Future of the site LtBarclay##FuufeZ 10/15/2018 (Mon) 00:48:50 Id:085b07 No. 5557 [Last 50 Posts]
Hello explorers. I didn't really expect to be here still. TBH, I was hoping to just be another user by now, with a new admin directing the course of the site. If you've been keeping up, you'll remember that dream fell through. So we are at an impasse.

You're all familiar with the site. I want some clear direction on how to take it, because for the life of me, I can't decide what to do. What we are doing isn't sustainable. We're growing at an exponential rate. It may not seem like it based on post-count, but on traffic, we're booming. In a few months time we'll have outgrown our server yet again. We're in the top 8,000 sites in the US and getting bigger every month.

Here's the thing. We're DMCA-immune, sure, but what does that get us? Not much. Links are routinely taken down even though we aren't following DMCA. We're basically back to where we were 2 years ago: if a content creator wants their content taken down, they go to the file host, not to us. Wetransfer, mega, files.fm are all responding. Only mab seems somewhat immune, but I'm almost positive even they respond sometimes. It's hard to tell with the 48 hour expiration time.

So here's the deal. We tried taking donations to support the whole DMCA/Ad-free route. It didn't work because bitcoin is too hard for most users.

So I'm putting up a poll. I've lost my IRL job, so at this point, going back to DMCA so we can have traditional advertisers and tradtional donations doesn't seem too bad to me. I'm honestly at the point where my extreme paranoia about my anonymity can be put aside if this site can support itself + make me a little on the side. But what do you think: is being DMCA and AD-free worth it to you?

http://www.rkursem.com/poll/view.php?id=b774f1520202c9c88
>>5557
I can see where you're coming from, in regard to going back to being DMCA compliant; as some of the links really don't stay up for more than a day or two.

I wonder just how much it would effect the sharing of content, maybe some other users could weigh in? If it's not a significant difference I'd say go for it
>>5557
If it's not a good moment for flying the jolly roger, don't. I think there's more people letting their locked content out themselves and more free artists are starting to crop back up so the drought won't hurt this places upload rate as much as it did and if anyone still wants to leak pay content, there's still 8Chans bbw board.

i respect your desire to remain anonymous and am impressed with all the work youve done to keep the site afloat; however i just think maybe this job isnt for you, and you should try to step down to be a mod/normal user rather than running this site as a whole.

i very much prefer how things are right now, and i dont think this site should die. i hardly go on the main board and dont dl vids (just occasionally save pictures on the japanese thread) but on the few times ive tried links they are all dead and it's plain annoying, and a lot of the thread is "re-up?

that said, you shouldn't let the site die, those poll options are a bit jumping the gun. there has to be someone else who is willing to run the site and accept normal donations rather than bitcoin. find someone else, please.
>>5560

as a continuation: it is very clear in your big post about leaving the site that many people have expressed wanting to donate. and with site traffic going up, that's more people who may want to support the site.

i totally understand wanting to remain anonymous-- that's great. that's why i think you should absolutely get someone else to do this who is willing to accept donations through easier means.
How much will advertisements matter for revenue considering how many users use Ad Block?

I mean, Hell, I use Ad Block.
I would continue on with ad support if it can pay for the hosting and future growth if donations are not going to cover costs and future rising costs. I say go for it with the ad support.

If you can structure some type of LLC or entity to shield your identity then do what you must and support the site and yourself.
>>5558
Not much. I imagine MAB will become king again. DMCA notices must be responded to in a "reasonable" amount of time. MAB expires in 48 hours. By the time it's reasonable to remove the link, it's probably expired anyway. Wetransfer / et all will probably stop being used entirely.

>>5559
Unsure, but considering what's going on over there, it wouldn't surprise me if the new admin who was going to take over was from the EU.

