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.

Eternal September (12)

1 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2016-05-25 03:32 ID:i8SteKU4

On The Elitist Superstructure of DQN an organization and board that does not exist, the day counter increases without bound while the year remains 1993 and the month indicates September. This is in remembrance of the culture shock that happened in 1993 when the popular Internet service provider AOL offered access to Usenet to its customers. This important date will forever mark one of the steps of the Internet integrating into the lives of the general public.

Before 1993, Usenet was limited to mostly University use. Only staff, students and possibly other specially privileged people had access to any newsgroups or networks. The influx of users may have led to the decline of any existing culture; Before 1993, new people only came every September due to the new freshman students in the fall and they learned the culture or left by the end of the month, give or take. With Usenet access to all of the AOL customers there was a constant influx of new users, overwhelming any safeguards that were in place to handle new users. As the new people never quieted down September 1993 was dubbed Eternal September.

In this thread post
  • Your own experiences relating to this event
  • Resources about learning what Usenet, the Internet or other forms of social media were like before Eternal September overwhelmed and changed any existing culture.

Well I'm not from 8chan if that's what you're accusing me of. I did search here for a thread about Eternal September and didn't find one.

I guess I haven't been keeping tabs with this place as much as I should. Why don't you write about the Eternal September that happened here ITT, so it can be documented more.

Looking over the threads, for this board at least, I can't really see anything that screams 8chan -- care to point out a few examples?

You're right that I lack self-awareness, but that's because I'm ignorant.

I guess the idea is interesting insofar as how a close-knit brotherhood experienced the mass serialization of its community. To me it seems kind of elitist. They lamented the collapse of their ivory tower; now every Joe Sixpack with a computer room and a floppy drive could speak their minds for six hundred free minutes, too.

I'm just about finished with the book "Where Wizards Stay Up Late". It's a biopic about the people who created ARPAnet and addresses some of the conflicts that you're talking about. I think you'd rather enjoy it.

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

Windows. I spent 3-5 years or so using Linux as my exclusive OS, but it's too much of a pain in the ass to justify using it as an exclusive desktop OS. When I bought a new laptop and upgraded to win10 I just never got around to partitioning and installing a *nix distro, and I realized I don't really need it. The only program that I still need and use on a regular basis is emacs now, and that runs on windows too.

Win10 seems to have a smaller footprint than 8 and it's not too bad once you discover the Win+X shortcut. My only major complaint is how horribly slow the start menu search is - it seems to take forever to launch anything compared to Win7 or Win8.1.

Alienation [I mean come on, it's 2016!] (12)

1 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2016-03-29 13:28 ID:7CMTnCYi

Does anyone else feel alienated by the modern web?

The rate at which sites like Reddit and Tumblr have supplanted traditional forums, at which Twitter has grown and the fashion in which Facebook still exists as a de-facto standard feels incredibly disorienting to me as someone who hasn't used a pseudonym in years or real name outside of online purchases. Anonymous imageboards and textboards are still around, so I have some grounding - but even then a lot of the discussion (at least on imageboards) is strongly linked to things happening elsewhere on the web and there's a definite culture shift on imageboards as a result of that.

As someone with an interest in net culture (or at least historical net culture in light of this post) it feels like things have rapidly been swamped and I now understand very little of the culture of the modern web. This isn't helped by the fact that it's such a fluid thing, making it hard to give specific years that can be identified and classified. 2009 felt more natural than 2011, which felt more natural than 2014, which felt more natural than 2015 or early 16, and so on indefinitely.

It's perhaps stretching the word culture, as there's a feeling of disorientation far beyond culture shift, but it seems the closest to an accurate term.

In today's world, the internet has only become an extension of real life. People are the same whether online or not. There is a huge lack of true anonymity now and it shows how bland things can be without it. The internet is now a tool for business, education, and narcissism, and not the pure, golden paradise of refuge it once was for us.

4 Name: 406 - Not Acceptable : 2016-04-10 03:20 ID:Akj5PdLc

Everywhere you go it's Rate, Like, Comment, subscribe. There are social media buttons with tracking cookies on every fucking webpage. Then there's the you need such and such account to identify yourself on our website gimmick, which-- if you proceed with logging in-- will automatically subscribe you to about ten different advertising 'mailing lists' (even though it's not a mailing list in the traditional sense). It will also immediately tie your IP address and cookies to your identity and update the central AI system as to your interests.

There's no fucking hiding from this shit, and plebs are pushing for this shit because they have no sense of privacy or security.

Wake up, people. You're dragging us down with you!

