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.

Websites marking mp4's as gifs (2)

Why is it such common trend for websites to supply a collection of "gifs" that are actually just silent videos on repeat? Shit like tenor, giphy's gifv format, among other things. Why do they bother? All it does it make the user more inconvenienced when finding what they want. Why not just say what it is?
Whenever I'm looking for something now I instinctively ignore sites like gfycat because they've only given out pseudo-gifs for so long. It's annoying.

2 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2019-07-07 09:22 ID:zGdFLI77

GIF compression is horrible and so is the quality (mainly due to the 256 color limitation.)

But if you prefer downloading 10mb of data to watch a video that looks like an PlayStation game FMV from 1995, good for you.

I think like all things in life, moderation is key. Memes are great in that they represent a group-based idea of something that is funny, interesting or literally exists. They can help like-minded people connect. But I think lately the word meme has come to have some of the same properties as the word fuck; It's easily used in many contexts. I think this is dangerous because it can lead people to be lazy in their critical thinking. i.e. "Why is that like that?" "Because meme"

The problem with the modern net is that people see it as a legitimate platform. Back in the day people posted whatever they wanted without any fear or ambitions because they knew that nobody in the real world would ever see it. Nowadays, the internet and the real world are joined at the hip. Posting that you want to kill all the jews is no longer just you venting in the virtual world, it's a very real political statement.

Next Big Internet Thing (67)

1 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2008-01-29 03:51 ID:YO+RcM1H

In 2002 Something Awful was the place to be. Next came YTMND, and from 2003-2006 4-chan was the greatest thing ever. So what do you think is next?

It's unlikely, but if 4-ch were to suddenly explode in popularity I wouldn't be too surprised.

I know it might be retarded to say this about Internet culture, but I highly recommend you guys read Oswald Spengler's "Decline of the West". Although he can get a bit autistic with pseudo-metaphysics, his main ideas are on point, but the Internet is recent and clear evidence that his historical model can apply to even subcultures AS LONG AS there is a higher-ideal(s) and enough stimuli and people to participate. (Despite that, if you want a long-lasting culture, religion IS necessary. Materialism does not a culture make.)

Twitter

You have both /pol/r9k/ social rejects alongside tumblr twats, both of which spend all day posting nonsensical bullshit, all backed by the world's shittiest, most poorly optimized interface, and a retarded character limit that absolutely destroys any and all potential for discussion on the platform

It's as if someone took the worst parts of every website, combined them into one, and then somehow managed to find a way to make it even worse.

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

IRC: why did it fail? (94)

1 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-04-06 01:14 ID:6ppXr5qs

It's widely banned for its tendency to be a DDoS lightningrod, and only slightly less infamous for its impenetrable cliques of time-wasting losers. Was IRC just in the wrong place at the wrong time, or is the protocol responsible for its own failure? And how could we do better?

Discuss!
