>could you create a guide to making an imageboard for retards?
I'll try but I can't promise anything.
It's likely that Robi will release something earlier than me.
>I don't have to cross post as much.
To be honest the whole point of making this website is so that only a selected few boards are there and everything else has to be reached through the webring. Basically, crossposting between multiple sites is encouraged.
As for the structure itself, currently the idea is to set up (other than a /meta/-like board) /ita/, /ara/ and /com/, the latter being a "catch-all" place for those communities that are big enough to have actual discussions going on, but are too small to fill up a whole board.
Usually these communities live in a single thread that gets recreated when it reaches the bump limit; so even if they have their own board it's usually just a collection of old threads with only one active.
Other places can be discussed once the site is up, but in general only a small number of boards will be available (around 5, unless there's an emergency and a bunker has to be made.)
