Imageboards are dying in the Western World (83)

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!

>>73 I don't really like using this term, but 4chan has been a place for 'normalfags' for quite a while now. It attracts too much teenagers and is a type of place 'to get engaged with'.
Not saying 4-ch is the epitome of maturity, but I think there's a difference in mentality between, say, DQN and most 4chan boards. It's not the kind of place to get really engaged with, too. I personally just go there, post my current thoughts, my captchas, maybe roleplay grandpa, and leave.

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".

It's mostly teenagers and early twenty-somethings, which is understandable considering it's sort of rare today for someone to have experienced the goodness of imageboards and non-static forums in their hey-day--they just don't know / care that there was something that was (for some) a thing that was actually worth using.

For me, the last place that was worth regularly checking into was krautchan, and now that that's gone I consider the *chan-verse to be essentially dead, defunct, inert. I'm beginning to be getting too old for this shit anyway. But it will always be a part of me though and I will never forget the special joy it brought me. It really has been an honor

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).

php got upgraded and all of mediawiki broke w

I unbroke it enough to pull out the non-talk namespaces and turned that into a static archive + download of the wikitext (should make making a new wiki and importing what you care about easy, but if somebody starts something and needs more than what's there, just find me and contact me and we can figure that out), which is how it'll remain indefinitely. It'll switch over once the DNS rolls over.

State of Now (9)

1 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2020-01-01 15:46 ID:cbgZaz8s

In the middle of the wasteland there stands the crucified dried out corpse of 4chan: kept alive by corporate overlords through wires giving it energy, social media prosthesis that serve more durable than the decaying flesh, research agency tubes injecting enough ideology juices to keep its living functions operational - all so it would continue playing the role of useful idiot strawman for as long as needed to those that keep it active. The spinoffs have all died out from hunger, dysentery, or were gunned down by spies and agents before they could make any sort of significant impact - they were a drag and weren't needed. Violent bots and cybernetically enhanced tribesmen roam the wasteland in search of new flesh they can consume. Latest developments in mental opium have blurred the distinction between friend and foe. A landscape intentionally left in such a state as to serve a grim reminder: "stay in your safety shelter, you don't want to be here."

Amongst the wreckage, charred bones and poisonous waste walks the monk commonly known as 4-ch, collecting a list of names of all the deceased and departed.

2 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2020-01-01 22:03 ID:Heaven

4chan is kept alive not because of some looney conspiracy but because it's an extremely low maintenance site. Threads are automatically pruned and image and text limits prevent any thread from taking up too much space on the servers. The amount of content on 4chan at any given time is always guaranteed to be less than 1% that of a site like reddit. It also doesn't get anywhere near as much traffic as people think it does.

Hiro does some shady shit with the site, don't get me wrong, but it's less "4chan is a front for a government mind control program" and more, "4chan collects information to sell to porn companies without telling you".

Also, 8ch was a much bigger and much better strawman than 4chan. It had a much smaller userbase that said and did far worse things than 4chan, and was inaccessible via google, meaning normalfags couldn't look into it like they could 4chan. Why on earth would they eliminate such a perfect strawman in favor of a site that's biggest legacy is the large amount of weird porn it produces?

I'm not saying not to be distrustful. But you shouldn't have confidence in things you don't actually know that much about.

5 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2020-01-01 23:12 ID:Heaven

Didn't 8chan's death produce a shitton of spinoffs and increase in traffic for other chans? By this reasoning 4chan being kept alive artificially is actually profitable for the powers that value control and centralization. 4chan does its job of serving a specific demographic that doesn't fit anywhere else and is also easier to control, manipulate and influence than any of the more niche sites of the same kind. Controlled opponents are a highly valuable commodity.

Also, moot works for google now. All the philosophies, ethics and knowledge possessed by the creator of the first western imageboard belong directly to the biggest internet company in the western world now.

6 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2020-01-01 23:24 ID:Heaven

Also also, consider that the biggest imageboard in Russia (dvach) is directly owned by a company with heavy ties to the Russian government ( Their /pol/ equivalent hates their government and their country as hard as people this side of the cyberworld do. This at a time when fringe and independent critics of Russia and the Russian government within Russia are persecuted by law for their activities.

7 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2020-01-02 20:36 ID:Heaven

First things first, a large, centralized community will always have more power than a bunch of tiny decentralized ones. It would've made much more sense to take down 4chan than 8ch because 4chan is a large community with preset boards.

The size of something like 4chan's /pol/ makes it very easy for them to conduct raids, and speed and high user count makes deleting the threads and banning the users ineffective because a new thread will pretty much instantly start up made by someone else.

8ch, on the other hand, on top of having a smaller userbase to begin with, has many different /pol/ derived boards, most of which hate eachother. None of these small groups really has the manpower to do anything beyond raiding eachother, which itself has no effect outside of a very small segment of 8ch.

The only way 8ch was able to actually get anything done was via outside assistance from people who spent most of their time on mainstream social media platforms like youtube and twitter. Most things that 8ch was supposedly responsible for were in fact mostly carried out on social media first and spread to 8ch afterwards. The only exception I can think of is qanon and even then most of the q people are from twitter.

It seems to be working fine. As I read from the "News" you have fixed the majority of the bugs. I think the community will not grow much, for that is what happens with nearly all image & textboards.

What I feel's missing is a new, different layout. This one is simply a green 4chan with the same features all over again.

By the way, what software did you use?
