I had backups, and most of my shit was spread over several HDDs just because most of them were pre-2010 and storage space was smaller back then. I had them all plugged in at once because I was in the process of reorganizing and backing up the end of the current season when the power supply failed, surged and fried my whole rig, including every single drive.

It was about 2000 dollars worth of computer hardware that all went up in smoke at once due to a lemon power supply that was less than a year old.

/a/ took a major nosedive after Katawa Shoujo's release, but in hindsight oldest /a/ wasn't much better. If everyone started posting like pre-2008, you'd think you were on reddit meme board with a 4chan skin.

2008-2012 /a/ was probably the best, being resistant to everyone joining "their /a/", newfags were singled out and ridiculed into either leaving or learning the proper way to post (read; lurk moar).

Unfortunately this led to new people on the site doing neither of these things and thinking that in order to fit in you have to be extremely angry and aggressive all the time, hence why /a/ is in the state it is now.

You have to consider what was acceptable back then. In early 4chan, things like ^_^ or "rofl" weren't the signs of facebook-tier newfag they are now, because only the experienced users used them. They were a sign of oldfaggotry.

There's a sad story about how 4chan culture got so big that "secondaries" took it up (without the nuances) and basically ran it into the ground and ruined it for everyone. The saddest part is that it ended up stifiling a lot of people's desire to make OC because they didn't want it stolen/ruined by these outsiders.

I know this makes us sound like huge hipsters, but there's a drop of truth to it.

The fact that there are still people who equate "shonen" solely with power level fighting view it as something inherently inferior on /a/ shows that this place is full of pretentious shitheads and general opinons here should not be taken seriously. A ton of shonen is written with wide appeal in mind just like shoujo is (but shoujo is more accepted because of the board's trend for pedophile autogynephilia).

There's a bigger knowledgeable minority on /a/ than there is on every other anime site. But still a TON of MAL/ANN tier people.

>genuinely sad that he gets more attention than actual important industry
I can understand where you're coming from, but I don't think Grumpy Jii-san ever took the spotlight away from actual industry figures; more that he was an anomaly that made a lot of people feel comfortable with themselves. The whole "too old to be watching kid's cartoons" mentality has always been a thing so Grumpy Jii-san was something that people could hold onto and feel reassured with; to see someone much older than them (who would generally be out of touch) enjoying the same things they did. Whether his reviews were legitimate or not as >>143464359 said is in my opinion irrelevant as he was always more than just an anime reviewer.

It upsets me because it's pathetic. At least Sakura Fish is generally contained to one thread. People who post Keit-Ai can't help but spew out the copypasta every time a phone is mentioned or becomes mildly relevant; regardless of the thread or context. Some might even say that since it has spread to places it's not wanted and refuses to die it fits the definition of cancer.

I started using the site in 2005 but a few years ago I saw some archived threads from 2003 of people mindlessly spouting dead gay memes like "thrust vectoring" without the tiniest bit of creativity or cleverness and then there was ther one guy calling them out on being unfunny meme spouters and they read exactly like a 2016 thread

People who idealize the early days of 4chan and think it was some secret club of internet elites are probably the same people who idealize 2000s Something Awful and think it was ever not a den of moralistic holier-than-thou idiots who were deeply insecure about being dorks and wanted to act like they were above it all

And yes SA was always extremely moralistic even when it was super-edgy and outright bullied people. Even "your poison womb is making heaven too fucking crowded" was morally justified a few paragraphs earlier. I'm saying this as someone who literally grew up on it and used it long before finding out about 4chan.

I looked at archived threads from 2003 and they were literally just the most uncreative kind of catchphrase spouting imaginable, absolutely devoid of the slightest bit of wit. I'd link them but Desustorage is down and I don't have them bookmarked.

There was no "golden age" of 4chan. From the get-go this site was linked on the absolute anuses of the internet. It was linked in a popular thread on some utterly cancerous anime forum I posted to lurk at age 12 THE DAY IT CAME ONLINE.

It's really not that the distribution of quality has changed, is that the quantity has increased and that's caused negative effects.
You can drop basically any bait you please in a thread and some retard and/or troll will bite.
Moderation is overworked because the moderation team hasn't grown to keep pace with the userbase.
The increased post volume means people have greater need to pick and choose what they read, so you get isolated sub-communities.
The greater post volume means that what should have been outliers, includng blatant newfaggotry, gets seen as accepted because they see others doing the same thing.

Basically the real appeal of /a/ is that it attracts a HUGE group of people and that if you make a good enough OP you can attract only the actually-good and interesting posters to post in a thread. 4chan is not and never has been a place where the average user has a particularly high level of intelligence.
