>417736 Not really, you can just make the cost of living so high that nobody can afford children. It won't be "strictly forbidden" to have children, but childbirth will be low enough to pose a serious demographic issue, so immigration is seen as a necessity. See: Japan, Europe.
USA isn't affected because their people are already dumb enough that they don't care about silly things like whether they can afford children or not.
>417621 I posted a couple of places but not many. We should try again, because last time we put word out the site was extremely buggy. The recent fixes are great. >417624 Put it in appropriate places at appropriate times. This is a bit harder now that 4chan /aco/ and /trash/ exist, but is still useful for a few threads. Maybe in threads that get over-modded on /co/? I don't visit any more but I know there will be some.
One thing to keep in mind with getting people around, is that our board software is still ancient by modern standards. Like, people won't even check the site since it looks like ass on phones. There's no thread watcher nor ajax updater. A lot of this can be excused with the fact that we don't have that many posters for them to be needed, but people today expect content to be delivered to them as instant notifications on the phone, not sit in a thread pressing F5. I put in the RSS feeds for that reason - it's a workaround for notifications, sort of.
And people want a traditional imageboard layout too, not the current centered one. I'm trying to make one that is a combination of both, but it's taking a while since I'm not a designer.
plus4chan will closeenter read-only mode 1/1/2018 is on double-secret probation
No excuses, no speeches, announcement only, final destination.
I have been approached by someone who is not only going to fix the code, but will also help me handle at least some of the day-to-day administration. This is pro bono so I don't have a date for when it will be complete, but at that time we will do a soft-relaunch with the updated software. Until that time, +4 will remain open unless/till we get a nastyspam, and then it will go read-only either for a short time or until improvements are complete.
For when read-only mode kicks in, here are some temporary refugee** locations set up by others:
