It's just that 99 percent of the time, almost all of the threads on the front page of /anon/ are generals, CYOAs, porn dumps, role-playing, random shitposting and then maybe a couple decent threads about stuff that's actually interesting.
I just think that if we want to garner more traffic to /anon/ then we really need to capitalize on the "ANYTHING GOES" part and stop having the same shit over and over every day.
I personally try to start a lot of threads about lots of different things, I start a thread almost every day, I have one about pick-up lines (in a humorous way), one about video games, one about other shows that people watch besides MLP, one about anime, one about "personal blogging" where I asked people to just share random unimportant stories from their recent lives, one about having a tiny dick, one about upcoming movies, one about music…
Not every thread I start is great, of course I shit/funpost sometimes but that's the beauty of freedom, and my point is I keep trying to start good threads about all kinds of different subjects but they don't get many replies and keep getting knocked back by all the other stuff I mentioned in the beginning of my post.
I think seeing the /anon/ front page the way it is now could be very off-putting to new users, and unfortunately a lot of people don't have the brains to check the catalog and see that there is MORE to this site.
