Why would you waste your money like that?

>ban porn

You will lose like 80% of the retard who see the ads in the site.

>change the layout

The layout is completely fine, if anything will allow sound webms, larger files, VP9 webms and mp4 and use a non-google captcha.

>make /x/ actually paranormal

That would be a good change, too much cancer in /x/ nowadays

>lower the age of entry to 16 since no porn

I don't think this is a good idea, the place is a already full of underage but encouraging underage posting will only make it worse.

>delete a bunch of boards (mlp, some anime boards, some video game boards)

What anime and video game boards? I mean there's barely anime boards beside /a/, /m/ and /jp/.

i dont want those porn tards anyway.

for anime there is like anime wallpapers, cute anime, cute anime MALE, mecha, transportation for some reason, egl

No.1994

That actually sounds good except for lowering the age. I would also add banning /tttt/ and issuing bans to anyone who mentions being trans.

Depends on what you want and expect.
>if i were to, I would make a lot of changes.
Well, good board and profitable board are slightly different things.
And keep in mind it is probably barely profitable right now…

>ban porn

It will make it unprofitable at all
>delete a bunch of boards (mlp, some anime boards, some video game boards)
this will make some people seethe, even if board had only 1,5 anons.
>change the layout of the site so it looks more modern
this will make people seethe too. Because modern web design is shit, and current 00's piece of shit would be better than anything new…
>lower the age of entry to 16 since no porn
Well, it is probably 12 right now… But for legal reasons they say you must be 18.

So, in result you will make upset big majority of users, and make it unprofitable. So fail-fail.

Instead, make your own board and gain audience.

This. Though no-audio is a deliberate feature.
Also, google captcha isn't the worst thing that happened, hcaptcha is way way worse.

my train of thought is, when all the creepy porn is gone, advertisers will be a lot more willing to come to 4chan. you can make more money by making it (more or less) work safe. the 16 thing is just so teenagers, the primary audience, can be more open about using it and that will attract attention. also i dont want those creepy my little pony faggots on "my" site anyway.

No.1997

>>1996
I don't know. I don't think advertisers will go to 4chan even if you turn it into… reddit or facebook, just because it is 4chan.
You would need to make at least new brandname and logo.

No. Just make your own imageboard instead.

>ban porn

Again, 4chan clearly isn't what you want.

>delete a bunch of boards (mlp, some anime boards, some video game boards)

I do agree that /mlp/ might as well just be combined into some sort of furry board flat out. It's about time.
I don't agree with deleting any anime boards and really they went overboard with adding so many video game boards earlier this year. But I guess /v/ had it's own problems. I don't really frequent /v/. But they really ruined /vr/, So fix that by making a /v2k/ and manage the other vidya boards from there.

>change the layout of the site so it looks more modern

No, I honestly prefer IBs because they aren't usually "modern".

>make /x/ actually paranormal instead of weird satanic shit

Pretty tough, but then again this place somehow manages alright without too much of it spilling here.

>lower the age of entry to 16 since no porn

Lowering the age will lower the quality. Simple.

>lots of other minor shit i wont get into unless someone actually cares

Umm, ok?

>what do we think lads

I think this whole thread is nothing more than an obvious ruse but I'm bored and passed by it.

No I don't think its a good idea with its current state. If you try to change its current state, you would cause a lot of harm and unintended consequences for many niche users on the platform. Where it was before compared to now has become something completely different. There are many users who go there because other websites have either rejected them or they have found the right environment/ecosystem to be apart of. Think of all the other users who have their vision of what 4chan could be. But everyone has a vision what 4chan should be but it will end up clashing, leading to nothing useful and ultimately a waste of time and bandwidth, and an exodus of users new and old. At that point, you would end up like Tumblr.

If you were to remove any type of content or add more content, you would become a huge target for death threats and slander. More importantly, why change something that has worked for so many years? Its ironic but here we are on this 4chan clone and it has the same functions without google Capcha and 4chan passes.

You mean sucking all the remaining soul out of that place and replacing it with 50 megabytes of useless JavaScript elements?
If I owned 4chan the only change I would make is banning all "mobile" user agents

>No. Just make your own imageboard instead.
And start off with zero userbase? Go look at ganbatte.vip now. You cannot grow an imageboard without already having users or spamming your link on other imageboards until everyone spams so much "niggerniggernigger" that the board collapses on itself.

>Again, 4chan clearly isn't what you want.

4channel.org already bans porn and it's the place for actual discussion. Green leaf 4chan is just an enormous nsfw shitposting hive that was rightfully separated from blue leaf 4chan.

>I do agree that /mlp/ might as well just be combined into some sort of furry board flat out. It's about time.

Ponies ≠ furries. This alone shows how oblivious you are of the culture (or you're pretending). There's a good reason /mlp/ exists, and that is to keep colored horse pics out of sight on other boards. If /mlp/ got removed or fused in with furries, colored horse pics would return to other boards.
If the only reason you'd do this is out of spite/trolling your userbase then go ahead and witness the downfall of 4chan.

>I don't agree with deleting any anime boards and really they went overboard with adding so many video game boards earlier this year. But I guess /v/ had it's own problems. I don't really frequent /v/. But they really ruined /vr/, So fix that by making a /v2k/ and manage the other vidya boards from there.

How is /vr/ supposedly ruined? Because PS2 inclusion?
/v/ has always been the second or third most shitposted board next to /b/ and /tv/. Creating individual video game themed topic boards enables more serious niche related discussion while keeping the main shitposting on /v/. Similiarly you don't fuse the 20 otaku-themed boards into one or it would be a shitshow.

>No, I honestly prefer IBs because they aren't usually "modern".

I'd be inclined to agree if almost every alt-chan wasn't lazily based off infinity or vichan only because they're very easy to setup. I would take a "modern" version of the IB interface any day over the bloated half-breed of classic Futaba/2channel style *BS and fuckin' reddit. Few alt-chans actually do a good job modernizing IBs with their custom-made software, but many just pick the popular choice of setting up tiny+vi with default config and all the bugs.

>Pretty tough, but then again this place somehow manages alright without too much of it spilling here.

It's less about idiots spilling from one board to another and more about sharing spooky shit instead of running/theorizing about some satanic peadophilic schizo cults.

>Lowering the age will lower the quality. Simple.

How naive to think schoolkids aren't already using 4chan? They "officially" have to ban for this but isn't enforced unless someone explicitly states they're underage (which most know by now is retarded to say even ironically).

>Umm, ok?

Would help if these were actually listed.

>I think this whole thread is nothing more than an obvious ruse but I'm bored and passed by it.

It's about a (((hypothetical))). Not even about rusing but just speculation.

No.2130

God bless Hiro if this is the alternative
also funny how nothing was said about the main cancer on the site, /pol/. But yeah kill the origami board and harmless anime boards, those need to go.
the cream of the crop was the "racism is allowed on all boards" change on /qa/

That combined with the adamancy on letting underage posters in and banning porn really just says everything about what kind of newfag underage /pol/ppet you are

No.2133

That's all garbage. The only thing I'd do is to make a furry containment board, let it run for a few months, then permaban every single IP that posted there and delete the board.

if ur gonna buy 4chan good luck, its population is entirely incel assholes who think they understand everything there is to know about the world by blaming it on the jewish, but man, it would be great to see their reactions.
