Topic: Lets shake things up a little, what do YOU want from us?


grey !C.MxxuCiTo started this discussion 6.5 years ago #953

So OTK gets allllll kinds of traffic, like 2000 hits a month. But very little posts, heck, I make the majority of threads. Everyone is allways ready to comment on threads but not starting threads so much. I thought maybe since TinyBBS is so diferent from more normal chan software that it makes people adverse to posting.

One idea that was posed to me was make a board with a rotating theme, and change the theme at certain intervals based on what you guys wish. Another is just turn the main board into a Kareha board. Less powerfull mobile devices would have a slower time browsing it but the majority of devices should be fine. Plus there's a addon for Kareha lets people read threads from mobile devices but you just can't post to them. Also Kareha lets you uploads basically any time of file. Only problem with that is that Kareha is written in Perl and Apache haet Perl.
Anywho, what do you want to see?

Seems normal to me. I would say that the number of posters is much lower than the total traffic it is a normal thing since many are just lurking or are bots. The number of bots doesn't increase proportionally with traffic so site 4chan actually have much more users than bots but on sites like here or small chans the bots number can be equal or even higher than humans. When I runned a site I used to thanks the humans and bots when I reach X number of hits.

This is actually very normal, considering most of those people are searching for a mobile imageboard, and the title is "OtakuTalk Mobile Imageboard".

> TinyBBS is different from more normal chan software.
But it's this that makes OTK special.
It's proven that good can come out of a script written, powered by, and designed for drama.

> makes users adverse from posting
Maybe a nice overhaul would be good... I read on the Tablecat board that people were reminded of AnonTalk with this board. Maybe Broseph was right, and TinyBBS and by extension any site using TinyBBS need to break away from the Kimmo stylesheet all together.

> Kareha
This is the part I'm most opposed to. Kareha is broken 50% of the time I used it, and the host I used was designed for Perl and Python etc.
Kareha and Wakaba are far over rated and it's only promoted because it's Perl. If you do end up making this an imageboard, I have a copy of Futallaby rigged to be a 4chan clone. (stickies, locked threads, efficient bans, and an admin panel. [Kind of bragging here. >_<] )

But it's your site. I'd be OK with almost anything.

1. Make it look friendlier with a little more anime themed images but allow minimalistic version for mobile browsing.
2. Allow posting videos like some chan sites.
3. I will post more ideas when I remember them

like, embedding?
personally I find embedded videos to be obnoxious and prone to slowing down the page load.

Toggling embedded videos could become an option in the Dashboard, though, could it not?
