Why is this board so unpopular? (68)

[see title]

No, but the facts remain the facts. And the facts of this matter are that 4ct is horrible.

20 Name: Anonymage : 2017-07-23 23:02 [Del]

Wow if that's the case then what can we do? Lobby for the conversion of all imageboards to textboards? We must save textboards from the dark well-like pit of total and utter obscurity.

21 Name: Anonymage : 2017-07-24 05:52 [Del]

It's better to die in obscurity than flail obnoxiously on your death bed.

22 Name: Anonymage : 2017-08-17 02:05 [Del]

Looks like 4ct's down.

Still waiting for an imageboard that just doesn't allow for image posting. Textboard software just isn't as polished as imageboards. It's a shame, really. Maybe one day some enthusiastic guy will actually create a non-picure imageboard.

28 Name: Anonymage : 2017-09-27 16:36 [Del]

You know it's possible to simply disable images in vichan, right? Don't let anyone post any image. Is that what you want?

It looks ugly.

31 Name: Anonymage : 2017-11-08 05:51 [Del]

I like it

32 Name: Anonymage : 2017-11-08 19:01 [Del]

Probably because there isn't any porn here.

33 Name: Anonymage : 2017-11-16 12:18 [Del]

Then let's make some.

34 Name: Anonymage : 2017-11-16 16:52 [Del]

It's getting more active recently.

35 Name: Anonymage : 2018-07-15 18:59 [Del]

All the cool text-based fun is happening on the Gopher network.

I wish it was more popular. Sure you can browse wizchan with no images but somehow it's not the same thing. It doesn't manage to carry the same mood of this place even though browsing it with no images makes it effectively a textboard. I think this board's content is really separate from the ib culture we have in wizchan.I think that's what it is. Wizchan has become a battlefield of forces I really don't relate to one bit. All the talk about crabs, true wiz, politics and there's always someone lurking to start an argument over something stupid but harmless someone posted. Just because it's an easy argument to attack. I've seen plenty of that. You have some guy posting something silly and gets immediately jumped by some other person taking the post very seriously and trying to start an argument from it. Even glancing through that sort of shit is exhausting, I can't image how people have the energy to actually write and post a reply over something harmless and silly. And that's on Wizchan, a place filled with low energy individuals supposedly. I guess many people here are not exactly low energy, they just use their energy in all the wrong ways but that's for another topic.

But yeah it's pretty sad this place is not more active. I don't think there's much one can do about, like others pointed out textboards really didn't take off on this side of the pond. I think the possibility of replying to content with one image as a reaction made ibs very attractive and at the same time very shitty. I just wish I had somewhere to go online to read interesting, introspective posts all day long if I feel like it. Posts like that seem to appear once in a blue moon.

Wizchan has way, way fewer images than every other board I've seen, it's so close to a textboard that not much reason is there to go here. It also has three major general boards and the textboard is general too. The textboard can likely have a renaissance if it replaces one of the other boards or becomes more topical, with literature and writing as the most obvious option.

38 Name: Anonymage : 2018-10-31 19:51 [Del]

Literally the only reason I don't use the text board is it is way the site is formatted makes it really a pain in my eyes to follow whats going on.

39 Name: Anonymage : 2018-11-01 00:48 [Del]

Board look: Futaba

40 Name: Anonymage : 2018-11-01 02:59 [Del]

Still looks bad.

41 Name: Anonymage : 2019-05-09 21:21 [Del]

First time posting here and looks pretty good: no normie posts, shit posting, trolls, etc. It's definitely worthy.

42 Name: Anonymage : 2019-05-20 15:45 [Del]


>He thinks there aren't any shitposters here

Cringe and bluepilled, you collosal faggot

43 Name: Anonymage : 2019-05-20 22:49 [Del]

I think I'll start getting on here more, here's my first post.

44 Name: Anonymage : 2019-05-21 05:09 [Del]

Don’t expect too much.

45 Name: Anonymage : 2019-05-21 06:30 [Del]

I'm not, but I have nothing better to do with my time or life.

46 Name: Anonymage : 2019-06-14 00:50 [Del]

I think this place could kick off if the line width was less, the font was one of those fonts made for dyslexic people, a better color palette with higher contrast was chosen, and more empty space between posts/reply boxes/other elements was placed in. As it is, this feels very cluttered and hard to read.

47 Name: Anonymage : 2019-06-14 00:51 [Del]

Also, if these posts showed up on /all/.

Because it's not something that all of the "newfriends" would be into. Most of the people who would be a part of these boards still have moved onto different things in their lives. Those who actually lurk or use textboards are a dying breed. It's also I believe more common in those who were more familiar in the older days of the internet such as the '90s or maybe even the early '00s.

61 Name: Anonymage : 2019-09-11 15:41 [Del]

I think the layout is to blame. The formatting is just much worse than the rest of the site, especially quoted text. Additionally it's put apart from the other boards on the main wizchan page so it's easy to miss.

62 Name: Anonymage : 2019-09-14 02:12 [Del]

I agree. The site structure is neither retro-shique or functionally modern. It's better than other textboards I've seen though.

63 Name: Anonymage : 2019-09-14 08:39 [Del]

I don't know, it does have a very Web 1.0 feel to it.

Not enough people interested and active to develop good group dynamics, I reckon.
