Bump limits and reply limits on threads have been changed across the site. Instead of the massive 500/750 it used to be, it's now 150/225 for the Anime & 2D Media board and 250/300 for the Japan/Otaku Hobbies board. We're hopeful that this will encourage the creation of new threads instead of having everything sit in months/years old "general" threads.

something you might not know is that we have a lot of word filters from back when the site was starting that were meant to define the culture and keep it far away from 4chan culture
outside of some people trying to greentext on here occasionally they did a great job of making sure the users that stuck around would actually use their braincells when formulating posts

Sorry, I missed everything. EVERYTHING. And I don't know if I'm remembering right but I think the first time I saw a link to the site the main page was something like this >>29255 and thought it was too simple and doomed to die, lol. Talk about good wishes, but glad the site made it through and survived all this time.

Now tell me about those samasecrets. Why did it die once? Was it due to the negative frens back then that roamed all over for a while? Was it due to lightning destroying the servers and all those precious images? Was it due to aliens? Were they cute?

I eternally regret not sticking around when I found this site before the shutdown. When I decided to give it a second shot it was dead, but I'm glad I kept checking back until the return. I browse and occasionally post on a lot of smaller imageboards but this is the only I check every day (many times every day even), and the only one I post on regularly. I know my dumbfuck opinion doesn't mean a whole lot but Samachan really is the place I have the most fun online, and it's only that way because of everyone else using the site and of course the administration. I love you guys.

That's basically not going to happen again, same with the events we ran

 No.29269

 No.29270

>>29269
Very small amount of people actually care, and even those that did admitted that it wasn't anything they found particularly fun
Which isn't to say that it's the users themselves, it's not, it's the fact that there's not a big enough population to the boards to support any form of event that an anonymous imageboard can run. We can't tie things to accounts like a forum could, so we're really limited on what we can do, and what we can do and are capable of doing are the events where people choose teams, and nobody really cares because the website is slow enough to where one person can just spam 20 votes at the end to ensure their team wins. It happened both times we ran the events.
Same with the festivals, the population of the site is different than it was back when we opened, so it's harder to drum up interest. Back with the original festival we had people who made touhou music, artists, fan game makers, translators, etc who used the site and it allowed them to show off their stuff and use their threads as "booths", and this didn't really happen the last two times so we didn't run a festival last year and nobody noticed, so it's safe to say that not many people cared that much. Back then the site was also much faster, getting about 15k posts a month, so events like that were easier to do
It's a metrics thing, really

Understandable. The site is plenty fun as it is and I'm glad we can organize little things like streams and D&D games as a community still.

You can read Yuno's news post from two days before the site closed if you want to find out why it closed
Also, the front page probably looked like this when you saw it, it was not like that for more than a week or two; and it was also not like this for more than few months. Our current front page is how it's been since around December of 2015 if I remember correctly

>>29271
I don't want to say it will never happen again as a definite but they're just really hard to do as the team running the site. Besides, it's easier to let you guys form community stuff and do stuff together than us try and force you to
>Woah, really? I always assumed we were as active as we've ever been right now but it's not like I keep an eye on that sorta thing.
We're the most active we've been post Live and post reopening, but yeah the first few months of Samachan were really fast but aren't indicative of the site at all anymore.
The boards being deleted and remade and deleted has kind of screwed up the post counts across the site so they're not entirely accurate to how many posts they "should" have. This board in particularly was deleted twice, both times around in the 10-19k range, there used to be a hentai board that has thousands of posts, there was obviously Live if you're counting more recent things, etc
Samachan is doing great though and we're all happy about the state of the website at the moment

You can still use frames, it's just not openly advertised anywhere. Maybe we'll add it to the space between Rules and Contact so it's more easily accessible

The story of /r/ is pretty tragic but at least we can remember the good times and learn from the bad ones moving forwards.

Everyone just needs to expend more posting energy! Not every post needs to be a super important 10/10 must read post, even a mediocre post inspires more posts on top of it!

While the big community events are difficult to pull off with the current numbers, isn't it fine having a little fun with CSS changes and stickies like right now? They could shake some stagnation off, maybe.
