Seems like it was actually .org TLD. It does seem to be down though, and unfortunately their robots.txt disallowed crawlers so there's no archives anywhere.

>on another circlejerk board called /tea/
On an unrelated note, I like the concept of ephemerality behind /tea/ but find the implementation with doushio liveboard to be lacking. The issue with liveboards is that you have a few people monopolizing the conversation, and it tends to result in short lower-quality posts. The non-linear conversation flow and more frequent back & forth interactions also make it harder to join an existing thread, making it feel more like it's some sort of pseudo-private dialogue between individuals rather than an open forum.

Opps.. I forgot to donate to wikipedia. Time to set that right.
>> No. 33858 [Edit]
I'm convinced Wikipedia donations are a complete sham. There are other foundations (Internet Archive) that require several times more resources, have a tenth of the funds, and manage to do much more. I really don't think that Wikipedia needs any more money to pad their bureaucratic overhead, and your funds would be better donated to places like the Internet Archive.
>> No. 33859 [Edit]
If I had to guess, and be generous here, It'd say maybe it's the bandwidth. It's such a well known site that I'm sure is the go to for educational institutes around the world.
>> No. 33866 [Edit]
I don't think bandwidth would be too significant a problem because pages should be able to compress nicely (mostly plain text), and the traffic patterns would be very amenable to a cache/CDN. Compare this to internet archive where a majority of modern pages are pretty much 3MB of minified javascript, and access patterns will be much less cache friendly. And either way Wikipedia has plenty of money already, at least according to:

Besides rating sites for media (Anidb/mangaupdates/RateYourMusic) and sites to stream/download said media (nyaa, madokami, filehost scrapers, libgen, streaming sites, boorus) I don't really go anywhere on the internet anymore, it has been homogenized into cancerous shit filled with/pandering to/advertising to ford-drivers. Even if you want to find niche content google et al always try to push generic popular shit on you. It sucks.

If it weren't for the fact that there's basically no really functional movie, game, book, or comic rating site I'd probably never go to any other part of the web at all. As it stands I occasionally search around for recommendation blogs or even recs on forums. It would also be nice if there was a booru site for art in general. There's wiki-art and google's art thing, but they both are patchy and have shit search functions.

>>33473 is a site for indexing and tracking webcomics, I don't know how many webcomics exist so I don't know how complete it is, but it is far better than the old crappy webcomic indexes at least.

>Isn't that the one that's invite-only? It seems absurd to need to hobnob on their irc to be "granted" an invite to comment; and from what I've seen most articles are from HN anyway, but with a fraction of the comments.
From what I've seen, getting an invite is pretty easy. One can get one on HN, too. With regards to' purpose, it's a more focused HN: posts should be strictly related to hacking, programming, software, etc. So it's like a filter for HN; anything related to tech companies' financials, social aspects of technology, politics, and such periphery topics should be verboten. The smaller community helps preserve this environment. However, there is a vocal minority that believes everything is political, and thus such topics should be permitted as refraining from those discussions is, too, a political choice. I believe the admins will eventually either acquiesce or outright capitulate to these people. And as we all know: political discussions ruin everything. Even sites that think they're above such consequences are ignorant of its detrimental effects on their communities.
>> No. 36200 [Edit]
>refraining from those discussions is, too, a political choice
Even if it is, what difference does it make? You'd think people who decided to use an obscure HN clone which doesn't aggregate that kind of news would agree with that choice. It's not like there aren't other places that already cater to them.

Not sure about a side-story trilogy but Rogue One and Solo were the side-story movies produced to fill the gaps in the sequel trilogy. No news about another side-story movie though.

Currently The Mandolorian is streaming and although successful, I don't believe it's what Disney had in mind when making more Star Wars.

It's amusing to me they burn truck tons of money producing big grand epic films everyone hates, but the low budget ground to earth tc series they didn't care about was their most critically well received entry.

Oh, ahhh, whooops! So it's simply a trilogy in five parts!

