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.

Old link died, here is the new one https://discord.gg/nAtBT3G9HK

Yes! We are still running and active after two years!

Cafe Alpha is a yokohama kaidashi kikou (ykk) themed server which encourages positivity, clean growth and self-development of all of its patrons. We encourage positive pursuits, such as exercise, art and spiritual self-development. We are NOT a casual shitposting/meme server and our goal is to create a small, tight-knit community of friends all helping each other to be their best self. We keep things wholesome, friendly and positive!

We are an 18+ server, NOT because we are a NSFW server but because we want mature and responsible patrons.

Are there any permissive imageboards that allow banter and lewds, but just straight up bans 4 memes?
I'm aware that it's more of a symptom of not respecting the imageboard's culture rather than the memes themselves directly causing problems, but it still ends up lowering the post quality even if indirectly.
And for reference I'd classify kc's /int/ as too shitposty.

this server was made as an art experiment in a drug-fuelled haze by a tranny and hrt twink. most of the userbase consists of spiritualists & gnostics with no single unifying trait except server culture.

I haven't been able to join with a community and have fun since I left all the places I used from 1997-2009. I took a couple of years off. When I came back everything had changed including the people and culture. I try to avoid discord whenever possible. But loneliness drove me to try it. All I saw was people half my age spamming emotes. No one wanted to have a conversation. I find the same thing everywhere else I go: reddit clones and imageboards all seem to be filled with phone posters repeating the same tired memes and puns everyday. Every place that isn't is so slow. Every place with namefags is filled with people that want to dox you and bully.

Is there anywhere that's comfy anymore and filled with people that can discuss hobbies without taking it serious? I'm so lonely. I have been for a long time. I don't even talk to people IRL anymore all my friends are dead, married with children, or working so many hours they don't have any time for fun.

I just want to chill with online friends like I used to. I'm sick of every place comfy place being filled with social justice politics and people that only talk about their sexual identity. It's like there aren't even real people on the internet anymore. It's just an endless sea of drones that want to talk about their gentiles and bully people while claiming everyone is bullying them. I can not related to these zoomers at all. I don't care about their memes or their e-celebs.

I feel like I wasted my life building websites in the late 90s/early 2000s. All of them are dead now. No one uses forums anymore. I can't stand centralized social media. IRC somehow managed to get even worse than it used to be. Even the fucking warez is locked up behind some upvote system now. Do these kids really interview with NEETs and pay for VPNs just to download anime these days?

I can't tell if I'm just jaded or the entire world went to shit. I just wanted a loyal waifu and kids man. I don't think it's ever going to happen. I think I'm going to die alone. I doubt anyone will even remember me when I do. It's like the world moved on and I didn't back when smart phones first released. Every hobby I had has been invaded by posers that don't even participate in it. They just shit the place up and post stale memes.

Anyone else feel the same way?

I feel much the same as you

At the very least I think there are many smaller imageboards like this one that are (mostly) free from the cancers you speak of. I can't offer you your dream community, and I especially can't help with the wife and kids part because I'm struggling with that myself too. But I can at least hope you'll take comfort knowing you're among some amount of like-minded people here.

>At the very least I think there are many smaller imageboards like this one that are (mostly) free from the cancers you speak of.
I try to seek them out but in the last few years I've run into these problems:
>They're good for a few months but then attract attention from the usual suspects and get attacked
>this leads to the site getting deplatformed or all the good users leaving because of things like pizza spam

I even ran one myself for awhile that lasted about 3 months before it went through this. I'll spare all the details but suffice to say it was pretty disheartening to go through. I know I was fair in administration. I just couldn't find good help and the constant attacks were simply more than I could control.

There are smaller ones that don't have this problem but it's mostly because they are for discussion of topics that don't draw these types of attacks. In the last 2-5 years certain topics have simply become impossible to discuss on the web without these organized attacks from well funded bad actors. I was even harassed IRL state actor over what some users posted even though it was legal and I followed every law I was required to (I consulted with a lawyer before I opened the website).

>I especially can't help with the wife and kids part because I'm struggling with that myself too.


