I quit approving boards because I am irritated by the high amount of them that are passed to me.
Out of the twenty or so links I got, only one was a website, and it was a site hosted by Bandai Namco (the guy was just asking to approve of posting it). BOARDS ARE NOT WEBSITES. I practically surf the net for a living (it would net me a nice sum if it were true), so I die a little on the inside each time some hyperlink leads me to a board or blog I have to register for to view it, or worse, a board whose registration is separate from the main content of the site, but those are far and few between. Every time else, however, it's just boards, boards, and more boards. It's a dot com bubble burst waiting to happen.
Boards are not passable as standalone websites. They are not maintained and perpetuated solely (or primarily) by an author. If you want me to approve something, do have a front page. Do not have the forums become the primary source of content. Do have a core set of authors doling out content. Have it be a website, not another board with a purpose clearly fulfilled by other established boards. Establish, because the world needs originality and deviance to continue on.
