Big Idea (9)

1 Name: kolyma : 2021-04-06 11:05 ID:EKVUUARn

What if the [bracketed words] in thread titles were given a different color or random colors from a specific pallet? could be cute

2 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2021-04-06 13:51 ID:Heaven

I think this idea is a little too big for 4-ch.

3 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2021-04-06 16:10 ID:Heaven

As gay and useless as coloring IDs.

4 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2021-04-06 18:12 ID:Heaven

There was also some guy who suggested sortable subback.html columns; all of these would be great features for a KarehaX userscript or addon.

5 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2021-04-06 22:40 ID:Heaven

You could easily make that work server-side without javascript.
Wait, Kareha uses SQL, right??

6 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2021-04-07 07:25 ID:Heaven

Nope, only Wakaba does.

7 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2021-04-07 17:24 ID:JnVttwua

Surely other textboard software also uses SQL.

[Suggestions] [Feedback] New new management [Exciting!] (163)

1 Name: ssz!8KKxaxpAFg (Admin) : 2020-10-06 15:42 ID:muTytuBI

BPS has passed the site on to me, as you might have seen. Please use this thread for...

  • reporting anything that seems to be broken
  • any feature requests or other suggestions you might have
  • feedback for my own (and others') proposals and ideas

I'm also going to use this thread as an update log, for convenience.

For anything else, you can reach me over IRC (on #4-ch) or email (TBA).

Is there no archive for expired /img/ threads?

155 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2021-03-31 00:02 ID:Heaven

Hi admin, not directly related to the site, but I thought I'd bring this to your attention in case you don't regularly browse every board. It should be an easy request for you to fulfill.
(I'm not OP of the linked thread, just trying to be helpful)

Does anyone know where to find this video? (2)

1 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2021-04-02 02:48 ID:annsaQXu

It's the video that starts off as a normal anime, with two girls sitting in a subway train, but midway through their conversation the girl on the left starts fragmenting .mkv style and the girl on the right actually takes notice. Several google searches and browses through online communities have gotten me nowhere on this subject. If there's a series behind this, links to that would also be appreciated. Thanks.

Would admin consider allowing paid banner ads to run on some boards? (13)

1 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2021-03-28 18:37 ID:cJFjFtA7

not like juicy ads or some other company, but users could pay to put ads up

4 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2021-03-30 01:46 ID:yBrtj5qY

Well, no, if they can help to keep the site alive.

5 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2021-03-30 09:55 ID:0lRb17Fo

Generally I agree with >>2. I don't think the site is having trouble being kept alive, seeing as it isn't currently accepting donations.
That said, I'm not particularly opposed to adverts if they are within the relevancy of the BBS (like 6ch or another board, even though I probably won't use anywhere else). If they are small banners like the board headings here and are 4-ch focused (with AA, for example) they might even be welcome.

6 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2021-03-30 10:15 ID:Heaven

if it went for it straight after losing the old google ads it might work, but after this long without any banner ads it would just look jarring

7 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2021-03-30 13:11 ID:Heaven

I would rather the majority of web sites die if it means being rid of the scumfuck advertising industry.

custom banner ads that can be bought by the community is pretty rad. Integrated Facebook/Google/Amazon or any other company is cancer.

31 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2021-03-26 17:32 ID:eqp+Iqyb

In terms of timeline of the wider events that led to the aforementioned boom, that thread would have largely preceded it. I am not claiming such things didn't exist, I am claiming that they were previously much less common and popular than they are today, which is an important distinction. Citing this as a refutation of my point demonstrates a lack of understanding on why I oppose the OP to such an extreme degree in the first place. I'll say it as many times as necessary, I am interested in preservation and not change.

Again, it seems like your deliberately trying to manipulate what is being said by playing games with the scope of the argument. The "people" I refer to are those who go from place to place spreading their ideology. Their M.O. is typically to embed themselves somewhere, complain that the place is intolerant or "ist" or "phobic" etc., attack the original members as being so as well, and eventually destroy it through a combination of alienating the userbase and restricting what is allowed to be said to an extreme degree that the intended topic for the entire site is all but lost. They then leave and repeat the process for the next place. It's been described as a sort of social cancer, but I prefer to think of it as a weaponized version of "death of a hobby", if you've seen that little comic.

I wouldn't know why people start those sorts of threads, I am not them, and as such any explanation I can provide would be little more than a guess.

If it's just some guy asking for feedback on his site and it's not copy-pasted over every board, it's not really an issue.

5 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2021-03-26 13:52 ID:kHitWpzI

Well yes, but it would be troblesome if bad advertising ruin the site.

6 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2021-03-26 18:46 ID:CTv28Jz4

Blatant advertising should be a rule breaker, yes. If some dude has a post log of 0 posts and his first post is just "come check out my VIP quality BBS!" that should be instant ban. If it's some regular posting in general or net or something and wants feedback on their website and incorporates it into a discussion, I think that's reasonable.

Board archival and merge thread (71)

1 Name: ssz!8KKxaxpAFg (Admin) : 2021-02-11 20:26 ID:uixywlqQ This thread was NOT merged from the former Requests (/req/) board; this is just a dummy message. You can view the board archive here, however.

In its own separate thread for convenience!
There are two main elements to this:

1: Archiving old threads
To clean the boards up a little bit, and to marginally lighten the load on Kareha, the plan is to move all threads that have not seen any activity for the past ~8 years (half the age of this site) to the archive. Maybe with the exception of DQN which can get an earlier cutoff date (or none at all), and I'm definitely doing this for Romance which has over two thousand (!) unarchived threads.

2: Merging boards
This has been a recurring topic for some time, and I think it's about time something be done about it. So as not to have a bunch of barely active boards on the boardlist, and to make the site slightly tidier (and more convenient to moderate), it seems prudent to merge some of the less active boards and the ones that have overlapping themes. My proposal is as follows:

  • General

  • Should be around 400×120px
  • JPG, PNG or GIF

Upload your images on a stable filehost or on the imageboard, then link it here. If there are multiple submissions for the same board, we'll have a vote over it.

>>70 considering their current lack of header images is a direct result of the board merge it's plenty relevant. at least for the first two boards.
