i tried to spam with DESU and the little box says it thinks I'm spamming...lol. Came to visit after many years away today by chance. Not a lot has changed really, there's just a lot more of it and it overwhelms the small percentage of good content.
>>700635160 That is an easy question and i am glad you asked anon its because this new generation of /b/ users are a bunch of pussies who don't do shit most of you faggots i assume are underage nowadays right?? at least the majority also /b/ has also fallen because there is hardly any OC on it anymore same old bull shit these days no more original content like back in my day.
>>700635692 Exsactly this new generation is complete cancer little kids from YouTube who think they are cool by being edgy 12 year olds give me a fucking break 4chan isn't about the dank memes that they love so much it was about the LULz in my day something this new generation clearly does not understand also look what happened to anonymous a bunch of faggots in stupid ass mask fucking stupid as hell anonymous should have stayed as a group of trolls from /b/ because that is what it use to be.
>>700636396 Not OP The majority of /b/ is still here, but they just don't post as much or their quality replies are dwarfed by all the fags. Just earlier today I saw someone posting saying they were an oldfag since they'd been around for a year but they didn't know how to greentext
>>700636396 Most of us oldfags hang out on other boards on here now because while /b/ is now i can honestly say completely dead a lot of the other boards on here are still very much alive and still have great quality content and topics also some migrated to 8.ch 3chan and Final Chan and other places or moved on.
I've been away from /b/ forever now. I started WAY back in the the pre 911 days. I only visited /b/ today out of boredom. It feels a lot more like the general board on any other forum anywhere else. Not as crazy. More fake crazy.
As a somewhat old-ish fag, I can also say that the widespread use of memes and shit that's been posted here years ago seeping into "casual" social media outlets has played a part as well...
Now that any regular jackoff or teen bimbo can see things that were "classic" on /b/ years ago and spread it around, the content loses a lot of its pull.
People get used to the humor and such- BUT the same morons who spam Facebook with memes are the same ones who can't stomach true 4chan... Part of the reason reddit was created I assume- A PG-13 version of 4chan for faggots that couldn't hack it on 4chan.
>>700635935 Literally don't post or make a thread if you're underaged. We don't need "What does /b/ think about (Edgy youtuber that appeals to 12 year olds for ad revenue)?" or "God Tier Youtubers Bread!"
>>700637291 I was 13, half of my life I've been a /b/tard. Explains why nothing thrills me, faggots these days seriously get hard from bra and panty pics. We used to need to see no less then 3 giraffes fucking the same woman's anus
>>700637538 The only real picture someone who's been here for a long time would post is that fucking cat. >I have an illness, because of that fucking cat >apparently you don't remember how bad the spam was
>>700636134 >>700636134 It's the Seinfeld effect dude. Honestly that shit stopped being funny a long time ago if the stupid ass memes and threads that used to be posted on here were still being posted it would make me want to gouge my eyes out. The thing is, everyone who has been browsing here for so long is so god damn anti humor now everything pisses me off. At least that's just me anyways.
>>700638023 I mean yeah but he intended this website to be a normal image board for discussing anime and gay weeb shit like that. He didn't intend for /b/ to overrun the site and it's reputation as a shithole.
>>700638295 But I'm older now. I'm older and I'm not the same Cracky. It's been years. That Cracky forever lives in the past, anon. I grow fainter and fainter as time passes. The real me lives only in your memories.
>>700638091 To be honest like everyone else i hated Boxxy when she first came out but looking back now shes not so bad and i rather waste my time in a Boxxy thread instead of all the porn trash we have now.
>>700634980 been here for more than 15 years. Lurking for nudes back then but really get into any of the memes. Only thing that I ever contributed are the bachelor frog thread because i can fucking relate.
Oldfags went to other boards, and also post less. /b/ stopped being used for appropriately random shit and all the people who used to discuss actually relevant content like anything current in the world went to reddit, /r9k/, and /pol/ in years past which are all individual shit holes in their own rights because they all consist of like minded people that shouldnt gather together in a community of like minded individuals.
