every other chan is being raided with illegal images, anyone around?
Is this because of that FBI guy getting caught on 8chan?
I'm around, but I mostly just lurk.
Come and stay a while, we're around.
>>11433
you got dubs so it must be true, how many memes have become true in this decade anyway?

meme magic is real
I mean lower down on the page someone posted '8chan spamming tools' and now today people are complaining that other chans are in spamming warfare.

Who could possibly predicted this turn of events?
>>11442
It's a mystery. If there was some way to just stop repeating the past…
>>11442
and who could possibly be behind all of it?

nice try, fbi
Good I hope this finally converges in a 9/11 synchronized consciousness event where all imageboards get taken down by the FBI. It's not like there's anything worth saving, I've been scurrying for the last two hours trying to find a decent one after a mental breakdown to leave from my last one since all my other alts died. Nothing compares to this day to the absolute perfect first impressions I've had in the old days in regards to content.
All artboards are just edgy druggies.
All random boards are needlessly plain.
All of them use lynxchan or tinyboard+vichan.
All of them are run by unambitious people with the same staff responsible for killing the past 20 boards you went to every time.
New one's don't last for more than a year.
Old one's that are still barely alive are unimpressive.
A shocking jolt through the system might actually be able to capture some magic already but I doubt it'll happen, you know damn well the FBI will just take hold of all domains instead.

what would you suggest for shaking up the imageboard world?

it's beauty is it's simplicity.

>what would you suggest for shaking up the imageboard world?
A savior to put it bluntly.
Something like early 8chan that promises a better tommorow. Except this time you don't fuck it up like the Freddit and Pig did and take precautions to ensure it stands above time.
But such things are too numerous to mention.
>it's beauty is it's simplicity.
We have very different views on imageboards the thing that made me stick to them and not just make a few posts then never return like I've done with say Counter Strike servers is that the best of image boards offered legitimate intellectual discussion the likes of which is rarely seen these days if you're not part of a pre indoctrinated institute thus making it stand out. Maybe I'm over rating it since I was a fucking literal retard at the time and still am in many ways but imageboards were the first place I had seen consistent good taste and judgement of ideas incorporated into a sites culture.
See House of Leaves for basic– if anything well known and low level example. /x/ and /lit/ used to love it so much one of the first arg's ever was made by it's influence. To this day I've never heard anyone outside of imageboards mention it.
It's just a shame the modern artboard community is total shit run mostly by druggies who think photoshopping photos into aesthetically fitting environments is art. But even then early imageboards all had a consistent style you could barely find elsewhere, at least until 2017 at most. Seems like we've greatly devolved as users. Back in 2004 there was something unique about posts even pedophile spam was unique, these days it's just, boring. If imageboards aren't dying they're in fatigue, either way they need a shock quick. Or perhaps not quick but eventually. No one running imageboards can do it competently so we'll need to wait for someone who has enough millions to set up a site properly but with a clear moral compass as a site owner that won't let them completely fuck it up like every other site has since Reddit.
>>11459
nice bait. you can solve all those issues yourself but you won't. imageboard culture is dying in general so even if you try good luck.

all artists are edgy druggies, get over it

nobody's going to go back to using kusaba or older software due to it being not developed, buggier than the software we have, and having extreme security flaws that can cause further problems (kusaba especially). vichan and lynxchan are the only good softwares right now, even the one parley is working on is shit in comparison.
>All of them are run by unambitious people with the same staff responsible for killing the past 20 boards you went to every time.
this is hardly true.

what do you expect from an imageboard? the formula will stay the exact same because there's nothing to really improve or change. the communities will stay the same as well.

>>11463
>A savior to put it bluntly.
be one and stop bitching. it wont happen. the failures of 8chan and masterchan are due to their "forward thinking martyr" admins.

>is that the best of image boards offered legitimate intellectual discussion the likes of which is rarely seen these days if you're not part of a pre indoctrinated institute thus making it stand out


it never has been like this, it's always been autists sperging over dumb shit. intellectual discussion will always be limited and always has been. it will always devolve into autistic sperging and arguments like we're having right now.

>It's just a shame the modern artboard community is total shit run mostly by druggies who think photoshopping photos into aesthetically fitting environments is art.


again, contribute.

it really just sounds like you dont like imageboards anymore, and think some magical person is going to come along and drastically change the entire global IB community. which it won't, the only way you or anyone can make a difference is by contributing in the face of adversity or starting your own imageboard with these ideas that you have, whatever they are. but in the end, imageboards will always be the same. your impact won't affect anything unless some stroke of luck happens, and simply complaining about the state of imageboards like almost everyone else, instead of actually doing something, is going to even further decrease that slim chance that things will change. and just as an aside, user-created boards (8ch, masterchan, endchan) will never actually change the landscape and only further devolve it as moderation becomes less and less important and post quality will continue to go down until people like yourself leave because of the lowered post quality. there's a reason why 4chan and 2channel are still the two biggest imageboards and all the rest have fallen to obscurity. the formula has already been found to be successful as an imageboard.
>>11459
90% of this is your fault for not posting/making suggestions in places.
>>11463
The only complaint you make that I fully agree with is that conversations have been replaced by memes, but that's because no one starts conversations anymore.

I mean, look at this website. It can be completely dead for 5 days straight, and then someone starts a conversation and there are at least a few responses, even if the common response is "you're a fag".

Being proactive is the hardest part. Everyone wants to lurk or make sarcastic responses.

