New imageboard...?

1 2024-04-10 05:25

I made an imageboard because I was bored and thought it would be fun, but I don't know where to share it. I was thinking about sharing here, but I don't know if that's lame or if anyone from here would use it.

Is it a pure imageboard (100% images) in the same way that SchemeBBS is a pure textboard?

If you need others to drive you into running a forum, you don't do it.

4 2024-04-10 17:29

I dont't think I need other people to drive me to run it. I think it's cool in general, i just thought it would be neat spreading the word, but maybe word-of-mouth would be better? :p

Just drop the link already, we all know that's why you made this thread.

It's just a stock vichan instance, I bet within 3 months this link will be dead. I'll set a reminder for myself.

9 2024-04-12 01:04

I wanna add some stuff to make it more interesting, I'm just not yet sure. It started as just me trying to learn some back-end stuff, but I wanna see where it'll go. Still set the reminder though!

text effektz is the way to the future.

Scrolling marquee text, page view counters, webring shoutouts, and animated tiling backgrounds.

I can do these things. I'll add them eventually, been busy with some other unrelated junk

17 2024-04-23 14:37

lmao its ded now this thread is jut wasting space as expected

18 2024-04-24 15:24

if you're going to make an imageboard

19 2024-04-24 16:22 *

Since OP was quick to just use someone else's engine, he could have just used sbbs.
But he spawned a vichan and abandoned it.

20 2024-04-24 18:07 *

anyone posting a new imageboard here should atleast make their own software if not running an expert /prog/rider one like sbbs

21 2024-04-26 15:37

I'm still running it, not abandoned! To be honest, I'm still new to this so I've just been trying to see where it goes. If it dies, it dies, no hard feelings.
I feel like this would be really cool. At some point I would like to at least make my own fork of vichan. It definitely isn't the best, but with some expansion I think it could be less than shit kek

22 2024-04-26 16:33 *

I wish you good luck. You should make it a textboard instead, imageboards fucking suck.

23 2024-04-27 03:05

Thank you! I'll probably run SBBS on the site at some point.

24 2024-04-28 03:42

Textboards have the important value of being extremely simple and easy to use in low-power shitass machines. But unlike something like vichan someone can't just roll up, upload gigabytes of shit or even worse, gigabytes of illegal shit.
Hope you figure out how to run SBBS. afaik Scheme is available on even the oldest of linux distros so it shouldn't be any harder than setting up vichan.

25 2024-04-29 18:23


Honestly yeah, I originally *was* going to setup a textboard, but just don't have enough experience to use Scheme dangerously. Plus again, it was just a way to teach me PHP and this and that. It is more than likely that it will turn into a textboard eventually

26 2024-05-01 16:47

i prefer imageboards, but i get your point about textboards over imageboards. thinking about once i finish sicp and scheme forking sbbs and modifying it into an imageboard. feels like an easy project

27 2024-05-01 19:10 *

There's no way I'd run my own image board in any country where you can be liabale for images your users post. I'm pretty sure most US image boards are run by intelligence agencies for this reason.

28 2024-05-02 05:44 *

I never really considered this. That actually sounds horrible. For that reason, I will now be speed reading sicp and running SBBS now. Jokes aside, I really do want to use SBBS, but I'm too retarded. I tried to get it running a few days ago and it wasn't working right

29 2024-05-03 18:04

Images were a mistake

30 2024-05-04 19:21

this 100x

31 2024-05-05 15:59

Images allow the illiterate to enjoy erotica.

This is why possession laws need to be abolished next time we the people hang them high. There is no reason good enough to ban non commercial CP possession and distribution in light of glowniggers using it as a targeting laser to guide DOJ cruise missiles at political frienemies.

>>32 based schizo retard take

34 2024-07-05 04:00

shit died lmao

35 2024-07-06 23:19 *

Am programming a board, gotten a little further than would have expected. It's good therapy and not so hard to get something basic up. Had an idea to make some money off of it, but that seems pretty "out there" now.

36 2024-07-09 18:57 *

Threads don't bump, there's no paging, and posts are just escaped not parsed but got session-based signup/login and bans based on address and username. Also some CSS stolen from this site, and for some reason the timestamp is permanently set to ```2094-07-08T08:17:33.000000-05:00```. It's pretty comfortable overall.

37 2024-07-09 18:58 *

ahem. 2094-07-08T08:17:33.000000-05:00

38 2024-07-12 02:32

it's me again, 3 months later. it's dead.

39 2024-07-15 02:36
