I've been studying imageboards and how they fall, work, etc., and I think I have a nice blueprint for a /late/ replacement and renovation. Needless to say, this elaborate plan betrays my autism and isn't concrete. There are certain things I feel are vital, however. I have no talent in programming or web hosting, but I wood be more than happy to contribute funds or volunteer time to see this habben.
I think either LateChan or LoreChan fits nice (you'll see why), but I really don't care what it's called.
This new site wood consist of multiple boards, in order to better focus content, and for reasons you'll see further herein. I am adamant that this site should be as lightly advertised as possible, decline connection to the webring, and overall focus on a discoberry-basis for entry. The reasons for this are twofold. For one, it will keep halfchan and redditfags to a minimum, at least for awhile. It will also (along with other features) keep inter-site drama (see zzzchan and 8kun) drama to a minimum.
/sanctuary/- A board dedicated to comfy material and generally a space to hide from normals.
/lore/- A board for sharing, recalling, and cataloging internet/nostalgic history (think ChrisChan dumps or early YouTube content), as well as 1980s-2010s culture.
/x/- A standard paranormal board, barring succposting and mysticism. Think of this as creepypasta/X-Files and /fringe/ as halfchan's modern /x/.
/v/- A bimeo james board, nothing more or less.
/biz/- A business and finance board, with less emphasis on crypto and daytrading. and more on long-term, secure growth (as well as other non-investment topics).
/prep/- A /k/ board with additional topics of homesteading, prepping, and other practical matters.
/wiz/- The first containment board, for holding wizard or /r9k/ posts, 'incel' content, etc. SFW to keep loli/fag caca to a minimum. Posting about wamen moments or chuds is to be disallowed on all boards save this and free, notwithstanding the exceptionally rare circumstance of it being on-topic.
/fringe/- A board for tarot, mysticism, gnostic posts, lucid dreaming, etc. As a general rule, i it doesn't fit in History Channel or the Matrix, it goes here instead of /x/.
/free/- The random board, also used as a site wide trash board (hence not being called /b/). Any and all lewd threads deemed unique enough to exist belong here.
I based this provisional list on my best estimation of the trends of threads on /late/, which suffered from threads being moved around too much by varying interests (a problem natural to all over-concentrated boards). As is obvious, no one Anon can predict the future or know all necessary boards, and as such I will explain how boards can be added momentarily.
The board management must be altered, as made plain by the sudden deletion of /late/. It is completely unreasonable for one autist to be able to rob the site from all others when he acquires butthurt or a rope. Therefore, I propose a 'Viceroyalty' system for the admin/mods. Each mod in this model wood take ownership of a board of their specialty, with the admin being voted as a first among equals. That way, if the admin vanishes, all board owners have admin access as to keep the site running until matters can be resolved. This also resolves the issue of board owners vanishing without replacement, as on EndChan, as once a vassal owner vanishes, the admin can appoint a new one immediately without having to deal with the claims system and the accompanying empty boards. It will also allow for an individual-basis system of rules, without the cross-board staff of other sites (though site rules will exist obviously). I told Quilt via email that the newfags wood ruin /late/, and I don't want to see that habben here. As for board creation, I propose a compromise between halfchan and 8kun. No Anon can make a board, but with popular request and the consensus of the assembled staff, a new one can be created and an owner appointed. This will also help avoid board abandonment with replacement of deserters and a lack of flooding the site with redundant boards.
That's all I have for now, thanks for reading this quacking Great Wall of Autism, and like I said, I am at all my frens service whenever needed.
