This is a board for topics that don't fit on other boards, but that are still otaku/hobby related.

Whats the oldest thing you remember from 4chan? (assuming most of us originally browsed that site) hopefully we can talk about 4chan without the thread going bad

For me I think it was either over 9000 spam or a hoax to put nuclear dirty bombs in football stadiums by some guy named Jake Brahm which led to the saying 'you don't mess with football'.

Man those were simpler times. Things were fresh, new and funny. Funnily enough, there were few 2D purists back then and most otaku were interested in 3D.

I remember this being a sticky, which was hilarious at the time for some reason

Have you ever gone and looked at all the really, really old images you saved from 4chan? The ones from 2004 or so? None of them are funny.

Nothing is funny really. I'm kind of angry that I'm still doing this ten years later. I thought things would have changed by now.

Things can change any time you want them to.

It was funny then. You're just looking at it from a jaded 2016 perspective. Comedy from decades ago doesn't seem funny to us now, but that's because culture and thus our perspective has changed. If there's anything to envy from 2004 4chan, it's the fact that it was a tightly-knit community that genuinely enjoyed itself and was incredibly unique. When it grew in popularity and aged, this was necessarily over. With the massive influx of new people, 4chan was destined to either change culturally and lose what made it special in the first few years or become stagnant. Imageboards will never go back to that, for better or worse.

Some of the 1990s stuff on 4chan was OK, but its been shit since at least '02

hard to say

for the part, i just browsed 4chan for /h/ and /e/ back in 2004, but i do remember the star craft 2 reveal being stickied on /v/.
>> No. 28472 [Edit]
I first found 4chan from some trolls spamming "PIHB" in the WoW OT forum, which led me to urban dictionary's troll slang section, which led me to /b/. Probably about 7 years ago now.

When I first decided to branch out to other boards, I took a look at /h/ - "Hentai" first, but then I found "Hentai - Alternative" and wondered what's the difference? I should go check it out! And so started to spend time on /d/. That has probably fucked me up somehow.
>> No. 28573 [Edit]
I preferred it in the early 80s. Things really went to shit around the time the Soviet Union started to collapse and all the newfags flooded in.
>> No. 29231 [Edit]
I remember getting the 4chan frontpage when googling certain images and being mad that I couldn't find them when trying to browse the site, which was difficult to use for me at the time.

I think it was probably around 2005-2006 that I became a regular. I remember this because it was around that time that I got into anime more seriously and stuck around for Eureka 7 threads.

The whole site was basically an extension of /b/ with different topics though. Barely any coherent discussion taking place anywhere

Only it was with hentai

some underage kid crossdressed with cum on his face made a thread about how he "bitched up" because no one was home so he did that lay back on your shoulders thing and jerked off on himself.

I saved all the pictures, a 30+ year old man from sweden posted himself in a picture with the post "I want to lick your face". He had a rolled cigarette dangling from his mouth and had a compound bow hanging on his wall. I used that picture he posted for the longest time to catfish people, like calling people niggers, posting that pic and saying it was me etc. dumb shit.

was a long time ago.
>> No. 29273 [Edit]
this was round 2008 time or so

I had been browsing ED since 0607 or so and after getting my feet wet on 4chan my first "raid" was on Pruane2Forever's "screw you porn addicts" so I vividly remember this time.

looked him up cause of this thread. he shut down his channel last spring it seems.

hyperactive dweeb, grew up to became a depressed loser.

reminds me of me. reminds me of a lot of me. too bad.

From the time when I actually started lurking it'd probably be stuff like SHOOP DA WHOOP, cockmongler etc.
I stumbled upon it much earlier but I didn't even know any english then so I didn't understand shit and eventually forgot about it.
I think I discovered it again when media started reporting on DOMESTIC TERRORISM and scientology shit. People say it's when it went to shit so I'll always feel like a permanewfag.
Left probably 2013, maybe even 12 for some smaller places that eventually withered and died or changed for worse. Haven't browsed much in last year or two and most of the sites I have bookmarked are gone or dying now.
Every couple of months I get this feeling that I want to go back but I don't really know any places anymore.
Do you browse any other imageboards? Do you still find it fun or is it just a habit?
I thought I was doing myself a favor when I quit, many people were saying the same when they were going but for me nothing really filled that void. It's not like I ever had a "life" to go back to.
>> No. 29351 [Edit]
A lot of the mid 2000's 4chanism already mentioned itt I came across when i'd spend most of my time on the old YouTube community. I was young so I believed most of the rumors that hinted 4chan being the most fucked up place on the internet. Didn't start browsing well into what most of you would consider it's comatose state.
This is the only imageboard I browse. I've become so increasingly alienated with the internet as whole that i'm unsure as to what to do next. I think I might have found another clue as to why NEETs past the age of 25 that post are so rare. Someone on here has shared similar sentiments, hope he's doing alright...

