We are expressing ourselves the same way. 4chan has always gone to lengths to preserve a culture distinct from the mainstream internet. Whenever something gets picked up by Reddit or Facebook or wherever it stops appearing on 4chan pretty quickly. It's why you almost never see "for the lulz" anymore.

>>116456581

4chan's whole thing is default anonymity. But how do you create an distinct community without persistent identity? Through particular words and phrasings, corruptions, mores and terminology. And while they're developed on 4chan, posters use them elsewhere. If you're familiar with them, they jump out at you.

Things developed to maintain an anonymous community end up identifying its members.

Also I love you Hibiki. I love you.

>>116456581
I've wondered if the reason we stop using certain words/phrases/memes/etc is because they're just old and tired to us by the time they've filtered down to the rest of the internet, or do we see their use by others as a sign that it's old and busted.
>>
>>116457102
I come to this board mainly for the shits and giggles. I haven't tried an anime forum since I was 12, but most of them were the usual shit like: OMG NARUTO IS THE BEST ANIME EVAH xD, RIGHT GUYS? And the posters that didn't type like this were usually mods or the people that rode the mod's dicks.

/a/ is a little bit more tolerable, but I mean there's shitposting in every goddamn board. You can't type the word "big" in a post without 400 retards baneposting the thread to hell. But alas, I digress; even with all its shit, /a/ is a pretty decent board to discuss certain anime (HxH, RK,CCS, hell even NGE sometimes).

The best forum to discuss, anything really, is still face to face. It's just too sad that liking anime is seen as "weird" because of the people in the forums that I despise. Those are the ones that wear capes to classes and the fucking headbands and shit, they give everyone a bad name.
>>
>>116457724
Because any joke dies once you use it enough. And it just so happens we use jokes so fast that they're dead when it leaks down to the other communities. I mean who really likes seeing the same joke for months, it gets old and stale
>>
>>116457667
Only retards and newfriends would believe he actually did the getting for /a/'s good
>>
>>116457904
/a/, and 4chan as a whole really, can be a lot more relaxing. I see other forms where if someone doesn't like a show they sort of tip-toe around saying that they don't like it because god forbid you express an opinion. Or worse if it's a show specific forum, then you can't say anything bad about the show at all. Really I feel like discussions are better here because no one is holding back.
That is on the off chance people are discussing things and not just shitposting, which can still be pretty funny.
>>
>>116457724
I would guess that the best way to tell is to look at what kind of reaction they elicit. Ones that get hostility, such as most emoticons, probably do so because they are popular in other forums -- they're actively discouraged. Others that are met with indifference probably just faded away over time -- ISHYGDDT is the best example I can think of off the top of my head.

Yes, exactly. I mean you can't ever expect to discuss a KyoAni work seriously here, the thread will eventually turn into: which x would u fug?

But even in the midst of all the shitposting, you can still legitimately post why some show or other is shit. And I know people complain about mods here, but these guys are saints compared to other places. As you stated, a dissenting opinion is enough of a reason to get banned because of those fags' power trips.

Exactly. The conditions that gave rise to it no longer exist. It is now irrelevant. Similarly, I haven't seen 'Sage goes in all fields' in... I don't even know how long, probably because of what >>116459317 pointed out.

It's probably my favorite example of culture rising then declining based on local conditions.

It certainly gave the board culture more personality, sage. But it also brought about a kind of shitpost of its own.

Fair enough but those boards were created/renovated to accomodate reddit and it's where blogposting literally takes place and is, arguably, encouraged. /mu/, say what you will about eternal spam of memes, at least used to have tenets and standards when approaching music, now most of the time you'll see people posting their iTunes in music player threads and then getting upset when told to use other alternatives like Foobar.
>>
>>116463931
Indeed. For example, /jp/ may be faggots, but I much prefer their autistic shitposting to clueless normals.

