A server move will likely be done in the near future to provide upgraded hardware. This could cause a few hours to a couple days of downtime.

I said in the news post that we're going to be merging and restructuring boards, and that we'd be getting user input during this process.

Here is a first draft plan for the new board list. Please read and comment. (We will also have a process for moving threads from annexed boards to the relevant new boards.)

First Category:
/yn/ - yn general
/c/ - characters
/fg/ - fangames
/cos/ - cosplay/conventions
/yume/ - dreams

Second Category:
/o/ - oekaki/art
/co/ - comics/cartoons
/lit/ - lit
/media/ - media
/og/ - vidya

Third Category:
/hikki/ - /neet/
/ot/ - off topic
/x/ - paranormal
/sugg/ - suggestions
/wild/ - wildcard

Annex:
/t/
/comp/
/2/
/mado/
/mono/
/seccom/
/oc/
/2kki/
/flow/

Nuke:
/h/ (Original artwork can go in the art board.)

This plan would take us from 25 boards to a more reasonable 15. .Flow and Yume 2kki would be considered Fangames from now on. All of the Yume Nikki characters and their respective fandoms would be discussed in the single unified /c/. /t/ is garbage, and /h/ is a literal dump. And, even after its revival, /comp/ is still very inactive; I highly recommend visiting Lainchan as they have a much nicer tech community.

>and /h/ is a literal dump
But that's just every porn board ever. I thought that was the point, what's wrong with that?

I suggest nuking /wild/ instead. It's even more inactive and only receives a few post when the topic changes.

Noted on both accounts. I'd like to see more opinions regarding this.

I think it'd be mildly acceptable if it was just kind of crappy, but it's pretty abysmal. It tends to see a lot of junk posts, bot spam and rule-breaking content. There's billions of places where you can find better "curated" content instead of a relatively slow board. I think it serves us no purpose.

Well, that makes sense. RIP loli thread, only good thread along the laugh one.

>LOOK AT YOUR HAND.JPG

lol, no need to be salty, I was just having fun, plus /t/ received a lot of activity thanks to that.

>>2694
Adding to my opinion over /wild/, I'd like to explain why eliminating it is worthwhile. The reason is that most of the topics that can be discussed in /wild/ may as well go to /ot/ as a single thread, and would also boost activity there. Essentially, /wild/ was fun when the userbase was larger and the board received input. Not to mention that the topics are pretty lame most of the time (sorry manno).
I think that keeping the archive should be fine, but the board itself may just merge with /ot/ until uboachan gets a larger userbase again, if that happens and anyone wants it back.

 No.2699

It's good; I like it.

Yume Nikki consolidation is good. My feeling is that the website was never about Yume Nikki for me personally. I came here for the community in /n/.

Something I would suggest thinking about would be that some boards in the second category are inactive/unused enough to warrant being merged with other boards. For example, it may be possible to merge /co/, /lit/, and /media/ into one board called something like /entertainment/ or /media/. Maybe original stories could become part of /o/.

I agree that /h/ feels out of place and that there are better places dedicated to that sort of material.

I think /wild/ should be kept. It doesn't get used much, but I think it adds character to the site.

/comp/ could go either way. There are some boards that are even more inactive than /comp/ though.

I was pretty sure that was a joke, not an indication of salt. I always have fun moderating.

>The reason is that most of the topics that can be discussed in /wild/ may as well go to /ot/ as a single thread, and would also boost activity there.


The last couple years, /ot/ and /n/ have been the dominantly "fast" boards, though it's probably slowed a bit recently. While I don't disagree that we could consolidate /wild/ elsewhere, I'm not sure throwing it into the no-man's-land board would fit the purpose of wildcard themes.

>>2699
>My feeling is that the website was never about Yume Nikki for me personally. I came here for the community in /n/.

The key to this statement is that you are speaking for yourself.

>For example, it may be possible to merge /co/, /lit/, and /media/ into one board called something like /entertainment/ or /media/.


This could work if it weren't for the fact that each of those boards are a mishmash of different directions. /lit/ tends to have more people sharing their writing or poetry rather than discussing literature, /co/ has nothing to do with your own art (that's more /o/) and /media/ is a mix between independent musicians and music-related topics and such. They'd dilute each other greatly and make it harder to realistically find a topic you want or the right demographic to interact with.

