On my list right now are:
> reply system that supports federation
> anti spam features
> adding div and span and css blah blah blah
> making it easy for people to set up their own multichan
> import threads from kareha and emanon etc textboards
Any other features that would make multich better? like [code] or [no bump], [poll] or things like that.... tripcodes? IDs?
I could also make a #multich IRC channel or Mastodon bridge...
All three of those also sound like good ideas. To add on top of that id like to suggest a view that lets us see the last post or two in a thread.
cookie based styles instead of jewscript
option to set maximum characters in a comment
need to make a clock dial captcha questionaire thing
Right now the current >>reply system only works if the reply is formatted like >>http://0chan.vip/3 or >>2 at the beginning of a line.
It looks like this:
Maybe later it will look like this:
>>1,4 I suggest captcha on same page too
Well, now the site will show a "please fill out the captcha" message instead of a reply form.
> option to set maximum characters in a comment
You mean that the OP could set a character limit for replies to his thread? It's an interesting idea, but I don't think it plays well with federation.
The admin of a board can set a site-wide character limit. This is 10,000 by default, like dis.tinychan.org uses.
I like the background color a lot, but could you make the posts less saturated? I like the way the site looks... for the most part. I like the elite club feel, as well as the playing cards casino references. Maybe make the posts a nice neutral (not saturated) yellow, like ochre yellow... just more white. Or nah, keep it green and turn the saturation down. it does look nice.
OPTION TO <CENTER> THE WHOLE SITE
NO TRIPCODE < why not? are you going to say forced Anonymous next? Are you secretly Shii?
>are you going to say forced Anonymous next?
>Are you secretly Shii?
Maybe support for multiple sortings in the index? I'm not a big fan of sorting by latest bump.
>center the whole site
I know it would be bad but I kind of have this temptation too.
hate button just the HATE button
Once I add ATOM feeds it'll be pretty easy to make a bot that tweets whenever a new thread is created (especially on Mastodon/Pleroma).
 - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atom_(Web_standard)
I just noticed that the <title> tag does not reflect the thread subject so it gets messy if you start bookmarking thread.
I haven't added an admin panel yet, mainly because other people aren't running multichan servers or, if they are, they haven't reached out.
For fun, as a side project, I'm thinking of writing an ayashii world clone (see https://i.imgur.com/wfMX60O.png ). Ayashii World is very Brutalist but what's interesting is that discussion threads are trees, rather than a chain.
Tags + trees + federation could be fun...
are you feeling cuckheld yet?
>I'm thinking of writing an ayashii world clone
now that is epic
seems interesting, but this has the incredible issue of having a 4chan-derived userbase
Why not just use ATOM feeds or JSONfeeds?
JSONfeeds are pretty nifty; check out this article:
> Mapping RSS and Atom to JSON Feed
NNTPchan dev says it was a pain to moderate.
HTTPS for hiding your footprint from ISP.
RSS for new posts in specific tags
add a #top / #header and #bottom / footer anchor to quickly reach the top and bottom of a thread.
The numbering is kind of confusing. Maybe it'll make sense eventually, but why not have a universal numbering system among multiple instances?
