>> No.56962080

When solving any kind of problem, you first identify it. Obviously the main problem is that 4chan costs too much to run. Allegations of the validity of the statement aside, this is what we're facing.
So, what components of 4chan cost a lot?
Well, there are the number of requests (user requests a thread every so often, usually at least once a minute). Improving this would take some serious innovation, because moot and crew already took care of this when they released the 4chan API.

Then there are bandwidth troubles. We have too many users and it costs money to serve them all. We have a solution to this.

You'll cut traffic in half. Then it'll grow twice the size, effectively doing nothing.

All this "ban/close board" shit does nothing to help. How much overhead do you think it costs to run a board? A board costs as much as it is popular. If people won't browse /pol/ then they'll browse something else.

You're missing the point.
The reason Hiroshima is allowed to incite panic about operating costs in the first place is because we run an unsustainable model that allows him to incite panic.

If you change the dynamic of 4chan from "Buy more passes!" to "Donate your bandwidth, seed images and threads to the community!"

then it's literally impossible for Hiroshima to complain about operating costs, because it will become almost nothing.

And now you're missing the point, too.
I'll rephrase the statement.

Let's forget about whether 4chan is sustainable or not. Who the fuck cares.

If Hiroshima can incite panic about 4chan's sustainability, that means that there is a flaw in the business model.

In other words the business model is a failure in that it costs more than ``nothing" to run.
However, it is theoretically possible to reduce those costs to ``almost nothing" by using distributed hosting. Some examples are WebTorrents via WebRTC, and IPFS.

So, what happens if 4chan costs almost nothing to run, and Hiroshima incites panic anyway?
Boom. A contradiction. It should be impossible for Hiroshima to panic anybody, because 4chan would at that point cost almost nothing to run.

Around the same time, the anti-matome movement took place throughout 2channel, a controversial community development involving users protesting against "matome blogs" (まとめブログ?) specialising in summarising 2channel threads, which were taking away site traffic. Later it was revealed that the website was suffering from financial setbacks, and as a result, the chairman of N.T. Technologies (a key stakeholder of the website, and ex-US Army officer) Jim Watkins assumed full control over 2channel, stripping Nishimura of all power. In response, Nishimura created his own clone of 2channel at 2ch.sc, and organised a series of distributed denial of service attacks against 2channel.

I don't often make use of the archive, and I can't speak for others, but it seems to me that removing it would cut down on storage. Alternatively you could only host thumbnails instead of whole images to reduce bandwitch usage as well as adding specific criterion such as a reply quota for archiving.

High res photos are also generally unnecessary, imo, due to scaling. I'd be well in willing to assume the vast majority of users are using 1080 displays. That said image resolution scaling and actual resolution really should match until 4k has permeated the majority market share, and even then it's of questionable necessity.

>How Hiroyuki will sell 4chan data:

Step 1: Brazil Future Search will make a real-time search engine for 4chan text data only. They will forgo images because images are not important in data mining.
Step 2: The new 4chan search engine will provide data to Effyis (boardreader.com).
Step 3: Boardreader.com will add 4chan search to their board search.
Step 4: Effyis (boardreader.com) will provide a firehose of data to Hottolink (their parent company) to use in data mining.
Step 5: American companies will begin purchasing analytics data from Hottolink.
Step 6: There is no step 6, you have already had your data sold to the highest bidder.

forbid /gif/, force people to use .webm
reduce size limit for pictures
accept other formats, more lightweight with a good quality

bonus point said in a lot of threads : create a tool that convert the picture client side.

and a good thing would be to close some boards.
/gif/ is useless, people can go to /wsg/ for their ylyl and few shit that aren't nsfw, and they can find all the porn they want somewhere else for example.

For some boards, a better moderation would be a good thing and reduce the number of posts per day. In /g/ if we ban all buying advice threads and pointless bait threads it might turn it into a slow board, which would be nice. Other solution is to have a codecha.

Boards don't cost money to maintain. Stop being tech illiterate.

Its the people and the use of bandwidth. Slow boards like /ck/, /jp/, /x/ have very little bandwidth cost.

The high cost of bandwidth comes from the high file size downloads from high traffic boards. /a/, /b/, /v/, /pol/ for example probably takes quite a bit of bandwidth. The simplest and easiest fix is simply to limit the file size of still images to <300 KB and remove gif (replace with 2-3MB webm) that will more than suffice for a decent fix.

Other alternatives are increasing posting limits for high bandwidth boards like /pol/, /b/ doubling the time it takes to post each time per day. The counter resets after 12 hours of no post.

I have the only realistic solution, and I would be surprised if the majority of you fags even knew the site:
Bring back Not 4chan.
Put all the unsavoury-to-advertiser boards on not4chan. So /pol/, /b/ and the like.
Done. Worked before.

Not really done.
Turn all the porn boards in to textboards like /news/
ALL of them. /e/, /h/ and others too.
Image dump boards a shit.
Discussion and linking to the actual source will cut out the shit middlemen and the eventual "SAUCE?!??!?!" posts and people saying lurk more and them saying "no u" and repeat forever until they all get banned or the thread is ruined.
Hey look, instantly saved a fuckton of bandwidth.

