Exchanging emails in an anonymous community (5)

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?

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

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.

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.

  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.
