>To those who do not have the literacy this tooling assumes and would prefer something a little more intensively hand-holding, more will come
Much appreciated, but is this really wise? If people who don't understand what they're doing start trying to run their own imageboards, at a time when imageboards are getting attacked like never before (not to mention the attacks on freedom of speech), couldn't they undermine the entire webring project? Or even put themselves or the anons using their site at risk?
I ask this because I don't really understand this stuff myself, and I can just imagine a scenario where someone like me tries to set up a board, but accidentally reveals their own name/location somewhere in the chain, or exposes everyone's IP addresses, or picks the wrong host and gets raided, or something equally retarded. This stuff seems like walking a very precarious tightrope, and doing so as a /tech/noob seems like walking that tightrope while blindfolded. There's also the possibility of malicious actors following these tutorials to create a honeypot to fuck everyone over.
I dunno man, I can just imagine a lot of ways that this whole "more people need to run their own imageboards, even if they don't know the first thing about running a website" thing could go horribly wrong.
