PROMISEDCHAN
(name liable to future change)

There is a new imageboard-software concept in the works. Addressing the problem of powerful moderating positions being compromised and shitting up the board against the will of board communities and their established board culture.
(See: 4chan 8/b/, 8/pol/, 8/wx/ etc.)
>Nothing that isn't spam or illegal is deleted, ever. You can subscribe to different moderation teams (and bots) to have the shit filtered to your liking. There would be a default moderation team for each board but the default would change if the majority changed the moderators they subscribed to.
>To keep normies from freaking the fuck out a default profile of moderation subscriptions will be applied by default, the default moderation will be decided by an impartial algorithm that takes in to account the modoration most users in a board choose, weighting the chooses by activity.

Unfortunately there is a shortage of skilled /tech/anons who are willing to assist in the planning and development of this new imageboard concept, which is holding back development.

M8, I'm sorry to tell you this, but imageboards are kind of dead. There's too much cancer on 8ch for it to be saved, and cuckchan is long gone. Finalchan and other smaller communities are the last bastion, but even they'll fall eventually.

Raids. Now you'll say that default moderation won't matter much because there will be others and that's a fair point. However, default moderation will be defining the "face" of a community, how it's seen by outsiders and potential newfags.

Partially agree with >>1257 that anonymous imageboards as large hubs of communication are, indeed, a thing of the past. The good ones have become niches for various small groups to huddle together in, the bad ones an amalgamation of the worst anonymous culture had ever produced and the worst from social media.

The problem is that the cancer has reached critical mass. It's impossible to make a new imageboard, because once it becomes successful at all, it'll be swarmed by meme-spouting newfags.

OP HERE
good news and bad news.

>THE BAD NEWS

is that the lead guy for this project disappeared before this got past the planning stage. (doesnt matter because of the goods news)

>MORE BAD NEWS;

double cuckchan (8chan) got hacked (or at least it appears to have, it still might just be an april fools prank) and the original thread for the development is possibly deleted. However, this might not even matter because of the good news.

>THE GOOD NEWS

is that both developers of Blazechan and NNTPchan have expressed interest in incorporating this concept into their own imageboard softwares. With the possible loss of the original thread, there is presently no where to organize and group together for collaboration. I will make an effort to contact both developers to see which ones could use some help in accelerating the development/integration of the promisechan concept on their own imageboard softwares; and also where to go to assist in whatever ways you can, be it programming-coding-further planning and conceptual development. I am determined that this idea will reach it's final realization in one way or another. IT NEEDS TO HAPPEN, I BELIEVE THE FUTURE OF IMAGEBOARDS DEPEND ON IT.

I will make sure to keep you guys posted for any further updates- if I can keep track of all the places I spammed this.

I believe that I had accomplished quite the opposite. In the main thread we had new people coming in every other day or so offering whatever skills they had. There could have been a real productive development if the guy who was leading the conversation and planning did not fucking abandon us. Hopefully I will be able to draw back in all of those same people to concentrate on Blazechan which I am very optimistic about. The NNTPchan creator doesn't appear to understand that if you don't create a nice frontend for a site, that no one is going to fucking use it or modify it in the first place. People don't want to have to create userstyles or deal with CSS.

You're very clearly just as bad as hotwheels. You won't ban who needs to be banned so I expect your community to fall apart rapidly in the name of "traffic", just like 8ch. You'll have dealt our already fractured group another blow, putting yet another nail in its coffin. You don't know what you're doing, and you need to stop.

To be fair, the greentext in the OP are the exact words of the guy who was leading the concept. He very well could have been a newfag, but the "promisechan concept" torch is being passed onto either the NNTPchan dev or the Blazechan dev now so we don't have to worry about that. The primary idea is just the subscribeable USER-CREATED modteams

The general consensus in the main thread was that normalfags if anything need to be avoided. They were even suggesting dropping 'chan' altogether because that opens the site up to normalfag "channers". They were also planning on some kind of sad-panda block feature as well.

Now as for
>You won't ban who needs to be banned so I expect your community to fall apart rapidly in the name of "traffic", just like 8ch.
No website can survive a massive influx of normalfags period. The solution is having 'scarecrows' and obstacles to prevent them from coming to begin with. Pedos are a good 'scarecrow' group for keeping away normalfags, it was after the masonnigger banned them from 8chan in 2015 that the place began to seem safe and hospitable to normalfags. As for obstacles, either bringing it closer to the deep web or setting up a 'sad-panda' type security block would work too. I don't think this concept is as hopeless as you would like me to believe.

And that's downright retarded. This anti-normie thing is honestly idiotic. If you don't want a specific type of poster, remove them from the site. Remove their posts, ban them, et cetera. Creating a site through exclusivity is just going to make the site fall apart, especially with imageboards. Good luck actually getting a community in a time where imageboards in general are dying.

>No website can survive a massive influx of normalfags period.


False, next.

Idiotic, risky, and fucking retarded. Next.

No, it won't. It'll just kill the community.

>I don't think this concept is as hopeless as you would like me to believe.


This idea's fucking stupid. And anyone who believes in it is an edgy cunt who wants a safe-space for their edgy dark humor circlejerk. This isn't going to be for discussion, this isn't going to be so the community can actually be mature or grow. It's just so people can have their own echo chamber of how they're better than every other imageboard because they're under-the-radar and exclusive.

