Should we advertise 22chan? Where? How?
Post what you think
Also post slogans, pics, anything related

 No.941[D][DF]

OP here, here's my take:
Personally I think we should advertise. More posters brings more activity and more interesting things imo. Also we have good enough moderation to withstand a few idiots
The most obvious place would be the alt-chans that 1. are compatible with ours at least somewhat 2. have an appropriate thread (like one dedicated to other alt-chans)
I think though that rather than just dumping the link, we should have a brief phrase to describe what 22chan is. Like, that porn/normalfaggotry is banned, that we value effort and appreciate old 4chan culture. Some sort of slogan(s)
I have some other ideas, like, making oc with a link/reference to 22chan in it somewhere (not too obnoxious though). Another one could be to advertise inside the threads on 4chan which cry about how they hate new 4chan and how old 4chan was better
Of course being reasonable with this is very important

agree, we need to show respect

 No.943[D][DF]

>>942
Yeah. Actually I was thinking it might be fair to allow one thread here for advertising of other chans, since we use those threads on other chans
Anyway, you got any ideas for slogans? or whatever

 No.946[D][DF]

>>943
I like the idea of a dedicated advertisement thread, maybe a sticky in /sg/ or something

 No.947[D][DF]

>>940
i dont think we should directly advertise, i think we should hide little crumbs of our culture here and there so that people that actually call about imageboard culture will find this place

also some diplomacy with the other alt chans that align with our values would be beneficial

 No.948[D][DF]

>>947
>i think we should hide little crumbs of our culture here and there
Sounds interesting, what do you mean?
I do get why you'd rather not advertise, I just couldn't really think of a good alternative myself

 No.952[D][DF]

>>941
>I think we should advertise.
We agree with you guys on this, although things are slightly stable at the moment, we are going through a rough patch. What The Staff doesn't agree with is some of the reckless ideas thrown out that can impact our reputation if not effect us terribly in the future. i'll elaborate as i repond to every post. As it is, (sorry for being harsh) But it is desperate to have anons organizing on the site to help spread the gospel of 22chan. Better to advertise by your own volition.
>More posters brings more activity and interesting things imo.
Overexposure and too many posters can also harm us like it harmed 4chan. Remember, quality over quantity! Be careful to not advertise too much. Also remember that advertising on other imageboards kinda kills them off and prevents them from devloping their own culture.
>Also we have good enough moderation to withstand a few idiots
Yes and no. There are plenty of ways people can be disruptive, but in a way where they avoid breaking the rules. We can't ban people like that just because they are disruptive or generally unliked by other anons. Not unless they break the rules otherwise we would be no better them 4chan. So think hard if places that you advertise have the right anons or great staff members that's fine with the advertisements. If you don't want disruptive people, either don't advertise or think real hard how and where you do it. People can raid, Pretend to be 22channers and act uncouth to slowly tear our imageboard apart or even become a staff member to either take control of 22chan, or yes, kill our imageboard. Not exactly "a few idiots".
>The most obvious place would be the alt-chans that
Leave advertising on alt-chans to us. Or better yet, don't do it at all. We can't trust the users of other altchans, nor their staff, and there's some really awful altchans with awful people that you may think are nice, but on the inside are cruel. We don't want attention from those people even if you guys like them
> are compatible with ours at least somewhat
Even if it looks like it's "compatible" to you, it may not be to us
2. have an appropriate thread (like one dedicated to other alt-chans)
What do you mean? like a thread that bypasses the no advertising rule? Or for a thread that allows discussion about how to advertise in a proper way? Bypassing the no advertising rule is not a wise idea, people might be more interested in the altchan on the list then 22chan itself. No means no when it comes down to breaking rules. Also making a thread on how to advertise 22chan seems a bit desperate.
>I think though that rather than just dumping the link, we should have a brief phrase to describe what 22chan is. Like, that porn/normalfaggotry is banned, that we value effort and appreciate old 4chan culture.
Very smart, Advertising like that on 4chan is great, just don't oversell it, try to be realistic as to who we are and how we are currently doing too. We aren't too perfect nor some outer heaven, but we try to be, and stick to our rules, morals and beliefs. We also aren't some nostalga board, liking old 4chan culture is a well loved aspect of our society. But yeah, also explaining the rules and how we are trying to be "cancer free" and how we try to avoid the past mistakes of 4chan is a pretty good idea you have there.
>Some sort of slogan(s)
Sounds a bit cheesy, and like your overselling 22chan. people might not like or be interested in an imageboard like that. or at least that's my opinion.
>I have some other ideas, like, making oc with a link/reference to 22chan in it somewhere (not too obnoxious though).
sounds ok, just dont do it too much
Also, only when the situation calls for it, sometimes a quick
>"there's an imageboard that you might be interested in called 22chan (insert reasons why they might like 22chan here)"
does the trick.
>Another one could be to advertise inside the threads on 4chan which cry about how they hate new 4chan and how old 4chan was better
Of course being reasonable with this is very important
Yeah, sounds good. Also threads when people generally ask for altchans as so long as it isn't in a board like /lgbt/ or whatever.

