How long have you been on 4chan for, and what was it that led you to this shithole?
We're all anonymous here so theres no need to lie, if you joined up last week from reddit then just say that, I want to see what spread of people we actually have here
For me I first found out about it in 2006 when I was denied access to the lido deck on habbo due to aids, but I was too scared to dedicate myself to it completely until about 2008 and it's all been downhill from there
>7 years of my life wasted
I can't remember how long I've known about 4chan, but I only got non-dialup internt access on a non-crappy computer in 2008. Read a lot about this place from ED. I've been browsing since fall 2014.
It was in 2008, l didn't really know about 4chan, only came here from time to time but l was like 15 back then so l'd just come here from time to time. Once l turned 17, l became a /b/tard and picked up lifting after seeing a thread about it, it's been a long time now. But don't ler anyone fool you, kids, this website isn't full of "redditor newfags xD", it's always been shit, feel free to call me a faggot l don't care :^)
I think late 2006 or early 2007, thought /b/ was really cool and edgy with all the raid threads and actual funny memes. Years later I was sick of all the cancerspam and found this board, with all the pathetic beta wizards who I laughed at. But eventually I began to relate to them and started to become.. not a robot but at least a cyborg. And here we are today.
I have to say I haven't been on 4chan for that long of a time. I joined around end of 2013.
Although the majority of my childhood was being on the computer ever since I was 7 I would be playing something instead of going out and playing with kids my age.
my friend browsed r/circlejerk and then switched to 4chan and I thought greentexts were hillarious so I swapped over, I wrote a greentext and got called a normie and a newfag and I fucking hate everyone here. So It was my goal to become anything but a newfag
I probably would have joined when i was underage but at the time I was kinda scared of this site because I thought it was filled with CP, illegal stuff and would get me in trouble.
I even thought I would have to get a proxy or vpn to just go on this site
>turns out its just a anime site filled with a bunch of degenerates like me
heard about it from some bbc doc about anonymous when I was 14, this was about 2010/11
went on /b/ out of curiosity, first thread I saw was a necrophilia thread and my mum had died only a couple months earlier which at first fucked with me quite a bit
After a couple months my curiosity got the better of me and I came back, saw it wasn't anything particularly special, but was funny enough to teenage me
Eventually stopped browsing /b/ at all about a year ago, maybe longer
/r9k/ is definitely my home board
that's weird that people don't know of these anymore, not in a patronising way but they used to be quite big
no surprise rule 34 is still kicking around
My friend has been trying to get me to be a /b/tard for years, started me out on /his/ cause i like that shit, after awhile I tried /b/ and stopped because it was dumb, recently got back into it cause /r9k/ is a nice median between /b/ and reddit
>first time around
Back in 2004 I was 12 and was the typical outcast who spent every waking minute on the internet playing vidya.
I didn't really pay much attention to the name of the website but it would always get linked on message boards, for a while I just learnt to stay clear of it as it had bad photos.
2008 and project chanology was in full swing. I have to admit I was pure /b/ tier cancer at that point, but it did open my mind to the other boards here. Not everything had to be about gore and 1337 trolling.
>third and final time
Late 2011 and my life was starting to go to shit, I still remain a kissless virgin to this day and have no friends. This is when I started to take the "redpill" about realize that genetics are the only things that matter.
And that is how /r9k/ got stuck with me, I've been here ever since with a new low being reached everyday.
But 2010 was the very beginning of the cancer when tumblr started to swarm in
I found 4chan around 2007,redirected here a few times from the long lamented Daily Rotten. I used to hunt GIFs to deconstructhe and import into Second Life to sell as animated paintings. Lots to see here, but only recently began to post stuff here. Always a surprise around each page...
Found out about it from gen[m]ay but around the same time. 2006 was a good year.
Nearly nine years. Discovered encyclopaedia dramatica in my last year of high school and then came to 4chan from there. Those were the days of caturday, desu spam and other juvenile shit. Its been quite a big part of my life and I get a bit sentimental when I think about it.
First I was in it for the porn and stupid meme humour but I genuinely believe anonymity leads to the best discussions and attracts the most interesting people. I can remember a lot of of posts over the years that have changed the way I think about stuff in a fundamental way
Been on this site since at least 2009-2010, so I am the cancer. I actually heard about it a couple years earlier from a classmate back at school when FBF was the dankest of memes. Remembered the shit he said a couple years later, found this shithole, became a massive newfag, realised i'm such a faggot holy shit, stopped being a massive newfag. Now I find my self typing out a post and just deleting it/backing out of the thread. Most posts I make are shitposts now.
probably around 2011 or so
I still consider myself a newfag
>Watch xxHomerSimpsonxx Pony Thread Simulators about 2-3 years ago
>Get interested in /mlp/
>frequent /mlp/ exclusively for about a year
>start gaining interest in 4chan as a whole
>start frequenting /mu/ and /fit/ as well, while occasionally visiting other boards
Now the main board I visit is /mu/, I still frequent /mlp/ for entertainment, as well as visiting other boards such as this one.
Found 4chan in 2005. I found a folder on a random FTP that had a bunch of /b/ pics and it led me here.
Another 2006er here. Back when the place was full on and we didnt have normies spoiling everyones fun with the "edgy" "fedora" memes.
Was always a bit nervous opening 4chan in those days. Now I only get that feel from that other place, though its too inactive to bother with.
I started coming here in 2010 when I was still in high school and underage.
Feels weird to think I've been here almost exactly 6 years now.
>at first I thought pepe was a spinoff of foul bachelor frog and it wasn't for literally years that I realized they had completely separate origins
