>I'm what you call "unangstfag" and also who 'designed' the html and all the information in it,
Well, like I said, it's an improvement over the previous version. It looks nice. Good job.
>since no one here is interested in contribute but, instead, talk shit.
Sometimes talking shit _is_ contributing. It is when I do it, anyway; my shit talking is (almost) never pointless.
Nonetheless, as a gesture of goodwill, I will read over the list again and attempt to make a more traditional contribution to the list.
>why does it have to be a website?
I can't speak for the guy who started it or for Unangstfag, but I would suggest the following:
1. The project is in an early stage. It makes sense to have a central place that anons can check and contribute to instead of a pastebin to disseminate all over the imageboard world which will be outdated almost instantly. Unless you mean putting the official list on a pastebin, in which case how is that any different from a static webpage, in essence?
2. The list contains services and software which at some point might become untrustworthy, outdated, or deprecated. Again, if there is a central location to check and update, there's less of a concern about lots of stale information being stored as images or links to old pastebins on various anons harddrives.
Of course, there's nothing stopping an anon from taking the website and dumping it into a pastebin or making an image from it, but I think it's premature at this point. It would be best to wait until the list is more complete and relatively stable, then to version and license it so it can be distributed/hosted without concern and checked at a glance to see if the list that someone has is the most recent.
>you can self host a pastebin clone using a variety of software.
That's just a complicated way to host a website. You realize an html page is just a text file that contains markup tags, right? You're suggesting that instead of hosting the list as an html page, it should be hosted as a text file that's displayed in an html page that's generated by pastebin software? That seems like a complicated way to do a simple thing.
>you can easily spread images that contain stenographically embedded lists or files
The list is not a secret. Few people would find it unless they were told, and if you're going to tell them, why embed it in the first place?
