Theres an ios thing called memrise, I don't know what other systems it works on.

 No.16602

Memorize the hiragana and katakana phonetic systems with something like this quiz tool: http://www.gyford.com/japanese/

Then learn only the basic particles and verb conjugations from: http://www.guidetojapanese.org/grammar_guide.pdf
or somewhere else.

Then decode Yotsuba&!, a children's manga with Furigana, that is the phonetic characters written above each kanji. The basic-level grammar of Japanese you'll find in Yotsuba&! is surprisingly simple, so simple you could read it by having a single index card worth of grammatical rules next to you.

Look up words you don't know at http://jisho.org/

Then you've got your foot in the door.

Who said anything about new users? I was talking about projects, /fg/ is extremely chill compared to any of the other boards and it's pretty much a neutral zone where what you do is what really matters instead of who you are outside of this site. That's actually the core of anonymous imageboards.
I also don't see how making fun of other sites has anything to do with game developing, You're disregarding the main point of my post.
But if you want to go that way, I am happy to make you remember that tumblr threw shit at us too, so if we fucking laugh of them it's more than justified.

Implying making fun of people actually labeling us as the terror of the fandom or something while spreading lies is a terrible thing! Oh yeah we're such a monster site! Fun is horrendous and evil!

No seriously, not joking, what do you want us to do instead, respond their flames with flame? We just decide to have a laugh or two, Ubuu didn't start situations with other communities, never.

Are forums/message boards dead?

For the past few years imageboards have been my main source of online interaction and discussion, but lately I've become bored of chans and have been fondly remembering the days when forums reigned supreme.

I know there are still many large forums out there, but what I miss are the smaller forums where there was a sense of community and you could have small talk and make friends with similarly minded people. The large forums that are still popular are just too impersonal and subject oriented to give the same experience.

So, are they dead, and if not, where are they?

Social media killed most sites. vBulletin and the like reigned supreme because they were the main means of communication. It was also a time where people were scared shitless about posting their info online (places like MySpace got a lot of flak because retards would post too much info and they'd get doxxed or attacked irl).

Nowadays it's highly encouraged to post your life online. Big companies even force you to do so in order to use their services (e.g. YouTube/Google, facebook). The new generation is growing up in a society that pressures them to post their lives online for school, work, and socializing purposes, so it's only naturally that anonymous and small websites like these are on the decline.

Saicomania
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2006224/

A documental about what could be the very first punk rock band of the world, active from 1964 to 1966 in FUCKING PERU. Pretty rad considering the time and specially the place. They remained pretty obscure until a few years ago.

Searching for Sugar man
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2125608/

The story of Sixto Rodriguez, a Detroit musician that recorded a few songs in the 70's and then disappeared from the sight of the world. He remained obscure and forgotten in the US, but he hit it pretty great in South Africa, becoming some kind of Elvis. The thing is, he never knew about it, until 1998 when fans contacted him to come to South Africa and play.

I'll go ahead and post some Vice docs I've seen. It's a shame the ones in Japan mostly have English only speakers as the host. That doesn't really work well though generally its shot well.

A documentary about artificial sex/romance objects from 2005, before VR etc. really took off. The second half is especially interesting where we start to see some of the enthusiasts. See if you can spot the Azumanga plushes in the last guy's room.

Hey guys. I was wondering if someone could help me out, and I figured you guys might have some info.

I remember from a few years back seeing a thread on /x/ I think on 4chan about a japanese hikikomori girl livestreaming 24/7 in her apartment. I don't remember ever seeing her leave her apartment, talk to the camera, or act as if she was being filmed in any way.

She usually just layed around in a pile of blankets or browsed her computer. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? I doubt someone will, but I just remembered it for the first time in years and realized how surreal and similar to Yume Nikki it was. I wish I had further info.

Thanks.
