1. Follow ALL global rules.

2. Don't Be a Faggot. That means no obnoxious shitposting, spamming, or trying to fuck up a thread just because you got BTFO. If you see a terrible thread: report, hide, and carry on.

3. Keep image dumps contained. There's no need to clutter the board.

4. Spoiler NSFW images.

5. If you have any general gameplay questions, check out the thread for it here >>960

If anyone has any ideas for improving the board, please let me know. I'll usually be around in this thread in case anyone wants to get a hold of me.

Here's a suggestion: Four stickies is too much, especially for a small board. Condense everything down. You can probably combine useful links, rules, and suggestions all into a single post.



Thanks for the advice. Anything else I should work on? Still pretty new to running a board. I want to gst it to a decent enough shape before I try to get more people.



Nothing important or urgent. But custom flags are always fun, as are more banners. When you do try to go for more people, the Attention Hungry Games seem to work ok. I found a couple fun small boards that way.

>only 3 or so threads with recent posts

holy shit azur lane really killed kancolle



Well the new board owner hasn't advertised the board too much yet and only just / is still in the process of renovating it.



I think the board is more or less good to go in terms of renovation. Might add or change things later on.

Main issue is advertising. I dropped knowledge of /kancolle/ in a /monster/ and /animu/ thread, as well as sign up for the attention hungry games whenever I can. I don't want to come off as a shill or spammer. Any good tips for advertising this board?


Invidious embed. Click thumbnail to play.


Give people a reason to browse this board. Post in-game screenshots/make greentext stories about your experiences in the gameplay thread. Dump doujins. Since you're good at ship history, post entries about certain ships (but don't copy and paste from wikipedia). If you can, discuss kancolle fangames/mods.

Focus on keeping the board alive rather than trying to attract posters. If someone finds something interesting, then they'll reply and add onto the discussion. I know this doesn't answer your question about advertising, but keep doing the Attention-Hungry Games. Eventually you'll win and you'll get a flood of lurkers and shitposters. If this place is active enough by then, some dedicated people might feel like staying.

>make greentext stories about your experiences

This. Battle reports are the bread and butter of any game that lacks a story. They make for some very entertaining threads for strategy games and rogue-likes and it should apply to KanColle too. If you have any attachment to your ships you probably have something of an internal story running through your mind when you play. The rest of this Admiral's post is great advice too OP, you should listen to it.

Holy shit this place isn't completely dead for once.



A little bit at a time. Hopefully we can get a nice level of activity soon.



Definitely would keep those in mind.

But doesn't look like he's working on Logbook any more(?).

Poi comes in English, Chinese, and Japanese, with multi-OS support: https://poi.io/

KC3 Kai is also still around as an extension for Chrome.