Well, you never know, maybe they did have games in mind. But if so, then that would probably be of an MMO or two. Still, they ought to be able to get that they should muster an appreciation of the industry, develop a bit of goodwill/reputation, and that kind of stuff, you know, at least make use of some stepping stones, so either way, they still could outsource it to those who took good care of it before, conceivably.

You might as well. Star Wars is one of those franchises that had a good enough start to become popular, kept it's momentum and did interesting things early on but by the time it lost it's soul and quality it was something that was already popular enough to stick around as something people attach more importance to than it deserves.

>the movies were repulsive!
Why? It's just above average, 70s pulp sci-fi. It's got a hero's journey and some aliens and a cool looking, mildly interesting bad guy and some space battles and a hasty redemption arc. The music is basically a shameless rip-off of Holst, but it sounds nice. Even if, IF, the games are better in some way, they probably didn't need to be attached to star wars.
>> No. 36888 [Edit]
Because it isn't any sort of simple narative display from a single source that has a concept of a simple universe to spontaneously share with everyone at all, it's a natural goldmine tapping the abilities of a wide range of contributors. Over the years, it ended up musterring some honesty towards this. But the original movies ended up forcing that to the degree that it could, and kludging all that neat setting and such around that incredibly lame space-paladin mythical theme.

But you don't need JS to track users _within_ the domain that they own. Cookies should be sufficient for that. And note that even Google doesn't do the tracking via JS, they do it via a redirect link.
>> No. 37327 [Edit]
I decided to do some digging and it seems that the bloat is because they're doing client-side rendering via a single page app. So not malice, just incompetence enabled via the usual web frameworks. That also explains why the page doesn't work with JS enabled.

Interestingly, if you force the mobile version of the site you get a much more responsive version (at the expense of having fewer images per page).

Other than imageboards I just use youtube, reddit, and gelbooru. I don't have as many complaints about youtube as others do. I don't appreciate big youtubers essentially getting censored but thankfully it hasn't affected me yet. I have a bad habit of letting my curiosity push me to read the comments sometimes and it's almost never worth it. Otherwise it's decent enough entertainment either as a radio for background noise or providing nice videos to watch.
Reddit is something I could complain about a lot because it really does have that many problems. Though I've noticed the people who like to hate on it do for grossly outdated stereotypes (fedora wearing atheists and such) when the users are anything but that and at least those old stereotypes might be people who can think for themselves. Instead it's filled with teenagers and children who can't live without a constant supply of low-quality memes, smug ford drivers, radical liberals, lazy or powertripping mods, punishments for "wrongthink" (ie: joking about trannies or posting sfw loli), and recently bots.
But it's easy enough to subscribe only to subs I like which is why I'm subscribed to so many subreddits for anime art and certain anime traits like pink hair or maids. A few of the common problems to reddit as a whole still exist on even those but to a much smaller degree, sometimes not at all. I like to post on the smaller ones and I've even made two subreddits of my own which I have been trying to gather users for through crossposting in the past month. It makes me a little happy when I post a nice image that makes other people happy and I like to make silly jokes sometimes. I can and probably should just post images to boards instead but I think I enjoy doing it more on reddit because, at the risk of sounding like a karmawhore, the upvotes, comments, and especially the post awards, are a way of telling me someone liked the image I posted and (hoping they even know how) saved the image. On boards I can post images that I think people would like and I would never know if they liked it or not because imageboards just work differently. So I really can just post whatever but I prefer not to be so lazy about it. Reddit at least keeps my goal in finding and sharing comfy images from being a complete waste of time or effort.
I think I already posted about gelbooru before but I like using the site because I can be as picky with tags as I want and the blacklist function is really convenient. It's really nice knowing that I could do most of that even without an account though having one lets me pick up the slack for users who didn't tag images properly or missed an obvious tag to use. I almost always have a tab with gelbooru.

