From what I've read the main confusion is the boundry that's put up between what's /jp/ and what's /qa/ so I think it's best to demonstrate the differences by example and move things around. It's difficult to explain, but I'd like to get away from the idea that things on /qa/ are high effort and things on /jp/ are low effort...
It's more that /qa/ is designed to be verbose and /jp/ is designed to be concise. A thread on /qa/ is designed to last a long time. It's the only board with 20 pages and a stronger emphasis on lifespan /qa/ and /b/ are the only boards with permanent level threads. /jp/ though is for something that you think is valuable, but should be forgotten after page 1 or 2.
A board like /sum/ is sort of the in between of a board that's designed to have anything, yet be worth little. I originally intended for it to be used to place the blog thread, but moving it seemed too disruptive. Eventually dumping the political style content that was not ill nature yet shouldn't be on /qa/ into somewhere else>>1559
From what I interpret of the layout, /sum/ is supposesd to be the blog thread put into board form... the blog thread is kind of like an IRC channel so the season boards are the closest kissu has to a true random still following the standards of quality that Cool and I established the site with.
So if you were to post something dumb onto the IRC, then it would be nice to put it on /sum/ as well.
I had this exact concern a few days back when discussing things with staff.>>1558
Not really, /all/ is the only board and the rest are simply tags that people who don't want to use /all/ can focus on.
