>>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.