I believe there's always tacit appreciation for any post on smaller boards. (Assuming the aforementioned post isn't low-quality drivel.) And, at the risk of being impertinent, divesting oneself from people's approbation (Especially of the low-effort variety as is the case here.) is a goal worth pursuing.

I agree but it's hard for me since I'm the kind of person who doesn't know when I'm doing things right or wrong without some kind of feedback from someone who knows better than me. It could probably be argued that if nobody is angry at me then I must be doing something right but a lack of feedback, such as no replies to a thread, doesn't tell me how to improve on something. This is, of course, even after reading rules and lurking, in the context of imageboards, then I can only do what I assume would be best and hope for the best. Maybe I'm just too inexperienced and uncertain as a result.

My biggest complaint is their change to the search and related video algorithms. Used to be when you watched a video, there would be a ton of new videos that were related and you could go down a rabbit hole of new stuff. You could go from something about guns to something about car manufacturing in an hour or so. Now, it's all just 1) videos from the same channel, 2) videos you've already seen before, and 3) videos from channels you were already subscribed to. This sucks the most for music, because I used to use youtube to find new music but now it just circles me through the same dozen or so songs if I'm trying to click my way down through a music rabbit hole.

There's something about Youtube that's just so sticky.
Just being able to passively consume video is very addictive
>> No. 37638 [Edit]
For this reason I've reduced my youtube consumption to weekends only.
>> No. 37671 [Edit]
Out of curiosity, what types of videos do you consume? Because outside videos I actively search for and the one or two times the suggestions have been appealing, I find the auto-recommendation close to useless and the quality of content mostly terrible. I suppose my use of youtube is closer to a fungible video hosting platform accessed through external sites rather than as a sticky "content hub."

I'd recommend deleting your channel and all of its subscriptions. If you do that, there's less temptation to "keep track" of what all of these people are putting out. I did that years ago. On the front page, there's now also an option to stop getting recommendations from specific channels.
>> No. 37808 [Edit]
>On the front page, there's now also an option to stop getting recommendations from specific channels.
Where's that?
>> No. 37809 [Edit]
Next to recommended videos on the front page, there's three dots with an option to stop receiving any recommendations from that channel. This applies to recommendations on the front page and every video. This feature works, despite being needlessly cumbersome and dumb ui wise. You have to be using the newest ui, so if you're on an old one for some reason, change it.
>> No. 37811 [Edit]
I've been using that feature for a long time but it really is a sisyphean task to filter out all the garbage yt throws at you. They have a virtually infinite pile of crap to throw your way while my patience is rather in short supply. Only thing that worked for me was to abandon the front page entirely and go straight to the subscription tab instead.
>> No. 37812 [Edit]
Aside from a different front end, which has its own problems, I can't think of any way that youtube could be improved when it comes to curation. There is an uploader based tagging system, but that's worth fuck all to other users. When internet speeds get fast enough for p2p video streaming to become tolerable, if that ever happens, I wonder if monolithic, poorly designed services like youtube will become obsolete. I feel like there's got to be a better way. I have been recommended things I ended up enjoying before, so boxing myself in to only things I know about wouldn't work for me.

My main gripe with it is how dumb it is. Say, I spend 4 months searching for a specific type of music on yt but if I click one solitary 30 seconds video clip of a shitty justice league movie, yt completely forgets everything I was doing and destroys my main page by dumping shitty cape shit movie clips. Shouldn't there be a balance in there somewhere? Doesn't seem hard to implement. It's been a long time since I visited my front page so maybe they improved that, I don't know.
I actually like yt, there's ton of stuff I would never know it existed if weren't for it, so my complaint is really just a small thing in the end. Doesn't really bother me that much but since we're talking about it, I feel like bringing it up.
>> No. 37814 [Edit]
If you could choose whether of not youtube "remembers" you watching a video instantly and an option to prioritize a video you like in recommendations, that would a step up. Private/incognito mode exists so, you can use that for anything you don't want to include.

