>Making the website harder to find
Lol the website is already hard enough to find on search engines. Why make it more niche? Its not going to dissuade that crowd from coming here if that's what your hoping for. If there's anyone posting illegal content, its likely somebody else doing that with the intention of taking 8chan.moe down.
>just delete/ban any 3D child images whether they’re clothed or not, including rotoscoped CP
It already is. I don't see any pics of fully clothed kids or CP posted around here.
>CP gets posted to all image boards
This. Even 4chan had this problem in the past and they still do although its rare and minimized at the expense of eliminating anonymity, convenience, and freedom of speech.
Acid/Codex's approach to the free speech issue is probably the best I've seen on imageboards in a long time. As long as you don't post CP, you get to pretty much do whatever you want on here. 4chan has numerous restrictions in place, including prohibiting lolicon outside of /b/, restrictions in political speech, copyright restrictions, can only post one image per post, captcha lock after posting a couple of times, VPNs/Tor/Proxies are banned, and globals/mods ban whoever they don't like.
At least on here, you can create your own board, and easily fullfill a niche. You can't do that on 4chan cause its running on an outdated engine. 4chan is heavily sanitized, the only thing that sustains it is traffic powered by its incumbency, its easy to find on search engines and recognition(being one of the "first" imageboards known in the West).
8moe can easily compete with 4chan but its hard to find on the search engine. Searching 8chan on Google, Duckduckgo, Yandex, SearX, Qwant, or Startpage does not show any site returns on 8chan.moe at all. Nonetheless, this site is managing to grow despite not being easy to find on search engines but it were easy to find like the original 8chan it would grow fast.
Old 8chan had a lot of problems that's why this version is better. The only thing this site needs is an active /pol/, /tv/ and /a/ to add more variety around here. A dedicated philosophy, history, or hentai game board would be nice.
