I just wanted to post some stuff I've been thinking about chans. There's no special point I'm arguing.

As far as I am concerned 8ch has been taken over and destroyed. I was just looking at some screenshots of some older 8ch stuff today: that whole story about the bank robber, people having fun with copypaste before racequeen, all the fan art about nomads travelling from 4chan and rebuilding. It was nice to remember back and think about what a good run we had. I feel like none of the new alt-alt chans have any hope of being close to what 8ch was and that's a shame.
More than that thought I'm starting to feel like the imageboard medium is a dead end. I asked myself what do you even get, today, out of an imageboard that you don't on reddit or something else. They're heavily censored these days, I find that the mods on these create-your-own-board sites really abuse their positions and remove far more than they should.
Maybe it's wrong to focus so much on the free speech aspect, the main purpose of chans is to free people by removing the assocation of their post from their identity. That is the key. What do we gain from that? Frustratingly a great deal of noise and incessant meme posts is one of the results. It's too easy to drag down the level of discussion.
The cultures are often based on paranoia and distrust to the point that spending too much time on a chan can leave you unable to interact and integrate with non-chan people. Not to ignore the enojable side of it: all kinds of chaos, fun. a place to learn about extremes thaht you would never normally see (gore, fetishes, horror stories, …). but I see the creation of OC drying up. Memes used to churn around pretty regularly, but now how long as pepe the frog been going? Also the weird meta-awareness and understanding of memes and propogation has created a weird new irony to everything. The innocent playfulness has been lost.
What would you like to see in the future? How can be change the medium itself to enable better more creative communities to form?

Some interesting articles on chan culture (got any more to share?)

I completely agree with you. Now, having read everything previously stated in this thread, as well as just experiencing things myself for as many years as I have. I must admit, it's just getting exhausting and confusing to the point where I almost don't want to think about it anymore.

There was a time I believe, where chans felt comfy and fun and shit flourished. Now I feel like every big chan is a complete piece of shit in every way and is depressingly shitty, while all of the small chans feel like they're missing something really important and I can't put my finger on it.






But SJWs shilling on the site isn't against the rules? That's not political? Fuck off.

"Bogeyman" (or a variant) is an absolute dead giveaway. SJW shills always use that word and always insist that SJWs don't really exist, which by now is as believable as claiming Trump doesn't exist.

Anyway I can see that this site is a lost cause so I will not be coming back. Have fun with your SJW circle jerk.


I refer you again to my reply, earlier.
Not everyone who pretends theres no problem with SJW is one of them. Loads, in fact, are not really, unless you're a /pol/ack afraid of any outsiders who'd call anyone who associates with or aligns themselves with people who are one themselves regardless of what they're actually willing to do, say, and believe, or anyone who just is a leftist of any kind ever.
Plenty of SJWs will, of course, also pretend there is no problem, because pretending there isn't a problem when it undermines their narrative is one of their specialties. See pretending there are no problems with backwards Islamic orthodoxy or popular Islamic extremism.
Pretending there is no problem where there is one is bad, but its done for differing reasons by different people. Some people just dont want to have to feel like they're orienting themselves in opposition to what they've been taught is the "good guys." People averse to conflict in this manner are incapable of actually being SJWs, because that would involve being very proactive about being a loud, aggressive, imposing asshole.
I'm probably just some shill from tumblr, or one of anitas COINTEL agents or something though. With us or against us, with us or with them and so against us.
