>What is 4-ch?

4-ch is a website for anonymous discussion on a variety of topics. The site was started November 1st 2004, and hasn't died yet. Originally I classed it as a mere "experiment" to see how the English speaking *chan community would react, at the time I was unaware of world2ch. Now however it's a lot more than that, and hopefully one day we can become some kind of active community or "place" where communication can occour where names aren't required.

> How do you pronounce the name?

I never could work that out. I guess "Channel 4" could be one way as this tries to stop any silly "4chan" confusion.

> Why not 4ch.net?

NTT Inc. (the company that hosts 2ch) owns the domain, to try and fend off rip-offs. I would like the domain, I don't think I'm going to get it.

> Who are the admins?

I'm the only admin of the site. One techie looks after the server. "Moderators" however, it's up to them to disclose their identities, however most of them prefer to be anonymous. We have 5 moderators, only 3 of them actually do anything. WAHa has moderator powers, but then again, he does look after the boards when he's not lazy in case of breakdowns or any other code-related issues.

> Is it really Anonymous?

Answer that simply: Yes. You are under no obligation to provide your name to us when you post. If you wish to hide your "ID", fill the "Link" field with anything. A single space character is enough. Webserver logs are purged weekly. Moderators can't see your IP address. Only I can, and it takes quite a bit of messing around.

If you have any more questions that you want me to answer or something, fire away and age the thread.
