Ask Your Questions Here Anonymous Board owner 01/09/2016 (Sat) 09:04:14 [Preview] No. 1
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.

4. Don't other boards exist that do the same thing?

/adv/ provides advice, /kind/ kind words, /fit/ will get you fit and any of the hobbyist boards will share their knowledge; but while there are many caring individuals across all boards, none have as broad a mission as /hope/. In fact, most boards don't have a "mission" at all, other than to discuss a topic. /hope/ is less of a discussion board and more of an organizational base for charitable work among the demographic of imageboard users. The difference is subtle at times, but think of it this way: if most boards are like hobby clubs, /hope/ is more like a volunteer organization. The focus is outward, rather than inward. Even so, we don't aim to help everybody - just imageboard users, and then only those that come to us for help.

5. Nobody replied to me / I didn't get the kind of help I needed.

/hope/ is new, and small. The BO and vols can only do so much and have RL commitments. We just provide a space for anons to come and help each other. It takes two to tango, so if you come here looking for assistance, be ready also to help out others in any way you can. Even creating a light-hearted thread on an unrelated topic can help brighten someone's day, if you're at a loss for what else to do. Funposting for charity is a worthy goal.

6. Is X topic allowed here?

Anything is allowed to be posted or discussed here as long as it's 1) SFW, and 2) conducted in a civil manner. Oh, and don't repeat a thread topic more than twice in the catalog. So, check the catalog first.

Is the prospect of a "Secret Santa" type deal being put forward because more people are down during the Christmas period?

I like this a lot and will stick around as much as possible.

I think a board with a christian mission will actually end up being more "Christian" than a "Christian" board because instead of sitting round having a go at each other we'll actually have a focus. Which is why Jesus sent us out in the first place so we wouldn't just be tearing each other to shreds . Give our energy somewhere useful to go
