Whatever you say, boss.
>tinyboard and vichan
Tinyboard's GitHub repo hasn't seen a commit since July of 2014, and http://tinyboard.org/ redirects to http://stopnerds.org/ .
Meanwhile, in vichan land:
>Topic for #vichan-devel is: vichan is looking for a new maintainer
>Topic for #vichan-devel set by email@example.com (Mon Oct 19 04:32:37 2015)
and the guy is almost completely silent.
Neither platform was given much consideration.
Like Jedi said, >>109153, we're focusing on LynxChan, which is under active development, and whose creator hangs out and shoots the shit with developers, site admins running his code, and regular Joe Blows on irc every day. He's put up with and answered my questions for well over a month, now.
And honestly, I'm not aware of much else in the imageboard software world that isn't developed specifically for one site.