>>5560
>>5561
It definitely wasn't for me when I had a steady job. Now that I'm jobless, it seems like I might as well take the plunge and lose my anonymity if it means this site can support itself. You have to understand this is a strange ship and finding captains isn't easy. It took months to find someone willing to run it like I was doing, and even when I did, they flaked. I think I was the only person in the world willing to run the site DMCA/Ad free at my own expense. Which is why I'm now floating the idea of going back to DMCA and taking traditional donations / advertisers.

>>5563
A lot. I know many people use an ad blocker (myself included). I would hope that those that do would throw us $5 or so every few months if they were able to do so easily, via paypal/patreon/etc, or at least disable their blocker for this site, as long as the ads aren't scummy.
>>5564
An LLC would just provide one more layer of onion to peel, IF I didn't take donations and only relied on advertising revenue. Considering we will probably need a mix of advertising and donations, I don't think an LLC is worth it, but good idea.

This site is entirely unique for being DMCA-free. If it isn't kept that way, I don't think it would remain particularly successful.

Thank you for everything you've done for us, by the way, Barclays.
Big respect.
>>5557
being DMCA complaint is easy and won't effect the site at all. just ask jess. she was the dmca officer and processed all valid dmca claims.

most models who want their content taken down will do something silly like make one threatening reply asking that we never post any of their content ever again.

the only person who routinely emailed jess and followed protocol was the owner of big cuties. so if we become dmca complaint we lose big cuties content. that's basically the whole thing, period.

NOW bbw-chan used to be a DNP site which meant anytime any model or site owner whined at all we would police our own site and never let any of their content appear again, that goes way beyond the dmca we'd lose almost all our posts/content/threads

I think all of this comes down to, is anyone willing to be listed as the official dmca officer? read a few emails? then delete a few posts? if yes? then it's win/win
>>5565

I agree that myairbridge basically skirts dmca law effectively, but I think users will be surprised how few models actually give enough of a shit to file dmca claims over and over and over. I think for 90% of threads wetransfer will still be fine, and when wetransfer isn't fine, a moderator/admin/owner of the site will simply have to remove 2or3 posts.
>>5557
Barclay, I love your dedication but god, just let this place drop, man. This place isn't worth your life (in more ways than one). Get back on the horse and get yourself stable first. If you really wanted to, you could probably just take over 8chan's /bbw/ board - someone above noted that it continues to exist.

I'm almost certain at least half of the people voting to go back to DMCA are the same people going "re-up?" and "bump?" constantly. Not to mention that while the hits come in, the content is meh to none. Wish DC++ didn't drop off the face of the earth, that seemed like a good option since most stuff on private places like Empornium is mostly hardcore shit you can get anywhere.
>>5581
>If you really wanted to, you could probably just take over 8chan's /bbw/ board - someone above noted that it continues to exist.

Not to burst your bubble anon, but with the recent furor from 8chan and fallout from all the datamining that was going on, Barlacy taking it over would likely deal more harm to him than good.
I haven't decided what to vote for yet. I certainly have no opposition to you being able to profit from this site if you can. But I don't know that I understand things well enough to make a decision yet which is why I'm not voting at this time. I take it as it's not possible to do any ads without the DMCA thing? Donations have been short in the past, which I would first suggest and like to see come back as an option for site support.

Site traffic is surprisingly high. Yet the content sharing seems low. ( yes I'm guilty of not sharing at times but what I have isn't being requested)

It's annoying when we see threads bumped with asks for reups and if links get pulled then there will just be more asks wont there? To use a different site etc. Could possibly drive traffic away to 8chan or wherever else.
I don't want to see this site die. I like this place, it has provided me plenty of bbw porn goodness for years now.
I would definitely donate if this site had a Patreon.

Far more harm than good from it having been started because the old owner put a Feminist (Jess) in as a mod and ran off more from his and Barclays refusal to deal with her bullshit.

>>5589
That defeats the purpose of using a Chan and the boards never move fast enough that keeping up with the ones you like is an issue.

This site is too much too handle and if it dies, someone else will create a porn sharing board or whatever.

