Chat with the developer about the new "boards" feature of Multich v1.6.0
> Boards vs Tags
Tags are the underlying organizational model of threads, while boards are seeded as a copy of tags.
> Board owners
A board is "owned" on a specific host ( /b/board/password ) , entered once to check and refreshed to confirm . After that, thread moderation, comment moderation, and "message of the day" are moderated via a web interface.

View /boards/ board @ 0chan.vip
as you can see, compared to #boards tag, /boards/ board has sticky and custom "message of the day" style header
Because the /b/board "board owner" can hide comments and threads, and sticky/sage threads without affecting the ./threads/host/thread/ files, it can be considered to be a form of pseudo-moderation.
A board owner only owns a /b/board on a local server with a password, which is stored as a "Secure Tripcode" style of hash in the Multichan database.
I'm kind of surprised this didn't really take off. How can boards be improved?
if you want to look at it again
It's too confusing, I don't really get what it is or why I'd want it
if you like a tag, you can claim it and help moderate it without having to host a multichan server. like here, http://bbs.4x13.net/b/gikopoi/ this board is managed by someone I met on Gikopoi
I ignore the entire tag system and just browse the discussions index. There's not enough activity around here to warrant any kind of filtering, especially the elaborate kind - in fact, what I really want is the maximum level of unfiltered-ness
A bit confusing but a really nice function.
