How to start a great new lively textboard bbs? (24)

1 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2015-04-28 02:09 ID:ZP+XC1bY

I would like to create a great new BBS which gets a lot of posts every day, and everyone loves to visit it.

Thanks for you.

You should use iyagi-bbs and then spam it on all the other small imageboard sites

the nice thing about kareha is that it is simple and easy to set up, so if the mods on your favorite textboard consider your "free speech" as spam, then you can just start your own and build your own community.
but having guidelines around posting behavior is important unless you want your board to become shit. like ok, if you wanna be racist thats cool, just don't spam it. ruins the discussion.

21 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2020-05-15 03:51 ID:Heaven

I wish there were more textboard software, other than the already known scripts (e.g. Kareha, Tablecat, Emanon, Weabot, etc.).

What's your least favorite website (41)

1 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2019-04-04 02:49 ID:yAJllslA

What site do you hate the most? What site looks the worst, doesn't work, or just has fallen in quality over the years?

32 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2020-06-14 12:48 ID:3dmUgKsg

Honestly 'the worst site ever' would be some half finished project by a board teen or some sketchy site made to only datamine not one of these big sites.

My popular worst site ever would be Discord. Personal vendetta because all artist critique groups moved on there and the site sucks for that. It's impossible to have a 1 on 1 conversation about art when any rando can jump into the server and derail it. Also I use discord then abandon it a lot so I need to make a lot of new accounts. That doesn't sound bad, but they require a new email, that can't be a throwaway or old one, every time and some times they ask for a phone number.
>>8
It also sucks when people use social media as their platform because they think it can mean they can post stuff besides art. They can do whatever they want, but I hate it when I have to scroll past 20 meme repost for one doodle.

33 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2020-06-19 22:46 ID:e99lLOpN

Any site where users can create and moderate their own boards (reddit, 8ch/kun, etc). I don't think people realize just how much of a misfeature it is. You almost always end up with 15 boards dedicated to the same subject, each with a different take on it.

You're not going to have a board for politics, you're going to have a board for liberals, a board for conservatives, a board for communists, a board for anarchists, and a zillion other boards where you can go to avoid interacting with people you disagree with.

Those are good, nowadays the idea of owning a website on your own is a completely foreign concept and anything that does come up just requires some bootstrap template or site builder.
Even if its dumb and something that the teen will forget about or look back on with mild embarrassment, there should be more of those sites around.

I don't really think that is a problem inherent to user board creation. The problem is that they allow infinite user board creation instead of limiting it.

If the website limited the max amount of boards that can be made and pruned crappy ones then you wouldn't get splintering like you do in 8chan and reddit.

wikia is FANDOM now. Remember that. If you started making a wikia website about history of your town or something like that, it will now be FANDOM, with big ads to Superman or Boku no hero academia everywhere.
And there are no alternatives. Gamepedia is FANDOM too. The only wikis that are not FANDOM are self-designed and self-hosted.

As others have mentioned FANDOM is straight up super shitty, it looks awful, filled with ads, and worst of all, it buries the good non-FANDOM wikis due to SEO bullshit.
Nexus Mods and mugenarchive also come to mind as fucking garbage.
And fuck Discord for those people that host downloads on it like ygo percy.

SEO = scum (5)

1 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2009-08-11 16:31 ID:jzch7MA2

or is it just me?

Search algorithms are designed to return the most relevant results to a user's query. Which is generally a good thing, a positive service they provide to internet users (of course while making some money for themselves in the process)

Search engine "optimisation" exists only to subvert that process and return your site higher than anyone else's, regardless of how irrelevant it probably is. I'm always put off a site when I see visible signs of this practice; ie user-unfriendly URLs with long strings of keywords in them, page titles with same, semi-hidden pages bearing strangely-worded paragraphs and so on. As well as marking them out as a user of what I believe to be an unethical marketing technique, it just looks unprofessional - like businesses that name themselves AAAAAAAAAAAAAAJohn's Used Cars to be first in the phonebook.

2 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2009-09-21 13:21 ID:9mpPyo7g

SEO's are scum. SEOs are no different than Nigerian scammers or fucknoids who sent out mass spam emails.

>>3
What is your understanding of a "better search engine" I wonder, and what adaption does it have to reality? That is, which search engine would you say is "good enough" (for some value to be enough)? If the answers google, read this: Google recently has changed its search engine to help wikipedia. Wikipedia has a major bandwidth problem and it strives to keep it low, that's why there's the "star" feature which makes an article read only for most users. These stars are given based on bandwidth consumption for the particular article (notice the calculations are more sophisicated than the sum of bytes transfered, since that'd mean a long article or an article with lots of media would rank high much easier than corresponding short one). If the article gets visited a lot, then it gets the star. Also, don't forget that Wikipedia does not stand alone on the matter of its existence, else it'd be dead time ago. Another problem of Wikipedia is that it got linked too much - simply too many people reference Wikipedia. Google ranked it higher than any other link in most results for which there was an article for it. That of course is something good, because wikipedia articles are up to par (for NON-technical endeavors). But google is massive, and wikipedia had to look for a way to free itself from such heavy weight put on its shoulders by google. The contract roughly was:
Articles which address diachronic concepts or factualities are still ranked on top; (th. Wikipedia dominates the academia using google), Therefore, articles which are regularly changed (in content, not appearance), such as present pseudo-historic commentary, trends, fashion, products, etc get a lower ranking; in particularly, there's a minimum 2 ranks distance (wikipedia is bound to the third position or lower, depending on its relevance to the query and of course the competitor websites which demand a place higher than WK), and other websites get to have their content 'highlighted'. That pleases both Wikipedia and everyone who was unpleased with the mass of Wikipedia (every advertising agency, even google). So you can see how this occured. Google became biased, more than it was before, if any. Lo - search engines return scrambled information: you have to fiddle through it with some criteria and judge.

