Krautchan.net 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.
Don't you dare bring up Kohlchan. It's not a worthy successor and should be killed immediately.
Eh, it's where most of the community went to
Ernstchan is not as active and already developed a very different culture than the original Krautchan.
Krautchan was not just the foreigner ghetto /int/
The other boards made worthwhile contributions to the German net community. In fact, it was the only site on the German internet worth lurking.
But it is funny how all of 4chans cancer uses images that were made on /int/ initially.
The original Krautchan community was probably the best foreign language flavor that existed. Ironically the more restrained atmosphere made it very similar to the old canonical boards and for several years it was a "true" chan. The advent of /int/ and /bant/ styled boards while brilliant in their appeal to bring in new blood made it popular but turned it into something else, similar to what we now see at 4chan. RIP Bernd. Your contributions live on.
They made an important step in the resurrection NSDAP ideolody among the middle class white people! Good job guys :3 I am proud of you
It kinda makes me sad since they had a rather unique fork of Wakaba, I wonder if Der General will release Desuchan anytime soon.
RIP krautchan. I barely went there but it wasn't bad at all.
