then leave, because they're too image-oriented.

The fact is that if someone takes up an interest textboard culture, no matter what they do, they're most likely to visit this site first, so why not just let it be? Don't try to impose your interests on others.

You should, because they're going to spam the front page with stuff like "I'm from 8ch, and what is this site?" rather than actually contribute discussion.
Or, more likely, they're going to post on DQN, deteriorating the quality of what's all ready a very low-quality board.

There is no particular reason. I was just idly toying with the idea for some time and decided to give it a go.

I've made a newspost concerning it now, as well as an invitation for any kind of feedback on this and other matters. As usual the best place to voice any kind of concern is on /req/.

I appreciate that this website moves slowly in more ways than just frequency of posts, and accordingly that some people may be resistant to this kind of change. (Actually, to be honest, it is way more active than people often give it credit for. The problem is that it is concentrated to maybe 3-4 boards in total.)

Anyways, thanks for your concern. Let me know your thoughts!
