Adressing Technical Errors on SH [Link]
StrawberryHeaven is currently being restructured to fix several bugs. Please hold.

Heyuri & Reunification [Link]
I have wrote about the future of SH, Heyuri, and about re-unification.

Overhaul [Link]
I have completely reworked the front page of KolymaNET, and simplified some of the PHP involved in this blotter script. The entire Kolyma Network site has been re-done, every page. I implore you to come look at it.

so, what do we plan on doing in regards to OC? We can't just simply rip off of heyuri's oc and make it our own. we, just like heyuri did, would have to make our own oc if we want this site to be like heyuri was. of course, pic is related. i call her Sanami-san (we need to get the ball rolling somehow.) of course, if you can do better or if you have a better name or whatever do so, dont hesitate to make oc! that is what will make this community flourish.

The best part is that nobody was using the terms "newfag" or "oldfag" until around 2007, so you can safely ignore any of the self-appointed Oldfags™ who use them unironically

Even "noob" was mostly just a joke, poking fun at l33t h4x0rz and gam3rz who took their hobbies too seriously

Responding to NF's reply here because I don't want to shit up /b/ with moar meta:

>I do not see the point of this essay, Heyuri is dead.

I don't consider Heyuri dead personally, at least not yet - it's been down for a little under 6 weeks as of right now, and a little under 4 weeks if you include the revival attempts. Nevar forget that 4chan was pronounced dead back in mid 2004, and remained dead for a total of 7 weeks before it was eventually brought back to life (and the rest is history)

>If Strawberry Heaven wants to succeed it must accept that the Heyuri is a thing of the past and move on.

My opinion is that there's no real reason for anyone besides SH/Kolyma's staff to be invested in StrawberryHeaven or its success just yet, especially if it were to distance itself from Heyuri's legacy and culture (the Heyuri connection is pretty much the only reason why I come here)

I say this for a number of reasons:

As of right now, the only thing this place has over Heyuri and all the previous attempts at reviving it is an absence of spam... but there's also an absence of posts that are not spam, so that's not much of a plus point yet (。_。)

So yeah, I don't think we can declare Heyuri dead or act like this place is in any way a viable replacement just yet - in its current state it's little more than a refuge

hey~

I am the temporary administrator during kuznetsovs absence, and i will attempt to help these troubles. I do not speak as good english as kuznetsov but I will help where i can.

---------
For the most part, yes, you are correct, StrawberryHeaven suffers from alot more technical problems then Heyuri did. We essentially hade a tradeoff, either we get the spam and downtimes of heyuri, or the technical downsides of SH. It seems neither can have the benefits of erachother.

I personally propose that Riley set aside his differences with Kuznetsov, and that Kuznetsov will do the same to the counterpart.

I say this as we come and see problems towards sh that heyuri never had, and the problems heyuri had, that sh doesnt. I believe that whatever it may be, SH, or Heyuri, needs both to function. Both administrators had expert knowledge on core subjects, and when functioning together, they could bring about a much more propserous site. StrawberryHeaven without some of Rileys expertise is lacking, and Heyuri2 without Kuznetsov, his userbase, and his knowledges, will lack important things.

Due to the source code still being avaliable to Both administrators, putting it back on kuznetsovs servers would be relatively easy. The fact that it is public now? No problem, a open source heyuri is a better heyuri.

In short, i am saying that without either, both fail. Heyuri doesnt have to be dead, but it will continue its staleness without kuz, and SH will remain sub-par without Riley.

I hope my best that the 2 will find a peaceful conclusion, and that SH will merge into heyuri, or heyuri into SH. The sites share alot of the same users, culture, and history. Why must we fight?

Asking Heyuri to "reunify" with SH is like asking South Korea to reunify with North Korea.
It's not going to happen. I'm cutting ties completely.
If you found Heyuri through 9chan I do recommend you do stay here, the Heyuri you want will never come back, but SH can become the next best thing (or better [for you]).

>> No.6  

>>5
OP here - I didn't find Heyuri through 9chan, in fact I'd never even heard of 9chan (at least not a kuz-owned or Russian-language 9chan) until I saw it mentioned on Heyuri - and I still highly doubt all the dubious and sourceless claims made about it

That said, the "Heyuri" I refer to was more than just "an imageboard owned and developed by lolico featuring a star logo", in the same way 4chan was more than just "an imageboard owned and developed by moot/team 4chan featuring a 4-leaf clover logo". It was more than simply whatever website that you (lolico) personally decided to work on, and more than just the combined administrative efforts of lolico + kuz (or lolico + cavalier as it was when I first found it)

Heyuri was the userbase, the rules, the style of moderation, the boards, the culture, the features, the history, the CSS (and its hax), the GETs, the OC, the easygoing nature, the lack of angry faggots, the funny/interesting threads, the never having to wait around long for a reply, the waking up every morning and rushing over to your PC in excitement to see what new posts had been made as if everyday was Christmas, and the working on your next Heyuri-related project/OC that you can't wait to show everyone

