Let's talk about promoting. (18)

1 Name: Anonymous 2005-11-11 09:20 ID:XjS3B4v0

Well, 4-ch is getting bigger. I'm noticing more activity and it's been great!

However, I find it odd we don't have any real thread here for discussing how to make the site grow. Not better, but bigger.
I've done some small things. It's in my away message that I have up 24/7, on some random (good) image boards I've used it as my email url, and other small things like that.

However, we need a way to really get our name out. I think that this can be done two ways:

1) Some huge thing that makes us popular almost instantly. Good luck.

2) Doing what I've been doing - promoting not obnoxiously, and very slowly. I like this approach if more people do it. I almost considered using the site as my email url on 4chan for awhile, but I want squeeks permission, because... 4chan + BBS = world4ch, and I don't want this to turn into that... Then again, I'd use it on boards that aren't /b/, and get more than joke posters. Also, my website will be going up soon, and I feel that it has serious potential. Of course, I'll link to 4-ch, as the target audience is the same, and we could get quality posters.

What other small things can we do to get bigger?

Or, for that matter, what big things can we do?
I know this has been discussed in other threads, but I don't see one dedicated to it.

So, let's hear your ideas!

I like 2). I feel that if 4-ch is overly promoted and grows too quickly, it will soon suck. (I've been noticing more trolling and garbage lately.)

I think 4chan/b/ has been flaky, and wtfux died, so...

In all honesty, I'm not really focused on actively making this site more dense with people. However, that's not to say I wouldn't like it. Yes this site could use more traffic. Yes this site is increasing in traffic daily.

My main focus at the moment however is trying to get the site to work better, both in looks and functionality. At the moment it's just a bunch of random scripts slapped together, with pages that only seem to look right on minority browsers. 4-ch being a site with fast, minimalist code that works together, front end appearences with colours/themes that are consistent and a configuration that allows for rapid expansion and future development is what I want first, before thousands more users.

I feel however, nobody really wishes to support me in this :(

It's the 2ch way.

I'll write the url in my note, then call a press confrence and blow myself up.

>>1 -- #2 seems like the way most worthy sites got big and stayed big.

Streaking major sporting events with the URL painted on your backside seems like a much safer alternative. Unless, of course, it follows a major wardrobe malfunction, in which case you'd get no notice at all.

Join me, and together we can restore order to the galaxy! (Ahem, pardon me, frog in my throat left over from a cold.) Seriously, though, I don't know how much help I could be (or if I'd be a hinderance instead), but I've been watching my own almost-ready kareha-based board spawn visitors and mentions from out of the blue. If you want my help, I'm willing. I don't know much perl specifically, but I do know HTML4, most of XHTML 1.0, CSS 1&2, PHP, C, and structured programming theory. Do you have a sandbox board set up here? It'd be much safer and probably faster to tweak that to your liking, then copy the changes out to your live boards.

I used to have a board setup, however with what's been going on recently, I deleted it. hmm. The kind of stuff I need help dealing with is:

  • Apache 2
  • mod_perl and/or Perl/CGI
  • XML, HTML, CSS etc

At the moment I'm bogged down with work and building a website for a client (worth a couple of thousand bucks at least), so when I'm done with that, if nobody helps, then I'll do it all myself. I don't have University for another 3 months, so I've got some time to do something with this site.

I can't imagine this place growing while there are retards who wants no one to use names and attacks people who uses names.

11 Name: Anonymous 2005-12-12 06:24 ID:nkMnKw69

There will always be people like that. It's not something you can avoid.

Really, I don't want people to use names either. I'd prefer it if everyone didn't.

o lawd. i was calling your type retards. without hesitation if you bully people into not using names. i don't care about people using names one way or the other.

14 Name: 10 2005-12-18 17:29 ID:Heaven

maybe i would like people not using names a bit more but i don't attack and insult people for using names and call not using names a tradition or custom around these parts of the internet.

I think it's good if people develop a hard-set belief about it. It will counteract the anti-Anonymous hatred in other places.

Let's celebrate 4-ch.net getting into the top 1,000,000 websites on a heavily biased, spyware dependent ranking system.

Extremist for extremist?

Stupidest thing I've heard in a while. What about the silent majority?

They can stay silent.