Fusing the more creative-oriented boards into one would theoretically be a good idea, until you realize that you'll have one creative individual searching for art in a sea of music and writing topics and vice versa, which can end up being very frustrating.

Whoops
I've been forgetting to update /wild/ so the topics have been chosen by other staff >_>

Considering I browse via recent and hardly ever make a new post, I kinda have little opinion on the matter. /h/ would be missed, if anyone ever bothered uploading new related content. /flow/ will be missed, but at the same point dev is rather slow and the glut of general-purpose fangames has died down, so no reason not to just group them together and basically have like generals-style threads for individual games. I'd personally keep the wildcard board, it's fun.

 No.2704

To be fair, most boards aren't even used.
I'm all for removing mono mado seccom boards, or rather moving them all to yn board.

Hey, I can provide a software-based merging boards function with tag filter. See >>2635
It can,
1. Merging multiple boards as you wish, not only /yn/+/c/+/fg/+/cos/+/yume/ but also /comp/+lain/tech/.
2. User can define how to merge boards.
3. It could generate a line of boards-group from contents of the page but this was obsoleted. I'll fix this if you want.

i agree with this about /wild/

>>2701
yeah i don't think /lit/, /media/, and /co/ should be mixed. They're too separate like you said but I feel it's good to have them around. If there aren't boards for a certain topic then /ot/ will be the only play anyone posts. I could see that becoming back for ubuu's laid back more slow paced feel. I never use the catalog because it's just an extra unneeded click when the only active threads are on the front page. Only if I'm reading old stuff do I use it. I feel like without those three boards though it would feel off. /media/ gets some posts and I've gotten quite a bit of music from around there.

 No.2708

/comp/ might be sorta needless since lainchan has that completely covered.

Consolidating the fangame boards (/tkki/, /flow/) into just /fg/ would require moving threads that link to these games as well as any currently ongoing discussions about them to /fg/. But /fg/ should be seperate from /yn/ because the /fg/ content would get buried by the other /yn/ discussion. Could the proposed "/c/" just get merged with /yn/ too?

These changes would leave the "Meta" category pointless and we could remove it.

That sounds like a good idea.

 No.2710

I dunno about that. Many of the characters have their own fanbases, and merging all of their boards will already dilute the culture a little. I think merging all of that into /yn/ might be a step too far.

Not of it's a generals board and each character has their own thread.

Merging all the characters’ boards to /c/ might be for the best. I never understood why those characters had each their own board, it was probably just a matter of time till they had to be merged. Though I like /2kki/ and /flow/, merging them with /fg/ might be for the better also. Don’t know how that will go. /2/ and /comp/ were cool, sad to see them go. Won’t miss /h/, it was only good for laughs and cringes. Sadly /t/ had lost its path a long time ago. /n/ was a literal neoplasm to uboachan these past years, varying a lot between malignant and benign, and it had the annoying habit of having a ton of threads more fitting in other boards posted there under the pretext that op being a neet made them belong in /n/, and so aiding to the more fitting boards’ slow deaths. It was like ubo’s own neet cage. Maybe changing it into the new /hikki/ might turn it into something better. /uboa/ doesn’t appear on that list, I assume it will merge with /c/ too. Will /2/’s content now be posted in /co/?

Overall, I think I agree with these changes. Touching /2kki/, /flow/, /2/, and /comp/ leave me a bit restless, but ubo does need some change so I won’t mind as much sacrificing these boards for the good of the site.

>>2699

I’m not sure if that would be a good idea. It would probably create such a huge mess of different unrelated content.

 No.2799

We're mostly already in agreement here, though merging /2/ and /co/ instead of letting /2/ just die is actually a great idea and might reinvigorate the board by combining these concepts.

>>2799
Other than in comparison and contrast, do fans of Western animation/comics and Eastern animation/comics mix? Maybe an artist would say so, but how often do you hear of the two being blended other than "Let's force an anime style into this show because it's trendy" or "Yeah I liked that cartoon but they did it better in this anime".

 No.2802

>>2800
Neither of the boards have much activity on their own, so it could be worth a shot. But I'm about to make the second draft thread, so we can continue discussion there.
