> I feel imageboards and *chans in general are becoming a niche thing.
Unfortunately this is true. Meanwhule you can see that there are a lot of communities rising. I mean, look at this: http://textboard.org/prog
. It's basically a textboard with LISP enthusiastics. I feel that even though imageboards are dying, specific communities are being born in a fast-paced manner.
But as you said, it's becoming a niche thing.
>I think it's all based on what the developer is trying to achieve.
You're 100% right here I have no comments to make.
>User accounts are a highly controversial topic in imageboard software, see https://wakaba.c3.cx/shii/ for more on that.
This is an awesome reading, thank you for sharing this. As accounts I would not identify them to other users. It would have the same aspect as the "(You)". It's debatable or I could make it optional, I don't know to be fair. I would not require an e-mail I guess as it would be a hell of verified tripfags. hah
