I like to checkup on a.s.h. from time to time.
Usenet still exists?
Sure (and post too!): rec.arts.anime.misc is a survivor from the real O.G. days of anime fandom, and still gets a decent amount of postings. How about comp.os.cpm, a group devoted to an operating system that dates from 1974 along with discussion on running the ancient decades old hardware for this OS? I have some CP/M based computers (like 35 years old!) and it's a blast to see people still running these relics. Going on usenet is to experience, hands on, a taste of what the early day of the Internet were like.
Hopefully usenet will, cockroach like, outlast all of the flashy moderated/censored boards and be the "last man standing" of online discussion one day...
i wish more people would use usenet nowadays.
makes me sad that I'm such a newfag at live who could not experince the old internet in it's glory days
Sorry but I am not a pedo.
I still check in on sci.chem and sci.physics from time to time.
I havent logged in into my eternal september account in a long time I hope it's still valid.
I was recently browsing 2ch in a section with tons of threads and I deleted a part of the link and landed in a section with three threads and very few replies.. http://kamome.2ch.net/english/index.html
I also have a question about 2ch!
They banned my ISP (charter, in USA)
Is anyone here able to post on 2ch?
Do you use a proxy?
I used to use http://www.ejapan.eu/blue/
but now it is banned as well, and I can't find any
other proxies that let me post on 2ch.
move to Japan and you can access to 2ch!!!!!!!!!!
Hello, me from two years ago!
2ch only blocks your post if your hostname contains a particular major ISP, but the country of origin does not matter.
A year in the future you will set up a cheap VPS located in America and it will work for 2ch if you route your connection through it.
P.S. Don't eat that old rice in the fridge
It's slightly heart wrenching, yet somehow incredibly touching,
to see someone talk to themselves two years ago like that. Seriously
i looked at the the english FAQ and they say that 2ch and futuba channel, are both more fucked up than 4chan, is this true?
4chan used to be about as bad as futaba, but then 4chan 2.0 came along and boards like /l/ and /g/ and got ruined, and, now that 4chan is mainstream, there isn't really much on /b/ other than porn and shitposting. a lot of the gore and stuff on /b/ was cited as a deterrent for people new to 4chan, but again, that's long gone
Hello,before you ask, I am new to this site and even chan culture itself.A lot of leople dislike new users ,maybe because they remind them of themselves or even because they don't stick to the status quo.That aside lets talk about what it's or was like to be new ITT
Currently oldfagging for the first time on a board. I don't know if it's a good feeling or not.
This is my second day on this board, and I know you're all secretly jealous.
when I was new here I posted without awareness lurking things hidden in the burrows were secretly judging me.It might look deserted, but spider nests always look like that on the outside
Why do people not add spaces after punctuation?
Why do people not add newlines after >> references?
Why do people not condense their quotes with commas?
> Why do people not condense their quotes with commas?
This bothers me too.
Does anyone know of any good internet communities that they would be willing to share? Kind of like how 4chan was good before.
Also post general interesting places on the net.
Some of the smaller sub-reddits are quite good.
I recommend /r/AskHistorians and /r/DataHoarder.
I like Wizardchan, they help fight the normie menace.
uncleb.net is just starting out and is really up and coming.
uncle /b/ is actually pretty cool. They organize a lot of raids in their irc too.
>abandoned boards with posts dating back to 2005 and earlier
There's something that makes me unquestionably sad, yet happy to see those sites. To look at a perfectly preserved image of what that place, those people, were like in the recent past. Sometimes, I want to make a post, just to let any future person know that someone else had seen the page. I never do, I don't want to change the site. I want it to be unchanged for the next person who comes across it, whenever that may be.

http://bittext.ch/_MhiklxwCp - Q's AKTIVLIST OF CHANS, BROADCASTS & MAILING LISTS
Starting from version 0.3.5, Bitmessage introduced an additional feature called a chan, a decentralized anonymous mailing list. Unlike traditional mailing lists used via email:
So how often do you people with names or tripcodes post anonymously?
