Vision…!!?
I want Ikouchan to be a fun comfy place.
I’m interested in adding enjoyable features and currently focusing on painting more emojis.

I hope a few more posters will frequent this place, but having too many posters may corrode post quality and I’m hesitant about advertising this place.

>Vision…!!?
Vision is everything imo. It sounds trite and businesslike, but it works and its true.

>adding enjoyable features and currently focusing on painting more emojis
Thanks for the emojis, they add color to one's response.
Makes ikouchan feel distinct and comfy, so it works toward your goal

>a fun comfy place

hmmm...
A. Well, what's fun to you?
B. Or what's comfy to you?

>fun
To make a place fun online, in my opinion, requires two attributes: collaboration/engagement and excitement (read: things to look forward to).
The best way to accomplish the above is through mutual goals/interests most likely.

1. What is the general profile of someone that goes to ikouchan?
2. What are they interested in?
3. What can they get out of abiding by the law of Japan and visiting ikouchan?
4. Does one learn more about making art, for example History? History of art?
5. What drawing software do you use to make the emojis?

>comfy
When I think of comfy, I think of a consistency of some sort.
For example, although I never go to https://twitch.tv/ there's definitely a feeling of "comfy" because of the consistent schedule streamers follow.
One starts to feel like they're a part of something.
Dark rooms with a blanket is comfy.


>hope a few more posters will frequent this place, but having too many posters may corrode post quality
Your intuition serves you well.
The issue with the Internet today isn't the amount of content, but the quality of the content.
https://blog.discourse.org/2022/08/less-vs-more-the-battle-for-better-communitie
s/

Not necessarily advocating for structure by linking this blog post.
Just referring to its main point: we don't need more content necessarily, just content that adds value to users of ikouchan.

1. What value are ikouchan users seeking?
2. What incentivizes quality content?
3. What's quality to ikouchan?

In terms of seeking quality, the hardest to figure out will be number 2.
(It's really a hard problem with no clear answer, or a lackluster one. A one where you decide that, well, perhaps an imageboard wasn't it after all.)

I think a good metric of quality for any system, any community, any interest, any website is *how it makes participants feel alive.*

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Timeless_Way_of_Building
>There is one timeless way of building. It is a thousand years old, and the same today as it has ever been. The great traditional buildings of the past, the villages and tents and temples in which man feels at home, have always been made by people who were very close to the center of this way. It is not possible to make great buildings, or great towns, beautiful places, places where you feel yourself, places where you feel alive, except by following this way. And, as you will see, this way will lead anyone who looks for it to buildings which are themselves as ancient in their form, as the trees and hills, and as our faces are.

>What can they get
Posters can use emojis and I may help someone learn about Japan or the language...?

>comfy
>consistency
Hmmm I try to paint stuff myself to make the art style consistent and hope posters can feel they are a part of this place using the same emojis.

>What incentivizes quality content?

Admin!
It's time to DREAM!

You are ETCHING in your part of the world!
What do you want to see??
Ikouchan stands testament to your POWER!

There's no reason for Ikouchan to NOT be of eternal bloom!
The cybergarden of Ikou it shalled be named in the neo-proto-Testament of the Good Ikou Word!
Museum tapestries in the year 3000 shall mark Ikouchan as the resolute turning point in the global media machine, and a binding artifice that topples all governments.

A new power rises.
So a stadium of millions sit on edge, waiting for your next word.

"PEOPLE of Ikou! Do NOT falter! The spam menace SHALL BE NO MORE!" you may burst out.

Feel the grip of time and crush it...
Look down upon your enemies and let them bow...
Bolt up, swing your cape, and waltz over to the balcony overlooking Ikou-city, a post-accelerationist hotspot to ward off the mutant parasites along the border.
Your biosoldiers will rise and salute the everlasting motto: "Comfy!"



...Humble wishes work too though.
May ikouchan prosper!

Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions.

>What amuses you most when you go out?
Hmmm... it's a good question.
Maybe three things: other people, trees, and landscapes/meadows/hills.
There's a certain portion of a park I often visit that feels like its own little idyllic "isle" – something you'd see as the title sequence to a video game with flower petals flowing through the air. Evenly spaced trees, a simple playground, and the sun casting long shadows.
Forests, and being within forests, I suppose are most amusing.