>Do you browse any other imageboards? Do you still find it fun or is it just a habit?

8chan's /late/, /kind/ and /jp/, sushichan (, sometimes uboachan's /ot/ and 76chan's /sp/. I still enjoy imageboards, I just don't enjoy 4chan.

>Every couple of months I get this feeling that I want to go back but I don't really know any places anymore.

Small imageboards pop up and disappear all the time, you just have to look around and keep exploring to find new places to enjoy!
>> No. 29447 [Edit]
The guy who owns uboachan is the exact type of facebook kiddie trash who made you hate 4chan to begin with. Michael D. Reilly of San Jose, CA to be exact.
>> No. 29448 [Edit]
I haven't had any issues with him. He took over sushichan after itamae disappeared so I talked to him a bit on /yakuza/ before the traffic picked back up and he was pretty friendly.

>is drug-addicted

everyone on the internet doesn't just find out you're a drug addict by accident. its just more of the same type of public posturing flaming assholes like that love to do. hows everyone know? did he post it to his instagram or something?

it's all he and his butt buddies talk about on their irc. i heard he was using the site to arrange drug deals too. rozencrab never should have given him the sight, tsukihime was doing fine.

committing crimes in public view is a really fantastic pose
in fact there is no other reason to commit crimes in public view
most criminals are more concerned with avoiding the penalties of getting caught than they are with how cool they look doing it.

I first found out about 4chan in late 2011. I remember still posting when you had to post noko in the email field, niggers tounge my anus, the Heaven copypasta, the guy that posted all of his pissjars every year and that's what I remember from that era. I used to post on /b/, /f/ and /a/ most of the time, /f/ was definetely the best and most fun of the bunch. Sometime in late 2012 a guy made a thread about those "hidden" (lmao) boards that moot supposedly keeps from the public aka. world4ch. /f/ and world4ch used to have no captcha I recall.

Though world4ch was slow as shit and spammed to hell and back I have the most fond memories on there. /anime/ was a great board; loved the Amagami challenge threads. I think I even made the very last or one of the last threads on there and /vip/. /prog/ was always hilarious as shit and still is a good place to be at. I remember a bunch of shit from /lounge/ too, funny as hell. Ever since I've been more interested in textboards and spinoffs and less interested in /b/ and 4chan in general until I stopped to post only on /jp/ and its spinoffs and then drop 4chan completely and move on to 8jp (which is shit) and then 4taba (which is decent).

Nowadays I have an on-off relationship with imageboards, sometimes I post on a handfull of boards and sites and sometimes I post nowhere. I don't know how it's with you guys, considering that most of you seem to have been involved with imageboards for more than a decade now. For me it's "only" been half a decade. I remember 2011-late 2013 fondly, though you guys probably consider the time utter shit. I guess I was younger then too.

Sorry for the CV, I thought this thread was a good oppurtunity for me to recap on those last 5 years. To think I was 14 back then lol

You're still young enough to make it. Run while you still can.

While I agree it's an eyesore, within the context of this thread it seems harmless.

I didn't go on 4chan until pretty late in the sites existence, but I think it was kind of a strange case where 4chan didn't really impact my life because I never had "a life" at any point in my childhood or late teens. I've been sitting inside alone since day one, I can't ever leave imageboards because I don't know anything else.
>> No. 30145 [Edit]
I still like /out/ and /toy/. /ck/ is pretty funny sometimes but makes me too hungry to browse.

Everything that once had some relevance in my life happened, more or less, 20 years ago. Like if the period between 1998-2004 concentrated all.

From personal experience, in the west at least, serious 2d purism and waifuism wasn't widespread until at least 2010.

This thread getting bumped was bizarre, it's odd/a bit amusing how much worse things have gotten, but I am also glad that a lot of the imageboard world no longer cares or perhaps realizes that it is futile to complain about it anymore.

I haven't given a shit about SA in nearly 15 years and by all accounts he was a shitty guy, but I still felt a little sad about the news, especially after hearing it was a suicide. I thought his stuff was funny when I was a kid new to the internet, and my life wouldn't have been the same without him.
