Tell me /B/, are you an originalfag, or a newfag?
When did you start browsing /B/?
Pic related, its a timeline.
Old fag. I remember when /b/ was good. No porn. Just depressed people having a giggle about each other's problems. Memes would change hands and before you knew it, OP was a faggot.
They got newfag and oldfag mixed up. Also 2008 here
/b/ never was any good, but there's a very obvious conflict of interests due to a large age-gap:
the original /b/tards wants crude, insensitive & racist humor, hardcore porn, raids & chan-sluts.
the cancerfags wants to repost facebook memes, laugh at old people, glorify weeb/neet lifestyle, jack off to gay porn & cosplay as anonymous (which has been dead for several years).
What happend to 2004? /l/olikon brought me here
Been here since 2006, but honestly who cares.
This board is shit and so are most of the others.
I came here as an edgy teen for porn and counterculture.
Now I come here because old habits die hard and nostalgia is a slut.
4chan is grotesque, but it is ours.
filenames are a great way to detect oldfaggots
Since these were the only things we called 'memes', now its every filthy casual with any type of picture thats posted to the "interwebz"
>2010 - 2012 Oldfag
>2010 - 2014 Redditfag
Originalfag from 2005. Age 31, pack a day smoker. I'm dying, Squirtle.
What do I remeber about early /b/?
Pedobear, Cheese Pizza, Moot was always a fag, desu, EFG, Habbo stuff was a little later. Always the rules of the internet. Rule 34 threads that had AT-ATs banging. Gore. When you see it you'll shit bricks. some bestiality. Never cries for mods. Some gets, because the post count was low enough then. No trips or dubs or quads or wtf ever because the post volume was so low.

I didn't lurk at all when i first started here... as soon as i came here i started shitposting almost immediately, i think barack obamas inauguration was the hot topic at that particular time
I first visited in 2009. I still see myself as a newfag.
Back in the days when I wouldn't have dared crossing anyone for fear I'd be doxxed and hacked out of existence.
Was /b/ ever good? In essence, no. But there was a time when I would expect things besides traps and bananas.
Those days are gone. /b/ was sure as fuck a whole lot better.
In 08 sometime. Kept seeing pics of chicks with /b/ written on them and decided to find out why.
>No trips or dubs or quads or wtf ever
This, I was so confused when I came back here after a couple of years and saw that people were excited to get two numbers in a row. It used to only matter if you hit the latest 100,000 or something and the really good ones on the millions were screenshot and revered
This. The fact some people think only image macros is what a meme is drives me batshit.
Came here back in 2011. Fuck I always thought I could stop being a newfag. I learned eventually. Crazy to think that its been like 6 years. Still feels like I am new to b
>tfw shoveldog doesn't even offend me anymore and i'm more offended by the idea somebody thinks shoveldog will actually hurt me because it feels like being told to get tampons at the store
people below the age of 28 are just actual children
since dec 2003, like 7 months after I graduated highschool, came here because a female highschool friend used to cam for /b/, she eventually moved to /s/, and then she broke up with her bf and the camming stopped, he still posted pics of her though, he stalked, she slapped a restraining order on him, posting pics violated the restraining order, I told on him, beaner went to jail
Pffft. You're all newfags.
Original fag here. Found this website looking for porn in 2007 when I was 13. Didn't understand anything about board culture or the language used or anything so I remember very little of pre-2008 4chan, but feels good man. I was part of it, even superficially. You roodypoos are alright.
>the original /b/tards wants crude, insensitive & racist humor, hardcore porn, raids & chan-sluts.
Nope, nothing to do with racism or edge or raids. It was just for the lulz. Trying to categorize it like this is part of the problem with 4chan these days, feeling the need to post in a certian way means no OC and no lulz. It's just the same stuff all the time and it's because of people notions of what 4hcan is, muh edgy secret club.
Old /b/ was shocking sometimes, but pretty tame in terms of peoples opinions. Shock content was to shock, rather than for edge lords to fap over.
Honestly from being in /pol/ I don't believe you, Aussie shitposting is strong and you should honestly be proud.
I guess it was more of an SA thing then. But we've been hanging around the same place a for over a decade now at least. How sad are we? And by sad I mean totally awesome and not sad old fucks
And this site didn't change much unlike so many sites. So many sites trying to do everything and get investor, make the site more "marketable", become pc, make money, and go public and shit. Thanks for doing none of that.
I was here in December of '04. When the fuck did this chart get so lax?
Also, anyone who lurks moar and doesn't post at least the first few weeks they are here are oldfags, anyone who is a massive faggot isn't.
THE DUBS MASON, WHAT DO THEY MEAN??!??!?!
According to the chart I'm a Redditfag. I've been here since 2013
2chan was a pun on "nii-chan" ("big bro")
4chan was the faggotest name chooseable by a gay mootfaggot, pic rel8
also, witnessed those quints
I was 16 and thought I'd stumbled upon some sort of secret hacking club.
In all fairness, /b/ eight years ago was much better than /b/ now - or at least it seems that way, in hindsight. I recall there being much more going on here, such as raids and ordinary discussion.
Now 60-70% of all threads are just porn shit.
Was that when it was mostly just weeb shit? Or was that 2004?
I remember around then checking it out the first time I heard talk of 4chan, and it was just Jap cartoons all over.
Checked back about a year later. 2005 or 2006? Then the normals had rolled in and it was people getting dank under the cover of anonymity. So it actually had a lot of interesting threads.
>When op wants to be an oldfag, so he puts it between 2010-2012
