Are there any 4chan historians on /qa/ that can tell me about old /n/ when it was a news board?

Old /pol/ legends recount how moot made /n/ as a news board somewhere around 2006, and then deleted it shortly afterward.
I'm not talking about /new/, which was made in 2010 and I'm not talking about /n/ - nature or the modern /n/ - transportation.

Can anyone here confirm this? Is there anyone here who was there at the time? Any screenshots? What was it like and why was it deleted? I've never even seen so much as a screenshot, and sites like ED don't have any information on it. When you ask on /pol/, some people act like they know but are probably just retelling the same old legend. Nobody seems to know anything specific.
/n/ - trains
/n/ - nature
/n/ news
/new/ - news(co-opted by swarmfront)
/n/ - transportation

/new/ and /r9k/ get deleted, the chon is born
/pol/ and /r9k/ get brought back, the chon slowly turns into cripplechan
Did you ever post on any of the first 3 you listed?
>/n/ - trains
Is that where that old F0PH meme came from? It was a little before my time.
I wonder if anyone remembers when /g/ was Guro

Actually, I sort of wonder about the names of boards now, I know that /g/ is technology because technology in Japanese is Gijutsu (similar to how the weapons board is /k/), but then again, other boards are named after their subject's topic's english name

It's sorta like moot liked using Japanese phrases for board acronyms early on, but after a while said "Fuck it" and dropped that acronym naming convention convention, then again, it was the days when 4chan was to be a direct English counter part to Futaba
I was primarily a /new/fag, so I'll drop some screenshots of /new/ that influenced /pol/ early in its creation. I have a bit of /n/ but its mostly from the textboards.

I'm thinking why there are no records of /n/ is due to its low population and moot randomly axing it when no one gave a shit about the board.

brb gotta find them
Does /n/ originally being for trains follow this naming standard? What is the japanese word for trains? what about the word for news? I don't know when /g/ stopped being guro and modern /g/ was made, but it seems like by the time he made /n/ - nature he had started using english naming standards.
>I'm thinking why there are no records of /n/ is due to its low population and moot randomly axing it when no one gave a shit about the board.
I go back to /new/ as well and I've never seen even one screenshot in all that time for how often it gets namedropped on /pol/.
>Did you ever post on any of the first 3 you listed
no, I lurked /new/ a bit because swarmfront interested me though. it was shit.
>Is that where that old F0PH meme came from?
no, it was a way to combat furfag fridays.
I think at a certain point he just stopped giving a fuck, wanted to distance himself from futaba and carve his own path as an english imageboard.
it was probably around the time hackers on steroids became a thing
for the anon asking questions that could easily be remedied by a google search
Japanese word for trains is Ressha

>implying anyone ever actually went on /new/
though I have to say, the /new/sman was my favorite board-tan back when /co/ wasnt complete garbage
Yeah I deleted that because it was too unintentionally mean. Sorry I haven't had my morning coffee yet. My point was that tannasin wasn't that helpful though.
trains was originally /r/, and its spirit lives on in 1chan

Compared to today's standards, /new/ was a wellspring of OC and new memes.
I haven't seen much of that board tan, but if you're talking about the black haired /new/ tan, he was created a few days after the board was axed. It's a good strategy considering how much of a mess /new/ was.
>I have a bit of /n/ but its mostly from the textboards.

It's where the /n/ users went (unless some went to the VIP board kek). One was called /newpol/ (pretty much politics) and the other was /newnew/? Had something to do with World News.

Wow, I didn't even remember their names. I never went to those textboards, although I was an occasional poster on /sjis/. I always heard they were spam anyway. I really appreciate the /n/ screenshots though. I was mostly sure it really existed but there was always the seed of doubt in my mind until I saw these screenshots you're dumping. Keepgoing!

Pic related. moot added /soc/ after axing /r9k/ and /new/. The 4chumblr incident happened before moot decided to axe the two boards. There was even rumor that moot and the tumblr admin were hanging out.

>tumblr goes to /b/ and there's a bit of 4chumblr thing going on

I think moot was leaning towards something back in 2010 if /new/ and /r9k/ users weren't so vicious about their boards being removed.

Speaking of that, has a screencap of /g/ - Guro ever surfaced? I know it was short-lived and had little traffic, but screencaps of /l/ and /z/ have been posted before so you'd think there's at least ONE of /g/ somewhere.
tsk. i'll post more textboard caps tomorrow. gonna do stuff.
Thanks for what you posted so far, especially
proof of /n/ - news
I find it interesting that at some point moot dropped the japanese naming standard. I guess that was the point at which the site no longer catered exclusively to japanese culture.
I do kinda miss the days when a big chunk of the boards fell under the Japanese culture category on the front page (Even boards like /o/, /n and even /t/ and such), and back when you had the simple rule of "It has to be Japanese related" was on a bunch of them

Screencaps of boards like /g/ and /sm/ are probably never going to show up anywhere.
Why did moot really delete /r9k/?
My guess is that he did it because deep down he agreed with the misogyny, but he just couldn't admit that to himself.
It's like how homophobes are often closeted homsexuals.