If you're interested in ~2005 tripcode vs. anonymity shenanigans, give this a read:
Fantastic (if a little tl;dr) article by Anonymous-san.
His article may be piece of gold but the comment section is a goldmine.
I have a tripcode/identity. But I only post with it in probably 1 out of every 20 posts.
Always anonymous. I posted like twice with a name to impersonate someone who was using a name and not a tripcode.
Moot's killed that link quite properly. Does anyone have an archive?
Hello there boys, girls and people of a transgender state. I was just wondering where everyone is from. I'm Irish and I don't seem to have spotted any other Paddy's around. So far I've spotted English,Canadian, Japanese and Americans but I'm pretty much a n00b here so everyone give a shout out for your country/state whatever.
Guy from Tralee,Kerry,Munster,Ireland,EU
not all of us support the crap it does.
Co. Tyrone, Ireland.
Hailing from the same great country as >>1
I am here to study English.
I wonder if those other two people from here are still on 4-ch, 6 years on.
I am making my own textboard just as an experiment because textboards are fun. What features would you like to see on a textboard that doesn't exist today?
I am thinking maybe it would be good to have a textboard where discussion is threaded instead of linear, but I'm not sure.
If threaded you could make it with >> replys too. I miss that sometimes when posting on a certain anonymous comment section
Hidden sage, possible check box instead of email field ("☑ don't bump")
Quote preview (ex: hovering over >>number shows the post)
Replies are linked in the original post (ex: if >>5 quotes >>1, there will be a link to >>5 in >>1)
Built-in post filtering by username or key word
Thread "following" feature: get notified when there are new posts in a thread you like
Individual thread or post hiding
"Infinite scroll" instead of pages
Optional forced anonymous view: people can post with names and tripcodes, but you don't have to view them
Sexpcode instead of traditional BBCode (http://cairnarvon.rotahall.org/misc/sexpcode.html)
default sage in link field, users can manually delete it to bump
options in url for such things would make surveillance easier now that i think about it, disregard them
Would it be possible to use some sort of text-based captcha equivalent? Something to combat spam that doesn't stop people from browsing and posting via a text-only browser like elinks.
Or maybe just some "don't post here" spam trap fields.
a lot of sites (desuchan and some other low pop. imageboards being good examples) just use fields where you have to leave one word in a certain field
A collapsible thread list would be nice.
My idea for a board: any thread that is not on the front page is autosaged, where posts made do not bump the thread, unless "age" is used in the email field.
direct-to-email posting options like you would expect of a mailing list
interconnection of threads in an additive way that forcibly requires new threads to derive from others. There would be an origin, and after that every thread would have to be a subcategory of this, or a subcategory of a subcategory etc.
Might be neat
Seems like some guy on 4chan's /g/ made an old school BBS, as in, telnet board. It's focused on /g/ and it shows, but it's still a nice romp down the memory lane.
Telnet to gopher.su at port 1234, sysop is usually present in chatroom 18.
Being 21, I never even got to see what this kind of stuff was like.
It was cool while it lasted...
BLUX? WHERE ARE YOU?
it was up again like 2 days ago
It's back and hopefully to stay 24/7 now, I upgraded router and firewall.
Okay, >>8-san here. So it's working? Cool. Could someone explain to me like I'm five how to connect to/use it?
Open telnet client of choice (PuTTy for example), type gopher.su as address, 1234 as port and then FOLLOW THE ON-SCREEN INSTRUCTIONS, seriously, people, read them! Also, pressing H brings up interactive help.
telnet> open gopher.su
telnet> open gopher.su
telnet> open gopher.su
telnet> open gopher.su
telnet> open gopher.su
one would think it's been said enough times already, but...
> port 1234
> 1234 as port
this means that port 23 probably won't work.
Not a fan of 4chan BBS
Too bad it's dead.
This is glorious.
I came here to post that.
Its very horrible.
...Please visit it.
