Stupid question, but are you actively developing stuff for this archive? Would you ever consider implementing: perceptual image hashing and searching with hamming distances (or something similar) since hash search is too specific, any little thing can change the hash searchable OCR'd text of images searchable metadata of webms
Are there any plans to deal with displaying gigantic threads? For example, this /v/ sticky on the summer games fest boards.4channel.org/v/thread/558988672/ completely fails to display on wakarimasen. The /b4k/ seems to work around this by allowing the option of either chunking/paginating the thread ala hackernews or displaying only the 100 most recent posts.
I know it's a pretty serious edge case but it might be worth looking at /a/'s sticky for Miura dying. I can chunk load it on desu but there's no fallback option here, just a memory allocation error page.
