When did you first come to 4chan?
What was it like?
same here. was fucking 13. i didnt post because i just started learning english but loved the pictures and came through with translators. most of the time i just masturbated here.
What the fuck did you just fucking say about me, you little bitch? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fuck out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my fucking words. You think you can get away with saying that shit to me over the Internet? Think again, fucker. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re fucking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shit. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your fucking tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shit fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re fucking dead, kiddo.
2008, I came right after the Boxxy censorship
anyone remember what year the T-rex dick guy was ?
Didn't know the exact date, but Wikipedia helped. Sep 16, 2008
first logged on to BBS systems in the 80s(I am 52) then the internet in the 90s. 90s was the best IRC and Usenet and NO LAWS whatsoever and you could access anyone using Windows screen and keyboard. 4 Chan is fucking boring compared to what IRC used to be like.
It was a mess to figure out what the hell was going on, which is good for keeping newfags out (no auto-noko, no (You)s)
Combos were everywhere, the memes were actually funny.
Then, Advice Dog and rage threads killed everything
I knew about this place ~5 years ago but Ive only just started coming here regularly. Newestfag.
I remember people talked about this place differently, like you guys would actually do shit.
First visit was 2003. My weeaboo friend showed it to me. It seemed lame I hated it. Just a bunch of Otaku weebs.
2005 Another less weeb friend shows it to me again. Thought it was pretty funny. But preferred the Fark something awful and YTMND
2006-2007 I got hooked. Started collecting and amassing a huge library of photos.
2008-2009 I started my first internship in my career field. They basically encouraged us to browse the internet for interesting news stories. I start ditching 4chan in favor of Digg, because it's more efficient and easier to be SFW at work. Digg goes the way of the dinosaur I switch for Reddit.
4chan reserves a spot in my heart for ocassional randomness and OC once every couple of days for about 15 minutes since then.
4chan does not have any bright people anymore. Just a bunch of wannabes.
The 90's were so much fun, anyone connected to the internet was open, you could see the IP of anyone you were communicating with and then just connect to their PC and browse their HD. I once hacked into a large international newspaper and could leave comments under other users names, that was the best trolling EVER, one well placed comment and 3 days later the flame war would be still going. In those days nearly everyone one on the internet had a degree and wars were spectacular none of this fuckwit rage you get nowadays.
nah we still have our good threads.
They are just few and far between.
Just go to other boards tho, they are more consistent in their good threads of their fields
2004. Windows XP was the shit.
Memes were beginning to get more popular, and /b/ was relentless with trolling. 4Chan was a bit less autistic but still pretty bad.
Fun, only nerds and weeaboos back then. You all ruined it. You ruined it even worse by letting tumblr triggered faggots take over the moderation. Like watching my homeland burn down. Fuck the lot of you.
Let me also list, actual discussions were had on /b/.
Mods joined in too, but a lot of good people left this place because it's just really dead now. Same posts, but it just didn't have the fun it used to. I still frequent from time to time just to find some gold.
are you seriously calling our monthly sjw campaigns stupid ?
Remember guys you can't type [Peanut Butter]
it'll end up spelling
Total newfag here, I've been here since 2005. I still need to LURK MOAR.
I remember when /b/ was a raw, elemental force of directionless hate and sewage. Pissing in an ocean of piss.
I remember cp threads being the norm, not the rare exception.
I remember when we raided a cutting site... "cutting buddies" and we raided it so hard we crashed their server and they literally never came back. We kicked someone off the internet. They deserved it, and it was glorious.
I remember raiding "family friendly" sites with gore and scat and CP and Delicious Ron.
I remember when /b/ was the font from which all memes spread across the internet.
I remember the board literally moving so fast that a thread would be born and die in less than an hour, and the only way you knew it was there was the OC that you had experienced with your fellow Magnificent Bastards.
Now instead of raids we get bananas.
Now instead of CP we get "claim you're celebrity waifu"
Now instead of disgusting, offensive raw unfiltered shit we get "dubs thread post your dubs"
Now instead of original content flowing from /b/ and spreading across the internet, we get reposts from 9gag and tumblr.
There's no dark beauty, no malignant humor, just a bunch of underage useless faggots spamming bananas, "YLYL" and fucking triforces.
/b/ is disney.
/b/ only flows in the direction of the majority, so this is obviously what you wanted. You voted for this. you decided this.
4chan died when this guy appeared before that there were so many creative anons producing OC then it became fashionable to be uncreative and anyone's contribution was accepted.
Not just 4chan, the whole internet was fucked when people without an education or any talent were allowed to log on.
1 september 1939 when we raided poland
pic related it's me goku
2007. Posted noodz of my fine ass high school gf along with her phone number after she cheated on me. Even though she received the harassment I wanted her to, I did learn early on that 4chan is NYPA.
Fucking tears man. I know these feels. I miss the great trollings.