If you ARE intent on trying to keep this site afloat and the DMCA approach doesn't work, bringing back the DNP list would drive a ton of the users away who are only here for piracy, which in turn would make the cost of maintaining the site more feasible, yeah?

Obviously this is an extreme option and I know most people would flip their shit, but I unironically liked bbwchan more when it was propped up with original content rather than endless threads of pirated content filled with zombie replies of reupload and beg requests.

/gen/ ironically enough is probably my favorite thing about the site at this point as it allows the community to air its grievances about the community as a whole without the hugbox shit of other sites in addition to the advice and interesting discussions related to the fetish. It is the one thing I would legitimately be sad to see go at this point.
I would donate if there were a cash option.
>>5592
>I unironically liked bbwchan more when it was propped up with original content
>original content
We haven't had any real form of original content since long before the DNP got removed. Our only regular poster (Woot) left because of the move towards piracy while random drawfags seem more or less the same.
>>5594
I think flat out reddit stole all our original content posters, as you said, several years before dnp ended
>>5593
Yes, a few of us would be donating, if...
- the payment options were easy
- the donations were used to balance the technical costs of the only, not being interpreted as a „membership fee“ in order to access stolen content.
- the solution would finally end the money talk & drama
Whatever it is you decide, you have to make sure to take care of yourself first. Degenerate though I am, it would leave a bad taste in my mouth to use this forum knowing it was costing its admin time and money they could better use to support themselves.
longtime user here, I wouldn't be too bothered by ads and DMCA takedowns. Realistically the nature of a chan style board, and the speed at which threads move means that piracy can still flourish
Going back to ad supported wouldn't bother me, was there not issue with various ad embedding companies not liking association with porn previously tho?

Has anyone heard any success of using a free forum provider like : https://www.phpbb.com

to any success. That could potentially be a decent option where piracy is concerned, you could enforce a membership option to view an equivalent of bbw gen (and then have a separate one for for the superfats)

I do think though like others have stated, look after no1 LtB first
>>5564
>If you can structure some type of LLC or entity to shield your identity then do what you must and support the site and yourself.
Can you explain to me how this works? The world is a scary place these days and anything to protect my identity would be amazing to have.
>>5557
Crazy question - why don't we use torrents instead of DDL? Every single thread I see is people bumping the thread with nothing more than "reup pls," with DMCA takedowns plaguing half the links and the other half simply expiring. P2P would, theoretically, bypass both of these, depending on the trackers (if any!) used. It may introduce a barrier to entry, sure, but it'd be a lot better than frantically switching DDL providers every time we think one is going to remove content.
>>5678
>why don't we use torrents instead of DDL
Because the same people constantly reuping and bumping are mostly too lazy or too stupid to figure out Onion and the IRC so they'll still be doing it if torrenting was used.
>>5632

I agree, the history of this site indicates that this is the best course of action. filehosters already follow the dmca, taking down posts to links will have an impact, but it will be small.

we're a porn site, our ads might also suck, but donations have never worked, both of these features might reduce site traffic slightly as people are upset, but a happy medium should exist, where everyone can co-exist. weird porn ads, dmca takedowns, pirate links.
>>5678

people have posted torrents on bbw-chan before, they're wildly unpopular and hardly anyone uses them. basically bbw-chan has way too many leeches for torrents to work, unless those torrents are already supported via another site/source
with DDL EVEN IF the link only stays up 1-2 days the UL bandwidth compared to DL bandwidth is still 1to10 or 1to100 whereas with a torrent it can only ever be 1:1
I don't know where else to post this, but since migrating to https the non-https page is showing 404 not found and a link "migrated", but it links to the same 404 page.

The elegant way would be to add a redirect to the https site, or add a mod rewrite directive in the site config, so it directs all traffic to the new https:// url

You'd think so, but the site was pretty popular even when when had DMCA/DNP. Anons find a way to work around restrictions.

>>5582
Yea, no interest in taking over a dead-ish board on a site I don't have control over.

