Bienvenido a Internet is a website similar to Channel4

An interesting [or rather, uninteresting] fork of Wikipedia that is going to be Wikipedia, but editor controlled and no anonymous editing. Am I the only one that thinks the name of it will be its downfall, comrades?
What happened to Larry's last project, hmmm?
so it's a fork of wikipedia that's exactly the same but with a name that's even more gay? why?
it's just like nupedia, the editor controlled encyclopedia that registered users could contribute to. nupedia was wikipedia's predecessor, and it failed. now larry is just trying to capitalize on wikipedia's success to bring it back from the dead.
But experts will be involved and made into editors. Aren't you trying to turn the successful "bazaar"-style Wikipedia model into a failed "cathedral" style of project?
Again, no. Experts will be expected to work shoulder-to-shoulder with ordinary people in this project in more or less the same bottom-up fashion that Wikipedia uses. The difference is that, when content disputes arise, whatever editors are paying attention to the article will be empowered to articulate a resolution--if the article falls in their area of specialization. Furthermore, their decisions will be enforceable. Think of editors as the village elders wandering the bazaar and occasionally dispensing advice and reining in the wayward. Their presence is merely a moderating, civilizing influence. They don't stop the bazaar from being a bazaar.
A noble idea, I guess. But fighting Wikipedia's momentum is gonna be an uphill battle.
Well, if they keep the licensing model (I guess they will/wil have to), then they and wikipedia can at least use each others articles. I kind of like the idea (The drama on some wikipedia articles is just to much, it would be good if there was a possibility for someone to step in and just stop it), but I don't think it will work. People seem to like to directly edit the articles over and over again, and debate over if everything is correct. Plus, "Wikipedia" sounds much cooler than "Citizendium".
Oh goody. This must be the "open meritocracy" he'd been blathering about. Too bad it's just another euphemism for rule by celebrity.
dicks out for Harambe
I am disappoint.
I am very disappoint.
they have so many boards...
Stop saying that tripcodes are only to be used in emergencies. A chat board is a chat board and some people like to chat with names. A board is not a sacred shrine to anonymity just because it doesn't force you to enter a name and the "Name" box is blank by default.
Fuck off tokiko. People stopped liking you years ago.
You are a tripcode thief! I am calling the internet police on you!
2ch is dying
It's been happening for a while now. The dead of 2ch is unavoidable. English textboards and imageboards have been declining noticeably for a long time as well. Many people have already quit. I, personally, will stay till the very end, shitposting about Avery Morrow.
I suck dicks
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.
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
What is the point of a text board when books and e-mail exist?
There's an excellent example of someone not integrating smoothly into an imageboard community going on right now on Gurochan. If you can tolerate the images, take a look here:
The user named Cindy posted, I can only assume, without reading the rules or lurking to get a feel for the community. Now she and her lack of familiarity have become the target of malicious, but arguably well-intentioned teasing -- things like the classic "DISREGARD THAT, I SUCK COCKS" routine run on people who don't have a tripcode, which she completely didn't get, and people impersonating her, both with and without tripcodes.
What do you think of this?
Brief glance, but couldn't see any evidence of her posting.
Though wouldn't you think that a girl twisted enough to firstly find gurochan, and then want to integrate into the "exclusive" community would know a bit better?
You'd think, but somehow these rotten people slip into imageboard culture.
They try to be unique. They use smileys. Sometimes they even post useful things, which makes it even more difficult to retain the nice imageboard culture that we, or at least I, know and love. I can't quite pinpoint why their nonuniformity bothers me so much, but you can just tell that they stick out, and it's unpleasant on some level.
Am I the only one who feels like that?
>>13 Sometimes they even post useful things, which makes it even more difficult to retain the nice imageboard culture that we, or at least I, know and love.
And by that I didn't mean to imply that a good imageboard is one without useful posts; I meant that the fact that these people occasionally do something right makes it even more difficult to categorically label them as foul and wrong.
I was thinking she was either a troll or extremely dense (who somehow was savvy enough to find gurochan?).
I know how you feel though. They don't have the sense to lurk more before posting. They should just stay in their avatar forums and enjoy their ego-stroking.
I thought she had actually settled down, but apparently she flipped the fuck out and decided to "get back" at Gurochan by deleting her posts.
What a failure.
I don't mind conformity so long as it's not conforming in opinions or interests
Why shouldn't people use names/tripcodes?
Anonymity != quality, identity != trash posting
Just because you can be Anonymous, doesn't mean you should
And this is why everyone hates small communities.
It creates a toxic, cult-like atmosphere where non-conformity is punished. You're smothering people and crushing out their joy.
What are some text/imageboards that you used to visit but have died since you discovered them? This thread is a communal location and support group for anyone experiencing that unique and poignant feeling, and to find other textboard survivors who used to post there, or generally discuss dead boards.
rest in peace.
Letterbox is down for me. Anyone know what happened?
Yeah, Letterbox is down. I hope everything's OK. I love that place.
probably just maintainence or some such. it's been down for a time before.
if anyone wants to revisit just how shitty world4ch was, here's a dump of all the posts from the /prog/ board:
Tablecat's Lounge RIP ;_;
RIP RobotMetal, even if I only visited once or twice.
Post in ubuntu 9.04.
Holy fuck, seriously this thread 8 years old?
That's what I say about every single thread in this site
I had a dualboot of Win 7/Ubuntu but I never used Linux that much, eventually I just got rid of the partition on my harddisk to make room for more chinese cartoons.
Might mess around more with linux after I graduate.
Really not that hard. I'm pretty computer illiterate but I was able to set up a dualboot easily. Plenty of online help.

Slackware -- it's secure, stable, and Real Linux.
Managing your own dependencies is a bit out there for me, and that's coming from a gentoo user. Might as well just do LFS. What's secure about resolving binary dependencies? No use flags, no thanks!
If you are unsatisfied with the default libraries, you may as well use sbopkg. It's a terminal-based interface that resolves dependencies, building official .tar.gzs using slackbuilds.

I can't part with portage. I used slackware years ago and it wasn't totally unpleasant. I'd certainly prefer it today to something that was difficult to de-bloat.
Arch, stability isn't a concern when you don't have a job!
Have you taken the brown pill yet, mateys?it's a tough pill to swallow! The brown pill was founded in 1999 by Sir Reginald Brownpill, who presents and narrates the attached video.https://media.8ch.net/brownpill/src/1433783228977.mp4 Forget red and blue pills, brown pills are the way of the future.Video related.

Oh man, I really don't know now. Should I delete this for being spammy, or leave it because it hilariously misspells the URL?
