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.

Are .info domains really that bad? (8)

1 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2012-12-06 21:29 ID:XAiZgIDo

I'm going to be seting up a personal site soon, and I was going to buy a domain, and I noticed just how damn cheap .info domains are! Though I know that sites with .info domains are the sites that have all the viruses and trojans, but would it really be so bad? What makes other domains so exspensive? A .cm domain goes for $90 bucks a year! I'm poor and a cheap-ass .info domain sounds great to me unless it means something really bad will come of using it.

2 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2012-12-17 05:10 ID:k6K8Ax3b

Just because it's uncommon. I guess people would be more wary of a .info site, even though .com, .net and .org sites can be shady too.

Is your site just for whatever? If so, you could just get a free Wordpress blog.

3 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2012-12-19 05:18 ID:d6l3j2wh

It's a personal site where I put things I make. I'd need actual hosting.

how cheap are you seeing .info for? you can get .com, net, or .org pretty cheap at

6 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2015-01-11 04:07 ID:F8uk6Puk

You can get a .me domain free for a year if you are a student via the github education pack

7 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2015-01-14 01:13 ID:Heaven

you have to be affiliated with a school to get that, so not all students qualify.

8 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2015-01-22 00:35 ID:MlI9yFxX

It doesn't seem they checked too scrupulously, apparently you were able to get a domain by saying you were a part of Cocks University and using a email account. They've fixed it now, but the people who signed up for the domains still have them.

I call upon all true 4channel users to a serious problem we are facing.Every day that passes more and more people come to this website just to joke around or make idiotic comments,even girls are showing up.True 4channel users out there:hikikomoris,
loners,help preserve this space that we used to have just for us.Take off every information about 4channel from wikipedia and
other sites,make it difficult for people to know about this space,because then,those who come here will be the ones wuho share our lifestyle.

I created my own bbs and didn't tell anyone about it. After about six months i deleted it, with a grand total of five posts; three of which were pictures of bulbasaur from google images, one which was a first post post, and one eerie deleted post to give the board some mystery.

I still consider it my favourite board ever

2ch is quite popular, does it suffer from the same type of idiocy that comes with being popular? I don't know japanese.. but i wonder how the other members of 2ch deal with it...?

38 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2008-11-29 16:44 ID:Heaven

Trolls on 2ch are generally more aware that their blatant idiocy will not be tolerated long, as they face many more posters and will thus be shunned very quickly, unless the troll in question is a fast learner and stops because of this fact.

The net is for everyone. Stop trying to establish who can go to what sites.

41 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2015-01-18 16:48 ID:vxGq5Szd

I'm not entirely sure what he means by that, but building off what I can discern from that idea, I think it would be a better idea to make new users quickly knowledgeable about how to behave on this site, as that would be easier to enforce than controlling who visits this site at all.
I think a good deterrent for people that would be more suited for imageboards and phpBBs is all ready present on the site in its being a textboard. Also the very minimalist page greeting new users that reads in very small text, ''this is a site for anonymous discussion"drives away less scrupulous people.
In terms of popularity, 4-ch is way past its apex, so I don't think there should be any concern. Seeing as the prior posts are from 2008, I'm sure it was very warranted to become concerned about a luxury such as the type of users a site gets, though.

What is the difference between 0ch styled BBS's and western forums! Is it purely the ability to post anonymously! I have seen phpBB forums were guests can post!

14 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2009-07-09 19:35 ID:GOJfVkyo


There is no ego attached to the posts, no form of identity needed (or wanted in most of our cases). There aren't prominent users or newbie users, only users.

That's why we want the board to stay anonymous, with no need for registration.

15 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2009-07-10 02:13 ID:Xi2yNOew

How is that different from having anonymous and tripcodes?

16 Name: !MILKRIBS4k : 2009-07-10 02:30 ID:Heaven

Then you can only have anonymous and tripcodes! I have yet to see an imageboard/textboard that requires registration! With western forums you can have forced username use, or the ability to have a guest account! There is not much variation in imageboards/textboards they are all trying to be the same to an extent!

17 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2009-07-17 23:26 ID:6lgt+i8a

Still would be nice to at least have a more traffiked site here.

18 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2009-07-22 00:36 ID:ySNzRjgP

Well, have you seen western forums without ability to register? I bet you haven't. This means that thos forums still attract shitstorms of children, trolls and people with no lives who actually have time to register and maintain an online identity.
Tripcodes weren't made to replace registration, they are just a way to keep your identity, but only when you need it.
There are a lot more good reasons for preferring 2ch-style boards.

19 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2009-07-22 00:42 ID:ySNzRjgP

Your "enclave theory" is true when it comes to 2ch-style boards in English. However, could you say the same about boards in other languages, like e.g German, Spanish or French?
Japan has much more internet users than Germany. Still, Germany only has one dominating image board (Krautchan) and no text boards i know of.
Why would you relate computer literacy to activity on such boards?