You probably noticed this by now, but you were definitely onto something with this observation! From the organization's about page

>Our Army [USSR] is a virtual combat unit that unites Russian-speaking players of ArmA 3, having a role-playing aspect of a virtual army organization built on the principles of military discipline and behavior on a voluntary but mandatory basis, with the purpose of communication and team games in a cohesive team.
>The basis on which it was formed ON [USSR] in 2001 was the tactical simulator Operation Flashpoint (OFP). It transported us to the era of confrontation between the USSR and the United States, the so-called Cold war, in 1985, when according to the plot, the world was again on the verge of war.

One certainly has to admire the dedication to authenticity, albeit a type of authenticity that has been expressed in a medium that would not manifest itself until a decade following the official dissolution of the Soviet Union itself!

Sorry to spoil your fun there, but the .su domain was made for Western DNS register with the goal of making top-level domains for all countries present at the time. I believe noone in the USSR, not even military or technology institutes had been connected to the Internet.

Unless you just refer to plain existence of .su domain. Well, it's there isn't it. Just like all the top-level domains owned by corps for advertising themselves. Once I realized how many TLDs are out there, .su lost it's charm to me.

It's seriously something equivalent to a massive blow in the face seeing a thread about this, especially one made back in 2007.

I'm young as hell, and I've been around on the internet for a terrible amount of time for my age. I've been reflecting on it; the seeping influence of what used to be 'niche' internet subcultures is now the basis of most every student's life.

Even the hoodlums and crackheads are exposed to this, entrenched or at the very least acknowledges this, and the area I attend mostly consists of low-income minorities.

>I think this is dangerous because it can lead people to be lazy in their critical thinking. i.e. "Why is that like that?" "Because meme"

I can't even decide on whether or not any of this is for the better or worse. I really fucking can't.
As with everything else in life, it all comes down to sheer complexity--the myriad of variables that create a myriad of results, whether good or bad.
It's not like everybody's unable to survive without their sanity intact or anything. The one good thing that's come out of this is the sheer amount of power you have over yourself, but, still, this is also boils down to option.
Also, results drastically differ upon region to region. Hell, even from school to school. The district next to mine is the complete fucking opposite to everything here. The schools there are absolutely chaotic and would cause any poor soul attending to become a shell of a human automatically. Then there's the district above us, who have almost nothing going on despite being a major metropolitan area.
Reality comes with a lot of surprises.

I've used net speak irl, but it's always been on reflex. I've said pic related during a presentation and called something based on reflex once or twice, privately though.

The worst net speak irl I've seen is politics. My college has speeches and every few a freshman, who's obviously got all their info from twitter/Youtube ranters, tries to debate people with degrees and years of experience in their field. They use meme speak only their online groups use, which is disrespected every were else, and they always start with loaded questions.

It's hard because you are stuck with stale netspeak.
I don't have to use 'based' irl since English is not my language, but any netspeak word can be traced back in its meaning and origin and translated to something else. Of course, some of the value the word carries is lost this way.

The bad part is the lazy attitude of replacing whole sentences with e.g. "that feel when" + insert meme I see adult people use.

Websites marking mp4's as gifs (6)

1 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2019-07-06 22:16 ID:tf9oKRFh

Why is it such common trend for websites to supply a collection of "gifs" that are actually just silent videos on repeat? Shit like tenor, giphy's gifv format, among other things. Why do they bother? All it does it make the user more inconvenienced when finding what they want. Why not just say what it is?
Whenever I'm looking for something now I instinctively ignore sites like gfycat because they've only given out pseudo-gifs for so long. It's annoying.

2 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2019-07-07 09:22 ID:zGdFLI77

GIF compression is horrible and so is the quality (mainly due to the 256 color limitation.)

But if you prefer downloading 10mb of data to watch a video that looks like an PlayStation game FMV from 1995, good for you.

Gifs take up more space and provide inferior results. It's an obsolete format with tons of baggage from when they were created.

that only explains why .mp4s have displaced .gifs, it doesn't explain why websites mark .mp4s as .gifs rather than just serving you an .mp4 file

Probably because the end-user is only familiar with "gif" and not with "mp4." Alternatively these services might have existed before the widespread rollout of webm/mp4 support in browsers and they wanted to preserve the existing endpoints while still reaping the benefits of reduced bandwidth usage.

By the way it used to be possible to coax gyfcat into giving you a true gif by using "giant.gyfcat" or some other url tweak, but they may have disabled this workaround.