Also, as you get older, there are less topics you feel like jumping into. You've already heard every viewpoint on the media, you've researched conspiracies and you've argued about how magnets work. It's the same shit over and over again, so you start participating less, and having less topics that pique your interest.

Alas, anon, you may just be growing up.
>>11466
I did.
32chan and Chanpink died even after I told them not to shut down. I owned a board and everything, nothing came of it, we even did a spam campaign to get 8gag to move there instead. Nothing worked once the site owners gave up.

You're not wrong there, the community is partially responsible for what happens to a site.

Literally does not happen to me. Did you happen to start using boards 2012-14?

I'm not but then again I don't consider myself to be a great artist but maybe I'm just not high enough.

Never said anything about going back I was implying something new. Doesn't every single game using Unreal or Unity get old for you these days? Does for me.
Original engine always beats pre made stuff if done right.
>this is hardly true
I've run into fucking Milkdud in 3 different boards now, and have seen him mentioned by 15+ bo's or site owners. Yes it is. All imageboard admins know each other in modern times it's become a disgusting group of elitists post 2014.
>the communities will stay the same as well
No, it doesn't depending on the imageboard. Some will evolve, begin using newer images over time, but a basic one where people only post any given image with no need for consistency might stay the same.
>be one and stop bitching. it wont happen. the failures of 8chan and masterchan are due to their "forward thinking martyr" admins
Never used Masterchan, there are easier ways to get cp out there. Or was that 12chan? Either way, 8chan failed thanks to a brain drain when a major wave of newfags that needed to be educated occurred, thanks to the administration but not for any form of forward thinking mentality, on the contrary it always had a desperate preservation mentality from 2016.
>it never has been like this, it's always been autists sperging over dumb shit. intellectual discussion will always be limited and always has been. it will always devolve into autistic sperging and arguments like we're having right now.
But at least it was autistic screaming about something of value. The serious discussion must balance out shitposting for the best experience.

Literally FBI Run. A good chunk of normalfags already know what Lolcow.farm and Kiwifarms is.
Moderation is directly responsible for influencing posters. Yes the community is at fault too but they're the string to the mods spark. Lack of management and ambition from people who control the site limit the posters features, thought process, everything. Why do you think most of the boards have casual discussions only? Most are made casually.
Without any specific trait that helps it stand out said board will be doomed to only more splintering.
This is why I said that salvation cannot come at the price of the community, or just looking for a new site, it needs very specific traits to help it stand out and give hope and stability. Without that there's nothing but the promise of failure again.
Not sure if you've been going only to stuff like this board where people barely even use text formatting and just casually chat one image per post but I was there during a time where underground culture was getting bigger in imageboards. I've seen things of more value than any university education could ever give someone. At their peak Imageboards can foster a community of legitimate peak intellectualism and culture that is comparable as an AI to a brain, electricity giving them the power to be faster than any institution out there.
But whatever like I said I could be over rating this whole thing.
Maybe discovering that only stuck out to me because at the time I was uneducated in almost all fields. But even if that moment was only a dream, a hallucination that was never as good as I thought it was it's still something worth preserving.
A value I legitimately believe could help people. Something that gives credence to the years of autistic discussion, pedophilia, and political extremism. It's something that made me the person I am today and I don't regret it for one second. A lot of people say imageboards made them become autistic neets. The opposite happened for me. I was already at a very low point in life with no meaning only a spiral downhill. Imageboards helped give me if not purpose at least momentary direction. Seeing things gradually go down hill after that first impression, just makes me angry because the admins could never see the full value in imageboards.
And thanks to that imageboards for now will never evolve past shitposting and casual discussion and there's not a single place in the internet, maybe even the world that can give me that same nostalgic yet comforting feeling of being a newfag, meeting people better than you and feeling safe knowing you've found a good home.
>dude just create your own imageboard lmao.
Don't know how to code, don't have the time to either. Maybe in two decades I'll pay some codefags to do the dirty work for me if I ever make enough money but not right now.
>the body was too long.
This is what I was talking about. Years later we still have post limits.
>>11473

>legitimate peak intellectualism and culture


Jesus dude, do you read what you type? Nothing on the internet, be it an image board or a scientific dissertation discussion over IM is that. We're all just a bunch of retards jamming our fat fingers into the plastic of our keyboards.

Pull your head away from your ass.

> But whatever like I said I could be over rating this whole thing.


Yes, most definitely.

> nostalgic yet comforting feeling of being a newfag


Because you're not anymore, and none of us who have been on the internet for decades are. We're old now, we're the curmudgeons that spout that "intellectualism and culture" if our retarded ramblings can even be called that.

> Don't know how to code, don't have the time to either.


So you're as stupid as we think you are and can't contribute to a solution to your problem. Mommy is calling you back to the basement now.

> Years later we still have post limits


Because no one cares after a certain point.

I'm not. If you are that's good on you.

Can't disagree here.

>whoa faggot you mean you didn't major in engineering and went for philosophy instead? You must not be very smart.
>whoa faggot you didn't major in the arts and went for quantum physics instead? You must be pretty boring.
>whoa faggot you turned down the Football Team? You must be a fucking weakling.
Coding a site on the scale I envision it in is literally a lifetimes work. It's easier to make a million dollars first and hire a competent team of coders to do that for me and buy a decent server.
Don't have the time.
Don't wanna know it.
>Because no one cares after a certain point.
So much for contribution in the face of low quality huh?

meals on wheels isn't really that random. It's a pretty big organization that's quite popular.

Aw shit all imageboards are going to die within a decade aside from cuckchan and Dudchan aren't they?
