4chan history

ID:pWT+LDrH No.774269 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Every once in a while I see someone claim that 4chan was, at some point in time, some kind of secret Something Awful goon club. People seem to be saying that, after /a/ was separated from /b/ (i.e. /b/ stopped being "anime/random"), /a/ and the other anime boards became "ADTRW: imageboard edition"; while /b/ became "FYAD: imageboard edition". However, when piecing things together from the available archived threads, my personal memory of 4chan, and a dash of common sense, this... doesn't really seem true.

First of all, I'll admit that I only started browsing 4chan 2 years into its life. But by that point, /b/ had already become a completely different beast. FYAD had its memes and /b/ had its ironic posts, but as a general rule, the two boards only seem to have been similar in a very superficial way; they were 'everything goes', wacky-zany random shitposting boards, but the actual nature of the random shitposting was very different. Looking at the SA archives, FYAD in 2003-2005 was, even back then, largely aiming for sarcasm, irony and satire, while /b/ was more 'let's post dumb shit for the hell of it while shitting on things we hate head-on'. FYAD was also the type of place that internet-detectived people like Shii for being 'anime pedos', and 'anime pedo' material was only posted on FYAD with a veil of irony and "heh, we're just making fun of the people who like this stuff for REAL". Meanwhile, /b/ was full of anime weirdos that didn't even try to hide it with irony.

Sure, I first came across /b/ 2 years into 4chan's life, but I also have this: http://web.archive.org/web/20031008225412/http://img.4chan.net/b/imgboard.htm - a very, VERY early /b/ from late 2003. Aside from trip/namefaggotry being accepted and very common back then, 2003 /b/ doesn't seem all that different from modern 4chan. It's already vastly, VASTLY different from 2003 FYAD-style posting.

4chan mobile unable to refresh

ID:G2+r9ye+ No.786183 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
Is this a known issue or am I the only one?

The update button doesn't seem to work on my phone and gives me a connection error message. Auto update doesn't print the message, but doesn't seem to update the posts anyway.

When I use the browser refresh everything updates fine obviously, but isn't too efficient sometimes when you're outside and your connection is slow as hell.

I've tried this on any browser and none of them could update. It used to work fine a few months ago.

How to save /v/

ID:34+rANjT No.781185 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Split it up. Some ideas:

>/pcg/ - PC gaming
>/vgn/ - gaming news
>/cel/ - celebrity news and gossip

That's just a start. It's so fast it needs to slow down. People want a forum to discuss their favorite youtuber (eg. Game dumps). Give them one. People want a forum to discuss console wars. Give them one.

You can't hope to delete all these threads. You can instead channel them elsewhere.

Board requests = board suggestions ?

>1. Board requests.

Do 'board requests' equal 'board suggestions'?

Global rule against posting anime on non-anime boards

ID:cjfW5/Wc No.780855 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
Similar to the rule of not posting ponies outside of /mlp/, I think a rule against posting anime on /a/ and the other anime boards would be good.

Yes, I am aware that this was originally an anime site, but I don't get why a sports board or fitness board would need anime. In fact, the people who post anime inside these boards (and outside the anime boards) are all circlejerkers/shitposters, and thus don't contribute anything positive to the board. Seriously, there needs to be a rule keeping anime in the anime boards.