The people who are left here just want to fap and flame others so its not really all that different. Just less entertaining because theres not as many diamonds in the doo doo as there used to be.
One of the things that pisses me off the most now is all the newfags posting links to their discord servers. It destroys the anonymity of 4chan. I joined one of these servers myself once, and all I saw was bad meme spamming and links to threads asking other members of the Discord to bump them
Users originally were a very strict and self-selected demographic, but it was only after this place got the general public's attention that anyone who felt entitled to stick around 'for-teh-lulz' started using it for that purpose. Internal jokes stopped being spontaneous and became increasingly forced very quickly, the best example I can think of this trend was the "Fuck Yeah Seaking", and as the influx of morons started ramping up, it all got exponentially worse.
I was around when the image sharing boards began at the tail end of 2003. It was all anime bullshit, stupid posts, gore from rotten and child porn just all over the fucking place. All the drama between world2ch and 4chan about who might be stealing whoever's internet traffic and the exodus of somethingawful fuck faces onto this board. The news post in I think October of '03 that /b/ was a retard bin that was going to only last until the other boards got put up but it became too popular. The rise and fall of snacks. Thomas Jefferson. Femanon autofiltering to cumdumpster. Rise and fall of furries to imperial cleansing. I have been through everything that has happened to 4chan in it's glory and infamy.
4chan has always been shit. But it was our shit. And boy did you newfags fuck everything up.
>>700638719 Not the anon you replied too, but 4chan started in 2003, got somewhat popular in 2006, and started taking off in 2008, which is when EFG, Rageface, 5's and Kuso Miso / Desu started getting notoriety. After 2010, 4chan became appealing to "how to" or "we explain to you" websites or channels.
"They" tried to monetize or popularize 4chan culture, which turned quickly into cancerous internet culture because not enough oldfags told them to fuck off, go, and staygo..
>>700636558 Hahaha, I was in that thread. You the one that was posting backwards >>'s at the newfagging or just one of the ylyl contributors? I was the faggot who went, "You ruined this thread, we're leaving now."
>>700634980 Notice almost no one asked any questions. You know why? Because being an oldfag doesn't make you interesting or special and while it's fun to reminisce about the old days no one besides us really gives a fuck.
>>700634980 fellow oldfag here. this place has always been rotten, but it took a notable turn around 2010-2013. for the most part it was just a bunch of cheeky, anarchaic pranksters, but since then it's gotten increasingly more hostile, unstable and deliberate in its tone.
4chan is like that crazy guy you knew in highschool who was always getting in trouble in the best, most hilarious ways. but now 10 years out into adulthood and he has no friends, is missing a bunch of teeth, and just sputters out fragments of hate-speech and lives out of a car in the walmart parkinglot.
you wish you could have the old one back, but you know now even that was just the first step in a long, slow, downward spiral.
>>700644079 we became one of two types of people. 1. the kind of people who should stop doing drugs or 2. the kind of people who did stop doing drugs. there's no going back. we are lost in the slow dragging orbit of full on adulthood. At best, the wold can only offer us children, mortgages, divorces, lots of dead friends and even more to come.
As much as I hate to say it, MLP, prior to the brony-culture was the last twinkle of anything endearing or sweet that 4chan embraced. I haven't seen it celebrate anything at all since then. But looking at how creepy that became I can understand why.
If you werent here for the "/b/ has changed" with metal gear solid 4 guns of the patriots music playing on loop, get the fuck out of the thread, you're too new to be asking oldfags ANY questions.
>>700644865 You're cancer. There were never any grown up's here to begin with. If you want "adult hood", go visit [s4s]. That's what /b/ would have turned into had it not been for the people on drugs telling these people to constantly fuck off.
>>700645046 used to be a way to bait newfags. the first post was usually a headshot, then a few body-shots above the waist, they'd wait until a lot of anons were breathing heavy and then show the cock and make people freak out.
that's where the "ITS A TRAP!" meme started. one person would get suspicious and start warning the rest.
