Possible influx of users?

With a small possibility of /f/ being deleted, is this place ready for an influx of users from /f/?

Wouldn't want a bad first impression if this become the new /f/.

Thank you for thinking about 4chan.
We had tried to keep 4chan as is.
But I failed. I am sincerely sorry.

Some notice there are no more middle ads and bottom ads on 4chan.
Ads don't work well. So we reduced advertisement servers cost.
4chan can't afford infrastructure costs, network fee, servers cost, CDN and etc, now.

4chan have three options.
-Halve the traffic cost
limit uploading image sizes
use slower servers.
close some boards

-Much more ads
pop-up / pop under ads
malicious ads

-More 4chan pass users
more features

I think so, otherwise I'll have to upgrade stuff. CloudFlare is used for flashes here on .org and there's probably already a bunch of folks from /f/ popping in here frequently, even if they don't post much. So the number of connections per hour probably won't skyrocket. But I think I'd have to finally rewrite the post code, so comments show up faster.

I believe /f/ isn't going anywhere anytime soon though so don't worry too much. Removing that board from 4chan wouldn't really save any resources. Honestly I find this whole thing a bit odd, especially with services like CloudFlare around that saves a ton of bandwidth.

4chan has enough frequent users that it should be able to survive on donations, just drop the current "4chan Pass" purchase system and award captcha-less posting to donors instead. Just don't implement more rewards that ruin what 4chan is all about - Anonymous posts without accounts where every single post has the same value.

I certainly hope not. Just asking in case.

I thought that the since4pass was a little strange, I guess Hiro wanted some more incentive for buyers and ended up making a feature where he wouldn't realize the consequences.

Similar to him messing with the 404 page.

Speaking of that I wonder if anyone has bothered archiving those contest pages such as
