2005. Oldest memories I have are of planning Habbo Hotel raids on /b/ using my parents Windows ME computer in the middle of the night. Good times.

See you moot, regardless of what's happened over the years, I thank you for creating this website and giving people like me a place to exist.

Seems legit.

When did /jp/ split off /a/ again? I first started coming on 4chan around that time, I mostly just hung out on /b/ out of morbid curiosity.

Then I tried /a/, didn't like the experience, and stayed on /jp/ for a couple years until recently when the catalog got integrated and made browsing faster boards comfortable.

I'm turning 23 this year and I started browsing 4chan around 2009. So I dunno, around 16 or 17.

Come to think of it, I was in my first year of college back then, a pretty good time to gain new perspectives in life and 4chan delivered it to me.

I think I came to this site after a friend showed it to me (who still browses 4chan as well), I never thought I'd actually see the day when moot would step down as head admin of the site.
I guess he has better plans for the future but it still sucks seeing him go in light of everything, it just feels so sudden and unexpected.

I think I first came to 4chan around 2005-2006 cause I was linked to /b/.

I stayed because of the TTGL madness around 2007 and I will be extremely sad to have to up and move elsewhere.

Thank you, moot, for sticking it out for as long as you have. I've made a bunch of great friends here who I will be able to call friends until the Internet dies and permanently separates us.

'09 was my first year on /a/, methinks.

Browsed other boards for a couple of years before that. I've actually never spent more than a couple of minutes on /b/ in my entire life.

I was still in high school, so either 2005 or 2006. So basically my adult life has been spent sageing shitty RP threads and telling people to lurk more.

been browsing since 2013. yeah I know I'm a newfag but this really feels like the only place on the internet where I could discuss my passion with people who had a brain and go in depth on any of the series I loved or hated or just talk shit and discuss pointless things. I've been lurking for a while and I know quite a lot of board history but I can't even imagine how it must feel to be a long time user and have moot just suddenly leave.

anyway as much as you all love/hate everyone here, it's been fun these past 2 years for me and I've learnt a lot. don't think I'll ever find a place just as good as /a/, a place where I could visit and always enjoy myself and feel at home.

200...6? I honestly don't remember the exact year but I do remember that Rozen Maiden was hot shit in /a/ and DESUDESUDESU was the epic meme of the time, Code Gay ass was also a thing, never cared for it.

It's just been so fucking long and I somehow got completely engrossed in the entire fucking thing without having any perception of time of my stay here, it's just day after day after day of browsing it with the frail hope that I'll get 1 good day with a really long, awesome thread with interesting discussion. And it still happens. Pretty often.

28 years old, already starting to feel the age, still haven't read Dorohedoro.

I think it was 06 since I vaguely remember discussing higurashi on /a/ while it was airing, and that's the year it came out.

one of the great things about 4chan and probably contributed to its popularity is that it doesn't really matter if you are new as there is no post counts or profiles.

I must have started browsing in 2006. I was underage at the time, but at this point 4chan has been with me longer than any of my friends or acquaintances. It's been a fixture of my life and now I can scarcely imagine what life would be like without it.

I just hope moot's departure doesn't change 4chan too much. I love you guys and I wish moot all the best

Heard of /b/ and it's reputation in 2009 when I was a regular on the Minecraft Forum, checked out /a/ in 2010/11. I was scared at first as I was underage then, and didn't really understand all the jokes and nuances, but I remember wanting to fit in so I stayed quiet and stuck around.

I finally thought I fit in and started posting then immediately got a 2 month ban, I didn't know how to reset it because of a Static IP and decided I'd just morally wait it out. I had a lot of fun with you all, the /ak/ people in particular. A lot of angry, frustrated, tearful, happy and blissful emotions have been spent with you all and I don't think I could have spent my High School years better. You all felt like genuine people, not personas, and that's something that the world is missing. For better or worse, /a/ has helped turn me into the person I've wanted to become. I have a goal and purpose in life and /a/ played it's part in manifesting it.

From the bottom of my heart,
Thank you very much /a/.

I first came here on April 1st, 2005, April Fur's Day. That pretty much instantly kept me here.

I though for sure that I'd leave after a couple years, moot would sell the site or it'd go under on it's own, and I'd look back on it fondly years later.

It's been almost a decade, I thought for sure that something would happen on horse board on the 10th anniversary, but now that he's gone I don't even know anymore.
