That is an excellent rule to follow, sushi.
I used to go on /what/ a lot but I'm finding myself using it less and less due to poor management by the Admin..like jizz in the drain I guess.
I might check out tohno-chan since it's been so long, my old post might even still be there.>>1207>wakachan
Oh man, it still hurts..that was my first home I had after leaving 4/jp/. Why are we here? Just to suffer?
This one is soooo comfy and cool
>>1352>I'm curious about the purported quality of 8/a
It depends on what you want in an anime board. The mod is an absolute Hotpocket who is seemingly obsessed with deliting all shitposting he can find. He runs a modbot that will ban you if you use any word that he has listed in the sticky. It stays on-topic but it depends on your opiions on funposting.
>>1142>Everything is absolutely awful apart for the /a/ board on 8chan.
How? I like it.>>1183
I use a website blocker called Leechblock because of my self-control problems. It's pretty effective though the ultimate goal is too not use it and train the force of will necessary too not use websites that waste time when I'm actually doing something important. >>1150>Watching 8ch go from a unified community to slowly fragmenting itself over politics
I didn't see that at all. Outside of /leftypol/ the entire website is essentially /pol/ property.>It's really become a cesspit.
Do what you need too do for your soul, sushi roll.>>1372
Use a website blocker(see above)/"forget about this site".>>1378>8ch's holier-than-thou attitude
I just found one: http://fchan.us/
I'm unsure about it' quality though.>>1384>but ultimately most of the changes were to 4chan itself, particularly the user interface>Auto-noko and auto-updating, quick reply and backlinking all added an immediacy to 4chan that wasn't there before. Things became more like a chatroom simply because the new format of 4chan supported that style of content better
Interesting, it's like how Reddit's bumping system created a system for the lowest common denominator. Or How Tumblr's tagging system allowed one too see only the content they want too see creating a near-perfect echo-chamber.>>1523>8 is cancer
>>1623>I'm surprised nobody has mentioned uboachan.
There's literally a link too it at the bottom of this thread. I think this site shares a admin with it.> I don't even bother trying to argue with anyone on 8chan, they feed off that shit. People say 8chan is dying but there sure is a lot of activity on there. It's a cesspit but at least there's stuff to talk about on there.
How is it a cesspit? Elaborate.
Well it's clear that 8chan attracts the people who got kicked off 4chan. Granted, some people get unfairly banned from 4chan, but 8chan also attracts the people who got banned from 4chan for good reasons. The majority of threads on 8chan eventually devolve into people arguing with each other. Hey, I have no problem with that, people can say what they want, but it does get tiresome.
If you are alt-right or a neo-nazi or whatever, I'm sure 8chan is a wonderful place. I am not one of those people though, so the constant talk of conspiracy and hatred drains me. But at the same time, I have some problems with how 4chan is run, and I identify strongly with the idea of just letting people say what they want, no matter how offensive, so I endure 8chan.
4chan might be the worst community in existence, because I know of no other community where the staff have the objective of making the place worse. On 4chan they aren't merely apathetic, they actively want to ruin the site. They are in fact so rotten that they deserve to die for it. It really is that bad. 8chan is not far behind.
still doing it. bit ridiculous how much i'm getting into it.>>1345>crystalcafe
I find myself reading posts here a lot, same with uboachan.
I always hoped that the 8ch model might spring up something I could get into but it hasn't (yet!)
I spend most of my "posting" time on twitter. It's a broken ass cesspit but it's been good for finding people who share my interests.
>>1631>I spend most of my "posting" time on twitter. It's a broken ass cesspit but it's been good for finding people who share my interests.
I always wondered why hate against twitter is so popular. I feel you kinda have to go out of your way to leave the comfort zone of your timeline to see samurai platter and alt-right crap. When I use twitter, I see nothing but dorky complaining about grumpy bus drivers and the lame jokes that I find funny. Met a lot of normies too that insists that Twitter is nothing but porn. I think Twitter is what you make of it. I only stalk the people I like.
yeah its literally the people you follow thats showing you "alt-right crap" or all that porn, follow some different people
I want to again stress that 4chan's staff should all be murdered. They are extremely bad people whose very existence is a stain on this planet. moot's greatest mistake was not shutting down the site when he still could.
They weren't always evil but reining in the Asshole of the Internet will change a person. Don't forget that the userbase is made up of Nazis, pedophiles, feds, other assorted fetishists, shills, zoosadists, edgelords, stalkers, samurai platters, etc.
Deal with folks like that literally every day and your heart will blacken up, too. It doesn't excuse the fucked up botnet-y shit they do but we need to remind ourselves of how things like this happen.
