Is BBS culture dead? Why are websites like this not popular? So simple and yet so cool.
Is there any place to talk about Japanese culture?
Found this and everyone is dead: http://www.1chan.net/overchan/
You can always try to keep it alive or something.
I don't really buy into the fascination of Japanese culture or the whole shtick of "otaku culture", but as long as the conversation were free flowing and users aren't afraid to be challenging I'd be happy with whatever goes on.
Afraid to be challenging?
What do you mean by that?
maaann that page takes me back.
anyways all the weebs and shit moved to facebook groups and reddit.
It's not like it was that alive in the first place
this board was always normal. nothing on the outside, all in the inside. following commercial japanese poseurs instead of free willed pioneers. entire sexuality board taken down because one about pedo theory.
next time you talk about normals getting over the internet think about yourself and things you like
Otaku, pedos, or whatever the fuck "subcultures" you're talking about wasn't the point of the bbs. Those people have long since gone to simpler, or should I say, more appealing means of communicating.
Because now we have reddit and strong need for likes.
I still think that Usenet and IRC are the greatest inventions Internet gave us.
I think a big thing about why I like BBS subculture is how it materialised out of BBS communities, not the other way around. Nowadays social media is about surrounding yourself with those who share a subculture with you, not creating a brand new subculture with a bunch of strangers.