I miss Chris Chan's retarded autism.
I miss the fun we'd have. Watching /b/ how it is now makes me upset. I only like to lurk really anymoar.
It looks like 2008/2009.
Boxxy and Girugamesh were frequently posted things, so that must be around that time.
I swore it was earlier than that, but I can't think of any memes before graduating HS in 2007.
Good for you. participating in raids and everything. I bet you like gore pics too.
The funniest was when I left a comment under a right wing nazi females name, admiring a black man, then another user said "gosh I am shocked" and I then replied under the NaziFems name "just because I am a Republican does not mean I don't like my "coffee" in the morning black"....fuck she freaked out wrote her life story about how someone else hacked in and posted that shit and accused the newspaper, the newspaper launched a BIG investigation and then published that they hired a security firm and her allegations were unfounded. I sent that bitch to Kafkesque hell. haha
>Year 1999, literally one of the few PCs in our little village, even got phone connection for internet.
>Bad winter and shit happens
>Don't touch internet for like 12 straight years
>Missed out on so much shit
Being called a newfag doesnt even hurt anymore
Kek. Welcome to 4chan, newfag.
4chan becoming shittier is almost a meme, that`s what everybody always said ever since this shit was made, truth is it`s always kinda been just this...assholes sharing porn and gore and talking about their virginity
been here since 06.. far too long but I can't let the cancer win
>but I can't let the cancer win
and everyone said: AMEN
I think they call it leet speak or something
06' they trolled my warcraft friend back in vanilla.. he kept saying 4chan was flaming him and sending pizzas to his house and tying up his phone lines. He said stay away from them they're dangerous.. so of course I had to check it out.. sadly that /b/ is long dead.
Nobody was a republitard.. don't know how that actually made it's way on here. Dumb millennials.
2003. It was slow and the threads where pretty much no holds. It was nice.
When I first came i heard about this website on funnyjunk in 2007 and came here to see what it was like. It had many funny maymays and I enjoyed it much more than funnyjunk which was essentially trash. So I lurked here for like 3 years and then started posting.
normalfags get out of my board reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
>When did you first come to 4chan?
2006, if I recall.
>What was it like?
There were lots of posts of this image.
There was a lot more taking a meme or an idea and ringing the changes on it.
/b/ liked cats.
When I was sixteen this lumberjack looking nineteen year old guy who was dating my friend showed me the lesbian porn on there, and I scrolled through it while they had sex next to me then we had an arkward shit threesome.
hold on a minute!
I think he has a point!
Not that b is any worse, or better, right now, it has changed.
We could get philosophical about this shit; "/b/, An Analogy of Life" by Sedrick F. Wurmsworth
>Memes were beginning to get more popular,
I doubt that. maybe the autistic shit like "desu", but I remember myspace didnt even get big until 2005, and there werent many memes around back then. I dont even think the word "meme" existed yet
Can't remember exactly when, but a few months after there was a craze for world cams and idiots kicking over bins, still remember spending like 4 hours wasting new york waiting for some OP to knock over a bin
Everyone on that chart and up to about 2012 is always a newfag but all of YOU are the cancer
Please consider an heroing immediately with gun/helium tank apparatus
Only cancerous faggots complain about cancer on /b/. It's an anonymous image board, not your secret club.
You're not fucking cool for coming here. You're not fucking cool for knowing what is in vogue to post here.
>2012 a friend showed me 4chan and i think its a shit site
>2015 got autistic behaviour, site still shit but im on it now.
>this thread is still alive
alright that's enough people. Clear out, nothing to see here. Move along
I miss Heaven
I was in the CC since 02. Still post on cc.cc once in a while. Site still exists, but mostly dead now. Just some of the newer users and once in a while a blast from the past will show up and make a post. I haven't made any real Flashs in a while.
> you are not welcome unless you spent 8+ years of your life on a Taiwanese handmade fleshlight discussion forum
Seriously when will you just stop bitching ?
That clock shit was retarded as hell. I never got that but I guess I never was supposed to.
Also advice dog didn't kill /b/. Boxy did, and that guy who makes a thread about her literally the same time every day should be killed.
Daily reminder that everyone itt who claims to be an oldfag is a newfag, like everyone else on this website. Oldfags have obviously left this cancerous place as soon as we all came here. Stop falling for all this bait.
The Clock Crew wasn't supposed to be understood. It was pretty much just an excuse to piss off Jewgrounds users and it worked. Then it became too much about serious business and art and stopped being fun.

Took me 5 years to stop lurking and start posting
Been here since '05, don't care for the newfag oldfag dichotomy
It used to be mostly gore/scat/tubgirl/goatse/BME Pain Olympics. The word Troll was used exclusively for cleverly tricking a target into believing something/doing something stupid; and for /b/ raids and ops. Used to say it a lot in High School and people would look at me weird; now it's used for any low-effort low-returns harassment
