>Welp.. I think the problem is that we don't know much about how the site's actual management. What the staff is doing, or your plans.
Feel free to ask any questions.
>For instance, is it bad to upload a lot of images for the server? I basically took the last time we spoke as "are you sure you need to post all that data" to mean diplomatically "dude you are posting tons of images for the server." So I eased off on posting images.
I don't really recall that, but I'm sure I'd mean something like that as a joke. We don't have much storage constraints.
>Another thing, I recall users were complaining that there were no mods around doing clean up of certain porn. I didn't see the offending posts, but I was hearing that basically they were left up for days and no one was around to mod.
As you can read on the frontpage, the site really depressed me so I rarely visited it, and nobody is dedicated enough to Nextchan to regularly moderate the entire site. Also the BO went offline in case of /polk/.
>What is really messing with us the users is we don't know much about the site's abilities. Say I want to invite new users here. They may ask "dude, can you post webm, put youtube embeds, gif, or flash" and frankly I don't know.
Again, what would you like to know? WEBM, youtube embeds are on the roadmap but not possible at the moment, Flash is a big no-no, but you can post GIFs.
>What about server security? That issue alone nuked a potential exodus.
I own the server now, and I take regular backups.
>Users who may want to use this site have no clue what is going on with it. I am not talking about sensitive details, but simply GENERAL information. Why promote or get people over here when as shitty as 8chan is getting shilled, this site can go down on us at any time for close to a week on end.
This is a legitimate issue. I am trying to keep the site up as much as I can and I haven't had as many problems with Blazechan as I did when the site was using Infinity Next.
>As utter shit as 4chan is, at least users know that they can post whatever they want data wise and the servers are going to be able to hack it like a champ.
Blazechan is designed to be easy on the resources so I think it can handle many people at once. Of course things like captcha are yet to be done, but that's not really hard work.
>Also what does this site offer that the other legacy chans don't? Like more freedom but with basic security of user data, and etc.
Blazechan was designed after Infinity Next with speed/efficiency in mind.
I am also thinking of componentizing it, so that it is possible to create alternative backends for it like NNTPchan or IPFS.
>Users are in the dark ALL the time here. I say it's one of the reason's no one uses the site.
I wish to be more open about this stuff. Once again, please ask away.
Thanks a lot guys.
