In my worthless opinion, yes. This site shouldnt just become a giant billboard

I think they can be funny in moderation.

4 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2021-03-25 11:41 ID:Heaven

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.

7 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2021-10-19 02:31 ID:w5PgkKzK

What exactly do you mean by advertising? I see this term abused. "Someone I don't like made a project they want to share" is called "advertising" just as much as the automated spam for penis enlargement pills and such. You need to have a stricter definition of what you want to be forbidden before you ask us if we want to forbid it. I don't like vague rules.

"I know it when I see it!" is NOT justice.

Do deleted posts necessarily have to be replaced with a system message? (6)

1 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2021-03-16 14:07 ID:qbPZwD1O

Is it done for the sake of transparency or is it a software limitation? If it's the former, then it's just clutter and almost as harmful to the health of a thread as public ban messages on 4chan-based imageboards. It isn't like you know what, when and why it was deleted, only that something used to be there.

Just my two cents, anyway.

2 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2021-03-16 15:08 ID:Heaven

This is how most 2ch-like softwares have traditionally handled post deletion. Kareha simply followed Shiichan and 0ch and others which were doing it even before here. It's written firmly in the software I don't even think it can be turned off.

3 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2021-03-16 21:39 ID:Heaven

I mean, 2ch's software is kind of shit. Remember when it was about to go down in the early 2000s until the UNIX board optimized it a bit?

4 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2021-03-18 05:39 ID:PAbB4I17

The software of 2ch is even worse than kareha lol it can't even delete posts, thats why "deleted" posts have all their fields replaced with あぼーん and im pretty sure mods had to do that manually, probably still do? would explain why moderation is so rare

5 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2021-03-18 05:57 ID:Heaven

Oh yeah and they have a whole board for reports because they also lack a proper report system

6 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2021-10-19 02:34 ID:uhZThS+T

Yes. If you simply delete the post, it affects the message count and the >>reply system. Consider a reply that says >>3,6-8,11. When 7 is deleted, manually updating that >>reply string to >>3,6-7,10 is just a lot of work.

Obviously, you have never programmed a textboard before.

Kareha is public domain software. Why don't you program a report system if you're so clever? It shouldn't be that hard; client-side JS or no.

Does anyone remember this game? (3)

1 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2021-05-19 04:18 ID:auum9GGd

This is a game I played when I was young a couple times but know can't remember. The game was in a sort of black and white style, but not fully monochrome. It was on the PS2, and you played as this kinda Spy-woman while you did flips and shit and tried to get to the adjective. It was in the third person, as well. Some of the levels took place on this roof of sorts, and I remember getting inside the building before being spotted and apprehended, losing the game. Details on this are very foggy and perhaps false, however.

If anyone has any thought of what this game might have been or what I could be (mis)-remembering, feel free to post video of that vidya.

54 Name: Anonymous Advisor : 2021-06-20 18:50 ID:Heaven

You will never be a real woman. You have no womb, you have no ovaries, you have no eggs. You are a homosexual man twisted by drugs and surgery into a crude mockery of nature’s perfection.

All the “validation” you get is two-faced and half-hearted. Behind your back people mock you. Your parents are disgusted and ashamed of you, your “friends” laugh at your ghoulish appearance behind closed doors.

Men are utterly repulsed by you. Thousands of years of evolution have allowed men to sniff out frauds with incredible efficiency. Even trannies who “pass” look uncanny and unnatural to a man. Your bone structure is a dead giveaway. And even if you manage to get a drunk guy home with you, he’ll turn tail and bolt the second he gets a whiff of your diseased, infected axe wound.

You will never be happy. You wrench out a fake smile every single morning and tell yourself it’s going to be ok, but deep inside you feel the depression creeping up like a weed, ready to crush you under the unbearable weight.

Eventually it’ll be too much to bear - you’ll buy a rope, tie a noose, put it around your neck, and plunge into the cold abyss. Your parents will find you, heartbroken but relieved that they no longer have to live with the unbearable shame and disappointment. They’ll bury you with a headstone marked with your birth name, and every passerby for the rest of eternity will know a man is buried there. Your body will decay and go back to the dust, and all that will remain of your legacy is a skeleton that is unmistakably male.

A certain amount of off-color humor is part of what's always made anonymous boards the way they are. But there's a line between spam / trolling / harassment and just enough sass to filter out norms. (Not that 4-ch is exactly a hot destination, but I guess that Wikipedia article on Textboards really draws a lot of people in, huh?)
