【13】Think tank [last50 /meta/]

Since 8/jp/ doesn't need this site any more and since there's hardly anyone here, there's no harm in changing things up in crazy ways. I originally started making this just to experiment with various features anyway.

I've had a few ideas.
For starters, big imageboards tend to be more like chatrooms, and although I haven't used a forum in forever I still think there's some value in the slower feeling of forums. So one idea might be to slow down the speed of an imageboard by only serving a static board that doesn't show live posts. People can view the old posts and make replies all day, but the replies don't show up until some fixed time every 24 hours (or every 6 hours or whatever) when the entire site updates to display all the new posts that were made in that period.
This way you could just come and check out the site like once or twice a day instead of having the feeling of being stuck constantly checking threads for new replies. If a big imageboard behaved that way I wonder if it would encourage people to spend more time creating interesting content or coming up with original thoughts of their own before posting, and also cool down hot heads so arguments will probably be much shorter lived.

Another idea might be to have something like 2 channels for each thread, side by side. One would be for lower quality comments, arguments, or things you want to say to one person that isn't relevant to the whole thread (sort of similar to when you sage your post knowing that it doesn't deserve to bump the thread), and the other channel for things that you think everyone should see. Of course this wouldn't be moderated at all or anything, it would just be up to each poster to decide which one to use.

If anyone has any other interesting or weird ideas I'd like to hear them too, or let me know what you think of the 2 above.

I've used the idea to teach myself some golang for an API server I'm going to write so it's likely not going to be a continuously developed thing.

Is it just me or is this site getting a lower amount of posts everyday? I always check here after work and today there's only been about three or four posts. I know this is one of the niche IBs hipster kids click on when they browse creamy's list and then forget about forever but still, imageboards are most active during the summer. If this is the amount of people that use this site in July I fear how many posts there will be in a few months

【27】Regarding the boards [last50 /meta/]

i made a list of boards i think 4taba should have. obviously untitled boards mean we can have whatever we want but it would still be a good idea to expand the official selection.

>black - board already exists

>yellow - board exists as an untitled board but should be made official

>red - board doesn't exist

most of these are self-explanatory as 4chan has them already. the only really unique ones are /im/ (internet media) and /io/ (images only). /im/ would basically be a version of /tv/ for youtubers and podcasts, as well as allowing for discussion about creating your own content. /io/ is a suggestion i saw on /qa/ a while ago and i thought it sounded neat. basically it's the opposite of a text-only board like /news/ - no words (not even in the title), only images. interesting to see what would happen

- Add sorting threads by creation date to the catalog
- Fix up the Flash board
- Only OP can upload flash
- Smaller max thread count
- Add ability for OP to upload HTML5 applications instead of just flash, screw the consequences we're doing this shit because it sounds fun
- Add /titled/ and /untitled/ (just like /all/ but will only display threads from titled and untitled boards)

Under consideration, let me know your opinion:
- Remove the OP moderation features and password field
- Merge hardware and software boards into just a PC board
- Change programming to development board (can also discuss developing content, or other DIY)

Taba-tan, would it be possible to tem up with some other small chans?
And what I mean by this, would be Taba-tan approaching some other small chans, and both agreeing to advertise each other on their home pages, or something, and agreeing not to have any extremely niche boards overlap.
Like, each having an /a/ and a /v/ would be fine, but only 4taba would have an /sf/.

What do you think? I know it'd be kinda stupid, but think about the brotherly bonds.
And we could each, someday, end up having our own 4cc-type-thing teams, since our individual boards are way too small.

【5】Site Rules [last50 /meta/]

Originally we had a rule where the "unofficial boards" were
>not for creating a home for outside material and exist for the targeted demographics of the official boards

which of course would also require that things like this could be deleted from official boards as well.

But it seemed people didn't like having rules like that on a small site so I removed them.

Please give me your input.
I think I want to add the following global rules back:
* Certain inappropriate images (depending on the board) can be deleted by mods, for example furry or gore or 3D porn on boards like /a/.
* Unofficial boards are for the user interests of the main boards, not to create places for any content you want.

What do you guys think? Personally I think the first rule is definitely needed or else you'll just get furry, porn, and gore spam on basically any board, and I think it's simple enough that it shouldn't cause problems since it's fairly basic and only about deleting the image not the entire post.

But what about the second rule?
One possibility is to just not show threads from unofficial boards on /all/ and let people use them for anything (legal). Or should we keep the interests of unofficial boards limited to those of the official boards?

People can upload small audio or video files that get played on the home page randomly, but only 5 every week. The 5 would be chosen by a random selection of site users every week (or every month or whatever).

Instead of waiting for feedback I just added it because I was bored, so feel free to say it sucks if you want.
Merged a gif+music clip as the first video to start it off

It only takes webm right now but it'll take other formats including just audio files too if we decide to keep the feature.

Recently I made script that highlight quoted post and popup if it is outside of screen when you put your mouse over a quote, same way that vichan/4chan does, and I thought it would be nice to share with you guys.

How the code works:
First it search on the page for the post, if it's not found it will download the page on the quote link and cache it on a object, so it won't need to download again.
Second it will check if the post is visible on your screen, if it is it will only add a class (highlighted), other wise it will show as a popup up.

Here is the script's link: https://ghostbin.com/paste/d2ao9
To change highlighted color, just change it on line 13.

I'm not a real programmer, it's just a hobby for me, so it could have some bugs, and maybe I didn't use the best approach, well feel free to point out the bugs, my mistakes, change the code, etc.

【6】GETs [last50 /meta/]

this site seems to go by a post count system more reminiscent of 2ch ie each thread has its own post count which always starts at 1. on the other hand each thread has its own unique thread number, increasing by 1 per new thread. this removes the ability to get large GETs within threads (maybe trips or quads at the most idk the post limit) but in turn allows for large thread number GETs. won't this encourage GETfags to spam threads instead of posts within threads? on the other hand, new threads are far less common than posts, even on busy 4chan boards, making a GET relatively trivial and reducing the incentive. what are your thoughts on this? of course this is all assuming the site picks up enough steam to get past 1000 threads on one board lmao.
