I don't care if I don't have SSL ready or have the fempire fully backed up. I'm going to try to put the new site up this weekend if I don't run into any hurdles by hoppetin meta

If you have a smallish amount of boards, then new users could also be made to subscribe to all of them by default by admins so that people won't be left out of things, but can unsubscribe if they so wish to. If the amount of boards is practically unlimited, this doesn't work, but we don't have the user base to warrant them and if we feel the need, we can open that later.

I don't know how the Raddit software does it, but I feel like this could be possible.

Lack of SSL at start is no big deal as we aren't that kind of a target and it's not any worse than what we already got and it's a thing we can make later.

I think the rebranding is good, even if jstpst.net isn't the final one.

Looking forward though, I must wonder about the board policy. Back in the day a lot of small message boards suffered from being cluttered with many, many low-to-zero activity boards that were created as premature specialization. Depending on the how the UI and layout and functionality of the site is, it might be a good idea to start with admin blessed set of boards so that they will be

  1. comprehensive, if you have something to post you'll have a place for it
  2. user culture starts in a good direction
  3. There will be no still born boards or excessively specialized ones
  4. Later when board creation is opened, people already have some idea for where there is room for improvement and secondly there is probably excitement given that there is new freedom in using the site.

What would those boards be? Probably most the same as we have with some consolidations, like I don't see much point in having boards for anime, cartoons and animation like we do. One thing I'd like to see would be some sort of general board - /r/fempire seems somewhat highbrow to me and /r/just_post isn't a good fit for everything.

TL;DR: Google has gotten to the stage where it combines street view imagery and satellite imagery so that it creates data out of the data derived from them, namely buildings and places of interests and maps out Areas of Interest automatically that way.

The "article" is mostly pictures but still has a shit ton of things so if you're tired don't read open it.

I'm just loving that a piece called "Toy World" has such a satisfying climax.

Nelward has pretty good stuff, a while back /u/oakreef as what channels I was following in the sea of garbage known as YouTube. Well this is one of them lolz.

I really only got it when I got to this part:

(The difficulty in resolving closely integrated black and white images on non-color television receivers was one of the primary reasons NFL games were not regularly televised until the mid-1960s, when sales of color TV sets started to outstrip those of black-and-white models. When black-and-white television predominated in the nation’s living rooms, football games were too often disrupted when players ran into the referees, whose black-and-white striped uniform tops made them nearly invisible to onlookers. Likewise, Johnny Cash’s famous televised live concert performance at California’s Folsom Prison in January 1968 proved disastrous when several inmates wearing the traditional black and white prisoner’s garb slipped unnoticed past guards, who had been provided only black and white monitors with which to view the proceedings.)

This idea of stripes being invisible on black-and-white TV is somehow hilarious to me, I was thinking of some elaborate paint job.
