Blog Thread: UI IssuesBring up issues for both Kissu UI.
Real numbersToday I begin a programming project to construct real numbers and various operations on them. I don't mean the wimpy limited precision floating point numbers that you've probably used if you've ever written a program in your life. Nor do I mean arbitrary precision numbers which can have as many digits as you like (until your computer runs out of memory) but still have irrecoverable rounding error because the digits end at some point. I mean exact representations of numbers that can be queried to any precision (which in practice may be limited by time and memory constraints).
Reviving the lost /qa/ in /jp/To preface, I think that /qa/ has been wonderful so far. It’s provided a place for people that want to get away from the crappiness of the modern internet and has proven to be a nice haven for those rangebanned off of 4/qa/. There’s nothing more I could ask of the admins in regards to how things have been handled so far.
General Thread: Kissu Meta DiscussionIf it doesn't fit into a thread, discuss it here.
User Contributions: CSS ThreadI figure it wouldn't hurt to have a thread focused on kissu's CSS stuff. I can blog about it and people can offer suggestions. CSS is the text that alters how stuff looks on websites. When I add in something temporarily, like little images attached to posts, it's a CSS thing.

oyasumi-chyuu.funThis is the thread for discussing improvements, fixes, additions and development of oyasumi-chyuu, a site made to house /qa/'s collection of OPs and EDs. Up until now I've been working on it on my own, but it was always intended to become a place that the community can develop together. I haven't asked for any help on it because I wanted to learn how to do things on my own, but now that it has most of the main features that I wanted to add its a good time to open it up. If it seems like a very basic site, thats because it is. I'll make a github soon enough so everyone can look at the actual files and help improve them as needed, but if theres something that you think needs to change and you know how to do it, by all means please help.

Some Dry Kissu Software HistoryA timeline for Kissu's software. Most of this information has been blogged, though the earlier stuff was lost by setting the config options on /b/ to 1 page.
Why are kissu posters so intrigued with real-life stuffs?I have always imagined that an average kissu poster is someone who is only interested in Japanese 2D media, video games, and other purely solo activities; who doesn't watch any form of 3D media including streamers; who doesn't care about anything happening in the world unless it's of direct concern of his interests; whose sole purpose of life is to practice his interests; who avoids all kinds of human interaction as much as possible; and who has zero desire to talk about anything other than his interests online.
Service Interupts: June 1stOn June 1st posting will have some interrupts while we transfer site information from one location to another. As apposed to the site reformat that happened earlier this year(>>9095), there should not be a half a day long downtime.
Feedback #7: Replace the Imageboard EnginesDev-blog iteration - 2022:
Vichan -> Tsukuyomi Drafting of new ServerHow the site roughly looks behind the scenes. I'm beginning the planning stage of replacing Vichan and rewriting the some of the other software I used to support it.
Feedback Form #1Currently running our first feedback form.
Feedback #6: Culture, Optimizations and ImprovementsThis is the next iteration of Kissu's feedback discussion AKA devblog. Though there's not much in the way of dev there are still bugs to fix. This iteration will hopefully focus on admin-blogging or tool development.
Fuck the Recursive Bible!Have any of you ever spent so much time with fundamentalists that you started thinking characters from the Bible decided to read the Bible itself to figure out what they had to do next? FUCK THE RECURSIVE BIBLE! Also, days were less than 24 hours long in the distant past, "red" was sometimes used in the Bible to describe brown objects, and most Bible-thumpers might secretly be porn addicts.
Two Theories of Imageboard ActivityWhat do you think it is that separates the qualities of a site like Nen from Kissu?
Feedback #5: Software, Eating and PeopleKissu has a unique UI. Love it or hate it, this is a big step in creating a unique identity for the site. For the next few weeks I plan to leave things as they are and gather up more bugs and issues with it.
Exploring Custom MarkupSo there's a custom markup tag on kissu, but just how creative are you able to get with this cutsom markup? Any neat tricks /b/ may know?
Notice 2021-05-04I'll delete this later.
Feedback #4: Bugs, Ideas and FeedbackLast issue established problems with Kissu's software and the need to expand into custom written user interfaces, moderation tools and customization of existing aspects.
Remove the #jp BannerFirst of all (this should come as no surprise to some of you), #jp, an IRC channel that is hosted on the same IRC server as one of our #qa channels, is filled with what we would consider "undesirable" users who post "undesirable" content. If a high standard of quality is to be kept on this site, "undesirable" users must be kept from posting.
From my emails
On Internet PoliticsRecent discourse shows there is unease around politics. But there isn't a consensus of what politics are.
About thread creationI believe thread creation to be one of the greatest deciding factors of how active a (random) board is. Just for example, take a look at kissu when it's most active (aside from meta shittery), it's always on days in which threads are made that keep the board fresh and the people within it engaged in a multitude of varying topics. So many are content with replying to content when it's created, yet by comparison very few are comfortable with creating threads of their own. What does kissu think of this predicament? I'm not saying that people should step up thread creation to the point of making stuff which is just taking a toll on themselves, that seems to backfire, but how do you inspire the masses to raise their voices on that which they want to talk about?
4/qa/ reviewThere used to be a time in which I'd use kissu, yet still check 4/qa/ wondering if everyone really had left. I'd see some threads that indicated there was a soul on there I may be able to still connect with who still hadn't made the move away. That time is long gone now and I can't remember the last time I even had the urge to look at the board until today. I've got to say it was a completely foreign sight, akin to how I'd view /bant/ back in the days when 4/qa/ was thriving (/bant/ was better but that matters not). A board that seemed to be "alive" in some technical sense of the word while completely unappealing or devoid of what made it good to begin with. I went into the singular familiar thread, The Happenings Thread, only to see that it was not even a shadow of its former self. Rather it seemed to have transformed into some frankenstein's monster that now resembles more a typical general on that accursed site. I'm not too sure what to conclude this with, as these ramblings are a mere result of my curiosity getting the better of me to check on the place I used to call home. If there was any takeaway I'd say this, that it sure made me glad for this place's existence.
Feedback #3: Bugs, Ideas and FeedbackThe site's core features are still good, but the battle against bugs is never ending.
The overboard is a fantastic conceptIt solves the problem people have with /qa/ threads dying too fast, and the issue people have with not feeling that they can create as many threads as they can. /jp/ created threads only bump off /jp/ threads, which are more dumb and people don't care as much about or think will fit all that well or meet the quality standard of /qa/. While on the other hand threads that are made on /qa/ aren't killed off as fast. This was an issue that people had brought up for a while, suggesting all sorts of fixes like half-bumps or semi-stickies for the better threads, but unintentionally they were solved by the inclusion of a secondary board and overboard. Limiting the potential harm that people suggested a second board would cause is also a plus.
Improvements to /all/This is a summary of alterations.
