Alright, so this has gotten really old. The staff at GETchan (Now USSC) offered to merge us with them as /luna/ a while ago, but after a poll, we declined. At least With the lack of realistic traffic here
and that we've been getting more spambot posts than regular posts, Spike and I have seriously considered taking up that offer.
Given all this, what do you think? Do you think we should accept the offer and become ussc.su/lunachan/?
Here's the lowdown of how Spike and I see it.
Stay as we are:
+ Keep our sovereignty and identity
- Community remains stagnant, both slow and unpopulated
- The ratio of spam posts to legitimate posts is much higher than most other imageboards
Merging with USSC:
+ Lunachan users accepted by the already existing community
+ As a few other imageboards have already merged, we would keep some of our identity
+ Easier to manage by the staff, leaving spam to be dealt with by the site-wide admins.
+ Since with the exception of /leftypol/, it's all on one central imageboard, the likelyhood of posters from other boards posting here is higher
- Lose our sovereignty
Turning Lunachan into a forum:
+ Easier to block spam posts
+ Most forums tend to be relatively slow
- Most forums still have more speed than us
- Users must create accounts in order to post, requiring more barriers for people just passing by
