Can any oldfags or originalfags tell me how the 4chan community used to be like back in the site's early days?

/b/ used to be a lot slower. You could post a new thread, and it would still be around hours later. This led to a fantastic collaborative meme generation ability we've long since lost. Someone would post a template image and other anons would fucking run with it for hours.

Million gets were huge deals.

There was a lot less spam, less trap threads, and less spiderman threads. It scrolled slower so people could actuall have discussions in a thread. There were more leaks/ epic gets, roll threads, and stuff you weren't supposed to see.

also the trolling was a much higher quality. I would say at one point this was a college aged board with college aged tastes, now it's closer to 3rd grade or middle school in it's nature.

don't you think they should make like three more /b/ boards so the scrolling would decrease we would be so happy

Been here since 2006.
Normies are cancerous, yes, but it's highly conditional. Someone could be completely cancerous and still post the troll face and 'le memes' while the others could actualy know SOME ammount of the culture.

All I'm saying is, not all normies are cancerfags. If that makes any sense.

Who was this "queen of /b/"? What did the community do/show to her?
>>
>>685179457
very different but most of what kills it today is actually the size and amount of users.

I have seen this happen before with other communities, when it reaches a certain size new people enter faster than they are able to understand the norms and ways of the community and in turn they change it, usually for the worse simply because they latch on to the things they notice and in their desperate attempt to belong or in a stupid attempt at contributing they exaggerate and overdo the jokes, get validation from each other that they mistake for validation from the site itself and all this just create a bad downward spiral.

nothing to be done about it.

a few times you see some of the lost glory here and there and that is the only reason I come here anymore.

I dunno it was just the one place we could go to sperg out, discuss things, meme it up, and generally avoid normies. The quote that always gets posted because it sums it up best is "/b/ was never good, but it was never this bad."

>>685182375
not today, too many of them are active users, the lurkers have too many shitheads to learn from to be able to return to the old ways, not to mention one of the biggest problems is simply the numbers and the amount of traffic the site gets, it is difficult to have any kind of community when it all gets renewed so fast.


threads that people like even die before people get a chance to post because there is too much traffic.

back in the day a thread could sit for hours until exploding, waiting for the right people to make something great out of that content, today those thread more or less simply die before those people who might be able to make lulz out of it get to reply

Yup. Its hard for me to believe that I still keep coming here for the past 13 years. But don't blame 4chan users, the internet itself has changed. its more accessible than it ever was and people are using it as a social media instead of a tool to share information.

/b/ is just a place for newfags to show up at. they don't see anything on 9fag or leddit so they come here to feel edgy after school. why is there no good content anymore you ask? well, what kind of content do you expect from a bunch of under8b& faggits who have their favorite jewtube channel star on the next tab?

What people posted back then would be considered cancer now. There was a lot more OC. Less people posting a picture of themselves, though you had the occasional person. A lot more weeb shit. It was just different, wasn't really all that better besides there being more OC.

>>685181430
what annoy me more is that everyone screams "tits or gtfo" without knowing why and how it was orignally used.

now a person can ask for female input, and the sorry girl that replies gets fucking chased out of the thread by pre-pubertal autistic morons without ant social intellect at all

while in the past it was reserved for attentionwhores who gladly would give up their self respect for attention and thus deserved the mocking

now we are just scaring chicks away and making this into a fag-fest without limitations.

the biggest difference between old and new is intellect, the new is crowd controlled while the old was based on critical thinking.

it is strange how only 4chan is affected by this myth of yours? how come other sites and memories from everyones life is correct, but not the 4chan memories?

the main issue is its size and its growth, what happened to 4chan is not unique, I have seen it happen before to other communities and you will too when you get to experience more of them, sorry friend.

Started browsing in 2008 in the midst of a Boxxy rampage...wondered who Boxxy was.

There was actually "dead" hours with few people.

A lot more goatse....

A lot more gore...

Slightly more OC and lovable antics...

Less underageb&

I was probably the only female browsing, maybe there were 10 others at different times? Now no one asks me to posts my tits or gtfo because there are enough women for everyone to believe me.

All in all, not much has changed....

Original fag reporting in.

Lurked for a few years before starting the limited posting I do. I posted more back then I guess.

Instead of camping threads and refreshing every half minute it was more of a refresh every 10-15 minutes.

A lot less ironic shit posting.

Easier to one step troll because people were more gullible/less informed, instead of the trolls trolling trolls trolling trolls etc. that /b/ has been for years.

