seems cumbersome to me. BUT it seems everyone reccomends it nowadays, many newer imageboards are using this one
>vichan/infinitychan/openib are all forks of tinyboard. they are all open source
to note, the original tinyboard was inspired by 4chan, now running on closed source.
the mystersious 4chan software was apparently cobbled together, today known as Yotsuba (apparently it was leaked lol but it's closed source, is php)
being inspired by 2chan over 15 years ago, a completely japanese website. the original software is out there actually
blah blah blah it doesn't really matter
what DOES matter, is that anyone can make their own imageboard!
register a domain, set up a server with like a webhost, and TAKE CONTROL
