This thread is your introduction to /hope/. Make sure to read the rules before posting. Any and all questions you may have will be answered here. In the meantime here is a short FAQ based on questions I received while on 8chan:
1. What is this board?
/hope/ is a very new board created on 8chan in October of 2015. It was born out of a thread on /christian/ in which an anon asked for ideas on how to help all of the miserable and unfortunate people "on imageboards in the whole world." /hope/ was one such idea, and was created that same day.
2. So what do you do here?
As the rules state, /hope/ is for helping your fellow anons. Imageboards contain a large segment of fairly miserable people - people who in times past would receive assistance from their families, friends, neighborhood associations, and churches. In these fallen times, however, we only have each other. Our motto is that whatever can be achieved to help anons over the internet, we will achieve. Of course, we kind of need a userbase to do that. So, our proximate goal is to create a culture of charitable anons.
3. What constitutes "help"?
For now? Advice, kind words, conversation, resource and information-sharing, and so on. We hope to eventually have a large and dedicated userbase that can organize things like building wikis, organizing social events, teaching workshops, and providing material and financial assistance to needy anons - or maybe just a Secret Santa-type deal on the holidays. What we can achieve is really only limited by what anons are willing to do for each other.
