    IQfys big turn off for redditors (like it or not they are our neighbors and more like us than normies) is probably content moderation and a lack of account customization. While the latter would never work with imageboard culture, the moderation part maybe can? I don't think evils like up- down- dooting here, but still something crowdsourced instead of jannies.

    I grew up with bulletin board forums, and to this day I find myself most comfortable when using them as opposed to Reddit or Discord. Anonymous imageboards are nice and they're the only kind of forum I use nowadays, but sometimes I want to have a persistent identity, an online ego so to speak, which is why my ideal board would be somewhat of a mix between a traditional forums and an imageboard. I haven't thought about this idea enough yet so I won't go into specific features.

    What I like about the internet is that it is a forum for ideas/art/arguments/etc. that is able to be much less regulated than any real-life equivalent. If you know about the wisdom of the crowds, you probably know about how that effect breaks down when an individual has to sacrifice something personally to express certain ideas. In the real world, this is used to sway public opinion by shaming individuals, producing financial incentives for their conformity, and providing a sense of community/belonging to them for adhering to a group of beliefs. A truly free "marketplace of ideas" is impossible in the real world.

    The great thing about the anonymous forum/imageboard format is that, in contrast to pretty much any public-forum in history besides maybe graffiti, it incentivizes and rewards controversy as opposed to conformity. When a thread gets a reply, it is bumped to the top. Simple. The incentive isn't to post mundane crap that everyone already agrees with- it is to generate as many replies from people arguing with or debating or insulting or laughing with one another as possible. To write a YouTube comment that gets seen, you need to regurgitate a joke that's been done to death. To write a Reddit post that gets popular, you need to say something agreeable while staying on the mod team's good side. To make a successful YouTube video, you have to structure it in accordance to a cryptic ever-present algorithm.

    In contrast, the anonymous imageboard system is largely self-moderating, so you don't need an army of mods or a centrally controlled content algorithm to decide what gets seen. It is disagreeable and inflammatory by its very nature- a true marketplace of raw and dirty ideas free from restrictions. Of course, IQfy still has mods, but without their obvious necessity for the site to function they are regularly called out and mocked by the userbase for interrupting the function of the site.

      I wonder if fully automated jannies will be enough in the future. Similar to how e-mail spam gets caught pretty reliable these days, maybe the only thing you will need to filter out are low sophistication jeet spammers

    It would be moderated by me. This applies to all of your "ideal" websites as well, even if you would hate it at first.

    There is literally nothing wrong with "necroposting" and moderators who flip shit over it are just upset that they have to use their power for actual work (checking if the post warrants a bump) instead of fascist wanking.
    By the way: Bumping a solution is acceptable, especially if it is still a viable solution. Just because the last person to implement it was 2 years ago does not mean it was immediately fixed for everyone for all time 2 years ago.
