Board look: Blue Moon Buun Futaba Headline Mercury Pseud0ch Toothpaste

Rcchan (19)

1 Name: Jeff : 2006-06-26 06:11 ID:kFvIw2nR

Yea, made a board due to a huge bandwidth and space upgrade to my hosting. Might as well open up an image board to make sure the space and bandwidth doesn't go to waste. :3

We're new, but with support we could get up to a tolerable level of activity.

Anyways, here you go: http://rcchan.net

10 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-06-27 10:08 ID:ihPVfP2b

If you really want to host an imageboard, you could always link it into 4chan - they're easily the biggest and the strain definitely shows.

Just a suggestion.

11 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-06-27 11:44 ID:Heaven

"Link it into"?

12 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-06-27 16:05 ID:zwhBBm3Q

4chan doesn't do that. Wakachan does.

13 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-06-28 00:13 ID:Heaven

>>12
Provided there's something worth linking, of course.

Boards are becoming a dime a dozen, and most of it is stupidly redundant. It's one thing to have three boards of the same material, it's another to have dozens. I totally agree with >>4.

14 Name: Jeff : 2006-06-28 05:31 ID:kFvIw2nR

Well, I've created a stfu/gtfo image board. I don't think that's ever been done before.

15 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-06-28 11:33 ID:Heaven

Megaman and Cosby are good concepts...

But it's completely impossible to take the Megaman board seriously with that background

16 Name: Jeff : 2006-06-28 22:12 ID:kFvIw2nR

Well, I changed the megaman board to look like the others since it was making even me dizzy, but I'm also starting to put up somewhat original boards. Like Engrish, and Pwned/Owned Images. More ideas would be much appreciated. ^.^

17 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-06-29 12:33 ID:Heaven

>>14
that's called /b/. gtfo

18 Name: Jeff : 2006-07-02 05:09 ID:kFvIw2nR

Well, even with that being the case it'd be nice to have the images all in one place. Also added mario board which seems to be getting alot of attention and nostalgia.

19 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-07-02 21:48 ID:Heaven

Yes, if they are all in one place, it's much easier to BLOW THEM ALL UP.

Dreamhost (9)

1 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-06-17 17:24 ID:mvTh1lmX

Simply put: are they any good?

2 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-06-18 02:23 ID:aGNmGGrd

Well, I haven't had problems with them, but it kind of depends on what you want. I just have a personal site, which a gallery and stuff.

I know there was problems before with peoples sites getting shut down for going over the cpu minute limit, but they recently did away with that. As long as your site isn't causing problems with others then its all good.

But really, it depends on your needs and what you consider to be good service. They have a 97-day money back guarantee, so you should just try them and see if you like them.

One thing I really love about them is that they increase your webspace and bandwidth every week.

I currently have:
74100 MB Disk space
2041 GB BW per Cycle

3 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-06-18 03:44 ID:mvTh1lmX

Well, I went ahead and bought an account:

20gb space
1tb bandwidth
Unlimited DBs, domains and subdomains
3000 e-mail accounts
75 shell/FTP users

..All for £60 p/a.

Dreamhost has quite a bang for the buck, and is a good host overall.

Just don't expect them to help you overmuch. If you need support or really cannot afford downtime, you'll need to use a more expensive host.

Have vast armies of anonymous people wade through crap, rating on it and reviewing it. Look at things they rate highly. Occasionally rate and review unrated things (i.e. wade through crap) in order to give back.

I THINK THAT EVERYONE SHOULD REGISTER BY IP ADDY!

42 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-05-23 03:25 ID:Heaven

Yeah, that's a great idea! Then people behind an office/school NAT would all look like the same person. And people dialing up for Internet access would be like 942 different people. What a brilliant idea!

43 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-05-23 05:33 ID:Heaven

>>40
I don't know. Look at the ratings on Amazon, or moderation on Slashdot-alike sites. Based on that, I have almost no faith in the rating abilities of people.

Then there's the problem of ballot stuffing. If you're truly anonymous, there's no way to prevent it. Trolls will have a field day, while normal people will be too lazy.

I think the Japanese have beaten us to an ideal Anonymous system. It has its problems, but you're not going to get much better. Ratings are overrated.

44 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-05-23 12:07 ID:AVmoH452

>>43

What you should do is to not assign any objective value to ratings, but have a system that compares your own ratings to those and others, and bias other's ratings by how well they match yours. That should give a much better result than an absolute scale.

However, it might very well just breed uniformity, in that you would only ever be recommended things you already like, and never anything new and challenging.

45 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-05-24 01:40 ID:Heaven

>>44
An interesting idea, but exceptionally expensive. A naive implementation would intractable, and I doubt you'll find anything better.

There's also the problem of how the system will track users. IP and cookies are too unreliable to build a history like this.

It's a voting system ("MoeCountSystem").

Click the "GJ" button on the reply pages to vote for a picture.

High-rated pictures are marked with big red text and added to a special gallery. Click [GJカウント殿堂ギャラリー] in the top corner to browse it (with no thumbnails...).

Were you expecting it to be capcodes?