>Are you trying to suggest the modfaggotry isn't a problem?


It is, but allowing users to choose moderators isn't going to do any better. You're giving the reigns to the users who are just as fucking retarded as the owners. If you want to get rid of "modfaggotry" as you call it, the only way to 100% effectively get rid of it is to get rid of moderation all together. Which is also a shitty idea because it'll just lead to illegal shit, spam, and more.

Also to reiterate on what >>1310 said here:
>You'll have dealt our already fractured group another blow, putting yet another nail in its coffin.

This is a huge point that you don't understand, and by you, I mean literally everyone who is trying to come up with a new imageboard or a new imageboard software or a new imageboard idea. The community is already segmented and fragmented, creating another board will just fracture it more. Imageboards are a dying medium, and there's nothing you can do to save it, especially when you're coming up with ideas to make imageboards even more exclusive and repulsive to people.

So, in conclusion,

Stop being fucking retarded

I don't change my views for anyone, especially blackpilled fucks who want to drag everyone down into their nihilistic quick sand because it isn't enough that they have given up, they get their satisfaction from making everyone else give up to- further validating their shitty basic worldview. I would gladly point to the MANY posts in the thread where the sentiment was in fact the same, except the thread is deleted now because of the hack, so you're just going to have to take my word for it that these are not just fabricated for the sake of winning an argument on a Taiwanese statue-carving emporium.

I'm going to respond to you one last time and I'm done, because I'm starting to think that you've never had or been a part of a community that you cared for or wanted to preserve~ or something along those lines. I will follow up with what I mean as I make this post.
>This idea's fucking stupid. And anyone who believes in it is an edgy cunt who wants a safe-space for their edgy dark humor circlejerk. This isn't going to be for discussion, this isn't going to be so the community can actually be mature or grow.
You're absolutely right, only edgy cunt Germans could want a safe-space for their edgy german cultural and political circlejerk. They need to open the gates and allow out-group sandniggers to come in so their country can actually mature and grow :^) and have a violent clash of culture, and ideas.. "DISCUSSION". They couldn't possibly mature and grow from within themselves!.. Having a board culture with it's own distinct language and character makes it a hugbox!
>Imageboards are a dying medium, and there's nothing you can do to save it
You're exactly right, Imageboards as they are now ARE a dying medium, that I will not be able to save. Horse-drawn carriages were a dying medium of transportation too in a time when steampowered transportation was taking over. It was only after one decided to replace a component of the horse-drawn carriage- the horses- that carriages were able to make their own kind of revival in the invention of the internal-combustion-engine-drawn carriage: the automobile.
>especially when you're coming up with ideas to make imageboards even more exclusive and repulsive to people.
well I suppose this goes back to
>>>No website can survive a massive influx of normalfags period.

and
>If you don't want a specific type of poster, remove them from the site. Remove their posts, ban them, et cetera
You're in favor of solving problems when they arise, but not preventing them from happening in the first place. If I don't want a specific type of poster, why do they need to come to the site in the first place? Anyway it's not like it would be impossible to find the site as a normalfag, it would simply only be found by those who actually put in the effort, and maybe I'm only interested in talking with people who put effort into things, like their posts.
>Creating a site through exclusivity is just going to make the site fall apart, especially with imageboards.
>..It'll just kill the community.
Neat claim, but there's nothing backing it up, so I'm going to call bullshit.

>Imageboards are a dying medium, and there's nothing you can do to save it
The group is going to fade away and cease to exist anyway right? It's only a matter of time, what difference is it if I put another nail in the coffin when the corpse inside is dead anyway? I'm allowed to try and pull together as many anons from as many dead boards as I can to try and have one more attempt at having a homosexual pool party echo-chamber so we can enjoy the end together in good company until we are either drowned out by the normalfags again or we just fade away into obscurity anyway- like you said.

Regardless, I don't need to accept that this is the end, and no amount of name calling or attempts at discouraging me is going to stop me from trying. With that being established, I bid thee adieu, my blackpilled acquaintance.

I would think that if you like the way that a community is, that you would want to try and preserve it for as long as you can. Change is inevitable, but there is a difference between ORGANIC and FORCED change. If you are so against having safe-space echo chambers, what are you doing on this- or any imageboard anyway nowadays. Maybe you'd like me to to invite the double-cuckchan niggers over so they can help this place "mature and grow".

I'm not going to of course, to make that clear, because I have no problem with this or any other place having it's own board culture, or being an

I'm acting on general consensus faggot. Most people in the main thread want this concept- and they came from all the places that I spammed the OP (which included most of the alternative bunker boards like here, masterchan, NNTPchan, endchan, etc. etc. etc.

Whether or not your ebin oldfag buddies are going to join us or not doesn't concern me at all. Perhaps those that come from reading this thread will be the ones that you wanted out anyway. But even if that is not the case, that's up to THEM to make that call, not you.

Ever heard of nntpchan (from the overchan project)? It works on top of i2p or tor but has that feature builtin: each node duplicates the content from ALL other nodes, but also applies their own moderation on top, so most nodes remove CP but some are completely unfiltered. If nothing else this should serve as a good base for whatever you're building.
You might also want to look into distributed systems, like ipfs, eth, neo, maidsafe, etc. and build a user-weight moderation system on top of that.
