There have been mornings where I cycle through all of the big forums I frequent, and all of them are focused on the same big drama, that I just don't want to think about. Then I come to some tiny imageboard, and everyone's still arguing about the same things they always are, as if nothing in the world has changed. And nothing has changed, whatever the big drama is is totally irrelevant, no one will care in six days, or six months, or six years.
Maybe someone could make a board with a rule that says you can only post if you haven't visited any larger forum in X days. I guess you would make people install spyware on their PCs and phones that would detect if they visited other forums. If they did, they would get a cooldown of however many days before they would be allowed to post again.
I doubt anyone would want spyware on their computer, and even if they did, they would find ways to circumvent it. But its fun to think about what such a board would be like. I guess most people visit forums because they're bored, and need something to do. So you could set up self-improvement tasks, like read so many pages of a book, or do so many push-ups, or whatever else, and encourage people to do them when they get bored, and then post the results.
I especially like the idea of a forum that cares about individual people, rather than just treating everyone as transient, alienated, fungible ip addresses. Maybe when someone signed up, they would be assigned a mentor, who would check up on them, to see how they're doing. Idk.
