im retarded and posted three times by accident trying to post this fucking picture
>decide to check the comments in some shiruka doujin
I wonder if it was actually him
>he hasnt been forgotten
Not sure if relevant, oldest pic i have saved.
I still remember. Even though both the circumstances and cause were fucking retarded it was pretty fun while it lasted.
Good thing I backed the winning horse though
these, and the old filename threads
>The intense Mn9 shitposting finally died out
>Now we just don't fucking care about the game anymore
I fully expect the game to bomb hard and to have a trillion threads about it on /v/, and every minor nitpick will be blamed on dina.
Who cares, he brought fun this to this board and also spoke quite a bit of truth at times
>all of his arguments boiled down to MUH FEELINGS.
Funny because if this >>323520915 is really him then he's proving you wrong. He was quite level headed and objective most of the time.
I disagree. His posts were colossal and rambled quite a bit, and a lot of times you could have summed up his arguments in a few sentences. The fact that /v/ put the guy on a pedestal is fucking embarassing.
"Lurking" is the most important part of becoming a successful poster. Each and every board has its own unique culture (generally rooted in 2channel one way or another). It is your job to learn it BEFORE making any posts. This process may seem daunting as boards do not have a set of defined parameters for posting. The only way to learn what sort of posts will be enjoyed is to spend time reading other posts. You will slowly learn all of the injokes, common posting style and sense of humor of the board as you read more and more posts. Do not make a post asking about the meaning behind an injoke or other questions about the board unless you absolutely have to as most users will be annoyed by this and simply tell you to lurk more. In addition to this, DO NOT make an introductory post or anything of the sort you should simply become a fellow poster overtime. Obviously this also means that, while posting as Anonymous, your work and your posts might never be directly attributed to you, regardless of the effort you put in them. Lurking can sometimes take only a week and other times take a few months. You'll know you're ready when you're understanding posts and finding the humor in them. Not all boards revolve around humor but there is always lurking to done just to make sure you aren't posting in a style that the others find annoying.
What about videos that aren't relevant anymore?
/v/ - Well-coordinated and heavily practiced Reddit team beaten by a rag-tag group of /v/irgins run by a furry tripfag and a BR with 140 ping.
/v/ as a whole is embarassing, has a hateboner for tumblr despite it being full of porn and a dislike of TvTropes despite their terms simplifying discussion.
Also, the board is autistic, but loves to call things autistic, and homophobic, but full of steam friends faggots, and loves 120Hz (or more) monitors, but also PS4s.
Entire board is bullshit.
At least with [s4s] you get quality shitposts.
You're right however you also ignore an important bit
he knew, speech is a powerful tool that when used correctly can gain you a lot of personality cult, which was his aim to ultimately turn the forums upside down
Politicians do the same thing all the time, only for personal gain.
Considering the way that 99% of this board behaves? No, no they do not remember him. Him or Lanced Jack. Or any of the trolls. They don't even know what trolling is on this board anymore.
When I was 12 I had my first sexual experience. At the time, I lived in a little suburb outside of Cleveland and anyway, the girl next door and I were really good friends. Our parents were both gone for the day and she was over playing Transformers with me. So anyway, we kinda got.. Bored I guess? And we started playing truth or dare, which turned into ‘you show me yours, I’ll show you mine". So anyway there I Was, 12 years old, heart pounding, blood rushing in my ears, and the chick (who was a year older than me actually) takes off her panties and hikes her little skirt up. so What did I do, you ask? I whistled for a cab, and when it came near, the license plate said “fresh” and there were dice in the mirror. If anything I could say that this cab was rare, but I thought “naw forget it, yo home to bel-air!” I pulled up to the house about seven or eight and I yelled to the cabbie “yo homes smell ya later!” Looked at my kingdom, I was finally there. To settle my throne as the prince of bel-air.
I barely visited /v/ 5-8 years ago but from what I remember before (and even for a while after) captchas this place was fucking spam central, with trip/avatarfags infesting the place and GET shit everywhere.
I like this place a lot more now even though it still has tons of flaws.
shit, posted an /a/ pic thinking it was a /v/ pic (I glazed over it).
not strictly /v/ related, but the time before the first dissidia was more memorable to me than japantime
>Kotick was the lesser evil
We never could have known.
The one thing that united all Animal Crossing players: A sleeping Alpaca.
