>>704965150 strangely enouh OP I dont consider myself an oldfag, just a fag, and I've been here 7 years so far but I'm getting tired of it. You get bored of 4chan tbh a lot of it is just the same ol' shit
>>704965150 Who exactly cares, where is the difference of browsing this shithole since 10years or since 10 minutes anyways? You don't need to be a neckbearded 4chan veteran to post furry porn and bbc b8.
>>704965150 I've known this place since i was like 12, no kidding. Started lurking a bit later. I never posted untill discovering /pol/ like a year ago. Now I'm 22, studying in STEM field. I only browsed /b/ for years, then I switched to /pol/ because /b/ has become infested with traps, gay threads and general spam more than ever.
/b/tards either leave this shithole for good at some point, or they migrate to other boards that doesn't share /b/'s teenage edginess. There are no adults who browse /b/ exclusively.
>>704966784 Because they're constantly fucking everywhere. If I wanted to look at dick I'd go to /hm/. Same thing goes for facebook fap and pics you shouldn't share threads, there's so many of them that it's just annoying
>>704968785 His name was "amoury" or something Mexican. Idk. I started calling him "Mouwdee" because it was easier for me. So then everyone started calling him that. I was a dick in my early teens, and I didn't even know it.
The first time I visited /b/ was in March of 2005, right after I started playing World of Warcraft. This chick I was lusting after (lol) said he brother was a "/b/tard", and I had no fucking idea what she was talking about. The rest is history.
>>704965150 4chan is like an old treehouse. you abandoned it when you left for high school or college and new kids took it over.
sure you can always take the climb up the old rickety stepladder. Up past the "no girls allowed sign". Some things never change. Take a look at around your old favorite boards. listen to the new kids with their new memes. They don't make much sense to you, but you smile and nod.
you wonder for yourself was there always this much porn? A folder in your hard-drive marked "oldies but goodies" filled with turtles hentai tells you yes. Still all these trap-appreciation and webm threads strike you as somewhat crude. "we had style and humor" you lie to yourself. You troll someone in a /pol/ thread and gets called a cuck for you efforts.
You find a thread talking about the old times and you join in. People proudly profess themselves an oldfag or humblebrag that they've only been here for x many years. Everyone pitches in with memes and threads from each their own golden age. Most agree that things a going downhill for the site and indeed that it has always been going downhill. Someone chimes in "if you don't like it do something about it". This gives you pause, could you recreate the magic? Could you make some golden OC? maybe stage a raid on some hapless fool? Instead you post an old demotivational poster, one of the Hitler ones, and shut your browser down.
Your curiosity has been sated, but you feel somewhat left behind. You sit quietly for a moment letting the nostalgia leave your system. Looking at the time you decide to start making dinner. The girlfriend should be coming by any minute now and you have to prepare for the morning meeting tomorrow. It's better this way. You are happier now than you were then. you don't need the approval of anonymous strangers to validate your existence anymore. and yet. . .
You'll go through this cycle every 4-5 months until either you or the site is no more.
>>704966281 More to the point, why the fuck are you still here, nothing happens anymore, no card stands no flash mobs, there's no chat anymore either, it's always been trolls trolling trolls trolling trolls, nothing new, but it used to be witty now it's just retards, all 4chan is good for is browsing gif for niche porn
>>704971621 I never got into EQ. Warcraft was the first MMO I tried. Met a girl there in the summer of 2006. She was the friend of a guy I was farming BRD for Hand of Justice with. Chatted her up, developed a relationship. Visited her in 2007 twice, then she visited me in 2008 (850 mile difference, US). I moved in 2009 and we bought a house in her hometown. Getting married in Oct.
Hey Faggots, My name is John, and I hate every single one of you. All of you are fat, retarded, no-lifes who spend every second of their day looking at stupid ass pictures. You are everything bad in the world. Honestly, have any of you ever gotten any pussy? I mean, I guess it’s fun making fun of people because of your own insecurities, but you all take to a whole new level. This is even worse than jerking off to pictures on facebook. Don’t be a stranger. Just hit me with your best shot. I’m pretty much perfect. I was captain of the football team, and starter on my basketball team. What sports do you play, other than “jack off to naked drawn Japanese people”? I also get straight A’s, and have a banging hot girlfriend (She just blew me; Shit was SO cash). You are all faggots who should just kill yourselves. Thanks for listening. Pic Related: It’s me and my bitch
>>704971812 WQ1 was my first MMO, and the last of its kind I've played. They cared about immersion above all else. Now its action and graphics. Fuck a good score or lore. Project Gorgon looks kinda neat though.
>>704972136 For me the draw was being lost in a world that I knew absolutely nothing about despite having played a bit of WC/TFT. I lived for that struggle of leveling at the time. Pushed my way up through the "ranks," became the raid leader of one of the "big four" on our server, though keep in mind it was an RP server so the progression wasn't NEARLY as bleeding edge as some of the other guys on PVP realms. I get nostalgic and a bittersweet taste in my mouth just thinking about it.
>>704972021 If that's what you want to believe ... I've seen it all, though. I've seen girls cheating on their oblivious boyfriends for several years, wifes cheating on their oblivious husbands, and ex-wifes cheating on their oblivious ex-husbands. You can't escape it. Universe isn't going to make an exception for you just because you hope to.
>>704972354 If you genuinely think that every marriage involves infidelity, I don't know what to tell you. They obviously aren't all like that. We're an old fashioned couple and hold similar values. I appreciate the advice, though.
>>704972469 My woman played some EQ2 a bit, but her big thing before Warcraft was SWG.
>>704971474 Profound message about getting older, A, except the degradation people refer to occurred in tandem with a general downward spiral of the internet in general and coincides with an influx of younger users, not just younger than I currently am, but younger that I was in my hayday, barely more than toddles watching some man child sell his dignity down the river for ad revenue, social giants driving smaller communities apart, everything is on Reddit/Facebook/Twitter now fuck your small niche site, make a niche subreddit now, but now anyone can cross post it across Reddit and can access any community because the are all functionally identical, I can go to /R/kniting and start posting stupid shit there now because there is no newfag curve it's just Reddit about kniting and I know how to use Reddit.
Pretty soon it'll all be one site, and everyone will use it for everything but the individuals will be drowned out. That, is what sucks.
what's funnier is that people think being an oldfag is something to be proud of. There are normal people on /b/, but none of them stick around so claiming to be an oldfag really just proves you're a beta neckbeard.
>>704972847 I haven't been married. I told you: I have seen it always at work. Every single time. People are a couple for years, thinking about marriage, maybe even marrying. Then, ba-bumm, everything's broken. The most retarded explanation I have heard why a girl still lived with her boyfriend was "because of the cats", otherwise she didn't care about him for 2 years.
And I see it in the baw threads, and I see it on other platforms, and I am always wondering why people want to depend on each other so much when all they get from that is getting hurt.
>>704965150 this is a fact, 2009 fag here and i cringe at the new b. Image boards are dying because moderators cant remove shit content. Remember when moot told that girl she would be banned if she didnt send nudes? Thats the b i remember.
