This is glorious.
I came here to post that.
Guess Shii finally decided his status as patron deity of chandom was secure enough to disappear into the wired completely
he lives on in our heads, now
I noticed this a few days ago. I'm wondering if that book recommendation is ironic or not. He might as well recommend Yotsuba Society.
Also he changed his robots.txt to block archivers. Previously it just blocked things like that furry article he wrote which is mirrored elsewhere anyway.
The Society for the Study of Modern Image Board Culture was closed a few months ago too.
The world is ending!
Where am I meant to read Blind-Mute Loli and Nurse-kun now?
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.
... He also interviewed Jkid. So there you go.
ED or wikichan on archive.org. It sucks, I know.
world2ch.org is good enough of a replacement. Shii's just mad that someone else remembers everything as well as him
Does anyone remember what that story was that involved the crazy girl coming to the live in the house and suikoden?
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.
I check here daily as well. If there was at least 3 new posts a day I'd be happy. Just wish /b/ was better.
I like to search for text like "- wakaba 3.0.8 + futaba + futallaby -" in search engines.
It's amazing how many little sites have a small wakaba install and it's interesting what you could find there.
Interesting. All I've found so far is niche fetish boards, abandoned boards with posts dating back to 2005 and earlier, and assorted Japanese interest boards.
Guilty ones are; (Case between 2009-2013)

>4chan was good before.
4chan was never good.
http://afternoon.heliohost.org/ is really relaxing.
I used to post on there but I kinda lost interrest in the board. I don't like the design either. But it's a nice place, it really is. Thanks to it I'll probably get into that manga they are cheering for and whatnot
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...
Seems like a perfect match. Google is the best company they could've sold out to.
Ah, I hope they don't crap up YouTube. I watch a lot of copyright infringing movies and cartoons on there. It saves me from downloading it on my computer which takes a day or two.
> It saves me from downloading it
Not really. You're just downloading a low-quality copy instead.
>>7 I personally abhor movies/episodes on there 'cause of the crap quality.
7 years later and it's a shit hole.
I feel like I'm in a wasteland. A desert. I see the threads have shifted position, but it's only a mirage. The oasis I thought I saw was only "Top lel."
I continue to roam this barren place. The survivor's colony at DQN shuns people such as myself, the "other-boarders." The creatures I come across are few and far between, and I can not call them posters. You are one of the better ones. Not spam.
This hell was created by idealists such as this: http://4-ch.net/req/kareha.pl/1308515293/
This may be my last entry, or just another of many. If there are any others using this site, hello. I hope this finds you before the servers are no longer online.
Amazing. This is seriously the best post i've seen on here.
How often do you use your real name online? Do you intentionally avoid tying your pseudonymous/anonymous postings and content to your real world identity? Why or why not?
>>10 no we man the true name the order of magic gave you upon true initiation
It depends. Some communities have a formal feel and while there are people who use pseudonyms anyway, it's like you're going against the feel of the place. Many more are a lot more informal and I end up not giving a shit and just go with a random nick. But in online gaming I prefer to use a real.. nickname simply to make conversations in game flow better. Imagine saying, for example, "Matt" versus "BROfastRacedriver" (www) when trying to explain a plan to someone; people end up abbreviating the latter in all sorts of ways and it can get a bit confusing. Then again I don't end up playing in public games all that often.
This is a good point, I've never stopped to see just how much I restrain my speech when using a real name. I suppose simply being in a more formal community would make me restrain my speech either way.
Outside of Google+ (where I post publicly and under my real name, contributing almost exclusively in Japanese) and the odd online government petition, I tend to use either completely identical pseudonyms or minor variations on a theme on websites that require registration. I don't outright link these pseudonyms to my real name or my G+ account, but I don't go to any significant effort to obscure the connection either, so anyone who cares enough could probably find up to 80% of my online output in <20 minutes of googling.
The only times I actually bother to obscure my identity a bit more are instances where I'm concerned about future legal and/or social repercussions. Think accounts on private BitTorrent trackers, porn sites and the like.
On a related note, would anyone be interested in a Google+ community for 4-ch regulars?
I might be interested, but I only visit Google+ about once a month...