Having to register, as simple as it might be, is definitely a stopper for me.

Portal of Evil (3)

1 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-06-12 02:54 ID:HKLLo1J4

I've been lurking at PoE (and later PoE-news when that started) on and off for around 6-7 years. It's one of my favorite things about the internet: I like the fact that they don't go out and harass the sites they make fun of, and that the posters seem to be more mature than those of other forums.

That's the short version of why I like it. I know people who really, really hate that site. What's your opinions on it?

2 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-06-12 16:40 ID:Heaven

On what?

3 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-06-13 12:54 ID:Heaven

Exchanging emails in an anonymous community (5)

1 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-06-08 12:58 ID:Heaven

Hello, all.

I'm considering writing and/or modifying some anonymous message board software for a possible project of mine.

My question is this: What would be the best way to have it so that two anonymous people could exchange emails with each other, if they wanted to?

I thought about making it so the message containing the email can only by people of a certian tripcode... but that would turn out too similar to, say, phpbb's PM system.

Live chat would work... but that would be live chat, and wouldn't be part of the image board anymore, really. And it would be hell to program and require both people to be on at the same time.

I also considered linking it to posting IP, but IPs change and whatnot.

...any suggestions?

2 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-06-08 21:50 ID:uxd2M31w

A field titled "E-mail" or "Link" next to the name field

3 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-06-08 23:24 ID:2bUUYVzi

Just set up your server as the router between them, based on the (hidden) email they put in the field. All communication will go through this setup.

4 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-06-09 03:07 ID:Heaven

actually, yeah, that's a good idea.

I'll probably go with that, as the idea I came up with would have been more complicated.

5 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-06-09 15:50 ID:NhJxCpN5

  1. Get servers.
  2. Plug servers into intarweb.
  3. Fadonk the shit out of the servers (like atleast 60-70, wet ones too).
  4. ?????
  5. Instantly everything you want will come to be on the servers as well as a huge 50gbit line and upgraded servers.

Where to sign up for spam? (29)

There are so much "anti-spam" stuff these days to "prevent" spam. But where does one go to sign up for spam anyway?

20 Name: 404 - Name Not Found 2006-01-25 20:03 ID:Heaven

btw, lemonparty.org and www.lemonparty.org are both mapped to 127.0.0.0 in my hosts file, so tinyurl wouldn't have done any good.

24 Name: 404 - Name Not Found 2006-02-15 22:08 ID:aOuvbE2n

>>23
I didn't, I downloaded some premade hosts file that has lots of ad sites mapped to 127.0.0.1, and apparently it also includes lemonparty.org. (I made them all point to 127.0.0.0, instead, for faster loading, as that seems to fail instantly.)

Usually when I browse the web on a computer that doesn't have such a hosts file, these days, I am amazed at all the obnoxious ads I see...

You can also call them "party poopers".

[Idea] Automatic user accounts [Web Apps] (5)

1 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-04-29 21:49 ID:6g+k94af

For a web application that needs to store user-specific information -- for example, your favorite bookmarks -- the site could automatically create an "account" for each new user the first time they access it, identified only by a unique cookie saved. Later, if they wanted to, users could associate that unique value with a username and password to be able to use the site from other browsers and machines.

That way no registration or other nonsense would be required to start using the site. That might mean more people would try it.

For "Oops, I accidentally wasn't logged in" situations, the site could also allow merging your transient cookie-based account with an existing account, provided you know the username and password of the latter.

What do the other Anonymouses on the internet think of this idea? Personally, I'd be much more likely to use del.icio.us, Digg, etc. -- or at least try them -- if they worked this way. (I haven't used any Web 2.0 type sites.)

2 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-04-30 02:49 ID:PARKSo+O

Most people are lazy, they won't register at all if it works right out of the box. Then they complain when they lose all their transient data because their tech-savvy college kid decides to clear the cache.

Also, the one time you need the functionality provided by a registered account (remote access to your local bookmarks from another computer) is the one time you can't get to your local data anyway.

I think it's better the way things are...

3 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-04-30 17:54 ID:Heaven

yeah, but it would like, prominently say "hey dude, you should register so you don't lose your data." i think people would do that.

4 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-05-04 10:03 ID:Heaven

I like this idea. It would save me needing to mess about registering accounts at sites I mean to use once and exactly once and never return to (and save the site owner a few hundred bytes of database space once the transient data expires).

Specific vs. generic boards (2)

What is more successful? Are the hobbies and literature boards to generic? Would perhaps sports and pocket books be better?

Would Language be as trafficated as 日本語 if 日本語 didn't exist?

2 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-04-28 03:57 ID:Heaven

Depends on how much traffic each board gets (or that one would think it would get.)

Hobbies and literature rach hardly get any traffic, so I think they're fine.

And yep, I think language would be as trafficated as 日本語 if 日本語 didn't exist. There' s a good example of what does need (and has) another board.

If sometime in the future, a certain hobby or type of literature started dominating a certain board (or 4-ch got to even 1/50 of 2ch, when a few different sub-categories would be needed for each category), I would say there was reason for more specific categories.