Sure /b/ has never been good, but it was better back then, and for miserable people the nostalgia that better times brings is strong.

A lot like Vanilla WoW I guess, a slight rise, and a plateau leading to a steep downhill slope.

In general, in the past two decades the userbase has become less and less intelligent.

It's an undisputed fact, and it's not just 4chan. It's the internet itself. A fact that most people seem to hide from is that most people are pretty stupid compared to the brightest. Originally it took wealth and/or technical skill to be on the internet. Since the 90's forward, the prevalence, ubiquity, popularity, and most of all, the accessibility of the internet has ensured that more and more of those dimwits are able to get on and find their way around.

It's very clear. there has been a constant erosion of brainpower since then, and it was amplified beyond return after moot plugged 4chan in Time magazine about 7 years ago. The average IQ on the internet was much higher 20 years ago, in general. Now any child or dimwit can find their way around easily, since it's all point and click.

>>685192254
There are already many places, many you could never find alone. Exclusivity is both a boon and a bane.

Anyone know what the politics of /pol/ used to be in 4chan's early days?
>>
>>685192764
I'm not him, but, need you even ask? It's for attention, bro. People everywhere want attention. Especially young or isolated people who's offline life might not be the best.
>>
>>685192776
I'm aware of that, because why wouldn't there be?
Sadly it's hard to design a selector based on intelligence instead of skill, knowledge, wealth, or knowing someone who's in.
Exclusivity doesn't need to be a killer if it has a proper selector.
>>
>>685192953
I don't remember /pol/ even existing, tbh. A lot of boards have come and gone. I never went to most of them until recently out of curiosity. 4chan was just an anime club, mostly.

'06 oldfag here- less faggotness, furries, traps, all that mental illness shit, a lot better jokes/memes that were only known to 4chan (and why normies never heard of them), actually good trolling, and more discussion overall. Was good times. Porn is better now though I guess.

I've really noticed that the unique board culture that drew me to this place has died. Nobody calls out the people that don't belong. I see somebody post lurk moar like once every three months. There's just too many new people that never figured out how to integrate properly.

The fucking collective iq also dropped like a fucking stone in a vacuum next to a black hole. Assuming a coordinate system where down would be towards the black hole.

Dude... some people are a lot slower on the uptake. They don't think 20 moves ahead or whatever. It's just like "It feels good, I do it" kind of shit, and we get to watch what humans are really like behind the exceptional proxies we use to sensationalize humans as something more than what they.

The site overall was a lot less steamlined, noko and all that.

There used to be fortunes too.

As for content, it's pretty similar. /pol/ was less of a thing, the place has definitely got more racist. It used to just be incoherent anger, now it feels more targeted. It think that started after Chanology when everyone thought anon's were scary for some reason.

People saying there were less dick girls have no idea. More 3d dick girls now maybe, but there's always been dick girls.

People used to spam info threads instead of YLYL threads but they're just the same idea; big threads full of the same few dozen images.

Everything we need is already there, but like I said, Exclusivity is both a boon and a bane.

We could create some Cicada style puzzle that someone has to solve through some complex multi-step process, but do you know what happens? Instead of finding the best and brightest, you get entire communities of autists who turn it into a collaborative effort and then post the results on the clear-net so any dumbass who can google can access it.

As far as I can tell, the best way is to basically recruit select individuals for access, but again, the same issue, the club won't be very big like that, and if you open it up you run into random idiots again.

Maybe something like all that, but add a few layers to it, like some of the other chans have hidden VIP areas, etc.

Really, we can do whatever we want.. but you know, exclusivity...

Came here for Asian porn, still do.

The orly owls were posted when I first came. Lot's of useless raids, blamed ebaumsworld for it.

Bots and spam was extremely common. Some days the site would be flooded with one word posts, ascii blocks that covered screens or simply be down.

I remember the useless shit to be most fun. As when someone found an open webcam and hundreds of people gathered around to watch some guy work his daily office life. Dave or Andy or some shit. Posts about him getting a new coffe mug, getting yelled at by his boss or spilling shit on his desk. It ended with some guy calling him I think.

Cicada 3306 are aimed at acquired skill, i wouldn't use puzzles like that to select intelligent people.

Maybe you could put up an exclusive and well hidden club with a secure access control.
Users select users, knowing a guy does get you in if you qualify.
It will of course be small to begin with, but growth will be exponentially if everyone does their part.

/pol/ is new (is the new /new/).

