Tell me what features you want to see on a new, improved Opchan.

I already have a big ol' list, and the platforms we're considering already do some things, but I want to hear your wildest imageboard fantasies.

I'm not really going to be addressing whether or not they're feasible here, but I am reading everything.

I think 4chan or the addons for it have that option, I see no reason why it wouldn't be a nice addition to people that just want to view content and not care about users, something I'm fine with.

Possible way to attract users: Convince the leadership of a small country to restrict all internet traffic within their borders so that operatorchan.org is the only website they can access.

I know this sounds unfeasible, but bear with me:
Some people will get around it (around 10% in the first week, but around 30% by the end of the first month), but it's bound to drive up the traffic by a little bit. If the country has a population of 500K, and 300K use the internet, we get a long-term bump of 210K users.

How much are 210K users worth?

I have a suggestion if this is still the place to do it.

I'm thinking that having the ability to click on a post's (poster's) ID and be directed to a View All Posts By <ID> page would be attractive.

Personally I think it's advantageous because if you implement this feature people can then very quickly have a list of everything a poster has said - that hasn't already expired, naturally. This I can, in my opinion, be a very useful and popular feature.
>> No. 110765 ID: 073845

That would be a useful tool for the user, not sure if it's feasible to work in to the site itself but that'd be a great add-on
>> No. 110811 ID: c01760
We're planning on sticking with LynxChan's thread-wise poster IDs, now. You'll be able to tell one OPERATOR apart from another within the context of a single thread, but the same OPERATOR will be assigned different poster IDs in different threads. This will allow a greater degree of anonymity for people who want it than we currently have here while avoiding the confusion inherent in trying to have a conversation with multiple anons without any kind of ID system.

But no seriously why the hell don't we have a public Random board?

The site has no traffic as it is and frankly the site just isn't goddamn funny.

Go ahead and ask me why; I'd love to give you my opinion on it.

But let's stick to nuts and bolts. You want traffic? Start a public random board where global rules apply. Forced anonymity and start off with two pages of thread keeping.

'Cause the site just isn't fucking lulzy.
>> No. 111059 ID: 13f512

that's kind of this board, but I see what you're getting at.

Not sure how this can be encouraged but I would like to see more dumbshit gunsmithing or cobbling of shit together. You know? Like people building shit and doing a shitty job or good job. Also more demeaning threads about women or jews like for venting. Or perhaps a seasonal thread where people kill shit during hunting season. Hey a guy can dream cant he?

I'd maybe be down for some stupid shit. I could do a followup to those flare gun firing actual ammo pics I did, still not going to chance a 12 gauge though. Not even sure on a 20 gauge. .410 was like shooting an airsoft gun so I think maybe there wouldn't be enough pressure to cause a major malfunction numbnuts but still don't want to chance it.

Also been thinking about doing an uber cheapo AR build, like see how cheap my incompetent ass can make one while it still functioning somewhat.

Also also someone way back when I mentioned I owned stormtrooper armor wondered how hard it actually is to shoot in especially aiming in the helmet. If there is some interest I could probably do something there.
>> No. 111592 ID: cb9940
Not a /sug/ for the new site per se, but can we move the We Did It Folks thread over in /n/ to /arch/?
>> No. 111593 ID: a083c4

yep it's there now
>> No. 111622 ID: c60044
So I just now saw this, but...

/w/ is locked and unlisted, but it's still there if you want to peruse old threads.

The latest version of LynxChan supports locked boards, so we may elect to keep the old locked boards around on the new site.

As per the usual, any discussion you'd like to have there you could just as easily have here.
>> No. 111695 ID: 1dec8f
Do we have a mobile app yet?

This is lowkey fucking painful.

It's like texting but after a couple lines you go blind and retarded.
>> No. 111697 ID: a083c4

the new site should be a bit better for mobile use.
>> No. 111701 ID: c60044
Well, there are plans to have the front end adapt itself to viewing on phones.

There's also an Android app for viewing LynxChan sites on phones, which supposedly works right now.

Really ought to be a readme in there somewhere...

Please avoid auto-redirecting to mobile site based on user agent or ip or other arsenuggetry. I suggest a link in the footer of every page somewhere, or right above where it says kusaba x 0.9.3 + serverload right now.

>> No. 111711 ID: 6797b5
The solution we want wouldn't require having a mobile site with a subdomain. Whether or not we can get it done is the big question, though.
>> No. 111971 ID: 8323be

So... How's that new site coming guys?
>> No. 111975 ID: a083c4

The sticking point is migrating the existing threads onto the new site. If we wanted to start over fresh, it would have been done months ago.

Stop chasing off normal users or no one will see your css except tumblerite btards, moron. There is no government department pathetic enough to spy on you.

