I was browsing the internet and I came across an archive of media from the early 2000's (http://users.rcn.com/waxmanfamily/
). In there was a file "The 4chan v5 bible" (https://u.nu/0-nm
I have a converted PDF mirrored at https://u.nu/igoq
). After reading it I had a realization. 4chan never got where it is today by pure luck and memes. There is a highly organized structure keeping everything in check. Nowadays they obviously hardly follow this document.
I study the design of websites. I know how they work technically, programmatically, and psychologically. Imageboards are by far the best form of online social network when done right. The anonymous nature of these sites allow users to be themselves without fear of judgement. Because of this new outspoken ideas are posted. The way threads are promoted through bumps promotes conversation on these ideas. The problem is when the board has too many users (such as most of the boards on 4chan). When threads are made every few minutes, people have to make more outrageous, troll, edgy posts for their thread to survive or just create a "general" (remind you of somewhere). The way to solve this is simply by adding new boards when a specific board gets to popular. For example: split tech into hardware and software systems.
Many imageboards die by making the wrong decisions don't let this be one. If things are done right, 22chan could become the next big thing, maybe even surpass 4chan.
I have much more things to say but would prefer to explain interactively... Twoot, we should talk, privately, in Discord.
Just to note I most likely made mistakes in this post.
tldr; 22chan could become the next roman empire, a digital nation!
PS. I only namefag on my important posts.