>>116464008
It's true that many shitty boards have started as containment zones to remove problems from certain other boards or the site as a whole. Still, while it it usually solves a problem in the short term it appeals to a whole new userbase that slowly trickles in on the site and starts to spread and fester.

Let me tell you, my friend, we were once all juvenile newfags.

>>116464144
That post about why normalfags are bad sums up my thoughts entirely. Without the autistic, fucked up kind of people we all are, there's no originality, it's just the same as every other fucking site

/ck/ has been the same since it opened. I wouldn't worry about it.

I consider it long enough to not be called a newfag I guess? Anyway, that I can't deny, though I never posted the first year I went here. I admittedly only came here for the cute anime grills.

Anyone remembers when the internet was good?
>>
>>116464511
Well porn is still available and I don't get thrown into prison for indulging with it, so I guess there's still that going for the internet.

/a/ is awful right now, but it could be worse. The quality drop in this board is nothing compared to what has happened to /sp/ in not even a year.

I can still play make-believe that I am really anonymous in the internet so it's still liveable.

>i consider it long enough to not be called a newfag

If it's anything under 5 years, no.

I think you're alright, just for the fact that you lurked a decent amount of time.
>>
>>116464511
No, but I remember when the internet was slightly more enjoyable and not so much of a vapid commercial shitfest.

If I run tired of posting, will just stop, because I'm lazy.

You are Imouto-chan, the cutest little sister anybody could ever ask for! Every thing you do, you do for your precious older brother, Onii-chan!

As long as you can remember, you've had a silly habit of entering Onii-chan's room while he was sleeping and jerking him off -- in a loving, sisterly manner, of course.

But this night is different! During your regular night-time pole polishing, Onii-chan wakes up! He immediately notices your hand down his boxers.

"I-Imouto-chan?!" He cries.

What do?

[] Be tsundere towards him. "I-It's not like I want to jerk you off or anything!"

[] Show your yandere side and kill your parents. They're in your way of claiming Onii-chan's heart!

[] Get down to business and try to fuck him.

[x] Show your yandere side and kill your parents. They're in your way of claiming Onii-chan's heart!

"I-Imouto-chan, what are you doing?"

"I'm jerking you off, Onii-chan." You smile. "We could makes this mutual if you want."

"There's no way our parents would approve of this love, Imouto-chan. It's forbidden!"

You eyes narrow.

"So if Mom and Dad were out of the picture, you'd be OK with this? If it were just me and Onii-chan, we could love each other however we wanted?"

Onii-chan shrugs.

You immediately flee from the room, the pitter-patter of your cute little feet echoing in the hallway. You slide open the drawer and pull a cleaver out, shining in the moonlight like every spooky cliche ever written.

"Mother... Father... You musn't get in the way of our love."

You swing open the door of your parent's bedroom, cleaver raised above your head.

"Imouto-chan?!" You father sits up. "What are you--"

"ONII-CHAN IS MINE!"
>>
>>116464818
You pounce onto the bed and in one swift strike, you summon impossible strength and decapitate your father. Obviously, there's no way your mother is sleeping quietly through this. In just a split second, you swing the cleaver behind you and strike her in the head.

You yank the cleaver out of your mother's head like it's a chopping block. The blood running down the side of your weapon, you quickly lap it up. The stench of blood fills your nostrils, causing your eyes to roll back in ecstasy.

"This is the taste of those who defy our love. I shall never forget it."

What do?

[] Wear your parents as meat suits so Onii-chan is none the wiser.

[] Tell Onii-chan you should take a bath together -- in your parent's blood!

[] Onii-chan sure is popular at school. It's time to take out the competition!

I wouldn't worry either way. There's nothing wrong with newfags, we just dislike them because it's proof that we're not kids anymore and a new generation is taking over. You seem like a nice guy, though, so I'm glad you're the kind of person that found this board.
>>
>>116464878

You quickly return to Onii-chan's room, who is rather curious about your blood-soaked cleaver.

"Imouto-chan! Did you --"

You grab his still erect cock.

