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.
>can I link it?
Yes, you can.
>Also, is there a good resource to learn about places like world2ch?
Thanks! The second site is interesting, the layout looks better than either 2ch.sc or 5ch now. Also appreciate the first link, the info on 2ch on that site is cool.

probably CP like every other niche imageboard/textboard eventually succumbs to
Any proof that it was larger than PTT.cc?
Just going by what's claimed on Wikipedia, PTT's peak is apparently 500,000 posts a day while 2ch gets 2.5 million a day. That's a big gap. No idea if that info is reliable though, lol Wikipedia.
Of course, and they were all a decade before any chan. They were dial-in BBS
