Some terrible raid-centric imageboard that recently gained some popularity due to a flavor of the month "cause" just struck a deal of some sorts with 2ch. I don't know how it happened or what's coming next but this is big.

So like reddit then?

It feels cheap and vulgar. More of the "make your own 4chan and be your own little moot" shit. Look at the featured boards, all 4chan boards.

If you're gonna do something like this, at least put a cap on the bullshit the boards substaff might do, and perhaps provide a way to "import" threads from board to board or something.

>A chan for technology and anime can't cater to those looking for music and art, for example, unless the admins decide to make a board for it

That's stupid, niggas aren't restricted to browsing a single site.

This just in, apparently it was inspired by reddit.

I still think it's a good model.

It would be better if the boards were unmoderated and shit. Would work better with a textboard though

15 Name: Anonymous : 2014-10-18 18:22 ID:Heaven [Del]

I disagree, while individual success is not an oddity, that model encourages highly fragmentary behavior. The fact of the mater is a website is already dividing the vast population on the internet into the tiniest sliver who actively use the site, it is generally bad policy to allow further subdivision. While you may not agree with the notion, it is generally accepted there is a sweet spot for user activity between too much and not enough, and allowing everyone and their mother to create boards just reduces the activity each one of them will see. Sure one or two will prove popular enough to do fine, perhaps even thrive given enough raw material(users), but in general for every success there are going to be many more trampled underfoot. I am sorry but I simply do not see it as a viable model.

16 Name: Anonymous : 2014-11-10 20:58 ID:sHhejF7h [Del]

So is this a good development? Will this lead to smaller 8chan boards being nice places with good discussion, or merely kill off (well, severely damage) the smaller *chans while yielding inferior replacements? (Why pay to host your own niche board when 8chan'll do it?)

I'm worried this could cause further centralization, damage the uniqueness of smaller imageboards and generally be harmful, but want to be optimistic that something good will happen.

Is there any further detail on how they got a deal with 2ch?

>Some terrible raid-centric imageboard

These awful preconceptions.

That kind of thinking is really arrogant and small-minded. 4chan alternatives that have sprung over the years are still alive and well. Just because -you- don't browse or care about them, doesn't mean they died after they fell off your personal radar 3 months later.

The way I see it, each numbered "chan" carries on the tradition of being an enumerated channel, like on TV. Though I'm sure the origin of "chan" is lost on many users nowadays.

As for my personal opinion of 8chan, there aren't any particular board communities there that interest me, and those niche boards that might have interested me are practically dead. Whether this will change with its exposure due to gamergate or its partnership with 2ch, I don't know. Will have to wait and see.

TinyIB and TinyBoard vs Wakaba (43)

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.

$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)

37 Name: czaks!fPeniseKvI : 2014-05-17 14:18 ID:igkFMZBc [Del]

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.

Imageboard with registeration - a crazy idea to curb cancer (12)

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?

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.

6 Name: Anonymous : 2014-08-01 16:51 ID:p7YqWX4P [Del]

We actually did this at and recently went public. At the time, we allowed users to register using temporary e-mail addresses (Mailinator and friends), however this still did not entice many anonymous users to participate.

In our experience, it did work. As long as you understand most of the *chan user base will be turned off by the registration requirement, you can build a very favorable (yet tight) community.

7 Name: Orochi Herman!hN02YkuTxM : 2014-08-01 21:00 ID:EPGi7S61 [Del]

If you will enforce registration, make sure people have options.
Like say, register using facebook, google, twitter, etc.

And of course, give them the option to let them specify their username/avatars or not, in the spirit of imageboards.

Can you please stop spamming this on other imageboards? I thought you were above that tsucolum, creator of Trevorchan, TinyIB, and PyIB.

10 Name: Anonymous : 2014-10-24 13:22 ID:kWc1Bx8k [Del]

There was a good article about anonymity vs registration at

I want to make an imageboard - not a huge one like 4chan tho. I've started it but it's just something I'm playing with.

I've thought about whether to use registration or not. I don't like having to sign up just to comment on a subject, especially when I don't know if I will come every day and I also don't want the hassle of having to reset my password because I can't remember what I used when I was last logged in 6 months ago.

An idea is, you can give people incentive to come back and post normal / decent content. For example, allow users to post without registration but there are limits such as 15 posts per day or images must not be bigger than 1 Mb. Users can be given the option to create a name and password and build up a reputation. If only they can see their reputation/stats, and they get privilages for producing more posts (without getting banned) then they have an incentive not to shitpost.

11 Name: Anonymous : 2014-10-25 07:31 ID:OeDvIk8/ [Del]


>build up a reputation

This idea is garbage. Even if you can only see your own reputation, it would lead to users who care about that sort of thing. They are an unwanted element in imageboard communities. And of course it would lead to attentionwhoring with "post your stats" threads and whatnot.

The key element of anonymous discussion should be that individuals and egos are irrelevant; post content is all that matters, and it should never be judged in the context of the poster's previous posts.

12 Name: Anonymous : 2014-10-26 17:09 ID:Heaven [Del]

No nameless poster comes back to a site? Or are you trying to cater to posters who wouldn't come back if they can't register?

>and they get privilages for producing more posts (without getting banned)

And what would get them banned? Sounds like you plan to ban posters for whatever fucking thing.

I just now noticed that the original /b/, Futaba's Nijiura board, has been RESET! Post numbers in the twenty millions, WIPED OUT!

All of this, apparently, to move it to a new server,, and to upgrade the script to a newer version that supports image replies. Furthermore, it appears Toshiaki is back.

As of right now, post numbers are in the 139000s, so I guess this happened fairly recently, no more than a couple of days back. What will become of the biggest board of them all?

I think 4chan's s4s is pretty nice, but it can also be pretty nsfw at times.

What is this board like?
Is there any dedicated userbase?
If the point of imageboards and textboards is discussion, then isnt 4chan arguably the best because of the large userbase it has?

7 Name: Anonymous : 2014-10-03 07:03 ID:9KtvfK1n [Del]

4chan isn't the best, it's actually the worst.

A userbase filled with younger (Usually high school-age) kids that just spam and fill their boards with crap.

A website with a large and extremely active userbase is completely useless if everything they post is garbage. Even boards like /g/ and /mu/, boards which used to be filled with smart people who knew what they were talking about, are now filled with brand-attached people spouting "memes" and general shit. You can't even take advice from them anymore, because they have an intense brand obsession. Once they pledge their allegiance to one brand/person/band/etc, they just shout about how it's the best and how all others are terrible, even if the others are clearly better.

4chan is a cancer killing itself, and it's doing the world good.
