Miscellaneous Textboard Discussion (5)

1 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2020-02-26 04:08 ID:NNhE8Ssg

I have a lot of interest in this topic, but I came way too late to the scene for the full history on text boards. My question is, was there ever an English-language text board that rivaled the fast boards on 2channel? Also, is there a good resource to learn about places like world2ch? If not, perhaps it's a good idea to work on a collaborative resource to preserve this history before it's lost.

Not to say text-only sites are dead though. I made my own the other day (can I link it?), but without a pool to draw users from, I have no idea how these sites can find activity in this day and age. What do you think?


2 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2020-02-26 10:57 ID:OSh7VkRP

>can I link it?

>Also, is there a good resource to learn about places like world2ch? is your best bet.

>was there ever an English-language text board that rivaled the fast boards on 2channel?

Of course not, 2channel was literally the most popular BBS in the world, western forums and all included, despite only being Japanese. is probably the only fast-pased western textboard and it's not even English.

5 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2020-02-28 01:53 ID:NNhE8Ssg

Thanks! The second site is interesting, the layout looks better than either or 5ch now. Also appreciate the first link, the info on 2ch on that site is cool.

For some reason I hadn't seen the history of 4chan page (or history of 2ch) until now, but they look like great sources and reading, so thanks. I'll save the archive zip too.

Addiction to monitoring the web or a general and constant internet usage?

5 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2020-02-07 00:32 ID:I7seYruc

I limited my web intake by creating RSS feeds for my most visited sites. Yes, have folders for every 4-ch board. but only check when it's convenient instead of taking the time to navigate though all the websites every hour. Youtube browsing stays at a minimum because I have all my subscriptions curated and spend less time browsing.

6 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2020-02-19 18:40 ID:7lnFWDB5

Try to be offline as much as possible so it becomes a habit, turn off router physically, get temporarily or for good to a remote location where there is bad internet service, etc. Like with drugs, the only complete cure is to abstain completely - but we live in a society, so that is unrealistic aim.

German imageboard Krautchan dies on 13.03.2018 (18)

1 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2018-04-10 10:02 ID:W3C7gXWy was a German imageboard that was created on the first of may 2007 as successor site to a previous imageboard called Einskanal that was neglected and closed one month before the creation of Krautchan.
It was the first German imageboard with activity high enough to not be considered obscure, many German internet users and imageboarders used to lurk Krautchan either their whole internet time or just partially. /b/ accumulated over 13 million posts in almost 11 years of existence.
It was known for various trolling actions in Germany. It created various memes that spread through the German net and especially influenced German internet slang.
It was known for the creation of the /int/ board initially called /uk/ after the admin created a refugee for Britchan users that lost their site for a time. The /int/ board over time became the fastest English speaking board outside of 4chan almost reaching the 4444444 GET being faster than all the other boards of the site. The board was known for creating memes such as Polandball, Gondola and making reaction images such as sad frog and feels guy popular. 4chan and various other imageboards copied /int/ as either a place for foreigners to post or on-topic board where "international" things can be discussed. /int/ was a popular place where various foreign imageboard users also went either being targeted by raids or seeking refugee from their imageboard's neglect. This is how through Krautchan memes like Kuruminha and Spurdo spread outside their home country's imageboards.
After the loss of the site's domain the admin decided to abandon the project after being tired of hosting the imageboard for almost 11 years.
Now smaller german boards such as Ernstchan and Kohlchan are trying to overtake the crown of main german imageboard.

Which other communities do you visit regularly? (19)

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.

Yes. I enjoy how terrible it is. I find extreme joy in wojakposting - not because I enjoy wojak, but because of just how low quality it is and the reactions it generates. It's literally the worst content imaginable. Just copying and pasting what someone said and slapping a crying wojak to it is the epitome of posting the shittiest shit you can muster with the least possible amount of effort. Any threads that are actually interesting are just icing on the cake. I also sometimes participate in the UNIST threads that happen at night, where they gather players to fight each other. I'm not good, but better than when I started so it's not all bad.
It would be my pleasure for you to stalk me.

Imageboards are dying in the Western World (87)

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!

Admin already banhammered me and I have no clue why. There was a spammer on there yesterday so maybe my IP was confused with his? Honestly I was one of the people that gave this reboot a chance but if this admin's too incompetent to keep a small community like this going then I probably won't touch it ever again

80 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2020-01-09 18:19 ID:oAzs6eXY

81 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2020-01-19 19:20 ID:C9HGXICV

Recent casualties from last month:

  • 4taba
  • Arisuchan
  • Tanasinn

This makes me sad. Even though the situation is bad, it just keeps getting worse.

Maybe I should just finally learn Japanese and lurk their boards. I imagine Japanese boards are also losing users since the younger generation now uses Twitter, but is the situation as bad as in the West? Are old imageboards disappearing, or just very inactive, or do they still have decent health?

82 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2020-01-21 03:20 ID:rM9udqYZ

I'm not sure, but there is a high possibility that the situation is similar to the West, where the major boards are flooded with Twitter style posts, rather than abandoned for social media.
If I'm remembering this correctly, a nijura wiki mentioned the flood of "kids posting contemporary illustrations".
