This is an imageboard for a group of students that have graduated or are currently attending a small advanced program school in the United States! It is work-safe only and has nothing to do with anime at all! Please do not hurt the server, I do not have any more!

the "JEWS" stylesheet is pretty classy, is that yours or does it come with kusaba by default?

505 Name: Anonymous : 2008-05-21 00:34 ID:Heaven [Del]

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

i don't want to start a new thread for this moment of idle curiosity, so i'll ask here:

sovietrussia.org boards link to http://rigelseven.com/ at the bottom, with the title "matsuba".
but I don't see anything about "matsuba" on that site.
what is it?

His home brewed imageboard, last time I checked.
You can't download it though. You can try beg him, I'm sure he'll enjoy the pestering.

A currrently closed sourced (I believe) Python imageboard. Storlek said that he'd make it available sometime in the future, but he said it was a terror to install.

...why not put throw this out into the open too


Not really an image board per se, but just a little something I wrote to be an extremely lightweight and simple discussion board that can run on almost any server. Its featureset is far from complete, but right now it's adequate for my site so I'm not going to ``fix'' it.

I realize now that this is an image board about a non-english language in the English Image Boards thread. However, 2/3rds of the boards are in english so I suppose it's alright.

>>531 The Project Chanology boards have been removed from this chan. The Project Chanology boards were intended for the discussion of "Project Chanology," or the on-going debates between people of Anonymous and the Church of Scientology. It was also intended for the organization of peaceful protests throughout the world. The boards have been abused by hackers and the like, which has given me only one choice - to remove them. This chan does not support or condone any type of illegal behavior. If you do not agree with our policies and procedures outlined in our FAQ and Rules pages, leave. Anyone who violates our rules will be banned indefinitely.

For future reference:

This thread is where you post about your fancy new image board.

Don't start useless new threads for every tiny little boards nobody but you and your friends use. If you manage get big enough that people have actually heard of you, you might warrant your own thread. Until then, keep it in here.

None of that would deem your software "heavily modded."

Why are "[URL=" and "[/URL]" not blocked?

598 Name: Anonymous : 2009-01-25 03:55 ID:Heaven [Del]

a better question is, why are "valium" and "xanax" not blocked?
only a few horribly broken spambots are going to post stuff like "[URL=" and "[/URL]", while "valium" and "xanax" are very common spam words.

599 Name: Anonymous : 2009-01-25 05:36 ID:Heaven [Del]

But what if someone wants to talk about valium or xanax here? Such a restrictive filter would surely interfere with discussion!

when was the last time you heard anyone talking about valium or xanax outside of spam or discussion about spam?
