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.

textboard features (12)

1 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2014-01-08 18:28 ID:Heaven

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.

3 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2014-01-17 03:43 ID:Heaven

If threaded you could make it with >> replys too. I miss that sometimes when posting on a certain anonymous comment section

4 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2014-01-20 07:27 ID:ImRQNIw0

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)

5 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2014-01-20 20:03 ID:Heaven

No cookies or something like that, instead options in the URL for customization
For example, with http://4-ch.net/s/net/ you could get persistent sage in link field

>>4
How many of those can be done without javascript? No javascript please

6 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2014-01-21 02:34 ID:Heaven

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

7 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2014-01-30 15:23 ID:ImRQNIw0

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.

8 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2014-02-03 17:36 ID:f4LrcLGh

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

9 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2014-02-08 19:56 ID:Heaven

>>5
all of them except infinite scroll and thread following can be done without javascript.

10 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2014-02-21 18:14 ID:ljxeEzYk

A collapsible thread list would be nice.

11 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2014-03-31 18:50 ID:Heaven

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.

12 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2014-04-22 21:04 ID:nNdHfyJJ

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

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

4chan BBS (17)

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.

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.

>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.

I don't think the book suggestion is ironic, actually. I happened to stumble upon it at a library and he actually interviewed Shii, although he didn't get much out of it because he asked basic questions that you could already answer by lurking on ESK.

I would kill for a copy of Shii's wiki. Unfortunately it seems everyone assumed it was more or less permanent, but some parts of it must be on a hard drive somewhere. With that in mind, I'm trying to resurrect as much as I can.

If anyone who reads this has a copy of one of the articles, a list of what was lost, a link to one of Shii's essays, anything, I would greatly appreciate it.

Why doesn't the Japanese Internet have more pictures? (66)

1 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-07-14 02:40 ID:nSCk2gGy

Is it just me, or do Japanese websites seem much more spartan than their American, Korean, and Chinese counterparts? Just look at the Japanese Wikipedia, or compare Asahi Shimbun's website to the Chosun Ilbo's. And websites for anime for the most part are very minimalistic too. A few background pictures, a bit of static decoration, and that's it. Where are the obnoxious flash-games, the flashy advertisements, the animated buttons I've come to associate with commercial internet?

Is it because so many Japanese web-users browse on cell-phones? Or it just to save bandwidth out of an ethical philosophy of frugality?

Just seems a little weird to me that one of the leading nations on the internet has such plain websites.

Especially for Wikipedia, I mean an article on something as visual as the OS-tans, and they don't have a single picture. Not a single picture for the article on Azumanga Daioh, Haruhi, or Evangelion. I mean, these were big-hit animes, but not a single picture? I mean, the Hungarian, Thai, and Indonesian versions of the EVA page have more pictures than the country of origin!

Because it looks good and adds functionality.
You can do a lot of things with JS and Flash that you can't do with simple HTML. Some of those things are good, most are bad.

And even if people are using their phones, 3G/LTE connections these days are pretty fast.

Intel is funding (discretely and openly) companies/startups/whatever that specialize in bloated JS. The goal is that websites have so much shit tacked on that the update cycle can continue, because your i7 won't have enough power to display the latest tip calculator from HN.
