I was an excited crystal.cafe user when it first launched spinning out of lolcow.farm's /g/ – I was excited just to interact with other women anonymously without the baggage of the surrounding toxicity, and it genuinely began as an extremely cozy imageboard. Haven't been on it in forever, though. Last I checked, place was in shambles, full of bad attempts at bait and looking to become an r/gendercritical parallel, which made me wish I never posted there at all.
I use lainchan consistently. Also always visit 4/vp/ every time a new mainline Pokemon game comes out because it is honest to god peak hilarity every single time.>>21011
For what it's worth, I still think evaluating wiz and cc as a sample of the bottom of the barrel is misguided. You are researching imageboard users with a strong attachment to their gender. It might be interesting to see what you identify as "the bottom of the barrel" on 'normie' websites and compare their userbases.
Even if that's the case, she isn't wrong.
>>20763>I'm guessing that 8channel or 8kun or whatever substitute site isn't as nice as the original 8chan?
I am 50% sure that I made the post you are replying to. The substitute site I use is one of the webring ones, primarily about anime, and I find it adequate.
Wizchan, 8chan. I have used 4chan in the past but those cunts have IP blocked my whole country and they also block Tor exit nodes.
has a weird-ass rule about being too 3D, even 3DCG is disliked. Otherwise chill but slow.
Can't post on https://lewd.sx/
I use 22chan almost primarily, pretty comfy and the people are friendy. Heavily moderated but it's not like their trigger happy to ban people, only blatant rule breakers/cp, porn and shit.
A bunch of ex users raided the site, and activity slowed down and now things are picking up again. i hope that board stays alive for a long time.
It is. Currently my favorite IB.
there is operator chan while not military per se I think it's about as close as you can get
No? it's been up for a while.
Ubochan is perfect though…
Argh.. Kirt is using 420chan to boost his twitch streaming..
I think Reddit is fine for hobbies. I use it for fishkeeping and cute pictures of parrots.
As long as you stay away from the main and popular page I think it's fine. including meme pages
uboachan cause its one of the only chans I don't have to see constant slurs and hatred towards LGBT people
it's not as terrible if you only look for the exact shit you need, and avoid the comments unless necessary
otherwise you'd have better luck (and hygiene) rummaging through a dumpster once a week
Just go through the list of imageboards linked on this thread and see for yourself
Many of website that i visited, uboachan are better.
Does leddit count? Haha.>>21928
Yes but uboa is best for my purposes.
I don't really have sites that I use reguraly.
Nowhere fells like home, so I just visit here and there and then leave again.
Honestly I would be interested to hear what the few people left here are using.
Stay awhile & listen
I hope to make the answer to this "None." Imageboards, in fact all social media, can provide very little of value except a waste of time and very mediocre entertainment. I think I used them because i'm lonely, but there has to be better ways than actively decreasing my quality of life by browsing sites filled with nothing but shit opinions and people spamming the same things over and over.
I've used tons over the years. Right now I visit a few: Uboachan, Sushi, Zzzchan, Endchan, Lainchan, 4chan. Any others are visited very sporadically. I do like that they all have unique cultures, although I have begun to use imageboards less and less over time. There was… one imageboard I had used for years but left permanently as of recent because of some major revelations I had, mainly that it was an extremely toxic, cult-like place filled with close-minded, unhelpful people. Even though me leaving felt horrible (And I still feel bad sometimes), it was incredibly illuminating and has opened up my life to all kinds of new experiences…
Imageboards are incredibly cold places. Even in tight-knit communities people are still paranoid and hostile towards each other over incredibly petty things, and drama runs rampant, if you have any "wrong" opinions people pile on top of you and start labeling you all sorts of things. Its off putting to any potential new users and makes frequent users afraid to voice their thoughts and question things. It kills the site.
4chan honestly feels nice for hobby boards. There is A LOT of whining on other imageboards that 4chan is dead, its filled with "normalfags", etc. I've come to learn that they're all just idiots and that 4chan is just fine. Its an ever-changing place used by tens, if not hundreds of millions of people across the world. "Anonymous/Imageboard culture" is whatever people make it, and those who try to dictate its growth or try to control it are bound to be disappointed.
4chan is dead from a spiritual, essential perspective
Hardly. Its an ever-changing mass of tens of millions of users. Big general boards are usually filled with trash but there are still fine areas of the site.
lainchan and nanochan.
I mainly browse 4chan and erischan.
Used to browse lainchan and arisuchan. Perhaps masterchan back in the day and a few obscure tor boards.
Im on lolcow all day tbh. Prob the easiest imageboard ive found to just be completely entertained by for hours
