Every bunker/alt board seems to be getting quieter. I'm really really starting to miss old 8ch
8chan, it was nice while it lasted.
What has 8chan been replaced with? Could you link the URL?
8kun is pretty much dead at this point since Jim Watkins just milks Qanon for money.
The webring had replaced the original 8chan community.
8chan.moe/8chan.se is good for vidya discussion as /v/ is the only active board on that site.
To answer the OP's question
I browse lainchan, 8moe, kissu, and some webring boards constantly.
I browse uboachan sometimes but not often, due to how dead uboachan is nowadays.
Halfchan quality is literal garbage and could include malicious ADs anytime like they did before. Here is an archived KiwiFarms post of hiroyuki including malicious ADs in halfchan back in late 2017: https://archive.fo/LAKnE
Mostly i've been hanging out at:
There was also that decentralized darknet or something imageboard /pol/ supposedly went to, but i have no idea how populated it is or if its even still online, i can't be bothered to go through all that techy stuff just to check.
But crystal.cafe says:
Comments from male users are not desired
and wizchan.org says:
You must be a male virgin
Like i give a fug :DDD
How do you keep up with cc? That's like 4chan, just a huge pile of shit.
Are you implying that 4chan isn't a huge pile of shit that's filled with normies and newfags? 4chan today is just a low quality porn website, anyone who wasn't cancer-blind and actually cared about free speech abandoned it in 2014.
Not that anon, but he did say "it was a huge pile of shit" and never implied 4chan was any good.
Honestly, the only imageboards I visit nowadays are chill ones like this, kakashi or sushi. Although it's mostly out of nostalgia and not so much to post anymore.
Yeah, alright. In that case to answer question >>21004
asked, i'm going to crystal cafe for the same reason i go to wizchan, basically i'm doing research to better understand this divide between men and women from both perspectives, i think that loneliness and unhealthy resentment towards the opposite gender is becoming a real problem in society.
As someone who genuinely bears the resentment against women, I can say that my loathing comes from intense social anxiety and embarrassment during my formative years. We make our judgements of groups of people based on experiences with individual people, which I have done. I know that you shouldn't apply traits to entire groups of people but alas. I don't know the case with crystal.cafe, but I think that there are more people that post both on there than there are posters on just wizchan because trying to enforce something identifiable on an anonymous imageboard attracts other people for some reason.
I (and probably others) am just looking for a safe space where I don't have to feel anxious and bad for doing the things that I enjoy
Interesting. Although most people don't use such sites. Therefore does it really help to understand and recognize that divide? Wiz and CC are just the bottom of the barrel that is society, so are they representative?>>21006
Thank you for covering me, anon. It is as you said, I never wanted to imply that 4Chan is good. On the contrary, it is possibly the worst out there and exactly that is the impression I have from CC. It feels like a 4Chan that only wants female users.
Anyway I drift from small ib to small ib too, looking for a home, denying the fact that the good years are gone. Nostalgia is becoming poisonous but little exchanges like that one keep me going.
>>21010>Wiz and CC are just the bottom of the barrel that is society, so are they representative?
Sure they are representative. What would be the point to look at happy, well adapted people when my goal is to understand the troubled ones. Its easy to simply dismiss them as scum of society.
May I ask about your motivation? Why do you want to understand them?
Its not that i care a lot about society's problems, just like most people i mostly care just about myself, but i have an inquisitive mind, so researching random things is what i do for entertainment and i don't care if i don't get to use that knowledge in my advantage, but mostly things i learned become useful at some point in life.
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.
