I want to find the nice boat thread. Do you guys know of an archive that goes back that far?

General imageboard discussion, huh? Okay, how about this to get the ball rolling.

Here are a few features that will improve all imageboards:
1. No (you)s or backreplies.
This "reply" model of conversation has shifted online conversation from perusing a myriad of relatively equal opinions to a tit-for-tat "conversation" sniping. Where everyone has to get the last word, be cleverer, and always have a reply.
2. Voteban. Minimum two-hour ban. Number of votes = number of hours banned.
Society will eventually reach some kind of equilibrium. True digital democracy. Lets see what people want. Just let them finally destroy themselves and unsheathe themselves from the ashes. They'll do it to the authoritarian model of control consisting of what, a team of 30 moderators anyway. And obviously, a ton less work for the administration to do in the long-term.
3. No NSFW boards. Item two will determine the enforcement of this somewhat, maybe less at first than later on.
I know the admin of whatever imageboard needs to pay the bills but pornography really more trouble than its worth.
4. Posters treat the post number of a post as an identifier. Posters will do the same with IDs. Some sort of system that does not identify posts with IDs nor post numbers may be beneficial.
We thought we were anonymous but we built a chaos cult religion around repeating decimals instead.
4. Obviously, no catalog.
A fragmented userbase is well, disorganized. Ingroup culture becomes chaotic, with many opposing camps. A page one keeps everyone on, well, the same page.

Oh, and I don't want to see people's filenames either. Just give me the good old unix filenames. It detracts from anonymity. Anything that identifies detracts from anonymity.


The UI/UX design of our most popular imageboards (particularly (you)s) is strangling society. We can pretend we leave this stuff behind at our desks but we don't just leave it behind. We behave in these patterns for hours a day and it affects our entire mode of living. Maybe the decent of society will happen but we can soften the blow. Remember that everything in the modern human world percolates first through anonymous imageboards and we owe it to ourselves to figure these things out right.

Wakarimasen Archive just got destroyed,
That place was legit able to play webms.
Is there any way they can fix this on here (certain boards on here won't allow to play webms) or another site that does this?