"This is my cock, Onii-chan. Give it to someone else and I'll chop it off."

You return to your room and wrap the cleaver in your bedcloth. You'll dispose of it later. In the meantime, you need a new weapon, so you return to the kitchen drawer.

You choose the corkscrew. A perfect weapon. Not as heavy duty as a cleaver, but great for that slow, agonizing pain.

You think of that obnoxious girl that's always clinging to Onii-chan, A-ko. What a bitch -- and the worst part it, Onii-chan might actually like her! She needs to be taken care of.

You put on your protective gear and mount your tricycle, beginning the long pedal to A-ko's house. You've trailed Onii-chan as he walked her home many times.

Adrenaline flowing, you petal faster and faster. A-ko's head will be yours!

Parking your glittery tricycle block away from A-ko's house, you climb the front gate and make your way to the second-floor window, where you suspect her bedroom is. Sure enough, you see A-ko is sleeping soundly. --But how to get inside?

What do?

[] Smash through the window. This is an all-out attack!

[] Try and sneak through the front door. You know they've got a key under the mat.

Does anyone have a pic of that "Lain is a mecha" thread from earlier this year

>>116464923
The problem with newfags however is that they force their beliefs on /a/ instead of learning the culture inherent in the board. And whenever they're pointed out for their mistakes, they rage and act like entitled kids. I'm not fully against the new generation taking over or whatever, but I am against the board's already low quality getting worse.

And thanks for that, I do need a positive boost right now.

>>116464676
I blame the stagnation in internet service. It's just too expensive to have a decent site with good content.

That's because they are
>>
>>116465112
It's entirely possible to be new and lurk too, it's just that those kind of newfags don't stick out as much. Being new in and of itself isn't bad, but showing your new is.
>>
>>116465259
Oh right. But it is still possible to not act like it here isn't it? Like what >>116465283 said.
>>
>>116465283
At the end of the day, there will always be vocal newfag retards who will eventually get bored and leave, and there will be newfags who we don't even know are here because they're lurking. It's a good balance, because the obnoxious newfags draw all the flak away from the lurkers, and the lurkers transition into good anons, and you'd never think "newfag" when talking to them. I'm happy with how the cycle works, to be honest. Give the lurkers a few meta threads every once in a while to let them speak their minds.
>>
>>116465451
Heh, it's like you saw through me.
>>
>>116465112
When I was just starting out as a newfag back 9 years ago, I did a lot of shit that I shouldn't have and learned from my mistakes. I had already lurked for a good half year but then I realized I had to lurk for a whole 'nother year before posting again.

I really doubt that a lot of the newer ones today even attempt to learn form their mistakes and adapt. I doubt even more that a lot of the newfags even stick to the site at all and treat it more like a temporary thing.

It's really funny too because I still consider myself a newfag even after all these years.
>>
>>116465536
Sort of what I was trying to say >>116465451

A lot of the obnoxious blatant newfags won't stick to the site, but because we see them frequently, we create this monolithic being of "newfag" in our heads, like they're all secretly hiding in every thread waiting to introduce the cancer to it. They shit up a thread here, make a retarded post there, and that's it. They move on somewhere else, because they have no attachment to this site.
>>
>>116461392
I can't see any variation of this without associating it with the Denko-chan saga.

I know exactly what you mean. The more you know, the less you feel like you know and all that.

Which reminds me of the matter of OPs. It may just be my incorrect assumption, but I feel like the longer an anon has browsed, the less likely it is that this anon makes threads.

I remember making several threads just in my first weeks back in 09, but now I start like 1 thread every half a year or so, and only when I have something concrete I want to discuss. Perhaps it varies from person to person, but I can't shake the feeling that most OPs are, as the saying goes, faggots. Especially in the case when creating multiple threads for currently airing shows or other such pointless garbage.
>>
>>116465536
i have been on 4chan 6 years and i probably have about 100 posts
>>
>>116465698
But when there is an influx of newfags from rebbit and somewhere else ti's hard to deny their existence. Anyway, I do hope that what you guys said are true.