I was thinking about this today and I realized something. Since I don't
>use cell phones
>prefer text/image content to videos
I miss out on just about everything that's happening on the web now. I am locked out of all big tech social media by default. Everything requires a phone number for 2FA and activation codes now. This is annoying because even some hardware I've been gifted can't be used unless I borrow someone's cell phone (AppleTV I got for xmas). I can't use instagram, twitter, discord, google services like youtube, and most of the others. Some might allow me to lurk without it for some "approved" content. But I'm excluded from contributing. Even an application like discord has this problem because all it takes is one bad mod to "lock" a chat room to make it useless to me. As I found out recently when I went searching for some info about a video game I was playing. All the information that used to be contained on a wiki+forum is now in some chat room that won't give me access because I don't have an account that's verified via txt message.

Ironically, I have to allow google's shit through my firewall to even contribute here. Please stop feeding google data. They only use it to censor and enslave us.

We're a relatively dynamic bunch, with a wide variety of subjects and topics being discussed on the regular. Active during most of the day, but especially during Oceania hours, I think.

I largely feel the same way, and have considered setting up my own text board or something to get around the illegal image spam problem, but it just doesn't feel worth it. It's fatiguing, time consuming, and as you said, certain topics are pretty much suicide to include in any community nowadays for a variety of reasons. I feel like it's probably best to just contribute more to communities like this one rather than reinvent the wheel.

So many people that I know use discord, and despite agreeing that it's terrible, none of them are willing to migrate away due to the network effect. I've considered migrating back to IRC and XMPP, even though I know the communities are going to be way smaller. What is wrong with IRC these days?

>I feel like I wasted my life building websites in the late 90s/early 2000s. All of them are dead now. No one uses forums anymore.

This is always a strange problem to think about. Some would say that if you enjoyed it at the time, and formed good memories from what you did, then perhaps it was worth it. Others say that using online socialization as a surrogate for developing your social skills in meatspace could be a reason why you're struggling with interpersonal stuff now. Still others say that this depressive nostalgia about what "the internet has become" is partly a product of our inability to change with the times, or grow up and move to other hobbies/interests. One of the big draws/features of the imageboard was the ephemeral nature of it's content. Ironic how many of us very old chan users can't let things go.

>I can't tell if I'm just jaded or the entire world went to shit

It's no mystery that with our thoughts we make our world, and I've been chewing on this idea that the way we ravenously consume media about the things in the world we hate, has lead almost everyone to agree on one thing, which is that "things are getting shittier". I can go to any /tech/ board and convince myself that we're on the cusp of a brutal surveillance dystopia in under an hour, or I could go to any politics board and become convinced that my dragon of choice is about to eat the world. How much time do we spend scaring the shit out of ourselves or making ourselves depressed? The internet is definitely a different place than in '03, so then why do i spend so much more time on discord being irritated than on here? It's certainly vexing.

All that said, I know exactly how you feel, sushi roll. I've been using chans since 06 and I feel older and more out of touch with each passing year. That's just how it goes, I guess. Relishing the good parts of our youth without wallowing in nostalgia is a difficult balancing act.

>Relishing the good parts of our youth without wallowing in nostalgia is a difficult balancing act.
Agreed and empathized. Xennials and a good chunk of early gen Y have hit their +30's now. I get the feeling that a lot of us invested time online because we struggled to fit in irl. Now that online culture has not only evaporated, it's also merged with the "irl" we didn't fit in with. On top of that a lot of what we used to consider niche is now very mainstream and profitable– personal example: moeshit plastered on cars in my neighborhood. The internet will continue to change, z and alpha may feel as displaced in larger numbers when their platforms die and wonder why they wasted so much time on, idk, twitter and tiktok the same way we feel about our forums and websites.

Appreciate the past and let go, friends. It's nice to have sushi rollymous places like this to check in on, see a post like one of yours and think "hey, that's cool / i vibe with that." Make this period in your life something to be nostalgic for later, worth remembering, not behind a screen feeling irritated. This is the best sentiment I can offer, sorry that it's pretty "touch some grass" but it's been (mostly) working for me.