>>5583
Again, not looking to profit really. I want this site to support it self, not really anything more. If I was able to make a little beer money on top, that'd be nice, but I really don't see this site being any kind of reliable 'income' for me.

>>5583
>content sharing seems low

Does not compute.

>>5590
Basically did that. Didn't work. Could try again, I guess?

>>5594
Losing woot was definitely the first step in the site beginning to circle the drain.

>>5649
True, we wouldn't be able to use google adwords, only adult-focused advertisers, but they have a pretty big budget too. Not the level of google's, but more than enough to support the site.

>>5675
Essentially a moot point. If we were playing a massive shell game, an LLC would kind of sort of work as a deterrent, but not much.

>>5679
Not only that, but there are privacy concerns with torrenting. Let's not forget, though the content creators probably aren't as viscous as AAA movie producers or software companies like Adobe, there is evidence if you don't obfuscate your IP when torrenting something covered by copyright, you might get a letter in the mail.

>>5681
I believe the redirect was causing our certs to mess up when they tried to renew, but I will be taking a look at this as soon as I finish moving.

Thanks everyone for replying / submitting your responses to the poll. I will be considering everything carefully going forward and should have some kind of proposal in the next few weeks.
>>5711
don't give up, everything thinks you're great!
I miss the Good old Times Thick BBW Forum
Just a heads up taking donations or payment in any form would constitute a crime as your profiting even if little to none from someone else's copy-written work. Might be worth thinking about.

Either stay anonymous and Free (no ads as they are income too) or just let it go. Not worth your life time or maybe even jail time! lol
>>5729

I mean, if you comply with DMCA well enough, that's your shield against "crime-ness" also, keep in mind, this site has been around for ya know 1-2 DECADES with any trouble at all.
>>5729
oh err, also, left this out in my previous post...


How does the legality of donations differ from the legality of advertisements as income? bbw-chan ran ads under a previous owner for again, more than a decade, no problems
>>5729
If it's done right, anything under 14k (in the US) can be considered a "gift", and is therefore non-taxable.

>>5557 Hello, Long time user here, occasional poster but in all honesty I find most of the content shared here from other sources before I see it here. In my opinion let this site run adds to support server costs. As the popularity of this site has grown the over-all quality of posts has gone down. All I see are requests without sharing content, people sharing old content, and ID requests that make me question peoples intelligence. Personally I think this site is dead if you are a serious collector, there are other avenues to obtain new content. That's my opinion and I thought I'd share it with whoever cares to read it. Thanks for the few good years this sites had. Cheers
>>5749
trading has been against the rules for many years, so unless you think "no one has been posting anything for years" then your argument is not 100% airtight.

I've noticed this trend too. Seems like this site is undergoing some sort of "Eternal September" of its own, yet it feels so dead. Too many "reup" posts, too many links going down instantly because of blacklisting/technologically-impaired posters, too many weird posters here that make me question this whole fetish/preference/whatever. And personally, I'm sick of all the Boberry obsession.

I'm afraid DMCA-compliance + advertising might have to be the way to go for this chan for a while, maybe for the rest of this site's existence. Even then, those efforts may be futile, because a lot of the community who aren't here just for the free shit have moved on to Reddit, Tumblr, Twitter, Instagram, and even <blech> Feabie, Curvage, and Dimensions.
IMO, the only way to survive as a platform for sharing copyrighted content for a long period of time is to host a non-indexed forum with limited number of members (with infrequent open-registration periods, or signups through limited, invitation-only basis), with donation drives once in a while. Sorta like what Cinemajuggs and Empornium have set up. I think this would keep the bandwidth costs manageable, keeps the shills and rats out, and prevents the site culture from going to total shit.

In the meantime, I would like to see a crackdown on "reup" posts and link anonymizers for we.transfer links. Maybe auto-sage such threads when three or more "reups" are posted in a row, or extend the "no requests" rule beyond new threads.