In my case, I did lurk for a year and posted only after that, but I still dumbly posted my email. Made me more reluctant to post here though, that's why I prefer lurking.

>>116465871
I haven't created my own thread, ever. I do however thought of starting some bird threads but it never materialized.
>>
>>116465871
I'm not sure if that applies to everyone, but I will agree that it has happened to me. The only time I remember making threads was back when Yozakura Quartet Hana no Uta was airing and nobody was talking about it so I adopted 4 different writing styles and talked to myself in the threads for hours going on and on about how great the sound effects were and all that shit.

I'm just too lazy for this shit now.
>>
>>116465871
I agree fully with this. In my first month here I made over 10 threads, all of them rather stupid ones now that I look back on it. Ironically, trying to fit in by posting more only makes you stand out even more. Now I just sit back and wait for people to make threads because I'm lazy.
>>
>>116465871
Currently airing show threads are just generals. I rarely make threads anymore, unless i've just finished a series and I want to hear opinions on it.

>>116465950
I couldn't even estimate how many posts I've made. I didn't even lurk a full year at the time, either. I only waited about 3 months, but by that time I only really got into arguments about things I was heavily into, like Eva. I used to be much more fucking vocal than I am now.

>>116466045
>I adopted 4 different writing styles and talked to myself in the threads for hours going on and on about how great the sound effects were and all that shit.

Fuck, I know how that goes. I still do that in threads where nobody replies to my post. Shit, we're all just a bunch of fucking losers, aren't we?
>>
>>116466060
I think the introduction of the catalog also influenced this sort of behavior. I don't need to make a new thread now the old one is off the front page. Just use the catalog
>>
>>116466045
>>116466116
Well at least I can honestly say I've never samefagged ever.
I am now seriously considering how many different posters there have actually been in the slower moving threads.
>>
>>116466203
>implying you're not talking to yourself right now
>>
>>116465950
I've posted even less than that, though I've been here less as well.

>>116466116
>Shit, we're all just a bunch of fucking losers, aren't we?
Too late for you to recognize that anon.
>>
>>116466116
>Shit, we're all just a bunch of fucking losers, aren't we?

Hey, talking to myself makes me feel at ease, especially when I do such a great job that nobody ever finds out.
>>
>>116466131
Oh yeah the catalog really changed everything. It is sort of sad that it sort of shifted the entire site to a more lurking and leave culture than a lurking, learning, and posting one.
>>
>>116466045
I have a real hard time talking with myself, it just feels wrong to me. On 4chan that is, I talk to myself vocally all the time.

But I suppose samefagging actual discussion is preferable to silent image dumps as some anons tend to do. Though that practice is far less common today with captcha and increased post timers in mind.

>>116466355
It did change the site a lot for better and for worse, but it would probably be maddening to go back to the page system.

One very concrete improvement is the abolition of the bump posts(Except for on /r/ or the ever so fastly moving /b/, but who cares?). It used to be that your thread had practically no chance of surviving without some sort of samefagging, since it could just blast by the first page without anyone noticing and entering the thread. With hundreds of anon lurking the catalog these days it's almost impossible not to attract at least one or two posters at least.
>>
>>116466366

I actually remember a few threads in question where I would post screenshots of a show from MPC the first few times and then in VLC for one shot as a different person. Then nobody pointed it out so I did myself as a third person which would cause an influx of people just going >vlc just so that the thread would get attention.

Man I don't think I am insane, but it really seems like it now that I start actually looking back on my actions.
>>
As an oldfag who's been here for eleven years, the only time I really say anything anymore is to shitpost. It makes me laugh, at least.
>>
>>116466499
I used the search function all the time. Just include the keywords you need in the OP and people will come. I would never give up the convenience of the catalog though, especially now that you can't delete a mistyped OP.
