People need to get the word out, only knew it was back when someone replied to me in a thread on /co/

Ever did sabers in kung fu? You are trying to distract your opponent's eye. If you are successful, they won't see what sliced them.

I agree, but how would you get the word out without it sounding like spamming?

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.

Serious question... why do you need to verify your Discord ID with a phone number in order to post in the p4c server now? Who thought of this?

Because we were getting crazy amounts of spam accounts so we had to increase the security level.

After my account being deleted without explanation (I don't even know if it was joining too many servers and forgetting to check one that got up to bad stuff while I wasn't looking, or just my cat somehow pressing keys in a way that navigated to the account deletion page.) I wasn't sure if I should bother joining again, and this seems like reason enough not to bother. Refusing to give my phone nubmer to social media is why I'm not using Twitter either! Besides, isn't the whole point of using an invite-based system to let people vet each other before giving them an invite?

Besides, it's not like spammers have a whole range of tools being made for them to circumvent automated checks. Why else do you think we don't bother with CAPTCHA here? $0.50 USD for 1000 human-performed CAPTCHA solves last time I checked.

Well, it's not really an automated system if you're manually selective about where you hand out invites, though that makes it similarly inconvenient for actual users to join.

plus4 isn't dead? News to me. To bad the announcement of "plus4 is shutting her doors" probably scared off most everybody.

>>417776
The phone verification thing was only for posting. It's not on any more. If you jump in here I can give you a link into the main (unofficial) plus4 discord.

Why even go to discord when you have this site? What extra functionality does it have?

None. The fear was, this place will go down for good and won't rise from the grave.

This invite is expired, could I have a fresh one?
Mostly I just want a place to put up time sensitive stuff like links to live streams, since there's so few people on the IRC for that.

People need to get the word out again about the revamp.

See if more old regulars will crawl out of the woodwork.
