Which other communities do you visit regularly? (6)

1 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2019-12-06 15:37 ID:pgvaPUfL

I'm curious how other people spend their time on the web. I only really use anonymous boards and occasionally skype for an old group of friends, so I'm pretty out of touch with anything except imageboards. What about you? Even if it's on a service that people consider distasteful like Reddit or Discord, I'd really like to know where people go nowadays.

2 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2019-12-06 16:41 ID:kfYx2ean

I enjoy lurking xltronic from time to time. I really like the simple y2k layout of the site, plus the community isn't too nerve jarring. Considered registering to it a while ago but couldn't because their captcha's fucked so eh.

3 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2019-12-06 16:45 ID:kKl13Tqu

Am redditfag (sad I know), but I really only use it because I haven't found a good site to replace it yet (ideas welcome). I do use this board, however, when I have access to a computer. I have a Discord account, but I rarely use it because the community is pretty toxic (so is Reddit but I try not to go to the comments much, where the toxicity resonates)

I have been working on creating my own textboard employing some modern ideas, but it probably won't go anywhere.

Other than that (and an occasional check on 4chan), I pretty much stay off the web. Though, if anyone has any recommendations for sites that might cure my boredom I will surely check it out.

4 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2019-12-10 05:32 ID:Bl/+YLuE

I've been posting more on 4chan, as opposed to mostly lurking. I also spend some time on a few discords, some better in quality than others.

Imageboards are dying in the Western World (72)

1 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2017-10-01 18:26 ID:P9OB6Jyx

What kind of bizarro world do we live in where everyday person not only is terrified of a site that advocates open source ideals and pushes their user base towards creative commons but has learned from the popular media to actively resent it? What has happened to us that people are flocking towards grotesque, selfish corporations whose only interest is to satisfy their shareholders as though they were some warm, fuzzy paternal figure? What is wrong with our culture that a company like Apple--the same company that lobbies against right to repair laws, has a worker death toll in the thousands, and forces their users to throw %95 of their old merchandise in to landfills rather than recycling just to stifle third party repair practices--is lecturing us on how we should feel about gay marriage? And we're actually listening to them!

63 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2019-12-02 17:26 ID:KEDo+mky


>it's also unlikely that things will get any worse than they are now.

I think it's very likely, actually. With how much weight the corporate giants can throw around, I would not be surprised in the slightest if they started saying "Anyone who specifically avoids using our website(s) must have something to hide!" and have people eat it up. Like 8chan, the entire site was not dedicated to whatever got them in the news. They had vidya, anime, and a whole slew of other harmless boards. But if you publicly admitted to browsing 8chan at all, you were suddenly a terrorist. Then the reverse starts happening with "Oh, why are you not using Facebook2.0, hm? Are you some sort of terrorist, trying to go off the beaten path?"

Also this is my first reply in this thread.

64 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2019-12-03 13:17 ID:TX6DFStK

Not only that, but 8chan will probably never be able to come back. It almost re-launched as 8kun last month, and was immediately taken down by activists. I'm 99% sure /pol/ was controlled opposition though, based on how the moderators acted. It outlived its usefulness and was sacrificed to create a precedent for permanently taking down "hate" sites.

65 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2019-12-03 14:35 ID:Heaven

66 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2019-12-03 17:20 ID:TX6DFStK

When did it come back? I checked only a few days ago and it seemed to still be gone. Wouldn't be surprised if it dies again soon, there's a lot of people who really want it gone.

For context;

A Personal Appeal from Founder halcy (that you've probably known was coming at this point)

*so anyways, here's the thing. I've created this website (together with meltingwax, who pays for hosting) when wikichan went down, and for a while, I also cared about it and properly maintained it, but as is obvious to pretty much anyone looking at recent changes, I don't really anymore. All I still do care about is the pages about DQN music and parts of the the kopipe and aa archives (and even for those, the reason they're still in a shape of any kind is other people who maintain them, not me). I've also never really cared for the whole ironic racism thing, and I'm at this point older and past even really tolerating it.
I think at this point, the right thing for me to do would be to hand this website over to somebody else who DOES care in some way. I don't know what shape that would take (just public facing wiki export + the modifications / setup info for our wikipedia install? db export instead? just hand someone the password [meltingwax would obviously have to agree to this first]? domain name eventually?) or have any idea to whom and with what timeline. If you think the person maintaining this website could be you, please let me know (email, twitter, discord, line, editing userpage, whatever, you can figure it out). As you can see, you can get away with really only very little work, and at least the domain isn't super expensive (it's like 20 bucks a year).

I like reddit a lot. At least, I use it nowadays a LOT more than I access the *chan-verse, et al.

I have enough unique little places to go to with peculiar communities, but nowadays I think that's gradually falling out of fashion. While I can't say I honestly couldn't care less, it's not as big of a deal to me as probably some who frequent these types of places.

I recall someone here saying this place would blow up in ten years time. It's be cool if that came true.

I guess 4-ch isn't that popular, really. But relative to other textboards, this one is probably one of the more active ones.

149 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2015-08-03 00:34 ID:o8JzSA6/

I like the concept of anonymity, discussion is more focused on content rather than ego. And textboards seems to be more serious/discussion focused compared to many popular imageboards. I've always wanted to read 2channels posts since I'm kind of fascinated by the east asian bbs culture. But since I can't read moonrunes, I'm here instead.

4-ch falls rare sweet spot of activity that very few sites do. It's busy enough that you can post something and are guaranteed a response in at most a week, but at the same time it's quiet enough that it's able to maintain a laid-back atmosphere where discussions rarely devolve into arguments

What I like about the asian web is that it's a lot nicer than the western one. Things are way less aggressive and people are way less confrontational about their opinions

I found 4-ch a few years ago as a teen. I felt like I had "graduated" from 4chan, so I looked for other chans to post on that I thought were "better quality". I browsed a handful of boards (like 20-30 lol) pretty much every day for a year. Over the years I cut it down to 5, then 3, then 2, then none at all. I haven't posted regularly anywhere in like three years. These days I visit some boards every few months when I feel really bored, like I'm doing right now.

Do anonymous textboards have Buddha nature? (8)

1 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2019-07-30 17:26 ID:Rmt5MjF3

So I was trying to explain to a namefag on some 8ch board why namefagging is bad and was inspired to find this passage off a blog:

> When the Buddha confronted the question of identity on the night of his enlightenment, he came to the radical discovery that we do not exist as separate beings. He saw into the human tendency to identify with a limited sense of existence. Then he discovered that this belief in an individual small self is a root illusion. It causes suffering and removes us from the freedom and mystery of life. He described this as interdependent arising, the cyclical process of consciousness creating identity by entering form, responding to contact of the senses, then attaching to certain forms, feelings, desires, images, and actions to create a sense of self.
> In teaching, the Buddha never spoke of humans as persons existing in some fixed or static way. Instead, he described us as a collection of five changing processes: the processes of the physical body, of feelings, of perceptions, of responses, and of the flow of consciousness that experiences them all. Our sense of self arises whenever we grasp at or identify with these patterns. The process of identification, of selecting patterns to call “I,” “me,” “myself,” is subtle and usually hidden from our awareness. We can identify with our body, feelings, or thoughts; we can identify with images, patterns, roles, and archetypes.
