Inch clone Aryachan 0f18a9 04/07/2021 (Wed) 05:39:15 7848
Over the past couple weeks but especially since two days ago there seems to be a lot of dissatisfaction about the faggotry of inch jannies and inch in general. Maybe the time is ripe for a new chan, without the jannie faggotry / constant flood detected/ banning for no reason / tolerance of cp / perpetual caste nignoggery

Some guy a couple weeks ago was discussing starting a new chan (aryachan or something) but he never followed through with it, idk if he's still planning to. I have decent coding skills, maybe I could start it myself. Would there genuinely be interest in an improved inch clone or would it be a waste of money?

A chan is always waste of money

Here's an unorthodox idea. Don't make a chan. Coding is tough and moderation is hard. And no, not 8kun too, that's still around the same. What you could do is, make a discord.
>Inb4 muh trannycord gtfo go back to plebbit
Stop spouting buzzwords and hear me out. What are the main problems here.
What if you could tie the illegal content to a user? Since it's discord people will be more considerable about posting such things. And you can instantly see who posted what and remove them if you wish. Moderation is very precise and advanced as compared to a website. If you are willing to code, maybe look into bots that make moderation efficient. Plus no raids, spam detection is excellent. If you want a lockdown you can revoke all invites and shut it down. And overall, better platform. It's hard to implement a chan system, but we can sure as hell be better off than this chan

Ik that Chan's are different than chatting, but think about this idea for a moment. You can still discuss things with people, share images and reply. I am not sure but I think there is a bot that can create temporary channels. Lots of ways to implement this, or just use it like a chatting platform
anon d08917 04/07/2021 (Wed) 06:05:35 7852
Anon, even though It isn't an image board after that, I do like the idea regarding the moderation. It just becomes a discussion area then, not exactly an image board but sure. This will also do a lot of things.
>No more northie southie, you can just ignore discussion regarding that
>No more bimaru vs whatever, you can just ignore the discussion, and since people will know who makes that type of post, it will be easy to just tell them to stop with the same old crap.
>No more need for jannies, if you set up bots good enough, then you could essentially just let the server be, and even with so many jannies here, the board is still shit. mods will just hang around, and roles can be given in a second. Clear up is easy, and you can set a cooldown. It won't be a chan, but the essence will carry on without the problems.
anon 0f18a9 04/07/2021 (Wed) 06:05:53 7853
Only like $40 a year or something, not a big deal for me. Especially if I take donations

Interesting idea but id like it to be an independent site (ie. Not reliant on a corporation like discord), public facing, no need to create an account, etc. Having to create an account automatically limits the userbase, there already exist a couple inch related discord servers and they have like 50 members total afaik. Whereas there are definitely more total users on Inch, who (like me) are reluctant to create an account. And the anonymity of chans is a beautiful thing that can never truly be captured on Discord

Moderation is difficult but I'm online quite often. I'm in an American timezone, if I hire a couple reliable Indian jannies we should be in good shape to stop spammers/raiders.

>Coding is tough
The lynxchan source is public, I can just copy that with a couple modifications and customizations.
anon 8442cf 04/07/2021 (Wed) 06:08:03 7854
Just do it
You don't need coding skills just good judgement wrt people and communities
anon 0f18a9 04/07/2021 (Wed) 06:12:58 7855
Exactly, at that point it isn't an imageboard. There are already a couple inch discords, I don't see the point in making a new one

Yeah it should definitely be pretty simple to create, I just want to make sure there's enough interest. I don't want to drop $40 just to have 5 users show up and then the chan dies within a week
anon 89a445 04/07/2021 (Wed) 06:13:31 7856
Jannies get corrupt, they take too long to do their job. Yes it will lose the anonymous part but, I'd be down for it. Tbh I don't care about the amount of members. It's all just the same threads, and anything creative gets shot down by saying gtfo newfag or something. It's like some people have a different idea of what they want this chan to be. And concerning userbase, we're not here to make money, if you are then sure you can put up ads but chans are a bad investments, only porn ads and other shitty ads. If you're just concerned about users not coming, then don't worry, lots of Indians use discord and lot of inchis do too. It can bring in a whole new group of people.
>Inb4 newfags NOOOOO
This site has not had a lot of good new people, only redditors who hate this site. Maybe the few good were the guys who are running the Inch times or the guys who make fashwave. But besides that it's a cesspool, of the same old hate regurgitating on and on. I am on board with the server idea, it may be dependent on discord but it will sure as hell be new and fresh for a long time
anon 006e8c 04/07/2021 (Wed) 06:18:47 7857
Bro but at that point, it's not an inch server. Its a whole new thing independent from the idea of India chan. Once you make an inch clone, no one really new is gonna come. It's going to be the retards from this site, who will check it out and maybe use it. Same thing different name. This means the same cp posters. And I don't think jannies really care. You'd need like 10 at least to make sure you get round the clock insurance that no cp gets posted. And how will you maintain board quality? Since it's the same people they will be same. Same old shit everyday. God these fuckers here hate change so much, if they see anything new they just shit on it so fast the creator moves to reddit. Thats why people use reddit more, even reddit has its problems but it's got one good thing, it does support new ideas on merit.

I still like the idea of an actual imageboard better, but since there seems to be so much demand for a Discord server, I'll start one in a few minutes. I can also create an imageboard in a few days if there ends up being demand.

