4chan Inline Extension + Catalog Feedback Thread
459 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: Screen Shot 2013-02-05 at 22.10.31.png]
Last Fall we introduced an inline extension and native catalog.
The extension is 4 months old and reaches all of 4chan's ~24 million monthly visitors, and the catalog is 2 months old and has already served more than 1.5 million unique visitors.
Both have come a long way since their introduction thanks to desuwa, who has generously donated his time to these projects.
We'd like to know what you all think is missing from them, and what we can do to make them better.
Both desuwa and I will be monitoring this thread for feature suggestions, bugs, etc.

Stormfront & 4chan (Specifically /pol/)

OK stormfags, many of us have seen the evidence and many have seen your weak rebuttals. But the facts still stand; stormfront has a web spam/propaganda team. stormfront has and currently is still spamming on /pol/.
A. Gallery full of screenshots supporting the following:
B. "We should recognize our power and start infiltrating these groups. Do a google search for Anonymous and begin reading about them. Begin making connections. Begin infiltrating them. We could, over time, take them over by our sheer numbers. Or we can find out where they are and retaliate for their attacks against us, or both." -http://www.stormfront.org/forum/t863802/#post9953315
C. StormFront has a sub-community called SwarmFront (http://www.stormfront.org/forum/f214/), which is basically a neo-nazi version of the JIDF, except much, much more active with significantly more members.
Their sole purpose is to disseminate neo-nazi and white-nationalist propaganda on as many websites as possible, including 4chan (http://www.stormfront.org/forum/t854096/). They call this spamming drive 'BUGS' and call their asinine talking points 'Mantras'. They routinely pound the shit out of discussion boards everywhere.
They even use helper applications like BUGS Buddy (e.g. 1. http://www.stormfront.org/forum/t878206/ 2. http://www.stormfront.org/forum/t856144/ 3. http://www.whitakeronline.org/blog/forum/bugs-swarm/) to make sharing their retardation with others, that much easier.
They also have guidelines, plus IRL and online training for helping them to spread their ridiculous agit-prop (e.g. 1. http://www.stormfront.org/forum/t860368/ 2. http://www.stormfront.org/forum/t872878/ 3. http://www.whitakeronline.org/blog/).
D. Read the threads in these 2000+ results (Many of them specifically mention establishing a presence on /pol/ [or in older threads, /new/]): https://www.google.com/search?ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=4chan%20site:www.stormfront.org&safe=off&num=18&filter=0&pws=0&as_qdr=all
VC estimates 4chan worth $1.2 billion

So /q/ friends, I've been involved in many VC deals in the past and I've estimated the worth of 4chan at $1.2 billion dollars. Let me tell you why.
First off how much revenue per year? From https://www.4chan.org/advertise 550,000,000 impressions a month at $1 CPM, we have $550,000 a month in revenue which is $6,600,000 a year. Of the 22,000,000 unique visitors a month, about 2% of those will convert to paying users and buy a one-year pass at $20, bringing in another $8,800,000 a year. This totals $15.4 million a year. Given the business model similar to Craigslist http://37signals.com/svn/posts/2283-ranking-tech-companies-by-revenue-per-employee I'd estimate 5 paid employees, mostly mods to handle CP, at $150,000 each plus hosting, travel, business expenses give about $1m a year in total expenses. This means about $14m a year in profit before taxes.
How much cash does moot have now? $6m a year in solid ad revenue profit since say 2005 to 2012 is $48m now, after high NYC taxes around $30 million is left.
How much is moot worth? Assuming he owns 100% of 4chan, if he took it IPO at a facebook 85 P/E ratio, it would be worth around $1.2 billion dollars. Could be substantially less than that, say between $300m - $600m given the market conditions, but I'd put $150m as an absolute floor.
Given this, I'm not sure why moot continues imply he's a pauper running the site on shoestrings. At a bare minimum he is making millions a year in cash profit from 4chan. I mean I have acquaintances (even a Cohen) who are public with the millions they are making a year off their small businesses, so moot's reticence is a bit odd. But to each his own. He is, after all, according to my calculations, a billionaire.

Make a dedicated trap board please

Hello moot, I was browsing /gif/ trying to get a chubby when I saw a thread sharing similar sentiments to what I've been harboring for some time: the level of trap threads on /gif/ is becoming out of control. Apparently other adult boards are also experiencing the same issues as well (although I can't verify that being the lazy sack of shit I am).
Anyways; personally, nothing pisses me off like seeing a hot chick only to discover (s)he has a 2 inch quasi-functional penis. So we believe there should be a dedicated trap board in a similar sense how /vp/ was made for the pokemon circlejerks on /v/, /d/ was made to get the hardcore shit on /h/, /mlp/ was made to get the ponies off of a shitload of boards (/b/ in particular), etc..
>tl;dr we'd like a dedicated shemale/trap/tranny/dickgirl board please.
autobanning links and spam filter stifles board content
36 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: Mods demonstrate how the autoban sy(...).jpg]
I just want to say that by trying to crack down on advertising by handing out autobans conversation is being stifled. I've written up a few posts that have tripped the "we think your post is spam" filter and after picking over my message, just given up.
I understand you don't want people to use the site to advertise their shit, I really do, but this isn't the correct way to go about it. I've gotten bans for linking to a steam greenlight page on /vg/ for advertising, for a game that was already greenlit and didn't have a steam page yet. How does that work out? It was completely on topic.
Further I don't belive it should be up to the mods to police links to streams. I know this has been a policy in place for years and yeah it might be annoying some faggot tries to get views for his starcraft twitch stream or whatever for views, but it stops people who generally just want to stream related content with other people from 4chan. It is board related and streaming is becoming a larger and larger part of the internet.
