Okay /b/astards, let's have a thread where you can ask any question you've ever wanted to know about 4chan and /b/ but were too afraid to ask for fear of being called a newfag, summerfag, newfriend etc. People who know must answer without shaming.
originally 4chan was only an anime imageboard, and the only 2 boards were the anime board /a/ and the board for everything else.
Since no other letters were used and no other boards existed, I'm guessing it was the logical letter to assign to it, since /b/ doesn't really stand for anything.
A certain conspiracy theory states the board was named in homage to the famous newgrounds submission of the same name by Strawberryclock, but I'm guessing everyone here is too young to remember that.
Does anybody know?
I mean, I figure it is used if you want to delete one of your own posts but why are they on all of the comments and not just on your own? There must be moar to it that I don't get.
If you comment like you are right now then you bump the thread.
If you sage, you can comment without it being bumped.
At least that is what I gather.
Kinda like how I sage Brandons threads just so I can tell him "Fuck You" without bumping his shit
I never understood what the fuck is up with that shit. I copy pasted once just for the fuck of it.
I think it is one of the ways they can catch a newfag. Kinda like fingerboxes
I don't know if it still works, but noko in the e-mail field used to zap you out of the thread back to the main page. I heard that back in the early days you could only stay in the thread by typing nonoko into the field.
nook sage would also make your sage invisible since people tend to get mad on some of the boards if you sage.
Good god I hated that shit. If you forgot to type noko or whatever when you made a thread, you'd have to search the catalog for the thread you just made before it 404'd
if you click the right boxes you will be teleported to 1492.
To bad the earth will not be in the spot for 500 years. so you better bring some air. and a jacket, space can be cold.
why does everyone on /b/ abuse the words newfag, summerfag etc? I don't see what gain they get except feeling good for themselves for being an oldfag if they even are one. 2nd question, I've been on /b/ on and off for about 6 years, never had a collection of images to contribute. how did you guys get into collecting images?
if you post bump, it increases the ranking of the thread, and therefore shows up more as it ranks higher. Timestamp is when you write the date on a piece of paper to confirm that the pictures you are posting are yours, for instance. For example, without a timestamp when a femanon is asked for tits she could just post some from the internet
whenever the thread is shit, you may spiderman
And yeah, just put this symbol > and all subsequent text is green. Greentexting is used when recalling a story or replying to someone's comment by using their own argument
Bump predates 4chan
it is an acronym
Basically bringing your thread to the top of the forum queue.
Alt+30 for triangle, Alt+255 for blank character
Spiderman isn't even old
SS refers to starting strength, a beginner level weightlifting plan. Not unique to /fit/, it's used in many weightlifting forums.
Anonymity is moot's trump card. He's not responsible for the user actions on the website.
This is bait.
You can spiderman a thread when you want it to live, but you can't think of anything of value to add to it. It's better than posting "addfajlk;ad" and such, like if you're waiting for OP to return with timestamped boobs.
Also, all wincest threads are spidermanable.
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.
>Not a newfag, just asking.
When did you first see it? Did you take the b8?
How many variations of it have you seen?
Will post pirate edition
this thread is going to make newfags harder to find. I think this thread has to be dead
>pic very related
Based is not a 4chan thing. It is something stupid teenagers say to say something is good. It is the opposite of the word "Debased" and has taken off with rappers for some reason.
This guy and his girlfriend. I think they've split now. Ignore their posts.
I once stumbled upon the mega reddit thread with like every single one they could find, so a majority of them I guess
First saw it on reddit as well (thank god I never went back there)
Never took the b8, too obvious
Trips demands answer. Lurking means monitoring a thread without posting
Not as far as i know, the picture filled up two whole pages of scrolling so would've been difficult to screencap anyway
its better than letting them remain clueless cancer
loli is pictures of toddlers, but the way to make it legal is that the pictures have been drawn, usually anime style
Yeah, someone told you already that alt + 30 is a triangle. So, hold down the alt key on your keyboard, then use the number pad and type in 3 then 0 then release alt. 30 like so ▲
Then do the same with alt 255 to insert blank characters. The problem is, triforcing is borken as of like 2 years ago or some shit. There is a different character you put in before the 255's to get it going. I am too newfag to have figure out what the new blank character is.
everytime this is happening if I try to triforce

I think I was in the first Dan thread. It was just a raid of Omegle where everyone just introduced themselves as Dan.
It played upon the old 'flash tango' omegle zombie game that /b/ played/plays.
Introducing Dan induced rage in Omegle users because they thought they were only talking to asshole bots or something and it was a way to recognise other /b/tards in the initial raid

i know right? people here whine endlessly about newfags but the thing is, userbases dont last forever. this one surely wont what with the number of /b/tards out there who do stupid illegal stuff and go to prison with no internet access or just straight up kill themselves and the fact that everyone moves on past using the internet on a daily bases eventually. at some point the userbase has to cycle through. either you educate the newfags about memes and board culture, or the memes are forgotten and the board culture is lost. if all you do is complain about newfaggotry then you just contribute to the problem. we need to assimilate them, not alienate them.
How long has Heaven been around?
Been here about 1 1/2 years, still new fag?
Why does heaven have ban immunity? Does burger James Bond mean i 69d your girl?
I'm probably new fag for asking if I'm newfag
>inb4 heaven replies
Mache alles guy was a real thing, posted timestamps and shit. Sometimes the threads are him irl, but usually its copypasta. not sure how long it's been happening but I lurked a thread with the real dude once.
Based is a /pol/ meme usually meaning a person spoke publicly regarding a belief they hold. Not sure of the origin before that.
