Hey there, friends
Due to recent events, more specifically the all-out attacks on anonymous message boards by various actors in the US, some folk back at our bunkers created a way to connect imageboards to each other.
We call it "webring", though it technically is a federated network of imageboards like those used in the 90's and early 2000's.
Basically, the idea behind it is simple: download the plugin at https://gitlab.com/Tenicu/infinityaddon-webring
(depending on your underlying system), install it and you'll immediately be able to access the connected imageboards, as well as to advertise your own to all of them.
>Why would I want this?
- It allows you to advertise your boards to an ANONYMOUS COMMUNITY, meaning that you can have other like-minded people join it instead of having to go to shitty places like reddit or twitter, nor you'd have to go around imageboard per imageboard asking people to come to you;
- It keeps IB users up to date on your IB's status (when it's down, when a new board comes around, when a board becomes popular etc.) - one big reason why we accepted this system is to avoid duplicate boards for niche interests (i.e. Nation-specific boards) while allowing broader interests like videogames or anime to be discussed on multiple sites, with different userbases and moderation teams;
- It prevents situations where your IB going down would mean all the communities you allowed on your website would go scattered to the wind, likewise it allows users from other IBs to move to yours without needing word of mouth;
- Because anonymous communities everywhere are being attacked on multiple fronts and it's always best to have someone back you up, no matter the problem.
>What do we gain from having you?
Like I said, this project relies heavily on people pitching in and allowing multiple interests being discussed on multiple sites. Having your boards listed would allow other IBs to redirect people who want to talk about some topic YOU're interested in towards YOUR IB instead of having to create an ad-hoc board that would see five posts tops and be dead a week later.
In addition to that, the webring allows you to pick and choose which Imageboards you want to redirect to, so if for example one of them looks like a bunch of retards to you, you can always delist them from your version of the webring and they will not appear in your advertisement list.
