What happened to all those actual adults on 4chan during 2003-2006? Or were we all just teens claiming to be adults in order not to be banned?
>Or were we all just teens claiming to be adults in order not to be banned?
it was this
wasn't the site owner himself underage for a couple years while this place was up?
this site is filled with underage, every time there's a thread about it most people claim to have first started coming here when they were underage
I'd guess as people get older they just have more shit to do and don't have the energy for shitposting/arguing, so older people tend to lurk or drop the site for long periods of time.
i was posting thread on here in 2011 when i was 14, faggot
just started legalposting in june
>the site owner
don't you dehumanize him you bastard
>14 year olds from 2011 can post here
>most people reading this wont even know what that is
Eh those type of things aren't that unknown. Fuck that meme in a sense is still going with the "reddit" stuff you see on /tv/
I haven't had a chance to post this picture in over 6 years
> anyone over 25
> on 4chan
Everyone here is a teenager or has the mental age of one.
To be completely honest I just turned 18 this January and have been posting underage for longer than I have "legally"
I started 4chan as a /mu/ user when I was 16 about 2 years ago and came to /r9k/ around this time last year just before the sm*g p*pe posters started rolling in
I know of three other people who post on 4chan. one who is 19 and is a active /mu/ and /fa/ poster, another who is 18 and uses /a/ and a third who is /19/ and occasionally frequents /mu/ and /r9k/
I don't think younger kids use this site as much as the meme era has died down
/b/ was extremely popular when I was 12-13 and loads of kids in my class used it besides me
>see a little kid
>realize I've been shitposting on a Korean Kimchi board longer than he's been alive
>there will be kids born in the 2000s posting on 4chan soon
this is a weird feel
Polls for the thread to find out the real answers
Even underage b8 can vote and get away with it
Trollface and bachelor frog came later, and they were almost always used in their proper contexts, and not just as generic characters for any joke you can imagine. Pedobear was older and used a lot too, but again it was almost always in his proper context too, which was pedophilia. Pepe and Wojak are pasted on everything, which is why you see things that make no sense, like the Pepe Trump variant.
moot said posting didn't even increase during the summer
It's pretty much true, summer is just a dumb scapegoat
20-29 year olds have this thing where they can't accept that most people their age act like children
it's sad really.
>tfw thinking "I start coming here in 2010, so I'm not exactly an oldfag"
>tfw that was 6 years ago
They're still around, they just either left 4chan for better imageboards like wizardchan or don't bother attaching personal details to their posts because they're not teenaged attention whores anymore.
If you started browsing after 2006, you're a newfag.
I was 15 when I started browsing 4chan in 2006, but I actually fucking lurked moar. I didn't post until 2008. I still think this shithole would be a better place if it only allowed users to post after 2 years of browsing.
You also knew who the newfags were because they would do shit like post their age if they were underageb& or repost the same unfunny fucking memes (efg, milhouse, longcat.)
I hate you faggots for ruining this already shitty website.
