Reintroducing the 4chan Blog and Blotter
Long-time users will remember the late 4chan DevBlog and Blotter, which were removed almost five years ago due to infrequent use. We had used them to share updates with the community that didn’t require lengthy news posts.
Today I’m pleased to reintroduce both. As someone who hates writing and prefers to publish news posts only when absolutely necessary, I welcome their return. We’ll continue to use the global message (big red text at the top of boards) to communicate important notices, but will use the blog and blotter to share a running tally of smaller updates.
You may not realize it, but we’re constantly working behind the scenes to improve the site—be it feature additions, code tweaks, or improving moderation. It’s our hope to give the community more visibility into those improvements via a changelog of sorts.