/pol/ is a containment board; their cancer used to be all over /b/, now it's tucked neatly away. It's a shame, in a way. We used to get raided by Austrian Economists from the Von Mises site all the time. They are fucking retards, but eloquent retards, nonetheless.

Believe it or not, but back in the day, people still had "people skills" because the internet was new enough that an entire generation of literal shut-ins who spent their whole childhood online didn't exist.

I remember huge collaborative projects that were actually awesome and not dragged down by shitty people and their stupid ideas. I remember helping and being helped all the time, because intelligent people with specific interests could spot each other since the river of piss wasn't the ocean it is today.

it wasnt very different tbh /b/ was never good you newfags just missed the "mods are sleep" threads where pedos posted cp often not the shit of nudism and nonude that is posted now but real cp

and the mods of before were lazy asses they took their time deleting cp and they banned everyone in the threads where cp was posted, i was banned twice for cp just because some asshole posted it after i had posted

>>685197103
what happened was that when traffic increased beyond a certain amount people were unable to spot the islands in the piss ocean and actually thought that the piss was the point.

when they heard laughter from the islands they thought it was the piss causing it and so they just brought more and more piss, and eventually liquid shit, and now here we are

Hello dear users of 4-channel! I am a new user of this site (ama), and would like to introduce myself. I usually go by the alias of 'BlackNeckbeard2004' on other websites, such as Reddit and Tumblr, however I cannot find how to create an account on this site yet so I must post anonymously. I have Stage 4 Terminal Autism, and was told by my dear friends on Reddit that this place would be a good place to hang out with others who suffer from my terrible illness. I have also diagnosed myself with ADHD, Schizophrenia, Bipolar Disorder, and Social anxiety, however my oppressive patriarchal psychiatrist refuses to diagnose me with those disorders.

I have enjoyed my time on this website thus far, and consider myself an oldfag now after 3 long days of occasionally refreshing the page. I would ask that the admin team update the websites outdated design and ban users who feel that can insult other users with nasty phrases, such as 'faggot' and 'retard'. As a retarded faggot, such liberal use of words that carry large implications is highly offensive, and triggers me badly.

I would like to thank you for reading this, and hope that you share my views on the listed topics! Yours sincerely, BlackNeckbeard2004. :)
Lol you scrolled down really far to read this bit! Well done rolflmaocopterzzzz

Thank you very very much for reading my post! This is the first social interaction I've had in 2 weeks so I might be kinda rusty lolzerz. I feel you are trying what the normies call 'flirting' and would therefore like to extend my gratitude in your direction (perhaps with my penis?) for taking the time to assess my personality enough to come to the conclusion that I am a suitable mate! Please do send me your Skype address if you would like to take this any further :)

its not as much 'summerfags' as much as it is the goddamn heat that seems to fuck people up

most normal people who don't spend hours here daily go out and do dumb shit like run around, party get shitfaced etc

then you have people here all the time whose only outlet for their stupidity is on 4chan

Word of mouth is a possible model. I know a few people that are savvy enough that I would invite them to something like that, and I'm sure I'd end up knowing at least one.
>>
Honestly before the whole cuck meme blew up, it was already horrible, but that just made it so much worse
>>
back then /b/ was a cesspool of innovation and lulz.

The board revolved around making fun of each other, creating funny inside jokes and sticking a middle finger up to the ones who didn't get the jokes/humor or weren't in our little culture we created. You had to browse (lurk) the board for a while to learn these subtle "memes" and figure out the place. IE there were infographics that would kill you if you didnt know any better, and some inside jokes/memes had some deep explanation to them. You'd see threads where some random dude knocked a card stand down for lulz on the nyc world cam with live updates in the thread. You would see raids on other websites/games which were for fun and messing with people. Ghost radio pranks were funny as shit. It was more than just rigging poll results. The rage comics were actually hilarious and pretty on edge with the humor at times. We made the "rage" faces and from there it was still pretty good. Then mainstream internet came along, these inside jokes filtered into the masses and we lost our identity. Sure there have been other things since then but it really doesnt surmount to the culture /b/ used to have when you literally couldnt understand a thread just because it felt like people were speaking in another language due to all of the memes/inside jokes.

It pains me that meme has become such a cancerous word.

there used to be raids, nobody gave a shit about sending phone numbers, kik and snapchat didn't exist and "pics your no supposed to share" wasn't cancer because it only showed up like 1 time every other week. oh, and tumblr fags didn't exist, redditors stayed away, nobody gave a shit about anything since we were desensitized to virtually anything.
