A solution I thought of, to allow you to use the site without having to download every single post that had been created and to prevent someone from accidentally downloading CP that some spammer just posted
, is to start in text only mode with just the thumbmail for the OP in the catalogue. Then when you enter a thread, you have the option to read the thread with no pictures, and either manually open them for each user that has posted one, or have a button/option to automatically download all the pictures in the thread, or at the very least just the thumbmails. Yes, this goes a bit against the concept of P2P, but it would make things faster and more usable, and if enough users are on the site, even if some of them don't download every single post, there will still be at least 2 users with a copy of each post.
Another problem with the site, was that you were never sure if people saw your posts. I remember there was a thread, after an update, in which everybody would post stuff like "can you see me", and wait for a reply to confirm that they had the latest update installed. Furthermore the whole site combined with Tor had memory leaks, as RAM usage kept increasing the more I had it opened, forcing me to close it and reopen it.
