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.
But that's par for the course on 4-ch.
Just being a regular here makes you feel like an internet archeologist.
Amazing how 7 years have passed and in some ways nothing changed. If anything, ED-surfing kiddies spouting old memes only gotten worse.
I've had this issue with another website before.
There will only be more idiots over time.
One of the causes is that people spread this board on 4chan on /qa/ after it's take over.
I've come trough 4chan to this website and I don't want it to be filled with shitposting morons.
That aside, if you want to keep something secret, keep it secret.
And If it's not secret any more, move it where it's less likely to be found.
If the community deviates too much, it's the task of the admin to fix the problem.

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.
They ban you for posting links to volafile.io, I'm guessing because of gamergate.
I got automatically banned from 4chan for simply posting this link:
There's nothing bad on that site, so I don't know why it's in their blacklist...
I get banned for tripping 4chan's spam filter. If I had known about this thread, I'd document the list here.
is on the spam list
Users that post on /a/ exhentai threads are getting DMCA, and counter-requests take 10-14 business days to be dealt with. This means that requests aren't being dealt with in first place.
Jewcob is pretty rich. so it makes sense he has the new admins in his payroll. Apparently, he's been using his own money to make all the expenses. I guess the sales are not as high after all.
No, that's because of that Jennifer Lawrence leak and what it created.
(insider info, I swear)
you can also share CP on it. Same reason motherless links are banned
I usually make mirrors of interesting things, but Shii looked like such a fixture that I never bothered. I'm kicking myself here. Please tell me somebody else made one. Please?
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.
Hello friends, there is a full mirror here:
Thank you, I've been looking all over for it
Or he just wants to distance himself from the whole anyonymous board thing/internet historian and focus on more important pursuits. Such as publishing japanese pseudohistory on new age literature labels. You go girl!
Dammit, now I'm remembering all the good times I had on 4chan in 2003-2004.
do you think shii has ever had a bisexual/homosexual experience
* It's difficult to be prejudiced/biased against a poster because of who they are
* The focus is on the idea not the person who says it
* It is possible to say whatever opinion you like without repercussions
* It's easier for people to get away with contradictions
* It's easier for people to get away with for instance running away from the argument if they lose and then coming back in a different thread with the same opinions that were refuted earlier
* It's difficult to get to know a person. This means that one has to rely on the assumption of a shared culture to understand how that person thinks (not sure if this is true or not but it's an interesting idea)
* It is possible to speak in whatever tone you like without repercussions
The more anonymous the medium the more extreme the above points get.
Problem with getting to know people better is that it harbors a disease that lingers through every single shitty internet forum... The circlejerk.
since admins and mods can generally(?) see some sort of identity (IP, hashed IP, internal ID on talkboards etc) could some post confirming/denying that anonymity makes people into dishonest hypocrites?
You can already see poster IDs on most of the boards (not DQN and maybe a few others though), which --- as far as your question goes --- amounts to the same as seeing IPs.

Debating on the internet is a horrible idea. Whoever was dumb enough to create /debate/ shouldn't be trusted with moderating it.

