saving textboars, is it even worth it and if so how can they be saved (50)

1 Name: Anonymous : 2017-08-01 09:22

Textboards are pretty dead these days, the average textboard only gets one post a day and that post is terrible. Grillchan already shuttered its doors citing lack of quality posts, how can we prevent this board and others from suffering the same fate?

It seems as though the only way would be to attempt to make less terrible posts, but is that possible let along worth it? Are textboards doomed ue to the impossibility of posting well? Does it matter?

These questions are not merely rhetorical, they demand an answer forthwith, the next textboard to close might spark a chain reaction of shuttering boards. From there, we are left with none very shortly unless this issue is addressed. Then what?

In cases like 4-ch the problem in somewhat compounded in that there's only one board that gets regularly posted to and the other ones wait months and sometimes years before getting posts which are not spam.
Of course in order to get more users it would be pertinent to post a link to 26ch somewhere. The problem that invites, since it's probably publicly posted, is getting users who spam or make terrible posts.

Well I don't know about "textboars" but these textboards are what we need to save.

We need textobelix to hunt them down.

4-ch should have locked all the side boards ages ago.

8 Name: Anonymous : 2017-08-09 13:41

I would happily use 4ch if it was just one board like 26ch, or even a few boards, but in its current state it's really useless.

9 Name: Anonymous : 2017-08-09 18:10

You people don't understand 4-ch. It's pretty much dead, apart from its main board, DQN. DQN is the only active board and is really the only one people spend time on. That and Film & TV.

Grillchan too. Hope both comes back.

Grillchan owner here, I might find a suitable paid but cheap web hosting in the near future, but for now it's dead mostly due to inactivity and that the netbook just keeps on shutting off anyway. Also due to that I (maybe) able to go on uni, then it's kinda no point on maintaining the netbook on hosting the site.
As for the files in it, they won't be back and would likely be a new setup when it's back up.
The lack of quality discussion maybe due to a lack of direction for the site. I did plan on doing a global board then just add one for a popular topic/interests, but it seems to be that the global board was basically /pol/: the textboard. Not like I have a problem with /pol/ in general, but I certainly would like more technology and programming topics instead, but that barely happened.
As for now, you'll just have to wait for an update on my site when the textboard will be up:

Uni is a waste of time. It's better to forego it and instead focus on getting your textboard to a more exceptional level. Trust me, you'll be kicking yourself if you don't.

15 Name: Anonymous : 2017-08-13 12:15

I'll probably put more useful ones in the future
I yet to see my result yet, and neither am I that optimistic about doing computer science in uni at the first place. Kinda feel like there's probably better and less financial stress way to go about. Planning to do apprenticeship instead if I failed to meet the grades required.

I only visit dis.tinychan and savoq, and both seem to be doing just fine. No where near 1 post a day, for sure.
I'm glad progrider closing didn't completely kill textboards.

>>16 I'm glad progrider closing didn't completely kill textboards.

What happened to progrider? When? Why?
How come nobody tells me anything around here.

>>16 I only visit dis.tinychan and savoq, and both seem to be doing just fine.

If you could tell us the URL for each one, THAT WOULD BE GREAT.

The admin apparently got bored of the site and stopped paying for hosting.

Progrider closed down some months ago because their admin got bored and didn't want to pay for the site. Fortunately, all their threads are still there on tinychan.

Try it has links to most current textboards, of which there are still plenty.

Internet censorship is also reaching an all time high.

29 Name: Anonymous : 2017-08-20 03:28

While I may not agree with most (or possibly anything) that was hosted on The Daily Stormer, the fact that their hosts and cloudflare refused their business is disconcerting for free speech. Some make the argument that they could find a different host, however if nobody wants to host TDS even though it falls within legal bounds to do so seems more like outright censorship.

It's the first step of that "First they came for the Jews" quote but with roles reversed.

30 Name: Anonymous : 2017-08-20 06:04

Don't worry about it, the free market will solve things. Many shekels to be made in providing free speech platforms, it's literally the only reason twitter and reddit got popular. Just worry about Marxism and the destruction of the free market, rather than getting all bothered by meaningless blips.

Why can't they just host it on their own server?

32 Name: Anonymous : 2017-08-20 17:15

Little to no DDoS protection, CloudFlare dropped their support as well. Also if they were going to have their own server they'd have to have it at their house, right? I don't know much about what it would take to host your own server.

33 Name: Anonymous : 2017-08-20 20:07

There are plenty of server hosts who will take them. This is nothing new, pedos discussion forums used to be common on tlds like .com until they got done the same way. There are plenty of ways around it already but it all costs a lot. Cloudfare is so scaled it is much cheaper than comparative protection I believe. But there are solutions because this has been going on for years.

34 Name: Anonymous : 2017-08-20 22:08

Apparently, they are switching to a tor hidden service, and now even the tor project decided to go full SJW and is trying to find a way to get TDS off the Internet.

>People who think they are doing a good service by running tor routers are literally helping spread violent hate speech

Was that written by a Chinese communist party official pretending to be a braindead Marxist? The answer is, as always, yes.

36 Name: Anonymous : 2017-08-21 18:54

That ticket was rejected because it was considered censorship. Like that one person stated, it's funny that the ticket opener opened it in response to TDS moving to TOR instead of the child porn already present on TOR. Fairly sure that the ticket opener doesn't operate a TOR node and just wants to remove TDS.

Fairly sure it is a Chinese stoking conflict so that the anonymous/uncensored internet concept gets put to bed in the USA.

Wow so deep, it doesn't make even a lick of sense. Impressive.

What they should do is host it on a P2P network like ZeroNet or IPFS.
