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.

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.

I miss moot and snacks and mod interaction. This place feels so soulless now
>>
>>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
>>
>>700636486
Mods only interact now if you claim to be underage, or if you post cp. m00t doesnt even use his mod powers to do cool things anymore
>>
>>700636638
Does he still have mod powers after he sold the domain?
>>
>>700636638
Might have something to do with moot not being a mod anymore since he fucking sold the entire site to the japs
>>
>>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.

This.

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.

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

People started using /b/ as a way to get what they wanted, instead of bringing in what they had, if that makes it any more clear.

Also, what >>700639591 said.

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'm 31 years old. Going on 32.

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.

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..

Everything balances itself over time. Like the effeminate offspring of a warrior, 4chan now is simply the complement of all it once was.

I make posts like leaving flowers on the grave of a loved one, and I keep coming back because I don't want to accept that what 4chan was is long dead.

The biggest problem is that we all stopped doing drugs.

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.

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.

during gamergate we saw a huge influx of people come in from the extremist authoritarian right and they've been allowed to spread in our ranks and recruit newfags with the "redpill" gimmick.

We tried to contain them in /pol/ but containing these types of people is as good as containing nuclear waste in a wet cardboard box.

They need to go. It was a mistake to ever tolerate them in the first place.

Yeah, that was back before the "image search" function was added to 4chan. You had to actually do some detective level digging to find shit.

That doesn't mean change and growth are impossible, here or anywhere. It means don't try to resuscitate the past.

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.

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.

Faggot.

Some say it's 8ch, but, only midfags who were sick of the gamergate / zoe quin conspiracy / elevatorgate threads migrated to 8ch.

It only got popular because of that - however - people stayed there because there's less restrictions on what can and cannot be discussed there, so it's the favored /b/ of the astute "oldfag"

The real migration happened over to /a/ AFTER /v/ and /vg/ were abandoned due to "ethics journalism" threads being purged. 8ch's, /v/ board is pretty boring.

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

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.

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.

>>700655239
you're onto something with this. we need new baptisms though. stuff that can't just be put into a primer and found in a google search.

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

/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

Right...so like secretive in-jokes and keywords?
I hate to say it, but if you wanna learn from the best, go to /a/. Their in-jokes are literally god tier.
>>
>>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.

When youtube channels started popping up "explaining" 4chan memes, that's when "memes" were officially dead.
>>
>>700655613
same way it was when it began. a lengthy series of known "in-rules" that aren't easily paired down into a couple paragraphs on a wiki or in a quick youtube tutorial.
>>
>>700655838
As long as there are codes like what you're imagining there will always be code breakers who some won't give a shit about ruining this for you.
>>
>>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.
