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.
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?
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).

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.
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.
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.

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.