That's the Heyuri I speak of, that I miss, and that I want back - not the egos involved, nor the childish arguments said egos partook in (which were often so retarded that for a long time I thought you guys were just roleplaying as a dysfunctional couple for the LOLs)

If anything, it would probably be for the best if someone completely unrelated to the people involved with running former-Heyuri or its offshoots were to take up the mantle, as unrealistic as that prospect sounds - to place it in your own analogy, I'm not interested in oppressive and walled-in North Korea, or plastic and soulless South Korea; I want grorious Japan! (with Yuki-chan as Prime Minister, Empress, worshipped deity, and national symbol of cute and virility)

Hello. I come once again to speak to you all. Use this thread as discussion.

So, it seems the #1 complaint of all time in SH is the lack of features heyuri had, and the fact that it is lacking technologically in some places. We already recieved all of your complaints and suggestions, so, in this thread, I will present you lot with 2 options.

1) Me, Kuznetsov, Yaril, and DCPDEV spend several months creating a new IMGboard software from scratch, with all the features that you all wanted, (and without the ones you didnt want), and we come out with a quality, well built, fully equipped softwware.

2) We try to stick with the current software and fix the issues where we can. (Shorter time than option 1)

3) We use a 3rd party software or fork a 3rd party software (suggestions welcome) (this is also much shorter than option 1 but might not be as favorable to some)

Discuss.

I choose whichever option will actually bring about the features in question, and won't lead to eternal development hell or subpar results!! ^^

Option 1 would obviously be the most desirable (at least in a hypothetically perfect world), but it's at high risk of never being completed, and you will be reinventing the wheel for the most part (NIH syndrome is a bitch, especially if you're short on competent developers with lots of free time and enthusiasm, like most imageboards are). I'm not fully convinced that this is a viable option... but I'm happy to be proven wrong!!

Option 2 seems like a no-go - if the current setup was workable then surely we'd have some of those missing features by now, and we wouldn't still be replying to post No.1 in every thread

Option 3 is the "easy option" in terms of getting something up and running quickly, but will probably suck hard unless you:

  • choose the software very wisely (many of the older scripts that would best fit our desired functionality/aesthetic are riddled with vunerabilities and performance issues, many of the newer ones are too far departed from the traditional Futaba/old-4chan functionality/aesthetic to be worth it, and over the years I've heard many admins complain about just about all of them in terms of how unworkable and poorly coded they generally are)
  • have developers on hand that can actually work with the codebase
  • don't make the same mistakes as all the crappy template imageboards out there who just change a few logos/banners, throw some spaghetti CSS on top of the stock frontend, and call it a day

There is also Option 4, although I'm not sure about the moral/legal aspect of it...

Revive old Heyuri code!

I'm unaware as to how much of the final version of Heyuri's software anyone has access to, but the older Sakomoto version wasn't TOO disimilar from the script that replaced it (at least from a user's perspective), and the end result would be something very familiar. It's open source (GPLv3), and comes with many of the features you'd otherwise be spending hours/days/weeks/months working on straight out of the gate: https://github.com/rileyjamesbell/sakomoto

Just to remind everyone what it looked like (and why I strongly believe SH needs to improve A LOT before it can be considered a successor to Heyuri), here's some archives of Sakomoto-era Heyuri:

This feels like a shitty memechan even when you push it as if it's an attempt at an 'old 4chan' feel. Be honest and pick one side or the other. Don't be a faggot and have meme boards while claiming you're aiming for simplicity, minimalism, and old Internet feels.

Guys in this thread, don't get angry. Every chan that uses frames and has 2005 era azumanga memes as banners is judged as "another one of those sites" and for good reason. The few sites that have an "old vibe" that are respected and have a userbase that comes back are sites that have actually existed since the early 2000s (ie; SAoVQ and 4-ch).

Perhaps an explanation of what this place actually is, is needed

This site, as it exists right now, is essentially a hastily cobbled-together stopgap made sometime after Heyuri (and a couple of other stopgaps along the way) crashed and burned in a fire of spam and hax. It exists so that users of the old site have at least something up and running for the time being, until a true successor is ready to fully house our brand of faggotry

Most of the former userbase is currently holed up off-site and masturbating furiously to yuki-chan, and thus have largely not moved over to here yet - not least because this iteration is still in a barebones state, and is missing most of the old features and assets that we used to have. Major changes to the board software are in the works, which is why some of us are hesitant to make ourselves at home just yet

While our old site did have an undeniable "old internet" sentiment to it, and a userbase that bathed in nostalgia like a junkie bathes in opioids, it wasn't trying to emulate old 4chan specifically, as many assumed (and continue to assume) at first glance - at least, not beyond the fact it was an English-language Futaba-clone with an emphasis on anime and internet humor, as well as a couple of old 4chan-derived features that we liked (OK, maybe it was a little old-4chan inspired...)

