It's no different than TC or MC. It's just built around MLP, not drama/trolling.

When talking about potential we have to define potential.

I consider the capacity of increasing it's userbase and stay functional as potential that said:


4chan

by these potential standarts 4chan have very little potential.

It already is HUGE so it can't grow much bigger and the fact that the number of user increased at absurd levels and the moderation team still is unpaid and very small if compared to the userbase.

How I think it could be improved: Improve moderation team, include board specific moderators, create niche boards to make popular boards less overcrowded. Sell ads per board.


iichan

iichan fails in oposite ways to 4chan. iichan have thousands of boards but very little userbase. All these boards just breaks their userbase in even smaller bits making it looks like if it have much less users than it really have.
How I think it could be improved: I don't think it can grow now. It had the chance when 4chan was dead and it had a lot of potential back them but now 4chan reached collossal dimensions maiking it hard for any similar chan grow.


7chan

7chan biggest mistake was in try to compete with 4chan. Once someone already is dominant over a market, unless you have something to back up, you don't start trying to beat it in its own territory. You have to expand on the laterals. Also their moderation doesn't seems to be nice...


ponychan

Based on the time it is up one can say that ponychan is very successful. It explored a niche and growed in it! Have good and active moderation team and a good userbase. The main problem here is that they are totally based on a specific cartoon and like that Lucky Star chan and that Ragnarok Online chan after the series end/fade it will have counted years of life.
How I think it could be improved: Try to create more non-pony related boards. People will focus on the pony boards for now but with time they might migrate to other boards so you can take advantage of the userbase even years latter after the show ends.

Just like 420chan have non-weed boards? Of course a lot of drugs discussion leak but on ponychan they should cool down when the fandom cool down too...

Yeah, I'd have to say most threads on 420chan just always come back to drugs.

But it's kind of derp to complain about it when it's called 420chan.

Yeah, but it end up making the chan unatractive to non-druggies.

The problem is not grow it self, it is growt management. 4chan have now over 9000 times more users but using basically the same software and moderation team of when it was an obscure nerd group.

Yeah, that makes sense, and it works for them. Though it would have worked for 4chan too if pretending to like "nerd things" didn't blow the fuck up and become hip all of a sudden.

Lucky Star board is dead and wouldn't be surprising considering it was a short anime that ended a long time ago. What is surprising is that there are still figures being made. You can see them in Japanese crane games quite often.

Konata was a proud otaku, so it kind of makes sense that she's a popular waifu. And Miyuki fits the whole shy-smart-girl-with-big-boobs market too.

Lucky star grew up. Even characters from spin offs have figures.

They made an animated series. This is why we have figures...

Anyway they are background characters from Lucky Star. While Konata is the otaku here the one who brings the money is the Otaku so we have different jokes like spending the money on otaku stuff and them having to save on food.
