Japanese Net Culture (37)

1 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2007-02-24 23:26 ID:iZZmJbyy

So, we all know that 2channel is insanely popular in Japan. But my question is: just how big is it? Is it the only big site out there in Japan, or are there other popular ones? What other kind of sites do Japanese like to go to? And just how many Japanese internet users actually visit 2ch?

I'm very curious about this.

mixi is closer to facebook i'd say, in terms of customization. I think you can only upload about three thumbnails, and i never figured out the commenting system, although i sent messages often and got plenty of friend requests. i couldn't keep up so i just quit.

and many mixi users hate this tracker function.

As a fan of glossopoeia, I was surprised to find that Volapuk has been preserved on the Japanese internet.

37 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2021-01-23 15:18 ID:LQeKQaWu

The whole reason i started learning Japanese in the first place was because i liked the Japanese internet culture. I really like their internet they seem to have the mindset of if it isn’t broke don’t fix it. Their Yahoo looks exactly like Yahoo 2005 and GeoCities Japan lasted up until very recently in 2019 and a lot of the modern memes in Japan especially on Nico Nico look like they were pulled right out of the days of the old internet.

the nice thing about kareha is that it is simple and easy to set up, so if the mods on your favorite textboard consider your "free speech" as spam, then you can just start your own and build your own community.
but having guidelines around posting behavior is important unless you want your board to become shit. like ok, if you wanna be racist thats cool, just don't spam it. ruins the discussion.

21 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2020-05-15 03:51 ID:Heaven

P2P sharing program (7)

1 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-08-09 03:03 ID:QWipFq7b

well i like to use p2p sharing programs but theres one thing i would like to know and maybe someone has an anwser for that:

WHY THE FREAKING CRAP DO MOST DOWNLOADS STOP WHEN THEY ARE 99,999999% DONE?!?!?!?!
IS IT LIKE THE PEOPLE WHO SHARE ARE LIKE: "HAHAHA THIS MORON'S DOWNLOAD IS ALMOST DONE... ILL STOP SHARING JUST ON THE LAST MOMENT HAHAHAHAHA"

WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY

2 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-08-09 07:52 ID:hocXPQZK

because they know you'll, in turn, most likely stop sharing the moment you get 100%

3 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-08-10 12:50 ID:NRF00qos

With some apps (e.g. early bittorrent clients) the 99.9% problem happens because of this:

  1. Your client requests the final piece of a file from somebody.
  2. This somebody either logs off after this, or queues you way down in his download queue, or chokes you (on bittorrent) or just has a veeeery slow upload speed.
  3. Your client is stuck with downloading from the other client at a very low speed (Or is waiting in queue, or is retrying a dozen times before it gives up), and you are stuck with 99.9%.

Newer p2p clients often fix this problem by using something called "Endgame mode": When only one piece is left, this piece is requested from all other peers at once.

Yeah. That happened to me just 5 days ago. Stopped at 98% and I coudn't find the bastard since. How cruel!

6 Name: 404 - Name Not Found : 2006-11-21 13:42 ID:Heaven

This is probably because the Original seeder wants you to seed to everybody else because you have 99% of the file/s instead of you just closing the seed after you get 100%

i think there is an special options for this also when you create an torrent for seeding to only seed 99,9%.

But if youre downloading a movie that is 99,9% you can just close it and the movie will still work :P

Pros and cons of anonymity (23)

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.

14 Name: Bypel!y/zA3nqygs!!j/WxuqrX : 2015-12-09 21:55 ID:Heaven

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.

Decreasing usability on the web (31)

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.

UX is a cancer upon the world. I don't understand the point either, people in the mainsteam aren't gonna give that much more of a shit about the title being a different font and taking up half of the screen or the header resizing itself depending on the direction you scroll, so why not just give the actual content and keep things simple? I mean more often then not these sites are too ambitious in their UX and it becomes actively infuriating to work with. Wouldn't being a simple and direct news service be better at making viewers subconsciously prefer one site over the other? Isn't that why Yahoo Japan still holds its classic design?