5 Name: Netizen : 2016-04-13 02:58 ID:RBQETV+T

I believe that within the next couple of decades a new "refuge" has to appear. First, before the internet, it was phreaking and the BBS world. Only a group of people could access it. Then the internet.. Only nerds used it.
Now "normal people" can use the internet because there are no barriers to entry; they just grab an electronic appliance and touch the screen. Some kind of barrier has to appear again. Something that excludes the unworthy from the safe playground; maybe something to do with cryptography or just a new virtual dimension we can't imagine yet.
In time, it will open to the general public too, but for a while the magic will exist again. Maybe some of us will be left out though, if the barriers are strict enough.

The best thing I can recommend are obscure image/textboards and IRC like >>8 said.
Even then, it's full of plebs.
I also still lurk Usenet newsgroups because since they've fallen into obscurity the eternal September seems to have ended, and the only users are the ones who have been around since the beginning.

10 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2016-05-20 22:37 ID:Heaven

No not really. I don't like using 4chan for much outside of porn boards anymore because it's gotten so awful on the larger boards, but that's something that has been said since forever.

I don't mind large websites like reddit, tumblr, etc because they often have new queues or something similar and it's fun to dig through all the stuff that gets submitted. And they're convenient for seeing things you like quickly.

As for solutions I am not sure lurking dead chans and other places would bring much enjoyment. I think it's better to learn how to adapt to new things, while ignoring the stupid community parts.

> 2009 felt more natural than 2011, which felt more natural than 2014, which felt more natural than 2015 or early 16, and so on indefinitely.

I can definitely get behind this sentiment. Everything feels so incredibly unnatural and unreal now - the fake outrage over every non-issue, the insane amount of profiteering off of victimhood, the layers of snark and irony on top of every opinion, the short attention span of internet users, the constant clickbait at every turn, the narcissism, the rush to be offended... They've become so bothersome to deal with that I can't participate in mainstream, web 2.0 sites anymore, not even YouTube. Everywhere you turn, everything's homogenized. There is hardly any uniqueness to be found anymore and thank god chan culture is still here (kinda) or I'd have no real reason to keep using the internet.

I want things to return to sanity again.

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.

Decreasing usability on the web (5)

1 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2016-04-21 07:22 ID:ReD2ZvAk

It seems like the web is getting harder to use.

Or maybe I'm just getting older.

  • I was using a search bar on a website. It had no "search" button ... it was just a text field. I tried hitting enter and nothing happened. The screen didn't change or anything. I finally reloaded and tried again and THEN my search actually returned results.
  • I was tabbing through a webpage, but the links were never highlighted or outlined to let me know that I was tabbed on them.
  • Webpages have become harder to read! I'm serious. There is something wrong with the new age typefaces. It's like someone decided to make a new font that inherited 3 X chromosomes so every character could be big, but skinny.

I am not adapting well to the future at all.

2 Name: 409 - Conflict : 2016-04-27 11:19 ID:4YpaLt8l

I think you're forgetting some things:

There's the 'flat design' bullshit that people think 'is artistic':

  • links and regular text only have a slight hue and saturation difference that's hard to spot, there's no underline on links like what we've been doing since the fucking early 90s
  • buttons are just icons now
  • everything on one huge-ass page that you have to scroll down or if you click a link? The page will smoothly scroll you down, which I bet works great on low-powered mobile devices, like my ARM laptop that I've got.
  • dark patterns about everywhere

Worst of all? This shit is starting to infect traditional desktop computing too.

Welcome to the aneurysm that is the Google design guidelines.

>Surfaces and edges of the material provide visual cues that are grounded in reality. The use of familiar tactile attributes helps users quickly understand affordances. Yet the flexibility of the material creates new affordances that supercede those in the physical world, without breaking the rules of physics.

What a breath of fresh air. They want the designs to seem as realistic as interactions we have in the real world.

Let's try it out:

https://material-design.storage.googleapis.com/publish/material_v_4/material_ext_publish/0Bx4BSt6jniD7WlduMk1kbTRzQWc/components_buttons_main15.png

That's right. According to google (and reality, apparently), pressing a button is actually the opposite. You're really pulling the button toward yourself!

The biggest palpable decline in the past half-decade has been the fall of the search engine and SEO wars. The Internet has become difficult to navigate and less usable largely because it's impossible to find something you're not looking for by name anymore.

it's actually difficult for me to imagine shii having any kind of sexual experience.

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.

Newfags, Tripfags, and Imageboard Conformity (20)

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?

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?

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.

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.

17 Post deleted.

I don't mind conformity so long as it's not conforming in opinions or interests

19 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2016-01-04 20:36 ID:FD0zrgnV

Why shouldn't people use names/tripcodes?

Anonymity != quality, identity != trash posting

Just because you can be Anonymous, doesn't mean you should