Nobody posted Robot Unicorn Attack Yaranaika gay rainbow of OPEN YOUR EYEEEEEES yet?
This is only /v/ related because of the meme comic spinoffs from it. Too bad you ironically can't even post them anymore because neo4chan actually enforces NSFW strictly instead of as a courtesy. Sign of how times have changed.
Nah, of course I hate the shit that was responsible for /vg/ creation.
But I liked when there would be an SMT or New Vegas general, they were always very chill and relaxed.
The real issue with /vg/ is that it doesn't have people from /v/ in most threads. It's a huge circlejerk community in most of them, so yeah. when generals were on /v/, there was some circlejerk, but because threads didn't feel isolated on /v/ like they do on /vg/, people felt less like they were jumping into an established community.
I believe it was Spore that was the beginning but I could be wrong.
I'm glad I'm not the only one who remembers those threads.
Remember those rage threads which were full of youropenbook screenshots of people saying things like "I'm such a nerd" or any mention of 9gag? Most were stupid but things like keep chilly were great
>Black Ops more casualized than MW2
Also no one on /v/ ever said those things about Portal 2 and Homefront. Brink always looked like shit, I really don't get why that game had any sort of hype train
My favorite one was the chick that said I'm such a nerd for riding a fucking bike.
How long have you been using an imageboard, famoroni?
I always wonder what determines their number. Why are they so high? How do they count from every other imageboard?
Plus, the first two digits. 14 is in the now, 12 looks like it ended in 2010, and 13 was between 2010 and presumably 2013/2014.
here is the oldest one i got. its from 2007
I'm assuming it's all in order.
Oldest /v/ related pic I have that's post-HDD wipe. I have some Yume Nikki pics but I bet they're from uboachan, not here.
A quick google search, i've found they're apparently Unix timestamps counted by milliseconds.
If you put it in this, but only the first 10, it will say when.
This is actually from very late 2006, for example
i'm sorry anon, i coulda sworn it was 2007
There was all kinds of bias with the GW2 hype train. Everybody was shitting on Blizzard because arena net were the guys to take them out.
God, how cringe worthy.
All the fun ones left
Now all we've got are shitiots like boco, marielx, and ecchi something delivery service
we faded into obscurity. was a trip for 6 years and i'd be shocked if anyone remembers me. oh well. back to anon
Why are fat people allowed in public again?
>Costanza era /v/
When is notmoot gonna rectify moot's biggest mistake?
This was 4 years ago
Also, /v/ hasn't made a single meme/remarkable OC after mods started cracking on /v/ culture after the GG purge. Now /pol/ and /int/ are the epic 4chan mene factories.
Anon, /v/ wasn't my first board and even then most of these are from well before I got here.
/pol/ goes through memes like clockwork though.
Never forget the day where a ragtag team of /v/ users playing with toasters and 56k modems beat 9fag in Tribes, good times.
A shame my old hard drive died. Was only able to recover a fraction of my old reaction images.
I still have so many pictures from the "u mad" era.
Have I really been here for over 6 years
I don't even know why pepe became so fucking popular, he had like several other friends, why did the internet latch onto him?
I miss /v/ trolling Christian gamer sites.
I missed out from about 2014-2015 because I fell for the gf meme. When did feelsgoodman become the pepe shit? It's related to /r9k/ and the normie shit right?
Impossible to use now without accusations of reddit
Same with troll face. It's all about being baited, now.
There's obviously still unknown faggots like you who still pop up.
But I don't think we'll ever get anyone as cancerous as Toxic Jester or Lanced Jack or Nigba for a very long time. I think that faggot who posts a maid avatar hangs in the draw threads making requests for it's OC shit. But still, no tripfag has the potential to derail entire topics like the ones of old.
>A shame my old hard drive died. Was only able to recover a fraction of my old reaction images.
Same thing happened to me. Everything from 2009-2012, gone. My life since has been a quest to restore its former glory.
A quest that has failed.
I do remember, say, the thread this is from, though I no longer have a date to reference it.
I remember finding out about the "le" meme.
It was on /co/ with op having posted an mspaint comic with the powerpuff girls playing rock paper scissors with the punchline being "le" and showing their derpy cartoon hands.
Then the commentts were mostly "I thought it was pretty chuckle-worthy until I saw 'le'. lame." "fucking reddit"
I dunno why that's so memorable to me.
What happened to uiharu?
