[RIP] Dead text/imageboards [IN MEMORIAM] (14)

1 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2015-11-10 01:03 ID:VyUpgVmN

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.

>Post Office
>SAoVQ
>Cyberia
>Eastern Calculus

rest in peace.

Avery Morrow is a disqusting homosexual neofacist pedophile who needs to die. We must find Avery Morrow and brutally murder him. Avery Morrow's long flacid penis curves around into his anus and through his mouth into 0037's butt. He violently thrusts the flacid object through his mouth and into the ass of 0037. 0037 moans with joy. Avery Morrow has 10000 orgasms with force, filling 0037's colon with 2000 gallons of semen and dried smegma.The force of the orgasms makes Avery Morrow's penis turn erect, fracturing due to it's impossible curves. The force of his exploding penis blasts him backwards 10000000000km into the past. Suddenly 1000000000000000000000 shotas fall from the sky and he can't resists and fill them with cum and is assraped 10000 times in prison. His anus prolapses forever and he is always leaking shit. He was a basqu3 niggir the whole time the end.

I made a post a few weeks back on a text or image board, but I can't remember which one it was. If it was one of the small, faster moving imageboards it might already be gone too. It's really bothering me, because I was talking to somebody!

There are lots of Japanese sites that are pretty nice. I wish we focused on content like them. Even this old place is getting a bit stale compared to how it was about a year or two ago. I feel that the act of searching for and finding new sites on the world wide web that are worth while to go to is gradually coming to an end.

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

>>5
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: http://maguro.2ch.net/vip8/
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.

You can look at a demo installation here:
http://www.scriptarchive.com/wwwboard.html

23 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2016-01-15 19:10 ID:bDJgOM42

Half of the boards there are dead.

24 Name: tokiko!5yOaZrqx.c : 2016-01-24 12:14 ID:JXLnXLGs

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.

25 Name: sage : 2016-01-25 22:07 ID:Y8LusJZS

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?

Slackware~ Are are, the best OS~

>>87
Download the .iso, and then burn that to a USB, use Rufus if you're on windows. Then shut off your computer and boot into BIOS (mash escape or an F button). Figure out how to boot to USB, we can't help you here. Then try to boot into "live CD" mode from that, to demo it out.

Or you can download VirtualBox or some other OS virtualizer, then run it in a VM on your normal OS. This is easy but makes it a bit slower.

The Slackbook is a great resource: read it here: http://slackbook.org/html/book.html

Newfags, Tripfags, and Imageboard Conformity (20)

1 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-11-10 17:31 ID:gRwhjBlr

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:

http://img.gurochan.net/f/wakaba.html

and here:

http://img.gurochan.net/f/wakaba.html

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?

11 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-11-14 05:48 ID:xz2v1jZ3

This same thing happened on Gurochan two years ago, it's in the DQN archives. It ended with the admin stepping in and telling people to stop be all uppity about their names

12 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-11-14 05:54 ID:DfK531GE

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?

13 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-11-15 08:11 ID:q8bmWOxJ

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?

14 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-11-15 08:20 ID:q8bmWOxJ

>>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.

15 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-11-15 08:22 ID:DfK531GE

>>13
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.

16 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-11-15 10:33 ID:q8bmWOxJ

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.

You can sage if you think your comment is off-topic, or if you don't feel the thread needs to be bumped to the top of the board. Or just out of convention.

12 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2016-01-04 20:31 ID:pL8/BsLA

How to succeed with a textboard:

  • Find communities to target for new user growth / spam the link to your friends
  • Get actual discussions going; find topics
  • Have as few boards as possible. A bunch of boards = a bunch of dead boards
  • ?????
  • Don't profit

Pros and cons of anonymity (19)

1 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2015-09-20 15:31 ID:zkNVEXtT

Advantages:
* 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
Disadvantages:
* 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.

Considering these disadvantages I have decided err on the side of nature (identity is more natural than anonymity) and make more of an identity for myself.

15 Name: Bypel !y/zA3nqygs!!j/WxuqrX : 2015-12-10 16:43 ID:zkNVEXtT

Advantage:

  • People spying on you can only identify you for the posts they have seen you write.

16 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2015-12-10 19:08 ID:oP6ua1lX

Disadvantage:

  • People still treat anonymous boards the same way they do regular forums and try to gain seniority by arguing about who's been there longer, even though there is no way to actually tell and it doesn't matter.

17 Name: Bypel !y/zA3nqygs!!j/WxuqrX : 2015-12-11 20:26 ID:zkNVEXtT

One advantage of identity is that reputations could be damaged by committing logical fallacies or using dishonest arguments so there's an incentive to think about what you say and be honest. On the other hand though in some communities reputation could be damaged by simply expressing certain beliefs.