Never thought I'd say this but bring serv back, swissguy and the other faggots have run this website so far into the ground it would take an act of God to dig it up.

how did you post this without getting a 500 error?

been gone from running this place for years

>and the other faggots have run this website so far into the ground it would take an act of God to dig it up
I don't disagree this place is dying and even the super sekrit board is pretty slow. I would like to see new features actually implemented and maybe its time to nuke /n/ completely.

And yet ever since Russia invaded Ukraine anything mildly critical of Russia on here has been met with a unceasing torrent of whining and off-topic "so what if Russia is funding the Taliban! you are lynching negroes!" distraction.

Waiting for site migration.
>> No. 112262 ID: 95b638
If we're migrating, archive /n/ but maybe don't create a new one?

There isn't enough traffic for /n/ to be its own board and it's basically /t/ at this point anyways.
>> No. 112308 ID: 5ec9bd
So if we are doing something like an old OPchan museum, how will it be organized and how will it be accessible?

This was all started in the patch thread but I guess continuing this convo here would get threads back on their respective rails.

What's a decent way to bring this website back to life?
>> No. 112732 ID: 336324

Well, one thing we haven't done is moved to the new software, mostly because there doesn't seem to be a good way to migrate the old content to the new site.

If everyone is ok with kind of starting fresh, I can see about maintaining this site (locked) as an archive for a period of time.

One big problem was no money for anything, which via patreon and patch sales we've pretty much fixed.
>> No. 112733 ID: 336324

Shouldn't you be able to run this on a $5 VPS or is there something I'm missing?
>> No. 112742 ID: 336324

With the new software almost yes, not quite $5 but certainly much much cheaper. The old software can't be ported. It's too ancient and shitty. Even stopping and restarting it is risky.

1. Expand that little Irc section to a full list of off site communities we can keep updated. We have a steam community and I'm sure plenty of us have consoles. I guess the Facebook group is still around.

2 Put up a high traffic trash board like /dmz/ that's easy to access. Last time this site had a good influx of traffic was 10 or so years ago when /k/ came here from other chan going down for a brief time. I like specialty areas, but we need a place with high activity and general banter. Basically this >>111337

Of course mobile friendly would help, but I suppose we can use the app.

Mostly, we need to encourage more posting, too much rules kills the board. I came here looking for info on the government shutdown. It's almost the happening that half of /k/ has talked about for a decade, nothing in news why isn't that the first thing I see?
>> No. 112747 ID: 336324

Good ideas
>> No. 112767 ID: 9affbd

1. Enable catalog view.

2. Have a /WSG/ section.
-Sticky with educational webms that teach from how to start shooting all the way to advanced skills and long range.
-Another sticky listing board rules & etiquette.

3. Advertise.
-Get people to come here.
-Turn this into a refuge from 4chan's /k/
-Make shit lively
-Convince the mods to actively or routinely post new content, people will at least check in to see what's changed.

4. Once there are enough visitors, try tactical gear raffles in the PBE store to help raise money & keep site afloat financially.
-Say an item costs $150, Make 15 spots at $12/each. Once all the tickets are paid for, make a .webm of the drawing using a number randomizer or dice, something. That raffle would bring in $30. Eventually prizes get cooler.

Bring back the PBE store, but do it right this time.
-Maybe work with Ivan at the kommandostore or something.
-Talk Ivan into buying more awesome milsurp and sell it on his site... like those Marine Corps fleeces or the marpat packs. Or do that for the PBE store and raise some money.
-Let patchbros use a page on the PBE store to hock their wares. Someone makes an order, it goes to the patchmaker, payment handled through a payment system and the patchmaker gets his money once he sends proof of postage.

5. Find someone to do or post series regarding various weapon assemblies/disassemblies while explaining the functions and benefits behind each design on /st/.

6. Make a /meet/map
-Get someone to help make a map or an overlay for google maps/earth that shows public land where people can shoot, ranges, military museums, battlefields, etc.
-Set up a /meet/ calendar for events, keep it updated

7. Create a /diy/ board
-Someone wants to post all of Larry Potterfield's videos showing you how to fuck with guns? They can go to /WSG/ or /diy/ to make a thread with lower sized .webm videos.
-Sewing pattern threads for making your own tactical gear
-Want a thread to discuss how to NOT die in a buried shipping container bunker? Here you go.
-Great place for fieldcraft & medical knowledge

This chan can be something worthwhile if the guys running it put in the effort.

This may be a stupid question, but aside from youtube, what other video hosting services could we embed on the new board?

Currently I see Dailymotion, Vimeo, and Liveleak. Could we include Bitchute, Full30, and/or other hosting sites? With youtube's faggotry towards censorship, freedom, and firearms, I don't think it's a bad idea to encourage other hosting services whenever possible.