One of the biggest issues is that youtube has things it recommends by default. It's impossible to completely wipe the slate clean since youtube already has its own idea of what people want to/ should watch.

Jewtube has a watch history that you can turn off so it won't continue piling things onto you based on what you watched. You can also toggle your notifications in the settings. With that said, I'm not sure how much it might help you. Youtube doesn't bother me too much because I have those things in place but also because I kept marking videos as "not interested" or "don't recommend this channel" until it eventually stopped which I think took a few years, I don't remember for sure but it's the best I can think of.

Reddit is still uneeded in your scenario. If you want to find "pink haired maids" go look up tags on a booru or pixiv (As you have said, you use gelbooru). And why do you care about recognition for your posts so much? Just like >>37443 said, if you post on a smaller imageboard, your posts will be more valued than somewhere like 4chan.

I looked through two sites that list other imageboards and I found nothing I will browse in the future.
Some boards looked nice at first glance, but browsing though them revealed that it was nothing I would like. This entire adventure was quite disappointing, there are a lot of boards I can't read because of the language (Russian, Japanese, Spanish), a lot of boards that shooed me away immediately (modern memes, politics, porn) and a lot of boards that were dead.
Overall TC is still the last imageboard that I enjoy. Since years I poke around to find other boards, but never ever I found one. If TC ever goes down, I most likely will quit imageboards, a thought that frightens me, because TC is the only interaction with likeminded people I have. ... I miss the 00s. Late 90s or early 10s would also be okay.

I've found a few other decent places, but I agree, no other imageboard has quite the same vibe as here. My guess is that it's due to simply being around for a long time and developing an identity and culture of our own. By comparison, the newer altchans don't have staying power and their culture is defined entirely by people fleeing the latest shitstorms on the larger sites.
I also think both the rules and the old-school presentation filter out the younger crowd who would otherwise ruin everything because they've only known the modern shitty Internet.
>> No. 40095 [Edit]
I wonder if something like KS will ever be done again.
>> No. 40096 [Edit]
Yeah, I love TC's rules. I wish more sites would have similar rules, but then again, I doubt they'd work as well anywhere else. You really have to appreciate how firm moderation is.
As for the presentation, I don't know what you mean about old-school. Maybe I'm out of touch, but it seems fine to me. I feel right at home here, despite probably being one of those younger crowd.
>> No. 40097 [Edit]
Some other altchans are a little flashier, with more modern-looking layouts, more bells and whistles like uploading multiple images per post, not having to manually use noko, etc.
TC is very classic, which is part of the charm in my opinion. I'm just saying it might ward off a lot of the Gen Z types who are used to everything on the Internet being streamlined to the gnat's ass.
>> No. 40098 [Edit]
Oh, I see. It feels fine to me. I don't really bother with sites that aren't simple. It just seems strange to have a bunch of features that don't really do anything. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it", as they say. Coincidentally, those sites usually suck. They generally lack purpose other than being the same as a site, but more up to date and all the wrong users.
You're probably right, though. I figure most people around my age are used to all of that nonsense.
>> No. 40099 [Edit]
May I ask which boards you consider decent?
I know this is very personal, so feel free to ignore my curiosity.
The rules are truly god sent, they prevent everything I loathe and provide an oasis straight out of the old Internet I loved.

I highly doubt it. Katawa Shoujo was something that came forth during the peak of Internet and imageboards. Maybe it's the reason why I consider 2012 the last good year on the Internet, who knows.

Lately I've been on an imageboard kick, revisiting sites I used to spend a lot of time on in the days of yore. ED has an alright list of alt chans, although it could benefit from being updated since some of the listed entities are now defunct.

I'm curious though; what other imageboards do people here use? It would be cool to know of some that aren't filled with /pol/yp cancer and actually have active moderation*chan_boards

Nenpo (it's back), Smug, /late/, /kind/, Lainchan and Uboachan all come to mind. Some of them are quite slow, unfortunately.