Anyway, that's my two cents (sorry for the run-on sentences). I do greatly appreciate the sweat, blood, and tears that Lt. Barclay has poured into this site, and the mods for keeping this place from turning into a CP-infested shithole like the previous chan. The FODArray was kick-ass, and an awesome attempt to keep MAB links alive. It's just a shame it wasn't sustainable, especially with the current community.

I think it's because the content producers are become more sparse, or the overall quality of content being produced has degraded.

The community has always been very slowly dying. If I think back to my early days of Internet BBW porn, there used to be tons to choose from. You had places like BBWHunters/Superstars for Hardcore, a variety of models/content creators like Princess Lissa, Ranye or Shine, and Brie Brown. Waiting hours for someone to reupload Sugar Pear's videos. etc.

That's all gone now. We have low energy models who think jiggling their gut for 2 minutes is worth $9.99. You have people who over obsess about just one model like you said (I too, do not understand the obsession with Mary). You have the incredibly toxic HAES and EYB communities constantly shitting on people.

Hardcore is gone too, unless you enjoy watching either a Black Guy and a fat chick which isn't everyone's cup of tea. Or if you're not into that, I hope you like watching some old guy who belongs in a retirement home, or Creepy Balding Gay Herpes man AKA Christian XXX. I guarantee you no one wants most of that, and most non-black men won't be interested in the BMWM content.

The only people who probably still create great content is Mistress Kim if you are into face sitting, Olivia Jadie from what I can tell and a number of other cam personalities, and the occasional one or two amateur videos uploaded on Porn Hub. Honestly, I've just stopped viewing porn because the the content drought sucks. Everything good was made between 2006-2013, it's been downhill ever since. Why waste time looking for a video, when I can just search my porn drive for a video I downloaded 5 years ago that whlie not in HD, is still better than half the crap uploaded today?

The community here is great, the thing is, were dying not because of ourselves, but because the content quality has declined. The younger generation simply is doing a terrible job. Gone are the days of watching something great by Brie Brown, Jenni, Samantha Anderson, or Melody Nyte. Instead, your stuck with content so low effort it looks like it would be a shit post.

>Even then, those efforts may be futile, because a lot of the community who aren't here just for the free shit have moved on to Reddit, Tumblr, Twitter, Instagram, and even <blech> Feabie, Curvage, and Dimensions.

Reddit is a circlejerk and nothing more than attention whoring. Tumblr has it's own issues. Twitter is full of beggars (Seriously, models going "CAN SOMEONE PLEASE PAY FOR ME TO GO TO DISNEY WORLD? <3 <3 <3", Feabie is cancer. I don't know what dimensions is like anymore, I knew a mod there that seriously got sick and tired of the shit going on there though. Curvage, don't know either. For the record, the other smaller ones like fat-forums are shit too.
>>5767
yeah about a year ago, ish, the bbw category on empornium died pretty hard going from a page of torrents every other day to a page of torrents every other week, ish, roughly

I don't see how bbw-chan is in anyway to blame, if anything pornhub is to blame for their monopoly, everything is now mindfreak or reddit

stuff like channel69 or "superstars" or really any professional but small scale porn production has died. everything is now mindfreak or super duper amateur, there's no free market driven middle ground. I don't blame empornium, I don't blame bbw-chan but I do blame mindfreak.
>5770
When you say mindfreak, did you mean mindgeek, or is there something called mindfreak too?

>yeah about a year ago, ish, the bbw category on empornium died pretty hard going from a page of torrents every other day to a page of torrents every other week, ish, roughly

I haven't used empornium in a long time, but damn that sounds accurate about what's going on. I use one of those tube search sites, and the content there has slowly dried up, with the BBW category being flooded with women who are clearly are often times barely even overweight. If that.

That's the other thing I forgot to mention in my wall of text. No one knows what a BBW is anymore. 5 pounds overweight? Main stream says that's BBW. SSBBW has become the new BBW. A guy on ianondb (or whatever it was called, I forget), once told me jokingly that USBBW is the new SSBBW, SSBBW was the new BBW, and BBW simply doesn't even exist anymore, this was around 2012.

