Do you have a neat web community or chat group you'd like to invite people to? Maybe want to drop your messaging handle and strike up some conversations? Do it here.

Chat/community/personal ads are no longer allowed on the rest of the site, except maybe on /hell/.

Important Note: This doesn't mean that you can't talk about communities or chat groups. You could, for example, have a thread where you ask people about web communities they visit. You just can't open your thread with an advertisement.

One post per service please! Duplicate ads may be deleted. This especially includes discord links. To make a permanent discord link, click on instant invite, go to advanced settings, and change the expire time to never. Dead links suck. If your discord link expires, your post will be deleted and you may receive a short warning ban.

Life is good, I even met a snail today.
But there's always room for improvement.
I've realized all of my remaining vices/addictions/distractions are online, so I'm trying something. Using an outlet timer, my router will shut off at 7pm every evening.

This still gives me some time after work to check in on websites I like, download any new anime, and check in on any online friends. But it won't let me spend an entire evening listlessly browsing or socializing just for the sake of socializing.
I'm hoping this will lead to me living more of my ideal life, which is primarily offline and alone. I think it will also encourage me to use my time on the internet with more purpose and motivation, and less guilt.
I'll let you know how it goes.

I'd also like to ask, what does the internet mean to you? What role does it play in your daily life? What would you do if the internet was much more restricted? What do you think this snails name should be?

I've been gradually drifting away from the internet lately. I have a handful of small, niche, comfy, slow, and rather minimal communities (mostly plaintext) not unlike sushigirl which I browse during the day whenever I need a break, but because they are slow, there's nothing keeping me there for long, and I go back to my activities. For the most part I use the internet to look up stuff on wikipedia, wiktionary, etc, and to download books.
Even though I use the internet less and less, I am still very much a netizen and I like to be part of this digital culture of sorts, but I try to keep it healthy and not get dragged into the shitfest of the modern web. My tablet has the factory version of chrome which can't open cloudflare, recaptcha, etc.

The snail's name should be Endymion

I see the internet as a place to unleash my creativity (coding webpages) or as a place to have comfy discussions (places like sushichan) about the things we like, how our life is, and a place to try and make each other happy even when we're in a dark place in our lives, with fun discussions and memes.


File: 1715828859177.png (1.91 MB, 1920x1080, 92645237_p0.png)

To me, the internet is a medium through which a computer called client can ask a computer called server for something. There are decentralized distributed systems, but they are not all that popular.

To me, the internet is galleries of videos and pictures, repositories of software, music, articles and books. Stocks, tickets, rent, shopping, taxes and other administrative matters. Means to share media and talk. Discussions that would otherwise be hard, if not impossible, to hold. Worries and hopes, joy and pain that would otherwise be impossible to share, and find understanding. Although, impossible is too strong a word, probably.

> What role does it play in your daily life?

Vital. And mortal, if that makes any sense.

> What would you do if the internet was much more restricted?

Move to where it's not as restricted yet, so long as it is easy and not costly. Otherwise, bypass the restrictions, so long as it's technically possible, not too costly and not too risky. Otherwise, do nothing. I probably can't fight it, I barely have enough energy to keep myself up in a stable state. I can only archive what shards of the world that I'm used to remain.

> What do you think this snails name should be?

Fall. When I first looked at the photo, it seemed to me that it was taken during that time of the year, although it's spring outside.


Thanks for all the replies, they are very helpful.

Forcing myself offline a bit this week was great, with the right motivation behind it, it really did lead to me having better days. Before I had felt like I needed to be online all the time, but I really didn't. I don't think I need to adhere to the strict time cut off of the internet in general, but it's a good 'kick in the butt' option and was a great reminder that I'm not truly dependent on it.

I haven't seen Zukertortendymionfall since.

How do you sushi rolls go to sleep fast or at a reasonable rate? I've been trying to get a better sleep schedule, but a problem I've run into is that it can take me 1-2 hours to go to sleep. I know it sounds insane, but I can't fall asleep at a normal rate.

I've sleeping 20 minutes after getting off electronics. It helps, but it isn't enough. Any tips?

I have cues that help me.
I put my tech away, drink some calming jasmine tea and take a warm shower before bed. Always go to sleep and wake up around the same time. It’s simple, but sometimes hard to remain consistent.


That's probably the responsible way to do it. It's just hard not to start to rely on it when sleep is so critical to being functional. Just gotta be careful.
That sounds comfy.


I take valium and drink


I don't have anything specific I do to go to sleep. Not sure if I like staying up or if I just don't like going to sleep, but I'll tend to just keep going until my body is completely exhausted. Then I just need to put my phone down for 10 seconds and I'm out.


Can't sleep; raining too sound

(Didn't see a particular thread for this topic so making one) Anyone here married/have a family or otherwise older than the average imageboard user?

I hit 31 this year, have had a family for several years. Grew up and still enjoy chan culture yet somehow I've become trapped in suburban normie hell. It's a weird sort of loneliness. Anyone else know this feel?

Not that sushi roll, but good to see you still coming back after all these years OP, hope you and your family are well.


Not being 100% ready is one thing, but my fear is it's just too late for me, as a 31-year old with no gf, no kids, and not even any IRL friends anymore, to start from literally zero percent.

I decided the internet was my "home" in my mid-20's and just gave up pursuing any social life IRL. Now I'm starting to regret that choice but realistically, I need a good IRL friend group so that any potential gf doesn't think I'm a creep. So that's 1-2 years minimum to build up the group.

Once I have a gf, we ideally should date another 2-3 years minimum before marriage, with another 1-2 years to see how the marriage holds before having a child.

By that point, I'm anywhere from 35 to my early 40's, assuming everything goes to plan which they never do in the world of social relationships. So much needs to go right that's out of my control, which makes me wonder if it's worth trying, or I just accept my fate and be an elder internet goblin til I drop dead unloved in a state nursing home.


I'm 30 and basically in the same boat. Emotionally I haven't given up but "logistically" speaking marrying and having a family just seems impossibly out of reach at this point.


File: 1694282649103.jpg (161.83 KB, 848x1199, DdJKXKjWkAAEIIE.jpg)

I turned 30 recently myself. I'm not too bothered about being older than the average poster since it's an sushi rollymous forum, and I don't think I'll ever grow out of imageboards. I've taken longer breaks before and I've tried everything from traditional forums to discord, but I always feel like I've come home when I go on imageboards. I find it very difficult to talk to people, even online, so this is one of the few environments where I feel comfortable enough to express myself. The feeling many of us have that imageboards are in decline has actually been good for me, since it's spurred me on to be a more active poster, even making OC and organising community events for another board.

I can't relate to the being married part, but it is what it is.
