thatdog seems to have deleted his post explaining the shutdown in detail. Basically posting was disabled sometime in April for technical reasons and I guess he decided that it wasn't worth maintaining anymore because of how few users there were. The site was officially closed on July 1st. On July 4th he posted a link to an 8ch.pl version of /rail/.

>“Besides being a time capsule I don’t really see a reason for it to continue to exist... It seems like the internet has moved on,” he pauses, sounding overwhelmed. “And I’ve moved on too. I don’t have much interest in the site beyond it being good memories.”

Those words hit home for so many things online, don't they. I am positively shocked it's still around even now. It is firmly part of the net that is at least a decade past it's usefulness.

I really feel it. Those days have finally come to pass. All those things are merely a part of the past now.

130 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2016-09-15 07:08 ID:Kr1aK6Ki

I also received word a few days ago that idlechan.net, the project to continue the legacy of the iichan/Wakachan network, is shutting down, effectively ending it's 12 year run. The longest lived 4chan alternative gone. Now that one makes me feel old.

Sad but not surprising. YTMND was my first exposure to bad repetitive internet humor, I'll be nostalgic when it's gone. I understand why he might shut it down though.

It seems like all the old communities are dying and nothing similar is replacing them. Maybe they were tied to a generation that has become adult and for the most part has no time or interest anymore to keep participating. I still miss spending time warmly and having creative fun in /jp/ and /prog/.

I'm an oldfag and I'm still here, I just don't have as much free time as I used to. I think one problem with the old text board community is fragmentation. There are dozens of sites now, and I don't feel like keeping up with all of them.

168 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2018-09-05 10:57 ID:naWiCztZ

Most of the text-only fun happens on gophernet and even IRC these days. Sad!

169 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2018-09-05 19:12 ID:rYSR53dE

No. It was such a stupid idea using gdrive for that list. I don't even know if that account still exists or not, because I refuse to touch a Google link. I should have uploaded to notabug, some kind of wiki, neocities, or even just an ipfs hash, for God's sake. There were so many things about that list that were so dumb. But I was a young and stupid teenager. Everyone rightfully hates me. And I uploaded that pastebin list anonymously, so I can't alter it, either.

Although I think I do have the org-mode file for the list on some hdd somewhere, it's not like I've ever written anything worth reading. The whole idea was honestly stupid. Furthermore, like >>168 said, most of the interaction only ever happens on IRC or YouTube or some kind of fotm proprietary platform, anyway, so it doesn't even matter. Idlechan is dead, all my favorite boards are dead, and 4chan uses Google's reCaptcha, so I can't even use it–not that I would want to, even through a hundred lines of regexp filters.

170 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2018-10-04 05:28 ID:H5cLeI1/

The vanishing point was over ten years ago. It's completely useless now, nobody even knows what you're talking about.

Reminder that 30 is objectively too old to be posting on chans. I'm feeling that fo' real.

172 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2018-10-05 09:26 ID:O4m+prKi


Creamy, if you wish, I can fetch your list from Gdocs and upload it for you elsewhere.

Smaller imageboards will probably never relive their glory days of 10 years ago. The fascination and nostalgia we have towards participating in and exploring these communities are probably shared with people who used to frequent BBSes long ago...

173 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2018-10-06 09:58 ID:9W4Dz4UK

Oh kinda interesting to see this hasn't changed. There's been a lot of new chans and stuff that popped up and a lot that have died so I came to see if he was still updating the list since the Google Docs one I have hasn't been updated for the past two years. Oh well, maybe it's for the best it's kinda pointless after all I guess.

174 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2018-10-23 23:37 ID:9RUA6+If

4ch/a/ isn't THAT bad, tohno-chan and samachan are okayish, but I'm sure you know that already. Honestly, the quality that /a/ can maintain with the volume of posts it receives is kind of impressive, if only because it doesn't discriminate against lolicon (as much) and other hardcore fan stuff. What you might be looking for is one of those kitschy early web 2.0 forums, like AnimeSuki (yes, I know) or the like. https://ralee.org/ is also interesting.

175 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2018-10-23 23:42 ID:9RUA6+If

Also futaba isn't that good either, learning another language (not polish) might be the right idea but from skimming it just seems like a lot of the issues 4chan has but in Japanese. I'd recommend 5ch or any of the BBSes for cities. You will also run into a lot of normalfags on Japanese imageboards, more so than American/European ones.

Ahahaha, no.
You should stop talking about things that you don't know.
May, the main board, is among the best places on the internet for any kind of manga and Japanimation discussion.
5ch and 2ch.sc are also good but for different reason, mostly related to the nature of textboards.

I agree. Though it can be vaguely entertaining to read incorrect interpretations. You ask yourself how on Earth he could have gotten that impression. I'll not speculate here.

183 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2019-01-01 04:20 ID:LOjNN4MK

AFAIK: Hiroyuki had a falling out with the American guy, Jim Hawkins, that he was paying to actually run the site. Jim continued to run the site for a while since he owned the server and domain name and was also located in the USA so Hiroyuki couldn't do diddly squat. Then Jim sold the site to some Japanese corporation. Then the Japanese corporation changed the site name because they thought it would make it harder for Hiroyuki to sue them or something.

Meanwhile Hiroyuki rage-created 2ch.sc which is a 2/5ch scraper and then bought 4chan and became moot 2.0.

184 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2019-01-01 14:10 ID:6m8Vd2vG

So Hiro actually lost 2/5ch? Sounds like theft.

185 Name: Anonymous Addict : 2019-01-01 23:55 ID:LOjNN4MK

He has argued that, yes. Unfortunately for him, he operated them in a way that deliberately set up a legal minefield to guard against butthurt Japanese people suing over libel/warez/etc, and then found himself on the wrong side of that minefield.

Someone on /qa/ found this website. It's an English speaking anonymous imageboard and seems to be older than world2ch's IB.
Does anyone have any info on this site? It could be a big discovery.
Also, 0037 would be pissed about this. He so prided himself on w2ch having had the first English imageboard.

On an unrelated note, does has anyone here heard of B3ta? It's an English imageboard from 2001, but it isn't anonymous and it has no relation to Japanese BBS's as far as I know.