>>700645751 not OP but I come here because this place reminds me of a piece of myself that I had to outgrow. Like coming back to a playground you went to as a kid, now rusted and covered with graffiti. It's gone to shit, I'm too big for it, but I can't help but visit sometimes just to remember.
>>700636862 It's not as crazy because of all the s0 3dgy dietcoke nazis wailing about mentally ill degenerates and autists and chasing away all the entertainment with the crazy. Great job ridding the Fatherland of all the interesting lunatics, hn? Now the gene pool is clean! CLEAN! So those 12 year olds can breed with each other and produce pure aryan buttbabies free of mental defects such as humor.
>>700646611 i could feel the anger in that stupid post. but you're also right. a weird breed of society-police set up camp here and their extremely boring brand of psychopathy sprawled out really quick.
>>700648192 we, the collective who were here during and after that shitstorm. even though we're anonymous to each other, there's a base presence of people who visit this site daily and saw what was transpiring and decided to just go with it and enable the new voices because we decided we wanted to take stake in it.
>>700647966 You're right. I think we all thought GG would be just another self-contained nerd drama with a little mainstream attention, and so we filed in behind one side or the other for a good ol fun shit-flinging contest. Without knowing it, we played a big part of targeted internet harassment/attention whoring going pro.
I started in 2006 and it was fun thru 2009 or so. Not sure whats bringing out a post from me now, its been more than 5 years except for a few questions and answers at /ck/ and /g/ This board is really only good for pictures of hot girls, and to track major internet dramas. ISIS videos, leaked nudes, crude jokes after a tragedy. This really went to shit once captchas or a 4chan pass were introduced, I went into "read-only" mode, and never participating.
And I know you remember, how we could justify it all. And we knew better; in our hearts... we knew better. And we told ourselves it didn't matter. And we chose to continue, and none of that matters anymore.
>>700651144 newfag doesn't even have meaning anymore though. it's become synonymous with cuck, fag, shill and nigger. just another word someone uses when they disagree with you and want to invalidate whatever you have to say.
>>700651329 thing is, normies are still unwelcome here. the prevailing voice on 4chan is the extremist alt-right. When SJW's started whoring for attention these assholes marched in and we used them as muscle. Now they're here and vehemently chase down anything they deem freakish or degenerate. So we're stuck. Either we let them keep doing what they're doing, or we start being as pathetic as the snowflake SJW victim-whores we didn't want here in the first place.
>>700651329 For it to be really new and creative I can't tell you what it is. You'll have to search and discover it for yourself.
4chan was a genetic search algorithm like any other human endeavor. There was so, so, so much stupid and useless crap - but because everything was OK enough stupid and useless crap was posted that the gems were found.
The best advice I can give is to be willing to create and to fail and to keep creating. That's the creative process anywhere, even here.
People 30 years ago wouldn't have understood (let alone appreciated) the 4chan for which some are waxing nostalgic, and 10 years from now people won't know why anyone cared.
The opportunity in the death of the old is to discover a new life, one connected to and grateful to what came before, but also new and different.
I hope I can someday appreciate the fruits of your search. Godspeed and good luck.
4chan in its heyday was kind of like filthy frank. offensive, shameless, hard to look but sort of interesting in a retarded way. now it's like keemstar. aggressive, pathetic, spiteful, childish and just all round nasty.
ITT: My supa secret club has been invaded No one gives a fuck really you just make yourself look like basement dwelling neckbeards the more you try to justify your long term stay on this board. If you don't like it fix it or fuck off complaining like a bitch isn't going to do shit.
/a/ IS like old /b/. If you haven't noticed that and the fact that after all these years, /a/ has been able to keep it's in-culture mostly intact - you're the fucking newshit here.
Have you ever even browsed OR lurked /a/? For more than a year? Actually, you need to go read the question I answered instead of criticizing my answer. He asked where did they go, not "how are the two comparable", you fucking autist.