What is the honest point of a crosspost
This board is dead just leave it.
Copied from >>>8ch/txt/531:
Off the top of my head... On the internet there's no time limit, which means that a debate can keep going virtually forever, until at least one of the participants gives up. The fact that you can't look the other person in the eyes and have to rely on text to communicate means that you're simultaneously more inclined to use harsh words and to misinterpret his words as harsher than he meant them to be (the same is true for your opponent).
Unlike a debate in real life, which happens in real time, a debate on the internet doesn't necessarily keep a fixed pace; there will be times where your opponent will reply to your posts almost immediately, and others where you have to wait days. All of this makes the activity of debating even more psychologically and emotionally stressful than it already is.
Add to that the fact that the participants seldom happen to be experts on the subject matter; rather, they know just enough about something to have an opinion on it and they lack a proper understanding of their opponent's position; increasingly driven by anger and a general disregard for truth, they'll twist facts to support their arguments and resort to every sophism under the sun to undermind their opponent's.
The result is often a clusterfuck of epic proportions that leaves everyone feeling frustrated and less human than they were at the beginning.
Copied from >>>8ch/txt/1062:
Not the guy you're replying to, but internet debates that rely completely on text typed quickly is that you lose tone, inflection, etc.
Specifically chan debates are an even worse idea. Without an identity (tripcodes don't count) or any reputation on the line it takes a HUGE degree of intellectual honesty to change your opinion. Similarly, 3rd party trolls can pretty much derail any thread/debate and with no way to verify identities you have no idea who said what and what you're actually replying to/arguing against.
One advantage is that it's almost impossible to interrupt people on the internet, something I have trouble with IRL.
you can get niggas from diverse places
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've been going to Masterchan and 76chan quite a lot lately
What's the verdict on 8chan?
Any good boards?
It looks like Cyberia at cerealexperiments died.
Look at the board list and check them out yourself. Some of the most popular boards are also available on 4chan, and a lot of the more niche boards are slow/inactive as expected.
I've encountered this little site over here: sushigirl.tokyo and I must say, it's not bad.
Is afternoon.heliohost.org down? I can't seem to access it, and this saddens me
Hi, I'm just saying hi because I understand you.
Also most links on here are down while the thread is only 2.5 years old which is scary.
I go to:
I think 8chan is superior in technology, setup and privacy (it has an onion site; works just fine without JS; does not rely on Google for CAPTCHAs) to 4chan. But the userbase just isn't the same. Without any real culture on some of the boards, it never really feels like 'home' like /int/ on 4chan did for me.
Yeah, that usually happens to people who don't like reading more than half a paragraph.
But I was just treating you nicely like you said :-(
i'm sorry i didn't mean that
trolling is lawful good now, dont bother. Just harm things without chool intro plays.
Trolling is a art.
When trolling is done right, no one can figure out if it's trolling or not. If people can figure it out, you're just a miserable failure.
It might be slow because it is the translation every time
>>4 It is the biggest online forum in the world
Literally everyone in Japan uses it
Not so popular since the datamining scandal, I think.
And there's other big ones in japanese too.
Free as in beer, that is.

What I'm explaining is that using a computer, for me, often means adapting programs to work in a manner I find more useful. I do not do this every day, or with every program I ever use, but I do it often enough that unmodifiable programs are of much less use to me. In other words, even if closed-source programs have more features, perform their jobs faster, or whatever, they are still not as "good"... for my purposes, that is.
I also find that many bugs are trivial to fix. In the case of a segfault, I get a core dump that usually leads me right to the problem. Many bugs are as simple as typos: "==" instead of "!=", for instance. It does take some time to familiarize myself with the code -- certainly, it's more involved than fixing a spelling mistake. But when a bug is preventing me from getting my work done, spending a half hour to an hour to fix it sure beats, um, sending a letter to the author asking to please fix it and give me a new version. Or rewriting the program from scratch.
I readily admit that I am not in the majority when it comes to my willingness and ability to get into code and fix it, although consider the fact that I have many friends and each of them has a programmer as a friend, and I may be more responsive to my friends' needs than some random software developer out there, and then you can see how a lot of people stand to benefit from a free software movement (even if its most hyped license is stupidly restrictive).
> In other words, even if closed-source programs have more features, perform their jobs faster, or whatever, they are still not as "good"... for my purposes, that is.
Even if you aren't modifying the OSS version? You can only modify a small fraction of the software on your system due to time.
Everyone uses programs to get work done, but it seems to me that often the closed version, even with the unfixable bugs, is far more useful than the OSS one. If someone wants to improve an OSS program, that's fine, but since I don't, I'll use the best tool available. Even if I wanted to, some of the OSS versions have a long way to go.
Having source is nice, but I don't think it should the defining factor, unless you're a corporation attempting to mitigate risk. The programs exist to do something after all.
I feel like you're not really listening.
Yes, use the "best" program in terms of speed, features, and user interface, if...
For you, clearly, all these bullet points ring true. For me, in general, none do, so for a program to be "good" for me -- which is a subjective thing -- the software's source must be available, letting me read and modify it.
> some of the OSS versions have a long way to go
I'm listening, but I don't understand.
If you have an unequalled piece of closed software, why use an open one? The argument seems to be that you'd like the source so you can alter the program or peruse its source, but you can't do that for most OSS programs you use. There just isn't enough time.
So how is it any different from using a closed program? You'll never see the source anyway, and in the meantime you use a lesser program. Why? Just because it's OSS?
> but you can't do that for most OSS programs
There lies your mistake. I can, and often do.