20 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2015-01-13 06:08 ID:ZR7+R4hu

The 8chan admin has partnered with 2ch and recently they added a bunch of boards (all the 4chan textboards) to the site. Non-Japanese are supposed to be able to post on them, but it seems like that's not working at the moment.
Here's a link to one:
I wonder how long they'll last.

21 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2015-01-15 21:30 ID:aabhwIdB

I came here to post about this.

The boards are inside the 大使館 (embassy) section in the menu and posting seems to work now. At the moment, the general quality of posts is very low however.

22 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2015-01-15 21:33 ID:aabhwIdB

Actually, there was a time when WWWBoard was the go to script for western forums. I didn't support registered accounts at all, not even tripcodes.

I fondly remember those days.

Why We Hate Gaia (121)

1 Name: Kuja : 2007-09-03 05:04 ID:J93X4b2o

Any Reasons?

I was a FORMER Gaiafag. I liked it for a bit, then I realized everyone was more concerned more about their e-penis and vagoo than actually talking about things. And the RPing is extremely lame and clothes buying is about as evil and explotive as shit; and the monthly payments... What the hell, isn't that Real Money Trading? Yetch. And the lot, about 40% of people who discussed Anime, Real Life Drama and Video Games were total douches and for about another 20% were more concerned about what the hell their internet character's going to wear. And how did I become a former? Easy. Banned. For posting up the truth about how everyone was being total dicks and e-persona faggots.

If GaiaFagLand is going to be an MMORPG, there's one thing I can see; it's going to be fucking failing below what we're seeing now.

I Fucking HATE Gaya! Its not full of "weeaboos" It's full of pretentious psudo-intellectual cocksuckers and punk ass internet tough guys. The mod's are a damn joke and are nothing more than children policing children in the most lazy sense possible.

I had an original avatar worth about 60 maybe 70 mill, My Angelic Sash was the best I could ever do and I was endlessly berated for owning it... often told its not a "rich" item and therefore I supposedly fail. So sorry I cant steal money out of my moms purse at night so I can whore Gaia Cash like those predatory, ultra rich alpha vendors in the MP do who all have the shittiest attitude toward EVERYONE and think every body owes them!

One day while dropping in one of the god awful flash spaces in my favorite cosplay I was troll bombed by some twat with a username based on Death Note-EMO-Cookies or some retard shit. With that I said fuck it, I had enough of this garbage and I'm sick of it. I'm fucking done! To hell with Gaia, I wish it would get shut down and I wish I never discovered it in the first place! People are fake as it gets and will alienate anyone who is not exactly like they are!

That site needs to get shut the fuck off! Imagine all those 24/7 Gaian idiots who would go insane over not being able to sit and rot grammar-natzing and acting all superior in B5 1023 or whatever from sun up till... sun up, every goddamn day of the year while the rest of us have to work and go to school. I swear I will never go back to that pixel sewer!

I just looked at Commodore's webpage for it, and my first impression was "gah! Why would anyone make an embedded YouTube clip autoplay and suppress all its interface buttons?" Then I watched the actual trailer, and while the interface does look rather sleek, I can't say I appreciate the way they implicitly claim various pieces of FOSS software as their own creation and/or somehow exclusive to their OS.

On an unrelated note, why is my captcha "houttment" on every 4-ch board I've visited today?

All the little things that get you banned from 4chan (27)

1 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2012-05-15 03:04 ID:9Ltq8Kho

So, I was responding to someone asking a question about an otome game and posted the game's manufacturer's website and got banned for 'posting a banned website'. I was completely unaware that posting that website would get me banned.

A few weeks ago something similar happened with another website, this time when I was trying to share translation files to another anonymous and got banned for, once again, 'posting a banned website'.

Is there a list of all these websites/words/phrases that'll get you auto banned? It's a bit silly to get banned for posting websites when you have no warning that said website will result in a ban. It would be helpful if there was a list somewhere.

18 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2014-08-13 20:59 ID:ldm/B1Wn

b& for posting garbage outside of /b/. Thing is that I can't look it up. /banned says I'm not banned but when I try to post it says Ban evasion. Origninal ban was forposting bla bla bla. I don't get this site sometimes.

19 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2014-08-24 16:26 ID:XB1gjvYW

I haven't been to 4 in ages, but a few years back I got banned from 7chan for repeatedly trolling with furry sex pics of dinosaurs. Been an iichanner/wakachanner/whatever we are now since.

If you're banned you probably deserve it. I know some of the mods. Used to be a mod. I did a good job of not looking away when misconduct was conducted on the board. Just read the rules and don't lollygag.

21 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2014-09-25 11:54 ID:Heaven

I also used to be a mod, and have known at least 30000 mods in my lifetime, so your opinion is wrong.

22 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2014-09-29 07:59 ID:G9vYVTxV