But other people, too. Sometimes you come across certain "archetypes" and I can't help but laugh/smile about it. I love coming across people.
>I hope you will meet them someday

Plato, Phaedrus:

>and now you, who are the father of letters, have been led by your affection to ascribe to them a power the opposite of that which they really possess. For this invention will produce forgetfulness in the minds of those who learn to use it, because they will not practice their memory. Their trust in writing, produced by external characters which are no part of themselves, will discourage the use of their own memory within them. You have invented an elixir not of memory, but of reminding; and you offer your pupils the appearance of wisdom, not true wisdom, for they will read many things without instruction and will therefore seem to know many things, when they are for the most part ignorant and hard to get along with, since they are not wise, but only appear wise.

>never talk to anyone when I go to parks tho
Sometimes silence is the best part about the park if you think about it. There's a lot of white noise everywhere.
But a hearty conversation does brighten a walk depending on topic

Something to always keep in mind in the US is that it's massive, and contains a huge variety of biomes within it. Regardless of how widespread cherry trees are many people will live in an are where they just don't grow. I found this wonderful set of maps (https://databasin.org/galleries/5e449f3c91304f498a96299a9d5460a3/#expand=12211) that show the ranges of a whole bunch of trees in the US. I also found this (https://www.fs.usda.gov/database/feis/pdfs/Little/aa_SupportingFiles/LittleMaps
.html
) database of even more types of trees, though it only describes the ranges textually, much harder to follow.

Is censoring or otherwise not mentioning copyrighted names or brands (even when it's appropriate) a cultural thing in Japan?
I've noticed on the About page that the character names are censored. I've been seeing that quite a bit when browsing Japanese media. For instance, ExtremeQTE doesn't mention the company names of the different controllers it needs on its page and just calls them 'company N' or 'company S'.

Many trees! Thank you!
I can't translate tree names from English to Japanese but I guess many of the trees don't exist in Japan

On the first website I can't find tree species that can be seen throughout the US. No such tree species I guess?

Though I think most cherry blossom trees in parks or along roads here were artificially planted. That's why I thought cherry blossoms could be anywhere

What tree species are you attached to?

Yeah it may be a cultural thing.
I guess we do it in a futile attempt to mitigate legal risk or perhaps an attempt to use the vague description to avoid being corrected over trivial errors? konata001

Anyways, yes, the Czech Philharmonic posters are getting out of hand, there were recently days when I banned 8 of them in an afternoon. In the afore-mentioned US-centric services most of the spammers were EU-based VPS users posting shortened links to shady Telegram channels and pastes. All of them seem to be (sadly) still humans, no kind of CAPTCHA stops them, even testing them in anime girl knowledge is of no use. konata002

Are they? I know nothing about them

>Is m pronounceable in Japanese? I've seen some people use "Gambare" instead...
Pronunciation-wise, gambare is correct I think
The Japanese language lumps all nasal consonants into one letter (ん/ン) so nasal [m] sounds in Japanese are often automatically translated into N like ganbare
I can't tell the difference between the [mf] sound of "comfort" and the [nf] sound of "confer" ranpha003

This is an interesting point.
Those who search far enough for obscure imageboards usually are lurkers.
There doesn't seem to be a solution...

I ended up thinking about all of the imageboards I've seen.
Was thinking about the meguca liveboard (you type and read others' responses in realtime with websockets)
Came across this site which details all the different forums software
https://namelessrumia.heliohost.org/w/doku.php?id=imageboard
And it had this footnote at the bottom:
"Why are textboards dead in the West"
https://bienvenidoainternet.org/world/read/1508604355/

>Textboards are only good for discussion. Sad, but Westerners just don't like discussing things. No, they like networking differently

Of course one could deny any generalization but thinking about, yes, discussing things is tiring.
Would rather just do things.
And when you do too many things then maybe you browse around for a break, but sometimes it's more exhausting

True. It can easily turn into arguments or get too serious to be enjoyable. And many ESLs could be left behind ranpha003

Many things in your daily life must be new to me!

I don't know what are ordinary cuisines in Europe. Clearly they aren't noodles or rice!
I can't name one single European supermarket, drugstore or bookstore chain

The pervasiveness of English makes me forget that others have to learn it as their second or third language