Let's go further.
Ban /cel/ faggots from /hr/.
Wallpaper boards, not much you can do there, they are pretty harmless. But you could force them offsite if you wanted to, via textboard concept.
Delete /gif/ now. It has no purpose.
/gif/ is literally /hc/ and /b/ combined.
/hc/ is now a general porn textboard and /b/... well /b/.

/b/ is now a 1MB upload.
/b/ has no PNG upload. /b/ has no GIF upload. /b/ has no WEBM upload.
Anyone that posts on /b/ will have those features stalk them to every board for 3 days max since last page load.

Fuck off. Textboards have been on here before. /news/ was a decent compromise between textboards and imageboards and made sense for such a board.

Turns out it also makes a lot of sense for boards where most of the content in question is already neatly organised and named properly. (like porn sites, or hentai sites, or image galleries like boorus)

It's fucking pointless having the same god damn shit reposted every week when it exists in better and easier to find form OFF SITE.
Making these image dump boards discussion boards with OP-image allows you to easily find it based on image or text description.

Moot was always a shit kid drunk on power.

The whole reason for the Snacks fiasco was not the commonly held "lol he /r/ cp" bullshit, it was because moot was an ideasguy and had the patience of a 6 year old.
Snacks was asked to perform tasks only gods could, and only then at a struggle.
Menchi (shii) told moot he was taking advantage of him to try get him kicked out so he could take his place. (probably so he could turn 4chan in to his little weeb board that world2ch never was)

The rest of 4chan do care they just don't know it yet because they are part of the phone browsing generation. moot tried to remove /news/ (ancient /pol/) but the rest of the site just couldn't handle full blown real life nazis seeing jews behind everything spreading out on the entire site bringing /news/ with them. And their posts were of a such nature that you just couldn't delete them because they technically didn't violate any rules.

The problem with some /pol/ posters or well the ancient ones at least is that they actually did their research and brought up things normies thinks is unpleasant. Especially when the general contents of the information checks out but the conclusions are pure speculations and fantasies. It's enough to trigger normies that their little happy world might have other unpleasant dimensions so they react with fear and become more annoying than these nazis in the end.

More phone users are needed and good methods of reducing bandwidth and transfer to smaller devices. I bet there are fucks right now that are opening /hr/ files on their mobile.

This is why I told moot he was a fucking retard when he was whining over the 4chan API before it came out.
Templating can massively save on bandwidth use since you are only sending the website structure one time and are then populating it with a CSV, TSV, JSON or whatever file.
Couple years later the site was perfectly fine and profiting after the switch over from shitty static cached pages of the 90s web.

Sure, they'll be doing as much of that as possible.

The way moot handled MLP fags was the worst, most cowardly way possible, though.
Plus, he actively didn't force mods to ban their little asses off until they have bloody fingers.

Any attempts of moot to ban any shitty site-wide behaviour always caved because moot was a fucking idiot and told them to give up after only a week.

mootles has never been a strong willed person.
Very surprised he hasn't killed himself yet.
After the Max "you're the man now dog" Jew fucked him over with the first major 4chan rewrite and all of us were in that thread, I was so sure he would off himself.

Nobody cares about /b/ though.
/b/ went to shit after 2007 permanently.
Or, if you hate the Anonymous faggotry, 2006.

They are actively banned everywhere else in most threads.
But again, 4chan still doesn't have enough people to check content.
And from what I have seen, the moderation tools are pretty shitty on their own, no wonder moderation is such a pain.

One simple example is Mods being able to see popular posts which would help massively to find either shitposting, anger, CP or just another faggy get.
Being able to pull up any thread and have a threshold of more than 10 replies, you can be almost certain to find one of those qualities above.
2 buttons to cycle through quoted posts to find anything else.

Pro-active is barely a feature of the moderation. (if you ever idled the IRC over the years)
There is no incentive for it.
They literally do it for free.
As long as they do things occasionally, that's "good enough".

The mods need as much help as they can get. Janitors too.
But expecting realtime omnipresent moderation is fucking retarded.
People that reply to spam and shitposting deserve to be banned just as much as those doing said things.

/pol/ is an echo chamber of retardedness.
Don't even kid yourself.

All it is is /x/-tier shitposting, IT'S HAPPENING every fucking 5-7 threads and LEL TRUMP and other stupid shit.
/pol/ has been dead as a useful board for years now.
Especially the last couple years.
There is more difference in /pol/ the last 2 years than there was the first few years of 4chan and every year since then.
I check it every so often, but I eventually end up closing it due to the sheer amount of shitposting. It's honestly as bad as /a/ and /v/ is now. Very rarely are there threads of worth in any 3 of the boards.
/pol/ dindu nuffin.


However! I do agree with you.
No boards need to be deleted besides /gif/.
Just move all "unsavoury" boards to Not4chan for advertisers sake.
Lower bandwidth-raping boards ability to rape said bandwidth by making them /news/-like textboards with OP-only image posting. (all the image dump boads, which I use many of, but I am still in favor of this happening to them because it makes way more sense and cuts out a shitload of drama around dat sauce)