Yay I found a new catplanet but damn now I'm hungry.
This post is old as hell but recently there was some serious furry drama about some idiot who talked about fucking dead puppies. And because this furry was also a Youtuber, all of the drama channels as well as regular furry channels hopped on that really fast. And I think these more unhinged people are part of why people hate furries. Not saying it's right because that's painting people with too broad a brush but that seems to be a big driving force behind the hate.
I'm with you, though, it's a bit irrational especially when almost every other adult online has some weird fetish or interest of some sort. But I also think it's just part of that imageboard culture of hating everything.>>1698
It would be interesting to see how different people would be if they never got on imageboards like 4chan.
4chan is over
lol this. A botnet ghost of its former self.
Hot take: it's not just 4chan, but western society as a whole. Lots of issues now, like increased income inequality, mass immigration and culture wars, social media astroturfing, increased political tension, political correctness and the backlash against it, etc.
You can blame 4chan, but I see 4chan's declining state as merely a symptom of greater societal issues. If people were happier, they wouldn't be so dark online. But 4chan, Twitter, Facebook, etc. are all getting more negative as time goes on. It's just the modern political and social climate.
This man speaks sense.
4chan is a sort of canary in the coal mine, what becomes significant in size there can be seen to become more prevalent in the real world over the coming years. I imagine government agencies are all over the thing trying to spot trends in behaviour. Almost definitely trying to actively influence it too.
Good. That site is poison.
>>852>the scientific method
The old times are gone and you'll never get them back. You need to accept this to properly move on, friend.
I like 4taba, 3chan, and am actively looking at other sites to see what is good.
I got worried today when I checked on 4taba, it seems to be down and the contact page isn't archived so I can't ask their admins how long the downtime will be.>>1378
for some reason furries avoid imageboards and prefer to shelter themselves in telegrams and discords. u-18 and trash are the closest you'll get and even then trash is only good for a few generals that are slowly poisoning themselves. lulz would be great if not for the more unsavory users
Would also recommend 8chan's /artass/ for art asset dump.
Any more great art boards?
I only frequent /loomis/ and halfchan's /ic/
I used to like crystal cafe but I'm trans and, even though I personally would never make a point of mentioning it, whenever other transgirls would mention it (which is admittedly stupid on a girls only site) and get shat on or banned it started to make me feel unwelcome.
It's a shame because there's a lot of good conversation there.
>>1812>I personally would never make a point of mentioning it
[on that site]
Wizardchan went down in 2014, it was replaced by Wizchan. Its basically a den for incels now, I can't use it now.
Goodbye MagicChan, thanks for the fun times.
You probably already know this but 8ch.net/tower/ is the replacement for MagicChan and there's also lizchan.org which carries the same vibe
/tower/ is great but I don't really like lizchan. It's too like /r9k/ for me personally.
Do you know the password for whisper?
TC for hikki talk, Samachan for anime, and here for general.
I like TC probably the most of the three, though the community can occasionally put me in a bad mood. Samachan seems to be pretty good, the discussion and posts are entertaining for an anime imageboard, not sure how I feel about a female admin though.
Sushi is great and I've been using it since itamae was the admin, but I rarely post.
What's TC? Tinychan?
Went to the first and the fact that it had a whole board dedicated to "waifus" was off-putting and the first image I saw on the second was an amputated woman being raped, plus this user has a problem with a woman being an admin. Don't think either of these are for me.
Their anime board is anti-anime. That's really all you need to know about them.
Women are more likely to let emotion govern their actions so I can unddrstand their hesitation.
Even assuming that was true, haven't we seen how well robot mods work?
Robot mods have a bad reputation for holding power just as much as female mods.
Finding good mods is tricky business. The mod they mentioned has always seemed pretty good, albeit somewhat light handed. I'm just saying their opinion isn't madness.>>1873
It's just the way things are. We should try to evaluate a mod individualy but people naturally revert to past experience.
No, that is not just the way things are. That's you trying to prop up your preconceived notions with further preconceived notions of what the general population thinks.
Beyond that, you shouldn't be attempting to justify your behavior by comparing it to popular opinion, much less your uninformed idea of popular opinion. Even if everyone in the world was stacking the same totems about women as you, they'd still be just as wrong.
You're talking as though everything you don't like the notion of is just a rampant misunderstanding. Sometimes it's nature and you'll be faced with it every time you leave the door. I get the impression that you're somehow invested on this matter anyway so I don't have any interest in you getting all mad at me over it.