Places like this naturally attract oldbies and noobs alike who often desire to relish in all the old memes, macros, and catchphrases of the past - acts of which are likely seen as forced and "uh, LAME" to outsiders looking in. However, it's not all reposts of old 4chan crap - we've made plenty of our own crap too! (And some of that crap was actually quite good - pic related, it's Heyuri-tan!!)

So while this particular instance of this particular site might not carry a legacy in its name equal to that of the other places you mentioned, we're still keeping one of the flames of the old interwebs alive in our own, special, semi-retarded way

They do exist, but you have to look past the many political baiters, social engineers, low-effort trolls, and disenchanted older users to notice them, which admittedly isn't an easy task

8chan and it's spinoffs on the other hand developed a very pessimistic, neurotic, and stubbornly moralistic nature to them, with a million different made-up formatting/lingo rules and supposed faux-pas that none of us back in the day ever used or took notice off, which drove away many of the older imageboard users and killed off the steady influx of new users

It's a shame because I once had great hopes for 8chan and enjoyed a lot of the early niche and creative boards (as well as making my own), but that's all gone now. All that's left behind today is a core of generally very humorless and unlikable people, whose remaining communities are in the midst of a death spiral

Being around those places is very draining and disheartening, and I'm glad people are working on sites like Heyuri and SH where the users are free to have fun instead (^▽^)

I don't think you can blame 8ch users for being sour. [spoiler]Our[/spoiler] whole history is basically one of being antagonized, betrayed and hounded. It's all fun and games until you start being noticed, and you have to deal with people actively trying to drive you out and destroy you. I can understand not wanting to associate with the "8chan diaspora" and honestly I wouldn't even encourage it unless you know what you'd be getting into and who you'd make into an enemy.

I was along for the whole ride, and I think the negative attention was mostly a self-fulfilling prophecy

When the majority of the userbase only ever focuses on sociopolitical crap, and everyone's too busy playing "spot the 'shill'/'SJW'/'kike'/'normalfag'/'newfag'/'halfchanner'/'redditor'/buzzword-of-the-week" to allow for any good old-fashioned interwebs fun, you develop a very angry and paranoid userbase that attracts negativity and drives out all the funny and creative users that make imageboards fun places to be in the first place

Frames can be optional, just don't remove them completely. I liked the frontpage, it gives the RaspberryHeaven flavor. For the software, just do whatever would be easier for you. If you are going to recreate every post, I think it is not too late yet! I don't know about teh programmings, but maybe we or mods could help too by reposting everything in date order if you make an early access to the new software?

Yes, optional!

I won't lie - the current setup is kinda shitty. I'm not sure what it is exactly, but it just doesn't inspire me to post or make stuff, despite me being very active back on Heyuri

The per-thread post numbers (RIP GETs ;;), no original filenames (mah old UNIX timecode e-peen ;;), HTML tags being added to posts once they're submitted (which fux up all ur formatting), none of the cute/fun features we had back on Heyuri... SHIT SUX!

>and front page (see: newspost)

The current front page is OK, but I think it might just need more refinement. I really liked the one Heyuri used to have, particularly in the pre-June "Sakomoto" days. The Haruhi one though... WTF o_0

>removing some boards due to inactivity

I'm all for it - there are WAY too many boards for our current population size, and most of them are just legacy 4chan boards that had a reason to exist for them back in 2003/2004, but don't necessarily make sense for us here today

My opinion is that all we need right now is /b/ the imageboard, /f/ the flash board, and /q/ the meta board) and everything else belongs on /b/ until proven otherwise. Any new types of board should get their own dedicated board (such as an uploader board, an oekaki board, a textboard, and so on), but multiple instances of the same board type should only be made when they are required, rather than desired

Consider that the only boards on Futaba that have extremely high levels of activity are Nijiura may and img (those two boards alone make up for 96% of the entire site's activity, which is approximately 13,000 PPH... each!!), and the only board on 4chan that had tons of activity prior to the massive population growth in 2007/2008 was /b/ (which also made up 95-99% of the entire site's activity)

>Also I think the site doesn't have the traffic it deserves yet, so please go easy on taking action against inactive boards for now!

I'll be honest and say that found this site outside of the circles most of the users here are from, hailing from the webring and a few other ib's, and I've browsed through a lot of ib's for fun over the years so I'd hope I know what I'm talking about.
I find that new sites with a small to nonexistent userbases and a ton of boards tend to die off quickly. People are likely to click off your site when they see that 90% of the boards contain no content. This is made worse with sites without an overboard. It's hard to tell if any parts of the site are active at all without one, especially when there's 10+ boards!
You can see this phenomenon at it's worst with sites advertising user board creation as their main feature. People tend to try and recreate every single 4chan and 8chan board that ever existed on these sites and you end up with 200 boards on a site with no users. Really, you can only get away with this kind of thing if you have a fairly large userbase migrating to another site at a very rapid pace. That's why 8chan could deal with so many boards so quickly early on and other sites can't.
