I've actually thought that trying to get users from non-imageboard websites onto smaller imageboards might be a good idea, but then you basically have a bunch of social media using, emoticon :3 posting people instead of people who can conduct themselves well.
Its sad too, because without users places like Samachan will die.
You actually do bring up an interesting point though. I definitely think it's a fault of the community rather than the rules/site itself. Pretty much everyone is there for anime I think, so it does make discussion on other otaku things non existent. Which is a shame, because a site populated by people using both /a/ and /z/ could be a really good quality website, imo.

You might be interested in the articles of Clay Shirky. Though, seeing as you are an internet-savvy user, you have probably already read his works.
For those of you who are unfamiliar, check this link: http://shirky.com/writings/group_enemy.html
His observations seem to explain why 4chan in in such a sorry state these days.

I hadn't read that before, thanks. It goes quite a ways in explaining what the hell is wrong with people.>>101
Introducing normies to small boards isn't a bad idea in itself. You wouldn't want to do it en mass, but one or two here and there would probably strengthen the community. It's kind of a Sophie's Choice, really: would you rather have 4chan-style shitposting or Facebook-style shitposting?

That's very interesting, thanks for sharing it.
I think the most important aspects are the size and some barrier to participation. Textboards such as this one defend themselves relatively well from growing because of its barriers to entry, i.e. its relative obscurity and very slow pace of posting.
What could kill a community like this is a sudden inburst of people who are not acquainted with the ways of textboards. Like >>103
said, if it's just one or two here and there, they'd be able to absorb the culture and the implicit rules pretty easily, but if a lot of people suddenly burst in, bringing remnants of the culture of the place they came from, they'd see others who are behaving the same way as them and they'd never learn, and soon they'd settle in and kill it for good.
Unfortunately, for anonymous boards it's very hard to prevent something like this.

said, it looks like some /pol/-children got a hold of it, but don't be discouraged. Some moderation will help with that.
I think having a way to connect one note to another would help stimulate real discussion.

You can edit and vandalize posts. The point is total anarchy. If you wanted to right now you could clear everyones notes.
The problem with the delete button is that trolls would just delete every single fucking note on the wall so i disabled it. Don't get discouraged though, vandalizing and overwriting posts is still a thing.
The purpose is total anarchy.

In newer versions of Firefox I guess they don't let you ignore HTTPS errors if the site uses the HSTS policy which is meant to ensure that the site is accessed through HSTS. I believe all browsers are starting to take measures like these out of concern that warnings that you can click through do not give non-technical users sufficient pause, and they just become habituated to clicking through.

So the full effect is enjoyed with both your phone and computer. Go to this link on both and begin to stamp air mail papers with your geo-tagged location, fold the paper into airplanes, throw them from your phone into the wild onto your computer screen, catch other planes, see where they've been, relax.
It really reminded me of this place. Amazing to see people still using it though.

99chan has been irrelevant for years now. There comes a point when you have to accept that the website never took off. 99 brought it on itself too by making so many boards when the size of their userbase didn't warrant it so they have no sympathy from me.

Here's a comfy Discord group for those of you who aren't averse to non-anon posting. It's relatively small and discussion is all over the place, but the main focus is just on establishing and nurturing friendships. I'd love to see some of you around.https://discord.gg/YrjmEFd

Discord is finally killing off IRC after all these years. That's as good a reason as any to hate it. Let's hope it's a temporary trend and not a permanent shift, though.
134 Name: Anonymous : 2017-07-11 07:20
Just curious—what is the difference between the two formats, for you? More specifically, what makes Discord worse?
135 Name: Anonymous : 2017-07-11 10:19
Discord is centralized, while on IRC you have tons of different servers and you can even run your own.
IRC is ubiquitous and has tons of different clients, so you could just as well connect to a server on a 30 year old computer you found in your basement, as opposed to Discord which only has one client that requires running a web browser.
On IRC you can also have people come and go in a channel, which in my opinion makes it much more fun, though you also have the option to make your channel invisible. You can easily /list and search for stuff that you like or /whois anybody and join any channels that look interesting, rather than googling around randomly.
It's definitely not perfect, and I wish there were people interested in improving it, but being so ubiquitous and decentralized is what will make it stick around and outlive everything else.

I recently re-discovered the location of /tea/ (I had run into it quite a long time ago but never visited when it was open), and was going to check it out today, but I forgot and then it closed again. I expect that I'll only go there once or twice for novelty's sake and to feel like I'm part of a secret club (but it is kind of a secret club).>>148
When I randomly clicked on accounts there and on tilde.club, almost all were empty or practically empty. People like the idea, perhaps out of nostalgia, but don't do much with it. They either don't have any real content to feed to the site (neither did many people back in the day, hence all the pages perpetually "under construction"), or they lose interest since the way we use the web has changed too much. Neocities has been more successful because much of it is art projects, and Wired Sound seems to have popularized the site for that purpose. It also has features to make it easier to find stuff.

If you want something a bit less casual than /tea/, but still in the liveboard format https://meguca.org/a/
is usually fairly active (it is a spin-off of r/a/dio)
The admin lets people make their own boards though, and a small hive of nazis showed up, but they tend to keep to themselves. The regulars on /a/ are quite sexual.

I just randomly visited /tea/ and some guy has been ranting that anime should be banned there, and of course the moderators like all imageboard moderators are spineless cuck shitheads who wouldn't even dream of banning him because normalfags are like some kind of gods to them. There's just no escaping these subhumans anymore. They infest every corner of the internet. They literally do nothing else with their time than go around attacking anime and demanding it to be banned. They can easily spend the entire day doing it non-stop. They have nothing else going on in their lives, no other purpose for existing. They should all be killed.

Anime is a medium, not a genre friend. If I were to say "film is mainstream, also highly overrated", it wouldn't make sense because there's a lot of films that cover a wide array of genres and subject matter. Anime is the same, sure there's a lot of trash, but also there's some really good stuff out there too.
Also, anime is not really "mainstream", perhaps a lot of teenagers like deathnote or something, but most people still don't really care about anime in general.

I got interested in the idea of small imageboard with short posts' lifespan thanks to the people mentioning /tea/ and decided to make one.
I'm still not sure that site like this can work other than being some kind of IRC replacement for group of acquaintances, and after the link to /tea/ had been posted I actually got kind of discouraged because I realized that I don't like its format that much.
On top of that I'm mostly a read only person and don't know anything about building online communities, so I think it's good that I picked a suitable name for it to just being there on the internet completely empty.
The board is here: https://bus-stop.tk/
I call it a 'small talk imageboard', everything you post there stays on the site only for one day. It also has a bit of unusual layout with posts from all threads being displayed on the same page. I think it can be used for sharing of your thoughts, feelings and discoveries of media, general fun posting and other things that don't require keeping a long conversation (or having a userbase).
Anyway, thanks for your attention to my shilling, please come by time to time on your way to Post Office and say hello.