>I don't see how bbw-chan is in anyway to blame, if anything pornhub is to blame for their monopoly, everything is now mindfreak or reddit

Bingo. BBW-Chan is doing it's best to hang on. Pornhub/mindfreak bought out pretty much every big porn company/tube, and killed the smaller less profitable sites.

This started happening when whoever was behind KingHost (The old defacto porn web hosting company which every now and again when you find a dead link, will find it once pointed to KingHost) got into financial trouble.

>stuff like channel69 or "superstars" or really any professional but small scale porn production has died.

Hah, I know why the Superstar family of sites did too. This comes from two people who worked with them. I don't know what channel69 is though I'm afraid.

The recession mainly did that. I don't remember who, but a few of the bigger named BBW pornstars back around 2010 stated that because of the recession, the pay became really shitty, so many became escorts to supplement this, eventually just going the escort route full on.

Whoever owned SuperStars/Hunters/The Few others they had, was reduced to one male talent, who later got arrested, effectively halting the production of new content while they tried to find new talent. Most already left so they couldn't get them to come back, and when they found new talent willing to work for peanuts, the site had become irrelevant. They also had the cameraman do a few POV videos to fill gap, of which only one I think was ever released.

>everything is now mindfreak or super duper amateur, there's no free market driven middle ground. I don't blame empornium, I don't blame bbw-chan but I do blame mindfreak.

I don't blame them either. Honestly, it's been great to stop watching porn, it took too much of my time up. I've grown to like pin-up style things more and not fap as much.

Ya talk about cinemajuggs and empornium, and guess what? Being a member of both (with +20 ratio on emp):

They have trading.
Thus an active userbase.

On CJ I can put a clipteez request up and it usually get fulfilled in 3 months. On EMP I can put up 500GB-1TB bounty and SOMEBODY is going to fufill my request unless really obscure like Anonymous College Gainer :/

yes I meant mindgeek.

cinemajuggs is dead since their registeration has been closed for about a decade.

If cinemajuggs isn't dying, please let me know how to join, I've wanted to for a decade.

if bbw-chan HAD ratio maybe trading would be okay. what makes trading so bad on bbw-chan is that there is NOTHING to trade, there's no currency, so really it's just begging and threats... and again

TRADING has been against the rules on bbw-chan for probably a decade, so it can't possibly be the cause of a recent problem.

CJ far from dying, most of the posting is in a secondary forum for sponsors though. They have no reason to reveal open registration to current members, so I dont know how you can join either (no invite system on vbulletin).

Bottom line: A community NEEDS trading to survive
>>5781

...
A community needs registration at least once a decade to survive. Check the web traffic stats on CJ it's gone off a cliff it's at about 1% the traffic of it's peak.

You might be right, trading might help, somehow, in someway, but none of your arguments actually support that fact. The fact that you've seen trades and liked them doesn't mean the trade system is actually responsible for any "benefit".

Additionally trading amongst members of a site that hasn't allowed any new members to join in 10-15 years is one thing. That's a community. bbw-chan isn't a community we're a public forum full of random trolls and shitposters who drive by. Trading amongst a tight knit community is a bit different than shouting about trading in a public place.

ADDITIONALLY I think that trading on bbw-chan is LITERALLY impossible right now. Why? there aren't enough moderators. MAYBE if TSG came back and was willing to supervise it we could try it.

CJ has no trolls because it's membership has been declining a lot. bbw-chan has few moderators, and tons of trolls.

Basically regardless of what you say, trading isn't currently something that can possibly be tried on bbw-chan.
How do you see the links they just say it was deleted

another thing i'll say about threads having no content....

someone bought and posted brand new never before seen danni the fatty premium curvage video, shared it.

that thread now doesn't exist, and as far as I recall, last time I checked I'm the only one who replied "thanks". That may very well have been his only bump? so the thread died in less than a week...


meanwhile there's about 15-30 threads that haven't had any new content posted in MONTHS that get bumped daily and push recent content off the chan. if you think the signal to noise ratio is bad, the solution isn't to beg harder, it's to stop adding so much noise. there's plenty of signal around. or at least there would be for a smaller community.

