Happy birthday Tohno-chan.
It still says Could not create webm thumbnail.
That's probably related to Shinden's brilliant idea of giving the board a japanese name.
It will take a while until I can give it a look though.
Rename it to nihongo so I can post my webm
Kusaba has no way of doing that and creating a tool that does it will probably take as much time as fixing the problem itself. 仕方が無い
What's the point of having threads made two-three years ago still up today? And why have so many pages for a board with a very small population?
I think stuff like this is why not many people post here. When you're browsing threads and seeing stuff made a year ago, its very discouraging and no doubt kills motivation to post.
What you don't seem to understand is that new topics magically (not really but I have no idea what this incomprehensible psychological phenomenon is called) spark discussion. We rarely get to observe it on /tc/ because old threads don't get pruned but the site got really active overnight when we moved from ib4f to current /tc/.
>What you don't seem to understand is that new topics magically (not really but I have no idea what this incomprehensible psychological phenomenon is called) spark discussion
In my experience new threads mostly just predictably spark meta discussion about how the thread sucks and why aren't mods deleting it faster?
No, this only happens if someone makes a duplicate thread. Or if the thread is utter cancer, on far rarer occasions.
From a purely technical standpoint, we could really benefit from boards with less pages.
Rebuilding the boards takes too much fucking time as it is now.
Why the fuck would you do this?
I understand wanted/needing more visitors, but why buy a public ad, and on /a/ of all places? This is just throwing the door open to all sorts of undesirables. I never actually used this website, but I heard of it, and isn't the place closer to /jp/ than /a/?
Whoever bought the ad doesn't seem to understand just how much shit goes through /a/ every day before the mods delete it.
just ban the bad posters. if you cant tell that someones from 4chan whats the big deal? i bet you even went to 4chan once
You know, there's not really much we can do if someone decides to take it upon themselfs to place an ad somewhere or link to us. We've had that in the past with encyclopedia dramatica and some over chan. Pretty sure they didn't mean any harm by it and just wanted to give the site a little boost. seems they've already taken it down anyways. Nothing to get too worked up over I think.
Even if rabid niggertiters overrun and devour TC we will always have the archive. If you'd like to take further precaution, screen cap you favorite board and then just look at that image when you feel a longing for "classic TC" from back in the good old days before noobs pooped noobpoop all over TC and ruined it.
Meh, mod team is going the 'less quality more activity' route anyway so who cares. Ban the crap posters and keep the good ones.
I'm a poster from the /r9k/ board of an imageboard, 4chon, that used to be pretty big but has since dwindled in size. The imageboard itself closed down about a year or so ago, and since then our user base has been camping out at 8ch. Unfortunately this site has its own share of problems, so our community has been discussing trying to find a new home.
There's only about 5 or 6 regular posters, and most of us have been regulars on imageboards for years. Mostly we're looking for a place to keep in touch until we die off or quite the Internet for good. Do you have any unused boards we could take over? We won't bother your community or anything, we just need a place to stay.
Our current spot is https://www.8ch.net/4chonr9k/index.html if you want to come over and say hi.
>I don't really know what you're looking for here OP,
>Mostly we're looking for a place to keep in touch until we die off or quite the Internet for good.
They don't want to interact with /tc/ers, they just want a board for themselves.
yeah sounds to me it'd be a lot like /akb/ or /lol/.
At least users of akb have something in common with the rest of tc and will sometimes contribute to the other boards. Users from r9k probably hate you for being an otaku and will contaminate the site while consuming resources and contributing nothing.
Are you a mod speaking from data obtained by stalking users around reliable metrics or just wishful thinking?
Recently I spoke with someone about /mai/ and they mentioned the board has become something of a joke in recent days, and of course this was a bit concerning. The issue mainly involves the rise in the more bizarre characters. Besides being unsightly, some leave the validity of their partner's claims to be questionable.
The idea has been bought up about limiting the board to eastern characters only and I'd like to hear your thoughts on the matter.
I really dislike the exclusion of waifus that are considered furry. Just cause it doesn't come from eastern media doesn't mean it cant be some ones waifu. Saying such would be ridiculous. I understand that some might question the seriousness of some, but can't exceptions be made for those who are serious? Ive only ever been able to find two places for waifuism, and the other place isn't really active.
It's not that it can't be someone's waifu, it's just that it can't be posted on our waifu board. Not without being deleted, that is. It really doesn't matter how pure, how honest your love may be.
With so many people telling me to leave or get out or go make my own board, I have to think otherwise. Like I have the time to make my own board. I could understand if some one could think I am trolling, but I'm not, not in the slightest. I didn't know that I'd find such mean spirited people here, but I guess I was wrong.Post edited on 8th Oct 2015, 4:44pm
Its not hard to make a reddit board or something.
The Himouto thread has been deleted because of all the complaints and reports we've been getting with regards to low quality posting in it. Unfortunately this meant some on-topic posts were deleted but I feel the thread worded in such a way that it could not become anything besides a thread where people complained about 'why isn't she fat' or 'this is whats wrong with 3D women in society today'.
Just a friendly reminder that if you don't like a post or thread, please report it. Believe it or not us mods check the reports regularly. Shitposting to try and get mods to delete a thread will not be tolerated and we will punish not only the person you were responding to but you as well.Post edited on 6th Aug 2015, 9:41pm
It's got it's ups and downs, but at the end of the day I wouldn't want to be the admin of any other site but this one.
That's great, I hope everything works out for you and this site.
Someone actually did it!
The absolute madman!
>/navi/ - science & technology
>Is your computer moe?
i think you should face up to the reality that a board populated exclusively by little girls is never going to have a good sci/tech board
Post in some threads you would like to see conversation in, or make new ones.
Nice picture by the wayPost edited on 23rd Sep 2015, 6:56am
i can't because i am a little girl
aren't we all?
change the name of /so/ to /dsm/
make it creepier
Why leave bondage out? It's the best part.
What does noko in the email field do?
It gives me cancer
Keeps you in the thread you just posted in/ created.
It gives this guy cancer.
Try to type 'cute' in the email field, it will automatically make your post cuter!
Since, with Tohno's blessing, I plan to start work on developing a new board engine for Tohno-chan, I'd like to ask you: What do you think should change? What should be added? What should be removed?
Not all 4chan features fit us. What I was considering to bring is the catalog, as well as the Polish vichan's overboard (that is, a board which contains unseen posts from all boards of your choice) - that would be very useful for a small chan like ours. (Also, replace BBCode with something more akin to Markdown)
Multiple file upload is something I never really liked - I much preferred one file per post. However, I was thinking of adding a web-based CBZ/CBR viewer.
OK, I'm most interested in the floating reply window, and the dropdown function on threads. Anything that makes it possible to read and reply without going into a sperate page.
Make it automatically generate pages that look good on shitty touchscreen gadgets made for whiny faggots smartphones and tablets.
That's just CSS magic. You add a clause to your CSS which loads a completely different style if the screen width is too small.
/fig/ should rly be /merch/ because there is a lot of non-fig merch issues which end up being discussed on random not-exactly-related boards because there isn't a /daki/ or /hole/ or whatev.
It already is for all things merch, and 'merch' is a bit long for an address anyway I think.
I believe people have posted about daki on there before. If people are posting about their waifu dakis on /mai/ I think that's fine. Holes (if I get what you're referring to) are better off on /ns/ in my opinion.
We can just keep the url /fig/ but put the subtitle - Merch.
