Welcome to /text/!

Introduction

/text/ is 9chan's textboard. As the name implies, textboards are like imageboards but without any images. If you'd like to know more, here's a Wikipedia article about the subject.

Rules

Besides the global rules I do not intend to curate content very much. I will remove legitimate spam but otherwise feel free to discuss or post whatever you want. ASCII art is always welcome!

I LOVE LOLIS

I love them, I can’t say it enough they are so freaking adorable when they beg onee chan for food or when they have the adorable pouty face. What I love most about them is how easy they are to just pick up and take away, sometimes when I go to the park and I see a loli I run up and st- I mean carry her to my car. Where I then bring her to my house and show her my collection of my other lolis. I just love how easy they are to break and throw across the room and I love that smooth skin, yummy. I just love lolis!!!

Textboard technology

Hi,

I am a textboard maniac. In fact I even wrote the Wikipedia article for textboard. During the quarantine I've been revisiting old software projects and I have two relating to textboards that may interest the users of the board:

One is called ANUS (Anonymous Network Universal Scraper) -- after inputting a list of textboards, it scrapes indexes, and then can scrape threads if desired (eg, mirror the whole site at once, just download updated threads, etc). From there it stores all the threads and thread indexes in ./sitename-boardname/ in JSON format.

The other is called Multich and it is a different approach to textboards, inspired by Drydock, 573chan, 1chan and to a lesser extent, 8ch-like boards.
Unlike a traditional textboard there are two key differences:

>(a) threads are tagged rather than assigned to a board.

This is an improvement because it reduces redundancy and allows users to easily customize their feeds; this is similar to the "nerv" feature of 8ch, or similar to how you can browse multiple subreddits at once with the + operator (eg /r/news+worldnews+politics gives a combined thread index from 3 forums). It also allows users to filter out content they dont want to see; admins/moderators can assign or remove tags if they wish, restrict the number of tags, or leave it up to anarchy.

>(b) multiple multich sites can talk with each other

I was very inspired by "fuuka" ghost-board type of board that mirrors 4chan. For those unfamiliar, while a thread is happening on website A, users on website B can talk in the conversation thread while real-time updates continue streaming in. Given the nature of textboards disappearing over time (hence why I created "ANUS") and the annoyance of having to visit 10 different boards instead of just one site (the problem RSS and also Zonu tried to solve), each server cloning threads to its own DB maks a lot of sense

What makes multich more special than fuuka/foolz archiver is that "ghostboards" that "friend" each other start sharing their posts.