I'll post here with a different ID since I'll be turning off my VPN, just watch for the tripcode.
anon a8c9d2 04/07/2021 (Wed) 06:38:15 7859
there is already a discord
anon 4f2922 04/07/2021 (Wed) 06:46:24 7860
This. Dickord is for fags
Make another chan. Decentralisation of Indian imageboard business is need of the hour not another dicklord server
anon 006e8c 04/07/2021 (Wed) 06:57:34 7861
Don't make the server. I am making one, and it won't be just a discord server like the inch one.
>We already have a discord
It's dead, and even if it wasn't it's got the same people who talk about the same things.
Aryachan#Vv3xyU b96772 04/07/2021 (Wed) 07:01:22 7862
Here's the server link.
anon b96772 04/07/2021 (Wed) 07:02:17 7863
I already made one. Anyway, if I'm creating the new imageboard I want to be in control of the server.
anon e29f22 04/07/2021 (Wed) 07:20:32 7864
The tranny developers at Discord decided to lock me out of my account and prevent me from verifying with my phone number because I was using a VPN, kek. I've emailed support asking them to unlock my account but it'll probably take a while.
This is the kind of thing that made me so reluctant to create a Discord account in the first place, lmao. It's a nigger-tier platform made by and for niggers.
I'll try to get my account unlocked but I might just make another server. Sorry for the trouble if anyone has already joined.
Aryachan#Vv3xyU e29f22 04/07/2021 (Wed) 07:20:49 7865
I'm OP by the way.
anon e29f22 04/07/2021 (Wed) 07:33:58 7866
Alright well they probably won't unlock it anytime soon and I can't create a new Trannycord server because they'll ask for a phone number and I don't have another one, so there goes that idea.
If you want to make a server go ahead I guess. I think I'm going to go ahead and create another imageboard this coming weekend. >>7860 raises a good point that this is literally the only Indian imageboard in existence. So even if Aryachan (or whatever I call it) initially has few users, it will inevitably gain more over time as people get dissatisfied with Inch and have nowhere else to go.
anon e29f22 04/07/2021 (Wed) 07:36:22 7867
For now, please continue to reply in this thread if you want to express interest in the new imageboard or have any ideas/suggestions for it.
anon 2f312d 04/07/2021 (Wed) 07:40:45 7868
if you do wish to make one, please have automatic moderation regarding illegal stuff, and raids. I just want better moderation than inch
anon 2f312d 04/07/2021 (Wed) 07:42:31 7869
auto mod because having that is better than jannies, and this will require only a few jannies. something to make sure no nsfw gets posted. And a proper reporting system, not a literal thread to report shit in.
anon 2f312d 04/07/2021 (Wed) 07:46:25 7870
Btw, can we think of something new instead of just a chan? new name for it like shri or something, something that is Indian
anon ab0245 04/07/2021 (Wed) 08:13:35 7871
You need a fagbook group not a chan
anon e29f22 04/07/2021 (Wed) 08:18:37 7872
I'll see what I can do. I'm not aware of any automod systems that currently exist for imageboards.

Yes, I think a reporting system shouldn't be too hard to implement if it isn't already the default in the lynxchan source.

You mean replacing the -chan suffix with something like -shri? I feel like people wouldn't associate the site with imageboard culture then. Most imageboards for other nationalities still keep the -chan suffix.
anon 2f312d 04/07/2021 (Wed) 08:19:36 7873
A new suffix yeah. Also I think the name might invite aryan larpers, which ruined pol
anon e29f22 04/07/2021 (Wed) 08:31:45 7874
The original intent of "Arya" was that it was going to be a board centered around upper-caste people, so as to prevent all the caste nignoggery that happens on Inch, but I don't think that's necessary. All castes can be welcome. Maybe I can just create a containment board for caste/region shitflinging, separate from the /pol/ board.
But anyway yeah, feel free to suggest an alternative to "Arya".

I thought about it a bit more and you're right, it's fine if it ends in something other than "chan". People will pick up on the fact that it's an imageboard anyway, just from the interface.

I don't really like "shri" (especially since it's usually a prefix, not a suffix, and also the spellings vary a lot—some people write "sri"). Something like "ji" sounds fine imo. What do you think of the name "7ji"? Looks like I can get some decently priced domains for 7ji despite the short name.

Can someone send an invite link to the Inch Discord server(s)?
anon 6bb7ca 04/07/2021 (Wed) 17:26:41 7893
Can it be decentralized? Each board owned by different people. That would be better I think

Hey everyone,

I'm really sorry to disappoint you. I've decided to back out of creating the new chan. I talked with a bunch of people on Discord throughout the day and there isn't really much demand for it aside from a couple people who posted on this thread and joined my server. There were a couple people who showed a lot of enthusiasm like the news poster, but the general consensus seems to be that even if people find flaws with inch, they'd prefer to stick with it instead of moving

Also, I've been spending too much time on inch recently and creating a new chan will just make it even worse. So even if there does end up being a lot of demand and a new server is created, I shouldn't be the one to do it. I'm sure there are plenty of other people with basic technical skills to set up a lynxchan clone

Again, apologies for making all these promising plans for a new chan and then taking them back in the end. I hope this thread is still useful for anyone in the future who plans to create an inch alternative. I do think there are a lot of problems with inch (not just the userbase, but the site itself) that will end up creating more and more demand for a new Indian imageboard over time, so it will probably be created eventually. But maybe now is not the right time.
