So this means we are fucked right? There's no way /3/ wouldn't be one of the first boards to get axedThe most we can hope for is a maerge with /gd/ I think
right what board is this on
>>537046the op image is from /qa/
Asian moot talked about the server overloading and they can't pay for the huge server traffic. So the boards getting the axe are probably the ones with the most population, most image wemb/gif uploads and most complained about. Which I'm thinking makes /soc/, /pol/, /int/, /gif/, /wg/ best candidates.Their server overload problem wouldn't get fixed at all if they delete /3/ or /ic/. With a slight cocky confidence, I think I can say that we are one of the most productive boards with least population, I think we're in the safe.
>>537045Highly unlikely /3/ would get axed as we are just a drop in the ocean as far as traffic goes. To solve the problems mentioned traffic heavy boards would need to be targeted such as /gif/.Only reason to delete /3/ is if neo-moot decides he don't like us.
>>537054So is this a cause of mismanagement from gook moot, or is this a problem moot faced as well? I hope he can keep 4chan afloat and not resell to someone even worse.
>>537069it's unlikely things are as bad as hiro claims, this man isn't exactly trustworthyhe made a clone of 2ch.net called 2ch.sc and put his own search engine on it so he can mine data from people using it and sell it. he makes millions of US dollars from this each year.almost exactly 1 year after he buys 4chan and suddenly there's not enough money. please, buy 4chan passes he says. i might have to add popups he says. how much money is he really making, we won't ever really know. but 4chan has a search function, just like 2ch.sc.http://pastebin.com/8bfsk6jP
The porn will get killed first.
>>537070hes going to axe us because we know the truth.rip 4 chan for real this time.
>>537069Just keep in mind that from 2009 onward, moot had managed to somehow make the site break even in profits.It was self-sustaining until hiro bought it, so he either managed to fuck everything up spectacularly in a short amount of time, or he simply wants more dosh.
>>537045Bullshit. I've seen shit like this a hundred times already. Everytime an Admin of any website brings up traffic or other excuses that the site might be crippled or is in danger, it's simply a sympathy masked lie to make profit, especially if the site has worked just fine for the last decade.He would never axe anything because he doesn't want to lose all the traffic, instead he will go with more ads or higher chan pass prizes and make more cash.
>>537070I never understood what kind of data can be mined from a site like 4chan and who it would go to. Advertisers? I would have thought that most people on here use adblock.
>>537080demographics info, connections between things that people search for (people who look for 3D also look for Maya also look for Subsurface Scattering also look for Titty Physics) for search engine optimization, how popular franchises and new films and games are.things other than straight up ads use this information, corporations will make decisions on what to fund and market outside of the internet with information datamined from it, and websites like amazon will take the datamined information to better supply suggestions for additional purchases.also 4chan is just one piece of a larger web of information to gather and users on 4chan can be traced to other websites that may also use the same services for gathering data. there are many ways of tracking individual users beyond their IP addresses, such as the versions of software installed and their installed fonts. with enough variables you can get a strong fingerprint. https://panopticlick.eff.orgi don't have my computer fully noided so while it does block a lot of things, it still has a browser fingerprint that appears to be unique because firefox reports all of my addons and screensize and OS and the versions of my addons etc.
>>537081I see. So it's one of those things that both hurt and help? Is it something we should REALLY be this worried about?
>>537045/3/ would probably be kept because it's so low traffic it'll be low bandwidth.They'll probably merge a lot of the redundant boards. /aco/ and /d/ are practically the same thing. /gif/ will get cut for being a bandwidth hog. If anything /3/ will get merged with /ic/.
They could cut a huge deal out of server traffic by decreasing the page number and post bump limit on the most populated boards. If they make /b/,/v/,/vg/, /a/, /pol/ and /tv/, it will be as effective as if they killed 3 boards without actually killing anything at all.
Please don't go /3/, you're to young for Walhalla!
>>537052this is true desuprobably merge the different gif/webm boards back into one/wg/ too is not really needed, just a hog for people to show off both that and the anime wallpaper one should go and if people want specific wallpapers they can post in appropriate boards
>>537069pretty sure moot faced it and probably why things like gold and ads beyond jlist came about
>>537080you cant underestimate how many non-savvy people would still find their way to 4chanseven with the prevalence of adblockers, ads are still a business and everywhere for a reason, they still get to people
>>537045I'm here from this thread, >>>/qa/728018 , and haven't seen anyone clamoring for your deletion.Quality board.
>>537091>Quality board.whoa there son
Don't you fuckers even joke about this board getting merged with /gd/.>"Hay guys, what font do I choose to type out for the logo I'm getting paid thousands for?" the board
>>537106I hope g00k merges /o/ and /n/. That would be pretty funny.
>>537082yes because it tracks you and they have information that includes that you have done such and so on, not just a general summarization of a big group.
Get rid of all the porn.There. Fixed almost all of the traffic problems and there are way better places for that shit anyway. Also, porn is a normie magnet, get rid of that shit.
>>537085/c/ should go, it's literally just an imagedump board. We already have boorus for that with easier searching.
>>537085Where did you get that chart?
If he was actually having these problems, he wouldn't have added a fuck ton of shitty boards.
>>537070>hottolinkIt's like he told someone "Hotlink" and they wrote it down phonetically.
>>537045why don't host slow boards on a cheaper, slower server?i'd actually agree with merging /ic/,/3/, and /gd/. there's too little traffic and too much overlapping.
>>540601I think they sorted it out already by cutting down the page limit on some boards.
>>537152>Get rid of all the porn.That won't work as well as you think it would. They'll just migrate to another board.
This board could be hosted on any of its users PCs. We don't need more than like 3 pages either. >>537173So should Half the porn boards. Merge /h/, /e/, /aco/, /d/, and make generals with a higher post limit. /vip/ is trash and should go, but if it can be used as an incentive to sell more gold passes then it's a net positive. /r9k/ and /s4s/ can just go; anything posted there belongs on /b/ anyway.
>>540622>/r9k/ can go>Wanting feelfag wizardchan rejects posting their shit everywhere else
once gook man removes /3/, I'll never forget the absolute hell I've put myself through learning anatomy while lurking at the retards posting in the WIP threads. Kill yourselves, faggots. I made it out alive, but you will forever be blender polymodelers.
>>540630>lurking at the...>calling other people retardedKYS faggot.
>>540624I only visit r9k and 3. I thought all artists were nihilistic. Dont have to go to pol now after the election.
Nah, we're not even a fraction of a percent of 4chan's resources./gif/, /hr/, /w/ and /wg/ are probably the most at risk.