>>700634980 okay, so how to we return /b/ to a place where people can be fucked up cheeky weirdos and offensive freaks, but start doing away with the wanabe-based alt right faggots who mob-rape everything that isn't them with "gb2 reddit/tumblrfag/cuck/shill/jew/nigger/sjw/white knight"?
how do we put the real filth in its place but still keep this place unsafe and fantastically trashy?
>>700653318 >newshit >implying having an "intact culture" makes it like old /b/ >implying content of the board is irrelevant Can't tell if trolling or part of the inbred cancer, go back to your faggy weeaboo animu forum
I've been here a long time. There is no new OC, kids are ruining b, reclaim the interweb bullshit is as old as /b itself. It has been the same shit from day 1, pretty much now just without CP and raids. No great loss there.
>>700653778 Report all porn threads, start posting pedobear approved threads, bring back kuso miso, start making dubs threads and "newfags can't triforce" threads, start requesting image edits of famous actors faces in fucked up ways, naked, always always naked, tell newfags to fuck off, summer to fuck off, normalfags to fuck off, make sure you lurk, post creative OC, but also twists on that OC, ban the usage of the word "meme", request mods find janitors whos I.P.s are non static old I.P.s that are recognizable. Bring back snacks, bring back daily desu threads, bring back EFG, Ban all bronies, allow discussion of media corruption. Allow raids, allow gore.
I mean, do you want pre 2009 /b/? or just a "normal fun place" - tier /b/?
>>700654457 I think /b/ will never be the same as it used to be I came here couple of times since 2013, lurking, not posting jack shit, only in May I decided to lurk extensively, to dig the past, learn the culture What I found was pretty depressive Since no newfags did any lurking or researching they just implemented ways and culture of sites they came from And as long as they are here /b/ won't get to it's former state, and if they go there won't be any oldfags to post Maybe it is for the best for /b/ to just die, start over somewhere else, with new culture, new public
But then again, in all of your eyes I'm just a newfag with no right to speak
>>700653778 We introduce the baptism by fire that used to exist here that was slowly fazed out due to people wanting to be accepted here without having to go through the normal routine.
Learning how to triforced, following internet rules, learning to lurk, learning how to spoiler, upside down post, learning how to edit, learning what to, and what not to say, and eventually becoming a lurkfag who JUST BARELY fits in enough to post 1, maybe 2 threads a month successfully.
We call these people out. These people essentially refused to go through the trials of being called a faggot and having to experience the "sit of shame" or being called a nigger for the first 2 months.
>>700654420 you keep saying that like it'll work. like one day you'll tell somebody they're being a tumblrfag and they'll actually go "aw geez, i guess i am arent i? guess i'll quiet down and go away now"
we're stuck with eachother faggot, handle your butthurt and continue in this discussion where someone disagrees with you or leave.
>>700655129 Doge was funny for like a year, but once everyone started spamming it it became stale and forced, now only place it can be found "funny" was at place where memes become stale, 9fag Maybe on some other places aswell, but 9fag still finds it funny for some god awful reason
>>700655149 /b/ is dead and it was never good forever we are here, but many found home in other boards, slower, less infested with this mainstream bullshit older people moved on, have other things to do, this kind of stuff
>>700655487 You will always be able to find it on Google cause someone out there is going to post it on another site for others to learn the ways and unless you're going update that shit regularly you're both fucking retarded.
>>700655776 not if the lore and lingo is so dense it can't be compressed into a few paragraphs or 10 minute video. the point is to exploit the laziness of the outsider wanting to pretend he's an insider.
>>700655979 oh sure, but like i just said. if its something that isn't easily condensed into a tidy quick little tutorial then the majority of people won't bother. sure, a few still will but the numbers will decrease greatly.
>>700656010 You say this like people can't put two and two together and figure out a pattern. This isn't atom splitting we're talking about here. But fuck off if you think everyone will agree with you. But don't get me wrong I like the idea of baptism of fire but you'd have to be an idiot not to think someone somewhere who gets on here won't try to fuck it up for the hell of it.
