The most underground of imageboards appear to be hikikomori/neet boards.

These boards are extremely interesting just for the content posted and general community and subject matter of them.

I'm not talking things like wizardchan either, I'm talking true hikikomori.

All I can remember is hikkichan and 2 others that were rather dead. They're probably somewhere in my bookmarks. Please share if you know of any.

For Hikki in particular, Tohno-Chan is the largest English board out there.

For similar boards, try anything under otaku culture.

And then of course there is the Western equivalent of Wizardchan, but it is more self-pity and yearning for contentment rather than NEET discussion.

I'm fairly open-minded but I don't see much going on here. Here's my critique

  1. The layout and user interface is mediocre
  2. The content on the front page is not engaging. On 4chan I see anons conversing, even if it's stupidity.
  3. I seem to be able to comment only via Facebook. There are sites on which I have posted via Facebook. The overall jankiness of your imageboard for some reason discourages me from revealing my Facebook identity.
  4. The animations on images seem gratuitous. It isn't aesthetically pleasing, and it doesn't enhance my experience as a user or make anything more intuitive or rewarding to use.

Just my two cents. Make of it what you will.

8 Name: me : 2014-07-06 04:06 ID:sb84xP9H [Del]

>>7 its a visual representation of a mathematical popularity sieve, thats my two cents. please study it more as to whats going on and read the PRESS button.

I didn't even know that PRESS was a button, because it's just red text on top of a flat yellow rectangle, with no visible depth, hover state, or click state.

Beyond that, "press" can be either a verb or a noun. Without additional context, there's no way for me to know that "press" is some kind of instruction. If the button said "CLICK HERE", that would be one thing, but even that is tacky phrasing and I'd be liable to do the opposite.

But let's say I possess the mind that you feel I should, and determined that "press" is a verb and an instruction toward me as a user. I have no idea why I should press. What is is taking me to, what will happen when I do that?

If I handed you a device with a single, unlabeled, red button and told you to press that button, would you just immediately do it? Or would you feel uneasy about the fact that you have no concept of the outcome of such an action? I suspect there would be some hesitation. In fact, I would argue that there should be some hesitation.

Imageboard with registeration - a crazy idea to curb cancer (5)

1 Name: Anonymous : 2014-06-27 04:19 ID:7ULMl0Ws [Del]

Just from the thread title this sounds like a utterly crazy idea and something that goes against what imageboards are about but please keep reading. As most have noticed, majority of imageboards have either degenerated into constant flood of memes, shitposting, camwhoring and generally completely shitty content or then the boards are so small and post rate is so slow that viewing them isnt really worth the effort.

My idea to curb the general shitposting/spam/etc is to force people to make an account before they get to view the board. Go to url, get login page, maybe a register link or just text telling you to put /register after the url and make an account. After that you can view/post. No post would contain any nicknames or other name faggotry, it would be just a deterrent for people not to bother coming for cheap laughs and shitposting, bots and others. It would also allow moderators not only to ban but remove the account completely, forcing person to re-register if he wants to post again.

Besides of needing an account to view the content, the boards would function just like any other imageboard, have the same look and so on.

I dont know, this might be just a crazy idea not worth second thought but ive been thinking about this for some time now. I know, its rambling post and doesnt really make it clear how it would work but maybe somebody gets the general idea?

2 Name: Anonymous : 2014-06-27 20:20 ID:d5pqReMm [Del]

I don't like it, and an "anti-memes" attitude is enough.

And anyway you would still have the second situation of slow posting rate.

This is not terribly different from 4chan's CAPTCHA

4 Name: Anonymous : 2014-07-03 15:17 ID:+1qbYcEz [Del]

I'm of the opinion that there's no concrete definition of what an imageboard is, outside of being able to attach images to comments in a discussion-like format.

There are pros and cons to registration vs anonymous posting, but from what I can tell they're pretty much equal. Which approach is the "right" approach is dependent on what you seek to accomplish.

If you want to discourage shitposting, then authorizing users makes sense as a hurdle to cross and a means of banning identities. That said, you will also discourage people who wouldn't shitpost from posting at all.

For example, this post is not a shitpost. If I had to register to make this post, however, there's a good chance I might not have made it.

It's up to you, really.

TinyIB and TinyBoard vs Wakaba (42)

1 Name: Anonymous : 2011-10-19 00:51 ID:y2139Xdu [Del]

I thought it would be appropriate to ask you guys for your opinions on the two new big imageboard scipts now that Trevorchan is on its way out and development of Wakaba is apparently over. How do these compare to Wakaba in terms of speed and security? Are there any reasons -not- to use them? Out of the two which one is best. etc. etc.

33 Name: Anonymous : 2014-04-15 12:26 ID:RIYi8Ij3 [Del]

tee, the maker of tinyib and kusaba, is starting a new project called "sriracha" which aims to be a completely modular and easily expandable base-system. It is similar to the now-defunct edaha by sazpaimon, the maker of kusaba X, and tee may soon be porting over some of edaha's code. It should be pretty epic once completed. visit irc.1chan.us #sriracha and ping tee if you're interested or would like to help out.

$config['markup'][] = array("/\\\\(.*)\\\\/", "<span class=\"spoiler\">\$1</span>");

.+? == .* and you need 4 backslashes to match one backslash in a regex (though 3 backslashes seems to work too)

my message was badly formatted, in inc/config.php it's done well, actually.

.+? and .* are not the same. ? after + or * marks the pattern as ungreedy, so it matches as few characters as possible, instead of the regular – matching as much characters as possible.

Real-time imageboard (24)

1 Name: Anonymous : 2011-04-29 22:54 ID:xgHc7gbY [Del]

There's a demo at pixplz.com. Half-dead project of mine. Node.js and redis.

15 Name: Eleo!EhVtXXdTd6 : 2011-11-22 16:20 ID:Pga9Y2tj [Del]

Unfortunately this site doesn't seem to be running properly at the moment.

This concept is intriguing to me. I was pondering real-time updates to threads currently being viewed, and possibly other notifications to ease navigation. I've read a little about the likes of socket.io and am wondering if that's the route to take, but I have not looked deeper into the implementation at this stage of my project.

I personally would not have used Redis in lieu of a RDMS, even for a real-time site. I generally use Redis in addition to a database more suited for persistence. I would store data such as post content in the database and use Redis to keep track of when threads were bumped, which IPs posted recently. It's a lot slicker than database lookups in some cases. I've never really thought of Redis as a replacement for a real database but rather a supplement to one, but that's just me.

I've looked at Node.js and Express.js in the past. One of the reasons was that there can be a lot of duplication between server-side and client-side code when you're using different languages for each, so switching to an all-JS environment might alleviate that. Ultimately I went with tools I am familiar with.
