Well. I have a confession to make. This thing, the ibdb, was made with only one thing in mind - promote my imageboard. Just spamming URL on every board I can find will not work. (zchan for example… which is dead now), so I came up with that abomination.As a bonus, I'd get an imageboard list with description of every board, and maybe find couple interesting for me boards.
But it failed. But I digress.
There is one really obvious problem with imageboard being in any sorts of database. Spam. I've actually experienced it myself, because my board was in one of those lists: ( https://github.com/ccd0/imageboards.json
etc)… I actually used myself those lists to spam.
If you thing about it, those lists are made to be used with spambots, because they are JSON, and you can easily write a bot, on simply copy URL, which facilitates spamming.
So yeah. It is pretty bad Dreamchan is included in both lists, so it is too late well, there are ways to get board removed from that list, mainly changing domain name, which is uneconomical, because dreamchan unlike eagleboard doesn't use meme free domains. Or making some sort of registration (this worked with one of my domains)
… Also, if I ever gonna make similar list of imageboards again, I'd display URLs as images (like in captcha) so it is not easy to just go and spam innocent people. Should I open imageboard database again?
P.S. I'm hanging out here for, idk, 3 months maybe, and I still don't quite get what this board is about… And I got my posts deleted couple times, so I really want to know what am I doing wrong, because I don't want cause inconveniences.