CAT always speaks the TRUTH, there are no exceptions.
>>943
>allow one thread for the advertising for other chans
no
>use those threads on other chans
Yeah, we advertised on several lovely imageboards that had a thread of a similar nature a while back.
>>947
>i dont think we should directly advertise, i think we should hide little crumbs of our culture here and there so that people that actually call about imageboard culture will find this place
That sounds nice. We pretty much got our name out there in the altchan world, and even got posted on some altchan lists. We'll probably get several people who check those out and find our board because of it.
>also some diplomacy with the other alt chans that align with our values would be beneficial
Same thing i said about advertising on alt-chans applies here. It's pandoras box, The staff including twoot aren't keen on opening it up. Even if we do trust the altchan, it would invite their issues that they are dealing with, infighting, and whatever else. we are better off being lone wolves, generally unoticed in the grand scale of things. quietly building up our userbase and culture by ourselves without the influence of other altchans or groups.
I forgot to mention that we met a board on some altchan back in the day who happened to be populated with nice people who we can trust, They had advertised but said they where sorry for doing so. we had a chit-chat with one of the guys running it and they liked our rules and what we where doing with our imageboard. Gave us some good advice. I guess you can call them an "acquaintance"of ours. and that's pretty much the extent to our relationship with them.
Another thing you guys can do is to advertise via word of mouth, tell any friends or whoever you know that won't try to do anything stupid to check 22chan out.

Thanks a lot for the detailed response
>some of the reckless ideas thrown out that can impact our reputation
>it is desperate to have anons organizing on the site to help spread the gospel of 22chan
I see. I hadn't thought of that, I'm sorry
>Better to advertise by your own volition
Makes sense
>Bypassing the no advertising rule is not a wise idea, people might be more interested in the altchan on the list then 22chan itself
I don't really see it that way, but whatever. I thought it would've been a way to show respect to other chans, since we, as you said, advertised in such threads before
>sounds ok, just dont do it too much
Now that I think about it the oc idea isn't that great either, watermarks are lame and I don't really know how to do it otherwise
So yeah, I'm interested in >>947 elaborating, but anyway that's basically it for me. I don't exactly have friends or places I visit to advertise 22chan on

 No.955[D][DF]

>>954
> I'm interested in >>947 elaborating
well i sorta mean similar to the whole oc thing, i know you said water marks suck and i dont think they're a good idea either so not that.
the idea should be that if we leave the right crumbs then experienced chan users and people with reverence for the culture will be able to follow them here

for example only people who are familiar with m00ts early presence will pick up on us saying "its 11 times better"
(in reference to a post he made saying his 4chan will be twice as good as 2chan)

also mentions of our characters
(sewer-chan, zwoot, gator/spider/carp/otter gang ect)
will create a sort of chain in peoples minds when they start noticing them here and there

a big risk with this strat is that it might end up with our culture being some what appropriated by other communities, which will make us less distinct

Oh, I see

We do already occasionally advertise. We try to find dying altchans which have a similar user base or occasionally threads on 4chan which complain about the status of 4chan for example. We then casually advertise 22chan on those threads. When advertising 22chan you have to be careful to not bring in the wrong people. Advertising 22chan is a difficult job, so any help is appreciated, but you have to be careful to do it the right way. It can lead to cancer infecting us or show us in a wrong image.

Hell no.
The day this site gets popular is the day it dies.
