Community related questions
Here's some questions, some new, some old. some hidden, and even some asked in the open. Either way we've kinda sat on them or gave vague answers to no avail. And i fully understand it'll take time to answer these, changes aren't made overnight of course. and really, i just want this thread to just sit here and be discussed over time. Iron things out slowly.
1, Do we have a niche? Should we try and find one? What would it be? both "comfy" and "nostalga" are more or less aspects of this community then actual niches, if anything a good chunk of altchans adopted those as their niches already. 22chan needs to provide a seed of topics to discuss which will set the ambiance, and it has to relate to all the boards as a whole. an example is lainchan which uses serial experiment lain as their niche, and the aspects of their community is acting like a liberal redditor, and cyberpunk/hacker culture. (cats could be a niche but im not sure how it would be implemented or if it even is a good niche at all)
2, How can we be "Diffrent" or not just "Another altchan"? there's limitations to this question of course, twoots only one guy, and who knows what he can or cant do for the software aspect of that question. For some reason people get bored because they see us as some regular old "knockoff 4chan" altchan imageboard.
3, "Le epik oldfags" Or, Is it wise to adapt some of 4chan's culture, (like we do right now) or should we try to head in our own direction? is it bad to use 4chan's culture a bit too much, or even as a crutch or a placeholder for lack of a culture? we've been told that we're too young to fully understand what we are posting, some people get annoyed at when we discuss internet/meme philosophy a bit too
much, like sometimes we get stuck in a cycle thats hard to get out of, and there are better things to discuss. some people say we are a "nostalga site" or even get "old /b/ vibes" from us. in some cases, we've been even called "oldfag larpers''
4, "Windowshopping simulator" Or, What's stopping you from posting, or making threads? What can we do to fix that problem? One suggestion what was thrown out is this>start visiting and taking part into threads on other boards, don't just keep sitting in one board like /b/. And due to the whole site being so slow, you, anon, can probably even reply to several month old threads and posts to spark up the conversation.>In short, diversify your interests and actually start caring.>Just post, if your opinion is "not quality", then people will simply ignore it.>This is some sort of online-social-anxiety. >Don't worry, just post.>Don't be that guy who always sits there on his own, just watching and listening other people. >This is a place where you shouldn't be afraid of saying something wrong.>We are all anonymous.>That's the beauty of imageboards.
Is there any other suggestions to fix that problem? is what that anon said sounds right?
5, "Upboat downboat" Is based and redpilled, cringe and bluepilled overused, or normalfaggotry? do we generally avoid using those terms, or do we use a wordfilter to replace them (if it even is a problem at all)
It was discussed previously on a old /sg/ thread where OP said it's getting reddit-teir (back in 2019) and times changed, it's becoming used more and more in mainstream enviorments, it seems like r/4chan really helped spread it out to twitter and other environments.
