 The unofficial board directory
#
EDIT: The Jcink.com Unofficial Board Directory is now live at https://jcink.sourceforge.io

Note: You have to add your own board to the directory, that way we don't populate it with bead or spam boards.

I've thrown together a custom search engine to search all the boards on the jfbs.net, b1.jcink.com and the jcink.net domains. I hope this can help out. You can use the search engine at jcink.neocities.org

This is actually pretty neat.

This is actually really neat. It seems a stretch, but do you collect search phrases/stats on the backend? I think it would be really interesting to see what people are searching for in broad strokes.

This is basically a google site-specific search. Not knocking it at all, just showing how it works.

I don't have a analytics set up yet, but I can set one up.

Ya like John said, this is a CSE engine.

I'm working on the code to look for specific metadata and schema words to make it look better.

This is a rough draft of the main board directory I'm working on. This may replace the search engine I have set up.

How the directory would look like.

How the directory submission looks like.

Hmm, I wonder if having the one section for RPG is going to make it a little lopsided.

I've added subcategorys to fix this.

You can test it out by https://jcink.sourceforge.io

The Jcink.com Unofficial Board Directory is now live! You can try it out by the new domain name at https://jcink.sourceforge.io. After all these years we now have a somewhat proper directory. Please let me know what you think.

Note: You have to add your own board to the directory, that way we don't populate it with dead or spam boards.

I have just submitted one of my boards. My other one is Photography but I'm not sure where to put it as I found 3 suitable categories.

Arts and Literature (Art?)
Health and Recreation (Outdoor Activities?) Or:
Entertainment (Hobbies or other?)

Also just noticed that under Entertainment you added "Other" twice.

Thanks for letting me know that.

Photography can be in Entertainment > Hobbies