He was one of the few trips I didn't mind. He was a consistent voice of attempted vidya discussion when vidya discussion was at its lowest point on /v/.
>tfw my main user profile has been locked up for over a year
>tfw simply too lazy to bother retrieving it
Although almost nothing on there shouldn't be from before 2011, I wonder what is on there anyway. I probably have an image of Undertale when it became known in its demo stage early on.
It was all for nothing.
I remember Kirby. I don't remember much, but he didn't bring any good to the name.
I still do. How can anyone from then forget that MS Paint doodle? It used to be everywhere.
I wasn't even on 4chan then.
I'm sure it began to go downhill some time before that but 2012 is when /v/ really started to look like what it is today.
It will be relevant once again when the game releases.
I'm still kicking myself for donating 80 bucks to that shit.
I don't have any saved, unfortunately. Or at least any that I'll bother looking for.
On another note, over a year ago I downloaded a folder full of old /co/ stuff and some other things from 06/07 for no good reason.
This was something they didn't calculate for, oddly enough they could have fixed this by just making filtering entire generals easier and general fags being forced to use the same name for the thread, or the name somewhere in it, which is useful for them to search anyway.
vg is hell
dubs wasn't even super bad plus dubs was like 2010ish.
It was GETs before that and dubs was a thing since almost inception, just dubs guy made it a bit bigger.
Really /v/ only gets good every few years though.
Quentin has a fucking website dedicated to his trolling.
People always say Lanced Jack trolled 4chan the most, but Quentin trolled so hard the Chans still feel the aftershocks.
Dubs was fucking awful when Bateman was first introduced. You would have a perfectly vidya good topic going, but because one person got dubs a bunch of faggots appeared and spammed the topic. A few months later dubs were used as a force of good to derail off-topic threads. Moot was still trying to kill it though from when it was cancerous.
feelsgoodman.jpg and sadfrog.jpg were panels cropped from the comic and were used for years in here,in 2015(or 2014 i don't )the tendies stories and GBP appeared on /r9k/ that's were smug pepe came from,after that for some reason social media normies started using pepe,so /r9k/ did the pepepopo shit to scare them off but it didn't worked and so pepe died.
Weird how Activision is no longer vidyas biggest nemesis.
i'd take old tripfags over the innate cancer 4chan is now
donkey kong, manly tears, quentin or kangoku were great to hate, and they seemed to keep all the faggotry to themselves, now it's everywhere
I just mainly ignored them, honestly a lot of those threads were shit anyway.
Let's be honest unless it's offtopic (anime, animals, tv, etc) /v/ is usually cancerous as fuck, and dubs didn't change this in any way.
feelsgoodman.jpg was used here for such a long time, it just worked well. Of course like everything overused here for years it after (2011-2013?) became popular everywhere else (Reddit, imgur, facebooks, etc), then hit twitch around 2013-2014 and unfortunately is now basically 'every kid knows it'.
All that tripping since 07 payed off then. Bless filters
>tfw your collection of pictures from 2011-2013 is the only meaningful thing in your life
>mfw I still can't find more than a couple full episodes of Portal
Not specifically /v/ but still a great moment on /v/
One of the only thing that still gets me to smile years later.
I've been here more than a decade now.
There is no escape.
this was such a weird and obviously fake thread, but it got a lot of attention at the time and was pretty funny.
Well, besides making awesome games, his game of the year got him the biggest initial rep on /v/
We produce memes sometimes, kinda hard to do now with people to quickly jump on the "look how autistic this is" train. People's huge phobia of being reddit discourages a lot of original content ironically enough. There are a ton of in jokes like Tile guy and bunch of stuff ingrained in the board's culture like LOSS, specific shitposters, 4am threads, and so on.
I know we have ongoing or yearly stuff. The /v/GAs exists but went to shit when the circlejerking became too much, there's the /v/ Musical that produces gems here and there, and vidya polls continue to get rigged.
Elections always make /pol/ go into hyperdrive with OC.
Any "Sonytendo" image
what a shitposty year that resulted in
>People's huge phobia of being reddit discourages a lot of original content ironically enough.
This is pretty sad but accurate. If you were one of the people who did things like old EFG, nowadays you'd get shat on with le pepes or told to go back to reddit. If your thread was somehow successful it just gets screencapped and posted to reddit later for them to laugh at. It was nice when reddit just got the leftovers a few years after because they thought this site was full of hackers selling cp.
