Internet Culture @4-ch

Internet Culture, sub-cultures, the people who use the internet and everything else relating to is up for discussing. Let's try to talk about more than just imageboard websites, as there is more to the internet than just them.
  • Label any links you post as 'NWS' if they are not safe for viewing at work.
  • Please don't bother posting browser crashers or shock sites. They'll get removed, and you might get banned.

It's been happening for a while now. The dead of 2ch is unavoidable. English textboards and imageboards have been declining noticeably for a long time as well. Many people have already quit. I, personally, will stay till the very end, shitposting about Avery Morrow.

This isn't true you know. Is being unable to separate your own dissatisfaction with something and its popularity really so ubiquitous in these parts? The only thing that I would agree is moribund is the western aping of 00s otaku culture.

32 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2016-08-31 04:33 ID:Heaven

I love the low post-rate of a lot of these sites. Independently, they sort of make up what resembles and could be comparable in the English to what would only be 2ch. The reason they're worth using is because they are strictly unlinked (for the most part) - this non-centralization aspect to these sort of places fosters a great amosphere for higher-quality posts, which of course is aided by the lower post rates, which is kept that way because the types of people using them can only be the kind of people who will spend time on these places for a while to begin with. Things are intrinsically not green, while at the same time keeping overgrowth slow. The way it is now is an ideal environment for the reasons why I at least still use these places. In this respect, we've already reached a "bitter end" - which in our case actually tastes pretty sweet

Bienvenido a Internet BBS with Google Translate (2)

Bienvenido a Internet is a website similar to Channel4

If you don't know spanish, you can translate it with Google Translate. Translation's quality is pretty good. Here's the link with translated website:

https://translate.google.com/translate?sl=es&tl=en&js=y&ie=UTF-8&u=https%3A%2F%2Fbienvenidoainternet.org%2F&edit-text=&act=url

2 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2017-04-24 17:25 ID:Heaven

There could be problems with translated page due to frames, if the links don't work, just open them in a new tab.

An interesting [or rather, uninteresting] fork of Wikipedia that is going to be Wikipedia, but editor controlled and no anonymous editing. Am I the only one that thinks the name of it will be its downfall, comrades?

2 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-09-18 00:38 ID:s7vN33Wa

What happened to Larry's last project, hmmm?

3 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-09-18 04:26 ID:Heaven

so it's a fork of wikipedia that's exactly the same but with a name that's even more gay? why?

4 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-09-18 04:31 ID:RhGVj37p

it's just like nupedia, the editor controlled encyclopedia that registered users could contribute to. nupedia was wikipedia's predecessor, and it failed. now larry is just trying to capitalize on wikipedia's success to bring it back from the dead.

5 Name: Albright!LC/IWhc3yc : 2006-09-18 08:41 ID:vgXJnhu5

But experts will be involved and made into editors. Aren't you trying to turn the successful "bazaar"-style Wikipedia model into a failed "cathedral" style of project?

Again, no. Experts will be expected to work shoulder-to-shoulder with ordinary people in this project in more or less the same bottom-up fashion that Wikipedia uses. The difference is that, when content disputes arise, whatever editors are paying attention to the article will be empowered to articulate a resolution--if the article falls in their area of specialization. Furthermore, their decisions will be enforceable. Think of editors as the village elders wandering the bazaar and occasionally dispensing advice and reining in the wayward. Their presence is merely a moderating, civilizing influence. They don't stop the bazaar from being a bazaar.

A noble idea, I guess. But fighting Wikipedia's momentum is gonna be an uphill battle.

6 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-09-18 09:41 ID:JOvKCNvY

Well, if they keep the licensing model (I guess they will/wil have to), then they and wikipedia can at least use each others articles. I kind of like the idea (The drama on some wikipedia articles is just to much, it would be good if there was a possibility for someone to step in and just stop it), but I don't think it will work. People seem to like to directly edit the articles over and over again, and debate over if everything is correct. Plus, "Wikipedia" sounds much cooler than "Citizendium".

Newfags, Tripfags, and Imageboard Conformity (21)

1 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-11-10 17:31 ID:gRwhjBlr

There's an excellent example of someone not integrating smoothly into an imageboard community going on right now on Gurochan. If you can tolerate the images, take a look here:

http://img.gurochan.net/f/wakaba.html

and here:

http://img.gurochan.net/f/wakaba.html

The user named Cindy posted, I can only assume, without reading the rules or lurking to get a feel for the community. Now she and her lack of familiarity have become the target of malicious, but arguably well-intentioned teasing -- things like the classic "DISREGARD THAT, I SUCK COCKS" routine run on people who don't have a tripcode, which she completely didn't get, and people impersonating her, both with and without tripcodes.

What do you think of this?

12 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-11-14 05:54 ID:DfK531GE

Brief glance, but couldn't see any evidence of her posting.

Though wouldn't you think that a girl twisted enough to firstly find gurochan, and then want to integrate into the "exclusive" community would know a bit better?

13 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-11-15 08:11 ID:q8bmWOxJ

You'd think, but somehow these rotten people slip into imageboard culture.

They try to be unique. They use smileys. Sometimes they even post useful things, which makes it even more difficult to retain the nice imageboard culture that we, or at least I, know and love. I can't quite pinpoint why their nonuniformity bothers me so much, but you can just tell that they stick out, and it's unpleasant on some level.

Am I the only one who feels like that?

14 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-11-15 08:20 ID:q8bmWOxJ

>>13 Sometimes they even post useful things, which makes it even more difficult to retain the nice imageboard culture that we, or at least I, know and love.
And by that I didn't mean to imply that a good imageboard is one without useful posts; I meant that the fact that these people occasionally do something right makes it even more difficult to categorically label them as foul and wrong.

15 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-11-15 08:22 ID:DfK531GE

>>13
I was thinking she was either a troll or extremely dense (who somehow was savvy enough to find gurochan?).

I know how you feel though. They don't have the sense to lurk more before posting. They should just stay in their avatar forums and enjoy their ego-stroking.

16 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-11-15 10:33 ID:q8bmWOxJ

I thought she had actually settled down, but apparently she flipped the fuck out and decided to "get back" at Gurochan by deleting her posts.

What a failure.

Why shouldn't people use names/tripcodes?

Anonymity != quality, identity != trash posting

Just because you can be Anonymous, doesn't mean you should

21 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2017-04-16 20:25 ID:wN31POSH

And this is why everyone hates small communities.

It creates a toxic, cult-like atmosphere where non-conformity is punished. You're smothering people and crushing out their joy.

What are some text/imageboards that you used to visit but have died since you discovered them? This thread is a communal location and support group for anyone experiencing that unique and poignant feeling, and to find other textboard survivors who used to post there, or generally discuss dead boards.

Might mess around more with linux after I graduate.

Really not that hard. I'm pretty computer illiterate but I was able to set up a dualboot easily. Plenty of online help.
