Just a matter of scale.
I don't think it needs to be remedied, it's just how it is.
I guess. Can't help what can't be helped.
What causes them is fairly obvious. People usually aren't glued to their screens enough to keep post activity up. It's also the case that timezones pretty heavily impact these dead hours, since activity typically begins around when EST wakes up and starts dying down when EST goes to bed. In Kissu's case, activity also tends to be lower on the weekends as well. Anyways, I don't really mind them all that much. For the most part these "dead hours," just mean a delay in activity. After all, posting at those times doesn't actually do anything to your post, people will just likely not be around to reply when you are.
It's definitely possible, however, that these dead hours can influence prospective users. Quite a few times there has been people passing through calling Kissu "dead," which can seem a bit odd since Kissu usually receives ~100-150 posts per day. If I had to guess, though, it's probably the length of time for a response that irks people. After all, there's plenty of threads to engage with, so if they really cared about the topic they'd probably stick around and wait rather than getting flustered and giving up.
I mean maybe it's because there are more Europeans on alt boards? In comparison to Americans or the opposite is also possible.
>>54866>I think that dead hours are just something that's inevitable, but not really harmful
this. it’s a non-issue.
I can't notice this in slow boards because I stop browsing after I leave my post for the day.
I like that smaller imageboards are relatively inactive. It's nice to check in once a day and then go about your business. On more active imageboards (like this one), it's too easy too get sucked into a conversation and spend all day chatting about nothing.
I agree this is one of the more active ones. Probably at least in the top 20 speedwise and if you take out the hima styled blog activity from other sites then kissu may even be in the top 10
I'm not so sure about that. I don't have much experience with the webring or 8gag, but aren't the more active boards fairly large? Kissu can't really be that high up, can it?
I looked at the webring myself and the only board with a PPH that beats kissu is smug/a/. And even that board's activity is mostly contained within one big himablog thread. It's slower than kissu outside of that.
Oh actually not exactly today. There's one other thread with a bunch of posts outside of their blog that may be more active, not sure. Although I can't say it's appealing to most people here...https://smuglo.li/a/res/835399.html#841363
The webring took a nosedive a few months ago. Kissu is now the biggest up and comer in the /jp/verse. It's like ota but alive.
I think ota may be almost equally as slow as nen now actually... It's a bit sad
from what I remember the activity in other threads is on par with what it was on 8/a/
Guess there's never been a real active replacement to 4/a/ then. Which sucks because 4/a/ is trash that I refuse to use.
guess with the political situation surrounding some vtubers of course 8/anything/ would eat it up
gnfos is fucking fast but it's like /b/ of the spin-offs
also, its activity is artificially boosted by a schizo phoneposter that spams garbage there
Uh...? I don't post on gn. Or are there multiple schizo phoneposters?
Schizos tend to like those handy devices...
