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.

Do you lurk any usenet groups? (7)

1 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2013-09-18 07:14 ID:hDc44q6f

I like to checkup on a.s.h. from time to time.

2 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2013-10-04 13:50 ID:Aw4PXmFO

Usenet still exists?

3 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2013-10-20 00:03 ID:w7SiiGuM

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 have a question about 2ch! (8)

1 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2010-08-02 08:14 ID:aojBqpN+

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

2 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2010-08-26 20:41 ID:Heaven

I don't see anything.

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.

4 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2012-04-21 06:50 ID:uY2z0CGa

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.
Good luck!
P.S. Don't eat that old rice in the fridge

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?

8 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2014-07-02 21:04 ID:i4gc6BVD

>>7
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

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.

>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.

https://bitmessage.org/wiki/Main_Page - Bitmessage is a P2P communications protocol used to send encrypted messages
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:

  • a chan cannot be shutdown by taking down any server or a group of servers due to decentralized nature of chans.
  • a chan cannot be effectively censored since any Bitmessage user who knows the chan passphrase can read the chan or post any message into the chan.
  • within a chan, user messages are anonymous to such a degree that messages contain neither the sender's nor the receiver's Bitmessage address.
  • two most disucced topics in popular chans appear to be black people and homosexuals, yet it's a fun place.

I have a tripcode/identity. But I only post with it in probably 1 out of every 20 posts.

79 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2014-03-26 19:35 ID:mS66gsmi

Always anonymous. I posted like twice with a name to impersonate someone who was using a name and not a tripcode.

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.

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

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.

13 Name: BluX : 2012-11-27 21:15 ID:yn77EoIT

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.
