We need fresh blood for fresh discussion. We should advertise. But how?
Clearly the image was made before a time when a certain demographic bastardized this shortened version of the world with misuse and overuse.
It also is a weird image in general. I understand the point you're trying to make but the kind of people who take images with cute anime girls seriously are also the kind of people to scoff at the use of normie.
How many imageboards achieved mainstream success? You are worrying about the wrong issues.
Who pissed in your coffee?
Images like this are really gay. Cute anime girls aren't supposed to be taken seriously. Stop using them to try and make actual points.
Are you sure? You'll get spam and shit.
If too many new people are introduced at once you can expect a radical change in atmosphere.
Eemgbroad advertisements never end well. It always gets out of hand. Always.
Having more people is not always good. I still regret having me here.
I think it both depends upon the individual people, as well as the number. Right now, I think 4taba just has a population much lower than that needed for, as the second post's image puts it, peak fun. If we were to advertise, where should it be done, and how? One has to be careful not to really "advertise," that is, throw out the name when it's irrelevant, or make threads for the sole purpose of advertising. That sort of stuff is hated by most of the people I see us advertising to.
>>7The various lists of active alternate imageboards that exist out there are good enough advertisements already, imo.
What 4taba needs is more varied discussion. If you're going to advertise, do it on a niche site/chat. Advertising on other imageboards only results in spam and more pretentious ironic weeaboos making shitty 2hu threads for one day then leave the board and forget it existed
The site seems to have lost significant traffic since Tabamin's abdication. Where did all those posters go to?
>>9I sort of agree, but also consider that people who frequent "other" imageboards are usually aware of most of the active ones, considering that a lot of them share the same userbase. It's often redundant and just attracts undesirables who wouldn't have known about the site otherwise because they stick to the 8 and spacechans of the world.>>10A lot of people expressed distaste at the new admin, so it could be a lot of things, a sekrit club bunker, an IRC/discord channel which is usually where communities end up being moved to when something happens, or they could've just stopped using sites like this for a while since they're not fast. Or forever. A lot of people mentioned running out of places to go online.
No, there were a couple who expressed distaste about his administration of Kissu.
people just felt that it wasn't 4taba without original admin
>A lot of peopleWasn't it just one guy who didn't like that his name sounds russian?
Slow-paced imageboards are comfy. Don't try to be the next 4chan, focus on making quality threads and posts. People who have an interest in posting here are probably already aware of this place.
>>>/ni/251 that was thread where I think it was all discussed
>>12I think there's a point where it goes beyond comfy and lapses into nothingness. Ideally, it should be fast enough that you can carry on a conversation, but slow enough that it doesn't become a chatroom.
All the people that should know about this place already know of it. I don't think 4taba would be suited for board affiliation.
Spreading the word doesn't have to be an organized campaign where we all agree on a small list of websites and put up one thread at each one. If you know a cool person or website then just get them over here.
It's kind of hard to spread yourself across so many small boards, over time you'll end up gravitating towards a couple. I'll try to visit 4taba more often, but unless there's a flashing image to tell me to do it I'll forget again.Hmm...
>>10 pretty sure they went to various textboards since they're the only places that have the same retro site layout. 4taba is imageboard in name only
>>20 Disagreed, the only textboard part of this site is the post numbering system
>>4I have been reading this site for almost year now but have avoided posting for exactly this reason.
>>20 But this site is literally both. It's not properly an imageboard any more than it's properly a textboard, because you can make imageless threads.Also the site has changed a lot. It used to be that we could make text-only threads where posting images was prohibited. And I mean, the only real difference between imageboards and textboards is the images. Other than that it's the "feel" of it, and I think this site has more of a textboard "feel" than your average imageboard does.
For what it's worth, Kissu rather grew on me with the Yotsuba B redesign.
>>24I see that both Kissu and Kotatsu fulfill a niche that is not on the imageboard sphere. I'm going to be opening a blog where I discuss my direction and mindset.
