Which factor is the most important to a community? Quality, member satisfaction, or homogeneity?
>>
Homosexuality.

This seems pretty important too.

>>1013190
Thankfully, there is no community with greater homosexuality than 4chan.
>>
>>1013140
Member satisfaction. Definitely.
>>
>>1013193
Wait a minute, is member satisfaction a double entendre?
>>
Are you asking about the online kind? I think it's in-group partisanship, that's not something you'll develop immediately though. If I had to choose one of those I would pick quality. Few rules but hard enforcement of them seems good.
Member satisfaction seems pointless since you can't satisfy everyone, and many people are idiots.

[[Homosexuality]] itself may be tied to member satisfaction.
>>1013193
How to solve the problem of the conflict between the member satisfaction of different users?
>>1013196
What are your interpretations?

>Few rules but hard enforcement of them seems good.
It would be contributing if you specify these rules.
>>
>>1013200
I want to satisfy Akari's member!
>>
>>1013200
People dislike feeling too restricted so having a small number of rules is good as it allows maximum unrestrained discussion of any subject. I don't think it needs to be said, but having no limits at all is bad since you need a standard for communication, otherwise the level of discourse will fall down the shitter.

Understandable. That is partly why I post on this board.
Talking about ''maximum unrestrained discussion of any subject'', would you consider ''board culture'' an obstacle to such goal?
>>
>>1013218
I don't think it would be strange if, for example, someone who knows how a functional board looks like would answer 'yes' to that question if they were to observe a popular board such as /tv/. Topics that are tangentially related to the subject assigned to a board comes with the territory of unrestraint, so the boundary between what's allowed and not becomes unclear. I think that you would have to keep tabs on emerging practices and be ready to smother them if they develop branches of topics that are more superficially related than the ones before them. It's an obstacle if it becomes the source of trouble.

My mother found a pretty cool photo editing website today. I think I might be able to make some nice pictures with it.

Become informed!

Quality is the most important.

What do you think of my picture though? I'm pretty proud of it, I think the colors are very relaxing and elegant.
>>
>>1014854
It is really good and would be better if you apply a colour filter after the final step.

Because being around a group of people who genuinely care about what their gathering is centered around is better for you if you care about it on any meaningful level.

Activity.

You can have a userbase of disgruntled homosexuals who all despise each other to the point of intentionally making awful posts in hopes of scaring off the other disgruntled homosexuals. They will continue to come back for years to come just because the community is active and not because of any quality constraints.

See: Most of 4chan.

>>1014963
The community stays active because it has loyal autistes.

>>1013460
To be more specific, boards like /r9k/, [s4s] or /trash/. What is the case then?

QUALITY.

Without question. I don't care how fucking happy shitposting makes people it should be abolished in all its forms.
>>
>>1022439
quality is subjective
>>
>>1023269
Not if it is based on a standard.
>>
Shitposting is easily the most important feature of any healthy community.
>>
>>1023315
whose standard?
>>
>>1023323
Quality can be decided by objective standards, that doesn't mean the criteria for the standard wasn't decided by subjective means.

but then again feel free to experiment

None of those are really what I'd call crucial elements to a successful online community. In my mind, what you need is:
Hands-off moderation
Low barrier to entry/ease of access
Popular discussion topics

These are what I see as the magic ingredients that made 4chan a success. Then you supplement these by providing users a method for sharing content with each other on the site (rather than just linking to other sites) and you have the makings of a creative environment that actually generates its own content.
>>
>>1024899
Well, by popularity it is.

You can't deny facebook and twitter is successful in their own ways
>>
>>1032443
Neither of those sites are known for the community they form. Only famous people matter on reddit twitter and facebook, but on the chans your contributions represent your website
>>
>>1032477
What if reddit becomes anonymous?
