468 Name: Anonymous : 2008-03-20 10:35 ID:rgpOkhEK [Del]

Speed mostly. I find those features such as auto-post linking a bit useless on slow-moving boards. The goal is in the end, faster content at slower download speeds. (In before somebody calls me out for not having compression enabled as well, working on that, lighty's being wonky.)
That being said, cross-thread linking does work through pure html.

  • Can't see anything about a thread until clicking on it.
  • Placing the posting form on a separate page discourages people from contributing.
  • BBcode is braindead. If you're parsing something HTML-like anyway, why not go the extra zero percent and parse actual HTML?
  • It doesn't seem like there's any convenient way to reference previous posts; at least, there's no sort of post numbering.
  • Same selection of boards as pretty much any generic imageboard. "Halp"?
  • The "moderate" button suggests that the board is run by the moderators, rather than the users. Read this, particularly the last paragraph. It's on a different subject but the concept applies here as well.
  • "?task=board&value=bs" - mega-ugly URLs.
  • Page caching is aggressively disabled, which is a waste of bandwidth.
  • Written in PHP. Don't get me wrong; this isn't inherently bad, but usually this is the case, and judging by the "function redir($cake)" I see in the page source, I'm not altogether optimistic about the quality of the backend code.

484 Name: Anonymous : 2008-04-26 16:48 ID:fOglHoOG [Del]

  • Adds to the surprise. No just kidding, but that's what subjects are for.
  • Are people really too lazy to click a link to the post form. IMO it takes up unneeded space in the board/thread view.
  • BBcode gets the job done.
  • Yeah I know ):
  • I suppose
  • The moderate button is the only sign of moderation on the boards, mods have no way of identifying themselves.
  • I may play around with Mod-Rewrite sometime in the future.
  • Fixed.
  • Well, that's just the javascript, the actual backend is clean and well written.

Thanks for the feedback.

485 Name: Anonymous : 2008-04-27 03:10 ID:Heaven [Del]

  • Makes it harder to read the board. I like being able to, for example, load /soc/ and get the most recent posts along with the context of the threads they're in, all on one page.
  • Perhaps you're not realizing why it's so useful to have this on the same page. First, having the post form in plain view actively invites people to post a reply, rather than merely suggesting that it is possible to do so. Second, putting the form on a separate page necessitates flipping back and forth, or opening two browser windows, in order to refer back to previous posts in the thread. I understand it's a matter of opinion, but this is the main reason why I don't even bother with most forums.
  • So does HTML, and it's not retarded. Assuming you're doing something more robust than s/\[(\/?[biu])\]/<$1>/g (and I really hope you are), you're already doing most of the work. Plus, there's libraries abound for other markup schemes; PHP-Markdown, for example, is pretty easy to install and use.

I'd still go for hiding the mod panel login on a different page. (admin.php, maybe?) It's a wart on an otherwise very clean layout.

  • I didn't want to rewrite the entire script
  • I didn't want the script to make a directory for every board

493 Name: Anonymous : 2008-05-03 10:49 ID:Heaven [Del]

That's currently the plan of action.

There was a notice in the rules area which explained the lack of true thumbnails. The framework I'm using (Google App Engine) doesn't include any kind of image library with Python.
Now I use an off-site script to process the thumbnails, which pushes them back when finished.

And, because I'd like to get this off of my back, >>487 is the first post I've made on this board in about six or seven months. I do, however, enjoy lurking here, because it is a great site of discussion. In my time here I've seen quite a few posts which appear to be identifying the poster as myself, usually including a snappy phrase involving going back to bed. I just want to say that I've laughed quite a few times at these, and I want you to keep it up.

jews.css was homegrown, though it probably should be the default style on every kusaba install considering the code that i've seen in it so far

An imageboard that I started for "extreme" sports. Still doing a lot of hacking on it. I am hoping to attract some users, but have not started actively advertising it yet.

Any comments, criticisms, or suggestions appreciated.

I look at the front page, notice the lack of frames and a layout similar to 4chan, expected something good, noticed it was powered by kusaba and was full of ads, I got deceived.

508 Name: Anonymous : 2008-05-26 21:07 ID:w6P+bRcT [Del]


Yeah, I see everyone bashes kusaba around here, but I have not seen any good reason why? I'm all ears. I prefer working with PHP rather than perl so that is why I chose kusaba. Is there something bad about it that I don't know?

Also, are ads on an imageboard a bad thing or what? I don't think 1 google ad in the upper part of the page could be considered "full of ads" either.

509 Name: Anonymous : 2008-05-26 22:15 ID:6411HZRx [Del]

There's nothing wrong with Kusaba the way you're handling it. You've obviously modified it somewhat--one of the things that irritates me is the default installations loaded with boards that are exactly like the major *chans.

The code is pretty bad too, but I'm sure you've noticed that. Don't worry, >>507 is probably just butthurt because he is the opposite of athletic.

510 Name: Anonymous : 2008-05-27 05:21 ID:Ssq/4GVk [Del]

Yes, I have looked at some of the code, especially in the board-post.class.php and it is a bit sloppy. However, it is pretty well documented so I can see what it is doing and make some changes. The biggest problem I see with it is the lack of separation of code and interface. I haven't dug in too deep on a lot of it yet though, so I may find other surprises.

Another thing I thought was strange was that there are a lot of hard coded ads, links, etc built into the code for kusaba.org that are turned on with the setting of a variable.

On a side note, my target audience may also not have a lot of experience with this type of website so it will be interesting to see how it goes.

511 Name: Anonymous : 2008-05-27 12:47 ID:Heaven [Del]

Good luck. I swapped a phpbb-style forum out for an imageboard once. Most of the regular posters left, and the ones that stayed kept complaining that it was too hard to post.

512 Name: Anonymous : 2008-05-27 13:38 ID:D5x0L0LN [Del]

Yes, it certainly will be challenging changing the mindset of the users. It seems that the average internet user, in the USA, has grown accustom to the vbulletin style of message boards. How do you go about getting them to use an interface that they are not familiar with? I mean its not like image boards are particularly hard to use, they just are "different".

Any advice out there?

513 Name: Anonymous : 2008-05-27 21:36 ID:Heaven [Del]

Just explain it really, really well. Don't link straight to the board, link to a click-through tutorial of sorts, explaining how it all works so they can get a bit of understanding of the board style.

For example, point out that it's just simpler to type your name rather than logging in all the time, about how posting is easier and faster because the form's right there on the page already, show them how to delete posts (nobody can figure this one out on their own; even regulars seem to miss this, and the ability to control your post is apparently important to phpbb/vbulletin regulars)... basically compare and contrast the two styles and show why this style of board is better.

Be careful not to make it come off as some sort of crazy rant, though. Yammering about anonymity and the like to people who are very much entrenched in the idea of having a fixed identity will definitely scare a lot of would-be posters off. Maybe point out tripcodes, but don't get too technical about them, and keep them in a separate section/page.

Also, try to get people to understand that what they're looking at isn't some kind of blog or guestbook. A lot of people are hesitant to post because they're not sure what the board is.

Basically, you pretty much want to get the point across that yes, it does look different, but it's fundamentally similar to any phpbb/vbulletin board, just stripped of a lot of the fluff.

Oh, and a non-Futaba-style layout might help. A lot of people don't post because it's "too ugly". I don't get this reasoning, and personally I think phpbb looks like pure ass... shrug