Lol I know right?

Smartlypants—when you include black people being involved as why something’s has gone ‘downhill’, it’s commonly referred to as “racism”

See: “This neighborhood has gone downhill since the black family moved in”

Or

“White immigrants are great, but black immigrants are why I think my fuel efficiency has gone downhill”

Now here I thought it was because my car was just getting old.

Man maybe I misread some shit but I didn't see him blame anyone lmao read it again he just says that's the only content available and he isn't into that.

I don't see you jumping on "Creepy Balding Gay Herpes man AKA Christian XXX" which, mind you, is literally part of the same sentence

Nope you understood it perfectly. My complaint is about the lack of variety in porn. There's nothing wrong with making BMWM porn, but when that's the only thing you produce, you only get a narrower your audience. I'd love to see some more WMBW, but that's rarer. And not only that, I mention that I liked several black BBWs in that same post. Sugar Pear and Melody Nyte are both black.

As such, I'm under the impression that >>5795 and >>5802 are the same typical trolls that show up when ever BMWM is criticized. The same ones that when WMBW content is uploaded to a tubesite feel the urge to vote it down and make comments about how "She didn't really like it, I know this bitch IRL" because they get salty when a black woman does anything with a white guy. I'd just ignore them, they're not going to add anything insightful to this discussion.

Correct me if I'm wrong, BBWChan now uses the Lynxchan software. Doesn't lynxchan have a bump locking feature? Something along the lines of "If a thread has been bumped x number of times to page 1, don't bump anymore"? I think that would solve the issue of threads going on forever. If it was tried out for a few weeks, that would provide useful data on whether it solves the problem.

I feel you though. I replied to a thread on /booty/ asking if a video could be reuploaded, it went to page 1, and was pushed to page 10 within a day.
Oh fuck, wrong thread

yes bbwchan uses autosaging
the limit on autosaging is very high because if the posts are generally good posts you want to let users make lots of them, the issue is just the number of blank posts being made overall, which is likely so high just because of the vast increase in the number of "leechers" aka visitors to the site who never post anything useful. I think the number of people who share and the amount shared on bbw-chan has been fairly steady this year and for a while, it's just the signal to noise ratio that IMO has gotten worse.

I thought up a solution to the signal to noise ratio problem, someone was suggesting that useless pointless bumps where someone literally just says "bump" might need to be made against the rules, they don't really contribute anything.

that would be kind of hard to enforce, but what if say any post with no hyperlink and less than say 10 characters in it would just autosage as if you'd typed sage in the subject area (basically spam a thread as much as you want but unless you write a sentence or a hyperlink it won't bump the thread to page 1).

personally even though many sentences turn into flamewars and derail threads i think many sentences are still important, not all questions are rude necroposts.

this suggestion might not be technically possible, or if it is possible annoying bump'ers might realize what's happening and start bumping with sagdlkhgfsljfdghalksjdfghsdlkjghsfdgsdfs
You might want to think about making this a private forum with paid members.
How about a coin mining script? Let everyone know on the start page if they continue that some of their cpu time will be used to support the site payments. If that is not enough put ads as well!
>>5824
Been there, done that. All that did was drive more people away from the site. And those scripts are immediately blacklisted by adblockers and anti-malware trackers.
I've no knowledge of the lynxchan capabilities but a blanket delete of any thread 100 days old would be worth trying.

We come on and look at the same threads each day just to see a bump on something that would otherwise have been long forgotten about.

I'd straight delete any thread in BBWReal if it didn't have content in the OP too.

I check in there most days and if any additional mods are required i'd be happy to delete crap out of the way. I don't think the 'lonely dude' asshat comments should remain, it pisses other people off and stops people sharing IMHO
