Extended downtime in 30 minutes. Site will be redirected while down.
Schedule of downtime:
- 12:00est > DNS redirects and I do a 2nd backup of frozen site.
- 18:00est or less > site is wiped.
- 19:00est > begin restoring stuff
- 00:00est > site back up and I begin fixing any issues
- 12:00est > site should be fully operational

Timetable is just a rough approximation to give you the idea of what's happening. This is based on the 4taba backup which was much harder to do. Should be much smoother on kissu since this server only has the Kissu.moe rendering/posting handlers and the banners.

When the site is restored you can use this for general reporting until I move it back into >>>/b/

wanted to install php8.0 to give the site a speed boost but it would require the site being down until noon tommorow. They added so many changes to PHP that this decade old vichan hunk of junk flops around like a fish out of water. Maybe another time.

In other news this 10 hour detour in site activity has given us 2-3GB which will last us a bit. If the site fills up too quickly I'll look more seriously into server changes and not penny pinch to the last month of our server lease.

In order to increase the amount of SSD space we have available for Kissu I'm doing reinstall for our two servers. First will be the side server and then the main server.

Shortly before scheduled downtime posting will be frozen and there will be some redirects set up so that the community is directed into my other imageboards (4taba and kissu).

On Jan 10 at 12:00 EST the following services will be down for 24 hours MAXIMUM(list may be edited):
- 4taba.net -> DNS will be redirected into kissu.moe temporarily
- taba archiver
- theatre.kissu
- luna.kissu -> Most of our images, new images will be redirected into haiji.kissu during downtime
- Sageru IRC Bot
- umami
- Captchouli captcha
- kissu-cards

On Jan 12 at 12:00 EST the main kissu server will be down for 24 hours MAXIMUM:

It would be nice to have a board that is specfically dedicated to all kinds of Touhou posting.
Besides of 4/jp/ we don't have a lot of active Touhou boards in the imageboard-realms, and we all know what a piece of shit 4chan is.

Yeah, I have the same question as the first reply. Kissu doesn't have an exclusive Touhou board, but I don't think anyone has felt the need for one. You could make 50 stupid throwaway Touhou threads on /jp/ right now if you wanted to, or create some serious threads on /qa/ and use them for years. You can post Touhou-related files on /f/, or dump thousands of cute or sexy 2hu images on /ec/.
Currently a thread on /jp/ has a lifetime of about a month without a bump and on /qa/ it's about half a year. I think there's certainly enough space for more threads if you so desire.

Personally, I don't think it's beneficial to isolate things into their own area when it comes to something like this. It's good for people to be exposed to new things they may enjoy, and I think imageboards work best with a shared community across all boards.

>And besides, I don't think you can call 4/jp/ a Touhou board anymore.
Really? I haven't been there in years other than taking an occasional look at the VN thread, but I just did a quick scan and more than a third of the board is Touhou. It makes sense that it would be the most prominent topic on the board, since Vtubers have their own board now, and most "/jp/ topics" were banned or condensed into generals a long time ago. (the Touhou threads themselves are mostly generals, anyway)

 No.8763

>>8761
I don't think it would be that much of an isolation, the overboard is a thing, and you could make good use of that feature by expanding the amount of boards that you could browse through it.

 No.8764

>>8760
> a dozen threads about the various aspects of Touhou, the games, the fan works from doujin to music works

I'd be fine with all of those threads on existing boards. The only thing I'd be against is if you made them as generals, which would also be the case on a hypothetical touhou board.
A thread like "what touhou doujin stuff do you like?" or "I just listened to ___ and it's good" are great threads, but something like "touhou doujin music thread, all music discussion goes here" would be detrimental.

>people would be freer to post about such topics
Maybe this is the crux of the matter. Do you not feel free to create as many touhou threads as you want as-is? We (kissu users) really want people to make threads to share their thoughts and interests so this is something to fix.

 No.8805

Have you tried making any Touhou threads OP? My Touhou doujin music thread on /qa/ got some talk and links going on. You just need to start a discussion if you want to see it.
I think it's something worth trying

How much does it cost to run the site?

