I think it will disappear eventually sometime this month. I imagine the speed will slowly taper off anyway, we're already at over an hour for a thread to fall off the first page.
I don't care where it goes from here, posting with you badass /mo/thers has been the most fun I've had here in a while.
Except for >>>/outsoc/. It's an abomination.
The server load thing was a joke. If 4chan's software is anything like Wakaba, combining boards is likely to be worse for performance, because you get more posters and hence more page writes per board. Meanwhile, splitting boards is good because you can host them separately.
I feel you, anon. I was kind of sad when I noticed /z/ was gone.
XKCD is mostly shit, but it got this thing right.