I only use my real name when it's a safe thing to do. Only my first, never the last. I'm no fool, I would never put my full name on the web.
I have never used my real name for anything on the internet, with the exception of a single gmail account under my name for official things (which hardly counts).
Meatspace... Haven't heard that one in a while. I feel like this should be more of a thing.
I personally almost never use my real name online. The few times I do, it's usually if I'm purchasing something offline, where it ask's for the card holder's name. (Not everyone does this check, so only when it's required I give it. Otherwise it's being mailed to someone with a weird name.)
What will it take to starve this shithole and make it finally die?
Your entire post is nullified by that single ``word".
>not checking user ID
We've got a live one here
Time to wake up people http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nk63p6UkrlQ&NR=1
So user IDs are not freakishly easy to change for anyone who knows how to unplug their modem these days? Wow, how did Squeeks manage that?
If someone unplugged his modem to post "Derp" without being detected as a jisakujien, I think the joke's on him.
Note my use of the word "persons". Plural form of "person". Can't you read?
Hey! Hey! what do you say?!
I like wikipedia. I've had my arguments on .999..., but as a whole, it is useful and as reliable as any other single source created by humans. As for:
>" you know IT IS THE FUCKING TRUTH"
... whenever I hear this, it is always some crackpot saying that someone is satan. I'm not worried.
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!
I've always found commercial Japanese websites to be flashier(no pun intended) than American ones, for things like anime and games at least.
Keep in mind that "the west," if it uses the internet at all, uses it to check the news and weather and maybe a social networking site. what you're dealing with here is a very small subset of 'sperging japanophiles posting about the internet on a messageboard whose primary draw is mimicing the nature of a popular japanese messageboard.
ASCII RULES! That and all of their language symbols are images...so the Japanese internet does have the most images...and the best porn. Oh yes...Japanese porn is the best.
You all should browse moar. Japanese websites are on the extremes. It all depends on where you look. Also, pay attention to Mr. >>36
>>Japanese websites are on the extremes
never. it's very rare.
Japanese don't use Frash
They use HTML5 and HTML
Theirs web sites are very simple
Japanese internet > *
all this Web2.0 nowadays is getting me sick
well,, dunno where to post this, but anyone know how to get to 12chan? really curious about it...
That said, we're definitely in a state of moral panic regarding this issue and it ought to be addressed with some rational thinking for once. Do weird things happen? Oh yes and no doubt a lot of us know from personal experience. Everyone has that MILF neighbor/creepy uncle. We only hear of the awful negative consequences because we only hear of the worst possible cases of abuse. I'm sure minor incidents happen far more often than we're willing to admit and there's no way to have a discussion about it or study it given the consequences of admission (for both parties). There's something of a witch hunt aspect about even discussing the topic at the moment (notice this is saged; notice I called >>47 a creep).
The main thing the US could use right now is a sliding scale especially aimed at softening the age 18 barrier. By that I mean a person age 18 shouldn't be made a life-long sex offender because their partner is 17 (it does happen; some prosecutors like easy wins). Why not a three year sliding scale based around 18? This would more accurately reflect the realities of the age group rather than forming a red line between 18 year-olds and those under.
While child pornography is indeed, illegal, most of the content on 12chan is not legally considered pornography. You may consider it as such, but your morals have no foothold in the American judicial system.
Plus, I wouldn't be so quick to judge other people's moral character if I were you. I;m sure you've done some pretty awful shit too.
>>52 is a second order pedophile; someone accusing others of pedophelia because he knows what its like and identifies them with it
>>53 is also a pedophile. in an attempt to defend the perceived honor of his disgusting practices he misconstrues others' attacks as motivated by delusions similar to his own, yet ultimately fails in this as his fierce pedo-rage quickly causes noticeable linguistic disruptions.
Trolls trolling trolls trolling drooling
Is there any research on analysis of anonymous mobilizations mass and cultural phenomenon h2: influential 4chan posts , no real wakachan posts that are famous famous 4chan posts..experimental check efficacy. i remember somebody basically has to create an infographic and a chat room and all of a sudden mobilized!
actually there is very little information on this. if you have access to scholarly journals I would look in the linguistics department, but for the most part the internet has been fundamentally ignored by researchers (save ad researchers).