 No.8682

are we talking about the cost of my time as a developer or the costs of renting things such as the domain and servers?

 No.8683

I'll give you both.
Kissu has 2 VPS servers that come out to $96 per year, a domain name for kissu.moe and also 4taba.net are something like $20 per year. lets just say $120/yr for me to just keep things as they are. Mind you there are times when I think we could be spending more on servers and I've had to do a lot of tests to verify that the site can sustain high post rates typical in spam or other malicious attacks.. which leads me to the next point.

Being a software developer costs 27$/hr and if you don't consider this as an overhead then stop reading, but if we were to evaluate the price of my time in developing and maintaining software, probably we could say $30,000? At this point dev work has stabilized and I'm not working on much so I don't think you could say that the cost of me working on the site is increasing, if you believe this sort of thing is a cost.

so 120$/yr and a flat cost of development of 30,000$

I feel like it's less about quantity and more about quality. A small site populated by dickheads is always going to be worse than a big one with nice users.

I also think a lot of it comes down to moderation. On kissu for example, the mods prune disruptive, low-quality, or otherwise inappropriate posts, and punish the people who make them. It not only keeps the site clean, but it also sends the message that the people who post that sort of thing aren't welcome here. You're way less likely to see people even attempt to make bad posts here because there aren't many bad posts on the board.

Honestly, that's probably why quality seems to decrease as a community grows. As a site gets bigger, it becomes harder and harder to moderate.

META THREAD ALERT

I think any talk about norms/normies/normalfags/etc has a detrimental effect on kissu or any other site. Ideological purity tests rarely have a beneficial effect, as I think people visiting here want a more laid back attitude in which a perceived hierarchy is not of anyone's concern. Personally, I don't care if you're the president of Kenya, or a serial killer, or a hermit hasn't seen the sun in 40 years as long as you're nice here.
I don't propose a ban on it, but I think people really try to avoid these dick measuring contests. What say you?

There was one post that was a bit too much for the laid back atmosphere, but it doesn't mean the poster is unwelcome.

I've done a bit of thread moving based on this diagram and deleting a few posts from /b/.

I didn't move everything that I thought was out of bounds. Only ones that seemed clear and left a ghost post to show where items have been moved to.
This diagram isn't showing what is allowed, only how I feel about the organization of what exists.

I'll be renamimng
/sum/ - Seasonal Blogging
and so on to
/sum/ - Summer Activities
/aut/ - Autumn Activities
/win/ - Winter Activities
/spg/ - Spring Activities

To make /qa/ more of a central board on the site again:
Some existing threads(relevant ones that are not too old) that have more than 5 replies which are discussing music, food, and tech on that board will be moved to /qa/.
New threads discussing the above topics will be moved into /qa/.
History and tech will stay on /sum/. Documenting events happening in that season will stay on /sum/.

If there comes a time where /qa/ is too dense and good threads are getting lost(such as the time when /jp/ was created) then this statement could become void and /sum/ will return to hosting music, food, and tech. But for now, I want to focus on how it's a board for the summer season, and not a random that conflicts with /qa/.

 No.8491

Done a bunch of moves of content that could have been in /qa/ or /jp/, but was placed into /sum/.

Tech discussion is a bit of a tricky question. One that I won't answer. If people want to discuss windows 11 it might be moved onto /qa/, but if you want to discuss tech on /qa/ or /sum/ I wont pass any judgment.

I believe this is the last of the reorganizing.

something a bit confusing.

Food is an element of the seasons. In fall is the harvest, in summer there's bbq, in winter there's roasts, in spring theres(idk what's in spring).

But there's also a crossover with blogging that goes on /qa/ so discussing food is sort of in a perilous situation where you can discuss drinking or cooking on the respective /qa/ general thread, but it also makes sense on /aut/.

Until the two /qa/ threads hit the 300 reply limit I can't exactly refine the organization of these topics so that it's clear where these things are better placed.

i must be the only one here who would be totally ok with just a single board containing everything
