>>7C788821 (OP) It allows for users to run their own instance no matter how big or small and connect with other instance. Instead of going to 4chan, facebook, twitter, instagram all centralized platforms, you can pull data from multiple different sources. This allows for a "federation" of networks that makes it harder to shut down or control.

>>7C788821 (OP) it's like 4chan but you can virtue signal you can host your own 4chan even tho it always ends up with one instance having 99% of traffic

>>E0527DF6 basically you force the alphabet boys to play whackamole when they want to shutdown something down >>27MM6MLV more like 20% of instances having 80% of traffic

>>E0527DF6 What is an 'instance'? A server? Is the current url referring to one single instance?

>>W8MSDK6Z an instance is a server fchan is only federated with the /b/ board with 0x00000000.xyz/b/ and 0xchan is federated with all of fchans boards consolidated all into its one /b/ board. so if you want to see all of fchans boards in one feed you can just use 0x00000000.xyz/b/catalog and view all of the current FChannel instances and post from there.

>>E0527DF6 this is highly debatable, especially since there's no way for instances to post to one another without pre-authorization basically, you can either play blacklist spam whackamole or you can whitelist and hope that other servers reciprocate

>>7C788821 (OP) this site can talk to other sites that "speak" activitypub, which is the protocol this site uses. this means you can see and reply to threads that users on other sites made.

>>7C788821 (OP) It feels like an exercise in distributed database design.
